This build concentrates on Armor and Critical damage. Also, it stacks up enough health and armor to allow tristana to take some damage while dealing out her high critical strikes.

Build is this order:

Boots of Swiftness
You want to get boots to have the ability to chase and run from your attackers. Tristana right at the beginning isn't tough enough to take on a lot of hits, so use the boots to run in and out of battles.

Wriggle's Lantern

This is key, for this build to work completely, farming minion is very important. This item not only deals 500 damage to minions, but it also gives you lifesteal and armor to add some protection. Lifesteal is key, so that it keeps you on the playing field longer, which will allow you to spend more time farming for gold to buy the rest of the items.

Atma's Impaler
Add more citical damage, and armor. There really isn't much more I need to say. This will increase the damage to minions and to enemy champions.

Frozen Mallet
Adds life, and armor along with damage. This is key if tristana is going to go up against tank champions or try to take out an enemy turret on her own. This item is what makes Tristana "tank" like. Very important.

Last Whisper

Attack speed and armor penetration. What more do I need to say?

Now by this point, you should be level 18...and the game should be over. If not you can chose what to buy here. I go with Atma's Impaler for added armor and more critical damage.


Style of Game Play
First and most important, don't get greedy! Remember, tristana is a support champion. Yes she has the ability to carry, but that doesn't mean you can just jump into battle right away.
Tristana's build takes time, you want to soften the enemy before pouncing on them to make the kill. Once you hit level 12 or higher, this is where Tristana can do some heavy damage, also take some herself.
Using Tristana's attack speed spell is very key, along with her cannon. If you can time both abilities on an enemy, you will surely win your battles.

Hug your turrets, with Tristana's jump ability, an easy way to kill your enemy, is have them push your turret, and then jump behind them and with the cannon bolt them into your turret which surely will damage your opponent greatly which makes your life even easier.

Remember, play slow...and be smart. If you feed the enemy with kills, this build will be SO much harder to complete...making it difficult for you and your team. Stay alive, farm your minions, and you will have a winning successful game.
