Got suckered in by the champion with no ult. I've seen him do well in dominion before, but i'll be durned if i can do well. Still futzing with what to max and what to build. Seems like most favor a tri-force (does everyone build one now?) but beyond that i'm rather clueless. I went all tank, did no deeps. Went deeps, got destroyed. Halps?

I play Udyr items as follows :
Hybrid marks, Armor seals, MR glyphs, Movement Quints (Could be changed)

Prospectors Blade and Boots
Ionian Boots (to spam Bear for movement and stances in general)
Consider a Vampiric scepter
Start Sheen into Trinity
Wit's End (possibly get this or Negatron earlier is enemy is AP strong)
either Frozen Heart or Randuins Omen (usually Randuins, get chainmail earlier if enemy is AD strong).

I don't find Udyr all that useful top, because he is incredibly easy to kite.

Bottom, however... he's a beast.

Although Ahri did tear me apart once, but I chalk that up to my own error.

You built tank, and did no DPS. You went DPS, and was ripped apart. Have you ever heard of balance? Udyr is a tanky DPS. You need both to play him effectively. Triforce, Sunfire Cape, Merc Treads, Wit's End...etc. All effective items. I also recommend working some CDR in there for shield spamming. Glacial Shroud, for example.

I'll give you a build I got from a fellow 1900 player. He just runs this build bot, maybe it works top (idk). Tried it myself bot, very happy. You can also run this without the full set of runes.

Runes:
All health regen reds, blues, and yellows
4.5% movement speed quits

Masteries:
can go either 9/21/0 or 0/21/9

Items:
Spirit Visage
Merc Treads or Tabi Boots (depending on who your facing bot)
Force of Nature
Randuins

extra cash:
Wits End, Sunfire, Odins veil, Zekes

Traditional pheonix build with lots of points in turtle stance. Push bot with promote revive and gg.

Phoenixdyr is more common in Dominion. You can push bottom harder in Phoenix stance and survive longer with the typically tanky Phoenix build. Dance between Phoenix and Turtle a lot.
