For More information, This Article on "Shaco Builds/Runes for Season 11" here:
âWhat follows is a breakdown of the information written in the sheet embedded above, picking up from where it left off. This article is written after feedbacks of the build in the relevant Shaco/League of Legends talk channelsâ Message Boards, Chat Rooms, Social Medias and Forumsâ have been noted, and testing of the build through my own gameplay and of a few other players belonging to a wide range of ranks has been done enough to be able to publish this article with confidence.
This build/path is an adaption of a classical build used in LoL seasons prior, taken into the new era of this game introduced by the item rework of Season 11, which has changed the meta build paths for many champions, including Shaco. Although the recent buffs/nerfs which change many parts of his kit have altered his playstyle (mainly his clear and the now-hated "Wraith camp" part of his gameplay in the Jungle, a topic we'll mention later on in this article), the z+.5z build and its Runes aims to restore some of the stability in what we are familiar with, by optimizing his build and playstyle the best it can. Should it be successful in doing so, Shaco will play similar to how he has always played.
Shaco Runes Build - Jungle (The Current Best & Reasons For)
For this build, and true for Shaco in most other cases, Hail of Blades is the optimal keystone Rune and, by taking HoB, the Domination tree minor Runesâ Choosing between Sudden Impact/Cheap Shot, Ravenous/Relentless Hunter, based on personal preference and game factors such as the amount of CC your team has, the starting buff, and whether or not your ADC scales into taking red buffâ synergising well with Shaco's kit for more damage, through his normal gameplay.
