Shang Tsung is now available in NetherRealm’s latest, and that means a lot of people are looking for Shang Tsung combos in Mortal Kombat 11. While it’s still early, a lot of lab work has been down and some decent MK11 Shang Tsung combos have already been discovered. If you’re looking to pick up the sorcerer, read on to find out some Shang Tsung combos for Mortal Kombat 11. As new Shang Tsung combos are discovered, we’ll update this article!

Performing combos as Shang Tsung has a few unique variables. If you know the opponent’s character, you can end most of Shang’s combos with Soul Steal (Back, Forward+2). You won’t get maximum damage, but it’s an easy way to guarantee a Soul Steal. If you don’t know the opponent’s character, you can end your combos with Ground Eruption (Down, Back+1) or Sorcery Rush (Back, Forward+4). For some combos, ending with Back, Forward+4 can be more strict and require precise timing. If you’re having trouble, go for the easier Ground Eruption ender.

Note: All combos are performed using the Warlock tournament variation, but can also be performed in the Outworld Sorcerer variation.
