[Top 3] TFT Best Shen Builds That Are Powerful

Best Shen Builds in TFT
If light travels so fast, how come it's never caught a ninja?

Shen in TFT is as strong as he is in League, doing his known job of protecting his teammates and dealing some pretty good damage when having his augment by your side.

Shen costs 3 gold, which makes him one of the champions that you can get to 3 stars, and by placing the right tank items on him, he won’t die on the frontlines.

In this article, we will discuss everything about Shen and how to place him to make sure you get the first place and earn those LP.

You're already dead, you just haven't caught up yet.

Shen is a common champion in many combos as he shares three core traits and costs three gold, which means that you have a high chance of getting him in your early rounds.

Shen shares the InifiniTeam trait, which opens portals that duplicate champions on them; the Hacker trait, which summons a Hecarim robot that turns the one standing on it into an assassin; and the Defender trait, which allows him and his team to stack more armour.

Shen’s traits, stats, items, and the best combos that he can fit into are going to be discussed in detail below so that you can win your games.

Best comps for Shen

3) Best Ezreal


  • 7 InfiniTeam
  • 3 Sureshot
  • 2 Defender
  • 1 Ace

As you try to level up 1-3 gold champions to level 3 because they will be of tremendous value to your team, this is a quick reroll to level 8 with a really strong economy.

You also need to find an InfiniTeam emblem or just craft one using a spatule and a B.F. Sword.

Best squad for this competition:

1-Pantheon has the Heart trait in common with Lee Sin and Shen, which enables him to do greater damage, as well as the InfiniTeam trait with his pals Lucian and Shen.

2-She would also share the Defender trait with Garen and the InfiniTeam trait with Lucian and Pantheon, enabling them to have duplicate portals.

3-The third member of the InfiniTeam is Lucian.

4-Given that she possesses the Sureshot and Ace traits, Samira would be the primary damage dealer.

5-Given that he shares Samira's InfiniTeam and Sureshot traits, Ultimate Ezreal is a really powerful and expensive option.

6-Since he possesses the InfiniTeam trait, 6-Twisted Fate is a major source of damage and can inflict a lot of harm with his cards.

7-With his Defender attribute, Garen is a formidable frontline.

8-A key choice for your combination is Sivir since she is the third member of Sureshot and the seventh member of InfiniTeam.

2) Super Lucian


  • 3 Supers
  • 3 InfiniTeam
  • 2 Heart
  • 2 Quickdraw

As you will have a higher chance of finding them in the shop, it is important to get all of the champions to 3 stars before reaching high levels. This is a really slow reroll to level 8.

Top team in this competition:

1-Gangplank After many champions reach level 3, he has the Duelist trait and the Supers trait, making him incredibly powerful.

2-Lee Sin adds one Brawler and one Super to your team's total.

3-Malphite is the third Supers member and a strong defender.

4-Lucian is one of the key damage dealers because he and Ezreal both possess the Quickdraw trait, which enables them to inflict greater damage with fewer shots.

5-Pantheon and Lucian would also share the InfiniTeam feature with Shen, enabling them to have double portals.

6-As he possesses the Quickdraw trait, Ezreal is a wise choice.

7-In addition to having the Heart trait in common with Lee Sin, Pantheon also has the InfiniTeam trait with his pals Shen and Lucian, which would increase his damage output.

1) Defend the Ultimate


  • 4 InfiniTeam
  • 2 parallel
  • 2 Sureshot
  • 2 Quickdraw
  • 2 Defender

As Ultimate Ezreal will be your primary damage dealer, this level 8 reroll should be completed quickly.

Place Fiddlesticks as the eighth member if you have the InfiniTeam emblem; he is the best fit. Also, make sure he is positioned on the portal.

Top team in this competition:

1-The main damage dealer is Ultimate Ezreal, who shares the Sureshot, Parallel, and InfiniTeam attributes. He should be positioned on the portal such that there are two identical copies of him, each inflicting twice as much damage.

2-Pantheon is a fantastic member of the front line for magic resist since he belongs to the InifiniTeam and his talent is enhanced with more MR.

3-Shen is one of the finest frontlines in the game since he possesses both the Defender characteristic, which helps the team build armor, and the InifiniTeam trait, which turns him into a massive tank while he is on the frontline.

4-Garen is one of the finest Defenders in the game since he can shock the most enemies at once and because he is a true tank.

5-Ezreal is a must since he is the only character who, in addition to sharing the Quickdraw trait and the Parallel attribute with Ultimate Ezreal, makes a lethal combination.

6-Given that Ultimate Ezreal also possesses the Sureshot and InfiniTeam traits, Sivir is a wise choice.

7-Miss Fortune is a fantastic option for several kills because she also has Quickdraw, which boosts her bullets' magic damage.
