Not Updated For Current Season

The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Introduction

I know what you're saying. Omni. This is Tryndamere. The Crit King! Why are you building him AP?

Because if you look closely, his E is totally built off ArPen, but scales better with AP than with AD! This means that with the spellblade mastery and a little dash of Crit, you'll be spinning around Summoner's Rift getting triple kills with ease.

This guide is a work in progress, I am trying my best to get clips of games that I can throw in here explaining certain things you do with AP Tryndamere that you don't do with other Tryndamere builds, so keep an eye out!

Pros / Cons

PROS -

    High Burst, High Sustained Damage

    Good Mobility

    Good Sustain (late game)

CONS -
    No lifesteal means you really don't have that early game sustain or 1v1-ability. Your Q heals you for 5-600 damage every 5 seconds, but if it's on cooldown, prepare to be bursted.

    Will be CC'd all day, only have one Cleanse

    Team will be fine with you before they see AP Items, then rage at you for trolling.

Skill Sequence

R>E>Q>W

Early game you can't really do this, but once you get Morellonomicon up, you can Q yourself in lane for the base heal on a fairly low cooldown for that sweet, sweet sustain.

E Scales higher with AP than AD, and it deals PHYSICAL damage. What this means, is that our ArPen is fantastic at making this AoE rapidfire whirling poombah of death do even more damage. It also means that bads will see AP Tryndamere owning faces and maybe they'll buy MR and you can laugh at them.

Ult is ult. Drop a point into it when it comes up, use it for diving or escaping, never initiate with it, and cleanse off those pesky ignites.

Summary

AP Tryndamere farms just as well as other Tryndamere does. He offers decent sustained damage with fantastic utility-burst (spinning in deals AoE, then you can W for Damage Reduction). With the new S3 masteries, you're dealing ~13 magic damage per auto, which isn't a lot, you're also running with a pretty high attack speed and crit chance.

Give it a try in bots before you take it into normals and then finally, carry some dudes who are screaming at you for trolling!

For the Manatee Nation!
