[14.8] Trundledaddy's Trundle Top guide 👹🦴

By Trundledaddy

Trundle connoisseur, masters+ for 5 seasons on trundle exclusively (different roles)
These are my socials:


My stream


My tiktok


My discord


My matchup spreadsheet for toplane matchups


My twitter

PROS + Every game is winnable
+ Strongest 1v1
+ Can split push effectively
+ Sustain in lane
+ Strongest lvl 1 in game
+ Most gigachad champion
+ Pillar is OP
CONS - Can get zoned easily when behind
- Hard to 1v1 when behind
- No gap closer
- Teemo exists
- Not that strong without ult
- Probably doesn't smell very good
If you don't want to check out the excel sheet, I will try to summerize it up here.

Conditioning
In terms of the runes, generally you go conditioning into tank matchups, or matchups where you just want to scale.

Second Wind
This is quite a strong rune for when you're going Dorans Shield agianst ranged matchups, the synergy between Dorans Shield, Second wind and Trundle's passive makes the laning phase in sufferable lanes slightly more managable.

Bone plating
Boneplating is usually taken into people with an autoattack reset or all in potential, such as Camille, Jax, Assasins (except Akali), Darius, Wukong.
FLASH
I usually take Flash every game, it's just such a strong summoner spell, and can allow you to get some cheeky Flash auto attack (Q) reset kills in lane, and it is quite good for getting out of a pickle.
Teleport
As well as Flash, I usually take Teleport for it as well, since I play a more splitpushing playstyle, and it allows me for some great backdoors, or some even greater surprise appearances in teamfights.
Ghost
However, you can swap either of the summoners out with Ghost, if you feel like the enemy team comp won't make your Flash worthy, such as a full ranged enemy team comp, if you flash on them they will usually just Flash or dash away, and Ghost helps to keep up with them.

CLICK THIS LINK FOR MY MATCHUP SHEET WHEN TO BUILD WHAT IN LANING PHASE

The first 2 items


ravenous hydra

Plated Steelcaps

Blade of the ruined king

Hullbreaker
Hullbreaker (DONT RUSH HULL ANYMORE) Ravenous hydra is a BIS item on trundle, must buy always. Bork or Wits End second, depending on the matchup, other fighters/ranged you can do Bork and against tanks/magic you can do witsend for the mixed damage.

The first 3 items are almost always Ravenous Hydra, Blade of the Ruined King, then the other one, and then Hullbreaker, you should only ever really deviate from those if you decide to do witsend 2nd instead of Bork and then you can get bork 4th or another tank item.

Items after the first 2 items.


Death's Dance
Death's Dance is a decent item to plot in 4th especially if you have wits end second, so you have some armor, mr, tenacity, lifesteal and a bit of everything
Frozen Heart
Frozen Heart is also a strong 4th item if you're against someone like Tryndamere, Quinn or Akshan, if enemy is full AD, Frozen Heart + Death's Dance makes you completely unkillable.
Guradian Angel
Guardian Angel, this buy is a bit iffy, but I do sometimes run into the situation where there is 1 teamfight left to win it all, and you have the money from a Stopwatch you bought earlier, which you might consider for important fights, it doesn't really help you in the 1v1 situations but it's always a neat thing to have in the bag if you can't afford another full item or you are more teamfighting.
Sterak's Gage
Sterak's Gage is purely if you're the main tank for your team and frontlining for the bros, it offers little to no 1v1 power in comparison to the other items, and I would only build this 5th or 6th if I am the main tank/teamfighting frontline for the team.
Maw of Malmortius
Maw of Malmortius is a very strong pick if you're against an AP toplaner and buy Hexdrinker early on in the game, but usually a Hexdrinker + Wit's End is enough until 5th or 6th item.



-OR-
Plated Steel Caps > ARMOR
These are my go to boots, due to the fact that the runes chosen give a lot of tenacity as well, so I don't go Mercury's Treads unless I need it ASAP for laning phase.
Mercury's Treads > TENACITY
Super super strong in some lanes, like Teemo or Gragas lanes.
King's Tribute (Passive) When an enemy unit dies near Trundle, he heals for 2 - 7% (levels 1- 18) of its maximum Health.

Chomp Trundle lunges at his opponent with his next basic attack, dealing physical damage and slowing his target by 75% for 0.1 second.
This attack increases Trundle's Attack Damage for 5 seconds, with his opponent losing half of this amount.

Frozen Domain makes Trundle coats target location with ice for 8 seconds, gaining Movement Speed, Attack Speed and 25% increased healing and regeneration from all sources.

Pillar of Ice makes Trundle creates an icy pillar at target location for 6 seconds, becoming impassable terrain and slowing all nearby enemy units.

Subjugate makes Trundle drains an enemy champion's maximum Health as Magic Damage and 40% of their Armor and Magic Resist, half immediately and half over 4 seconds. The Armor and Magic Resist is returned 4 seconds after the drain ends.
Hullbreaker: Get your Hullbreaker and splitpush, 1v2 their jungler and top, become a huge mid game monster with your 2/3 items, and completely dominate the side lane and absorb pressure for your team to get back into the game if behind.
Blade of the ruined king: Get your Your Blade of the Ruined King and sidelaning against any other fighter is going to be a piece of cake.
Hullbreaker: Get your focus on objectives and lane dominance.
Hullbreaker: Split on the opposite side of objectives with your teleport, especially if enemy toplaner doesn't have TP, you can chose to group up or split to win, but to split you need to be stronger than enemy top

Is Trundle for you?



I hope so, Trundle is a strong sidelaner, who wins lvl 1 and lvl 2 against most matchups, and then proceeds to dominate the sidelane throughout the game, so if you are a lone wolf, a splitpusher or just an overall gigachad, then Trundle is definitely for you, thank you for reading, please leave a thumbs up and/or a comment with what I could do better thank you!
