Hey all
Well I've recently been playing the role of Adc a lot and find that, frankly being focused and dying all the time is annoying as hell. I love dealing damage though so I thought hey, why not a top lane bruiser. I searched through a lot of them but I keep coming back to shyvana. I know she's normally a jungle but phreak plays her top so... The real main reason I keep thinking of her is because I have a slight obsession with dragons. I LOVE THEM. Anyway for experienced players out there. Is shyvana worth the buy. And can she be played well top. Last time I bought a champion I liked the look of, it was Syndra and I am still regretting that. So any feedback would be AWESOME.
Cheers

Yes. She. Is. You will love her, her sustained damage is hella op. Just be sure to get some lifesteal items early, because you will need some form of sustain.

I agree with Banishedd when it comes to Shyvana. Wriggle's Lantern is a great choice for her, jungle or top. I see most pros running strong attack speed runepages on her to get her passive up quickly. She works well as a full tank, or offtank. Her damage potential is massive and her build paths are very open.

If you like dragons it looks like you've found your perfect bruiser. I highly recommend her!

Shyvana is definitively a good buy, shes very versatile and even if you build her as a tank she still deals a lot of damage. I recommend you to play her on top as Full DPS and if your team already has a tanky champion though you may have a bit of a hard time vs champs like Jax, Darius, Irelia etc that are commonly played but its all practice

After you get your Trinity Force her damage is just scary with Twin Bite, shes just my fav champ :)
Gave you a good laugh or helped? rep+ so i can know ;)

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

Elohell is like Irelia's stun: if your real level is equal or lower than the level you are in, you're STUNNED there forever. If your actual level is higher than the level you are in, you're just SLOWED in your way up.

Shyvana utilizes her camp clearing ability to push the lane hard and then go steal jungle camps.

She's amazing in everything she does. She's amazingly fast in the jungle, and she's scary as hell up top lane.
I've tried a variety of different builds with her, and I honestly thought the tankier ones are more fun.

Wriggles isn't great for top lane.

Dorans are a lot better now, tbh.

Blade of the Ruined King is fantastic, an early Bilgewater Cutlass is all you could want for sustain.

In season 3 everyone can top lane. Just stack 4x BC and you're good to go.
