Udyr, The Spirit Stealer
Not Updated For Current Season
Hi, I am Alfz. I have been playing League of Legends for about a year and a half now, and I mainly play Udyr in the Jungle Role. I want to help new players be able to learn how to use this champion, as he is one of the most balanced champions in the game. Currently, I am in the Silver 3 league, from just playing Solo Queue Ranked Games, taking me from Bronze to Silver in roughly two weeks and Udyr has been played a big part in that. So here is my guide to what helped me achieve this.
(EDIT) Im now Gold 5
(EDIT 2) Im now not playing Udyr, but can still easily carry with him, gone to playing fizz atm
it is possible for anyone in Bronze to easily carry themselves out of Bronze and get to the higher divisions like Diamond with my build, aslong as you can master the great Udyr by learning when to farm, when to gank, when to camp, and when to enter and leave a fight, you could become unstoppable, another key aspect to Udyr is the itemization, build pure damage on him is strong, but you become very squishy, and building just armour, magic resist and health makes you do no damage. you need to have a good combination of both damage and tankiness to succeed with Udyr
P.S. This game i had the wrong runes and masteries on, i had movespeed and attack speed with Ability Power,
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Mark of Attack Speed
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
Udyr for the fact that it allows you to get around the map extremely fast, it also works in collaboration with his passive Monkey's Agility allowing you to gank with ease, and have a very fast full clear time.
Udyr, it allows your early game to have 20% cdr with Crest of the Ancient Golem and your runes + masteries allowing you to spam your abilities for fast clear and fast movement. Udyr it allows you to proc your phoenix much more.
these masteries give you everything you need, CDR, Attack Speed, Sustain, and Damage
This item gives you alot of burst damage when combines with your Phoenix Stance proc plus Sheen proc, when you have a Sunfire Cape aswell, all three are doing magic damage to an enemy making them either stack MR to counter just your damage, or not build it at all and decide to try and tank the damage
This gives you the most important stat on Udyr is tenacity stuns and slows just stop his chase potential, and escape potential
This item is super important, if you plan to get fed early, health, armour and burn becomes your best friend, with Phoenix Stance damage, Feral Flare damage and Sunfire Cape damage, all the burn damage mounts up, and late game, when you are not getting focused the damage is constantly hurting their whole team.
This is your bread and butter when it comes to split pushing and one vs one dueling, with the Sheen passive, you Bear Stance, Tiger Stance, Phoenix Stance all benefit from the bonus damage.
this item gives you magic resist and attack speed, also the 42 bonus magic damage on hit, making your DPS so much higher, in conjunction with Feral Flare, Sunfire Cape and Phoenix Stance
Frozen Heart... what can i say, this item gives you cdr, armour and mana everything that Udyr scales well off, with the 20% cdr plus 20 in runes + masteries + Crest of the Ancient Golem
you are phoenix Udyr so you shall start Phoenix Stance however, unlike most Udyr's get Tiger Stance second, this gives you great attack speed and works well with Phoenix Stance, Bear Stance this is for ganking, the movespeed and stun really help Udyr to pull of some devastating ganks. and Turtle Stance is just for taking some free damage and early lifesteal
you should start at the bot lane, for a great leash and early buff, then go to your wraiths, and then seconds buff, either gank top at Level 3, or go to wolfs and rotate back to bot lane, making you either 4 or close to 4, if you didnt hit 4, go to double golems, and kill then to get your level 4, or if bot is extreamly pushed you might aswell farm them before you go and gank them with a Level 2 phoenix.
you want to be farming your feral flare as soon as possible giving you a great power spike, and great gold income, i recommend getting both spirit stone and madreds, it allows you to sustain in the jungle even without a blue, you should always have mana, and depending on how the game goes, whether or not you get feral flare or ancient golem,
