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.
Thank fou for watching this guide and really trying it. I've been using both theses build to counter all my top ennemies whether its Teemo, Darius, Jayce if you play this character well and follow this guide, you shouldn't have any problems facing them.
After this quick intro
Welcome to my YORICK WORLD
LAST TIME WE OWNED HARDLY ( build working in dominion )
Yorick, Yorick, Yorick... This character is pretty easy to play but you will need a lot of practice in order to succeed well with him. He is not the bulliest top in this game but you surely can stick something out of this deadly champ. This guide will mainly focus on both AD style or a more Tanky/AD style depending of your role. They're not many difference but with some items you'll be able to really change the timing of the game.
The work of gravediggers is essential amongst the living, but invaluable in the Shadow Isles. There are many shades of death there, and each is embraced rather than feared or reviled. One can only ascend from one state to the next with the magical aid of a skilled professional. At the end of the first Rune War, Yorick Mori made his living as a gravedigger. His family owned and maintained the Final Rest Memorial, one of the oldest cemeteries in Valoran. The shovel he employed for his work had been passed down for generations. Each gravedigger taught his son that this shovel was imbued with the spirit of every forefather, and that those spirits would protect him during the long lonely nights amongst the tombstones. To his eternal regret, Yorick died without an heir, bringing the proud Mori line to a close. His body was interred with his shovel in the family mausoleum, and the Final Rest Memorial soon fell to ruin. Death, however, was not the end Yorick had expected.
Yorick emerged on the haunted shores of the Shadow Isles - not quite dead, definitely not alive - still clutching his beloved shovel. He soon learned that with it he could act as a ferryman for the Isles' undead denizens, helping them climb death's many-tiered ladder. This proved a curse, as a gravedigger must ''bury his quota'' before he too can ascend, or so the legend goes. No one knows what ''his quota'' is. Yorick dug tirelessly, waiting in vain for the day when he would be freed of his burden. As decades turned to centuries, the shame of his failures came to a head. He returned to Valoran to find his corpse, convinced that salvation might be buried with it. When he arrived, no trace remained of either the mausoleum or the memorial. Hope nearly lost, he discovered the League of Legends, and there saw an opportunity to immortalize the family name he allowed to be forgotten ages ago.

Mainly Yorick is a top champ you want to be able to harass them A LOT! That's the main purpose of this champ. By having long range spells it gives you the opportunity to harass and having a big sustain damage so the other top champ isn't even touching you. Later you'll see What IM Talking about :)
THE FAMOUS SEQUENCE THAT'S GONNA MAKE YOU WIN!!...or at least have fun XD
Why Starting with Meki? well there's couple reasons for that..YORICK IS A MANA *****...yeah really.. The main point of harassing with this champ is to spam your ghouls on the ennemie so he's not going anywhere else than to his base... so be sure to take this first. ( With runes and masteries you should have enough sustainabily with him )
Manamune=55You will need to take this TofG as soon as you can (with boots preferable) It'll help you to keep harassing your ennemies since you'll have more and more mana but it's also because next item will be Manamune..with this combo of items early game..no one can follow you
This Item will give you all that you need in order to FINISH your ennemies.. Mouvement Speed(Zeal)-Attack Speed(Zeal)-Survavibility(Phage)-EXTREME DAMAGE(sheen)
It's just an amazing combo you can do there...just look ..You rush in with you ghoul lots of damage caused by your high AD since you have manamune..then you're able to follow your ennemie even if they're running away with your amazing mouvement speed and then finish them with AS and Double Damage with Sheen :)
This is the survavibility at its maximum point...after this warmog's you'll have about 3k health which is amazing knowing you're doing 200 AD approximately at same time..
The finisher..Trinity plus Health Plus Wormog plus Atma??...You're crazy that's what they'll you..You will make some BURST of damage even if you're fighting against another BULLY top you won't even move backward since they'll be running the other way :)
Still like other items..you just want to finish off with the awesome combo of ghouls - survive and even if you die once ..you will reveive....fight again and if you die??? pop your ult and finish off the rest of the team.
Your Summoner's Spells
As for your summoner spells whatch'a want to get is whether harassing spells or just survavibily ones..you decide
This summoner spell is your best ennemy this is the one that I recommand the MOST and the one you should use..If you ever want to fight in and end your ****py guy your fighting against..or whether flashing away because you will get gank every 5 minutes..it'll save your *** for sure.
The finisher..from what I think it can surely be a great idea since your ghoul are doing lots of DPS after they're spawn..well you can finish them with ignite.. just as simple as that :)
Useful but a lot since you have your Q to make sure to catch up the enemie well..you shouldn't really take that SS but it can be good as well :)
IF YOU USE ANY OTHER SS PLEASE MENTION IT BELOW SO WE KNOW IF ITS GOOD OR NOT AND WHY :) ILL CREDIT YOU!!
Pros / Cons
Wins the zone game easily
Escapes with ease
Trades like a BOSS
Great team utility
Can tank MASSIVE damage
Snowballs with the best
Mana hungry early game
Damage drops late game
Requires good positioning skills
As for farming..you know all about farming is getting last hits..you want to practice in order to make them as many times as possible..since you have TotG or manamune don't hesitate to spam your ghouls as often as you want and you won't miss any blue in that second bar ! Believe me. At the end of the game you want to max out about 250-300 Minion Kills..and you'll hear VICTORY :)
Thanks a lot for reading this guide and playing it. I'll make sure to read all your comments and fix this guide as well if ever you have bugs or don't think an item can be good for this guide !
