Shaco Strengths & Weaknesses

He isn’t only a threat on a physical level, but the mental warfare he instills upon the enemy squishies allows Shaco to make multiple plays which other Champions can’t make. He can leave the lane and roam quite easily to get a cheese gank off (even if he is laning).

His Jack In The BoxW can allow him to disengage as well as surprise all-in champions easily. This also acts as a counter to carries who have dashes and rely on kiting to win fights.

His DeceiveQ allows him to get out of sticky situations with ease. When combined with his Ultimate HallucinateR, his enemy can be baited to attack the clone and CC the enemy team/champion that attacked it.


Falls off like a truck if the game goes on for too long. During the late game, champions start building defensive items which don’t allow Shaco to immediately assassinate someone.

He is quite squishy, and is quite prone to getting killed if CC’d when his Ultimate HallucinateR is down. He will need to play around this ability in order to succeed.

Not a good pick against tanks as it would involve him changing his build and going up close and personal to those tanks. This is not very ideal, especially against experienced players.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Shaco is Average

You are really good at securing objectives in the early game. Look to secure objectives whenever they’re up.

Find a healthy balance between ganking your allies, farming your jungle and securing objectives. Make sure you do not fall behind in XP by trying to constantly gank.

Look to repeatedly gank lanes that are over extended or Flashless. Your champion is very good at repeatedly ganking lanes over and over again.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Shaco is Strong

Continue to pick up and secure jungle camps whenever possible. Not falling behind in the mid-game is crucial as a Jungler, so make sure you continue to farm!

As you’re a Jungler, you need to try and secure every Drake during the mid-game. Getting them and securing the Dragon Soul for your team will increase your chances of winning the game.

Look for picks with your team. If you can pick someone off, make the call for Baron or Dragon to further your lead.

Late game
25+ min
Shaco is Average

After going in with your Ultimate HallucinateR, be prepared to fall back and peel for your allies in late game team fights.

Look for picks in the later stages of the game. If you can pick someone off, you should be able to rotate to the Baron or Elder Dragon.

Keep a constant eye on which major objective is spawning next. Do not split push or go on the opposite side of the map when a major objective is up or about to spawn.

Power Spikes
Early game

His Ignite should help him immensely during the early game. Combined with hisDeceiveQ, he should be able to cause mayhem.

Shaco's Jack In The BoxW will not only help him wave clear, but a well placed Jack In The BoxW can allow him to escape from near-death situations.

Getting his Ultimate HallucinateR is a massive power spike as his ability to dive low health enemies and take towers increases significantly.

Mid game

He is the strongest during this phase of the game. He should keep ganking overextended laners and try to finish the game quickly.

When doing objectives, his Jack In The BoxW should help immensely with zoning enemies off the objective. His DeceiveQ can even allow him to steal the objective if he is behind the objective pit.

He should focus on killing squishy carries and finding picks. This will empower him and will allow him to take over the game singlehandedly.

Late game

Shaco may fall off during this phase of the game, so it is vital to use the early game well and get yourself way ahead of everyone.

His Jack In The BoxW should hurt a lot during this phase of the game. Placing it in common jungle entrances should allow him to find a pick.

Shaco's Ultimate HallucinateR should help him a lot now. It has a very short cooldown, and Shaco can just DeceiveQ onto someone, activate his Ultimate HallucinateR, and blow the enemy up.
