Shen is a tank which is played mainly in toplane. Highly resilient, the ninja can turn a teamfight in his favor thanks to his resistances and his ultimate spell allowing him to Teleport on any ally on the Summoner's Rift. His skill set allows him to be a real pain in the ass for the enemy while your allies inflict damage.

In terms of his build, Shen is still a tank so he needs resistances. In this optics, opt for Plated Steelcaps and a Sunfire Aegis. The Titanic Hydra will be also to make in order to Decimate the minions more quickly. Finally, finish your build with a Randuin's Omen, a Spirit Visage and a Warmog's Armor to be intombable

However, the items can be changed depending on the game's progress and the composition of the opposing team.

Shen has many utility spells, but her strength comes from her resistance and mobility. His gameplay is centered around his blade which, with his Q, moves it and can inflict powerful auto-attacks on his enemies. In addition, her W allows her to create a zone where all attacks targeting Shen or her allies within the zone are blocked. His E will prove to be very useful as he can dash towards his enemies by provoking them. Finally, Shen's ultimate allows him to Teleport on any ally by giving them a shield. A devastating defensive weapon.

Despite his rather defensive spells, Shen remains a very good duelist, especially thanks to Grasp of the Undying. The mirror carapace, Second Wind and Overgrowth in the Resolve tree drastically increase the ninja's resistances. As a secondary rune, you can opt for Cheap Shot as well as Ultimate Hunter, which reduces Stand United (R)'s cooldown time. Finally, attack speed, adaptive force, and armor or magic resistance are the bonus stats to focus on.

Lore

Ally Tips

Keep an eye on allies and be ready to save them with your teleport.

Leverage your Energy to get a long-term advantage over Mana users.

Enemy Tips

Be ready to dodge Shen Runes's taunt and punish him if he misses.

Once Shen Runes reaches level 6, watch out for his global-range ultimate, which can turn fights quickly.

Among the secretive, Ionian warriors known as the Kinkou, Shen Runes serves as their leader, the Eye of Twilight. He longs to remain free from the confusion of emotion, prejudice, and ego, and walks the unseen path of dispassionate judgment between the spirit realm and the physical world. Tasked with enforcing the equilibrium between them, Shen Runes wields blades of steel and arcane energy against any who would threaten it.
