Greetings, this is not a jungle, nor a tank, nor a carry build. This is strictly a lifestealing support build, which provides a great amount of control to your allies. You will be amazed at how hard you are to kill, how much damage you can dish out, and how much control you do provide. Below are the details and why this build actually works!! Cowabunga Dude!!!

Summoner Spells

This is where it all begins. Combined with Bear Stance, Exhaust provides some really nasty movement speed control, along with defensive tweaks. When activated your opponent will lose armor, and magic resistance, and will miss all of his/her attacks for 3 seconds!! Oh did I mention that they are crippled, moving extremely slow for 3 seconds also?! Sweet Dude!!

Like totally dude, Ignite rocks man!! You have to get this ability to combine with Tiger Stances damage over time. It's quite nasty if you ask me. Trick is, pop Ignite, Exhaust, Bear Stance, then switch to Tiger Stance, let the damage over times do their job and whoops instant FIRST BLOOD! =)



(Innate) Udyr's attack speed is increased by 10% and dodge chance by 3% for 5 seconds each time he switches stances. This effect can stack up to 3 times.


(Stance) On his next attack, Udyr swipes at his target, dealing a multiplier of his attack damage over 2 seconds.
Passive: Udyr's attack speed is increased. In addition, Udyr splits his attacks into 3 lightning fast hits. On-hit effects only trigger off the first hit.
Cooldown: 6 seconds.
Cost: 75 / 65 / 55 / 45 / 35 Mana
Multiplier: 1.8 / 2.1 / 2.4 / 2.7 / 3
Attack Speed: 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70%


(Stance) Udyr gains a temporary shield that absorbs damage.
Passive: Udyr's attacks cannot crit, but he restores a percentage of his damage as health and mana.
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Cost: 75 / 65 / 55 / 45 / 35 Mana
Damage Absorbed: 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+0.5 per ability power)
Health Restored: 12 / 14 / 16 / 18 / 20%
Mana Restored: 9 / 10.5 / 12 / 13.5 / 15%


(Stance) Udyr gains increased movement speed for a few seconds.
Passive: Udyr mauls his target with such force that they are stunned for 1 second. This effect cannot occur on the same target for 6 seconds.
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Cost: 75 / 65 / 55 / 45 / 35 Mana
Movement Speed: 15 / 18 / 21 / 24 / 27 %

Core Items

Item Breakdown

+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! Plus, you don't want to be sitting around waiting for the stuns & snares to wear off. =)

+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!! Literally every time you hit someone they will become slowed by 30%, every attack, every time!! Combined with Bear Stance, no opponent will be able to do anything they want to. This item also provides an amazing amount of health!!

+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. You will be amazed at how much lifesteal you will end up with by level 18! =)

+20% Attack Speed
UNIQUE Aura: Gives nearby allied Champions 20% Life Steal, 20% Attack Speed, and 30 Health Regen per 5. Reduces the Armor of nearby enemy champions by 20.
(Gold Cost: 2550)
The Stark's Fervor is a great item to add to any dps build. It provides a good amount of lifesteal, attack speed, and lowers your opponents defenses. The best part is it gives your entire team a piece of that action, really making you more valuable to your team.

+35 Attack Damage
+45 Ability Power

PASSIVE: On attack, increases your Attack Speed by 4% and Ability Power by 6. Lasts 5 seconds (stacks up to 8 times).
(Gold Cost: 2235)
The Guinsoo's Rageblade is such a wicked item I couldn't resist adding it to this build. Not only does it provide damage, attack speed, but it also increases your ability power... Wait what? Why ability power you ask?! Ability power increases your Turtle Stance shield even further, thus, making you even harder to kill!! Righteous move dude!! =)

350 Mana
+80 Ability Power
+30 Magic Resistance
+7% Movement Speed

UNIQUE: When you use an ability, your next physical attack deals an additional 100% of your Ability Power in damage. This effect has a 2 second cooldown.
(Gold Cost: 3470)
So yeah, how can you really pass this item up with the recent patch making this item stack with Tiger Stance?! Yep it's true, Lich Bane's passive now works with Tiger Stance, thus making you dish out an insane amount of "Damage over Time" while you switch back to Turtle Stance to continue lifestealing your way to the top... As you see your damage wont be hindered at all, oh and more ability power and movement speed... Sweeeeeet!!!
