Shen's Ultimate Tanking Guide
Shen, Stand United
Disclaimer: I Dremu play Shen in this way, This is not a damaging guide, Or quick kill guide, This is a health tanking guide. I do not copy anyone elses guides, Any similarities to any other guide is just a coincidence, Accusations are not necessary.
Introduction to Shen
This is said by most people to be the best tank in the game, I thoroughly agree, Shen is a tank that requires a lot of health, If you just stack armor, You are sure to fail.
He has the ability to heal himself because of his skill Vorpal Blade. This is your main skill when using Shen. If you follow this guide correctly you may end games like this:
or like this
It mainly depends on how your team is, This is not meant to pull teams, If you have a noob teammate feeding throughout the game then read the alternatives I will list.
This skill should be used as his main attack, It will heal him and his allies while dealing sufficient damage.
Feint is a great skill to keep Shen alive and well, If you are taking a good amount of damage be sure to pop this quickly and get out of fire.
Shadow Dash is Shen's taunt skill, This is a good skill to use when near your tower against an enemy, It'll get them attacking you while making the tower then attack them.
Exactly what the name says, Stand United gives you and a teammate anywhere on the map invulnerability while teleporting you to them, This is great when an ally is in trouble.
First off I suggest focusing on the use of your Vorpal Blade skill. Using this on a minion while other minions are low health is pretty efficient healing them as well as damaging.
A rotation i suggest when fighting againt a champion would be
Vorpal Blade, Feint, When they begin to run away use Shadow Dash then Vorpal Blade once more, Broken down
Broken down Rotation
Q,W,E,Q__R (if escaping)
With Shen, Team work is a big priority, In order to win any fight you must work together. With Shen you have a couple team saving skills, Shadow dash useful for getting the enemy off a low health teammate giving them time to escape, Stand United your ultimate basically used only for team saving, Using Stand United at the right times can really give your side an advantage and their side a disadvantage, for instance.
Say Your teammate is running with low health and another enemy is chasing with medium health, You then use stand united on your teammate, This shield him giving time to finally escape while making you teleport to them giving able to finish off the one chasing your teammate, This gives you your chances to down an enemy champion while saving a friendly one.
This guide was made to help those wanting to be a better Shen, This is how I play my Shen, I've done good most of the time, It does not take much skill to use this guide, However it takes some skill to use Shen in general, If you would like to play with me at all add me, My name is Dremu ingame and on here.
Note: Check out my other guide(s) if you want, Who knows it may help you.
