Hey Guys!
Welcome to my Udyr Tank Guide!

Nobody likes him, because everyone fails with him! Most people leave when they see that there is a udyr in his team! I want these people make to love Udyr!

PS: Sry for my bad english! I hope you will understand me!

Runes

Marks Greater Mark of Attack Speed: I use attack speed marks, because it helps me to jungle faster, but you can also take attack
penetration marks.

Seals Greater Seal of Evasion: The dodge seals are a must for a udyr, because it supports the monkeys agality and it helps against those annoying meeles like yi,tryn,jax etc.

Glyphs Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist: The magic resistance per level helps you a lot against casters.
And cause you are building Sunfire Cape first you will lack a bit of magic resistance.

Qintessences Greater Quintessence of Health: Nearly 100 Health more from the beginning of the match! It helps you to jungle and survive longer!


Guide Top

Items

: Against casters, heavy cc-teams etc.. As Udyr you need it, cc is one of your worst enemies.

: This shoes are although possible, but I only use them when I play only against phsycal damage. It boosts your passive as well.

: This item is all you need early game! It gives you life and armor! The passive is just awesome together with Phoenix Stance! Great for farming and Dps in Teamfights.

: We have life and armor, so we need a bit magic resitance. Another good one against cc.

: Much armor + life + cool down reduction and an good activation. Awesome.

: Sometimes I buy it right after sunfire cape, when I know that I dont need life for the moment. You become faster and get more magic resistance.

: I think that I dont need to tell you why!
____________________________________________________________________________________
There are many other good items and you shouldnt play excatly after this guide!

: You can buy it if you think u are too slowly!

: Against those feeded physical champions.

: Its a nice item! Reduces CD's and the enemys attack speed + more Armor (most in the game).

: Life + attack damage, but the attack damage is too low. Good for chasing, but you have Randuins Omen.

: It gives you a lot of damage and attack speed! You will become very dangerous for the enemys team!

: Another good magic resistance item, with an good activation! Good for carries, but since you should be focused this item is a waste compared to ohter real tank items.

: A nice item! Magic resistance, armor and a bit for all your teammates too.

Jungle


Why do i jungle that way?
-It's saver to jungle this way, because the enemies will try to gank you at the mana buff

Is that way need more time?
-Yes of course. You must run longer, but at the end of the jungle you will be on the same level as your teammates are on the side-double-lane!

Do you only jungle in your jungle?
-No, I don't! You must go in the jungle of the enemies to place Sight Wards. If they don't have a jungler in their team I will go there and steal mana and lizzard buff, when mine is away!

1: Double Golem Camp:Use Smite for the first golem and use only 3 TIMES Turtle Stance for the camp. After that camp you will reach level 2 and skill Phoenix Stance!

2: Wraiths: Go in the middle of the camp,use Phoenix Stance and attack the blue wraith! After you hit him 3 times you use Turtle Stance. Notice that you use Turtle Stance only 2 times!

3: Wolfes: Use 1 Time Turtle Stance and attack the big wolf! You will reach level 3 and skill Turtle Stance]]!

4: Mana Golem: Attack the big Golem and use your first Health Potion. Use Turtle Stance all the time and Smite to kill him, when he is low life! Don't use Smite at the beginning of the fight, because someone could steal it then!

5: Lizzard: Change your stances as often as possible to get your Monkey's Agility up and kill Lizzard! After this camp you are level 4 and skill Bear Stance! Its time to gang now!Use your second Health Potion and gank the lane that needs the most help and try to get a kill!

6:Dragon: Don't do the dragon solo. Yes, Udyr can take the dragon down solo, but that will take too much time and so the chance that you are getting ganked is very high. So do the dragon with your teammates together! That goes faster!

7: As jungler it is you'r job to ward the map. When you have some extra gold you must buy Sight Wards and place them at the dragon and mana buff and so on!!

Teamfights and 1on1

Teamfights:


You are the tank. So YOU will engage team fights. Bear Stance, and run into their as***.
And stun them. More stuns , less dmg for your team, more dmg against the enemies.
You can break up Katarinas, Nunus, Malzahars and many more ultis! Thats awesome for your team. Then you activate Phoenix Stance to deal some dmg or use Turtle Stance, if you get too much dmg. Then you turn to Bear Stance again and stun.
SAVE your teammates! If they are low on health and try to run away, chase the enemy and stun him = your mate has another second to run away. If all the enemies focus you, you do well.
If you decide to run use Bear Stance + Turtle Stance and you will hopefully get away.

1on1:


In 1on1 situation you use Bear Stance to go in and then switch to Phoenix Stance and then after 6 sec. to Bear Stance again and wait so long until you have stuned him again (each 6 sec. possible). Then you switch to Phoenix Stance or Turtle Stance. You will switch to Turtle Stance, if you got too much damage and to Phoenix Stance if not!

Farming

With Sunfire Cape and Phoenix Stance level 5 its very easy to farm!
Just spam your Phoenix Stance!

Udyr DPS Guide


Guide Top

Introduction

As you can see ends the Tank Guide and the DPS Guide begins, so scroll up, if you want to play Tank!
If you want to play Udyr on DPS, you must play him on Tiger Stance. That's important! The Tiger Stance is just awesome for DPS. You will destroy the enemies, because after the activation of Tiger Stance you will hit the enemy 2 seconds long with magical damage and then with physical damage. That means that you are doing magical and physical damage with one Stance and you although get attack speed! I love the Tiger Stance! It's hard to find the right deff-items for tanks against you if you constantly use Tiger Stance


Guide Top

Runes

Marks Greater Mark of Desolation: Here I go for armor penetration, because I want to deal more damage.
Seals Greater Seal of Evasion: I go again for dodge , because it supports the Mokey's Agality.
Glyphs Greater Glyph of Attack Speed: I don't really know, what I should take, so I take attack speed.
Quintessence Greater Quintessence of Desolation: I go again for armor penetration, to get more of it.


Guide Top

Items

: This will be your only magic resistance item and I buy it to get not so long stunned!

: This is a great item for Udyr, because it gives you very much damage and attack speed. Usually you don't need attack speed items, because of Tiger Stance.

: This will be your only defens item and the only reason why i buy ths itme is that I you must come in the range of the enemies to do a lot of damage and you won't come in he near if you have too lees life! And the passive is really good too!

: This item makes you very, very strong and gives you armor penetration and cooldown reduction! Notice: Don't forget to activate it!

: Don't need to say so much of this. You will get life steal and a lot of damage!

:This is your last item and makes you very, very strong. Each time when you activate a skill you get the passice of Sheen and you will do + 150% to your next hit! Notice: You will activate a skill like every 4 seconds! I think, when they made this item, they made it for Udyr!

____________________________________________________________________________________

Other good items for DPS-Udyr:

: If you think that you don't need Mercury's Treads, you can take them!

: I don't take this item, because you will have slow with trinity in late game!
: This item is great, if they have too much casters. I love this item: damage + magic resistance + shield that takes damage = Survival + attack damage item!

: Since the newest patch this item is great on Udyr, because Udyr has attack speed and damage and with armor penetration you do like insane damage!

: Good lifesteal item. Once I used it, but The Bloodthirster is a way better in my opinion, but it has a great passive for your teammates.It also Reduces the enemies armor by 20!

: I buy this item only, if I play against Jax, it makes playing against him MUCH easier.

: When you get feeded from the beginning of the game, buy it!! If they see that you have a Sword of the Occult with like 5-10 stacks, they will hopefully think: << WTF?! Udyr has 10 Occultstacks?!?! OMG! IF a UDYR got them, how can we win this SH*T? >> and surrender.

:It's great for Udyr, I know, but I liked it more, when it gave us more attack damage and not attack speed!

: Another good item against casters and now it's not only good against caster, it's good against everyone since it deals extra damage to champions without mana, too!

Summoner Spells

When I play DPS-Udyr, I use

Why Exhaust?

Exhaust helps you more in 1on1 Situations!

Jungle


1: Double Golem Camp:Use Smite for the first golem and use only 3 TIMES Turtle Stance for the camp. After that camp you will reach level 2 and skill Tiger Stance!

2: Wraiths: Go in the middle of the camp,use Tiger Stance and attack the blue wraith! After 2 seconds the activation of Tiger Stance is away use Turtle Stance. Notice that you use Turtle Stance only 2 times!

3: Wolfes: Use 1 Time Turtle Stance and attack the big wolf! You will reach level 3 and skill Turtle Stance!

4: Mana Golem: Attack the big Golem and use your first Health Potion. Use Turtle Stance all the time and Smite to kill him, when he is low life! Don't use Smite at the beginning of the fight, because someone could steal it then!

5: Lizard: Change your stances as often as possible to get your Monkey's Agility up and kill Lizard! After this camp you are level 4 and skill Bear Stance! It's time to gank now! Use your second Health Potion and gank the lane that needs the most help and try to get a kill! Notice: It's easier to gank with Tiger Stance than with Phoenix Stance!

6: As jungler it is your job to ward the map. When you have some extra gold you must buy Sight Wards and place them at the dragon and mana buff and so on!!

Jungle with Tiger Stance:

Teamfights and 1on1

Teamfights:



You are not allowed to go in the teamfights at first. If you want to go at first in a teamfight, scroll up and play Udyr as tank! So you are the last one who goes in the teamfight and what do you want to do? Don't attack the tank, don't stun the whole team. You will only stun their carry and bring him down with Tiger Stnace! If the carry is down, the teamfight is nearly won! It's easy to kill the others now. At last you must attack the tank. If they run away, stun them with Bear Stance! It will be so easy to win a teamfight, if you have Udyr! Some people say Udyr is useless in Teamfights, but he is not

1on1:



1on1's are quite simple with Udyr. In my opinion, he is one of the best champions in 1on1's! No, he is the best! You must just start with Bear Stance, then go on with Tiger Stance and Turtle Stance. Just spam this combo! You must always change you stances, to get more attack damage and dodge! If you get to much damage, your combo will be like this: Turtle Stance-> Bear Stance-> Turtle Stance-> Bear Stance->etc... So you don't get so much damage and the enemy is all six seconds stunned!
Now I will show you against which enemies not to make a 1on1:

: You can't kill him 1on1, if he has ulti! The reason: With his ulti you can't stun him and that's very, very bad. He will own you in like 10 seconds. So just spam Bear Stance and Turtle Stance and run away as fast as you can!

So that are all champions!

What? I don't say you don't have a chance against Tryndamere? Yes, and I have one main reason! He is easy to kill! Go 1on1 against Tryndamere and you will win! Just spam your Bear Stance, Tiger Stance, Turtle Stance combo and wait until he activates ulti then you run away and spam Bear Stance and Turtle Stance, you will always run in his range and stun him one time! Then after some seconds his ulti is away and you can easily kill him!
And don't forget to use Exhaust!
