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.
TRISTANA THE ANTI-TANK
If you are looking for a guide to get rid of tanks such as Galio, Amumu or Rammus, you are on the right place.
Pros from this build:
-Extreme Speed to destroy towers
-Can destroy High Armored champs as if they where tin trash
-Squishy Champs with no def die in few secs
-Can jungle, dragon or Baron (with 1 mate) super fast.
-Survivability depends on your awareness and escaping skills
-Vulnerable to nukers
-Youmuu's Blade (starting with Brutalizer)
-Finishing Madred's Bloodrazor
-Phage (HP and slow)
-Infinity Edge (if needed lots of dmg)
-Frozen Mallet or Starks Fervor
-Elixir of Agility (A MUST IF YOU GOT BARON)
Skill Build and some tips
Start with jump (W)in order to get a scape ability or a good slow for getting the First Blood. Then maximize Explosive Shot (E) wich will be our main ability on early game.
Early game will consist mainly on maximizing your gold by slaying minions. Try to spam E as much as you can on your enemy and try to kill minions wich are next to them in order to harass him.
We will be getting Q when we start hitting enemy tower (mainly at lvl 5 or 7). Try not to use this skill to kill minions or push lane, there is no need to waste mana like that. Try to save it to figh champs or towers.
Get R every time you can. In order to kill champs on your lane try using W, E, Q (hit, hit, hit) and then R when you believe "Explosive Shot poison" can finish the work. Always END 1vs1 battles with tristana by using R. (care when using jump on melee champs, save it to escape or for chasing if he tries to scape).
Summoner Skills (choose according enemy champs if ranked)
-Exhaust: ideal for chasing enemys and for escaping. On team battles try to use it on enemys DPS like Twitch, Ashe, Master Yi, etc.
-Cleanse: Great for fighting against stunners. It also permits you to jump safe anytime. It also removes BLIND, our worst enemy xD.
-Teleport: if you are a sight ward fan, get it to teleport to jungle to gank Junglers. If you are soloing (wich is highly recommended) it saves you lots of time (exp and gold) when you shop.
-Ghost: my build does not have good movement speed. But I believe that Lizard buff or Frozen Mallet are enough to chase enemies. Youmuus ghostblade can also help a lot to chase enemies with its active ability.
Some tips and recomendations:
-Try to use rocket jump cooldown reset (when kill) as much as you can. You can tower dive with jump, use ulti and jump away if you enemy is on low HP.
-Check your mana! Do not waste mana on your ulti if you can kill without it. Save mana for jump if there are mias.
-Use Q and Youmuus ghostblade to destroy towers.
-Use ulti to save mates! Use it on galio if he is channeling or on chasing enemies like Xin or Yi.
-Tristana can "tank" a tower if she hits minions instead of tower (not recommended)
-Towers do not give lifesteal.
-Heal yourself with neutral minions such as golem, dragon, lizard.
-Lifesteal applies on Madreds 500dmg to minions. With 12% LS you will get about 60hp with that single hit. (About 10% of your HP at low lvl)
Plz comment in order to help me getting a better build.
