He's extremely viable and has been used in the world championships. He does require a bit more of setup than Graves team-wise.
Since I main support for a buddy for duo que, the Elesia's Miracle change is something that sort of stuck out for me in the changes, along with the HoG removal since it was usually the first item I would buy...but that Elesia's Miracle...yum...that is all
Kog is certainly a top tier pick, and is used fairly often. I will agree with you though that masters is a pretty meh item on him. It seems like it would synergize well, but it really doesn't.
added tiamat/ravenous hydra.
I am actually terrified at the thought of a Tryndamere with a Ravenous Hydra if you are in solo queue and don't shit CC on him O.o
holy shit look at Hydra
I've been practicing alot of Tristana, as despite Fiora being my favourite champ by FAR, melee dps just get destroyed in team fights.....
I think it's time to get Fiora out of storage between Ravenous Hyrda, Blade of the Ruined King, a fully stacked Blood Thirster and her Passive I don't think ANYONE will be able to shift her from lane
also... Hydra + Crescent + Fiora Ulti ssoooooo much healing!
Check out the blog I write for LEGENDARY Indie Label Flicknife Records:
Blog Nine is live! It's like Mambo number five, but FOUR better! So read it now.
inb4 Tryndamere OP.
Seriously though Tryndamere has always been somewhat viable if you're last pick and the enemy team has no major CC. He can go in, ultimate when needed, dish out damage like a damn god, and then spin out for victory.
Just imagine what he will be like now.
I'm looking forward to seeing how it works. It will certainly make melee caries more viable than they are currently. It's going to be a weird game where people build tiamats....
The ranged "semi-equivalent" of Tiamat has been revealed!
Applying Grievous Wounds on three targets now with MF's W active? Yes please! I do fear the part where Graves can keep his AS steroid up nigh-permanently with that.Runaan’s Hurricane
+60% Attack Speed
UNIQUE Passive: Your basic attacks fire minor bolts at 2 nearby targets, each dealing (50% of Total Attack Damage) physical damage. These apply on-hit effects.
updated the OP with the new item.
I am super excited about that. I main ranged ad, so any new item that directly effects ranged ads is really interesting. It's going to be a pretty crazy item I think. Though I wonder if it prioritizes champions, or if it goes for just the closest targets.
I really want to see an mf or something with lulu. That would be so much magic damage on hit!

I really like the idea behind the new item. AD carry builds have been way too stale lately. Since PD is also getting nerfs the champions that itemize hurricane well will probablly skip PD for it. Which will then lead to you having no actual crit outside of IE and green pot which means IE will no longer be a necessity and you can go for another item in its place, will be interesting to see how it turns out.
Worst case scenario PD/IE (with the PD nerfs) and Hurricane are both subpar item paths leading to Ez and Corki being overpowered since they don´t build PD or hurricane.
