Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
To start of I have been playing shen for about 3 months now and haven't looked back, even when I bought Wukong with RP, so when I first started playing shen seriously I did pretty well but I noticed something, a huge mechanical glitch which is he doesn't have any initial mana which is why I chose the runes which I did it is to give you a nice starting amount of mana without hurting your late game. So the plan is to have health, energy and mana. This setup allows for some awesome harassment throughout the game.
I start off with a mana crystal because of the early mana boost which will help you so much more in your early jungling than what most people suggest which is the meki pendant, while mana regen is important to shen mana crystal has so many uses.
Pros of mana crystal early game:
-Great initial mana (around 200 if my calculations are correct)
- 30 seconds into the game and you already have a crystal (everyone will think you are a rich guy).
- It only costs 400 gold ( so you have gold left over for other things)
I use my clarity at the summoner platform to help people get their mana replenished faster as this will help then leave the platform faster. This tactic which I use is normally received well with a friendly "derp" from my comrades. I quickly run out of my base and run straight to the blue buff, I wait until it re-spawns and quickly taunt it with the early point in E this forces it to attack me allowing me to quickly kill the two small lizards at it's side, I discovered this glitch quite recently which is the big golem keeps attacking you even though the taunt has long worn out ( I have written to riot several times about this glitch but yet to hear a response) I think its a hidden passive or something. But anyway I let the blue golem kill me and quickly revive using the speed boost from revive to run into mid for a gank, being only level 1 at this point your ganks aren't amazing but even if the gank failed you can stay in mid lane to about level 3 or 4. Your team mate in middle lane might say "GTFO NOOB" But to which I just reply "Get the flood out?" "we are not playing Halo here"
Mid game and team fights
when A team fight breaks out in mid for example stop the game and play this music
once the music has started go and clear the wraith camp and possible the other teams wolves. By this stage you should be seriously pwning up so don't be surprised if you see on all chat stuff like "Shen is so pro" and "Our shen Ftw".
