Cons

3. Overall, still a Bad Champion


Guide Top

Standard Runes

- Last Hitting + Early Game Damage Output

- Early Game Stats

OR - vs AP/AD

- Early Game DMG Output.

This is only a STANDARD RUNE SETUP.


Guide Top

Masteries

Testing


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

- MANDATORY. NO EXCEPTIONS.

- It's just too OP not to take as a Top laner


Guide Top

Ideal Final Item Build

youmuu's ghost blade - Early Game power spike

- Stack these if you want (no i'm serious get 3 IEs if you want)

- Amazing item vs Armored Enemies

- more like never-dead man's plate

- CD + Heals for days!

Boots

- vs Mixed (Very Low CD Pokes)


Guide Top

Build Order

The build order is completely different for every Match-Up.

The Ideal Build Order

1. for more s + Harrass + Focusing on Safe Farming
OR
2. for Chase + Tankiness vs

Your main job is to able to Lane safely vs all the Counters + Focus on Farming.

Crit Plank Route:

1. OR into

2.


Guide Top

Situational Items

Offensive Items

- vs Burst APs

- if you got pooped on early game


Defensive Items

- Anti AA Heavy Champs Aura

- Most OP Aura Item vs AP

- vs Poke + Skill Shot Champs

- vs AD Champs

- vs Burst Heavy Champs

- vs Reset Champs


Guide Top

Skill Order

is always taken at Level 1. NO EXCEPTIONS

Level 2 Skill:

Almost Always - The New Domino game, brought to you by Rito Rework

- Last if you are not losing lane too hard

After All Three Basic Abilities are Leveled Up:

- Max this 1st/2nd always, no excuses just shut up and do it

has 3 Upgrades now but then I'm greedy so Fire at Will


Guide Top

Gangplank's Passive: Trial By Fire



This is actually a nerf to his early 1v1 AA Duels since it has CD.

True DMG + MS Boost + DOT (Based on AD + Levels)

Refresh this by last hitting a


Guide Top

Gangplank's Q: Parrrley



Targeted Ability: Main Damage Output + Poking Tool + Safe Farming from a Distance

Make sure you rack up some gold with this to upgrade your !

Applies On-Hit Effects + Life Steal + can Critically Strike (Acts like an Auto-Attack)

a 1 hit and you break a leg.

If you are gonna use this on a minion, make sure it's a LAST HIT (Extra Gold + Half of Mana Cost is Refunded)


Guide Top

Gangplank's W: Remove Scurvy



Free + Insta-Heal + CC Removement

DOES NOT REMOVE THE FOLLOWING:

1.

2. Damage Reduction from

3. Airborne CC (pulls, knock-backs, knock-ups)

4. 's Malefic Visions

REMOVES SUPPRESSION FROM:

1. 's Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser (If channel completes both champs will still be moved)

2. 's Nether Grasp (must move out of range or will take damage)

3. 's Impale

4. 's Infinite Duress (must move out of range or will take damage)

Knowing when to use this Skill is absolutely CRUCIAL (High Cool Down + ONLY Escape Ability)

1. INSTANTLY after the First CC.
OR
2. Save for the Last CC from the Enemies.

Improve your Reaction Speed: Practice Insta-Casting after CC.


Guide Top

Gangplank's E: Powder Keg



This is a HUGE boost to your Early Game Damage Output + can Kill Unexpected Enemies at Level 2.

You can do a Chain Reaction of Powder Kegs = Tons of AoE Damage

You can also use this as an escaping tool by refreshing

ALWAYS HAVE ONE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR ESCAPE (Put it in a safe spot)


Guide Top

Gangplank's R (Ultimate): Cannon Barrage

(Currently Experimenting)

Now it has 3 upgrades, but I see Fire At Will and Death's Daughter being the only useful ones.

Global AoE of Cannon Balls + Gives Vision of the Area

Used for Teamfights + Low HP Enemies + Picking Up Assists.

Low HP Enemies:

Always put it right on the top of the enemy's head. DO NOT PREDICT.

During Teamfights:

Peel OR Engage Tool (Not a Strong Engage since it's just a Slow)

General Idea: Place to hit as many enemies as possible.

Assists Across the Map:

Free Assists by other Lanes.

SHOULD have the Most Assists by the end of the game.


Guide Top

Champion Match-Ups

Every Match-Up is very difficult and requires a lot of experience.

Make sure to check back for Youtube Videos + more information.


- DO NOT trade with him until you are Level 2
- Be aware of his Passive Blood Well
- You can still AA and use Skills while Airborne from his Dark Flight
- Randuin's Omen


- Zone her before Level 6
- Never fight in her Twilight Shroud
- Watch Out for Level 6 All-Ins
- Hexdrinker + Vision Ward


- Trade + Harrass Level 1~3
- Banshee's Veil
- Focus on Farming after Level 6


- Remove Scurvy his Crippling Strike
- Focus on Farming as he out-damages you at any Level


- Everytime he tries to Melee CS, Parrrley + AA Combos
- Focus on Farming when he gets Sadism


Guide Top

Early Game

No more Grog Soaked Blade passive on every hit = nerf to early game 1v1 AA Dueling

It is better to safe farm and try to lane (you can't all-in early anymore)

1. Correct Rune Page

2. Correct Summoner Spells

3. Correct Starting Items + Item Choices

4. Enemy Jungler Starting Location

5. Know your Match-Up (When to be Passive OR Aggressive)

6. CSing + Last Hitting Every Minion when using

7. If Enemy is going to hit Level 2 Earlier, BACK OFF IMMEDIATELY


Guide Top

Mid Game

At this point: you SHOULD HAVE built AT LEAST 2 Damage Items.

during Small Skirmishes + Dragon Control

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE 's Early Game Damage Output

Map Awareness with cannon or (if you took it) is CRUCIAL.

ALWAYS BE READY to help your Allies Kill or Survive with .

player is judged by his Number of Assists NOT Kills.

Map Awareness Tips:

1. Pay Attention to the Allies Portraits on the Left Side of your screen

2. Use your F2 F3 F4 F5 Keys to cycle through your Teammates

3. Always use Space-Bar to get your screen back to your Own Champion.


Guide Top

Late Game

At this point: you SHOULD HAVE finished your 2 Core Damage Items + 2 Tank Items

2 Options: Split Push OR Group

ONLY Split Push if you can 1v1 the Enemy Top Laner OR you have .

DO NOT SPLIT PUSH JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE YOUR .

Grouping up with the Team is always the Safest and Smart Choice.

is great at Sieging due to his Low CD Pokes.

WARNING: 's Short Range makes vulnerable to Enemy Skill Shots.

Situational: to clear Huge Minion Waves OR Defend Towers.


Guide Top

Teamfights

is always about teamfight and PEELING while CRITTING squishies

Why would you not join a teamfight when you have 2 Aura items that are gonna be vital for your team? If you see a GP splitting ALL THE TIME, please let me know I will spank them personally.

The placement of Cannon Barrage is very important and this only comes with experience.

Press Q on Squishes and slow down Enemy Tanks. Keep it simple!

HOWEVER, I would recommend it to split the enemy team apart or to peel.
(you will almost never be able to engage with your ultimate...at least hopefully not)
