Introduction

Hello! This is my 1st COMPLETE guide about Shyvana, the Half Dragon. Shyvana was my 1st 6300 IP champion ever bought, after I got an advice from my friend. She is a really potent player, with both Attack Damage and high resistance. Most people say: "Shyvana MUST be a tank.". I reply "SHUT THE F@CK UP AND READ THIS GUIDE!!" . Shyvana can be played as a tank, but then she is just being a "bait", so your dreams about a Powerful Dragon who can burn and destroy everything in his path just stop there. If you want to reveal her true power, read below...

Phreak is not the best summoner ever been, but in this champion spotlight he is right. Her runes give her extra Attack Speed and Health. Attack Speed is a MUST-HAVE for all Shyvana players because of her passive, Fury of the Dragonborn.

Basicly, these masteries help you farm easier, as you do not recieve full minion damage and do more damage yourself.

Items



These items help Shyvana unlock a big part of her power. There is not Right Build/Wrong Build, just choices. I chose this one cuz it gives me both Attack Damage with Attack Speed, as well it provides me with a slice of Armor and Magic Resist. Plus, it gives me Lifesteal, wich makes Shyvana look like a Dragon who eats it's victims!

I believe balance in all of Shyvana's abilities is the key to victory, as all of her abilities do damage. I you are jungling, then use the following sequence...

Summoner Spells

RECOMENDED
  • Flash It helps you cover some ground in a chase, or escape form your enemies
  • Ignite AWESOME! True damage + 50% Healing Effects Reduction!![/b]
  • Exhaust Makes Shyvana more effective, as she can chase down opponents easily, or help her teamates escape from sticky situations
  • Ghost Adds Movement Speed and Ignores Unit Collision
  • Smite 4 Jungling ONLY!


    Meh!
    • Heal A little useless if you know how to deal burst damage at once
    • Teleport I can't find a really good use for teleport in late game.
    • Surge Useful... BUT NOT ENOUGH!!!

      Drugs are bad!!!

Hybrid Build

I was laying down on my bed when this idea popped into my head. How would Shyvana be if I played her as a hybrid? Well I tried and I've gotta tell you... Not big diference...

Shyvana does more damage with Flame Breath and Dragon's Descent, but when you wait for the cooldown to end, her basic attacks deal less damage.

Hybrid Items




This build aims to give Shyvana both Attack Damage with Ability Power, plus Attack Speed (of course). Hextech Gunblade offers Shyvana both Lifesteal, and Spell Vamp, wich is quite useful in combination with Burnout, Flame Breath and Dragon's Descent.
More power yes, but without some Armor and Magic Resist, Shyvana is more squishy.

My advice: If you ever find yourselves playing against noobs, then go for this build.
