i have a couple questions why don't you run 1 seal as AD to get to +16 to start from runes. Also when i play Shaco it seems that people on the other team seem to be wary and that my team will in fact be the team pushing how do you get around this?

How do you feel while backdooring the enemy team?. Do you like to make the games boring?

+15 vs +16 not that much difference, I like the armor. 1 seal either way won't make a giant change anyway haha. And most of the time there is always 1 lane that has a gank opportunity. Even if you waste a flash -- MISSION SUCCESSFUL.

Keep talking! Sharing this knowledge and inspiring folks to play an (imo) underplayed champ is awesome! It can only add to the collective awesome that you're now a part of. =)

I'm in the same boat as you mentioned before, though, with having had shaco for a while and never really doing well with him. I don't play him ranked for that reason (I barely play ranked at all, really).

Any tips to approach, and then kick the **** outta that tipping point? Thus far I'm seeing: practice your sneaky sneeks... don't blow E till you need to... and make your team FEEL THE LOVE.

In any case, thanks for this. I've learned a lot already and can't wait for the rest!

Hey bud,

It's good to see someone else who's as enthusiastic about Shaco. He is literally the only champion I play.
Tell me what you think about my setup right here.

1) Runes; a page with Yellow + Blue AS, AD reds, 3 MS quints
or
6% lifesteal, Armor Yellows, Blue MRs, Red Flat AD

2) I max out movement speed mastery in the utility tree, 21/0/9

3) Builds:
Hard AD: Wriggle > Mobs > IE > Triforce > 2x Phantoms
Utility: Wriggle > Zerks > Bloodrazor > Malady > Wit's > BCleaver
MR Bruiser: Wriggles > Mercs > Hex > Wit's > Maw > Triforce > GA

4) Starting Items and jungle route.
1 Longsword + Soda,
Blue, box stack starts at 1:00 at Golem's 7 o Clock
Decieve to enemy red over Dragon/Baron wall, Stack 2 boxes in bush, smite red, decieve + backstab.
Run into Bush at Lizard's 6 o clock
** (Stand one pixel outside of bush, you'll be able to see the little wraith to see if it's attacking the enemy jungler while still being considered ''In bush'')
Decieve in, drop box over wall in case of a flash, backstab (once I start getting really damaged, exhaust)
Firstblood.

Tell me what you think of this playstyle.
Criticism is appreciated.

As for his ultimate, I always get it at 6,11,16. Your clone gets better damage reduction, % of your damage, and the blowup damage. I don't really see why you wouldn't want to level it more.

Probably because I played lane AP shaco. Level 1 FB at bottom brush every game too strong.

Let's talk about your play-style. When you go to gank a lane, do you do a lot of lane ganks? Q into the brush and gank from behind? Or do you try to save Q for someone who may get away? Do you E right as you gank, or save it for a ranged slow? Do you Q in and throw a box down? When do you use boxes? How do you place them to make the most out of them? What is your skill order in the jungle?


Also, again, I play the tankyer champions in the jungle, ones who should be giving kills, not taking them. Is Shaco different, in that he wants kills just as much as the lane?
