Greetings, I have tried many different builds and this ended up working the best for me. This is not a tank build, nor is it a jungle build. This is a dps/carry build, ideal for working with support like Sona, Taric, Soraka etc. So please make sure your team is aware that your not the tank!

Please note: (Patch: League of Legends v1.0.0.104)
* Fixed some bugs where certain items would have their Tiger Stance damage cut down to 1/3. They now deal full damage on Tiger Hit. (Affected items are Madred's Razors, Wriggle's Lantern, Sheen, Lich Bane and Trinity Force)

Summoner Spells

Exhaust is highly useful when playing Udyr, due to his Bear form he is able to stun for a few seconds and catch up to enemies, this ability will guarantee that they can not get away, and it also lowers their armor and magic resistance etc. In a 1vs1 situation its imperative that you have this ability, when used it causes your enemy to miss all attacks for 3 seconds.

Ignite provides the necessary tool to prevent healing and regeneration when trying to focus down a carry. It also provides that last bit of damage you need to score a First Blood! There's nothing more frustrating than an enemy getting away with less than 100 hit points! This ability also works very well with this build due to the fact that the Tiger Stance also places a damage over time on your opponent. You'll be amazed at how much damage they will take as they are running away!



(Stance) On his next attack, Udyr swipes at his target, dealing a multiplier of his attack damage over 2 seconds.

Optional Items


Core Items

Item Breakdown

+120 Health
+6 Damage
+4% Lifesteal

(Gold Cost: 435)
The Doran's Blade is by far the most cost effective item in the game. You can't turn your head away from 120 bonus health, 6 damage, and more lifesteal. I like to start the game out with at least one, some times two. Obviously as the game progresses you will trade them in for better items, but early on this item really makes a huge difference.

+25 Magic Resistance
UNIQUE: Enhanced Movement 2
UNIQUE: Reduces the duration of stuns, slows, taunts, fears, snares, sleeps, and immobilizes by 35%.
(Gold Cost: 1200)
You will want to get Mercury Treads for its ability to reduce negative effects on you by 35% and the additional magic resistance. Even though this is a carry build, you still need to survive long enough to dish out the damage!

+700 Health
+20 Attack Damage

UNIQUE: Physical attacks slow enemy's movement speed by 30% for 2.5 seconds.
(Gold Cost: 3250)
The Frozen Mallet is Udyr's best friend. It gives a small amount of damage, a ton of hit points, and the best part, is, when you attack someone it's guaranteed to slow them for a few seconds with each successful hit you have. It really is a must have!

+30 Attack Damage
+40% Attack Speed
+25 Armor

UNIQUE: On hit, deals Magic Damage equal to 4% of the target's maximum Health.
(Gold Cost: 3800)
The Madred's Bloodrazor, is Udyr's primary damage dealing item. This little toy starts out adding 30 damage, 25 armor, and 40% attack speed, but with each successful hit it deals an additional 4% (of your targets total health) in magic damage. With the recent patch it now successfully works with Tiger Stance!!

+60 Attack Damage
+15% Life Steal
PASSIVE: Gain an additional 1 Physical Damage and 0.25% Life Steal per kill. Maximum of +40 Damage and +10% Lifesteal. Bonuses are lost upon death.
(Gold Cost: 3200)
I like to get the Bloodthirster for the amazing amount of lifesteal and damage it provides. It really is an all in one item and can provide the most lifesteal in the game. What is really neat is if someone else on your team rolls a Stark's Fervor you will have 50+ lifesteal!

+30 Attack Damage
+15% Critical Strike Chance

UNIQUE: 15% Cooldown Reduction and +20 Armor Penetration.
UNIQUE: Gives 20% movement speed and +50% attack speed for 4 seconds. Attacking enemy units with melee attacks increases the duration by 2 to a maximum of 8 seconds. 60 second cooldown.
(Gold Cost: 2687)
The Youmuu's Ghostblade is a great item to add to any dps build. It provides a natural armor penetration, damage, and crit chance.. Whats awesome is when used it increases your attack speed and move speed by a great deal which is perfect for finishing an enemy off, bursting a carry down, or fleeing/catching up to an enemy etc.

+45% Attack Speed
+30% Critical Strike
+20% Dodge
+15% Movement Speed

(Gold Cost: 3395)
The Phantom Dancer is the finishing touch to this build. It provides a great deal of attack speed, dodge, crit chance, and movement speed. Udyr's natural ability to dodge stacks with this, along with the runes, thus making you almost invulnerable to physical attacks once you get going. You will love this item!!
