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.
This is my season 3 build that works best for me people say Shyvana got a hard Nerf form season 3 and i just don't see the issue that people have with her as I do so well with her with this very build i came up with hope it helps the players who love Shyvana as much as i do.
Ps. Helpful hint if u don't have the runes buy all tier 1 runes then work your way up too tier 3. These runes are a must and really help clear jungle without a leash on red :)
Pros / Cons
Best base stats in the game (OP)
Incredible damage output
Fastest clear in the GAME
Outscales 90% of the junglers
Turret Diving is fun :)
No real gap closer until 6
ZERO CC (Ult shouldn't be used for CC)
Probably easiest champion to kite-Worst ganker in the game. Period.
Kind of team dependant
I love theses masteries they have worked great for me i did just change out the smite mastery as u will not smite that many times per game making the gold talent a waste would rather have another attack speed talent for the replacement.
Fury of the Dragonborn
Shyvana's melee attacks enhance her abilities.
Twin Bite - Reduces the cooldown by 0.5 seconds.
Burnout - Extends the duration by 1 second to a maximum of 6 seconds.
Flame Breath - Deals 15% of the ability's damage to debuffed targets.
Dragon's Descent - Attacks generate 2 Fury and Shyvana passively gains 1 Fury every 1.5 seconds while in human form
Max this second too Burnout!
Shyvana strikes twice on her next attack. The second attack will deal 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100 % of her attack damage as physical damage. Both attacks trigger On-Hit effects and Fury of the Dragonborn effects.
Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front of Shyvana. Each unit hit will be dealt on-hit effects and grant Fury twice.
MAX THIS FIRST FIRST!
During the next 3 seconds, Shyvana will deal 25 / 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 (+0.2 per bonus attack damage) magic damage each second to nearby enemies and her movement speed will be greatly increased by 30 / 35 / 40 / 40 / 50 %. Shyvana's movement speed bonus itself will be reduced multiplicatively by 15% for every second that passes.
Dragon Form: Shyvana now scorches the earth where she walks, leaving a trail of fire for 5 seconds that will continually deal magic damage to enemies that pass over it.
Max This third really only used for the 15% armor reduction the dmg on this skill with this build isnt good
Shyvana unleashes a fireball forward in a line that will hit the first enemy it hits, dealing 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+60% of ability power) magic damage to it and reducing their armor by 15% for 4 seconds.
Dragon Form: Flame Breath engulfs all units in a cone in front of Shyvana.
Max This when available!
Passive: Shyvana reinforces her scales, increasing her armor and magic resistance by 10 / 15 / 20. These defensive bonuses are doubled while in Dragon Form.
Active: Shyvana transforms into a dragon and dashes to a target location. Enemies along her path take 200 / 300 / 400 (+70% of ability power) magic damage and are pushed toward her target location. Shyvanna must have a full fury bar to use this spell.
While in Dragon Form, Shyvana will lose 6 fury every second. Once her Fury bar is empty, she will return to her normal state.
If you feel ur team has the upper hand on lanes- I start Wraiths, Red, Golems, Wraiths, Blue, Wolves and last Wraiths and sometimes Golems Then i back get items go to wraiths/or Golems gank bot if needed or go wolves then gank mid/top if needed i also like to steal golems from enemy junglers and there wraiths as they give good source to recharge ult :) further more just rinse and repeat counter jungle when safe most time not worth it cause its dangerous and can ruin your game if ganked also shyvana is a terrible ganker to really shine is to let the enemy push then gank also counter gank is wat shyvana is all about to stop the enemy jungler from ganking try to predict when and where there going to gank with this guide u can easily kill someone under there turret while there low on life or running away hope this helps.
If you feel ur team lacks on lanes- I start at red with or without leash go straight to bot if ur on blue side for a gank normally wont kill them but will hurt there adc helps team on lane phases If on purple side gank top instead again more in likely u wont kill them just will help team on lane phase then i golems, wraiths, proceed to gank mid then wolves, then take blue never give the first blue to mid as ur ganking is greatly increased the faster u get ur ult the exp is better benefit to the team for u to get it first after first blue never take it again always give it to ur mid then u back to base then go to gank who ever is struggling hope this helps on ur pattern just rinse repeat
Counter Jungling Start Option
If u counter jungle start. tell team to invade look at there jungler and invade blue/red know what they need. Start with armor instead of weapon will help sustain dmg also make sure the team stays to take the buff then go get the same buff that u stole from them so they dont get urs if practiced correctly this will be the best way to go hope this helps.
