Tristana is a champion in League of Legends.[1]

Abilities

Edit

Draw a Bead

Draw a Bead.png

Innate: Tristana's basic attacks, Explosive Charge Explosive Charge and Buster Shot Buster Shot gain Range icon.png 0 − 136 (based on level) bonus range, for a total of 525 − 661 (based on level).

Info
  • No additional details.

Edit

Rapid Fire

Rapid Fire.png

Active: Tristana empowers her cannon, gaining Attack speed icon.png bonus attack speed for 7 seconds.

Bonus Attack Speed:
50 / 65 / 80 / 95 / 110%

Info
  • Rapid Fire is a non-refreshing buff that will not update on rank-up.

Edit

Rocket Jump

Rocket Jump.png

Active: Tristana Dash.png jumps to the target location, dealing magic damage to all nearby enemies on impact and Slow icon.png slowing them by 60%.

Magic Damage:
95 / 145 / 195 / 245 / 295 (+ 50% AP)
Slow Duration:
1 / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 / 3

Scoring a Damage rating.png takedown against an enemy Champion icon.png champion or detonating Explosive Charge Explosive Charge at maximum stacks on a champion resets Rocket Jump's Cooldown icon.png cooldown.

Rocket Jump will cast at max range if cast beyond that.

Info
  • Tristana can still use her abilities, summoner spells, and item actives during Rocket Jump.
  • Rocket Jump's dash speed depends on the distance of the jump. Close-ranged jumps are much shorter while long-ranged jumps leave Tristana in the air significantly longer.
  • If Tristana has less than 850 movement speed, a full-range Rocket Jump (including its cast time) will make her arrive quicker at its destination than walking at this speed could.
  • Killing Command Hallucinate.png clones or detonating Explosive Charge Explosive Charge on them also resets Rocket Jump's cooldown.
    • The former may be unintended.

Edit

Explosive Charge

Passive: Enemies explode when killed by Tristana's basic attacks, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies.

Magic Damage:
55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+ 25% AP)
Explosive Charge.png

Active: Tristana launches an explosive charge at the target enemy, including Turret icon.png turrets, which upon arrival attaches to them for 4 seconds. Afterwards, the charge detonates, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies, including turrets. The explosion radius is doubled when the charge is placed on a turret.

Minimum Physical Damage:
70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 (+ 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 / 150% bonus AD) (+ 50% AP)

Tristana's basic attacks On-hit icon.png on-hit and abilities against the target increase Explosive Charge's damage by 30%, stacking up to 4 times for a maximum 120% increase, upon which the charge also detonates instantly.
The charge's total damage is additionally increased by 0% − 33.3% (based on critical strike chance).

Bonus Damage Per Stack:
21 / 24 / 27 / 30 / 33 (+ 15 / 22.5 / 30 / 37.5 / 45% bonus AD) (+ 15% AP)
Maximum Physical Damage:
154 / 176 / 198 / 220 / 242 (+ 110 / 165 / 220 / 275 / 330% bonus AD) (+ 110% AP)

If Buster Shot Buster Shot is used to apply the last stack, the detonation will instead be delayed until the end of the Airborne icon.png knock back or the 4 seconds expire.

Tristana will attempt to basic attack the target afterwards.

Info
  • Explosive Charge's cast time is always 100% of the caster's attack windup time.
    • At base attack speed, Tristana's attack windup is 0.225625 seconds.
    • An easy formula to calculate the cast time is [ 0.14801 seconds divided by total attack speed ].
    • Reducing Tristana's attack speed via Cripple icon.png attack speed reductions also increases Explosive Charge's cast time by the same fraction.
    • It is calculated from Tristana's total attack speed after cap (2.5) and floor (0.2), making the maximum possible cast time 0.759 seconds.
  • Tristana will be automatically ordered to basic attack the target.
  • Explosive Charge's initial application deals 0 physical damage, triggering Turret icon.png turret aggro.
  • All explosions by Explosive Charge's passive count as the same cast instance. Every cast of the active is a separate cast instance:
    • Hitting a champion with the passive by killing a nearby unit, casting the active on them (see note above) and landing a basic attack against them triggers Electrocute Electrocute.
    • Hitting a champion with the passive by killing a nearby unit, casting the active on them and hitting them again with the Passive by killing another nearby unit does not trigger Electrocute Electrocute.
  • Counter Strike.png Dodge, Spirit's Refuge.png block and Blind icon.png blind all prevent Explosive Charge's stack application via basic attacks.
  • Explosive Charge's detonation will deal damage to the primary target even if they have become Untargetable icon.png untargetable.
  • Explosive Charge's stacks from basic attacks are applied as an on-hit effect and will therefore interact with Guinsoo's Rageblade's Guinsoo's Rageblade's Phantom Hit and Runaan's Hurricane's Runaan's Hurricane's bolts.
  • If the target becomes Untargetable icon.png untargetable, Death.png dies, or is too far away or no longer in Sight icon.png sight during the cast time, this ability will cancel but does not go on Cooldown icon.png cooldown nor pay its cost (if applicable).

Edit

Buster Shot

Buster Shot.png

Active: Tristana fires a massive cannonball at the target enemy that upon arrival deals magic damage to them and Airborne icon.png knocks back and Stun icon.png stuns all enemies around them, including the target, for up-to 0.75 seconds, during which they are Reveal icon.png revealed.

Magic Damage:
300 / 400 / 500 (+ 100% AP)
Knockback Distance:
600 / 800 / 1000

Info
  • Applies Disintegrate.png spell damage to the primary target and deals 0 Umbra Blades.png default damage to secondary targets.
  • Tristana will automatically be ordered to attack the target of Buster Shot.
  • Buster Shot's Airborne icon.png displacement direction is based on Tristana's location at the end of the cast time.
    • The primary target is pushed in a straight line away from that location, but the knockback distance and speed may be impeded by terrain.
    • Secondary targets are displaced parallel to the primary target's displacement.
  • The Airborne icon.png Stun icon.png crowd control is removed early when the forced movement stops.
    • At normal knockback distance and knockback speed, this changes the duration of the disable to circa 0.4 / 0.5 / 0.6 seconds by default.
  • Unstoppable icon.png Displacement immunity will also resist the application of the Stun icon.png stun.
  • If the target becomes Untargetable icon.png untargetable, Death.png dies, or is too far away or no longer in Sight icon.png sight during the cast time, this ability will cancel but does not go on Cooldown icon.png cooldown nor pay its cost (if applicable).

Original
RP 585
21.02.2009
While many other yordles channel their energy into discovery, invention, or just plain mischief-making, Tristana was always inspired by the adventures of great warriors. She had heard much about Runeterra, its factions, and its wars, and believed her kind could become worthy of legend too. Setting foot in the world for the first time, she took up her trusty cannon Boomer, and now leaps into battle with steadfast courage and optimism.
