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.
Another Wacky build by Wacky. lol
GP the crit ***** everyone hates but everyone loves. Well this just gives a whole new flavor to GP. The GOD(mode)PLANK.
Crit, vitality, CDR and movement speed.. all great for early and helps a bit late game. You could switch vitality for more crit or fortitude (flat health) up to you.
Its straight forward, dmg, atk speed, life steal, crit + dmg, armor pen and 21.
I get gold cuz as u can see, the build is quite expensive (tho doable if played right) and movement speed is great cuz as u can tell, NO BOOTS, why waste 700+ gold on boots when u will be trading them late game? Get more lifesteal or crit.
Well, you may be looking at it and saying "noob no boots, why so much life steal?" Well this is the reason why.. by the time u have your third vampiric septor (following my build) you are going to be critting quite often and have about 50% life steal.. so u crit for 400.. you gain 200 health.. I have faced down GP's who were 12/6 and I was 8/3 and owned them, they were very good, but I would outlive all the dmg.
You start off with brawlers gloves and 1 mana and health pot (if u know whos in lane you can switch the pots for both mana or health). Then Avarice blade for gold and more crit.
Now for some life steal, it'll help a bit but won't be that effective YET. Now time for zeal. This is your boots if u wanna call it that. The key to this is to FARM FARM FARM. If u can gank thats good, but you gotta farm minions, ult hudge waves. Your team needs to be on board with what your doing for maximum efficency.
Now get executioners calling. Why? 3% more life steal (ur VS is there) and more crit. By now you should have about 40-55% crit chance. Buy another VS.
Now start building your PD. If you are farming u should have no problem (and in team fights u will be very helpful) building up to this.
Now another VS. Your attacking fast, your critting often, and you have about a 36% life steal.
Now is the deciding factor. You can either go for more dmg and lifesteal. Or go for more crit and dmg. Infinity edge or blood thurster, if u are finding ur getting downed past your life steal, get BF sword then another VS.
Now build which ever u see fit either IE or BT.
Get another VS if possible. The key to this build as I said before is life steal. You outlive damage. So more damage + crit = more life absorbed. Dont focus on JUST getting life steal, cuz without crit and dmg, there is no survival.
Farm.. hmm what else? Oh and FARM! Thanks to the new jungle build, u can easily run out of lane kill a jungle creep and go back. I like to lane where the golems are, but anywhere is good. Try and gank other lanes, don't be aggressive in your lane, u want to LAST HIT especially with parley for added gold.
In team fights, wait for the battle to begin. When this happens, just run in and down the carry. Straight forward, they WILL focus you (cuz ur GP) but as long as u are AUTO ATTACKING, you will have no problem staying alive and living through their burst.
Give it a try. If u don't like the build, let me know why, what I can do to improve. I don't know how to post those little icons so I hope the breaking up of it helps.
Also this works REALLY well in dominon. Just trade BT for the other life steal item.
Keep your cool, don't over extend, and just farm.
So that's it! Enjoy GOD(mode)PLANK
