A little background: I started playing League of Legends at around the start of Season 4, I did my placements and finished Silver 4. I hovered around Silver 3 for the entirety of the season. I ended Gold 5 after a friend of mine agreed to duo with me and I stopped playing ranked until S5.When season 5 started I did my placements, went 5-5 ( I think ~ ) and got placed Silver 4. At the beginning of S5, I decided that I had to main a champ. I'm a fan of Trick2G and his Udyr playstyle seemed to fit me really well. So I'm like hell why not play Udyr. At first I was feeding in normals but I persevered. I never stopped playing my main and soon enough I was carrying normals and ready to hop in ranked.
How to play Udyr: There are many ways to play Udyr. I'll be covering the two main ones that got me to gold and platinum subsequently. Keep in mind I'm broke, lol. So runes were pretty hard to get for me.
Tiger Stance AD Udyr
- Masteries: 21/9/0 AD/CD
Your core is basically : Warrior enchantment, Trinity Force, Frozen Heart, Righteous Glory ( if ahead ) or Warrior enchantment into Phage -> Build either Warden's mail ( vs AD comp ) or Spectre's Cowl ( vs AP comp )
- What I did to win
Phoenix Stance Devourer Udyr a.k.a the Godyr
Same Runes and Masteries. ( hey, i was and still am poor IP-wise ) this is what got me to platinum.
Start R->W->R->E then proceed to max R->W->E->Q Do not take a point in Q until necessary ( level 16 )
Here's exactly what I did at the beginning of every game on my road to plat as Udyr.
Start gromp -> Take Blue -> Take Wolves( 1 hp pot ) -> Take Toucans ( :) ) -> Take Red( 1 hp pot ) - > Take Scuttlecrab ( in river ) -> Gank the lane next to the crab you just took. If gank is succesful, hooray, if it isn't, too bad. DO NOT BACK. Keep farming until you have enough for Devourer enchantment completely(1850 Gold). -> Proceed to take your blue buff, then scuttles-> then solo the dragon. If you're bot side, take a mana pot when you back, take red, then take dragon. Make sure no one is coming. If you want to be safe, farm up an extra 100 gold for a pink.
I did this every game, and it was 95% of the time the same exact thing.
Phage first into Tri Force, either Tenacity Boots, Mobi Boots or Swifties. Once you get Tri force you're pretty much almost full stacks, get 30 stacks and proceed to burn people with your 2 hit Phoenix Proc. ( That stuff hurts man ) After that you want to build tanky so take Frozen Heart and/or Sunfire ( synergizes well with your R pulse flame damage ).
So, Tiger Udyr helped me get to Gold 5 and Phoenix Udyr helped me get to Plat 5. Hopefully a new Udyr emerges and that will be my ticket to Diamond. I hoped you read this guide and that you learned atleast 1 thing new.
tl;dr please read this LOL, a lot of time went into this but if you insist : Tiger Dyr and Godyr builds to gain elo, I guess .

EDIT2: VERY IMPORTANT ! ! !
When you fight as Udyr, make sure to move in between your auto-attacks. i.e : Move towards enemy using bear stance (movement/stun) -> stun the target -> WALK AHEAD , you bascially walk a little bit towards where you think they will go -> switch stance -> attack -> walk ahead -> attack . This is important because if you walk ahead, you basically negate their flash/escape abilities because you're going where they potentially might go. So if they do go there, you're already there yourself and you're still in auto-attack range. Should do this for every champion. But it's very important on Udyr.
