Champion Build Guide
I am "Trundle BEAST", a NA Trundle OTP since season 11, currently ranked Platinum IV.
I play league since season 3, and have mained Evelynn in season 3 and 4, then Warwick until season 11. I have been Platinum since season 4, on OCE, EUW, and NA servers. I aim to reach Diamond this season.
I like to think a lot about my runes and items, rather than just copying what other players do.
After many games, (about 500 ranked this season), this is the runes/items I came up with. I am ranked #3813 world and #412 Trundle NA on leagueofgraph, among the top 2% Trundle players.
I completely understand why the common build is tank boots, divine sunderer, tank, with PTA keystone. However, IMO, trinity is better. It does (much) more damage to squishy targets, turrets, and clear monster/cs faster. + the mythic passive is much better.
My build scales much better. You become a late game beast. You get enough resistances when ulting enemy tank anyway, when you need resistances. You're still very tanky without your ult.
I do build DS, tank boots, BORK into full tank when enemy has 3 or 4 huge tanks. But that almost never happen in season 11.
Similarly, a build that does more DPS and gives more mobility will have this effect, you'll clear camp faster, gain gold/exp faster, have more opportunities to gank or do an objective.
This is why lucidity boots are strong. Also, if you kill you enemy faster, you don't need to tank his damage. Trinity Force gives you AS, AD, AH, MS. Titanic gives you AOE damage on aa, scaling great with trinity AS and W AS.
Sometimes, you can backdoor, you should be able to 1v2 under enemy turret with challening smite + your ult, except strong 1v1 champs.
Why not enhancing this? Trinity force procs on turret, it does much more turret damage than DS. Titanic also proc on turrets, and allow you to clear waves in seconds.
With these 2 items, you can splitpush and backdoor very efficiently.
In some situations, add Hullbreaker to this, and you can 1v2 enemy team under their turret + destroy 3 turrets, inhib and nexus in 1 minute.
