Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Basically the idea for the name came about because while smacking people in the face withg my shovel as yoric i would scream, "AND YOU GET A SHOVEL! AND YOU GET A SHOVEL!" and so on. i basically decide to give him tons of health and jump streight into the better equipment, unlike some other people who start with less expensive ones. you may not be as good early game as some other people but end game you will dominate. (also note that his is my first build and it is mostly for me to remember what i should do lol. please tell me if you have any better ideas) i would also like to include a little vocabulary key for some terms i may use that you may not understand lol:
(btw i wil include this in every build i do)
speedy man boots- boots of swiftness
fist of the north star-- pretty damn hard
Master squeegie---- Master yi
a team consisting of some predefined annoying characters such as yi, trynd, shyvana, fiddles, teemo, fiora, fizz, kennan etc)
his runes are pretty self explanitory, they are to give him massive ammounts of health. when you have 4000 health and minions to fight for you, there is not much anyone can say to your face lol.
the masteries are for many reasons, the defense to increase health again and the offense are to give him and the ghouls some attack as well. having some attack is never a bad thing. i also wanted to focus on the cooldown for the minions, the faster your cooldown the more destruction you can cause.
once again the same story: HEALTH HEALTH HEALTH!!! the speedy man boots give yorick a DESPERATELY needed speed boost. THE GUY CANT MOVE FOR HIS LIFE!!! (maby thats why he died in the first place lol) then we have our overly precious Warmog's Armor which gives us what people????? thats right, HEALTH!!! you can never have too much of the stuff. followed by a spirit visage which gives us a nifty 10% cooldown reduction which is nice for our little friends. it alsogives us an extra 15% spellvamp and lifesteal boost when using our new favorite ghoul. next comes our frozen mallet. this gives us some more nifty abilities to slow out enemies. also, i could not forget the lovely HEALTH boost lol. a whopping 700 extra health and we slow the enemies. i needed to finish up the build with something nice so i figured, why not a nice big frozen heart. this gives another cooldown (a massive 20% in fact) we once again get another slow effect, only this time it is simply for being near our enemies. (they will be really mad i promise, especialy when you use your slowing ghoul) this item is not completely nessicary but is nice to have, so thats why i get it last but none the less, it is good to have. if you don't want the frozen heart as your last item, I would recommend an infinity edge, it is a nice addition to your attack damage and it adds the oh so famous 150% crit damage
I personally love to have that lifesteal to begin with. some people like the attack speed (which is useful no doubt) but i think lifesteal is just great to have. upgrade your omen of war first, but remember to get your omen of famine ASAP! im my opinion it is the most important one to have. the onlt thing worse than facing an enemy with over 4000 health is facing one that has 4000 health and massive life steal. (and the only thing worse than that is facing one who has all that and can revive himself at full health lol) using your omen of pestilence to slow your enemy and then your omen of war is a great way to catch up to speedy enemies AND get away from pesky ones too. the omen of famine just adds that extra sting to their end and a bit of survival to yours. great when fighting a team carlos
The summoner speells i choose for Yorick are heal because once again. HEALTH IS GOOD!!!! and clarity. when you are out of mana with yorick.....well, its bad so just try to use clarity at the very least.
Pros / Cons
- you dont have to look at your health as often as usual
- you can tank out turrets
- you too can now scream AND YOU GET A SHOVEL!!! AND YOU GET A SHOVEL!!!
- you can kill team Carlos with relative ease
- you will most like survive to dance at the end of the game
- as always you may have some trouble in the begining of the game but later you will reck.
- you might be able to solo barren (never actually tested but i think you may)
-you wont get the glory of losing (darn. that is my favorite part)
