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.
Hello fellow Summoners, my name is LordPookster and this is my first build. I plan on updating this build when items are updated, added, if Shyv gets nerfed or buffed, or if I change things up. One thing that I have noticed is that two of Shyv's abilities are magic damage ( her "w" and her "E". her ult also uses magic damage.). When I finally noticed this, I altered my build to this build.
For my marks i get third tier Mark of Stength. The reason behind this decision is that Shyvana needs flat AD for her early game. That is the same reason I have my third tier Quint. of Strength. The reason my Glyphs and my Seals are the same is because Shyv is generally a pretty slow attacker and her "Q" gets cooldown for every attack she deals so thats why I have third tier Alacrity Glyph's and Seals. With the help of Recurve bow and Madred's Blood razor, Shyv's attack speed at 18 is 67.23.
This is a no Duh moment for me. i obviously went on the damage and tanky side of masteries.
Items are essential to any good Shyvana player. I get Doran's Blade first because it helps in early game. Then boots because their boots. But i generally get Mercury Treads because of the Tenacity. If i don't get those i get the Bezerker Greaves for the attack speed. Madreds seemed like an easy decision for me because it was armor and AD, but the BloodRazor made more sense becuase it increased my Attack Speed to over 1%. For the Gunblade, I decided, if Jax can do it, so can Shyv. it gives her AD and AP at the same time. Win Win. Warmogs Armor was a weird idea that a friend gave me because he saw that I was struggling to stay alive in lane so he told me to get Warmogs and I haven't looked back since. Another friend told me that if you want more magic resist and your an AD Champ, the best item to get was the Maw of the Malmortious. I would have to agree with him. This item gives you a sheild, AD, and magic resist. No matter what, you will most likely have at least 1 AP champ and this kinda negates their attacks. By this time if you havent sold Dorans, just do it because its pointless after you hit 18. Finally get your Lich Bane or Trinity Force, I get Lich bane becuase it gets you up to 150 AP and with your ult doing 200 + your 150 it will be a force to be reconded with.
Get your fire spin first and upgrade it to its full by 9, then get your Twin Bite up at 13, your ult at 16 then fire breath at 18.
