Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is indeed my first guide, in no way shape or form do i know how all the mechanics on here work or if i even put my items in the correct order.
I can say this will give you a general idea of how to beat all other udyr guides out there.
Most other guides go mostly tanky relying maybe on a black cleaver but msot of the time just a wits end.
First off most tops do not do a lot of ap dmg. and witds end is not an end game item.
Furthermore the dmg done from wits end is magic dmg and unless you are rolling some heavy ap pen, it will not even come close to the full dmg on most champs.
One of the items that i listed that is questionable is the rageblade, i had to test a bunch of items out for the final or 6th item and i was most pleased with this item for many reasons.
One you can get 8 stacks with udyr faster then you can with Jax.
2. the ap provided with the rageblade adds to the sustain of your constant spammed shield. as does the lifesteal you will get or dmg output from the increased atk speed.
3. when you drop past half (which is about every team fight most of the time) you will gain lifesteal 10% among other added bonus.
Your question to me is wh not go bloodthirster or the king sword for lifesteal for more lifesteal and sustain.
That is because you benefit more from atk speed due to the passive on your W then you do say a champ like yi or any range adc. and lets not forget the extra 80+ on your shield at max stack.
Other off setting items or situational (remember in end game build to counter the one thats fed so you can take them down with ease)
would be maw of malmordius. If often times you find yourself getting hit hard by non skill shot ap attacks, this will come in handy more then a straight magic resistant item (remember alot of players have a ton of ap penspecially when they see you are building mr)) so a shield in cases where you are playing the roll of a adtank burst is far more beneficial to you)
I still see quite a few builds that involve the use of pheonix stance, the reason why it is leveld last and not to the fullest is because of the low dmg out put on single targets.
Thee only time that you should use this stance and even then its not recommended but if you know no one else will be attacking you along the way as you are chasing someone down in bear form by all means pop this for its added passive aoe dot dmg before the stun and Q.
That and if theirs an obvious huge wave of minions the aoe even at rank 3 can be more beneficial then your Q alone.
Lastly i just want to say remember that your passive gives not only atk speed when switching forms but movement speed as well.
so when running away or chasing down, be the smart udyr you are and pop a stance in between your bear form (while your e is on cd) for extra movement.
I also want to mention that with this build even if the champs like ez have flash and e, you will be running (with passive stack 3 up) at about a 545 movement speed, which covers more ground quicker then most players have the time to react with flash and other said get away skills.
Lastly the build is for you guys because i do not find any of the udyr guides that good (yes even diamond players) So this is in hopes for more competition in the futre for my ranked games as well as insight incase i do miss something.
Thank you for your time and feel free to comment. I will challenge anything and anyone.
