    Can my Gangplank as ADC theory hold up? HELP

    ADC need to be great farmers and build into godly damage. Isn't that what GP is? I hate playing bot lane, mainly don't like any of the champs. I noticed LoL list Gangplank as a carry and knowing he is AD, I imagined him as an ADC. Using him as more of a caster than auto attacker, I use his Q and farm/poke. Lot of the support champs and junglers can't lock me down or gank because of his W and E. Great escape and MS boost respectively.

    Item wise, Sheen is amazing on him because it procs on his Q. I usually go Sheen, Avarice Blade, IE, Warmogs, LW, and finish with Atma's. Boots I go for CDR to speed up his casting.

    Aside from runes and masteries right now, do you think GP could ever work as an ADC?
    Who would he lane well against? Who would he have trouble with?

    Thanks for your help in my crazy experimentations

    Q is by far not enough damage. The reason every game there is an ADC on the botlane is because they can keep dealing loads of damage with each second. Gangplank has a delay with his great Q, and after that he needs to get in close. He can be kited, he can be out of position and be instantly killed, either way, ADC GP not recommended.

    You can still do it for normals though, if you wish :P

    Seems to be a pretty well established opinion already... Was thinking his Q would be enough damage. Will continue tweaking but thanks for link

    I've played ganplank with soraka support as a joke, and it was very poor. If you want to try a different bot lane, try nasus with armor quints and soraka support and take an adc top or mid. Don't ever fight them, just get a million siphoning strike.

    If you want something different, try GP mid, chalice rush into frozen fist. It's quite potent.
