Tips Against Yorick in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “Yorick is actually a pretty hard matchup for urgot, Remember that your W kills his ghouls super quickly, whenever he walls you in you want to auto attack it and try to kill it ASAP, also try to kill his maiden if he is careless with how he positions it, if he has his maiden out this matchup is hard, but the cooldown is very long on it so while it's down you should try to punish him, yorick also has an insanely weak early game so do not let him farm at all early. Both champs scale very well and you'll probably have to answer his splitpush a lot in the game so build for that. he also does a lot of mixxed damage so death's dance is a great option, executioners calling is a great but as well if he is running conqueror rune.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - DIFFICULT MATCHUP. DON’T PUSH LANE BRAINLESSLY. FREEZE IT AT EVERY POINT IF POSSIBLE. DON’T DIE AT LEVEL 3 WHEN HE HAS 4 GHOULS. DON’T GET STUCK IN THE CAGE. IF YOU DO, AUTO+W IT. YOU CAN ALSO TRY FLASHING OUT OF IT. TRY TO FIGHT HIM WHEN HE HAS NO GHOULS. DON’T GET HIT BY HIS SPELLS WHEN HE HAS GHOULS/GRAVES. TRY TO BAIT MAIDEN INTO YOUR TOWER TO KILL HER. SHE WINS EVERY FIGHT FOR YORICK UNLESS YOU HEAVILY OUTPLAY HIM. HE DOES BOTH AP AND AD DAMAGE SO HE’S DIFFICULT TO ITEMISE AGAINST. STEELCAPS RUSH GOOD. Yorick is a VERY annoying lane to deal with. As an immobile champion, if Yorick has ghouls and he catches you in his cage, you need to flash in order to avoid dying or aa w the cage quickly. His cage is buggy as hell which stops you from outplaying him sometimes. Auto+W killing the cage actually does not refund your W cooldown sometimes. And it means you have to waste a big portion of your combo as well. His Cage is the buggiest thing in existence and the lane would be much easier if Riot fixed it. But its Riot games so we cannot expect too much. Yorick WITHOUT his ghouls is free food. You have to make sure he does not touch the wave. STOP HIM from generating graves. If he has ghouls then you are in trouble, as you have to give him lane priority which also means he can generate EVEN MORE graves. Yorick beats you by unleashing his army on you and then kiting away from you using the cage. This is why you have to have your ghost when fighting him as you need to both stick to him, Kite away from his empowered auto AND kite from his ghouls. Try to freeze Yorick off of the wave as this allows you to run him down and it stops him from generating ghouls. Madien makes his matchup a nightmare. Try to get hit by his skill shot under turret so that the Maiden aggros onto you and dies under turret. The 50% of your HP you lost from doing this is worth not having Maiden in the fight. Conqueror works well in this lane. Aftershock is nice to have if he manages to catch you within his cage. Overall, if you force him into an all in if he doesn’t land his Cage, he is dead. And even if he does land the cage, a trick you can do is wait for him to throw out his skillshot that aggroes the ghouls and Maiden to you, and then flash towards him to try to kill him. Yorick is a losing matchup and you HAVE to mechanically outplay him in order to beat him down.”
Drake6401 says “You win pre 6 and any time his ult is down. Your mobility helps you escape his traps and dodge his E. Zone him off the wave the best you can. It's the most effective way to shut him down because only his ultimate will return his edge so get a lead before then if possible. Yorick's level 6 is fairly strong but has a very long cooldown. Try to kill his Maiden when you can. ”

Olaf Only says “Yorick is weak until 6. After 6 focus on farming and roaming. Olaf is stronger in midgame teamfights.”

Stinkee says “If you ever get caught in Yorick's cage you will either take a lot of damage or die. Yorick hard counters champions that do not have dashes. He will generally try to use his cage after his E. If he misses his cage and his E you can look to take a short trade but watch out for his ghouls, their damage adds up fast. You can use your E on his ult to throw it far away. Buy armor and health and max Q or W.”
MythicMike says “His early presence is not that strong so poke him whenever he walks up. The cage is not that dangerous since you can just dash out. Can be a bit hard to land W since you're going to be swarmed by minions, but you don't wanna all in him so it doesn't matter that much. With his maiden you can't fight him, but without it you can look for a good trade and possible all in.”
Aatrox Top by MythicMike | Aatrox Player
Anoying bro5 says “Lvl 1 you win if you Q poke vitals and attack him when his Q is on cooldown. This matchup you need to mainly dodge his E, or parry it if you plan to engage. It is on a fairly long cd. Look to dodge E, then engage with Q, and parry Q. After 6 his ult gives him a lot of lifesteal, so buy executioners, or kill his ult full engage. If he gets ahead he can be an issue.”
Sovereign Kitten says “You're going to need to increase your ability to side step and avoid his (W) and (E) if he catches you with either you really have no reliable way of escaping, except with a pair of boots of swiftness. Try to (Q) him while he tries to grave stack a minion to slow down his ghoul spam. PTA is often the better choice in higher ELO to simply match his hard split-push potential. Hurricane will make short work of his ghouls and prevent a large split-push. That's it really. If he can't catch you, he can't deal with you. If you're playing any other rune, you can just max (Q) if you wish. Respect his presence and never leave him alone. ”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
iZeal says “Dodge his E. Your Q deals almost no damage to his Maiden and his Ghouls. Becomes almots impossible to win later on since Yorick gets insane base stats and just runs you down. Your impact in teamfights is still respectable though.”
[Patch 11.5] iZeal's Aatrox compendium by iZeal | Aatrox Player
Raen says “Your E blocks his Q and autoattacks from his ghouls. Try to dodge his E so you won't get all his army ghouls at your face. After Tabi and Botrk you should win 1 vs 1. Ignite/Executioner's can be useful vs Yorick Q/Grasp.”

Tips Against Yorick in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Suseri says “You win Level 1-2 after that wait for 6 and Rageblade and you can run him down.”
[S11] The Best Master Yi Guide ✔️ by Suseri | Master Yi Player
Polarshift says “Not fun to play against, but you can Q through him or minions to get out of his cage; otherwise you'll have to hit it quite a few times especially later in the game. He doesn't win early fights if his minions arent up. He's dangerous when his maiden is up; his ult does % maximum health every 2 seconds. His E skillshot does % current health damage and makes his minions jump to you which all take one basic to kill.”

liserith says “Yorick jungle isn't what it was last year, but it's still alright. With his minions, his clears are relatively healthy, and he can deal massive damage. However, the biggest problem about Yorick is his W, which literally has no effect on you. Kite to win. ”
Off-Meta Non-Crit Kindred by liserith | Kindred Player
VelocityCrack says “What a mess. His minions counter you hard, hard, hard. All champs that summon minions like Elise, Malzahar or Yorick are a headache because you can't isolate them. Apart from that, his damage and resistant is high because he is kind of a tower-destroyer bruiser. Don't face him or he will bury you.”

Trexer039 says “Top Problems When he hits 6 your going to get abused and forced out of lane. However if you can kill his Maiden and you are not behind you should be able to 1v1 him. Also be mindful to not force it as his wall trap can get you killed”

McDank says “anticipate his Dark Procession wall and try not to get hit by his poke and play around his minions. Other than that you win with your ult.”
Ponds says “Yorick is difficult to deal with, play smart and you beat him. But you have to be a better player all around to beat him when he is the top laner. I suggest not ganking this lane unless you have to. ”
