Assuming both players are of equal skill, who would usually tend to win that match up?

I currently play Renekton as my main tanky DPS champ having almost no problems with most solo top matches, but Shyvana interests me, so I would like to know how well she would match up against my top pick?

Thanks in advance!

Probably Renekton I would think. He has CC, a dash, and sustain, all of which Shyvana does not have.

Renekton would definitely get the burst and harass advantage, but toe to toe, Shyv could stand a strong chance

Renekton wins, he has sustain and a stun, Shyvana does not.

Renekton wins it easily.

Stun allows you to land autoattacks in addition to your On-hit effect skill before dashing out.

Shyvana would just be outharassed by a good Renekton player.

That's my initial assumption too aha. I like the idea of Shyvana, but I don't think I would like to invest in learning a champ for a role I'm already very happy with. Especially since I'm mainly an AP player. Thanks for the quick response!

It would be even... If Shyvana builds tanky... Renek cant burst it fast enough, unless Renek goes full on damage and not tnaky dps. That armor and mr on shyvana ult passive is ridic.

I've only gone solo top once vs Rene as Shyvana. So my opinion is really based on that players skill. I started with cloth and 5. This really let me last a while before I had to go back.

Generally he would slice n dice towards me, if I was fast enough I could hit W before he started his combo on me. If I got the W off I would equal his damage output, after his combo I could usually catch up to him to land a q or e.

That game the lane stayed in my favor, I eventually bought Tabi and Wriggles, he did that same. To bad Shyvana does more magic damage then renek.

I'd say assuming two players of equal skill, probably the Renekton, because his early game advantage would really outdo hers. Don't get me wrong, I love Shyvana, but I feel if the Shyvana wasn't careful enough, Renekton would get some early kills on her, and that would really hurt her transition into mid game.
