Introduction

So why would you want to play Yorick in top lane and not other champions? Well first of all Yorick is a safe pick because he has a great sustain and only few champions that can counter him. So if you don't know what enemy team has got in top lane you can easily pick Yorick. He also has great poke skill set which helps him to dominate his lane most of the time and eventually push his enemy out of it.
