Pros and Cons

Thx to sync1337 for this part!



- Can be an amazing farmer with ghouls and nice AD.
- Great pusher.
- Ultimate can change the outcome of a fight.
- Great 1v1 champ
- Amazing sustain in lane.
- Can be built pretty tanky with only a couple items.
- AMAZING harass.
- Passive makes him super tanky in team fights.



- Can be Mana starved if you do not build tears/Manamune.
- No escape abilities (besides slow ghoul).
- W ghoul scales with AP and will basically only be used for the slow late game.
- Q is great but only gives movement speed when you hit them.
- Ultimate can be buggy and wasted if not used wisely

Runes

YORICK
Greater Mark of Strengh
-Damage at the start of the game,good for yorick!

-This...This...IS SOLO TOP AND DOMINION RUNE!!!!
-1.Because you don't realy need that damage until ganking...
-2.Because you gain that exp so fast!
Greater Seal of Vitality
-Gives most hp from other seals!EPIC 200 HP!!!!:D
Greater Seal of Endurance
-Ooh 4,5% Hp!Belive me that this won't give you more hp than GReater SeAl oF ViTaLiTy
-TIP.If you want this item to give more hp than the per level hp seals...then u must have over 4500 hp..which we haven't!!!
Greater Seal of Vitality
-I choose it for Yorick's Atma Damage and for being with low hp at big levels,by low i mean 2000-2100,and why they are per level,because he isnt squishy early game and he needs it late game

-Free Doran's Hp at early game...ftw!?
-That is a lot of hp..trust me...

-More Damage for spells and auto attack and for minions and for ultimate(if you ulti yourself),also he has enough damage early game,and he needs it late game

-CDR is good for him,he uses spells not auto attacks,3 sec CD Q is good,and thats why i use per level,cuz he doesn't need it until lvl 9,and at lvl 9 it values as flat ,only 2% difference if u buy 9...

OTHER NEW OPTIONS!



Greater Quintessence of Spell Vamp
Greater Mark of Precision

YORICK DOESNT NEED CDR AFTER MINUTE 40!

Item Explanation

YORICK

-Damage,Hp,Life steal,everything in one item that's exactly what we need :)

-Buy another one,you need more life steal,more hp,more damage,it is enough with 200 hp,20 dmg,6 life steal/220 hp,10 dmg,10 armor,8 hp per 5 sec,in a 950 gold item combo right?

-You are based on spells,and thats why you should buy it
Alternatives: Mercury's Treads , Ninja Tabi,for protection,depends on enemies,Hard CCs,Hard DPS,etc, Ionian Boots of Lucidity are good only for 3v3 IMO...but u can take it on 5v5 and dominion too...

-Damage,Mana,MORE DAMAGE,MORE MANA,spawns your goblins,be happy
-Helps your early and mid game!Also it gives you some nice damage late game...but it is kinda useless late game,so i take Guardian Angel in change!

ATTENTION!!!!
ATTENTION!!!!
You buy Guardian Angel AFTER YOU SELL Manamune NOT BOOTS!!!!!!!



-A lot of hp,now you are tanky (finaly)...with 3000 hp i don't think you will die so easy...
-Late game=SO MUCH HP!!!!That hp is more than 4000 hp late game>More than 80 Damage from Atma's Impaler->More than infinity>less than bloodthirster,(BUT it gives armor and crit too)
-The hp is imba as i said,but the hp regen is pretty nice too!

-A lot of damage ...like 70 damage,18 crit chance,48 armor in a 2300 gold item(at the time you take it...)...,very good!
-As i said..a lot of damage...and armor...crit not so important...but it is good too with Trinity Force

-Epic stats which helps you in so much modes...
-Epic Passive...that slow...
-Better passive...EXTRA DAMAGE FOR Q!!!
-That movement speed...

-Dmg Armor and MR for minions and for you ;P SELL IT AFTER THE BOOTS NOT BEFORE,THE FINALY BUILD IS WARMOGS ATMA TRINITY BLOOD WARMOGS BLOOD
-Damage and protection for your minions=Epic pushers...
-Also it is very good with your minions...
-Don't take it if someone from your team has it...

-U need Protection too!DON'T FAIL ME!
-Very Good stats!indeed!you must admit it...
-Very Good passive
-The passive realy has a big synergy with Omen of Death...also with zilean's Chronoshift

-Good Life Steal
-Good Spell Vamp
-Read Hextech Gunblade Part of the build...

-It is a good **** to take too,the hp,the damage,,AWWWW
-But u already have the slow from Trinity Force..indeed it isn't 100% but u deal like 3 or 4 attacks in the time of the slow,and the slow starts again...so it is pretty much the same if u attack him...

-I recommend this only if they have HARD DPS
-The armor from this is sooo good...but this is better than thornmail cuz of the aura!

AFTER YOU HAVE FULL BUILD!SELL Manamune AND BUY THE 7th ITEM FROM THE LISTS


Manamune is an early/middle game item for yorick,THATS WHY I SELL IT AT THE END(i sell it for Guardian Angel...)


Guide Top

Hextech Gunblade

WHY SHALL I TAKE HEXTECH GUNBLADE?


Well because of the followings
1.Life steal from auto attacks ftw!
2.More hp from Omen of Famine!
3.You are dealing damage with spells!

OK BUT WHY SHALL I TAKE IT SOOOO LATE?


Well because Omen of Famine is your buddy early game...,and you take Hextech Revolver early game,and helps you...so it is good!

SO,YOU DEAL MORE DAMAGE AND YOU HAVE MORE PROTECTION...Also that passive...

Atyorick you need W for slow at fb,then E to gain hp faster at the ugly moments of less than lvl 6,Q to make damage finaly,upgrade it until lvl 3,then upgrade E for more damage at range <3,i have such a balanced style...,now upgrade Q to the max,and then E and then W...OF COURSE U GET ULTI AT LVL 6,11,16!
Dude!

Summoner Spells

and ...This is one of the best combos in my opinion...i always use it...except for hybrids where i go ignite and exhaust...Flash is the best escaping spell of course...go to a wall and flash over it...,exhaust is the 1v1 spell which is my speciality...
GOOD ALTERNATIVES
Ignite-change it with exhaust,if he has low hp ignite and thats all...no luck in this city...
Ghost-change it with flash,no walls?use ghost and run for like 20 seconds like a ****** all over the map...
Teleport-Ganking spell,change it with flash or exhaust(depends) if u have a support/teemo/shaco in your team

DOMINION

Ok why revive?WHY THAT USELESS SPELL?BECAUSE!!!!!Every other spell is useless imo!And if you die(which you will certantly do),you can press that button,and go back do the fight,or capture their points,even better!Go revive,go movement shrine,and then you take that stupid point!

Why?DOMINION IS ALL ABOUT TAKING POINTS!NOT KILLING!With this little bossy thing,you will push like hell!

Tips

Omen of War resets the attack timer, much like Nasus' Siphoning Strike. For this reason it is better to cast it immediately after an autoattack for increased damage output.
Try to keep an Omen of War ghoul alive as often as possible, as it gives significant bonus magic damage and a significant movement speed boost.
Omen of Pestilence and Omen of Famine give Yorick reasonable burst, but they are not his primary source of DPS.
A well timed Omen of Pestilence can help to evade skillshots such as Blitzcrank's Rocket Grab, Lee Sin's Resonating Strike or Morgana's Dark Binding, or to explode Teemo's Noxious Trap without being damaged.
Use Omen of Pestilence as an AoE damage dealer and slow, in a similar manner to Twisted Fate's Red Card.
Using Omen of Pestilence near a turret, when no enemy champions or minions are nearby, will cause the minion to attack the turret. This can increase Yorick's pushing power as the minion will deal 35% of Yorick's attack damage to the turret and increase his damage output by 5% while the minion is alive.
Be careful when using his abilities near towers, as the ghouls auto-chase and attack nearby champions, causing unintentional tower-aggro.
You can use Omen of Pestilence through walls and to check brush. The ghoul can also destroy pocket wards such as Shaco's Jack In The Box.
Putting some early points in Omen of Famine allows Yorick to stay in the lane for a long time.
The Omen of Famine ghoul heals Yorick for damage it deals, with its own damage being 35% of Yorick's. This is equivalent to gaining 35% life steal while the ghoul is alive and attacking.
Allies can Teleport to your ghouls. This can help set up ganks.
Yorick is an exceptional solo laner. He can use his Ghouls for zoning as a deterrent against enemy champs to keep them from last-hitting minions and to keep them out of experience range.
His Ghouls also allow him to gain minion kills and experience without having to put himself in immediate danger.
Alternatively, Yorick makes a good jungler as his Ghouls add significantly to his damage output and damage resistance.
Omen of Famine has the highest mana cost and lowest damage output of Yorick's abilities and thus is best used only when regaining health and survivability are priority and when mana is not low.
This also makes Yorick a great sustainer in lane allowing him to be able to force the enemy laner to recall while Yorick is able to stay in lane with his Omen of Famine.
With good timing, Omen of Death grants you an additional temporary ally as well as giving one of your allies a brief life after death. This is because the re-animation effect gives full health even if the revenant is near death.
By targeting one of your high damage teammates and having a ghost of that target can turn a fight into a 6v5.


IN SHORT

Don't use abilities on turret while champions near
Use W to block skillshots
Use R on a high damage teammate ex.Master Yi
Omen of Famine is a good spell for healing while in lane,but it costs most mana...
Use Q after you deal an attack,because the attack timer resets
W and E can be used through wall
Allies can Teleport on your ghouls
Check brush,kill teemo shrooms,active shaco's boxes with W

More Things

Keep your minions always alive in teamfights,or when it will be a teamfight,prepare...
If you want to escape and he is near,use Q on him,then W
If he is far,use only W,and find the first target to Q,and run
Use W and E to harras enemies,for low hp,xp,and gold for them
Don't use ultimate only for the revive
Trinity+Q=Fking Big Damage
E heals 35% of your attack damage...
Omens are strong,3 ghouls,1 ultimate (on you),and you=280% Of your attack damage
