Hey guys!

Just wanted to get your opinion on the upcoming changes to Shen. I remember when I started playing LoL, Shen was like considered the BEST tank. Then he just kinda faded, and I hardly ever see him. He is kinda my favorite champ tho, and was just wondering if you thought the changes would make him worth playing/viable! Any thoughts are great! Thanks!

im still going to build him like an ap tank, but get more health in my build somewhere.

wonder what would happen if shen taunted someone then activated zhonyas?


anyway, its usually Mercury's Treads, Zhonya's Hourglass, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Abyssal Mask, and Sunfire Cape. 6th depends on team and enemy team.

I do think that the changes will bring out some more potential for different play styles.

I think that given the changes to his energy regens, and his passive CDR based on him hitting and not getting hit, he might become a Bulky DPS or Tanky DPS.

The vorpal blade change will be interesting. And since its scaling on his HP, AP/HP tanking might be a big thing now.

There will be new things coming out of these changes, and I cant wait to get my hands on them

Still probably building Shen post patch as I am building him now.
Mercs, Rylais, Sunfire, FoN, Atmas, Abyssal.

No specific order.

I already used to build shen merc's, warmogs, sunfire, atma's, wit's end. (random mr item) which resulted in around 4,2k health, 160 attk dmg, high attackspeed cuz of wits end, 180 armor and mr. This build is going to syngerise incredibly good with the new shen kit. Huge ki strike dmg, high ad and attack speed(ki strike gives energy back) and huge shield from w.

Actually, sth like Wit's End can come in quite handy on him after rework.

Well, he was good, then they nerfed him to the gutter so people stop using him... now ages later they finally realize their previous changes were utterly stupid. He will finally be good again... enjoy it while it lasts because I am sure they will kick the legs right back out from under him mere weeks later.(Look at Vladimir) Riot is like children with A D D that drink a gallon of soda per day when it comes to balance changes.

Fyi Ki Strike hits for magic not physical. Simply put, Shen does not value AD at all. His ideal way for more dps is to stack HP for harder Ki Strikes or more AP so that Blade tosses hit harder. But next patch Attack Speed will also be a factor because the edited version will make the CD reduced per auto attack.(No longer just hits vs you, but also hits vs enemies) Items like the Malady will suddenly become valuable on the guy.(Attack Speed+Ability Power)

Dont cry, it was obvious Vlad would be a monster with the recent buff (already late game terror, now mid game too, wtf ?) and would be nerf somehow later.
Any people with some brain can actually see than Shen will become a monster so YES, obviously, he will be nerfed some weeks later. I at least hope Riot will fastly see how they were high when the decided to buff him that way.

PS : "shen was good ?" There are/were other words to describe how shen was powerful, "good" is not enough.
