Sup Spike. There's a mistake in Gank and Tank build's notes, saying that we should take Visage instead of BotRK, but there's apparently no BotRK in this build.

Hi, Spike! It is me again. I was wondering: What do you think about the new Sanguine Blade on Shyvana? I seriously thought about it and used it as a third item, after Titanic Hydra and jg item and found it really good, specially for counter-jungling. What are your thoughts about it?? :D

Informative guide, thanks. It covers just about anything a new Shvana player needs to know

how come you start w? I went in practice tool and found that e does more damage. Is this outdated? because Im pretty sure I read that you went w because celerity gave you more damage, so im guessing that this was before celerity was nerfed. Also do you have an op.gg I can follow?

Hello, Spyke. I am your stalker a fan of your work and I've been playing a lot with Shyvana. Acording to you we could take drake already at level 4, though it was risky because we would be really low and could die should the enemy come. However, I tried jg after those changes in the jungle at patch 9.23 and I was astonished at how fast Shyvana was growing. Before I would need to take red-blue-gromp and 2 mini wolves to get lvl 3, now I don't even need the wolves and, to make thing more interesting, just farming I managed to be 2 levels ahead of an enemy Rengar. To make it even better, taking the first drake, an infernal drake that was supposed to be the hardest to take, was astonishingly easy and fast at lvl 5. I wonder if it would be that easy lvl 4, but given at how fast Shyvana evolved just by farming (and taking the enemy chickens), is way easy to take 5 before going drake.

Now with those changes in the jungle, don't you think that was somewhat an indirectly great buff for a champion that take Dragons with ease such as Shyvana?

Hello :) Yes, I think the pre-Season 10 changes mean that Shyvana is 'back'! The main thing is the changes to jungle XP and camp spawning timers, so that being a good jungle farmer is now actually rewarded. Taking enemy chickens is a good strategy, someone like Rengar is always going to leave those at levels 1-2 because he takes them so slow.

Either level 4 or level 5 for first drake seems good to me, Shyvana can do it at either level if she went back already (for example, Hunter's Talisman + Hunter's Machete + Dagger should do it fast and safe). The exact timing of going there in a game is obviously going to depend on your vision, your knowledge of where the enemy jungler is, and whether your bot lane has lane priority. So I should say in the guide that Shyvana is "looking" to take first drake any time from level 4 onwards.

I have aimed to update the guide for Pre-Season 10 fully when the pre-season started on 20 November but there's probably parts that are still out-of-date, if you spot anything specific please do let me know. I also plan to update some of the videos shown, but need to find good current examples of Shyvana play - if anyone wants to suggest a good Shyvana video in comments, please do!

I also think that you are right. They lowered hp of the dragons and the game is more based on dragons. This is indirectly a shyvana buff. The only con is cloud drake is useless.

yeah, only good for her passive, though the cloud drake dragon soul do help on move speed and increase her DPS after ult for a while.

Not gonna lie, this is the longest guide I ever read. However, this has basically everything a shyvanna player could ask for. I think we will see more of her in season 10 due to the massive dragon changes. AP nuke shyvanna is going to be nuts when those changes hit the live servers.

not gonna lie but people prefer to play shyvana as an AP jungler now instead of AD but i've seen her hybrid

Late game Shyvana wants to tank up, you can even sell items and switch to a full tank build.

Ok so with the scuttle crab rework I cannot seem to have a healthy farm. I used to use scuttle to heal back up but since it spawns later im not sure what to do. Any suggestions?

Shyvana shouldn't need to heal up if you keep in motion around the jungle camps - kite them slightly, let the Krugs block each other a bit, and you should take less damage.

You can also back early - as soon as you have 350 gold - get a Hunter's Talisman and then you can stay healthy in the jungle for a long time.

Love your guide here and Shyvana is definitely one of my favorite champs to play. Just for ***** and giggles, can you make a top lane shyvana guide? i want it to work so badly lol

Very sorry but I don't have time to write a top lane guide (it's a lot of time to create it all with formatting, and keep it updated). I think adding top lane to this would make it too long. You could write one? It's not so different, my main concern would be that Shyvana in top lane is easily countered by a ranged ADC, and a Shyvana who can't farm will fall behind. Back in seasons 5-6 Shyvana was played a lot in top lane, especially competitively.

Shyvana can also be played mid - I'm totally not sure why we don't see her more in mid lane. She can counter most popular mid lane champions, and she can roam easily from mid lane and bring the same power she brings as a Jungle Shyvana ganking after level 6. And obviously, in mid lane, she should get to level 6 first.

I am sorry, but how you describe AP Shyvana is totally wrong and misleading. What works best right now for AP Shyvana is go maximum damage possible and just simply not using ult to jump into enemies, but rather to reposition for the perfect E. If you jump into them you just die and loose a lot of damage. If you are at maximum E range you can safely poke them, especially if you have 45% CDR.

Please give evidence for the build and playstyle you are saying is better on AP Shyvana - either from statistics or videos of good players.

URF mode you are right of course. Outside URF mode, I want to see some evidence and will consider updating the guide if you have something good.

Please note the guide currently reads:

"With an AP build, Shyvana's positioning is different. She is aiming to use her high mobility from W (which can be almost constantly available when she has 40% CDR) to stay out of range of enemy abilities, and apply poke damage with E. "

Not totally sure what you are saying different from that?
