Skill Discussion


  • Grog-Soaked Blade: Mini- Ignite and Exhaust for free?!?

  • Parrrley (Q): Flintlock pistol with infinite ammo. Here's what ye get:
    • Amazing harass and last-hits!
    • Excessive stacks of cash!
    • Applies your Passive....
    • It CRITICAL HITS
  • Remove Scurvy (W): When used correctly, Remove Scurvy is rage-worthy!
    Cleanse Warwick's Ultimate (for example) and enjoy the fireworks.

  • Raise Morale (E): Sweet Damage and the Movement Speed of Zeal in your pocket. Buff yer mates for even more fun during teamfights!

  • Cannon Barrage (R): Fight-winning guns every two minutes = Super-Powerful!

Items

  • : With the new (easier) jungle, you can be more cost-efficient!

  • : Amazing bruiser weapon!

  • : Necessary for the new jungle!

    Sheen makes Parrrley a PAIN and wins fights.

  • : Sheen v.2!

  • : Sort of like having King Kong in your pocket.
