Hello all, I'd like some advice on building Shen. I understand that he's usually permabanned, but in the instances he is not banned, I usually manage to play him top or jungle (I'm primarily a jungler, but I'm playing top more and more). Usually I start boots+3 pot regardless of the lane matchup, sometimes cloth+5 if I'm against someone insanely early game aggressive, such as Riven or Olaf in some cases. My issue is what to build into for mid/late game. Usually I go something like heart of gold, first component of wits end, level 2 boots somewhere in there, get a giant's belt, finish wits end and randuins, finish warmogs, building situationally if I'm winning or losing my lane. Does that seem correct?

Sounds good to me. He likes HP first of all and then some attack speed, generally wits end is good. Personally I like a phage, you taunt in to them and keep them snared. I have heard some people go Rylai's to slow with Q to catch up. I guess either works. Usually:

Mercs
HOG--->Randuin's
Wit's End
Warmogs
Mallet
Situational Defensive Item ( FON, Aegis works if not on support, BV, etc )

or

Offensive Item ( Atmas, Ionic Spark for splitpushing Shen! )

If you're jungling I would rush the Wits before GB simply for clear times. It's an extremely strong item on Shen(and basically everyone, lol).

Merc treads then build 5 giants belts. Upgrade the belts into warmogs as time allows.
