Quick tips to play Shen

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

ShenW

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

ShenR

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.
