What is Shaco supposed to do now?

He used to be one of my teams biggest annoyances. But for some reason Shaco just doesn't seem scary anymore...

Did the new jungle wreck him? or am I just seeing things?

New jungle puts him behind for doing his job(ganking).

Also new items others can get

I actually wanted to try shaco as a support, if the jungler role was already filled. Wonder if it can work~

Honestly with proper box placement I never felt behind at all as shaco in the games I have played as him. I generally just rush both of my buffs right away and gank right off the bat or go to counterjungle from there. I think shaco if anything does not get behind in ganking compared to last season like the other junglers at all.

Shaco is worse than garbage now. He was garbage before, now he's worse.

-He loses more health in the jungle, can't gank as much.

-Very vulnerable to counter-jungling from tanky junglers.

-Not enough benefit from ganking compared to jungling / counter jungling.



The only thing shaco is good for is at low Elo, you can get a big kill lead and make the enemy team surrender, because they dont realize they're ahead on levels/gold and the kills dont matter.

Is Shaco now even worse than Eve ever was? (for those who thought Eve was bad back than)

I dunno what exactly you're doing, then. The times I've tried jungle Shaco I barely even needed my pots.

And I have no idea what I'm doing with him short of "JitB = Gud"
