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.
I love this build...i've done a lot of great games with this build..if you stay safe in the beginning this build should work and be great for you. The only problems I've encountered with this build is when you do her Rocket Jump into team fights...DO NOT DO THAT! Why do you not do her Rocket Jump in the middle of a team fight? Because the enemy is dropping AOEs and stuns and whatever they click on will get hurt and this build is very squishy until the end if you get a
Frozen Mallet. I've done the jump before..trust me..you dont want this..you will drop in a matter of seconds and will become useless in fights.
I found the life steal to be very important for Tristana because after a team battle or single battle i've been able to heal back up in a few hits on minions and get right back into battle. Even in battle you can hit a minion a few times and if you have these items you will be able to stay alive for the most part. Also, after you have all your speed attack items I would get rid of your Berserker's Greaves and buy Boots Of Swiftness. Why? you ask. Because, once you get all of your items you will already be able to attack really fast and you may possibly need to go ninja a few towers or possibly get away from a team fight that goes wrong and you should always have someone alive so they can protect your towers. Also, they help you get to battles faster.
I go with Doran's Blade first because it has pretty much everything. It has the life steal(small ammount), the health, and the attack. You want to move into making greaves because you already have the little attack bonus and life steal, possibly your potion still available and need to be a little faster in running |also gives you bonus attack speed which can help the little life steal you have. Then of course you go into Stark's because well, even though you have the speed you still need more life steal because the little that you have will help but not as much as it could.
Stark's is great for life suck and more speed. Then onto some attack!
Great thing about getting the Rapid Fire skill first is that you can gain a lot of gold faster and since you already have a speed advantage jungling may be an option as well. Im not sure about jungling becase I have not tried it yet so maybe try it out for youself and I will possibly update to tell how it goes.
The Bloodthirster is amazing damage and adds to your life steal..so right now you're pretty fast, you have attack speed, and you're a life stealing monster from hell. Eventually, you will need more speed as everyone gets a little more items they are most likely to add some speed if not you can run them down. Also i found that if you are much faster than the enemy then you can run behind them and push them into a tower if they are attempting to range hit the tower..or possibly get away from the tower using your Ultimate.
You do not have much mana but you will not need a lot as you will be able to attack so fast and hit quite hard you wont have to use many skills unless you want to pop on your Rapid Fire or as I said before use your Ultimate Buster Shot to push them into a tower or maybe push them so your team can pick at them until they die which is my most fun thing to do and its quite funny how people get so close to the tower and I Rocket Jump behind them and push them so far into the towers they have no chance(works especially well on tanks). I find myself only using Rapid Fire at the end of the game to take down towers or use it in a big fight to take down tanks.
If This build does not work for you add me in game i'll assist you so you can become great with Tristana. Overall great build if you like to do damage, attack very fast, and stay alive for the most part. I love speed attacking and life steal so this is the perfect build for me.
Tristana if used right should be able to jump over walls and get away when she needs to. You should be able to get into a team fight stand back and if your health starts dropping jump a wall and go kill a couple of minions or something and get back into the fight.
End Game you should sell the Doran's Blade and buy an Infinity Edge or maybe another Bloodthirsterand you should be able to do a lot of damage, have great attack speed, and be able to life steal your way to victory.
