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

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. ”

ForgottenProject says “Ay Tanks are good now, dont underestimate his early damage for it will be your demise. The reason he is good is not because he beats you, it's because he beats your teammates. [1]Parry his Dash/Taunt. [2]Do not get close to him under his turret, he will taunt you and you will die. [3]Do not get close to him when he has a big Minion wave, he will taunt you and Minions will do a lot of damage Early. [4]Keep track of his R, ping to make sure your teammates are aware.”

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.”

RealIreliaCarriesU says “He can be pretty annoying and a lot of them run ignite. He is the last person you want to fight early levels. Start E and be passive however unlike the others once you have your passive stacked don’t look for fights unless you can weave in free autos (2-3) before you all in. If you can survive to 6 without falling too far behind you can beat him a lot easier (though it is still hard). Try to kite out his W and Q his taunt if you have a low hp minion if you can. When you are fighting him post 6 open up with ult when you have passive stacked and start autoing him, use your E after he dashes as it will be easier to hit once his escape is down and you should win as long as you avoid at ALL COSTS Q’ing him when his W is down (the force field around him blocks your Q and autos, when he drops it look to auto minions to have them low enough for a Q reset or kite him out). As long as you play around his W and his passive (kiting them out with low hp minions), you should win, especially post 6”

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.”
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.”

Psychopathic Top says “ Shen is one of those champs that you don’t expect the damage, but the damage simply exists. In lane, be extremely careful of his triple empowered autos. Those do a lot of AD and AP damage, and can chunk you out like crazy. Level 1, three autos from shen can chunk out half your hp. Make sure to stand away from him so he doesn’t taunt you as well. Scale to sheen and look to farm safely. He actually gets extremely hard to kill and can simply taunt out if he sees he cannot out-duel you. The worst is his global can be used to win a lot of early skirmishes, and impact the map in ways you cannot stop. Nasus does not have an ability that can stun or knock up Shen from channeling his R, which makes him extremely obnoxious to just R onto his teammates and turn the tides of a fight. Scale into teamfights, focus on stacking perfectly and shoving the wave into his turret when he Rs out of lane. With good stacks and Sunderer, it is possible to teamfight them even if they get fed as the result of Shen’s ultis. ”

tonisco82 says “Very easy matchup. He cannot stand up to you without using W, and when he does punish him and force him out of lane. Easily stop level 6 ultimates with W.”

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.”
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.”

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!”

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.”

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”
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.”

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”

IHaveNoName says “You can't really kill him reliably because of his W. Focus their DDs in fights preferably.”

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. ”
