Hi, I'm frog1404 on the NA servers. I've been playing since September of 2011 and have a fine detail of how LoL works. My main role is top lane, and of course, I main as Trundle. I'll be honest, he is easy to play hard to master, just like Ezreal. But once you understand him and play a few games, he will be rather easy. I hope you enjoy this Trundle top guide!
Trundle has a very simple, yet complex kit of skills.
Passive: King's Tribute
Trundle heals himself for a percentage of an enemies maximum health whenever they die nearby.
Explanation: This allows Trundle to sustain himself in lane for a superior length of time, but usually only in mid game. The health percentages don't look like much, but their numbers will add up, healing for one to several hundreds of health every minion wave, regardless if you got the last hit or not.
Trundle's next basic attack does bonus physical damage, very briefly slows them, and steals Attack Damage from them.
Explanation: This is Trundle's bread and butter ability. It allows him to farm faster, last hit easier, harass more, and to top it all off, it's got a short cool down and little mana expulsion.
W: Frozen Domain
Trundle lays down an AoE that, if he is standing on, grants movement speed, attack speed, and bonus healing from self-sources only.
Explanation: Trundle can farm, push, and initiate fights and ganks with this ability, although be careful not waste it as it has a rather long cool down for its duration comparison, so place it in the best location you can.
E: Pillar of Ice
Trundle puts down a pillar of ice that denies access to a small area, and slows the area surrounding it.
Explanation: This is where Trundle shines! Use this ability to initiate fights, save allies, slow enemies, and just troll your friends and enemies if you want to! Be careful though, if used too early or too fast, it can accidentally do the opposite of what you intend it to do.
Trundle instantly deals magic damage to his target, healing himself, and stealing their protections. Over the next four seconds, the same immediate effect will be applied.
Explanation: All you need to know about this ability is you only need to use it on tanks/target enemies, when being ganked and are low on health, and when you want to duel someone who might overpower you. Otherwise, one of the best ultimates for tanks in the game.
