ok Im buying a new champ, I would like some help picking, Im trying to deside between Yorik, Nocturn and Xerath.

here are my stats:
most used lane champs = Wukong, Twitch, Corki, Shyvana, Sona, and Karma
most used junglers = AListar, Evelynn (no joke or troll) Warwick, SHaco, Shyvana (can also wukong jungle)
fave/best champs = wukong, twitch shyvana, alistar, and Sona

my rune page = armor pen marks, armor Seals. Health glyphs, and armor pen quints
working on an AP runepage a.t.m. cuz I havent found many AP champs I realy like

I play jungle about as much as I lane

oh and champs I cant figure out and/or simply sucks as = Xin ZHao, Twisted Fate, Sivir, Urgot, and SOraka(post nerf... loved her before she lost her mana skill)

I mostly consider these champs because
*yorik* I played vs him only 3 times and he wasalways unstopable, I played him on a free week and loved it
*nocturn* hes suposeto be OP jungle and a good laner, my friends gave me some tips on him
*xerath* played on free week, liked itm though friends sugjest against him

oh and if this is in the wrong spot sorry, plz move to right ^^"

I would highly suggest Yorick, as you seem to like both laning and Jungling, he can do both well and is pretty durable.

I'm gonna say Nocturne. His jungling is really fast and really effective, he is a powerful champion, and he's fun to play! I think that you will enjoy him once you get used to him.

Xerath: If you're looking for a ranged champion/AP caster, (after all, he is WAY different than Nocturne or Yorick then get Xerath. he is also pretty enjoyable to play. His ultimate is awesome.

Yorick: Yorick is a powerful champion, but he is a bit hard to learn, and I got bored of him quickly (might be different for you, just saying).
If my feedback helped, then feel free to +Rep me and check out my guides!

I would say Nocturne because he has high amounts of damage and can join team fights from far away with Paranoia and because he is an excellent jungler and laner.
thanks to Lord Adrian and myself for the signatures!

i recently bought yorick and have had noc and xerath for a while. Noc i barely play i don't jungle very often but when i do i use lee sin(i think he's a better jungler my opinion) Noc is an amazing jungler since you do jungle a ton. Xerath is pretty awesome but he doesnt do well against other mid laners such as morg, karth, or kennen. Xerath also takes time to learn how to use his skills effectively. Yorick is an extremely viable champ he can tank, has amazing damage, great sustain(his E heals him when it hits enemies) and is an amazing top laner(one of the best up there with rumble lol). Nocturne or Yorick are def better picks personally. GG and glhf xD

OK, here is what you need to know about all these champs.
Nocturne: This is the champ that best fits the page you already have. His lane is OK at best, but his jungle is so amazing, you will never really see lane noc in mid to high ELO. Very fast clear times, he dont give NO ***** about wards in the river because of his crazy ult. Has a built in spell shield which is absolutely invaluable, and the same spell works as a passive attack speed boost. Fear and a good chase mechanic. The issue is that most people build him as a glass cannon, which is no bueno. Thats easily fixed by adjusting your build a little. Great jungler (probably top 5 ATM), good fit for your runepage, just all around good choice.
Example Build:
Berserker's Greaves
Frozen Mallet
Trinity Force
Atma's Impaler
Maw of Malmortius
Frozen Heart
altho you would start off with Wriggle's Lantern for the armor, farm assist, and free wards. This is just an example build to make tank noc, really your build is entirely situational. Altho i will say that the berserkers greaves, frozen mallet, and tri force are pretty core.
Yorick: As one of my mentees once said upon playing against him for the first time, "he is rather obnoxious". Actually, he is VERY obnoxious. You do not "win" top lane against a Yorick, you survive it. Crazy sustain, great duelist, an ult that can change the tide of a battle by either giving you a shaco-style clone to fight with, or bring your AD back from the dead for a brief time. Great escapes through Omen of War, high aoe damage with Omen of Pestilence, and insane sustain from Omen of Famine. His build is very intuitive if you know items, example:
Sorcerer's Shoes
Manamune
Trinity Force
Guinsoo's Rageblade
Rod of Ages
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Mix of ad and ap, LOTS of health, and the perma slow from rylais. Very useful build. The three items that i would say are CORE are the sorc shoes, manamune, and tri force.
Xerath is a very underrated AP champ. His range is INSANE when he goes into locus of power and is a FANTASTIC poker. ascended form is useful after lane phase, but not during, since he will be fighting another AP in current meta. He does have a stun, but its not entirely reliable, being a chain stun. Not that thats a total turnoff, Kennen has to hit three different things to stun an enemy, xerath only needs land two spells. His build is fairly easy, pretty much stack AP like a **********er, and make sure you get a little mres too.
Sorcerer's Shoes
Athene's Unholy Grail
Rod of Ages
Abyssal Mask
Morello's Evil Tome
Rabadon's Deathcap
With the health of ROA, the armor from ascended form, and mres from Abyssal Mask and Morello's Evil Tome, PLUS max CDR if you have the 4% from mastery page, you will actually be fairly tanky, especially for an AP carry. Don't let your friends discourage you, they probably simply don't see him enough, and the ones they do see just suck. He does have a bit of a skillcap, but if you can break it, its a scary scary thing.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
Hope this helped XD
