Summoner Spells Back to Top

Shaco doesn't really need flash. You can use it if you want to learn the champion.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

These masteries are perfect for shaco, nothing much to explain here. You are going to rely on burst damage mixed with AA's.

Level up E early instead of Q if you're not going to counter jungle or gank.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with this in most games.
    Other option if you just want to do a full jungle clear.
    On your first recall get either two longswords or a Tiamat, if you have enough. On your second recall get one of the jungle items and boots. If you need CC get Stalker, if you need dueling get Sabre.
    Road to Hydra
    Rack up the defense

Core Items

    This is Shaco's core. I recommend upgrading the jungle item after you get GA because you still have enough damage. If you're really fed you can afford it, otherwise I would just leave it for late game.
    Late Game
    Final Build

Situational Items

    vs Full AD you can replace Maw with one of these.
    vs Full AP replace Randuin with one of these. You will still need to keep Ninja Tabi because of their ADC.

This is Shaclone's challenger build from season 5, still works if you check out my latest video.

VS

Aatrox

Easy
You can level 1-2 invade him, don't let him jungle and farm his items. His ganks are really strong if he hits his CC, so follow him in his jungle and try to counter jungle hard.

VS

Amumu

Easy
Easiest match up, counter jungle him forever.

VS

Diana

Medium

Diana has huge damage when she gets to her level 6 burst, you can tank her damage and let your team wreck her, just don't try to duel her if she has a kill or two.

VS

Graves

Medium
You can counter jungle him but be careful from duels, he is ranged and can E away from your Q. If you want to outplay him just take his jungle, or prepare box traps to kill him.

VS

Illaoi

Hard

This champion is so far very broken. If your top laner is doing bad against her, I'd stay away from top lane and go carry bot and mid as hard as I can. Just ignore top lane, she will get a double kill against you. Also NEVER stay in her ultimate zone.

VS

Irelia

Medium

If Irelia is fed on top lane or jungle, you should be extra careful. She has multiple gap closers and can chase you down if you Q in the wrong direction. Camp her top at least 2 times and hope your laner can handle her. If she's not fed, you can still be a threat to her late game.

VS

Kindred

Hard

Very annoying jungler, you can counter jungle her, but she will most likely get tons of kills from other lanes if your laners won't ward properly or over extend.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium
Very easy to counter jungle, unless its a pro Lee Sin. Diamond 5 and below are average, and you can easily counter jungle them. If they are fed they can still one shot you, and deal quite a lot of damage even when not fed, so try to engage him after he Q's on someone.

VS

Master Yi

Medium

Early game you own him, go counter jungle his ass! Take his whole jungle. Follow him if you have to and try to counter gank. If he's behind its very hard for him to come back. If he is fed, well, god help you.

VS

Rengar

Easy

Pretty easy to counter jungle and still deal with him mid game and late. If he is ultra fed, he won't be able to one shot you with this build. Try to peel for your teammates if he is fed.

VS

Sejuani

Easy
Counter jungle her FOREVER. Don't her jungle. If they send help, just go back and return again to harass her. Her ganks are powerful but if she is behind she won't be able to do much!

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Well, he is just annoying. Try to give your top laner at least 2 ganks, and don't duel him. Just kite him with your clone and Q away. Let your team kite him to death and try to distract him, stay away from his AA.

VS

Vi

Hard

Early game she is not a bad duelist! You can counter jungle her and win the trade mostly, but be careful, he she gets help from mid lane, unlike other champions, you won't be able to 1v2 them with red buff and ignite. Watch the map when you counter jungle her. Late game she out duels you if she's fed.

VS

Warwick

Medium

He has a very high sustain in jungle, it won't be simple to counter jungle him, only engage him if you have red buff. Early game is your best option to defeat him, don't wait for his level 6 ganks.

Intro Back to Top

Hello, my nickname is EvilLurker and currently Animal Instincts on EUW. I was Bronze Season 1, Platinum Season 2 and 3, and Diamond seasons 4 and 5.

I am playing this game since beta, and I have a lot of experience with Shaco so I wanted to share my build with you.

I currently stand on Diamond 4, with 2 smurfs - one in plat 1, and the other on plat 5.

The God Clown Back to Top

If you ever loved making a mess in teamfights, causing havoc in the enemy jungle, and just being an annoyance, Shaco is the best champion you can play.

It took me a long long time to find the perfect build for him.

If you want to play assassin shaco, go ahead and take full damage, kill your target,
but most likely you will die in the process or afterwards because you won't have many escapes.

However, if you want to deal tons of damage and still be able to sustain..
Or even better, ever dreamt of peeling against 4 enemy champions?

I have recently played against 3 supertanks - Dr Mundo, Amumu and Tahm Kench while the
enemy team had 2 carries. Basically what I did is kept them busy for around 10 seconds,
while Mundo chased their carry 1v4. He died in the process, and so did I, but afterwards
their team had 2 carries with half hp from my damage, and my team were able to clean up
and get a swift victory..

Not only that, you can completely nullify an enemy jungler like Amumu or others, and make them useless for half the game at least. When the enemy jungler is neutralized, all your lanes have to do is either play passive or win their lanes. No jungler involved, PURE SKILL GAME. And when he is weak, your ganks will matter.

That's what bruiser shaco is capable of.

Try this build and you won't regret it.

By the way, if you're new to Shaco, I suggest playing at least 100 games before judging.
He takes a lot of skill and cunning to master.

Runes Back to Top

Explanation for runes is quite simple.
I took extra armor for counter jungling, the magic resist per level gives you the
edge against ap champions late game, and the attack speed quints is for clears and dueling.

I have a lot of experience, these are the perfect runes.

NOTE: If you are not going to counter jungle I suggest taking standard armor seals and 3x attack speed quints.

Counter Jungle Back to Top

This is the fun part with shaco.
This is why I love playing him.

Counter jungling.

How?
Put 4 JitB on red buff (start at 45 seconds), kill it, put another jitb on the mini minion beside it, AA it once, and AA the rest on the other mini minion. Head towards blue buff.
If the jungler is there and started blue, all you have to do is smite it, since he won't have smite - he wasted it on grump. Otherwise, just take the buff and SEARCH FOR THEM

DUEL THEM! Make them cry! Put jitb and start auto attacking with red buff. The ignite you have will make sure you win your duels. Make them waste flash. Take their whole jungle.

If they call for help, watch the minimap. Sometimes you can even ONE VS TWO and get away with killing one of them. Enemy mid laner will most likely interfere, but I had times when I killed both of them. Just keep doing auto attacks with your red buff, and use your Q's and JitB to outplay. After a while doing it, you will master it and make chaos in their jungle.

Check my channel and search for Shaco videos on youtube (Search for "EvilLurker Shaco")

Team Fights Back to Top

Basically you have two options.
1. Peel for your carries
2. Distract the enemy carries

Oh and another option - Assassinate low hp targets.

If your adc is fed, you might want to peel for him. Just Q into the enemy gap closer and use your tools to slow him down and damage.

If their adc is fed, try to q into them, use your combo and ignite to scare them, and immediately R and send your clone into them, then back away. This will create confusion, they will start attacking your clone while you escape and distract them while your carries deal with the front line.

Your other option, if your team is ahead, just search for low hp carries and combo them to death, then proceed to peel for your adc.
