Introduction


Hello everyone :D this is my first build and i'm doing it on gangplank (critplank) my favourite character in league of legends. I know a lot of people don't play critplank anymore but i think he is still viable playing critplank I've played many critplank ranked games and he's come through for me almost all the time. I hope you enjoy the guide!

Pros / Cons

- global ult!

Cons:
- pretty squishy
- needs farm to be lethal
- nothing else really xD

Runes

I decide to get all crit chance runes for critplank and some attack damage glyphs for extra critical damage. The crit chance runes are great for early game harass and farm and also late game nukes.

Masteries

i go with a 25 - 1 - 4 format here because gangplank is an AD carry! I always get mostly offense masteries and some utility for the mana (to farm with your parley)

Items

I always get my avarice blade early game great for the extra gold and great for early game harass it's cheap too. Next I always get Ionian boots. Infinity edge is my next stop it helps increase your critical damage drastically. Now it all depends on how the game is going if i need more sustain i get a bloodthirster if the enemy is building armor i get a black cleaver if both of these aren't happening i usually get a phantom dancer (mostly for the crit chance). Depending on how the game is going i get a bloodthirster or cleaver next if i need sustain bloodthirster if enemy is building armor i get black cleaver. Now i get whatever is left (usually black cleaver) if you would like the extra armor pen but less attack damage and critical damage you could also get last whisper or youmuu's ghostblade. Finally i sell my avarice blade and get an atma's impaler for extra crit more attack damage which equals crit damage and some armor.

Skill sequence

You skill priorties are R then Q then E then W. I always max my Q first upgrade your ult whenever you can and lvl up your E and W whenever possible.


Guide Top

Summoner spells

I always get ignite just for that extra damage when there low health ignite is amazing for gangplank. For my second spell i prefer flash but some other decent spells would include

Exhaust: great for slowing an enemy during a chase
Ghost: good during a long chase not so good when running away (if you get CC'd)
Teleport: this is pretty good if you like to blink around the map

Team Work

during team fights stay back and harass with your parley to initiate the team fight you usually need to use your ult. I've gotten a pentakill with gangplank in a team fight by using his ult. Raise morale helps during a team fight increaing everyone's damage. When the enemy is pushing a lane use your ult too defend your tower. You have a global ult so put it to good use. Ult too protect your tower you will need to usually do this during a game at least once. Know the enemy! You have to know the enemy champion you have too know what kind of spells they have and CC's. Remember to save your orange for their CC. This isn't just with gangplank but with any other champion STAY TOGETHER if you go out alone pushing a lane you will get burst down. Staying together is very important!

Summary

Critplank needs farm so remember dont play too aggresive early game try to last hit creeps with your parley. When you are fed there's no stopping you I encourage all gangplank lovers to try this build because it's the most viable one i know. I hope you enjoyed my guide! :D
