Great Harassment / No Armor or MR
Great Damage / Needs to be everywhere
Intimidating / Needs ult to start a fight
Shen's Ultimate Challenge
Shen's ultimate challenge at level 6 is his ultimate. Depending on how your good with map awareness, many people will love you. Your ult will make a huge change in a fight since its a shield and a higher number in battle. Also, try to get into fights since your team wont rage at you and you helped in a fight or saved.
For Runes, I use flat armor pen Marks and Quints, cooldown reduction glyphs, and crit chance seals
I take these armor pen since Shen shines mid-late game. Not to mention break their armor without the use of
For Masteries, I take 21/0/9 and focusing offensive early game and mid game. Since this is a AD Shen build, You'll see later on as I explain soon.
By all means to switch the items, get something that will improve you, and the team. like mercury tread's if they have a lot of CC. In fights, get a
since taunting, you'll get focused even after the taunt ends.
Team Work is one of the hardest Shen can ever do since he has his ult and his taunt. You wanna tell your teammate that you have ult and just watch at a SAFE place and ult in.
The moment you go into the fight, it will probably become a team fight. From watching, most people continue to chase or fail to run away in time during the teleport time. The moment you land a taunt, go full out and focus which is the most important.
Now, in order to start a fight. DO NOT ULT AT THE START. Its crucial to save it until you ult the one who's being focused on your team. Try to taunt when there's 2 or more people within the range of taunt, making it useful.
For example, when its a team fight and you dont have your ult, try to say that you didnt have your ult or tell them they started when i didnt have ult.
I find this the best of all summoner spells, due to the fact that its a slow, and reduce effects, Take this advantage to taunt possible during the time.
My 2nd favorite for DPS Shen cause if your taunt is on cooldown, you can flash out. Or finish off the enemy your chasing.
Teleport is a great item for Shen for any build, but I prefer Exhaust instead. Sure teleport is VERY HELPFUL, but in a team fight, you only have 1 escape summoner spell, and a taunt.
Once again, very useful in chasing since you can catch up easily or start a team fight with a taunt. This isnt useful when your trapped in a corner panicking when your taunt is on cooldown.
Since this saves all the towers in the lanes, prevents push, and your slow with 380 movement speed.
Makes Shen feel like a support, since he saves people with his taunt, or ult, or checks dragon,blue,red,baron,ganking spots.
Cleanse gets rid of every CC the moment you press cleanse, and gets rid of 65% of CC off you.
Its a very good escape method also.
The fact that if they focus you so hard to the point you cant use anything, you can revive and ult back in since people forget about revive.
Heal is a situational spell were it has a backfire. Sure it heals, but the fact that all heals are debuff.
I honestly don't know why you would take this since people are scared of Shen's taunt and burst, and the range limit is small.
For getting free gold from minions since Shen barely farms at level 6 and above.
Sometimes only 1 person on the team takes ignite, and you think about the team comp, you could take ignite.
Things you need to Know
Missing Shadow Dash will make a huge cost making them have the advantage.
Use Ult wise at level 1 since it absorbs 200 damage.
Watch for things that cant be taunted, or either cleansed.
I recommend using any program to talk with others (Skype, Teamspeak, Ventrillo, Others) so that it'll be easier to communicate,
