Yesterday I was playing Tryndamere top. We had a large advantage and managed to destroy everything up to the nexus tower. During the final minutes of the game I decided to fountain dive the enemy Lux that just respawned but despite activating my ultimate, I died really quickly.

Isn't Tryndamere's ultimate called Undying Rage?

In the wiki it says: Tryndamere becomes completely immune to death for 5 seconds, refusing to be reduced below 30/50/70 Health and instantly gaining 50/75/100 Fury.

So why did I die in the fountain? Shouldn't I be unkillable for 5 seconds?

The fountain will attack using a beam that deals 1000 true damage every 0.5 seconds. This beam will ignore most immunity effects including Tryndamere's ultimate. Note that the damaging beam will also ignore shields and revival effects.

The only effects not ignored are the following:

  • Untargetability (Fizz E, Vladimir Pool)
  • Stasis (Zhonya's, Bard R)

And aggro can be traded like usual, meaning champions that go untargetable are dropped from the turret aggro table as usual.


  • Note, that this effect was only added to the laser after the game was released for quite a while. In an earlier state of the game, Tryndamere could easily tower-dive with hiw ultimate. Not Tryndamere, but basically what I was refering to Commented Aug 22, 2019 at 9:27

  • @XtremeBaumer Yeah I remember that^^ Although that got removed around the start of season two. (Also the game was still pretty broken back then).
