So many teams run 2-3 ignites (or more) not to mention the smart people that get an executioners calling (even worse!) that even though I run Cleanse 100% of the time there just isn't enough cleanse to save you in most team fights.
Everyone who's ever played Tryn with any seriousness has experienced the teamfight roflstomp that can occur when you pop your ultimate. Let's face it. Sometimes, we're gonna die. But look to the clouds, and find that silver lining...
If teams are blowing multiple ignites/stuns/exhausts on you in a team fight, that's less CC the rest of your team has to deal with.
I've played several games where I go spinning into a team fight expecting to die... But, more often than not, I still come out of it with at least 2 kills...

The main key to Tryndamere is using the Spirit visage. It totally improves your bloodlust skill. It's cheap. Lowers cooldowns. Gives you some MR and health regen. It improves all incomming heals from your teamates too. It's a boss item. I get basic boots& zeal & spirit visage before anything else. Then I get a crit cape - this is the best path to the god-mode state you referred to.
Trynd is so much better right now since the last 2 patches. I can actually play agressive at level 1 against good players.
First: I agree. Tryn is in a good place right now. I'm honestly hoping that the QQ about him will stop soon. If he gets many more buffs, he'll be OP again, and the nerf bats will be quick to follow.
Second: Convincing me to pick up any survivability items before Infinity Edge is going to be a tough sell... I won't disagree with your assertion that Spirit Visage is ball'n like Lebron, but I will point out that you lose a lot of damage, and delay your ramp up time even more by picking one up as early as you say you do.
Third: Boots... I certainly won't disagree on boots. I don't always get zerker greaves. I often do.... but not every game. That said, if you (or anyone reading) is going to cut zerker greaves from the build, just be sure to pick up some attack speed somewhere else. (Zeal is a fine choice)
