Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my second guide on Mobafire. In this guide, I will be talking about Gangplank, the orange eating pirate.


Guide Top

Runes

In red I take four armor pent. runes so I can have some early pent., along with some straight AD marks so I can farm early.
I take yellow armor always if I am playing top, just a preference. Typically because you will be going against ADs.
Blue magic resist because it doesn't hurt when you're against an AP mid.
Quints I take one health for early game and 2 straight AD for early farm.


Guide Top

Masteries

Basic tank masteries. Armor masteries, to stop early damage from the enemy top laner.


Guide Top

Items

These items work very well with his skill set. He has his Q for the Tiamat proc. This allows you to AoE enemies around you, and it also helps for farming. Also, a Warmog is a good item for GP, giving him lots of tankiness and sustain. This helps him get to the front lines and pick off their carries.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Max Q first for farm, W second for Sustain, and E last for extra damage during team fights. Level R whenever you get the chance, as usual.


Guide Top

Spells

Basic Flash/Ignite, so you can get away and fight with a other opponents.


Guide Top

Farming

Use your Q whenever you can, but make sure not to run out of mana. Last hitting creeps with your Q will return some of the mana used, and also give you bonus gold, so use this to your advantage. An early Tiamat will help clearing lanes.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

His Q its scaled as a AD melee attack, so the Tiamat will proc. when you use it. You can use this and farm the lane faster then anything. Your W is the only heal/CC remove in the game, so use this if you are getting CC'd. Your E givess you and any allies in the area a speed buff, and gives them an additional 10 AD. Ult is one of the few global ults in the game, so use it to your advantage.


Guide Top

Teamwork

Just take the front line and guard your carrys from being focused. Use your ult when engaging a teamfight. Use Oranges to keep your self from getting CC'd. Use your E to give your team speed/AD buffs.


Guide Top

Laning Phase

Take an early point in your Q so you can farm. Use it, plus your autoattacks to farm, while poking your enemy with your Q.

Summary

This is my guide to playing Gangplank in Season 3! Thanks for reading!
