Which Champion would blue benefit the most.AP Twisted Fate, or tank support Shen?

I would say it depends on how the game's going. If shen is having to constantly ulti to save people, he may want it for cds. It also depends on how early / late in the game you are.

Honestly, TF and Shen are those champions that don't really need blue much anyway.

depends on the cooldown of a champion and the dps they make out of it tbh or the impact their skills have on the team in team v team situations. Ryze for instance is a champion i play often, he can be quite dependable on the blue buff, especially since he runs through mana quickly and is better if he has CDR as much as possible as to really be able to spam them skills as quick as possible. its a champion that works on the principles of CDR

Sounds like an argument arose over a game...


The first and possibly second blue should go to shen for the early game xp/gold. After that, it should be primarily going to the AP caster unless the ap caster is horrid and dies regularly....

First. Period. TF can live without blue, but he's far more potent with it.

This is something I see come up a lot, and the answer is almost always your mid laner. The only exceptions are a hero like Akali.

well the idea is that the mid laner can easily access the blue buff anyway, it is closest to him/her. So when the jungle needs to deliver the blue buff, its just a short run away, doesn't interfere with early game tactics

No no, you're assuming that the TF is actually potent. Sometimes there are those teammates that take a buff then die soon after not only wasting it but buffing the other team. The only reason it could actually be more beneficial for Shen is if TF dies regularly (and the shen does not).

Performance wise, Shen doesn't make good enough use of the energy boost and the cd redux would only be significant for the alt but still not a whole lot.

If the TF is playing solid, and its not the first blue (1:55) of the match, by all means TF would get far more use.

I'm not talking about player skill.

Exactly my point, the only reason there should be a question on this at all is if the TF is a liability. He gets far more benefit from it, and unless its the first one in the jungle route, how else could you justify a shen getting it over TF =P
