About Me
Hello, im Magic Trick, an EUW/EUNE clown abuser with almost 7 years of experience who loves to tilt the enemies in almost every lane. It's my first guide so any feedback and criticism will be treated with respect :) Sorry for any typo's that may accur but english is not my native language. I stream my Shaco gameplay ocasionally so check it out if you want! https://www.twitch.tv/shaco_magictrick
How to lane with ap shaco?
Keep in mind that you are next to useless lvl 1 so don't do stupid things as facechecking bushes or going into enemy jungle.
In early state of laning place your boxes in the middle of the wave to push it and gain cs. The enemy will rather stay away from the box than try to destroy it so you gain a free push.

Avoid fighting without your boxes set up and dodge unwanted trades with your Q.
Once you get your E keep throwing it into your enemies face so you stack your manaflow band and for the poke.

Always have a backup boxes away from the minions range so if the enemy engages into you, you can fight back (if he walks into a box and you backstab him)
Later on as the game progresses do not be afraid to leave your lane. You can always roam towards mid for some kills or assists but remeber to do it only if your enemy is in base or pushed under his turret.

Once you get your lvl 6 you powerspike hard. Thats where the fun begins. Dont use your ult to engage! Use it to react to enemy engages. Dodge their abilities, bait with the clone while you hide in a bush, do i Q+R combo for an almost 100% chance they hit the clone, its up to you! Be creative and use your brain to outplay your enemies. Don't be afraid to 1v2 becouse you can win it especially if they dive you under your turret.

In mid game you basicly spam the **** out of your enemy with your E until they die and they cannot do anything but engage into you (and your box traps >:D) so you get easy kills.

Late game is just pure clowning around and securing the objectives with setting up boxes in high traffic areas around baron and dragon pit.
Teamfight around your boxes! Just set up a gulag of traps somewhere and ping your team to fight there. Flank your enemies and trick them into destroying your clone so they get nuked.
Usefull tricks
-If the enemy turrets agro the canon minion put a box between a wall and the turret. Box will deal its full damage and will not be distracted by minions so you get a full push potential.

-Use your clone to instantly push the whole wave! Send in the clone and let it die so you get a fast push and can go back to base. If you return to base your ult should be up soon so you do not waste anything!

-Use the teleporting clone technique! Send the clone somewhere behind the frontlines and put him just before he reaches the teleport range (a big circle will appear). Once it is near exploding use your Q to jump outside of the teleport range and almost instantly burst the enemy with the clone explosion. It will happen so fast they will have no time to react to it so they get nuked. And put a boxes under their feet instantly for a huge cc chain!

- The most efective combo is Q+R. I call it ''dropping the bomb''. Use it when you are very low and simply press Q then R. The clone will appear but you won't so you stay invisible. The enemy will surely attack the clone and since its low hp it will explode instantly giving you an opportunity for an outplay. Place a box under your opponent before the Q+R combo for a good cc chain and big dmg. Remember, the oracle lens allows them to see you in your stealth so it can disable the combo if they will notice you.
Final touch
So overall everyone can play ap top shaco. In my opinion it's a tactic called ''Easy to play, hard to master''. So if you are in low elo where enemies have a peanut instead of a brain and you want to have some fun, this guide is for you! I know a lot more tricks and posess a bigger knowledge about Top/Mid/Support Shaco but this guide is enough for a newbie who wants to test it. If you want to ask some questions go ahead and check my streams on https://www.twitch.tv/shaco_magictrick or just simply message me! Have fun and remeber, the jokes on you!
