Around lvl 20 - 30 I have been playing Shen, as I never EVER played free rotation champs, after having a few games as him, he is AMAZING I immediately accumulated 3150Ip and bought him.
I reckon Shen is a great tank that can save his team, get some kills of his own and most of all tank. In this build i will be talking about what he is good at, how you should play him and how not to play him, know when to use your ultimate if you and the victim are going to survive.
P.s. I suggest you be a premade team or you lane with a premade mate of yours as I did in the video under the Runes section so that you can coordinate the kills/evenly share them amongst each other.
Heal - This is a great item for the team, but I like my slow.
Fortify - Typical Tank item, its great, but for only a few seconds...worth it?
Teleport - Great for getting back to you outpost but, if your that desperate to get back to your tower, ask a comrade to stay there so that you can just ultimate back to them.
Clairvoyance - IMO (in my opinion) This isnt really all that worth it for some map visibility, just get a team mate to get it or just be lucky and have someone already have a move e.g. hawkshot, teemo shrooms and so on.
Clarity - No, Shen doesnt even use mana.
Flash - Seriously, you got a 2-in-1 move, its called shadow dash.
Rally - Hahaha, Just no.
Smite - WE ARE NOT JUNGLING!!!
Ignite - WE ARE A TANK....NOT A KILLER.
