Threats & Synergies
rare top, no comments, i dodge this match up.
his Q and R counter trynds damage, his slow and knock back allows him to chase you down. you dont win at all, unless he allows you to.
I find this match up very annoying early game, you wont have the attack speed to auto attack her when she reveals from shroud. This should be a farm lane, and wait for gank. focus on stocking up gold for that late game. dodge her Qs when you go to farm that way she cant poke you out of lane.
Dodge his throwing star things, you cant cheese him level 1, maybe 2. but after that, you need a jungler. his cc and kiting potential is too much.
Jayce is hard due to his movement speed and his movement speed reduction for trynd. as well as burst dmg.. Save your spin to get back on him after he knocks you away, and just beat him up.
Lane bully, if you dont kill him level 1-2 its pretty hard to kill him. i play this lane passive until he is out of mana, then all in, or wait for jungle. dont let his passive beat you
YOu should never even try to kill him, if you do, you are playing it wrong. just dodge his stuns and rockets, and farm what you can.
His passive movement speed and gap closer makes it hard to score a kill. dodge his boomerang, and dont let him auto 3 times for his passive. Cutlass and Boots are a good rush if you are trying to kill him. dont fight him mega gnar unless you are ahead.
A good fiora can make you cancel autos when she Qs, unless you get some early attack speed. just reset the vitals if they are easy for her to reach, dodge her parry that way you dont get attack speed reduction. and if she ults you, stand against the wall that way she cant hit 4th vital... late game she pretty much wins unless you are ahead at the time.
poke heavy lane. dodge her blind, E after her E and you can kill her, if not, then you need to pull off and try again. go tiamat here to push the wave fast to where she cant afford to roam.
SHen can out trade you easily. dodge his taunt, dont trade with him after he uses Q due to his passive empowered autos, and his W blocking your autos. skill match up but a little in his favor.. rush tiamat here to shove him in to prevent shen ults.
Good riven will cancel your autos and your spin. so, best time to go in is after he 3rd Q and or her W Stun.
He wins pre 4, dont fight him. after 4 you can 1v1 him. get a tiamat early for him to break his passive on CD.
Try to get the farm you can, Q heal on cool down when he is abusing you under tower. wait for gank. you can kill him level 1 and 2 in a all in.
you win level 1 and 2. after that, watch his fury bar, dont trade with him when he has it half or more. hard match up. play it patiently and dont let him cheese you with his early game damage
He is harder as it goes on. i think pre 4 you beat him, if you dodge his bellow breath passive. if not, just run back and try again. after 4 until about 12 he beats you, then you out scale.
Tough match up due to her kiting potential. early Tier 2 boots counters that. once you get boots, dodge her E Stun, 90% of the time after they miss a stun a camille will turn her back, so hit her with a W and you can spin infront of her to dodge her W slow. pretty much easy game after that.
try to get him to use his Q charge on a minion, then start trading. he should W and spin. at that point you can spin out. and then bait him into using his Next q asap that way you can all in him when he has no W or spin dmg. dont miss ult due to his ult
Pretty easy, short trades with darius. walk up, auto, auto animation cancel with spin to disengage. until you want to all in. if you all in, besure to save your spin and flash if you have it to stay or get inside of his Q. He doesnt land a Q on you, you win easy. dont miss ult due to his ult
tough matchup if you are being lazy. Dodge her Qs and most especially her Es, and dont stand in her ult due to spell vamp.
Chogath match up, Dodge his knock up, and dont let his empowered autos hit you while he is farming wave. if you want to all in spin behind him after he uses knock up. and orb walk back to his tower so he has to use next knock up on you IN FRONT of him, and he wont get out of melee range before you can move again(if you dont dodge) dont miss ult due to his nom. i prefer to abuse him harshly after he ults a minion.
when he uses counter strike, you can walk into him and spin out to get the spin dmg off, dont step up if you dont have spin and he has counter strike.
Kled to me is a pretty decent match up, dodge his hook, and all in or trade him after he uses his W passive.
i put it as even, because ive had time where i stomp poppy, and times where poppy stomps me. skill match up in my opinion. dont let her pin you into wall. dodge her Qs on the ground. try to get her to waste passive auto on minion.
Dodge his rockets, dont stand in fire trying to farm. and try to dodge his ult with spin as soon as it starts coming down. skill match up
dont chase him, just let him farm. you are more scary free farming than he is.
Dodge his slows and his stuns. dont trade with him while his explosive shield it up
skill match up, if he holds his R and W correctly.. basically just abuse him early. dont let him scare you away with his burst. he just has burst after that, you have a window to do some damage.
Dodge his passive shots and dodge his Dash/flip.. dodge his thing he shoots down, and ult his ult.
just dodge his E that he throws out, and save spin for his W and you should beat him
Changing her, so idk yet. just dont let her stun you. and gg.
People say he counters you, not really. he just doesnt really die to you. he cant kill you. you can Q heal his poke and, you can step back when he does his pouty ground slam thing. that way you dont get attack speed reduced. at that point you can all in him
you can take ignite and just beat him up all lane by igniting on his ult, or just take Tp and farm. dodge his cleavers.
dodge q, watch bushes he throws his Es into. and you can take ignite to stop his healing when all inning him.
pretty easy, He pops R, run away. he Withers you, just kite back until over with and then you can beat him in a all in
easy lane, just spin on him when his empowered Q is down
I have had no troubles with the new aatrox, as long as you dodge his Qs and his W. you win auto trades... Try to makke him use passive auto on minion before trading. i spin on him everytime his final 3rd Q goes down.
easy, dodge his q AND e and just kill him after he uses E.
Champion Build Guide
Conqueror is just too good right now until its removed.
Triumph will save you on ignites, brand passive, liandry burns, early fight and minion aggro after getting your kill.
Attack speed 100%, do not waste time and stats with tenacity on tryndamere, you are one dimensional, and there is way too much CC in the game for tenacity to really be relevant on him.
Last stand, works well with your passive.
Resolve 100% of the time because Trynd vs New/Meta picks top just hurts and is too hard without resolve, it makes your lane phase a lot easier, as well as providing Demolish for late game splitting.
Attack speed, Adaptive force. always. as far as last one, go armor into ad and MR into AP. i like going the health vs tanks that dont have AP poke.
Cull - I never used to use this item until i started playing more Riven, vs tank match ups, same ordeal, if someone is playing super passive, and refuses to fight or trade, i will grab a cull and focus fully on a farming and a TP play.
if i have the 1300 Gold, i will go Zeal vs Non Tanky Champions, and i will go B.F. sword vs tanky/bruiser champions.
Serker Greaves - mobility early, PLUS the attack speed from them is just too noticeable to pass up, great duel item and great item to dodge skill shots and cancel peoples autos with.
Vamp scepter - i will get if its all i can afford. also, if im taking short trades, or, i am against a ranged vs melee match up to help me sustain.
Tiamat - i use against Pantheon or Shen to shove them in to stop global ults. Also this is a fantastic first back item vs a Yasuo, it works very well with the cleave on auto attacks vs minions to drop his passive shield. This is also good after cull to shove in passive laners quickly to roam and hope to make a play mid or in the jungle. push and roam boys, dont stand still in lane.
Zeal will go to Shiv, notice tiamat is gone, when i build tiamat, i usually sell it around my 3rd - 4th item to complete something i need. I prefer shiv, small wave clear (can be balanced with spin dmg), AND a big POP on that first crit, great for dueling. and amazing for quickly eliminating a ap or ad carry.
Gun Blade i prefer over bork for the active. not only the active, but the revolver, Spin(e), and shiv. is pretty nasty burst. and it scales well with the AP in this build
Essence reaver is for CDR, 20%, and the Passive. Okay, when you ult on tryndamere, you are at your strongest point.. Remember season 8, AP Wizardmere, just SPIN SPIN SPIN. Once you are at 40% CDR with Essence reaver and the scaling AP in this build, your spin is on basically 0 CD SPIN SPIN SPIN WIN mode again. =)
Nashors tooth/Black Cleaver... the way i decide between these two, is, Tank team or squishy team, and if i need to be a meat shield longer in fights. Cleaver for tans/meat shield trynd.. nashors for hyper carry.
then of course IE last. UNLESS i some how stay out in the rift long enough to some how pinch the gold to buy it straight out on a back.
