Introduction

HELLO MY NAME IS xXFINISHERXx


Hey everyone my ign is xxfinisherxx and i have been playing the game for about an year now. I do not consider myself a pro, but i love to help friends with builds and guides. I used to play udyr but i was terrible, so i quit playing him. However, recently i started playing him again and I see what my error was before. I play him in ranked and normal games now and i absolutely love playing him. He is a great champion who doesn't get the credit that he deserves. I see guides on mobafire but they are all outdated or the guide is not very well thought out, so i decided to create my own.

Why 9-21-0 masteries

Some people believe that a 1-20-9 build is the best for udyr so that he could get the maximum amount of move speed. However, it is effective; but it weakens your late game productivity because you will not have the 10% armor pen. which will be important late game. Udyr is a beefy champion who needs health, armor, and magic resist so that he can initiate a fight and then escape when needed to. Udyr relies on movement speed to be able to quickly engage a team fight, and be able to escape when he is at low health. The extra move speeed from the defense masteries is beneficial for his early jungle and his late game escapes. U want the 9 points in attack so that udyr gets the bonus a.d. and the 4% a.s. As udyr, you want to be able to get into a fight, deal tons of damage, and then run away with almost no health left so that your team could get the ace. Defense masteries are important for junglers because they speed up their jungle routes and give them some protection from minions and enemy champions.

Runes

- You want to have attack speed marks for quicker jungling and for quicker activation of your r ability. These runes alone can save a jungler an extra minute or two if used properly and in combination with the other runes.
- You want to have armor seals because they provide the extra armor to protect udyr from taking a lot of dmg. from neutral creeps, and armor is good to have for ganks and turret dives.
- You want to have mr/ lvl glyphs because by the time you get to lvl 6+ the runes become better than flat mr runes. These runes are important for chasing down enemy champions who are dps casters.

- These quints are the most important on udyr. Udyr needs a good deal of ms because he needs to get close to an enemy to stun. Also, move speed helps him get through his jungle faster and allows him to counter jungle the enemy jungler. M.S. quints are important for chasing down/ getting first blood.

Abilities

-
Monkey's Agility
Entering a stance grants Udyr 10% attack speed for 5 seconds. This effect stacks 3 times.
Pretty self explanatory passive which is amazing if you have blue buff and for an even quicker jungle.

-
TIGER STANCE
Persistent Effect: Udyr's attack speed is increased by 20/25/30/35/40%.

Activation: Udyr gains an additional 15/20/25/30/35% attack speed for 5 seconds after activating Tiger stance. While active or for 5 second after Activation, Udyr's next attack deals 150% his attack damage plus 30/80/130/180/230 over 2 seconds as magic damage.

Cost
55/50/45/40/35 Mana

This skill is not the best skill to start with but it is an alternative to phoenix stance because of the activation ability. The true damage from this ability comes from the part where udyr's next att deal 170% his a.d. plus 30/80/130/180/230 over 2 secs. as mag. dmg.

-
Turtle Stance
Activation: Udyr gains a temporary shield that absorbs 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+50% of ability power) damage.

Persistent Effect: Udyr's attacks cannot crit, but he restores 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 / 18% of his damage as health and 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9% of his damage as mana.

Cost
55/50/45/40/35 Mana

Udyr's turtle stance is one of the most lifesaving skills he has. It can completely block a karthus ult at higher levels and the lifesteal and mana steal is very important for his jungling/ sustain. This move is maxed second because it is essential for a long surviving jungle.

-
Bear Stance
Activation: Udyr gains 15 / 18 / 21 / 24 / 27 % increased movement speed for 2 / 2.5 / 3 / 3.5 / 4 seconds.

Persistent Effect: Udyr mauls his target with such force that they are stunned for 1 second. This effect cannot occur on the same target for 6 seconds.

Cost 55/50/45/40/35 Mana

This skill is essential for ganks but shouldnt be maxed early on. You can either choose to max it third or just put 3 points into it. At lvl 4 you should have 1 point put into it so that you can gank lanes easier. This skill helps you escape and counter jungle quicker.

-
Phoenix Stance
Activation: Udyr sends out pulsing waves of fire dealing 15 / 25 / 35 / 45 / 55 (+25% of ability power) magic damage each second to nearby enemies for 5 seconds. In addition, Udyr's ability power is increased by 16 / 24 / 32 / 40 / 48 and his attack damage is increased by half of that amount.

Persistent Effect: Every third attack, Udyr engulfs enemies in front of him in flame, dealing 40 / 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 (+25% of ability power) magic damage.

Cost
55/50/45/40/35 Mana

Phoenix Stance is the most important ability early game and mid game for your jungle. It gives an aoe effect and it gives additional damage which makes jungling so much easier. This skill does a lot of dmg early game and mid game against champions also. Just remeber to activate it if you are close to an enemy and they are very low bc most likely the aoe dmg will get them.

Skill Sequence

THE SEQUENCE OF SKILLS



You want to first start out with phoenix form so that you can clear the wolves and blue buff faster. Then, you want to take Turtle stance to recover some of your health and mana ( keep switching between the two forms for your passive's ability and for the activation abilities). Max phoenix stance first, but put one point into bear stance at lvl 4 so u can gank. Max phoenix stance A.S.A.P and after phoenix stance max turtle stance. Max Tiger Stance 3rd and leave only 3 points into bear stance.

Summoner Spells

Best-- Best summoner spell for udyr to help him engage and to help him flee when he is low. This summoner spell is extremely helpful offensively and defensively.
- If you are not using this summoner spell; then something is really wrong with you. You need this to make your jungling quicker and to secure buffs such as golem buff, lizard buff, baron buff, and dragon's exp and gold.


Good but not the Best-- You don't really need it because you will have a good deal of move speed already from bear stance and from m.s. quints.
- Good if other team doesnt have a flash and if you are very fast. However, it takes away your flash which means you can die easier and quicker during a team fight.
- Fine if you are tryig to get first blood or to stop other team's crazy health regenerators like ww, singed, mundo, and volibear.


Should not be used-
All the rest of the summoner spells are not ideal for jungle udyr because they do not help him that much during a team fight.- cleanse might bea little effective but not worth it in the long run

Jungle Path


JUNGLE UDYR TIME.
First lets get priorities straight f you are planning to improve and properly control the jungle, the times for when the buffs, dragons and creeps respawn is very important.

Top Priority

Dragon Initial Spawn: 2:30
Dragon respawns in 6 minutes
Total XP: 900
Total Gold: 25 + 190 Global

Baron Initial Spawn: 15:00
Baron respawns in 7 minutes
Total XP: 900 Global
Total Gold: 300 Global + 100 Gold to killer


Important

Blue Buff Initial Spawn: 1:55
Blue Buff respawns in 5 minutes
Total XP: 280
Total Gold: 80

Red Buff Initial Spawn: 1:55
Red Buff respawns in 5 minutes
Total XP: 260
Total Gold: 80


Low Priority

Wraiths Initial Spawn: 1:40
Wraiths respawn in 50 seconds
Total XP: Varies depending on time spent alive
Total Gold: Varies depending on time spent alive

Wolves Initial Spawn: 1:40
Wolves respawn in 1 minute
Total XP: Varies depending on time spent alive
Total Gold: Varies depending on time spent alive

Double Golems Initial Spawn: 1:40
Double Golems respawns 1 minute
Total XP: Varies depending on time spent alive
Total Gold: Varies depending on time spent alive

For Udyr u first start at wolves . Then you get blue buff . You go to wraiths and then back to wolves. When your smite is up you go to red buff and by then u should be lvl 4. Gank whichever lane is pushed or is struggling and stun the enemy. Then you can continue your jungle however you want. I recommend giving your 2nd blue buff to mid and ur 2nd red buff to top for maximum harassment of all lanes.


Guide Top

Team Work

When trying to gank always coordinate your ganks with teammates. For example, if Annie is mid against a ryze, Annie could warn u which bush is warded and whether or not ryze has blown flash or not( if hes good he most likely has not). Also, use pings to indicate where youll gank from and when u will gank. Without communication, your ganks will fail more often and you may end up dying. Never forget to ask your teammates what summoner spells are up for them so you know what damage they can do.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

I really do not know what to say about ranked games than normal games. I recommend in ranked games you try to counter the other jungler so that they do not harass your team. For example, you can have your team hard leash your blue so that you can steal their red and mess up the other junglers ability to gank.

In Ranked I:
- Always Have Your Team Protecting Your Buffs from Getting Stolen
- HAVE YOUR TEAM PROTECT YOU IN THE BEGINNNING
- ASK YOUR MID LANE OR BOT LANE TO LEASH
- GIVE YOUR BUFFS TO OTHER LANES, THEY NEED IT MORE THAN YOU
-GANK OFTEN AND WHEN POSSIBLE
-CAMP A LANE IF THE OTHER PERSON IS HAVING DIFFICULT TIMES
-CONTROL YOUR URGE FROM CUSSING OR GETTING ANGRY B/C THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO FAIL
- COMMUNICATE WITH TEAM AND COMPLIMENT THEM
-WARD THEIR CAMPS ALSO
-LOOK FOR ADVANTAGES AND TAKE THEM
-ALWAYS GIVE TEAMMATES A SECOND CHANCE. OR 5TH IF NEEDED.

Conclusion: Short and Sweet Guide

I hope that i have helped people understand how to play udyr better and how to jungle a little bit. The guide isn't very long, however, it covers the major points that need to be addressed about udyr and his jungling. If anyone wants me to make them a guide pm me, and i will attempt to make a guide( not saying that i always will because i have school, work, etc.).
