 / Guide

Early Game
  • Shyvana typically wants to powerfarm in the early stages of the game in order to reach level 6 as soon as possible.
  • However, her early game damage and sustain shouldn't be underestimated. She can win early game skirmishes if she can put herself in positions where her opponents can't kite her.
Late Game
  • Shyvana can fulfill several roles in the late game depending on her build path, however she will always excel at objective control - specifically dragons thanks to her
    Fury of the Dragonborn
    .
  • The more dragons she and her team takes, the tankier she gets which will be amplified if she is already building tankier.

  • Shyvana is able to solo any dragon as soon as she hits level 3 due to
    Fury of the Dragonborn
    . This means that you can pull some sneaky early game dragons while the enemy jungler is busy without the help from your team.
  • Shyvana is a hybrid damaging champion. Her physical damage comes from her auto attacks and her magic damage comes from the bonus on-hit damage from

    and

    Flame Breath
    . Since
    ChampionSkill
    E
    Flame Breath
    deals 2.5% of the enemy's max health as magic damage on-hit, she will most of the time end up doing more magic damage against tankier champions but more physical damage against squishier champions.
  • When clearing raptor camps, If you auto attack a small raptor first and backup a bit from the camp, the raptors will form more of a line chasing you so you can easily hit more of them with
