Shaco Build

Table of Contents

  • Abilities

    The 25% to 20% nerf is great, and you have to use bether your brain before ganks, maybe 1 more hit is needed

    The 5.0 sec to 4.0 sec and now the 3.5 secs time stelthed is a big nerf,but with some skill you use it bether for ganks but maybe you fail scapes. Time to master the velocity.

    Jack In The Box
    Use ir quick before a gank in a advanced and possible escape route of a champion, use it to map control but care for your mana and use ir in the middle of a battle in a place it ll not be vanished with so many dmg in the air

    Two-Shiv Poison
    No blind means don t go for an auto atack champion withot your clone! unless you are fed.

    i still think shaco need a bether ultimate, RIOT change this to +40%, 60%, 80% backstab dmg, and rework the passive, all problems with shaco will be solved. No solo baron, no backdoor, adn if RIOT is going to do something like this don t forget to bring the other skills like it was in BETA.

  • Start

    Well, another nerf thank RIOT god for that, because now maybe you can play Shaco in Ranked Games, and with this guide i give you a good view of how to start.
    For now i have two possible builds for shaco own, the classic from The New Sayan with some modifications and another that i tested some times that ll receive the name of Small Sayan.

  • Masteries + Runes

    The Two builds use the same masteries and spells

    The New Old Sayan Runes = All atack speed ( 38% )

    Greater Seal of Alacrity

    The Small Sayan Runes = 19% atk Spd + 22 Armor Pen

    9x Greater Glyph of Alacrity
    9x Greater Seal of Alacrity
    9x Greater Mark of Desolation
    2 x Greater Quintessence of Alacrity
    1 x Greater Quintessence of Desolation

  • Before Game

    Load screen: Take a pencil and note summoner spells of yoour enemies. Take Care of all summoner spells:

    Smite: depending of the enemy champ he can be a sure jungler and you can search him in the forest

    [spell=clayvoiance]: can reveal you in the jungle and your pre ganks so raise your atetion for any sound.

    Flash Heal Ghost Exhaust: take care to early ganks against these spells you can ruin it so do the math before each fight.

  • Skilling Order

  • Items

    Now we will see the most important part of the guide.

    The New OLD Sayan Setup.

    You will start with Long Sword and a Mana Potion. Play in jungle and gaking, just go to lane if you can push a tower. To survive in jungle you just need to finish the Madred's Razors and a Vampiric Scepter and you can jungle all neutrals less baron.

    After your Vampiric Scepter get the Sorcerer's Shoes, then rush your [item=Madred's Bloodrazor] in any order. Now we need to choose well the next itens because Guardian Angel got nerfed in Shaco, Aegis of the Legion got nerfed in Shaco Too, so lets see what we can use

    Banshee's Veil is the greatest survival item for shaco by now, clone will receive the spell shield.

    Sunfire Cape is the evil item because clone burn too, make 1 or 2 depending of enemy comp, this item is good for the build because of the magic pen itens too like sorc shoes and guise.

    Guardian Angel is still a great item and if made after a sunfire is great too, some times is bether than Banshee's Veil.

    The other cheap one is Thornmail, feel free to imagine what this can do

    After you get 2 survival itens or maybe before just to solo baron you can buy another item to help like a buff to your Vampiric Scepter, my sugestions = another Vampiric Scepter, Executioner's Calling or [item=Emblem of Valour] or if rich The Bloodthirster.

    So after the 2 survival key itens you need raise your dmg a little bit, so you can sell your Vampiric Scepter or upgrade it to The Bloodthirster, but the best option is to buy the Haunting Guise and Wit's End if enemy has mana or another Sunfire Cape.

  • The Small Sayan Items

    We start like the old new sayan with the jungle and gaking option so:

    Long Sword and a Mana Potion

    Next the especial Boots of Speed

    Now we buy the greatest itens of all time Wriggle's Lantern , you ll jungle super fast and get some more map control with the ward that can grant you some kill even more if have a jungler in the other team.

    After the lantern we evolve our Boots of Speed to Berserker's Greaves and then we buy the awesome Last Whisper, yes we are super killers now but still very fragille. So time for survival.

    The most commom Guardian Angel or Banshee's Veil or both, note that Guardian give you the otion to solo baron easier.

    Now we are very hard to be killed but our dmg by the time is small so time to increase it, how you ask! Simple buy ATK SPD or AD itens, i ll make the new item free for choice but remember you have only 2 or 1 slot for it depending of your suvival.

    The strongest but expensive Infinity Edge
    The Anti Tower and Killer too Sword of the Divine
    The Anti Tanker The Black Cleaver
    The Area rape 2x [item=Tiamat], make you excelent pusher too, and is good if your team is loosing
    The Anti Towe and TAnk = Youmuu's Ghostblade

    So my usual Smal sayan is this:


    But you can use this:


    Or This:


  • All in the mix Build

    Ha the great Build comes now.

    Wriggle's Lantern + Berserker's Greaves + [item=Madred's Bloodrazor] + Guardian Angel + Banshee's Veil + Last Whisper in this ordem and is GG :)


    My best build to you.

  • Creep Jungling

    Don t forget that is mana pot not health

    Go gank back base, sucess in kill = Madred's Razors, fail ll make your jungle harder but place boxes and kill what you need , for more pratice use pratice games.

  • Solo Nashor

    I will keep the solo Nashor video here, sice i think is sure possible to keep soloing it the same way as before.
