Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hey, this is my first guide. So comments and ratings would be nice :).
I picked Yorick for my first guide, because when i bought this champ, i loved him right away!
It is so fun to play him and getting kills.
I think Yorick plays best on AD, because all skils except the W-Skill get bonus damage for Attack Damage.
Yorick isn't an AD-Carry, so you better play him Offtank.
Yorick MUST play solotop. He runs from ganks, has a easy and huge heal skill, and owns nearly everyone.
So let's go!
Pros / Cons
Pros: - big heal
- a bit CC
- chase enemies with Q and W
- unbeatable in an 1v1 with ult
- SO MUCH FUN
Cons: - difficult to play
I think 21-8-1 is the best setting for Yorick.
21: Yorick needs this Offense. He has low base AD, so you need it for dominating his lane and farming a lot!
8: An offtank yorick needs this few Defense, for not dying too often and farming more safely.
1: Simple: Teleport and Flash get buffes with this single point. Cheap and effective!
These runes are the best for playing a Solotop-AD champ. If you want to play a bit more safely, take the "Greater Quintessences of Fortitude", instead the "Greater Quintessences of Strenght", but it's no need.
For starting, the Meki-Pendant is a must! You need it for not running OOM, heal yourself often enough and doinate your lane.
Buy Manamune as fast as you can, to get your stacks! You can buy boots before, but if you see that you can farm safely, get Manamune first!
After buying boots, get a Zeal or Sheen, for improved farming and dealing damage.
Trinity force starts your killing spree. It gives you a HUGE advantage against the enemies.
your basic attacks can slow'em, you have the passive of Sheen, you get a bit of everything!
Then the tanky build starts. gain more life with a Giant's belt and a Frozen Mallet.
Get even more Health with a Warmogs and get nearly Invincible with Atma's Impaler.
I prefer to split Atma's and Warmogs, to get a bit of both earlier.
You HAVE to start With E.
If you don't, farming could get difficult. If you play against Gangplank, he has an easy job and outranges you. But if you counter him with your heal, you can farm safely.
Leave E on 3, skill W 1 time!, and start dealing HUGE damage with skilling Q onto 5!
With that Sequence you deal damage, have a CC with W and E and dominate the enemies.
Note that your passive gives you increased Damage for every Ghoul that is nearby you. So in fights or farming, just spam your skills to get this HUGE buff.
Q: Use Q to farm and deal damage to your enemy sometimes. Don't forget the Speeed-Boost you get when you hit an enemy champion or minion. Use that to flee, or chase.
W: Outrange your enemys, start a fight, flee from ganks, or just slow fleeing enemies! Doesn't deal much damage, but has a high range to slow enemies.
E: Heal yourself! Earlygame, you deal your most damage with this skill. So use it to outrange your enemy, or use it on minions to farm.
R: Earlygame: Makes you unbeatable in an 1v1. So if you want to kill the enemy solotop, check for misses, your enemies health , if the enemy jungler isn't near, if you got enough HP and MP, and kill him with spamming your skills first.if you are half on health, use your ult, that you can turn the fight over, or deal some HUGE damage, that the enemy didnt expect. If you die, while your clone is alive, chase him whithin the 10 seconds you get, after you die.
NOTE: You control your clone like Annies Tibbers, ALT+ Rightclick. DON'T MISS THAT!!!
