I hope that AD and AP Shens running around will watch this and change up.


OMG AP SHEN IS SOOOO BAD.

Even if fed, his abilities do not compliment an AP build.

It's like alistar... as AP... to boost his heal?

Haha, "As we chase, my ninja instincts allow me to dodge Ezreal's ultimate." That was my favorite part.
Well done by the way, good video. I was thinking about giving Shen a try and now I have a better idea of how to go about it, thanks Phreak.

You've obviously never played against an allistar who can nuke your whole life.

his pulverize/headbutt/ are 1:1 ratio, and they have nice base dmg wants allistar gets the ball rolling he can nuke for 1k+ magic damage with those two skills as well as provide a really nice heal, and with his ult he can still initiate.

I find it odd that you actually use feint. I personally feel it's up there with plentiful bounty as far as useless skills go. If you think about it with 200 energy you can do:

1 taunt, 1 vorpal blade, and 2 feints at level 18. The 2 feints are not all that likely to block for their maximum amount, as there are a ton of weak hits mixed in with strong ones in a team fight situation. If you consider that using 2 vorpal blades instead of 2 feints will deal more damage than feint is likely to absorb, I think it becomes an obvious choice.

I barely even use feint once I'm level 18, and I certainly don't skill it before I have to.

Feint's only real purpose is for running away, and even then you must be careful lest you use too much energy and can't dash. You need to make feint restore its energy cost if it triggers from an attack. It will mean you're energy limited on your offensive moves, but your defensive one can be spammed to offer mitigation. This is needed, IMO, since shen has no built in mitigation otherwise.
