This guide is for new players using Udyr even if your not new and dont know how to jungle with Udyr you will get a few tips.

First off.

Starting items: I like to go with Cloth armor and Health pot x5, Some people say you can get a vampire scepter. I havent tried

Game Items in order:
Mandreds Razor ASAP
Boots of Mobility. ( they make it simple to get around map esp with bear ill explain later in the guide)
Malady
Last Whisper
Timat
Starks fevor
After this finish mandreds razor. If you have time get a Tri-Force also.

Skill Rotation
Turtle
Pheonix
Turtle
Pheonix
Bear
Bear

- From here on out do whatever... I only use Turtle Late game when im running away or Remotly low on Health, When going for champion kills you will want to start with Bear stance, toggle between that and Pheonix stance As fast as possible. Also when your jungling MAKE sure your allways spamming Bear stance, As the + run speed helps ALOT.

Begging of game:
Udyr is a very weak hero early game, You will get stomped in a fight alone, Unless your oppent is new. You will want to get


Turtle Stance:

  • Activation - Udyr gains a temporary shield that absorbs damage.
  • Persistent Effect - Udyr's attacks cannot crit, but he restores his health and mana equivalent to a percentage of his damage dealt.
As your first move.This move is very helpful early game, You will need it to start off. You will want to toggle this as soon as its up again, If you dont have a full page of runes or are new to the Udyr, The New Jungle King. I would recommend getting 1-2 players to help you out on the first Lizard. It will make things a lot smoother. After you Kill your first lizard move on to the NON Vampire creeps. Kill these off and you should be level two. Now the move you will want to get next is


Phoenix Stance:
  • Activation - Udyr sends out pulsing waves of fire dealing damage to nearby foes for 5 seconds.
  • Persistent Effect - Every third attack, Udyr engulfs enemies in front him in flame.
Monkey's Agility (Passive) - Entering a stance grants Udyr a temporary buff that increases his attack speed by 12% and dodge chance by 6%. This effect can stack.

This is were jungling gets fun, you now can toggle. You will want to switch off between pheonix and turtle asap.

You Will want to circle the map Farming only on the lower creeps, Thats right no golems or Lizards until you have mandreds. I just farm until im out of health pots and cant anymore. After your 4 Go back to base, Pick up your mandreds and FARM FARM FARM.

At level 7 You will be able to kill just about any lane. MAKE SURE YOU PING FIRST. But remember NEVER try to gank without the Lizard buff. Until late game.

Other than that, Ask if anyone needs a gank if not pick off low heros under half. Other than that FARM YOUR BUTT OFF.

Udyr is THE JUNGLE KING.

Now if your run into another Udyr or Warwick at low Level if you can take them. do it. Other than that. Just run and bail. No need to ruin the game because you got spoted at Level 1-4

Rate my Guide please. 1-10.

This is my First one, I will be doing more just request it and i will make one.

Guide seems ok it will probably work but I don't think Udyr is that great at jungling and the resulting dude kinda sucks.

I give you a 6.

I know you spend alot of time on this, so i wont critique you much. Good guide, solid easy jungling pattern slightly slower though.

I enjoy soloing Mana at level 1 using Phoenix stance (Every third attack is almost the same as a crit).

Mastery spec, 8/1/21 or 9/21/0 (Havent had time to mess with a 21/-/- build yet)
Summoner abilities: Smite, Heal or Rally

Once I have mana golem, that allows you to flip between turtle and phoenix constantly. Pile drive some small creep mobs then at 3-5 hit up lizard.

Phoenix
Turtle

Doing this I was able to keep up with the solo lane levels without a problem.

Actually i whiped it together in about 30. was gonna go to sleep and update it tommorow. on some of the errors and put in rune / mastery specs. I just wanted to whipe together a fast guide to get some players out of the Udyr sucks and into seeing his potential

I think you are underrating Tiger stance. When switched on it does pretty good dmg. Combo'd with bear and tiger back and forth its good dmg.

Except ANY armor makes it completely useless.

One thing that Udyr has taught me is that a lot of LoL players don't understand how armor works in this game. It isn't like there is a threshold that you need to overcome before you start dealing damage. Armor takes away a percentage of all damage regardless of how it is split up. As far as I can tell the split into 3 caused by Tiger stance has no effect on the total damage done. It may help with last hitting creeps because of the changed attack animation and, if each mini-hit figures dodge chance separately then it'll help mitigate damage lost from lucky dodges (if you only attack once someone with 10% dodge has a 10% chance to avoid all your damage, with tiger-stance their chance to avoid some of the damage is greater but their chance to avoid it all is less).

Rounding or Truncation of damage could cause a very significant decrease in damage output with Tiger Stance.
