General information

shen Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Ki Barrier

P

Shen shields himself after completing an ability's effects. He also manifests a Spirit Blade that he controls with his abilities.

Twilight Assault

Q

Shen can recall his Spirit Blade to his location. Enemies hit are slowed when moving away from Shen and once it arrives it empowers his next 3 autos.

Spirit's Refuge

W

Shen creates an area around his Spirit Blade that blocks all enemy basic attacks.

Shadow Dash

E

Passive causes damage from Shadow Dash and Twilight Assault to recover energy. Active allows Shen to dash in a target direction dealing damage and taunting enemies hit.

Stand United

R

Shen channels and shields a target ally. He blinks to the ally's location at the end of the channel.

Basic Combos

Twilight Assault

E
Q
W
AA
AA
AA

Bread and butter trading combo. This trading combo ensures that you will take minimal damage when you E forward. You will trigger Shen's shield on E which negates initial damage, activating W to prevent and getting off your 3 empowered AA due to the increased attack speed.

Stand Strong

Q
AA
E
Q
W
AA

When you're engaged on by a champion kite back and use Q to get the empowered AA damage, turn to AA the enemy and then as they retreat use E and then Q again to be able to get 6 total empowered auto-attacks.

Quick tips to play Shen

Try to whittle down your opponent with short and effective trades based around your Passive and your

W.

In team fights, look to flank the enemy backline and aim to taunt as many champions as you can. Only do this if your team is there to follow up.

Use your

R proactively when you see your teammates going for 1v1’s. Keep a constant eye on the map for ganks and be prepared to pull the trigger if needed.
