Is yorick any good?

#1darkwing1232Posted 4/4/2013 3:55:30 AM
I keep hearing that he's an awesome top but I NEVER see anyone play him. Do only high elo players tend to use him or what? Is he any good?

He's a good counterpick.

The problem is that he's not very useful in teamfights and his ulti depends on how much fed your adc is.

which champs does he counter?
#4aHappySackaPosted 4/4/2013 4:02:18 AM
Awesome in lane, but overall he is team reliant to do anything, but at least S3 has been kinder to him so his late-game isn't as bad as it use to be.

He counters all the melee bruisers who don't have sustain & a gap closer.

Never take him against Nasus though, Nasus can kill his ghouls to farm his Q.

Is he a better counterpick than Rumble, I thought he dominated melees.

A good Yorick will have a easy time against a ok Rumble.

If they are the same skill level however, Rumble will still win.


To be honest, no one really has a chance of beating Rumble without jungle help, so yes Rumble is better for countering everything in existence and being generally more useful.

I'm sure he'll get nerfed though, judging by the amount of pros still playing him.

Not true. Build full damage Yorick, ult yourself and hang back while your double wrecks face and slaps hoes.
