Guide to Countering Kalista as Shyvana

Tips for Playing as Shyvana against Kalista

Flame Breath is great to level-up against difficult lane opponents.

It can be valuable to purchase one of the items that can slow enemies: Frozen Mallet, Dead Man's Plate, or Entropy.

Shyvana's abilities all benefit from attacking units. As a result, Attack Speed items are more valuable on her than most champions.

Burnout is an ideal choice for jungling. Monsters will be hit by the full duration, and the speed boost improves her ganking potential.

Advice to Win Against Kalista

If you can break line of sight from Kalista, including through brush, her basic attacks will miss you, falling harmlessly to the ground.

Kalista cannot cancel her basic attack wind up. While she is very mobile, this offers a window to land spells on her if you anticipate when she will begin attacking.

Kalista's mobility is dependent upon attacking. This means it is low when she is outside of her attack range and that Attack Speed slows reduce the amount of distance she can cover in an engagement.
