Shen The Eye Of Twilight
Hello everybody, welcome to my Shen guide. This is my first guide so please do not give me down vote because if you happen to see any mistakes just comment below.
Shen is my best and favourite tank champion in the league of legends, many people like Shen at top lane but in the jungles I think he can be as good.
Pros and Cons
-Save TeamMates with his ulti
-Strong Harrassment early game
-Good Ganks with taunt
-More defense than other Tanks
Cons-Low damage dealt
-Low kills and low assist
-Clear jungle slowly
-Less Hp then other tanks
For Shen I would start at Wraiths, then i would move onto Lizard Elder or (Red) Then you leave jungle to suprize mid with a gank after that you would go back to Wraiths if you are under level then take the Ancients golem next or give it to the ap mid lane unless they dont need mana and rely on other sources like energy. Then again leave the jungle to suprize top with a gank. Then head to Wraiths then if your not too low HP then your try golems. Teleport back to fountain to replinish your health and items.
With Shen when your enemie is pushing the lane and your low hp use your Vorpal Blade to Cs and you most likely wont get damaged.You can also approach the minions with your shield up and running and try not to push or you most likely get ganked by the others
For Jungle Shen I would have Flash and Smite
or Ghost and Smite
or Exhuast and Smite
or Teleport and Smite
Ki Strike (Passive)Ki Strike Your free extra damage every 8 secs Fun little passive that deals out some extra damage every 8 seconds. This is good in early games to get the last hit on minions and maybe harassing your enemies.
Vorpal Blade(Q)Hit and heal This will be your main attack (you only have 1). This attack is very useful in the laning phase to help your teammates heal and harass your enemies (ranged attack). The heal is not that great since you will be having quite high health but it's very useful in the laning phase so you can heal up a little to stay longer in your lane. You want to spam this ability since the energy will be back when the CD is over.
Feint (W)Feint Your shield This ability can be very useful because you're a tank and want to take as much as damage on you as you can. A lot of summoners forget to use the ability but it can be very good to block towers, some abilities of enemies, ...
Since you will be a tank/support, the shield won't be so high as AP Shen but it will still block some.
Shadow Dash (E)Escape or taunt your enemies This ability is really useful in every situation. You can use this ability to run away if you're almost about to get killed but, it can really be a lifesaver for your teammates thanks to the taunt. If you use it right your teammate can escape from champions. You want to use this ability also to catch up running champions and try to hit them when they run away, they will be taunted and have to attack you.
Stand United (R)Help your allies with a shield and a teleport gank The ultimate of Shen can be used for multiple purposes. At first looks, it's a quite powerful shield for your teammates but it can also be a way to teleport yourself to a champion you want to help! Using this ability can suddenly make 1 vs 1 lost fight into a winning one since you shield your mate and you just teleport in to help him out.
