Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Must I explain how to use Shaco? Alright,here I go.
Backstab(Passive)-The name says it all.This passive has great synergy with your Deceive skill and after that first hit with backstab,they should be ****ting their pants and running :)
Deceive:Your bread-and-butter(This being the bread and Two-Shiv Poison being the butter).Not to mention it has great synergy with most of your skills :)Now even though this is your best skill,it also takes a little skill to use.Now some of you may ask,"How hard is it to stealth and rape them right after?"To make the most out of this skill,you also want to position yourself behind them.If you master this,you're 75% of the way there.Where's that other 25%?You gotta know how and when to use it!Keep in mind that this skill is not like Twitch's Ambush!You are only stealthed for 3.5 seconds.Do your job fast and get the hell outta there or you WILL BE GANKED.Other than that,I would max this out first
Jack in the Box-While most people use this for the fear and damage,I use it as a ward for this build,which I believe would be a better use for this skill.Other than that,it's pretty much useless in this AD Shaco build,so I max this skill last after adding to it at level 1.
Two-Shiv Poison-Ah yea,the butter to your bread.Helps you with quick get-aways and also has good synergy with Deceive.I mainly use this for the slow but that is the main purpose of this skill in an AD Shaco build because slowing them gives you more time to stealth kill them with Deceive,thus making this your butter.I max this our second.
Hallucinate-Very useful as a distraction and makes killing that much quicker.With AD,you don't have to worry about the damage reduction on him.Even the clone with be ****ting on the enemy HP in a few hits :D Be careful when you wanna go invis near your clone though.This is on the main ways they tell the difference between the real and fake Shaco.I add to this skill whenever I get the chance.*Trick with this skill* As stated before,this clone makes a great distraction.While the enemy is focused on killing your clone,sneak around and go for that back stab.
I think this is as far as I need to go in terms of explaining how to use this char.
*Last Notes and Tips*
Even though Shaco is a very good melee character,he is not tank.Do not go having one-on-one's with other bulky champions.
Some champions you could go after for easy kills would be Ashe,Twitch,Soraka and Twisted Fate.Some squishies that you might wanna avoid would be Sona,Ryze,Anivia,and Morgana.What do they all have in common,they can cast their stun and snare very fast.
When their are team fights,don't be a front-line melee fighter.Please remember that Shaco is an assassin.Use him to pick off any weakened runners from the team fight and do NOT tower dive for the kill.
Please rate/comment and I hope you enjoy this build. ;)
