Off-Meta Pyke Tank/Bruiser Build

By Aas112mm
Recently i've started to play this build a lot in unranked games, it is not a meta build nor is it very strong, but i find this build very enjoyable while playing (Probably because i love the Pyke's attack animation combined with Titanic Hydra).

I made this guide just to purely spread the idea and hope that others can find ways to improvise on their builds and discover new oppertunities.

However as i mentioned this build is not a very strong build and it is for very specific match-ups(Like against Zed, Tank Top or bruiser supports). I do not suggest you to choose this build in Ranked unless you know what you are confident or you encounter one of those special occasions.
Basic idea of the build
Trinity Force:
The reason i choose to build Trinity Force is actually inspired by the Conqueror/Brusier Khazix build where Khazix builds like a Darius. I got this idea that if the Khazix build is so successful is it possible that i use the same principal on other ad assasins. Because pyke is still a lot of times reliant on AAs so i constructed this build around it.

Titanic Hydra
One of the struggles i a lot of times find myself in a game is that i get so easily killed and sometimes i can hardly participate in a teamfight because i just dies as soon as i E in. I contructed this build around having a lot of survivability while having a consistent damage output. Titanic Hydra just seemed like a good choice since Pyke is building tiamat anyway as a laner.

The Runes constructed for the build is based around basic attacking, very much like bruised/tank Khazix, this build helps improve the ability to gain lane controll and splitpushing oppertunities since trinity force is just such a strong iteam for both pushing, farming and fighting.
It is a pretty stright forward build so there is not too much strategy to it, besides this guide is not about how to play Pyke but rather how and why you would choose this build.

One important thing is that if you are not in a relatively large lead or building crit/damage items on the listed optional items, then you will most likely not win any 1v1 smoothly, i would suggest that you focus yourself on splitpushing, farming and roaming.

This build i much more ideal against tank toplaners that does not have burst or strong damage output(Like maokai, full tank malphite or ornn). Because you cannot kill them if you build lethality, and you are constantly bullied out of lane as they have much better sustain than you. Even if you roam they would still have the lead sin you are draining xp from Jungle and other lanes while they farms safely in top.

By building this build you will atleast stand a chance and sometimes even bully them out of lane, so i would say the best choice for this build is to go top, mid is also optinal if you are against asassins that can easily outplay you (Like Zed, Katarina or Leblanc).
*Note: donnot pick pyke against Katarina or Leblanc even if you build this build, this build only grants you survivability against them but you can never kill them.*
This is the third ever guide i have done, i made this guide just because i enjoyed it so i does not expect it to become meta or "korean" in any terms but i still hope that people will enjoy this build as much as i enjoyed it.

If you did enjoy this build then i would be thankful and if you have find any flaws or mistakes in this guide please comment it so i can fix it.

Thank you once again for taking your time to read my guide.
