Lich Bane
Zhonya's Hourglass
Blade of the Ruined King
Berserker's Greaves
Phantom Dancer
Enchantment: Furor

The point of this build is to continuously autoattack the enemy from a distance, making use of your Blade of the Ruined King and Malady. When the opportunity arises to score a kill, Tristana can easily jump in and finish the enemy off. If things get dangerous Tristana has 5 ways to save herself:

-Activate Blade of the Ruined King to steal health,
-Use Buster Shot and run,
- Flash out,
-Or Rocket Jump to safety.
So... what do you think? Is it viable? Is it not? I fairly new to League of Legends, so I am totally open to constructive criticism.

Deathfire Grasp
Blade of the Ruined King
Liandry's Torment

is all you need to shred tanks...

on a serious note, that build risks being severely innefective, easily countered by Randuin's Omen and neither stat (AD or AP) will be great enough to matter.
also, you should consider building penetration stats of whatever you are focusing on.

You most definately want to go either physical OR magical damage, due mostly to armor/magic penetration. One effective way to shred tanks as Tristana would be going full armor pen Marks with flat damage Quintessences. Then you get Ruined king, black cleaver and Last Whisper, along anything tanky or that give some more attack speed. Just make sure you dont go over 2.5 attack speed when your buff is on, any more is wasted stats.

That's one way you could go... Regarding AP Tristana, it is hardly viable anyway, although you can sure have a lot of fun playing it.

It is just funny that Trist has one of the highets combined AP ratios in the game and she can use Lich Bane really well on top of it. (since the Explosive Shot change, she can even easily poke with Lich Bane)
He is gonna kill you!!!

No she has long cooldowns so Lich Bane actually isn't as good as it may seem on Trist. With her Passive, her Rapid Fire and her super sexy base attack speed, she can make great use of Malady. I actually think AP Tristana is still under rated while still being the most fun burst mage in the game.

Btw going Black Cleaver + Last Whisper is a terrible idea lol.

Getting both AP and AD items on the same champion never works except for like ~5 champions (and Trist isn't one of them). It's incredibly not cost efficient so it does terrible damage compared to a full AP build or a full AD build.

The best way to counter tanky enemies is to kite them and to get Blade of the Ruined King + Last Whisper. You also need other DPS items like Infinity edge and Phantom Dancer. You can also get Guardian Angel or Frozen Mallet. Use your high range and stay with your tanks/supports so they can peel enemies off you.

Or if you REALLY want to jump at tanky enemies and kill them, play someone with % of HP damage like Vayne
