Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hey Everyone, This is my first build, and probably not my last.
This is a high AD build to take advantage of your Q as it uses 100% of you attack damage.
Pros / Cons
- Great damage throughout the game
- Very High DPS
- Not Very Squishy
- A Slow And Life-steal
- Great Pusher
- Amazing Ultimate
- Mana Problems early game
- Item Reliant
Sword of the Occult
This item list is very vague and a more adapted build may come along but, this for now is how i have been playing him. Though you may have some questions about this item in particular.
Sword Of The Occult
Personally I will build this item because I have been doing well with this champion. But, What happens when i'm not doing well ? well personally I will get another item that will build Armour or Magic Resistance. Firstly if im against an AD champ i will build aBecause it gives armour, Attack Damage and Lifesteal, also gives a free ward every 3 Minutes. If you laning against a AP champ i woild suggestAs the Hexdrinker had Attack damage and Magic resist, also a useful passive that will shield you from 300 incoming magic damage.
This is the Sequence i use the skills:
First i try to get a stun from the champ you are laning with, but if you arent lanin with someone who can stun try and get a mid-laner like Ashe to fire a Enchanted Crystal Arrow first.
Repeat above until there retreating with low HP. Then hit em with the ignite.
Personally i use
For escaping, as he isn't the quickest champion in the world
Dunno why. I have problems finishing the job, so i have this little gem to do it for me.
Other Viable Spells
Useful for all champions and a great escape method. Use it if you think the Boots Of Swiftness will be enough
Also a viable option especially for lane ganks.
You can use this for any mana troubles you have early game, and can scale to Mid and late game for that little bit extra mana.
I wouldn't recommend any other summoner spells, but if you like them by all means use them =)
Personally i have found laning with a high DPS carry or someone who can stun often. Ashe and Taric are the two best people to lane with so far. Taric has a good stun with healing for you lack of lifesteal early game. Ashe is very useful when you hit level 6 because once she gains her B.F. Sword she will have high DPS, making pushing your lane easier with a duplicate Ashe doing the same damage.
Last note, This is only a GUIDE this is here for you to use and adapt in your own way, it may not be the best out there but it is how i play and have fun with Yorick, The Gravedigger !
