Shyvana The Half-Dragon Skills

Fury of the Dragonborn

Shyvana's melee attacks enhance her abilities.
Twin Bite - Reduces the cooldown by 0.5 seconds.
Burnout - Extends the duration by 1 second to a maximum of 6 seconds.
Flame Breath - Deals 20% of the ability's damage to debuffed targets.
Dragon's Descent - Attacks generate 2 Fury and Shyvana passively gains Fury over time while in human form.

Twin Bite

Cooldown 10/9/8/7/6 seconds
Next auto attack hits twice, second hit deals 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100 % of total attack damage
Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front of Shyvana.


Cooldown 12 seconds
Shyvana deals 25 / 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 (+20% of bonus attack damage) 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 earth, continuing to damage enemies that stand on it.

Flame Breath

Cooldown 12/11/10/9/8 seconds

Shyvana unleashes a fireball that deals 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+60% of ability power) magic damage and burns 15% of their armor for 4 seconds.
Dragon Form: Flame Breath engulfs all units in a cone in front of Shyvana.

Dragon's Descent

Skill Usage

■Dragon's Descent has a minimum duration of 16,66 seconds if no autoattacks are made. With an attackspeed from 2.5 the maximum duration is 100 seconds, assuming that she is constantly attacking. With an attackspeed from 1 the maximum duration is 25 seconds, with 1.5 it's 33,33 seconds. These calculations do not take in account that Twin Bite doubles the amount of Fury and can hit multiple targets in dragonform.
■ With good positioning and timing Twin Bite can massively extend the duration of Dragon's Descent. By hitting only three targets it generates enough fury to stay in dragonform for another two seconds.
■Twin Bite is a great tower pushing tool as it allows you to autoattack 3 times in the space of one.
■ Shyvana's Twin Bite is her bread and butter and maxing it first will allow you to use it more often.
■Use Burnout to chase enemies as it grants extra movespeed.
■Dragon's Descent can be used to chase or escape in any situation you need.
■Try to position yourself while in Dragon's Descent to be able to hit as many targets as you can with your AoE abilities.
■Attacking turrets, inhibitors or the nexus does not trigger Fury of the Dragonborn's cooldown reduction on Twin Bite. It does, however, trigger its effect for Burnout.
■While both hits triggered from Twin Bite deal on-hit effects, only the first hit is able to deal a critical strike. The second hit only deals a percentage of Shyvana's Attack Damage as damage.

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!”

Upon selection
■"They are nothing before me."

■"The enemies of Demacia will fall."
■"They have faced nothing like me."
■"I smell fear."
■"The dragon nears."
■"They should run now."
■"On wings of fury."
■"Without remorse."
■"I go."
■"The quiet before battle."
■"The might of Demacia will prevail."
■"By the blood of my father, I will end them."
■"They see their end."
■"They are nothing before me."
■"The rage."
■"Suffer my fury."

In dragon form
■"I am unleashed."
■"Power flows through me."
■"Fear me."
■"Feel my talons."
■"Fragile creatures."
■"Tremble before the power of the dragon."
■"I will dance in their ashes."
■"Behold my true form."

■"Come get a glimpse into the belly of the beast!" (in human form)
■"Think you're a dragon slayer? Come here and try." (in dragon form)

■"What do you get when a dragon sneezes? (Chuckles) Out of the way."
