Hello, my name is xx_tank3r_xx and this is going to be my first build for Yorick! I have seen many builds on mobafire that suck sadly and i've seen many yoricks that suck ingame too! So i thought i'd share the secrets of making yorick op! I'm also going to make a ap mordekaiser build which is the most op build i can think of and i will help you guys go insanely positive in ranked games!
I choose armor penetration for red just and quins because yorick is an attack damage character and i try to counter his mana consumption problems early game with flat mana regen runes, the flat cd reductions really help to spam yoricks spells faster too!
Great 1v1 champ
Ultimate can clone a fed champ or bring them back to life
Can Deal out great damage
Not the tankiest character
Yorick can jungle but he really shouldn't he's just not the fastest jungler and hes not the most viable jungler.
yorick is a mana ***** so a manamune really helps yorick with damage and mana and this build pretty much shows how to build yorick as a viable character especcialy with his new buff!
How to use Yorick in lane
Yorick isn't the hardest champ to play but try to use all your spells while fighting for his passive will increase yoricks damage and the 3 minions can really do a hell lot of damage. While in lane you want to be as much of a bully as you can be with yorick because his minions are such a good thing to have! You want to use your q to last hit minions and then the minion that spawns will automatically focus a champion and then you can correspond that with using your slow minion and lifesteal minion to do a ton of damage from harrasing in lane. Yorick isn't the tankiest champion as many people view yorick as a beefier character when he really isn't until you have your frozen mallet. When 1v1ing a enemy champion yorick is unbeatable in 1v1 fights. Just spam all of your abilities and use your ultimate when you have about 3/4 hp incase you die you can still have a chance to kill the enemy.
Using Yorick efficiently in team fights
Yorick can really shine in team fights when chasing enemy champions and dealing out a ton of damage when using yorick in team fights focus their carry and spam all your spells off on them if one of your teamates are fed as an attack damage champion use your ultimate in team fights to put out insane dps with your ultimate.
When you farm with yorick use your q after an auto attack because it resets the attack timer and try to conserver your mana early game when farming because you will need it either to harras or kill the enemy. Yorick is a great farmer with spamming his minions mid to late game right after you get the manamune to not have mana problems anymore and do a lot of damage.
