Hi guys!This is my 1st builds so don`t be hard on me!Some of you may think that this is not a good build because it is focused on laning rather than jungling.But some people are just bored of jungling with Trundle all the time and want some early lane action so i want to give them that.I hope the build is useful.

Story of a troll

Trolls have never been well-regarded beings on Valoran. Generally speaking, they are barbaric, cannibalistic, and sneaky. They are creatures relegated to the murky recesses of the world, hidden away from most intelligent beings. Despite their maleficent natures, however, the Ruhgosk never deserved the grisly fate that was visited upon them. Generations ago, a twisted necromancer known as Hakolin the Bonecrafter attempted to enslave the Ruhgosk tribe. These trolls are considerably more gentle than their ill-mannered brethren, although still uncouth by human standards. The Ruhgosk fought tooth and claw against the necromancer, ultimately driving him from their land. As a parting gift, Hakolin afflicted the trolls with a leprous disease, forever cursing the members of the tribe. The leprosy would have rotted their flesh away to nothing were it not for the trolls' natural ability to regenerate. Caught forever in a hideous rotting state, the Ruhgosk endured their curse while desperately in search of a cure. They never found one.

A wise Ruhgosk shaman learned that he could magically bind the disease to a single troll, provided that the troll could bear the weight of the entire tribe's curse upon himself. However, there was no such troll...until the birth of Trundle. His ability to regenerate is so profound that it appeared as if he did not carry the disease. As Trundle grew, he came to understand his gift and what it could do for his people. When he came of age, he took the curse from his tribe in a baptism of searing agony. Through the shaman's ritual, Trundle became a horrifying creature whose flesh constantly sloughs off his body, only to be re-grown in an unremitting cycle. He has joined the League of Legends in hopes of eventually finding someone who could dispel the heinous curse completely.

"I've learned a thing or two about pain! Let me show you!" –- Trundle

-Whenever an enemy unit near Trundle dies, he heals for 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6% of their maximum health.

Range: 1000 (estimate)
-(Active): Trundle enhances his next standard attack to instead bite his opponent, dealing physical damage equal to a base amount plus a percentage of his attack damage.

This attack increases Trundle's attack damage for 8 seconds, with his opponent losing half of this amount for the same duration.

Cost: 40 mana
Cooldown: 4 seconds
-(Active): Trundle infects a target location with his curse for 8 seconds, gaining attack speed, movement speed, and crowd control reduction while standing on it.

Cost: 60 mana
Cooldown: 15 seconds
Range to Center of AoE: 900 (estimate)
Radius of AoE: 1000 (estimate)
-Active): Trundle creates a plagued beacon at a target location for 6.5 seconds, which becomes impassable terrain and slows all nearby enemy units while they are in the vicinity of it and for 1.25 seconds after they leave the area.

Cost: 60 mana
Range: 1000
Pillar Radius: 125
Slow Radius: 375 (estimate)
Sight Radius: 1200 (estimate
-(Active): Trundle immediately steals health (by dealing magic damage) and a percentage of their armor and magic resistance from his target. Over the next 6 seconds the amount of health, armor, and magic resistance stolen is doubled.

Cost: 75 mana
Range: 650 (estimate)

Skill Sequence

i like to take points i all 3 abilities first and then max out Rabid Bite and Contaminate.There is no need to focus on PoF,just max it out late game.

Guide Top


I like a standard rune set that is amazing early game!
-Gives you lot of healt and combines great with Dorans Shield
-maybe some of you may not know this but Trundle has a great crit and crit chance so i like to boost it with a couple of runes
Greater Mark of Desolation-Helps you in battle with tanky champions.Very useful early and mid game
-Good against mages.they will rly fear you because of Trundles chasing abilities.

Guide Top


I pick 21 points in attack to boost his damage and 9 in defense for armor and magic res. boost which is goes great with my runes.

Guide Top


Dorans Shield-Since i`m laning this is so much better than Clothes Armor and HP potions.It gives you health and armor and if you play smart you will hardly lose any health while dishing out a lot of damage.

-Boots main usage is movement but these ones also come with magic res. which goes great with glyphs i pick.
-Awesome item and goes great with Trudle.Slow,Health and a little attack damage,what more could you want if your playing a tanky dps character.
-This is just pure awesome!.Goes very well with runes it makes tanks go crazy and also nice damage.
ater buying this you will be unstoppable.Armor,a little magic damage damage and Lot of healt.This combined with Frozen Mallet will make you pretty tanky.
-HEHE! Now it gets serious.A troll with almost 3700 hp and about 229 damage!Scary.But don`t own too much because Riot like they always do wil start nerfing
-This will round all those numbers.Movement,attack,ap.......Awesome!

Optional items

For optional items you have many choices:
1. -Nice item.Health,Armor,life regen.You can always switch this for Sunfire cape
2. This is the legendary item.Only the boldest of men and women dare take the risky trip to the hottest spot in Valoran, in the very center of the Shurima Desert. Those who successfully make the journey may bathe their swords in a magical pool of the purest water known to this world. Any edge dipped into this pool will stay sharper and strike truer than any other sword.You can switch this with The Bloodthirster but since i have build crit already lifesteal is more needed.
3. -Low price for what it gives you.I mean 50 damage and attack speed.Just beatiful.You can switch it with The Blothirster.
4. -Trollllll armor!The living armor protected the greatest troll warrior in the entire realm during the bloodiest and most devastating battles of the Rune Wars. Deep within the dark woods of Crystone the living armor waits to protect its next owner. A word of warning required before seeking out will protect you for a time, but when it grows tired of you, who will protect you from it?
Warmog's Armor is an advanced item in League of Legends. It requires 100 minion kills minus 10 for each hero kill and assist to reach its full potential of 1370 (920+450) HP and 45 (30+15) health per five seconds. As such, it is most significant for tanks that have adequate farming abilities. If you managed to max out 6 Warmog's Armors, they would grant you a bonus 8220 (5520+2700) Health and 270 (180+90) HP Regen.Amazing!
5. -Very good!100 armor!But it isn`t my main because it gives mana instead of health and health reg.Very good anyway

Summoner Spells

Since your not jungling there is no need for smite so i replace it with .Good for chasing and escaping.Combine it with Pillar of Filth and Contaminate to make an epic escape!
-Nice for chasing combined with Ghost and PoF.
How to escape with Trundle:
-You are low on hp and at least two or three enemies are chasing and you know that you can`t do anything against them 3 on 1(2on1) so you activate PoF,throw it right in front of them,use contaminate for a massive speed boost and if they manage to get to you again,just pop up ghost and exhaust on a more powerful enemy that is in pursuit.
-How to chase with Trundle
if you start chasing an with Trunde there is no need to use Exhaust right away.Use PoF and put it in front of an enemy and then Contaminate in center of PoF(this is a lot easier to pull of on S Rift} and Exhaust if needed.If an enemy has flash or if the enemy is Kassadin just use ghost.
In order to do this you must have all cooldowns ready.If you don`t think of another strategy or just try a short version of the one i have given you(without Exhaust and Ghost)

Pros / Cons

-Good early game
-Best jungler in LoL{along with Warwick} but i don`t play him that way
-Not a bad farming
-Nightmare for tanks and probably casters
-Awesome ganker
-Amazing chasing and escaping ability
-It seems that PoF has only one use it would be nice if it had the same function as ignite but lower damage and duration
-Focused by DPS because of Q skill
-Not so good in battle with stealt champions

Ranked Play

Trundle is good in ranked too.He deals a lot of damage,lot of hp and can be amazing supporter.He is never baned so you can play him as much as you want.

Guide Top

Team Work

Good in teamfights and ganking.Target tanks with ulti and DPS`s with Q ability.Very Simple!Trundle can be a major supporter while geting kills.If you see an ally in trouble and trying to escape just use your PoF and make their escape easy.

Guide Top



Trundle works great with Akali.Trundle steals damage or armor from an enemy,slows them and Akali rushes for the kill.


Anivia goes well with pretty much anyone but she and Trundle make a good team because of her stun and wall wich helps him land his abilities like PoF and Contaminate.


Singed is a born supporter and like Anivia goes well with many champs.He pairs well with Trundle because of his Fling and slow wich makes an escape for an enemy impossible

Guide Top


Farming is good!Nice crit. you can buff yourself with Q and contaminate.
