Introduction- Shaco- The Assassin Jester

Why so serious... well its because I keep dieing by Shaco.... o wait thats you HAHHAHAHA.

This is the build i have created for shaco, i use it everytime and i plan on finding his tank inside and his caster dps.
Shaco is one of my champions that my team wants me to use everytime because of this build.
I have Royal Shaco favorite skin and im planning on getting them all.

Reason for this build(gotta have a reason or its pointless)... The reason i made this build is because shaco is a difficult charecter to use unlees u have experience with him, I made it to give the first time shacos and those looking for his hidden talent the HIDDEN TALENT LOL so please go by instructions to the dot and you will leave wiht more kill then intire enemy team.

Most would say that death isn't funny. It isn't, unless you're Shaco - then it's hysterical. He is Valoran's first fully functioning homicidal comic; he jests until someone dies, and then he laughs. The figure that has come to be known as the Demon Jester is an enigma. No one fully agrees from whence he came, and Shaco never offers any details on his own. A popular belief is that Shaco is not of Runeterra - that he is a thing summoned from a dark and twisted world. Still others believe that he is the demonic manifestation of humanity's dark urges and therefore cannot be reasoned with. The most plausible belief is that Shaco is an assassin for hire, left to his own lunatic devices until his services are needed. Shaco certainly has proven himself to be a cunning individual, evading authorities at every turn who might seek him for questioning for some horrendous, law-breaking atrocity. While such scuttlebutt might reassure the native inhabitants of Valoran, it seems unimaginable that such a malfeasant figure is allowed to remain at large.

Whatever the truth of his history might be, Shaco has joined the League of Legends for reasons only he knows. He is a terrifying figure, typically shunned by both his fellow champions and the media at large. Only the summoners in the Institute of War know why such a creature was allowed into the League, but most Runeterrans suspect it to be a means that allows the power that be to keep an eye on the ever-elusive Shaco. Unsurprisingly, this champion is popular in places where madness can openly reign, such as among the power-hungry summoners of Zaun and Noxus.

Whatever you do, don't tell him you missed the punch line.

What To Do-Summary (Beggining, Middle, End)

This intro will include the basic of what to do in beggining and middle and end of game.


In beggining of game spend first skill point on then get first iteam then head straight for the Ancient Golem laying his on the Blue Buffs spawn will give you the max output of dmg to him in beggining, Kill his little helpers... you should level unless a noob teamate came to help which is not needed, add that skill point to . After all that fun stuff I think time to KILL look around on the minimap and find a charecter with around 4-6 bars of health and very squishy


These are squishy charecters be sure to look for them and be warned most of them have escape move to get out since the SQUISHY. After finding the squishy champion of your choice go and gank them start by useing and get right behind them throw a has far towrds there turret but out of range of turret and then use followed by now attack them while they try to run away and you will successfully have got a KILL CONGRATZ

Continue to gank and get blue buff... If the lane you should be pushing in is getting tuff go help by now you should have enough kills to buy first 4 iteams giving you..

now that you have this go for the next two iteams by going forward more with the ganks on squishy charecters.

Mid Game if you have TWISTED FATE Have him use his final to find any enemy champions alone in the jungle... Run over and use get behind use in there escape route if they are running good to use This is how i kill with shaco without having to die. In event that you try and kill someone mid game and another shows and you make the educated guess that you will die... use run behind use attack the low health one while placing down on them or in escape, feel free to use [icon=Two-Shiv Poison size=64 to do extra dmg. sell both when going for the s

End of Game you should have these iteams....

Pros / Cons


    Shaco can kill faster then most due to the high attack speed and crit.
    Shaco is an assassin so he can basicly teleport behind an enemy and kill before they can attack.
    Shaco can also teleport when in danger away and doubl ehimself makeing decoy wiht dmg after decoy dies.

    Shaco has low hp
    Shaco has no armor
    Shaco runs on mana so if you dont have blue buff then you run out of mana fast
