How to play Gangplank.
Alright first off let me say that this build works best if the other team isn't fed and also it tends to shine during late game. Gangplank is a fairly straight forward character. *get potions throughout this build*
SKILL PRIORITY LIST
Get first and harass the other team to no end with it. Don't over use it though because your other skills take more mana and Gangplank's mana pool is quite small early.
The 2nd skill you need is use this to heal whenever low on health and also don't forget it also removes all crowd control effects on him as well as heal him.
Your next skill you should get is you should get this at level 3 but don't rank it up again until your first two skills are rank 5. I find that your other two skills are more used and are higher on your priority list than Raise Moral. But don't forget to use it when needed. *obviously rank your ult when it's time.*
First start with a many may feel the need to get a first but in my experience Gangplank is too squishy for my taste without the early.
Ideally you want to get 750gp or more before you go back, but if you have to back then depending on how much gold you've collected get either a or a .
After you have both the and the go lane and shoot for 1050gp. With at least 1050gp go back and finish with and a .
I dislike playing squishy characters so I make Gangplank a little less squishy than most Gangplanks.
I do this by getting a . *I'll build on this later*
This should hold you over till later in the game.
Next you need a it's movement speed , crit chance and attack speed plays right into Gangplanks skills.
After the get a with these two items you can easily get a which just amplifies what both the and the does and adds MOARR! *it also makes Gangplank less squishy and gives him more mana*
After that you need to finish building the into a *you can either get this before or after the Trinity Force, your choice* *THE CDR AND HEALING AMPLIFYING EFFECT FROM THE SPIRIT VISAGE WILL HELP TREMENDOUSLY ALONG WITH MORE HEALTH THAT IT GIVES.*
Next you need to get a B.F. Sword and a and obviously build those into a *At this point you should be hitting crits out the wazoo!*
Next get a and make it into a *it's effects go hand and hand with the Spirit Visage*
And the last item is a made with a and 1650gp
*quick tips: use your ult to keep them from escaping during ; team fights, ganks, and if your team mates need to secure a kill.* *coordinate with your team mates to use your ult to it's full potential.*
*always last hit creeps with for extra gold*
*don't forget to buy potions throughout the game.* *If you have to choose between health or mana get mana because you can always heal using *
*SELL YOUR AND SOMETIME THROUGHOUT THE GAME FOR SOMETHING BETTER*
