Welcome to my 1st guide Tristana: best DPS



Abilities:



Draw a Bead
Increases Range as you level.
Be careful Early game cause most other ranged champs out range you, play very defensive until level 6.


Rapid Fire
Percentage attack speed increase, for 7 seconds.
Great for knocking down turrets while no one is paying attention.
And beating the **** out of anything that gets too close to you (or chooses to run).


Rocket Jump
Trist flies to target direction causing AP damage and slow on what ever she lands on.
Never use this offensively unless u r absolutely sure no one will be ganking you.
It's crazy in combination with your ulti, but really risky to use.
Can also be used in close combat, but REALLY ONLY if u r sure u won't regret having used up your rocketjump.


Explosive Shot
Active: alittle AP damage over time, reduces healing by 50%.
Passive: stuff blows up that you kill.
Crazy for farming, and reduces healing effects by 50%. Be sure to hit those jerks that pop a health potion or that have crazy life steal.


Buster Shot
Real good AP damage, and knocks opponents and everything in the trajectory flying.
Great for early level 6 kills.
And great to keep people alive with, including yourself.


Summoner skills:



In my opinion, two summoner abilities,that benefit Tristana the most, are Ignite and Exhaust.

Exhaust, combined with Cripple, not only neutralizes physical attacks of your enemy, but reduces their armor and magic resist for the duration.

Ignite reduces healing and deals true damage over time, tough it can be absorbed(*). This summoner ability, i will dare say,scales with Explo shot.


Runes and Masteries:



3xGreater Quintessence of Desolation
9xGreater Mark of Desolation
Both adding armor penetration, which you just cant enough of.

9xGreater Glyph of Furor
9xGreater Seal of Furor
Both adding additional critical strike damage, which will help alot on your damage output thoughout the entire game.

Advised mastery build - 21/0/9 :
21/0/0 is basic so remaining 9 mastery points can be spent wherever.
Utility tree, Awareness 4/4 gives you an edge over your opponents early in game and mid game.


To pick a lane



Mid lane is for Tristana.
Further assumptions and discussions will be made on axiom that you, Tristana, are in middle lane, unless explicitly said differently.

Items that you want:


There are many nice items you can buy, but which ones Tristana utilizes best?

Items for Tristana should meet following needs :

Primary needs: Attack Speed and Attack Damage - provide good dps
Secondary needs: Lifesteal and Critical Strike chance - provide healing and additional damage
Tertiary need: Health points

Item builds for Tristana are not strict, you should adjust your builds to the game in progress.

Optimal attack speed varies between 1,5 and 1,7 attacks per second.
