Reworked Yorick Changes

I am gonna edit my whole build after mobafire add new yorick abilities and stuff but until then I wanna talk about new skills and gameplay features about Yorick.

First of all you cant randomly spawn ghouls now. To be able to spawn them you need to kill at least 3 creeps/jungle mobs in a small area with your Q skill ( you need to last hit them) after you reach 3 graves you can summon your ghouls and all your abilities depend on your ghouls.

Check this fun video I made to have an idea about skills and stuff. I ll be uploading more content , Jungle Routes and Top lane gameplay videos for Reworked Yorick soon.

Jungle Guide / Introduction

Hey Guys I am Malkavian and this is my Jungle Yorick Guide. With this build you can Solo Baron, Dragon and Rift Herald. To learn how to do that please check this video and if you like it you can continue reading for details.

Terms you might see while reading my guide:

AS: Attack Speed
AD: Attack Damage
AP: Ability Power
MS: Movement Speed
MR: Magic Resist
AR: Armor (Easy one)
aa: Auto Attack
SS: Skillshot
TF: Teamfight
TP: Teleport
CJ: Counter Jungle



This guide is for jungling. First of all you have 2 choice to begin with. Blue side or Red Side. Each side has several benefits so I will try to explain as much as I can.

1- Blue Side Start: Route should be Blue Buff->Gromp->Wolves->Gank mid/top -> If you have enough HP go get red (if your enemy has a jungler who can steal your red)

Benefits: This route is the best route for no aoe or sustain champions. It keeps your hp in a good level so you can go to your red side jungle too.

Down Sides: Only down side is if enemy has a counter jungler they can steal your red buff. Also Red side gives more experience but nowadays it is hard to start from red side.

2- Red Side Start: I personally don't try to start from red side no matter what.
Route: Red Buff->Krugs->Birds->Crab->Gank mid or bot, If you have enough Hp go ahead and clear Blue side too since it is way easier than red side.

Benefits: With this route you get by far the best experience. You can even be lvl 3 in 3-4 mins. Great route for 3 lvl gankers like Shaco,Xin Zhao, Lee Sin etc.

Down Sides: This route have many mob spawns and if you dont have any aoe skills it is really hard to do it. It is time consuming but great on gaining exp.


How to be a Better Jungler:

As a jungler your most important job is being awere of map! Means you gotta keep track of enemy cooldowns (flash/ulti/TP) You gotta know when Dragon/Baron Spawns ( Easy with new patch you always see the cooldown but you gotta remind your teammates when Dragon or Baron will spawn cause they are busy with dealing farming/enemy harrass/ jungler ganks)

Always ping as soon as you decided to gank a lane. If you pinged a lane to gank dont try to abandon it unless you see a good opportunitiy.

Always buy pink ward and place it between top and mid. (yes that is your job!) So your top and mid laner might save themselves from 1-2 enemy jungler ganks which is good for you. Enemy jungler will lose time and buy sweeper (if you want to Counter Jungle) Always try to smite Birds for the vision buff and clear the wards around the map

Always choose a jungle path which gives you gank opportunities faster. For example: If you feel like enemy top laner will push ( Riven, Irelia, Vlad always pushes lanes :) ) then start with wolves go for gromp then take blue and you can good to gank top lane when it is pushed. But if you start gromp then go blue then you try to kill wolves you lose time to walk back to top lane.

Be efficient with you time. Do not waste time walking mid lane if your mid lane is pushed. Go farm mobs when all lanes are pushed. Also ganking top lane is always tricky after lvl 6 , DO not camp top unless you see neemy jungler close to their top lane, cause if you camp top enemy jungler can easily take drag.

Try to help lanes that has disadvantage in lane (Irelia vs Ryze/Vlad) ranged vs melee match ups are tough. So help your poor Irelia :) Dont forget that your team as strong as your weakest lane.

Runes

depends on how fast you attack in most cases. So you have to put alot of attack speed runes to your rune page. In my runes I have scaling and normal magic resist runes. If enemy dont have any ap champions you should definately change those with scaling or normal ap runes. The more ap the more the more damage you deal with your w skill.

Runes

Greater Mark of Attack Speed
8

Greater Mark of Critical Chance
1

Greater Seal of Armor
9

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist

Masteries

Masteries designed for soloing baron, Rift Herald and Baron Nashor. Solo Baron is possible with Yorick with only 4 items.


Guide Top

Items

If you build The Bloodthirster, Iceborn Gauntlet, Dead Man's Plate and Stacking Jungle item you are good to go.

In level 3 even without any items finished if you have blue buff you can solo Dragon. You can solo Rift Herald in lvl 9-10 range.

If enemy team has 2-3 Tanks buy Lord Dominik's Regards
If enemy team has heavy ap buy Maw of Malmortius
If enemy team builds heavy armor buy The Black Cleaver
If enemy team has many melee champions buy Ravenous Hydra
IF enemy dont have any ignite summoner spells buy Spirit Visage
If you feel like enemy focusing you alot buy Guardian Angel

Be wise and win the game easily. :)

Skill Sequence

In lane (Top or Mid lane) try to last hit mobs with your (Q) skill so you can spawn graves. When you have at least 3 graves nearby you can reacivate your q to summon 3 ghouls. Which is op. Most of yorick dueling abilities depends on ghouls. Your ultimate also spawns 4 ghouls with himImportant Note: if you have 3-4 ghouls active already do not press your ultimate right away wait em to die. Cause activating your ultimate kills your remaining ghouls and summon 4 new ones. So basicly to reach max damage attack your enemies with full combo with ghouls then use your ultimate to summon 4 more ghouls and a big one.


Guide Top

Spells

q: Allows you to deal (ad) damage to enemies. If you last hit you summon graves.
w: deals damage and puts a debuff on enemy which allows your ghouls to focus that target.
e: creates a breakable circle (cc)
r: summons a big and 4 small ghouls. If you attack the same target with big ghoul you get bonus damage.


Guide Top

Summary

Yorick is good at soloing objectives and suprises enemies with that abilities. If you enemy team dont have hard cc you can pick yorick otherwise he will be useless in a morgana/leona/naut/blitz/syndra etc game.
