League of Legends Shyvana

League of Legends players, have you met Shyvana yet? Shyvana the half dragon is presented as someone who is full of surprises. If you are wondering about this upcoming champions' mechanics, continue reading as we have acquired more information.

 

 

The new champion coming to League of Legends is a half dragon, called Shyvana. Check out this teaser image and read the mechanics preview to find out if she fits your playing style.

For this mechanics preview, we wanted to focus less on the individual abilities of our upcoming champion and talk about the skillset and character flow of Shyvana, the Half Dragon, as a whole.

Shyvana is a melee champion that heavily rewards aggression. She does so by utilizing a system called Dragon’s Blood, a resource that accrues anytime Shyvana lands an auto-attack. Once her Dragon’s Blood is full, she can unleash it to transform into a dragon, giving her substantial buffs, ability enhancements and some upfront damage. While in dragon form, Shyvana’s Dragon’s Blood is slowly consumed, though she can continue auto-attacking to extend the duration of the Dragon Form and maximize her damage output with each use.

It’s also worth mentioning that Shyvana’s ultimate has no cooldown, but can only be used when her reserve of Dragon’s Blood is full. The right set of circumstances can allow a skilled player to transform much more often than would otherwise be possible.

In addition, all of Shyvana’s abilities also have benefits that trigger when she auto-attacks. This is to differentiate her from the “melee caster” paradigm embodied by some other characters, making her play somewhere between an Attack Damage carry and a fighter.

Simply put, Shyvana is for players who like any of the following:

Offensive, aggressive playstyles
Melee carries or fighters
The idea of being a super-rad dragon
