I'm not sure really. Nashor's is just a "meh" item overall. It has the highest CDR of any item though and that's a plus.

I don't play "carries" much. I prefer to carry as the tank. :3

I know it's a rather "meh" item, which is why I suggested malady first. But the high cdr and AS it gives might be useful.

I don't actually play tristana, so I don't really know what would synergize well with her either. XD

Lich bane is fine.

It adds nicely to you BOOM BOOM POWWW combo.

Maybe something like that would work for you? I'm not too sure, but that's a basic build I would use for ap. Ignore the order; it's not important.

Remove the malady and replace Rylai with Hourglass and it's a good build.

I'd replace malady with a defensive item or Lich Bane. Lich Bane isn't because you're able to spam, it's because mobility, mana, MR and AP is useful. (the passive is just a bonus)

Still, keep in mind that AD Tristana is and will always be stronger than AP Tristana.

Why would you use AP tristana? just for fun, because AD is stronger and as they said before, she can't spam, neither to activate lich bane neither to be a good AP champ... IMO
if you want AP go for a mage, they're very stronger on this field, for sure... lower CD's, stronger spells...



and speaking on AD tristana...

her runes:
using marks and quints for armor penetration should I buy Last Whisper or The Black Cleaver?
and using only marks for armor penetration?
what about ignite and exhaust? what are your preference in AD carriers?
Thx for Nyoike for this sig! Tanks FTW s2

It shouldn't matter if one is stronger than the other. It's the skill behind the strength that makes a champ good or bad. AD Trist is just easier to build and use.
