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.
Pros / Cons
- No more this or that [ Phoenix Stance or Tiger Stance both are in your arsenal]
- Armor and Magic Resist "BURN" ;see Malady and The Black Cleaver = 24 less Magic Resist and 45 less Armor.
- Extra Magic Damage with "EACH" attack ;see Malady and Wit's End
- High damage output early and late game
- Decent Armor, Magic resist and high Dodge rate.
- Extremely fast attack speed
- YOU CAN DANCE! and it gives you more Dodge rate! yahoooo...
- A little squishy at 1 vs 3/4/5 [usually gets a double kill at 1 vs 2]
- No regen items [this is where Turtle Stance comes in handy]
- Average HP and Mana
- No crits
End Game and Luxury Items
End Game Items should be Ninja Tabi Wit's End Rod of Ages Malady The Black Cleaver [Luxury Slot]
Ninja Tabi - Dodge and Armor
Wit's End - Attack Speed and Magic Resist + Extra Magic Damage
Rod of Ages - Growing Health, Mana and Ability Power + level up heal passive
Malady -Attack Speed, Ability Power + Extra magic damage and Magic Resist "BURN" passive
The Black Cleaver - Attack Damage and Speed + Armor "BURN" passive
Now for the Luxury slot choose any of these situational items that might be useful, It's actually "COMMON SENSE". Choose what you think you're lacking.
Aegis of the Legion Guardian Angel, Trinity Force, Hextech Gunblade, Frozen Mallet, Guinsoo's Rageblade, Warmog's Armor, Thornmail, Madred's Bloodrazor or any other item that suits your current gameplay.
Why Hybrid AP/AD Items?
Why Ability Power? - Udyr deals extra Magic Damage with Phoenix Stance and it also affects Turtle Stance shield absorption. With your INSANE attack speed. The extra Magic Damage from Phoenix Stance will proc like CRAZY.
Why Attack Damage? - Common sense, Udyr is an extremely fast AUTO-ATTACKER. Malady Wit's End and The Black Cleaver provides Udyr 120 Attack Speed, 55 Attack Damage + Magic Resist/Armor "BURN" + extra Magic Damage on each attack.
I'm not really sure how these items Malady The Black Cleaver procs with Tiger Stance coz as I've heard Sword of the Divine extra Magic Damage procs only once with Tiger Stance [probably because of balance]. But surely, these items work on "EACH" attack if you pop Phoenix Stance or any other stance.
Rod of Ages will also provide Udyr what he's lacking "Health and Mana" and it's growing every minute.
Tiger Stance - pretty good at endgame especially at pressuring/destroying towers
Turtle Stance - a life saver if used wisely, also useful while farming and regenerating both HP and MP
Bear Stance - chasing, ganking, escaping, farming, CC'ing
Phoenix Stance - very useful combined with every stance, it also makes you a killing machine.
Creeping / Jungling
Start jungling wolves at level 1 then ghost if you have at least level 3 of Phoenix Stance
then lane a little bit for a gank or tower def. At level 3 Phoenix Stance farming will be a breeze.
You can kill the Golem at level 4 if you already have Ninja Tabi
Turtle Stance and Phoenix Stance is great against the Golem, dont forget Smite.
Why Golem Buff? - it's because it provides you fast mana regeneration that you need while farming and creeping, if you have this Aura you won't have any problem at Stance Dancing. It's also easier to kill the Lizard with this buff on, - just dance.
Smite - farm, use this whenever you can, or when farming Golem or Lizard
Exhaust - gank, anti-escape, purge
Other spells that might tickle your fancy :
Flash - escape, chase, surprise, gank
Teleport - DEF, creeping and most of all "IF YOU HATE WALKING"
