Congrats on finally overtaking my guide friend (been waiting awhile :P). I do not have the time to update my guide nor play league anymore. Glad to see a great guide took the top spot, well deserved! Upvoted as my time was over a long time ago but no one really stepped their game up until you.

Banshees veil over spirit visage ?

Ty For the Feedback Guys :D I haven't gotten to editing the guide a lot, but I will try out Hydra and maybe replace Bloodthirster.

IMO Hydra is better than Bloodthirster is better on Yorick.

Hey Hogopogo:

Just wanna say I really love the guide, while I'm not a fan of the tri-force build but your iceborne gauntlet build is wonderful.

One thing I would suggest is you might want to look into ravenous hydra over bloodthirster. The reason I build Ravenous as my big damage items now is because it tends to kind of compensate for yorick's weakness of lack of aoe damage. Basically with the cleaves from hydra, and the iceborne gauntlet procs you can start doing a lot of aoe damage which makes you much more relevant in teamfights. The lifesteal is also nice since as a tanky bruiser you will probably not be focused first giving you the opportunity to continue to sustain through the fight. Combine hydra with spirit visage and you've got a sickening amount of sustain.

Anyway, just thought I would share that suggestion, love the guide, keep it up :)

What do you think about using the Black Cleaver instead of the Bloodthirster? Black Cleaver has some HP, cdr, and tons of armor shred, which the ghouls aa quickly proc. (you auto and then reset auto with q plus with one aa from each ghoul the amror shread is already maxed out.) I think it is better than the Bloodthirster because while BT has more ad, the Cleaver makes up for that with the armor shred, and lifesteal is near useless on yorick as you dan't have any atk speed items. The extra HP and cdr > lifesteal.

This is my opinion. What do you think?

Very good guide, been using it for ranked and haven't come close to losing lane.

Hi! Teh Grazzh0pper here with the review of your guide:


Cheat Sheet

You can no longer buy 6 health potions at the start. You will want to change that.


Questioning Runic Affinity . You aren't the mid laner, so blue buff is unlikely to go to you.
Scout explanation is wrong, it's not the best mastery anyway (25% increased vision for 3 SECONDS). I would rather get Recall.

Personally, I feel that 9-21-0 would work out better for Yorick cause his poke can deal more. However 9 in utility is fine, I understand the rationale of extra lane sustain.


Might wanna include scaling MR glyphs as alternative if not facing AP top. At level 6, scaling already starts to outscale standard.

Summoner Spells

I personally would rather take Ghost for Yorick. Yorick does not have the initiate Flash-Hard CC combo that many toplaners possess, so I feel like the overall utility of Ghost, allowing you to catch up with people to do moer poke and damage is better.

Ability Explanation

E is also an AOE spell.


Won't really consider Frozen Mallet as "Offensive", it is seen as more of a tanky item.
You may want to consider MoM as a viable MR item, I personally find the shield very useful vs AP heavy comps.


The main reason why people play Yorick is to push and poke and piss the enemy laner off. Furthermore, his W and E, his main harassing skills, will inevitably push the lane if you want to bully the enemy laner, so you can't really try to not push the lane if you want to get the earlygame advantage, which Yorick would want to get.

Overall: 4.5/6
Apart from the points that I have noted, the rest seems fine.


With personal headings, you may want to consider creating custom chapters, cause seeing "Introduction" 2 times for example isn't the most pleasing sight.

Overall: 3/3

I can't really comment on this one, even though your guide isn't throwing colours into people faces like some other guides, it is really neat, and I can't find fault with it.

Does this guide bring something new to the table?:
You didn't mention any additional content in your guide, so unfortunately I can't give you the mark.

Overall: 7.5/10
Considering whether to upvote.

This guide seems really solid, and I can tell why this guide occupies top spot. However do take note of the points that I have mentioned, and do make your guide stand out!

Once again, like what I always say, this is just my opinion, and you don't have to follow it 100%.

Hope you like my review!
