Tryndamere, the Barbarian King

Welcome, this is my first Mobafire guide. Tryndamere is one of my favorite champions to play, and he is very fun especially if you use the correct build and are fed. My build here will teach you how and when to get items, skill sequences, masteries, runes, and more!

A Couple of Notes

Tryndamere can be played both Ability Power (AP) and Attack Damage (AD). Either way, he is very powerful if played correctly and through teamwork in the team. This guide will teach you AP Tryndamere, not AD Tryndamere.

There are those who choose not to live in one of the great city-states of Valoran. Instead, they live in remote locales, often as part of a nomad or barbarian tribe. While perils abound in these untamed lands, there is also great freedom in being removed from the politics of Valoran. Tryndamere was born a member of one of these barbarian tribes in northern Valoran. Even as a young boy, it was obvious that he would grow in martial prowess to become one of his clan's greatest warriors. However, as his clan moved south between the Howling Marsh and the Ironspike Mountains, they came across strangers in black garb, brandishing symbols of a beast's skull. Despite Tryndamere's pleas, his elder went out to speak with the strangers; they cut him down mercilessly. From there, they began to slaughter every man, woman, and child in the clan. Tryndamere, the sole survivor, hid under the bodies of his dead parents. Upon their bloodied corpses, he swore eternal vengeance on those who took his people from him - the assassins of Noxus.

To train himself, Tryndamere voluntarily served under all the great chieftains of the barbarian tribes, learning the ways of the barbarian warrior. Not only did this make him the man he needed to become in order to exact his revenge, it has also garnered him friends and allies among the most powerful barbarian leaders of Valoran. This recently allowed him to unite the barbarians into a single, powerful force - all under his command. Now he has joined the League of Legends to earn enough influence to find a permanent home for his people... and to slake his rage on the champions of his hated foes.

''The next true power will come from the far north, and it will involve Tryndamere - one way or another.''
-- Graccus Mightstone, League Senior Political Scholar.

Pros / Cons


+ With AP Trynd, you can regenerate over 400 health with your Q, even without Fury!
+ Your E will be very powerful!
+ You will also be getting CDR items, these will make you use your abilities much faster.
+ AP Tryndamere will be quite hard to kill, because of your Q and your ultimate if it's ready.
+ Enemies can't really use Thornmail against you (Tryndamere), because you're AP.


- Ultimate may be hard to time, and things like poison or ignite can kill you after the buff ends.
- You may not have a good time if you lose your lane early game.
- Your builds can go wrong if you don't have enough farm or gold
