Guide to Synergizing Xerath and Shyvana

Tips for Playing as Xerath with Shyvana

Eye of Destruction will make landing Arcanopulse easier as the target will be slowed.

If you stun an enemy with Shocking Orb, follow up with a guaranteed center hit on Eye of Destruction.

It's easier to land Arcanopulse on an enemy when they're moving toward or away from you, rather than side to side.

Advice to Understand How Shyvana Will Play

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.
