The 2023 Pre-Season Meta will revolve around tank champions, and Udyr building AD is one of the few options to counter them.
The Pre-Season meta is on tanky items. In the matches of League of Legends, you will see many resistance generals, gladiators or even … magicians on the Heart of Kong Than, Jak’Sho to become a monster in the late game, both buffalo and medium. Deals infinite damage.
So the current meta revolves around champions that can abuse new tank equipment and champions that can counter tankers like Vayne, Varus to Giant Killer, Nameless Sword….
However, there is a strange, strange option that many people may have overlooked when choosing a squad to counter the blood buffalo monsters – that is Udyr.
For those who don’t know, the way to build Udyr from the rework to now is just full resistance and combined with a little AP equipment. Because the amount of AD ratio in Q (STVL) is so low in the early stages, very few people choose to build Udyr this way.
When Empowered, Thunderclaw’s Claw deals 2%-5% (based on level) + (3% per 100 AD) of the target’s maximum health as physical damage. Also deals magic damage equal to 1.5%-3% (based on level) + (0.8% per 100 AP).
However, in patch 12.18 and 12.19, this ratio was adjusted to be more appropriate, making Udyr SMCK again one of the strongest builds against the tank meta. Udyr can destroy tanks very quickly, even dealing up to 150% damage according to the enemy’s maximum health after just 2 light hits:
The tank-breaking Udyr build will focus on Lethal stats with Dark Claw, Dominik’s Crossbow first, then Pirate Gun and Sword of Doom + 2 items that increase AD as much as possible.
Regarding the rune board, you can use the standard board when going to the top lane or going to the jungle with Conqueror. Of course, if you want to be more playful, you can choose Rain of Swords to hit 3 Boosts as quickly as possible.
Of course, if you go in this direction, the player will be quite sluggish because of the lack of resistance. And you have to choose the right direction to enter the fight if you don’t want to be controlled to death by your husband, because Udyr can only run in and hit the opponent’s main force.
Overall, Udyr full SMCK is one of the funniest options to destroy tanks in the Pre-Season period. If you have a chance, try it right in the game.
