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.
Basic Slow, Tons of Critical Damage and nice Attack Speed, those are the central points for this guide.
Pros / Cons
+ Does a lot of damage
+ Escape skill ( Spinning Slash)
+ Very good carry
+ Slow ( Mocking Shout)
+ Heal ( Bloodlust)
+ Very overpowered ultimate ( Endless Rage)
+ Good for backdooring
- Begin game squishyness
- Ultimate can easily be fought against with Ignite
Greater Mark of Critical Damage for the Critical Damage early game.
Greater Seal of Attack Speed for some more Attack Speed, simply because Tryndamere does a lot of damage but he is a very slow attacker early game.
Greater Glyph of Attack Damage for the begin game tons of damage.
Greater Quintessence of Critical Damage for the extra Critical Damage.
This is very handy when farming early game to build up your build.
I chose a 21/9/0 Mastery Tree since Tryndamere needs early game damage and Life Steal but he also needs to cover up his begin game squishiness. Thanks to the Mastery Tree you can easily farm and harass the enemy without a lot effort. The armor penetration comes in very handy when the enemy decides to harass you with melee; fight back and they will have to return quickly.
For the items I start with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potions. This comes in handy to stay on your lane for a long time and if you have enough money you can directly buy Wriggle's Lantern. If you need to return earlier, buy a Vampiric Sceptor as it will help you stay on lane longer. Once you have enough money buy a Zeal for the attack speed and Critical Chance. Now it's time to strike, harrass often and get some kills. As quick as possible buy Phage for the extra Attack Damage, Health and the awesome slow, they wont get away now! You'll soon see that your damage should raise up soon. Once in need, go get B. F. Sword for the Attack Damage. Now it's time to finish your items and move up your Attack Speed and Critical Chance: Phantom Dancer. Once you have the money, buy Frozen Mallet and later on buy an Infinity Edge or a The Bloodthirster I prefer to first buy my Infinity Edge and in the end replace my Wriggle's Lantern with a The Bloodthirster. To finish off I like to buy an extra The Bloodthirster the extra Life Steal and Attack Damage.
I like to start off with Spinning Slash, since it is very helpfull to harass, escape and scout. Becuase Tryndamere still is squishy begin game (because he doesn't have his ultimate or his heal) I unlock Bloodlust second, this will help you to escape and will help you to stay on your lane longer. Directly after this you'll need to unlock Mocking Shout to support your team, get kills and escape easier. I max Bloodlust first because it really help you out a lot. I max Spinning Slash second because of the extra damage and I finish up with Mocking Shout.
Exhaust This is very helpfull during ganks and it can secure a lot of kills.
Ghost to escape, since I find Flash unnecessary since your Spinning Slash already is a kind of Flash.
You can also replace this with Flash, Heal or Ignite.
