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.
Hey guys, just wanted to let everyone know that this is my first guide and I'm relatively new to League of Legends, but this guide has been working for me, I've had tons of success since I learned how to build Tristana! If you guys have any feedback, or constructive criticism that you would like to give me, please let me know, any and all feedback is appreciated.
P.S. This is an aggressive build, play it that way, but don't get yourself killed being kited.
Thanks for reading,
Pros / Cons
Heavy damage dealing
Not a squishy Tristana build
Fairly easy to figure out
When you learn how to play, soloing bottom is an option
You have the option to be aggressive
You can easily own, if you know how to use your ultimate
You have ridiculous attack speed
You are squishy until mid - early late game
Your ultimate is tough to master
Gank squads usually come knocking at your door
When you push you'll die, unless you just take it and leave it (I suggest it)
When pushing the bottom lane, if you have a support character with you, make sure you're both being very aggressive, not so aggressive you're dying constantly, but you should have some kills by the time you hit level 8 or 9. You both will have to be on top of things, if your support hooks someone, you'll want to use Rocket Jump to jump on top of the enemy, and Explosive Shot so that they're slowed and they have a damage over time effect on them, from there, you can try to use Rapid Fire and chisel their health away until you can use Buster Shot for the kill.
When farming, knowing when to attack is key. You're going to want to make sure you're as far away from the minions as possible, and always make sure your hand is on the right mouse button, be constantly moving, and wait until the creeps are one hit away from death, and shoot them. Make sure you constantly have your damage gauged, so you know how low they need to be for you to get the kill.
When playing Tristana you need to remember that you're not a tank, and that you're not invincible. You gotta know when to hold em' and when to fold em'. For beginning game bottom lane, see the Team Work chapter. Around level 12 or 13 your team and the opposing team will begin to roam the map more, since they know they can handle doing damage, and having items that are good enough for them not to die, and that make them able to push. You're going to want to be in with the Gank Squad, and make sure that you always come in either behind the enemies or behind your friends. You have Rocket Jump which when you land on an enemy slows them 60%, which means, when in gank squad if you use that your team will gobble the enemy up. Just make sure you remember the key points of combat.
Be aggressive, but not overly aggressive
Hit fast, hit hard
It's not a kill unless it's ultimate
When in doubt Rocket Jump out
