Introduction:

Welcome to my guide: Udyr the animal burster. You may be thinking "Why should i use this build instead of this:". The answer is very simple...you don't want to play Udyr like a tank. This build focuses on Udyr's huge damage output, burst or dps.
Here are some of my games:


And the most important:

Pros and Cons:

Pros:
-very good ganker
-strong dueling potential
-fast clears
-strong splitpusher
-insane burst(only for this build)

Cons:
-reliant on Devourer stacks
-not so tanky(for this build)
-doesn't deal to much damage until Tri-Force


Guide Top

Items:

Stalker's Blade: Udyr deals damage only with his basic attacks so he must stay close to his target. This item helps him go in basic attack range.
Enchantment: Bloodrazor: Udyr mainly uses his basic attacks to do damage. The passive is on-hit and also helps against tanks. The attack speed part is very nice too since we have Titanic Hydra.
Trinity-Force: Udyr's Q enhances his next basic attack, sheen does the same thing. The Rage passive helps him to stick to targets.
Titanic Hydra: The active really improves your burst and the stats help you a lot with the pushing.
The Bloodthirster: this item amplifies a lot your burst damage and makes you more durable.
Warmog's Armor: this item makes tankier and heals you a lot. The regen is usefull before Teamfights if you are low health, because you can't leave.
Mercury's Treads: these boots make you non-burstable by their mages and helps you deal with CC wich is Udyr's worst enemy.

RIP IN PEPPERONI

Wit's End: YOU WILL BE MISSED OLD FRIEND
But on a more serious note, don't buy it. It was good, but no more, no more.
This item is still very good on pheonix Udyr, but on tiger Udyr the only thing that deals magical damage is the item itself, so you're better buying something else.

Other items:

Blade of the Ruined King: it is good against tanks or for splitpushing, because you will reach 2,5 attack speed. Take it instead of The Bloodthirster.
Infinity Edge: it will make you crit more frequently(Trinity-Force gives you only 10% crit chance) and boost your DPS. Take it instead of The Bloodthirster.
Skirmisher's Sabre: it is good if you can stick to them, because you auto attack a lot and it also makes you tankier.
Statikk Shiv: it is very good if you want to burst their ADC or APC very quickly. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra.
Youmuu's Ghostblade: for sticking power. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra.
Randui's Omen: it is good for sticking power and gives you a lot of tankiness(vs. phisycal damage). Take it instead of Warmog's Armor.
Spirit Visage: it is good with a life steal item and makes you tankier(vs. magic damage). Take it instead of Warmog's Armor.
Frozen Heart: if you are behind and you need that CDR, you can buy this, you have enough MR. Take it instead of Warmog's Armor.
Sightstone: take this if you are playing Udyr support, but in that case you are reading the wrong guide
Guinsoo's Rageblade: Miracle item. This item is simply amazing. It gives you: splitpushing power, dueling power, AOE damage. Just try. Take it instead of The Bloodthirster
Dead Man's Plate: this item deletes your only weakness, you are kiteable. The armor is nice too. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra.
Death's Dance: Along with the AD this item gives, it makes you almost unkillable in teamfights and that is exactly what you need if they are fed or just grouping all the time. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra

Boots:

The best boots for Udyr are Mercury's Treads, but you can take Berseker's Greaves to reach 2,5 attack speed or Boots of Mobility to gank better. Ninja Tabi if they have no AP champ in their team.

Summoner Spells:

Smite: duh, you're the junler
Ghost: for ganking or chasing
Flash: in my opinion, Ghost is better on Udyr, but if you need to escape over a wall, they have Jarvan in their team or a champion with dash/blink, you can take it
Teleport: for those stacks
Clairvoyance: maybe if you want to make some Smite steals
Clarity: in some scenarios it might be usefull
Heal: for sustain and it still gives movement speed like Ghost
Barrier: just take Heal
Cleanse: don't take it
Ignite: not very good, but you can take it for killing fleeing enemies from distance
Exhaust: for dueling power, but you have enough of that
Garrison: wrong map

Masteries:

I go 18/6/6. Those 18 points in ferocity will help you deal more damage, because afterall you are the damage dealer. The 6 points in cunning will give you some sustain and you need that, because you are a farm jungler. Finally, put 6 points in resolve, some damage reduction never hurts.


Guide Top

Runes:

Just take what you want. I don't think you will make a new rune page only for using this build.
If you still want some runes, take these:
AD marks
Armor seals
MR glyphs
CDR per level quintesseces


Guide Top

Jungling route:

]
1. Start with Gromp and use Smite on it
2. Do Blue Buff and use one pot
3. Do Wolves and use the second pot
4. Head to Red Buff and use Smite on it to recover some health
5. Gank Mid. If you can't do that, clear the Crows
6. Kill the Scuttle Crab to gain vision of the Dragon. If Bot your bot is alive and their jungler or Bot is dead do the Dragon.


Guide Top

Unique Skills:

1. When chasing, after you stun your target try to go in front of them to block their movement
2. When you are jungling, stun the big monster, use q and attack twice then use turtle stance until the mark expires, after that repeat
3. When you are chasing someone or you are running from someone, use bear stance and turtle stance to keep tour stacks up. If you are close enough you can use pheonix stance instead to damage them


Guide Top

Important things:

1. You can solo everyone.
2. No one can solo you.
3. You can solo 2 of them.
