Not Updated For Current Season

The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Introduction

Introduction



Hello there! I'm Xuratia and this is my first ever guide. As such, I'd be appreciative of any advice or feedback you guys might have.

Shyvana is a champion I bought recently, because I wanted to learn how to jungle and had no champions to learn with. Since then, she's become my favourite champion because of her speed, tankiness, damage and a really cool ultimate.

I've put a lot of testing into this build, and it's the best I've found so far. Of course if I find something better, I'll update the guide.

Pros/Cons

Pros/Cons

Pros
- No mana management necessary
- Ridiculously fast jungle clear time
- Her E is a movement speed boost
- She's naturally tanky
- She turns into a dragon
- AOE damage while in dragon-form
SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE Cons
- She has no stuns or slows
- This means it's hard for her to gank

Runes

Runes



For runes, I like to take the following:

- Greater Mark of Attack Damage for the quicker jungle clear time and a better ability to gank.

- Greater Seal of Armor for more jungle survivability, and because it makes Shyvana just a bit more tanky.

- Greater Glyph of Attack Speed because (for reasons I'll explain later) Shyvana scales very well with attack speed.

- Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed because while Shyvana is already a speedy champion, these will greatly help with chasing your target down or escaping from a sticky situation.

Masteries

Masteries



While it is entirely possible to run 21/9/0 masteries on Shyvana, I find it better (especially for new junglers) to use 9/21/0 masteries on her.
These masteries not only allow her to have an easier time in the jungle early on, but improve on her already impressive resistances to both magical and physical damage.
Also, Initiator will slightly improve your movement speed which is never a bad thing...

Summoner Spells

Summoner Spells



Smite is a must have for any jungler. If you are new to jungling especially, please, please, please don't try and jungle without Smite, you'll just make a fool of yourself.

Exhaust is most viable option for a secondary summoner spell. Because Shyvana has no CC, this may give her the edge she needs to make a few successful ganks.

Flash is a great spell I suppose... But be aware that you will most likely not be able to gank very often if you take it.

No other summoner spells are viable on Shyvana in my opinion.

Shyvana's got skills!

Fury of the Dragonborn is a pretty good passive ability in my opinion. It empowers Shyvana's auto-attacks and rewards you for staying in battle and continuously fighting the enemy. This ability is part of the reason Shyvana scales so well with attack speed; the more attacks you can get in, the more useful this ability is.
