Threats & Synergies
You will almost never beat her, out damage her, or out scale her. If you ever encounter this matchup pray for jungle and all in when R/W is on cooldown.
Very tank and hard too out damage early on. Play passive until 6 when you can get maiden and get the high magic damage.
Lane bully through and through. Dodge her E and then combo her, she cant do much after.
Big bully early in the game. !DO NOT FIGHT TRY TO TRADE! He is an early game stomper, get xp and safe farm and outscale him. Stupid fights is how you lose lane.
His ultimate will take you away from all minions and maiden, and then remove them from the game if summoned in the shadow realm. Past that, not very mobile and doesn't have an escape from W besides flash.
Dorans shield and second wind negate his bleed. Kite him and all in him with minions up and cage. He doesn't scale into team fights well, end his game at the beginning,
Can eat Maiden and spit her out under his tower, which messes with her AI and 50/50 chance she sits under tower and dies. Kench is a lane bully that you just need to kite and farm agaisnt.
Hurts hard from levels 1-3. After that E+W her and she'll be a goner in lane.
Hits hard, silence is annoying, but he's pretty immobile and can be kited pretty easily with good W placement. Just farm hard and only take fights when Maiden and minions are up.
Tiny Gnar is annoying and more oppressive then big Gnar. He can hop out of your W, if you miss your E he will get his 3 hits off and hit hard. Wait for him to use his hop and then all in, or wait for him to hit Mega Gnar and then all in.
A bit harder at early levels. Just farm and take good fights with minions and you'll be just fine.
He also scales hard, but worse at it and always prime to kill. Wait until you have minions up and then all in. He has little escape and not a lot of early damage.
A forewarning to everyone looking to playing Yorick, he is a buggy champion that gets 0 love from Riot. He is a champion with hard matchups, but once you learn him and get good with him, you will find that he is a rewarding and strong champion.
I've been playing Yorick for the past few months, and although my play time on the character isn't in the thousands, it is still quite enough to know what works well with Yorick and what just doesn't work well anymore.
You may be wondering, why Omnistone? Well, the reason for Omnistone is that it synergizes well with Yoricks kit with Approach Velocity and Biscuit Delivery allowing him much more kill potential and lain sustain. Magical footwear allows you to rush first item faster, and then Demolish and Bone plating allows better favored trades and strong split pushing.
And now, the best reason for Omistone, it allows you to have access to the best combat runes, catching runes, and escape runes at a moments notice. Being able to combo your Mouring Mist and Cage into Lethal Tempo or Hail of Blades allows fast kills and trades into champions with strong engage and dueling potential.
This guide will teach you why items, build paths, and combos synergize, and will show you what to do in the easiest, and the hardest fights for Yorick.
