Intro

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.

''Die first, then we'll talk.''
-Yorick


Anyways.There is no room for talking when going beastmode.I present to you Yorick the gravedigger [BEAST MODE ON!]


Guide Top

Runes

I use strength marks and quintecencess for early game boost of damage.mana regen per 5 seals for the mana regen in the lane for some spamming until u get the manamune,and u can go m.res blues for some lane tankiness or cd blues for more spammable skills.


Guide Top

Items

Starting of with meki pendant for extra mana regen and rush into manamune.then go boots.next go revolver for some spell vamp and then go bilgewater cutlass.spellvamping and lifestealing is nice with yorick.complete your Hextech gunblade for a boost on your damaging stats.U gain a nice boost to your 2nd skill which scales with ap.then u want to go a bit tanky so u can build a sunfire cape or just go rylais.both are essential.rylais procs with the 3rd skill so you can single target slow and get some extra damage to the 2nd skill also.i suggest though to go sunfire's 1st.then build and atma's for some armor,critical and a nice boost to your already good damage.
