The Keys to Playing Top-lane GP

There are only two keys to playing the pirate:

1.) Be greedy when it comes to gold!

2.) Adapt, adapt, adapt!

- You MUST get ahead of the gold-count of your opponent. To do this, simply spam your gun for last-hits. When there is no last-hit available, shoot the opposing champion to keep him on his heels and out of your way when last-hitting. (This is why you need mana-regen runes)

- NEVER use Scurvy for healing unless all enemy cc is accounted for.

- Keep a ward handy, but only use wards when pushing. The 75 gold per ward adds up quickly early-game and can keep you from running back into the battlefield from spawn with an item that gives 25+ additional damage. More damage = more gold.

- Lifesteal = sustainability = more gold.

- Let your team know when your ult is up. Your ult = easy assists = more gold.

- Adapt, adapt, adapt! If the enemy is all physical damage, buy armor. If the enemy has heavy health regen, buy an executioners calling. If the enemy is squishy, buy more crit-chance and snipe him with your gun.
