Tristana's Runes

electrocuteElectrocute is my favorite rune when playing Tristana. When you choose this rune, you will play in an allin style that attacks enemy champions. First activate RAPID FIRE then EXPLOSIVE CHARGE and jump on enemy champions with ROCKET JUMP very quickly to get Electrocute's stack for 40 - 194 adaptive damage. Also immediately after that will also gain EXPLOSIVE CHARGE's stack. . Explode again. You will become an assassin general.

Scorch To ensure that the output damage is large enough every time you decide to allin damage to a champion, this is the rune you must choose. Scorch deals 24-38 bonus magic damage.

Nullifying Orb If you are rushing towards an enemy champion, make sure you have enough health to make a decisive attack. This Nullifying Orb will help create a shield as soon as the health is below 35%.

Sweet Tooth The early laning phase is quite difficult with strong late game champions like Tristana. Especially the strength depends on the equipment, so this gem both helps Tristana to stay in the lane better and has an extra amount of gold to quickly get the necessary equipment.

Lethal Tempo If you choose Lethal Tempo, you will gain 6 - 12% more attack speed. At this point, your play will be to keep a good position in the teamfight to avoid being targeted. And the propensity to attack the entire enemy formation.

Tristana position

Tristana Wild Rift goes on the Dragon path.

Tristana Wild Rift is a genuine AD Carry gunner. The range increases with level and the amount of damage is not small.

Tristana Build Breakdown

Tristana Wild Rift will be built towards crit, attack speed and attack power. When first fully equipped Tristana will start taking damage.

Stormrazor Stormrazor is the first must-have item. The item gives Tristana all the necessary power.

Infinity Edge Infinity Edge is an item that will spike Tristana's damage with 230% crit.

Once you have these 2 equipment, you can completely corner the damage to defeat the enemy gunner. On the 3rd equipment, you will get on the blood-stealing shoe first. To be able to survive longer in the teamfights.

Blade of the Ruined King In case you encounter a counter champion with a long range. Constantly pokes you during laning phase. Get the Blade of the Ruined King item first. Blade of the Ruined King's lifesteal will help you stay in lane longer.

Runaan's Hurricane Runaan's Hurricane will help you farm minions faster and activate on-hit effects.

Rapid Firecannon No matter which direction you go to build Tristana. The must-have item is the Rapid Firecannon. When entering the late game, this will be an item that helps Tristana have a longer range to easily choose a safe position in the fight. Also grants 35% attack speed. Because now the whole team will go together, you will no longer have the opportunity to jump in the middle of the enemy team. The solution to increase the range is required.

The remaining items you can depend on the situation. If the enemy team has too many assassin champions. Go to Guardian Angel. If the enemy team has many tank champions, heal up Mortal Reminder.

Tristana's skill order

Tristana's skill order

Tristana's abilities

DRAW A BEAD DRAW A BEAD

Increase attack range by 10 per level. This means Tristana is a champion that gets stronger towards the end of the game. A marksman with extra range is very meaningful. Can join the attack from afar, avoiding putting yourself in danger.

RAPID FIRE RAPID FIRE

Increase attack speed by 50%. This is the skill for Tristana to deal damage. Interacts very well with skill 3. Also helps Tristana farm minions effectively.

ROCKET JUMP ROCKET JUMP

Jump to the target location and deal magic damage, slow enemies. Killing or detonating Explosive Charge will reset the cooldown. This skill can be used to attack or escape. Can jump over walls, generally this skill increases Tristana’s mobility.

Here I have an important note that you have to remember. That is, this skill will be reset if you detonate Explosive Charge. I will place Explosive Charge on the first enemy and then shoot from afar 1-2 bullets to accumulate. Then jump into the enemy to deal damage. In case of being disadvantaged, the jump skill has also been reset. Enough for me to do it again and get out safely.

EXPLOSIVE CHARGE EXPLOSIVE CHARGE

Passive: Enemies around will take damage if they stand near the target that Tristana kills. This passive is very good especially in the laning phase. Can deal damage to enemy champions without having to target them. Just choose the time when the enemy champion stands near the minion with low health, kill that minion and make the enemy champion take damage.

Active: Place a bomb on an enemy or turret, each basic attack or skill will increase the damage of the bomb. The explosion range on the turret will be farther than on the enemy champion.

BUSTER SHOT BUSTER SHOT

Deal magic damage and knock back the target. I will use this skill when I am sure I will kill the enemy. Because of the knockback nature, if used too early, it will help the enemy escape. Conversely, if you need to run away, this is a very useful skill.

How to play Tristana

Playing Tristana is easy. This is a champion that depends on furniture, so it needs more gold at the beginning of the game to start a business, so take the initiative to gently beat the emotions mainly to earn money to pay bills.

By the time you have enough items, you can satisfy the pleasure of farming life instead of farming soldiers.

Early game

Keep Rocket Jump in case you don't know the direction of the enemy team's jungle and use it when you need a kill.

To clear minions quickly, practice last hitting minions with low health to explode damage to surrounding minions.

Besides, get to the lane early and give yourself a bit of an advantage by killing the ranged minions first. Even in the process of farming minions, try to destroy the ranged minions first.

The reason when you kill minions will create a small explosion, if the enemy champion is trying to get behind the defeated minion, they will take damage.

Late game

At this point Tristana has reached the threshold of strength. Both in terms of range and best damage level. In combat, whenever you have the opportunity, take advantage to destroy the enemy champion with low health. Calculate enough damage every time you jump in because if you successfully defeat the enemy you will have time to cool down to jump out of the danger zone immediately.
