League of Legends Patch v1.0.0.128

BY Andrew Miesner / November 1, 2011

Today, League of Legends received another update, adding a brand new champion – Shyvana, the Half-Dragon. The patch included balances to their last champion Graves, buffs to Wukong and Olaf and nerfs to Shaco and Caitlyn. This patch also has a change to the new Dominion mode, where minor settings have been tweaked.

Shyvana, the Half-Dragon


Fury of the Dragonborn (Passive):

  • Shyvana’s melee attacks enhance her abilities.
  • Twin Bite – Reduces the cooldown by 0.5 seconds.
  • Burnout – Extends the duration by 1 second to a maximum of 6 seconds.
  • Flame Breath – Deals 20% of the ability’s damage to debuffed targets.
  • Dragon’s Descent – Attacks generate 2 Fury and Shyvana passively gains Fury over time while in human form.


Twin Bite:

  • Shyvana deals magic damage per second to nearby enemies and her Movement Speed is greatly increased for 3 seconds. Shyvana’s Movement Speed bonus is reduced over time.
  • Dragon Form: Twin Bite cleaves all units in front of Shyvana.



  • Shyvana strikes twice on her next attack. Both attacks trigger On-Hit effects and Fury of the Dragonborn effects.
  • Dragon Form: Burnout scorches the earth, continuing to damage enemies that stand on it.


Flame Breath:

  • Shyvana unleashes a fireball that deals magic damage and melts the target’s Armor for 4 seconds.
  • Dragon Form: Flame Breath engulfs all units in a cone in front of Shyvana.


Dragon’s Descent (Ultimate):

  • Active: Shyvana transforms into a dragon and takes flight to a target location. Enemies along her path take magic damage and are knocked toward her target location.
  • Passive: Shyvana reinforces her scales, increasing her Armor and Magic Resist. Defensive bonuses are doubled in Dragon Form.
