Introduction

Thanks to the_nameless_bard Amanda/Angie hehe im evil

I do not think anyone knows this but I have a passion for Udyr and didn't want his secret to be revealed that Phoenix Stance along with this build,can make you push most enemies with and without sustain out of lane and just excuse my French his AOE ****'s on top laners very hard the reason I did not want people to know this I just like people thinking Udyr is nerfed and he sucks top.

And then get first blood on them and then people going WTF OP champ nerf which makes me so happy and most going tiger and dealing lots of single target but does not stop champions like Nasus last hitting where as Phoenix Stance allows you to cs on enemy tower and hurt them on it making him one hell of a threat.


Guide Top

Pros/Cons

Pros
Amazing AOE
Helps the jungler's ganks be more effective
Farms very well
Pushes towers amazingly well


Cons
Not as much damage as tiger stance


Guide Top

Solo Top Laners

Try and get ganks on him as soon as you can and try and stop him farming so he cant build up that damage on his Q Siphoning Strike his Wither annoys me so much so hard to 1v1 with that he can be beaten just is very hard just harass early level 3 and keep pushing him back please buy sight ward and ward river and then you should be fine.

Easy win lane she has no sustainability just last hit pressure her with your combination whenever she goes for last hits and please buy sight wardthen ward river so you do not get ganked then first so you can out burst her along with philosopher's stone and then that broken sword will remain broken and not reforged on her death bed.

In my opinion easy lane you can out burst him and you scale better early and mid game to late game than him and can out heal him with Turtle Stance were as his heal needs fury yours does not and fury on Renekton takes ages to get and keep the advantage with Wriggle's Lantern as your next item after philosopher's stone and you should have no problems against him.

no sustain and has mana problems has a lot of crowd control so if things are not going his way be wary of ganks so keep that river warded with sight ward because if the jungle pops out he can imprison you within Cataclysm and then they will both burst you down

Garen can over power you early game but mid game when you get some damage you can make him cry and out sustain him just be wary if your health gets low of his ultimate
Demacian Justice and you should be fine.

Has more sustain but his mana early game and mid game is his down fall he runes out really fast so harass harass harass and drive him out of lane place sight ward down in river dodge his Rupture and keep harrasing him as he goes to last hit also if your low from a gank be carefull of sustaining of minions his ultimate Feast does true damage and is a big burst of damage and you should be ok.

Very hard and now even more people have discovered hiss potential thanks DUFFTIME:) anyway you need to get Wriggle's Lantern and then Heart of Gold or maybe even warmog's armour to just survive the harassment from his E Reckless Swing.

He has major mana issues but has an advantage early game but when you hit level three use the combination wait for cool downs and repeat until he gets low enough and finish him do not forget to sight ward river good luck and do not chase if you are low because Poison Trail will probably get you extremely low or dead.


Guide Top

Items

Boots

These are effective to dodge auto attack champions like Irelia Nasus Shyvanacan dodge Nasus and his dreaded Q siphening strike and some of his regular attacks and shyvana is mostly auto attack based.And has no crowd control affects so it is pointless for you to get them for her also you have your passive Ionian Fervor combined with masteries when you dodge will make you move ten percent faster.

First of all this stacks with her passive making you a lost resort target to use their crowd control on since Ionian Fervor combined with mercury's treads.Is a great choice against that sort of team which will allow you two burst down there squishiest champions before they wipe out your team.
Damage per second items
As I have mentioned before she is a tank damage per second champion and I get this item instead of trinity force for the following reasons it provides: a lot of ,attack speed magic damage and magical defence for that ability power nuke that blows you up in team fights and helps you sustain so much more because of magic damage per second it gives also.

This item gives you a free ward which saves you some gold some more life steal armour and damage and allows for faster dragons and barons if you just need more sustainability be sure to pick this item up.


I get this item since it is cheap and provides me with burst and some ability power and mana everything that is great on Irelia rolled into one item I will explain why this is such a good item for her in the skills section of my guide.The reason I do not upgrade it into trinity force until later is Trinity Forcejust gives me a slow and some move speed.Which is not always required due to the fact of I have equiliberium strike for a stun or a slow effect and critical strike is useless on Irelia also Trinity Force is a very expensive item.Were as if I get sheen and wit's end it is not much more than Trinity Force and gives more sustainability and damage output also in certain cases is better than a Recurve Bow first if you need more burst fast.

This item can be useful if you want to spend most of the game with building it up and you wont be as much of a tank and it is really an expensive item on Irelia personally I prefer my build.But if you want to upgrade sheen after a defensive item feel free remember it scales on base damage so getting it after a defensive item is fine more levels = more attack damage.
Magic resist items

Love this item it makes sure that they cannot shut you down if they have a lot of crowd control spells like stuns snares silences this is the perfect item for these scenarios from my experience.Because Force of Nature just provides health regeneration magic resist and movement speed where as the veil might have less magic resist and no health regeneration It has the ability to block that requim which force of nature does not that is my opinion on the subject.

Removes all current crowd control effects and new ones applied will be at a lower duration combines with your passive and mercury treads you are pretty much an immoveable force were crowd control effects are concerned.

This item provides a lot of health regeneration combined with Hiten Style to really see them numbers rolling I would say take this when the enemy team does not have a lot of crowd control effects.
Gold per five items

philosopher's stoneA must have on Irelia she has some mana issues and also gives more health regeneration and some gold per five if you use her abilities to frequently just use them to harass the enemy.Until you get this item then use your Q skill Bladesurge to last hit and push the lane so you can go buy other than that last hit that simple were farming is concerned.

Another gold per five item some health and builds into my main armour defensive item
Armour items

Mass health regeneration a ton of armour that slows there movement and attack speed if they hit you and last but not least a mass area of effect item every few seconds which gives more area of effect in a team fights and allows you to slow most if not there entire team if they try and escape this is when this item should be used no other times in my opinion.

Is useful against a lot of auto attacking champions for example Tryndamere after you get omen to deal that high damage per second back to them and giving you the chance to hurt there ranged attack damage carries damage back to them.
Starting items
Provides a lot of sustainability and allows for a fast philosopher's stone which solves her mana issues and is usually the best choice but it varies on the champion that is against you if you are against another Irelia I would suggest rushing Ninja Tabi and make her not being able to hit you some of the time with Hiten Style thus not allowing her to heal of you while you heal of her and most of the time wining your lane.

These are useful as a first item if you are up against a skill shot based champion like Gragas so you can dodge them barrels with ease and dive and burst him then rinse repeat.And get philsopher's stonethen mercury treads therefore making him under leveled and a Gragas with no farm is a useless one and you should be able to get a kill on him a few times.

Is useful against champions that can burst you down quickly like then if you build Ninja Tabi against her it is to good not to because her Q mark of the assasin.Needs an auto attack to proc and if you have dodge it lowers the chance of it procing on you Also is good against the following champions Garen Nasus Riven Irelia.

Masteries

These masteries allow me to push a lane very hard and very fast which helps me to make there solo lane useless with much more ease then you would with 21 points into defence I feel in the case of solo top Udyr more offence gives you more defence.

I take three into attack damage to help me last hit and push even better summoners wrath on ghost combined with Bear Stancewill make you untouchable when pushing towers and trying to get to safety Easier than you would without this mastery the 6% attack speed bonus is great for even more power Demolitionist you want to make them pay for leaving the tower unguarded this is why you get this.

Havoc gives you more damage combined with Executioner gives you great burst and finally sunder gives more penetration so more power and vamprism gives you even more sustainability.

These runes provide me the best damage from Phoenix Stance possible and gives me more possible mana and health from Turtle Stance from my experiences these are the optimal way of playing the way I play him provides you to push a lane so easily so you can go buy or help other lanes push and gets you lots of towers and makes you an AOE nuke in team fights=awesome.
Give me even more survivability on top of Turtle Stance are good against them bruisers you get solo top some hit very hard early on these are used to counteract that with resistance.
For them ap tanky champions like Cho'Gath that try to get you dead before you can do a thing this is to counteract them also helps if the jungler is Fizz or Fiddlesticks.
Same reason as red runes just more attack speed can be used to proc Phoenix Stance more times than it would without them.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Completely viable in ranked play and works well in ranked play and also really helps his jungler pull of some amazing ganks here is a video of hotshotgg doing so.
Thanks to GeneralWiser for the video he is amazing
To summarise If you want an AOE nukeing dps which ***** on most solo tops due to his amazing range and also is used often in ranked but in higher elo solo top aswell as being tanky dps Udyr is your best pick for this situation.

Introduction To Tiger Stance

Thanks to the_nameless_bard Amanda/Angie hehe im evil

Tiger is great for bursting targets down to nothing there like fluffy marshmallows to you its pub stomping time deals ''Phreak: Tons of damage''which it really does it has a ratio of 150% of your attack damage so if you feel you need to burst that champion like Riven down this is the stance for you 1v1 makes you pretty much unbeatable can out burst most champions at level one.


Guide Top

Pros/Cons

Pros
Can outburst most champions at low levels
Great 1v1 with this
Hits towers hard


Cons
No AOE
Cannot push to a tower very fast
Gets pushed to tower with ease

When To Use Tiger

Against champions like Riven Garen Skarner Ireliabecause if you out burst them you can deny them farm deny them farm deny them gold deny them gold= useless
and phoenix does not have the power to do it with the champions due to the fact of them haveing shields to break through or having a lot of dps which Phoenix Stance cannot compete with as well as Tiger Stance can.

four in attack damage because the skill scales of attack damage so that gives Tiger Stance 10 more attack damage at level one which will give you even more of an advantage also the summoners wrath mastery your Ghost will make you nearly impossible to catch combined with Bear Stance also Executioner gives you 6% more damage when there below 40% health and with tiger stance they will be nearly all of the time.

Udyr's Skill Set

great passive dodge chance some attack speed riot is re working this passive soon hopefully to buff it up to other tanky dps fighters standards
the attack speed is useful for Phoenix Stance
His burst skill you max this if you really need to burst that down before he even gets the chance toyou or for that Garen screaming DUMBASIA!! every second and charging in and getting first blood on him.
This is your sustain skill which gives you the upper hand against that Karthus thinking he's low requim then WTF always funny has saved me from that countless times great skill massive mana and health regeneration always good great skill.
Your stun helps in ganks for your lane and extra movement to help you escape if you are getting ganked by the opposing team it is your get in get out skill use it to stun the carry so your team can pile on him.
The AOE nuke that ***** on people skill if you need to start pushing to towers this is the skill for you no there skill can do it better or faster than this one great for nuking the enemy in team fights also.
To summarise you want to teach that Irelia a lesson for messing with solo top this will completely devastate her and she wont dare come near to last hit and will make the jungler gank you a lot more but that is a good thing because he will not catch you and kill you most time and he will spend most of his time ganking your lane instead of going others letting them push with ease and also lowering the solos level to the duo lanes which is the goal.

Greater Mark of DesolationThese runes provide armour penetration which I will be lacking so it allows me to deal all my burst early to mid game combined with masteries so that full tiger damage combined with Sheen will devastate them also.These runes damage for both Tiger Stance Phoenix Stance due to the attack speed and armour penetration that is needed and the additional attack speed from tiger helps so much to push and burst out that lane. .
Give me even more survivability on top of Turtle Stance are good against them bruisers you get solo top some hit very hard early on these are used to counteract that with resistance.
For them ap tanky champions like Cho'Gath that try to get you dead before you can do a thing this is to counteract them also helps if the jungler is Fizz or Fiddlesticks.
just more attack speed can be used to proc Phoenix Stance more times than it would without them.
To summarise if you do not need all of the survivability that Turtle Stance offers I suggest you use this build variant to quickly push the enemy out of the lane fast and very hard.

Introduction to Cho'Gath

The way I build cho'gath may be considered weird to some people but I build him like hotshotgg does so if you call it bad you are essentially calling one of the greatest players in LOL bad The way I build him is an of tanking dps beast.

Pros/Cons

Pros
Tanky dps
Strong solo top


Cons
not full ap not full dps not full tank

Summoner Spells

Since you have a knock up and Flash cool down is to long to be reliable any more and the range is awful this is definably the best option in the new meta for getting your *** out of there.

I take this a lot more now because you cant trust your jungler especially ones in solo Q to cover your lane while you go buy or go heal and this solves the problem to that as well as late game teleporting in to support your team as a battle begins.

Items

cho starter items

This is useful against heavy dps like Garen Riven Nasus Tryndameredue to all the armour it provides and along with Health Potion gives you a lot of sustain against these sorts of champions.

Provides so much mana regeneration and health is a phenomenal item for him to have if you feel you can hold your lane I really like this start on Cho'Gath
because of all these contributing factors.
Thanks to General Wiser for the video

Provides a lot of mobility just nothing else if you feel you need to duke shots and be more mobile this is the start for you it just provides nothing else under certain circumstances great against like a Gragas against a Riven not so much.

So much mana if you are new to him this is the start you want because you can cast abilities a lot more than an other start and 2 health potions so 400 more health great start for new starters.

Why not these lovely things all of your abilities deal magic damage so why not place magic pen so you deal more damage to the enemy solo top than you would otherwise with other set-ups.
As I have said he is a tanky dps why not make him more of a tank with these and so the enemy bruiser does not eat through you like a marshmallow.
More resistance against casters so they cannot two shot you like LeBlanc can if you did not take these are too good to pass up at this moment in time against casters just take them and be thankful you did.
More damage since you have enough resistances to keep you alive for that pesky solo so you can deal more damage his Rupture scales 1:1 with it so 15 more damage yes please.

Cho'Gath Skill Set

Is what makes you so sustained at top just keep the last hits rolling and then just be mostly immovable from lane combined with Feast usually takes 3 to 4 enemies to take me down.
Can provide you with great cc if you can land this ability most times you will be fine with Cho'Gath and also can provide you with an escape which some solo tops do not have an ability like this.
Great silence and good burst when combined with Rupture Feral Scream Feast is your main death combination and the silence is so long and deals decent burst and quite a good ap ratio
Use this to last hit early on and turn it of if you are pushing to much remember to angle so you can hit solo as well as creeps and works very well with Wit's End which many people don't know and helps you push them so easily while dam ageing them when they go for last hits.
Gives you a lot of health which means Force of Nature is more effective on you and lots of health regeneration during a team fight and also it deals 1000 true damage to creeps and 750 to champions higher than Olaf.

Full 21/9 because you do not get more damage until after Warmog's Armor the should suffice until this occurs so you have sustain and a bit of power to shut them down early just farm up and make them pay for harrasing you with a Parrrley to the head the attack damage is useful because parley scales well with it increased critical chance to help atmas out and more damage which is also to good to pass up on.

Gangplank Skill Set

useful to help the jungler gank basicly a free lizard buff on auto attack such an amazing passive.
His main skill one shot of this hurts but if it crits oh that pain is so much more the thing about gangplank is he is squishy and gets focused in a team fight so be careful in team fights if your with any other build but this one allows you to get in there and just push them away I prefer this way of gangplank.
Very good makes you able to jump in and out of team battles very effectively its a cleanse every 22 seconds so worth it love this skill removes everything but Fizz ultimate I do think.
A free steroid buff for you and your team yes please so good at pushing towers with and just everything more move speed damage what more do you want really helps your AD carry.
I cannot come to words with how much I love this skill helps him support his team wherever he is and has massive cc 7 second slow decent range 120 second cool down so good that is why he is banned a lot if you did not know.
