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.
Introduction (READ THIS)
This page is more of a build, than a guide, and I wont go over the basics of Tryndamere. TBH I don't want to, so if you are a beginner, go check out some other guides before reading mine :)
Do not rate my build without trying it. If you do, I will downvote yours without trying too.
Pros / Cons (of this guide)
- Very strong lategame.
- Very good escape.
- HIGH Sustain.
- 100% critical strike chance.
- Enemy target.
- Weak against ranged champions early game.
- Kill/ assist dependent guide (you simply wont afford these items "fast enough").
My summoners spells are fairly easy to understand:
I really cant see any point not taking flash. If there is one spell that saves a champions life, its flash. And having the option to be able to go trough 2 walls, should make you VERY hard to get down.
Ghost is a REALLY good alternative, and I'm considering switching to it.
Now the next spell isn't used much on Tryndamere. And some people may scratch their heads, wondering if there really is any point having this, AND Quicksilver Sash. And my answer is YES, it absolutely is.
Quicksilver Sash is a item that people usually wont purchase early game, and they shouldn't. Tryndamere lacks too much to have to buy this item early, and by the time he buys it, he may already be shut down.
Another reason for having the option to remove debuffs twice, is it gives you a pretty decent chance to actually take a place in team fights, and not just get shut down (stunned) and die.
Therefor, my next item is BF Sword, giving me a pretty decent AD.
Another reason why this item is well needed, is the magic resist, which makes Tryndamere somewhat less squishy, and less vulnerable to Thornmail.
Anyway, because this is a fairly aggressive build, I don't see any better option than to give Tryndamere REALLY high lifesteal, stacked with amazing AD.
When you have stacked 42 creeps, you will end up with 50% lifesteal, AND 80(+120) more AD.
Why people get The Black Cleaver, I don't know. It may be for the attack damage, but that's just stupid, when infinity edge deals 10 times more damage. It can also be for the utility (armor reduction), but then again, that's not a job for the carry. You also have to auto attack 3 times before it get its full effect, which is rubbish.
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.
