tristanapassive.png Her passive is increasing her AA range as her E range per level. That makes Tristana a good scaler for lategame.

rapidfire.png Her Q is increasing her attackspeed. (Active)

 rocketjump.pngHer W is a big jump, with a small delay. Cooldown is resetted on a assist or kill. Great for disengage or chasing down kills in teamfights.

 detonatingshot.pngHer E is a ticking bomb, goes off with aoe dmg, good extra dmg to champs and towers. And her E passive makes explosive damage AOE when killing a unit, great for clearing waves fast.

 bustershot.pngHer R and Ultimate is great for finishing off a kill or pushing back the enemy frontline.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

Starters:


Standard is Dorans1055.png and a pot. (no details req.?)

 

If u think that it's going to be a farming lane, pick Cull1083.png as starting item. Or if you started with a Dorans Blade and are recalling with a small amount of gold, Cull is a good item for you. Do not get Cull too late into the game.

 

Core items:

 

First back should be when u got a B.F. Sword1038.png (1300+g). I've seen proplayers like Wildturtle go with Zeal3086.png  as first item and rush Runaans 3085.png before he got the BF. That aint my recommendation, but try it if u like(or nah:3).

 

1038.pngGet the BF Sword, boots and then rush runaan's or firecannon. 

 

3085.pngRunaan's Hurricane is great for waveclear and fast pushing. 

 or

3094.pngRapid Firecannon is great for taking down turrets and harassing with an advantage.


3031.pngInfinity Edge is a must-buy for that good damage and critchance.

 

3006.pngBuy your Berserkers, get that extra attackspeed.


3072.pngFinish off with the Bloodthirster for extra lifesteal and damage.

 

 Defensive items:

 

Now is it usually time for your defensive item(The sooner you need it the sooner you buy it). Get QSS before the Bloodthirster. And finish your merc whenever you want to.

If you are against a heavy cc team(most common is that players pick the most viable champs) QSS is a must-buy item. Or if your team didnt ban Zed and he got fed, i would say G.A. is a good defensive item as QSS only work on crowd control debuffs and not on singletarget debuffs(as Zed's ulti).

 

QSS3140.png => mercurial scimitar3139.png                        Guardians Angel 3026.png

 


 

Tristana is a champ that deals tons of damage. Double attackspeed items is a good investment on her if the enemys don't have heavy tanks.

 

3085.png & 3094.png is working good together.

 

If the enemy team DO have tanks, you will need a last whisper (Lord Dominik's Regards3036.png) and cannot buy two attackspeed items.

 

Rageblade:

 

Honestly, in my opinion that build suck :P ... But some ppl like it and are willing to try it. As the rageblade got nerfed or at least reworked, it isnt as viable on Tristana anymore.

Runaan's + Rageblade.

Vayne is a pretty weak laner, and Tristana outrange her more and more as she is scaling.

Good things to know(for beginners?) Back to Top

Tristana is a very fun adc to play (source: myself), because of her long range and extreamly high damage output. 


How to play 18.png: Depending on your support and your matchup in laningphase. You gotta know when to play aggressive and when not to. When you got supports as 267.png89.png412.png201.png37.png63.png53.png44.png12.png(it all depends on situations, technically all supports can be aggressive :P) and when the support acctually is comfortable with playing aggressive/good at landing skillshots. That is when you go aggressive in lane, and always harrass together with your support. Harrassing while its time for the enemy ad to lasthit is very important, that gives you a free trade(goes for all botlaners). 

Sometimes do you have to play safe, keep the trades as short as possible and as few as possible. That is either when you got jungle pressure from the enemyteam or when you got a bad early (and their botlane is stronger than yours). At those times you just sit back and lasthit and wait for your main lee jungler to do some insec ganks. 

If you are up against a 51.png & 63.png (harrass from hell comp) and you have a 18.png & 1.png (outranged botlane), that is when you should either go all in on them or wait for ganks. Brand is a sqiushy target w/o mobility and 3v2 its pretty easy kills for you. 

To teamfights; as Tristana, your main focus is 1. keep your position as far away from the enemys as possible(within your aa range), 2. stay behind your frontline, 3. kite their enemy frontline, if u get caught its more likely your death (especially without QSS3140.png) use your W to jump away if necessary or your R to blow them away from you. 
4. Deal as much damage as possible, if your frontline(54.png62.png?) has cc'd their ap and ad carrys, go all in on them, with them dead, you have more likely won the fight.

Thats pretty much the basics on how to play tristana.


Thanks for reading (if u did), please do not hate if i have written something thats not right, help me fix them.
