I very much appreciate this guide!

If you're to look simply at the build core, this totally benefits those who want bang for their buck.

Tristana has some pretty incredible attack speed in a pinch, and this can be used as a buffer to introduce some amazing crit+utility.

Your choice of statikk shiv + rapid fire cannon is a great pick, allowing for some extra damage for team fights, and wave-clear potential. I definitely see this as a great tool for a crit build, which gives Trist some really nice default ASI, in addition to some sweet extra damage. Might seem a little cookie-cutter at this rate, but with an ADC champ like Tristana it's to be expected for her to have a ASI+Crit oriented build.

Thanks for this guide, I'll definitely bookmark it!

I started playing last pre-season and the first guide I read was this one. Almost a year later, I think I owe you a huge thanks for teaching me how to be an ADC and for making me a Trist main.

Why are suddenly the rapid fire cannon + stattik shiv builds so good on Trist and Caitlyn and wouldn't you think it would be better to get 4 attack speed glyphs? Everything else is great thanks for the guide! :)

4 AS glyphs are optional. RFC + Shiv builds are meta now because they were buffed to synergize well together.

What do you think about Tristana's place in the meta right now after the nerfs this patch (7.18)?

I think she's probably still fine, but I haven't played her yet.

Looks like a downgrade unless you're straight up rushing it to me. Time will tell.

Stuff that pops into my head:

You seem to run 18/12/0 while most of the ADC mains have been using 18/0/12 for a long time due to the Cunning tree being rather pointless without Precision and Thunderlord's Decree .

Why don't you just take 1x Vampirism and 4x Natural Talent ? You lose basically nothing and gain even better lane sustain.

Doran's Shield is still a legit starting item that many do go for when playing Tristana. I think it at least deserves a mention :)).

Korean ADCs (Zhanqisususu and Deft to name a few) alternate between Fervor of Battle and Warlord's Bloodlust . Both are in my opinion rather viable and one is better than the other in some scenarios. It's also worth mentioning here that many ADCs that I regularly follow opt for the Runaan's Hurricane + Statikk Shiv/ Rapid Firecannon/ Phantom Dancer combo for the added power against clumped targets.

What is your opinion on going three levels in Explosive Charge and then maxing Rapid Fire by level 10?

Yeah I'm going to be updating all of my guides for that in the future.

"Why don't you just take 0x Vampirism and 5x Natural Talent ? You lose basically nothing and gain even more DPS."

Logic goes both ways, I just don't understand why 0.4% lifesteal is considered the perfect amount of additional sustain on all ADCs in the face of Doran's Blade/ Doran's Shield sustain, HP regen, Ardent Censer, support heals, Relic Shield heals, etc. You already have so much sustain from so many different sources, why is an extra 0.4% lifesteal exactly what you need in all situations, no matter the champion and no matter your other sources of sustain? If it's that good, why not more points in Vampirism ? If it's not that good, why not 0 points in it? Why is precisely 0.4% that important?

I've never understood the logic and I've never heard a convincing argument for it, so I don't buy into that particular Masteries strategy.

I honestly thought I'd already updated the guide to include this, I'll get round to adding it in the near future.

I don't know who the other guy is, but I just looked up Deft's 9 last Tristana games, which are all the ones he's played in the past week+, and he used Warlord's in every one.

Additionally Tristana in Diamond has an 85% playrate with Warlord's and a 15% playrate with Fervor; and even though Fervor is used so rarely, which would indicate it's only used situationally, it actually has a negative winrate on what is otherwise one of the strongest solo queue ADCs of the patch.

If there's any situation where Fervor is optimal, it's too rare and hard to identify for me to want to advocate it.

I mostly stick to what's meta and I can't remember the last time I saw a Tristana in pro play or high Elo solo queue not build Statikk Shiv + Rapid Firecannon. Additionally the winrate of any other Zeal upgrade on Tristana is abysmal, so anything else doesn't seem worth considering.

Personally I think the additional wave clear and tower damage from maxing Explosive Charge is too good to pass up on, but more points in Rapid Fire probably performs better in team-fights, especially once you have two crit items completed.


Thank you for your feedback, I'll get round to fixing some of the things you mentioned soon.
