Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png : I think it is more than obvious that Yorick needs flash. He has no gap closers and not very good mobility (he will only increase mobility if you use your E right). So yes, you want to get Flash for Yorick.

12.png: I am not that expert in LOL, but I have played this game for 6 years already, and specially in this meta teleport is a BASIC NEED for a top laner. You cannot even imagine how many games I have won thanks to teleport. Is good early game, mid game, late game, whilst ignite is only useful early (sometimes it could help mid or late game if they got champs like Swain50.png , Volibear 106.png  or Dr. Mundo 36.png. But I can ensure you that ignite 14.png is not that good early. If they get fb in a close fight, you use your teleport back to lane instantly, pressure, and probably level up quicker, farm up better, and will kick his ass next round. Mid game, you can use it to teleport bot and help them, rotate through the lanes, get some objectives and probably some kills. In late game, it is great for split pushing and joining a teamfight whenever you want. I think it is obvious as well, get teleport, ALWAYS. (and use it wisely)

14.png: As I just explained before, I would never use ignite. But if you feel over confident and think you can win your lane better with ignite, go for it. But I strongly NOT recommend it.

Masteries Back to Top

Masteries are something to choose that really depends on your play-style. Personally, I have already tried different masteries combinations and this one is the one that worked better. Yorick needs sustain in lane, and he needs to be tanky as well since he is a melee and gonna be fighting close to your enemy in every teamfight. And if you are squishy in a teamfight, you are not going to be of much help. As I said before, I don't feel he is so mana hungry as the last yorick; thats why I go 12/0/18, with masteries focusing on hp, regeneration and healing and some damage. It has been working really well for me, you are tanky and at the same time you have enough damage to burst your opponent. I have had numerous situations where I have lived with 5% - 10% hp thanks to these masteries, that let you regenerate your life insanely fast, specially if you combine them with items like Warmogs 3083.png or Spirit Visage 3065.png , which I try to get in most games.

I have tried different combinations upgrading the abilities, but this is by far the one that has worked out better for me. I have seen some guides where they upgrade E first, but it is not worth it, I can ensure you that. It can be fun to try, but just in lane, when you are 1 vs 1 and want to play a poking game. But that is not what yorick is meant to do. Firstly, even if you are really good at skillshots it is more probable that you will fail your E in some of the fights, but is impossible that you miss your Q. And together with the masteries I play with, the regeneration hp with the q is pretty insane + you get a very nice cooldown when its maxed, so you can spam it in fights. As for the R, it is pretty obvious that it should be upgraded every time you can, at levels 6, 11 and 16.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    After trying different starting items, I found that this one matches yorick's needs perfectly. It provides you with hp and mana regen early game, and some dmg to poke your enemy and even try to go for fb.

Core Items

    Bami's cinder and sheen is what I main for early game. Bami's + corrupting potion works really well and gives you some tankiness, and if you add sheen, you got an insane balanced tankiness+dmg combo
    This is what you want to get for mid game. If your lane opponent is ad, go for iceborn first, if he is ap then go for spirt visage and then iceborn. I usually grab my boots after finishing one of the 2 items. Then I finish my sunfire, and then its probably already gg :)

Situational Items

    With the last items you are already a beast. You don't need more damage items for early and mid game. Yorick's abilities already provide him with an immense amount of damage. But if the game is going long, then I usually get these two. Warmog first and Titanic Hydra Second. With the item set complete, you are basically unstoppable.
    Depending on the enemy team you can try this items as well. Get banshees if they have very annoying ap carries like leblanc, or lux, etc. Guardian angel if you feel you are dying to fast because you go rambo in teamfights.
    You can try this item up, but personally I think it doesnt fit yoricks needs. Yorick needs to be tanky and I dont feel he needs any AS. I dont recommend it but you can try it up is if you feel more comfortable.
    THIS IS WHAT YOUR FINAL BUILD SHOULD LOOK LIKE
    THIS COULD BE ANOTHER INTERESTING LATE GAME OPTION
