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.
Trundle is one of the most under used champion and I am suprised why. In my opinon Trundle is THE BEST off tank in the game. One of the best 1 v 1 champions. and great in team fights. Has good jungling and great ganks.
My runes are desinged for jungling. Attack Dmg Marks for more Dmg in his ability Bite. Armor Seals and Glyphs, so that the neutral monsters do less Dmg to you. Movement Speed Quintesences because you never finish your boots til half way through your build, and to move through the jungle faster.
These Masteries aer also set up for jungling. Reduced Dmg from minions(monsters). Armor, Reducing Dmg taken, increased Dmg to minions(monsters), Flash and Smite.
These items are setup for jungling, but work just as good in a lane. Since Trundle has no natural lifesteal from basic attacks, he is a cloth armor jungler. Try and make your first B when you have enough to by Wriggles Lantern and Basic Boots(Boots of Speed). Wriggles Lantern, is the best jungling item because of armor(reduced Dmg done to you), Dmg(deal out more Dmg, and get more Lifesteal), Lifesteal to gain life back. Frozen Mallet is THE BEST off tank item, health, a small amount of Dmg, and your basic attacks slow enemies. Then Merc. Treds, Magic resist, and Tenasity. Since you are an off tank Atmas Impaler gives you 2% of your total health into attack Dmg, and MORE ARMOR!!!!!!! Guardian Angel.... cause it brings you back to life.... nuff said. Warmogs Armor, to benefit that Atmas Impaler, and for health regen. Sell the Wriggles Lantern because it is a weak item late game, for a Bloodthirster.
Creeping / Jungling
I'm new to making builds so i had a hard time putting a map with arrows on it for the route... SO, i will just tell you. start at blue and use your bite on one of the small golems. Smite the buff golem, and begin attacking the other one. Continue using bite when available. Once you get to half health, use a health potion. Then move on to the nearby wolves. Little ones, then the big one. after move to the 2 golems by bot lane(if blue) top lane(if purple). Use another health pot after the little one is dead and you are attacking the big one. Make sure you are still using bite at all times. Now smite is back so move to the wraiths. Smite the blue one and basic attack the red ones. Go back to wolves and use another health pot if neccasary. Upon reaching lvl 3 begin looking for ganks. If you are on blue team, make sure the solo laner is on bottom lane, if purple, top lane. Try not to die, continue ganking and jungling. Try and find enemies making mistakes, and punish them. When you are part way on the Frozen Mallet, ward with your wriggles lantern to protect you. reach lvl 8. and at FULL HEALTH, you can take dragon, dont be shy to ult it either, its only a 60 sec. cooldown and well worth the gold.
These are the spells I use. Once again, no pictures. sorry :(
