Introduction



Hello! So my name is Andrew or Zwaffle (whichever floats your boat really. presiding in sunny Fresno, California I have been playing LOL for about half a year but am an avid gamer and manged to pick up on the game very quickly, or atleast quickly enough to feel i could contribute a build to the LOL community. This buiild in short focuses around capitalizing upon yoric's passive which greatly increases his damge and survivability to his ghouls on the field. by mixing tank items and cooldown reduction this build allows you to have multiple ghouls out at all times (and that is no exaggeration, you literally will have atleast two ghouls out minimum at all time during a fight with this build). Also, by using the omen of famine you can sustain yourself in large group fights and 1 V. 1

Summary



So for simplicity sake I will break this down to an overview of Yoric's moves and there synergistic abilities. :D
Omen of War:
This move is incredibly dangerous in 1 V 1 fights especially by offering moderate damage and a movement steal effect allowing for you to prevent gaps and the inevitable escape that follows!
Omen of Pestialence:
This move does light damge but has Yoric's longest casting range and provides for a very dangerous AOE slow. In conjunction with this ability and Omen of War Yorick can get a solid burst of damage aswell as almost make up for the lack of gap-closer with such a heavy combination of mivement imperments.
Omen of Famine:
This ability is Yoric's bread and butter. doing moderate damage this moves primary purpose is to offer Yoric a moderate amont of health and combat sustainability.
Omen of Death:
Yoric's ult is what allows Yoric to be a phenom in both team and 1 V 1 fights! In 1 V 1 Yoriccan effectively initiate combat and quickly follow with his ult and the afformentioned Q and W combo to lock down champs and rack up some serious damage. In team fights Yoric can effectively contribute to his teams survivabily and damage by using this ability on a damaged ally who id being heavily targeted; Thusly generated extra damage and allowing the ally to stay in the fight even after death!

Farming

Farming can be a bit of a task unless you can make good of the AOE damage offered by the Omen of Pestialence. Otherwise it just take patience and some skillful last hitting on the minions.
