Hello this is my first Trundle and my first guide all together. Enjoy!Trundle is a very under rated champion in all play. His abilities may not CC, but he has a great slows,melee damage that does decent amount of damage, with contaminate increases in movement and attack speed plus crowd control reduction, and a great slowing pillar which can be used two ways, helping teammates survive or kill them (sifnasty). Trundle is a hard champion to kill if you have no chase abilities or something to slow him down. Good for fun and a great champion. He is also a sustained jungle. Plus he rarely gets banned, has good jokes and is tanky.
good for tanky champs with armor pen, armor and magic res, You will get health and and more attack items in game so its not necessary to get those runes.You might ask yourself why doesn't he have tankier runes that is because i feel as if trundle isn't as useful as a full tank and a team member would be better to be a full tank. Armor pen is essential on trundle so you do more damage if you don't trundle wont do nearly as much. Also you could put more damage in your rune page since it scales with trundle's Q(bite)
Greater Mark of Armor Penetration
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
make sure to have Runic Affinity for your buffs since trundle needs blue buff, no need for tanky masteries because you get tanky items in this build anyway and in early game you want that extra damage.Your going to want to put 21 points into offence and 9 in utility
Tanky Items with damage and attack speed and magic res. get vampire scepterfirst so you get the life steal with the bite, also soon you can let your teammates get red buff since you will be getting a phage which has a slow along with the pillar of filth.Build according to the enemy if there AD or AP
max bite, then contaminate then great ganking when you hit level 4 when you get pillar
Ghost so when you use the pillar you catch up also for chasing, also for escapes, using ghost and contaminate will make you uncatchable
Smite for jungling and killing neutral monsters
Or you can use Flash if you prefer it instead of Ghost
Creeping / Jungling
get vampire scepter first so you get the life steal with the bite then level 4 great ganking with pillar, great sustain, use contaminate for getting the red buff for the attack speed buff also get dragon as many times as possible to give your team the benefits of the gold to go into their and your items
he has a great slows,melee damage that does decent amount of damage, with contaminate increases in movement and attack speed plus crowd control reduction, and a great slowing pillar which can be used two ways, helping teammates survive or kill them.Use pillar of filth to trap the enemy
tanky but with damage great slow and sustain, pillar can trap the enemy and slow them, contaminate gives trundle buffs in attack speed and movement speed which help greatly in team fights and in 1v1 situations also getting neutral monsters in early game jungle. Also with trundles passive(Decompose)- whenever an enemy unit near Trundle dies, he heals for a percentage of their maximum health, which works very well with Baron and in the jungle.
(Decompose)- whenever an enemy unit near Trundle dies, he heals for a percentage of their maximum health
- Trundle bites his enemy taking some of their attack damage
- Trundle infects a target location gaining attack speed, movement speed and crowd control reduction while on it
(Pillar of Filth)-Trundle creates a plagued beacon at a target location slowing all nearby enemy's
-Trundle steal some percentage of the enemies health, armor and magic resist, over the next 6 seconds that amount gets doubled
Pros / Cons
movement speed and attack speed buff
rarely gets banned
low starting movement speed
not a lot of CC
Great for ranked play if your team needs a jungle since he is an offtank. Also trundle doesnt get banned,great sustain in jungle and good ganker. Make sure to get teammates to guard blue in the beginning so the other teams doesn't invade.
Kill many neutral monster while jungling also late game kill minions to get money for the items
If you learn to use pillar of filth correctly Trundle can be a great ganker that does a ton of damage and is also tanky, great for team fights helps teammates get a lot of kills.
