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.
Ok so this is one my first guide and 2 this is my personal build (which i think pwns completly).
So i first got tryndamere after they nerfed his Q i think it was. So many people told me not to ( i obviously did it anyways) and imo he is one of the better champions out there IF YOU KNOW HOW TO USE HIM!!!! So on the first time that i have seen a free week tryndamere he used his ult on going into battle...... Yes this is probably a well known fact BUT YOUR ULT DOES NOT PREVENT DAMAGE UNTIL U ARE AT 1 HP!!!
I have named this guide the wife beater. As is obvious i beat ashe with my giant sword i alot so i get called a wife beater..........
I chose these masteries basically for my AD page. my runes are not perfectly set up at the moment for trynd because well i spent ip on champions. The current runes i ahve are armor pen armor and cooldowns with a few crit dmg quints. ( this works fine if u want to use them)
The offensive masteries are obvious.... if you dont think so leave. the utility help out but if u want to be more tanky type dps then feel free to put some in defense.
yes i choose to go with a blood thirster first..... You ask y? Because although yes his early game increases a lot with a infin edge first it in my opinion is better with more survivablility. This helps out a lot. The phantoms can be built fast when you backdoor.
So you max his Q first for the extra dmg. His spinning after again for more dmg and his mocking shout last because it alredy slows so you in my opinion only need 1 point in it for the entire game but you have to put 5 in eventually.
Flash is a good choice on him if u dont know how to use his E. I choose ghost because if you are chasing someone and turret diving like a boss you wont get hit as much and will likely not have to use your ult combined with exaust this is in my opinion the best combination ( recently i have been experimenting with Tele and exaust seems to work well for pushing lanes)
OK trynds early game is realllllly bad. But if you know how to use him properly when he is squishy it works out fine. A great laning parter for tryndamere is alistar. This works great when a person gets brave and alistar uses his flash or even just running behind and gettin a easy kill with turret assistance. Early game you will not crit as much as you may like this is ok. just save ur fury for the extra crit chance and if needed use it to heal. With tryndamere u can be much more agressive at lv 6+ oter then that u can just sit back and last hit minions and spinning slash out. Around lv 10-13 tops you should have your arvice beserkers greaves and blood thirster. This is the time in the games i have played people start to teamfight. This is not a great time for you.
Ok now into mid game. So now you should at the VERY LEAST have your blood thirster. Now is the time to start backdooring a bit. Of couse be carefull. If you dont see them all on the map back out a bit and run. ( this is where teleporting comes in handy if you decided on that) so you need to backdoor till you get your bloodthirster around the time that you get that you should be hitting for around 500 or so a hit. If a squishy is coming to try and kill you and you have ur ult hey look a free kill. ( This happens a lot for some reason. ult is not needed most of the time when bding but if you are gettin ganked by like 3 people u might need it) Once you get a phantoms you should be able to teamfight a bit if your still worried get a inifin edge ( you are good to kill the carrys and after the tanks because you do so much dmg) In a team fight you should be going for the squishys first afterwards you can destry the tank. So build your Ininity Edge and look at the enemy team.... Are they building armor? If quite a bit of em are building armor you might want to go with a black cleaver for the armor penetration, if not get more survive i recommend ANOTHER blood thirster.....
Late game you should be a killing machine finishing off your youmumus ghost blade. this is good for extra crit and AS. They will fear you by this time and you should be able to jump in kill and get out and if you have to end up popping your ult to survive ok u get out hit a few things in the jungle and get back in there.
Pros / Cons
You kill everything
You are a bit more squishy if focused
A thornmail helps them a lot with you
So basically you become a kiling machine and if you see an ashe on the other team dont forget to say in all chat "im sorry i forgot the milk again....." WEll thank you for reading my guide on tryndamere hope you enjoyed it and i hope you find it usefull
