Hello everyone,

I'm not sure what runes should I buy for Tryndamere
In a topic "Rune tips - What secondary and primary means and more." I think i had read out that Armor pen is very useful with him, to all physical damage dealers. But my question is, which runes i should buy.
Crit damage or Crit Chance ? Or should i mix them.
Of course i'm going to buy Last Whisper, which is importan if you hadn't armor pen ???.

I hope you understand these question.
sorry for my bad englisch.

I play Tryndamere with a crit chance rune page of +18%... I have conducted several tests... upto and including a crit dmg rune page of +27%, when it comes down to it the facts are this....



1) crit dmg only matters IF you crit... besides trynd has champion abilities that increase this upto 8 times stacked through his Q ability. Just pick up the extra +10% from offense masteries and the rest is making sure you crit.

2) Crit chance helps only when you crit which, uunder normal conditions, would make armor pen a better skill to have since it is ALWAYS active vs. a chance.... BUT, you are tryndamere.... if you are trying to hit an enemy and 5 strikes go by without a crit.... they will be roflmao'n at you from their side of the keyboard. All of your ablities scale of the ability to crit.... BUY RUNES, ALL CRITICAL STRIKE CHANCE...... it will help you faster and allow you to speed the buying of your infinity edge by several items.

3) When it came to glyphs however, i went with flat CDR for a 5%+ reduction of my abilities, i find it more helpful than an extra 2% crit chance....

Another thing.... unless you are specifically trying to take out a tank.... before you buy last whisper.... press tab and look over the other dps champions gear.... typically i notice they are too worried about trying to get high end dps gear to get any type of armor gear... so save yourself wasted gold and look before you buy!

hamsterbubu, not to advertise, but in the top builds section there is a tyrn build by apoc. Read that it mentions all the important runes, and explains why Crit Chance runes > Crit dmg runes

Yea. The crit% runes are for a nice early game crit chance of 18-20%, but the ArP and CrD is best late-game where you have obtained your crit% items already.

Crit % are viable if your build has nothing more than very few crit items and instead pure damage items. The runes will drag your crit % up to the acceptable level.

The only time I'd run crit chance runes on Tryndamere is if you're jungling with him.

Armor penetration is better than crit damage and crit against enemy champions. But crit is best if you wanna jungle with him.
