Intro
This is an unusual way to play Shen.
But it is very funny to see the enemies fall by some hits.
I can only advice you to play this build if you are an advanced Shen player.

Pros
- Immortal 1 on 1 fighter
- Strong shield given by the Ultimate and Feint
- Great ganker and supporter
- Fast damage
- Funny to play

Cons
- Dies fast in teamfights
- Hard to play
- Needs to be fed

Playstyle

You can hold a lane solo but don´t go for mid.

Until Lvl 9:
- Try to stay defensive until you have Sheen
- Use Vorpal Blade in combination of Ki Strike and the effect of Sheen to hurt your
enemies massively. With some luck you give a critical hit at the right moment.
- With that combination you can attack tanks or champions with low life. But try to
prevent attacking champions with a high life regenartion.

Until Lvl 13:
- You should have Giant´s Belt and another part of Rylai´s Crystal Scepter.
- Use your ultimate (Stand United) to gank the other lanes. Go for kills by using
Shadow Dash,normal hit and the combination (describtion up there). After that
combination the enemies will have low life and the team will do the rest.
- The red and the blue buff will help you to do kills.
- If you aren´t ganking very much try to farm creep waves to get fast Lvl 13 and
some money.
- Ganking is very important but fight 1 on 1 too. You have to calculate the damage
you do and get.

After Lvl 13:
- Try to find situations where you can fight 1 on 1.
- Now use your ultimate to save the lives of your teammates.
- In 1 on 1 fights you are nearly immortal.
You should have so much AP that Feint block a damage from 400-600.
Vorpal Blade will deal a hard damage and heal you very strong.
With the Attack speed of Nashor´s Tooth you can easily kill each
kind of champions. Don´t forget to taunt them.
- Beware of heavy casters like Ryze. You are no real tank. You can
kill them but you need a kinf of cleverness.
- In teamfights you should stay in the background. I can only repeat
that you are no real tank so don´t taunt the whole enemies team.
- Having buffs is not as important as it is before Lvl 13.

Try it in a free game to get the feeling for that build.
You will see it is playable and you can solo Nashor easily.

Much fun!
