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.
Hello Everyone and welcome to my first build.
I've done the time with gangplank and looked at endless amounts of builds so that i could be successful at 'Gangplank'. When i was playing with my mates a few weeks back, i decided to mix it up a little try actually reading the items and understanding how this will help 'Gangplank'.
This is how it is...
*TEAM 1 GP: 3V3 MASTERIES
*TEAM 2 GP: 5V5 MASTERIES
*THIS BUILD IS A LOT SIMILAR TO "GANGPLANK: DENY" (IT IS TO AN EXTENT I CHANGE A FEW THINGS AROUND TO SUIT MY COMFORTABILITY, GIVE MY BUILD A TRY AND SEE IF YOU LIKE IT OR NOT).
*BTW AWESOME BUILD, GRATZ TO THAT GUY. ^^^^
*I HAVEN'T YET GIVEN A STRATEGY BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF EXPERIENCE.
First off, i built full "critical chance" because with this build you don't get most of your "critical chance" till about mid game.
NOTE: *If you are buying these runes just to try this build don't bother.
*It will cost you a lot of 'Influence Points' (Est. 10k+)
It's vital for 'Gangplank' to have speed, whether it's running away or chasing. It is recommended for him, because he has such a high crit chance and has a physical damage skill "Parley" which and cause massive damage early game.
I Always throw in a "Exhaust" because you never know when a "Yi" or "Xin Zhao" might gank you.
You can have other spells it's up to you and your comfortability with him.
Some people say "why Sheen?". Sheen is good for increasing the damage of your next standard attack by 100% & with a crit can cause some serious damage.
And it also gives you the mana boost when you buy the crystal, so you can spam parley as many times as you like.
I go for "Sapphire's Crystal", "Health Potion" and "Mana Potion" try to stay back and only use parley to save a friend or do a little damage to squishy characters.
Then Complete the "Sheen" and "Sorcerers Shoes".
After the Fist two items you should be coming into mid game around the 25 minute mark.
By now you should have gotten or close to getting "Cloak of Agility", try go for the "B.F Sword" first if not then go for whatever you can.
Coming close to end-game and with your "Remove-Scurvy" maxed out you should be healing quite a lot for level 12 - 15 (around 400hp).
You should already by now know what team is going to win, but try and help your team out with ganks and surprise attacks with your ultimate "Cannon Barrage", to bring home the victory.
By end game you should be quite unstoppable if played correctly.
And that concludes my 'Gangplank' build.
Please give me some positive feedback so i can make some changes.
