Summoner Spells Back to Top

98.png
Brief Explanation of Play style
 Shen is a strange champion, he is very versatile. Shen players mainly focus on two roles, damage dealer, or, usually, tank. Your goal with Shen is to secure kills for yourself or your teammates, all while preventing anyone on your team from dying.

4.png
FLASH
 Flash is very useful for Shen because it lets him engage or disengage easily. But it also works well with his shenshadowdash.png because you can easily flash and taunt to save a life, or flash and taunt to take a life.


14.png
IGNITE
 Ignite gives Shen lots of early game pressure and usually ends with Shen getting first blood. You can play more aggressively and take advantage of Shen's tankiness. 


12.png
TELEPORT
Just lets Shen become more mobile and able to engage more in fights, and backdoor.

UNYEILDING
This is great for you if you have tank runes, like the ones above, because you can stay in lane longer and usually survive from early ganks.

EXPLORER
Makes you more mobile, so you can get to team-fights faster and escape faster. But you have to plan strategically.

RUNIC ARMOR
Boosts your passive shield, and, boosts your Grasp of the Undying and Vampirism lifesteal.

PERSERVERANCE 
Could save your life and lets you stay in lane longer to farm early game. Helps late game if you have 3083.png.

SWIFTNESS
Lets you escape from fights more easily. Champions like Ashe with a lot of slows which could end your life.

GRASP OF THE UNDYING
Very good sustain. The Grasp of the Undying and Fury combo works extremely well for early game pressure, if you engage early for a kill you can possibly get first blood and have enough health left to farm.

FURY
Works well with your Grasp of the Undying and Vampirism for more sustain.

EXPOSE WEAKNESS
Great for team-fights. That's all.

VAMPIRISM
Sustain. Sustain. Sustain.

OPPRESSOR
Works well with yourshenvorpalstar.png lets you deal more damage if you get it through an enemy champ.

CD= Cooldown

shenpassive.pngPASSIVE CD~ 10 secs

Grants you a shield after you cast a spell.Works great to shield yourself during ganks. Very useful because it can stop ignites, help you survive Zed ults, etc. Make sure you keep track of the counter, so you know when you have a shield or not. Use this for when you engage so you can out trade your laner.

shenvorpalstar.pngQ~Twilight Assault CD:8/7.25/6.5/5.75/5 secs

Makes a "spirit blade" appear, said blade is called to you when you activate this ability. After activation, your next 3 auto attacks deal bonus damage. Does % (3/3.5/4/4.5/5 [+0.015*AP) of target's max health as magic damage, but you don't have to build AP as it deals a lot of damage on its own. Main damage dealing spell. Max this out a little early game so you can get maximum kill potential. Very useful for shredding tanks, works well with your shenfeint.png. Can help shred tanks on enemy team.

shenfeint.pngW~ Spirit's Refuge CD:18/16.5/15/13.5/11 secs

Creates an area for 1.75 seconds in which auto attacks targeting you or your allies that are in the area, are blocked.
Only activates where your shenvorpalstar.png is, so make sure its is near enough fro you to be in the area. If you, or none of your allies, are in the area, this ability won't activate for 2 seconds or until you or one of your allies steps into the area. Great for baiting enemies into going in on low allies, and shielding said allies so they can escape. Then killing the enemy.

shenshadowdash.pngE ~ Shadow Dash CD:18/16/14/12/10 secs

Has a nice passive in which dealing damage with shenshadowdash.png or shenvorpalstar.png gives you 30/35/40 energy. Does %health damage          ( 50/75/100/125/150[+12% bonus health] )as physical damage, and taunts your enemies. Great if used with 3068.png and/or 3075.png as the enemy will be forced to stand still and auto attack you, activating Thornmail's passive and making them take damage from Sunfire's passive. Can save low-health allies if they are being chased.


shenstandunited.pngR~Stand United CD:180/150/120 secs

After standing still and channeling for 3 seconds, Shen teleports to a chosen ally and shields them from 250/550/850 damage for 5 seconds, scales with your AP. (+1.35*AP). Also brings your spirit blade along with you when you teleport, so you can engage the enemy easily. You can use this to save your allies, or just tp to one of them to help push nexus turret, or helps make a play.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Against AD laner, refillable potions because it costs more early, but you can keep using them. use cloth armor to build straight into Sunfire's Cape.
    Against AP laner, you don't have refillables so you'll have to rely on your lifesteal and just play safe. Build Null-Magic mantle into a magic resist item of your choice. (Banshee's veil, etc.)

Core Items

    Core
    Full Tank NOTE: Not for damage, just so you can be unkillable
    TANK // Damage If u want to annoy the hell out of your laner

Situational Items

These are just the base of what you should get. The build is very adaptable, so don't be afraid to try different combos.

His sadism.png will bait you so much, just play safe once he has lvl 6

Just no.


With Shen, you have a really strong early game, this could go both ways.
Whoever kills each other more first, will most likely  win.

Just ask for ganks.

Why this isn't a pro guide Back to Top

I'm no pro Shen, but this guide was meant for starting players so they could get the idea of how to play Shen. I apologize if you were looking for a in depth guide. 


But I do hope that this guide helps you in some way. This will be updated every now and then.

But Eventually, this will become a pro guide. ;)
