“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.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Farm lane. If you out farm him, you can grab a lead into the mid game.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
