Introduction

Hello!THis is Lzzy423 with my first build...vote me up :D
and pls comment if ur gonna vote me down...
Anyway, this is my guide on AP Tristana!!!


Guide Top

Runes

For runes, i picked flat health quints, beause Tristana is VERY VERY EXTREMELY VERY squishy early game. Without health, ur a dead yordle. Magic Pen Reds...because this is AP Tristana, not AD!!! MP5/lvl yellows, because tristana has pretty bad mana regen throughout the game, so you will need the per levels to continuefarming minions and such. flat AP blues, to do that additional 40-some damage with your rocket jump early game, provided that you follow the item build as well.


Guide Top

Masteries

For masteries, I went 21/0/9, with a point in cripple and embers, to gain your 10 more AP, and to get first blood with exhaust. 15% Magic pen, and havoc. It doesn't matter if you get attack speed, extra damage, or armor penetration, because once again, this is AP tristana. I like to go ArP and some more damage to minions to help farm, but, do whatever you like for those masteries. 9 in utilities, because you really wouldn't/shouldn't put that 9 points into defense...

Items

Start with an Amplifying tome and a health pot, when you have enough money, go back and get a pair of boots and turn that amplifying tome into a sheen! This sheen will allow you to deal more burst with your rocket jump + Auto Attack. Then, you will want to get boots of lucidity, because Tristana has pretty long cooldowns on all of her skills. By buying a nashor's tooth after the Boots of lucidity, you have capped your cooldown reduction :D
Turn that sheen into a lich bane, and get a rylai's crystal scepter to deal even more slow with your rocket jump!
Finally, if you are extremely fed or the game has gone on for too long, you will want to buy a rabadon's deathcap, giving you even more AP. when you get this, your ultimate will do well over 1000 damage, and your rocket jump ~600.

Skill Sequence

Start with Rocket jump if you're laning, which you should if you're going AP. Get your items ASAP, get to a lane with your partner, and wait for those noobs to come to you. jump in, exhaust for double slow, ignite, auto attack auto attack auto attack... BAM. first blood. if your partner is lux or morgana or something, even better. Then, get explosive shot, RJ, Rapid fire...

in general, your priority should be Bustershot > Rocket Jump > Explosive Shot > Rapid Fire.

AP tristana is basically a caster... so don't initiate team fights, let the tank do it. When it starts, try to aim your rocket jump at everyone, move out, bustershot everyone into your team, then explosive shot the DPS and auto attack!!!

When 1v1ing, jump at them, they'll be slowed, bustershot them towards your turret, explosive shot, auto attack them to death. Use your summoner Spells as needed.
