I've changed my perspective on Udyr as a bottom laner since the inception of this guide. I no longer build him to capture bottom lane at all costs but rather build to become an ungankable bottom. I see this as the most effective way to play Udyr these days as no other champions parallels his survivability in bottom lane. He's still a force to be reckoned with though!

That being said, the item build below does not reflect what I always use now. You can peruse through my profile if you wish to emulate my item builds at high elo, but I caution, those builds are really for high elo only.



The Build

Against a physical champion:

Runes: MPen marks, flat Armor seals, CDR glyphs, and flat Armor quintessences.
Masteries: Standard 9/21/0
Summoner Spells: Garrison and Revive
Skills: Tu-Tu-P-P-Tu-P-B-... Adjust appropriately from here.
Start Items: 2xDoran's Shield + Boots of Speed + 2xHealth Potion --> Vamp Sceptre on first recall.
Core Items: *Frozen Heart* (vs Urgot/Yorick/Malzahar only), Spirit Visage, Sanguine Blade, Randuin's, *Thornmail* (vs Vayne/Caitlyn/Pantheon)

Against a magical champion:

Runes: MPen marks, HP5/level seals, flat MR glyphs, and flat HP5 quintessences.
Masteries: Standard 9/21/0
Summoner Spells: Garrison and Revive
Skills: Tu-Tu-P-P-Tu-P-B-... Adjust appropriately from here.
Start Items: 2xDoran's Shield + Boots of Speed + 2xHealth Potion OR Doran's Shield + Mantle + Boots of Speed + 4xHealth Potion --> Spirit Visage on first recall.
Core Items: Force of Nature, Wit's End, Sanguine Blade OR Frozen Mallet, Randuin's.

Want to Counter Udyr?

Viable Champions (Best to worst, left to right): Malzahar*, Urgot**, Yorick, Ryze, Singed, Cassiopeia, Nasus, Jarvan IV

Best Counter: Send a hard hitting AP (Ryze, Cassiopeia, etc) to lane and then get an AD (Wukong, Pantheon, etc) to gank or vice versa. It's impossible to effectively optimize your build unless you choose to neglect any offensive items.

*Must be played AD style and requires top notch skill. See Aparkhurst for a clinical.

**You have to rush Last Whisper to be viable.

Aoe casters have the easiest time of dealing with this build, though Melkor dunked with Yorick one time and it apparently worked really well.

Honestly I've been waiting for Riot to put Udyr on free week so I can try him, but with the success a few seem to be having with him I might buy him next. Though I don't have all the fancy HP/5 runes you use.
