Summoner Spells Back to Top

Teleport: Simply because as a top laner you need to be able to join in on free kills or simply to not miss CS.

- perfect for coming right back to lane after getting a key item or to TP bot to get nice clean up on the ad and sup.





Ignite: We take this for two reasons...
- secure a top lane solo kill after you combo
- Keep down healing from known offenders while fighting..(48.png23.png)

Ignite is also just a very good aggresive spell to take on a champion such as my man Shaco.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

This is a very standard high damage Mastery page that I run on alot of my Shaco games just due to the HIGH HIGH early game AP. It bodes very well with the jackinthebox.png making for some pretty easy lane trades or lane cs denial.

Start W for obvious reasons and max it as SOON as possible (Level 9 every game)


Get 3 levels in your Q first if your playing safe but you CAN max E second if you know you can play aggressive without needing a long Q invis time.

I do NOT max my R at all due to the fact is unreliable damage at best and is mainly used to outplay hard damage such as Lux R or the occasional hard CC such as Veigar W.

You never max Q after W however and you should stop at level 3 Q as it is well enough invis time for you to make a clean escape.

E MECHANICS:

Shaco E does %missing HP meaning you can use it to secure Kills, secure Cannon Minion fairly easy (From low Hp the e does around 150 to cannon making secure fairly simple) as well as lane harass as we are all fairly used to from laning against Shacos before.

Q MECHANICS:

Q is a teleport; Abuse it in lane, in fights, in getaways, it is a lower CD Ezreal E and it does far more damage when combing the Q damage with your backstab passive. (upwards of 200 dmg from a level 1 Q and an AD item such as Tiamat)

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    standard start for poke heavy laners.
    first back items 1050g
    second back core rush: always hextech first

Core Items

    the bread and butter of split push shaco
    you need this item. dont skip out on the pen

Situational Items

    lich bane first always

So as we know the Shaco builds have been crazy this pre-season so i'll run this down for you:


AP Shaco isn't INHERENTLY good. However Items such as 3152.png and 3100.png make AP Shaco disgusting due to the item passives. 

Shaco jackinthebox.png is just such a good ability in team engagements and 1v1 scenarios (this ability just screams cheese)
that when combined with the burst from these two AP items it becomes hard to really play against and with my build into the Tiamat rush after Protobelt you are just a split push machine.

(incase you didnt know) Protobelt can be cast to the side of a minion wave and will essentially one shot the wave from the moment you purchase it. And Tiamat just does AOE auto damage (which is clearly helpful).

The idea of the build is this: you get your CORE three items 3152.png3077.png3135.png Then you immediatly start building towards a 3100.png which just further enhances that one shot combo making you fairly hard to play against ON TOP of the fact you are so elusive.

Matchups Back to Top

Click on a champion below to see the author's notes on that particular matchup.

Matchups Back to Top

Matchups generally go like this: 


Most melees: almost any lane can be won if your jackinthebox.png placement is two things: Unpredictable and NATURALLY hindering to the enemy laner.
- If I was to W inside my own caster line against lets say a 48.png. The only real way he can contest for his CS is if he face tanks my W meaning i get free poke off with my Corrupting pop and E, AS WELL AS, the possibility of me Q'ing into him and getting huge harass on my laner.
  - this is the kind of mindset NEEDED to be succesful to play Shaco: what can I do to hinder my laner while also maintaining my (really small) mana pool.

To Finish Melee: Essentially you can almost always win lane if they bait themselves into a bad fight against you (happens a lot trust me) or you make them lose CS enough to the point where you can begin freezing wave.

Ranged: These are inherently harder as Shaco is a melee champion and the ranged top laners normally consist of very very meta champions such as 150.png and 126.png. Jayce is currently one of my top bans due to his sheer lane presence and control of the lane itself with his jayceW.png and his jayceE.png
There are some cheese picks such as 74.png but....Screw that champion h28gevolutionturret.pnghextechmicrorockets.png lmao.

BOX MECHANICS Back to Top

To understand and play Shaco well you need to understand what his jackinthebox.png is all about:


1.) when placed it is visible
2.) it has scaling HP and cannot be stacked on top of each other
3.) when left alone it becomes invisible and invulnerable unless True vision is granted or Sweeping lens comes into play.
4.) when a champion or minion comes into range The surrounding enemies are feared and become damaged by the box itself.
- Useful for holding a wave while backing or simply getting CS; this ability is high utility at its finest.
How to use W:
Common placements:
1.) Bushes; no surprises coming from ur jg :D
2.) in your minion wave; Already discussed as an area of denial spell for laners ect...
3.) in between the top lane itself and the entrance to river: VERY IMPORTANT 
 - this will save you so many times its ridiculous.
 - acts as a free ward essentially that doesn't have limitations on the amount you can place.
4.) use it to block skillshots..
 - this is one of Shaco's more skill capped mechanics as you can seriously outplay oppenents who rely on long range skillshots such as Thresh threshQ.png or Lee Sin blindmonkqone.png to get in on you.
There are many many more uses for Shaco Boxes but that is for you to discover as I am myself!
