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.
Heya. Thank you for taking time to read my Udyr jungle guide.
I play udyr as a heavy off-tank jungle Udyr, he is my favourite champion,
instead of playing with 3 spells and a ultimate you got 4 stances,
Tiger stance, Turtle Stance, Bear Stance & Pheonix Stance, to Stance dance your enemies.
Udyr is hard to master, but in my opinium the funnest champion in the game, since hes unique and takes skills to be good with.
Now on with the show ;o) .
For my runes i went
9x Armor Penetration mark runes (red)
9x Dodge Chance seal runes (yellow)
9x Flat Cooldown Reduction glybt runes (blue)
and 3x Movement Speed quentessence runes (Big runes)
Thats it! A handful of easy to find runes you probably already have sitting around.
Ghost is good in any situations, for early games or late games, i prefer saving my ghost where it is needed, for either escaping or chasing someone down, in situations like where they got stuns snares, fear and other crowd control champions, since Udyrs weakness is stuns you want to use ghost for that,
As i said, Udyrs weakness is Stuns and other cc's so i pick cleanse to stay out of trouble, with ghost you can escape any situations ganks, stuns, and other stuffs turret diving..
For starting items i prefer damage from a long sword, since Udyrs Turtle stance works better the heigher damage, and then a health pot so you dont need to go back before lvl 3-4 or something like that.
When you hit around 1000 gold i go back to buy madreds razor and normal boots, and go back to jungle, until im lvl 6 where i start to gank someone,
When having enough money i go back to buy Merc threads, like i said, cc's your weakness, and merc is your friend to keep you out of dangerous ganks and stuns ;o)
Now i rush until i can buy madreds bloodrazor, this item is your damage along your tiger stance, it will rip your enemies apart!, my combo is to start a gank with Bear stance, then Tiger stance, keep stunning him with bear and rip him off with Tiger, use Turtle if there is more than 1 enemy,
I build thornmail in optional situations if they have good carries, dps champions, it will kill themself while you tiger turtle them and bear if they wanna escape the fight. with this item you can easily pick off 2 dps champions in solo already.
In early game you always have your red buff, and even though you got a frozen mallet, you still want too get your red buff anyways for the dot for your tiger stance, this is your survivebillty item along your thornmail, more health for fights and for making them eat your thornmail up if they target you.
More health, health regan and armor ofc, and useful in team fights, you cant slow everybody or stun everyone in a fight, unless you got this precious item ;). just press your key where you puttet your Omens, i prefer it as my 1 item so its easy to use everytime.
You no longer need your turtle stance unless you are alone and they really want you dead, but with bloodthirster you should be fine, unless!! unless you are out of mana, which you wont be if you keep getting golem then you should be fine..
all though i never ever fully completed my build too a bloodthirster, only to randuins-Omen but you might want it if you havnt done the game before that.
So, Let me know how it works, and have fun! +1 If you like, And.. well -1 If you think it needs some changes, But criticism is welcome! So please leave comments. After all any positive changes I can make, I will.
