Summoner Spells Back to Top

I normally run Flash on Shen but Ghost is pretty decent too. Still prefer Flash because of the taunt-flash but Ghost can also work. 

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

12/0/18-Colossus

Shen has a few things he can do when it comes to masteries. This is the only page I would even think about using for right now with how broken Collosus is. When it is nerfed I might add some other options.

In Resolve I went for Armor and MR instead of Health Regen and Tough Skin for tanking jungle creeps. I also favored the bonus Flat HP since they changed Shen's Q and W.

Fearless is really good because it has very good synergy with shields and all of the armor and mr you get from items and the masteries already taken. The Armor and MR is very good with shields so I take that.  Collosus is pretty broken and it has great synergy with the previous masteries, Cinderhulk, and Shen's Passive Shield.

Ki Barrier

After using an ability, Shen shields himself from 52 - 120 (based on level) (+ 14% bonus health) damage for 2.5 seconds. Abilities that successfully affect champions reduce Ki Barrier's cooldown by 4 - 7.5 (based on level) seconds.
Shen's power manifests as a Spirit Blade that he can control with abilities.

His new Passive is like his old W but stronger. It gives you a shield when you use an ability that becomes stronger the more HP you have. 

Compared to his old W this is really good because Shen's old W was a Flat shield that scaled off of AP. This will help you negate a lot of damage in the jungle. 

The cooldown on your passive is halved when you use an ability on an ally or enemy and this will make you extremely tanky in teamfights.

Twilight Assault

ACTIVE: Shen recalls his Spirit Blade to his location and deals bonus magic damage on his next 3 basic attacks within 8 seconds. Enemies the blade collides with are slowed by 35% when moving away from Shen for the next 2 seconds.

If the Spirit Blade collides with an enemy champion, those attacks each deal 2% (+ 0.5% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health bonus damage and gain 50% bonus attack speed.

Empowered attacks against non-champions deal additional damage, but their damage is capped.

This is your primary damage to camps and champions. This gives your next 3 autos percentage of Max HP damage which is very good for jungle camps and fighting tanks. 

Another thing that is really good is that since the 3 hit damage lasts so long, is to ,when farming, use it about 3 seconds before you are about to start a camp so that you can use it again once you use the first 3 autos and you get 6 autos of empowered damage and this greatly helps your clear. 
This also moves your sword to you which is the basis of your Q and W. It is much like Orianna oriannapassive.png
When ganking/team fighting you want to try to get your Q to pass through enemy champions as much as possible. By doing this you get more damage and attack speed on top of a 35% slow on them if they try to run from you. The best way of doing this reliably is to Taunt then Q through them.

shenfeint.png

Spirit's Refuge

ACTIVE: Shen primes his Spirit Blade for 2 seconds, causing it to project a protective zone around it for 1.75 seconds if he or an allied champion move nearby, granting allies in the zone 100% dodge chance.

This skill is the hardest thing to use in his new kit when vs. other champions reliably. When ganking you will rarely find yourself needing to use this if you are chasing the other lane. However this ability is very strong when the enemy champion(s) is trying to kill your teammate(s). You can negate a lot of damage with this ability and often save your teammate and turn the fight. 
When farming you want to use this when your passive shield goes down and avoid using it when it is up because you will make the shield useless. 

shenshadowdash.png

Shadow Dash

PASSIVE: Shadow Dash's and Twilight Assault's damage recovers 30 / 35 / 40 energy.
ACTIVE: Shen dashes in the target direction, dealing physical damage to all enemy champions he hits and taunting them for 1.5 seconds.

This is your most important skill in ganks and teamfights. It acts as a gap closer and it is your main source of CC. Each level you put in ups the damage and reduces the cool down. Max second always. This gives you great set up for your Q to pass through whoever you taunt. 

shenstandunited.png

Stand United

ACTIVE: Shen channels for 3 seconds, granting the target allied champion an absorption shield that lasts up to 5 seconds.
Upon completing the channel, Shen and his Spirit Blade blink to the ally's location

This is the skill that makes Shen worth picking. This gives you a free 12.png at level 6. This skill is true global so you can go COMPLETELY across the map if needed. 
Use this when ever you see your teammates getting ganked or use it to turn a 1v1 or 2v2 fight!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Go Machete instead of Talisman because Shen only has his taunt for AoE damage on camps so the Machete helps more.
    Go either Tabis, Mercs, or Swiftys depending on enemy comp. Tabis are the best to get in 90% of situation just because of how broken that 12% reduction of basic attack damage is.
    Skirmishers is by far the best Smite in the game. Without Skirmishers you are strictly weaker than Top lane Shen. Red smite is the only advantage that Jungle Shen had over Top lane because it gives him incredible dueling and makes him a great split pusher late game as you can 1v1 just about anybody.
    At level 9 swap for this or just keep yellow totem

Core Items

    These are the 4 main tank items you will get on Shen. Since HP stacking is really good on Shen and you are going Cinderhulk there aren't many times you won't get HP in your items.
    Spirit Visage is the better of the 2 because it gives 10% CDR and having this with Red buff gives you a free warmogs.
    Deadman's is extremely strong on Shen because it allows you to stick onto people and allows you to get your Q through who you are hitting over and over again.
    Randuin's is a good armor item but it is only better than Deadman's first only when they have a Crit champion like Yasuo or Ashe. The top ADs right now dont focus on crit or attack speed so oit is better to get Deadman's first in most situation. This is still a great late game item because most ADCs will have crit late game.

Situational Items

    Thornmail isn't too bad now after the price reduction. It is good vs auto reliant champions and is nice to get after you have a few HP items later on.
    Warmogs was buffed recently to give 10% CDR but i don't find you really need it with the massive regen you can get with red buff/ocean dragon with a spirit visage. Not a bad item, would get if vs a full ap team after i have spirit and banshees.
    This item is pretty broken after the rework on it. It doesn't give any HP but it gives really good MR and decent Armor. The shield will just win fights on its own. An AoE 665 HP shield late game is absurd. Definitely worth a look as a last or even 3rd/4th item.
    Good item to get. It gives good Resistances and a revive so it basically gives 33% max HP bonus. This item also has a subconscious effect on the other team and they will try not to focus you because they know you will just comeback to life. Good 4th or last item.
    I really don't like this item on shen but it mainly comes down to personal preference. It is 3500 gold opposed to 2500 for Wit's End. If you get this I would sit on the Tiamat for a while and upgrade it into Titanic after Spirit Visage/Deadmans.
    The best damage item to get on Shen. With the removal of crit on it is is extremely good on Shen. It gives him great burst and allows him to stick on people with the Phage passive. It gives 20% CDR so getting this one Item puts him at 40% at 18. Don't build SV or Warmogs with it. Only issue is the price but if you are extremely fed do not hesitate to grab this item.
    Poor man's Triforce basically. If the other team is full AP and you want some damage but you don't have too much gold just snag this.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Aatrox is on here just because hes a shit champ jungle so if you see him just have a lane come down while you are killing him and hes a free kill.

VS

Amumu

Medium

Should dick on this man unless he lands a 5 man ult then there might be trouble but otherwise you should just plop your cock on his forehead 

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

You can dodge his Q and can kite him easily so your carries can melt this man.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

You can't duel him but you can kite him around easily without taking too much damage. Always easy to peel off teammates

VS

Ekko

Medium

He can be somewhat hard to play against with him being hard to land taunt on but you will want to wait till he es onto someone before going for your taunt. Most of the time your team won't be able to one shot him in that time but you can chunk him hard and force out his ultimate. You can also counter gank him easily post 6.

VS

Elise

Hard

Elise can just kill your ass in the jungle. That is no bueno.

VS

Evelynn

Medium

Can countergank her easily due to her low cc very easily and your ult can save your carries from her damage in most teamfights however her pre 6 pressure is strong so thats the main part you have to overcome along with her very fast clear.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

Super easy to go against as Shen as long as you go Mercs. You can cancel his Drain with your taunt and you can save your teammates when he ganks since he is reliant on his Ultimate.

VS

Gragas

Easy

This man is pretty big suck right now and he doesn't have much damage so he isn't a particular threat in any situation besides his strong ganks.

VS

Graves

Easy

Pretty easy since your W blocks his Autos and he is relatively squishy.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Can be a bit hard to deal with since he can ult away from you and has very high base damage if he goes a Sheen item but he isn't impossible. This will mainly come down to your team but if he gets fed it can become very difficult.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Since J4 is an auto based champion you can deal with him easily in teamfights however he has strong pre 6 ganks and good burst and fast clears. This matchup mainly comes down to whether or not your lanes die to his ganks.

VS

Jax

Easy

Your W can completely negate Jax in a fight. The only thing you have to do is make sure he doesn't get fed early and he should be easily dealt with later in the game.

VS

Kayle

Easy

Very easy to deal with as Shen. All of her damage besides her Q is auto based and she is very squishy so if you taunt her your team will most likely one shot her or force her to ult herself. She also has very low burst damage so you will be able to counter gank her easily with your ultimate.

VS

Kindred

Medium

So as long as you don't meet her in the river/jungle early you should be alright. She can easily kill you early but in team fights after you have some armor you can easily pick her off if she mispositions 

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

This man will gank early and often. Hard to deal with pre 6. Once you hit 6 you start to outscale him. If your team can live til you get 6 hes pretty easy to deal with.

VS

Maokai

Medium

This all comes down to your team vs his team. His team fighting is stronger than yours while you have better protection for your own team than he does.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Can easily fuck on this man. You both farm to 6. You have very good dive potential and counter gank potential against him. In team fights if you land taunt he should be instakilled by your team.

VS

Nasus

Easy

You can kite him around and peel him off easily in fights

VS

Nocturne

Medium

His nocturneparanoia.png completely counters Shen ultimate. In team fights however extremely easy to deal with. If he goes tanky Nocturne he is EXTREMELY easy to deal with. If he goes Assassin then he will most likely kill whoever he is ulting before you can ulti. Always get a Banshees vs Nocturne because the spell shield with block the vision denial.

VS

Nunu

Easy

I mean its Nunu, like there isn't much of a matchup here. He will probably just troll the entire game and I mean he's Nunu. 

VS

Olaf

Hard

Can just ignore your taunt and kill your carries while you just stare at him

VS

Pantheon

Easy

Easy to shut down because he has no escape and if he ults into a fight you can taunt him before he can do anything as long as you time it right. Your shenstandunited.png also counters his pantheon_grandskyfall_jump.png and since he is a slow farmer you will most likely be around the same level.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Poppy is pretty annoying to play against. In teamfights she can completely negate your taunt and she has alot of base damage and CC. She is decently easy to peel off your carries after her W is done and she Es in.

VS

Rammus

Easy

If you Q him when he taunts a teammate you can negate a large amount of the damage they will take and he is easily kited and peeled off your carries

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

You can win just somewhat hard because of her pre 6 gank potential and her ability to ult all over the map.

VS

Rengar

Easy

As long as you hit 6 at the same time extremely easy to face. Your shenstandunited.png completely counters his rengarR.png. In fights he is easy to taunt and your team can instakill him.

VS

Sejuani

Easy

Very bad early ganks and you can counter her post 6 ganks. In fights you will be peeling her off most of the time which will be pretty easy. If she is at all behind you can ignore her after her ultimate and go for her carries.

VS

Shaco

Easy

If you see this man on the other team you start either your red or blue and book it to the other one. This man is Chuck E Cheese himself and the way you win is to not order a large pizza if you catch my drift.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

This one just comes down to if your support can help you peel, if you don't have that she will just rundown your carries

VS

Vayne

Hard

cancer

VS

Vi

Easy

Pretty easy to deal with now that your clear is somewhat fast now. At 6 you are able to counter gank her pretty effectively and in teamfights she is easy to kill because once she goes in there is no way out.

VS

Volibear

Easy

Very easily dealt with your level 6 is just strictly better than his and your W can stop his Q and most of his damage since he is an Auto based champion.

VS

Warwick

Easy

He can only gank when he is 6 as long as he doesn't hit 6 way before you then you can counter gank him easy with your ult. In fights he is useless against you.

VS

Wukong

Medium

He can be a bit hard to deal with in team fights but his pre 6 ganks are not good at all so he will most of the time give your team a free early game. You should try to get off more pre 6 ganks than he does and try to make him waste as much time as possible.

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

So this guy beats you 1v1 every time unless he is ridiculously weak or something but he still take a while to kill you so in team fights you just taunt him and pinata him.

VS

Zac

Easy

Pretty easy to deal with, he is like Shen but just not as cool so you can beat him every time. Just make sure he can't get to your carries for too long.

Shen Jungle Summary Back to Top

Hey guys Voiir here, showing you how to dick on kids with Shen jungle. Shen is pretty good in long duels and skirmishes, but isn't the best at bursting someone down. So he is very good vs. other tanks and melees but has issues with Champions that can kite him easily.


When you do your first camp Q at 1:35 seconds. This will give you 6 empowered autos on the camp. Make sure you use your second Q when you passive comes up again for the shield. 

You can also block 2 autos on a Jungle camp with your W. You need to activate it right as you see that auto attack animation going off. This will make you take alot less damage on your clears. However you only want to activate your W once the camp has taken off your passive shield.

Your W can also block many champions skills like Twisted Fate W, Wukong Q, Darius W, Renekton W, Ezreal Q, Yasuo Q, and other auto based skills.

When in fights you want to Eshenshadowdash.png then Qshenvorpalstar.png through that person. This will lower the cooldown on your passive alot make sure not to use your Wshenfeint.png while your shield is on you but wait til you have about 1 second left on the cooldown of it. The shield will go off after the dodge zone is done, that means you got your shield then you were immune to autos after then got another shield. This blocks so much damage and this is why Shen is so good in late game fights. Also look to position your Wshenfeint.png on top of your allies at the same time as you.

Gank lanes with good setup and once you hit 6 go for counterganks. Your kit is absurd for counterganks and you will win most 2v2s or 3v3s.

The Taunt Flash trick is something pretty simple to get the hang of. It is a very useful thing to do because it increses your range on taunt by a ton and it is very hard to dodge because it will taunt where you have your cursor at. Example: https://goo.gl/73Fg1A

Shen is not a good initiator but he is a very good counter engager with his ultimate. Most of the time you want to just split push and wait for the other team to engage and ult in. Do not split if the other team has hard engage though. This goes for any champion and any role. If you split and they have hard engage then most often one of your teammates will die before you even show up or they can completely stop your ultimate by killing your target.

Someone made a very nicely made video on a bunch of little Shen tricks so I'm going to link it here: https://goo.gl/a91sFB It shows much of the things I explained but a video is always better.
