Welcome to our lodge, young clown!

We know why you're there... you've enough of their laught, despised smiles and contempt. You want to make your kills stylish and make them shine! You want to wear natty hat with gorgeous pair of daggers behind your belt. Why to wear so many swords, mauls, or even a way too heavy armors? By the end of this guide (Hopefully), you will earn rank of highest priority... rank of pure Assassin.

Skill Sequence

Ofcours you can try the way of armored clown, go through the jungle, or push with your little creeps toward the tower like a boss in the middle of the lane, but... did you ever tryed to play purely smart, with good timing and deadly precious?

Smart guys're sexy today, so I'd like to introduce you into my secrets. With which I will begin? With your loved boxes ofcrs!

Shaco creates a Jack in the Box at the target location. It will Stealth after 2 seconds, and pop out when an enemy comes near, fearing nearby enemies for 0.5 / 0.75 / 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 seconds and attacking them.

It deals 35 / 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 (+25% of ability power) damage, and lasts 90 seconds while stealthed or 5 seconds while firing. Casting Jack In The Box does not break stealth.

They can do many things... save your ***, when you're bein' chased by slobbery bunch of barbarians, vikings, or samurais. To get the hell from your mother-in-law, or ... to get the hell from your barbaric friends. Just stand there, get a cup of coffe, cigaret... place them on frequently visited places and catch the butterfly. Noway, I was kiddin' you smily dumb! Do ****in' something! Place the box, farm minions, or harras with your dagger. Place it on the place of last one, repeat your harrasing ( Without sexual undertext please...). Be smart... dont let creeps to walk into your trap... get low on hp, make them chase you and then... Boom! Decieve, look at this slaughter and finish lucky ***s, which just had to run away with bilion darts in their belly. With your decieve combo and skill with throwing dagger it wouldnt be a problem. Or call your mighty summoner to send fires on your enemy!

Shaco instantly stealths for 4 seconds, and teleports to target nearby location. If he attacks while stealthed, the attack is guaranteed to crit for 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 / 120% bonus damage.

Another one is your art of dashing. Man... you just had to know when its necessary and when not, cuz' ... you cant do it so frequently. Good timing and saving it when you can come somewhere by your own feets (You lazy moron!), its main. And then ... silent attack from it... try to make it behind your enemy! And if you're asking yourself "But its so coward" get the **** off my lodge. Strike to enemies back is unforgoton strike. *Rup!* Ouch ... my backs.

Passive: While Two-Shiv Poison is ready to cast: Shaco's attacks poison his target, reducing their movement speed and chance to hit by 20/22.5/25/27.5/30% for 2 seconds.
Active: Deals half weapon damage + 40/80/120/160/200 (+100% of ability power) Damage to target enemy, and poisons them for 3 seconds.

How well you can throw your dagger? Show me! *Schunk!* Hmpf, hmpf... I saw one eyed whale in the center of Fyrone flats with one fin, throwing it better! And faster... thats the beauty of it. Throw it whenever you can... harras this barbaric ***s so much, that they'd run away to theirs moomy respawn stone as much as possible. Think you hopeless dumb! They went out, you push, you set your traps... they came back, they're dead.

Shaco creates an illusion of himself nearby, which deals 75% of Shaco's damage and receives 150% increased damage. (Deals half damage to turrets.) On death, the illusion deals 300 / 450 / 600 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to nearby enemies.
Lasts up to 30 seconds.

I like my clone... call him Frankie, good folk. He like Noxart and Bethoran, branchs, and... ARE YOU FKIN OUT OF YOUR MIND? Your clone is your power... Play smart... make him die as faster as you can, cuz ... its just a big boom ( And when I say big I mean BIG ), around. They just wouldnt know from where came this dagger into their chest. But be sure, that they wouldnt look into your illusion... decieve for a moment around... bloodthirsty, barbaric moron with enormous sword (Yeah, I think he need to compensate something by this...), would slah by it around him like a berserker... so he wouldnt be so much carefull about what he is just tearing apart.

Yeah, yeah... penetrate theirs magic shields and all this *****... thats the way to go, buddy!

You want to harras them a lot... but you need some magic-techtle-blechtle somthing to do it A LOT. So thats explains it...

Faster daggers. Faster kills. Faster clone, faster cataclysm of daggers. Faster boxes, faster setting the traps. Faster decieving... well I though about droping Katarinas bra down... mmm.

You want to beat them down till start... this will help ya.

Ye, ye ... by this time you must start thinking, that I'm some kind of fat, nerdy looser and ... well you can think whatever you want! :D But guys... AP Shaco is awesome build, if its played smart and by heart :P . I've posted just main thoughts and I'll surely add more. And If I would change my rank from "Master of lazinest" to "Padawan of lazynest", I'll use my skills from job, as a graphic designer, and do it again by a bit... "More symphatic art way" ^^. GL young assasins!
