Pros and Cons of Shyvana in Wild Rift

She has a fairly easy mechanic which makes her a perfect jungle champion for new players. You don’t need to pull off flashy combos in order to dominate in the game, all you have to do is farm fast and snowball early. However, she falls really hard if you fail to maximize her potential in the early game. As a melee champion, she can be ambushed or kited by ranged champions, especially in her dragon form.
