Hi guys its Ayush here. I bought Shyvana after hearing about her jungling skills and stuff. Im pretty pleased so far but because im only level 14 and I dont have access to Tier 3 runes, I dont jungle much but play on the top as a Solo or Duo lane more. Can anyone give me some tips on how to play better in general and with a Shyvana as both in the top and in the Jungle? Thanks for your time :)

Be aggressive.

Constant invasion of the enemy jungle and killing whatever is in there, enemy champions included.

I don't recommend a duo lane because Shyvana is easily harassed in the case that there are two ranged champions. It's easier and better to jungle, starting with Cloth Armor and 5 Health Potions. Shyvana is also a stronger jungler than she is a laner, so practice that instead of laning.

If you insist on laning, wait until you're in an elo range where they follow the 1-1-2 meta (solo top, solo mid, ad carry/support bot, jungler) and practice at Solo top.

In laning, maxing Flame Breath first will give you ranged harass and more damage in extended duels. Maxing Q will improve your ability to trade. Maxing W improves your ability to chase, while also giving more dps. You generally want to determine which of them you want against your opponents, but in your case maxing E would be better as you won't always get an easy lane (again, if you're against 2 ranged) so you can CS/harass from afar.

Your ultimate, if aiming for a kill, should be saved until they used up their Flash or escape (like after an Ezreal uses his blink) because it's your only reliable gap closer and you don't want to waste it. In a teamfight, you want to use it to initiate into their squishies and instantly blow them up while bunching up their team.

Shyvana is also very farm dependent, so going for an early Heart of Gold and building it into a Randuin's Omen can help your income, especially during games that aren't going too well.

Hey Asian thanks for replying :)

From what I understood, I should jungle regardless of what I have starting with a Cloth Armor and 5 Health Potions yes? If I do Jungle, should i max Twin Bite or Burnout first?

As jungle you should do 9/21/0 masteries, but instead of taking armor pen in offense take magic pen, since you already got armor pen from E and most of your spells does magic damage anyway
and rotation should be Max R then Max W, then E and last max Q

I'd advise you stay away from jungling until you're
higher level. One of the premier reasons of course being,
as you stated too, that you don't have access to the best runes.
