Is there any way Udyr is viable for laning?

I am curious. I don't play Udyr much at all and have always seen him jungle, or fail hard in the lanes.

He does best in jungle.

But if u want to lane because u have a WW or some other reason why u cant jungle. Then I suggest just to boost "Turtle Stance" and maybe buy some mana gear at start.

Turtle stance makes you regain life and mana when u attack creeps. Just be fast to active the shield when enemy is casting some spells on you. They rather grow tired of trying to harass you when there own mana sinking while your own go up and dont get any real damage.

at least that's what the best lane udyr's I've seen do, lol. I seriously haven't seen a lane udyr since before season 1 though, so yea, that should say something about where he belongs.

Turtle stance makes him a beastly laner. Phoenix is for farming, but you don't get the time to stand in lane like you do in the jungle, so just go turtle + bear IMO.

He can be viable if you team up with a ranged champ or a great harasser...... Sona or zilean etc. whereas other melees are a big NONO.

But i dont recommend laning with udyr for someone only casually playing him. It requires a lot more skill than jungling.

Udyr is actually a really strong laner because of Turtle Stance. He's just a much, much, much better Jungler.

I had to take him up against ranged/mage quite a few times before when my team couldn't handle the constant harassing. Turtle is an excellent tool for walking up and eating hits in the face.
