Shaco counter tips
Laning Against Shaco
At level 1, expect Shaco to have placed multiple boxes W around the lane. Wait for the minion wave to approach before walking to the lane. Do not hug the side of the lane at level 1 as it is likely he has placed boxes there.
Avoid standing towards the sides of the lane. It’s better to stand in the middle and follow the line the minions take so it’s impossible for any boxes W he has placed to attack you.
If Shaco is doing some funky stuff, it’s probably because he is baiting you into his boxes W! Don’t fall for it as you’ll always come worse off.
Strategy VS Shaco
If your team is grouped and you have no vision on Shaco, make sure you have a Sweeping Lens and vision surrounding you, so you will be alerted if Shaco tries to jump in and assassinate a carry.
Do not chase Shaco as he may be baiting you into running into his Boxes W or towards his team.
Shaco will try to assassinate squishy targets that are moving around the map alone. You can prevent this by playing as a team and by avoiding walking in unwarded areas if you don’t know where he has been.
Shaco Power Spikes
Shaco’s first major power spike is at level 6 when he unlocks his Ultimate R. His clone can be very sneaky, and it can deal a lot of damage if you fight 1v1.
At level 9, Shaco would’ve maxed his first ability. His ability to trade with you in the lane will increase and he will be a little more obnoxious.
When Shaco’s completed his first component item, his trading power in the lane will increase and he will be stronger in the 1v1. Unless you equal his damage, think twice before looking to fight him.
