How to Play with Shyvana as Shen in LoL

The Shen Shyvana synergy stats shown here demonstrate the areas of his gameplay that do better (or worse) when paired with Shyvana, compared to his overall stats. Significant differences are areas of focus that highlight how his gameplay changes when paired with this other champion.

Overall, Shen sees a large worsening in his KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Shyvana. His KDA went down from NaN to NaN. This fall shows that Shyvana helps Shen perform worse in ranked LoL rounds. Yet, the small difference proves that this performance change is only marginal.

When Shen plays on the same team as Shyvana, he gets a barely noticable drop in his full damage output. This change could signal that Shyvana does not provide cover for him to deal more damage or that her presence on the team also helps increase the round's duration. Similarly, when Shen is played together with Shyvana on the same team, he usually scores many fewer killing sprees than when he plays without Shyvana. This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing with Shyvana.

Moreover, when Shen plays with Shyvana on the same side, he typically receives a little more damage than when he fights alone. Getting dealt more damage could indicate that Shyvana does a poor job of protecting Shen during team fights.

Is Shen better when played alongside Shyvana?

There is no one best ally for Shen that will always be his top synergy. However, Shyvana is a pretty good ally for Shen. By playing on the same team as Shen, she improves their win rate by 1.0% to 50.9%. This signals that there is a good strategic relationship between Shen and Shyvana that results in them performing better together than alone.

Shyvana has a lower difficulty than Shen. That means Shen players don't need to be cautious when arranging Shyvana teammates to fight alongside, as they will need a lower level of skill to be able to fight well with you.

Fighting together, you will likely witness an overall large increase in your team’s ability to tank a lot of damage. When paired, these champions will be able to tank for the rest of their team.

Although, by aligning Shen and Shyvana together, you will not be granting your other allies a great deal of magical damage output. Make sure to bring other champs on your team that offsets this relative hole in this pairing's capabilities.

Regardless of the skill of your Shyvana teammate, you should focus on increasing your income, warding to avoid ambushes, and taking down objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well, regardless.
