Hey Mobafire. This is my first guide on Mobafire and its on Tristana. As you know , you can get Tristana for free by liking League of Legends on Facebook. Tristana is a very strong champion that can jump in or out of battle and can do insane damages late game.

21/0/9 is a typical set up for most AD ranged carry because it offer a bunch of offense and some utility like exp boost and increase buff duration.

Summoner Spells

Good for escaping,slowing the enemy so you can kill them, and saving your teammate's butts

Can be use to escape and get closer to your enemy so you can exhaust them or secure the kill.

Guide Top

Optional Spells

Good for bursting your enemy down and securing kills. I get this if my team have a lot of exhaust and no ignite.

Good spell to chase down enemy and to escape faster. I never really used this on Tristana so use it if you're not a big fan of Ignite or Exhaust

Greater Mark of Desolation for Damage early,mid,and late game
to survives against AD champion
to survives against AP champion
to last hit the minion better and to harass the enemy early game.

Skill Sequence

I put two points into Explosive Shot and three on Rocket Jump before level 6 so I can last hit the minion and harass the enemy and rocket jump in or out of battle. I max Rocket Jump first because I mostly will be the first target in team fight so I can always jump away of them or I can jump into fight and slow the enemy with my jump. I max Rapid Fire next because it increase Tristana's attack speed so you can do more damage during team fight and very good for split pushing.Max Explosive Shot last because it does weak damage most of the game, but it is a good healing reduction skill.

I start with Doran's Blade since i'm in a duo lane most of the time. You can start with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion if you are soloing mid or top.First time back, you should get be able to get B. F. Sword and Boots of Speed if you farm really well or was able to get first blood or a kill. If you got push back really bad and wasn't able to farm enough for your B. F. Sword, then you can get another Doran's Blade and Boots of Speed and one or two Health Potion and go back and farm for that B. F. Sword. Next time back, finish your Berserker's Greaves and get your Pickaxe. After taking down tower, dragon, creeps, and enemy champion, you should have your Infinity Edge. After picking up your Infinity Edge, get Phantom Dancer as your next items because it offer a lot of attack speed, critical strike, and movement speed which Tristana needs. After Phantom Dancer, you can get whatever item you want depending on your game. You can get Banshee's Veil if the enemy's AP caster/carry is fed. Last Whisper if they have some armor items like Sunfire Cape or Thornmail. The Bloodthirster if you want some life steal so you can survive during team fight. This is my typical final build in games.

Guide Top

Optional Items

A good item if your team really need you in team fight and you know you will be the first target.Replace Banshee's Veil or The Bloodthirster

A really great item if you want to escape any hard cc like Warwick's ultimate or Morgana's stun and its CHEAP!!!!. Replace Banshee's Veil

Get this if your enemy has a lot of tanky champion like Malphite or Jarvan IV. Replace The Bloodthirster

I personally never ever got this items on any of my AD carry before but many people seem to like it. Replace any items that you don't like.

If there's a lot of cc in the other team, get this.Replace Berserker's Greaves

Well, I hope you guys like my first build on mobafire. Please post a comment below if you see any grammar or spelling mistake or any suggestion to make this guide better. If you like playing any AD carry like Ashe, Miss Fortune, or Vayne, you can use this same build on them cause I used this for all my AD carry
