Shyvana's AP build is good in this patch however i prefer to AD due to Blade of the Ruined King buff for melee champ. Right now, she is perfect solo queue jungle pick as Olaf got nerfed quite harsh on his stat.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

AP Shyvana is a build around AP ratio on Shyvana (for short, i gonna call her Anna instead of Shyvana). Be aware of how squishy Anna is when taking AP route.

Nashor's ToothNashor's Tooth is a good 1st core item for Anna thanks to the attack speed stats and also giving her 15% magic damage on every attack is valuable. you can replace it with Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King if you need lifesteal instead of added magic damage.
Anna also need more movement speed, so your choices of enchantment are Glorious EnchantGlorious Enchant or Protobelt EnchantProtobelt Enchant
Rabadon's DeathcapRabadon's Deathcap is the item that boost Anna magic damage with 40% AP boost. you have to rush it.

Situational Items

Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King Already explained above
Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment a item that will give you tankiness that you may need for AP Anna and you facing a lot of tank champ like DariusDarius NasusNasus or BraumBraum . replace the Gunblade if you want to use this. buy this after Rabadon's DeathcapRabadon's Deathcap  
MorellonomiconMorellonomicon Buy this item if there's a lot of healing champ like SorakaSoraka NasusNasus DariusDarius or Master YiMaster Yi however Grievous Wound is suck for AP champ, so i prefer to not buy this item unless my team, somehow, someway, don't have Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder at all.

Mundo vs Anna is a deathwish for Anna later in the game because he is the anti magic champion (if any chance Kassadin coming to Wild Rift, then he is the real anti magic champion). However before he's able to get into that stage, Anna will rip him apart. and her Flame BreathFlame Breath isn't a joke for tank champ, especially if she get infernal drake.

Shyvana

Pros and cons

PROSCONS
The best in cleaning the jungle, the 2nd is OlafOlaf , and the 3rd is EvelynnEvelynn Need time to gank, because she need level 5 to gank.
AP Build offers burst capability, and also able to one-shot squishes champ like LuxLux or Miss FortuneMiss Fortune  AP build sometime will be a bad build because your team doesn't have / lack any tank.
There are not so much item that able to counter AP build.AP build depends on Flame BreathFlame Breath and sometime Anna misses the skill shot. it will be even worse if the opponent has great YasuoYasuo mastery 7 shit stain who always block your projectile.
Anna is even deadlier if able to take drake, especially the Mountain and Infernal.No drake? no buff for Anna.
Very quick to take objectives especially drake, which is quite lacking in jungle champ.No escape mechanism if Anna already use her Dragon's DescentDragon's Descent
Shyvana

Anna's BFF

Who is it?Why?
OriannaOrianna Command: ShockwaveCommand: Shockwave is one of the reason Orianna is broken, and also the best control skill in the game, if she able to grab 3 or 2 champs in that ult, Anna will clean them up fast, with out have to do much.
NamiNami & BraumBraum Tidal WaveTidal Wave is also good opener skill for team fight and if Anna is behind the opponent team, then she able to bring them into awaiting death.
This is the same with BraumBraum 's Glacial FissureGlacial Fissure
SeraphineSeraphine Beat DropBeat Drop will help Anna to land her Flame BreathFlame Breath skill shot into her opponent, and also EncoreEncore also giving an opportunity to Shyvana to drag the opponent to awaiting death.
Shyvana

Early - Mid

As stated before, Shyvana is the fastest in cleaning jungle. however you need to get level 5 for ganking, you can check what is level 5 path in my guide for jungler. however, for Anna (and Eve) , you can start it from Wolves / Raptors thanks to fast cleaning.

Getting level 5 now? good. it is time to make your decision. if any lane have give you hint to gank, use your "on my way" ping to the lane that you want to gank and spam it. so your team mate that will receive your gank understand you will go to that lane. however, if you don't see any, go reset by recall and buy your item and start using trinkets for scanning the dragon area. remember, you need drakes for buff.

Now look into your bot lane (or dragon lane, i'm used to watch pro scene in League's PC so i gonna use PC terms here) and mid lane, do they pushed into their turrets? good. they have to deal with it, and you can take drake for your team. do not take it alone, take it with your team (please, ping the drake) unless the opposition jungler is the opposite (no pun intended) of you. remember, they cannot take drake faster than you. 

Everytime you able to takedown your opponent champ, always chat "GJ!" or "WP!" to encourage them to do best. don't flame them, unless your ADC is not buying boots 2nd item. (some people rush items, and forget to buy boots. League always demands you to buy boots after your first item!) 

Shyvana

Mid - Late Game

Now Anna will be scary to your opponent to face with, especially the drake buff she already taken with (if it is Infernal and Mountain buff just surrender already).

However Anna is still squishy in mid-late game, but the power of deleting someone here is strong, in this time, try to think as a assassin / slayer. you need to bid your time when to release the dragon power to delete your opponent with your Flame BreathFlame Breath and Twin BiteTwin Bite combo. if needed, try to take Baron and also Elder Dragon. and then finish the game.
