First game as Shen, went 8/1/12 in top lane vs a Fiora and carried all game. I think I found my main, as I tend to prefer tanky champs with good damage, so I can peel with the best form of CC [death], while also being able to 1v1 early-mid game. His Ki Strike's ratio coming from bonus HP is just paradise for me; being able to rush a Giants belt for HP /and/ damage? Me gusta.
Also, my typical "OMG runes cost too much riot pls" complaint
