Much like the other champions in League, Udyr will use a range of items tailored to his situation in-game. But there are specific items that players will want to build to increase their chance at success while using Udyr.
Conqueror: In the tiger stance, Udyr is going to attack at a rapid pace, inflicting impressive damage onto enemy champions. Taking the Conqueror rune means that while Udyr is landing attacks on enemy champions, he’ll be building stacks that once full will grant the champion healing for 15 percent of the damage he deals against champions.
Triumph: Most jungle champions enter a lane to either pursue an enemy or deter them from taking out a turret. Triumph is going to reduce the risk of entering combat against multiple enemies by granting Udyr healing for 12 percent of his missing health after every successful takedown.
Legend: Alacrity: In the jungle, Udyr is going to be doing a lot of farming on monsters while also attempting to gain takedowns on enemy champions in the lanes. Doing either of these things is going to build up legend stacks with the use of the Legend: Alacrity rune.
Coup De Grace: Getting the jump on opponents in the lane will often see them forced to retreat, sometimes getting away on minuscule health. This rune is going to reduce their chances of doing so since it’ll grant Udyr bonus damage against enemy champions that are below 40-percent health.
Nimbus Cloak: Since Udyr will often be changing stances regularly to get the activation benefits of specific stances, such as the speed boost when entering bear stance, Nimbus Cloak is going to greatly assist in chasing enemies through a lane.
Celerity: This is another common rune for jungle champions. Celerity is going to increase the mobility of Udyr, allowing him to navigate around the map through the jungle and into the lanes at a faster pace.
Bonuses: +10-percent Attack Speed, +9 Adaptive Force, +6 Armor
Starting items Hunter’s Machete
A textbook choice for jungle champions, Hunter’s Machete is a particularly important starting item for Udyr. Without this item, gaining XP and gold in the jungle is made increasingly difficult.
The perfect partner to the Hunter’s Machete, Refillable Potion is another item that assists jungle champions with sustaining inside the jungle.
Core Items Stalker’s Blade – Warrior
A fully upgraded item stemming from the Hunter’s Machete, this item is going to substantially boost Udyr’s power and jungling ability. The weapon boasts stat increases of 60 attack damage and 10 percent cooldown reduction.
While Udyr is quite mobile at his base, acquiring boots is going to be important for the champion to navigate the map and be available to gank lanes in a time-sensitive manner. Ninja Tabi will grant the champion 45 bonus movement speed as well as 20 armor.
A perfect fit for a champion like Udyr, Trinity Force grants all-around stat increases that are extremely beneficial to AD champions.
