Introduction

A simple Crit build for gangplank. It's efficient, mostly against squishy heros in the early game. Late game, it can destroy even good tanks quite easily.

Summoner Spells

Since this build has no slowing effect, it is really a must that you take exhaust as one of your summoner spells. I chose to take ghost as the secound one because this build can be a little slow early game.

With this build you will get easilly 1k crits, and lets face it, every one likes getting 1k crits :D

Runes

On word: CRIT. You get runes that can get you either more critical chance or critical damage. Some attack speed can't hurt but mostly get CRITICAL runes.

Items

My items build is quite simple. You start by getting a Brawler's Glove and an Health potion. Then, as soon as you can, you get two Avarice Blade. After that you get a B.F. Sword and a Cloak of Agility and follow it by finishing your infinity Edge. After that you need to get some attack speed, you have two possible choices, either you get Youmuu's Ghostblade now or you get your first Phantom Dancer. I usually get my first Phantom Dancer than follow it by a Zeal and then I sell one of my Avarice Blade to finish my Youmuu's Ghostblade faster. From here on, if you might need some life steal so i suggest you buy your Bloodthirster and finish your secound Phantom Blade as your last item.

This build is quite easily acheavable since your attack speed and your crit ratio are quite hight wich means that you can gank squishy members of the opposing team and kill them quite easily or get your money from farming mobs.

Summary

The trick is to use your Raise Morale skill to deny mob kills early game, if you are mid, it will give you a slight edge level wise. I like to play defensively with Gangplank, wich means that i simply last hit mobs and keep behind my own mobs for protection. While doing that I use the long range on parley to hit my opponents as often as I can and hope to get lucky with a crit or two. After you get your ult, its a good thing to keep a good eye on the other lanes so that you can cast it to help your teammates ketting kills. If they dont need your help, you simply cast your ult on your direct opponent after you have lowered his or their health at least midway, after that you use ghost and follow it by exhaust. While doing all that you spam parley on the enemy and hit him with your auto attack. It should be enought to kill him quite easilly.
