Passive: Enemies explode when slain by Tristana's basic attacks, dealing 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+25% of ability power) magic damage to nearby enemies.

Active: Tristana throws a grenade charge on a target enemy or enemy turret. After 4 seconds, the charge explodes and deals 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 (+ 0.5 / 0.75 / 1.0 / 1.25 / 1.5 per bonus attack damage) (+50% of ability power) physical damage in an area. The explosion radius is increased when used on a turret.

Every basic attack, Rocket Jump or Buster Shot against a target with Explosive Charge adds an additional stack that increases Explosive Charge's final explosion damage by +30%, stacking up to 4 times (+120% damage). The Explosive Charge will detonate immediately upon reaching maximum stacks.

If Buster Shot is used to apply the last stack, the detonation will instead be delayed until the end of the knock back or the 4 seconds expire.
