Why don't you upgrade Targon's Brace?
Also, is Spirit Visage a good item for him?

Hey, I've got one or two questions as I read your guides some times. The first one is about what item to rush :

That is the best item to rush on Pyke, yes.
You said this under, in another comment about Duskblade, but i remember reading in the guide that Cleaver was the best option to rush. I understand the AD potential of both, one with the bonus HP and one with the Lethality, but I don't know which one could be better, even in a slightest way.

The second one is about Electrocute. I achieved M5 Pyke no long ago, playing him Electrocute, and I'm fully satisfied of it, but I'm thinking about Resolve Tree as I see all the pro/other Pyke players run him Aftershock. Does both work ? Or is Aftershock way better ?

Thank you, and nice guide btw :p

I think you might be confusing this with another guide, this guide doesn't even mention Cleaver. I think Duskblade is better.

Both are viable, but Aftershock is a little better.

Wanted to post an update, because of this original build and to show others who are doubtful how great pyke can be once you learn to utilise him right.

33 games.
only 7 loses.

that is a 23% loss rate or a 77% win rate.

Do rates really matter? You as a support and laner can only help others so much, its a group reliability but for the majority of these games its been similar people i play with.

I think one major thing alot of people do going in to playing pyke feel is he is an assassin because its in his 'support assassin' title. I play him to set up the kills for others, Vapora showed this alot also. Dont go in for a kill, go in for an assist, dont force your adc out in to unsafe areas or when its not viable. Your assassin playstyle comes in with ganks when you begin to roam, or to help cleanups, and i dont double think using my ult to open up a team fight, its a chunk of health a grouped mass of enemy champs lose on the get go.

Vapora and Skittles put together a fantastic guide here!

Doing this i've hit Mastery 5, 10 win streak & my average score is S, i've only gone below S- 10 times and below A 3 times.

I think if people can look at pyke and still understand he is a great CC support with lane sustain with his passive, the huge losing rate he has on OP.GG would quickly convert.

This guide helped to provide me with a first time experience into not only playing as Pyke but also gave sense of how to even play him at least decently.

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel that rushing Duskblade is the best choice? I always seem to get ahead once I rush it because of the extra damage, maybe it's just me..

What do you think about using Frozen Mallet? It gives 80 AD (30 + 700 / 14) and 40% slow for basic attacks.

i think looking past the AD increase, you got to be hitting basics enough to warrant. Situational by far. Just like i run steraks as a last item sometimes because for some reason, the 'bonus health' gives me a shield. + you get the AD bonus and the AD from the health.


ive tested builds in practise mode for DPS too, vaporas full build with some changes does around, in the burst. W > Dusk proc > Q uncharged > AA > E > Ulti can kill a man where he stands. but leaves you lackluster for disengages.

Hi, I am obviously not the maker of this guide sry. But I would like to try to answer ur question anyway. #korrektmeifuthinkIamwrongVapora Okay, to be honest ur question is something that depends on a lot of things. Playstyle, Enemy teams squishyness, Elo or level of skill of enemy urself & ur Adc in this case. If u lost the lane and are going with ur adc midlane (which is pretty comon) then I would say it is not wrong but rather helpful to buy more def items. Especially in low Elo I would highly recommend Banner of Command it gives u bonus movementspeed which is quite nice and also u can passively push ur lost lane. It wont always work but mostly u get at least some farm-money and/or u force one enemy to stop ur minionwave -> he cant help in mid then where u are fighting.and then have the upper hand for at least a short while. So yes, u can totally change the build depending on ur situation. Dmg is not always everything. I like playing Pyke myself and even made a guide myself (which I dont name nor link here since I am not here for self advertisement but simply bc i wanted to see if someone else has counters already included) and the main things I go for while playing is Lethality, Movementspeed, Resistens and often passive push through the Banner of Command or even zz's portal. That aside in my opinion its also not completly wrong to go for something like Frozen Mallet either to support ur Adc or other teammembers more with the giving slow. Also do never forget, he might not get the health from the items, but he transfers it into Dmg. So for the Frozen Mallet u get 3o AttackDmg PLUS 7,145% bonus Dmg from the 7oo health u get. Which is not that bad of a deal (3o+5o,015= + around 8o AttackDmg in case u are too lazy to calculate ;o). Duskblade gives u "only" 55 in comparison but ofc u dont have its Lethality. So yea, go for builds which fits to the situation thats the best advise I can give u. There is not one complete build which is always the best. If u have more questions, feel free to ask me here or PM me. PS: He himself sugguested Zeke's Convergence in his item section btw which I personally did not try yet, but it would be an active way to help someone in ur team.
I hope I could help a bit at least. See ya around~

I shall add that banner of commans is not for sell anymore. Saddest news for me since a long time actually.I really liked the speed the resistance and the passive push of it. I am going to look myself for something nice instead for my guide. but its really sad not just for pyke but for alot of other champs like tanky karrma etc.
