An introduction to Yorick's Build

Before we start with the detailed explanation about RUNES and ITEMS that will make this champion a monster, you need to understand that Yorick is an unique champion that got so many tools to literally be called an one-man army, 4 Ghouls and 1 Maiden that together with the combination of runes-items will make Yorick to be totally unstoppable, while doing an insanely big DAMAGE he will also have an even greater sustain!

The sustain comes with the combination of our Runes and items that we will talk soon, no matter which rune version you will choose, you will see that to die is not something POSSIBLE at all! With insanely big heal effects, tons of HP and even more DAMAGE than ever!

Also cause of Yorick insane CC, one of the strongest in the game, you will also make a huge impact in team fighting, this build can be used for splitpushing if you want, but most importantly it will be used to make you the most impactfull champion in the teamfights, your slow with Mourning Mist that will also force the ghouls to hit and damage the target that will instantly apply 4 stacks from Black Cleaver armor reduction effects PLUS the movement speed bonus and Slow effect with Mourning Mist that will let you reach any target!
And of course your W Dark Procession that can trap an entire enemy team that wont be able to get out without either hitting 4 times the cage or flash/dash outside from it and that can be also used as ZONE CONTROL to keep them "out of objectives" or even "in the objectives" for example the baron pit or dragon pit and make them be "trapped" inside there while your ghouls, maiden and all of your allies hitting them from safe distance!

Here is good examples of a Full Late Game of our Yorick Build:

An alter Max Penetration Yorick Build that you can use with the same runes that will melt ANY TARGET:

With the tools that you got and the combination of runes and items with our build, Yorick will be the champion to offer you the FREE ELO that you want!

Let’s get started with the detailed explanation about runes now.
Back to Top

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!

From now for Yorick we will have two type of rune versions, for you to choose and destroy all!

Precision + Domination

For Precision
Conqueror Extra AD and 9% of your damage as HEAL, 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 gained back as HEAL, making you an absolute monster while also increasing your AD!


Fleet Footwork One of the most OP runes for Yorick that will give you HEAL plus also Movement speed bonus to reach any target, that together with the slow of Serylda's Grudge and the movement speed bonus from Mourning Mist will let you have so much mobility that it will be impossible for the enemy team to escape!
This rune will be super useful in situations that we dont have the time to stack Conqueror to receive the bonus healing from it!

Presence of Mind After the mana changes, this rune became a must to have, it will give you mana regeneration while fighting the enemies and mana refund after each kill/assist!

Legend: Bloodline 9% Lifesteal, why is this OP? The answer is simple, our build is about SUSTAIN and damage, lifesteal applying on your Q as well, making the damage that you are doing come back as heal through this stat, making incredible useful as the game goes to full late game!

Coup de Grace Extra 8% damage to low health targets!

For Domination:

Cheap Shot true damage after using your E or while fighting a target that got CC from an ally!!

Ravenous Hunter 7.5% damage to heal effect a must to have rune that will be combined with the healing from Conqueror and make you even stronger, note that we will also multiply the healings from these runes with Spirit Visage by 25%!!

Resolve + Domination

This build is more less mana focused build version so you will for sure need to be careful while using your skills, but it will give you much bigger sustain than anything else!

For resolve:
Grasp of the Undying While being in combat you will have the ability to do 4% of your max HP as dmg and also heal of your 2% of your HP plus 5 bonus health each time you activating it, that means that you will become stronger and stronger the more you fight!

Demolish Bonus damage to towers that will help you getting the faster and push all the way to nexus!!

Second Wind gain health regeneration equal to 6 (+ 4% of your missing health) over 10 seconds that together with Doran's Shield will make you have so much sustain from early till late game that you will be insanely powerful just cause of this combination of rune-item!

Revitalize Bonus 5-15% HEALS and SHIELDS, a must to have rune, that working incredible good with your Spirit Visage that will help you survive against anything by multiplying the Heals and Shields by 40% and if you got a support with a shield-heal like Janna Yuumi etc. will make you even STRONGER!!

For Domination:

Cheap Shot true damage after using your E or while fighting a target that got CC from an ally!!

To go for Taste of Blood is also an option here, we talking about sustain, so this rune is not a bad choice, especially since we are going to multiply this healing effect by 40% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage

Ravenous Hunter 7.5% damage to heal effect a must to have rune that will be even stronger cause now we are playing with Revitalize

**Here is an example of Second Wind regeneration, we will have 4000 TOTAL HP or even more with our BUILD, the moment you are with only 1000 HP left you will have regeneration 12.6HP per second (126 in 10 seconds) this amount, will be multiplied by your Spirit Visage as well by 30% (its a shame that Revitalize is not scales with HP regen a well) that means, from the Second Wind alone and without calculating anything else you will have HP regain of 16.38‬HP per second just from a single rune!

Now that we understood what to choose with runes, its time to move to the items and fully understand how to be the STRONGEST from early to full late game!!
Back to Top

Secret Behind Items

You got two options to start the game and both of them will give you similar results but with different prospective!
You can start the game with Doran’s shield and pot that will let you have hp regeneration that together with your passive will let you fight for as long as you want against any champion (especially the hard poke ones)! And cause of how gold efficient Doran’s shield to have stats that goes up to 300% of its cost, while fighting the stats from this item cost 1300+ Gold instead of 450 that you paid for! Making it insane powerful, but not the only option!
The second option is to start with Doran’s blade plus pot, AD, HP, Damage to heal, another item that we can’t ignore, even if it’s going to be early, Doran’s blade is also high gold efficient item, that its stats will be 200% all the time and not only while fighting, the stats from this item cost more than 900 Gold instead of 450 that you paid for!
No matter which item you will choose for first item, you will be equally powerful in the end, but for different reasons!
On your first back and here is where is the MOST IMPORTANT PART of making you the strongest from early to full late game, you will buy 2 more Doran’s blade the combo of the 3 dorans while only paying 900 gold (plus the 1 that you got from lvl 1) is going to give you stats that won’t be compared with ANY OTHER ITEM and with such a low amount of gold to have stats that worth an ENTIRE COMPLETE ITEM, also cause you will start selling your first doran item while starting buying your THIRD ITEM (never before that, we will keep the dorans items till full late game and sell it one by one as we proceed with the next core-items) that is going to be Spirit Visage and that means the Spectre’s Cowl item part that will give you bonus sustain and it will help survive longer in the fights!
Also in your first back if you got the gold (900-1050) buy also a Refillable Potion this will let you have health pots all lane phase long with only 150 gold that you will sell later on for 60 gold, so with only 90 total gold, you will have pots that you will use at least 6 times (2 times going back to the base) that means 6 x 50 gold per health pot = 300 gold while only paying literally 90 gold! This game is not only about complete items, is about small things like what I said above that will make you stronger than all, these health pots will always help you survive in lane phase, outdamage your enemies and end up being the STRONGEST till you get your first complete items to overpower them all completely, by playing with a start like that, you will secure having your items FASTER, yep, not sooner but FASTER, if you go and check out the stats while playing with our style of sites that got the average time that you getting your first, second and third item that will be compared with others, you will realize that the time that you got your items is not MORE but LESS than others!!

The next time you will go back you will buy Phage this item will give you AD-HP and a heal effect that will make you now even STRONGER!
Then you will buy Kindlegem this will give you HP and Ability haste that will help you spam your skill more and have better sustain!
Then you will finish your first MYTHIC item that will be Divine Sunderer this will give you everything that you need, AD, HP, Ability haste and an effect that will do 10% of their max HP damage and you will HEAL from that damage, making you have a lot more sustain than before that by combining it with everything from the runes that we talked above to be EVEN MORE POWERFUL!
Then the next item that we will focus on getting is as always and ESPECIALLY now after the new buffs, Black Cleaver a powerful item that will give you everything that you need to overpower all, AD, HP, Ability haste and two OP effects, armor reduction that will be activated from the physical damage that you doing to the target (hits, Q and your GHOULS) and 5% of their missing hp as damage with each skill-hit or while your maiden and ghouls hitting the enemy champions, this item together with your mythic item that we already got complete will let you keep fighting non-stop against multiple targets easily!

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, Ability haste, hp regain and 25% BONUS Heals and SHIELDS from any type of heal-shield effect from you or your allies, this means lifesteal and vamp as well! So let them try to "kill" you after this item!
The moment you will finish these 3 items, to go fight without caring who is against you is going to finally an option, cause of the combination of SUSTAIN and DAMAGE that you will have to die is going to be close to impossible!
For 4th item we will play from now with Sterak’s gage finally this item is going to be a must to have item for our type of builds, AD, more HP and two passive effects that make it super worth to be considered as a choice, heal for each target you are damaging our taking damage from with up to 5 stacks, this will give you heal per second around 80-100 HP and a SHIELD EFFECT that will make you sustain more while fighting against all, the shield also goes up with the more stacks you got (the more target you damage or taking damage from) and will be multiplied by Spirit Visage and Revitalize by 40%

Now lets talk about the last item that we will be playing with our Yorick Monster, you got the following options:

1. Serylda's Grudge why this item so powerful and a choice that we will always get first no matter what? AD, 30% ARMOR PENETRATION, ability haste and the ability to have a slow effect with your SUMMONS AS WELL, that’s right, the slow effect from this item will be applied on Ghouls and your Maiden as well, making them apply 30% slow with each hit, that means ALONE one of the most powerful tools to have, you will already have insanely big amount of sustain with the rest of items and runes, so to go for an only damage-utility option as last item is a must!
2. Death’s dance not as powerful as before, but still extremely useful, AD, Armor, ability haste and two effects, a burst to physical damage over time effect that will help you sustain more and with each kill/assist heal restore over time, just like sterak!
3. Dead man’s plate a more utility-sustain option that will give you HP, Armor, movement speed bonus and another speed bonus that will also slow the target at full stacks, you can easily play with this, but if you want to maximize the damage go for the option 1!

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 Legend: Bloodline + Last Rites and Spirit Visage!

After finishing our full build, you will be able to 1v3 or 1v4 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!

Now that you fully understanding how the items and runes working together you are finally ready Balorian to go and DOMINATE against all! Be sure to check the different match ups games to understand how to play against certain champions and enjoy your FREE ELO!

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.
