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.
YARRR, LANDLUBBERS! I COME FROM DA SEA TO TEACH YOU HOW TO PLAY ME! YARR!
(please note: This build is best for 3v3, idk about 5v5 or dominion thou..)
Today, I'm honored to present you the maxiultraoph4x GP build - Critplank!
This build is aimed at giving YOU maximum efficency in team battles!
IF you happen to get focused, and your teammates aren't a bunch of tards, YOU can score a TRIPLE kill! (PENTA's not guaranteed by the manafacturer)
Wanna get OP?
Wanna be the best player on your team?
First GP time - a.k.a: "lolwut dis spell dosnt heel 5 bazillions"
(Players who know what "Remove Scurvy" does can skip!)
If you began playing Gangplank, you probably noticed that he has a HEAL spell!
I'm here to tell you this: DO NOT use it to heal BEFORE combat! It's inefficent + has a long CD!
Healing in combat is OK, as long as you are actually IN THE COMBAT!
But, the best part is, you can use it to ESCAPE!
Imagine this: You are getting your *** kicked by Malzahar's ulti, what do you do? Of course you don't stand there like a moron, YOU use your "Heal 'n' Run" spell and you PWN HIS FACE!
Now read on carefully:
Remove Scurvy - Consumes a large quantity of citrus fruit which clears any crowd control effects on him and heals him for 80/150/220/290/360 (+1) health.
Your ulti and you
Now, you probably noticed that you have a ULTIMATE! Also, you've probably read the GP tips, so you know you can place it anywhere and get some nice kills wih it. NOW, here's a free fact: your ulti also SLOWS PEOPLE DOWN! So, if there are 5 pursuers on you, don't hesitate to use it together with Raise Morele to slow them down and make your daring escape!
The "Crit" factor
Remember, when using this build, Critical chance is your BFF! If you do it as shown above, you can down anyone in about 5-10 hits (if not less, taking papyrus into the draw), BECAUSE YOU CRIT LIKE FU*K!
papyrus - generally not tanky character (Veigar, Brand...)
CRIT! - a good GP's crit
CRIT CHANCE! - a lot of critical strike chance
-First off, what do you need? Of course, CRIT CHANCE! (represented by Brawler's Gloves)! It feels great when on FB, an enemy tries to run with 1/3 health and you one-shot him.
-Next up, what'cha need? Of course, gold (cuz you're a pirrrate) and more CRIT CHANCE! (Avarice Blade, builds from the gloves).
-After that, you wanna get some attack speed and CRIT CHANCE! with Cloak and Dagger. (Haven't seen this in many builds that would prosper from it.)
-"And then?" you may ask! Well, you're gonna need some serious damage and CRIT CHANCE!
-And, at last, my favorite part! more CRIT CHANCE! (and speed) with Mr. Phantom Dancer!
-Optional items are either Bloodthirster (lifesteal) OR Rabadon's Deathcap (brutal ulti damage)
With this, you get exactly the crit chance you need - 101% "Why 101?" you might ask! Because 100% is for landlubbers, real pirrrates need 101%!
Remember, YOU are the biggest DPS in your team (probably) and the enemies WILL try to focus you (If they're not a bunch of tards). So, YOU must prevent this! Attack, but stay safe n sound, and run when you get bigger amounts of damage. The general strategy is: In a 3v3 teamfight, just tell your teammates who to focus and then Parrrley him to death! Then, they are weakened so let the fight begin and dispense tasty CRITS! and Parrrleys to them! The enemy team should get pwned (If you're not feeding) AND you should get the kills!
Wrapup and contact
