1.Setting : If you are laning against someone who doesn't have much damage output or not too much hp you can play agressive
2.Setting : If you find yourself playing against tough champions such as Mordekaiser or Dr.Mundo or perhaps Alistar you should focus on grinding minions more
3.Setting : If your enemy is a high damage champion togeather with a support champion you should focus more on the support champion to cut off the support to the whole team later on
4.Setting : If you are laning against another Shen you should aim for him to use his taunt first or you could try and be his main target for the taunts
Ofcourse if your team has enough offansive power than defensive you should go for a full tank Shen , which meens that if your team has a support champion you should go for the build on the top of the page.
Since Shen's abilities are powered by ability power i took flat AP runes which give me a good start with the Vorpal Blades aswell as Faint and Stand United.
The movement speed bonus from the Quintessences is a good speed boost for high mobility while laning , it lets you avoid a lot of skill shots that may bother your farming.Aswell as letting you chase a lot better and gives you an advangate on the range of the taunts.
Moving on to offensive tree , i took ability power per level to enhance the skills that i use doring the game , i took the exhaust since it gives me an offensive ability aswell as defensive or fleeing one aswell as lasting 0.5 seconds more which is a lot of time in a fight , the attack speed boost is for the easier last hittin aswell as putting presure on the opponent champions , and the ignite boost gives me more ability power to enchance the spells i use.
As for the ultimate which has a long cooldown you should use it on a teammate which is fighting against a single opponent or 2 opponents maximum aswell as using it on a champion which is about to get heavly nuked to prevent the damage income.
