Can anybody with recent Shen experience help me decide what type of runes Shen needs to run?
I solo top and duo bot if there's no support.
I solo top more than duo bot.

I tried solo mid and they all said this:
Magic pen reds
Hp/Level yellows
Flat mr blues
Flat health quints

This is what I usually run, and do fine with:
3x Alacrity red
6x Physical dmg red
9x Flat armor yellows
9x Flat mr blues
3x Flat damage quints

Some of my Shen games with these runes:
5/8/33
5/12/34
4/8/35
12/3/13

I was thinking of swapping out to 9x Alacrity reds

Tl;dr: What runes do you run on Shen and why

Ap Shen is surprisingly underrated...But he seems to fall off end game besides his ult for me. Maybe I haven't played him enough.

Anyways, bruiser Shen is pretty much top tier because of the fact that his ult lets him split push and when combined with the fact he's manaless he's pretty much unstoppable in lane. Build your rune set around whatever your idea of how Shen should be played is.

So for bruiser Shen...What I do

Armor Yellows
MR Blues
Armor Pen, AS, or Crit Chance Reds
MS, AD, or Regen Quints.

Bolded is what I usually use.
0/21/9 (For energy.)

My build (Remember to change with situation.)
Dorans-->Mercs-->Warmogs-->Atmas-->Wits-->Sunfire-->Bloodthirster-->Elixirs.

Ghost/Exhaust.

Split Push or Jungle, Ult in, Taunt, Vorpal, Feint, exhaust, ghost, Vorpal. With your E and Ghost they wont get away unless their Kassadin.

mpen reds
flat armor yellows
flat/plvl MR blues
hp quints

I have tried hp/ level runes and had pretty mixed results. HP/lvl works against an AP top, but if you're going up against someone top who has any armor reduction, it wont mater how much hp you have, they will be dealing pretty much true dmg without some armor.

Just remember, there are no set builds, it all depends on who you are facing in lane.
