Greeting Summoners!

We wanted to give a sneak-peak into Yorick’s gameplay in a quick mini-update.

Yorick is our first champion that utilizes the creation and use of summoned minions. All of Yorick’s spells have varying immediate effects, but each leaves behind a different minion of the appropriate type. For example, Omen of Pestilence creates an AOE explosion at the target location that does damage and slows, and leaves behind a Decaying Ghoul. This ghoul will then slow targets adjacent to it during its lifespan. All Ghouls have a constantly draining life bar that limits their lifespan to a short duration, and enemies attacking them will shorten it even more.

Yorick isn’t some frail, weak Necromancer that just commands minions though – he’s a burly fighter who can dish out punishment on his own. This was done primarily to make his play more consistent (as frail summoners typically have really binary PvP gameplay on if their minions are up or not). Yorick can get into a fight and go toe-to-toe with enemies while commanding an ever-changing army of undead Ghouls.

Omen of Death is his trademark ultimate that brings players back from the dead to exact Vengeance. Yorick can use this Omen on an ally, which creates a revenant of that champion. If that champion is killed while the revenant exists, then the target gains temporary undeath, coming back from the dead at full life which drains on its own rapidly. After the risen ally runs out of health again, they collapse once more.

We really hope you enjoy our new master of undeath in the upcoming patch!


Thoughts?

His ult seems like a knock off version of Zilean ult/Morde ult for allies...

Wouldn't you rather get Zilean ulted as a carry and have a whole 'nother life with no death vs being up but losing HP over time and still getting a death nonetheless... O_O

Depends on if its delayed or instant.
If its instant, allright I can live with it.
If its delayed, fail ult is fail.

It works like Zilean's thing I believe, where you have a little thing above/around you that lasts for some seconds and if you die during it you turn into a ghost and last x amount of seconds, but can get killed during it like Morde's ult.

Right, I meant the comming back thing.
If you die with Zil's ult on you, you just lay there for what 2 seconds?
If its delayed like that...No thank you.

We're still getting a re-hash of another ult. Just this time, it's 2 ults mashed together!

yeah, so you create a morde ghost of an ally, and if said ally dies while the ghost is alive then they get resurrected for a short time.

but still its a lot better than a snare version of sonas ult.

Not really, I think that would have actually been a better ult, especially with an Amumu and Sona on your team; you can 2 second AoE stunlock them thrice.

The ultimate seems very awesome.
It's like Zilean's ultimate, but less overpowered in that it even if you tried to kite, you'd be outnumbered.

Ally Necro!!

This also means Zilean isn't the only champion who can res an enemy. Even if it's a temporary thing.

I wonder how this will affect the death timer.
