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.
Hello and welcome to my guide on how to play with Tryndamere. Tryndamere can be a boss if played corectly. Thats what I am going to show you how to do today. So lets start!
WARNING: GUIDE IS BEING UPDATED. NOT A GOOD GUIDE. DON'T READ IF YOU WANT TO FEEL NEGITIVE.
Pros and Cons
+ Rage meter that gives Tryndamere INSANE CRITS!
+ An ultimate that lets you be unkillable for 5 seconds!
+ He rarely gets nerfed!
+ He has a fake flash! (i.e. Spinning Slash)
+ He can slow people that have their backs turned to him! (great for chasing!)
+ He can HEAL HIMSELF (i.e. Bloodlust)
+ He can kill people at the tower that are below half health!
- Rage meter can only give good crits if full
- Tryndamere is HARD to play early game (screw up early game and your done for)
- Getting too cocky with Tryndamere
- Tryndamere gets banned in Ranked usally
- Nobody likes Tryndamere except people who play him :(
- Slow attack speed early game
- Long cooldowns on skills except undying rage
Spells that are good:
Spells that are ok:
SPELLS THAT ARE NEVER OK:
Any spell I haven't mentioned.
Greater Mark of Desolation: These things allow you to do more damage to those tanky tanks!
Greater Seal of Regeneration: Allows you to heal faster!
Greater Glpyh of Focus: Lowers Tryndamere's long cooldowns a bit.
Greater Quintessence of Desolation: More damage to tanky tanks!
These masteries provide great offense for Tryndamere while giving him longer buffs and improved recalls and such.
Get your Spinning Slash first, Bloodlust second, and Mocking Shout last.
Why this order? Well, you don't need your heal right away because your oppoenent can't narrow down your health that fast, and mocking shout is better for chasing which you don't do as much Super Early game.
Super Early game:
You walk off the summonning platform. Buy Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion. Tryndamere is slow early game and needs that speed boost. And in case you got ganked and your friend is going B, you could always stay and defend your lane becasue you got healths potions.
First trip back get Vampiric Scepter and start building a Berserkers Greaves. Second Trip back get a Zeal and save up for a B.F. Sword.
Mid Game: When your done your B.F. Sword, complete that into a Infinity Edge. This will help increase Tryndamere's crit chance. Get a Phantom Dancer next to boost the attack speed of Tryndamere.
Assuming you made it this far lets get going to it!
Get a The Bloodthirster and start killing minions to get that extra lifesteal pumped out of it. REMEMBER THAT YOU LOSE YOUR STACKS WHEN YOU DIE. Get a The Black Cleaver as this will increse physical damage and thats what Tryndamere uses to attack. Now you could get 2 Phantom Dancers or get a Madreads Bloodrazor if the team is tanky, If it is AP Casters mostly then get a Banshees Veil. If the Team is composed up of AD, get a Thornmail.
You could also just make up the last items yourself but do this at your own risk! I am not responsable for the items that you choose other then mine.
Passive: Battle Fury
This is Tryndamere's rage meter. Fill this up to get some AWESOME CRITS!
How to use: Fill this up whenever possible as you never know when you might need those extra crits.
This skill heals a percentage of Tryndamere's health based on his passive Battle Fury.
How to use: Don't use this all the time. Only use it when you need to and that means when your being chased because this skill has a LONG cooldown. You could also use this skill IF you activated Undying Rage. I will talk about that later.
W: Mocking Shout
This skill mocks the target infront of you lowering attack speed and movement speed when target faces away from you.
How to use: Use it when chasing as it effects multiple targets at once. It slows them heavily and has a shorter cooldown then the other skills so feel free to use it when ever chasing your prey.
E: Spinning Slash
This skill acts like a fake flash. It can go over walls and be used to catch up or do damage to the target.
How to use: You can use this to go over walls which is REALLY useful and it also deals damage.
Ultimate: Undying Rage
This skill lets you go crazy to your target for 5 seconds without being able to die.
How to use: Special section for that on how to use it coming up.
How to use Undying Rage
How to use:
Finish off a person under 50% health at a turret
Run away from a gank
Get a kill 1v5 (be careful with this though)
Survive Ultimates like Nunu's Ultimate
How NOT to use:
Finish off a person above 50% health at a turret
Get a champion at the opponents summoning ground
Use it for no reason
And note you should hate people who use ignite because the effect of ignite is long enough to last Undying Rage. So watch out for that.
You have to know when to use it so don't be cocky unless you KNOW you are going to get the kill.
Last hitting is everything. I learned from a video that 1 champion kill=roughly 2 minion waves in gold. Thats how important farming is.
So if you don't last hit, you are missing out on a lot of great things. An example would be
Good items quicker
Leveling up faster
Going crazy late game
That is a fair amount of bad things that are going to happen if you don't farm. So I highly recomend doing them.
are gamechangers. And if you don't have a support it doesn't mean you shouldn't get
. In this picture, I will show you where key warding places are.
1. Laning Wards 2. Key Buffs 3. Blue Buff 4. Red Buff
All these wards aren't nesscery, for example, your red buff early game wards not matter as much if you don't have a jungler. Same with blue buff. So you really want to know what key places to ward at certain times of the game. Baron Nashor Spawns 15 minutes into the game. So don't place wards there. And dragon becomes a bit more useless late game so you don't need to ward it. because at this point you are getting your more expensive items such as The Black Cleaver and 2 Phantom Dancers. If you are mid then set up 2 wards in the bush's close to you.
People to Focus
First focus AD or AP Carries such as Graves, or Annie, as they are a dangerous threat if you do not focus them.
Second, focus the Supports and the squishy people such as Shaco, Sona and various other Champions.
Lastly, focus tanks such as Rammus, and Singed.
Focus these tanks first and you will find yourself being focused.
Try to take Solo top as
1. You get more farm for Tryndamere
2. You are an overpowered carry that can dish on 2 people at once
3. You have a heal so if you run out of pots don't worry
Its ok if you can't solo top but if you take bot do not go with an AD or AP Carry. Try to take someone like a support or tank. Supports and Tanks can silence your opponents leaving you to do all the damage you want on them. I tried playing a lane with a Caitlyn and Kog Maw and it did not turn out well.
v.1 First Version of the guide. Open to changes so feel free to suggest items, masteries, and other things.
