Introduction

So if you are an occasional Gangplank player, you might have noticed that he has a few problems when the player focuses solely on Critical Strike. Such build may give you extreme amounts of physical damage and crit, but tend to make your useless, since it uses AP and not Physical Damage...

Items

The main point of this build is the focus on early game attack speed and ability power. Gangplank is a pretty good jungler, mainly due to his second ability which is enhanced by AP. Later on, we build on both physical damage and ability power, which gives gangplank a huge advantage because of his devestating Cannon Barrage. Late game, we sell the two Nashor's Tooth for two Phantom Dancers (Note: You need about 900 extra gold for each purchase). Finally, we finish the build with an Infinity edge, which then makes Gangplank have the following in a huge amount:

    Attack Speed
    Movement Speed
    Ability Power (Medium)
    Attack Damage (+250% Crit)
    Cooldown Reduction (40% [Maximum])

Awesome. Have fun with your devestating Gangplank!
