straight up guide for bruiser shyvana. tanky dps/solo laner. She is a beast...if played right.
And in all seriousness she is in my opinion over powered. probably see a nerf like graves in a
short time (just my opinion and predictions!! not concrete). You will get kills and you will be
unstoppable. I can promise you that (if your good :) )
trades very well
squishy early-mid game
tricky at first
she is a bruiser/solo laner. Play her like renekton/leesin/garen (as in the type of harrassment
and laning). Early game her damage is insane against people with little to no armor. trading is
easy just make sure that minions are helping you not hurting you. mid game shes still pretty
squishy without a warmogs or atmas or force of nature so make sure to stay behind your tank and
go in after. Late game should be similar to a tanky leesin or garen.
---items---with this build you should be doing huge amounts of damage. I believe berseker
greaves**, trinity force**, hextech gunblade**, and bloodthirster** are a must.
however you can switch atmas impaler** and warmogs armor** for other defense items depending
on other team comp. and how the game is progressing (i.e fed brand). -Note: Hextech gunblade
because your ultimate and your dragon breath scales off ap.
---fighting---To be effective and do max output damage you must...spam. with cooldown
reduction runes you should be able to faceroll people. go in with burnout (w) (movement
speed bonus is amazing) keep spamming twinbite (q) (resets auto attack timer so try to
time right after basic attack) and use your flamebreath (e) in between. Your ultimate is
fun to watch and use. try to save for straggers and runaways, however, if team opposite team
bunches up or other easy kills are there use it.
Another great thing about your ultimate is that it pushes and turns opponents to where you
will land. use it to save a teammate or push the enemey team into a turret and such. (p.s push
is very little!!) another tip is to use your ultimate to runaway.
Remember this is a diverse game and it depends on team comp., game progression, and other
factors so YOU have to be flexible. try to remember that its the players that make the champion
good not the items. You can change your runes or masteries or items or anything else at anytime.
Shyvana is a very fun and strong champ. Good Luck.
