How's Jungle Shen?

#1EcchiBakaPosted 5/10/2013 8:22:08 AM
I wanted to add him to my list of support/utility junglers (although he is banned often, but I'd still like to try him). Is his jungle even viable?

If so, what's the basics? What to max first, typical item path, runes/masteries, etc.

His jungle is ok. It's somewhat slow. Never really tried it or know what he builds.

Don't jungle Shen? He's best at top split pushing and R when needed.

Spoiler is plot element, not your ignorance.

It doesn't matter how good he is top.
all that matters is how good he is at jungling.

I've done it a couple times. His clears are really slow, especially the first one. If you want to play Shen to his full potential from the jungle he needs to cover lanes early whenever possible and farm it up during the mid game when his ult is up. He needs to become that split pusher for late game.

Actually it does. He can ult anyone across the whole map and then teleport back top and keep the tower alive for ages. If you take him in the jungle you eliminate that unique thing about Shen. His jungle is slow and about all he can do is counter gank with his ult. Shen's counter gank is strong for sure but relying on a huge cooldown for just key teamfights isn't as good as some of the high pressure junglers you could be running.

1. Look, this topic is about jungle Shen. Not top Shen. Everyone knows wtf top Shen does. In some cases, you are considering a goddamn jungle Shen. Period.

2. Jungle Shen can still walk in and taunt for ganks before 6.

3. The recommendation to leech lane XP is rather good. I would recommend that you pressure a lane early with a taunt, then sit in the lane for a short bit and leech some XP to help accelerate your levels.
