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!'' - Shyvana [spotlight_embed_url] => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z66n3UYfPE4 [role] => Fighter [defense_rating] => 6 [magic_rating] => 3 [attack_rating] => 8 [difficulty_rating] => 4 [damage_rating] => 2 [mobility_rating] => 2 [cc_rating] => 1 [toughness_rating] => 2 [utility_rating] => 1 [health] => 595 [health_increase] => 0 [mana] => 0 [mana_increase] => 0 [movement_speed] => 350 [armor] => 29 [armor_increase] => 0 [magic_resistance] => 32.1 [magic_resistance_increase] => 0 [attack_damage] => 60.7 [attack_damage_increase] => 0 [critical_strike] => 0 [critical_strike_increase] => 0 [health_regeneration] => 8.6 [health_regeneration_increase] => 0 [mana_regeneration] => 0 [mana_regeneration_increase] => 0 [attack_range] => 125 [attack_speed] => 0.658 [ability_power] => 0 [ability_power_18] => 0 [attack_speed_18] => 0.926 [health_18] => 2210 [mana_18] => 0 [movement_speed_18] => 350 [armor_18] => 86 [magic_resistance_18] => 53.4 [attack_damage_18] => 118.5 [critical_strike_18] => 0 [health_regeneration_18] => 22.2 [mana_regeneration_18] => 0 [attack_range_18] => 125 [tip_playing_as] => *Shyvana's abilities all benefit from attacking units. As a result, Attack Speed items are more valuable on her than most champions. *Flame breath is great to level-up against difficult lane opponents. *Burnout is an ideal choice for jungling. Monsters will be hit by the full duration, and the speed boost improves her ganking potential. *It can be valuable to purchase one of the items that can slow enemies: Phage, Frozen Mallet, Trinity Force, or Entropy. [tip_playing_against] => A significant portion of Shyvana's power is generated through aggression, making her weak against opponents who are able to keep their distance. *All of Shyvana's basic abilities hit multiple enemies in dragon form. It's important for opposing champions to not cluster while fighting her. *Shyvana's Fury Bar is an indicator for when her ultimate can be activated. Harassing her when she's low on Fury can be very effective.

Both attacks trigger On-Hit effects and Fury of the Dragonborn effects. Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front of Shyvana. [ranked_description] => Shyvana strikes twice on her next attack. The second attack will deal {20/35/50/65/80}% of her attack damage as physical damage. Both attacks will trigger on-hit effects. Shyvana's autoattacks against non-structures reduce the cooldown of Twin Bite by 0.5 seconds. Dragon Form: Shyvana cleaves all units in front of her on her next attack.

Part of this damage is applied again when Shyvana basic attacks an enemy with Burnout active. The Movement Speed reduces over the duration of the spell. Basic attacks extend the duration of Burnout. Dragon Form: Burnout grows in size [ranked_description] => During the next 3 seconds, Shyvana deals {20/33/45/58/70} (+0.2 per bonus attack damage) magic damage each second to nearby enemies and gains {30/35/40/45/50}% increased movement speed. Shyvana's auto attacks also deal 25% of Burnout's AoE damage for the duration of the ability. The movement speed bonus is reduced by 15% of the original amount every second. Shyvana's auto attacks increase Burnout's duration, up to a maximum of 4 seconds. Dragon Form: The range of Burnout increases to {350/365/380} at rank {1/2/3} of Dragon's Descent.

Shyvana's basic attacks against marked enemies deal a percentage of their maximum health as magic damage on-hit. Dragon Form: Flame Breath explodes on impact or at target location, dealing bonus damage and scorching the earth for a short duration. [ranked_description] => Shyvana unleashes a fireball forward in a line that will mark all enemies it hits, dealing {60/100/140/180/220} {0.7} (+ 0.3 per total attack damage) magic damage to them. The fireball stops upon colliding with an enemy champion. Shyvana's basic attacks against marked enemies deal bonus magic damage equal to 2.5% of their maximum health. Dragon Form: Flame breath explodes when it hits an enemy champion or reaches its destination, dealing 100-160 (at levels 1-18) {0.3} bonus magic damage and leaving behind a flame zone. The zone is {220/240/260} units wide (at ranks {1/2/3} of Dragon's Descent) and deals 60-120 (at levels 1-18) {0.2} (+ 0.1 per total attack damage) magic damage per second. Enemies that remain in the flame zone are persistently marked for Flame Breath's bonus on-hit damage.

While in human form, Shyvana will also passively generate {1/1.5/2} fury each second. Active: Shyvana transforms into a dragon and dashes to a target location. Enemies along her path take {150/250/350} {1.0} magic damage and are pushed toward her target location. Shyvana must have a full fury bar to use this spell. While in dragon form, Shyvana gains {150/250/350} bonus health and her attack range is changed to {175/190/205}. Dragon form also increases in size by {8/16}% at ranks {2/3}. While in Dragon Form, Shyvana will lose 5 fury every second. Once her Fury bar is empty, she will return to her normal state.
