Introduction of Udyr, The animal spirit
Hello fellas! Today me Neerox brings you a Fresh and new Udyr jungle and solotop guide! This guide wont talk about any Information about Pheonix Udyr if tiger dosent take advantage from it. If i forgot something just message me! Well enjoy!
Thanks to Searz for the awesome guide format! You can find it here
Rule 2: Never say no to rule #1.
Rule 3: Movement Speed is really funny to deal with when playing Udyr.
Rule 4: Udyr loves Trinity Force.
Rule 5: People with probably rage on you for being tanky without any real tanking items or reasons.
Rule 6: Even if you lose your lane early game, Udyr is the strongest solo top late game. No question. No one wants to fight an Udyr When he is maxxed. Ever.
Rule 7: If you aint listening to rule 6 you will probably get raped the tiger way by udyr.
Rule 8: Udyr is not a fan of the enemy team having Janna, Nunu or Nasus.
Rule 9: Udyr is really ****ing Overpowered just saying.
I will talk about My runes and about other runes i find Viable for Udyr and why i pick these runes!
Main rune setGreater Quintessence of Swiftness
This is my Quintessence for udyr since it will help my ganking ALOT even after i got or upgraded the boots since you will be able to Chase down Anything or anyone, with about 400 Movement speed early levels without any Buffs or anything it's pretty Crazy! Best Quintessence for Udyr.
Greater Mark of Desolation Greater Mark of Desolation
This is in my opinion the best Mark for tiger stance Udyr since you're not supposed to stack attack speed on him. This mark will incrase your damage by alot
Greater Seal of Resilience
An very normal Seal for jungler and i find this one a bit better than the dodge one since im not using Nimbleness in masteries this one will make your jungling alot easier. This rune is just personal prefference so go with what you like
Greater Glyph of Shielding
This runes will make you become more Tanky against Casters even at solotop or while jungling the best Glyph pick for Udyr.
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
Greater Mark of Lethality
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Offensive JunglerUdyr. It gives you More Experiance which is a most for junglers and more regeneration and more Movement speed this is in my opinion the best basic mastery tree for jungle Udyr
Defensive/Utility (SOLOTOP Mostly]
Since the meta says Flash is the best spell i think so aswell. Flash will help and maybe even chase down your targets who Knows? Always pick this spell!
This is a nobrain spell for every jungler so pick it when you're jungling without it it's easy for the enemy to get dragon and baron since you wont be able to contest it.
Kill them! Kill Them with fire! Ignite is a very good finisher or healing reduction spell for Udyr Only pick this if you're going sololane against a target which can heal.
Exhaust is what i call the true tanky summoner since you will just throw it on the enemys Carries and it's most likely Game over for them.
NORMAL LV.1-LV.4 Jungle Sequence
LV.2 Gank Jungle Sequence
SOLOTOP Lane Sequence
Against Attack Damage Foes
This build is only possible if you're fighting many strong Ad champions. Atleast about 4 of them in the same team
Against Ability Power Foes
This build is only possile if you're fighting many strong Ap champions. Atleast about 4 of them in the same team
Yes these 2 builds are a bit silly but they do really work great if you're fighting an enemyteam with the 2 diffrent "attributes"
I do really love to start with Cloth armor at solotop if you're against a Physical jungler and a physical opponent but mostly used for jungling as you know. No matter what you should always pick up 5 Health potions aswell.
Boots of Speed
An awesome starting item if you're Laning against an AP champion.
ONLY get this one if you're laning agianst 2 enemys and you have to upgrade this one into a Philosopher's StonePhilosopher's Stone later on and maybe even Shurelya's Reverie.
This item is the best F****** item Created for Udyr it stacks so well with Turtle stance and it does give you armor and damage which i know you're all in love with. Yay! Free wards. Overall a great item for Udyr and many other champions. ALWAYS get this item no matter what.
It gives Udyr all the stats he needs. And ofcourse a slow, Damage incrase on his spammy abilities and Ofcourse a ****load of movement speed. ALWAYS get this!
Force of Nature
The best ANTI Ability power item on Udyr since it also gives him movement speed and Health regen this is one of the reasons i hit 476 movement speed without any temporarly buffs or anything:)ALWAYS get this.
Obviusly the best armor item for udyr since he is a mobility tanky dps champion and this one debuffs your enemies and incrases your durability for Melee champions.
This one does epicly stack with Randuin's Omen and it is a very good combo togheter if your enemies got alot of ad:) And it gives CDR which will make you even more spammy:) and a bit higher manapool which isnt to neccesary.
Upgrade your Wriggle's Latern into The Bloodthirster at endgame when you are maxxed:) Just this The bloodthirster incrases your Tiger stance Q Dot with 150 damage when Max stacked. I bet you say WOOT.
My Favorite anti CC teams. Awesome and worth the cash MR item for sure.
Other viable items
Atma's Impaler. Great damage item. Also makes you a bit more tanky and is awesome used with a Warmog's armor
Hextech Gunblade. Awesome ranged slow item does give you ****loads of damage and will make your Turtle stance absorb more damage and your Tiger stance dot will heal you. Overall a great Ad/ap item for udyr.
Infinity edge. If you havent seen udyr deal "Any" Damage you will **** BRIX when you see this one just saying.
Last Whisper. An awesome item for udyr if the opponents are very tanky and you need some more armor penetration!
Madred's Bloodrazor. You're not supposed to stack AS as tiger udyr but this one is just awesome with the damage incrase you get and the armor. An great item!
Phantom Dancer. You need movement speed? what else? it gives you more as and crit which is never wrong but choose wisely.
Sword of the Divine. I bet you're not a friend of jax or someone else which loves to stack dodge. Best Active for anti dodgers and you will get even more armor penetration.
The Black Cleaver. An good item if you want armor penetration and some drasticly damage changes.
Tiamat. If you're seriusly picking this item you should have really good reasons. but if you're aiming for 600+ CS when the game is over pick this one.
Wit's End. This one should only be picked when fighting 3 AP champions and you need some more attack speed.
Youmuu's Ghostblade. When your movement speed goes WOOT. None will never ever catch you and your damage will become sick.
When you're laning as udyr you should always remember that you're a very strong champion but you can do very much wrong when duelling someone. Try focusing on farming and harras with your Tiger dot when you have about 300 mana. Always build to counter your enemies so your lane will become easier and you will be unstoppable in endgame if farmed right. Keep on lasthitting minions in turtle stance to refound your mana and heal yourself to sustain the harras your enemy will try to deal. Start of by being kind of defensive and when you actually got Wriggle's Lantern you should become more aggresive.
Well i guess thanks for taking your time reading this guide:) After alot of raging at other Udyr players i think it is about time i show em how things is done!
Have fun and keep that Tiger happy! Rawr!
