IntroductionShen is a Support Tank who can't really do damage. Don't worry if you can't do damage or get kills because the point of a Support is to get assists. Help your lane partner by taunting your opponent or pop in your ult when your teammate is in need.
MasteriesI use the mastery 1/21/8.
1 on Offense for stronger Exhaust.
21 on Defense for stronger armor.
8 on Utility for stronger Ghost.
Great Spell for Chasing or Running Away
Great Spell for Running Away
You can use flash instead of Exhaust, but your E Shadow dance works similar as flash so I take Ghost instead of Flash.

Great for early game fights, but gets useless at late game.

One of the most annoying ult for opponent. When your teammate is about to die, use your ult and then taunt them to let your teammate escape. You can also make a 1v1 fight into a 1v2 fight for your partner to win the fight.
(Make sure your not getting attacked by your opponent when you're using your ult.You can get killed before you are using your ult !!!)

Mid GameOn your first time back to your base buy , and 1 or 2 .

Late GameBy late game you should have
Late game you will have alot of hp and armor. You can start tanking the turrets or Baron.
If it becomes Very Late Game you can get and with if you have extra gold :)
Team FightsIn team fights keep taunting and your opponents and if you find one of your teammate dieing use your ult to save him.
