Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to my 1st guide Tristana: best DPS
Draw a Bead
Increases Range as you level.
Be careful Early game cause most other ranged champs out range you, play very defensive until level 6.
Percentage attack speed increase, for 7 seconds.
Great for knocking down turrets while no one is paying attention.
And beating the **** out of anything that gets too close to you (or chooses to run).
Trist flies to target direction causing AP damage and slow on what ever she lands on.
Never use this offensively unless u r absolutely sure no one will be ganking you.
It's crazy in combination with your ulti, but really risky to use.
Can also be used in close combat, but REALLY ONLY if u r sure u won't regret having used up your rocketjump.
Active: alittle AP damage over time, reduces healing by 50%.
Passive: stuff blows up that you kill.
Crazy for farming, and reduces healing effects by 50%. Be sure to hit those jerks that pop a health potion or that have crazy life steal.
Real good AP damage, and knocks opponents and everything in the trajectory flying.
Great for early level 6 kills.
And great to keep people alive with, including yourself.
In my opinion, two summoner abilities,that benefit Tristana the most, are Ignite and Exhaust.
Exhaust, combined with Cripple, not only neutralizes physical attacks of your enemy, but reduces their armor and magic resist for the duration.
Ignite reduces healing and deals true damage over time, tough it can be absorbed(*). This summoner ability, i will dare say,scales with Explo shot.
Runes and Masteries:
3xGreater Quintessence of Desolation
9xGreater Mark of Desolation
Both adding armor penetration, which you just cant enough of.
9xGreater Glyph of Furor
9xGreater Seal of Furor
Both adding additional critical strike damage, which will help alot on your damage output thoughout the entire game.
Advised mastery build - 21/0/9 :
21/0/0 is basic so remaining 9 mastery points can be spent wherever.
Utility tree, Awareness 4/4 gives you an edge over your opponents early in game and mid game.
To pick a lane
Mid lane is for Tristana.
Further assumptions and discussions will be made on axiom that you, Tristana, are in middle lane, unless explicitly said differently.
