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.
Marks: Armor penetration marks
for a strong early game.
Seals: Armor to gain defense in
early game and attack speed for
Glyphs: AD glyphs for early game juggling.
Quintessences':AD quints to jungle faster.
Cloth armor and 5 health potions for armor and health, wriggles lantern for fast jungling, mobility boots for mobility, sheen for mana and AP, Madreds Bloodrazor for AD and attack speed, Infinity edge for AD, Trinity force to become durable, Attack speed and mana and AP. Last Whisper to destroy tanks even faster.
Jack in the Box for jungling fast for lizard elder, Deceive to gank mid, 2 shiv poison for dodging and a ranged skill, Try to maximize 2 shiv to max the dodge and to make the skill stronger, next max Jack in the Box for traps, deceive is not maxed immediately, because it is just to escape and to get to the opponent.
Deceive- Shaco teleports to target location, immediately becoming invisible, the next attack is sure to be a critical strike
Jack in the Box- Shaco places a Jack in the box, turning invisible, when enemies come close, it fears and attacks the enemy.
2 Shiv Poison- (Passive) Shaco's shivs poison the enemy slowing them, and poisoned units can miss attacks.(Active) Shaco throws a knife, dealing damage to the enemy.
Hallucinate- Shaco creates a clon of himself that can be controlled and can attack like Shaco, when it dies, it explodes in knifes dealing damage.
In ranked games, using Shaco is hard because, you have to jungle and gank every 3 minutes, if not, someone might come out and kill your ally. Be sure not to use deceive often or else you can't escape. Also remember to place Jack in the Boxes everywhere you go if you need to escape, follow your Jack in the Boxes. Before every team fight, use your ultimate before it's too late.
Creeping / Jungling
Immidiatly go to the lizard, because when you gank mid,you will have an extra slow and extra AD, afterwards go to golem for mana regain, then gank the closest lane to you, tell them to push so it will take longer for them to get under turret protection. Go for the golem for extra gold, then gank the closest lane towards you.
In team fights, make sure your tank goes first, then your clone, for safety and they will target you clone, become invisible before casting your clone so they will think the clone is you, be sure to place jack in the boxes, and target assassins so they won't be a hurtful team. Shaco's job is to make a mess of the battlefield and trapping them so your team is successful in the clash.
This is the things that pros would most likely do.http://www.google.com/imgres?q=Shaco+skills&um=1&hl=en&client=safari&sa=N&rls=en&biw=1438&bih=711&tbm=isch&tbnid=lUc-m7ONUkRLFM:&imgrefurl=http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/shaco-the-jokes-on-you-192024&docid=IPVAC1JYUG9jyM&imgurl=http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l264/xwick/Photoshop/Shaco-2.jpg&w=800&h=640&ei=EIWiT4_ODsW0iQfIvdDvCA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=401&vpy=79&dur=4089&hovh=201&hovw=251&tx=140&ty=151&sig=103693953376419398423&page=4&tbnh=144&tbnw=192&start=62&ndsp=26&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:62,i:215
