Thinking of picking up Yorick... how's his late game?

#1dovahkiinPosted 3/24/2013 2:00:38 AM
From what I've heard, he's nearly unbeatable top lane. Is his late game good though? Cause I just bought Heimerdinger, and while I NEVER lose lane, I always fall off late game and die very quickly while not being able to put out a lot of damage

I haven't had a problem with him falling off at all. His ult is also always really nice to have.

The thing is Yorick's late game is depends on your adc. If he's fed like crazy you'll create a very powerful 6th party member, otherwise, we'll he won't be very useful.

Not as bad as pre-S2 due to muramana, but still reliant on his teamates.

How do you usually build him too, like what are his essential items? I usually top with Nasus and build

Philo
Thornmail
Warmogs
Iceborn
Spirit Visage
Runic

And then I sell my Philo for whatever I need, usually a Randuins, another Warmogs, or a Frozen Mallet. Would I build Yorick similar to that?

You always rush a tear, start with a faerie charm and pots + a ward. When it's filled up you can upgrade it, you can also do a manamune early but I wouldn't suggest it unless you need a little extra damage.

I think season 2 told us it doesn't matter if your AD or AP is fed. There were a lot of AP carries being ulted and winning games.

Happyscrub's league of legends rank is higher than 95% gamefaqs posters. This is why gamefaqs jealous of him. That's why they troll him. So sad, So bad, so mad.

-tear -> muramana (please, don't forget about it's active in fights)
-boots of choice, whatever you feel is needed
-optional-chalice for dat harassing in lane, and maybe crucible if required or sell later or even grail
-warden's mail
-spirit visage/warmogs
-randuin's omen
-spirit visage/warmogs
-guardian angel if it comes to it as the final item or you'll have this spot filled out with the chalice item or throw on more tankiness with some item or get some more damage or something your team needs

Iceborn is a nice shoe-in if you don't care about the chalice but I would never go Iceborn over spirit visage/randuin/warmog/muramana. I consider these four items to be core on Yorick. Fifth is the boots. And sixth is whatever else you may be needing. If you think it's going to be iceborn then by all means, get that started up and get your iceborn. Same with Frozen Heart. I would like the Frozen Heart as a sixth item but maybe sometimes you need to replace Randuin's with FH. Depends.

Relies on a fed AA-reliant carry.

If you get one, just faceroll. Nothing pleases me more than having a fed Vayne on my team.
