Intoduction

Hey everyone!

This is my first build ever, and it's about my favorite AD champ: Tryndamere.

Pros:
- Crits like a maniac
- Can heal himself
- Has an ult that enables him to be invulnerable
- Perfect chaser thanks to his slow and spin
Cons:
- Squishy before lvl 6
- Gets pushed away easily by ranged AD champs
- Sensitive to DoT's like ignite or poison
- Requires skill to get away after popping your ult

My build focuses on (ofcourse) critical strike chance, armor, magic resist and attack speed and damage.

Runes

I take the standard AD armor penetration marks,
Armor seals,
Magic resistance glyphs,
Critical strike chance quintessences.

Armor pen is for the damage ofcourse, armor and MR are there so you aren't supersquishy before lvl 6, it allows you to lane longer, especially with the Doran's Shield combo, and the quits make sure you crit enough.

Masteries

Pretty self-explanatory, 21-9-0 so you do damage and you have some armor and MR, which is quite nice.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

My favorites are exhaust and flash, but other nice spells for Trynda are:
ignite, for if you can't just reach your target who has low HP,
cleanse, it's really hard to get away after casting your ult, especially if the enemy team has a lot of CC's, so cleanse is a nice solution for this problem,
clarity, should you get low on mana, clarity is... wait... who put this here?

Items

I start with Doran's Shield, it enables you to keep in your lane a lot longer and synergises nicely with your masteries and runes.
After that you need some speed, and the only boots (maybe apart from Mercury Threads) for Trynda are the Berserker Greaves for the added attack speed.
After that it's time for some damage! The Phage gives a nice damage boost along with some health to make you a bit more beefy.
Attack speed on the way with the Zeal! It's going to be upgraded to the Phantom Dancer later on.
After the Zeal, you have to get THE item for Tryndamere: Infinity Edge. It gives a ton of damage and makes sure your crits (which you do quite much at this point) do 250% damage instead of 200%.
Next it's time to upgrade the Phage to Frozen Mallet, and the Zeal to the Phantom Dancer.
Finally, for MR and armor along with attack speed and attack damage you get the Wit's End and Atma's Impaler.
