Summoner Spells Back to Top

Exhaust is always important for a support. You will need exhaust to catch up on your enemies. 

Flash - Well it speaks for itself

Heal is also an option since it gives heal and movement speed... But only if your adc is stupid enough to pick ignite

Ignite is also an option, depending on the enemy. Only take ignite if you know your enemy has a lot of heal like Soraka.

New Runes Back to Top

Primary Runes

Guardian.png?width=32 - To protect your ADC and because it gives movement speed, which makes it easier for you to catch up on your opponents
Font%20of%20Life.png?width=32 - Your E slows enemy champions, which is ideal for your adc to heal or if you are engaging that little portion of healing might save his/her life.
Iron%20Skin.png?width=32 - Assuming that the enemy adc will poke you... Extra armor is a great thing
Second%20Wind.png?width=32 - Whether you pick Second Wind or Overgrowth does not matter that much... Overgrowth for late, Second Wind for early... However, the laning phase is rather important, and therefore I would go with Second Wind

Secondary Runes

Option 1  - Defensive
Triumph.png?width=32 - Triumph is OP... Even better in botlane than in a solo lane because if you kill the support or adc, you will be healed, which might be enough to save your life
Legend%20Tenacity.png?width=32 - You would want to be affected by CC, therefore this one is good.

Option 2 - Offensive
Scorch.png?width=32 - Burn damage = Burst damage
Nullifying%20Orb.png?width=32 - If the support is an ap damage dealer like 143.png63.png90.png142.png99.png, then you should go for this one

Your most important ability is Q, since your Q can spawn zombies, and therefore making Yorick stronger... Not only stronger, but also better sustain + less cooldown, which means you are able to use it more in fights.

- No doubts, Max Q

Whether you want to upgrade your W or E is up to yourself. If you are against an adc, that doesnt have any escape abilities, you could upgrade your W(wall) 3 times, which means it would need 3 autoattacks instead of 2 to destroy your wall. That means champs like... 51.png81.png18.png.. And you name the rest...
You should maximum upgrade your W 3 times, until level 17 and 18 where you end up maxing it... Because your E is definitely more important that W.



Conclusion: Always max Q, and then max E. However if the enemy champions dont have any escape abilities, you could upgrade your W 3 times, and then max E... But ALWAYS max Q! 


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Always start with this. Relic shield is good because it can heal you and your teammate. Early game you have to last hit with your Q, to gain a "grave", and when you have 3-4, you are ready to engage!
    First time you go back, you should at least afford this. You would want a Sheen as fast as possible
    Build this item as your 1st or 2nd item! Your first 2 items should be Sheen and Sightstone! (Only if it's an offensive lane with kills and ganks)
    Buy this early!! It is definitely worth it! Go back as quick as possible, unless you have 1050 and is able to buy a Sheen. - Recommended. This item reduces cooldown from 60 seconds to 40 seconds for every charge, which makes it easier for you to spawn ghouls

Core Items

    Build 1: Build priority: (Only build it to Targon's Brace at first) - Trinity - boots - Locket - Spirit Visage- Sterak's
    Build these boots if enemy has strong AP
    Build 2: Recommended build... ONLY buy Relic shield for early money, and then sell it later! Build goes as - Sheen - Sightstone - Trinity Force(upgrade from Sheen) - Boots - Locket - Steraks Gage - Spirit Visage Damage - Check :: Armor - Check :: Magic res - Check :: Health - Check :: Wards - Check
    Buy this item instead of Trinity Force! Cheaper and also good... But only buy it if enemy team has a lot of hard AD like a Yasuo mid, Riven Top and a Lee Sin jungle
    Only buy this if enemy team is hard AD (toplane/Riven, midlane/Yasuo and an adc)
    A must have item since you are support and need to protect your adc and teammates

Situational Items

    If +3 of enemy champions is AP this item is recommended if you want more damage and better protection against AP.
    When you are a really friendly support and wants to support as much as possible... Not recommended though
    When it is mid/late game and you want to split push... Not recommended though
    Really good if they have Yasuo, etc, and an adc with crit

Conclusion: Sheen is a MUST item on Yorick, since his Q is where you get your main damage. You choose whether you want to upgrade Sheen to Gauntlet or Trinity.


How I would build: 3097.png -> 3097.png3057.png -> 3097.png3057.png1001.png1029.png -> 3097.png3057.png3047.png3044.png -> 3097.png3078.png3047.png -> 3097.png3078.png3047.png3065.png ->  3097.png3078.png3047.png3065.png3190.png -> 3097.png3078.png3047.png3065.png3190.png3053.png.
You can build 3025.png and 3071.png instead of 3078.png. If that's the case, you should consider not to buy Locket or Sterak's Gage.


Sheen - Amazing early game if you are going for early kills!! You HAVE to build sheen anyway on Yorick, so you might aswell build it early.


Your only damage items should be Gauntlet/Trinity Force - Black cleaver and Steraks Gage are optional, however I recommend to build it since, you would want a bit more damage than just a Trinity Force.

PS: Dont upgrade your support item further, it is not worth it.

VS

Alistar

Medium

His heals are annoying, and his knockback might be dangerous since he can knock you towards their tower. Never let Alistar get the chance to knock you away from your own tower!


If he knocks you back, and you are +level 6, just use your ult and try to kill their adc. You are the tank with lots of damage anyway!

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Annie

Medium

One of the supports that has high burst damage... However not THAT tanky, so you could choose to focus Annie before she hits level 6!


When she hits level 6, you should consider to focus the adc...

In this matchup you have a Tibbers vs The Maiden!

You CAN focus Annie in this matchup, depending who the adc is

VS

Ashe

Easy
She doesn't have any escape methods which is perfect for you

Your ghouls can block her W (Volley of arrows)

Your W is perfect against Ashe! One of the easier matchups!

VS

Bard

Medium

A really annoying support because he has a lot of tricks he can do.


He is able to deal great damage, and he has a stun. 

BEWARE that he may ult your ring(W), if he is trapped inside it!

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy
Never funny to get grabbed by Blitzcrank, but just use your Q if grabbed by Blitzcrank and run away. It will give you a bit HP 


Remember hisrocketgrab.png can grab a Zombie! 

However, if blitzcrank grabs you and they initiate a fight, immediately use your ult, and focus the adc

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Brand

Hard

I have started playing Brand support, and I know how dangerous this is..


Brand has a 2 second stun and his ult deals A LOT, if there are no minions near you and your teammate, since it will keep bouncing on you...

A good tip is to stay behind your minions and try to avoid his W.

His ult is strong against you, since its gonna bounce of your ghost and you. However, Brand has no escapes, and he is squishy. Catch him inside your wall (W), and kill him easily

Focus the adc or Brand in this matchup

VS

Braum

Easy

He is not a support that deals tons of damage, so if he starts to harass you. Just remember he has a shield, so DONT TOWERDIVE if Braum is support.


Your zombies can also block his slows! 

Use your ult early if someone engages, in this way you will have maximum use of your ult

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

Long range... Big problem in this case, since you can only poke with your E...


Even if you use your yorickdecayed.png(W), she can just caitlynentrapment.png(E) and you have nothing on her...

Wait till you have your Maiden, and here you may have enough damage to outburst her

VS

Corki

Medium

Deals a lot of damage, and has a good escape oppurtunity


Your zombies are able to block his missiles from his ult, which makes it a fine matchup!

W useless on Corki as he has escape...

VS

Draven

Easy

He can't escape, which makes him very weak against Yorick. Therefore he is an easy opponent! Mid game, you "trap" him with a yorickdecayed.pngW, and then its an easy kill. 


His ult might be a bit dangerous, but it really doesnt deal tons of damage, unless he is good at grabbing his axes! It depends if the Draven is good or bad. 

When you choose to "trade"... Then go all in, because he might get more out of trades... If he gets fed it is all over... ONLY fight him if you have 3 or more ghouls to jump on him

Like with Vayne, this matchup will be hard in lategame

VS

Ezreal

Hard

A bit annoying to be against since he deals AP and AD. He also has great escape opportunities


One of the harder matchups, and a good Ezreal is going to have a good time against you... But again... Wait till level 6, and at this point, you may have a chance

VS

Galio

Medium

His ult is really annoying, and his Q deals quite a lot early game.


He doesn't have a stun which makes him a bit easier (except for his ult)

But NEVER use abilities against Galio, because with his galiobulwark.png, he is just gonna get healed, and if you use them on the adc, he will just use shield on the adc and get HP....

You wont be able to kill Galio, but he a tanky support anyway, so dont focus him. Beware of his ult!

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Graves

Hard

He has a lot of burst damage! Be careful!


(Not sure about this, but pretty sure his dash, can dash out of your Wyorickdecayed.png)

If their support is Leona, Annie, Morgana, Nami or Blitzcrank, you should consider to play defensive, and this may be a hard matchup instead of medium

Deals tons of damage, but your zombies might be able to block some of his damage, since he can only hit the enemies in front of him. So your zombies might be a small counter.


VS

Janna

Easy
Janna can easily harras you with very low damage, however she does not has any escape oppurtunities (only her ult) and she is really squishy.


I would say she is really squishy, and Yorick is a support with much damage... You know what that means... Get her with your W, and its an easy kill, however you would probably want to focus the adc, since Janna deals no damage anyway... She has a shield that she is able to give to the adc, however, with your damage, she wont be able to use the shield more than once (or twice)

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Jhin

Easy

Has no escape, and therefore one of the easier matchups. He has his ults which deals a lot, which is the only dangerous thing about him...


W Jhin, and if you get him, you kill him

VS

Jinx

Easy

Her traps are annoying, and her ult is also a bit dangerous


However, she has no escape oppurtunity, and that means with your W, you create a ring she doesnt escape... = 100% satisfaction...

VS

Kai'Sa

Medium

This matchup really depends on your adc and their support too


If you engage Pre 6 with your ghouls, you should win the trade but only if you hit with your yoricke.png and yorickw.png of course. Never engage if you don't hit with both (or at least with E)

Mid game and Lategame Kai'sa will have a lot of damage, however it will not be a problem for you IF YOU HAVE YOUR ULT yorickr.png. Without your Maiden you will be crushed.

I will argue that if you have your maiden in a 2v2 fight down in botlane early on, you would most likely win it.

VS

Kalista

Medium

Might be a bit annoying with her passive, since it might be hard to hit with your W.


And she does deal a lot of damage! Never focus the support in this situation since she is just gonna ult... 

She has great mobility which makes it annoying for you, since it will be harder to hit a Q and W. But if you hit a W however, its going to be an easy kill

VS

Karma

Hard
Her Q deals great damage, and is able to slow you. and her W is able to root you.

If she uses her W, and you aren't fast enough to run away, and in this case you should consider to use your yorickw.png to either engage, or to prevent Karma (or the adc) to chase you further.

She is able to run away since she can use her E which gives too much movement speed, and while she also has great poke. It may be a bit annoying.

Focus the adc or Karma in this matchup. Only fight if you have 3 or more ghouls out 


VS

Kayle

Medium

She has heal and slow, which might make it a bit difficult, and even her ult is pretty good... So be careful when towerdiving!


Again.. Kayle cant escape from your W, which is a good thing! If there is nothing else to do, than using your wall on Kayle because she is poking too much... Feel free to do it! Kayle can be an annoying support!

Focus the adc or Kayle in this matchup

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

AP is pretty annoying, and he can slow you with his E


so be careful when playing against this guy

He can't escape which makes him very weak! And every champ that can't escape is a plus for Yorick

But his Ult has long range, and he is really strong after his buff. Be careful he won't poke you too much! If you both are level +6... I recommend to go all in or nothing. Because if you escape with low HP, he is just going to snipe you down. His passive might also kill you easily... Take care!

CAUTION: He also deals magic damage with ult!


VS

Leona

Medium

CC is always annoying, and she is also very tanky.


The thing is... This matchup is not hard for you, but for your adc since the only way you can support your adc is by throwing ghouls at him/her. But you outdamage Leona, the problem is just you don't have CC. If you lose your lane, just stay under tower, if not then raise your ghouls and throw them when Leona is using her leonazenithblade.png or leonasolarflare.png to engage.

If your teammate gets stunned by Leona, just use the wall on their ADC and focus their adc... That way, you are zoning their adc, which makes your adc take less damage

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Lucian

Hard

You can block a few shots from his ult by having a few ghouls... But they die instantly anyways from his ult


After his nerfs, he should be medium however, I have this on hard because afterall.. He still has a dash, and his ult still has potential to deal much damage. This is one of the harder medium matchups, because any champ with a kind of dash, is hard for Yorick


VS

Lulu

Easy

She does have polymorph and such stuff. But you and your teammate both has great damage, so it doesnt matter who she polymorphs.


Her ult is of course annoying, but a little extra HP shouldnt hurt you too much. 

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Lux

Medium

She has much damage, and pretty hard CC. But no escapes!!!


+She can use shield and has a root - So no towerdiving

Play passive, however... If you really want to gank and their adc is something like 81.png51.png18.png and other champs that can escape... Just use your W on Lux and focus Lux

Focus the adc or Lux in this matchup

VS

Malphite

Medium

A strong ult, and still deals pretty much damage...


This will be a boring lane, and the only time there would be a kill, is probably when Malphite ults, or when there is a gank incoming.

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy
Is very dangerous since her ult has been buffed. If a Morgana cage hits you or your teammate, its over... Since you are building a bit tanky the ult shouldnt be THAT dangerous for you. 

But she can't escape, so the moment you are in melee range, it should be an easy kill, unless she is under their tower, or A Tresh appears.

An adc with no escapes is always in your favor, and MF doesnt have a lot of HP, so burst her down as quick as possible! 


VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

Really hard because he is so tanky...


His ult is also very dangerous... I have never tried when Yorick and Mordekaiser ult the same person... But it can't be good... Because then it might be 2v3

Anyways.. Yorick and Mordekaiser together is a strong combo!

Focus the adc or support in this matchup

VS

Morgana

Medium
If you are caught by her ult, its hard to escape it. You could consider to attack Morgana with your zombies while in her ult.

She is squishy, but high damage. When she gets Rod of Ages you should be very careful!

Focus the adc or Morgana in this matchup

VS

Nami

Medium

Has a lot of cc, and great healing! It's hard to harass Nami since she can heal. So be careful! Consider to play defensive! 


Watch out for her ult!

It is hard to make trades, without losing too much HP. So consider to engage when you get a gank, or if you manage to trap someone with your W!

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Nautilus

Easy

Even his auto attacks has a bit CC, and his ult is also very dangerous.


If he hits you with a Qnautilusanchordrag.png, you should use Q and then run away. 
Your zombies can block his hook!

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Nunu

Medium

- Just keep away from the bushes. 


- Nunu is not usually seen...

But if you see Nunu.. Be prepared for a lot of poke he does with his E... He may also eat your zombies... And.. NEVER trap a nunu with your W if NUNU is level 6 with full HP... He is just going to ult! Only do it if you know you can burst him down


Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Pyke

Easy

Yorick is stronger than Pyke, especially if you have your Ghouls out.


The thing that makes this a medium match up and not easy is because he can escape your cage with his pykee.png (E ability), and you have no ways of protecting your adc, except if he uses pykee.png to engage. If that happens just place a yorickw.png and summon your ghouls to kill him.

In this matchup I would focus the adc, however if Pyke engages and attacks your adc you can either protect your adc and focus Pyke, or jump on the other adc to zone him/her out of the fight.

Pyke is not that dangerous either, as his amount of cc pykeq.png and pykee.png is not that dangerous as other support champs. Take advantage if he uses his pykee.png to engage, because if you catch him with your yorickw.png, he can't escape unless he flashes or destroys the wall, which still takes at least 2 autoattacks.

VS

Quinn

Medium
She has some abilities that may be annoying such as quinnq.png, but remember... You are a bit tanky, so it is fine if you are focused.

Her ult is useless in  fight unless she flies towards you and engages. If this should happen, your use ultimate yorickr.png, and fight... Try to cage her with yorickw.png, and if you succeed it should be a kill, unless Quinn is fed. She may get out of your yorickw.png if she uses her quinne.png right.


VS

Rakan

Easy

When he dashes to a location rakanw.png, then you can easily just yorickw.png and then throw a yoricke.png after him. If your adc has been knocked up by rakanw.png you should assume the opponent's adc will target yours. Therefore you would focus your yoricke.png on the opponent adc instead of Rakan.


His ult might be annoying because of the cc, but your ult does much more damage and will hurt more than just a bit cc from Rakan

Rakan with rakane.png is a great dash for Rakan, and you should therefore NOT focus Rakan in this match up

VS

Sejuani

Hard

Luckily not seen that often anymore, but she is really strong, especially her ult. 


Don't push the lane when she is level 6, because if she ults you, and their jungler is ganking... You're dead

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Shaco

Medium
If he is a jungler, watch out! Dangerous little joker!

May scarcely be played as supp... Very annoying, but not that hard for a Yorick support since your damage outburstes his... The only problem with Shaco, is that he is going to be invisible, and will run away... Your yorickw.png will also be useless... So dont focus him in fights.

Focus the adc

VS

Sivir

Medium

Can be very annoying with her spell shield, but it has a long cooldown... and Your spells arent THAT important if she should spellshield it... Your damage relies on YOUR GHOULS, and therefore her spellshield is not that of a big deal, but her sivirw.png may kill your ghouls..


She has no escapes, therefore its not the hardest matchup, however Sivir is pretty strong at the moment... But again, she has nothing to escape your W.. She can block damage from your Q or your E, but the spellshield doesnt stop the ghouls! However her Ricochet ability is a counter against your ghouls and with her sivirq.png your ghouls will disappear quickly... With your ult, it will be no problem to get a kill though.

VS

Sona

Hard

Her damage and healing might be frustrating... She also has a lot of poke...


Strong ult and a lot of healing... 

Its one of those matchups where you should go all in if you want to fight. Because her poke is better than yours, and she can heal a lot, where you can't heal... So your pokes does nothing!

However no escape oppurtunities, and therefore a supp you may want to focus

Focus the adc or Sona in this matchup

VS

Soraka

Medium

Watch out for her silence!


Dont towerdive a soraka/her teammate as she has an ult that can be used anywhere. And it heals pretty much.

Anyways, you can use your W, to trap a Soraka, and you should only focus Soraka!

Focus the SUPPORT(Soraka) in this matchup

VS

Syndra

Medium

She can't escape which makes her very squishy


Not really high damage since she is support, but if she build full AP, it could be a bit more dangerous...

Again no escapes, however her combo does a lot of damage to either you or your adc... But again, very squishy, and no escapes!

Focus the adc or Syndra in this matchup

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

He is tanky, and his passive makes him even more tanky. Just be careful not to let him grab you into his mouth!


Also be aware of his ult, since he can appear behind you with a jungler. If this happens, use your ult... IMMEDIATELY, and be prepared to fight, unless you can fight

Focus the adc in this matchup


VS

Taric

Medium

He has healing, and his stun is very annoying


However, he deals no damage, so just full focus on their adc, and you probably win the fight!

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Thresh

Medium

For Yorick, Tresh doesnt deal a lot of damage. His grabs might be annoying though.


His lantern may also help his adc from getting away from your W, which is one of your most important abilities as support! Therefore a medium matchup.
Remember your zombies can also block his grabs.


Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Tristana

Hard
Her knockback(ult) might be annoying since she can use it on you, before she dies, and therefore get away from you

She has also great escape opportunities! 

Vayne and Tristana... DONT PICK YORICK!


You may want to focus the support in this matchup, unless its a tanky support like Braum...

VS

Twitch

Medium

He has invisibility and poison damage is always annoying.


His ult may also hurt a lot.

However he can't jump away from your ring(W), and he is VERY squishy... This is high damage - high reward

Focus the adc in this matchup

VS

Urgot

Easy

Who plays Urgot anyways?? He is tanky... But... Its Urgot.. Not sure if its Easy or Medium since nobody plays Urgot


I have played Urgot myself, and he is pretty tanky, and deals great damage. But it's nothing that a Yorick can't handle. And as I said before... As long as they have no escapes, they are easy for Yorick! (It also depends on the supp)

Focus the Urgot or the supp in this matchup

VS

Varus

Easy

His ult might tear you apart. But no escape oppurtunities = Easy kill for Yorick (Depending on the support for Varus)


Use your Ring(W), and he can't escape, and he will be easy to kill = profit

He may ult you so you can't attack him since you are rooted, but at least you get the ult, and not your adc! That is what a REAL support does!


VS

Vayne

Medium

High mobility is never funny. 


Her E will do knockback, so watch out for that..

Vayne will always be able to chase you unless you make a good wall(W)

The reason why I have set this match up to medium is because you don't have any stuns, which means she will destroy you late game. However, there is no doubt that you will win your lane against Vayne since Vayne is weak early and midgame.


Focus the adc in this matchup no matter what, unless the support is Lux or Zyra. Only fight Vayne if you have your ult, or if you are in early game (level 3-5) and have 3 ghouls out... If you manage to lock Vayne in your yorickw.png, her ult will nearly be useless, as you know she always will be in your cage (unless she flashes)

VS

Xayah

Hard

Her ult probably counters Yorick in many ways... If you throw your ghouls at her while she is inside yorickw.png, she will ult and escape.


Xayah has the opportunity to escape with ult xayahr.png, and root with her E xayahe.png, with a 12 second CDR in level 1.

It is not impossible to get a kill, but be cautious when to engage and when not to engage. You have to remember that if you ult and go for the kill, Xayah will be able to escape with her ult, unless you manage to capture her with your yorickw.png


VS

Zilean

Easy

After his bombs got nerfed, he isn't very dangerous anymore


He has his ult, and therefore you may want to focus Zilean... 


Focus the adc or Zilean in this matchup

VS

Zoe

Medium

Zoe deals a lot of damage, but as you are building tanky, the hard match up probably lies on your ADC.


When she is level 6 and uses zoer.png, you can just use yorickw.png, and you got her. Use your combo = 100% satisfaction

Avoid being hit by zoee.png and it should be fine. Your ghouls can take the shot for you!

VS

Zyra

Medium

She has a lot of cc, and it deals a lot of damage.


Yorick isnt strong against ranged champions.

HOWEVER! She is squishy! But since she can root you and then run away... But she has very low HP... In this case I would focus Zyra, or at least poke as much as possible... (But dont waste too much mana)
This is a matchup where you will probably go 1 for 1 since both champs have great kill potential

Remember, she cant escape your wall(W)!

Focus the adc or Zyra in this matchup. I would recommend to focus Zyra.

MUST READ BEFORE PLAYING YORICK SUPP Back to Top

You need at least yorickpassive.png 3 of these graves out before you fight, or else YOU ARE TOO WEAK TO FIGHT! NEVER NEVER NEVER FIGHT WITHOUT YOUR GHOULS EARLY GAME!


You gain a grave by last hitting a minion with your Q(yorickq.png), and therefore 3302.pngRelic Shield is A MUST! Last hit when you have charges of Relic shield. You will have 3 graves at level 2, but it is recommended to fight at level 3-6, as you need your Combo that will be explained...

Combo: When you choose to engage, to use your yorickq.png to Raise your zombies, then your yoricke.png to slow your opponents and to make your ghouls jump on your oppoent, and then quickly use your yorickw.png when you're in range. If you DO miss your yoricke.png and you have already raised your ghouls... Consider not to fight.
Many people are questioning me why I build 3057.png as one of the first items. The answer is because it gives 10% CDR, mana, and it gives you that small burst damage early game with your Q, which is still a lot of damage. Build a sheen early, and in level 7 you are able to 3v2 if you are ganked, but only if you use your ult and you know how to teamfight well (and focus).

If you follow these simple steps... You will succeed as Yorick support.


Good luck. If you have any questions, I will answer them.

Early Game/Laning Phase Back to Top

The start: Relic shield and 1-3 potions


Level 1: Last hit with your Q, with your relic shield, and this way you are able to summon ghouls earlier.

Lvl 2: I prefer W, but if the champ is someone with escape oppurtunities, you should pick E. W is also good to escape early ganks in case that would happen.

Lvl 3: Pick the 3rd ability you didnt pick before, and keep doing what you are doing

Lvl 4: From now on, just try to max your Q, and at this stage, you are also ready to fight in case something should happen

Lvl 5-6: Around this level you should have backed at least once. You should at least have (Targon's Brace) and (Sapphire Crystal). If you still have more money you have 2 choices. Buy a sheen

Lvl 7-10: You are pretty strong now since you probably have a sheen, a sightstone and maybe a support item. You are stronger than all supports, however you can still not 1v1 their toplaner at this point. But if you use your W well, you are able to kill their adc, if their adc is Jinx, MF or another adc without escapes.


Mid/Late Game Back to Top

lvl +11: Ward where a support usually wards, or where you find necessary. Ward Drake, Baron and bushes if its possible.


This is where the teamfight starts... Ult as early as possible!



As Yorick you should try to zone their adc OR use your W(your wall) to prevent dangerous champions like Evelynn, Rengar, Yasuo and so on to kill your adc or any of your fed players!

Who am I? Back to Top

I started playing LoL 2 years ago... August 2014... And ever since I started, I loved to play down botlane, I only played against bots until level 10, however, I played bottom lane most of the time. From level 11-30 I was good at one role, and that was support. Everytime I played with my friend "LET ME MIDDD" He said I had to go bot, with my friend "Zac and Chody", and that is why I also play support the day today. (Toplane and Botlane are my lanes, but I usually just fill)


I have played many champions as support such as Nautilus (Only season 4, before it was meta) and Galio. I bought Yorick because I saw my friend Bubizz used his ult (his old ult) in a team fight, and won us the game! After that, I knew he was the right support. People think you are crazy when you want to play Yorick support, but his W and his damage is really good.

I also play SMITE, another MOBA game where I play support. Even in DOTA 2 I usually play support.. So with much experince with support, I thought to myself... "Why not make a guide with Yorick?"

yorick supp 2.png

As it can be seen Yorick is my most prefered champion. I played Yorick since level 27, and until level 30. 


Yorick supppp5.png

Jinx, no escape = good thing for Yorick
Annie, no escape = good thing for Yorick
Orianna, no escape = good thing for Yorick
Cassio, no escape = good thing for Yorick

And Shyvana only has her ult to escape the W of Yorick. If you see a matchup against an adc with no escape, Yorick is the support you want!

Sell your sightstone as your LAST item, and buy a Steraks Gage!

Steraks Gage > Sightstone (but only do this when you are full build)

By the way, don't buy Black Cleaver or gauntlet... Buy Trinity Force






Why Yorick Support? Back to Top

With Yorick support, you are able to play against someone who is not used to be against a Yorick support... And is that good? Yes it is!


First of all, your are able to make ghouls/zombies... The cons... They will attack minions... The pros... Hit an enemy champ with your E, and all your minions is going to attack that champ = your zombies wont steal farm + you are also poking your opponent which is a good thing

Second: The wall that Yorick is able to create is a whole new way to support! This is like having Anivia (I will explain later why Anivia isnt the best support) as support, except that it's impossible to get out of the wall, unless you destroy it, or jump out of it. 

Third: You aren't squishy like Janna or Zyra and therefore you are also able to tank for your team... And this way, your opponents will probably focus you in the teamfights, but this is a good thing! Because... If your opponent focuses a support... You know you are doing it right! However... DONT go in and suicide... You still have a lot of abilities that are useful while you are alive! (Like your ult). Another good thing is... If you get kills... Fine, you deal more damage and you get more tanky...
If a supp like Janna, Lulu or Nami get the kills, you will probably be a little bit more tanky, or a little bit more "supporty" with support items, but it's still useless the supp gets the kills, while if Yorick gets the kills, its a bit horrible too, since he is a support afterall, however, its better than all other supps, because Yorick has the damage and the "tankyness"! So dont be afraid to get many kills.


Questions...

- "Just use Anivia, she has range, a wall too, and even stun!" - Unknown guy

Anivia has a wall and stun... But then you have to look at the facts... She uses mana very quick(especially as supp, unless you dont have plans using abilities unless you are in a fight), she is more squishy than Yorick... AND your opponents are most likely going to focus you.
IF YOU ARE YORICK ON THE OTHER HAND... You are more tanky, and therefore its fine if they focus you... If they DONT focus you, YOU are focusing their carries, and since Yorick is tanky and deals great damage, you will most likely win the trade. But it all depends on how you engag. Dont just rush in a fight with Yorick.

- "Can't I just use something like.. Lee Sin, or even Yasuo? They deal lots of damage too! And Yasuo has a windshield and Lee Sin also provides you a shield! This guide sucks" - Every Yasuo flamer

Right. Both deal lots of damage, however.. First of all.. Yasuo needs to hit a few autoattacks before he can use his tornado and ult.. Yasuo is just pure damage, and wont be able to support anything in mid/late game... However, he does have a lot of damage which is a good thing, but have you seen a non-fed Yasuo? Yes you have, its horrible, because when you try to engage as Yasuo, you will DIE. And if you build Yasuo tank... Please dont even mention Yasuo tank... Useless
Lee Sin? Sure.. He has a shield and his ult.. a bit cc, yay... Again as Yasuo, you have damage, and Lee is good early... But the problem again is.. Lee Sin is more early/mid game, where Yorick is both Early, Mid and lategame(only a bit lategame). Yorick has a wall that can actually support, where Lee Sin has damage and a little shield as support... I would give Lee Sin 3/10.
With Yorick you can just use your W(wall) to trap enemy adc, and that way, make it an easy kill for you and your team. THAT IS A REAL SUPPORT!

- "Your guide sucks, we dont need Yorick support" - Myself

This guide was mostly for the old Yorick, however since this Yorick has his W, I might as well make a "remake" of this guide, since Yorick is not all useless as support anyway!

Update: Yorick support has actually shown to be VERY useful! Just as good as the old Yorick! You don't have your old ult anymore, however with his W, and minions from his ult and Q... It creates a whole new level of support!
