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

TwTvRANGERZX says “Don't let him pass his sword through you. Shen is another cooldown based champion, so when he uses Q to last hit minions, go in for a trade after. If he wastes W or E, all-inning is easy. Avoid short trades if his cooldowns are up.”

Antisocial_Renekton says “Dont trade pre6, just farm. Past 6 you can try to run him down. Champ is rly cancer to face.”
RandumPersin says “Shen is a rough matchup not because of his lane but because of his ability to globally impact the map from level 6 onwards. Take conqueror, ignite, and look to beat him into a pulp in lane. Do not do any of the following: trade with this guy before level 3 (his levels 1 and 2 are very strong), let him get free grasp procs, let him pull his blade through you for free, OR dump your W into his W. If you can prevent these things from occurring, you should win every trade/fight. The nice part about Shen's ultimate not being a combat ultimate is just that - it's not a combat ultimate. Once we hit level 6 we can look to permanently all-in this champion since our R is extremely broken in lane and he effectively only has 3 abilities. Your main goal for the game against Shen is to become a massive splitpush presence since you can never match his value as a frontliner and teamfighter - look to snowball topside off of an early solo kill and carry the game through early rift heralds and taking turrets. Funneling gold onto Renekton is generally pretty weak, but against Shen I aftually really enjoy building Hullbreaker and playing for map presence instead of teamfight. Giving a drake or two is fine if we can get the wavestate midlane into our favor and take a couple turret plates (or even a whole turret) topside.”

AdventurousBoldJourney says “Take teleport, punch him hard in lane. R him out of his W if he goes for EQW, make him regret picking Shen. When he teleports, shove wave and teleport to where he is to impact the fight.”

Zorroh says “Shen is one of the more straightforward and easy matchups for Gnar since you win trades in both forms. Shen has no way to poke you at all, making spacing him as Mini Gnar very low risk high reward. He also has super high cooldowns on his W and E early game that can easily be punished with such a large window. As mini your main goal should be to poke and harass him as much as possible, don't be afraid to play agro early game but just keep a distance from his Q autos. In mega you will want to combo him and back off, trading autos with Shen is not favorable but getting your combo off and leaving or killing him is. Shen's only way of killing you realistically is 2v1 with his jungler, so be sure to ward whenever you push the wave past river to harass him. I personally like taking Conqueror into this matchup and bone plating is a must. You can also run Fleet or Grasp if you prefer those runes, but it might be slightly tougher to kill him with your mega all in. ”

LeyzeHP says “(Top) Grasp but you can also play Conqueror, Fleet and LT(but because of his W i prefer trading runes). Jump on him with 3 stacks, AA Q him and cancel his E with empowered W, after he can't do that much to you, it's just his taunt. Go Divine into bork/dominik. 12.17/18 he's a bit overpowered right now so the matchup is even harder, play around grasp as much as you can and probably W max can be really valuable, epecially if you are new to this matchup”

Fizzy says “Annoying but killable don't try to fight with W is active, it will be a lost trade. Always use parry on the E of the shen, if he uses the ult on someone try to charge him by pulling the minions and taking the tower. Tiamat will be your best friend in this lane”
RuchaczSzmat69 says “You stomp him, place barrel next to you but not directly underneath you beacuse if you do he can auto it before you W his taunt. Kite him when he gets his W on. The only problem with him is that you cant stop his ult and its very usefull, but then you can push him hard and take plates so its win for you anyways.”
hamgi says “(d blade or d shield, flash/teleport or teleport/ignite, conditioning or boneplating/unflinching) early game shen is the scariest shen. he deals a lot of damage and he blocks basic attacks. and his taunt gives him back energy every time it hits an enemy unit. also, hes a tank, so trading him a lot of the times feels useless. but what makes shen so difficult to lane against is his r, and knowing when to let him go or stop it. u typically want to let shen r if he decides to do it while ur wave is at his tower. if he didnt take tp, this gives u free plates or even a tower (assuming his jg doesnt hold for him) and if he does, u still get a crash and a good reset, maybe even a plate. if the wave is at ur tower, stop his r BUT make sure it wont kill u in the process. i like to hold q3 every time i freeze bc if i ever feel like i SHOULD stop shen r, i have it. i categorized this as a major threat not based on the skill level of the shen player but of how every minute of this lane is crucial. do not waste time against shen; make his ults not worth the tower, herald, or even game”
HightLoL says “care lvl 1 if he has ignite, he is stronger the first few levels. if he wastes e on you you can kill him”

Tips Against Shen as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Lugos says “His biggest weapon is his ultimate and W, play around it, if you see the enemy getting his R you can place E so shen has to step back and cant engage forward anymore.”
LordZaneLP says “counters your passive, but in teamfights you outclass him so hard he cant win”
[S12]💎Taric the King of Glamour Guide💎 by LordZaneLP | Taric Player
Demonsedge90 says “This matchup comes purely down to timing of your skills against his. Just watch out for his taunt which makes it hard for you counter engage safely. Pay attention to his movements closely and you should be fine.”

PykEugeo says “shen is able to negate auto attacks and can taunt you, but other than that there is only one X tank left ”
hampenguin says “It's almost a given that Shen will R whoever you engage on when it matters, so you really need to be able to burst harder than he can shield, or pray you get a Nocturne.”
Pantheon Supp (Anti-Carry) by hampenguin | Pantheon Player
Jageiko says “Shen is not a threat to Poppy Support. Your W counters his E so his R should not worry you. If you see them engaging or counter engaging with his R, just R his target, nullifying his TP while your Top farms.”
RoseOfInnistrad says “Shen can be difficult to engage into, and has great map presence and roams, but on support economy he can struggle to scale well with his long cooldowns. You outscale him in the support role with either build, just be aware of roam timers. Your unmounted W also can cancel Shen's E.”
Slept god says “Not a common support but one you should be worried about he can taunt you away from the squishy adc and set a zone that blocks your auto attacks making it so you can't get your 3 hit passive off and leaving you vulnerable”
Vi support by Slept god | Vi Player
Rissen says “Engage when he doesn't have his [E] and his [W], because that's his most vulnerable point.”

NathanPyke says “His taunt can be oppressing but you can hook him out of his W so your damage doesn't get mitigated ”
