Not Updated For Current Season
Don't you think this guy is like the joker? now all they have to do is make the batman,anyways.Hello my fellow Summoners. As you know this is a guide to an AP joker i mean Shaco.This guide will answer most of your questions and help you get winning streaks.
Extremely hard hits.
Tricky to beat.
Nice escape artist.
(in this build) Bad pusher
Well i didn't really think about this section. Runes are not that important i find (Bite me) i think shaco is fine with
I have the same opinion on this section than on the last "rune section".Shaco is just fine with out Masteries (or so i think D:) but i will go on anyways You need crit quite a bit so i recommend anything with crit. then go with anything with mana and damage. so really you just need points in offense and Utility.
So this is the part i put some thought into.*rubs hands* ok let us start off with the tome. this item gives good ap early game and plus it builds into the Mejai which is essential during end game because of the epic ap. The mejai as i said is important but can be replaced if your not making to many kills but in this build i'm confident you will get them.Mejai is needed as soon as possible because what happens to me allot is i have 5 kills and right there is 10 stacks i believe.Next is boots of speed. this is usually for still early game and needed to catch up even though you have decieve's teleport. Ionian boots of lucidity is need for the cool down which shaco needs.(i will cover that later). Sheen Is awesome with decieve. It makes the damage from your decieve Tremendous late game.Lich bane is just a better version of sheen and plus it gives good movement speed. Rabadons makes your life so much easier. It gives a ton of ap. Rylais gives the health you always needed and a bit of ap and if your lucky the special affect will activate. Now finish the sundae off with a rabadon hat on top.
Jitb first ( will be explained in game play ) Decieve till 5 then 2 shiv but ult must be increased at all times
This is gonna be a short section. Ghost has saved me a billion times.so i recommend you use it.Ignite is used to finish off or debuff a champion.
1- whenever being chased run towards a wall and decieve over it.
2- Always activate ult to chase down an enemy
3- Always activate ult to bring down tower
4- Use jack in the box to activate the lich bane special effect
5- Whenever running from somebody run into a bush and decieve out of it

Ok as soon as you enter summoners rift get the tome as quickly as possible. Then run bottom lane as soon as possible. get to the second bush the one closest to the turret. If they have stealth or you are delayed for some reason either make a brave choice by going int other 2nd bush or stay in the first bush OR stay by the tower but i recommend you get to the 2nd bush. As sooon as you get there lay down Jack in the boxes as fast as you can. and when an enemy comes don't go out there just wait for it. As soon as the Jitb are shooting You attack too. You or your laning partner should have a kill and drew first blood. After that they should be scared of you and you should have more lane control.While your playing with your team encourage them.Dont go noob noob noob unless your really mad.lol. Ok now when you farm i recommend you go behind the minions, Keeping your territory plus its convenient for shaco since he does more damage when behind. Now there is a different situation on how things could have turned out which in most cases it should have turned out like that. The alternate result could have been YOU have been first blood and them pushing YOU. this is possible if you laning partner is a melee and both enemies are good pushers which in this case don't worry. farm with your jitb and save your deceive for escaping and fighting when you have the chance. The other thing you have to do is wait. wait for the opportunity to kill. This leads us to the mejai
and then the boots. from this period you must be doing what i said above.This leads us to mid game
You should have 3 kills above whatever situation you ended up in. mid game really starts when you have the enemy tower or when everybody is mid which the game 60% of the time ends at mid game for a shaco. Ok once your mid always wait for somebody to intiate not you. If there is nobody to initiate then use your ult to. Get turrets when you can and kill when you can this is when it ends either surrender or nexus beaten. There's not much to middle game.
Here is the exact same thing from middle game its just twice as easy because of all that glorious ap :) thats all my knowledge of shaco put into this page
