Shyvana the Half-Dragon
"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!''
- Shyvana"--League Lore
Shyvana is quite a unique champ due to her being versatile, in the fact that she can be both and Ap carry or an Ad carry or even a flipin tank if you really wanted to. She can play the role as the oh **** there is a dragon or she can play the assassin role were you come up from river and fly out
This runes are set for an Ad carry.
Marks are attack dmg for you Q (Twin Bite)
Seals are armor so that you can take a hit and be extremely aggressive in your lane
Glyphs are so that you can have an advantages of cooldowns these can be replaced by Magic resist, or by whatever you prefer remember it's a game to have in.
These masteries are set for the point of going Dps dumping 21 in offense is so that you can get the ap bonus and increase your Magic and Attack by 4% which is pretty nice since Shyvana use both.
Shyvana loves attack speed this build suits it well while also being able to deal dmg. Her Q (Twin bite) Cd is reduced after each melee attack, as her W (Burn out) gets a longer duration, and your ult or R (Dragon's Decent)
Maxing twin bite first and burn out second grants you the ability to chase and pound peoples face in porblem? i think not. Your E is kinda useful doing a little dmg and knocking armor by 15% very nice...
Exhaust and ignite work perfectly due to your masteries giving you a bonus 10 ap when ignite is on Cd and plus do u really wanna tower dive? Exhaust works great due to burnout with that and exhaust you should be able to get up close and personal when they are trying to run away
Shyvana can jungle with out smite exhaust and ignite you can use flash and smite if you aren't comfortable with her yet
Golems-Gank bot-banshees-wolves-gank top-back buy-red-gank mid-break mid tower unless stoped-blue-gank top and push-gank bot-wolves-banshees-golems-dragon(Ironic)
Pros / Cons
1. Your a dragon
2. Your Q hurts like hell
3. Your still a dragon
4. Burnout is incredible
Your ultimate pulls enemies towards you making you not a smart choice to tower dive due to the fact that you can kite them hard. When ganking or trying to save some either pull towards or away from allies it's very easy to aim
Burn out and q and basic attack normal stuff you don't have to worry about mana due to the fact that you are a dragon
Break turrets, help your team, and your a ******** dragon so play like one. Good luck and have fun
