Hello everybody ;)

In this Guide i'll show you how to deal with Shyvana as Off-Tank, Shyvana is an awesome Tanky-DPS Champion who has great survivability thanks to her Ultimiate passiv.

The first Build is the Main Build (most expensive one) and the second Build is more for faster games but you will still have good survivabilities and still a nice damage output with it. In the second build i ll show you how I would jungle with her (under construction).

Here's a short story about Shyvana by Riot (I quote that from the LoL Mainpage).


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!”

Runes, Masteries & Summoner Spells


For the first build i picked an armor pen. + armor & mag. ressist Setup. In combination with that Itembuild you will be able to do alot damage even at tanks.

For the second build replaced armor pen. for attack speed because a higher attack speed gives you the advantage to have a better use of your passive, btw. in that build you need to deal alot more damage to keep your HP high (with Bloodthirster).


I chosed for the first build 21 9 0 because of the great damage boost and a slight defense upgrade which suits perfectly for that build.

For the 2nd build i use the 21 8 1 because of the summoner Spell Ghost.

Summoner Spells

Summoner Spells which are recommended for her are Ignite; Flash; Ghost and of course Exhaust.

Flash: With flash you have a great escape mechanism and you can catch up enemies easily to finish them.

Ignite: Great finisher, nice extra damage - what do you want more?

Ghost: You can run faster :D - great to chase & to escape.

Exhaust: a CC - nothing to say more.
