Yoricks past before he came to the League of Legends...

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

Hello, I am new to the site and I do not really know what to do here. Although I wanna post a build I made up for Yorick. This build will allow you to be very aggressive in the late games. You can basically spam you skill all you want and deal more damage since you passive says that you need all minion out to do more damamge.

The runes I follow what phreak did, I do not think anything was wrong with it. Since you will be spamming skills you will need armor pent to go though armor and additional armor rune for yorick squishy side. Magic resist for the magic user attacks.

Get the basic items in the beginning, this item guide provides fase dps and infinte mana. The manasume is the key of the build because the more mana you have the manasume converts them into ad. Then you still able to continue casting enough damamge to your enemys without worrying your mana, Tiamit allow me to do a lot of splash damage in the game.

Skill Sequence

I think i mess up somewhere, I apologize for that I am still getting use to this site. So here games I perfer that you get W maxed for nuking and slows so I dont really think you need the exhaust since were in a gank fight. Gives Q max out second since Q was the one that was basically does his main damage. Get ult max as always last games to life steal but do get 1-2 on the early game since you will need it because of that easy death of yorick.

Summoner Spells

I perfer these spells is useful.

Ghost: Good escapes and to chase down enemys.

Flash: Quick to get away from enemy range and if you need a small boost to catch your kill go for it.

Clairvo: that why wards are made for.
Smite: You summon can does enough damage.
Heal: You have a healing minion why you need the heal???
Fortify: Dont really see why you need this...
Revive: Because of this spell, that is why some many players died to begin with. The main most useless spells in the game...
Clarity: This use to be my favorite spell, later on I found this is useless. Just do not spam skills and with my build there is no need for worrying about mana or you can get the blue buff.
Rally: I never used this before.

Yorick is an epic farmer, no worries he even has a shovel. See he is born to be a farmer and now he farms corpse to use materials for his summoning.
