Ok, I have not lost a game yet with this Shen build, tell me what you guys think!
Surge and Ignite

HoG-boots of speed-warmogs- ninja tabi - wardens mail- negatron cloak -ionic spark - randuins- force of nature - frozen mallet

I run as glyps, hp/lvl seals, mg pen marks and ap quints. I run 8-22-0 masteries

I grab the ap, ss spell boost and as points in the offensive tree and then go tank route in defense. I've never actually made it to frozen mallet because they are surrendering before you get there. If you are really pwning, get recurve bow after tabi. Surge is perfect for shen because you can boost your shield and your ult and your q with it plus you get as to get those ki strikes. Your ki strike is what this build is about. HP and AS are all I go for really. I haven't seen any Shens running this buiild so I thought I would post it. Please try it before you knock it because it is super good!

Edit: Also, only get one point in shadow dash because the damage is meh and the taunt duration is the same. You want to max q first and then his shield because you are even more tank and it gives us more ki strikes.

....Build shen like 90% of other tanks...profit...You're not breaking the mold here.

And Shen is boderline OP when soloing top now, so IDK if it's an accomplishment to win with him, or an accidental overcompensation you happen to be enjoying thanks to Riot.

Oh, and Ionic Spark for what reason are you getting that on Shen who gains NOTHING from attack speed? Sure the HP helps with some stuff, but you're waisting a slot IMO.

Ionic spark is actually good on Shen. Your passive comes up almost instantly with Feint on as well if you have a good enough AS. The health and AoE proc on it isn't bad either. He also has issues farming so, take it as you wish.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

I'm in awe jhoijhoi posted on my thread lol :P but ya its not like other tank builds imo. also ionic spark is perfect...if u didnt know his passive gets lower cd when shen hits other people now, not the other way around so I'll ignore that post haha. I'm now 20-1 with this build. Keep in mind this is pubstomp stats not ranked but I am about to go there and try it and I'll let everyone know how that goes

I can't see how it wouldn't work.. The summoner spells will allow him to deal a great amount of damage on a single target during a taunt, could be great for killing a AD-carry.. And shen does not need teleport on top lane thanks to his ulti, so I definitely think this is viable in ranked.

I prefer Wit's End to Ionic Spark if you really want the AS.

Wit's End or Abyssal Mask are better options to gain some Magic Resist and offensive power simultaneously.

Also, I find getting both Frozen Mallet and Warmog's Armor a waste, particularly when you don't pick up Atma's Impaler.

Warmog's is great on Shen regardless of whether you pick up Atma's because of the health scaling on his passive and Q.

A fully stacked Warmog's gives Shen 127 damage on his passive and 25.4 healing on his Q - for everyone on your team.

I was talking about getting Warmog's Armor and Frozen Mallet, not the item itself hence why I bolded "and" for extra emphasize and clarity.
