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 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:
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 and gain a lot of physical vamp when fully stacked.
Shyvana will be in a lot of team fights jumping onto the backline to try and kill the enemy carries so dealing extra damage will always help and Shyvana restores health every time he gets a takedown.
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.
As a jungler you will be roaming around the map a lot, taking objectives and ganking lanes. Pathfinder gives you extra movement speed in brushes, jungle and river so you can move around the map a lot quicker to help your team
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:
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!
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.
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.
