Hello and welcome to karmafuLL's Pyke Mid guide!
I have been playing Pyke since Season 9. It's love at first sight for real

My Twitch link (drop follow if possible)


I am always happy to respond to questions so just drop me any questions on my twitch chat when I'm live and I'll help you out. Now lets start with the guide:
Its season 14 and Riot has decided to give us waveclear! wtf? so lets talk about it:

Why do we want waveclear?
So we can actually touch minions! We dont have to be like 3 levels behind anymore cause we can't farm, now we can! It's possible to get 10/0 pyke mid games with 10/cs per min now, abuse that ****. Always rush Tiamat first.

What do we do with our waveclear?
We can push waves to roam, we can grab waves to get quick xp before for example a drake fight, there's lots of ways you can utilize waveclear to your advantage, just gotta **** around and find out. Check my streams to see how I use the item for example.
If you want to climb with Pyke mid, you have to start respecting dodging. I will explain why and when to dodge:

Dodging resets every day on 5AM GMT+2.
1st dodge - -5LP, 5 min timer
2nd dodge - -15LP, 30 min timer
3rd dodge - -15LP, 12 hour timer

If you have a gut feeling to dodge, you should 99% of the time do it. Trust your gut feeling and you'll win more. The season is long bro, so don't worry about getting locked out for 12 hours, at the end of the season our goal is to get new peak elos not get 1.5k games, respect dodging and dont autopilot.

Also don't ask your team to dodge, they won't do it. I recommend muting everyone in champ select already and you can tell them "use pings if you wanna communicate"


- Team is tilted from champ select !!!

- 2 or more teammates autofilled or not playing their main champs

- If enemy has strong duo comps like

-- Twitch Lulu

-- Twitch Yuumi

-- Kog'maw Lulu

-- Kog'maw Yuumi

-- Lucian Nami

-- Draven Janna

-- Karthus Janna

- If your comp is bad and enemy comp is good

- Your main champions are banned

- If your teammates are on a loss streak

- If someone is threatening to ghost cleanse your game

RESPECT DODGING and you will start climbing, I promise
What are the main items we need for Pyke Mid and why?
Core items:
    - Profane Hydra - So we can have waveclear, meaning we don't fall behind on xp due to having to sacrifce minions to be at fights

    - Opportunity - So we can get out of fights after Ulting in

    - Edge of Night - So we don't get CCed and die instantly late game

    - Death's Dance - so we don't get oneshot (we can actually bleed in our passive and surive a oneshot that we wouldn't have normally

    - Guardian Angel - So we can **** up and die and come out of it. Enemy won't get bounty. Keep in mind don't buy if enemies can easily kill you after spawning

Serpents fang - Antishield. I recommend if enemy has 2+ shielders, but can be built vs 1 shielder aswell if its cancer, like karma or lulu.

Voltaic Cyclosword - We build this when we wanna get some extra tower damage and waveclear. Its also good because it gives you autoattack slow back, similar to ancient Duskblade.

Youmuu's Ghostblade - If we wanna have better engage and fast tempo on the map, but keep in mind, Opportunity also gives movement speed to us via extra lethality out of combat.

-Maw of Malmortious - We go this against heavy AP and as third item+

Axiom Arc - If we want to to E > R > R combo after getting 2 takedowns with ult.

You don't build these items every game but you need to know when to buy what.
Just survive lane. You have tp so once you get poked out you can reset and come back easily.

- You must get as much CS as possible. Don't miss minion xp.

- Try your best to dodge poke, use your brain to predict how they enemy will attack you and sidestep it.

- Always be ready to help your jungler, your map presence is really huge early-mid game. Tell your jungler to force objectives, dives, etc.

Basically: Wait for your jungle and perma roam.
You should roam after your wavestate is good on mid. This is why we go tiamat first.

Keep in mind:
- Enemy summs cd (ask if you dont know)
- Enemy dash/heals cd

After a successful roam just back and go back to mid. Wait 'till ult is up and repeat.

The ideal time to roam is after your jungle ganks you and helps you shove in the wave. Shoving is crucial as it denies XP and gold for the enemy midlaner

Buy lens after getting first item. Lens the bushes you walk through when you roam.

Second tip is to start walking topside on lane then W, but then turn around and go bot. The enemy will then spamping top with warning pings, but actually you're going bot :Trollge:.
You are really strong early. Look for picks in top/mid/bot and be sure to help your jg in the river or his jungle or on invades if he needs help.

You can ideally roam starting at level 3, when you have all abilities unlocked. Your roams go really strong level 6 because of your ultimate.
Look for roams and stay in sidelane with TP up and farm. Don't fall behind in xp, or you're ****ed. 1 level is worth around 700 gold in stats, do not disrespect it.

Be sure to be there for objectives as you're really strong in a mid-game fiesta.
Late game you just need to not get caught, just be safe and follow your team. If they give you something to work with, you work with it. If they don't, you keep on waiting 'till they do. You can't do much as pyke mid alone, but if you are like 2 levels ahead you can 1v1 people.
Honorable mentions:
- E > Qstab > Flash > Auto > Tiamat > Auto > Auto
- E > R > Qpull into team
- Qpull > E > R (outplay)
- Qpull-channel > Flash > Miss hook > alt f4
Be aggressive, help your team, roam, win. Don't get into late-game, E before ulting if possible.

Ping enemy summs in chat so you can see when they come up (flash cd is 5 mins so if orianna flashes on 14:31, her flash is up 19:31).

Good luck!
