Hi,

I was wondering what is the play difference between mordekaiser and yorick given that they both have the same stats. Also is it true that Yorick's dmg sucks at late game?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

Had little time to explain last night, so I'll rewrite things

Both champions are good solo picks, Yorick has a great sustain with E (the ghoul that heals) and Mordekaiser has the passive
Yorick's damage doesnt suck late game, the problem is that he has to melee attack to do more damage because of his passive, and Mordekaiser can cast skills from a distance, and they hurt

Both are tanky champions (dont listen to people saying that Mordekaiser is an AP carry), but Mordekaiser has a better damage and Yorick has a better defense

Yorick can do enough damage to kill squishy people.
He also has a lot of utility with all of his spell : an ult used on a full build AD carry is de-vas-ta-ting (by this way he brings ton of damage), his Q gives him tons of mvt speed, W aoe-slows the enemy.

Morde can also bring a AD carry with a kill on an ulted enemy ad carry (harder to use)

Gauging Yorick's damage lategame is difficult - do you include his ultimate? Do you base his ultimate damage off a replica of himself, or your super fed AD carry?

That being said, Yorick's real strength lies in his sustain anyway - if you are building an all-out dps build you are sort of missing the point. You are a disruptor first and foremost, who just happens to have an ultimate that can make teamfights 6v5's if you use it correctly.

I don't know much about Mordekaiser really, but using his ult to it's full potential is more difficult than Yorick's (you need to finish them off to get the ghost, as mentioned by Somalie).

If I had to pick one to take into a game with me I would pick Yorick, but it's personal preference for his incredibly sweet taunt.

Don't listen to people saying Mordekaiser is a tank champion, he isn't, not even a lil bit.

He is an AP offtank much like Swain. Yorick has seen a fallout from competitive play because he was nerfed a bit, which hurt his lane matchups, while morde was nerfed up the *** (although people have been playing him more strangely).

Yorick might be played support though now, idk. They are both pretty good imo, though Morde is better imo.

Ding ding ding.
He does however have to be built tankier because he is melee as are all his main skills.
If you get a strong ghost though, good god people die so fast.

Either double AD carries or +10 sec dps for your mate.
Well used (and if enemies are not very clever), you have double ad carries for 1-9 sec and then a revived AD friend.

yepp, as a 19/2 twitch I had the (bad) luck to give the enemy morde a pentakill on my own team...
OT: I'm not playing top too much anymore, but it used to be the way that Yorick is more defensive while laning (staying back and useing the ghoul to regen) while Morde needs to push to get his shield up (automatically making him more offensive). When coming to teamfights both are tanky(ish), and have to get quite close to do things. The ults are similar, however morde needs his target to be killed, yorick doesn't.
I'm back!

Recently played vs Yorick in top lane as Xin (now there's something you won't see every day) and his harass is super kriffing annoying. Since he isn't melee, he can generally harass you down pretty low pretty fast if you don't have tons of heals, and his ghoul reduction allows him to win trades relatively well.

Mind you I was still beating him, it just wasn't rape -_-
