Summoner Spells Back to Top

11.png
Smite

Smite is standard all junglers, it enables you to buy jungle items, clear jungle camps quicker and healthier, and secure objectives ( Baron / Dragon)



4.png
Flash

Flash is  standard on most champions, Udyr is no exception, he has many abilities / items to increase his movement speed, but having an instant gap closer adds a ton of versatility to your play.

New Runes Back to Top

Press%20the%20Attack.png?width=64 Tiger stance Udyr quickly procs 3 auto attacks on the enemy, and then not only applies bonus damage for doing that, but increases damage the enemy takes after that.
Triumph.png?width=64 Heal when you get a kill or assist, can give you the small amount of health you need to survive during a 1v1 or give you a ton of sustain during a teamfight where you might get multiple kills and assist.
Legend%20Alacrity.png?width=64 Free attack speed, that will scale later and later into the game. 
Coup%20De%20Grace.png?width=64 Deal more damage to targets with low health, easier to finish champions off.

Celerity.png?width=64 More movement speed, and will give you bonus AD for any Bonus movement speed you get during the game.
Waterwalking.png?width=64 Move faster in the river and get AD while in the river, making Udyr's once weak fights in the river more in his favor, and gives you more speed when moving into lanes or the enemies side of the jungle from the river.

FEROCITY

127.jpg
6111.png - More free attack speed, more attacks in udyrtigerstance.png form
6121.png - More damage on initial auto attack, more free damage.
6134.png - AD & AP per level, free stats for gaining levels, and you can get some value out of the AP in udyrturtlestance.png
6141.png - Lets a small snowball turn into a big one, the other options in 6142.png & 6143.png are ok, but don't let you take over games like bounty hunter, and give you overbearing damage. 
6151.png - Percentage Armor Pen, so you can deal damage to tankier champions without a Armor Penetration item.
6162.png - udyrtigerstance.png Tiger Form Udyr basically only auto attacks, you can build up Fervor's 9 stacks very quickly since a basic combo is udyrbearstance.png > Auto > udyrtigerstance.png > Auto > Auto. The more Fervor stacks you have the more bonus AD you get making Tiger Stance udyrtigerstance.png & Auto attacks deal even more damage.


CUNNING127.jpg

6312.png - +5 damage on single target attacks to minions and monsters, so basically +5 damage per auto attack and udyrtigerstance.png passive tick.
6321.png - Keep buffs longer, Red buff is especially important on Udyr s the longer you can hold onto it the better. 
6343.png - Restore Health and Mana on kill or assist, you will be somewhat squishy and this bonus during fights can really help.

Why go Tiger Stance?

Udyr has 2 main playstyles both revolving around either maxing Q udyrtigerstance.png or Maxing R udyrphoenixstance.png 

Maxing Q  tiger stance udyrtigerstance.png empowers Udyr's Auto attacks and any AD items built on him this playstyle lets Udyr do a ton of damage against enemies he gets onto, and practically killing them in a couple auto attacks. It makes Udyr a lot easier to play to kill squishy champions. You lose out on AOE damage and tankiness from the build path and style of udyrphoenixstance.png for the tradeoff of lots of AD damage.

Example Full Build

1400.png3078.png3117.png3142.png3742.png3026.png

Tiger Stance Udyr benefits from the early AD from Warrior 1400.png giving you huge burst damage on targets you get onto, then builds into Trinity 3078.png which gives you a little of everything which is just what a basic champion like Udyr needs. The other items are just tank + damage items so you get slightly tanker but also get some damage with it.

3078.png Gives you the utility of 3057.png which can be proc'd alot with Udyrs kit constantly switching forms. 3044.png which helps you to stick on targets you have already hit. & Attack speed and CDR from 3101.png.
3117.png Let you get onto the target easier, but not stay on them
3009.png Helps you stay on targets, but not as useful if you aren't tanky.
3111.png & 3047.png are more expensive defensive options.

3142.png Burst of attack speed, and Lethality adds LOT of damage to udyrtigerstance.png
3742.png Health, Movement Speed, and small amount of damage
3026.png AD, Armor, and Revive - Lets you play more reckless / trade for an important enemy carry during a teamfight.
3156.png AD, Magic Resist, CDR, and a spell shield + Life steal passive when low on health.


3748.png & 3512.png will help you split push

Mechanics Back to Top

The Mechanics of Tiger form Udyr are as basic as it gets in League of legends. 


udyrtigerstance.png After activating Q , your first auto attack will deal bonus physcial damage, and deal damage over time, every 3rd auto while still in tiger form will apply the same bonus.

So a basic combo for Udyr Mechanically looks like this:


Unless a champion is very squishy or you are very fed you most likely won't kill them in just a E > auto > Q > auto, but even chunking a laner to half health with this combo and returning to the fog of war is a good play.

If an enemy champion walks into you while you are in a bush 3341.png2055.png lead your damage with udyrtigerstance.png not udyrbearstance.png , use udyrbearstance.png stun when they are trying to run away, you can get multiple auto attacks off before they notice you are even damaging them.


After an auto attack always be clicking past the enemy champion you are attacking to move with them as they are running away or else you will stand still where you initially channel the auto attack.

Early Game Back to Top

Early Game on Udyr you want get a gank off and reset quickly then return to farming, then look to punish the enemy jungler base on how they moved around the map.


So lets say you are on Blue side and follow this path

Red Buff > Wolves > Blue > Gank Top

Ideally you can kill top, but even chunking top lane then moving away from the lane and recalling, then resetting back into your red side will let you be in position to farm your raptors then gank mid or bot, or farm the enemies blue side when they show in a lane. 

You can reverse the path for Red side, this is a pretty standard jungle path, but if you aren't used to it, it will take some practice to not only do properly the first time in the heat of the movement, but to refine and optimize your decision making based on the current and situational state of the match.

Build path should look something like this

Gank with no kill Recall dot-pattern.png 3715.png
Gank a get kill Recall dot-pattern.png 1036.png 1036.png 1001.png



Mid Game Back to Top

Mid game you should have a completed Warrior 1400.png a tier 2 boots 3117.png and be building into Trinity in this order 3044.png dot-pattern.png 3057.png dot-pattern.png 3101.png 


During the Mid game you should look to farm wolves, raptors, and gromp, then look for fights. Carry 1 or 2 Control Wards 2055.png and 3341.png to deny the enemy's vision of the areas you want to exist in. Once you clear out vision and stay in the same spot it's likely that the enemy will try to re-Ward the area, then you can attack them.

If you can catch squishy enemy carries in side lanes alone then you should try to gank them, so long as you know they don't have a support or jungler behind them.

When nothing else is happening on the map you can take Dragon and Rift herald solo.


Late Game Back to Top

Late game your most effective in a side lane split pushing, how and when to split push comes down to if you can push the wave or fight any laner that would come to stop you, or if you can escape any laner that would come to stop you. Even if you are behind you can push waves and for the enemy to respond while you do nothing and stall out the game through this means.


Tiger Stance Udyr with a 3078.png takes down towers very quickly, so when both teams are doing the Baron dance you can push down a side lane and quickly take tower after tower and maybe end the game off a single push!

Watch the map constantly so you can get a feel for when to back off and when to keep pushing, if you are simple staring at the center of your screen you will obtain no information.


3748.png & 3512.png will help you with split pushing.

You can team fight but, but it's better to join fights late coming from another lane and cleaning up / chasing low targets. Udyr's kit is so basic that it's really hard to get anything done in a 5v5.
