Introduction

Welcome to my first guide for Tristana. There are several guides for AP or AD Tris, so i decided to give you something different, but nothing weaker, the hybrid Tristana. You can play her this way everywhere because of her high flexibility. But I recommend to go as ADC, Mid or Top (depends on enemy champ).


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

To be honest, you can nearly use every summoner spell in any composition, because Tristana gots high mobility and a high damage.

The more common ones at the moment are Ignite, Barrier, Exhaust, Flash, Ghost, Heal, Smite and Teleport. Take whatever you like and you think, that is what I will need.

OK, on a lane you should take Heal or Barrier, just to survive in dangerous situations, but they are not necessary.

Items

You just start Doran's Blade or Hunter's Machete (for Jungle) for the extra damage you will need at the beginning.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

For the Jungle you should know that you better start with Explosive Shot, just for the reason that it´s possible to let jungle monsters run back and forth without giving them a chance to land a hit on you. To attain this you need a dot or an high attack speed, but you can´t have that attack speed on level 1 so take Explosive Shot. Maybe you need a bit time to get a feeling how to do it.
After you hit level 6 it might be a good idea to keep an eye (or even an ward) on the enemy jungle, because you can easy reach and kill an enemy jungler with half or low life (depending on enemy jungle champ).

Skill Order

You need high damage, so take the damage skills. But it´s not to bad to skill Rapid Fire once at level 3 or 4.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

The Pro´s are:

  • high mobility
  • high single target damage
  • both magic and normal damage
  • strong ganks with your ultimate

The Con´s are:
  • very squishy
  • you have to jump in
  • you can help enemys to escape with a bad placed ultimate

The End

I hope you enjoined my little but effective guide for an strong hybrid Tristana. Hopefully you try it out and see for yourself how it works and don´t be sad if it doesn´t work the first time you tried it, just keep on trying.

If there are any questions left or maybe some criticism leave a comment.
