Hi guys, I'll play LoL again because I can't find a game to replace it... it's just too good... Before I stop playing I was using tankers, trying to use off tankers ( Nasus/ Renekton and going for casters ( Malzahar)... I tried too Master Yi but failed, I don't understand him, how to use him effectively...

Well, I'm going back and I had a big curiosity about Shaco since a lot ago... He seems to be very fun, and strong (I really don't know how, looking his spells on the database my reactions are "wtf, where is the damage?")...

But I think he's hard to master... So I'll ask for your help - You already made me improve with 4 champions, why can't you help with more 1? xD

I searched some guides... but Shaco doesn't really have famous and updated guides...

1- Shaco should jungle or lane bot? - I think jungle but I will not die if I ask
2- AP x AD x Hybrid x Tanky = I saw some guides and I thought this:

AP: Good ratio on every spell, but the active clone, passive and deceive would be less effective
AD: Good passive, deceive, box for fear, good combination of slow + hits (don't remember the name of the slow xD two shiv something?), and great clone... lack survability?
Hybrid: AS + AD or AS + AP or Tri Force... can someone tell me about?
Tanky: Some AD/AS itens and some survability itens... seems great, maybe the best option for newbs (coming back) and noobs (I'm noob with squishy)

3- What you guys think it's the best for him of the builds above? AP, pure AD, Tanky, Hybrid AD+AP, Hybrid Tri-Force, Hybrid AD+AS+lifesteal?

4- Masteries would be 21/0/9?

5- He haves mana issues?

6- ArmP marks (I have ArmP, MagicP, % crit chance), Mana regen/level Seals (have flat armor, health per level and mana regen per level), idk glyphs (only magic resist per level, LOL), idk marks (flat HP, ArmP, flat AS)? - I have all of them "full" (group of 9 or 3...)

7- Summoners spells? Exhaust/Ignite and Flash/Exhaust?

:D
Thx for Nyoike for this sig! Tanks FTW s2

shaco is too squishy of a laner, he needs way less skill that it might seem, he jungles fast as hell and can lvl 2 gank with mid possibly still lvl 1.
Saintvicious guide is your friend

For all you questions about jungling

Shaco's kinda bad in general. His teamfight is terrible. His jungle is the hardest thing in the world.

He's only there to pick off stragglers really. If you can get into a 1v1 situation with a squishy, you will kill them unless someone comes to help.

Honestly, I would just play anyone else in general.

If you want an assassin, try Akali, Kassadin or Talon instead.
If you want a jungler assassin, try Lee Sin (technically he's not an assassin) or Nocturne.

Bot lane should be occupied by a ranged DPS and support.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

I've seen good shaco's. To be a good shaco you need to know when to counterjungle, where to counterjungle, when to gank, where to gank. Memorize the times well. Counterjungle and Gank like mad. = good shaco.

have to agree, his counter jungle is amazing in the right hands and ganks can start from level 2. However he is extremely hard to master, but can be a useful asset if played extremely well.
