What do ya'll reckon is optimal?

Energy Regen worth it? Health stacks or armors?

I'd most definitely stick to Energy Regen if affordable. Otherwise Dodge. Flat Armor for jungling (early game it helps against towers, but by endgame you should have enough armor for towers to be, tankable), armor/level is frowned upon, the EHP and damage+ (via passive) from Health Seals is virtually negligible.

I don't jungle with Shen, usually solo top. x]

Remember to get magic penetration marks, not armor pen. Hits Q and KI strike benefit from that, giving you a slight early game advantage if u duo lane bot which might lead to a lane kill.

Now why would I ever want offensive runes on Shen?

...

Mrpen-red
flat hp-yellow
CDR-blue
Flat hp- quint

This should give u 800 hp in the beginning of the game. With Mrpen, you should be able to do 200 damage to a squishy once you can shadow dash to them. (lvl 2)

The fact that he -gets- kills doesn't mean I should be burning slots on offensive runes when its not his forte. KSing with Vorpal isn't necessarily a "kill" in its own right now, is it?

Tanks get kills from time to time (except for Alistar).

actually shen at mid can get kills pretty easily. Starting off with 800 hp over squishy who barely reach 500 hp.

At lvl 5, with shadow dash+vorpal(spamming) then ki strike will deal around 200+ damage. Do the combo 2-3 times, ignite and they die. And if they try and gank other lanes, just ult to help them/.
