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.
Obviously you need to sell the dorans ring for your FM. If you find the need to carry in a particular game, trade out aegis for atmas. Other good summoners are: teleport, ghost
I get exhaust tho, cuz the point of this build is counter carry, and exhaust is #1 for that, and it also lets you get more kills in lane, allowing you to get a faster sunfire.
Stand at your base by the lane your going to and shoot the first creep that comes out with your "E". The cooldown should be over by the time you walk to your lane. Always use it when it comes off of cooldown UNLESS YOU NEED THE MANA FOR HEALS. By the time you parley is level 2 or 3, you should be using it to last hit minions for farming your sunfire (which allows you to farm more and get more kills).
Team Fights: Slap down your ultimate where the fight is, run in and dive their carry and cleanse any cc on you. Use randuins, etc.
I played this build in ranked yesterday and went 18/3/ twenty something not sure here lol... but I also had bads on my team. Not my whole team was bad, just bottom lane fed early on, but i still got fed/farmed. I had my entire item build plus all the consumables (they had evelynn so I got oracles early) at approximately 40-45 minutes.
Well I need a 5000 character limit so I’ll talk about other things too:
Try to ask for a solo lane. It denies experience SO hard, I was approximately two levels above their mordekaiser and he hadn’t left the lane. He is a good counter-pick to people like mundo or mord or taric or any other healers thanks to his AWESOME passive.
See if you can get lizard buff often because you probably need it more than anyone else until you get your Frozen Mallet.
Since the nerf of many of the other overpowered characters, characters like gangplank and chogath have begun to shine again. I think gangplank is very viable in ranked and my friend has seen him played a lot at 1800 elo. You might think this is build is stupid and pointless, but from my experience it works better than dps and ill show you why:
You could dish out a lot of damage on like one or two targets, before getting focused down and killed, OR you could give your whole team Cooldown reduction (indirectly letting your team deal more damage) and dish out aoe damage and counter their carry without being too squishy, all at the same time!
I’ve tried both and for people who are actually good at gangplank, I’m sure dps is fun, but I’ve only had success with tankplank so I’m going to stick with that build.
