Introduction

This is my first guide so please be gentle ;P I use this build when I play Gangplank. I hope you guys enjoy it! I mainly focus on crit damage and I build him as a glass cannon.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
*Great burst damage with criticals
*Remove scurvy works like cleanse
*Global ultimate
*Passive poisons and slows

Cons:
*Unpredictable DPS early game
*Carry so you will be focused
*Item dependant

Runes

I use armor penetration runes as well as one armor pen quint. Then I have two other health quints. I think this gives GP a good amount of health in the beginning with keeping his damage high. I then use crit runes for both the yellow and blue. If you get the crit item in the beginning, you will start with 16% crit. And with avarice blade you will have 20%!

Masteries

I follow a 21/9 build for GP. I like this build because his dodge gives him survivability and 21 in offense is a no brainer. I make sure to pick up the buff for exhaust because exhaust on GP is GDLK! Pretty standard IMO.

Items

Items are pretty straight forward. I start with brawlers gloves and rush them into avarice blade. Then I build dodge boots for survivability. I then build my IE. I start with the crit cloak then into BF sword. After I finish that, I get crit cloak again and then zeal for phatom. By the time you are done with this build you will have amazing crit damage and it will be fairly consistent.

Skill Sequence

I pick up parrrley first. This gives you an awesome farming tool as well as a messed up harass. Personally, I use parrrley to harass. The extra gold isnt a huge difference and mana is scarce early game. If you crit early game, it does 1/4 to 1/3 of their life! I then pick up remove scurvy and just bounce back and forth until I can grab my ultimate. Your ultimate is global! That means you can help champs in other lanes with kills or save them with the slow. Next you are going to want to max out scurvy. It is an awesome cleanse that gives you health as well. You're going to want to use this for escapes and for champs such as Warwicks ult, Malzahar ult, etc. Raise moral is last but is very good for escapes or initiating ganks. Use scurvy to remove CC then raise moral and dip out on them.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

For summoner spells I always use Exhaust and Ignite. Gangplanks passive no longer reduces healing so ignite is great for champs like Warwick, Swain, Etc. Exhaust is great for escaping champs or right at the start. I use it when people try to gank me. It turns the table on them because their DPS is severely hindered and your crits will take care of them.

Summary

In summary you are a glass cannon with amazing burst. Your job as a carry is to get kills and do damage. By your 4th item you should be rolling with 75% crit and will be melting face. I hope you guys enjoy this build and please give me feedback. Thanks ><
