I guess I would have to say from personal experience that Shyvana Has my vote. Tanky enough to withstand early game harass, solid sustain and the ability to snowball if circumstance allows.

As with most of the things in League though most of it relies heavily upon the matchup. Overall though my vote goes to Shyv.

Riot seems to go to great lengths to ensure the playing field is level. For every OP champion their seems to be an equally OP champion to counter it.

Trundle has always been good... has never been nerfed. Does insanely well against most melees, but people just felt he has underwhelming teamfights and they are correct, mostly because most people can't use his pillar for **** (or of ****). Make a squishy out of a tank, peel for the ADC, use the pillar for shenanigans and poke someone's eye out with that huge bat.

Now that tanks are prominent and his kit fits the bill to counter such atrocities, he's been picked up and lo! and behold, SoloQ spammage has been going steady.

I will soon spam him in Solo Q to counter Dr. Mundo and Shyvana...maybe even Renekton and Rengar. I need a guide though...I have tons of questions that need answering.

When in doubt, press r.
The only damage you need on him is BotRk and Trinity if you're really ahead. otherwise just botrk and crazy tanky

Basically how I play LoL

This. Basic is rush BotRK, get tanky as ****, press R on the tankiest mofo you see. More advanced is learning properly how to Pillar and taking advantage of your MS/AS boost from that absolutely HUGE ice rink he has.

Just splitpush, hoping the other team is dumb enough to send just one person to stop you. This usually happens, as the top laner just HAS to take care of his lane and whatnot lol.

I also like to rush Ravenous Hydra instead because he already has AS steroids, but most prefer the BotRK for the dueling and passive.

So... Rengar isn't a high priority pick anymore or something?

Rengudingo sucks at top lane. Pick rOPen and win every lane. (She is still amazing imo)

^ First of all, Rengar has both seen play as an assassin as well as a tank in solo queue, not sure whether the nerf straight up killed both (or either, even).

Secondly, could you do everyone a favor and just type Rengar and Riven? It took me forever to even figure out who you meant with rOPen, lol (I'll admit part of that is because I'm stupid, but still).
