Introduction

Hello everyone, this guide focuses on Yorick being able to chase people down and hit them hard. I find that the build is very reliable and makes you a very heavy hitter late game.

Runes

The runes i choose are very important in making you be able to crit more and maintain mana easier.
greater seal of knowledge and greater glyph of knowledge will help you at the beginning of games when your mana is very easily drain from all your moves. Because I like to harass enemies with Omen of Famine and Omen of Pestilence I try to make it so I am able to use these as much as possible without having to recall because of low mana. These two runes make it a little easier to do so
Greater Mark of Critical Chance and Greater Quintessence of Critical Chance are two very important runes for this build. I try to focus on being able to get Crits as often as possible and along with Infinity Edge which makes your Crits even stronger.

Skill Sequence

I chose Maxing out Q Omen of War first because the it gets the most AD added to its damage. I mostly use W Omen of Pestilence and E Omen of Famine for harrassment and because of that i wait until late game to upgrade them. Of course for Omen of Death i choose to get that at 6/11/16.

Summoner Spells

The two summoner spells that i pick are vital in a yorick build. Yoricks doesn't really have any escape moves so getting Flash is a great choice also if you are trying to catch someone Flash is a great way to do so. Other good choices would be Ignite or Ghost
Now i find that Exhaust is the most important summoner spell for Yorick. Yorick is able to slow with Omen of Pestilence but it isnt long enough for you to run in and get a hit in on the guy. So now if you Omen of Pestilence run in Omen of Faminefollowed by Exhaust you will be able to easily catch them with Omen of War which will increase your movement speed and help you beat him dead.

I go 21/0/9 for my masteries. The reason I go 21 in offensive masteries is to get the extra attack damage. As you can see every point I put in that tree increases my damage out put a positive way.
The other 9 points I put into the utility tree to get the extra cooldown on my Flashget a little extra mana and mana per 5 and extra movement speed to help in chasing enemies down.
