League of Legends (LoL) Question: How should you build Gangplank?

Posted in Items | Tags: Gangplank 4,212

  • I want to be a Blitzball

    How should you build Gangplank?

    What would be the optimal build for Gangplank in most games? I've seen a lot build Trinity Force into Statikk Shiv. I've personally built Sunfire Aegis and Spirit Visage into Liandry's Torment. It worked well but what would you build?

    Gangplank has like 3 builds; Bruiser-Plank (Probably the most viable), Critplank and Mageplank.

    Example builds;

    BruiserPlank: Ninja Tabi, Trinity Force, Statikk Shiv, Randuin's Omen, Spirit Visage, Another defensive item

    CritPlank: Mercury's Treads, Trinity Force, Statikk Shiv, Infinity Edge, Last Whisper, Banshee's Veil

    MagePlank: Sorcerer's Shoes, Lich Bane, Athene's Unholy Grail, Rabadon's Deathcap, Zhonya's Hourglass, Void Staff

    Your build is ok, but I'd replace the sunfire for randuin's and drop the Liandries uness you're Mageplank (even then it's iffy)

    Or you can build FalseoPlank:

    Mercury's Treads/ Ionian Boots of Lucidity, Statikk Shiv, Infinity Edge, Iceborn Gauntlet, Youmuu's Ghostblade and the last item is situational.

    I don't think "critplank" is as unviable as it's said (specially coz I do it versus plats and I'm jungling). You just gotta realize you're a really precious source of damage and position accordingly. His pickup potential and dueling is incredible too)

    And I still don't understand how people underrate CDR on Gangplank so much.

    I personnaly would replace Statikk Shiv with Ravenous Hydra on TankPlank, i don't feel like Statikk Shiv brings anything useful when you don't have Infinity Edge. ^^

    You could just read the most popular Gangplank guides......

    This is what I use, and always works well for me if you play him well. Rush avarice blade, then buy sheen or phage and finish trinity force. Then rush IE, then statik shiv. At this point its situational, if you want more damage go with last whisper and hydra, or build situational defensive. Buy boots and upgrade them to ionian boots when you feel like it. Do not build mageplank not very viable. But with the core 3 items and and then building situational I'd say you'd have the best luck. Critplank is what I always go for however.
