Pre-Introduction

So. This guide is NOT completed yet. I wrote it long ago but did not publish it. So now I'll publish and keep working on this.


Guide Top

Introduction

So Shaco played as a support?
Yes, while AD Shaco has to jungle (otherwise he'd get flamed hard) I prefer laning Shaco.
The outcome is the supporting AP Shaco.

This Shaco can be either the killer or the assisting one. Why? Your carry has to be good in last hitting / killstealing. Otherwise your and will get the kill.

So how far this is a support build depends on your playstyle and the items you gonna buy.

Playstyle

So how Shaco can support?

It's easy, just as every other support you gonna camp in the brush and annoy the enemy carry/sup.

How to annoy them? Just spam out of the brush, but care of your mana.


When the game starts and your mates are covering the jungler, rush down bottom lane and place in the enemy brush. As much as possible.

Be careful not to be seen while placing them. So after you placed some, and the enemy bot lane is coming, go out. They will cv it and see your missing mana.

What to do after they destroyed your first or you got firstblood, or it failed because of cv+minions and you standing there (getting the aggro of minions)

So, your enemies know about your now. Now what is to do?
Keep placing in both brushes, including the little brush on top of the lane. Plus some waypoints, near the brushes.

So that's it. The rest is the usual supporting role. Placing wards, destroying wards.

Yes you got your but you still need sight ward and . The are too conspicuous. The enemy will know that something is here if they see a popping up.


From here on the role of support Shaco changes again.
Since you cannot heal. What to do before, in, after fights?
What does AP Shaco do?
Right, while your carry/team is pushing a lane you set up a trap. But not all in one brush. They will all get 1shotted after they pop up.
So the rule is: placing 3 in every possible brush + waypoints. They are invisible so no problem.
Like this your effectivity is trippled. The will deal massive damage in fights, helping escaping team mates and killing fleeing enemys.

MAP MAP MAP

So you are support and want to help your carry who is in danger?
Sorry, you can not do anything, except of waiting for him running into your save brush or slowing the enemy / deceiving them with the clone.

ALWAYS REMEMBER: 1 DEALS MASSIVE DAMAGE SINCE YOU MAX THEM FIRST

Runes

Not much to say.

You can take normal supporter runes aswell. Runes are something you decide on yourself...


Guide Top

Items

Since I don't use CDR runes I take CDR items.

Start with a Doran's Ring and then a Fiendish Codex. After that I tend to take the Ionian Boots of Lucidity but beware, if you are going to buy Shurelya's Reverie you should take Sorcerer's Shoes or Mercury's Treads.
