The quasi-tank Shyvana

By Armenian Dragon
Many think she is a magician or assassin (dark harvest), others say she is a tank or bruiser (AD or AP). Never mind. More important is how you play it than what it is as a champion.

Shyvana is a quasi-fighter or quasi-tank dragon. Not even bruiser, not even tank. Why? We can't say it's a tank because it's not as tough as Ornn, Sion, Shen or others. Fighter we can't say because compared to Darius or Yorick it has a mobility. Neither duelist because he doesn't have much mobility or damage. We can say that she is a unique champion. He can be better at top than jungle (my opinion).
Belief system (repeated thoughts in the unconscious)
"Useless" - the most common, in my view I find Shyvana more useful at the top than jungle. At jungle you have to have ganking skill, and Shyvana doesn't have that job.

I recommend ordering /mute all, don't care what others say. Many times when others fail, they blame Shyvana. Shyvana is to blame, for being D tier, for being useless etc.

Do your job, don't blame anyone. Control what you can do.
Learning process
If you are a beginner and have decided to start the learning process with Shyvana, it is very important not to get demoralized. You will lose a lot of matches, the first 100-150 matches will be very difficult. It is very important instead of getting demoralized, ask yourself the questions:

"What did I do wrong?"
"What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it to be?"
"What am I willing to stop doing to make it the way I want it to be?"
Press the attack

I don't really like this, although in some matches it is very good. PTA works well early, but late not really. Works well against assassins (talon, zed, katarina etc.), duelists (fiora, riven, kled etc.) and adc (caitlyn, jhin, draven etc.). At teamfight it works harder than Grasp or Conqueror.


This is the ideal one to play all matches with. It works better for me than the classic PTA. You can be good with it early and late. And especially long fight.

Lethal Tempo

In some matches he is the best.( especially with Ravenous).


It's good too.

In my experience they are all good.
I find it an important topic for Shyvana. I'll tell each one what it's for.

From my point of view it helps you more than flash or something else, because Shyvana doesn't have much cc and you can go in. In teamfighting the same, I've noticed it helps more than flash or something else.
Almost every game I teleport, it's a must. It helps you in harder matches (Olaf, Camille, Vayne, Singed).

It can be good and flash. You can do surprise kills. But in teamfight it is more useless than ghost.

It's very good against assassins, especially early on. (Akali, Katarina, Zed etc.)
