Hello, I have recently started playing Shaco and I have a few questions. My regular build is:
Sapphire Crystal + 2 Pots
Sheen
Berserker's Boots
Sword of Occult
Infinity Edge

Then I'm stuck, I recently got owned by a Yi because I just couldn't keep up with his lifesteal, so I might get Blood Thirster, but Phantom Dancer looks really nice for a Shaco. Also, does Trinity Force crit? Since it makes my base attack 1.5 bigger, wouldn't my crits be 150% bigger?

shaco rely on his burst to get ahead of.

did you put a jitb down for the fear?
did you start from behind?

To deal with lifesteal you can:
1. executioner's edge
2. ignite
3. phantom dancer/dodge
4. thronmail <-- not adviced

Okay, I'll try that. I don't usually use JitB simply because it's hard to put them down without them getting instantly killed by others. I still need an answer to my sheen/trinity question though.

If you are playing shaco, you should have Exhaust and Ignite as sumonner spell, so Exhaust yi, he can't attack you and ignite if he's not dead after ignite.

And don't take sheen, it suck late game (100% of BASE dmg, without the item) so at lvl 18, it's just 100 for 1 attack and that amount can't crit, so it's All your dmg + 100

If I can give u a advice, get Brutalizer instead of sheen

And you don't use jack in the box for dps, but for the fear it gives

the damage added by trinity force DOES NOT crit

Here's how it works (IIRC! someone please correct me if i'm wrong)


Base Damage = 100
Crit Modifier = 2.5x (lets assume u have IE, no runes or w/e)


So your critical hit would be:
(100x2.5) + (100x1.5) = 400 damage

1st one being the critical hit, 2nd one being trinity forces bonus damage
