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.
Passive: Fury of the Dragonborn
Shyvana's melee attacks enhance her abilities.
Twin Bite - Reduces the cooldown by 0.5 seconds.
Burnout - Extends the duration by 1 second to a maximum of 6 seconds.
Flame Breath - Deals 15% of the ability's damage to debuffed targets.
Dragon's Descent - Attacks generate 2 Fury and Shyvana gains 1 Fury every 1.5 seconds while in human form.
A huge list of passives for every ability. This is the reason you wish to build attack speed early.
Q: Twin Bite
Next auto attack hits twice, second hit deals 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100 % of total attack damage
Dragon Form: second hit deals aoe damage in front of her
Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front Shyvana.
Cooldown 10/9/8/7/6 seconds
A very strong ability which allows for three attacks at once similar to Trundle's Rabid Bite. In teamfights you will be able to spam this as it comes up very quickly due to your passive.
Shyvana deals 25 / 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 (+20% of bonus attack damage) magic damage per second to nearby enemies and moves 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 % faster for 3 seconds. Shyvana's Movement Speed bonus is reduced over time.
Dragon Form: Burnout scorches the earth, continuing to damage enemies that stand on it.
Cooldown 12 seconds
Turn this on as soon as you enter a fight, it stays on the longer you are attacking someone. It also increses your mobility so you can return to lane faster with this ability. Helps you farm very quickly and melts champions throughout the game.
E: Flame Breath
Shyvana unleashes a fireball that deals 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+60% of ability power) magic damage and burns 15% of their armor for 4 seconds.
Dragon Form: Flame Breath engulfs all units in a cone in front of her.
Cooldown 12/11/10/9/8 seconds
In human form this ability is only good if the person is in your face as not only is it a skillshot but most importantly, most of the damage comes after you have marked the target from autoattacking. You do 15% of the abilities damage when you autoattack them with this as well as the 15% armor debuff. However when you are in Dragon form, the cone should cover their entire team. As soon as you enter dragon form, fire this.
R: Dragon's Descent
Active: Shyvana transforms into a dragon and takes flight to a target location. Enemies along her path take 200 / 300 / 400 (+70% of ability power) magic damage and are knocked toward her target location.
Passive: Shyvana reinforces her scales, increasing her Armor and Magic Resist by 15/20/25. Defensive bonuses are doubled in Dragon Form.
Cost 6 fury a second and max fury to activate
Makes her very difficult to 1v1 with full fury as she can either chase or get away with her dragon form, her damage mitigation's passive doubles and all her abilities get buffed. She also knocks enemies towards her, which basicially in team fights lines them up for you to burst down.
