Hello guys, I'm t0ff1x and i will show you my guide for solo-top
Shyvana. This is my first guide, but I'am sure that it wont be bad because i really know how to play shyvana, and I want to share this with you. Sorry for my bad english, i'l try to to write correctly.
If you really are interested in Shyvana playing in solo-top, so this guide is just for you. What I mean is that I play Shyvana solo-top for since she was released. I tried loats of builds, I never used mobafire's builds, I was creating my own. Of course it took some time for me to create perfect solo-top build. I played versus a lot of strong solo-top champions as Garen, Mordekaiser, Renekton etc. And Shyvana can be counter for almost any solo-top champion. More information about how to play versus who, you will find in ranked play section.
Pros / Cons
There are some of her Pros/Cons. Not a lot of Cons i know, but way more Pros than i will write below.
+ Easy farming with "Burnout".
+ Easy last hit with "Twin Bite".
+ All of the abilities makes very strong combo.
+ Easy to catch or run away from enemy.
+ Have ability to fly threw the wall.
+ Can make massive crit. dmg.
+ Very big dmg/Good tank.
+ Doesn't have mana.
+ Very big early game dmg.
+ Very usefull in late game.
- Enemies can know when you have your ultimate or not, because of the fury bar.
- Enemies might like to focus you.
- Tricky ultimate. Sometimes its hard to use it right.
- If your skills on cooldown, it's hard to do something usefull.
- Doesn't have any stun/slow/fear/silence/taunt etc. Only interrupt.
For Mark Runes I take: Greater Mark Of Desolation because it gives you loads of armor penetration that helps you take out squishy enemies.Very easy to make big harrasment to enemies. Being in solo-top, armor penetratopn is very effective versus champion you are standing, because if you just make some hits to your oppenent you will make nice dmg. and take lead of solo-top.
For Seal Runes I take: Greater Seal Of Alacrity because playing as shyvana you need attack speed for your fury bar, and Dragon Decent.
For Glyph Runes I take: Greater Glyph Of Focus because playing as Shyvana you need your cooldowns lower than ordinary. For example you used Burnout and someone is ganking you and you need to wait 8 seconds till it will be able to use again and you could run away easier and faster. It is very good for Twin Bite as well. After using Twin Bite your cooldowns are reduced already, but Greater Glyph Of Focus makes cooldown even less so you can allmost spam with Twin Bite.
For Quitessence Runes I take: Greater Quitessence Of Desolation because combining Mark runes and Quitessences i have 25 armor penetration. With it i make huge dmg. early and late game. It helps to control solo-top.
