This is my Hybrid Assassin Shen guide. It is also my first guide ever so please go easy on me. This Shen build is designed for a top lane Shen with a tanky jungler on your team. You must use your ultimate as usual but the play style is much different than your average Shen.

For runes go as follows:
-Hybrid Pen. Marks
-Armor Seals
-Scaling MR Glyphs
-AP, HP, or Energy quints

Don't try to bush the lane extremely hard. If your opponent is bad, then push, but make sure to ward. I prefer to farm closer to my tower for safety, but constantly harass with your Q. Also, stand where he would stand if you are confident to deny him cs.
