Welcome in my build of Tristana, the Megling Gunner.

Pros:

    Can deal crazy amounts od damage
    Great chaser/escaper
    Good farmer with Explosice Shots passive

Cons:
    Squishy
    Mana-hungry

Summoner Spells:


Exhaust is always very useful. You can use it to gank enemies or escape from the gank, get rid of an annoying melee dps champ etc etc


It is always nice to have in team somebody who can get quicky near the tower which is under minion's (or/and champ) attack. With Teleport, you are such a champion.



Other skill suggestions:


Ghost can be helpful with chasing/escaping, seems to work good with Tristana.


You can use Flash to get behind enemies'es back and knock him to your tourret/teammates. Of course, you can also flash in/flash out from the battle.


Ignite works pretty well together with Explosive Shot and can give you some unexpected kills.


Skills explanation:

Use Rapid Fire to destroy enemy structures amazingly fast, to kill a huge wave of minions attacking your tourret and against slowed/stunned/snared etc champions (in other words, don't waste it if your enemy can get away from your shooting range)


Rocket Jump is your main chasing/escaping tool. Don't use it:
- to kill minions if you are not 100% sure that any gank can suprise you,
- to initiate teamfight (xD)
- for harrasment,
Better ideas of using RJ:
- to escape from the battle,
- to slow your escaping enemies,
- to get behind eniemies back and use your Buster Shot on one of them,


Explosive Shot is the best to harras your enemy. You want to have 5 points in this ability as soon as it possible, because it allows you to farm well and last-hit a few minions at the same time thanks to its passive. In addition, it is great tool to attack enemy champ, do some DoT (Damage over Time) and sometimes kill him when he thougts that he managed to escape.


Buster Shoot deals a lot of damage and can roll your enemies off thanks to knocking off. You will have to do some practise to learn how to use it though (it can help your enemy to escape and your team can write some strange words to you, like "OMG", "NOOB" "WTF?!" xD)


Item explanation:

Nashor's Tooth seems not to fit Attack Speed Tristana build, but I found it very useful. It makes you less mana-hungry with mana regen. Additionally, you can deal a bit more damage with your abilities and use them more often. What is important, your Attacks are faster at the same time.


According to me, Phantom Dancer is the most powerful tool for Tristana. Do I really have to explain, why? :P


Infinity Edge is a brillant item and works pretty good with Phantom Dancer.


Frozen Mallet makes escape from you almost impossible and gives you some more attack damage.


Other Items Suggestions:


Last Whisper can be very useful against heavy-armor teams.


Bilgewater Cutlass allows you to stay in the battle a little longer with Life Steal and makes it harder to escape from you with its active.


Buy Sword of the Occult when your stats are like 4/0/0 and you are pretty sure that it will be even better.
