S11 Powerfufin's Diamond 2+ Shen Toplane Guide

By Powerfufin
Core items
Always buy the 3 core items first: Kindlegem, Boots of Lucidity, and Forbidden Idol. > Go Redemption after buying all 3 core items
Strenghts and weaknesses Back to Top
+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
Playstyle Back to Top
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? Back to Top
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? Back to Top
Try to recall first at:
1700 (kindlegem+boots of lucidity)
800 (kindlegem)
Tips & Mechanics Back to Top
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
