I've had a lot of Success with this build. And I won't Take up a lot of room here Trying to explain things. As most things are pretty Self Explanatory.

I play Udyr as a Solo top or a top laner, NOT as a Jungle.

But Just in case. Without further Ado is the Break down of everything in my Guide.

Guide Top

Summoner Spells

I take Ignite and Flash, For the extra Movement and The Extra damage. Easy and Simple.

Exhaust is also good instead of flash, Shorter CD makes it a little better But it's maneuverability is very lacking in comparison to Flash.

Ignite can also be replaced with Clarity or Teleport. For More Mana or better map control.

Item Build.

As you can see, Pretty standard, Start with Boots and Only Grab 2 potions then head out to your lane.

your first trip back should be around level 6, Or after 3 kills, Or After you've successfully Downed a turret. Whichever comes first.

Save Frozen Mallet for last as that is your Trump Card.
If you Build Everything else. And then Giants Belt. Then go out and Own some face.
Then Recall back and Pick up Frozen Mallet, You'll Dominate any melee In a 1v1 Encounter. (In most cases 1v3 too)

If you're already here. It means you know what Udyrs Abilities do.

If not. Heres a quick Run down of what to expect and when to use it.

Tiger Stance

Q- Single target damage, You wanna be in this stance to clear minion waves. and to deal Damage, After Turtle.
Never engage an enemy With Tiger Stance.
(Max this skill first)

Turtle Stance

W- Tank/Healing Stance. This stance is Your bread and Butter, Per-say as you can just stay in this stance in the laning phase or when you're alone and watch your Health and Mana go all the way back to full. :D
(Max this second)

Bear Stance

E- Initiation stance. This ability is Practically Udyrs Ulti, And the Single ability that gives him an Upper hand in combat. One Second Stun Every 6 Seconds!?
You heard that right. So in the time it takes to shift to one stance and Back, You can already Stun again!
Always Put 1 point into this skill at level 6. and Max it Third.

Phoenix Stance

R- AoE Stance. This basically gives every 3rd attack Udyr does a frontal cone fire effect. And gives him a short burst of AoE.
****. only gets 3 levels.

What can I say? I'm Crazy.

I use all out damage Masteries and Runes because Udyr has a Passive tankiness that allows one to do this. PLUS. having all of this as Damage in a Passive way. Gives you free reign to build Defensive Items, And Freak people out with the Tonne of damage you Deal.

Udyr is just Beastly like that.

Hah! Beastly...

Additional Notes

I'll Go through a quick Scenario to show you how OP Udyr can really be.
But you won't know Until you actually try This in game!

In this I will referring the stances as Q, W, E, and R

So basically.

You're up against 2 people in top lane, They've pushed you back all the way to your tower.

You're already level 6 So you have your stun, and you've Just finished Building Trinity Force.
It's time for a double Kill.

So It doesn't really matters who you go up against if it's Not Trynd or Jayce.
(Any Melee/Bruiser)

E, Then Engage, Go for Lowest Health/lowest armor first. The Squishier, The better. Try to get first hit under the tower. Immediately after that first hit. Q, Apply Your Bleed to the target, and the Again Hit E to Re stun, and the Use W for your bubble, Then Keep alternating in that Pattern. E->Q->E->W->E->Q
That Combo, Makes Udyr Ridiculously Powerful.

And Without The need for an Ulti for High Damage output or Kill Securing. We Are OP.

And with That. GG
