Spells

Recommended:
Heal - In late game not much help yourself, but use the Heal to help in a team fight or save a friend
Cleanse - Prevent taunt, slow, etc ...
Exhaust - It is very good against a DPS, or to run or chase
Ghost - In addition to run or chase you can use a combo, using Shadow Dash to taunt enemies to your allies escape, and thereafter activates the Ghost and it also saves yourself

Abilities

Vorpal Blade - At the beginning of the game vorpal blade's damage is high, so in the early game you have to use vorpal blade whenever possible, preferably at an enemy champion, if the enemy is on the side of the tower, you can use Feint to absorb the damage of the tower, but beware, if the enemy has a stun or taunt, do not.
This ability is also very good for combos with Ki Strike

Feint - Combo that ability to Vorpal Blade you can spend some time without losing life, and even win a little, and combo with Shadow Dash you can get away

Shadow Dash - Used to escape, chasing someone or help a friend when he needs to get away, but beware, Shadow Dash spends a lot of energy, if you're running away from an enemy, go to a bush to be invisible and use the dash in the opposite direction of your escape route, because you will recover over 50 energy and will deceive the enemy
If an enemy is attacking the tower, taunt him, because the tower will attack him

Stand United - Always look at the life of your allies, and when you use the ultimate in some ally, use Shadow Dash to stop it from being attacked

Items

Start with the following items:

The potions are to ensure that you will stay long in the lane, because you might have to use Vorpal Blade on the enemy near the tower
If you are good at the game and your allies are killing more do:

If you are weak in the game or the opposing team is better, don't buy leviathan, because if you die you miss the stacks, you have to get the stacks with assists, try not to kill any enemy, a spellcaster or a DPS needs more kills than you, and you will survive longer in the team fight, to assist without attacking the opponent use Shadow Dash on the enemy, if you use Stand United and the champion that you used kill someone, you get an assist

You can do one of the boots:

The Ninja Tabi is good because combo with the masteries and runes, but you should do Mercury's Treads if have a Rammus or Anivia for example in the other team
Another good item against the Rammus is:

The final builds are:
more armor:

more magic resist:

balanced:


The Randuin's Omen has its active that can be used in a team fight, to chase or escape. The Warmog's Armor is very good for the Shen because its Ki Strike greatly improves. The combination Force of Nature, Spirit Visage and Warmog's Armor is great, because the life regen gets too high.

At the end of the game you can tank the tower without losing too much life, because of your life regen
