Lies. Utter lies. Are we talking about the same Tristana?
Tristana is fine as is, going by the suggested item build (plus a couple of potions here and there)
Solo to start with. Keep pushing until you run out of potions/heal spells.
In-game build: Boots +2HP/1MP potion to start, then health sword, upgrade boots to beserk, get yellow crossed swords (can't remember name), then mallet, upgrade to frozen mallet, finish Phantom Dancer, then get +crit sword and cleaver. If you still have money, buy more phantoms.
Not at all squishy (many times I've laned alongside "tank" heroes and had more health than them at same level) and damage is fine too. Mspd if you get those items is very good as well. Ulti is fine - jump over the enemy and juggle him back to your teammates/further from their tower/into your tower.
For runes, I've stacked critchance and evade, and have an assortment of others. Also stacked masteries in those things. Heal and revive with their respective masteries (although shouldn't have to use second all that much)
Ended up with 22/3, and then 11/10/12.
