I've played Udyr for quite some time now and have always got TriForce as my first main item, but looking at it more closely TriForce looks a little weak.

My build goes: (Tiger Udyr BTW)
Phage > Ninja Tabi/Merc > TriForce > Madreds/Bloodthrister (depends on the team) > Madreds/Blood/Cleaver > Tank Item (Most games don't last this long)

TriForce seems like a tankish/DPS item and isn't really necessary. I've notice that most games I'm getting like 2x more assist than kills and my kills are usually 3-7. Should I go a different build?

Tri force is a solid item on Udyr. The art of getting kills is hard, you have to time your Tiger stance properly for that burst, but otherwise he isn't really good at getting killing blows, just training people or cleaning up fights.

I used to run standard tri force build, but have followed others footsteps in running an Innervating Locket. With his spam of abilities, the group potential is ridiciulous. Max Pheonix and Turtle, you can just stay in fights and be an amazing asset.

oops.

Edit: I've never used triforce on Udyr but it seems like a decent all around item, i personally go for brutalizer and black cleaver after boots and it ramps up your burst rather quickly if you have full armor pen runes and you max tiger by level 9.

tri force and sheen don't quite work for tiger udyr, as it increases his damage by that 120% of his base, splits it into 1/3 of the damage and then only applies to the first hit

GRANTED, triforce will still proc properly in bear and turtle, but typically it just ends up reducing your kill potential early game

I believe madred's does this too, but haven't fully tested it yet (almost positive razor act's like this, but not sure on bloodrazor)

it shouldn't be first item but it is a nice late game item.

Don't go DPS Udyr.. Locket -> Tabi/Merc -> Aegis -> Sheen -> W/e

Another rather good item build is:

Banshees - Ninjas/Mercurys - Frozen mallet - Starks or Atmas

Gives you >3000 life in the end. And i do not see the point anymore in investing the money in locket since the nerf to 4 seconds and no more minion healing. Trinity is simply too expensive.

Locket Udyr is what you should be doing.
