Welcome to my guide: Udyr the animal burster. You may be thinking "Why should i use this build instead of a more popular build with tank items.
The answer is very don't want to play Udyr like a tank. This build focuses on Udyr's huge damage output, burst or dps.
Ussually Udyr specialises on split pushing or teamfights. With this build we will be doing other things, like taking dragons, invading and looking for picks around the map before a teamfight.

Pros and Cons:

-very good ganker
-strong dueling potential
-fast clears
-strong splitpusher
-insane burst(only for this build)

-item reliant
-not so tanky(for this build)
-doesn't deal to much damage until Tri-Force

Stalker's Blade: Udyr deals damage only with his basic attacks so he must stay close to his target. This item helps him go in basic attack range.
Enchantment: Bloodrazor: Udyr mainly uses his basic attacks to do damage. The passive is on-hit and also helps against tanks. The attack speed part is very nice too since we have Titanic Hydra.
Trinity-Force: Udyr's Q enhances his next basic attack, sheen does the same thing. The Rage passive helps him to stick to targets.
Titanic Hydra: The active really improves your burst and the stats help you a lot with the pushing.
The Bloodthirster: this item amplifies a lot your burst damage and makes you more durable.
Warmog's Armor: this item makes tankier and heals you a lot. The regen is usefull before Teamfights if you are low health, because you can't leave.
Mercury's Treads: these boots make you non-burstable by their mages and helps you deal with CC wich is Udyr's worst enemy.

But on a more serious note, don't buy it. It was good, but no more, no more.
This item is still very good on pheonix Udyr, but on tiger Udyr the only thing that deals magical damage is the item itself, so you're better buying something else.

Guide Top

Other items:

Blade of the Ruined King: it is good against tanks or for splitpushing, because you will reach 2,5 attack speed. Take it instead of The Bloodthirster.
Infinity Edge: if you are lucky you will crit in a teamfight and gain precious time. It can also be a deciding factor in a 1v1. Take it if you feel that you need more damage instead of The Bloodthirster.
Skirmisher's Sabre: it is good if you can stick to them, because you auto attack a lot and it also makes you tankier.
Statikk Shiv: it is very good if you want to burst their ADC or APC very quickly. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra.
Youmuu's Ghostblade: for sticking power. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra.
Randui's Omen: it is good for sticking power and gives you a lot of tankiness(vs. phisycal damage). Take it instead of Warmog's Armor.
Spirit Visage: it is good with a life steal item and makes you tankier(vs. magic damage). Take it instead of Warmog's Armor.
Frozen Heart: if you are behind and you need that CDR, you can buy this, you have enough MR. Take it instead of Warmog's Armor.
Guinsoo's Rageblade: Miracle item. This item is simply amazing. It gives you: splitpushing power, dueling power, AOE damage. Just try. Take it instead of The Bloodthirster
Dead Man's Plate: this item deletes your only weakness, you are kiteable. The armor is nice too. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra.
Death's Dance: Along with the AD this item gives, it makes you almost unkillable in teamfights and that is exactly what you need if they are fed or just grouping all the time. Take it instead of Titanic Hydra

The best boots for Udyr are Mercury's Treads, but you can take Berseker's Greaves to reach 2,5 attack speed or Boots of Mobility to gank better. Ninja Tabi if they have no AP champ in their team or if all their ad champions are auto attack based.

Summoner Spells:

Smite: duh, you're the junler
Ghost: for ganking or chasing
Flash: in my opinion, Ghost is better on Udyr, but if you need to escape over a wall, they have Jarvan in their team or a champion with dash/blink, you can take it
Teleport: for those stacks
Clairvoyance: maybe if you want to make some Smite steals
Clarity: in some scenarios it might be usefull
Heal: for sustain and it still gives movement speed like Ghost
Barrier: just take Heal
Cleanse: don't take it
Ignite: not very good, but you can take it for killing fleeing enemies from distance
Exhaust: for dueling power, but you have enough of that
Garrison: wrong map

Since this build is going for burst damage we will be going Press the Attack. Unlike Electrocute, this mastery also amplifies your dueling power to be able to fight tankier foes.
Triumph is the general rune everybody takes. It's healing is just too good to be passed.
From the legend runes, alacrity is the most useful. With more attack speed you can proc Press the Attack faster and maybe get another mark from your Q.
Cut down is a pretty solid choice against tanks. Last stand is also good.

The second path we take is domination.
Eye ball collection makes up for the lack of Ad in the begining of the build. It is easy to stack since this build focuses on getting picks.
ravenous hunter is the second rune we will take. You will heal a lot from your Q damage. It is useful to escape from multiple enemies after going for a greedy kill.

Jungling route:

1. Start with Blue and don't use smite on it.
2. Continue with wolves.
3. Do red buff
4. Kill the closest scuttle crab to you
This route will give you level 3 and double buffs so you can gank easily after. DUring the clear alternate between Q and W, 4 attacks in each stance. Engage the camps with Bear Stance.
You are a strong 1v1er so don't be afraid of early invades or scuttle skirmishes.

Guide Top

Unique Skills:

1. When chasing, after you stun your target try to go in front of them to block their movement
2. When you are jungling, stun the big monster, use q and attack twice then use turtle stance until the mark expires, after that repeat
3. When you are chasing someone or you are running from someone, use bear stance and turtle stance to keep tour stacks up. If you are close enough you can use pheonix stance instead to damage them

Guide Top

Important things:

1. You can solo everyone.
2. No one can solo you.
3. You can solo 2 of them.
