Not Updated For Current Season
Hello summoner!! I'm Wrangi and this is my first guide. I've enjoyed playing with udyr in 3v3 a lot and now making a guide to tell how I play udyr in 3v3. Udyr was also the first character I bought.
Pros / Cons
He's a beast
Nice cc with bear stance
Nice damage as tank
Hard to counter if played right
No ranged attacks
Can be hard to master
Doesen't do any damage if cc:ed
can be kited
Marks that works
Greater Mark of Attack Speed Greater Mark of Desolation Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Seals that works
Greater Seal of Armor Greater Seal of Attack Speed Greater Seal of Vitality but I recomend the armmor Seals
Glyphs that works
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Quintessences that works
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed Greater Quintessence of Health Greater Quintessence of Desolation Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
I usally start with Long Sword and a Health Potion. That does so I can get my Wriggle's Lantern much faster. If you're not sure you can handle lane you can take
Cloth Armor 5 Health Potion against AD lane
Boots of Speed 3 Health Potion against AP lane
If you want to go for first blood you can get Doran's Blade or Doran's Shield but i recomend going for the fast Wriggle's Lantern
I Always get Wriggle's Lantern and Trinity Force These items makes udyr very strong and he does really nice damage with just these items. But if it's a very long game you might want to change Wriggle's Lantern for Zeke's Harbinger or The Bloodthirsterwhen you have full build.
In early game you want Wriggle's Lantern pretty fast so you can take dragon and jungle easy
Ninja Tabi against AD team
Mercury's Treads against AP/cc team
Now I start to buy my tank items
Against AD Thornmail Randuin's Omen Sunfire Cape
I prefer Thornmail for It's pasive
Against AP Spirit Visage Banshee's Veil Force of Nature Wit's End
I prefer Wit's End for the extra damage
Against hybrid Guardian Angel Aegis of the Legion
Against cc Quicksilver Sash
I often take one item against AD and one item against AP.
Now you're so tanky you almost can't die. It's time to do some damage!
I always go for a Trinity Force since it's such a good item for Udyr. You should get a trinity force in every game unless you win before you can get one.
If you face a tanky team you should get Madred's Bloodrazor
Wit's End gives MR as well
The Black Cleaverif you want to burst thought their armor
Youmuu's Ghostblade gives a short speed buff so you can initiate easier.
The Bloodthirster gives a lot of AD to your tiger stance and life steal to keep you alive. If you die a lot you shouldn't get one because it can be hard to farm up.
Frozen Mallet Gives nice with hp, a little more damage and a very nice slow.
Atma's Impaler gives armmor and a nice damage buff if you have a lot of HP. If you get Atma's Impaler get some HP items like Warmog's Armor or Frozen Mallet or both.
Build 1 against balanced team
Build 2 against AD team
Build 3 against AP team
All of udyrs stance cost 55/50/45/40/35 mana and have 6 seconds cooldown. Udyr is one of the few champions that doesn't have an ultimate, instead he has 4 strong stances.
This spell increase attack speed for a short duruation and does extra magic damage for 2 seconds on first target you attack
Extra damage 30/80/130/180/220 + 150% AD
Persistent Effect: increase attack speed with 20/25/30/35/40 %
This is udyrs main damage source. It does magic damage and makes it's hard to counter udyr because he does both magic and physical damage. This spells leaves a 2 second dot on the player/minion you attack. I usually charge with bear stance and stun then take tiger stance and leave the dot and now they have lost 1/3 of their hp in early game. Tiger stance have one of the best AD ratios in game and thats one reason to why I love it.
This spell gives udyr a temporary shield
Shield 60/100/140/180/220+ 50% AP
Persistent Effect: gives udyr 10/12/14/16/18 damage as hp and 5/6/7/8/9% as mana but udyr can't crit when having turtle stance on
This stance makes udyr sooooo tanky. 200 shield every 6 seconds and the shield become harder to get down the more MR/Armor you have.If you know you gonna be hit by a spell you can use turtle stance to reduce the damage you're gonna take. This stance have saved my life many times. Turtle stance is very good to use if you want to get your mana and health upp.
This spell gives you a short speed buff and you will stun your target.
Movement speed buff 15/18/21/24/27 for 2/2,5/3/,3,5/4 seconds
Persistent Effect: You stun your target. You can only stun the same target once every 6 seconds
Bear stance is a great spell to use if you are chasing an enemy or if you want to run away from an enemy. You can always stun the enemy to get some extra space when you are running away.
Udyr does AoE damage for 5 seconds
15/25/34/35/45/55 AoE damage every second and he gets 16/24/32/40/48 AP for the duration
Persistent Effect: Every third attack does 40/80/120/160/200 extra magic damage to targets in front of him
I don't use phoenix stance so much. I only use this stance when attacking towers to get some extra damage and kepping[monkey's aggilty] up. I think phoenix stance is more of a farming/pushing stance.
This is udyr pasive and it gives you 10% more attack speed every time you use a stance. This effect stack up to 3 times so you can get 30 % attack speed from it.This pasive is great for jungling. The buff last 5 seconds so you need to change stances to keep the buff up.
I prefere Flash and Exhaust
Flash I use flash so I can escape or initiate fights. It's still a good summmoner spell after nerf. Can be used in in many good ways with udyr like flash to stun and kill an enemy.
Exhaust Exhaust will stop enemies damage and make them easier to kill. Also userfull when chasing enemies
Other summoner spells:
Ignite I only use ignite if nobody on my team has it. A great spell agaist champion like Tryndamere and Fiddlesticks
Ghost I use it like flash to initiate or escape and it stacks with bear stance. But you can't jump through walls with ghost.
Cleanse If you know you are going to face a cc team but i like to get Quicksilver Sash instead.
Udyr can be a good laner but if you're not used with Udyr go bot lane and not solo top. Udyr need some farm from the lane to become strong and tanky. If you have a hard time laning max turtle stance to make the laning easier. Durring the laning phase your goal is to get farmed and might get some kills if you'r good. He has no ranged attacks so he can be outzooned. Then try to get last hit so you'll be able to kill them later when your tanky. You can hide in bush and then strike them with tiger stance and you've might be able to zone them out.
Turtle stance makes udyr a good laner. You don't take any damage and regain health and mana. Try use turtle stance while lasthiting for the health and mana you regain and if they come close you can harass your enemy pretty good with tiger stance. On low lvl it can do about a 1/3 of your enemys hp if their not so tanky.
If you get your Wriggle's Lantern early you can push your lane and then take the buffs. It's a great way to get some extra gold and xp. With wriggle's you can take solo dragon, But if yyou try it make sure you won't be ganked.
