Hi,my name is RivenTheEx1le and this is my Shyvana guide!I hope my guide will help you to play with Shyvana and you will finde you're play style.
In this guide i show you some thing u will never seen in other guides.
With Shyvana you will carry very much games and shes funny to play:P


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!”

I take 9/21/0 in jungle for fast killing neutral monsters and didnt waste too much hp on them and gank some lanes at lvl 2.
21/0/9 for solo top is pretty good!not need comments here.

Guide Top


Often i max W and then i max Q,but if you good with skill shots you can max E after W,it will deal more damage than maxed Q (not dat much like annie's burst:D)
I test this in many games and it was pretty good...u can even last hit with this and Ks frags,and make debuff on enemy.
So max E if you think you can handle this ;)

+Deal more damage then Maxed Q
+debuff/mass debuff
+good damage in early

-Bad if do not hit enemy
-Magic damage,only ap scale
-Red buff didn't scale if you hit enemy with this

Jungle Runes:
-Greater Mark of Strenght(9) +8,5 dmg;
-Greater Seal of Resilience(9) +13 armor;
-Greater Glyph of Alacrity(9) +0,64% attack speed;
-Greater Quintessence of Strenght(3) +6,5 dmg.
It will make ur jungle pretty fast without loss of many hp,then you can make gank at lvl 2 with red buff.
Solo Top Runes:
-Greater Mark of Strenght(9) +8,5 dmg;
-Greater Seal of Alacrity(9) +0,76% attack speed;
-Greater Glyph of Alacrity(9) +0,64% attack speed;
-Greater Quintessence of Strenght(3) +6,5dmg.
With this runes you can easily dominate ur lane,try to kill ur enemy at lvl 1,lvl 2 as fast as u can,its always worked when i play Shyvana.

Summoner spells

For jungle you MUST take Exhouste and Smite!
Exhouste will help you on ganks and help you in team fights many times,more than flash...
There was a lot of situations where Exhouste justified itself and if you good with Shyvana you did not need flash.

Main Items

Wriggle's Lantern:
It's very good early item for Shyvana,some damage,some armor,some life steal and 1 free ward!always buy this item first!We have to sale Lantern after we receive the full build and buy the Bloodthirster
Phage/Trinity Force:
This item will max you're DPS,Trinity can give us all of we need on shyvana:AS,some ad,Hp,movement speed and +150% damage after u cast any spells.
You will "One shot" you're enemy's! =)
Wit's End:
This item will give you very good As(its main characteristic for Shyvana with Damage) and some magic's always good if you have Hybrid damage,because enemy can max armor against you and you're Ad carry.
+some magic resistance(additional +25 mr after you make 4 stacks with autoattack)
Atma's Impaler:
This item main item for off tanks like Shyvana,because you alwys have very much hp,but you need some damage and armor,right?And god created this perfect item!!!!!!Atma's will give you armor and 3% of the HP in damage and very good Crit chance!You will own you're enemy's:D

Jungle way

Best junglers always gank on lvl 2,it will help u mates even if u didn't kill some one!just come.
At first we go at red buff and when you take it,try to go gank mid or top(prefer)

I marked ward places on map like Purple dot(.)
Gank as much as you can,but remember about you cs and lvl!You're team not need jungle with lvl 5 ,when all is lvl 9=)

This video will show how can you gank with shyvana:

Guide Top

Solo top way

Well this lane is hard then jungle,but on this lane you will own ur enemys better if you got feed.
I always take on top items like boots or cloth armor(boots prefer),it's best items for all solo top champions...
Playing on top with Shyvana you must try to kill enemy with lvl 1 and trying kill him till you both take lvl 6.Dont try to kill enemy if you finde him very very strong,because, if your enemy is feeding on you, it would be unpleasant for you.Dont forget about you're CS,you must always have more/same cs with you're enemy and try to destroy his tower.

Guide Top

Team fight's

Shyvana is a very good DPs tank,she can deal a tons of damage and live in team fights very long.She had very good escape skills like Burn Out and Dragon Form.
If You're team want start team fight,you must start it with Dragon form,its very good skill in team fights,it will give you 15 aditional armor and magic resist
In team fight you're main target is RDD or AP carry,so try to kill them so fast as you can,but dont chase them too much,better swith ur target or u have to lose team fight.
Try to help ur mates if it possible,was a many situations when i won team fights ,because i kill some one when i helped my carry.
Try to max ur damage with W(Burn Out)

Guide Top

Shyvana's damage

Shyvana has a 50% magic damage, so do not forget about it and if you're playing against Shyvana magic resistance will help you a lot
Or try to kill enemy, who have more armor than magic resistance,he gona be surprised about this!:D

In conclusion

I hope my guide will help you and you will win many games with it
P.s. Sorry if i had a lot of mistakes in words =)
