With the introduction of the new Update for Season 3 I will have to get on-date about changes, as soon as im ready to post all changes that will be made to my Shyvana guide I will post them here =)

First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who made this possible. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! i never thought this could be possible but I made it to top one :D

Shyvana is a melee champion, she can be from, a very good tanky dps, to a full damage carry, my build always depends on the enemy team, but usually go for tanky dps (like shown in the first build). She has great mobility and you can escape from death easily with your ultimate ( Dragon's Descent) if you are in trouble.
She uses no mana so you can spam your abilities like if there was no tomorrow, so farming for creeps is extreamly easy no matter wich is you´r build.
Shyvana is also well known for her jungling speed, you can take jungle creeps very quick compared to some junglers but she doesnt have any natural CC or strong ganking but with exhaust you will easily be able to pick up some kills and help your teammates in their lanes if you choose to take the jungling path.

I think that covers most of the introduction part so far, im Redwarewolf and today il try to teach you the way i play Shyvana. English isnt my native language so please excuse any grammatical erroes i could of made, i think the guide is still highly readable :)

Before reading this guide i highly recommend you to watch this video, explains lots of things about Shyvana. Thanks to CiderHelm for the video.

Some of my matches with diferent builds:

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!''

For runes i have diferent choices according to the game:


Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage I use this for a strong early game, good early game, good mid and end game ;)

Greater Quintessence of Health Extra health for tankier early game, always helpfull


Greater Seal of Attack Speed If you are going for more damage, AS means getting Twin Bite quicker, Burnout lasting longer and getting Dragon's Descent earlier.

Greater Seal of Armor If you are going more tanky, extra armour always, always helpfull.


Greater Glyph of Magic Resist If you are going tankier to resist those AP users

Greater Glyph of Attack Speed Same as the Seals of alacrity, procs with passive and all skills.


Greater Mark of Attack Damage More AD means a stronger early game, more kills, more fed, more wins :D

Greater Mark of Health More health in early game, with the quintessence´s and the rest of the tank runes you´l be like a nuclear tank, lots of damage and undestructible.

Summoner Spells

One of my favourite parts, because i never know what to choose with any new champion i try

With shyvana its always been the same summoner spells:

The 1001 uses spell, you can do anything you can imagine with it, escape, land that last hit on that 5 Hp champion, use your ignite on a champion under the tower with really low health to get that kill, open a can of sardines, anything you want ;)

One of the best spells in my opinion to get those sneaky quicky champions that always escape from you when you are about to kill them, killing more champions means more gold and experience wich means a fed Shyvana wich means GG ;)

Great choice for Shyvana since she has no natural CC from any of her abilities nor passive or anything, extreamly helpfull to get a kill and stop that champion from running away from you (Unless its a Master Yi with his ultimate :/ ). Later on with the Frozen Mallet or the Trinity Force depending of your choice, you´l have enough CC and damage to kill any champion and preventing them from escape.

A must have if you are gonna jungle, makes it quicker and some extra gold every time you use it. I never tryed but i think Shyvana can still perform really well without it.

Some viable choices can be:

Its a nice spell to escape or kill a fleeing champion, i dont personally recommend it because Burnout gives us the movement speed we need to escape or catch anyone, but still a nice spell :)

Can be a viable choice if the enemy team if full of CC, usually taking Mercury's Treads you wont need Cleanse, but if the game demands it, can still be very helpfull ;)

Please dont take or else!

I think i dont really have to explain this but well, Shyvana
doesn´t use mana so Clarity is totally useless, leave it for supports. Nuff said

You are not the support for the love of Christ! I seen Shyvana´s taking this spell and saying it was to check bushes... FACEPALM!

Hello my dear readers, somehow while making this guide i managed to forget making a section explaining masteries, im sorry, thats why now im making it, il just link the 3 masteries builds i use for every case :)

Tanky DPS!


During the game we will be going quite tanky but dont forget that its just a survival tactic, we still want to deal a nice ammount of damage and thats why i focus on offense mainly, the extra health from the Defensive tree is to survive longer and have a lil advantage early game.
In the masteries build i took Vampirism i want to quote that its optional, i like the extra lifesteal, and now that it has been nerfed, %3 its not a bad ammount but you can take Havoc instead the damage increase its quite nice, not huge, but nice :)
Happens the same with Resistance and Hardiness , maxing one or the other its up to you to think about and see what is the enemy team choosing, so think carefully ;)

Full DPS!


What changes here? Well since we are going for more damage instead of tankyness, we take Havoc for the damage increase percentage. I max out Hardiness and Resistance here since we wont be having enough masteries for the extra health from Veteran's Scars and the maxed out Durability combo.

Jungler :D


Well the only big change compared to the other builds is Summoner' Resolve, like every other jungle, i take it for the extra gold from Smite, maybe its a lil ammount of gold, but its a few extra potions it lets me buy in early game, BUT if you dont like it, you are free to change that. I took the extra health for surviving longer in the jungler and of course fights early game just like in the tanky dps build :)

Skill Explanation

This is your passive, basically it procs with each auto atack you make.

Twin Bite´s Cooldown is reduced by 0,5 seconds with every auto atack.
Burnout The duration will be extended by 1 second with each auto atack you make, to a maximum of 6 seconds.
Flame Breath Your Auto Atack's will deal 15% of the ability's damage to every debuffed enemy
Dragon's Descent Every auto atack will generate 2 of fury and Shyvana will pasively get fury while in human form.

Q: Shyvana strikes twice on her next attack, dealing physical damage on the second attack. The bonus damage is equal to 80/85/90/95/100% of Shyvana's Attack Damage.
Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front Shyvana.
No Cost
Range - 650

Picture showing twin bite skill

I max this skill after Burnout, use it to farm creeps or destroy towers quicker, one of your main damage sources, combined with Trinity Force it can be a devastating source of damage. Remember to activate it after you JUST auto atacked since it resets the auto-atacks meaning you will strike again right when you activate it.

W: Shyvana deals 25/40/55/70/85 (+0.2 AD) 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 ground beneath it, enemies on the scorched earth continue to take damage.
No Cost
Range - 325

Picture showing Burnout´s ratio

Picture showing how to use burnout while taking down towers to kill enemy creeps

Best tool to farm creeps, gives you a big movement speed for a short time, usefull to get a fleeing champion, if you are in dragon form, it works exactly like Singed´s Poison Trail. Use it when you are atacking a enemy tower and there are no champions nearby to damage the minions around you and possibly getting some extra gold from their deaths. Combined with Ghost can give you an extreamly high movement speed to escape from ganks or champions.

E: Shyvana unleashes a fireball that deals 80/125/170/215/260 (+0.6 AP) 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.
No Cost
Range - 925
Picture showing range of the spell

I often use this ability to last hit minions if you know its damage, sometimes i even killed fleeing champions with it, it may now make lots of damage but is still a helpfull skill. It can also be used to check brushes with it, just listen to the sound of the skill hitting the champion, you will identify it.

R: Passive - Shyvana reinforces her scales, increasing her Armor and Magic Resist by 15/20/25. Defensive bonuses are doubled in Dragon Form.

Active - Shyvana transforms into a dragon and takes flight to a target location. Enemies along her path take 200/300/400 (+0.7 AP) magic damage and are knocked toward her target location.
Cost - 6 Fury per second
Range - 1000

How to use this skill to escape will be explained in the next section

Use it whenever you want, especially in teamfights, its cooldown is related to the time and the ammount of atacks you perform so you can have it right away if you want to. Keep in mind it can knock your enemy to the direction you are using it, you can use this to push them to a friendly tower or away from a low health teammate. Once activated all your spells will have a much bigger AoE ratio and damage, use this to your advantage, in team fights it will allow you to take several enemies at same time, combined with the passive for the extra armour and magic resist you will become harder to kill. Dont be ashamed of using it to escape, the time it takes you to get it back again its extreamly short ;)

Your sequence should be like this:

>>> >>> >>> Spam till they are all dead!

Some viewers of this guide told me, ``Redwarewolf, you have lots of options in your guide, from full damage to full tank Shyvana to half tanky half dps, why not make a Shyvana jungling section aswell?´´ So i promissed them i will make that section and here it is, what is promissed is deubt. Il explain Shyvana´s jungling route with an image and relevancy or importance orders

Above, in the image, we have numbers and coloured circles, numbers represent the order of the jungling route and the colours of the circle´s represent the relevancy of each number

RED: Highly important
YELLOW: Not so important
GREEN: If you have nothing else to do...

Note: To start jungling buy Hunter's Machete and 5 health potions, the Hunter's Machete must be upgraded to Wriggle's Lantern when you have the gold!

We start at RED, wich is number 1, inmediately afterwards we should check for ganks, first on bottom wich is marked with number 2, then on mid lane wich is marked with number 3 and then on top, wich is marked as number 4. If we had at least one successfull gank we can choose to recall to base (number 5) or keep jungling in the order especified, first we take number 6 (Blue Golem) then 7 (Wolves) and so on though if you are low on health and you have gold from ganks, recalling is the best choice.
When you totally completed this route you can choose to do it all over again, counter jungle, protecting lanes or just keep ganking all the time.

Guide Top


Highly asked by readers I finally added the section counter jungling!
Counter-Jungling consists on ganking the enemy jungler on his own jungle, by doing so, the opposite jungler wont be able to gank and will be under leveled a lot, and that means GG ;)
Obviusly Counter-Jungling takes lots of practice, especially as a normal jungler because with
Shyvana you´l need to be quick to clear your minions in your jungle and quickly go to your enemies jungle to gank. I´l leave here in this section a few videos that will be good as examples to start a counter-jungling route.

Important note: DONT counter-jungle if you never jungled before, first try doing normal jungling and if you see you start to manage the basics of jungling, check the videos and give this counter jungling a go ;)

From DonnerFell, enjoy :)

From LethalProphecy, another great example for counter jungling with Shyvana

From stonewall008, a very nice counter jungling with Shyvana a MUST SEE if you want to counter jungle with her, as he said, very aggresive but extreamly efficient because of Shyvana´s speed jungling

Guide Top

How to Counter-Jungle each champion.

This section it being wrote down at the moment. Im recording videos for each jungler I meet in rankeds.

Guide Top


Shyvana isnt a strong ganker, but she compensates her lack of skill ganking with jungling speed, she is one of the quickest jungler`s Leauge of Legends has seen, sometimes she is so quick counter jungle her is not even an option because when you reach her red buff, she alraedy took it and already ganking your lanes killing everyone on her path, of course i will still teach you how to protect from counter jungling, how to counter jungle and protect your team mates at the same time, how? Well my dear friend, Vision Ward´s, but il cover that on the next section
Just a few ganks from some old matches i had, not every gank was perfect but helps to see how they are done :)

Basically if you want to gank you will totally need Exhaust unless you have a Phage right from the beggining, you have to run towards the enemy, and when there isnt much distance between you and the enemy turn on Burnout right away, the movement speed increase will help you reach your enemy and use that Exhaust on him, if you have managed to do all this, i promise he WILL be dead. If you are lvl 6 or more you can use Dragon's Descent on your advantage, throw it in top of the champions that are on low health to finish them off or either get infront of them and push them where ever you want them to be.

Guide Top


A good jungler knows how to counter jungle and defend himself from counter jungle aswell, in this image i will teach you some basics of this tricks and aswell how to ward properly

Like in the jungling section, here we also have colours:

RED: Extreamly important wards, buy the Purple wards so you can destroy the opposite team`s wards, warding Dragon and Baron Nashor is very important, the ammount of gold given by dragon is invaluable and the Baron buff can turn a match to your advantage, but if you gank the enemy team while they are doing Baron, that means two things, first, the Baron buff with an extra 300g for your team, and second, an Ace, with that ace you will be able to recover all those lost team fights and rush into their base destroy all their towers and inhibitors and maybe even win

ORANGE: Having wards in your buffs and opposite team`s buffs will let you know if the enemy jungler is either doing one of your buffs or one of his, that means... TIME TO GANK! you can head to where he is and surprise him stealing his buff and killing him. I really recommend having this wards

YELLOW: This 2 yellow wards, even though i marked them as yellow, they are very important for your team mates to protect them selves from ganks, this 2 wards should be taken care of by the players in the specific lanes, those 75g can save your life, trust me, or even kill that enemy jungler who tryed to gank you ;)

GREEN: Lower importance compared to the rest but totally usefull, knowing where your enemy team is, can be a great advantage, if you have all wards like showing on the image, they wont have place to hide, you will be able to gank them any time, any place, when ever you want and of course, this will lead to victory.

Guide Top

Escaping using Ultimate

Many friends asked me about how to use Dragon's Descent to escape from ganks, if you used Tryndamere, it works the same way as Spinning Slash. You can use it to escape or engage any situation, from ganking baron or escaping the enemy team or just trespassing walls to gank or get a kill quickly. The ultimate can also jump over towers. I will upload some screenshots about some examples on how to use the ultimate.

If the enemy team atacks you while you are doing Dragon and you see no choice but to escape, this is a very good method to use the ultimate and successfully escape from atackers or gank enemy team if they are doing Dragon

If you know the enemy team is doing baron, you can use the ultimate to gank them and steal their baron with help from your team, your high AoE while in dragon form while let you kill a few champions while atacking baron, using the ward from Wriggle´s Lantern on the baron zone to see Baron´s life, will help you sucessfully steal baron and initiate the gank in the right moment. Ultimate can also be used to escape a gank from the river same way as shown in the last picture

At this point you can get quite creative on how to use Dragon´s Descent to escape from enemy or simply throw yourself into the fight. I hope this section covers all your doubts. In case of need of more examples just send me a message.

Before i start explaining the different builds i want to mention that all builds are situational, if we are against a heavy AP team we arent gonna take much armour and we will be buying more magic resist, if we are against a heavy AD team, we will buy more armour, and so on. Il list all the items for each build that are recommended, its up to you to choose wich one to use in each match ;)

Tanky DPS Build:

Mercury Treads are highly recommended on this build, we will need the Tenacity against a heavy CC enemy team, since we dont have strong CC tool´s to escape or not very efficient escaping mechanisms (if the ultimate is on cooldown), tenacity from this boots are very helpfull.

Gives us atack damage, armour, lifesteal, free ward, and creep farming tool. Both armour and lifesteal are great for our survival. It still can be replaced by items like Zeke's Herald

Gives us high atack speed and some nice MR to help our tankiness with Shyvana. Items like Spirit Visage are also viable if matched with the right items.

A MUST HAVE item, we totally need the CC from the Frozen Mallet, the 700 health combined with Atma's Impaler will be debastating. If you are going for a more damage output than tankiness go for a Trinity Force.

Armour, critical chance, and a percentage of your health turns into AD, what else can you ask for? A GREAT item for Shyvana and i´d say, a must have since all my builds get benefited from both health and crit except the full tank build

A very new item recently added to League of Legends, 55 AD, 36 MR, and a nice Shield and +1 Attack Damage for every 2.5% health missing. Its a nice item if you are lacking MR to survive those AP champs.

Amazing item for Shyvana, can also be used on the Full DPS build, next section will cover this item full-depth ;)

Lately I been using this item preety much on rankeds, I was full build with scores similar to 8/0 and I didnt wanted to die and feed team so I tryed out this amazing item, if you are fed and you have all your items. GET IT

If you see them stacking too much armour, this will get you through them. Can be used in any build if they have the ammount of armour to use this item correctly =)

The item supossed to replace the Ol´ Madreds Bloodrazour one of my favourite items for Shyvana, but now that is gone we cant use it anymore. Blade of ruined king will give us lifesteal, Atack damage and that tank shredding passive BUT I dont like the fact the passive states "%4 of the targets current health" and that it doesnt give no atack speed at all like Madreds Bloodrazour used to. Still its not a bad item for Shyvana I havent found the oportunity to use it yet and Im not convinced by it, but if you like it...go ahead!

Quite expensive but it gives a very decent amount of AD and Magic resistance. We will only be buying this item if the enemy team has too much AP damage plus Crowd Control to prevent dying.

Average price, and it gives a nice ammount of Atack speed, if you havent bought Mercury's Treads for Ninja Tabi and you need the tenacity, go ahead for this item!

Full Damage Build

First of all I want to clarify that Shyvana should never build full damage with no health, armour or MR at all. The items from this builds are meant to be mixed with the other two guides (Tanky DPS or Full Tank) the items you will choose from here or the other guides are according to your needs in that game.

The tenacity will help us survive the CC from our enemies since we wont be building very tanky during the game.

%25 Atack speed, nice to start with and build our damage output for later on and of course, fits our passive :)

The CC from phage, and the passive from the Sheen will make YOU, an unstopable force of destruction my dear friend, they fit perfectly your Twin Bite wich in later game will be one of your highest damage source´s. Gives you health, more atack speed for your passive, movement speed, and some atack damage. Amazing item.

All AD carries need one of this, if its stacked to the max you will enjoy some nice %25 lifesteal, and since your damage will be extreamly high, lifesteal will heal you insanely high aswell. Of course the ammount of AD it gives comes great.

More AD to add to our champion and some %25 crit chance. Of course we get this item for the passive, the damage increase from critical strikes will pop your damage to the sky. For new players, you only have to buy this item once since the passive its unique and doesnt stack.

More crit for our Infinity Edge and some armour to last longer in team fights, plus the passive combined with the health ammount we have will increase your AD for a fair ammount

Atack speed, movement speed, and critical chance, procs with our Infinity Edge, and the movement speed combined with Trinity Force and Burnout will let you catch any fleeing champion. A very viable choice for the build.

After seeing this item in another Shyvana guide´s i tested this item and gave it a chance. After a big testing i found out this to be a very viable item, it really boosts up the Shyvana´s damage output. If you are looking either for more atack speed or more damage this item is a great choice.

Also another new item added to this guide, has armor penetration, atack damage, cooldown reduction and critical strike chance and a unique of %50 Atack speed and %20 movement speed, great item and fits the Full DPS build for Shyvana perfectly.

If you see them stacking too much armour, this will get you through them. Can be used in any build if they have the ammount of armour to use this item correctly =)

Full Tank Build

Maybe not my most recommended build but still viable if you are struggling to survive

Since we are going full tank in this build, magic resist and the tenacity will help you surive longer in team fights

The second option for boots will always be...yes... Ninja Tabi, some extra armour, and reduced damage from auto atacks from enemies.

You can choose Warmog's Armor over this for the extra health and Health regen but i still highly recommend you to get Frozen Mallet, the CC will help you and your teammates seccure kills from fleeing champion´s and the ammount of health, is still very nice.

The kryptonite of AD carries, 100 armour for you to enjoy and a passive you will love, enemies will hate being around you and friends will love being around you, can you ask for more?

Extra health, armour, and passive to farm creeps or kill your enemies, it procs well with Burnout. Great choice

Some extra health, nice ammount of Magic Resistance , cooldown reduction, and the passive will increase our healings so if you see yourself in trouble with AP champions dont doubt in buying it along with with Wit´s End =)

Sometimes we love it, sometimes we hate the champion using it, it gives us some extra armour and extra magic resist, and a passive you WILL love, all of us died at least once fighting a champion on a 1 vs 1, and while we are dead we see that champion escape with no more than 200 Hp, with this item those things will never happen again, and of course, if you cant kill him once you revive, you just use your ultimate and escape. All up to you if you take it or not ;)

On the list of recommended items for Shyvana, if your team is very squishy and take a lot of damage, this item is not a bad choice at all if no one else has bought it.

Guide Top

Ravenous Hydra, Is it viable?

First of all lets explain this amazing item called Ravenous Hydra


+75 Attack Damage

+15 health regeneration

+10% life Steal

Passive: (Melee Only) Damage dealt by this item benefits from life steal. UNIQUE Passive: Cleave: Your attacks deal physical damage up to 60% of your Attack Damage to units around your target, decaying down to 20% near the edge.

UNIQUE Active: Crescent: Deals physical damage up to 100% of your Attack Damage to units around you, decaying down to 60% near the edge. (10 second cooldown)

Item cost: 3500g

Why would that benefit Shyvana? The passive combined with our Twin Bite and Dragon's Descent will tear your enemies apart like paper!
Lets refresh your memory on what Twin Bite combined with Dragon's Descent do ;)

Q: Shyvana strikes twice on her next attack, dealing physical damage on the second attack. The bonus damage is equal to 80/85/90/95/100% of Shyvana's Attack Damage.
Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front Shyvana.
No Cost
Range - 650

Now lets think about that just 1 second, Twin Bite´s damage its a double Shyvana normal atack plus a bonus of certain percentage of your AD, if you combine this with Ravenous Hydra means you will be doing from %60 to %20 of that damage to enemies near you (Not bad as Q is our main source of damage and you are mostly an AoE champion. Now lets add the Dragon's Descent´s effect, while in Dragon Form Twin Bite cleaves all units in front of Shyvana adding On-Hit effects (Correct me if im wrong) like Frozen Mallet´s passive or Wit's End´s passive, Now add Ravenous Hydra´s passive......Gets interesting doesnt it? ;)

To show you im not crazy yet and that Tiamat works preety well with Shyvana i´ve tryed it and took some screenshots of the games, they were normal games because I wanted to make this section as fast as I could and if I would done ranked games maybe I wouldnt have the chance to use Shyvana since your role must contribute and fit your team needs.
Anyways ive rushed Tiamat after Wriggle's Lantern and you must beleive me my damage and farming went rocket high to the moon (Expression from Argentina where I live, means it popped up or increased ridicoulously) tearing all enemies and their partners like paper.

So for anyone who is playing Shyvana and want to try something new, CHECK THIS ITEM!

With the new Season 3, they changed Tiamat into a more expensive and stats-giving item called Ravenous Hydra, it is between the recommended items for Shyvana and I have been using it during Ranked matches and I found it to fit perfectly for her =)

If you are gonna down-vote, tell me why.

Lately this guide has been getting lots of down-votes by (I think) Trolls, they just down vote my guide and leave no comment on why, on what they dissagree from this guide.

If you are gonna vote me up, please tell me why you liked this guide I really appreciate people´s comments. I made this guide to help people and when they thank me for that, its one of the best feelings I had, not being sarcastic, because helping people to get no benefit its one of the best actions as human beings that we can make. Of course id like to help many other people in many different ways, but untill i become a millionaire, i cant help Africa much from here, so i like to contribute to this society.

If you are gonna down-vote me, please have the compassion to tell me why, i made this guide for you, and nothing more, and if i cant help you with it, then this guide isnt fullfilling its purpose. And also because i really put lots of effort into this, and seeing this get troll voted really makes me angry, a few days ago i was the number one Shyvana guide from mobafire with %91, and now i have %86 and ive got no feedback so far on WHY my percentage went down and WHY ive got a negative vote

I hope this guide helped you and that it covered all your doubts, if you liked it, leaving a comment to thank me for the time spent will really make my day better, honestly :)
