Please read this before trying Build and Use Build before you rate. This is my Second Shen build which I find to be the most fun to play. I have a tank Shen build that I always ravage as but it's not as fun and I don't follow one of Shen's main purposes... To be a support character. So I took my old build and changed it. In this Shen build you begin as a tank as all Shen's should building up not only health but armour too. Then after Sunfire cape and Randumiun's Omen you must buy boots. So still following tank build I purchase Mercury treads(which are very helpful against any mage). Now to bring down my cooldowns I begin to build Nashor's Tooth. This helps with cooldown reduction and attack speed. Now usually game is over by now but if your in for a long go I advise you go with either Frozen Mallet and Leviathon if your looking for more of a Tank finish. Or for survival purposes like if you really dont want to die I'd advise to get Guardian Angel and Aegis of the Legion. NOW, most people comment on my choice of smite and say jungling Shen is a terrible choice. They are always proven wrong by me as Smite helps kill minions early in game and having the mastery for it increases your gold early on too. Please do not rate this build unless you have really tried it a few times. Hints: Try to avoid Ranged characters with Shen early on in game especially Ashe, Twitch and Teemo because of their Slowing and Poisoning moves. Although if fed, Shen can easily shut down Teemo's Poison and take out his Low Health in a matter of seconds. To be a Tank you must have Feint so build it as your secondary skill, but always make Vorpal Blade your primary cause it rocks. Follow this Build and you'll be dominating as Shen in no time.
O.K. so some games when it doesn't matter how good you do your terammates will feed and you will get owned. After realising I'm not getting any kills I decided not to get Leviathon and boots first, There weren't very many mages so I decided to go with mobility. Now after this game I tried to not be a hypocrit and listened to the people commenting on this build just like they should try my way, and so I went boots second. I now play this build from tiime to time and I think that the third Shen (the new one) should be used by those who've perfeced shens moves with timing. So it is a full tank with speed out of battle. Please now try the third build if you havn't
