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

Abilities[]

Edit

Draw a Bead

Draw a Bead

Innate: Tristana's basic attacks, Explosive Charge Explosive Charge and Buster Shot Buster Shot gain Range icon 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

Active: Tristana empowers her cannon, gaining Attack speed icon 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

Active: Tristana Dash jumps to the target location. Upon landing, she deals magic damage to nearby enemies and Slow icon slows them by 60% for a duration.

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

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

Tristana can cast any of her abilities during the dash. 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 clones or detonating Explosive Charge Explosive Charge on them also resets Rocket Jump's cooldown.
    • The former may be unintended.

Edit

Explosive Charge

Passive: Tristana's basic attacks are empowered to trigger an explosion when they kill the target, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies.

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

Active: Tristana tosses an explosive charge at the target enemy that attaches to them for 4 seconds. The charge then detonates, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies. Explosive Charge can target and damage Turret icon turrets, and explodes in a larger radius 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 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:
205 / 235 / 264 / 293 / 323 (+ 146.6 / 219.9 / 293.3 / 366.6 / 439.9% bonus AD) (+ 146.6% 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 knock back or the 4 seconds expire.

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 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 after the cast time.
  • Explosive Charge's initial application deals 0 physical damage, triggering Turret icon 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.
  • Jax Counter Strike old Dodge, Spirit's Refuge block and Blind icon 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 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 untargetable, Death dies, or is too far away or no longer in Sight icon sight during the cast time, this ability will cancel but does not go on Cooldown icon cooldown nor pay its cost (if applicable).

Edit

Buster Shot

Buster Shot

Active: Tristana fires a massive cannonball at the target enemy that deals magic damage. They and surrounding enemies are also Airborne icon knocked back and Stun icon stunned for up-to 0.75 seconds, during which they are Reveal icon revealed.

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

Info
  • Applies Disintegrate spell damage to the primary target and deals 0 Umbra Blades default damage to secondary targets.
  • Tristana will attempt to basic attack the target afterwards.
  • Buster Shot's Airborne icon 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 Stun icon 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 Displacement immunity will also resist the application of the Stun icon stun.
  • If the target becomes Untargetable icon untargetable, Death dies, or is too far away or no longer in Sight icon sight during the cast time, this ability will cancel but does not go on Cooldown icon cooldown nor pay its cost (if applicable).

Tristana OriginalSkin
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.
