BEFORE YOU WRITE SOMETHING IN COMMENTS !!! THIS !IS! SUICUIDAL SHEN BUILD THIS !IS! DIE LET YOUR TEAM MATES LIVE BUILD !!!
NEW SETUP WILL BE TESTED SOON
STILL UNDER PROCESS OF IMPROVING BUILD
STILL UNDER PROCESS OF LEARNING ENGLISH ... <smile>
!! Very important !!
I'm not going to make you invincible or let you rape everyone, Legue of Legends is a game of suprises, there is allways someone better and you must allways consider having "luck" and "bad luck". Some of my tips may not work for you or even dont work at all, I'm just writing like a report of my fights and it works for me quite brilliantly.
!! General Shen tips !!
Do not be an ***
First and most important rule of all. Defend weak, be a guide for newbies, do not mock leavers, don't answer to insults, don't laugh at enemies, and allways act as cool as you think Shen the flaming eye of twilight is. He simply looks cool dont he? And he left school to be a ninja... how cool is that?!
I personally always tell my team when i can "jump in", i allways write before its ready beacouse when its actually ready its wrong to waste time chatting. Simple "30 s" is enoguh if you play normally not premade tell the team waht the f**k are you on about <smile>.
A) In a game you are loosing or even matched one, for pit sake do not rush with "r" to save someone who is being attacked by 4 or more enemies, you both will die probablly. If by any chance you are winning the game or you yourself have stats like 10/1/15 use your ulti as you please. ( remember just to tell your mates that they need to run if you are saveing them from horde of enemies )If ONLY you die while helping friend, it's still Grread Succezz!
B) Allways after succesfull ulti do a shadow dash to take enemies of your friends.
C) Ultimate no longer gives you shield but still its sort of "get away" skill use it to escape ONLY if you must and have any chance of doing this.
Obviously you have to learn to fight your fight while looking at the map and observing your mates, if you cant do one or another you need to rethink your champion selection. ( I don't want to insult anyone, sooo you can allways try to learn that <smile> )
It really depends on what you need, at early game it can be constant harrasement to your enemies ( i love to hide in the bushes wait till good moment jump out -> "vorpal Blade" -> "Ki strike" -> bushes helpful at the beggining but quite dengerous ). It can be heal for you and team, at EG anything will do just use "q" and attack, later its pointless coz you are just going to kill normal minions, you need to watch for cannon boys, super minions or champions.
In my opinion underestimated skill, at the beginning of my shen adventures i wasn't using it very often. Now its diffrent i use it allmost all the time, it can really save your ***. Great anti harrasment skill. In fight, spam it as someone would pay you for it.
!! General build tips !!
YOU ARE BLOODY TANK!
Good tank dies first, remember! (Of coz in a momment there will be a guy in comments that will say "Uh, oh, good tank never dies you know nothing"... bulls**t...)
Take lizard if you have opportunity, it can be helpfull. Leave the golem dont need that. If there is someone in que for buff let them get it its not so necessary for you to have it.
Measure of success
Of coz if you have a bilion kills and no deaths its all jolly exciting but the measure of success with this build shen is nuber of assists, you are not there to kill you are there to help your mates. (that one changed slightly when i changed setup, but still dont HUNT. just "be" there for your mates.)
Summoner & Champion skill combo
(Best results if you have friend to help you)
I love it, chasing one target / hiding somewhere -> flash -> dash -> exhaust -> vorpal -> Ki -> Kill. Using flash is an element of suprise you appear instantly closer to the target, dash to taunt it or get even closer, exhaust to catch it, vorpal & ki to rape it. By this time your friend is close enough to finnish the job.
Yet more supprises !(only for aggressive players)!
Be a total freak, play agressive it will suprise your enemies, why? Coz shen even with this very deffensive build is very very good for killing, rly try it. Of coz to play agressive you need quite good escaping skill <smile>
Be fast... like a ninja!
Shoes, pots run. you need to be first in the bushes. wait till someone comes close (dont wait till the enemy will enter the bushes)vorpal & ki, run they will be scared to death and end up with half of the hp gone. IF by any chance your line mate is there using exhaust you can try to kill. It depends on what is approaching the bushes.
1 vs 1
Dont forget to use Vorpal it's really helpfull if it's running dash if it's winning ulti / dash & flash. REMEMBER thats using dash on enemy stops him from using skills!!
1 vs 2
you still can win use vorpal and exhaust inteligently and its easy. If you are not going to win obviously escape.
1 vs 5
!! Artifact walkthrough !!
EG = Be carefull.
First shoes and potions if you have proper runes you can make through EG with that. ( Id like to point out that atm im using ryze runes coz i dont have money for proper ones and i still can even tank at low lvls )
Second "Mercury Threads" still dont need anyything if you are carefull.
Third Start to make "Aegis of the legion" after you have build it you can properly tank now.
MG = Be a helpfull nanny to your team.
Fourth "Frozen Mallet" but start with Phage! it is better choice than the belt.
Fifth (Usually by this state the easy game is already over) Guardian Angel (default) you can get thornmail... anythink you need really.
LG = SLLAUGHHTERR!!!
Sixth "Phantom Dancer" Dodge + movement speed, and of course extra boost in fights.
Seventh Little finnishing touch in form of "Frozen Heart"
Bonus Depending on how hard the game is and how much harrassement you get you can supply yourself with hp potions anytime, let's say till the end of mid game. Later its not necessary.
Before you ask/say something stupid!
- No u don't need life steal.
- No this build isn't going to make you dps
- No... by raping i meant killing.
- I'm open to suggestions
- If you wish to mock me for "beeing a lol noob, no life sucker, idiot shen" than get a crayon fo write in on paper and show your momma.
- Yes i know im rubbish at english
!LAST AND VERY IMPORTANT THING!
It's not a strict sequence, its an suggestion. you can allways go one better than the random bloke from sum site.
