Shens a Jungler?
Why choose jungling over laning? Jungling allows you to have 2 solo lanes, 3 if you count jungle. So if you need a jungler, why not use an AP with a taunt and a group heal. Plus,. Shen's ulti is awesome for ganking, if a lane is extended, the enemy team can say bye bye to their laning phase.
His ulti which makes him an awesome tank, also can be used to shield and make other people less "squishy". AP improves your shielding power letting a tank, tank more damage or a caster, burst with another skill.
As for Glyphs, I go with straight AP. I much rather prefer straight AP over AP per level. AP per level can get u in a lot of trouble in the jungle. Straight AP allows you to clear your jungle faster and gank more efficiently.
Marks, like for most AP users, allow you to deal more damage early game and late game. If you have no magic pen at all you will easily get your damage blocked by their magic resistance.
AP quint, like for glyphs, give you more and more damage at level 1-6 which is right when you need it.
Your Feint can stay at level 2 til everything else you have is maxed. Feint does not get it's energy usage deceased, but the others do.
Like every other champion (except for a few without ultis), you want to level your Stand United as much as you can.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter gives your passive more health to work on which makes you, SUPA STRONG! With this strength Mordekaiser es not numer uno!
Moonflair Spellblade and Rod of Ages can be changed around in the build with eachother. Spellblade gives you tenacity and AP, which makes you SUPA TANK. RoA gives you more health and AP.
Your team needs a gank? OH! Theres a wall blocking your path, what will you do? Waste your Shadow Dash? NO! Flash will help you get the kill for your team! Or, do you have a problem with an Ashe or Tryndamere? Flash will be your SUPA SAVIOR! As I like to call it FLASH AND DASH!
- Lizard Elder
- Repeat little creatures
- Ancient Golem
Darn those mighty big golems... Why do they have to be the first thing I kill? OH! I know why! They are VULNERABLEEE! Like a teenage girl, yes? But why not ask your team for a quick leash. It makes you take less damage which makes you, SUPA HAPPY!
Why do wraiths have livesteal like me? THEY AINT NO WITCH. The big one is the target for now. But why don't I just get rid of the small fries first? They have less lifesteal? OKAY!
Am I killing Warwick's parents? Why do wolves like to crit so much... Not like im trying to hurt them or anything. But the alpha pack leader is first as always!
Giant Lizards are dinosaurs right? But why does this one look like a Renekton on a bad day. And what are the smaller ones, its babies?
Ancient Golems aren't that smart are they? If they just sit there not using any skills why are they in the game? They give me energy regen? HOW COOL IS THAT! You can stay Ancient Golems! We love you!
Big Bad Dragon... If your so good dragon why are the second to Baron in the neutral monsters?
BE A MAN! Just cuz you cant hurt me as bad as other junglers doesnt mean you can't do better.
Shadow Dash Helps get your enemies dead quicker and easier in team fights.
Need to tank a turret? Don't let your teammate tank it alone! Shield them for more damage taking goodness!
