In a sense, he's a more tanky, less dps-y version of Udyr. I think he's still best played as a tank, but you would ignore a lot of his potential if you don't use his synergy with damage dealing/healing thingy.

Shen is the best carry tank...besides, you know, Blitz and Nasus, who are much better.

Effective Health - Go look it up. At a certain armor/MR point (exact number is determined by DR), stacking health will always be better.

Thanks, Nanners.

P.S I know ninja tabi are ninja-y but they are quite rarely the best choice.
idk why shens even get warmogs... so expensive and not really that amazing on him

dorans aegis tabi/mercs frozen mallet is win... 3k health decent mitigation and most importantly its cost effective. lol @ warmogshen

I always go warmogs, boots, phage and aegis. I've never been melted by anyone, though I don't play in an elo where Annie walks around with 20 kills, either. In a decent elo without super fed carries, you can easily tank with just pumping hp.

It's incredibly easy to farm with Shen, so warmogs isn't an issue to buy. Every team needs an Aegis and it works well on Shen. If a game goes long enough you grab an Atmas and go to town on everyone.

I do use defensive build though, that could be why I have better survivability then a lot of people here claim to have. Most people seem to have a hard on for offensive tree despite going full tank.

Shen would be far more useful if he didn't have to channel his ult.
