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.”
GoliathGames' Ultimate Guide to Urgot (1M+ Mastery Points) by I Am Goliath | Urgot Player
YoungTact says “When he activates his enhanced autos DISENGAGE. Punish him for every cs with the Q-Passive combo and look out for his taunt with W. If he taunts within your hitbox, it WILL go through even if you W it. PAY ATTENTION TO WHEN HE IS ULTING so you can cancel it with either E/R.”
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. PHASE RUSH IS A POSSIBILITY IF YOU SURVIVE EARLY. PHASE RUSH IS A MUST IF YOU TAKE TELEPORT. 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. You can take Teleport if you want to be able to match his ganks. 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.”

Ayanleh says “Shen is medium difficulty. He has decent damage, has some good CC and can set up ganks pretty well but you outscale him so you can play safe early and get some items.”
A Guide To Playing Mordekaiser by Ayanleh | Mordekaiser Player
qasddsa says “This is an easy lane; dodge his taunt as he can do a lot of damage to you with empowered auto attacks. You shouldn't be pushing much as he can get in good ganks with his taunt. Max Q and proceed to freeze the wave at your tower and farm.”
PH45 says “Can be difficult to kill since he can block autoattacks aswell. Gets quite tanky but he shouldnt have kill pressure on you unless he sets up an gank with his E. He will roam after 6 with his ult so be prepare to teleport where he is going or to stop it with your stun.”
Yamikaze says “Minor: There is little kill pressure from the opponent in this lane. More information found below.”

Defensivity1 says “Shen is not difficult because of shen himself, but when an opponent is low shen can ult them, he is difficult to beat in lane level 1-3 CC Tankyness and damage Communicate his level 6 to your team and try to splitpush.”

Pathetic Singed says “Your W cancels his E and (Used to?) cancel his R. Your E still cancels his R. He does a lot of damage and can be a real pain to play against, but so long as you can dodge his E you can get away with doing whatever you want in lane. Just make sure to fling him anytime he R's, if he's smart he'll try to hide but if you have good enough map awareness (There's a purple effect on the minimap when he's teleporting around a person) you should be able to find him and cancel him. Be prepared for the Shen to go nuts on you though.”

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”
Olaf Only's Challenger Top Lane Guide [10.19] by Olaf Only | Olaf Player
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. ”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
Raen says “Try to fight him at level 1 with your E. Remember that his W blocks your autoattacks even your W. Be prepared with your E when he will be in air to taunt you just press E and you will minimize all his dmg. ”
CaptianMike says “Shen is an interesting matchup. He deals %max hp magic damage with his Q which makes your trades bad. In addition he can block AA with his W. You can win trades if you manage to hit him with your E after his W. The good part is that you can Q or W him out of his ult! ”

RTO says “Avoid trading with him pre 6. Once you are 6 you will be able to out trade him very hard. Make sure that you bait out his W prior to stunning. If you don't, then you will just waste your stun. ”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Not much to say here. Avoid getting hit by his Q (don't trade with him if that happens) and if he misses a taunt, you can punish him hard for that. Rush PD.”

ak521 says “A good shen will play it safe, use their taunt to disengage. Run Teleport, use your E when he is channelling and force fight. Bait out his abilities. If he's running Teleport he'll be able to match a split so Juggernaut may be a decent option. Shove him into tower and try invading if he's playing too safe.

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.”

iZeal says “While this matchup is Darius favored, Shen's early game damage and durability from his shield spam have to be taken into consideration as well as the 225 range he gets from his Q sword. Darius gains the upper hand with levels especially at level 6 with his ultimate, however Shen's ultimate allows him to impact the entire map (which can leave you with 0 counterplay if you run Ghost Flash) and Shen's W completely nullifies auto attacks including your bleed stacks making it very hard for you to deal with Shen in teamfights or during ganks. DBlade, Phage/Mercs/Tabis”

Justkb says “This is Darius favored, don't underestimate Shen's early burst. You can start to beat him hard at level 6, try to pressure waves so he doesn't ult, look to run him down once he has used his taunt.”
✔️[10.19] JUST1KB'S DARIUS GUIDE! by Justkb | Darius Player
iZeal says “It's very hard for Shen to punish you since your sustain is incredible and Shen has to blow E to get onto you making him susceptible to a full combo into disengage. Don't be afraid later on when you have enough cooldown reduction to extend the trades since Shen's burst is impressive, but your healing will allow you to deal with his DPS unless he is too far ahead. Do not let him pull his sword through you and dodge his E as this will leave him with no way of closing the gap any further, try to bait out his W by cancelling your passive auto attack since it blocks all the healing from it completely.”

SELORONIOS says “He actually deal a lot of damage. Use your Q to slow him. He's easy to kite.”

Rhoku says “Shen CAN be hard to deal with but if you activate your passive early into the fight, he stands no chance. Just don't fight him level 1, as his empowered autos do a LOT of damage. Trust me. Don't stand between him and his spirit sword. If it goes through you, it gives him a lot of attack speed which he can use to melt you down. And also, make sure that your 1 auto that you need to activate your passive does not get blocked by his AA blocking ability. Thankfully, its the only thing from your kit that he blocks. Once level 6 rolls around, things change. He WILL look to gank his team so PING YOUR TEAM to make sure they are ready. If you find him ulting, use your pull or your R to stop him. Post level 3, you win all ins straight up and with level 6, he stands ZERO chance against you in fights. He is just a hard matchup because he will probably have much more impact on the map than you.”

LoLReal says “No threat, weak tank that can't trade into us. His W blocks nothing and he'll be pushed in and have difficulty roaming or ulting his team.”
LoLReal says “Very easy lane. Weak tank. He can block our hemorrhage stacking with his W briefly but it's not enough to be a concern. ”
ChaseMorePlz says “Rush Armor Penetration. In order to counter Riven, the enemy player has to know the champion they are playing better than you know your own. This is a thing to consider when playing against any foe 1 on 1, which is where Riven has the clear advantage.Shen is a general counter than will also be a challenge for me down the path of exile... ”

Ravenborne says “Do not start the trade off with E. Be sure to not get taunted under tower. His new empowered Q's deal alot of Damage so his Level 1 to 2 hurts. You hard-win at Level 3. If he ults near you cancel it with E to deny his roams.”

Phrxshn says “You will have to make short trades against Shen as he can out trade majority of top laners due to his immense defense and maximum percent damage. Dodge his Shadow Dash(E) to prevent him from trading. It is up to you if you want to let him use his Stand United(R) or not. If he does use it, do push. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Warwick) (Recommended Items: Blade of the Ruined King, Mercury's Treads) (Jaws of the Beast follows Shadow Dash) ”

ERNESTSAURUS says “FLEET FOOTWORK / CONQUEROR SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Shen is the type of "tank" that deals a lot of damage of his Q with Grasp Procs and overall his kit works really good against Duelist and Hypercarries. As for laning phase since his kit peforms better into agressive laners rather than Passive laners such as Nasus, he will struggle to find chances of poking you hard enough to the point that you are really low but this doesn't mean that you should go super confident, play passive and respect his Early game power. Once you hit lvl6 and Sheen spike you can start doing short trades into him since Shen lacks of sustain and remember Nasus lvl 6 is a combat ability where Shen lvl 6 is an utility ability, keep in mind you outscale him really easily, so if you can't find any scenario to kill him just farm and you'll be fine. Also Shen now builds Titanic Hydra most of the times, but you can see some that go for Sunfire Cape or even both, the point is that both items help Shen have a better wave clear, which means that the wave will always be on your side of the lane. Later on splitpushing is sort of not worth it since he can R to his team and force a 5v4 teamfight and Nasus can't stop his R animation, so its overall better just to teamfight, you will outscale him easily.”

chrisorion says “Avoid letting Shen's Spirit Blade go through you as it lets his Q do bonus % health damage. His Twilight Zone blocks all your damage except parry. Parry E or empowered Q. Remember when diving to avoid his taunt as it can mess your dive up. Ping when missing as he can ult to impact other lanes. Go Manamune if he goes Bramble Vest and Ninja Tabi.”

ChaseMorePlz says “I personally don't like laning versus Shen at all. If you're able to shut him down then it's very good, however if he is able to ignore your poke he can provide a lot of support to his team to get them a lead early on. Try to prevent this if possible, can actually snowball out of control for bigger advantages in Shen's favor.”

Fan22 says “Shen W can cancel your E AA, but aside from that he is not really difficult. You can cancel his R whit your Q or W. If you poke him enough and hit 6 you should bea ble to kill, if not, then do not give him more kills or lategame its going to be difficult, or impossible if he peels the backline.”

Shumair says “He can't build MR due to Mordekaiser's magic pen passive and he can't build health due to your passive doing % health damage, along with Liandry's if you purchase it. Due to this, a good Shen will either go full support for teamfights and peel or full damage. In either case, ulting him in teamfights is always VERY beneficial. In lane you should always have eyes on him in case he decides to ult. In which case, your E or ult will stop him. He can only kill you very early on with a good taunt, after that it's free.”
NickCola Tesla says “Playing against Shen in lane is not quite difficult at all! Your poke is able to rival his, and his CDs are considerably longer than yours. The problem in this lane comes from the insane map presence he has. You can try pushing lane into his tower to prevent his Stand United plays, but only do so when you have strong vision/ know where the enemy Jungle is. Also, make sure you don't get taunted under his tower, for obvious reasons. Your ultimate and Q are able to cancel his ultimate's channel, so keep that in mind if he's making a split second play! You might be able to handle his split push later in the game with Sunfire Cape and Titanic Hydra, but make sure you have TP up if you plan on doing this. In lane, only use your Q if his taunt isn't up, or you see him at the outer range of its hitbox. His taunt is able to cancel your Q!”

Twist21 says “Against Shen it is all about playing around his taunt.If you dodge it and kite around him when he is in W you will win easily.One tip that I would give when playing vs Shen is be patient when you are trying to dive him since he has many ways to outplay you.Standard runes and sums for this one.”

StrikeX114 says “Spirit's Refuge (W) counters your passive and Grasp, Shadow Dash (E) provides CC, and his ultimate gives him a "Get Out of Jail Free" card. Less likely to kill you than he is to set you up for a gank, always play close to your tower for safety. ”

Bombabo says “Very tanky, and can easily dirsupt a majority of your combo, while shrugging off any damage you do manage to get off. Play more of a passive laning phase, poke him if he does not have too many defensive items, and apply constant pressure top to prevent him from ulting to another lane”

wallobear53 says “Position properly and don’t let Shen’s Q pass through you as it will allow him to deal a lot more damage and will allow him to win the trade quite easily. Always kite away from him if he tries to fight you. Trade with him every time his E is down. It is his main form of mobility and without it he is quite an easy target to kill during a gank. Once he gets his Ultimate, he will be able to make cross map plays and ruin gank attempts on other lanes. Try to save your CC for such moments and if he manages to Teleport successfully, just look to shove in the wave and make sure you get some Tower Plates. ”

Chili Dog says “Runes: Conq, Triumph, Tenacity, Last Stand + Magical Footwear, Cosmic Insight. Sub Runes: CDR, Damage, Armor Summoners: Teleport. Shen is a super annoying but manageable match up. A simple kit that counters Riven directly. However, on the off chance that you dodge his taunt, try to not to waste your autos while he has his W up. Wait it out and trade with a W-Q into fast combo once his W is down. TP is a must have because of his ult. Once he gets his tiamat he will try to shove lane and ult onto a teammate. Once you see him do this you have three options: 1. You ping him missing and keep farming lane for a gold/xp lead, 2. You teleport down with him for a counter gank, or 3. you ignore the wave and try to stop his ult with Q3 or W. Later in the game you want to avoid Shen as much as possible, dive the backline then get out. I suggest a Tiamat in this lane to match his push and contest his Ult or TP.”

Melyn says “His circle makes plants do no damage and he has a lot of kill pressure with taunt. Be especially aware of the possibility of him taunt-flashing. Try to poke with E (Q gets you dangerously close) and if he jumps on your ADC, try to kill/zone theirs.”
LeSocair says “This is an easy and natural matchup, but take care of his Q as it will do more damage than you'll expect. W the E and remember he can avoid AA with his W. Warn your teammates once he gets 6, just in case.”

ModxLoL says “I think Shen typically wins this lane right now just because he's a little overpowered as a champion, but with that being said, I'm putting it as even because I think Riven deals with Shen better than most champions, and when Shen isn't overpowered Riven wins this lane. Two important things in this lane is to 1)dodge his taunt and 2)don't fight him while his dodge ability is active. Be careful of his first two levels. He has a really strong early game especially since his new passive buff. Once his taunt and his dodge ability are on cooldown, you can look at all inning him if you have poked him down hard enough. This matchup gets significantly easier after you get your Black Cleaver. ”

Stiwy says “He can have preety good trades early with his all-ins + grasp procs. After level 6 he does not have a real ult to fight you so you can try to get him low enough to be executed. Remeber to ping your teammates when you hear him shouting strange words because he is ulting and he's trying to pressure other lanes. You should be able to cancel his ult with your E if he is dumb enough to ult in the middle of the lane or in some unsafe locations. Don't try to dive him because his dash can screw you over. Take Cull and aim to farm.”

EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Shen early game can take very good short trades with you. Be very careful about his sword positioning, if he pulls it through you he can get a lot of extra bonus damage and attack speed against you for a solid trade. You can start looking for allin trades with shen around level 4 (unless he wastes his q level 1 and 2 for farm instead of using it to trade with you.) When fighting against Shen what he will do is use his q, block auto attacks with his W and then taunt through you back to his turret, so in this matchup when you are going for an allin DO NOT position between Shen and his escape path if you dont think 100% sure you are killing him. If you put yourself between Shen and his escape path he can taunt through you dealing extra damage and disengaging from you. This will save you extra hp on each trade. At level 6 is when Tryndamere can start to really dominate Shen. Shen gets an ultimate which is USELESS for a 1v1 and Tryndamere gets 5 seconds of being unkillable. You can run tiamat with lethal tempo build in this matchup if you would like to put some extra pressure on Shen and his turret. One tip about Shen's W is that it blocks auto attacks but only on himself and other champions so if there are minions around shen when he W's and you have tiamat you can actually hit the minions or use your tiamat active and still damage him. If you are looking to dive Shen, try to bait him into taunting you under turret, this saves you from having to chase him down through his dash away from you, also puts him right on top of you and you start the dive with an auto attack which is what you want. Before you look to dive Shen, make sure you "prepare" him by taking short trades with auto attack + spin out (while dealing the spin damage on the way out.) In the mid-late game splitpush you outscale Shen in the 1v1, but it can be hard to dive him effectively because of how tanky he gets. Make sure that every time you shove Shen in that you are doing 1 of these 3 things, make sure you are looking for trade damage on Shen, make sure you set up deep vision to protect you on the splitpush, and make sure you look to take enemy jungle camps when you can. You can get leads on Shen in the splitpush without killing him, but always look to pressure him first. If his team is closeby and you dont wanna risk getting caught out just place some wards or take some neutrals. If it is pure 1v1 though you should always look to pressure Shen and look to get him low enough so you can dive him.”

BloodyDream81 says “Match up assez simple, respecte le jusqu'à ton niveau 3, et il ne pourra plus gagné les trades, gardent quand même quelques notions en tête. Fais attention au placement de son épée spirituel, et ne te mets pas entre elle et lui si possible, car si lorsqu'il appelle son épée avec le A, l'épée te traverse il gagne un gros boost de dégâts sur ses trois prochain coup ! Attention également à son Z qui est un dome arrêtant toutes les auto attacks pendant 3 secondes, temporise pendant la durée en te positionnant derrière lui pour anticiper son E qu'il fera pour battre en retraite, et utilise ton A pendant son dome pour ne pas rien faire. Une fois niveau 6 le match up est très simple, et si il se positionne mal tu pourras très facilement le punir. Astuce : Pense à le garder en visuel, et si il essaie d'ultime un de ses alliées, utilise ton E pour cancel le sort. ”

The most optimal thing to do is to ult in lane and then teleport but if it isn't up don't worry about it.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “One of the better tanks into Yasuo due to his good base damage and his anti auto attack zone. Try to fake out your movements to bait out his stun because if you do get hit by one he can get a pretty good chunk on you. Kite away from him when he puts down his W and go back onto him when it runs out. Post 6 the lane gets a lot easier due to him not having an ulti for lane while you do. Don't position yourself between him and his Q or else you will make his Q do a lot more damage than usual. Lastly, his E has a pretty big CD of 18sec lvl so use that time when its down to really abuse him since he won't really have much damage once it's down.”

Rengar Mains Community Guide ft. ScrubNoob, CallMeExiled, P1 by Discord Rengar Mains | Rengar Player
Discord Rengar Mains says “Shen fucks over any melee in the game that isn't either a meaty damage machine from the early (Darius, Garen) or doesn't rely on autoattacks to do significant damage. You are neither, so the odds are stacked against you. The problem with Shen is that his passive shields make him naturally tanky, his W is basically an AoE Jax E for his entire team, and his global pressure is massive after 6, so you can only really rely on your W and E to deal with him and if he gets ahead he will win fights all across the map since you can't really stop him. If he ever misses his E he is fucked for a bit however, so you can try engaging then, baiting his W, and then going in again, but it's more likely than not that he will just withstand whatever you throw at him and then just walk away. Always keep an eye on where his sword is, if he hits you with it while calling it for his Q he can easily take half your hp away. The only reason this matchup isn't rated as 5 is that you can at the very least survive it and if you get a lead it becomes significantly easier, but it's difficult. Tp + Flash is recommended, it's very hard to kill him in lane on your own, plus it can be used to follow his R channel. Either grasp or conqueror are good, and stasis works wonders if you are behind too much.”

Thr3shPrinc3 says “This matchup can me quite difficult if the Shen is really good with his champion. He can cancel out your empowered auto attacks by staying near his sword and using W. The bonus is you can cancel out his dash with your flay and thus deny him from taunting you. This matchup will depend on how good the Shen is. Watch for when Shen uses ult as you can cancel it out with both Q and E so you are a hard counter for him in that way. If he does ult try and follow with a Teleport if you can and think you can win the fight. Otherwise just keep pushing your own lane and get turret plating. Midgame you are going to be stronger then Shen unless he gets a lead in another lane and late game you can just focus other targets and cancel out his CC.”

ProgettoYorick says “Against shen it is feasible to stay in lane, put it as difficulty level 3 for this reason, in lane you will decide whether to push or freeze the lane. The only problem it can give you is its ability to block hits, it will block your hits including Q + the attacks of your ghouls, fundamental damage that yorick needs Advice from OTP: no dive shen is very risky, even if he has few hp, and you are trying to do damage to the tower with him underneath, it will be an instant and your lane will be lost”

He's annoying cause you'll have a very hard time killing him and because he has two teleports he can turn fights around the map and still prevent you from just taking his tower. Your jungler will likely need to help in order to do much in this lane.”

Jnewbringspain says “Easy matchup. Shen only has a shot at killing you between level 2-6. After that, you have too much power with Feast for him to overcome. Both his W and R are pretty useless against you, and he's not particularly mobile, making it easy to land your Q's. The only thing Shen has going for him in this matchup is his Q, because it does max HP damage. Don't let him pull his spirit sword through you and you'll do fine. If he goes all-in with taunt, it should allow you to easily land your skills and out trade him. With that said, Shen is always still useful for his team because of his ult. Try to keep vision on him and interrupt it if possible.”

DrMoneybags says “Shen doesn't tend to be too hard to beat in lane. With conqueror on your side, he's pretty easy to chunk out in trades. Try not to use your whole W when he uses his W to block your autos. You can easily beat him in trades if he doesn't have his W up, so abuse that to snowball the lane in your favor. Otherwise, just be careful of jungle ganks.”

XPRflew says “Just farm Shen is mostly just a tank and ping the miss enemy when he is lv 6.”
E61K says “The only reason he is at Minor is because his ultimate can deny you your Ultimate Reset. Other than that the match-up is simple. Avoid attacking him while he has his Spirit's Refuge up and lastly use your E to hit your Q because he can use his Dash to dodge it.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: %Health Damage, Tanky, blocks Auto-Attacks. Weaknesses: Low Mobility, Out-scaled. With most melee matchups, you want to walk up to the minion wave early and start shoving so that it can crash into the tower and bounce back into you. This matchup is no different especially since it’s Shen who has trouble CS-ing under tower. The last place you want to be is under tower versus a Shen. His W can be a bit annoying because it blocks both auto attacks and your Q. He usually builds tank early game so the later the game goes, the less of a threat he becomes to you especially if you are even or ahead. Another tip is tower dive him with caution because of his taunt which could lead to your death. Never trade with him when his Q travels through you as it gives him extra %health damage on his autos. You will lose pretty much every trade when this is up in the early game. Focus on chipping him down and avoiding his spirit sword from touching you so he doesn’t get the damage bonus on it. When it comes to using Riposte, you can either look for the taunt or his enhanced auto attacks to slow his attack speed and prevent the damage.”

thedunkening111 says “He can do a bit of damage, but youll do more with your burst. Out fight the man, and don't let him land that taunt. Make him take a walk with you when he uses his circle thingy. Take Conqueror”
galvapheonix says “ I haven't ever really had trouble with Shen, however I can advise never try to tower dive him at medium or below health as you will get taunted and die. If he ults to save a teammate either teleport and follow up for team fight, or stay and push out lane. The most optimal thing to do is to ult in lane and then teleport but if it isn't up don't worry about it.”

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!”

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.”

DarkPit59 says “Shen a la capacité de vous appliquer un CC très puissant tout au long de la partie et d'infliger de plutôt lourds dégâts. Il dispose également d'un ultime global qui peut vous counter-gank assez rapidement et ruiner votre burst. Trackez le délai de récupération de son ultime et gardez en tête que vous nettoyez la jungle plus vite que lui.”

Laverenz says “A really tanky champion with an ability to duel like no other. His taunt, Q and W makes him one of the best fighters in the game. His ult is also something you don't always have in mind.”
VF PentaMasteR says “Because of his nature of being tank but still doing damage, you will have a hard time killing him in early game at 1v1, since he can block your auto attacks, W, E, and he can manage to leave if he is feeling uncomfortable in the fight. Still, not a big threat at the late game.”
