Introduction

Not many people even know what Yorick is capable of or what he does. Yorick is the best solo top in the game and his one counter being trundle (who is never played) makes him unstoppable unless they freeze the lane with Cho'gath a "counter" but unless your playing Yorick wrong you shouldn't be loseing. Yorick is an ad off tank solo top who is a pusher and a bruiser. Hes extremly fun to play and not many guides are on here for him so I decided to make one.

Runes

Your best bet for Yorick in the way of runes are flat ad or movement quints, armor pen marks, armor seals, and magic resist glyphs. This is a basic ad top rune page so Use this for others like him.

Items

Yorick is mana hungry early game with harrasing so start meki pendant and health potions and immediately go for a tear of the goddess so you can spam those abilties while giving yourself more mana. The mana mune will give you +20 attack damge for the 1000 mana you get from it as well as any other mana you have. You want to build some health like frozen mallet and warmogs because the more health you have the longer the ghouls last.

Summoner Spells

I like to take flash ignite on yorick because not only does flash give you that all around utility but yoricks q gives him a movement steroid that gets him up to 500+ movement.
