So how does this work? Where does he go? What does he do? What does he build?

Can someone explain to me either in detail or in overview, how to play Bankplank, where to play him and when to play him?

Top/Mid/Support, usually top but he can hold on well versus some mids (Kassadin, Akali, Karthus (but karth also gets farmed unless he dumb and eats many-a-parley, etc).

You get sustain, gp10, and build according to how the game goes. Usually Warmog's Armor (league of warmogs), and stuff. I personally run Warmogs, Gauntlet, Shyv, armor pen, stuff (on-parrrrrley GP). After being full build bloody early I might sell items according to necessity.

Since Q counts as a melee attack and procs on-hits, do you think it'd be worth getting Ravenous Hydra? And since The Black Cleaver procs on physical damage, would you think it was worth combining The Black Cleaver and Ravenous Hydra?

And is it worth trying to build Bankplank into Critplank?

Thats iSketch! :O

One of the best browser games ever! :D
Type in on google and you definately find it.

Back to topic:
Ravenous Hydra can help a lot with your Q indeed. If you kill multiple minions with your Q, they all give bonus gold. I would definately get it. Get some CDR for your global farming machine (your ultimate) and for your Q :D
Change is gooooood

Um... I was wondering about whether Ravenous Hydra would be good for team-fights, as opposed to farming. If I was considering it for farming, I'd have to rush it first, since it's 3500g, or at least rush Tiamat. If I've managed to get the money to buy a Ravenous Hydra, I'm not worried about farming.

It's just that in trying a Bankplank build, I've run into the problem that he doesn't seem to do as much damage later into the game. Unless I should go more tanky?

Unless gangplank get 2 levels on her before level 6, he's pretty done for. She can just do delayed burst onto him, stealth and back off, if he doesn't back off he's dead. He doesn't stand a chance.
