Introduction



Hello everyone, I am Allvarreth. Welcome to my guide to Bruiser Trundle Top/Jungle. This is my second guide and, like my first, has a lot of work put into so feedback really helps. Trundle is a quite difficult champion, but once learned he serves as a strong and entertaining pick. This guide will go over building and playing The Troll King as an AD Bruiser. I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read my guide and ask that if you like it you upvote.

Abilities




King's Tribute: Trundle's passive is great for both Laning and Jungling. The sustain it provides allows Trundle to stay in lane for very long periods of time. It also is part of what makes his camp clear so phenomenal, because it allows him to arrive at each camp with extra hp gained from killing the last. It also is boosted when standing on Frozen Domain to provide even more superb healing.

Chomp: Chomp is Trundle's only source of damage apart from his basic attacks and ultimate, making it very essential to his kit. Chomp steals a portion of the opponents AD, being buffed for twice the amount stolen. This is a great damage boost for Trundle and allows him to duel very well. You will be spamming the **** out of Chomp in combat

You should max out [Chomp] first as jungle/top and second as support.
Tips and Tricks
  • Chomp is an effect triggered on the first basic after use, so any on hit effects will trigger with Chomp
  • Because it is a basic attack Chomp is also sped up by attack speed



Frozen Domain: Frozen Domain is Trundle's gap closer and escape tool. If you can, try and place Frozen Domain where you will be fighting for the next little bit, as the stats are invaluable. Frozen Domain also has a secondary use as a speed boost for escaping enemies
You're going to want to max out [Frozen Domain] second as jungle/top and first as support.

Tips and Tricks
  • Frozen Domain's healing boost applies not only to lifesteal, but to your other abilities. Because of this you should try to use your ult while on it and be on it when finishing off monsters in the jungle
  • Use Frozen Domain upon leaving the fountain to speed yourself up while heading back to lane. Even just a little boost helps.



Pillar of Ice: Pillar of Ice is perhaps my favourite of Trundle's abilities but is also the most challenging one to use. It is your only CC, apart from the meager 0.1 second slow on Chomp, so you'll be using it a lot to catch up to and run away from enemies. Being terrain you can totally block off someone and slow them for 30%-50% for 6 seconds. That's insanely long for CC.

You're going to want to max out [Pillar of Ice] last as jungle/top and first as support.

Tips and Tricks
  • One great thing you can do on Trundle's pillar is actually stick someone to a wall pick putting them between the small space between the wall and pillar. Pretty sure this is a bug, but hey, it's there.
  • Trundle's pillar can also act as a knock back if placed directly under someone. Just be careful to place it so that they are positioned towards the side you wan to knock them to.



Subjugate: Trundle's ultimate ability, Subjugate, is the super-weapon that makes him such a formidable force on the rift. The armor steal and healing combined with up to 35% max health damage melts tanks like their butter, while simultaneously making trundle nigh-invincible. This is the tool that gives him his title of dueling god. In a duel pop this ability and if you play it right they won't stand a chance. In a teamfight just ult the tankiest member of their team and wreak havoc as their frontline crumbles beneath your wrath

Bruiser Items

Bruiser

Boots of Swiftness are extremely strong on Trundle as he has no hard cc and is entirely melee. You can take mercury Treads or Ninja Tabi if necessary but in most cases I'd take Boots of Swiftness

This item is highly effective on trundle and very important to this build. It synergizes so well with Trundle's Chomp and Frozen Domain that you will win 99% of duels. It's not really in the best place right now but is still an essential to Trundle

Great Item for Sion. Increases your magic resist by a great amount and gives you some damage through AP and the magic resist reduction aura

Deadman's Plate gives a great amount of armor and HP, stats essential to Trundle, alongside a passive practically made for The Troll King. It has great synergy with both your w and q to allow you to get to and stick to enemies easily.

Spirit Visage is the best magic resist item for Trundle that money can buy. Alongside its great HP and MR it provides a great boost to healing through HP regeneration and the + 20% healing passive. It's synergy with his W, passive and lifesteal makes it perfect for him.

Sunfire Cape gives the same great amount of Armor and HP as Dead Man's Plate and also similarly provides a great passive. The aura proves great consistent AoE damage for teamfights and is dealt as magic damage so your damage becomes more mixed. In the jungle you take Cinderhulk since it's basically the jungle version of this item

Support Tank Items

Tank

Boots of Swiftness are extremely strong on Trundle as he has no hard cc and is entirely melee. You can take mercury Treads or Ninja Tabi if necessary but in most cases I'd take Boots of Swiftness

Face of The Mountain is the fully built tank support item. It provides health and health regeneration, 2 of Trundle's strongest stats and is really the only viable option when it comes to gold income Items

Ruby Sightstone is pretty standard for supports, allowing you to get a lot more wards on the map and still take a red trinket to clear the enemies wards. The only stat on it is 500 Health which does not go to waste on Trundle. Please do not combine this and Face of the Mountain into an Eye of the Equinox

Deadman's Plate gives a great amount of armor and HP, stats essential to Trundle, alongside a passive practically made for The Troll King. It has great synergy with both your w and q to allow you to get to and stick to enemies easily.

Locket gives some nice Health and Regeneration as well as little resistance but the real value comes from the passive and active. The active allows you to shield yourself and teammates around you and stacks with your shield from Face of the Mountain and the passive gives magic resist to nearby teammates. After all, as "Support" your job is to support your team, it's in the name

Frozen Heart provides 90 armor, the second most of any item in the game so it allows you to tank those annoying ADCs late game. Also with the 20% CDR it allows for more pillars which is always a good thing. Similar to Locket of the Iron Solari, Frozen heart also gives your team an aura of protection, only against AD instead of AP.

Spirit Visage is the best magic resist item for Trundle that money can buy. Alongside its great HP and MR it provides a great boost to healing through HP regeneration and the + 20% healing passive. It's synergy with his W, passive and ult makes it perfect for him.

Sunfire Cape gives the same great amount of Armor and HP as Dead Man's Plate and also similarly provides a great passive. The aura proves great consistent AoE damage for teamfights, which is useful since as a tank support you don't really have time for damage items
