THE TRYNDAQUEER GUIDE!
I don't know who reads these notes, but firstly, I do not mean to offend any homosexuals with the name. I always thought of the word "queer" as strange and not as an insult to homosexuals.
Secondly, the leer reference is mainly about Tryndamere's W. Just make sure you cluck correctly.
The reason I max E first is for damage and cooldown, and it makes farming easier as well as mobility, jukes, etc. Use it to escape through walls in the jungle. If you're being chased, jungle walls will help you escape easily, and save your ult for the last moments of death.
Reactions for your ult takes a little bit of practice but will save you. I always run in, E through the team, W midflight since they usually won't turn around in time and get clucked, start whacking things, take a lot of damage, ult, whack more things, and if i'm dying, e out and q and just run the f**k out of there.
Tryndaqueer with max crit is good, but the reason I have two lifesteal items is because THORNMAIL WILL WRECK YOU! Lucky for you, you'll be fine with over 30% lifesteal.
If anyone that counters you with blocking basic attack like Jax twirlyswirly thing, just e w and run in circles or whack something else until its gone. Jax and Lee Sin are examples of counters for Tryndamere that can easily be beaten with a little practice and skilling. Lee Sin countering involves using your E to dodge his Q or him in general for HIS E, and to counter Jax just harass as much as possible and utilize your E (but make sure you dont E into danger.)
Spam your abilities as much as possible since there is no mana, but save up your E if you're paranoid because it is your escape. W is good if you know theres no way to get out alive and slow them down, but just to reduce damage intake. Spam your Q if there is nothing to whack around (turrets and inhibs dont count) just for bonus heals and not a wasting of a fury bar - it will go up fast.
As you know E cooldown is extremely reduced with crit hits so with the final build max crit is 90%, but testing with some combos you can get it to exactly 100% (you get 35% from full fury bar). I use Yonmuu's due to its mvmt spd active and att spd bonus, as well as the CD reduction and armor pen. Black Cleaver works fine as an alt, though.
I get that a lot of others build Ravenous Hydra on Tryndamere, but I personally dislike that. Besides, with Statikk, your lightning also deals crit, and if you dont like statikk use Phantom but sacrifice your AOE damage. It won't really matter because with enough damages at the end you'll just E an entire wave and farm up. Farm mastering is all it takes with Tryndamere.
Jungling as Tryndamere I always have trouble ganking without ult and diving in because im paranoid, so I almost never gank pre-6. Just stack up on pots, get madred's, avarice, and your bilge, and that should leave you with happy jungling. Replace ignite with smite, or teleport, if you want ignite, but Tryndamere does NOT need flash, barrier, etc. Ghost is a fine alternative.
Well, that wraps that up. Enough talking from me. Enjoy!
