Lore

There exists an ancient order originating in the Ionian Isles dedicated to the preservation of balance. Order, chaos, light, darkness -- all things must exist in perfect harmony for such is the way of the universe. This order is known as the Kinkou and it employs a triumvirate of shadow warriors to uphold its causes in the world. Shen is one of these shadow warriors, entrusted with the sacred duty of Watching the Stars - exercising judgment untainted by prejudice.

Born to a clan whose members have decorated the ranks of the Kinkou for generations, Shen was trained his entire life to become the Eye of Twilight, and thereupon to dispassionately determine what must be done in the interests of equilibrium. As his final trial to ascend to this position, he was made to attend the Takanu, a ceremony in which his father was tortured before his eyes to test his resolve. Any reaction whatsoever would have resulted in his immediate disqualification, but he never averted his gaze and never blinked, not once. As the Eye of Twilight, Shen must make decisions that would buckle the wills of ordinary men, removing all emotion from the equation. He now works with his fellows Akali and Kennen to enforce the balance of Valoran. This hallowed pursuit has unsurprisingly led the triumvirate to the Fields of Justice.

The Eye of Twilight sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium.

Farming

Shen is not a very good farmer, because of his low damage early game. You must be very accurat with your auto attacks and with your Q (it won't deal much damage, because you won't level it).If you manage to max your Q first you'll be able to farm pretty good with it, because it has only 4 sec cooldown ( in max rank).

Teamfights

Shen's job in teamfights is to tank. You must stay in the front line and go in first. One good taunt by you can pretty much win you the fight. You can easyly protect your carry. Just R + E and it will be fine.

The Ult

Shen's ult is one of the strongest ult's in the game. That's the reason why he gets banned so often. With your ult you can make a 2 for 0 exchange into a 2 for 4 exchange. You can run teleport too, so you can go all over the map.
