Summoner Spells Back to Top

Standard ADC summoner spells.

New Runes Back to Top

I much prefer Cut Down if the enemy has any sort of tanks at all, with the ER build I will shred their frontline without many issues.

Masteries Back to Top

I personally feel this is the best and most consistent for Tristana. If you are going against a hard matchup I suggest switching from Double Edged Sword to Feast, it will give you that extra bit of sustain to last longer! 


YOU MAY ASK, WHY WARLORD?

Listen ya, it is just better I've listened to what a lot of other peoples opinion on Fervor and most of them say it is better which I personally disagree. In my opinion warlord is the best and I have personally tested it out far far better for late game as most lower ELO games last longer and I am at a pretty low ELO myself, Fervor is only good for laning/early-game. You would practically feel nothing changed when you are using it in teamfights early/mid-game on. Warlord comes into play with the crit that you do even if it is once or twice on the target you hit, it might just save your life or give you that extra bit of HP to finish a 1vs1 DUEL.

LISTEN YA, ITS UP TO YOU, FOLLOW THIS GUIDE OR DO IT YOUR OWN WAY.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    STANDARD.
    Against heavy poke match-up like Caitlyn and Janna.
    First back, either BF Sword or Pickaxe.
    If low on money on first back.
    After BFSword/Pickaxe, you want to move onto completing your first zeal item.

Core Items

    After SS, get IE along with boots.
    From here on you can go with the traditional double zeal item which imo does very little damage to any champion that is even slightly tanky.
    I recommend essence reaver after SS and IE, which will allow you to have your Q up every 4 seconds. Not only this, it gives you the much needed AD for Tristana.
    Last two items to finish off.
    Frontline destroyer Full build example.
    Traditional ADC Build. You will find this build do a lot less damage compare to the ER build.
    If they have 0 tanks/bruisers. Go for this 100% crit build.

Situational Items

    You can try, but with ER + Lord doms you have insane damage even against full tanks. Not really needed.
    I dislike this item, but if enemy has assassins that can one shot you... replace it with Merc.
    If they have heavy healing team comp, I would still prefer to get lord doms if they have any sort of tanky champions.
    Can replace merc with blood thirster if they have CC that you can easily avoid.

VS

Ashe

Easy

Should be a fairly straight forward matchup, you just have to watch out for her ultimate and her W. Even if you don't there is a big problem you can easily out trade her and at level 6 dodge her R with your W and you can get a free kill on her 1vs1.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

Nobody likes him :(( at least you still got your W...?NOT

VS

Brand

Hard

This support will poke the crap out of you, so you just need to be very aware of when you go for a cs he might just W you and do tones of damage! After that you can abuse it when his W is on cooldown and trade with your enemy.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Annoying but no the worst opponent to go up against, she will poke you down pretty heavily if you let her. You support should be in the bushes to zone her from poking you as much which means your support can engage on Caitlyn if she does try to go out of the ranged minions to poke you. Any sustain support would counter Caitlyn.

VS

Draven

Hard

A good or bad draven, will means a happy laning phase or a nasty laning phase. If he is a decent draven he'll completely rekt you with even support matchup. All you can do is pray and farm under turret. Try not to get hit by him especially when he have double axe, if you trade back you take a lot more damage!

VS

Graves

Easy

After the update he isn't as strong in laning phase as he was. In before he can burst you down easily but now it is fairly easy to lane against him. Trade against him whenever you can as long as you stay behind minions you often will out trade him.

VS

Jinx

Medium

A fairly straight forward ADC to go up against, if they have leona support and you get all in jinx will use its E to snare you which means you are probably going to die unless you have a counter support, like Alistar.

VS

Kindred

Medium

Insane amount of sustain from Kindred, it really does depend on the support that you have in my opinion. Play safe, farm and avoid trading unless you have a sustain support.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

1/100 of my games I've played against a Kog'Maw, can't really say much but it seems like a very similar type of ADC as Tristana. :/

VS

Lucian

Hard

He is a burst champion, if you are not careful you might die before you even notice it! Try to play safe and know when it is just trading or he could go all in and kill you with ease.

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

She counters you, watch out for her Q, it'll kill you !

VS

Nami

Medium

TO BE EDITED.

VS

Nautilus

Hard

His abilities counters your W it can be annoying from time to time and once you get caught by him and your W is out you can very easily die as he has good early damage. Just try to avoid getting hooked by him. Stay behind minions.

VS

Sona

Medium

TO BE EDITED.

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

No one likes this guy! Annoying, he will eat you if you get caught, and slow you down!!! Just keep a good distance from him, watch out when going all in because if you don't kill their ADC before he can auto attack you three times he can eat you = turns you to their turret = YOU DIE.

VS

Thresh

Medium

Push the lane hard and stay behind minions and you will be safe! Always watch where he positions himself because if he lands a hook on you it might just mean GG WP, and you go full tilt and rage quit.

VS

Varus

Medium

Very different ADC compare to most ADC, but this is an even matchup which depends on what support you have. Try to avoid his Q it can do a lot of damage mid/late game.

VS

Vayne

Medium

No kill pressure pre-6, but post-6 if vayne is fed or ahead they can potentially 1vs2 you and your support! Please be aware, a vayne getting ahead is pretty nasty. When you get engaged on feel free to have you and your support to go all in the ADC because vayne is very weak in early stages of the game. DO NOT FORGET, 1VS1ing VAYNE IS BAD unless you are ahead, and this is where the statikk shiv comes into play which might save you! :)

VS

Zyra

Medium

Very annoying, but you can easily evade if you watch before she cast her abilities and see it coming to avoid it.
