DH5: 031 - Trundle, The Cursed Troll

Zounds! our thirty first highfive!

Stay out of the jungle folks! It's that creep from the cave Trundle

Trundle is another champ that came out amidst a pretty long stint of boring looking champs. I already took a quick crack at him, but honestly could probably draw rotting trolls all day. I like his giant club and the way he hobbles all over the place, and his colors are simple but effective as well. Trundle's spells are nice and nasty, with my favorite being a stony monolith rising out of the ground in a pool of filthy slime that slows down your foes. His story is a tad tragic as well because of his martyrdom to his tribe. All in all an interesting character design from multiple angles. I even picked Trundle for my Pony entry in a Forum contest.

In game I'm slowly getting the hang of Trundle, my jungling is getting tighter and i'm figuring out where to jump out and when to dive into their jungle to mess up the other team. I've seen Trundles pick up thorn mail and just ruin champs, and with his "invisible" ultimate, also bring down tanks. I say invisible because amidst the flashing of a team fight, a lot of players can't see his filthy dandruff DoT style ultimate and quickly forgets that their armor and magic resistance is down. Anyone Trundling? drop us a line! we'd love to hear from you in the comments below!

  1. I love your style, man! That newgrounds picture is sick. Plus I love Trundle! I'm an absolutely awful jungler, though. Keep up the great work!

  2. I like to use Trundle as a off-tank DPS laner his passive really helps you stay in a lane and he is a very obnoxious damager. Tank Trundle and Jungler Trundle are very good but I dont like jungling at all so I play him as a laner. No one really fit my style as well as Trundle did and I really like him becasue of that

  3. thanks Geromy! and jungling just takes a bit of practice to get the hang of, good luck!

    @Caleb: thanks for the comment! I usually don't see trundle laning around that much but that's awesome that he fits your playstyle so well. It's always awesome when a champion clicks for you!

  5. ndle is a champion that really grinds Mundo's gears. . .Contaminate + Pillar O filth makes him fast enough to outrun Mundo and his ultimate makes me cry. . .Trundle, specially with smite R scary!

    I am a big fan of Trundle as a lane partner though. . .

  6. Man another suggestion for lanedle! sounds like i might have to try that out now! and yeah trundle is pretty good at ruining mundo's day, especially after the nerfs to poor mundo's ultimate :(

  7. I love that picture! <3 And Trundle is my all time favourite character in lol <3
