||Incoming shen QQ post. Shen is a ninja so he was my real first love in this game. oh boy i was heartbroken once i found out hes a tank and doesnt get all the kills ninja style. Nevermind start tanking then. Heres what a fight with shen looked like: Shadowdash in to taunt ppl, finish of runners with vorpal blade and feint when turrets get to fire at you.
This is what it feels for me now: taunt -> feint -> run around cluelessly. Seriously either i totally lost all skill i had with shen but i cant seem to get one single good game off.
What does his passive do? punish those who focus the tank?
What does his q do? laning tool?
what does his w do? hell yea what does it do?
and why the hell do i never have enough energy for anything. i mean comeon if you miss the dash even by one inch youre dead. i mean come on this is a skill that drains 55% of his ressource instantly. thats like charging ryze 2500 mana when he misses his q. i know you cant compare mana to fast regenerating energy. because you can buy a tear+clarity and never never never never have mana problems. but to regenerate one shadow dash it takes 10 seconds?!?!?!?!?!?
i think shen feels most rewarding when you save allies with your ult. but that and shadow dash are the only things i can feel. the rest is like atk spd. you know its there and does something but you couldnt care less.
Edit: pro argument:
Shadowdash vs bandage toss
short range vs long range
no damage vs good base + 1.0 scaling
short cc vs short cc
if it fails lose 50% of ressource and be out of position vs if it fails, use ult if in range or try again.
