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.
I see people say that Tiger Udyr is better than Phoenix Udyr. I would beg to differ. Phoenix has its pros and cons as does Tiger. People see this into and think "oh boy i hope i get to see something on tiger udyr" well don't get your hopes up on that. This udyr guide is very simple just because i enjoy making things simple as simple as can be, not much reading, moreso doing than reading as i said. If you are hesitant in trying this go do it in a custom game. If you do the jungle pattern correct with the same runes and masteries this should take you to about the time of 3:30 into the game (that means that the time started at 0:00)
Blue golem spawns first at 1:55 so know that, it can help.
Creeping / Jungling
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS GUIDE
When starting in the Jungle start at Blue buff.
Before you leave the base start your phoenix up so you don't lose any attacks on your passive.
At blue pop a potion and grab turtle at level 2
Head to wolves, get your passive from phoenix and turn to turtle. Do not use a potion.
Head to Wraiths after. Use a potion and phoenix. And put a point into Phoenix
Head to Red buff. Pop a potion and use phoenix and turtle at the appropriate times.
After Red go to double golems,Put a point into bear head back to base and get a long sword, a potion, and a ward.
Either place the ward at dragon or by the bush at the solo lane.
Gank after placing the ward.
After that do what your own will is.

this is a short vid on what to do when you start out jungling.. simple, short, etc. haha
In ranked i have tried this build a few times. It is most likely the most viable build that all udyr's could have in their lifetime. The items are my own but you can change those up. We will get to that later though, but this jungle pattern is amazing if you want to do a jungler and do well. By far this is probably the BEST jungle pattern i have seen. There is a way to do Tiger udyr as well the same speed, but i enjoy phoenix udyr better.
Pros / Cons
Lots of AOE from pheonix
Able to go tanky because of the ad and ap that phoenix gives you.
Multi Target and single target
Single target is somewhat weak compared to tiger.
not as good ratios as tiger
Level 1: Phoenix
Max out phoenix at level 9, then turtle, then bear.
Wriggle's: For damage, armor, lifesteal, and that ward.
Also the passive of Madred's Razors and Wriggle's Lantern go off of the percentage for your turtle's persistent affect.
Merc Treads: There are really no other boots you really need on Udyr, unless you want 3 boots, but they are not needed.
Spirit Visage: This makes your Turtle heal more
Void Staff: Not really needed, but it is cool to have because your phoenix does magic damage, that allows you to do more damage. You can change this item for Frozen Mallet or Rylais. Rylais adds a slow to your phoenix. Frozen Mallet just makes you slow, i recommend Frozen Mallet moreso
FoN: FoN allows you to be able to iniate and take no consequences because you don't have to worry about health, especially with Spirit Visage and Turtle
Sunfire Cape: It does the SAME thing as Phoenix Stance does so you get the double trouble, which i like to call it.
The last 3 items can be switched at all times, even changed items, but the first three i STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU KEEP IT, for it is the best items on udyr.
All in all Udyr is a great champion, hes got his Tiger Stance that can do damage and the Phoenix stance that can do damage as well. Jungle udyr is 10x better than lane udyr in my opinion. This jungle guide will lead you to victory. I would show you my stats with Udyr if i knew how.
