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.
After leveling up with Tryndamere from 5th to 20th level ( i'm not kidding, 95% of games that i played are with Trynda ) I finaly have enough expirience to write a good guide. This guide mainly includes Apotheosis's guide, but with some changes, mainly because not every player is lvl 30 ( i'm on lvl 20, so i don't have all masteries, rune slots, even all tier 3 runes that i can get) so this guide is for those who are half way to perfect rune and masteries build. This build is very balanced, and you will se some interesting item combining.
Just take Malice runes. Marks, seals and quins should be malices, and glyphs you can choose whatever you want ( ArP, CrC, CD..)
Focus on Offence till you are lvl 21, after that take 9 in utility.
You MUST have critical chance, as my build gives you well, almost a 100% critical chance, so when you have this start, you can focus on AD items instead on Phantom Dancer.
This is Trynda build focused on Critical chance, Attack damage, and Attack speed. I'll explain why in the end of this section.
First item is Brawler Gloves and 2 Health Potions. Then, depending on situation, take basic boots or Zeal first, then Berseker Boots, and Vampiric Scepter. ( and when you go to base for the first time, buy 1 or 2 HP potions) This is a good base for Tryndamere, but it doesn't make him too strong, yes he can kill easly, but don't get cocky, because your health and armor don't give you enough space for errors.
Mid game item, the serious one, is Infinity Edge. Lots of people take this item later, but i take it right away, because you get massive damage boost ( +80 ), and that 250% from crit means a lot to Trynda. This is a killer for creeps and line fights. However, it's important that you don't push team line ( 5vs5 lines, basicly when everybody is in the same lane) because that is a bit of a problem for Trynda, because he is uselles againt enemies, exept in 5vs5 frontal fight. Next item is Phantom Dancer. The reason for that is, not only crit chance, but attack speed. I have noticed that attack speed is crutial for fast stacking Bloodlust, and later Bloodthirsters lifesteal. Next up is Bloodthirster. Now you will deal some massive damage to enemies, but still don't focus tanks, but everybody else, easy pray. If you get to another BT and Phantom, you will be unstopable.
Tips and Tricks
As you see, there is no Armor Pen. and Magic resist item. Why ? Basicly, you don't have to focus that 1 tank that enemy has, and spellcasters are a different story... When you stack this much damage, you will kill every caster in less than five hits, 2,5 seconds. I eat Twisted Fate and Ashe for breakfast, and my best tactic is - fear ! 80% 1on1 and even 2 on 1(you), in late game, enemy will run back the second he sees you. I'm not kidding ! Those late game line farmers always run away from me, but E+W combo stops them in place, making them easy target. You can compensate for your lack of survivial atributes, by not beeing attacked! If enemy is fleeing, then he can't deal damage to you! Simple !
This guide is meant for all those without all tier 3 runes and 30 masteries and it's so deadly that i always have at least 10-15 kills, and max 5 deaths. My best score with Trynda, and i swear on my eyes, in 5vs5 matchmade game, was 54/10/10 ! I ate 5 enemies at the time!
Try it, and if it works for you, give me a +1 :)
