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.

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 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.

Oh Shit Dragon Spells!

Ghost - I take ghost because if you cant tell i have a NEED FOR SPEED. Being able to run away when you need and run in when you want is a powerful tool.

Smite - If you want to jungle you need smite. Extra gold from mastery too so use it as often as possible even in late game just to kill minions.

Oh Shit Dragon Runes!

Greater Mark of Strength - I prefer these to armor pen on Shyvana to help jungle faster early game and make it easier to farm when you need the gold. Am still experimenting with other runes like attack speed.

Greater Seal of Resilience - I run armor runes to help make it easier to jungle and more tanky for when you go to gank at level 6.
Greater Seal of Evasion - Is also a possibility if you have them i prefer these to armor but most people are cheap.

Greater Glyph of Focus
- Cool Down Reduction runes are just good, allows you to spam Q more and run around with W really fast everywhere.

Greater Quintessence of Swiftness - You just cant stop these runes, with this and Swiftness boots you will just haul *** everywhere which helps you catch *****es and eat them, eat minions to turn into a dragon more often, and moving fast is just good.

Oh Shit Dragon Mastery!

I run 15-6-9 to get an overall balance that helps stack with the runes i choose.

Deadliness
- helps do a bit more damage
Plentiful Bounty - because why not your taking smite to jungle.
Sorcery - because dragons use magic and CDR is good.
Sunder - to give more armor pen and reduction since you have none from runes.
Brute Force - because Dragons are strong.
Resistance and Hardiness- because a good dragon is both hard and resistant and helps you be more tanky early game to get a good strong gank at 6.
Haste - to help Ghost
Perserverence - because you shouldnt be dead to need to dead less and hp regen.
Awareness - because the faster you are level 6 the faster you can get first blood.
Utility Master - because you a dragon in da jungle duhhh.

Oh Shit that Dragon has an Axe!

Start off with Cloth Armor and 5 Health Potions.

Proceed to get Long Sword then Vampiric Scepter and finish Wriggles Lantern (Don't be a ***** and remember to ward).

I prefer Boots of Swiftness with the move speed runes just to be able to move really fast at a constant pace, allows you to quickly get around map and the faster you can get to creeps to kill the faster your ultimate comes back.

Black Clever is awesome. Not even sure if the double hit with her Q double stacks the armor but I love it anyways, really beefs up the damage. Attack speed to boot.

Frozen Mallet because with how much fire you are on you need to stay coooool. Helps Atmas make you stronger and the health at this point in the game is a must have.

Atmas Impaler
also for obvious reasons, more damage and makes frozen mallet more worth the buck.

Sunfire Cape
just so you look more on fire.

Oh Shit Dragon in the Jungle!

1. Golems- Smite, W, Auto-Attack, HP pot at end
2. Wraiths- W in center of them and Q the big one. Switch target on little ones to let W finish them off. Hp Pot
3. Wolves- Stand in center pop W, Q big one etcetc. Hp Pot
4. Big Golem- Make sure to hit him with E and then Q after. Spam W like normal and smite towards end. Hp Pot
5. Go back buy sword and an hp pot or 2.
6. Golems- Same as before
7. Lizard- I stand and aim my E first so i make sure to hit Lizard and pop W spam Q like on Big Golem.

After you have red and blue buff continue to farm until you have your Ultimate then use that out of the bush dragon **** to initiate and killa*****.

Oh Shit Dragon Dominion!

This build hasn't really worked for me in dominion but i haven't tried it much. Will improve upon the dominion section later once i get to test her more.
