The problem with her isn't that she's weak; quite the contrary, she's very strong. The problem lies in how she's overshadowed by.. well, any other bruiser or caster. They all have something she lacks; all she gets is resistances for free (like J4, once more, except he gets a touch more armour and it's, again, not on his ult) and a kit that radically changes her skills.
Her dragon-form skills? Stronk. Scurreh. Gotta give her that.
somewhere in the world theres somebody with a bigger **** than you.
somewhere in the world theres somebody who types faster than you.
somewhere in the world theres a 9 tailed fox who has a bigger cult following than you.
somewhere in the world there's somebody whos better at something else you do.
For every one thing you have there is probably someone else who has it better, but what are the odds that there is someone exactly like you but better in every way?
J4s armor shred does do more and is always AoE
but J4 is not manaless
J4 has no speed buff
J4 has only 3 damage abilities and becomes trapped in an encloser when he uses his ult
shyv can apply onhit with AoE abilities, J4 cannot
Shyv can shred armor in a cone rather than a linear shot
Shyv needs only one ability to close the gap, J4 needs 2.
Shyv can jungle faster
Shyv can apply AoE magic over I much larger area (W>R)
and lastly shyv has better cooldowns
Every bruiser fighter has something she lacks. Just like every other bruiser fighter lacks something every other bruiser fighter lacks
