How it works

  1. This build is all about Imperial Mandate.
  2. And also all about slows.
  3. You support through disrupting fights, being annoying, Slowing/Healing/Buffing and soaking damage.
  4. This build is about being super annoying, slowing and knocking back your enemies with E and applying Imperial Mandate debuff AND healing your allies with Font of Life. At the same time!

How to play

  1. You rush Imperial Mandate. That is only mandatory item for this build. Then you need to adapt to an enemy team.
  2. Your CC triggers Glacial Augument that slows AOE. All Slows trigger Font of Life AND Imperial Mandate, healing and buffing your allies.
  3. Since LoL Patch 14.1 Imperial Mandate is changed. Now you need your team to proc it to deal any damage. So you need to play a little bit differently. Do not spam mindlessly. Try coordinating it with your team - when they are about to poke or when they go in.
  4. Font of Life heal can trigger various support items, like Ardent Censer or Staff of Flowing Water or even Moonstone Renewer!
  5. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  6. As Trundle, you have really great engaging/catching people off tool in your Pillar of Ice (E). Do not wait for 'special moment' to use it.
  7. Pillar of Ice (E) can be also used as great peeling ability. However be careful, as this might trap your ally if not used wisely.
  8. Your Q applies Imperial Mandate (and all benefits mentioned above) as well!
  9. Your Pillar of Ice (E) works with Serpent's Fang.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can stop an enemy team from pushing your turrets with your Pillar of Ice (E). Everyone died, and the enemy tries to push? Just put Pillar of Ice on minions' path.
  2. Your Subjugate (R) shreds Armor and Magic Resist by 40%. It is often recommended to use that on enemy tank. This way, you are getting more tanky and can go into fights. Or Subjugate (R) enemy tank to burst him down quickly when he comes at your team. Or even some bruiser tries to go all in? Well, Subjugate him.
  3. Your Pillar of Ice (E) knocks enemies back from its center. This implies some cool interactions like with Samira's Passive or with Yasuo's Ultimate!
Riot
  1. Trundle excels at fighting within his Frozen Domain. Try to draw enemies onto it.
  2. Use Subjugate to soften a powerful enemy tank or to create a target for your team to focus fire.
  3. Chomp is good for lowering the physical damage of enemies; try to focus it on enemy physical damage dealers.
