Tristana DOMINATION - Easy Freelo With Minecraft Cannons

How to play Tristana
Hello! And Welcome to my guide to playing Tristana in the Bot Lane. Tristana is a good flex pick into also the Mid and sometimes Top Lane, but you will usually see her in the Bot Lane! Don't worry about her damage -- she's got loads of those. With an almost useless passive in the Early Game, but an insane passive in the MidGame, and a okay passive in the Late Game (Senna matches her), she is very clearly a MidGame oriented champion. Let's talk about her abilities and passive.
Draw a Bead:
Increases Tristana's attack range by 8 every time she levels. At level 18, Tristana has 136 bonus range on her autoattacks (661 total range). This is a very good ability that can gives her 661 total range. Let's check Caitlyn, the highest base range ADC at lvl 1 for some stat checks. It's 650.So, you know this is actually fantastic because you are a mini Caitlyn!. What's her range at lvl 11 you ask? Let's do some math. it's 8 times 11 so that's 88 + 525 equals 613 Range! Pretty good for a champion that nuke someone out from just one combo!
Let's check her E Explosive Charge:
Passive: Enemies explode when slain by Tristana's basic attacks, dealing 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+25% of ability power) magic damage to nearby enemies.
Active: Tristana throws a grenade charge on a target enemy or enemy turret. After 4 seconds, the charge explodes and deals 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 (+ 0.5 / 0.75 / 1.0 / 1.25 / 1.5 per bonus attack damage) (+50% of ability power) physical damage in an area. The explosion radius is increased when used on a turret.

Every basic attack, Rocket Jump or Buster Shot against a target with Explosive Charge adds an additional stack that increases Explosive Charge's final explosion damage by +30%, stacking up to 4 times (+120% damage). The Explosive Charge will detonate immediately upon reaching maximum stacks.

If Buster Shot is used to apply the last stack, the detonation will instead be delayed until the end of the knock back or the 4 seconds expire
This is one of her best abilties, if not her best ability because she can get stacks off her auto attacks, q and w. And it goes up 4 stacks which is just 4 auto attacks. That last sentence is pretty interesting. Fullying stacking off Q is delayed? The more you know. This means that you can do a full combo with Ult proccing that E, so you would get max burst damage. This is also good to know when trading with Q>E, make sure to run away after you get 4 autoattacks in, because it takes all of that time to proc the damage.

These are the two most important abilities you gotta know when you are playing Tristana.

Tristana does a lot of damage, primarily because of her E. Which essentially means she is going to need at least 4 auto attacks / 3 auto attacks and W in order to get the MAX damage off of her combo. Let's do some math. So The E ONLY scales off of her ability power, which is SUPER interesting because it means you ONLY need attack speed, not attack damage for that spicy E damage. Oh sorry, sorry. Wrong numbers. It's actually the more you upgrade E, the MORE you scale off of attack damage. This means that building AD scales with LEVELS. Attack Speed is ideal in the early game, but Attack Damage is ideal in the LATE game. Very interesting stuff. With 1.5 AD scaling, and let's say, 330 attack damage on a late game ADC -- you are hitting very hard. That's right. You can easily double that base damage with E. Tl;dr, attack speed is good on Tristana, but with Attack Damage you can easily do more than the base damage of your E -- but it takes too long to scale to be relevant to most games. One of Tristana's hardest issues is when she gets ganked. Zac, for example can just knock her up forever and deal loads of magic damage. Alistar, too can interrupt her jump. Xin Zhao can jump to her WHILE she is in W, Zed can get to her while in W, Braum can proc a stack while in W, Fiddlesticks can fear while in W, Caitlyn can use E on her while in W, and so many other champions can deal damage to her while in W, making her W one of the most versatile, but also least versatile abilities in the entire game.
Let's check that W:
Rocket Jump: (
Tristana fires at the ground to propel herself to target location, dealing 95 / 145 / 185 / 245 / 295 (+50% of ability power) magic damage and slowing surrounding units by 60% for 1 / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 / 3 seconds when she lands.

Rocket Jump's cooldown resets on kill or assist or whenever Explosive Charge detonates at maximum stacks on champions.
What an amazing ability. The main takeaway, is that as long as you stack up Explosive Charge you get a reset on Rocket Jump. Also, she get's a brief slow, which is nice for the CC. You can jump in, fully stack up Explosive Charge and then jump away. Pretty spicy stuff.
Tristana adc is not only good for versatile mid game pushes - she has the ability to continuously attack a target as long as she's in range. Of course, her ability to function as a Lucian in close range and a Caitlyn in long range has it's drawbacks -- she has to choose her range before engaging and initiating a fight. Tristana's W and R can be used both defensively and offensively, with low gold she is pretty useless. You almost always play Tristana to scale into the MidGame well, as I said before she does terrible in the Early and Late Game. of tristanaplayers:
The best.
Exhaust HoB Tristana that plays Kai'sa.
Defensive Tristana builder that also likes to go a lot of damage.
