Introduction

Shen is a support tank, with the latest patch he has regained alot of his damage early game and can harass with ease. This guide will allow you to solo very well and can be modified to lane as well. Shen cannot not mid or jungle with this guide go find another champion to play.


Guide Top

Runes

The runes ive selected will give you good early game power and late game power with 15% extra attack speed to proc your passive faster and extra armor and magic resist to help late game. The 4.5% extra health with make it so you do not need warmong.


Guide Top

Masteries

These masteries i chose are for tanking and i recommend not to change them but its up to you how you play with him.


Guide Top

Items

starting out with a dorans shield will help alot when soloing or laning i havnt found anything better to start with. Once you get your heart of gold you will start racking up alot of gold quick along with youyr assists. build your boots depending if they have more AD or AP

Build Ninja Tabi if more AD and Mercury Treds if more AP or stuns

Build your Sunfire cap and chose one of the next items depending on their team Force of Nature or Thornmail

next get Spirit visage for extra magic and health regen and proceed to build the heart of gold to Randuim's Omen or sell it to make room for Guardian Angel


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

For Summoner Spells i would pick Teleport and Flash but its up to you

Flash can be used to get away or position yourself for a shadow dash

Teleport allows you to be anywhere on the map depending if your team is warding or not
it will allow you to gank when your solo top as shen


Guide Top

Tactics

Shen can last hit minions with his Q nicely and it will let him regen health fast allowing to continue the assault while soloing

Shadow Dash can be used to go through thin walls and set up ganks very easily allowing for escapes

you can ult a stealthed champ like twitch, teemo, or evelyn and the enemy team wont see it coming

Remember when you ult someone you will always be transported behind the friendly champion
