Introduction

This is my first build so I'd like to get all the constructive feedback I can!

I have used some of the builds proposed on this site but find this build the best to use due to a lot of burst damage from spawning ghosts and to not get out of mana as most of the other builds do (enough mana to sustain a ghost spamming Yorick through an entire teamfight).


Guide Top

Runes

The proposed rune is quite simple to understand:

- Thanks to the Marks we still keep a high damage output through our ghosts and Yoricks auto attacks.

- Seals keep Yoricks mana up - I tend to use a lot of mana and with the problems all Yoricks face I needed something to keep me going.

- Glyphs allow us to keep Yoricks ghosts up almost all of the time.

Summoner Spells

For masteries I use Flash & Exhaust.

Flash - Allows me to survive while getting ganked and overall supports Yoricks escape.

Exhaust - Since all of Yoricks ghosts deal damage in meele I sometimes find a need of helping them reach the target.

Masteries

9 / 21 / 0

With offense I go for improved Exhaust, CDR and Magic Penetration so that the ghosts deal a bit more damage.

The other points I spend on Defense for survivability.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- No mana issues
- Constant damage due to ghost spamming
- Low CDs on skills
- Decent survivability


Cons:
- Not as high damage as a pure AD Yorick
- Less survivability then a tank Yorick

Items

1. Eleisa's Miracle - Very good item for Yoricks built this way. Since the survivability is lower then a full tank Yoricks I'll need the Tanacity (that I don't get from the boots). This item also gives me a lot of HP and Mana regeneration.
2. Ionian Boots - Cooldown reduction allowing me to spam my skills a lot faster.
3. Manamune - Increasing my mana regeneration and adding a lot of AD.
4. Sheen - For the mana and big hits (I'm grabbing the buff almost every CD since I use my ghosts all the time).
5. Frozen Heart - Survivability and mana (that swaps to AD thanks to Manamune).
6. Banshie's Vail - Additional survivability and mana.
