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.
Introduction to Tristana
Tristana is one of the strongest ad carry`s. But Riot says she is easy to play.
But if you want to melt people, She is realy hard to play. The laning face is the hardest with tristana. But if you get true there. You can melt everyone.
For summoners spells, I like to take Flash and Ignite.If you need to face a team with alot of CC, Like Taric Leona alistar, then I recommand to take flash and cleanse. If you get cought then you can cleanse it and flash away, Or jump away to safety.
For masteries I like to go with 21/9/0 Going for attackspeed damage and armor pen in offense, and Health and Armor in Defence.
The skills I recommand u take is going to level your E and Q at the same time. and getting 1 point in W early to have an escape ready when you need to.
To level your spells you need to ask your self, what do I need?
Do I want to poke down my lane opponent by leveling my E, But do I risk pushing my minions in the enemy turret, or do I level my Q for early team fight strenght but low poke to your lane opponent.
If you have a passive lane, with 0 ganks going and just easy farming out. Get your E up first, Giving you the ability to poke with it, If you use the active of your E on a opponent he will gain 50% less healt and he recieved alot of damage early, The scales are like 100 Damage on level 1, that doesnt seems much, but it realy is alot of damage.
If you have a hectic lane with constant ganks and Dragon fights and 2vs2 fights, Level up your Q it will give you more auto hits per second. what means more damage in a fight.
For items i like to start with Boots/3 what gives me enough sustain in the laning face, and enough move ability to poke and run away. After your first back you should watch how to lane went so far.
Are you winning, Are you winning by far? Or are you losing, or is it a draw,
Look to the creep score, and to the kills and deaths that happend.
if you see you are winning by far, Go with 1 Dorans and Breseker`s greaves, a draw lane? Go dubble dorans and boots, Losing the lane? Go Triple Dorans blade. After this its straight for ward.
Get damage (BF Sword) then rush your blood thirster for so much sustain and high poke since IE has been nerved. Then get a Phantom dancer to get this attackspeed, because thats were Tristana scales of, attackspeed, Auto hits are your friend. After get some more damage with Ifinity Edge, after this you need to look. Is my team winning or losing? And do I die much or not?. If you are winning. Get more damage with a last whisper and then Guardian agnle, Are you losing go for GA, after Last whisper. If you are full, Get some pots and enchant your boots.
Runes are important thing to have, Thats why I like to run
9 Marks of armor pen.
9 Seals or Armor
9 glyps of Magic Resictence
3 Quints of attack damage(u can go with attackspeed or even more armor)
