Introduction

Hello I've recently discovered that Shyvana is a great jungler compared to top lane. This is my 2nd guide I have ever made so don't judge too much if I do few mistakes or it doesen't have much content in it. My native language isn't english but i try my best so you can understand what I mean by explaining some stuff :D .
I'm Diamond Euw player right now i run around diamond 2-4 because I don't always get my role but it doesen't really matter because most of the time I play for fun :p.
In this guide i prefer Shyvana as a tanky jungler. She's in my opinion the fastest jungler if you max e on her and she can effectively counter gank. She's also one of my favorite champions to counter gank on if you like fast wave clear junglers this is one of them.

In S4 basically if you play jungle you almost everytime have to go 9-21 so you have sustain and stuff works pretty much on every jungler except some squishy ap junglers like eve or diana because mainly their goal is to instant kill enemy carries.

Summoner Sets

Smite & Flash
I run smite flash because basically flash is pretty much good on every champion for engage and disengage and smite is just must pick for a jungle.

Item Builds

Starting Build(s)
Default Starting Build
5
Build 2
I run like 95% of my games with hunters machete and 5 health potions with shyvana because it gives you alot of sustain and you can take alot of camps before going back. Dorans blade works aswell but i don't like it that much on shyvana because basically ad doesen't give you much early game.
Final Build(s)
Standard Final Items
I usually run this because you get all resists alot of damage and you can 1v1 pretty much everyone.
Hydra gives you extra damage which stacks nicely with your ulti Q combo and gives insane wave clear one of my favorite items for shyvana.
Trinity Force is very expensive but as Phreak says it deals TONS OF D AMAGE you should take this if you want to shit on enemy adc I rarely replace this with tank items because it works well on shyvana.
Build Order
You usually go back when you have 1400 gold so you can get mobility + spirit stone so you can take camps fast and gank effectively then I rush Ancient golem for extra gold from camps and take giants belt for extra hp because of the Ancient golem nerf and follow up with spectral's cowl so i have enough resists

Situational Items

Spirit of the Elder Lizard
This is a pretty good item if you consider on ganking lanes and you snowball pretty hard for example. You steal their double buffs and you go back with 2k gold in your pocket with mobi and spirit stone in your inventory you could go and take this item with a ruby crystal so you do extra damage which is pretty nice on shyvana and extra gold from ganks. So this item is pretty much if you snowball
Blade of the Ruined King
I'm not a fan of this item but it works good on shyvana I can't say that you should take this instead of Hydra or Trinity force but its good for chasing enemies and slow them This item is more seen on top shyvana I don't like this item but its really up to you what you want to take from your build to take this item.
Thornmail
One of the best items for full ad teams. I have actually played alot against full ad teams so its nice to pick this and take it instead of spirit visage but you should aswell take one damage item from your build to get extra hp that spirit visage gives like sunfire cape.
Warmog's Armor
I know many people have forgotten about this item but i think that its pretty nice to have 1k hp on shyvana but its only considered if you're only teams tank then you can replace a damage item with this item I think its still pretty nice after nerfs.
Frozen Mallet
This item is pretty good but I find it being pretty good on shyvana especially if you have trinity force you can chase enemies easily and gives a nice slow aswell This can be builded if enemies are full and you need to replace your spirit visage with something else.
Locket of the Iron Solari
Locket was core item for jungler before preseason but I don't like this item and never did I found it being over rated but you can build this item myself I haven't built this for ages on jungle and I don't think its worth building it.
Ninja Tabi
You take these boots after midgame because you don't need mobility boots anymore for ganks so these are pretty good in my opinion or mercury threads if you went for spirit of the lizard elder :p

Skill Order

Player Level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
Dragonborn
QTwin Bite
WBurnout
EFlame Breath
RDragon's Descent
Why i take E over W Is simple. Flame breath gives you fast wave clear and does magic damage enemies except shyvana to do alot of attack damage but you simply just do magic damage and I find it much more effective to max first instead of w.

Skills

Dragonborn
This is what makes shyvana a great champion in jungle and overall Mr + Arm bonus is always good so I like this passive fits shyvana perfectly.
Twin Bite
I don't think this spell is really that good but its good finishing blow and in dragon form nice aoe damage with hydra combined
Burnout
This is a great spell for jungling and gives nice movement speed BUT I prefer not to max this first because E gives much more in my opinion and it deals decent damage at lower level you aswell extend the duration of your burnout when using autoattack so this is pretty nice aswell what makes shyvana jungle fast and effective.
Flame Breath
My favorite spell on shyvana I used to hate this spell before it got buffed but right now it turns shyvana is such a beast jungler because her jungle speed is insane and all you have to do is throw this and w the camp will be gone in few seconds. You should use it in fights against everyone as a first spell because it gives you alot of extra damage if you miss this spell dont try to fight because this is what basically makes you a godlike in 1v1.
Dragon's Descent
This basically turns shyvana into dragon and deals some damage but I usually miss it and don't deal damage with it I use it For escape Or for chase. It gives your spells buff for some time and the cooldown is really low because you can stack fury easily by 1 if you constantly attack minions a really nice spell makes shyvana an awesome initiator.

Champion Matchups

Jarvaniv
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
This champion is not about jungling he's more about his E Q ganks so you have to keep eye on the map he wins you early first 9 levels but you can easily win against him if you take constantly camp and counter gank him.
Leesin
Difficulty
Favors You
If he takes your buff level 1 then this might be abit hard match up but you can still effectively clear camps and keep up in levels with him he can win you in 1v1 early but at level 6 he has no chanse if you don't miss your Flame Breath. You're a better champion in late game so this matchup favors you more.
Nocturne
Difficulty
Favors You
I find nocturne being useless without buffs and effective ganks so you can easily counter jungle him since he doesen't have that much damage against you just time his red and blue buff for extra exp.
Shaco
Difficulty
Favors You
An easy champion to instant kill if he tries to counter jungle you because you do much more damage and if he counter jungles you , you can take control of his camps and kill him every time you see him match favors you.
Udyr
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
I find udyr being annoying both Phoenix and Tiger his wave clear is pretty fast and he has high movement speed and low cooldowns. He wins you in 1v1 and can be much more terrifying late game than you if he counter jungles your buffs a few time. All you have to do is to start with Warding trinket and ward your blue or Red so he wont get early lead. In this matchup you pretty much try to farm and counter gank.

Early Game

You try to rush top lane after you take your first buff followed up by 2 minicamps ( wraiths, wolves) and then take red buff its most likely that enemy jungler will be there aswell so be ready to get counter ganked. Your role in early game is to farm and counter jungle and counter gank which is easily done by warding enemy jungle entrances.

Mid Game

Mid game you group and try to force objectives like drake turrets and try to get caught as many of them as possible keep warding so you have enough vision to scout enemy jungle.

Late Game

Late game is pretty simple you clear wards if your team is leading then clear baron area and try to go for 3 man baron with adc and top lane because shyvana is pretty fast and tanky champion to take such objective with adc, while you're doing it ask your mid + support to distract enemies by pushing mid or top to keep them away from realizing you take baron. But if you're losing you wait for a good opportunity to engage under your turret with ultimate.

Teamfights

Teamfights are pretty messy when you play shyvana try to defend your adc and force enemy carries to stay away from teamfight if you have enough damage you can try to kill them but dont dive too deep for them don't forget about your team.

Conclusion

I hope this guide helped you in anyway wanted to make a fast guide on shyvana hope you learned something
