Introduction

O SH!T!!!! ITS A GANKPLANK!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!! Gankplank is a strong champion throughout the match. His Parrley is capable of taking around half of a champions health. In this guide I'll be explaining how to almost 2 shot kill some low health champions and dominate the game.

Runes

I've chosen armour penetration marks and quintessences because of the early game advantage. 25 armour penetration is enough to do a substational extra amount of damage to champions.
I've also chosen critical damage seals instead of critical chance because Gangplank already has over 100% crtitcal chance late game. If I was to choose critical chance seals, they would be a complete waste and give u a little advantage early game.
I've chosen cooldown glyphs because Parrley is what makes Gankplank such a strong champion. To use this skill more often is deadly.

Masteries

For my masteries, I used 22, 5, 3. I've chosen both Socery and Alcrity because of the more frequent use of Parrley and the late game attack speed.
Instead of going all 8 masteries on Utility i used 5 of them in defense. Armour and Magic Resistance are both needed. They are both preferrable over less time spent dead and experience. I did keep 3 on Utility because Gangplank is very mana consuming early game.

Items

Critical chance is what makes Gankplank a deadly champion. Parrley includes critical hits. I try to give Gangplank as much damage and critical as possible throughout the match. If you perfer more critical chance mid game, you can get the Cloak of Agility instead of the B.F. Sword. Armour penetration is also vital beacuse the enemy team will try to get more items. If then enemy has 115 or more armour get Last Whisper, if less, get the Black Cleaver. Late game armour just helps Gankplank survive better in team fights.

Skill Sequence

I maxed out Parrley because its the most important skill for Gankplank to kill. I then got Remove Scurvy and Raise Morale equally as healing, attack speed and damage are all late game advantages.

Summoner Spells

I use exhaust just so i can chase enemies to get the kill, but if you prefer Ghost it is acceptable as well.
Flash, in my opinion, is usefull for all champion to get away as well as getting the kill.

Summary

After reading this guide, i hope you are a better Gankplank player. This is my first guide I wrote so please feel free to give me some feedback. Thanks for reading. =)
