S12 Simple Tryndamere Guide (Masters)
Best Overall Build
Hello, I am Fluoride, a masters Tryndamere top and mid player on the North American server. This is a simple Tryndamere guide that will tell you the optimal runes, summoners, skill path, and build.
These are the optimal runes for Tryndamere. Take unflinching against lots of CC, and revitalize into heavy poke lanes.
- Heavy Poke Lane
Always take flash ghost on Tryndamere. These mobility summoners allow Tryndamere to stick on enemy champs and maximize his damage.
Normally, you put 2 points in Q before W, as Q gives you more sustain and damage. However, if your jungler is going to gank for you, level W first so you can run the enemy laner down.
Do not put points additional points into Tryndamere ult, as the only benefit it provides is lowering the cooldown by 10 seconds.
- Skill Path
Use the "/Items & Spells" module to guide a reader through item purchases across every stage of the game, from starting items to full and situational builds. Use "+" to create custom sets depending on the matchup, role, and team comp.
- Standard Build
You always want to go one of the core builds listed above. If you are into lots of meele champs, grab a kraken for additional damage. Into lots of kite or range, get a galeforce to close the gap. If they have a mix of melee/range, try to identify who will be the largest threat and build around them. Zeal is a good item to snowball lane early, so buy it after boots if you are ahead. You don't need to build it into anything.
Additional option choices:
Phantom dancer for more DPS
Silvermere Dawn against lots of CC
Seryldas for armor pen
Randuins if you are getting oneshot by an AD assasin, like Blue Kayn, Rengar, or Qiyana
Mortal Reminder against lots of healing
