[13.16] Powerfufin's Master+ Tier Shen Guide

By Powerfufin
Core items
Always buy the 3 core items first: Boots of Lucidity > Kindlegem > Aegis Go upgrade to: Locket of the Iron Solari > Redemption
Strenghts and weaknesses
+Multiple Q procs during trades
+Ultimate hunter + 40% cdr early = frequent early ults
+Constant global pressure
+Teleport back to lane after R
-Low hp/stats
-Requires you to passive lane
-Team dependent
Play passive if enemy laner is stronger, trades are NOT needed

Only trade in few matchups, Ornn is an example or Irelia

Make sure you have a control ward around all the time, you are weak and easy to gank

Give up cs if neccesarry
Redemption first item, why?
Use redemption IF NEEDED after you ult - Works well with your W (Heal and block aa)

Sometimes redemption can be used as a 1v1 tool, surprising your enemy, damaging them true damage and healing you

10% shield power proc on passive and R

You will most likely R into a fight with atleast 4 players early, redemption will heal your allies and damage your enemies
When to recall?
Try to recall first at:
1700 (kindlegem+boots of lucidity)
800 (kindlegem)
Tips & Mechanics
Have your Q above target, Q through target and wait 3-4 seconds, and engage with E, proc all 3 Q auto's and Q again, making you have 6 subsequent empowered auto attacks

Buy QSS against Nocturne R, now you can help your desperate team during Noc R
