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.
With this build i want to show you the way I play Shaco.
If you think it wont work, well I rule the games with it!
For the runes I take Armorpen. to get through some of their Armor even without items for that.
Critdmg. runes are especially for Deceive and the attackspeed is for some 1on1 or teamfights where you can't just assassinate.
Pros / Cons
-Strong damage output in 2 ways assassinating and going for an open fight
-easy jungling with Jack-in-the-box
-great 1on1 witch Halluzinate
-if core-build is finished insane damage
-You are an evil clown ;)
-You'll need a bit practising to get feeded early game
-oracle is really disturbing
If you want to jungle with shaco i guess the Madreds Razor explains itselfs!
Dont forget your boots: Berserkers greaves is the way to go because you need that early attackspeed if you have to face an enemy that you cant take down with your spells/that has too much lifepoints
Next will be your sword of the occult -> I know that snowballs should not be core but this is just perfect if you know how not do die! Its cheap and will provide enough extra damage to not buy an expensive B.F. Sowrd to soon.
Now we come to triforce: A great item if its used for the right Champion!
-The insane passive of sheen, stacking with Deceive!
If you got this and about 8 stacks on your occult you will be a feared champion!
Now we need more attackspeed, so why not get madreds Bloodrazor with additional damage, attackspeed and another very good passive!
This will empower your Clone and your abillity to face heros on lanes and not only gank around low hp Champs.
So far we are finished with the core making you an assassin that even rules the open fight!
The next items will just make you unstoppable
The Vampiric scepter is for the lifesteal you will really need now!
So we come to infinity edge...
This item will make you much stronger because you dmg from deceive will reach a critical damage point where you can just chop some 2000-2500hp heroes is half.
Plus the new critchance will help not too loose an 1on1.
Now the bloodthirster for even more lifesteal and a replacement for your sword of the occult.
Now as we come to phantom dancer you sell your sword of the occult and replace it and making you faster and faster and stronger
If the game isn't over yet (is that even possible?!) you can replace your boots with another phantom dance making you have a critchance of about 100%.
If you not feel like jungling everything is the same exept that you will buy you madreds razor wehn you want to get the bloodrazor
