Threats & Synergies
EASY very easy especially when you have thorn just make sure u literaly one shot him.
pretty good vs adc you can also one shot just make sure you get in rage
HE rly hurts shen but you can still win
JUst make sure hes used most of his stuff then kill him he is very imboile
will reck you try to taunt you can win but you wil most likley die against him, better if you taunt him and let team kill him especially early game
fairly easy jsut watch the stun and your health try to kill him in one blow dont chase him he will eatyou up like that.
I speak spanish btw so you can pm me or comment in either.
yet (Excluding me i main shaco lol hes not about one shot hes about rapid 400 basic attack dmg and 800 crit damage basic attacks, rengar is more of a one shot.
Another good thing is u can combo wich is use your E then almost at the end of it flash I dont reccomend doing this since it is for experinced shen players, it is better to flash then e this also works this combo can also work for escapeing. better to be safe than sorry. for getting away.
It also works great with your best buddy kennen when he is ulting you can simply ult to him so he dosent dies, just make sure u do it early because bad communication could make your teammate use their Zhyona's Hourglass
and mess up the whole process this will cancel your ult. You can also use your ult for escaping. Just make sure that your enemies arent that close to you. Also make sure they dont have someone that can cancel your ult with a knock up or stun like a volibear veigar, vi etc., if damage is inflicted to you it may cancel it too it should not though. in worst case scenarios you can cancel it your self by moving.
In order to steal drag or baron with your ult simply ask a teamate to hide in a bush make sure the dragon or baron IS WARDED OR ELSE IT WILL BE VERY HARD TO STEAL BECAUSE WHEN YOU PUT A WARD THEY CAN SEE IT TILL IT DISAPPEARS FOR 5 SECONDS AND THEY WILL KNOW YOU ARE THERE.
that's the dumbest mistake I see all the time, anyways supposing the baron or drag is warded you would simply wait till baron at 2000 health or around their make then get your teamate to go in and then you flash in and TAUNT THEIR WHOLE TEAM ESPECIALLY THE JUNGLER then Smite baron then prepare to die lol, unless your lucky that your teammate is op asf.
if baron or drag isint warded then ward it and play the running game wich is flee from the guy or two that comes and chases you then do the same it is harded to do since you have more to pay attention to, the only reason you need a teamate rly is to ult to him . TELEPORTING TO THE WARD IS THE DUMBEST IDEA EVER. DONT DO IT.
Titanic Hydra: This is your bread and butter, it does hell lots of damage and you scale DAMAGE OFF YOUR MAX HEALTH SO THE TANKIER YOU ARE THE MORE DAMAGE YOU DO! also when you use the key assigned to the item it does a special effect that double the damage off your main health you can do this every 15 seconds. It is a great way to execute enemies.
Thornmail/Banshees Veil: This depends if your enemy is ad or ap if they tend to more ap and only have one ad which is adc then get banshee's first then thronmail, or vice versa.
Both of these items are really good thorn-mail is excellent against squishy assassin that use basic attacks to kill someone like a shaco. its also a great amount of armor, and it the reason its good against ADC and assassin that use basic attacks is because it returns 25% of the damage they inflict on you plus a little bit more based on you armor. Banshees is great as well because it gives a decent amount of health plus it blocks a fatal enemy ability so lets say a brand ult it will block 500 of the magic damage of that cool down is very long tho around a 1 min and 20 sec cool down.
Maw of malimortus/Randuins omen: this is a must get unless enemy is all ad it give great attack damage a decent amount of magic resist and and some armor pen plus upon being below 300 health grants a shield that blocks 300 magic damage and gives u 10% lifesteal extra attack damage for ten seconds.
Randuins omen is great as well against high crit strike enemies since it reduces the damage taken from crit strikes by 10 percent, another thing is that it has a key assigned item that when activate slows enemies around you for 5 seconds a great way while in the middle of a fight to keep enemies away from you or when chasing a great but expensive combo where you can get the whole team again while they run, in order to do that you need to smite one target flash e and then randuins if your team is followed with you can literally have a second chance to ace. That is the ultimate comb, but in realty randuin is only good vs high crit people like adcs and a yasuo.
Wits end/Warmogs: Wits end is a great item, it gives attack speed plus some magic resist so when you q you can make sure you get ur 3 hits with this item, but the best about it is that it stacks with your q on magic damage when you activate your q and it passives are that it steals up to 25 magic resist from enemy champions ( 5 magic resist per stack you gain stacks by hitting enemy champs.) you do 40 extra magic damage every basic attack. THIS CAN ALLOW YOU TO DO 200 MAGIC DAMAGE BASIC ATTACK WITH YOUR Q AND THEN THE REST OF YOUR MAGIC DAMAGE SO THREE HITS OF YOUR Q DO LIKE 400 DAMAGE IMAGINE YOUR LAST Q HIT WITH HITTING TITANIC HYDRA LIKE 800 DAMAGE!!!!! DAMN!!
Warmogs is great to since it gives you tankiness as hell and regens alot of health after 8 seconds of not takeing damage.
Those are your core items for tankiness and some damage they vary and depend on you enemies if they are ap ad or mixed.
here come other optional items that you could think of getting depending on your situation.
The Bloodthirster: is a really good ad carry item but only build if you have the following cinderhulk,titanic hydra, thornmail, randuins, this item really only applies when enemy team is full ad. The blood thirster overheals you with basic attacks and life steal, and stores extra lifesteal in a small shield.
Frozen mallet: another item to build if enemy is all ad and you need extra health, if enemies are really fast you can slow them down with this since your basic attacks do a little bit more damage and slow them down by 30%
Blade of the Ruined king: another great item to get gives extra attack speed and some lifesteal also does extra damage based how much enemy health is missing, and has a key you can assign as an active that does spell vamp cooldown is 1 minute.
Frozen heart: great item against high attack speed enemy also gives a good amount of armor and some cooldown reduction, its passive that it reduces enemies attack speed by 15 percent withing the range of 1000m.
Dead mans plate: Last but not least is dead mans plate, which is a another good item it gives movement speed stacks, a decent amount of armor and health personally its not my favorite but it will make you do even more damage. You get your stacks by simply moving at 100 stacks you get a little bonus and your next basic attack does double the damage (1 stack =2 damage) also at 100 stacks your next basic attack slows them by 50%. , which IS GREAT BECAUSE IF YOU ADD THAT TO THE COMBO YOU CAN GETS AROUND 400 MAGIC DAMAGE PLUS 1000 DAMAGE WHICH LIKE ALMOST A ONESHOT!!!
then make sure you team follows up with you.
another thing you can do is that if you are experinced, and if the enemy team is pushing your tower or if they are tower hugging their tower you can flash behind their whole team and e them to get them out of their tower or bring them to yours. It is risky but if you preform it right you can ace and take a tower without having to push or you can save a tower like that.
