Summoner Spells Back to Top

You're top, so 12.png is clearly better to have the farm at top and gank other lanes, plus you're one of the best top champions of the game in laning phase, so you don't need 14.png

After, 6.pngis better than 4.png because you have a champ who's always running without dash and need to chase other champs. So life Olaf, Mundo and others, you need 6.png to run fast.

The W is your last spell to max : 

-Worst scale of the 3
-Magic damages and AP ratios
-High mana cost


Before comparing Q and E, keep in mind you DON'T take 3070.png. So beware of mana early in !
Let's compare Q and E : 

Q : 
+Lower mana cost
+Best early scale damages (on hit then on ghoul's damages). 
+Mana cost doesn't rise with scaling. 
+The movement speed bonus (35% at max rank) is very good to chase AND escape. 
+This ghoul moves faster. 

-Melee


E : 
+Ranged ! 
+Easy to use. 
+Heals you BUT the ghouls heals you too and the ghouls damages rise only with your AD, not while maxing the spell. 

-Higher mana cost than Q. 
-Mana cost rises while maxing it. 


For me it's clear that you must max Q, you will have a very good trade potential, you'll move fast to escape and chase and the mana cost is lower and you haven't 3070.png to spam freely. 
-> Against tank/off-tank 122.png86.png54.png48.png : you can trade them easily while maxing Q. Just run away when your Q ghoul dies. 
-> Against bruisers 62.png92.png107.png24.png : You counter all of them with your passive and outrade... Then your Q maxed allows you to chase them. 
-> Against ranged/harass 17.png13.png85.png67.png : You'll move faster to go melle against them, plus it's your faster ghoul, and you can just send it by using your Q on creeps. 
-> On allied gank, it's way better to have your Q maxed for more damages and moving faster. 
-> On enemy gank, it's better to run away fast and if you're fed the best way to trade. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You're very manavore and a lane bully champion, so play he bully way.

Core Items

    Read the description below ! 40% CDR, mana, sheen, AD, hybrid defenses, black cleaver's anti-armor passive.
    When you're full stuff.

Situational Items

    If you will be a splitpusher all the time.
    You are facing only runner champs
    Lot of AD auto-attackers.
    2 or more enemies using crits.
    In late-game to have only one tenacity ^^ Or earlier if they don't have a lot of CC.
    Against AP.

Start item : 

2033.png You're manavore all the game long, so the flask will help you a lot to place some more spells. Don't hesitate to take mana pots, your E heals you and you are manavore ;)
3340.png Don't need to explain I think ^^


Core items : 

3812.png TONS OF DAMAGES & LIFESTEAL : RUSH IT !!! 

You have heavy AD scaling (healing + damages of you and ghouls), and because you don't take 3070.png, you can't spam, so you need to kill WITHOUT spamming early in. The damages are REALLY aweful ! Plus your ghouls will heal you with its passive !

3071.png Your ghouls' auto-attacks remove the enemy armor when you have it !

This is core on a lot of toplaner since its refont, and really worth it on a 3/4 physical damages champs like Yorick who will destroy enemy tanks' armor with his auto-attacks and ghouls. 
BUT don't take it as a first item because early CDR isn't worth on Yorick if you don't have mana with levels. Pure AD  and lifesteal with 3074.png will allow you to manage your mana because you don't spam and heals by auto-attacking !


For those two, the order depends of the enemy team. 

3025.png You need armor, mana, CDR and you spam. 3024.png+3057.png

I think the title is clear enough, it's a core item. 

3065.png You need magic resist and CDR and you heal yourself. 

Best magic resistance item currently. 


The last item varies a lot depending of the enemy team. 

Against a balanced team, these are the two best items : 
If you decide to go in teamfight : 3026.png
If you decide to splitpush : 3512.png

Against many auto-attackers : 3075.png
Against lots of runners : 3022.png
Against many crits champ (157.png Yes I'm watching you) : 3143.png
Against high AP dealers and your team needs more damages : 3156.png
Against very high AP dealers : 3102.png

Once full stuff, you can sell your 3111.png to buy 3047.png because those are better in late-game and you'll have tenacity by taking the 2138.png.

If you really want to win the lane, max E to poke him to death, but it's better to play passive by maxing Q and to wait a gank. 

VS

Nasus

+His early is weak so try to kill him fast, but it's hard if he plays safe Nasus style. 
+BUT you can zone him. Just beware of using your ghouls after he used his Q. 

-If you harass him with your ghouls he can stack on it. 
-His ult gives him AD by dealing damages. Damages on your ghouls and clone too.

+Only runner and you have a slow. 

VS

Trundle

Easy

-His passive heals him with your ghouls. 


+Early in you build AD, so his ult isn't that effective. 
+You outrade him : his Q steals your AD. Not your ghouls' AD. 
+You can poke him. 

Why Yorick ? Back to Top

Personaly, I am an hipster. I love to play non-popular champions or not at the right place. To proove it, my main is 78.png and I love 44.png top or jungle and 154.png top, mid or support. 

This is a video about my 83.png

Yes, 83.png > 122.png

I was watching a video from Scurb (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NPzFE17n8g) where he says that Riot is doing a great in balancing champions. It's true, but I always doubted 83.png, so I retried it the classic way, wasn't convinced at all, and then I start thinking : 
-Yorick is a lane bully champ. But, because he's manavore and a spammer, you need 3070.png to keep spamming like the nobrain champ he is. 
-Why do you take a late-game stacking item on a lane bully ? 
-In fact, he has a lot of AD ratios, 3 ghouls and 2 spells, and even his ult if he ults himself !
-If you have tons of AD, he will kill enemies with just some spells, and will not need to have a lot of mana. 
-His ghouls all deal physical damages, so they remove enemies' armor with the3071.png
-He's still a spammer so he'll have 40% CDR, but certainly 3025.png to have enough mana !


So I tried it... And I just destroyed almost all champions I faced and was still a threat in late-game. 
Full stuff, I am able to kill a full stuff Darius healed by an AP Sona alone (who was attacking me), losing only 1/4 of my health. 

Pros & Cons Back to Top

Pros : 

+BEST toplaner in laning phase. 
+Good sustain. 
+Good damages. 
+Good tankyness. 
+Very good pusher. 
+Good duelist. 
+Ult can win a teamfight (with a good team synchronisation). 
+Some magic damages. 
+Scales well with currently popular items. 

+-Runs fast but can only run. 

-Not very safe. 
-Little presence in teamfight. 
-Not that good at splitpushing. 
-Manavore. 
-His ghouls get hard countered by 1054.png and 3068.png

The reason 83.png is considered a weak champ : 
Not good in teamfight AND as a splitpusher. 
"Win lane, lose game". 

Tips Back to Top

DON'T WASTE YOUR W TO POKE !

Your W is here to slow the target and costs A LOT of mana ! It's your less damaging spell !
Use it ONLY when you need to slow the target to deal a lot of damages or even to kill the target. 
You play without 3070.png, so you are not the no brain spammer we know for several years, so don't waste your mana ! 


You can poke simply by summoning your ghouls to attack.

Your ghouls will attack the target you selected by left-clicking (after killing the creep you attacked to summon your ghoul). So you can send your Q ghoul (the strongest) to harass your enemy. 


Use your ult on the hard dealer of your team (AD if possible) instead of yourself. 

11.png 157.png 23.png and the ADC are the best target for your ult. 
If your carry is more an APC, it's also good to resurrect him for 10 seconds full mana so he can spam and kill every enemy.
