Introduction

Tristana is one of the scariest champions to deal with late game. She is also incredibly strong in the early game; specifically at level 2 and 6. Tristana should be played very aggressively early game, passively mid game, and cautiously end game.

Pros

Longest attack range of any other AD Ranged champion at level 18
Has a jump escape for ganks or initiation slow
Heal debuff that applies damage over time
Large burst damage

Cons

Short attack range at low levels
Hard to know when to jump in

Tristana has a weak early laning phase, so you want 9 points in the defensive tree. You need this to farm in lane and sustain while trading. The 21 points in the offensive tree is for trading and damage latemid game.



Alternative Mastery:

If you think that you dont need that much attack speed and need more dmg on minions, this mastery is the right choice for you.

Summoner Spells



Explanation:
The reason why i go for and but not and its because Cleanse is a useful spell against a lane or team with heavy CC.However, if your lane does not have cc and the rest of their team does, don't assume that this is a good option. Most of the time in teamfights if you take some sort of crowd control for even a second, you can find yourself out of the fight. I'd only recommend this against a heavy cc team with cc in your lane. [NOTE: Her Skill Explosive Shot is also the same as ignite thats why i chose cleanse over ignite.]

Skills

Passive: Draw a Bead

Explanation:
This Passive is really good at lv 18 because once u hit an enemy under turrent u wont get any turrent aggro.




Q: Rapid Fire

Explanation:

Hit's fast with everything that comes your way with this immense attack speed



W: Rocket Jump

Explanation:

This skill is both good for slowing enemies and escaping if u lose a teamfight.[USE THIS WISELY]



E: Explosive Shot

Explanation:

Just like ignite but oni comes from the gun not from summoners spell.


R: Buster Shot

Explanation:

If ur support is either an alistar or a blitzcrank this ultimate might come in handy :D.

Item Builds

Early Game



Get Doran's Blade when u have a support that has sustain.

This is the perfect Choice and its also safe.

If you were forced to back in the early games u should get One

or

Two

If you feel that u have an easy lane to win and have lots of gold before your 1st trip back get straight away if not get and

Mid Game


Your goal on the 20 min mark is to get .

Late Game



This is one of the most recommended item for tristana.


Quoted from above: As of December 22, 2012... This item is ridiculously strong vs. most team compositions. It gives a nice amount of health, as well as attack damage and it's passive stacks quickly with Tristana. Though I don't recommend this as a priority, I wouldn't put it down as a strong item when the opposition has a lot of armor.


Nice if the enemy team has tons of armor, but now i think the black cleaver has dominated almost every item.


Get this item last on the build because its actually not really needed for trist as she is far back from everyone. However, if a few times you find yourself being the last person remaining and dying to another person by a small margin in teamfights, it may be a good choice to pick this up.


must for most ADC's. With Tristana's ability to move around the map she shouldn't really need it. Of course there are enemies with a lot of movement speed as well which can cause you to get focused easily and not be able to escape. This can be a great pickup regardless of your playstyle.

Team Fights

Attack the champion closest to you, and if your teammates are diving in on the enemy carries, jump in with your Rocket Jump and make sure that they die in order to get another Rocket Jump.

Positioning: You should never be caught with Tristana. You should focus your time knowing when CC is up or on cooldown for nearby enemy champions. At the very last possible second you want to use your Flash skill to evade CC. Continue hitting the closest champion, using your auto attack and then use your Rocket jump when another incoming CC is about to hit you. The best Trist players will have the fastest reaction times to evade crowd control (remember that getting stunned will almost always end up killing you. Jumping too early you will sacrifice doing less damage to your enemies, jumping too late then you will be caught in stuns and die quickly. You should practice using your evasive skills/summoners at the last possible second.


Tips and Tricks

  • You can use your ultimate while you're jumping, ensuring an escape or allowing you to push an enemy into your team mid-jump.

  • Rocket Jump lands quicker the shorter the target range. If over a large distance, Tristana seems to slow down due to the wider jump curve, while melee-range casts are nearly instantenous.

  • Enemies can still attack or cast spells on her while Tristana is using her Rocket Jump. CC will take place when she lands, while champion abilities such as Singed's Fling or Volibear's Rolling Thunder will place Tristana behind them, as if she never used her Rocket Jump.

  • ristana can still attack, cast spells or abilities and use items during Rocket Jump.

Farming and Laning Phase

  • Farming: Tristana is really good at farming because of her skill Explosive Shot (E). If Tristana takes a solo lane, she can just max her E skill to clear minions as fast as she can, then push the turret. Additionally, try to harass your enemy champion by your Explosive Shot when the enemy champion get closer. Always save your Rocket Jump (W) for escape when enemy jungle ganks and never use it to help farm or harass enemies.

  • Pre-Laning Phase: For a level 1 fight, get your Rocket Jump (W) first. Rocket Jump (W) will be reset once your get a kill or assist. Therefore, cast your Rocket Jump immediately after it resets, the 60% movement speed slow is extremely strong.

  • The Laning Phase: Trying to harass your enemy champions when they are going to last hit.
It will happens in 3 ways:
  • The enemy champions get hit if they still try to last hit.
  • The enemy champions attack you back, so they lose that last hit and trade damage.
  • The enemy champions go back to dodge your harassment, so they lose last hit and nobody takes damage.

Support Matchups

- Blitzcrank pull and u ulti back to your turrent = a GG for the enemy adc.


- Taric can stun the target and ensure that Tristana gets her full skill burst on the enemy.


- Tristana and Alistar can knock people around while doing tons of damage. Alistar can poke and zone well in lane. He is the perfect support for tristana.


- Leona can initiate when and where she wants to. But she cant poke alot in lane cuz she's a melee.
