Introduction

Half-Dragons are the forbidden scions of humans and shape-shifting dragons. There have been few in the world, as they are typically hunted down by their draconian relatives. The scarce and reclusive dragons left on Runeterra find it disgusting to mix their blood with the frivolous and violent lesser races. However, there are those who become fascinated with humans, such as Shyvana's father. It was to Prince Jarvan IV's surprise when his hunt led him to a legendary young half-dragon. She wept over the dead, mutilated corpse of her father, murdered for her existence. Something in Jarvan was moved by Shyvana's plight. Together they plotted revenge against the mighty dragon resposible. The assault cost the Demacian Prince many men, and nearly his life, but ultimately Shyvana and he prevailed.

The experience changed the both of them. Shyvana lost her place in the world, left alone to be hunted by those dragons who discovered her existence. Because of what he'd seen, Jarvan lost his taste for the hunt and wished to return home as protector of his people. Jarvan IV, as Crown Prince of Demacia, offered Shyvana a place as a noble warrior in the ranks of the elite guard. Out of gratitude and necessity, she accepted. Since their return to Demacia, Shyvana has proven herself to be a fierce and powerful soldier. She blends her fiery draconian blood with her adopted principles of justice. She revels in the power she now feels in the human world and there are few who do not quake before her in combat. However, by and large there remains only one place for glorious battle. When Jarvan joined the League of Legends, it wasn't long before Shyvana answered the call as well.

''I have the blood of dragons in my veins. I am fear to all who oppose me.''
- Shyvana

Tips

Shyvana's abilities all benefit from attacking units. As a result, Attack Speed items are more valuable on her than most champions.
Flame Breath is great to level-up against difficult lane opponents.
Burnout is an ideal choice for jungling. Monsters will be hit by the full duration, and the speed boost improves her ganking potential.
It can be valuable to purchase one of the items that can slow enemies: Phage, Frozen Mallet, Trinity Force, or Entropy.

Summoner Spells

Summoner Spells

The good ones


Flash:
I take Flash for escaping, chasing, and lots of other things. Flash my prefered Summoner Spell, because it is very viable.

Cleanse:
I usually don't take Cleanse, because of my Mercury's Treads. With Mercs I am not soo liable to CC, but if you take some other Boots, Cleanse is a good choice.

Ignite:
I use all my abilities to shut down this AD Carry, but unfortunetely he/she trys to escape with Flash or Ghost. NO WAY !!! Cast ignite and burn them into dust :D

Exhaust:
Exhaust is another good choice for your Summoner Spells. Shyvana has got no natural cc and this slow will help you a lot in teamfights or at chasing their carrys. Or if you focus that fed Shaco or Ashe, she won't do that Damage anymore and it is very easy to kill him/her.

Teleport:
Take it if you are going solo top. It will help you controlling your lane and gives your team Map Awareness, which is very important.

The OK ones


Ghost:
I took Ghost into the Ok ones, cause Shyvana doesn't benefit much from it. She has her great mobility and Movement Speed so Flash is a much better Summoner Spell for her.

Heal:
I wouldn't take it. You won't have HP problems, because you have your Wirggle's Lantern, that has got Life Steal and your build, which gives you enough survivability.

Smite:
Only take it if you are going to Jungle.

The bad ones



Clairvoyance:
You aren't the Tank or the Supporter

Revive:
Don't take it, the CD is toooooo high.

Clarity:
No Mana = No Clarity
