Introduction

Hi, This its my First Guide for Shen, is a little different than the others builds, but has given me very good results.

first of all, excuse me if my English is not very good, I'm using the google translator beacuse my language is Spanish, and I'm not very good with English, if I have any mistake, tell me

Now you might wonder, Why shen Ap? shen skills, use ap, only the shadow dash does not use ap, if we put a little app to their abilities, we can protect more with our ult, the feint will protect us more, and the Vorpal will do more damage

I would like to leave their comments and opinions about this build to improve gradually

Update

Skills

with the last patch made ​​the feint and the vorpal blade shen are more useful, as appropriate, and changed the way up to the tanking skills a little more for the feint, and do some more damage at early game, while to better farmer

Spells

Change the Exhaust by Teleport beacuse teleport, its better to protect Lanes, solo lane
Shen its a Ninja that never lost a fight, teleport its great for that ^^

Thanks for ludacolo

Items

Thx for Feedback, i test to get First Heart of Gold before Giant's Belt, His passive Help so much at Early Game, and u can get more Fast Rylai's Crystal Scepter

Runes

Marks

Greater Mark of Insight: this Runes can Help you at Early game to do Farm and harassment with your Vorpal Blade, if you're not confident of your abilities as a tank, try...


Greater Mark of Warding: Very helpful runes, if u dont have experience with shen, pick this runes, and it give u nice survibility at early game

Seal
Greater Seal of Vitality
Greater Seal of Vitality: A tank need health, These runes are very helpful to have more survibility, I think these are the best runes or you can try...


Greater Seal of Evasion: these also good runes, many people like runes of evasion, in my personal opinion, I recommend the runes of vitality

Glyph

Greater Glyph of Shielding: any tank needs magic resist, These runes can help us have a little of MR, or u can try...


Greater Glyph of Focus: other good runes, but shen is a tank, not a caster, although it is good to have cooldown Reduction for our ult

Quintessence

Greater Quintessence of Fortitude: this its a Must-have runes for Shen, all tank need a nice amount of health, especially at early game

Under Construcction

Summoner Spells


Its a must-have Spell for Shen, u can escape of dangerous situations, or u can use whit your shadow dash to catch a enemy


i think this its More helpfull spell that Exhaust, more if you go solo lane, if u think its a waste, cuz shen have a teleport with his ult, i think Its better helpfull use it when u have a partner i a dagerous situations, and use teleport to help ur team

Optional Spell


Another Good Spell for Shen, use it to catch a enemy, escape of dangerous situations, or Blind a enemy Dps


Another alternative, especially at early game, or you can use to help your team


only if u Will do Jungle

Skill Sequence

in skills, try to give priority in this way


Ur Ult its the most important of Shen, try to use when the enemy team focus a member of ur team

Vorpal Blade its a Nice skill to do Harass, to get last Hist on minions, or u can heal ur life with it

Feint dont Block so much damage, but with a little of Ap, can block a nice amount of damage, and can save u from potential ult, like Requiem

a Nice initiator of team fights, it can help to save ur team, cancel a ult like Bullet Time or Crowstorm, or catch a enemy

I always try to maximize Vorpal blade, give 1 point in shadow dash on level 2, 1 point on level 4 in feint and 1 point on Stand United, when my Vorpal blade is in level 5, maximizes feint with Stand United, and finally maximize Shadow Dash

Unique Skills

"Shen is a potent combo with , , , or , as he can ulty to the 3 stealthers without revealing them and get an excellent game. Also, you can combine ulties with TF to piss the other team off, backdoor, gank, w/e you want."

From Stormagent's Build

Farming

"Now this is important, if you are laning with a carry, focus on zoning the other team and harassing them while letting your carry farm freely. If you are laning with a mage or fighter, farm your heart out, you need it as much as them, your build is expensive. Your vorpal blade is a great farming tool, with a low cd and the fact that you use energy. Don't be disappointed if your farming drops off mid-game, as team fights should be starting and you should spend more time supporting your team."


From Stormagent's Build
