I go lantern > zerker boots > brutalizer > shiv > ghostblade > SoTD > GA
The first 3 items are good for running around ganking, shiv is good for pushing out lanes and required if I need to backdoor, then later in the game ghostblade + SoTD lets me Q into a teamfight and instakill the ADC or APC (I die too, but who cares, I'm Shaco). --- Steam: Calimar777 XBL: Calimar
Shaco basically provides nothing in team fights because of his squishiness. The only good thing about about him is his ability to stealth gib the carry, and maybe use his clone and boxes, so shiv is good for his initial attack. --- Jesus promised the end of all wicked people. Odin promised the end of all ice giants. I don't see many ice giants around. - ff12and3rocks

Initial burst damage with Q and E: Shiv: 440 - - raw 330 phys/ 352 magic Bloodthirster: 610 - - raw 550 phys/392 magic Cleaver: 514 - - raw 440 phys/ 302 magic
They're not quite dead, and/or you're in a teamfight, targeting the carry, so chase 'em down!
Bloodthirster 4 auto attacks: (total 800) 1200 phys damage Cleaver 4 auto attacks: (remember, your blink comes back 1.1 seconds faster with this item, but we'll exclude that for now.) (total 607) 800 phys damage, and the cleaver procs. YAY MATH. (146+149+153+157) Shiv 6 auto attacks and another proc, since you move and attack faster (even though it's only 40% attack speed and not 50%, and that 50% is further mitigated by the presence of other IAS items, we'll give benefit of the doubt here): (total 666) 900 phys, 100 mag
Total damage after a few seconds of attacking: Shiv: 1106 (440 mentioned above, plus 666 here) Bloodthirster: 1410 (610 mentioned above, plus the 800 here) Cleaver: 1121 (514 mentioned above, plus the 617 here), AND your Q/E are both ready faster than in both of the above cases. --- Do people actually read these words?
