JUNGLE MUTHA FUCKING YORICK
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.
I DUNNO LOL
I have no idea what I'm doing and this is my first time so be gentle. Just kidding rip me a new one, I want to see if this is good or if I just played the luckiest games of league in my life when playing as jungle yorick. One of my better games I wen 17-2-1 I don't have a picture so just take my word for it. What makes jungle yorick so viable is he has decent sustain, good clear times, and his minions tank damage...go ahead and read that again, I'll wait. Yup your eyes don't deceive you. And if you made it this far without scoffing or saying "WHY THE **** WOULD I DO THAT?" then congratulations I'll let you in on a little secret. Yorick can 4 minute solo dragon. The only catch is that you can only do it on blue side. If you are on purple side then its 5 minute solo dragon. If you're playing against a jungle yorick tell your support to hide your buffs and hide your dragons because he be raping 'errbody out here. No but seriously ward that ****.
The jungling with yorick is no different then with any other mana using jungler. BLUE FIRST. duh. Best thing about yorick is that if you have a team of pricks that won't leash, you don't have to fret. Yorick is so ****ing badass he doesn't need a leash. Having one is nice, but its not a necessity. After you're down molesting Blue golem and his children, you should be level 2 grab your Q use it to kill the last little ****er and speed your way to Wolves. Oh didn't I mention? His Q gives him a speed buff. BOOM. FASTER JUNGLING ***********ER. When you're done sodomizing wolves then head your happy *** over to wraiths and give them the gift of murder. After wraiths you should be level 3 and you can get your E which is a slow. Not super effective but nice nonetheless. After that go over to the Elder Lizard and pay your respects to his deceased children. Then finish the job. Use smite or save it I don't really care. Go after mini golems and after you're done decimating them, you go for the big prize. 4 minutes DRAGON *****! that's global 190 Gold for all your team, if they weren't winning in lane before they should be now. Allow your ghouls to tank most of the damage from dragon, pop your pots, and you should be almost full health by the end. I will post a video of me doing it so you can see perfection with your own eyes. If you for some reason get unlucky enough to be stuck on purple team then you go Blue, wolves, wraiths, red, golems, wraiths, wolves, Dragon. Its harder to solo but nobody said this would be easy. The only way I can see around this is if you counter jungle the opponent's blue and then go wraiths, golems, red, wolves, then solo dragon, but that might be a little harder. And riskier. And dumbassier. Is that even a word? Oh well it is now. copywright luckyninja and all luckyninja subsidiaries. Now you know the gist of it go out and win some games with this bad ***, gang-banging, caretaker of the undead.
Why I get the items I get
First of all, this is my build there are many like it but this one is mine. Boots, 4 health pots, and 1 mana pot. This is how I start, you can improve on it anyway you see fit. Next we have the core of our build. The SOTAG (Spirit of the Ancient Golem) helps with mana early and makes it so you don't need merc treads. Boots of swiftness helps your jungling and ganking speeds. Furor I have seen to be very nice when chasing enemies using your ultimate so they can't get away. Ravenous hydra for jungling speeds and the life steal. Iceborn for the slowing affect and the sheen proc. Manumune to help with mana late game. And Guinsoo's because if you weren't raping before you probably are now. Now for the tank items, or the maybes. These can be subbed for any of the aforementioned items if you are losing horribly, getting counter jungled and ganked, or if your team was stupid and decided not to have a tank. Last but not least ALWAYS BUY WARDS! Don't give me that "its the supports job!" BS. OH, its the support's job to make the map more visible so that you don't get raped in your own jungle? NOPE. EVERYONE should buy wards. EVERYONE. "It's not apart of my build". MAKE it apart of your build. Remember wards save lives.
