General information

Shen Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Ki Barrier

Shen_Passive
P

On completing an ability's effects, Shen will shield himself for an amount for 2.5 seconds. If the triggering ability managed to affect at least one champion, the cooldown of his Passive is reduced by 4-7 seconds.

Twilight Assault

ShenQ
Q

Calls his Spirit Blade to his location. Enemies that the blade collides with are slowed for the next couple of seconds while moving away from Shen. On arrival, Shen empowers his next 3 auto-attacks which gain bonus range and deal magic damage. This damage is increased if the Blade collided with an enemy champion and Shen also gains bonus attack speed while it is active.

Spirit's Refuge

ShenW
W

Primes his Spirit Blade and creates an area around it. If Shen or an allied champion enters the area, or after a delay of 2 seconds, the blade creates a zone around it for 1.75 seconds. This zone blocks all non-turret based auto-attacks to any allied champion in the area.

Shadow Dash

ShenE
E

Passive: Damage from this ability and Twilight Assault recovers energy. Active: Shen dashes in the target direction, dealing physical damage to all enemy champions and monsters in his path and taunting them for 1.5 seconds.

Stand United

ShenR
R

Shen channels for 3 seconds, shielding an allied champion. The shield increases based on the target's missing health. On completing the channel, Shen and his Spirit Blade blink to the target ally's location on the map. Shen also destroys any projectiles targeted at him at the time of completion.

Basic combos

Twilight Assault

ShenQ
Q
ShenW
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

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

Use your Stand UnitedR 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.
Try to whittle down your opponent with short and effective trades based around your Passive and Spirit's RefugeW.
Before using your Shadow DashE, check the minimap to see if the enemy Jungler is nearby. If they’re not nearby, try to bait out an ability before going in. If they’re nearby, do not use your Shadow DashE aggressively.
