Shen, Eye of Twilight - How to DESTROY Top/Bot!

By Asoreth
Hello, I am Asoreth and this is my first guide on how to play Shen, The Eye of Twilight. I will be updating this guide whenever I have time.
Why Shen?
Why would you want to play Shen?
Because of his flexibilty, utility and great saving potential with . Shen is really good to learn map awareness because of his ultimate, he can also become a force to be reckoned with. Most people don't expect big damage from Shen, and because of that you can probably win your lane because the enemy toplaner underestimated you, it may not happen always, it could happen.
His playstyle is more of a Bruiser than a Tank, which is fantastic because he doesn't usually feel boring to play.

You should look at the map whenever you have it, once per at least 5 seconds.
It's very important to keep in mind that playing Shen is a bit different than most toplaners in that you have to look at your teammates and look for plays with your ult.

You should use your Teleport pretty much only for going back to lane after a good ultimate, there are of course exeptions for example: When your team needs help at Baron/Dragon and your ult is on cooldown.
The All-in Combo

, Empowered , Auto, , Auto, Auto.
You are going all in, the enemy is low and most likely not expecting any damage from you.


Proc , , Auto.
This is great for a short trade with an enemy you don't want to fight with but still deal damage. Proc your Grasp, then auto-attack your enemy with Q.

Trade Burst

Empowered , Auto, Auto, Auto.
Whenever your enemy forgets about your blade or just gets into the way of it, you can easily take advantage of that, and deal big damage.


This is good if you need to close out the distance quickly and unexpectedly taunt the enemy, I encourage you to practice this combo on practice tool, because it might be difficult to hit at first.
