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.
This is my Shaco build that I love playing. I have 110k shaco points and have played him since early season 3. This build may or may not be better than the standard hydra + shiv build. But I can really feel the dmg on this one and really like the tankyness in it
I also want to show that you can really build anything on this guy and make it work.
I start bot side for the juicy leash.
Stacks your first 2 boxes at the small camp and your last 2 boxes out of range from the buff. If your bot is nice enough they will leash it if not, no problem. You play shaco after all ;)
Save smite for the red buff if you play on blue side and use smite on the toad if you start purple side you always have smite for the 2nd big buff.
After killing the small camp got to the big buff and bait him into your 2 pre stacked boxes. When he gets feared you place another box behind him and use your e when he has his back towards you. If you play this right you should still have your health pots and be (almost) full health.
Then run to your other big buff and kill it, now you should be level 3.
There are other routes, but this is a really safe and fast one to do.
You can also start red with all your boxes and gank mid lane for instant pressure. Then you take Q second and most of the time get a summoner or kill.
This really depends on the matchups though.
After lvl 3.
-Gank when you hit level 3 and dont stop untill your carries are fed.
-Farm jungle camps in between with the tiamat and be with every skirmish with your mobi boots ( roam with your mid or countergank when a lane over extends).
-Take dragons solo when you are 6 ( be sure to pink it first ), your boxes and clone can tank it all the way.
-In teamfights its your job to cause chaos. You can do this by oneshotting a squishy ( not by engaging but by walking past the teamfight in stealth), placing boxes so the enemy cant run and if you cant do that help, your carry out! Peel him and deal dmg to the ones trying to kill him/her.
-If all else fails, splitpush and place boxes from where they can come.
You gank from strange places that arent warded.
Just walk past the enemy and place a box on flash distance behind him. If he flashes he is instantly feared and you can catch up.
Dont use E so fast! Your basic attacks only slow if your E is NOT on cooldown. So save it untill you cant catch up anymore and to do the last dmg.
Top - easiest lane to gank, really long and you can abuse your slow.
Mid - Shortest lane in the game, prob have to gank twice to kill the enemy.
Bot - I only gank bot when i have my mobi boots, since bot is ALWAYS warded. Laneganks ftw
Invading - You can invade if you are confident enough, i usually invade after my laners are ahead so i can get backup fast.
