How to play

  1. You start with Guardian's Horn. Your #1 rush should be item that counters enemy team most (MR or Armor item). Get Jak'Sho as #2 item. Then adapt.
  2. Triumph is better overall (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  3. Guardian's Horn is a surprisingly good item for its price. You can keep it for very long time (or even have it as 6th item).
  4. 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.
  5. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

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.
