Greater Quint of Malice

Greater Mark of Malice

Greater Seal of Resilience

Greater Glyph of Warding

The Marks and Quints are for early game crits and also help to reach 100% crit chance much faster. Seals and Glyphs are for magic resist and armor to avoid being melted quickly.

So lets talk about the items, which make Tryndamere the unstoppable force that he is. Tryn is a DPS character (damage per second). This means you need to build Attack Damage, Attack Speed, and for Tryn, CRIT CHANCE.

When you first spawn, your going to wanna pick up and 2 .After you lane for awhile your gunna wanna come back and pick up your which will give u much needed crit chance and some extra gold. After that pick up your giving you AS and Movement Speed. After those is were it starts to get good. I like to buy , once you get this you will have damage, life steal, armor, and a built in ward to watch out for ganks, all of this gives you an insane amount of sustain and you wont have to leave lane often.Next is all around boss item makes u start to be VERY deadly. Once you get your its all over folks, there gunna whish they banned you. After this point if the game isnt over, i like to pick up for more damage and lifesteal, after that sell the avarice blade, and then believe it or not,get a which will allow you to stay in fights longer since Tryn is very squishy. Game still not over?! Sell your Wriggle's Lantern and buy a Maw of Malmortius which will further prolong the need to use Undying Rage and give u very usefull magic resist, and a huge amount of extra damage at 1 health.

Passive- This makes Tryndamere the "Crit King" and what makes him so deadly

Q- Gives him bonus attack damage and excellent sustain for laning.

W- allows him to successfully 1v1 AD champs and also to chase them down after the fight.

E- makes Tryndamere very fun to play and is perfect for juking out enemy teams when being chased. they wont be able to follow you when you spin through walls!

R(ultimate)- enemy kill you before you can get the last hit on them? no worries pop this ult and it won't matter, you'll be running around with no health while taking everyone else's away!

Summoner Spells

I prefer because it helps to ensure 1v1 victories, and helps in a chase or even escape. is if u just cant catch up to someone, or just some extra needed damage. If your getting killed alot by your lane or jungler, you might wanted to put an escape on such as so you don't feed them a kill.

Tryndamere is one of the easiest people to farm with. About half way through the build u will be one hitting minions. CS is essential for Tryndamere, and before a fight, make sure you hit some minions to build up your fury for maximum damage for the fight. As Tryn you should have the most creeps in the game. Also, you should constantly be helping with dragon and eventually baron. Solo baron? no problem. YOUR TRYNDAMERE! your life steal + crit will ensure baron.

"The next true power will come from the far north, and it will involve Tryndamere - one way or another."

- Graccus Mightstone, League Senior Political Scholar.

There are those who choose not to live in one of the great city-states of Valoran. Instead, they live in remote locales, often as part of a nomad or barbarian tribe. While perils abound in these untamed lands, there is also great freedom in being removed from the politics of Valoran. Tryndamere was born a member of one of these barbarian tribes in northern Valoran. Even as a young boy, it was obvious that he would grow in martial prowess to become one of his clan's greatest warriors. However, as his clan moved south between the Howling Marsh and the Ironspike Mountains, they came across strangers in black garb, brandishing symbols of a beast's skull. Despite Tryndamere's pleas, his elder went out to speak with the strangers; they cut him down mercilessly. From there, they began to slaughter every man, woman, and child in the clan. Tryndamere, the sole survivor, hid under the bodies of his dead parents. Upon their bloodied corpses, he swore eternal vengeance on those who took his people from him - the assassins of Noxus.

To train himself, Tryndamere voluntarily served under all the great chieftains of the barbarian tribes, learning the ways of the barbarian warrior. Not only did this make him the man he needed to become in order to exact his revenge, it has also garnered him friends and allies among the most powerful barbarian leaders of Valoran. This recently allowed him to unite the barbarians into a single, powerful force - all under his command. Now he has joined the League of Legends to earn enough influence to find a permanent home for his people... and to slake his rage on the champions of his hated foes.

Skill Sequence

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

First, Max your Q for the damage and sustain. Next, you max your W for the damage reduction and slow. And max your E last because it does not do that much damage and is basically only for moving around.

Team Work

Tryndamere is not really an initiator. Wait until your tank goes in, and quickly spin in and cast to lower everyone's damage and follow up with some auto attacks. Once they start to run, cast again to slow them and if needed. Just make sure your ALWAYS hitting someone, you need the life steal from the hits to stay alive and kill the enemy team as soon as possible.

Ranked Play

Tryndamere is very hard to play in ranked. He is constantly banned for one thing, and as said before, he can easily be countered by skilled players and be shut down for the whole game and you will be made fun of :'(. So unless your freakin good STAY AWAY from ranked.
