Threats to Tristana with this build

Threat Champion Notes
2
Miss Fortune Miss Fortune is a fairly easy matchup. You can knock her out of her ult with your and use jump to avoid it. Just be careful during early laning phase of her q and just focus on farming since this is Tristana's weakest phase.
2
Caitlyn Caitlyn is another easy match up similar to Miss Fortune. Be careful during the early game since she will out range you. Late game you will outscale and can fight her.

Introduction

Hi guys! I am Ventriloquîst and I main ADC on the NA server. I have been playing League of Legends since season 3. I have always been fascinated by the ADC position, but it wasn't until Season 5 where I really focused and worked on it. I was previously a top laner and loved Wukong, Xin, and Jax. Tristana is my favorite champion and my best. I also really enjoy Lucian, Ezreal, Corki, and Draven. I hope you take some time to look at my guide.

Items

Whenever I build Tristana, I use the items above. I always feel that Infinity edge should be rushed. It has such high damage and is a great compliment to Rapid Fire cannon. In my opinion, Rapid Fire Cannon is stronger than Statikk Shiv because the Tristana already has amazing range, so due to its passive, the first shot has massive range. Also, Tristana also have great wave clear with her E active and passive. She does not need the Statikk passive to help wave clear.

Bloodthirster Vs. Mercurial Scimitar

I usually prefer to go with Bloodthirster because the shield passive is very OP. If the enemy team has good CC such as ramus or Shen, I then would take Scimitar. Also, QSS removes the mark on Zed's Ultimate so anytime I face a Zed I build Scimitar.

Sterak's Gage VS. Gaurdian Angel

I personally prefer the Sterak's Gage for a few reasons. The first is that often times with GA, you will revive once your entire team or close to it is dead and you will get nuked right away. Second, the Sterak's Gage is partially an offensive item because of the 25% base damage passive and also the increased damage you get when the shield activates. The third reason I like it over GA is because you can still get nuked with GA. The shield from Sterak's Gage is basically a nuke preventer and if the enemy team cannot nuke you, they will focus someone else. This provides you more time to sit and do damage, and with lifesteal you will sustain health since none of the large damage abilities will be focusing you.

Tips and Tricks

1. The standard combo I like doing is Q then E them and start hitting for the bomb passive. Your jump will reset when the bomb explodes or on a kill/assist. If you jump on the target after you hit them a fourth time, the damage of your jump will double and it will proc the 5th hit and explode so you can jump out right away. Use this strategy if you are 1v1ing an enemy, not during a huge team fight (unless you are winning and using this to clean up kills).
2. This is very similar to the first jump method but instead of jumping, you ult them on to trigger the last bomb tick it will do crazy burst damage and can often half health the enemy. This will cause the base damage of your ultimate to hit and then proc the bomb damage because the ult counts as the 5th hit to explode it.
3. Do not be afraid to use bomb to clear waves and easy farm, however, do not fight when it is on cooldown and watch out for the enemy trying to engage when they see it on CD.

Summary

I think Tristana is one of the strongest ADC's in the game right now. Her high burst, range, and mobility are such a strong combination. Thank you for taking time to read this guide and I hope its helps you and gets you Freelo.
