Shyvana Jungle Guide
Hi guys, I'm Straycious from the Philippines and this is my first time creating a guide for one of my favorite champions in LoL. Shyvana, one of the best jungler, and counter jungler champion in the game. On this guide i will show you the path of building the item together with acceptable reason why I use this or that. This is how I build Shyvana because this is how I always win using her. It means this is just my personal choice for her so please don't vote down if this build doesn't work for you with just one game or two. Thank you very much!
Pros and cons
No mana, low cd for skills
Can tower dive with proper items
Fun to play with!
Can't hardly support if shut down early
Since Shyvana is a jungler we need to start with Hunter's Machete and 5 Health Potions and head directly to the red buffs. Ask for assistance (atleast the midlaner) to help minimizing the damage that you are going to take, use Smite to last hit the monster. Now you have two options once you're done with the red buffs: either gank the middle lane or the bottom lane. Ganking the middle lane, your objective is to kill the enemy on the middle lane (obviously :D) but one of the other reason is for that champion to use their summoner spells for the advantage of your midlane teammate. Most of the cases that I have encountered, they are going to use flash to have them escape the gank. It will be a huge advantage for your teammate. If you are lucky enough to hit your auto attack, that will be a good news because you can still reach the champion with your Burnout and get a kill. Remember that you have your buff so it means that once you hit the enemy champion you'll have to chance to slow him and kill him totally.
If the gank fails it's ok, it's not the end of the world yet. Now you can focus on jungling again take the wraiths and the wolves together with the golem. You can take the blue buffs as well or you can coordinate with your midlaner and ask him if he wants to last hit the monster for the buff or not. Once you're done you can gank top lane or you can visits the enemy's jungle. Check if they have the red buff, if so, get it and go home for you to buy your items. You may want to buy Madred's Razors and Boots of Speed and some wards for you to jungle easily. Keep farming and ganking and always check who needs help or hold thier lanes.
Mid Game Scenario
OK, this is the time where Shyvana will shine, most of the time it depends on you what will be the outcome of the game. If your allies are winning their lanes, keep farming if not, go for help. Once you have Dragon's Descent always look for a gank or ask questions to your allies where to push. In this way you won't waste your ulti. Ganking will help you build your items faster. But if you team is losing, try to farm a bit more and always use Smite. remember there is a +10 gold everytime you use smite because of the Summoner's Resolve . Again, I can not emphasize how important it is to use Smite every after its cooldown.
Late Game Scenario
This part... uhh ??? unstoppable!! Yeah you heard it right! Once you've gotten the items from Sunfire Cape to Warmog's Armor she's gonna be the champion you wished you never chosen to fight as an enemy. With the items I have shown she will be tanky, and yeah with Frozen Mallet she's gonna slow the s*&^ out of your enemies. So your enemies has flash?? yeah i got Dragon's Descent and again will slow the *whatever* out of you!! Buuuurn! I mean freeeeezzzzze! owww whatever! ^_^
There you go, I know i still miss a lot please send me feedback on parts that i need to improve. again this is my first guide and i will update this every other day or every week to make it better ayt?
