Welcome to my first build starring tryndamere

This build is about an alternative look of tryndamere.
With jungling without smite.
This is because smite is not useful in teamfights and when someone equips smite, the enemy team will sometimes target the jungler.

Please do not criticize my English, because I'm dutch.

My test(!) build (witch works) has:

    attack speed marks
    dodge seals + 2 armor seals (needs to be full armor)
    magic resist / level glyps
    armor penetration quint
    attack speed quint
    movement speed quint
this is because of the lack of runes.

The full build should be:
9xGreater Mark of Alacrity (+1.7% attack speed) (so +15,3% attack speed)

9xGreater Seal of Resilience (+1.41 armor) (so +12,69 armor)

9xGreater Glyph of Shielding (+0.15 magic resist per level (2.7 at champion level 18))
(so 1,35 per level (24,3 at champion level 18))

3xGreater Quintessence of Desolation
+3.33 armor penetration (so 9,99 armor penetration)

Tryndamere has a base 10% critical strike chance and it increases by 0.4% per 1% health he is missing.
Passive: Whenever Tryndamere kills or critically strikes a unit, he gains 3 Attack Damage and 1.5 / 2.25 / 3 / 3.75 / 4.5% Critical Damage for 15 seconds (stackable 8 times). Killing a unit or critically striking while not Bloodlusted applies 2 stacks instead of 1.

Skill Sequence

First go for bloodlust, then spent 1 point in spinning slash, then bloodlust again, after that mocking shout.
Max out bloodlust first (with undying rage when possible)
then max out mocking shout.

This is because bloodlust adds damage, crit damage & heal, witch make jungling easier.
mocking shout as second because spinning slash is (mostly) used for chasing & escaping.

I start of with an vamparic scepter, yes an vamparic scepter!
Wait at the begging of the game to buy the scepter & the health pot (10 gold wait)

then buy brawlers gloves and then shoes (mercs for heavy cc, else berserker's greaves).

This is the basic jungling item build.

then is usually build zeal, en then go for infinity edge.
after the infinity edge complete phantom dancers and complete the blood thirster.
after this go for last whisper for more armor penetration.

your build will look something like this:

then your last item is optional:

Frozen mallet - for more hp + slow
banshee's veil - for spell block, health & magic resist
guardian angel - if you don't want to die (at all)
another blood thirster - for more damage + lifesteal
tiamat - for fast creep farming & killing
warmong's armor - for more hp of course!

After your last item, you can consider to sell your shoes to buy another phantom dancer.
and ofcourse:

Why not black cleaver?
The Black cleaver needs quick & fast hits, but tryndamere usually kills people in a few hits, so more health or more lifesteal is better.

Before we begin the jungling guide without smite, I'd like to point out some few things:

    Bloodlust stacks six times
    Bloodlust restores health when activated
    Bloodlust stacks adds attack damage & crit damage

So more Bloodlust stacks + lifesteal = much health when crit.

When you go jungling only activate Bloodlust when:
    On very low health.
    Walking long distances.

The jungle

When you got your scepter & health pot, head to the small golems.
Just hit them and the crit & lifesteal will do it's work.
When you finish the golems, run immediately to the wraiths and kill a smaller one, so that bloodlust keeps his stacks.
then go to the wraith's and pop the health pot.
After the wraiths you can activate Bloodlust, because you need to walk a long distance.
Then go to the wolves, and finally Blue golem.

Then return to base.

after this you can choose to help the lanes or:

go to the small golems and then to the Lizard elder.
Don't activate Bloodlust so you hit harder at the Lizard elder!
then just randomly jungle as you please, or go to help lanes.
the dragon is not to be underestimated because your attack speed will go down.

So in short:

1st run

wraiths (no pic yet)
Acient Golem (blue buff)

2nd run

Lizard elder (red buff)
