Introduction

Hi! This is TOYOism a shaco main and I play in the PH server and this is my guide on how to play shaco, here I'll discuss on how to play shaco effectively and the pros and cons of shaco, and since we're talking about shaco I'll explain as well on how to do some MIND TRICKS to make the enemy team rage. Shaco is a champion that is very tricky and it takes a lot of practice to play him effectively.

Runes

With runes, you'll actually see that I got a weird set up.

SENPAI WHY 1 EXPERIENCE QUINT?

With this Quint rune you can actually be ahead of everybody with just 3 camps.
(Wolves > Blue > enemy Red)
You'll notice in the skill tree that you get Deceivelevel 2, with this you can rush to enemy red buff and steal it. Allowing you to Gank top or bottom with them being level 1 or 2 only and winning a kill for the team, or if not give vision (WARD THE ENEMY CAMPSIDE) so your team can have a better vision of the enemy jungler and you continue farming.

SENPAI WHY AD REDS AND NOT LETHALITY?

Lethality VS AD:

LETH: it makes you clear slower but gives you better burst.
AD: it gives faster clear and balanced burst early.

I'd personally prefer AD marks comapre to Leth since it gives you more steal efficiency.

With Seals Armor, just standard armor runes is enough, getting scaling health is good as well making you more tanky late game.

SENPAI WHY AP GLYPHS INSTEAD OF MR?

To be honest this is somehow a personal choice you can also run MR glyphs but for me I always do dodge skills manually with Deceive, Plus having a boost of AP can give you more duration with Jack In The Box making it as a semi "ward" or sometimes you place it on some choke points.

Masteries

Standard 12-18-0

With masteries I don't have anything to explain here much, just a standard dps mastery page that's all.

Items

Now here's the thing why you're here. First of all, WHY MAKE SHACO TANKY?

#1 Shaco's kit is a complete package (ENGAGE/DISENGAGE > CC > POKE > DIVERSION/DODGE), meaning the longer you're inside the fight the more effective you are.

Starting with Titanic Hydra it gives you an auto attack reset and the tankier you get the more damage you gain. Next is Duskblade of Draktharr after the rework of this item plus the buff of lethality this item gives shaco the potential to burst in burst out anyone with Deceive. And lastly is just a reminder, with all my experience with playing shaco damage is not always the answer to everything, always remember when you mess up shaco's engaging tool you are very vulnerable to CC thus making you useless at all. Playing shaco situational is very effective just counter everything or the enemy team's ace player and you'll win the match up.

PS: BUY SOME EFFIN' CONTROL WARD EVERYTIME YOU BACK!!

Skill Sequence

SENPAI HOW TO DO THE LEVEL3 RUSH CAMP?

Start puting 3 boxes in the wolf camp at 00:39. Put the box alongside the camp walls of wolves so it will just hit the 2 small wolves and put 1 box in blue (ask leash for faster clear and don't smite) then get Deceive level 2 and Q over dragon wall/baron wall to enemy team red buff and steal (smite).

SENPAI WHY GET 3 POINTS Q then MAX E FIRST?
Getting 3 points for Q will give you 3s to be invisible giving you more time to adjust on you ganks and maxing E first is obvious because this is your executing ability, and making your auto attacks have this mini slow effect on jungle camps and enemy champions giving you more damage all through out the game.

SENPAI WHY MAX R LAST?
This is a personal choice, maxing your ult early is somehow wasting points for other abilities since it doesn't give any difference at all, so it's best to max other abilities first rather than your ult.

Spells

SENPAI WHY NO FLASH?

Son, Taking flash with shaco is a MORTAL SIN! LOL

If you're new to shaco smite + flash is the best since you might do some mistakes at first leaving you vulnerable after engaging so getting flash for beginners is what I would recommend.

SENPAI CAN I TAKE SMITE + EXHAUST?

Yes, but I do prefer ignite more since it gives you the overkilling burst potential.
But IF the enemy team is assassin comp or rather has a hyper carry with them like etc.


Guide Top

Summary

In summary, you would like to practice when to engage and when not to. Again shaco is very vulnerable to CC and so hard to play at first so it will take time to feel the power and potential of shaco, to give some heads up some do climb up to challenger with using shaco, specially if your play style is like an assassin but more of an annoyance.

Always remember this 3 rules of jungling and mix it up with shaco's abilities and you can carry the game even when falling behind:

#1 OBJECTIVES IS A PRIORITY (DRAGON, BARON, PUSHING, VISION)
#2 DON'T OVER CAMP SINCE YOU WILL BE MORE PREDICTABLE THE 2ND TIME AROUND YOU DO THE SAME TRICK.
#3 IF YOU WANT TO BE HELPFUL TO YOUR TEAM DO SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP THEM INSTEAD OF PUSHING ON WHAT YOU WANT (Fail ganks, Stolen camps, counter jungled/ganked)

and lastly a piece of advice, just enjoy the game, be tiltless and practice.

Pros / Cons

PROS:
1.) Shaco can OWN the map if played well and correctly
2.) You can be anything for the team (Engage, Bait, Diversion)
3.) YOU'RE ANNOYING AS HELL!

CONS:
1.) If heavy CC'd you're dead meat clown.
2.) Shaco can mess up pretty bad if badly executed.
3.) YOU'RE STILL ANNOYING AS HELL! (since shaco is a very hard champ to play)

Last tips/advices

SENPAI IS SHACO AP DEAD?

Sadly yes, but PW-sama still do Shaco ap but with precision runes mostly ap shaco is about Jack In The Box play style and it's not really good in jungle.

Either way AP TANK or AD shaco is good IF PLAYED WELL. Again for the last time PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE, and be observable study your enemy and trick them into your traps and kick 'em outta your JUNGLE. THIS IS YOUR JUNGLE AND YOU OWN IT.

Split Pushing with Shaco:

Split pushing is easy when you got your hydra, always do objectives no matter what happens
1 trick is when you hit the level 6 mark and you got your tiamat ready. You can solo the Rift herald or Dragon with just red buff and using your clone to tank the damage, let your team and the enemy kill each other while you are secretly doing some nasty stuffs.
INVADE | KILL SQUISHIES | PUSH | VISION and you'll own the map to the point they don't want to go out and cs anymore.
and remember the saying: I'm split pushing top, and my name is rudy. They used all their ults, I DID MY DUTY.

PS: BUY CONTROL WAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDS !!!!!
