Pros and cons Back to Top
Great early game
Snowballs easily and can carry games quite quickly after that.
Isn't really hurt too badly by not snowballing or even behind due to her good farm.
REALLY mobile.
Her ult prevents people from chasing her down, or a little extra burst damage to grab a kill.

She tends to fall off a little bit late game, if the enemy team is way ahead or both teams are full builds.
She suffers a lot from hard cc.
Gameplay Back to Top
I've touched on this before but generally early game you're gonna farm safe hitting as much as harass as you can (E passive works really well for this when you kill minions it does AOE damage, a small amount but every bit helps!). Then when the time is right, you strike, usually after support has used their main cc/damage or when your support lands some good damage/cc. If the latter is the case, make sure you play around the support, you can W in so you have a lot of range to work with.

We go press the attack because this gives allows Tristana to dash out the most DPS, by hitting enemies 3 times in a row, they will take increase in adaptive damage. This has a very good synergy with our explosive charge ability. Allowing us to deal massive damage during the early game and potentially securing first blood.
