Shen's heal was his worst skill. Unless you were building AP, it was useless to yourself. You could probably count the number of games Shen's heal had a game-changing role on one hand. When I played shen I was ending games around 3.5k hp, healing for 75 over time didn't help me at all. I suppose if your entire team built Spirit Visages, it wouldn't be bad, though. I always got Force of Nature as Shen, which healed me more per second than Blade ever did.

It's just useful for being thar. I've had countless close calls with other champions because of 30-50 health from a simple attack with lifesteal or spell with spell vamp.

Lol at this ^ you do realize that at max rank as to which you get the 75 hp from each hit. your silly idea of you AND your teammate hitting that are very nil. You cast it and hit the minion and its dead period. Your teammate does not benefit from it unless its on a hero btw. that would be the only case to which it would be "OP" as people are complaining.


It's not really that bad, because if you actually read up on Shen on the site and calculate, you'll see that no only does Vorpal Blade life tap the target to heal any champion that atks it by 75 per hit, but the amount per hit is increase by 20% of that chapmions ability power. So if your saying the champion has 300 ability power, thats an additional 60 per hit. Take that and you have 135 per hit and if your champion has close to max atk speed, thats roughly 6-8 atks by the time its over. So you just healed 810-1080 HP.

If it doesn't then they must have put a serious typo on the website XD because i use calculations like this all the time and they work.

Really? let me see you get a 300 AP character with even close to max attack speed lol because even with bezerkers greaves nashors tooth trinity force madreds sword of the divine and zhonyas ring. thats 2.1 atk speed (still short) and only 256 ap (also short) and if you have yet to win the game and have been able to attain this i assure you that healing will be trash and you will most likely be one shotted on whatever squishy you would even be attempting this on

i never said it would be easy. Also, it would be better to try this on a 5vs5.
