Welcome to my first Gangplank guide! I play him as mid and it's very easy to win your lane as a Midplank. Please try this build before saying anything negative. Thank you and enjoy!
SOLO TOP GANGPLANK!! (coming soon)
Gangplank is my main champ. Even though I play him as mid, I sometimes get stuck going top. (Team not liking the idea of Gangplank going mid) So I'll show you guys my guide for dominating top as Gangplank!
- Good for Gangplank to either chase for a kill or run from a gank. I don't take Flash simply because of Remove Scurvy which get's you out of CCs.
- Ignite for a secure kill and for those 1v1 moments against summoners that are heavy on lifesteal or healing. Counters their AD carry who has lifesteal.
How to play Midplank!
Remove Scurvy is your main ability in this build! Use it wisely. Parrrley to last hit minions and refund some of your mana back. Try and not to waste it on Champs until you have Philosopher's stone. Remember to save up enough Mana for Remove Scurvy just in case a Gank Occurs. Farm to win!!
Items and when to get them. I mean steal em' because "You are a Pirate
Start with a Regrowth Pendant
and a Health Potion
for sustaining your lane early game.
2.Your First trip back should be at around Level.3. You should have already pushed your lane with Parrrley focusing on minions. Return back to base to get these items.
Next grab Philosopher's Stone
for more Health Regeneration and now Mana Regeneration. You'll also increase your gold income.
Also grab Boots of Speed
but make sure that you have enough gold for both items before returning back to base.
3.Your Second trip back to base should be at Level.6 when you have your ultimate Cannon Barrage to fend off any Champions trying to push mid lane.
Next grab Avarice Blade
for more gold income and a 12% chance of landing a critical hit with your Parrrley
If you can, grab an Amplifying Tome
to increase your Ability Power for your Remove Scurvy
. You'll heal for more and this will work towards your next item.
4. This is your Third trip back to base after your first attempt at a kill. Be sure to check your map to see where the Champs are at. Just in case of a Gank. I would say that you would be around Level.9 at this point. If you don't feel like you're strong enough for a kill then you can always just focus on Minions with Parrrley and save your Cannon Barrage to fend off opponents trying to get that mid turret while you return to base to get your other items.
Your next item is your Sheen
. You'll be able to dish out more damage with your Parrrley
5. Your Fourth trip back is going to be for Magic Resist and Mobility.
Get a Negatron Cloak
for Magic Resist and Ionian Boots of Lucidity
for Cooldown Reduction and more Movement Speed.
