Hi, I am a platinum player with no particular role/champ that I main because I enjoy not getting bored of repetition! :D I own 2 platinum accounts, "i am kahlil" and "Faker Kappa" and an ex-gold prolly will be plat by the end of the season, "Slirx".
Shen doesn't "beat" most top laners. That is not the point. If you build and play him correctly you can and will be an unstoppable force to be reckon with! In most match-ups you will have to farm farm farm until you get juicy. 5k+ HP Juicy!

Keep reading on!

Passive: Ki Strike - Shen's passive is his main source of damage. The great part about is it that the more health you get, the more damage your passive deals. Since your W and auto-attacks reduce the cooldown of Ki Strike dramatically, Shen has the potential to do a lot of damage.

Q: Vorpal Blade - It doesn't have crazy damage (but does have enough to whittle enemies down), the great thing about it is the sustain. Whenever Shen (or an ally) attacks the champion the Shen Q'd, Shen (and his allies that attack the marked enemy) are healed. This is the main reason why attack speed is a core stat in this build. The more auto's you dish out, the more healing you receive. This is what makes Shen a great duelist.

W: Feint - Feint is Shen's shield. It is good for trades under towers and blocking poke and such. Use wisely!

E: Shadow Dash - Shen's E is your only form of CC. It is hard to land, and does basically no damage, BUT it is an 1.5 second Taunt. Shen's E is great for locking down targets and initiating fights.

R: Stand United - Your ultimate shields and teleports you to targeted ally. This is great for protecting carries, initiating fights, etc. Use your imagination! LOL
