Introduction

Hello, and welcome to Exl.Tenacity.Bot's Shen guide.

I made this guide as one my friend's request as most of them were amazed with what my Shen can do.

Shen is one of the most supportive yet tanky Champs out there in the League.

Getting Shadow Dash as your first skill will yield a high chance of getting first blood in you lane and if they decide to dive you or your team mate, you taunt them under the turret to secure the kill.
But maxing Vorpal Blade first will ensure lane sustain and will relieve you at the most tedious times specially when farming under the turret on low life .
As you can see I maxed Feint last, because the shield scaling ain't that high.
Of course getting your ultimate at 6,11,and 16.

Items

Now,we get it down, down HARD.
Start off with Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion.
On your first recall, you should be able to get your GP5 Heart of Gold.
Farm up until you can afford Mercury's Treads.
Start ganking to earn up for Warden's Mail for your Randuin's Omen later on.
Once you have Warden's Mail, purchase your first damage dealer and one of your best friends its Sheen. Then finish off your Randuin's Omen.Now let's be friendly to our teammates and let's get an Aegis of Legion the aura helps boost you and your team's defensive stats ,while also adding some damage. We now get CRAZY,CRAZY with attack speed, that's right purchase your Recurve Bow or finish off your Wit's End. Now get Phage for that health and decent slow or finish off your Trinity Force and lastly your Abyssal Scepter.

Team Work

This guide is great for use with Lilarcor.Bot's Wukong-The Clashy King as it will allow Wukong to remain in the middle of it all ,and yet survive after the clash, as the AP scaling of Shen's Stand United is fairly high.
