I also do not have a problem chasing down other champions, because phage + ghost = win. Udyr is all about changing stances at the right time. If you have the mana, which I almost always never run out, you can stack your shield, stun, then aoe phoenix while doing good damage every third hit.

It is true that Udyr is very gear dependent, and I find this guide's list of items to be a good one. First game I played with this guide I went 11-1-5 against a premade of level 20s and up. Udyr success in my opinion relies solely on your ability to play. If you don't like his play style, then don't choose him.

you are right that udyr is a very skill based character. if you are good at reading people and can time turtle he's a tank without any items at all. I dont think he needs major changes. I used to really like phoenix udyr. Phantom Dancers+Rylai's Crystal Sceptre+Void Staff does terrible terrible things to people. I've found though that this is a mid-game build. Levels 10-14 being able to slow-chase like that is incredible, but after that he doesnt stack up.

Much more effective is going for a physical nuke. Turtle blocks their harass, bear gets you there, and tiger does 2.5 your dmg. Infinity edge+phantom dancers+runes makes 50-60% crit chance at 250%. So thats 200 atk power hitting as a 2 second DoT for x5 damage, every two seconds or so. With a last whisper thrown in it can almost kill ashe/twitch in one hit.

I also used to really like a phage, but unless you're building triforce there are better things to be getting.

I have buddies who usually cover mage/tank, so I have the luxury of going dps, but I think a 2500 dmg DoT attack is always useful.

This build doesnt really get going until the phantom dancers is done though. Keep in mind.

Oh, and the phoenix this build gets at lvl 12 comes with a 30-50% crit chance, which is really just as good as getting some AP.

Some people here are saying that Udyr is **** but I think that's not true at all. I've been playing with him for a while and I get lots of kills, and tend to win more than to lose.

Also I agree with the build. I always go for attack speed, and then I add in some CD reduction. The items I use aren't exactly the same, but they are similar. I'm glad someone is writing guides for Udyr, because there are very few out there.

I dont know why people come on this thread just to bash udyr.

Firstly, if you get owned with him its because you have no skill. He's much harder to use than teemo or ashe yes, but just as viable.

Secondly why are you even reading this if you dont plan to play him?

Does the initial tiger active attack crit? I usually ignore tiger for the most part, but I have always wondered about a crit build for udyr. I always was hesitant b/c of the 3x hit passive of tiger, which severely diminishes the potency of crits, but if that first damage multiplier can crit than it might be worthwhile to consider
