Guide to Synergizing Zed and Shyvana

Tips for Playing as Zed with Shyvana

Placing a Living Shadow before using Death Mark can give Zed a safe escape from combat.

Quickly double tapping Living Shadow will teleport Zed to his shadow immediately for rapid escapes.

Saving energy and spell cooldowns until you use your ultimate will maximize Death Mark's damage.

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.
