Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Shen, The Eye of Twilight
Ok guys and gals, here i go for my first build post so dont be hating.
Shen is a tank yes but mainly used as pure support (unless of course you get fed, heh). Some of you may already know this but most of you dont. Anyways im here too tell you that Shen can, SOLO MID, i personally do it all the time. The outcome is great and its almost impossible too die given my Skilling order.
How too play
I chose E first as a quick escape mechinism, hope i spelled that right, but you will be maxing Q afterwords too farm at the beginning. Feint works wonders if the apposing Champion is hurr***ing you a lot, wich makes me LoL, cause they get too cocky when close too the tower. When this happens use E too taunt ,tower will agro and focus the person whos taunted, hit W ,Feint, and than hit them with Q. This combo works wonders and makes them big chickens when laning against you. Alright now its time too learn when too use his ult. At the start of the game ,usually between 15-20 minutes, you get those players who love too tower dive for kills. Well sorry about your luck Vlad i just ulted my 100hp partner hit fortify and you DIED. Also use your ult when a partner is in a sticky situation, like 3-5v1, and they happen to have PERMA STUN well usually that ally would be dead but we have our life saving ult. So lets turn the tide and maybe get a kill or two.
When in team fights your ult comes in handy when the apposing team is only targeting your squishies, aka ashe, veigar, twitch etc..., ult that squishy so they dont die than EWQ into their group, Q for their dps, this technique goes a long way.
Boots 1 and 3 health pots, or candy corns, always this is not optional its mandatory. When you have lets say 2-3k gold, 4k if you farmed well, get Heart of Gold and Warden's Mail wich you will make into Randuin's Omen later. After these items you will be aiming for Warmogs ,best item for Shen late game. After that finish Randuin's and work on Thornmail, makes for excellent tower tanking. If the game isnt over yet work on getting more magic resistance ,why not, and what better item than Force of Nature gives a ***ping amount of magical resistance along with huge health regan.
I chose these masteries because it brings Shen out too his fullest potential. This is what makes shen so godly for mid, and also because he uses energy.
Well some of you may disagree on my runes but o well. My build never fails so hah. I chose this setup cause well lets see. Magic Pen is mandatory for last hitting creeps duh. While magic resists help so much late game, heavy ap teams make me lawl. Not too mention spamming my ult so often its crazy. Health always works so why not get those health per level quintessence.
Well I'm done for now so post and see how well you liked my build.
And always remember
I type /t
And you hear
"Your already dead, you just haven't caught up yet."
