An introduction to Yorick's Build
With this build Yorick become a really strong late game AD-type Carry/Tank Champion. You will be able to deal insanely PURE Damage with Conqueror rune with your Ghouls, Ulti, Hits and skills and you will TEAR apart and instantly ONE SHOT any kind of target!
So you will have Insane damage but is it just this? No, it isnt. You wont just have Damage to call yourself an AD-Carry. You will have 3830-4080 HP At level 18, slow effects with Hits, Hextech Gunblade and Mourning Mist plus the trap from Dark Procession that only FLASH will save them! Pure Damage-Slow-Tankiness-Armor reduction the combination to carry yourself to Any Elo with Ease.
Here is a TASTE of what you will do from now on with our build
Secret Behind Runes
With this build we focus on doing PURE DAMAGE, having a combination of DAMAGE and SUSTAIN at the same time and grow stronger as we go to full late game!
Lets talk about the combinations and why is worth:
We will be playing with Precision + Sorcery( Bonus: +9% attack speed and +10 ability power or +6 attack damage, adaptive)
Conqueror Extra AD and 20% of your damage to PURE DAMAGE, this means, while this rune is activated(and it will stay activated by the hits of your Ghouls-ulti) any damage will be done by your Hits-Skills-Ghouls-Ulti will be converted to PURE DAMAGE instead! By combining the Armor reduction from The Black Cleaver on top of the pure damage you will start tear them apart easily!
Triumph Extra GOLD per kill/assist plus heal!
Legend: Bloodline 8% Lifesteal, why is this OP? The answer is simple, our build is about SUSTAIN, by playing 3 Doran's Blade we will be having 240 HP, 24 AD and 9% life steal, this means 15% lifesteal just from the rune and these 3 items (with only 900 gold). The perfect combination!
Coup de Grace Extra % damage to low health targets plus extra AD after each kill/assist
Nimbus Cloak The combination of the speed you will gain from this rune plus the E + Phage will be INSANE, Nothing will ever hope to get away from you!
Transcendence Extra 10% CDR and extra damage for each % for more than 40% CDR!!
So what we have here, DAMAGE from Conqueror- Coup de Grace and a combination of SUSTAIN from any other rune!
The perfect rune page to destroy them all!
Enjoy your free Elo my friends!
Secret Behind Items
Lets start with the Items and our Items Strategy. I come up with this build after hundreds of different combinations, to create this final build that cant lose vs ANYTHING and ANYONE!
You will always start with Doran's Blade and Health Pot its the most important item for our Build!
At your first back you will focus to have 900-1400 Gold, and you will buy 2 more Doran's Blade and 1 Refillable Potion plus either Boots of Speed or Long Sword
Lets talk why this ITEM START is important and why people cant understand its power.
3 Doran's Blade will give you 240 HP, 24 AD and 9% Lifesteal with only 900 gold(plus the 1 from level 1), you cant buy ANY of these stats this cheap and you wont sell them till you start building your 3rd core item that is Gubblade
So 3 Doran's Blade will give you enough DAMAGE and SUSTAIN (HP-lifesteal) to survive vs ANY kind of enemy, be it a "tank" or "assassin AD/MAGE".
And this is the FULL DETAILED answer that our friend "+aw3s0me" gave about 3 Doran's Blade:
Saves HP-Pots using, or leaving lane to early bc not able to REgain hp back back you got no pots anymore. Sustain is what every early phase unit lacks in the most. Let me show you what happens if you add just at lvl 1 Yorick 1x Doran's Blade with his EHP(EHP are your Effective Health Points)
Your true health vs a Damage type, taking into account your armor against it.[/quote]
Since every champ starts with an amount for both existing damage types, your shown Health at the bar, is not showing your _true health. It shows 500 hp, but getting hit by 500 damge, you won't die. Because of your natural giving armor which also increases over time/leveling up.
EHP tells you exactly how much damage is needed to kill a unit with it's armortypes.
That said,.. lets start to explain you what + 1x 80HP in reality adds into your EHP.
Yorick, lvl 1, 0 items Health: 580, AD resist: 39, AP resist: 32 Agains AD: 810 EHP <-- True Health Agains AP: 772 EHP <-- True Health Yorick,
lvl 1, 1x Dorans Blade (+80hp) Health: 660, ADress: 38, APress: 32 Agains AD: 920 EHP <-- True Health Agains AP: 878 EHP <-- True Health So adding at lvl 1, raw 80hp adds in reality:
Against AD: 810 - 920 = 110 EHP and not 80!!
Against AP: 772 - 878 = 106 EHP not 80 !! Since with every level up your hp/armortype(s) increases, so does your EHP potential even more increases and adding stats by Raw HP or/and Xress typ increases further even more the differences.
So adding this Doran's Blade not only increases your life leaching, it also increases hard your EHP/withstanding against each damage type ! And adds StatsREgain over Lifesteal while also adding damage. Result: +Sustain +EHP +Durability +Damage"
The next time you will go back you will buy Phage this item will give you AD-HP and movement speed each time YOU or your GHOULS hit any target, this means that you will almost always have bonus movement speed! After that you will finish The Black Cleaver
Then you will buy Sheen this will give you MANA, CDR and extra AD-Type damage each time you use your skills after that you will build either Trinity Force or Iceborn Gauntlet
if they have HEAVY AD carries, then go for Iceborn Gauntlet it will gives you SLOW, enough ARMOR and MANA to sustain them and use your skills all game long!
If they have balanced AP-AD type damages then go for Trinity Force, this will add you pretty much every single stat you need, AD-attack speed-HP-MANA and extra bonus AD each time you use your skill
Then you will go for the first part of Hextech Gunblade that is Bilgewater Cutlass, this will add you AD and 12% Lifesteal this means a total of 12% + 8%(from rune) + 6%(Doran's blades) = 26% Lifesteal plus an active Damage-Slow effect, people saying "WTF Hextech Gunblade on yorick? Why not just Death's Dance" the answer is quite simple. Yorick is a champion that doing MIX TYPE DAMAGE, your E and bonus damage from your ulti Eulogy of the Isles doing MAGIC DAMAGE, while your Ghouls, hits and Skills doing PHYSICAL DAMAGE, so to use the full potential of your damage, we need the Hextech Gunblade 15% lifesteal from any type of damage. Not to say that you will add, AD-AP and extra burst damage slow from its active effect!
Then you will build Spirit Visage this item is the next in order cause it will gives you what you need for the next phase of the game, HP, Magic Resist, 10% CDR and 30% BONUS Healing from any type of heal-effects, this means lifesteal and spell vamp as well! So let them try to "kill" you after this item!
After that you will buy as final item Frozen Mallet huge amount of HP, AD and slow with each HIT! By combining it with every other item-skill we talked about above, your enemy will NOT HAVE A CHANCE to escape, the moment you reach him, he will be so much slowed and you will have so much bonus speed from The Black Cleaver + Mourning Mist that even if they FLASH you will still reach them once again. Of course they wont be able to fight back, cause to get hit by you plus ghouls and ulti is something you CANT SUSTAIN even if you are a full tank champion Conqueror will do its job and penetrate through any kind of armor or magic resist he may have!
For boots you will buy either Mercury's Treads if they have hard CC and Magic Type Damage or Ninja Tabi for hit-type carries and almost no CC in the enemy team! Of course Mercury's Treads is always more worth!
Always buy Elixir of Wrath, this will add you an EXTRA type of lifesteal from your PHYSICAL damage dealt and will be added to your already INSANE sustain from the Hextech Gunblade + Legend: Bloodline + Last Rites and Spirit Visage!
After finishing our full build, you will be able to 1v2 or 1v3 any kind of champions, no matter HOW MUCH AHEAD they are, your ulti and ghouls at this point count as 2 allies champions, you gaining lifesteal like crazy and you will TEAR APART their HP easily!
Reason Behind My Spells
Lots of my Subs and followers from YouTube and social asking me "Why are you not playing with teleport TOP?"
and the answer is simple and i will give it to all of you as well.
Im playing always with Flash and Ignite or Exhaust, for the following reason, Teleport is a skill for any of players don't have enough confident in theirselves that they can DESTROY the enemy TOP laner.
Its as simple as that, Teleport can be used to Come back after a fast back or go to other lane and "Help" your team.
The reason all playing with Teleport is cause they want to find the "easy" answer behind the top lane "go help others and exp there", i cant judge them really, but if you really want to say yourself that you actually won the TOP Lane then you need to do it SOLO.
Destroy your enemy not only by killing him but also by making them build TOO MUCH ARMOR/MR that they don't need.
All my tanky enemies building full TANK Items, cant do anything else cause if they wont they will just die from me over and over again.
But by forcing them doing that the BEST WAY to counter them its to simple change lane, send your ADC TOP with your Support or your MID LANER TOP with your Jungle and go BOT 1vs2, after destroying TOP its the time to destroy BOT as well.
Doing something as simple as that you can change the ENTIRE balance of the game. The Full Tank top wont stand a chance vs your carries and their ADC and SUPPORT wont stand a chance vs your damage
I did this countless of times and always winning the game at the end.
TIP: Lots of you will think "but when my team needs me i can teleport there", NO. You dont need to teleport there. You can be there by foot, or if you cant be there continue with the OBJECTIVES, push your lane destroy towers take Dragons with your jungler etc.
Almost every rush TP to help BOT or MID Lane end up by being all DEAD together with you.
Cause when you TP, you suddenly change the entire MAP Phase, you going somewhere where you will be 100% seen and try to either Dodge your skills or Kill you first.
So go by foot, and go from behind them by using the FOR OF WAR.
This is the entire strategy behind what i am always doing.
If you watch my videos you will see that im right at what im saying above.
