Yorick emerged on the haunted shores of the Shadow Isles – not quite dead, definitely not alive – still clutching his beloved shovel. He soon learned that with it he could act as a ferryman for the Isles' undead denizens, helping them climb death's many-tiered ladder. This proved a curse, as a gravedigger must "bury his quota" before he too can ascend, or so the legend goes. No one knows what "his quota" is. Yorick dug tirelessly, waiting in vain for the day when he would be freed of his burden. As decades turned to centuries, the shame of his failures came to a head. He returned to Valoran to find his corpse, convinced that salvation might be buried with it. When he arrived, no trace remained of either the mausoleum or the memorial. Hope nearly lost, he discovered the League of Legends, and there saw an opportunity to immortalize the family name he allowed to be forgotten ages ago.
"Die first, then we’ll talk."
In my AP build I get all my items to try and utilize omen of pestilence the most. Which allows for you to be able to slow enemies trying to get away from you or enemies that you are trying to gank.
In my Offtank build I build mostly for Armor but you can change it around if the team you are facing has a lot of AP champions, in this build I also have a higher priory on damage so that omen of famine to help you survive while getting focused in team fights.
Note, in most team fights you want to ultimate your ADC to get more damage out of the minions, or you can ultimate a teammate that is about to die to get him back into the fight for a short amount of time, think about your choices and pick which is best in that situation.
