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.
hello, this is the first build i've made on mobafire so im sorry if it isnt up to standards.
my primary objective to this build is to one help new players playing trynd, and two is to help difuse older players to the champs constant need to span crit items..... they changed him... some players say for the worst but personally i think the new fury systems is a big buff to him. SPAMMING PHANTOM DANCERS IS NO LONGER NEEDED......or even worth doing!
like i said before trynds early game can really influence his mid and late game the reaoson i choose the spells i do are for primaryly early game.
Ghost is a great defensive offensive skill excelent for chase downs or escaping beat downs. your gonna want thixs one for sure.
now the second is a personal preferance. i like Ignite cause 9 times out of ten it gets me a kill early game that i wouldnt have gotten with out also it can be used defensively, i've noticed that for whatever reason when you ignite someone they call of the attack..... i just chaulk it up to stupid people and go back and heal but hey if it works it works lol.
Now my runes are fairly generic i use these for multiple reasons. the flat armor pen marks help so much for early mid and late game kills that i use them on most characters however, they've become almost necesssary on trynd. early game kills are essential with him. he is your carry and as such needs to feed if that is on champions then great have fun kicking in they're teeth! however if you cant get a kill then you need to farm up like crasy. NEVER STOP FIGHTING with trynd never. theses marks will make the earlier much more probable.
second your flat armor and magic resist seals and glyphs. these i like alot on him they help you stay in lane longer with your Bloodlust and help you to be more aggressive when you need to remember pick your timing well..
Last but not least we have our crit quints. these help you one, deal more damage and two, build up you fury bar we want to build this as much as possible this allows us to kill and at the same time helps our survivability the only thing i dont like about these quints are they become almost worthless late game but if they do then you've built him right and dont need the help anyway.
my masteries are fairly self explanitory you attack they die you level up.....rinse and repeat!!
alright now down to items.
Phantom Dancer, The Bloodthirster and Infinity Edge these are you core your bread and butter more often then not however these should not be repeated. with trynds build and crit you shouldnt need anything else to kill with but if you do then look at these items rather then spamming.
- The Black Cleaver this item is great if they have a ton of armor plus it boost your attack dmg and speed while reducing they're armor i have never really needed to buy it but it is a good choice.
- Guardian Angel by far my favorite random item on trynd if you dont need anything in particular then buy this for these reasons
1: you can tank and destroy a tower by yourself
2: it works great with your ulti just wait for the passive to kick in get back up hit two more times regain full health and slaughter everyone infront of you! say gg and walk away with ulti intact.
3; it makes you much tankier then people expect this along with net you kills as they will think they can take you expecting you to be yet another mindless trynd spamming phantom dancers
- Trinity Force if you feel you need some more attack speed/ power/ ap/ life / crit then look no further best item in the game by far sure the extra mana is wasted but thats the only thing not usable by trynd and yes trynd does use ap check Bloodlust again if you dont believe me.
- Banshee's Veil cc a problem? solve it banshee's veil will make lux morg and anyone with a stop or stun think they're gonna be ok up until the point they die.
- Hexdrinker another favorite of mine... if your to much of a threat and they decide they want/need Thornmail then this item is amazing not only does it give you passive magic resist but also has a sheild for magic dmg and attack power plus its only 1800 nuf said? another one of my favorites i buy it along side of Guardian Angel with an ap heavey enemy team.
there are many other items that fit the bill essenstially with trynd one of the things that make him so great is that after core you still have two open slots available for whatever you want!
now lets talk about why we dont spam Phantom Dancer or Infinity Edge
lets do the MATH or rather i'll do it for you now with out runes and just core items Phantom Dancer and Infinity Edge 55% crit chance that means every two attacks or so you'll crit, now with his passive saying that every time you hit something you gain 5 fury and ten fury for a crit strike then in two attacks you have 20 fury (5+5+10) now if that was a minion and you killed it you have another 10 fury so now we're at 30 fury now each one of those point of fury give you .35% crit chance which at 30 gives you an additional 10.5 crit chance bringing us up to a total of 65.5% crit chance and grows until 100 fury which you acheive just by attacking to 90%... so basically your criting every hit once tyou hit 100 fury so kill 3 4 minions and your set. why then do you spam an item for crit that you dont need to trust me, pick one of these items earlier mentioned or any situational item of your choice instead of duplicating. like i said before he has one item worth duplicating in his core and thats The Bloodthirster
Creeping / Jungling
now jungling is something i would really like to talk about now. even if you are not starting a game as a jungling trynd (btw i will be posting a guide for jungling him shortly i dont have enough experiance with it yet) you still need to jungle him tryn should NEVER STOP FIGHTING![/u] guess what i've said it before and i'll say it again if you have to go anywhere then kill all the creeps/minions/monster inbetween here and there.. first off you need money for trynd to function which means lots of farming and jungling but also you need to keep that fury going thats the main reason, if you see a team fight starting to brew build it up before you go in you'll be 100% more usefull and have a much better chance of surviving the encounter if you do fury is now your life blood dont waste it! however your job is to deal dmg for the team so dont leave them stranded either you have to use your own judgement when it comes to this so choose wisely.
Alright folks thats everything i can think of right now if you have anything to add then please by all means make a comment below also if i think of anything else i will update this occasionally. Also i am working out a jungle for trynd so if you want to try that route with him then definately check back cause from the few customs i've tried jungling him he definately looks promising. One more thing i have a lot of characters and if there is anyone in particuklar you have a question about or if you want a guide and i think i can do it then by all means ask and i will see what i can do!
