Thoughts on Shen?

I haven't played too much Shen since his update and recently realised why. I mainly play support and his energy changes have made his ability to support so much harder. This is mainly due to his resource cost for his Q. This is what is bugging me about Shen as you are almost forced to go Q first to play him as until this is maxed, his Q cost is just too high; particularly as you need to use it to reposition your blade. Really wish Riot would look to at least reduce the cost of this at early levels to help Shens that want to max taunt earlier (eg support Shen's) so I can feel useful in lane. What is everyone elses thoughts on this?
