Hey guys, lately, i've been hearing people saying yorick is terribad even after his patch. Just wanted to put out that Yorick was beast before and after the patch so LISTEN HERE. This Guide will Teach you almost everything you need to know how what to do to WIN with Yorick. I'll tell you right now, Yorick during Early and most of Mid game is a RANGED character. Don't go off and do something stupid that will get you killed.
Truthfully, i don't have any runes so yeah. Those runes i just posted seem to be the best for yorick early n mid games. Late game of course too.
"Spell Pen on Yorick? Man, you crazy." Of course spell Pen. Yorick's ghouls get cast as spell damage so you wanna get the bang for your buck.
Doran's is an amazing starting with Yorick cuz it gives U n ur ghouls the dmg, health n lifesteal ( a bit, for theiself.) Next, you need boots becuz Yorick is too slow for me, but thats cuz i hate anyone going below 420 MS. You NEED frozen mallet becuz ur pest. ghoul only slows for at max, 5 seconds. Frozen mallet will give you tons of hp for u n ur peps and also a lil bit o' damage. Next is brut cuz the cd's nice and the dmg helps a ton load. Going into youmuu's cuz the atk pen helps out with ur basic hits and comon, you can't have brutilizar just lying around. Let's see now, you need sheen so it can proc with ur hits n trinity for the rest o; the stats. Finally Banshee's becuz u need some more MR and the shield is nice!
I HATE Q on Yorick early. It isn't helpful at all. You need to get close to use it, n Yorick is WAY to squishy to risk it. U wanna get e up first becuz the lifesteal helps u survive a LoNG TIME in lane. Next is w for the harass ( W n E are for harass) n also the slow. Also for the fact that it can block skill shots. Level your ulti whenever possible and level up your q last.
You need to Spells, or three, and thats it. Ignite to catch em critters that run away and flash to pop next to ur enemy's and burst em down with ur minions = ignite for the kill. Ghost can be taken if you want..... NOTHING ELSE.
I'll lay it down to you simple. Don't spam your moves. Spam = your own death. Use your E to get your HP back if you were bursted down and use your W to clear creeps waves. After level 3, you can afford to harass the enemy champs every now and then. Mid-Game is when you can spam your moves a bit more to harass but always keep a eye on CD. CD kills you also. Yorick is a great burst/gank champ. I'm pretty sure you can turret dive after you get your phage (not all the time though) Also, Yorick is amazing with his ulti and ghouls at 1v1ing. He rapes. Late Game is all out berserker mode, going freggin INSANE. Make sure you get in position with your teammates though cuz u can't win without em.
P.S. ALWAYS BUY SOME POTS / WARDS WHEN YOU HAVE SOME SPARE GP.
