New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Sorcery since you have enough AS in runes.
Battle Trance is my new favorite, I hate taking extra damage with Doblue Edged Sword.
Greenfathers because you can easily proc it in fights.
Thunderlords still great damage.

Get deceive.png level 2 in case of invades, also if you start Raptor/Red you could get a level 2 gank off if mid is overextending. twoshivpoison.png lets you farm a little bit faster, so if you think you're safe til level 3 go for it. 


Otherwise max hallucinatefull.png > deceive.png > twoshivpoison.png > jackinthebox.png

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Jungle's a bit harder to start Rejuv, so just start refil.

Core Items

    Tiamat always required ASAP, boots 1 then Trinity after. Finish boots 2 after trinity.
    These are your follow up options after Trinity. Explanation of items below.
    These boots. Tabis is op, Mercs vs lot of cc. Swifties if you are ahead or in a spot where mercs/tabis wouldn't be effective.

Situational Items

    Solid final build (pick your boots). Sunfire/Omen/Deadmans interchangeable depending.
    My Preference

TL;DR

"i'm not here to read, tell me what to build" 
3077.png > 1001.png > 3078.png > 3009.png > 3742.png > 3155.png >  3026.png > 3748.png >3156.png

TL;DR with Some Specifics


If Ahead:  3077.png1001.png3078.png > boots2 > 3026.png > 3742.png > 3748.png > 3143.png or 3068.png
If vs one AP: 3077.png1001.png3078.png > boots2 > 3742.png > 3026.png   > 3748.png > 3143.png or 3068.png
If vs heavy AP: 3077.png1001.png3078.png > boots2 > 3155.png > 3026.png   > 3748.png > 3156.png > 1413.png or 3083.png
If as all AD:  3077.png1001.png3078.png > 3047.png > 3742.png > 3143.png > 3075.png >3748.png 

Full Item Explanation

Core

3077.png > 1001.png > 3078.png

This every time. Never upgrade 1041.png

Trinity Components

3078.png

Any order is fine:

3044.png gives some tankiness and movement speed, my personal favorite
3057.png only if you can get outright, don't buy a sapphire crystal please.
3101.png helps with jungling, also gives cdr.

After Trinity and Boots2

3026.png 

This one of the best items if you are way ahead. This helps you tank a bit more with the added benefit of limiting your opponent's options.

OR

3155.png
This if vs bursty ap or multiple ap

OR

3742.png 3068.png 3143.png
See Armor Items Section


BOOTS

3047.png 3111.png 3009.png

VS CC get 3111.png. TF or Morgana alone is enough to justify mercs most times.  

3047.png are really nice, if they don’t have a lot of CC to justify 3111.png it’s the best boot. vs Cait, Jhin, Twitch it’s a must buy.

If they don’t have a heavy Auto Attack Marksman like EZ/Varus or the AD is so behind you don’t care AND they don’t have a lot of CC grab 3009.png. I’d also grab 3009.png if I’m way ahead.

3117.png are okay, give you a lot of pressure, never build 3117.png with 3068.png


ARMOR ITEMS

3742.png 3068.png 3143.png

3742.png helps with your burst. deceive.png +  3078.png + Greenfathers + 3742.png makes for some nice oneshot potential.

3068.png does some damage, helps you clear even faster, better against tanks. Less aggressive than 3742.png more aggressive than 3143.png
3143.png love getting this vs Jhin + 3047.png reduces his 4th shot dmg by 22%. Full AD this is a great item. Doesn't do any damage tho so take that into consideration.

3075.png vs all AD, buy after at least one other armor item.

MAGIC RESIST ITEMS

3156.png 3026.png 
If midgame you find yourself getting bursted. Grabbing an early 3155.png and setting it in your bags is fine. This usually when you have top/mid ap, or an early ap threat like a fed 105.png
Otherwise with scaling MR blues 3156.png3026.png is plenty of MR if they have a few threats. Build more HP if you think you're still getting rekt by their ap.

HEALTH ITEMS


3083.png 1413.png

Health is what I build instead of MR. 

1413.png scales your HP up, when combined with 3748.png your damage actually goes up. Grab 3751.png as your last slot item, if for some reason you upgraded smite to 3715.png just build it into cinder as your 6th item.
3083.png gives you insane health regen if you can manage to get out of fights, get back to full hp and get back in there. I only build this if i don't need to grab the armor items and I feel like getting flamed by my teammates.

DAMAGE ITEMS

3031.png great dmg, increases backstab dmg. Since the buff extra crits don't hurt
3153.png this has the potential to become core. Build if you find yourself splitting.

SITUATIONAL ITEMS

3123.png if they have an ahead 50.png19.png8.png or if they have a combination of those champs, build it into 3033.png last item
3715.png very rarely do I do this. Only if I need to delete or duel someone because they're stomping my team in team-fights like 29.png
3071.png This undermines the whole guide but there's potential, do not build 3078.png at the same time. Get 3153.png with it.

7.7 Nerf Notes


With 7.7 we saw a nerf to deceive.png it doesn't do damage anymore. I still think it needs to be maxed first. The cooldown is too huge to keep it at 16 seconds. So with this build, since you can take some damage a lower CD is a must.

For the build:

I'm testing 1419.png and I like it a lot. If you do this swap 3078.png for 3071.png and stall your 3026.png even if ahead. I've also tried Fervor, it's really nice against tankier toplanes. But for the moment I still think Thunderlords is Superior. 

Hard to tell what's best yet.

VS

Evelynn

Medium

Watch for cheesy invades. If she gets her lanes ahead before you get yours ahead you're in trouble. Pressure lanes and force her to farm, once she's behind she can be invaded pretty easily.

VS

Ezreal

Hard

This is the worst ADC match-up imo, he creates huge distance and if he builds 3025.png you'll have a hell of a time trying to focus him in fights. 

VS

Graves

Hard

His pressure is insane. He can farm circles around you early. He cleanly beats you in duels all game. Best chance you have is to gank early and hope you can put his lanes too far behind that he's forced to just farm.

VS

Janna

Medium

Janna/Lulu good luck getting on carries in teamfights. You most likely won't out damage the sustain, so fighting AD's with Janna/Lulu makes team-fighting hard. You'll need to focus on going in and out, zoning the AD from the fight, blowing Janna/Lulu cooldowns then re-engage.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

He out-pressures you super hard. He can just keep ganking lanes and farming well because his clear is so much better than yours early.


If he tries to invade you can win the duel with 14.png otherwise, try to pressure more. If he back to back ganks your laners and gets kills, you're gonna have a bad time.

You can kinda dodge blindmonkrkick.png but not really, it doesn't go on cooldown if you dodge it, and you still get knocked back if you both ult at the same time.

VS

Lulu

Hard

Janna/Lulu good luck getting on carries in teamfights. You most likely won't out damage the sustain, so fighting AD's with Janna/Lulu makes team-fighting hard. You'll need to focus on going in and out, zoning the AD from the fight, blowing Janna/Lulu cooldowns then re-engage.


lulue.png reveals you

VS

Twisted Fate

Hard

This match-up could ruin you're whole game. His destiny.png cucks you super hard. If you want to target ban for yourself I recommend banning. 


You can dodge his pickacard.png with your hallucinatefull.png

VS

Zilean

Medium

You can't use hallucinatefull.png to dodge zileanq.png so don't try.

Tarzaned labeled Shaco as S tier jungler citing multiple challengers using Tiamat > Trinity in this video @1:30 

I've been running Trinity Shaco since the end of Season 6, it got me to Diamond on a crazy win streak. Since then i've been running variations of Trinity and Tank Shaco in season 7. I've been building this for so long it's nice to see it being one of the more dominant builds, and i'd like to share my experiences with it and help people get their footing with this playstyle.

Message on Nerfs.


The deceive.png nerf in 7.7 was a straight up nerf to every version of Shaco, that's true. All this did however was pinhole his build into Bruiser even more, at least for high win% Shacos.

How I think you should nerf him:

If you want him to be Bruiser:

This last round is probably balanced for him. making his deceive.png utility only is a great change.

If you want him to be an Assassin:

Adjust his damage values so he can't quite 100% a squishy with even gold, but still do a decent chunk, people should be using spells to keep squishies up. But give him an option to exit the fight. My idea is let his hallucinatefull.png reset the CD on  deceive.png
CRAZY I KNOW but this lets him build 100% damage, no tank items and still be useful in fights because he gets 2 chances to engage.

Zed gets his Shadows to leave and engage, Shaco should have a reliable way to get out also.
