“Pre lvl 6, Yorick loses. And its almost because he's completely alone. "OH MAIDEN!" Then they both give you the "Now what" stare the whole game. Don't you wish you had personal in-game servants too?”
“If you get ahead you can stomp him, dodge his Q, if you get hit 2 or 3 times consecutive you gonna need to recall ”
“Darius wins early. Do not fight in the cage. And play around the E. ”
“I haven't played this match up yet so I will need to come back to this, but it seems like it would be incredibly difficult if K'Sante can't E out of his cage.
Keep your movement unpredictable as most Yoricks like to fire off E a lot in order to get poke down. If you are about to get caged use your E to avoid it if you can.
Yorick can be solo killed if you R him in a way that you carry him far away from his Maiden.
The biggest issue I can see with Yorick will be he can overwhelm you under your own Turret if you don't have good waveclear.”
“Grasp Build; Second Wind + D Shield.
Sidestep or Parry his E at all costs.
Grasp trade him and once he has no E you can go in for extended trade.
You counter his W by just holding on to Q to go through.
After 6 it gets hard since he will have his Maiden. You can kill him with his Maiden when played correctly, but safe plan is to kill the Maiden first.
Bring TP to counter his splitpush and grad antiheal if you don't get a lead on him.”
“Never q on Yorick first, cause he can cage you and kite you, if you start trades with e you can't lose. (lethal tempo)”
“Tank base:GHOOOULS,Your E is bugged and oneshots all of his ghouls and go through cage”
“If you know the little dance to avoid his slow, he can't really do much against you early game. You take chunks of his hp with your Q. And depending of how close he is to you in case he walls you, you can still bite and latch to slide out of it. Or use your ult! Just respect his zombie raise though, kill those things when you can or wait for him to whiff his slow.”
“Dodge his E and he will never have the damage to kill you.
You can run him down as long as you don't get hit by his E.
His cage is a little annoying but you should be fine.
RESPECT HIS R.
The maiden deals a fuckton of damage and he will crush you if you try to fight him with her around.
The maiden has a huge Cooldown, try to bait her under your tower to kill it. Sacrifice your HP if necessary, back and comeback to kill yorick.
Be careful of his splitpushing power.”
“Skill matchup. Yorick is scary when he has 3 or 4 graves, you will have to dodge his E otherwise he will do alot of damage. Remember when you engage that he can wall you in and then throw his E on you and take out his R for 4 ghouls that jumps on you. You can auto attack wall twice to get it down faster (if he levels W it may need more auto attacks, you see on bottom of wall how many is needed).
He is very annoying with R up since he pushes very fast and takes Rift/Jungle camps very easy. Try to kill his Maiden first, without her he is very weak and it has a very long cooldown.”
