Hey ho spaggetios! i´ve heard its good to start off with some jokes ... so

Q. What did the blonde's left leg say to her right leg?
A. Between the two of us, we can make a lot of money.

so now when thats overwith! this is my Build/guide about how i play udyr! Udyr is one of my favorite Champions at league of legends.

the reson i like Udyr ?... well is it anything thats more fun than chasing scared little Champions around the map and stuning them? Nothing and nobody escapes a good Udyr player.

Udyr can be playd in many ways, he can be Ad,Ap or tank, personely.... i play a hybrid ;) my build is based on movment speed, health and slow, you are like a police dog, your not suppose to kill the enemy, you just supposed to chase the bastard and make him unable to move untill your backup arives ;)

so the Question is ... do you like Udyr? do you like jungling? do you like dogs? and most importand... do you like Jim carry? OFC YOU DO :D LETS GO !

regular jungle masteries, 9/21/0.
the simple, smite, magic penetration, dodge and a bit of health :)

Guide Top


the runes... well this is my choice and you may replace the Seals and Quintessence for dodge, but this is how i like to play and with this set i have something like 45 armor extra at lvl 1 from my runes alone, and that make you able to stay in the jungle longer.

Unique Skills

Udyrs abilities.

Monkey's Agility

A great passive overall gives you 10% attack speed and 3% dodge per stack (max 3 stacks)
you get one stack by using one of Udyrs abilities, the great part is that if you keep spamming the spells your 3 stacks will last for ever!

Tiger Stance

a really good ability that gives you a large attack speed bonus and dmg boost for a few seconds, when the big bonus is out you will still get a attackspeed bonus

Turtle Stance

The block! gives your Champion a shield that will block an amount of dmg, the best part is that you get life steal and mana steal! so, this spell will return a % of the dmg you deal to you as both health and mana! one of the spells that makes your champion an awesome jungler!

Bear Stance

the greates of them all! the reason champions run when they see you comming! the reason summoners have nightmares about Udyr at night, The stun! you get a movment boost and your autoattacks will stun enemies! (sure it can only stun the same target once every 6 sec, but if you chase someone down.. it oftens take more then 6 sec) the movment speed boost is also a life line, if you got the same items i do and ghost+bear stance... you cant be cought :) also its great in teamfights! becouse if you turn out to be good at focusing you can basicly have a entire team stunned :)

Phoenix Stance

great for early jungling, has aoe dmg and splash dmg :) and your on fire! ( be carefull, when your this hot the girls might chase you) the spell is overall not that good in late game

Skill Sequence

start of with R for the golem, then i like to skill W at lvl 2 important for early game (explain later), then just max E fast! i like to max Q after that becouse of my jungle style but you may max R if you want.. might be good for creeps :) to be onest you can skill Udyr after your own choice and it will be awesome with whatever skill you upgrade :) thats the beuty of Udyr, but this is my personal recommendation

Guide Top


start with cloth armor and 5 health potions, boots of speed, madred´s, Ninja tabi , then finish the Lantern, quick sheen then Zeal or phage if you like that better, then finish the Trinity force, get the force of nature (might look wierd but the movment speed will help you chaseing to stun enemys,or just fleeing). then its time for the health! get a warmog and start farming, then get the terrifying Frozen mallet! (people will hate you) then finnish the match by selling lantern and getting Atmas impaler !

Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Smite and Ghost or Smite and flash, if you like the nice movment speed boost or flash for the escape or initiate

Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

now for the best part! The jungling, as i said before buy a Cloth armor and 5 health pots, skill R (phoenix) and run the the golem, be sure to stand in the right place (you want to hit all the creeps with your R) use potion as fast they start hitting you, at lvl 1 Smite does 445dmg so watch the golems health and finnish him off, now you are lvl 2 so skill W and move over to the wolfs, stand behind them and start off with an R (again use health pot as fast as possiable) then a quick W and R again (if you do this you get 3 stacks off your passive) and continue with R intill they are all dead, then move over to the Wraiths, be sure to stand in the middle and do like you just did at the wolfs, now for the best part, you now have around 5% left untill lvl 3 you might ask " why not go to the Golems and get lvl 3 ? ", this is why :) , go to the base and get boots and maybe some more pots if you got money, go to the Red buff ( this early in the game the Red Golem dossent have much health) start with W then Press R and start hitting him (activate pot) when they small creeps dies by your R you get lvl 3 And a nice health and mana refill! now skill bear stance and kill the golem with Smite and some more hits, refill your health with a potion and start ganking! ( if the enemy team dosent got a jungle then you can take their blue as well becouse at this time your will be gone :/ ) the enemys will panic when the see Udyr running with bear stance and red buff at lvl 3 !
