Gangplank is a physcial DPS champion that is typically build with some tanky items and some crit. He has a pistol shot that applies on-hit effects and can crit (Essentially giving him 1 fed ranged carry auto whenever its up). Gangplanks ultimate can apply global pressure as well as gangplank having safety himself from most ganks and enemies with some oranges.
Grog Soaked Blade- Gangplank's basic attacks apply a poison debuff for 3 seconds that can stack up to 3 times. Each stack deals 3 + (1 x level) magic damage per second and slows the target by 7%.
This is a nice passive for duels and just overall utility. It has a slow which is nice for early lane fights, and it has a poison effect which I have gotten kills with before.
Parrrley- Gangplank shoots an enemy with his pistol, dealing 20 / 45 / 70 / 95 / 120 (+1.0 per attack damage) physical damage. Gangplank refunds half the mana used and gains 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 extra gold if Parrrley deals a killing blow. This ability can critically strike and applies on-hit effects, including his passive.
This skill allows gangplank to poke, farm, and be overall much more useful of a champion. This skill can crit, meaning critplank is a relatively popular build due to this skill.
Remove Scurvy- Gangplank consumes a large quantity of citrus fruit which removes any crowd control effects on him and heals him for 80 / 150 / 220 / 290 / 360 (+100% of ability power).
This skill is GPs safety. Its a cleanse AND sustain. This is really nice in duels for the effects it offers.
Raise Morale- (Passive): Permanently increases Gangplank's attack damage by 8 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 and his movement speed by 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 %. (Active): Gangplank fires into the air, disabling his passive boost but inspiring himself to gain an additional 12 / 19 / 26 / 33 / 40 attack damage and 8 / 11 / 14 / 17 / 20 % movement speed, with nearby allied champions receiving half that amount for 7 seconds. He regains the passive when the buff ends.
This skill is a good buff for your team, the passive component is really good for gp as the free stats are all good for top lane.
Cannon Barrage- Gangplank signals his ship to fire 25 cannonballs upon target area for 7 seconds. Each cannonball deals 75 / 120 / 165 (+20% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies hit. Enemies caught in the area of this ability are slowed by 25% for 1.25 seconds, with the duration refreshing if one stays in the area.
This skill is a global ultimate that provides a slow and some damage. This skill is really nice for gangplank as it allows him to help his team from top lane AND get some gold doing it to make his laning easier.
