Yorick Support General Playstyle:
Yorick Support during the Laning Phase:
Focus on poking the enemy with your ghouls. Try to build up at least 3 graves before summoning them for maximum effect. Use your W to trap enemies, making it easier for your ADC to land their abilities or to escape from ganks.
Yorick Support in the Mid Game:
Roam with your ADC or jungler to secure objectives and provide vision. Use your ghouls and the Maiden to push lanes and apply pressure.
Yorick Support in the Late Game:
In team fights, use your W to trap key enemy champions and your ghouls to deal damage. Protect your ADC and peel for them using your abilities.
Yorick Support during Team Fights:
- Use your W to trap high-priority targets or peel for your carries.
- Summon the Maiden and ghouls to deal consistent damage in the fight.
- Use your Q to deal damage and heal, and your E to slow and mark enemies.
Yorick Support around Objectives:
Dragon/Baron: Use your ghouls and the Maiden to tank or deal additional damage. Your W can be used to trap enemies trying to steal the objective.
Yorick Support Matchups:
Ashe - A big problem due to her slow. If she targets you, you're in big trouble.
Zeri - Yorick's slow-moving poke meshes well with Zeri's quick engages, making a lethal combo.
Additional Advice on how to play Yorick Support :
- Don't steal minions from your ADC. Wait for your support item stacks to generate graves.
- Learn the damage output of your Q to avoid unintentionally taking kills from your ADC.
If you've made it this far without burying your hopes, you're ready to lay the competition to rest. Remember, with the Yorick Support Guide, every game ends with the enemy's 'Last Rites'. Happy digging!"
