Gangplank Lore

Gangplank was born the son of the dread pirate captain Vincent the Shadow - one of the most wealthy and feared pirates in all of Blue Flame Island. One might think this would have spoiled the boy with a cushioned life of privilege, but the truth is quite the opposite. Growing up in the city of Bilgewater isn't easy; pirates are not known for their compassion, and that most certainly extends to their families. Vincent wanted his son to grow up tough and strong, so he was extremely hard on the young Gangplank. Even as a child, Gangplank was as mean as a snake and is said to have slept with his eyes open. As he grew, the young man rapidly became the most ruthless and feared pirate in all of Bilgewater, and his daddy was never more proud than on the day of his son's eighteenth birthday - when Gangplank stabbed his old man in the back and claimed the famed pirate ship, the Dead Pool, for his own.

The Skills

Grog Soaked Blade: Gangplank's basic attacks apply a poison debuff for 3 seconds that can stack up to 3 times. Each stack deals 3 + (1 × level) magic damage per second and slows the target by 7%.

Parrrley (Q): Gangplank shoots a target enemy with his pistol, dealing physical damage. If it kills it, he gains extra gold. This ability can critically strike and applies on-hit effects, including his passive.

Cooldown 5 seconds

Cost 50/55/60/65/70 mana

Range 625

Remove Scurvy (W): Consumes a large quantity of citrus fruit which clears any crowd control effects on him and heals him for 80/150/220/290/360 (+100% of ability power) health.

Cooldown 22/21/20/19/18 seconds

Cost 65 mana

Amazing escape tool. This is almost like a low cooldown Cleanse with a nice little heal added to it.

Raise Morale (E): Passive: Gangplank gains 8 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 Attack Damage and 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 % Movement Speed.

Active: Gangplank fires his pistol into the air, disabling his passive boost but increasing his Attack Damage by 12 / 19 / 26 / 33 / 40 and Movement Speed by 8 / 11 / 14 / 17 / 20% and nearby allied champions' Attack Damage and Movement Speed by half that amount for 7 seconds.

Cooldown 25 seconds

Cost 50/55/60/65/70 mana

Cannon Barrage (R): Gangplank signals his ship to fire cannonballs upon target area for 7 seconds. 25 cannonballs will drop over the duration and each dealing 75/120/165 (+20% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies hit. Enemies in the area of this ability are slowed by 25% for 1.25 seconds with the duration refreshing if one stays in the area.

Cost: 100 mana

Range: Global

Radius of Target AoE: 575

Radius of Cannonball AoE: 275

Sight Radius: 600 (estimate)
Global ultimate that makes Gangplank a threat wherever he is. The damage on it is completely random and might sometimes hit everyone every time or other times miss everyone and do no damage at all. The rreal treat of this ultimate however is its AoE slow.

Why Ionian Boots of Lucidity?
Ionian Boots of Lucidity does cooldown Reduction, whitch is good because you farm with your Q and Q has a large cooldown (5 seconds). With Ionian Boots of Lucidity the cooldown will be less.

Why First Atma's Impaler and after Warmog's Armor?
Atma's Impaler does Attack Damage and Warmog's Armor not. Gangplank is AD and 1st you must do Atma's Impaler but if the game is going well you can do Warmog's Armor first.

First Infinity Edge and After Phantom Dancer because Phantom dancer doesn't Attack Damage.

The Bloodthister last because it does very Attack Damage and Life Steal for does a lot of Damage.

I use Ignite for a faster First Blood and champions with low health. Flash for escape. Gangplank's W has 22/21/20/19/18 cooldown and if you use W and you can not escape you must flash.
