Hi guys! I'm kind of new to LoL and well... I kind of fell in-love with Shyvana, 'cuz she transforms into a dragon. I've played quite a few games with her already, wins and losses, you know.

Anyway, I'm doing pretty decent with Shyvana. I can easily conquer my lane and easly rip apart enemy champions in the late game, while still tanking their damage but... I'm only level 15, so I guess, maybe I'm still playing as a newbie and I want some expert advice from you guys, on how to properly build Shyvana.

Here's my item build (in sequence, potions not included):
-Doran's Blade
-Boots of Speed
-Phage
-Mercury Treads
-Frozen Mallet
-Madred's Razor
-Warmog's Armor
-Madred's Bloodrazor
-Wit's End
-Sell Doran's Blade for The Bloodthirster

That's basically my build for my lovely Shyvana.
I know Mobafire hosts numerous "guides" on Shyvana, but I'm looking for other stuff as well, plus, I don't really understand all the "technical" stuff in the guides (I did take "Wit's End" from one of the guides). Maybe an idea or two. Maybe something is wrong with the sequence of my item buying.

Sorry for my wall of words, but thanks for those who are willing to help out.

Bloodrazor isn't too good on her. I usually play her in Jungle so I get a wriggles. I think wriggles would probably be good in lane too since it has armor / sustain which she lacks, try building it instead of Doran's and see how it goes!

You're doing it right by building her pretty tanky for mid game with the Mallet. If you're doing REALLY well early you could also go Trinity. I also like going Warmog's then Trinity. I think your build's pretty decent besides the Bloodrazor though.

The point is she needs to be able to be pretty tanky but also deal damage since she has no CC to threaten the team with.
Thanks to Minho for my sig!

Your build is fine, but you should buy your Wit's End a bit earlier (delay either Frozen Mallet or Mercury's Treads. Also, drop Madred's Bloodrazor and replace it with Randuin's Omen, you have almost no armor or magic resist in your current build.

Funny because Bloodrazor is really good on Shyv.

But you'd have to be ahead by quite a bit if you want to use it :P

Warmogs + Frozen mallet is a bit overkill, esp because you're not buying Atmas.
