Erlang Shen - How To / What To

Erlang Shen is a very good pressure pick. This is a god that has the potential anywhere on the map to find a solo kill, and arguably the best warrior in the game for peeling.

Here is what you should be looking for. When you are fighting with the enemy you will be wanting to use your 72 Transformations ES to Turtle form into the enemy causing them to be knocked up, when they land on the ground you can use your Pin to root them in place. This is great set up for your ADC to put poke on them. Using your Spot Weakness also helps to add the damage on to the enemy.

In a team fight if you can manage to knock up as many players as you can this is a great way to distract the enemy while your team engages with you. Using your 9 Turns Blessing will taunt all of the enemies towards you peeling them away from your team. This is a great set up tool to go right into 72 Transformations ES - Pin

Erlang Shen is a bully. However he is not without his downsides. If the enemy has large amounts of CC's you can be easily picked on, and pressured out. This almost always means if the enemy has the CC you will need to pick up Purification Beads otherwise you will end up getting CC'd to death. However with that in mind, you do build tank enough with these builds that if the enemy commits one or two ultimate's on you, there is a high chance you will not die, and you can use your kit to get away. Any time the enemy Mid / Jungle / ADC / Solo has to use an ultimate on you the better. Value every single time.

dang that was fast 0.0
question how do you feel about frost bound hammer? i feel like it could potentially fit in with this build because it offers tons of health and you will be able to slow enemies and that could be kinda support ish?

If you want Frostbound you could go something like: Sentinel's, Ninja Tabi > Thebes > Frostbound / Ichaival > situational > Spirit / Mantle > Sent Embrace.

It can for sure work in the Hybrid build! I will add a note on it, I am also going to add another block with every situational item you could need. It will look similar to my guardian guides where the last block is all just items :)
