Hello all my fellow Champions! This build has helped me throughout Season 2, Season 3, and Now in preseason!! You'll dominate your lane as Tryndamere and with terrifying power, you'll slay anyone in your way!!

Guide Top

The Beginning of the End

Dominate top lane with your destructive power! With attack speed runes and the early game Infinity Edge, you'll slay any enemy in your path! And in the end, carry your team to victory!

Requirements / Rules

-How to play Tryndamere-
1. Have good awareness around you.
2. Be able to farm minions quickly and efficiently.
3. Not being stupid and using your Ultimate when you have half / full health
4. Help your teammates (Call Mias, if possible, go to where help is needed while still watching over your lane)

Be weary of having people ***** and moan at you. You'll be the "most hated" person in the game. However i'm sure your team SHOULD see you as a star! But if you end up sucking, it's okay, practice makes perfect.

Pros / Cons

-Heavy Critical Strike, providing essential help during team fights
-Everyone's afraid of their reckoning at hand, They'll run like a terrified child lost in a store.
-The sounds of "Rampage!" "ACE" "DOUBLE KILL" "TRIPLE KILL" "QUADRA KILL" "PENTA KILL" will echo through your mind as you blast through the opposition.

-Requires a good amount of Minion kills, and a Champion kill ALWAYS helps.
-Teamfights early and mid game are not always survivable.
-Enemy Crowd control will utterly destroy you if you don't play correctly. (Con for noobs)
-Ultimate dependent till you get Lifesteal
-Lots of money required to build him

Tips & Tricks

-Never abuse the use of your ultimate, it might not have a large cooldown time, but it will constantly save your life

-Save your Bloodlust! It's a big NOOB MOMENT when you use your Bloodlust right when you use your Ultimate. Instead, wait till right before your ultimate ends THEN use your Bloodlust.
-Don't be over aggressive in lane. Just because you have heavy hitting damage, NEVER get cocky, you'll likely die because of it.
-Farming can give you more money than kills! (1 Kill is about equal to 15-20 Minions / Creeps)

-In case you DON'T know, you can use Spinning Slash(E) through walls, this is essential when there are teamfights in the jungle / you need to run away.
-Always use your mocking shout during the BEGINNING of a teamfight, it lowers all enemy ADC's attack damage by 20/35/50/65/80 and slows them up to 60% of their movement speed! By the time the teamfights over, it'll be ready to slow down any pitiful enemies trying to run from your wrath.

(If you guys have any cool tricks you can do besides these, please do tell and i'll add them! with your name included at the end)

One thing to say about this.....NEVER JUNGLE AS TRYNDAMERE!!!!

However, if you choose to, you will be underfed, and you wont be able to get a lot of CS, you better hope that the enemy team sucks real bad, and / or you're really good at ganking.

Guide Top


Farming is IDEAL, without (Minion/Creep) Farming, you can't do anything! Lots of gold is REQUIRED to build a Tryndamere. Each game you should have AT LEAST 150 Minion kills by level 13 if you don't have any kills.

Words of Wisdom...

Practice makes perfect. No matter what, just because you read something on how to play a game, or a champion, does not mean you'll be good right away. You must adapt and become flexible and ready for anything no guide can teach you the "feel" for a champion doesn't matter how detailed it is, or how well you know what to do with a champion, it takes HANDS ON experience to perfect a champion. What i'm saying is, it takes SKILL to play certain CHAMPIONS, especially TRYNDAMERE.
