I was wondering if you guys think udyr is still a viable champion. He was hard enough to play before the nerfs, and other than bear I think his skills are pretty useless unless the enemy wants to just stand and fight you. I think he can absorb some good damage, but othher than that he's pretty useless.

in my opinion he is still a good supporter. He was never a good killer (not counting the feed) neither tank. I always considered him as support char, costant stunning with good soaking abilities make him a great initiator. Also with his bear stance he is a great chaser and opens the gate for killing a fleeing enemy. You wont get focused much in teamfights since you are quite tough making you a stun stun stun stun master.

I would rather count him as a annoying fly that solo can kill almost anyone but it will take very long time. Laning against udyr can be very annoying coz of his soaking abilities. Putting him against mana users will get them dry just on trying to harras you.

I am still making the build for him but it requires alot of finetuning still... not played him that often but i like him :)

For sure thx to you Dirty i will have an Udyr day today :P

I played against an Udyr that was completely insane. He was beating when I was Warwick (and I wasn't doing bad) because of his well timed stance switches. I think he just takes good timing to play to his full potential.

Yeah I think the item build and skill order is the hardest part to get right with him. Innervating Locket is a necessity I have found, but I still wonder whether it's better to level tiger or phoenix. I guess we will just have to wait for DEWO to finish his build to really find out how to play him.

P.S.-DEWO has 814 posts?! That's a lot.

Still viable support, however there are much better choices now since the nerfs.

He's still viable, just very situational.

Since they nerfed Innervating Locket, I think he is even harder to play. That item was pretty much made for him.

Yea that screws him up pretty badly :( Especialy the mana part. This might be corrected with Chalice but that additional heal was like lifesteal for him... hmmm need to correct and retest some things this evening again :/
