This is a guide to the champion, Yorick, The Gravedigger. This guide will show you how to build Yorick.
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.''
This is to tell you how to farm more gold. You can get Blue Buff sooner in game so you can farm more because of the extra Mana Regen. You can just Last Hit ALL THE TIME and thats the best way to farm.
Ionian Boots - It is useful because you it reduces your cooldowns by 15%.
Frozen Mallet - It is useful because of the amount of HP, the damage, and the Slow that helps you catch people.
Warmog's Armor - It is useful because of the Health and Health Regen.
Atma's Impaler - It is useful because of the Armor, the Critical Strike Chance, and the Damage it gives.
Banshee's Veil - It is useful because of the Magic Resist, the HP, and the Block 1 Spell each 30seconds.
Sunfire Cape - It is useful because of the HP, the Armor, and the 40damage.
Thornmail - It is a good item if you're facing some heavy AD champs like Tryndamere.
Greater Mark of Desolation - The Champion, Yorick is ALL AD, so you should have this.
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration - The Champion, Yorick has low Mana and Mana Regen, so this is a good choice.
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction - This is useful because it reduces your Cooldown, so you can spalm your abilities.
Greater Quintessence of Desolation - The Champiom, Yorick is ALL AD, so you should have this. Yorick have NOTHING to do with Ability Power.
Unholy Covenant - It is the passive that lets you do more damage, and the more ghouls there are, the more damage you deal.
Omen of War - This is the skill that Yorick's next attack deals more damage and you can summon a Spectral for up to 5 seconds, it can move faster and same for you when the ghoul is active. This is a good skill to hunt down enemies and get away with the extra speed.
Omen of Pestilence - This is the skill that Yorick will summon a Decaying Ghoul that will arrive with an explosion that will slow the enemies, while the Decaying Ghoul is alive, the nearby enemies will be slowed for 5seconds. This is a good skill to hunt down enemies and get away with the extra speed too. The Decaying Ghoul will stay alive up to 5 seconds.
Omen of Famine - This is the skill that Yorick will summon a Ravenous Ghoul behind his target's back and steal some HP and when the Ravenous Ghoul hit something you will get the amount of HP it hits and the Ravenous Ghoul will stay alive up to 5 seconds.
Omen of Death - This is Yorick's ultimate skill, it will make another image(Revenant) of one of Yorick's ally or himself and the revenant can attack his enemies. If Yorick or his allies died, the revenant will sacrifice himself to revive the Yorick or his allies. There is not much time for you to stay alive because you will some HP each second so you need to revenge as fast as you can.
In Early Game, if you want to stay in the lane longer and farm, you need Omen of Famine because it can steal your target's HP, so I suggest you to max this skill first. The second skill you should max out is Omen of Pestilence because of the range and it can slow your opponent's. The last skill to max is Omen of War because it is not a ranged skill, so you should max the other skills first.
