Shyvana is usually in the jungle, and for a gank she is really good when she has her Ultimate ready to use. Sometime when I jungle Shyvana I start at blue, then give blue buff to the AP Mid lane champion, not only does it give the AP Mid an advantage but it also makes it easier for you when you go to your red buff, just in case the enemy team attempts to invade to your red and kill you for first blood. If you are needed at a lane because the lane holder is getting pushed back to their turrent, make sure to ping the champion that you will be attacking so the other player knows who to attack when you jump out of the brush in your ultimate. Do not worry if you do not get the kill, you will get fed off the jungle. If there is a lane where your allied champion has been killed go up there and protect against the other champion(s) until your allied champion has returned then you may either advance onto the enemy champion(s) or go back into the jungle.

Anyway guys this is my build guide to how to build Jungle Shyvana, and how to gank your lanes like a pro. Check back later for any more guides that I will be posting in the future.

Ultimate Jump Locations

I use these locations to get into team fights, steal dragon, steal baron and to gank. Also some times I have to use my Ultimate to get out of fights so i can survive and not give my buffs to the enemy. Some times I have to use my Ultimate over some of these walls to help a team mate who is about to die and requires assistance.

Shyvana's Lore

A half-breed born from the union between dragon and human, Shyvana searched all her life for belonging. Persecution forged her into a brutal warrior, and those who dare stand against Shyvana face the fiery beast lurking just beneath her skin.

Dragonkind considered Shyvana’s impure blood an abomination, and she spent her youth pursued relentlessly by one cruel drake. Constantly on the run, she and her father, an outcast dragon, never knew a lasting home. A brutal reflection of countless battles, Shyvana grew hateful and savage. After years of strife, her father finally fell to the other dragon, but not before gravely wounding his foe. Furious with grief, Shyvana pursued her father’s murderer as he fled north to recover. There she encountered a group of humans on the trail of the same drake. Though the men looked upon her in fear, their leader approached Shyvana peacefully. He introduced himself as Jarvan IV, the Prince of Demacia, and offered to aid Shyvana in her quest for vengeance. Together they hunted down and confronted the vicious dragon that had slain her father. Shyvana did not expect the men to survive, but in the clash of fire and steel, Jarvan and his men fought with strength she had never believed humans to possess. The ironclad warriors drove their foe into submission, and Shyvana struck the final blow, tearing the beast’s heart from its body. Inspired by her ferocity, Jarvan offered her a place in the ranks of his elite guard. Shyvana could still see fear in the eyes of his men, but she longed for a true home. Trusting Jarvan’s word, she accepted his offer and now serves as a Demacian warrior. Though her human allies admire her power, they keep their distance. Shyvana strives to repay the prince’s kindness with the power of the dragon within, but she cannot help but wonder if the humans are right to fear her.
