Introduction



Hi guys !

Yorick is really fun to play.But we need a good way to play him.While he has a new mechanic like ghouls i think he is hard to play for some players too.But here is my guide to help you.
Now who wants to play a great Yorick and buy him the slash skin.

Pros / Cons

-Good Burst Damage

-Ghouls

Cons:

-Not the best DPS

-I think Morello doesnt like him


Guide Top

Runes

There are two choises for marks.I think both are good but i have marks because i already have them. marks makes your early game somewhat easier but a.pen marks works whole game.
I have take and for seal and glyps so we can have a little defence too.But you can take Greater Glyph Of Replenishment too if you have trouble with your mana.But should make the trick once you get it.


Guide Top

Masteries

Somewhat DPS masteries. works well with your manamune.


Guide Top

Items

Nothing suits him like a manamune.While you can keep spamming your ghouls you will have better AD and healt regen.

I take AS boots as a dps but if the enemy has too many CCs or casters would suit you better.

As egoisticalnoob says it suits Yorick way better than Phantom Dancer.Because ıt adds AD and provides CDR to increase your skills and it has some a.pen too.Its active can be used on 1vs1 or just to escape.

Its a cool item for Yorick too.I prefer to use it than youmuu's.
Huge AS boost allows you to farm easily and complete the build way faster.Mov.speed boost allows you get back in the lane faster or chase someone or escape.And ıts %30 critical chance allows you to hit like crazy and with its a %55 crit.chance which means one of your 2 strikes is crit.So i prefer using Phantom Dancers.

is a need for all dps champs.

Provides you AD and Lifesteal which makes you strong on 1 vs 1.

Gives you some good HP and provides a fair slow which you can support with your W.



Situational Items



If enemy team has too much casters.

If enemy team has too much dps'ers.

Skill Sequence

His skills are really spesific.They can be really effective in good hands and you can have good hands with some practice.
Unholy Covenant Unholy Covenant - Passive:

Yorick's summoned ghouls deal 30% of Yorick’s attack damage and have 30% of his total health. The Ghoul's health is reduced by 20% of their max health every second. In addition, Yorick's attacks deal 5% more damage for each summon that is active.

Yorick's next attack will deal 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 bonus physical damage and summon a Spectral Ghoul.

The Spectral Ghoul deals 8 / 16 / 24 / 32 / 40 (bonus damage, added to Yorick's Passive) physical damage and moves faster than the rest of the ghouls. While the ghoul is active, Yorick moves 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% faster as well.

A great skill for a dps.With 4 sec. cd its devastating.Thanks to your manamune you can spam it like crazy and thanks to its mov.speed boost you can chase an ulted yi.

Yorick summons a Decaying Ghoul that arrives with a violent explosion, dealing 60 / 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 (+0.8 per bonus attack damage) magic damage and slowing nearby enemies by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 1.5 seconds. While the Decaying Ghoul remains alive, nearby enemies continue to be slowed by 10 / 12.5 / 15 / 17.5 / 20%.

Its damage doesnt hurt anyone but slow works fine.Can help you to chase someone.


Yorick deals 55 / 85 / 115 / 145 / 175 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) magic damage and heals for up to 50% of the damage dealt. A Ravenous Ghoul is summoned behind his target, which heals Yorick for the damage it deals.

It helps you to stay in the lane use it on the caster minions to heal yourself.

Yorick conjures a revenant in the image of one of his allies that will has 50 / 75 / 100% of their max health and attack damage. If his ally dies while its revenant is alive, the revenant sacrifices itself to reanimate them temporarily by restoring them to full health and give them time to enact vengeance. The revenant and the reanimated ally will lose 10% of their max health every second.

Its a fair ult.Can be used on the carry or yourself when needed.Can be used to gank or when someone is about to die.
