they took out the fun out of shen

hes really boring now imo
not enough damage to harass/dominate lane
basically reduced to ult/taunt bot

Thanks for the suggestions! I think I'm going to definitely spend the IP on him

I think, you need to build AP early on with shen now. Like, build towards that Rylai's earlier.

I've been thinking this every since they nerfed his the first two ranks of his ult. I would frequently ult teammates just to watch them die anyways in situations where I would have otherwise saved them and possibly gotten a counter gank. An extra 20 points of shield from a tome does wonders, not only for your ult, but for feint, and the extra damage/healing on your vorpal as well.

Anyone else have thoughts on building a bit of AP early on for Shen? I mean, it's not like your taunt lasts for a meaningful amount of time early-mid game anyways (I'm talking like levels 1-8 or so). I use it more as an interrupt or closer/escape ability.

he is still one of best tanks in LOL and on the ban list often
even you don't like to play him, buy him and learn how to counter him is important, too

Shen is still worth picking up even in ranked games because if you're 2nd to ban then you'll get first pick.
