Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png: The King of summoner spells is always a good option-taking any other of them makes no sense. Helps you secure kills, run away if it's gettin' too hot, juke, chase, avoid some skillshots... isn't that enough?

12.png: IMO still the best second spell on top lane. Taking this makes you be maximum safe and prevents from falling behind even after a few deaths in early game. Additionally it lets you come back to farm faster, so you're going to have your ulti upgrades earlier, what makes a giant impact in a mid game.

14.png: Also a reasonable summoner spell though doesn't provide as many pros as tp does. I never use it, but can be taken vs very easy matchups, when you know you can get fed in early.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

These are my favuorite masteries-they give a large load of ability dmg, what is the most important for 41.png. They are good only with a specific playstyle which I'll describe somewhere below.




FEROCITY

  • Sorcery gives a nice boost of damage on your raisemorale.png and cannonbarrage.png. IMO AS is not a good option cause in teamfight you're not going to stay on a frontline and farming is good enough with your q and base AS.
  • Double Edged Sword-another source of bonus dmg. Healing form Feast is not worth taking it, cause your removescurvy.png and 2031.png gives enough sustain, while Expose Weakness is rather supporting mastery.
  • Natural Talent scales great with all  41.png's skills. Lifesteal and spell vamp in early are not necessary, while in late removescurvy.png every few seconds provides enough sustain.
  • Bounty Hunter is not as safe as Oppressor, but if you are an experienced player, these 3 kills on unique champions won't be a difficulty. Some would say "on lane you will have a lack of dmg taking that mastery" but I'll say it one more time-pirate is a late game champion.


CUNNING

  • Savagery is a nice help in farming, especially with your parley.png on low lvls.
  • Assassin-I think that normal potions shouldn't be bought on GP, since it's some kind of waste of gold, so bicuits are a bad idea. You are not jungler too, so Assassin is the only sensible option.
  • Merciless provides a large boost of dmg vs low hp targets. And remember-in early your cannonbarrage.png is to secure low hp targets.
  • Dangerous Game-I know it looks strange, but I think that pirate is made to play passive lane, so that's why IMO you should focus on farming with your parley.png and poke opponent only when you have no creeps to farm.
  • Intelligence gives bonus cd so important for pirate. It just outclasses Precision.
  • Thunderlord's Decree is what makes you a killing machine. It's great on lane, but gives you biggest power spike for cannonbarrage.png, which kills almost instantly targets at about 250 hp.

Why I don't take Grasp of the Undying? Simply because IMO 41.png should be completly focused on late game scaling and some kills in early are not worth upgrades form serpents.

gangplankpassive.png Passive: Trial by Fire:

Makes 41.png a duel monster since it is kind of a small ignite and resets every 15 seconds or after a barrel detonation. You must remember though that it doesn't apply with your parley.png or raisemorale.png. Try to harras your opponent with that as often as you can, but not for price of creeps!

parley.png  Q: Parrrley:

ARR! Your farming tool and the best source of dmg (in combination with raisemorale.png). Take it first as it makes your farm much easier on 1st level. It has great passive giving you a few gold and Silver Serpents after killing your target with that. In my opinion that must be used, so I don't waste it on harrasing, but last hit every single minion using that. Additionaly it applies all on-hit effects and can crit. It can be used to detonate barrels, so if your jungler is coming, prepare both parley.png and raisemorale.png to deal a large load of damage and slow an opponent. In late use it on champions only if you have no barrel left. 

removescurvy.png W: Remove Scurvy:

Another OP spell in pirate's kit. It'll be your main source of sustain (remember that it scales with missing hp, so using it on lane when you are low is a better idea) but, what is more important, it's your own qss-removes any cc on you! In late avoid using it in fights to heal, because any cc, especially hard is rather lethal for you. Take it on 3rd level if you are afraid of early gank by any jungler with cc.

raisemorale.png E: Powder Keg:

A frightful source of damage, which can be detonated with your parley.png and aa dealing massive damage and ignoring opponent's armor. In early use it seldom, only to zone. After having 3057.png you may start farming with it in combination with parley.png since it generates serpents too. In late use it to almost one shot enemy squishes by placing a few of barrels in a row making wonderful combos. 

cannonbarrage.png R: Cannon Barrage:

Great supplement to your kit. In early use it to help other lanes get kills (it slows your targets) or to secure some kills (Thunderlord is going to deal a massive damage). In teamfights use it to initiate or to help your team run away from opponents. It's great range gives amazing AoE dmg, so does raisemorale.png. Additionally it can be upgraded for 500 serpents, which you get by killing enemies with your parley.png, what makes it even more powerful. 

I prefer taking first 3902.png, as it's massive damage makes securing kills even easier, then 3901.png, which rises the amount of clusters from your cannon, and as last 3903.png giving nice boost of speed for your teammates. It all depends to game though and sometimes you must rush 3903.png just to prevent opponents from getting fed.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Typical passive start i just love playing

Core Items

    get this as soon as you can-when you have 700 gold and crystal in eq, just push lane, go b and tp back not to loose creeps
    that is your main power spike. after sheen I'd rather build phage but zeal can be good either
    these two items give you massive ammount of damage and 30% cdreds which makes 45% in summary. i pref rushing essence reaver
    only these options are sensible
    amazing item, doesn't have to be build always though

Situational Items

    build vs hard ap dmg. build qss vs zed or just to have more than w to cancel cc
    wonderful items vs big ad dmg
    vs tanks
    if u are far ahead

Why would I start with these items?

That's very simple question. 1027.png gives you enough mana to farm almost every minion with parley.png until you have gold for 3057.png. It'd be nice if u had 1050 gold to buy boots too, but if u have no mana, don't risk and go back. I buy 2031.png because it is more gold efficient than 2003.png-for 150 gold you have 250 hp in 24 seconds. Normal potions cost ~83 gold for that ammount of hp, what makes it less efficient just after one going to base.

What about core?

Your absolute core item is 3078.png giving you all you need-crit chance, damage, cd reds, hp, mana and two wonderful passives, which are great with our kit. Since you have it you can start farming creeps with parley.png+raisemorale.png, because spellblade gives massive damage for your barrels. Then end your boots. Switch trinket to 3363.png as soon as you hit lvl 9.


Essence Reaver or Infinity Edge?

3508.png should be taken first in my opinion as it provides amazing dmg, 30% cdreds and nice mana sustain. Rush  3133.png, then 1038.png and 1018.png. After that build infinity. Then you have several ways to continue your building. I usually take 3053.png as it gives nice damage, and I'm not glassplank anymore. 

If you are far ahead and feel like a monster eating enemies on a barrel buy additional 3031.png3087.png or 3046.png

If you play vs some champions witch rely on "qssable" skills, like 103.png and herahriseduce.png or 238.png and his zedR.png buy 3140.png and upgrade it to 3139.png as a last item in late game.

If they have some AP burst champs like 7.png or 105.png very good option is 3156.png. Always good for tankiness is 3065.png too since it makes your removescurvy.png and hp regen stronger.


TL;DR:

3078.png3009.png3508.png3031.png3053.png3065.png and of course 3363.png

VS

Aatrox

Medium

He can jump out from your barrels with aatroxQ.png as well as jump in with it and kill you with a few hits in mid and lategame. In early don't harras him cause of his sustain. Just farm with parley.png and avoid his aatroxE.png.

VS

Akali

Hard

In early she has strong harras tool-akalimota.png which will make you go mad. At 6 she can avoid your barrels with akalishadowdance.png and easily burst you down. Play very safe and try to zone her with some nice raisemorale.png in lane phase.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Use  removescurvy.png when ou got slowed by rupture.png or silenced by feralscream.png. Harrasing is pointless as he has got great sustain with chogathpassive.png. Farm, zone, ask for some ganks.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Kinda easy matchup, though there are some things to beware of. First of all, never get hit by infectedcleavermissilecast.png, as it deals massive damage. If it lands on you use removescurvy.png not to let him come and use masochism.png. If he hits 6 first and goes all in with sadism.png use some barrels to slow him and run away.

VS

Fiora

Hard

Just hell. She can fiorariposte.png your damage from raisemorale.png, run away from it with fioraq.png, as well as deactivate barrel in about 1 second with her fioraflurry.png. Freeze lane and use parley.png to farm. You can ask for ganks but it's a bit pointless with her escape abilities.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Two pirates will go on a bottle of grog if they'll meat each other. Remember not to drink it though-then he will be drunk and your lane will be easy.

VS

Gnar

Medium

Though he is a ranged champion, you can win easily if you use removescurvy.png after getting slowed with gnarQ.png and try to avoid getting 3rd stack of gnarW.png. Ask for gank when he's out of gnarE.png and all he's gonna do in that game is "shiugii shiugii shiugii".

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Have you ever heard about free serpents? No? Come here I will show you some... h28gevolutionturret.png

VS

Irelia

Hard

Hard matchup as she can burst you down with ireliagatotsu.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.png and ireliahitenstyle.png aas. Try to farm and as you get 3078.png roam on other lanes.

VS

Jax

Hard

Put some barrels on ground as he will be scared of jumping on you when so many of them are around. He can use jaxcounterstrike.png to avoid parley.png as well as jump to kegs. Try to freeze and farm till 3078.png then go roam.

VS

Nasus

Easy

SOOOOO BORING. Or... maybe not? Playing vs him take typical gp masteries-0/12/18 as it will give you massive advantage and prevent him from getting stacks.

VS

Olaf

Medium

Don't duel.

When he uses olafaxethrowcast.png don't let him take another one. When he wants to use olafrecklessstrike.png on you punish him for that with some barrels. Remember that if his olafragnarok.png is up you won't slow him.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Not as hard matchup if played correctly. Zone him with barrels not to let him harras you with pantheon_throw.png. When he uses pantheon_leapbash.png use fast removescurvy.png and run on his back as he will use pantheon_heartseeker.png usually. Remember that his pantheonpassive.png blocks yourparley.png.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Harras her when she has no shield. Beware of ranged aas as they can destroy your barrels. Use removescurvy.png when she poppyheroiccharge.pngs u.
