let's skip the explaining and get right to the point.
What on earth do i need to do with shen,
I tried him as a tank, but only a 2 sec taunt without sideeffects just doesnt quite help in battle (only if they don't kill u in that time). if u equip him with some dmg items to combine tank and dmg u lack tank stats.
He just doesnt compete to other tanks
Tried him as dpser, Phantom dancers, some dmg items. etc he just doesnt have the right skills or dmg output to accualy compete with ANY other dpser.
AP build. dont get me started on that, ur ultra ninja trowing sword will do more dmg, and ur lifeleech wich doesnt help anyway since u dont have any melee stats at all with AP build (ap must be stupidly high to even make a difference)
So i tried the builds, maybe it was me? maybe i did something wrong...
1:I start the game off with a regrowth pendand and the taunt skill and shortly after the shield skill
2: after i tried to catch some dmg from the enemy(wich works well if there is not DOT dps on your lane) with my shield to prevent my teamm8 from getting abused, Worked.
3: Lateron in the game i tried taunting enemy's into fight with the charge skill and informing my teamm8 that i will taunt.
I did that by moving behind the enemy and charging TROUGH them so i dont get hit and my teamm8 can do whatever he pleases with the enemy, fine, but after 2 sec of amazing ninja taunt () i could only imput 100 dmg + 100-200 dmg uber ninja sword trow
So i start buying some dmg items, wich dont work out well anyway since u need HP to tank/survive your own taunt
4: fine, knowing im a support hero i start stacking some serieous hp and stuff, using my ulti and taunt to save teamm8's. but what happends now is what bothers me the most, i taunt.... the enemy start hitting my face... and accualy killing me within those 2 sec of taunt while having a nice set of defensive items and hp
5: fine, i cant tank people like other tanks can, i cant dps like other dpsers cant, i cant cast like the AP users can, i got a nice ulti to save teamm8's and can deliver some final blows taunting nearly dead people for my team wich i just helped with my ulti,.... yay...
What makes this hero better then playing ninja turtle rammus.... then playing pimpass twisted fate?
I cant see the point of this ninjalike tank hero at ALL
If u guys figured out a nice way of playing this Rejected ninja let me know,
closing this post with a little tear in the corner of my eye,
P.S dont let me down community! i want my 7 dollars to be well spend!
