So I play shen a lot, and I pick improved fortify and improved teleport for my spells, are these good choices? I figured it was only logical, since shen is the global tank, to grab the two global defensive spells, but haven't seen any shens pick these lately.

teleport isn't bad for Shen. However, I tend to utilize Exhaust and Ghost. I don't think Fortify is a very good option in general.

Shen can honestly get away with almost any summoner spells, because he can jump most walls with his dash.

Ghost is a popular pick on him, as for the other, many take Exhaust, so when they ult their teammate they can not only turn the fight into a 2v1 or w/e but they can also exhaust the enemy and perhaps completely turn the tables.

I personally tend to run Clairvoyance and Ghost, just because I think CV is amazing and every team should have one (until it gets nerfed, then we'll see).

I personally run different spells based on the team opposition, if we're in ranked, otherwise I usually try working it in with the team composition. The summoner spells I've personally used on him are:

- Teleport
- Ghost
- Exhaust
- Smite (for jungling)
- CV (Only if I think I can get away with it).

Fortify isn't actually a terrible spell on him. As a tank, it's your job to protect your team. Midgame, one of your teammates is being tower dived, Ult + Fortify + Taunt can be pretty darn effective.

Exhaust is pretty much mandatory on him I think. It facilitates your teammates killing, and keeps them alive longer. Ignite is particularly useful because as a tank, you tend to be one of the last ones alive in a fight, and ignite can help with a cleanup.

Teleport is overkill on him, in my experience, unless you're building to split push HARD (aegis, sunfire).

Exhaust is a must. even if you have 4 of them already, I'd say. Its good for slowing for a kills and for nerfing a champion you didnt catch with taunt.or even did catch with taunt but is so farmed they would kill even the tankiest of champs in seconds.

Ive always picked ghost for my other spell...But improved ignite would also be good.. in fact I think I will start using that if I ever play shen again.

Interesting idea for the CV. I love CV as well, but I've never considered taking it with Shen cause I'm defense specced. I tend to want full 21 utility if I take CV.
