Season 10 Pyke guide Support/mid

By JLAD2701
About me
Hello my name is JLAD2701 and I have been playing League of Legends for almost a year now now and have learned alot in that time frame. I am mastery 7 with pyke and have over 100k mastery points with the character. I am not by any means the best pyke player in the world but I have picked up enough info to be able to hopefully make a good guide on pyke.
why pyke? Back to Top
Pyke is a character that is easy to learn but tough to truly master he is a support assassin but can also be played mid lane. His role is to secure kills and gold for his team using his ult along with being able to grab enemies with his q for easy kills. Pyke is also able to roam to other lanes and assassinate squishy targets with ease and cause pressure and panic with his ult being able to 1 shot kill at low health
Back to Top
PROS:
+High Damage
+High Mobility
+Good CC
+One of the best ultimates in the game

CONS:
-Cant build any extra health
-Squishy
-Has sluggish cooldowns on his mobility
-You might get hate from your team because of your ultimate

DOMINATION:


Hail of Blades Is the best main all around rune for Pyke it gives you a strong early game and still works well late game

Electrocute This rune is best for bursting down enemies quickly although Hail of Blades will do more damage if you can land all 3 hits. Use electrocute if you are going up against enemies that are dangerous for Pyke to be around

Predator This rune will give you the best ganking potential use if you are intending on roaming alot such as if you are playing mid lane. Predator is also useful for chasing down mobile enemies
Cheap Shot Is best used with a standard build it allows for extra true damage and works well since Pyke has 2 immobilizing moves

Sudden Impact Is best used in burst builds and predator builds since it allows for extra sudden damage when coming out of your w
Ghost Poro This should be your second choice after Cheap Shot or Sudden Impact it allows for you to get up to 20 extra ad through placing wards
Ultimate Hunter Should be your final choice in the domination skill tree as it allows you to have your ultimate up more often

RESOLVE:



Demolish This should be your 1st resolve rune since it allows you to take down towers easier
Bone Plating This should be your 2nd resolve rune since it will allow you to take more poke from enemy laners and allow you to last longer in a fight
Abilities Back to Top
Pyke's Health icon maximum health cannot increase except through growth (per level), instead he gains「 1 bonus attack damage per 14 bonus health 」.

Pyke also stores 25% − 50% (based on level) of the damage he takes from enemy champions as Grey Health on his health bar, up to 80 (+ 800% bonus AD), with an upper cap of 60% of his maximum health.

When Pyke is unseen by enemies, he rapidly consumes his Grey Health to Heal power heal for the same amount.

ACTIVE: Pyke winds up for up to 3 seconds, increasing Bone Skewer's range by up to 700 units while being Slow icon slowed by 20%. Bone Skewer can be recast at any time within its duration.

RECAST: Pyke hurls his harpoon, dealing Attack damage physical damage to the first enemy struck, Airborne icon pulling them a fixed 550 units towards him and Slow icon slowing them by 90% for 1 second.

PHYSICAL DAMAGE:
75 / 125 / 175 / 225 / 275 (+ 60% bonus AD)
Releasing the ability within 0.5 seconds causes Pyke to instead thrust his harpoon, hitting the closest enemy unit, prioritizing enemy champions.

If Pyke Silence icon interrupted during the charge, or the charge completes without reactivation, Bone Skewer is cancelled and the ability is put on full Cooldown reduction icon cooldown but refunds Mana icon half the mana cost.

Pyke dives into spectral waters, entering camouflage and gaining 40 / 45 / 50 / 55 / 60% (+ 1.5% per 1 Lethality) bonus movement speed decaying over 5 seconds.

Attacking or casting abilities immediately ends camouflage.

Pyke dashes, leaving behind a drowned phantom.

After 1 second, the phantom returns to Pyke, stunning enemies it passes through for 1.25 seconds (+0.1 seconds per 10 lethality) and dealing 95 / 125 / 155 / 185 / 215 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage to enemy champions.

After a 0.75-second delay, Pyke strikes all enemy champions in an X, blinking to and executing targets below 250-550 (based on level) (+0.8 per bonus attack damage) (+1.5 per 1 lethality) health while dealing 50% of the amount as physical damage to enemies not within the threshold for execution.

When an enemy champion dies in the X from any source, Pyke and an assisting ally both receive an additional Cut equal to full kill gold, and Pyke may re-cast Death From Below again within 20 seconds at no cost.

When you spawn in always buy Steel Shoulderguards and 2 health potions along with Warding Totem and head to botlane with your adc or leash the jungler. For the first bit of the game try to play safe and hook enemies with your Bone Skewer remember to always focus on the target with the least amount of health you can also try to combo Bone Skewer with Phantom Undertow for a good combo. If you are poked try to go into bushes to recover health using Gift of the Drowned Ones this will allow you to stay healthy during the early laning phase. If your adc is attacked by enemies try to position well and use Phantom Undertow to stun his or her attackers and hopefully save them. Hide in bushes to try and get the drop on your enemy. Do this levels 1-5 until you reach level 6 which then you hit Pykes powerspike.Try to poke down enemy laners down to half hp and then go all in to finish them off using Death from Below. Once your Steel Shoulderguardsturn into Runesteel Spaulders return to your nexus and exchange your Warding Totem for a Oracle Lens

During your mid game you should focus on looking for openings to assassinate targets around the map and help your team with fights. Try and also ward areas and scan for enemy wards to deny them vision. Try and focus on low health targets or targets that are squishy and can be bursted down easily. As a rule in general try to avoid targeting tanks alone if they have most of their health especially Dr. Mundo as your burst probably isn't enough to bring them down to enough health to use Death from Below. Late game is very similar to mid game however most enemies will start to kill you quickly due to your low health however Death from Below allows you to remain a constant threat. Stick with your team and try to stun and hook as many weak targets in teamfights such as the enemy ADC and use Death from Below to finish off any low health targets just try not to get hit with CC since pyke is rather weak against it. Use Ghostwater Dive to chase after any enemies that are weak or escape to regain health with Gift of the Drowned Ones. Once you have all your items sell your Pauldrons of Whiterock and replace it with a Edge of Night or Maw of Malmortius if the enemy has alot of ap damage.

When you first spawn in buy a Long Sword and a Refillable Potion and head down to midlane. Most of the match ups in midlane are not in Pyke's favor but that doesn't mean they are impossible. Early levels you will want to safe farm by last hitting minions and try to pull a champ to you using Bone Skewer and using Phantom Undertow to stun and run away. Once you have enough gold for a Tiamat head back to base and buy it you can use its active to reset your auto and get better waveclear. Once you hit level 6 try and be on the lookout in different lanes to be able to help out by ganking and using Death from Below to secure a kill and split the gold.
Back to Top
During the mid game you will want to keep looking for openings in other lanes to help out while holding your own lane. Your first item should be a Ravenous Hydra also try to help out on dragon if your team try's to take it. During late game you should try to help out in teamfights and secure kills with Death from Below. If enemys are alone in lanes try to sneak up and assassinate them. Always when not roaming to different lanes to pick up kills always stick with your team since Pyke is easily killed due to his low hp.

This concludes my guide for Pyke I hope this helped you learn about the character I will try to update the guide if anything new happens in the meta. This is my first guide to sorry if there were any errors in it. Good luck!
