I recently got myself the free riot girl skin for Tristana and I looked her up to see if I even wanted to play her. After looking I noticed the AP ratios on w, e and ult were actually pretty good. I don't usually play AP champs, but I was wondering if it might be viable/worthwhile to try her as AP. (I play AD on occasion and auto attacking gets boring to me.)

AP isn't as good as AD, but it is definitly viable. Look at potatis destroying with AP Tristana everyone at inhouse matches. She is also one of the most viable mid lane AD-carries because of her high burst.

If you can get the combo off and the target dies, you can also use Rocket Jump again. This increases your damage drastically, especially with an item like Zhonya's Hourglass, which lets you live longer.

I would build her like this:

Boots of Speed + 3 Health Potion's
Frostfang
2x Doran's Ring
Sorcerer's Shoes
Rabadon's Deathcap
Lich Bane
Deathfire Grasp
Zhonya's Hourglass
Void Staff

Skill order: E at lvl 1,3,5 and R>W>E>Q

But if you don't kill them you're dead.

It's definitely viable, MOBAfire has several guides on it already.

It's also funny to watch you get fed, then literally 1 shot squishies ^_^

Surprisingly, AP Tristana is an extremely good counter to Ryze

Ok thanks guys, I'll definitely try it when I can pull myself away from Dark Souls long enough to play.
