WhyGrasp of the Undying

Shen naturally takes great advantage of Grasp's empowered auto-attacks thanks to the majority of his power being in his [Q].

WhyShield Bash

Shield Bash on Shen is easily proccable with [Q] and synergizes with his wanting to auto attack for the majority of his offensive damage.


Conditioning is an all-around solid defensive rune, giving up early weak resists for stronger resists later. These resists also scale well with Shen's natural health stacking.


Shen loves to stack health as it improves his passive shield and tankiness. Overgrowth scales incredibly well with high-health items and champions.


Triumph's massive mid-fight heal allows you to sustain incoming damage in teamfights so you can continue front-lining.

WhyLegend: Alacrity

The extra Attack Speed from Alactrity is fantastic for trading in lane with [Q] empowered auto attacks.
