About me
Hello! I'm Saccharine and I play on the North American servers, I starting playing league in season 10 and didn't get any where in ranked but I have gotten a very good grasp on the item system and I'm very good at itemization (Hence why I'm obsessed with Manamune)

I'm currently Silver 2 at the time of writing this but I hope that doesn't make you leave my guides. I am always trying to improve my gameplay and help others.
Me and Tristana
Tristana was one of my first champions I picked up, I currently have 200k mastery score on her and have gotten very good at her and limit testing with her.
The Pro's and Con's of Tristana
Tristana Info
Lets begin with her abilities.

Passive: Nothing too cool here other than you will be able to auto very far.

Q: There is no real tech here other than you can replace your AS Boots for either Armor or Magic resist because of how much AS you get from max level.

W: You can cast every ability while mid jump.
If you need a jump reset you can kill a clone for the reset.

E: It casts faster depending on your attack speed, it's smart to cast Q before sending out your E.
Don't forget to use E on turrets.

R: As long as Tristana doesn't move/change targets you will automatically auto attack the target you are R'ing.
If you R on the third charge of E your bomb will explode when your target stops moving from displacement.

Things to keep in mind as Tristana

Pre first item you really need to rely off your E to do that damage.
Both W & R will apply a stack of your bomb, make sure to E before landing on your enemy.
Your biggest counter is not having a disengage, always make sure to get a reset on your W.
What runes do I take and what situation?

If you are new to Tristana you should take Hail of Blades; Its the safest option. Once you get a good feel for Tristana you should experiment with Press the Attack

If you have a heavy dive support (Leona, Pantheon, Nautilus, Rakan Alistar) you should take Hail of blades.

At the same time if you still have heavy dive supports you can still take Press the Attack if you need it for late game or your going against a heavy tank comp.

There's not much to say about runes, really it comes down to preference I've noticed.
Thank you for reading my guide! I hope this can help you get into Tristana an get mastery with her! I will be sure to update the build when a new Tristana build or new meta build gets found. Will also be sure to make a completely updated guide once season 12 releases.

Please let me know if there's anything I missed or if there's anything improvements I can make in the comments.

My Twitch I don't stream as much right now but I will be getting back into it soon with Tristana gameplay
My Other Guides At the moment I only have a Manamune Volibear Guide but expect more Manamune builds soon!
