How to play Shyvana


Shyvana is a fighter jungler. She is pretty weak early game, not having the best damage or mobility. When Shyvana farms the jungle and reaches Level 5 and has Dragon's Descent (Ultimate) available, this is when she comes online. She stacks fury over time with auto attacks to be able to use her Ultimate. When she reaches max fury, you can activate your ultimate and turn into a dragon, enhancing all your abilities. Shyvana's abilities also get upgraded once you kill certain dragons. This means the later the game goes and if you have dragons secured, you become a real threat!

Shyvana Build Breakdown


Trinity Force
Blade of the Ruined King
Guardian Angel
Sterak's Gage
Force of Nature
Plated Steelcaps - Gargoyle

Shyvana uses a mixture of both AD and tank items that allow her to deal damage and survive. Trinity Force is a great item for Shyvana and a core item that you must pick up early on. It gives her all the stats she needs and she works really well with the passives Spellblade and Rage. Blade of the Ruined King is another must-buy item on Shyvana. This item helps Shyvana stay alive with the physical vamp but also allows her to auto-attack faster to get her Ultimate quicker.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Shyvana is a fighter so she wants to get in the enemies' face and attack constantly whilst using her spells. This allows her to get the stacks pretty fast, to deal even more damage.

Brutal

This helps out Shyvana in the early game to get that extra bit of damage when clearing the jungle and getting them early ganks off.

Hunter - Titan

With Shyvana, you will be in a lot of fights and ganking a lot which means you will be getting plenty of takedowns. This allows Shyvana to get a bit more health with each takedown to make her that little bit extra tanky.

Mastermind

The go-to rune for junglers in Wild Rift! Allows you to deal 10% bonus true damage to epic monsters and turrets.

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for the killing blow. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Helps you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


Shyvana has a relatively fast early jungle clear. This means that you can work your way around the jungle really fast and get Level 5 as soon as possible. She doesn't have the best 1 vs 1 potential vs other junglers. This means that most of the time you want to go for a full clear in the jungle. It is best to start at Red Brambleback as you don't have mana and you don't lose a lot of health when jungle clearing. 


This is what the jungle patch would look like:

  1. Red Brambleback
  2. Raptors
  3. Wolves
  4. Blue Sentinel
  5. Scuttle
  6. Enemy Krugs or your Gromp

Below is a beginner's guide I did for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp, epic monsters and more!

Late Game


Shyvana is a great team fight champion in the late game. Once you have your core items and you have stacked up a few dragons, you can Ultimate into the enemy team and do a lot of damage whilst also staying alive for a long time. You want to stay with your team at all times and try not to get caught out by yourself. As a jungler, your main objective is to keep track of when Dragons, Rift Herald, and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When a team fight happens, you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team. 

Conclusion


Overall Shyvana is a great starter champion if you want to play jungle! She has some easy abilities that you can learn straight away and can have a big impact on the game.
