Introduction

Udyr the bearmn is a melee hybrid fighter-tank.
Udyr can take on multiple opponents, chase them down with good run speeds and keep them buttoned with stunning attacks and on top of that he has good survivability.

This guide will help you get your on your way with udyr in dominion. Note that this build focusses on solo play with udyr, giving him much more damage, but less tanking skills. If you have a good team that already has very good AD champions, you might want to take more tanky items (Frozen mallet instead of entropy and Force of nature instead of sanguine blade, also a hextechgunblade instead of the sanguine blade gives him more survivability on his shield) to fulfill your role as a support tank much better.
Udyr is really a man of many ways, so try to find your own balance between attack speed, damage, lifesteal and health.

Champion Spotlight



Great spotlight on classic map, nothing more to it. Watch it and learn.
Notice that he needs different runes and items, for he is a jungler on classic which works much differently from teamfighting that dominion has.


Guide Top

Runes

In dominion, udyr works differntly from classic udyr. He has to build more damage in order to compete with other melee champions like xin and tryndamere, but also has to be able to be a late game tank. That`s why the runes focus on early game damage, with attack speed and armor penetration and the early game items do the same, whilest the late game items warmonger and armor give him extra high survivability.


Guide Top

Masteries

udyr can perform two roles. He can be a melee fighter, or a hybrid tank. So 21/9/0 as well as 9/21/0 are good options.

I picked the first because i like to be of more offensive use, but the other choice is definilty as good as this one.


Guide Top

Items

As i said before, udyr can be used in two ways. The attackspeed fighter, or the facechecking tank. Pick either the items listed above, or those in the introduction chapter.

You might notice that, as for any tank, not every build is the best one for each fight. So try to match the defensive items with the demands, counter their strongest players. Force of nature against mages or hybrids and thornmail + health against Attack damage hero`s.

Skill Sequence

balance them all out, with your W as mainly highest priority. If your opponents are all fast: skill E more, if they have a lot ad melee: skill Q and if they fight in large groups: skill R.

Summoner Spells

Udyr can ake any combination of ghost, fash, garrison and exhaust, depending on the needs of your team and your own gameplay.

Summary

Udyr is a very strong support fighter and can initiate fights and live. He regenerates life quite fast, he can absorb incoming damage and he can pin down enemies for a short time. Combined with entropy or frozen mallet, no enemy will escape from udyr`s claws.

Keep in mind that you are never a solo champion and that you are only as much a hero as the rest of your team, so always play together.

Credits

I hope you enjoyed this build and found it somewhat helpful. Ofcourse there are many ways to play a champion and this is obviously just one of them. If you like the build give it thumbs up and if you totally disagree, dont flame, just make your own build and people will eventually choose the best one for themselves.

I bid you all a good game and have fun playing,
