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.
This build is rather simple for our little Bear-Turtle, the idea is that it lets Udyr tank with ease starting at around level 6.
I choose the runes I'm using because they all help you at different phases of the game, but are helpful at all the stages of the game.
His Quints are there so that you can initiate and escape. When bear's up you're crazy fast and that's a scary thing for the other team.
His seals let him dodge several attacks when you've got monkey stacked, so it's a little edge.
His marks let him do a little damage against towers and helps you get some kills early game.
His glyphs are so that you can spam all four stances in team fights and never let the shield drop while tanking.
The Skill Build:
This skill build is based around early game pushing and supporting your teammate. Save your stun for when someone gets dumb and let your ally kill them for you. I choose phoenix over tiger because the extra AP makes turtles shield much stronger.
The Item build:
You start with the bead and potions so that you can lane until you have enough gold for warden and boots. When playing conservatively and with a smart lane mate you'll just run out of potions by the time you are ready to get boots and wardens. From there it's all about being a tank with lots of AP. The more AP the harder you are to stop because of turtle power!
The Play style:
It changes based on who you're with in the lane, but for the most part just stand around and kill minions. If you're good and have a good ally you can tower dive at level 3-4 if they are low enough health.
When you get into the ganking phase, just stay near the middle of the lane and have your bear-turtle ready.
Once you've got the Abyssal you can basically walk up to other teams and turtle your way to victory while your team smacks them around. If you see someone trying to get past you just bear stun them to death.
