Introduction



Hello and welcome to my new Tristana guide. This will help you climb the ranked ladders and become an adc main as you will carry every game. Tristana has helped me carry myself and my my team even if I have had the same ****ty support. I would really appreciate any feedback or questions that would help me improve this guide, thanks a lot.

// Basically just take damage but the most important is Devastating Strikes as this will boost your armour pen from your Last Whisper by a lot.

Q: Why not take Spell Weaving or Blade Weaving ?
// Tristana has high cooldowns and does not use abilities as much as champions such as or and therefore these masteries are not very strong and I would not recommend them.

Summoner Spells

Flash is very useful as it gives Tristana an instant escape that frequently saves your life or secures kills so you can recast Rocket Jump.
Heal is good as it can save your life however it can be countered by , Ignite means you heal for half if it is on you so be aware of supports that take ignite.
Ignite can be used for a higher kill threat in lane but be aware that if you get behind you have to play extremely safe. Barrier can be used defensively against a strong laner such as Leona, Graves or Caitlin

Champion Abilities

Draw a Bead
Increases your attacdk range as you level.
This increases the range of Explosive Charge and Buster Shot. This increase in range means that Tristana scales really well into the late game but is not very strong early on.


Rapid Fire
Increases your attack speed for a short time.
The cooldown of Rapid Fire is lowered if you auto attack an enemy with explosive charge on them

Rocket Jump
You jump towards your cursor.
As you land you deal AOE damage and do an AOF slow

Explosive Charge
Places a charge on an enemy that explodes after a certain time.
The explosive charge as an AOE damage affect and every time you kill a unit Tristana's cannonball burst into shrapnel, dealing damage to nearby enemies.

Buster Shot
Fires an enemy away from you
This can knock back other enemies at the same time if they are very near by.

Items

Items




This item gives you movement speed and attack speed, perfect for kiting around a teamfight

The Infinity Edge means your critical hits will do more damage and gives a good amount of damage for most of the game

I believe Phantom Dancer is better on Tristana as she already has good wave clear and burst so doesn't need that from Statikk Shiv

You need this item for it's armour penetration which will help you take down tanks.

This item gives you lifesteal which is very useful but the main reason of purchase is that it means your autoattacks do 8%of the targets current health as damage. This is very effective vs tanks and gives you the tag: 'Tank Shredder'

How to play

Tristana is a marksman so obviously has to stay near the back during teamfights. During the early game her range is very average so you should stay near a tank and place an Explosive Charge on them. This is especially effective if the target is cc'd as you can get full stacks and do the most damage. During mid game when you have your Last Whisper and maybe Blade of the Ruined King you have to sit near the back and try to destroy the tankier members on the other team while your other damage dealers kill their carries. Make sure you are near a tank so that the other teams carries can't jump on you. If they do you can use Buster Shot to blast them away and get help. NEVER USE Rocket Jump TO JUMP INTO THE OTHER TEAM You are squishy and this will get you killed instantly. Only Rocket Jump for kills if you are sure there are no other enemies that can kill you.
