After completing an ability's effects, Shen shields himself from 60-111 (depending on level) (+14% of bonus health) damage for 2.5 seconds. If the triggering ability successfully affected at least one champion, Ki Barrier's cooldown is reduced by 4−7.5 seconds (depending on level).

Shen's power manifests as a Spirit Blade that he can control with his abilities.

Shen recalls his Spirit Blade to his location. Enemies the blade collides with are slowed by 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% for the next 2 seconds when moving away from Shen.

Once it arrives, Shen empowers his next 3 basic attacks within 8 seconds to gain 75 bonus range and deal 10 / 16 / 22 / 28 / 34 / 40 (at levels 1 / 4 / 7 / 10 / 13 / 16) plus 2 / 2.5 / 3 / 3.5 / 4% (+1.5% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health as bonus magic damage.

If the Spirit Blade collides with an enemy champion, the empowerment is enhanced, dealing 3% (+0.5% per 100 AP) of the target's maximum health as bonus damage and Shen gains 50% bonus attack speed.

Twilight Assault deals double damage to monsters, up to a maximum of 120 / 140 / 160 / 180 / 200 bonus damage.

200 / 180 / 160 / 160 / 160
Shen channels for 3 seconds, shielding the target allied champion for 5 seconds. The shield blocks 175 / 350 / 525 (+130% of ability power) damage, scaling up to 280 / 560 / 840 (+130% of ability power) based on the target ally's current health (shield maxes out at 40% health).

Upon completing the channel, Shen and his Spirit Blade teleport to the target ally's location.
