Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png and 12.png are the basic summoner spells for top lane, and help Shen have more map pressure. Having 12.png and shenstandunited.png put massive map pressure on the enemy team because if you burn 12.png you will still have Shen's ult, shenstandunited.png

Max shenvorpalstar.pngshenfeint.png, then shenshadowdash.png. Take a point in shenstandunited.png when you can. 

If you are dying use a spell, because shenpassive.png will give you a shield. Using spells that affect enemy champions will reduce the cooldown of shenpassive.png.

Farm with shenvorpalstar.png .  You can also use shenvorpalstar.png to restore energy with shenshadowdash.png's passive rapidly.

You want to combo shenfeint.png with shenshadowdash.pngshenvorpalstar.png for all in. 

Watch your teammates health on the portraits. When a teammate gets low use shenstandunited.png. ( You can click on the portraits to ult even quicker.)

VS

Aatrox

Medium

You can fight him before he reaches 6, but when he gets aatroxR.png he does dmg.

VS

Fiora

Medium

You can fight her if she doesn't have kills, but if she does just hug tower and farm under turret with shenvorpalstar.png.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Hard poke do not pick into this matchup.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Easy to fight by herself if not fed, but in teamfights she will knock you away with poppydiplomaticimmunity.png so you can't peel for your carrys. 

Early Game Back to Top

During early game Shen has great poke with shenshadowdash.png and shenvorpalstar.png combo against his enemy top laner. You can easily kill your opponent or get them so low they have to recall and lose gold and experience. Most of the time you will be pushed up and forcing your enemy laner to farm under tower, so buy a pink and place it in the river bush to prevent dying from ganks. If you are going against an AD top laner build 3068.png first, but if you are going against an AP top laner build 3065.png first. 

Mid Game Back to Top

You usually enter mid game when you take your tower and start roaming or a big teamfight happens. During this stage in the game you want to push top and when someone is dying or a teamfight starts use 12.png or shenstandunited.png to get in the action and tank and peel your teammates. After you deal with the situation that needed attention continue to push top and start working on your second major item, 3512.png, and place it top. When someone comes to contest you pushing the top turret(s) and multiple enemies are missing back off, because you are most likely going to be ganked by multiple enemies and die. After you complete 3512.png build your boots. You will be buying 3111.png  most of the time. After you build boots build more health, armor, or magic resist items depending on what the enemy team is building. DO NOT BUILD DAMAGE!! The only reason to ever build a damage item on Shen top is if you are very far ahead, but only then would you build one damage item, 3748.png.

Late Game Back to Top

You usually enter late game when everyone is completing their item builds and is grouping all the time. At this point in the game no one can afford to die so peel and tank for your carries. You will usually soak up most of the damage in teamfights and ace the enemy team. After acing the enemy team it is a good idea to get a major objective like 5th dragon or baron buff and push to win.
