I love the idea of running approach velocity and building the frozen mallet but i was wondering when or in what order do you actually build it?

If I'm doing okay or quite well, I'll pick it up after my waveclear item such as Sunfire Cape. It's usually built 2nd or 3rd in my builds. If you ever catch me streaming on youtube, I often build and run this page to great success.

Great guide. I appreciate you taking the time to make a quality guide on shen. He's one of my favorite top laners. Your guide is great at giving builds for different situations and uses. Please keep up the good work!

Nice Job!

So I have to ask this because its my main role and I honestly do this. Do you think this build would work for jungle Shen? I know I used to run grasp on him in the jungle and it worked fairly well.

I'm not the greatest at jungling though if you would like my insight on it, I actually run something totally different for jungling. I run Predator Shen taking Ingenious Hunter (2nd rune is preference). I then build a bunch of active items (Tiamat, Randuin's, Locket, Predator, Zz'rot, Jungle Item) and call my build MMO Active Build Predator Jungler Shen LOL. The Ingenious hunter when stacked (easy to do as Shen) will reduce the CD on your active items to pretty low amounts which makes teamfighting/utility more useful.

Awesome guide :D

What are your thoughts on hail of blades since they moved ultimate hat into the domination tree?

Very sorry for the late reply. Hail of Blade is a big no from me.

Hey man, I love your guide! I was just wondering if revitalize is good too, since it works on self shielding and on your ult. Anyway,thanks again for your help! :D

I'm actually not too sure how strong it is. Numbers seem kinda average but who knows may come in clutch when using Stand United on low targets, however I personally feel second wind is alot more useful at the moment with all the annoying poke matchups up top.

Have you considered taking unflinching from resolve, and the tenacity legend rune in the precision tree? with those and merc treads you can get as high as 50% tenacity which is amazing for a mobile tank like shen. not to mention any other tenacity you can reasonably throw in.

That's actually a very strong combo. It's an insane amount of tenacity and this also lets you justify building Tabi's more often when the enemy team has heavy CC. One day I'll rewrite my runes section.

Majority of this guide is still relevant, next major update unfortunately will be when the new runes come out.

Today I realized that a guide can be judged just by taking a look at the items section. I mean, usually there are guides with only a full build and a build path guideline, but nothing more in the beginning and there's no further information later on. Once I see an item section that explains things well, like how to adapt your build to certain situations, I'm sure that the guide has enough information to get started with the given champion. I took a look at the items section on the top of the page, read all the notes you made, and I know that I have to read this guide once or twice, and I will have a huge advantage in knowledge. I played with Shen in season 5, and I started playing with him again. I don't even remember his old w, but I already had a plan of playmaking with him before I played him again. I can't imagine the time and effort you put into this guide, and I can't appreciate it enough. Even if it's a part of a computer game, your guide worth a ********ed fortune!
Oh my god man...I don't have words for this...great guide. :-)

Thank you for enjoying my guide, I've been updating and maintaining this guide over the past few years. I'll be doing another major update when preseason new runes come out. Some things in this guide are outdated, but will be updated soon and still most of the information is still very relevant. :)
