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.
Hello and welcome to my first champion guide featuring Gangplank. Gangplank is fun champion to play especialy as a jungler. I personaly like jungler over solo top Gangplank because he is easy to figure out and doesent require any special skils to master him. Also he is very efficient at ganking with his Parley skil wich has nice slow and also aplies red buff. Another thing is that you must watch map 24/7 for asisting ur teamates with your ultimate. Once again i poit out that this is my first guide so i dont know how to put link of skill, items , etc... Sory for my bad english i hope you will understand the words. ;)
First of all are runes, i personaly use jungle runes over crit, because it is more efficient in early game. You wont take that much damage from creeps and it gives a preety decent armor and magic resist. Also for marks i use armor penetration cuz of extra damage u deal to creeps and of early ganks without Arp runes arent that efficient. Quints are flat Health for utility in jungle and extra health isnt that bad. You can also take Arp quints, if u play heavy crit gankplank.
For masteries is a standard 21 0 9 , i personaly call it ADjungle, its perfect for gp, gives arp, extra damage to minions, atack speed, 4% more damage, anything your gankplank needs. Utility tree gives you extra exp wich is crucial if u go jungle, more buff duration , less time dead( u dont have to take this if ur a perfect jungler) take preservance instead.

Creeping / Jungling
On spawn point, take vampiric scepter and head to wolf camp, take E skill, wolf spawn at 1.40, hit E and atack the big wolf, once its finished take off the small ones. DON NOT SMITE WOLFES!!!. Head to the wraiths and smite the big one, LEVEL UP, take Q and atack 2 times small wraith and finish it with Q, kill next with aa, and for the third do same as for the first. Head to the golems and kill the one which is closest, kill the next one and recall. Buy cloth armor and hp potion. Head to blue buff camp, use smite and kill them all. Next wolf camp then wraith camp, at the red buff u will have low hp but dont wory if u have right runes, then u will make it, smite lizard and kill off the litle ones, at golem camp use W if u go too low. recall and buy boots and ward. Its time to gank. :D
In team fights stay behind and w8 until enemys squishy chars apear, then simply tell ur tank to go in, R on whole battleground. and Q carrys, aa to finish them, simple as that! :D
I hope you will use this guidelines and build to help u be a better gankplank. If u have any questions or recomedations comment below. Good gankin. P.S. sry for english :P
