Summoner Spells

11.png+14.png
These summoners are so good with Shaco. I always take them with him. Smite as always and ignite for very strong earlygame counter jungling and ganking.

11.png+3.png

You can go with this setup, if u dont like ignite for some reason. The reason why i dont go with these spells is that u dont need extra slow or dmg reduction.


+with red buff and your E's slow i see no point for going with exhaust. Ignite brings so much power to ganks.

Runes

Back to Top ▲
You must go with full offensive runes to be a successful Joker.

Glyphs: Attack speed. You need it for the earlygame domination.

Marks: Go with attack damage. More dmg overall, and a better burst to E.

Seals: You can either go with armor or attack speed. I always go with attack speed cause i dont lose any hp, when taking my double buffs.

Quintessences: Go with movement speed to move around the map faster, better ganking and for dominating both jungles.

Utility: 9
You can either go with 21-9-0 or 21-0-9.

The reason why i go with 21-0-9 is that, you get the increased movement speed+the increased buff duration. The movement speed combined with your runes is equal to a total of 5% which is so awesome. The other reason why i go with utility over defense is that you dont need any defensive masteries for shaco. The defensive stats from defense tree are IMO pretty useless for Shaco.
The thing that i love in utility tree is that you get the increased buff duration. With blue and red the increase is 30 seconds which makes a big difference. In 30 seconds you can make up to 2 successfull ganks.

Edit: I have tried the 21/9/0, i actually like it now. It is also viable, but i would still go with utility. Its up to you!





Go for this masteries , if you decide to start with dorans blade.(Inspired by Wikipro)

First point to W. Then to Q always. Even when clearing your second buff, its better to take Q, because of the mastery where you get your bonus attack speed after critting. Its also good if the buff starts to focus you, you can change its aggro to your box.
Start maxing your E right after, for better slow and better burst. Then W for increased fear duration.
I see no point in maxing your Q first or second anymore after all the nerfs it got.

Explanations about skills:

Backstab: Good passive that might be a little tricky. You dont have to think about it too much, because everytime some1 sees a shaco they run, what means that u do more dmg. Tip: place your boxes behind the jungle camps so you proc your passive.

Deceive: Your Q is your best friend when playing shaco. There is so much things that u can make use of your Q. If your Q is on cooldown u cant basicly do anything: chase, gank, counterjungle.
Tips: always save your Q until the target flashes, or u get in trouble, if u havent used it for charging in. A good shaco always survives when he has his Q up.

JITB: This skill is very awesome in early on. You can get your double buffs very easily with the right methods. You can also use your box as a 60s ward.
Tip: When you counter jungle, put boxes around the enemy jungle, so u can predict your enemies movement. Its also very good at dueling because of the fear.

Two-Shiv poison: Very good skill in shacos kit. Sloes the target for a nice amount, and makes good burst dmg.
Tip: Use your E to finish your targets, cause when u have your E on cd u wont slow him with your basics. Your passive also procs in your E, so it does more dmg when the target is not facing you.

Hallucinate: A very good ultimate. Check hallucinate section below.


Always lvl up your ult when possible.

Situational

There is no idea, for going to a off-tanky build. As shaco you wont be teamfighting that much, so if u decide to go for a tanky build, its a big MINUS in your potential. Your dualing power decreases as well as your splitpushing.

Haha, this looks good man!
I've got a question though, how do you carry on late-game, many junglers in my division (Gold) are going with tanky junglers.
Shaco arent that tanky late on the game, how do you go on with that?
Other than that, good guide, a thumb up from me :)

Thx mate!

Many people ask me that. I would say that its quite easy. Depends on your situation. In mid game if you are fed you can ask your team, and together push lanes. In mid game your really strong even on teamfights, so its nice. In late game i suggest you pushing side lanes, but u need to make sure to your team, that they wont fight until some1 comes to stop you. You can easily kill any1 that comes to stop your pushing, and then continue. Now the enemy team has to decide that will they come to stop you or will they stop your other team from pushing mid. When u have mastered shaco u can easily own people in 2v1 situations with your ult and ravenous! With shaco its really important to have a initiator/tank toplaner.

Thats the scenario that i face usually, and almost always it works for me.
Good luck on the fields of justice! :)

I've found that placing 3-4 boxes at Blue then going to wight with 1 box works better. Most people don't know how to leash for Shaco and this is much faster. You can still take wight fast (tank it) and with a machete start, you have the pots to heal up the damage.

Nice idea! I've seen it too. Its better to do it that way if you dont know what kind of pull, you will get from your team. You can also do it with dorans, because u get the one hp potion. When im playing, after i have taken blue and wight i got full hp for red buff, so i will be about at 80% hp when i have made my first clear.

Man wouldn't be viable using Crtitical chance runes? Probably you could use the seal ones, put some AS on marks and remove Movespeed quints to replace AD. Instead of the beserker's, Mobility boots. What you think?

Haven't tried that one yet. But i like the attack speed and damage runes, because Shacos clear speed is not so good and they help you very much. Crit chance could also be cool. I will try that later!

Good guide jw Could you add some video clips of how you start in the jungle, other routes to start if your invaded and beginner-advanced ganking strategies ?

One of the best guides ever read :D!! I really like this guide, and Ill train my shacoskills with this guide. But I have a question about the runes//masteries: maybe for new shaco players it will be hard to play without armor and mr, so maybe I wouldn't take as. Maybe normal armor seals and mr (scaling) glyphs, but I'm not sure.

Yes, You can replace seals with armor ones, but you can leave the attack speed glyphs there. They help you lifesteal with dorans and and helps you clear better. You dont really need MR in jungle. :)

Nice guide! I used to main shaco in s3 but the nerfs to his q and e made me stop playing him. I just tried out this build in this guide and i went 17-5 nice build!
I just have a hard time being consistent with shaco in the early game with dorans blade.
And which to build first BOTRK or ravenous hydra?
Thanks! - Quickscope

Yeah, it might be hard. If you feel uncomfortable with Dorans you can also start with machete and grab elder lizard or Wriggles.
And usually you should build ravenous first, and if you still think you need more lifesteal and stuff, you can later on go for Botrk.
