Tips Against Shen in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “One of the harder tanks for Urgot to deal with since his W blocks your W, with that being said as long as you play around shens Q I don't think this matchup is too hard, just don't eat his auto attacks when he has Q active because that's his main source of damage, just turn off your W when he has his W on and you can also try to fling him out of the circle or just fling him to buy time, you can use your E to cancel his R teleport if he ever uses it near you, if you can't get in range then I recommend throwing your ultimate on him so he is slowed upon arrival, you can also match his ultimate with a teleport of your own or just try to trade lots of turret platings, make sure you're pushing when he makes teleport plays, also pushing him in can also make it harder for him to get off those teleport plays because he will have to worry about losing more resources for himself. Cull is a nice early buy in this matchup, once you get black cleaver + death's dance you outscale him extremely hard.”

PH45 says “Shen deals a lot of damage with his Q so be careful about tanking too many hits from him. Also pay attention to his swords position as if he draws it through you he will deal more damage to you with his Q autos. Generally you want to E just before he taunts you so he doesn't get free damage on you. After 6 he will ult to other lanes and pressure in that way so either be ready to cancel his ult with your E or be ready to TP to help your team or if your TP is down the force down towers top and warn your team.”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE, HARD GAME. TAKE EARLY DSHIELD TO COUNTER ACT HIS LEVEL 1 PASSIVE AA DAMAGE. DON’T STAND BETWEEN HIM AND HIS SWORD. DON’T EAT HIS PASSIVE AUTOS FOR FREE. DON’T WASTE YOUR W ON HIM, WHEN HE IS BLOCKING AUTOS. FREEZE MOST OF THE TIME. SHOVE WHEN HE IS ABOUT TO TP. DO NOT LET HIM TP TO HIS TEAM. E HIM. DON’T FIGHT HIM UNDER HIS TURRET. CONQUEROR IS VERY GOOD. Shen is not too difficult to fight per se. The difficulty in dealing with Shen comes in trying to outdo him, as his ultimate gives him a crazy amount of presence everywhere. Try not to fight Shen in a massive enemy wave as if you get taunted then, you are most likely dead. If you get taunted under enemy turret then you are also dead. Shen is great at setting up ganks, and escaping them. His zone of blocking around his sword does not block your Q or your Ultimate. Try not to stand between him and his sword, as that way, he will have the attack speed to outtrade you with his empowered auto attacks. You can take an early D shield in order to counter act the damage of his auto attacks. Wave control and map awareness are the key to figuring out this lane. You mostly want to keep the wave frozen in your side of the lane most of the time, so that if he walks up, he is putting himself at risk of you killing him. This way, you should easily build a solid gold lead off of minions. IF you know that the enemy jungler is about to gank a different lane, OR a decisive fight is about to happen Botlane or Midlane, then you should be looking to shove him in so that he cannot teleport freely. If he is backing off, know that he might be trying to use his ultimate so be ready to E him and then back off/fight him depending on whether you can kill him. Be mindful of where the jungler is by the way. If the Shen is teleporting to a fight that the jungler isn’t involved in/isn't GOING to be involved in, try not to do much more than just cancelling his teleport as you could die to a 2v1.”
Drake6401 says “More of a game threat than laning phase threat. Shen also gets very tanky for no real reason so keeping a lead can be difficult. You can never shut him down because of how easily he can just leave lane. His W is the biggest concern to advise as he can completely block your W with it. Your stun will easily break his shield since his first ability procs it. Not screwing up your W is important as usual here. In team fights, typically just avoid him and target champions not protected by his W's safe zone. This means you cannot be the front liner of your fights and must work around him to reach your actual targets. He may use his ultimate to save them which your W breaks but it is unlikely that you will not have used it by then. If he uses it and your W is down, you may have to cut your losses and back off that target for now.”

Olaf Only says “Easy after lvl 6. Don't go too close to his minonwave as he can E you for extra minion damage. Wait for his Passive shield to fade before trading. Difficult to kill if he has his W active. Look to freeze after lvl 6 and kill/deny farm”

Stinkee says “For a tank, Shen does very high damage, almost like a bruiser. If he's good, he'll use his Q right as his passive and Grasp are up to win short trades and slowly chip away at your health. Be aware of where his blade is, don't let him Q the blade through you as it will slow you and give him a lot more damage. When he's level 6, you need to shove minions to his tower nonstop, forcing him to miss a lot of minions if he wants to ult somewhere else. If you see him ulting, you can easily cancel it with your ult or your Q. Just be careful though, don't ult him if you're low as he'll just taunt you and kill you. He does counter your passive very hard with his W, just blocking all of your autos but this is not a huge deal as Sion passive isn't that useful in most situations anyways.”
MythicMike says “Dodge his taunt and the trade should be yours since his W won't block your Q's but it will block your passive so watch out for that. There's never a point where shen should be able to ult in lane since you can easily cancel him. ”

Quinncidence says “Vs really good Shen players, Yorick is not allowed to farm for the first 5 levels. But most Shens plays it bad so they will be kind enough to let you farm. After 6 Yorick wins lane, push lane and farm jungle camps and become a unstoppable splitpush monster.”

Anoying bro5 says “Wait till lvl2. Riposte his first Q auto attack with Grasp proc. This is his core damage. If you are confident in parrying his taunt, go for it. If not, stick with Grasp proc parrying. You cant hit vitals in his W so dont aa. Try to abuse him early before he gets bramble. His taunt is his escape so if he uses it poorly and you can win, chase him down.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Shen will mostly build a bit tanky with Wit's End as his primary way to deal a lot of AP damage late game. It would be wise to never utilize your (Q) to poke him unless he has recently used his (E) dash and landed his taunt while in his (W) spirit blade which prevents our (AA) damage from landing, otherwise he can simply stun you and wait out the duration with his (W). He is going to often roam and help his team out a lot and be right back in the lane shortly after with his teleport, you could follow after him, but for the most benefit to your team, try to damage him as low as you can before he arrives, making him very weak. ”

Suseri says “This is a farming Lane you should win after some recalls. His laning phase is stronger since he can avoid you from damaging him but after some items you can't lose if you're not behind. He also has a higher attack range so keep that in mind for trades.”

Polarshift says “He can't outdamage your healing. Try to dodge his sword and dash and he shouldn't be able to chunk you. Freeze the lane as always, since hes pretty gankable. CC him to deny his ultimate!”

Riealone says “With Shen in enemy team you have only 2 options when he has R - farm jungle or gank him. It might seem there is no problem, but this champ counters your possible macro plays really hard”
Arfreezy says “A tank jungler but his clear is very poor so this matchup shouldn't be hard for Graves since you can outscale easily through efficient farm and pathing. Shen doesn't have the best ganks either so you should be able to get a sizeable lead before the first ultimate at level 6 which you can either counter gank or punish by taking something on the opposite side of the map.”

BullwhipGriffin says “Shen "E" blocks all auto attacks, meaning your Q, auto attacks, and ult do no damage to anyone in a teamfight, refrain from ulting until shen uses "E" unless you can fear him before ulting so he can't use his E in time”

liserith says “He can gap-close pretty well with his taunt dash, but his damage comes from his sword. If you can avoid being in line with his sword, you can duel him super easily. However, his counterganking ability is even better than Pantheon's and he can make a 2v1 into a 2v2. ”

Alcibiades1473 says “Shen usually builds tanky and his taunt can ruin your glorious E charge and with it your day. If you see one consider the bruiser path, because there's a good chance you're not gonna assassinate people unless his R is on CD”
