I don't think Jax is even on the radar as solo tops go. Not until people refigure out how to exloit him. His passive change sucked *** and basically turned him into a squishy mage/fighter.

As for Shen, he's not horrible, but he lacks in a lot of areas right now in terms of the laning phase. And his jungle is...Meh at best.

Just teted him yesterday and he clears decently fast. His ganks are good with other CC in lane as the taunt is kinda short range. He needs range buffs. ;-;

Can't even leash blue from behind the wall. He just dances around trying to throw a sword at it.

A decent clear can be made up for with epic ganks, but, I don't see him taking top lane from someone like Cho Gath or GP anytime soon. Nor do I see him omnomming the jungle from Lee Sin, Noc, or Skarner. But that doesn't mean he can't be a solid option. JUust gotta find out who he beats top and who he can easily jungle again.

Singed destroys Shyvana top...

I think Shen kind of snowballs solo top, if you can get in range to hit Q'd minions, your sustain is nice, and when the jungler ganks you can go E to keep them there long enough for a kill.

Anything with sustain beats Shyvana. She's much better in the jungle imo

Because she outpushed them constantly, invaded the enemy jungle, stole camps and buffs. A lot of Shyvanas don't know how to exploit her pushing power and thus lose the lane.

That is exactly, and the only reason, why Shyvana is a decent solo top. If your mid and jungle don't really need blue(Vlad and Lee sin) her counter jungling is wasted because she's losing a ton of Exp for leaving top.

It's her overall beefyness once she hits 6. You could go ArP reds/Armor Yellows/AS blues/ Flat or HP per level quints, start armor health pots get HoG and Wriggles, then farm until level 16 and still be an effective force in team fights before then because of dragon forms passive double defense stat bonus. The idea is Shyv is just like Cho Gath, unmoveable and consistently able to push the lane.

Play her like FarmshotGG does Chogath and never leave your lane. Even if teamfights break out use it to push the lane hard. If they come to get you, your team pushes bot or mid. You don't need to be the team with the most kills to win, just the most turrets.
