Introduction

Hey all,
This is my first guide on Mobafire. I play League Of Legends quite a long time now, and i researched builds of others to let this build fit my playstyle. This build fits my playstyle. If you don't play my style, this build could be less effective.
Udyr is fun to play. He has a stun, high mobility, a shield, damage over time, and great gank possibilities.
I play Udyr on the phoenix way. I started with tiger Udyr but when i tried phoenix Udyr, I never played tiger Udyr in the jungle anymore.

Runes

For runes I take:

Runes

Greater Mark of Lethality
9

Greater Seal of Attack Speed
9

Greater Glyph of Armor
9

Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
3

Armor penetration marks: Greater Mark of Desolation
Attack speed seals: Greater Seal of Attack Speed

These runes provide me great jungling and, for later in the game, great teamfights.

Items




To start the game I grab some decent item's for ganking with Udyr. I start with Boots of Speed and 2 Health Potion's



Then I start my route. This can be seen in the "Jungling" Chapter.





I try to recall when I have at least 850 gold. Then I can get my Mercury's threads and (if I have the money) a Madred's Razors or Vampiric Scepter. If you don't have enough money for the Madred's Razors then get the Vampiric Scepter.


Next up is the Wit's End. I get this item for the attack speed, that lets my Phoenix Stance have more proc's. And, of course, for the Magic Resistance.


I get Phage because it is, in my opinion, 1 of the best items for Udyr. Phage gives health and attack damage. It also gives a 25% chance to slow by 30% for 2.5 seconds, on hit.


Sheen is a Great item on Udyr because of his low cooldowns and his basic attack based playstyle.


Now quickly finish the Trinity Force.


From now on, Situational items are in the game. Here is a list:



Great item if tanks are being a problem. Get in this case the Recurve Bow first. If you don't buy this sell your Madred's Razors!

This is another item out of Phage slow on each hit is really handy on Udyr and you get pretty much HP

Great item, gives some extra sustain and tankyness too with the lifesteal. It can turn fights paired with Turtle Stance.

A must-have against Karthus. You could also consider it when playing against a fed/strong AP carry.

When your support is not getting the Randuin's Omen you could get this. Ask your support if he/she is taking it, if not buy a Heart of Gold early on and take this item in a later stage of the game.

It can be a valuable item. However, there are way better items out there!

Great item when fed, but take this when you are sure you're score will be great.

Some people consider this viable. I do understand why, but to get more healing lifesteal is better and I already have plenty of magic resistance. But that's my opinion.

Nice item against hard AD carry's

Great item for more tankyness! Always take this in combination with Atma's Impaler

Great item! Take this when you deal with fed AD carry's and AP carry's.

Pretty new item but so viable against AP carry's

Take this against heavily fed AP based chars!

Take this against heavily fed AD based chars!

Great choice to get more DPS!

Great choice for more DPS!

Viable due to CoolDown Reduction and armor penetration. The active comes in handy too!

Great choice when having much HP!

Good for more Attack speed and more Phoenix Stance procs

You could consider this...

Take this is you feel like having mana problem's. I never needed it though.

sight ward
Take some wards with you to ward when jungling.

Skill Sequence

There are a couple of skill sequences on Udyr. The ones I use the most is Phoenix Jungle Udyr and Tiger Lane Udyr.

Phoenix Jungle Udyr


Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Phoenix Jungle Udyr starts with 1 point in Phoenix Stance(how obvious!)after that 1 in Turtle Stance, then another 1 in Phoenix Stance, then 1 in Bear Stance for the rest focus your skill points on Phoenix Stance, 2nd priority Turtle Stance and then Tiger Stance. You could take 1 point of Tiger Stance at level 10 for more Phoenix Stance triggers. End with Bear Stance.

Tiger Lane Udyr


Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Tiger Lane Udyr starts with 1 point in Tiger Stance, after that 1 in Turtle Stance then 1 in Bear Stance. At the levels after this focus Tiger Stance, then Turtle Stance, then Bear Stance and last but not least Phoenix Stance.

Summoner Spells

Spells I recommend



For Summoner Spells I recommend to use Flash and Smite when jungling.

Other great spells




Exhaust


Great spell, can make you win a fight easily.



Ghost


Some extra movement speed is always welcome.



Surge


some attack speed and abillity power grants more damage output.



Teleport


When you play Tiger Lane Udyr solo top a must have.



Heal


Could be nice to save your ***, but i dont like the spell at all.
It had had a decent buff though...



Cleanse
this spell is great if the enemy has much CC. still i think flash is better.



Ignite


A extra tick of damage to finish off a fleeing enemy


Bad spells for Udyr





Clarity


Use Turtle Stance to get your mana back. Use blue early game in jungle, and try not to spam too much skills while laning early game



Clairvoyance


Leave this to support.



Revive


Too long cooldown



Promote


Why does it even exist?

Jungling

As jungle route i start at wolves, I'll be in time for the blue spawn when it gets pulled by a ally. Then I head to wraiths, Mini Golems, red buff and then gank.

Now on a line:

Wolves
Blue buff
Wraiths
Mini Golems
Red buff
Gank
