Shaco is an assassin champion. His abilities allow Shaco to surprise his opponents by causing crowd control with his crates and dealing a lot of damage to them. In addition, he has very strong ganks, being able to surprise his opponents and help his opponents. He can also take down epic monsters like the dragon quickly with the help of his ultimate ability. Typically, this champion is used in the wild.



Champion Description

“Created years ago as a toy for a lonely prince, Shaco, the enchanted puppet, now revels in murder and mayhem. Corrupted by dark magic and the loss of his beloved owner, the once-gentle puppet now finds pleasure only in the misery of the very souls he torments. He uses toys and simple tricks to achieve deadly effects, finding the results of his gory "games" hilarious. And for those who hear a dark laugh in the dead of night, the Demon Jester may have marked them as his next toy.”

Shaco's abilities

(Passive) Stab: Shaco's basic attacks and Two-edged Poison deal bonus damage when hitting the enemy from behind.

(Q) Deceive: Shaco becomes Invisible and teleports to the target location. Your first attack while Stealth is empowered, dealing additional and critical damage when hitting the enemy from behind.

(W) Surprise Box: Shaco creates a hidden Surprise Box. When activated, it will cause fear and attack nearby enemies.



(E) Double Edged Poison: Shaco's knives passively poison targets on hit, reducing their Movement Speed. He can throw them to deal damage and poison the target. The thrown knife deals additional damage if the target's Health is below 30%.

(R) Hallucinations: Shaco creates an illusion of himself next to him, which can attack nearby enemies (deals reduced damage to turrets). Upon death, it explodes, spawning three Surprise Boxes and dealing damage to all nearby enemies.

Shaco Tips and Tricks

  • You can use (Q) Deceive to cross obstacles.
  • Shaco can use (W) Surprise Box while stealthed. Placing a surprise box briefly reveals your location, but does not direct you.
  • The additional damage dealt by (Q) Deceive can deal critical hits.
  • The (Q) Deceive skill can allow you to dodge many spells.
  • Remember to hit enemies and monsters in the back to activate your passive.
  • When the Clone produced by (R) Hallucinations dies, it leaves a Triangle of Surprise Boxes around its position.
  • The clone's attacks apply the effects of the auto-attack and slow your enemy down if it hits you in the back.
