Welcome to my first build. I chose Trundle, The Cursed Troll since not only is he a new Champion, but he is extremely fun to play if you have the patience to learn his unique play style.

I will use lots of Abbreviations so here is a list.
FB (First Blood)
RB/Bite (Rabid Bite)
W (Contaminate)
Pillar/goop (Pillar of Filth)
Ulti (Agony)
KS (Kill Steal)
BS (Buff Steal)
BB (Blue Buff)
RB (Red Buff)
MIA (Missing in Action)
Miss (Missing)
CD (Cooldown)

As I said before, Welcome to my first Build.
For starters, I want to introduce you to Trundle
He is a very new Champion and new Champion style, he thrives when in the "Zone" and can deal out massive damage in a very short period of time, he also has a tank spanker move that is amazing in making the enemy take DOT (Damage over Time) and buffing the **** out of himself to make him SOO much harder to kill. His Bite is oustanding because it works like Master Yi's Passive if timed correctly, and has such a low CD that early game you'll be double hitting lat a mad man >:P

Summoner Spells

Exhaust - To chase and escape
Ignite - early ganks (can be replaced with ghost if wanted)


I like to max Rabid Bite when possible, followed by Agony whenever possible, then Contaminate, and lastly Pillar of Filth.

Rabid Bite is an instant auto attack, so you want to time it so you do a normal attack then immediately after activate bite and you will get 2 attacks in one.

Contaminate - this is a buff field for you only, it's quite large in area and the buff is rather nice, good for killing things faster, or tucking tail and running when needed.

Pillar of Filth - this allows you to block off escape routes and stop people from chasing you or chase them, it does have a short range, but is very useful if aimed properly.

Agony - This is a rather interesting Ultimate because it does a few things that really hurt your enemy, 1 it steals their health and gives it to you, 2 it steals their armor and magic resist and also gives it to you, and 3 it does it again over the next few seconds, so if thrown on the enemy tank, you get a lot of armor and magic resist, and they become far less tanky :) good for team fights, or 1v1 against most champions.

Time line

Early game
Grab a Dorans Shield and a mana potion and head to either bottom or top lanes. Trundle can get FB pretty easily if you have a lane partner that can stun or slow, because this allows him to put his bite and W spells to full effect, and if done properly you will escape with little damage done to you or your lane partner if the attempt to kill the enemy fails. Just play smart and don't be too greedy. when you get about 900 gold, head back and grab your Emblem of Valor and another mana potion, and just keep farming and harassing when safe.

Mid Game
By this time you should have Madreds Bloodrazor, or at least Madreds Razor and one of the items for the Bloodrazor. This is when you can safely jungle and start ganking if it's not going to turn into a 2v1 or worse, most champions can easily be 1v1 if they aren't super fed. Just remember the rule about keeping your damage up with bite, and keeping your attack speed up with W and blocking escape routes for the enemy with your Pillar.

End Game
by now you should have your Phantom Dancer and be working on getting your Bloodrazor. I've never gotten past a Zeal because usually the game is over by this time. Either you've won or lost :P
