I was able to play shen at the lower elos but now im 1700 and i can jungle him but recently i have been trouble playing him top early game unless i get a gank. Anybody have a good top lane guide i can look at or some suggestions for his early game for the overagressive top laners?

Ruby Crystal>Phage>Triforce
Phage again to frozen mallet
GA or FoN
Infinity Edge
Atmas.
Try in a custom game.
Boots depend on enemy comp (obviously)

I'll go ahead and explain why that's wrong

1: never get frozen mallet and trinity force, it pretty much waste an item slot because the passives don't stack.

2: infinity edge, really?
No wits end because ad is obviously better for proc'ing his passive right?

3: try in custom games doesn't mean that it'll work in a real game against real people.

1) Boots and 3 pots or armor and 3 pots
2) HoG ( now that it's going to be removed im cry) ---> Kage's Lucky Pick
3) Phage ----> Tri-force or Frozen mallet (don't get this it sucks)
4) Wit's End for attack speed and magic resist, synchronizes with passive.
5) Randuin's for armor
6) Ionic Spark and FoN ( they're removing these im cry )

hello Lagrod

Maybe the problem is creativity.

1 Play around with shen more as i dont think you are exploiting his skills. Attempt for feats or [personal achievements].

2 Also, unlike riven, shen has a half ranged ability (dagger throw), try to play with punishing overextenders ( maybe with rylai too). I dont know if lee sin is similar, but the game play is more like annie/kat ime.

3 Get friends and test out fun version of various roles out side of tank to give you more options/flexiblity.


hav fun
