7. Skill sequence
PASSIVE Grog Soaked Blade: This means that Gangplank's basic attacks apply a poison wich also slows the target for 7%. This effect also works when you use Parrrley.
Parrrley(Q): This is a ranged abilitie wich apply's on hit effects such as Grog Soaked Blade and Frozen Mallet. If you kill an enemy with Parrrley you will get bonus gold.
Remove Scurvy(W): This will heal Gangplank slightly but it will remove all debuffs that are applied on Gangplank. This can be helpfull against snares et cetera.
Raise Morale(E): This gives all nearby allies bonus movement speed and attack damage when activated. It's passive will give Gangplank bonus movement speed and attack damage, when activated this effect will be raised.
Cannon Barrage(R): This is Gangplank's ultimate wich is castable around the whole world. This will apply a slow on all the enemy's that walk in it's effect zone. this will give you the oppotunity to chase after some enemy's.
I'm taking the masteries wich give me massive bonus attack damage and wich let me deal bonus damage at farming, this will make it easier to farm much minions. I'm taking the bonus damage on towers to get them down much easier. The cooldown reduction will give you a bigger opportunity to use Parrrley to farm minions to get bonus gold. I build Gangplank for some high critchance so that i hit double damage early. I take some bonus mana regen to help me with my high mana cost early game.
Greater Seal of Defense: These seals give 0.15 armor per level(2.7 armor at champion level 18) each. This will give you the armor you need to survive at solo top.
Greater Glyph of Mana: These glyphs give 11.25 mana each. This gives you some more mana to start with, that makes it easier to stay in fight a little longer.
Greater Mark of Critical Chance: These marks give 0.93 critical strike chance each. This will give you the chance to fight 1 vs 2. You have to play safe as you normally have to but it's easier to kill an enemy.
Greater Quintessence of Replenishment: These quintessences give 1.25 mana regen each. This will give you a little bit more mana to use your expensive abilities early game.
I hope you will get far with this guide, it works perfectly for me. If you are going to test it place your experriences in the commends, only when you have tested it in PvP.
