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.
Hi everyone!!! Well, this is my first guide and what I will try to show isn't something new. This guide was built with the experience of matches that I have plus reading other guides from here:
and watching some players online:
Now that I have explained a bit, lets keep on.
Note: If I have any mistake of any kind or you do not like something of it, tell me and I'll try to make it better. And if I have spelling mistakes tell me that too XD (It's not my first language)
Pros / Cons
- Great damage output and burst damage
- Can take Squishys down in a few seconds
- Has got a lot of AOE
- Can jungle/counter-jungle extremely fast
- Great Mobility
- Very strong mid/late game
- Not the best escaping abilities (unless you use your Ulti)
- A bit weak till lvl 6
- No CC
- Can be easily kited by Ranged champions
I star with so I can jungle very quickly, then and later .
When I'm chasing someone or making a gank, first I try to be really close with and then use so I can reduce their armor. And then of course hit them hard with .
At the beginning, I was not sure if after maximize I should maximize or but after a few tests in custom (your best option to practice something new XD) I realize that the best one was
Creeping / Jungling
At the beggining of the match, I start with wolves, then blue (this two with a bit of help) and then wraiths. I continue with golems, red and again wraiths. All this in a time of 3:30 minutes more or else. In this time, I reach lvl 4. I try to be the one with more lvl at the begginig so in that way, the ganks that I do make sense.
Another thing that you shoud keep in mind is that as the jungler, you will have to control the time of respawn of the Baron , Drake , Red and Blue buffs. (Well, your support can do it too, but just in case, try to keep an eye on this). Always alert your teammates of the time of respawn.
- Red and Blue: 5 minutes
- Dragon: 6 minutes
- Baron: 7 minutes
Shyva can be extremelly usefull if your team has at least one or 2 champs with CC (one in top and the other in mid or bot, it's the same, you have to move XD)so in that way your ganks are more powerfull and the enemy can not escape.
The build that I show is not obligatory but is the most common one. Of course it depends on what items the other team has too. What you have to keep in mid is your core items. Those are your Wriggle's Lantern (kill really fast the cs and have a free ward) , Mercury's Treads (defense and tenacity) , Frozen Mallet (your CC), Wit's End (more defense and speed) . The other items depends on what your team needs, what you need and the enemy build in general.
To finish this, as I write at the beginning, this guide was built with the experience of matches, reading guides and watching some good players online. In my opinion, Shyvana , for the jungle, is one of the best champions that are right now: strong,quick, great mobility, easy and fun to use of course ^^.
Thanks for reading
In the coming days I'll try to add some pictures of jungling, explain a bit more of everything and if I can, add some videos. That's all for now. See ya
