udyr support wtf!?
yes you did read right support udyr a champion i have been experimenting with of late and found him enterprisingly good.
udyr is a scary support uydr is able to stun then shred down your health leaving and easy kill for the adc and your adc should always be getting the kills as udyr is fully capable of droping them himself its not your role.
i take armor pen reds on udry because his main combo involves his E-bear stance and Q tiger stance
stun with E the damage output from Q will drop them low lining up easy kills for your adc
the rest are basic supporting runes
flat armor yellows MR per level blue or flat MR witch ever your prefer and gold per 10 quints.
mastired follow the basic support Masteries 0-9-21 well rounded to having as much utility as possible whilst remaining tanky, which is very important early game.
A typical safe start, allowing for early Philosopher's Stone starts with Faerie Charm, Rejuvenation Bead and two Sight Wards.
Your Faerie Charm / Rejuvenation Bead is always built into a Philosopher's Stone to provide you with gold per 10.
Once you have your Philosopher's Stone rush your Ruby Sightstone for tons of health and your wards.
Then start building your Aegis of the Legion. I often build the Emblem of Valor first to get the health regen aura. Make sure your jungler and top laner know you're building Aegis of the Legion, so they don't accidentally build it also.
Ruby Sightstone Although it only gives you a fair amount of health, keep it until the very end to ensure you have enough wards. Never stop warding!
Mikael's Crucible gives you mana, magic resist and the fantastic mana regen provided by the Chalice of Harmony - but it has a game changing active which can cleanse AND heal an allied champion. Use it on your AD carry just as they get pinned down by Skarner's Impale or generally when they're being focused. This item wins teamfights when used properly.
Locket of the Iron Solari is a very strong item in Season 3. It does provide decent amounts of health and armour, and most importantly cooldown reduction. On top of this its active can turn the tide of teamfights by providing allies with a damage absorbing shield.
Shurelya's Reverie is one of the most important support items in the game. It provides you with great amounts of health and health/mana regen, but most importantly its active ability allows for speedy engagements and disengagements. You build it relatively late to maximise upon the gold earned by your Philosopher's Stone.
Runic Bulwark is the upgraded Aegis of the Legion. It provides you with health, armour and magic resist, and provides nearby allies with an additional 10 armour, 30 magic resist and 10 health regen.
Enchantment: Captain is your upgrade to either your Boots of Mobility, Mercury's Treads, Ninja Tabi or Ionian Boots of Lucidity. It can save lives by increasing the speed in which allies can run towards you. It can also help you split push by speeding up nearby minions.
Naturally if you are at endgame with your full build, make sure you have your Oracle's Elixir (Don't leave it until now obviously, always buy one much earlier) and drink an Elixir of Fortitude and an Elixir of Brilliance for added health and burst damage.
i recommend graves,vayne,corki,tristana or draven all can capitalize on udyrs support style
graves and vayne can quickdraw and tumble respectivly towards adc after you stun meaning you can ingauge without giving signs of an ingauge with an udyr stun from the brush corki can valkyrie in tristanas rocket jump and dravens on form of cc paired with his high damage output early plus his movment and attackspeed boost will guarentee kills if executed right
they way you play udyr as a support is up to you there are many ways to play but two things allways remain ward ward ward!! constantly and let the adc have the kills yes a fed udyr is very strong but that is not your role although you will be able to do alot more in a team fight than a support as say soraka ur damage will be resonable and you will be tanky giving them not much choice to iether focus you or be torn apart
i hope y ou enjoy this guide guys im not very experianced with making guides so any tips feel free to let me know thanks guys and rock that support!!
