Well... its not quite that easy.

I think its more that Shen gets good use out of every part of Aegis. Its not like Amumu, who doesn't use the auto attack well, or Galio who's passive doesn't interact well with auras and who doesn't auto attack. Aegis is just a really good fit on Shen. If I had to make up an item that was perfectly designed for Shen, it would probably be Aegis or something very like it.

Depends what they have on their team. If you see its balanced between their physical dps and their mages, then by all means get an aegis. Otherwise get whatever would counter their main source of damage.

I pick up Aegis first on Rammus because it helps the team and the passive helps out Rammus' passive. After that everything I build is influenced by what the other team has team comp wise.

I'm thinking about starting to pick up heart of gold first though.

not really good on amumu/galio/rammus to be honest. a faster banshees/randuins/sunfire will be better

Did you really need to question them after this?

Thornmail is never a good first item. You want a combination of hp and armor as rammus, so Heart of Gold and Sunfire Cape are good options. Aegis is a great 2nd item to get after your first one, and basic boots (or even advanced boots if you like).

But it's not a MUST have every game. It's still a great item though.

You seriously have never met anyone that told you wards were a waste of money? Does manna rain from heaven at high elo too?

I consider Omen to be a core item for Rammus, so HoG is always first (to get that extra gold flowing). But there's nothing wrong with picking up an early Aegis.
