Shaco story.

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.

Summoner Spells



Beginners , will need Ghost to escape , heal for defence .



they will need Ghost to capture the enemy (Few to escape) , and ignite to finish the enemy.



Professorial , will dont need any spell to capture the enemy or to escape. he will know when attacking. And when to return. so he will get Heal + Ignite , To help him when he attacks the enemy.

why heal in Beginner , and heal in professorial ?? < Beginner will use heal to escape , but professorial will use heal to kill (if he attack near enemy turrent)

Beginning of the items

i think best Beginning items is boot and potion, movement to escape or capture the enemies, and potions to keep in lane.

if you are beginner , take these items , will give you good armor and 5 health potions to keep in lane.

Remainder Items

very nice boot , Increase by 5 after a short time , Will make you go to the lane quickly to help your team , if you are Professional , Will be able to run away very well with this boot. , if you dont like it , Take

Berserker's Greaves

Excellent Item In the average time. You'll get everything you need Because of this item, every little thing.

The main item of the attack. ,The most powerful force attack on all of the Items, And you will get an increase in the Critical Strike.

OK , We have bought a lot of items of the attack , It's time to get the defense. This is the only item that contains "Armor" and "Magic Resist" in one item. You will also get something good. every 5 minute you will revive with 750HP.
