Summary

This build focus's on Tryndamere's ability to deal a consistent output of high damage. The runes help Tryndamere have a greater chance of critical strikes early game, and a higher base attack speed for the Berserker's Greaves and Phantom Dancers to work off of. The armor pen. marks allow Tryndamere to deal with tanky champions that stack armor such as Mordekaiser and Shen. The armor pen. combine with Tryndamere's excessive damage late game (very well complimented by his Bloodlust ability, which grants him more critical damage) lets him plow through most tanks. The item build works off itself and the runes. If the item build can get set up, it can make Tryndamere a very formidable champion late game.

Runes

Start with 9 Greater Mark of Desolation, 9 Greater Seals of Malice, 9 Greater Glyphs of Alacrity, and 3 Greater Quintessence of Desolation. Read summary for why.

Masteries

Set your mastery's up in a standard 21 - 9 - 0 format. Tryndamere, while isn't squishy, can be easily run over by other high dps champions. Since his items aren't helping this cause, this defense mastery's help him in some situations where extra armor and magic resist are needed. While it may not seem like much it can be the life saver in some situations. Since Tryndamere is an offense based champion it only makes sense to put most mastery points into offense. The most important offense mastery's being lethality and alacrity. Tryndamere performs best when he can consistently put out critical strikes quickly, and that do high damage.

Items

Items are set up to compliment each other. The executioners calling is a great item at the beginning because it increases critical strike chance (as mentioned before critical strikes are pretty much what Tryndamere runs on) and gives you life steal. This allows you to regain health by clearing minion waves. Combine with bloodlust you can have all your health back in no time, provided you not being harassed by enemy champions.

Summoner Spells

Summoner spells aren't terribly important. But heal is unnecessary because Tryndamere already can easily get back health. I recommend going with Ignite and Exhaust. If you can pick up early kills, great. Ignite will pick up the kills where they just barely get away. Exhaust is trying to prevent them FROM barely getting away. Stacking exhaust with mocking shout, or using them back to back is a great way to easily catch up to enemy champions. When chasing, its better to slow them down to speed up. The point is for them to not get to their destination.
