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.
I have used Shyvana since the day she came out and haven't looked back. I have been working on a good build for her ever since then trying various builds and item types which is why unlike some other people I didn't make a guide the day she came out or the day after, this guide has had a lot of thought put into it and a lot of testing with various items. Please do not downvote the guide without actually trying it.
This Guide is not only for Jungle with other Summoner Spells its also a nice lane Guide
Let's start with Runes.
My runes are:
Greater Mark of Desolation
Greater Seal of Alacrity
Greater Glyph of Alacrity
Greater Quintessence of Desolation
Greater Quintessence of Alacrity
I choose that runes because you got a high dmg lategame and with a high atk speed the 18% lifesteal of Wriggle´s Lantern is enought. And you make a very high Dps in Teamfights.
I play Shyvana with a high Damage output. Because this i choosed 21:9
another build is on 2. Page
I start with a Cloth Armor and 5 Health Potions. You are a jungler, and i like to start at Golems and clear the whole jungle in the speed of light and rush a Madred's Razors.
After my Madreds i buy Wrigglers for the lifesteal at lowlevel.
Why do I skill what i skill?
Burnout is the most important skillfor Shyvana as a jungler. It has a great AOE damage and movement speed buff. You can clear the jungle with it nearly as fast as a phoenix Udyr and it helps you ganking. Overall a great skill.
I max Twin Bite second, it is a great burst spell and scales good with your AD. I max it second because it doesnt get much stronger from level 1 to 5.
I max twinbite last, because it doesn't deal much dmg at all. You should only use to make your auto hits and Q stronger. Keep in mind, always use E before you use your Q!
Your ulti makes you to what you are, a mighty dragon. When you play Shyvana as a jungler you should always use your ult for ganks in early game. In the late game your ult is a great iniator for teamfights. It makes everyone of your spells to AOE spells, so make sure to stand just in your enemys, so everything hits them
My favourite summoner spells
Smite. Ofcourse you are a jungler. Shyvana is too squishy in the beginning that she could clear the jungle without it, so pick Smite for Shyvana jungle.
One of my favourite summoner spells. Why? Because you have good escape and chase tool with it. Ganking under level 6 with shyvana is but with flash you can just flash in and burn their face.
For laneing you can you
Ignite And Flash
