Summoner Spells Back to Top

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

  • 9x
    +0.95 attack damage Greater Mark of Attack Damage
  • 9x
    +0.64% attack speed Greater Glyph of Attack Speed
  • 9x
    +0.76% attack speed Greater Seal of Attack Speed
  • 3x
    +1.5% movement speed Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
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.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with these. With dorans your early game is gonna be very strong, since you dont lose hp when getting your lvl 3. It also makes your dmg a lot higher what means that, you will most likely kill the enemy jungler in a 1v1. IMPORTANT: CHECK MASTERIES!!!
    :::::::::::::::::::: First base::::::::::::::::::: Try to get another doran and berserker's for better mobility and dmg.
    ::::::::::::::Option 2- Firstbase ::::::::: You can also go straight to pickaxe and berserker's if you are fed.
    First Buy #2 If you want to go for wriggles.

Core Items

    This is your core build. With this items you can R-A-P-E anyone that comes on your way. Very good for split pushing, and thats what your gonna do.
    ::::::::::::::::::Mid-game core:::::::::::::: Always try to get this build as fast as you can. It provides so much dmg and burst. The thing why you need to have this items by mid game is that your are gonna start split pushing, and with this build its not going to be a problem. +u can dual anyone.
    This item combination is great for assasinating. Its fun. Try it out!
    Mobility boots are good option, if you are ahead and you know you can successfully roam around the map and make some sick ganks.

Situational Items

    U can swap your guardian angel to some of these items, if u think that u need them. If you are facing some tanky champ while you try to splitpush i recommend going for blade for 100% sure. Youmuus for faster pushing, and scimitar for EX. against warwick.
    This is an interesting Item. I have tried it and i like it pretty much. If you're planning to get objectives, and farm passively you can get this. Once you get it evolved into feral flare, it starts to make quite a bit of dmg.

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.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

Hes passive is really annoying, combined with his jump and slow. Its almost impossible to kill him. Focus on ganking more

VS

Amumu

Easy

I love playing against amumu, since his earlygame is so bad, and he has no escape when you suprise him at his jungle. Always counterjungle amumu.

VS

Evelynn

Easy

Pretty similar type of jungler. She is very vulnerable and easy to kill in early game. Counter jungle her and she will become completely useless. She can be a very deadly champion now in season 4, so dont feed her.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

The champion i hate the most in league. He is not that bad problem to Shaco. If you go counter his other buff he will most likely be lvl 2 with his E and W, so you have a big chance to kill him.  In late game he is gonna be a beast, if you cant shut him early on. Always try to countergank him.

VS

Hecarim

Easy

This is a easy matchup for you. He cant duel you at any point of the game. You can counter jungle him with no fears. Your ganks are also much better.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Most likely you cant kill him in his jungle. Try to take his buffs if you got the chance for it. Focus on ganking more.

VS

Jax

Medium

He can be hard. Hes E is very annoying, and he deals tons of dmg once he hits lvl 6. He can be pretty hard to win in a 1v1 but it is possible if you can outplay him.

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

Ban. If you get against lee its gonna be hard. He has 2 stealth detection skills, which makes you MUCH more vulnerable. He will probably outdmg you depending on the situations. In lategame you will win the trades.

VS

Master Yi

Medium

Annoying is he gets fed. Your early game dmg is about the same, but your ganks are much better.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

His passive got buffed, so he is a bit better now, its hard to kill him because of his enormous CC, and shield. His ganks are so op is he can land his Q. 

VS

Nocturne

Hard

Counters shaco in many ways. If he lands a Q to you, the trail will follow you even when you use your Q, so they know where you go. And he can block your E with his spellshield. He will also deal very much dmg in 1v1, but in most of the times you can outdmg him.

VS

Rammus

Easy

His ganks are good, but he is very vulnerable to counterganking. Always try to countergank him. His clear is also pretty lame, so you can try to take his buffs. Dont go near him at late game, or you are gonna have to spend 3 seconds with him.

VS

Sejuani

Easy

Strong ganker, but not that good dualer. Counterjungle her and she will most likely become useless.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

Not that bad. Dont touch her jungle and you will be fine. Take your buffs on time, and try to gank.

VS

Udyr

Hard

Another pain in butt like lee. His dmg is so CRAZY, never try to kill him, or turret dive, or counter jungle, or do anything to him. Just joking. You can try to counter jungle him but when you face him at jungle. RUN.

VS

Volibear

Medium

He can be a very good dualer, but with your ignite it should be fine. He can gank pretty nice and he has a high burst with his W. Gank and counterjungle if you can.

VS

Warwick

Easy

VERY easy matchup. He deals 0 dmg in early game, his clear is bad, his ganks are bad. Make him go AFK.

Jungle Route(S4) Back to Top

The best jungle route for getting lvl 3 and your double buffs is: Blue-Wight-Red.

How to setup boxes?

1. Start stacking box_48.png to your bottom side buff at 0:56.

2. When You have put 4box_48.png  to your buff pit, it should spawn in about 4-5 seconds.


4. Use your smite immediatly to the buff, and take all the 3 monsters down.(Ask your laners for a little help.)

5. When you have successfully killed your buff, move to wraiths. Place a box_48.png behind the big wraith and start attacking it.

6. Run to your red and place a box_48.png in the back of the camp and start attacking the red. Take 1 hit from the buff and then deceive quickly. Let yourbox_48.png  take 1 hit, and then you should be able to smite it again.

IMPORTANT: You dont have to worry about using your smite to the first buff, it will be up for the other!

Hallucinate (R) Back to Top

What kind of stuff can you make with your ult?
This is usually the thing that divides a bad Shaco from a good Shaco. I think that Shacos ult is one of the most unique ultimates in the game, cause its used for so many things!


1. First of all, hes ult is very good on dueling, and thats what makes him 1 of the best dualers in the game. It causes disruption in your enemies, cause they wont realise which is the real one. Even if they do it takes time and every second in a dual, makes you closer to winning. It also does good dmg and your passive procs from it.

2.You can dodge almost anything with it from Karthus's R to Sion's stun. It makes a really big difference. EX: If you are against Annie. You can check if she has her stun up. If you attack her he will most likely throw her whole combo to you and u can dodge her stun with your Hallucinate(R), which makes her miss about half of her combo. That was just one example.

3.The third major thing that you can do with it is pushing. It makes pushing almost twice as fast as it would be without ult. So basically if 4 of your teammates are defending mid, while you are pushing top or bot, it means that You and your (R)=2 guys, are destroying the enemy base. 

There are many more things that you will figure out about his ult, while you are playing as him. ;)
