Why Play Trundle?

Trundle is a tank killer and has a pretty good lane phase. He can break up team fights and become a scary tank with his ulti. With nice movement speed the only champs you really shouldn't pick him into top would be ranged champions. With ranged champions like Ryze and Lissandra its just really easy to kite Trundle and you'll get destroyed in lane unless they mess up really badly.

When playing Trundle you also have to determine if its better to do Type A or Type B, based on your lane opponent, and based on their team. Currently Trundle excels insanely well at split pushing due to the new mastery [demolish]. He tears through turrets like they never existed.

: Teleport Gives you a ton more global pressure and allows that surprise butt sex down bot lane. Also enables you to split more effectively since all you have to do is split till a team fight then Teleport in

: Ignite What you take when you don't care anymore. KILL EVERYTHING is your life motto at this point and thats what you do to everything that tries to touch you turret. This makes your pre 6 laning phase deadly

: Exhaust isn't always a bad idea to be honest. In a lane versus someone like Darius, or something where you need to get closer faster or you need to output more damage, Exhaust is really useful. Also it can help with peeling for your ADC in the late game

:This is the single most useful summoner in the game. It makes for excellent baits, kill secures, and escapes. If you don't take this or Ghost and you aren't doing something completely cheese like Ignite and Exhaust (actually only that combo is cheese) and you are losing alot, you might wanna consider taking flash more often

: Not one of my favorite summoners but if you take Ghost instead of Flash I can understand. The faster Trundle is the better you can stick to your opponent. Pair this with Boots of Swiftness, Frozen Domain, Raptor Cloak and Phage holy cow your faster than Hecarim and Rammus

Passive: King's Tribute

Whenever an enemy dies near Trundle, he heals for a% of their maximum health.

How I read it
Q: Chomp

ACTIVE: Trundle's next basic attack deals additional physical damage and Slow icon slows his target by 75% for 0.1 seconds.

After biting his target, Trundle gains bonus attack damage for 8 seconds and reduces his target's attack damage by half that amount for the same duration.

Chomp resets Trundle's autoattack timer.

How I read it
W: Frozen Domain

ACTIVE: Trundle coats the target area in ice for 8 seconds. While inside, he gains bonus attack speed, movement speed, and 20% increased healing and health regeneration from all sources.

How I read it
E: Pillar of Ice

ACTIVE: Trundle projects a pillar of ice at the target location for 6 seconds, Airborne icon knocking back everyone directly over it on cast, acting as impassable terrain for the duration and Slow icon slowing enemies around it.

How I read it
R: Subjugate

ACTIVE: Trundle drains the life force out of the target enemy champion, instantly dealing magic damage, healing for the damage done and stealing a % of their armor and magic resistance. He then applies the same effects to the target again over the next 4 seconds.

How I read it

Trundle Type A: DPS/Split monster

So this is a theoretical build dps split and it'll probably work against more aggressive lane opponents.

Path: Precision

Spoiler: Click to view

Path: Domination

Spoiler: Click to view

Now your main thing to do is split. You split harder than a banana, especially when your team is looking for an objective. When they do look for an objective check to see if you have Teleport. If you do push out a lane farthest from the objective. So if your team is going for baron, push out bot, that way you get to make a judgement call. You can either Teleport to help your team fight at baron , or you can get towers bot lane and if the enemy gets baron then make sure you get a tower or 2 for it.

Trundle Type B: Tankier split push

So this is very similar playstyle just less high risk high reward. In this set up you go for a tankier rune setup and depending on how you are faring in lane you go either Titanic Hydra or Ravenous Hydra. This is honestly a great style because the split push potential is great and you also offer more in team pushes. Plus it will help you alot more the better you are at csing.

Try to cs to the best of your ability and you can use your q to help clear winions(I call minions winion because champions dont win games, winions do). If your enemy gets too close to them feel free to auto>q them for a bit of free damage then back off a bit. If your opponent is hard engaging on you that usually means one of a few things:

    1) The jungler is coming and trying to kill you, meaning you should be on the alert
    2) hes going to get a lvl on you within the next winion or 2 and he'll have the lvl advantage on you, meaning you should try to get some distance till you guys have the same lvl
    3) he's realy freaking stupid
    4) he's really freaking fed, meaning run and cs under turret, even though he'll most likely dive you
When you do encounter a situation number 3 fight back on your frozen domain. If they start to run the use your pillar to cut off their escape, and never forget about your auto>q>auto combo. Once you hit 6 if they try to hard engage onto you, the through the fight make sure you ult, if you do it at the beginning then they'll just run away. Also if you do turret dive make sure you use your ulti and that you have your flash to make a flashy escape.

Team Fights

The best source of engage is something that appears from nowhere........Like a giant Pillar of Ice cutting you off from the rest of your team. Your Pillar of Ice will help you make easy picks or force a flash or an engage. If you do go for a team fight, ult the most fed or closest tank on your team and jump onto their mid or ADC and get rid of them. The reason you ult the tank is because your team can tear apart the tank with more ease and you get increased resistances making it harder for you to be taken down. Using your Pillar of Ice and Frozen Domain to catch up to enemies is never a bad idea
