Shen is a great farmer by farming with his Vorpal blade. Vorpal blade will help you get last hits on enemy champions or on minions.Shen has a great farming with his passive also.

Shen should ward early game so he would know how to react to gankers. If Shen doesn't ward,he will have a slow reaction and YOU won't have time to think of getting away.So I put a map above so you can see where you can ward,and that is helpful!

Summoner Spells

I picked these two Summoner Spells.The reason why I picked them is because flash is a really good way to taunt people and teleport is a fast way to get to your teamates,or saving a turret. Another reason is that all the summoner spells like Barrier,Clairvoyance,Clarity,Cleanse,Exhaust,Ghost,Heal,and Revive are not really good for Shen, but Ignite is very useful if your dont like using teleport.

Creeping / Jungling

Shen and his team can invade Red buff or Blue buff,but thats only if their man enough.Invading the buffs will sacrafice the life of your team so they won't get the buff also.It might cause a loss because the other team might've gotten pissed at you,but it doesn't mean you can still win.

My Summary about Shen is that he is a good tank,fighter,support,and rescuer.He is a teamate you should have as a tank so you can actually win a FRIGGING MATCH all the time :D.
