Start

This is my first build and its about tactics and recommended options for yorick.
Yorick is very good champ but he has very small mana and cooldown problems.
His mana regen is very slow and this is a thing that loses fights with fighters.
I think Yorick wasn´t best for newbie summoners. He´s for pro players, very good for jungling, ganking and pushing lines. Let´s go.

Yorick Tactics

He has a lot of tactics. It depends from game and team. I recomended him for ranked game or premade with friend. But this build is mid way off averythink.

1.Tactic: Jungling and Ganking

When you´re jungling take smite instead of ignite. This tactic is very efective but hard to play with players that don´t know what is real ganking. You must comunicate with team go to lines and help teamates killing champs in their line. When you ganking be alert when on ganking line are champs like a Cassiopea, Fizz or other ap op champs. Yorick is wery good jungler and too good ganker this take note. In teamfights don´t go first when you have this build.

2.Tactic: Pushing line with teamate

OK This tactic wasn´t the best choice to Yorick. But when you´re don´t speak a lot of things to chat and you don´t ping every time this tactic is for you. It´s easy to play this tactic. You are all time in line and sometimes you go to team fights. But fo Yorick this tactic is so bad and i don´t recommended it. Because Yorick haven´t escape spell.

3.Tactic: Tankplay

Yorick is good pusher and he might be a tank. But you must have tank things. Its a problem because Yorick have poor mana and slow mana regen. I recomended for this tactic things like a
Frozen Heart or Shurelya´s Reverie.

4.Tactic: Your tactic

Do your own tactic. It´s a best choise for Yorick. There are the most commonly tactics in play with Yorick. Make your own tactic and be the PRO Yorick player.

Other items

Boots

Ninja Tabi - Very good against dps team.

Berserker's Greaves - Good for all fighters.


Tank Items


Frozen Heart - mana + armor very good for Yorick against dps team
Randuin's Omen - Ultimate tank item good for every tank

Shurelya's Reverie - Good thing for Yorick with mana regen and wanted movement

Warmog's Armor - It give you a lot of healt - it´s good for tanks, gankers and junglers

Force of Nature - with Warmog´s your every champ is nearly unkillable.

DPS items

The Bloodthirster - This item gives you life steal and a lot of damage. I recomended this item for Yorick instead of Zeke´s Herald
Maw of Malmortius - This thing is good against mage team.

Other Summoners spells

Ignite/Smite/Heal/Clarity
Flash/Ghost/Teleport(In 5v5)

I recomended Flash and Ignite but it´s your choice
