Counter Tips

Shyvana does not have any CC abilities, making her fairly easy to kite.
Avoid clustering when team fighting against a Shyvana, as Shyvana's abilities become AOE in her ultimate dragon form.
Play more aggressively when you see that Shyvana's fury bar is low. This means that she is not able to use her ultimate anytime soon.
