Introduction

Hello my nickname isSlarc3 and I play in EU League of legends server. Got around 250-300 games with GP and I'm not some known player or ranked hardcore one , but I'm decent player and this is my 1st guide to Gangplank my main champ. After the remake of GP he became less viable for a carry (+ he is melee) and I started seeing him in different light as tanky dps jungle champion + riot buffed his squishyness after the recent buffs he is a viable and scary jungler, enjoy the way I play "Gank"plank

Masteries

I run 21/0/9 with improved smite and 1/2 improved buff durations , self expl.


Guide Top

Runes

Greater Mark of Greater Mark of Desolation x9 is far the best Marks for AD champion.
Greater Seal of Greater Seal of Resilience x9 becouse we are jungling and armor helps u can change them for DODGE but i prefer flat armor.
Greater Glyph of Greater Glyph of Shielding x9 we take per/lvl because we don't need too much early just to counter the AP nukers >.> or u can take Greater Glyph of Greater Glyph of Focus Greater Quintessence of Greater Quintessence of Desolation x3 to buff our dps , or u can take Greater Quintessence of Greater Quintessence of Fortitude x3 if u are thinking u are too squshy.


Guide Top

We take:


Smite because we are jungling after all.

Creeping / Jungling

There are 2 major rote's :

The one starting at blue which all of us knows.
And the one I'm using : starting at wolf camp > wraith's (smiting the blue wraith) > the two golems > back to base > Blue buff > route > Red Buff > Gang.

Teamfights

In teamfights u want to w8 ur tank to engage then pop E and R over them and go straight for their carry's. U already are force to be reckoned with in mid game.


Guide Top

Tips and tricks

When ganging try to use E when u engage and mark ur target before u engage on them so that ur partner knows that u will jump on the target/s pop parrley ( Q ) and continue to normal hit them to death (which is fast with the slow from red buff + passive and ur OP Dmg)

Closing statements

That was for my 1st guide to my favorite champ - Gangplank hope it helps the players and thanks to Searz for the great template for guide's that I used part from. Sorry for my bad english (I'm self learning it.) Any feedback is welcome and please try the build before u downvote.
