First I have to say is that this is my first guide, and the most I do is because I want to remember it. When i bought Shyvana I had real great scores the last five battles, so I thought to share how did it worked. (More or less it has been 22/5/9 average score)

Attack speed is the most important thing for Shyvana, because of her passive skill. We can improve it with Greater Gliphs of Alacrity, but you can even make it better changing the Marks of magic penetration (wich is really good for farming and lasthiting champs with Burnout) for attack speed marks. This can be a tanky champion, so I decided to have some extra HP with Quintesences and Seals.

You have to play a similar style as Nidalee, but with one different point: DESTROY EVERYTHING. That's why I think the magic penetration is needed, as improving the summoner spells for lasthitting and scaping before towerdiving.

Probably the most fail chapter on this guide (thinking that whole guide is). As I said Shyvana is similar to Nidalee, but she has no range normal attacks, so she needs boots for starting plus 3 HP potions. Then improve to berserker's greaves and try to get some more attack and movement speed with Phantom Dancer, don't forget the life steal wich can be adquired with Wriggle's Lantern and in late game replaced with Bloodthirster. At late game you become a bit squishy, so Sunfire cape is great for defense as for offense, you also can save your life with Guardian Angel. If you continue having a lot of money don't even think on wasting it at Infinity Blade, just do it.

Skill sequence

This is not a very important chapter, just pick at the begining Burnout for farming as hell, then Flame breath for harashing enemies, and al level three Twin bite if you need to turn and inesperated battle to your epic win. The nexts levels you have to focus on Burnout and Dragon's Descent, following the order at Twin bite and Flame breath as you wish.

Summoner spells

Why not Exhaust nor Ghost? Well, Shyvana is a really fast champion, you wont need it, but you will need Ignite for be sure of a kill and Flash for some epic scapes...

There are those few dragons in Runeterra who have mastered the intense magical energies that course through their unique anatomies, evolving into an elusive Celestial Dragon. These powerful and enigmatic creatures spend most of their time hidden away from the lands of men. However, there are those who find themselves drawn to civilization and who take on human forms to immerse themselves in the world of humans. Occasionally, one finds itself drawn to the spirit of a human and they have relations. Sometimes, in the slimmest of odds, the union will bear fruit and that offspring will be one of the few half-dragons to have graced Runeterra. Shyvana is one such creature, born to a simple Demacian farm-girl and her Celestial Dragon father. Left to be raised by her mother, her oddities were something that couldn't be hidden from her community, though she was protected by her family. Once her family had perished in disaster, she was left alone for the first time - truly alone. Shyvana quickly became an outsider and it wasn't long before the community's fear began to put her in danger. Facing mortal danger at the business end of an angry mob, she was rescued by the traveling noble, Jarvan Lightshield. The noble was a man who strangely knew exactly what she was and took her under his wing. It wasn't long before she was offered a chance to use her natural skills in the service of Demacia, as Jarvan initiated her as one of the elite guard. Following Jarvan into the League of Legends was only natural.

Shyvana is a fierce warrior, with the blood of one of the most powerful magical predators in all creation flowing through her veins. Unlike some of her fellows, she is a subdued personality - somber, cool, and collected. However, when the moment strikes, her draconian heritage manifests and there are few that can stare her in the eyes and not feel the primal urge to flee.

''By the blood of my father, I will end you!''
