Last person I would think to get this on would be Trynd .. isn't it only like 25 attack damage even at one health? An extra shield would probably just get wasted due too the instinct to ultimate when you're about to die ...

wow... your good at math arnt you...

here is the deal, with 3300 gold it buys you 55 ad, plus 40 ad not 25. thats 95 ad which would make it the second largest AD item in the game. not only that it also offer +36 magic resist, and a really nice shield which counters ap burst counters and gives 400 shield.

This is obviously really strong on tryndamere because it synergises with his bloodlust and his ultimate.

so if we do the math.

at level 9 with a maw tryndamere will have...

84.8 base damage

+ 25 (from bloodlust base ad)

+ 35 (from bloodlust extra ad)

+ 55 (from Maw base ad)

+ 40 (from Maw extra ad)

+ 12 (masteries)

+ 17 (runes, marks and quints)

= 269 ad and he crits over 35% of the time

which means at level 9, he can hit for .... *drumroll*

585 damage! (including masteries)

and if he has berserker greaves on top of that which in all likely hood he will, he will have 1.2 attacks per second. Which means while his ult is active (5 seconds) he can hit 6 times.

therefore his average, accounting for critical hits at level 9 while his ult is active is ...

2428 damage.

which is enough to kill anyone. of course this doesnt account for armour or natural defenses, however the point is... thats legit, i dont care what anyone says that is really strong. the numbers dont lie. but take into account this is the best case scenario, so even if we say he only hits 3 times he still does over 1200 damage, thats pretty scary.
