Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Tiger Stance: The best spell of Udyr, it gives you AS and a LOT of damage for 2 secs!
BUT, that's not all, it has only 5.6 secs cooldown, what makes it even harder!
Turtle Stance: Not that good, only if you have to reduce the taken damage, but if you are a good UDyr, you don't get that much damage!
Bear Stance: My second favourite, stuns for a whole second and gives you a big Movement-Speed bonus, which is perfect for hunting any enemy. Second good thing of the stun is, that it works all 6 seconds, so it is the best stun of all in my opinion!
Phoenix Stance: I don't like that stance, of course it is good to jungle if you got a lot of AS, but if you buy AS-items with Udyr, you are wrong!
You don't need Phantom Dancer or anything like that, with the Core you'll get there is enough AS!
1. Vampiric Scepter
-> Wriggle's Lantern (Why? All you need for early game!)
2. Boots of Mobility (Why? You get 441 movement-speed!)
3. Frozen Mallet (Why? One word: SLOW!)
4. Madred's Bloodrazor (Why? You own any tank with that item!)
5. Infinity Edge (Why? Perfect match with Tiger Stance, you deal hard crits and lot's of damage!)
6. Banshee's Veil (Why? You get health, mana and a block for spells, all you need in lategame!)
The runes you should use:
9 Greater Marks of Desolation = Useful with lots of heroes, with Udyr it makes you Imbalanced!
9 Greater Seals of Intellect = Why Mana? Simple answer! In the beginning the stances take lots of Mana, so you don't need to go b all time!
9 Greater Glyph of Alacrity = That little AS-bonus is all you need for early game!
3 Greater Quintessence of Desolation = Perfect match with the Marks!
All in all you get:
You don't need more in early game!
Pros / Cons
+ One of the best DDs in game
+ You are faster than any hero, except Teemo!
+ Perfect ganker, run out of the bushes and own anyone
+ You deal mass damage and get less damage
+ Tower got 50% HP and there are no minions left? Tiger Stance!
+ You got less HP? Enter the jungle, Turtle Stance, 1 sec later Tiger Stance! Shield stays, you got Lifesteal, clear?
+ Enemy running away with low HP? Bear Stance, Ghost, Slow, Stun, Tiger Stance, DEAD!
- You need your partner on bottom lane in early game to support you, 'cause you need a fast kill!
- IF the enemies gank and you are out of mana (never happened to me) you are easy to own!
- Very expensive build!
To play Udyr is not very easy in my opinion, you get owned very fast if you play him wrong!
I hope you like this guide, because I hope there are more players that like Udyr, one of the best heroes in LoL and still balanced!
This is my first guide, I would like to get some notes what to do better etc.
Thanks for reading!
