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.
If you ask why you should play this champion.. YOU CAN TURN INTO A FURIOUS DRAGON THAT CAN MELT EVERYONE IN YOUR WAY!! :D Shyvana is very different from other melee fighters. There are many possible ways to her her, as a magic dps dealer, pure ad, or offtank. It may take a while before completely mastering how to use all her skills because of her sexy passive and her ultimate(one of the most entertaining skills :P) giving boosts for all the skills. These are some builds that I found pretty damn successful with this champion.
Burnout has amazing aoe dps, making it definite first skill to max. This skill is what allows Shyvana to jungle and clear out big wave of minions very very fast.
Twin Bite should be maxed next for more burst damage. Both hits from this skill trigger hit-on effect, meaning Madred Bloodrazor and Wit's End will help the burst damage even more!
Flame Breath does help when facing other champions, but do not relay on the damage of it. Use it first before you hit with Twin Bite.
Dragon's Decent is very neat for number of things.
1. Passively gives 25 armor and magic resist at lvl 3
2. ^Bonus is doubled in dragon form
3. Gives extra effect for rest of the skills
4. YOU CAN TURN INTO A DRAGON WHILE CARRYING YOUR OPPONENTS WITH YOU!
I like starting at either red with leash or wraiths. Clear the wolves next than the mini golems.
As for blue buff, giving it to ap carry at mid is much better since you don't really need the cdr too.
You could start ganking any lanes that you see enemy champions that are over-extending even a little. If your teammate uses exhaust, flash in and execute him/her.

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.
