DGK Who is DenGyldneKage? DenGyldneKage is a ALL LANE PLAYER: Hello, I am the creator of all these guides, i'm danish therefor my english could be read wrong in some cases, but I believe you understand 99% of my sentences. I make guides because I think it's cool to bring some awesome guides out there with a pretty good build! This introduction text will appear on all of my guides, because I believe it's alright to let people who decide to read your guides instead of just looking at what to build as first items etc, get's to know who's making the guides and who's also got impact on my guides.

DGK Who is Kurtdenstore21? Kurtdenstore21 is a TOPLANER: He is a danish player, who got to Challenger playing only Tryndamere which would make him a so called "OTP/One Trick Pony", and also one of my best friends IRL. Not only being one of my best friends IRL, he's also a phenomenal Tryndamere player, and I believe him to be in TOP 3 as Trynd in the world. That would also make my guides build a bit more stable in terms of it being good. Kurt is always trying to find new builds that works even better, so stay tuned for secret builds! He test his builds in Master ELO.

DGK Who is Godbro? Godbro is a MIDLANER: He is a danish player, The guy who's the reason that "Nidalee too tanky" meme came to life through xPeke by juking(Dodge) the abilities of his Xerath."Too Tanky" he's also a guy who got 4 Challenger Jackets because he had 4 accounts in TOP 10 EUW at the same time, that also means he knows something about the game, and some of my guides are based off his build that works with him. I don't believe you could go wrong with using his build, his builds are just different to most, which could make it harder for some to use.

DGK Who is styllEE? styllEE is a JUNGLER: He is a danish player, who's considered a "OTP/One Trick Pony" Ivern, since most Challengers call him the best Ivern player in the world. But he can still get 25/1 in Dia2 as Kha'Zix. As of Season 8 he currently got 2 Challenger accounts where one of them is at 800+ LP ATM. He know's his jungle really well, and being able to play Ivern on that scale is also a really great feat in terms of using your brain in League of Legends, he got impact on my Ivern guide, so you can't go wrong there either. | Ivern is a champ where you need 110% brain.


If you do like my guide and it helped you, feel free to give it a upvote, that also helps me and my guide in the ladder system! I will do my best to make great builds on Mobafire, which is a site people tend to see as a joke.


If you think something should be added to the guide, then feel free to come up with suggestions, but I do not respons to commands like "Add [???] otherwise your build is weird" or similar. But I do take note of suggestions!


I realized making guides, people tend to want to attack your guide if you don't use a build they don't like. Simply proceed to move on if you don't like my build. Nothing is wrong if it's obviously not a troll guide. Like it or leave it!

"Rage is my weapon" ~Tryndamere

Fueled by unbridled fury and rage, Tryndamere once carved his way through the Freljord, openly challenging the greatest warriors of the north to prepare himself for even darker days ahead. The wrathful barbarian has long sought revenge for the annihilation of his clan, though more recently he has found companionship with Ashe, the Avarosan warmother, and a home with her people. His almost inhuman strength and fortitude is legendary, and has delivered him and his new allies countless victories against the greatest of odds.

+ Lategame Scale
+ High Damage
+ Strong Ultimate
+ Great Waveclear
+ Nice Sustain
+ Best Splitpush
+ Strongest 1v1
+ Escape&Mobility

You have a strong early, as to why people would fear Tryndamere. Your ultimate is the ultimate, ultimate. It can bring fear to most people, but it has it's flaws, dont overrestimate it, but "OP" nonetheless. Your waveclear is perfect. Great sustain with Q. Nice splitpush with your builds on Tryndamere+Ulti, and combined with being able to 1v1 most people as a good Trynd player, splitpushing is a dream. Use that E to escape from people, that's where you have high mobility. It's all ESSENCE REAVER.

- Ultimate Reliant
- Squishy
- Falling Behind IS BAD 8.11
- Easy to counter
- Needs a team
- Meelee
- Flash
- Ranged Champs

The thing about Tryndamere, even though he is strong, he is at the same time bad, if played bad. You play Tryndamere wrong, you remain useless squishy and a problem for the team. If you fall behind, it might be difficult to get back into the game. It's easy to counter Tryndamere. Even though Tryndamere is splitpush boss, he also needs a decent team. You are melee against ranged most of the time, that's a major cons. If the enemy flashes away, and you wasted flash > RIP.

Reworks of Items etc makes it hard to do anything! Since we have to get some more knowledge on what to say~ coming from the top trynda players as well


The thing we know about Infinity Edge, or in it's shortcut "IE". Is that it's a must item on Tryndamere. You can't really see a Tryndamere without Infinity Edge, but why not IE first then? Because we want mobility. One thing that makes Trynda so strong, is that mobility. Don't underrestimate it's power. As of 8.11 they reworked how Essence Reaver works, and that makes us move away from it, it could still be potential good, but going Death's Dance is a thing that works better these days. Sustain+DMG is a good combination as well as getting 10% CDR.

Flash: Flash is the most important thing for Tryndamere. You won't get far without Tryndamere and Flash. He is well known for his E+Flash combo, it's an absolute MUST, NO GHOST. Ghost can't be on Tryndmamere.

Ignite: Ignite is also one of the great wonders. It benefits Tryndamere in all kinds of matchups, all kinds of plays. With Ignite, you will be assured that kill you want. BUT GHOST IS ALSO REALLY GOOD, WILL TELL U WHY LATER

Teleport: Meanwhile 90% of Tryndamere go toplane with Ignite+TP, this is not a bad pick, but it's a different Tryndamere playstyle. A style where you might snowball around or help your team. BoxerPete takes TP.
You may wonder why I don't have Grasp of the Undying, around. And all other kinds of Tryndamere. That's because there is no better Tryndamere in Toplane than Conqueror with Resolve atm. It's basically just the best out there and there is no need to use stuff like Phase, Electrocute and so on. In jungle I swap Resolve out with Sorcery to get the CDR, and because > You only really need Resolve to sustain in lane.[/color]
With the Statikk Shiv nerf, I don't think it's worth it anymore, compared to how much more Phantom Dancer gives you. So that's basically why we have gone back to Phantom Dancer. The picture shown above is for Patch 8.6. If it changes, I will also update this.With the Ignite being buffed, which was a surprise since you already destroy the enemy with Ignite trades, you can't be more than happy enough for the Ignite buff. This buff basically makes us 10% stronger, and gives us a even better reason for taking Ignite top. Break the META.

With the Rageblade being changed, it's also one hell of a beast item right now. You can basically buy it as a second item and you will demolish anyone in a 1v1. Obviously League is not about 1v1, so watch out if the enemy decides to fight you randomly. They WONT beat you when you have Rageblade. You can reach 500+ AD with Rageblade. Pefect last item for Tryndamere as of now.

This is the big news for Tryndamere, and how we now deal with Tanks. With this rune I have been able to fight against Malphite, Vi, Shen & so on. A must for Tryndamere and his kind.
  • Battle Fury: This passive is so important and why people fear Tryndamere. You will get Fury from AA' minions or champions, and to win those 1v1s you always want 100 Fury before you fight. It's your critt & health.
  • Bloodlust (Q): Q the sustain that Tryndamere needs in lane against champions like Quinn, Gnar & so on. If you didn't have Q, I would probably main Tryndamere. Get that Fury up, and get that 200+ HP back, as well as you deal more DMG with less HP. A really important Ability for Tryndamere.
  • Mocking Shout (W): This is like the last thing that people would want on a champ, because it's useless. Hell no, it's a CC that get's Tryndamere those easy kills that he wants. When you use the (W) then you also weaken your enemy, so you can win unexpected fights with your W+E Combo.
  • Spinning Slash (E): So this is basically your Escape and your cheese kills. This is a second basic attack when you're fighting someone at low HP. And also the wonders of Tryndamere, you can basically outplay and escape any kind of situation if used right.
  • Undying Rage (R): Some people say that, Tryndamere only needs to click (R), and then he wins. That's not exactly true, CC and Flash will destroy you, but don't underrestimate it's power. Being unkillable, while dashing extreme DMG is what makes people cry. But don't forget to use it!
> > >
We want to max out Bloodlust because it is our dmg and sustain source in one. Then Spinning Slash as it allows you to stay mobile and stick to the enemy. We level up Undying Rage last as the first level makes you undying for 5 seconds which it also does at level 3, and that's why we basically upgrade our Ultimate so as the last one, because the only upgrade effects it got is, that you might lower the cooldown. So with E as the first upgrade, we can trade with the enemy in toplane as we still get that 35% of Critt Chance, and if they do decide to run with little HP left, then please do E+Flash Combo into them or simply E+Critt. That's the secrets of Tryndameres firstblood. It lies in his ability to stick to the enemy while critical striking him as well, your does not critical strike, but that's fine.


Berserker's Greaves > ATTACK SPEED
This is a really good item on Tryndamere as it gives you movementspeed & atk speed, which is a combination of goodness on Tryndamere, and you can basically buy it as a second item, it gives you a better roaming/trading time. It's also the cheapest attack speed item in the game. In Season Two, it was custom to buy this item on first recall, or as soon as possible. In Season Three, upgraded boots are not as necessary, so it is acceptable to delay this purchase. Even though we got daggers it's still a finished ATK Speed item.

Ninja Tabi > ARMOR
There are games when you meet a whole team full of AD AA players. That's when you use these, otherwise you will use greaves forever.

If you have a Zilean on your team, you wanna make sure he is a "God" Zilean or at least a Zilean with hidden Tryndamere OTP days, if no, then don't count on him casting a ultimate on you. Keep this in mind, you play alone with your ultimate, and don't rely on teammates.

Veigar is a pretty nasty enemy you could meet too. He got a good zoning with his E, that keeps you away if you don't have Quicksilver Sash, and I don't buy that Item very often, and if Veigar is fed, he might get you by surprise with Ultimate or W and you die.

The possibly worst enemy you could face playing Tryndamere, would be Tahm Kench. Tahm Kench can and will beat your Tryndamere, wether you have played Tryndamere for 3.500.000 Mastery Points or not. Don't underrestimate him, and CS up or get some help from jungle.

If you want to climb or get better at league, you need some understanding of the game and how to be a better play as well, macros and what not also plays a role, but keeping these small notes in mind, is also a great thing, since it WILL help you with the game, no matter how you think about it.
