Pyke - The Ripper (All Lanes Guide!)

By ButtILoveBoobs
Introduction
Hi everyone!

This is my very first guide and I hope to help some of you guys. :)

Do not hesitate to drop a comment below if you have any questions or doubts, I am happy to discuss about any questions you may have.
Laning Back to Top

MID LANING


Pyke is not the easiest to lane with if you're going Mid for instance. You will be against lots of long range AP champs or ADs like Yasuo and Zed which can be a bit difficult. However, you can still farm safely until your level 3 so you have 3 abilities that helps a lot!

JUNGLING


Jungling is possible but not recommended. Pyke is slow to level up while jungling in early game, your enemy can have advantage of 2 levels ahead while jungling with common jungle champs. However if you're good with the mechanics, it's very easy to counter enemies when playing Pyke, even if they're 2 levels ahead!

DO NOT FORGET!


What I have noticed Pyke players NOT DOING is using his W, it's a great way to escape and regenerate HP while in stealth mode. "W" is also great for ganks and engages which I will cover more in the "Combo" chapter.
Combos Back to Top
When it comes to guides, I don't often see the "Combo" section which I think is essential for a guide.

People want to learn every bit of the champs and tricks that sometimes can be hard to learn unless someone experienced told them so.

So...

"Q" COMBO


Pyke can get extremely easy kills with his Combo. You can always initiate your Combo by grabbing the enemy champ with his Q and then E and then auto until low health and when the enemy is below 25% health you can just R and he's dead.

However that's too obvious at the moment, all the players understand how Pyke works more or less.

So here's a new combo you can do.

"Q" FLASH COMBO


If you're out of range and you want to engage an enemy.

Hold Q to charge Pyke's hook, once you're aiming on your out of range target, Flash and release Q, then E to stun and R to execute! ;)

"W" COMBO


W so you go in stealth mode... Make sure you hit E properly, then once the opponent is stunned, auto attack, TAP Q, auto, your enemy's HP should be quite low by now, please press R. You got yourself a kill. ;)

"W" COMBO 2


W to be stealth, then Q and E.

"R" COMBO


Sometimes it can be tricky and miss to hit Pyke's ULT for instakill an enemy, so make use of it's DAMAGE! I sometimes when chasing enemies or 2v2 BOT lane depending on the circumstances, I might use my "R" damage first when I know it's a guaranteed kill to save time with its motion... I prefer being fully mobile at the middle of a TF and be able to dodge future enemies spells and enemies in case their Top, Mid or Jungle decide to gank BOT lane. For using "R" before low HP for instakill, I would suggest only 1v1, 2v2 or when you have advantage such as 2v1, 3v2 or 4v3, when you know your team mates are around and then E and Q. I think Pyke is a very diverse champ which requires your own instincts so there's a lot you can do with him when it comes to PLAYS! ;)

And obviously the standard ULT... Always have your ULT UP when team fights so nobody walks back home! It's do or die fight for the enemy team! If they're low health, there's no mercy! They will die!

(I cannot stress enough, please make use of your W!!!! It regenerates Pyke's HP!!! Alternatively once low health, have a walk around the jungle and your HP is back up again!!! I see lots of Pyke players hanging around with low HP which makes no sense!!!)
Pyke Knowledge Day by Day Back to Top
Players are learning more about Pyke's mechanics day by day as the champ gets known more and more.

As we were all unsure which lane was meant to go based on Riot's Pyke gameplay video release, now everything is more clear regarding Pyke's laning possibilities...

I'm confident to say that Pyke can excel in multiple different lanes such as TOP, Mid, Jungle and Support, although an assassin type of support for the team. I am always the carrier for my team because in Team Fights, there's nobody walking back to base with low Health!!! They will be executed with R!

It's either DO or DIE team fights against Pyke as you can just re-use your ULT if you got a kill using your R, it will be available for the next 20 secs to kill another enemy and that repeats itself if you're successful!!! ;)
Rep it up Back to Top
I hope you all smash and destroy them with Pyke! ;)
