General info

This comp uses the the Dark Star synergy in order to beef up Shaco so he can 1 shot enemy units. Getting Shaco 3 will be ideal for this comp as he will be your main carry and will need 3 star to compete in the late game.

When to make

Try to get a good dark star opener or look for early Shacos. With less gold income in set 3, forcing comps will not be as easy. You also need a good amount of B.F. Swords for ideal Shaco items.

Game plan
Early game

Jarvan and Mordekaiser make for a solid frontline, and Caitlyn provides decent early game damage.

Mid game

In the midgame, you are just trying to transition into 6 Dark Stars. If you can't find all 6, make use of your other synergies like protector or vanguard to fill your team.

Additional comp tips
  • Shaco is very similar to Kha'Zix from set 2, but he comes in a 3 star package.
  • Additional items can be used on whatever you deem necessary. Itemization can be quite difficult in set 3 with very random carousels, but try your best to balance early game pressure and late game viability.
