Shaco Strengths & Weaknesses

He isn’t only a threat on a physical level, but the mental warfare he instills upon the enemy squishies allows Shaco to make multiple plays which other Champions can’t make. He can leave the lane and roam quite easily to get a cheese gank off (even if he is laning).

His Jack In The BoxW can allow him to disengage as well as surprise all-in champions easily. This also acts as a counter to carries who have dashes and rely on kiting to win fights.

His DeceiveQ allows him to get out of sticky situations with ease. When combined with his Ultimate HallucinateR, his enemy can be baited to attack the clone and CC the enemy team/champion that attacked it.


During the laning phase, he is very easy to abuse and poke down. He is best picked into tank champions.

If Shaco is behind, it will be very hard for him to get back into the game. Shaco relies on getting ahead to be useful in the later parts of the game.

Shaco can be hard to master. You need to avoid being super obvious with your plays, especially with your Ultimate HallucinateR otherwise, you’ll fool no one.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Shaco is Strong

Place your Jack In The BoxW boxes early on in the lane and inside the lane brushes. This way, you will be able to get a lot of poke damage off on careless enemies.

Roam a lot in this lane and see if you can help your Jungler and mid-laner out. This will annoy the enemy team and will tilt them massively.

Once you get your Ultimate HallucinateR, your roam frequency should increase drastically. Make sure that you use this power spike to the fullest.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Shaco is Average

Once you get some items, it is time to invade the enemy Jungle with your allies. See if you can get some picks here and there.

When taking neutral, objective fights, ensure that you place your Jack In The BoxW boxes near the Jungle entrances and one in the pit. This way, no one can attempt a surprise steal.

Your Ultimate HallucinateR will be extremely useful during team fights. Just make sure that you use it to zone off the enemy backline from the frontline. This way, you will gain a massive advantage during team fights.

Late game
25+ min
Shaco is Average

After going in with your Ultimate HallucinateR, be prepared to fall back and peel for your allies ith your Jack In The BoxW in late-game team fights.

Look for picks in the later stages of the game. If you can pick someone off, you should rotate to the Baron or Elder Dragon.

Keep a constant eye on which primary objective is spawning next and ensure you ward them half a minute in advance. Do not split, push or go on the opposite side of the map when a significant objective is up or about to spawn.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Shaco's level one is a decent time to set up his boxes around the lane and catch enemies off guard. Not many Supports will take Sweeper first, so he should have a gala time in the bot lane.

Level 6 is a massive power spike as he can now bait enemies and annoy them massively during fights. He can easily control it from out of vision and make enemies think that it is the real Shaco they are dealing with.

His first item will give him a massive damage boost and enable him to quickly burst down enemies. He can also get multiple kills while roaming around the map.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Getting 2 points in his Ultimate HallucinateR will make Shaco's dueling capacity skyrocket. He can easily hide somewhere and use his clone to heckle enemies and deal free damage to them.

His first ability will be maxed out at level 9. This makes it really hard for the enemy to catch him during all-ins, and Shaco will easily be able to deal a lot of damage without taking a lot back in return.

Shaco is really good at getting picks with the team during this phase of the game. He can easily set up death brushes and use his Jack In The BoxW to poke the enemies out before a neutral, objective fight.

Late game25+ min

On maxing his Ultimate HallucinateR, Shaco's ability to solo kill enemies will increase drastically. The AoE aspect of his Ultimate HallucinateR will prevent enemies from grouping out as well.

He will be dishing out a lot of poke damage during this phase of the game. He can burst down squishy targets as well by invading the enemy backline from the fog of war.

He will fall off during the late game, so he will want to use his early game lead to win the game quickly. He should use the neutral, objective fights to snowball his lead as those are the places where he can use his Ultimate HallucinateR most effectively.
