Tips Against Yorick in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Cryniu says “Juega neutral y un poco más agresivo antes de nivel 6.
Si él compra Brillo compra botas de armadura.
Si él compra Curación compra vesta espinosa.
Usa tu E para sorprenderlo o evitar que te encierre en su muro.
Tu combo de Q+W es clave para evitar el daño de él y sus trotanieblas.
Ten cuidado al rotar, si abandonas mucho tu torre él la hará trizas.
Casi no sirve la tenacidad contra yorick.”
havy says “yorick heals with his Q, his ghouls block your E, and his cage disrupts you real bad, ALSO DO NOT LEAVE HIM ALONE IN LANE, HE WILL TAKE YOUR TOWER EASILY.
play until lost chapter and then ask for help from ur jungler”
GG Cannon says “One of the easiest to deal against as long as you don't leave him alone in lane. You can easily escape his wall with rappel, his zombies are mostly fodder for you and your spiderlings early one and you can easily outheal him and chase him if he tries to escape.”
TheChoz3nOne says “My point of view has changed on the threat level of this champion. You can outplay him easily on first 3-lvls. Try to predict his movements even before the minions get spawned with your W boxes. 2 boxes can almost kill him if they do all their damage. So for this match-up you just need to get control over him and then not get behind. He got his annoying wall so don't use your Q until he use that ability to escape from it and take him down.
If you didn't kill him or didn't get control over him you won't really kill him because he is becoming too tanky for you. Magic Pen boots can help you to deal a bit more damage.”
Your Desired Username says “Easy match-up. Rush steelcaps, bramble if you're having major difficulties. Harass him level 1 and try to deny him graves, but don't sweat it. Stand back level 2 and try not to get hit by his e. Levels 3-5 i don't recommend messing with this guy too much (granted he didn't majorly fuck up in any way) as he can deal surprisingly huge amounts of damage if he hits you with e and has at least 3 graves/ghouls. Additionally, if he hits you with his w pre-6, you can kiss your flash or the color of your screen goodbye (at least for a few seconds). Post-6 is pretty much why this match-up is so easy. Three of his abilities make him rely on external units/minions during fights, meaning that he can't do much without maiden, ghouls and w. A VERY important thing to note here, is that you shouldn't ult him when his w is up, he can use it to keep you at a safe distance while waiting for Brazil to run out. With that being said, if he hits you with e post-6 and w's you with ghouls attacking you, simply ult and beat the shit out of him. Even if he spawns maiden inside of Brazil, she will only live for 7 seconds, as Brazil kills all units inside when it runs out. You outscale him but never underestimate the power of his split-push. Within a minute he can push all the way to your inhib from t2 tower if no one is guarding him, so always have someone matching him if he's splitting.”
boboderaffe says “Past 6, if you manage to sidestep his abilities, which is honestly not that hard, you can fight him even with his Maiden up UNLESS he built grievous wounds early. Your Q is very effective against everything: it will hit him, his ghouls and his maiden. With your ult you will heal off of his maiden and ghouls as well, on top of him and his minion wave. If you do not manage to kill him or his maiden during your ult, you will have missed your chance and shouldn’t try again. Without your ult and with his still up he can and will kill you. ”
BreadedBreadCrum says “Yorick is a wavepushing, tower destroying champion. It's not you that he will be killing, its all 11 of your towers. Since he builds Hullbreaker, it breaks apart your entire gameplan of mixed damage. Go Grasp for trading potential and make sure to use E against his Q and build some sort of AS for his goblins. Stride is okay, BoRK is good.”
Atomragnar says “Pre 6 you win, poke with Q, use autoattack reset with your W for his cage.
After 6 it gets harder if you haven't gotten a lead vs him. His maiden makes him really strong. You can still win all ins but play smart, try to poke. ”
COJA says “You must be careful of your E usage or you may become trapped in his cage. Ghouls can easily bodyblock W. Don't try to all-in him from full hp while he has Maiden. You can zone him off of the wave if you are strong enough to prevent him from acquiring ghouls.”
Eduardocwalle says “Ur roaming posibilities fades away once u see the enemy team lock yorick. U can left lane cause he will destroy ur inhibitor tower at 15 minutes. He wins the tardes just by spamming creeps, really annoying. He will rush hullbreaker, so be carefull and ask your jungler for some help.”
Polartech says “Dodge his Bones Cages and Yorick's Shovel Smash to stay alive, don't take free risk and don't push the lane, poke him if you are able to farm without using abilities, and wait for ganks.”
Black Demon Ezel says “This one has always been a pet peeve of mine but it's not a massive deal for me to work with. He summons a monster with his ult but if you can bait that out then he's screwed because it won't travel inside your own ultimate with him”
King Turtle says “Yorick has some annoying poke with his E and ghouls but it's nothing crazy, the real problem comes post 6 when he can put down the maiden and drag it around with him for 20 minutes before someone finally kills it. It's going to be used on you CONSTANTLY. ”
Sandor Clegane98 says “Although all ins are in your favor,be sure not get cornered by his ghouls into that cage thingy of his,u'll get demolished especially after 6, if you manage to dodge his E then look for an all in.”
davidbiton1 says “yorick will shred through you like butter, he can block you in place forcing you the aa the cage extremly slowly while attacking you with his minons, you may wanna dodge a lane against him.”
MrZoltannn says “Yoricks ult is your biggest enemy, since you have a small attack range, try to poke it down with your Q and proc W. You can go all in at lvl 3 with ignite. lvl 6 can be played well, since his ult has a small delay.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
lol Wero says “Not much of a threat but if you ever see a Yorick one trick who is able to play against an auto range match up, then yorick is able to be a threat to neeko. His Maid (Ultimate) is difficult to kill during the laning phase.”
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 with the new patch his minions deal 200% extra damage when they jump to you. 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 scale 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 just be sure to never leave him alone in any lane.
BoilTheOil says “Take Conqueror. Try your hardest to dodge his E or you will take a ton of damage from ghouls. Your auto attacks are fast so use them to kill his ghouls quick. Don't use E until he uses his wall on you so you can pull him back when he tries to run away. Prioritize the maiden over Yorick, if the maiden is dead Yorick is basically useless. ”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Mourning Mist(E) and majority of his damage will be gone. Avoid fighting him while he has Maiden of the Mist(R), if you can try to kill the Maiden if Yorick is not nearby. Avoid getting caught by Dark Procession(W) or feel the wrath of his full combo. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Yorick) (Outscaling Edge: Singed) (Recommended Items: Demonic Embrace, Plated Steelcaps or Boots of Swiftness)”
The_Unf0rgiv3n says “For some reason, you cant block his E with your windwall anymore and this makes the matchup really annoying.
If you want to rush Kraken Slayer, make sure you have some life steal as well before you go in for a long trade.”
LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Thresh can bully Yorick a bit early lvls and maybe even kill him if he starts corrupting potion instead of doran's shield.
However this lane becomes unplayable after lvl 6 as you can never kill his maiden (unless he's bad) and his wall makes it hard to get away from him. He also does mixed damage and has a great splitpush. Anathemas is mandatory here but the game is going to be hard.”
Veng Shotz says “Good Yorick players will always hold their wall for when you waste dash. The problem with this lane is that good yoricks will also position themselves to not get hit with Q unless you waste dash, you get walled, you get e'd. ghouls jump on you, and he walks up with q and you either burn flash or die.
If thats not bad enough, ghouls can also proc GW from executioners, take little damage from Aoe abilities, so Q wont even kill them even if you land all 3, and you are forced to auto both the ghouls and the wall if you dont have E ready.
This lanes generally unplayable till 6 where if you ult properly and dont get walled off, you can fear his ghouls and maidens long enough to either kill him or force him to burn flash, this is the one of the few lanes where you need jungle coordination. ”
quinn adc says “The Yorick matchup is pretty easy for a ranged champion, and especially for Quinn.
Yorick relies on using his W cage, Dark Procession to trap the enemy, and then uses his ghouls and combo to punish them.
The cage early on only requires 2 hits to break, but later it's 4 hits.
To escape Yorick's Cage, when his ghouls are sent to you, just vault on his ghouls and you will escape every single time.
If your E is down, auto the cage until it breaks, though you should be saving vault to counter his cage engage in laning phase.
Next, Yorick's E is a cone ability that is his main source of damage; try to dodge this ability by side stepping it since it goes in a line.
The range is 700, so play kinda far back, or away from Yorick to prevent him from landing this.
If he lands it and sends his ghouls at you, simply vault his ghouls and you will be pushed back to safety.
Yorick relies on his ghouls to damage you, but if you escape from his cage and his E is down, instantly engage on him becasue he is a useless melee champ at that point.
If his E hits you, Q his ghouls and auto them until they die.
Yorick relies on his E for his ghouls to be effective. If he doesn't land this ability on you, then you don't have to be afraid of his ghouls.
His ultimate is a bit scarier because the range is 600, so we can't just go into auto range to beat the maiden up.
We ideally want it dead, but only go for autos on it when Yorick isn't threatening you with his abilities off cooldown.”
Amphawn says “Try not to get trapped in his W, and if you do, escape quickly with your E. Play back and be careful when you poke to not get stuck in his cage. Dodge his E and try to kill his pet if he neglects it at all. If he gets on top of you, he can do a ton of damage, but if you're able to avoid letting him get in melee range, you can win lane.”
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.”
SunFalk says “He has a cage. He his tanky. He has minions. He has a slow. He has life steal. He has an auto attack enhance. - Yorick is one of the worst matchup for Yuumi, first of all, he's a lane bully so play safe and don't get caught up. Secondly, he will split push so make sure your team is able to stop him when laning phase is finished.”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Mourning Mist(E) and majority of his damage will be gone. Avoid fighting him while he has Maiden of the Mist(R), if you can try to kill the Maiden if Yorick is not nearby. Avoid getting caught by Dark Procession(W) or feel the wrath of his full combo. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Yorick) (Outscaling Edge: Dr.Mundo) (Recommended Items: Bramble Vest, Plated Steelcaps or Boots of Swiftness)”
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.”
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.”
P1Legend says “The only reason I'm putting Yorick here is because riot games still has not fixed the bug where you can't auto reset on his cage, leading to Rengar having a seizure while trying to attack it and taking free damage while you fight against basic game mechanics. if this does not happen to you, this matchup is probably closer to a 3 - 4 until late game, if you are taking smart trades and avoiding getting caged outside bushes. if he cages you while you are in a bush, simply leap to something else that is around and run away until the mark wears off. If the bug happens to you resulting in death, try not to break your monitor.”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Mourning Mist(E) and majority of his damage will be gone. Avoid fighting him while he has Maiden of the Mist(R), if you can try to kill the Maiden if Yorick is not nearby. Avoid getting caught by Dark Procession(W) or feel the wrath of his full combo. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Yorick) (Outscaling Edge: Trundle) (Recommended Items: Bramble Vest, Plated Steelcaps or Boots of Swiftness)”
A_Drunk_Carry says “As a resident Yorick main (consult my guide) this matchup is laughable. Yorick will max wall 2nd, and make your life miserable. As you auto or even waste Q on the wall Yorick and his ghouls + Maiden will bring the pain train to you.
The best way to win this matchup is to wait for Yorick to miss his wall and Wither him. Walk up and Q the Maiden during this. She doesn't regen hp unless she's in the fountain, and Yorick isn't a champ without her. ”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Mourning Mist(E) and majority of his damage will be gone. Avoid fighting him while he has Maiden of the Mist(R), if you can try to kill the Maiden if Yorick is not nearby. Avoid getting caught by Dark Procession(W) or feel the wrath of his full combo. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Yorick) (Outscaling Edge: Malphite) (Recommended Items: Sunfire Cape, Ninja's Tabi or Boots of Swiftness)”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Mourning Mist(E) and majority of his damage will be gone. Avoid fighting him while he has Maiden of the Mist(R), if you can try to kill the Maiden if Yorick is not nearby. Avoid getting caught by Dark Procession(W) or feel the wrath of his full combo. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Yorick) (Outscaling Edge: Warwick) (Recommended Items: Blade of the Ruined King, Plated Steelcaps or Boots of Swiftness)”
Phrxshn says “Dodge his Mourning Mist(E) and majority of his damage will be gone. Avoid fighting him while he has Maiden of the Mist(R), if you can try to kill the Maiden if Yorick is not nearby.

(Sustained 1v1 Trades: Yorick) (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Recommended Items: Bramble Vest, Plated Steelcaps or Boots of Swiftness)”
montybucket says “Yorick's got the same spikes as you so you can try and abuse him early and at 6. but once the laning phase is over he's gonna perch himself in a side lane and split push. However you easily beat him 1v1 with ulti when he's trying to split. ”
TroviStyle says “[Conqueror] Super annoying laner to play against. Whenever he has ghouls and/or maiden u cant really fight him. Get Rid of the maiden if he stays away from it. if u go even through laning phase you can 1 vs 1 him whenever he doesnt have maiden but you have ult as long as he doesnt have too many ghouls before the fight starts. As a little extra, you can stay on the edge of his cage when he places it and use W, allowing you to block the knockback from the cage and stun him.”
LegitLechner says “His ghouls block your e. Very hard lane to come back when down. Survive and play the better split pusher game. Depends on the skill of the player. Not illaoi friendly but Good illaois dont care. ”
OTP Toxin says “Always keep moving! You ARE able to dodge his Es and his W; IF you got stuck in his W, insta blind him! he will miss his Q on you, then plant mushrooms in your feet, it will damage his ghouls and his ult! Try to hit his prison in this meanwhile and run away or kite him to death. :)”
SilverAvalanche says “You need to dodge his E and have your E ready when he tries to cage you.
Try and zone him off minions pre 6, and if he stand in the minion wave just just Q the whole thing and damage him as much as possible to make him waste his Pots early, so he will run out of mana.
Else I highly recommend buying anti heal if you killed him early or else just fight when his Ignite is up.
It is fair if you trade Q for Q but try and see if you can't catch him off guard when he goes to Q a minion, although it will be easy for him to hit his E when you are walking up or have Q'ed him, so make sure there are not no more than 1 grave around, so you won't take too much damage you do get hi.”
King Turtle says “With his Q dealing good damage and having nothing you can parry for a stun, he can duel you without outright losing, and once he hits 6 he can just drag his maiden around and watch as you try to kill it, which just doesn't work a majority of the time.”
pokeyminch5236 says “Yorick's main threats are his cage and his split-pushing potential. You don't have an escape from the cage aside from flash or destroying it but it takes precious seconds and health. Try to dodge his E and punish him for it. If he traps you in the cage, stun him and use the attack speed to break it down quickly”
MCSwavest says “Yorick is scary, even if you are ahead. One good cage from him can make you lose any trade, and he will one shot you even after titanic hydra. Play safe, focus on procing passive from far away and farming grasp, and look to help around the map.”
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.
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. 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.”
RivalOCE says “Look to trade level 1, you beat him hard. Healing cut is good here after maybe second base. If you dodge his 'E' (the weird thing he throws at you that makes his creeps jump on you) you can trade freely. This matchup is similar to Illaoi in that you can fight if you dodge his E, if not wait it out. Try not to fight when his maiden is up, look to kill it before all-inning him. You should just 1 shot him when he's 50% HP, but he scales pretty well. You can 3Q out of his box ability.”
The Rock Titan says “"[Comet, Corrupting Potion, Q > W] - After lvl3 and onward, this lane just becomes harder and harder... Just farm and dodge his E skillshot so you don't get jumped by his ghosts.
- You can try to trade if he missed his E, while not having a lot of graves up...
- Get boots 2 early for sure."”
Amvill says “His W is similar to Veigar's cage however you need to auto it in order to escape, making it a BIG oops to be caught by. He can also duel you if he has items under his belt to the point where he beats you every time.”
The Real Fake says “You outdamage hard once your Q and Conqueror are stacked. He doesn't have enough burst to kill you, so you can keep healing through his damage. Your Q just shreds his ghouls so you can focus him while wiping out his ghouls at the same time. If he tries to wall you, you can just ult. Even without ult, you can use your enhanced E auto on the wall/minion/yorick/ghoul to dash through it (this occurs due to the knockback from E and how you follow your target in the knockback animation). He can't ever kill you but you can kill him. You can always pick favorable fights and disengage unfavorable fights. He split pushes better than you, but you are much more useful in teamfights and more mobile than him. You can beat him in 1v1's throughout the whole game, but the fights get closer mid to late game. Reccomended for you to either stack your Q up before you fight or have ignite available, then it should be heavily in your favor.”
Rhoku says “Yorick's kit is very weird to fight as he isn't really coded like the rest of the game. His Madien doesn't work like other spawns and his wall is a buggy piece of shit that breaks the game which is what most Yorick players rely on. If he traps you in his cage and lands his skillshot onto you AND has ghouls up, you can kiss 60% of your HP goodbye. Just get the hell out of there. Don't stand and fight. You WILL die. Fortunately, level 6 is much easier for you. You want to bait him into using his cage and his ultimate first. Once he does that, you will ult him and remove BOTH out of the equation. He will have no annoying ghouls, no maiden to save him and no way to delay his death. With proper usage of your ultimate, this lane is a piece of cake. Even if you somehow lose, you also outscale him so don't panic.”
YasTilt says “Really Tanky and a good Split-Pusher.
Dodge his E so you don't get jumped on by his Ghouls. You can Stack your Q and dash on his Ghouls so abuse of that. don't let him Trap you and take Anti-Heal because his Build will surely Heal him.”
FeedLaneGetCaryd says “(Bone Plating+Armor+DBlade) Your W kills his ghouls super quickly, whenever he W succesfully you want to auto attack it and try to kill it ASAP (if you have Stridebreaker you can escape his W simply by using it), also try to kill his maiden if he is careless with how he positions it. Yorick is weak early game so do not let him farm early. Both champs scale very well and you'll probably have to answer his splitpush a lot.”
jmp_01_ says “Take Conqueror. Try your best to dodge his E, otherwise you'll just take too much damage and even your Doran's Shield will become useless. Prioritize the maiden over Yorick. Once the maiden is dead Yorick is much weaker and easier to kill. Don't ever fight him when he has his maiden. It does too much magic damage and even stacks Conqueror. ”
Psychopathic Top says “Yorick is hard because he can max W second and wall you off completely. In a way, he is similar to Nasus, but a lot less bursty but more consistent as a champion. Early game, focus on staying alive and dodging his Es (HIS E GOT BUFFED RECENTLY IF YOU DONT DODGE THIS YOU WILL DIE), as those trigger his little ghouls to attack you, which can chunk you out a lot (they also tend to have a very hard to hit hitbox, which not sure if intended or not but gives Nasus a tumor). Post sheen and level 6, look to take out his maiden before going all in. This is hard to do, because if you attack Yorick’s maiden, he will focus you. Usually, R to clear his maiden, and continue farming. Yorick’s maiden is a longer cd then Nasus’s R, so trading Rs with Yorick isn’t too bad. Just make sure to kill his maiden before focusing him, or you will never win vs him. Yorick would likely split push all game with demolish and tp, so make sure you are forcing fights around the map so he doesn’t get what he wants in the mid game. It is hard to split against him, as his W takes 4 autos to kill at rank 5 (starting at rank 4), and Nasus cannot get out of his W like mobile champs can.”
DippyDan says “Overall strong bruiser, very annoying to deal with if there is many ghouls, or has maiden. TIPS:  Take short trades while preparing to Parry his Q.  Don't fight with too many ghouls spawn, just let minions crash at turret.  Take any chance to kill maiden without dying so it can go on CD. ”
Hecki says “Playing against Yorick can be easy or hard. All-in him if he misses his E since it's the only way for him to deal proper damage with his ghouls. If he hits it you should run AND ONLY USE YOUR E AFTER HE PUTS DOWN HIS W or else you might get stuck and easy to kill for Yorick. Try to harass him with your Q until you can all-in him. If his maiden is up you should be extra careful about getting hit by his E.”
IvernLover74856 says “He might think he wins early, but he doesn't if you have ignite and he doesn't.
You can hop out of his flesh circle and single-target kill his creeps with bonus AS%.
Try not to get trapped and sucked by maiden, try not to let him splitpush.
4 stacks is useful. Kill maiden ASAP.
recommend sunderer -> runaan's -> cleaver”
DemonicTrail says “If i didnt hate darius too much and if he had a higher play rate i would ban this champ, his ghouls stop your E, you have slow attack speed to kill them all, and your abilities dont 1 shot them ever, try kill the maiden if you ever try to fight him”
Truculent65 says “Illaoi's low mobility makes Mourning Mist hard to dodge and they will prevent you from getting your CS or touching him. Even if you land E, he can wall you and let his Maiden drain you of HP while he shoves lane.”
Unmasked Kayle says “[Standard runes; Overgrowth] Rush boots. Standard bruiser fight in which you need to avoid his CC abilities (E and W). When you fear an engage, save your E for auto reset if you get hit by his cage. At 6 he loses the ability to freeze so it becomes a free lane.”
Alan234 says “Any rune is fine.
Yorick doesnt really die. You can poke him early but after 6 his dps is strong. You HAVE to dodge his e if you want to survive. You HAVE to predict his w or you will blow flash/die to ganks. Q him when he goes for q's so that he cant get ghouls up as quick. When he gets his ult try to attack it if its pushing the wave. Otherwhise you just wait for your jungle in laning phase. Try to teamfight before he becomes a splitpush monster”
Mr. Popper says “Yorick does high single target damage with his Q and R. but him getting to you is hard for him. Save your Jump to get out of his cage or if he is far enough back you can jump away after he sends his ghouls on you. I recommend taking Fleet Footwork into him.”
RhinoStar says “Yorick is a hard matchup unless yorick is very bad. He can use his W in order to trigger your passive and then it can be followed by an easy gank. So try to not fight him a lot but keep farming until eventually you will become stronger !”
King Turtle says “Once you go in there's a good chance yorick will put you in his cage and since you don't have E+Q he can abuse you super hard. Your lack of attack speed early also makes it hard to kill the ghouls since they only die to autos. He's really difficult to trade with and is best to be avoided. ”
MrShykun says “MATCHUP TRES DIFFICILE. NE PUSHER PAS LA LANE SANS REFLECHIR ESSAYER DE LE FREEZE SI POSSIBLE NE MOURREZ PAS LEVEL 3 AVEC SES 4 GOULES ESSAYER D'ESQUIVER LA CAGE A TOUT PRIX ESSAYER DE LE FIGHT QUAND IL N'A PAS DE GOULE. ESSAYER DE BAIT SON ULTIME A PROXIMIT2 DE VOTRE TOUR POUR POUVOIR LA TUER OU BIEN VOUS NE POURREZ PAS GAGNER UN FIGHT CONTRE YORICK SI ELLE EST AVEC LUI A MOINS QUE VOUS NE L'AYEZ OUTPLAY MASSIVEMENT. YORICK FAIT DES DEGATS AD ET AP DONC C'EST ASSEZ DIFFICILE D'ITEMISER CONTRE LUI. LE RUSH TABIS EST BIEN. Yorick est une voie TRÈS embêtante à gérer. En tant que champion immobile, si Yorick a des goules et qu'il vous attrape dans sa cage, vous devez Flash out pour éviter de mourir ou vous pouvez AA+W la cage (EN EARLY seulement) pour en sortir rapidement surtout que AA+W la cage ne vous rend pas le cd de votre W. Yorick sans ses goules est assez facile a tuer essayer de l'empêcher de toucher a la wave car si il a la prio de lane il pourra tout le temp générer des goules et ne sera pas tradable. Il vous battra en envoyant son armée sur vous et en vous enfermer vous aurez besoin du ghost pour le trade efficacement et jouer en vous rapprochant de lui mais également en faisant du kiting si vous pouvez le freeze cela lui empêchera de générer des goules. De toute façon si vous esquiver la cage vous pourrez tenter un all in si toute ses conditions sont remplis et si il vous lance la cage attendez qu'il lance son E pour flasher en esquivant et tenter de le tuer, Yorick est un matchup perdant pour Darius et vous aurez besoin de l'outplay pour pouvoir espérer le battre.”
OnslaughtOfPwnys says “New Items made Yorick a Split Pushing Machine. Avoid his W with your E and then try to dodge his E. Then he won't be able to do anything else against you.
"I will not send you to death, Yorick! I bring oblivion!"”
Bombabo says “Yorick is a nusciance to urgot, primarily because Urgot's W targeting almost never prioritizes Yorick's ghouls or his wall. If you can force him to fight without giving him time to set up, you should be ok. Try your best to avoid engaging on him when he has his ult.”
XtheZ115 says “Skillmatch. You can kill his ghouls just as fast as he can make them, but the Maiden will chunk you if he lands the wall around you. Play safe, and hope you are a better Singed than he is a Yorick.
Take the "normal runes" and Flash Ghost to make your life easier”
SettVEVO says “Yorick is a champion similar to Illaoi where it kinda doesn't matter who you play as the strategy is always the same against them. Pre 6 you have a huge advantage. His box takes 2 AAs which mean you can pop it quickly with your passive. You can use his ghouls for E stunning. But once he gets maiden just don't fight until she's dead. Once she is you win. If he is close enough you can ult him out of his box as well. After laning phase he will splitpush cause he sucks in teamfights. So just force objectives fast with team and win the 4v5s.”
Fryx says “This matchup is a bit annoying. You can't really stop him when his ult is up. Dodge his e and go for trades afterwards. Any e from him on you will do good damage so be careful. Trade with Comet and keep him off the wave. If he wants to hit your tower straightup ult him and bonk him hard he can't attack you or he gets Tower Aggro.”
wff010 says “ Early game, you easily win. Post six, he'll beat you until you get gore . He's going to permapush with his ult and minions. Don't get low enough to be dived. Just farm till you have first item (preferably before he does). When you do, all in him when you have ult. Save ult for his wall so you can ult him out of it and stick onto him till he dies. Remember to save gore and w for when you're low. Gore heals more when you're lower.”
LoLReal says “Yorick is deceptively strong against Morde. This is ultimately a skill match up, we have to avoid his E or he can harass us out of lane. If we avoid E/ghoul toss we can out trade him. We win post 6.”
qosmox says “Get the slowpush early and place the blade up. The biggest risk in this matchup is to get 100 to 0’d (or close to it) if you ever taunt in for a trade and then get boxed in when you try to back out. So never use the taunt aggressively unless he’s already in kill range OR you’re getting a gank. If he ever uses his E to poke you and misses, that’s when you can walk up to him and trade with short grasp Q’s (and keeping taunt for disengage if needed). He’s an easy gank if your jungler comes.”
SanLourdes says “Yorick's cage is his main threat. Once he has it on cooldown you should be relatively safe. Use your Q to clear out his ghouls. Use E on his maiden to push it away. If you get caught in his E try to use your Q to stop him from dealing too much damage.”
CucumberSandwich says “You can't really do much in this matchup, as sticking on Yorick will allow him to cage you and use his minions on you. He also builds Sunderer, which destroys Amumu. Just try to roam and teamfight as much as possible, as you won't be able to do anything to him in lane.”
calbino says “Yorick is only a threat due to the fact that his minions take reduced damage from your Q. If they didn't, this matchup would be "Cheese". Saving your E is essential in this matchup, and your W will be blocked by his minions more times than you would like. It's also very difficult to kill Maiden without him literally being afk to let it happen.”
Jaori says “He won't do much against your sustain. After you make him go 0/5, he will probably keep bot-pushing in the top lane, since he is just a worse version of Trundle. Join your team and end the match fast, even though you outscale him.”
ForgottenProject says “A Well Rounded Champion. There's nothing that makes him OP but he's just overall a strong Pick.
Dont fight him when he has Ghouls.
Parry his Q.
Dont waste your Q on random things early or he'll lock you down with his wall and you're dead since you cant hit any vitals when you're in it and your Q is on CD.
Dont fight him when he has Conq and His Maiden Up it's pretty much Feeding unless you're ahead.”
oogoogerson says “Yorick has more kill pressure on you and is too tanky to kill so you need to just take Teleport into the matchup. His ultimate is extremely annoying and don't let him all-in you with his cage. His ultimate needs to be down before you think about trying to kill him.”
SethPRG says “Yorick is very easy to fight early, but once he gets Level 6 and especially so Divine Sunderer, it becomes very difficult. Bully him early game and push into his tower to make him lose some CS. Dodge his mist and his early damage goes away. Past Level 6 his Maiden does a lot of damage in an all in, look to kill it when Yorick's W is down. When you find yourself fighting him past Level 6, you have 2 advantages. If he traps you in his W, you can ult him to get out of the cage if he's close enough, that, and you can stun him into his own maiden. Use these 2 advantages as best as you can. It's best to go an early Bramble, and then rush Trinity Force as soon as possible, hoping to kill him through sheer damage and being slightly ahead because of your dominant early game. ”
joelspaho121 says “Yorick favored. D Blade start with sorc tree. Yorick is often picked only to counterpick darius. The only advantage you have over him is pre 6 when he doesnt have his maiden so always look to fight him if he doesnt have 4 graves/ghouls as you hard outdamage him earlier on. If lane goes even for too long he will just outscale you and permakill you. Try to make his lane a nightmare before he tries to do anything with R. If he doesnt know how to use W this is a free lane.”
El Leon Gnar says “Yorick is fairly strong at 6 but you should be able to just abuse him early with Q's and shred his maiden when he's not on top of you. Save E for when you're caged and he's closing in on you.”
DaSticks says “Honestly an annoying champion. Kill his ghouls when it's easy to do so. The most important thing is to dodge his E, if he lands it his ghouls will deal alot of damage and the slow will allow him to cage you. You can blind his Q.”
Kaizin says “Not enough experience against Yorick to give a detailed breakdown of the matchup. All I can say is bramble vest is good against him as it reduces his Q healing and conqueror healing. It also deals damage to his ghouls and your passive lightning deals full damage to the ghouls as well. Avoid all ins if he has the maiden (His R) as his damage is very high. Try to dodge his E if you can, it does % magic damage and his ghouls leap to you.”
SirGRC says “Worth a Ban: Yes
Dodge E or dodge game. Although he hits like a truck, if you run away with your W up his summons should do no damage. Do not be afraid to build an hourglass. Also, remember it is better to be down 20-30 CS than to be up 2-3 deaths.”
deathwalker7119 says “DODGE HIS E OR DODGE THE GAME. If his E hits you, you are 100% dead. You need to avoid getting caught in his wall without having Q or else you will just get hit by a free E and run down. Don't fall behind as he will simply snowball like crazy and make the game unplayable. You need to look for an all in whenever his maiden has just died or isn't available.”
Womsky says “Scaling/mixed setup, Easy matchup, dodge E and spin with fury, u beat him up all game long, just care about his ulti, it can do good damage if you dont pay attention for it, if you get trapped in his wall, remember that critting his wall will reduce your spin cd by 1 sec, so u spin again on him”
RealIreliaCarriesU says “Start Q and stack your passive, generally a pretty easy lane but can be hard if you don't get an advantage before he hits level 6. I recommend getting executioners early as it will help you a lot when all inning him post 6. Should be a breeze since he is so easy to kill as Irelia before 6 but make sure to ALWAYS avoid getting hit by his E, its pretty slow and its necessary to dodge it after 6 if you want to win.”
tibs2 says “Bramble rush. Really annoying match up but not the worst. If he ever cages you can just e to a minion or yorick himself and get out. If he e you and his ghouls jump at you, you can just w them and they get bonked. You just kinda go even and outscale in most cases.”
JeanMichelBambi says “Yorick is an absolute monster right now, his minions deal absurd amounts of damage and make hooking him near impossible, what you should focus on is farming and pulling his maiden under tower whenever you can.”
teemodumbstupid says “As of 11.8, It is much easier to play against Yorick. You can stack off of his ghouls. This matchup is pretty easy now because you can outheal is ghoul damage with Q + Fleet. Conqueror also works, but I do not recommend Phase Rush against him.”
Urgodzilla says “Your W kills his ghouls really fast but if he traps you inside of his W you might be in trouble, because his W is the last priority target for your W and you can't E away from his W once you are inside of it.”
Oskarl3 says “you have no way of escaping his cage, and when you stand still in your q he will use his e and throw his minions at you. go goredrinker and try to farm and survive the lane, with sanguine blade you can match his splitpush.”
ZeruelOP says “Annoying really cant do anything since your e isnt enough to kill his ghouls just tower hug and try to look for a kill if he makes a mistake I recommend just wait till you get Stride Breaker and help in the Teamfights instead of going for that kill Early”
jmp_01_ says “Really good split-pushing champion. Make sure to avoid getting hit by his Q - Last Rites with Sheen. Has healing, and good damage output to make you low in no time with his cage and his passive - Shepherd of Souls. Careful with his Ult - Eulogy of the Isles. It is truly strong and don't underestimate it.”
Draconic56 says “Yorick's kit is very weird to fight as he isn't really coded like the rest of the game. His Maiden doesn't work like other spawns and his wall is buggy and breaks the game which is what most Yorick players rely on. If he traps you in his cage and lands his skill shots onto you and has ghouls up, you can say goodbye to 60% of your HP. Just get the hell out of there. Don't stand and fight. You WILL die. Fortunately, level 6 is much easier for you. You want to bait him into using his cage and his ultimate first. Once he does that, you will ult him and remove BOTH out of the equation. He will have no annoying ghouls, no maiden to save him, and no way to delay his death. With proper usage of your ultimate, this lane is a piece of cake. Even if you somehow lose, you also outscale him so don't panic.”
Kokob5 says “SO long as you avoid E you can win fights pre Six. At six you'll need to ult him after he drops maiden. A good Yorick can kite Mordekaiser in ult using his wall so be careful not to find yourself out of place if he survives inside ult.”
negoZoma69 says “It all depends if you can harass him enough in the early levels and dodge his abilities, otherwise he can trap and oneshot u with his ghouls. If you get hit by E and trapped you may have to use ult. Lv6 he becomes annoying because the maiden deal high dmg and he won't let you kill it.”
Zaloufi says “Yorick is a very annoying lane to deal with. Since Darius lacks mobility, if Yorick has ghouls and manages to catch you in his cage, you're in trouble. What you need to do in this situation is flash (or AA+W the cage quickly) to avoid dying. But sometimes, since his cage is buggy as hell, AA+W killing the cage will actually doesn't reset your W cooldown so you can't trade him properly.
Yorick is a free kill without his ghouls. You must stop him from approaching the wave, which actually prevents him from generating graves. But once he has ghouls you have to give him lane priority in order to survive, which also means he can generate even more graves.
Yorick beats you with his ghouls and his cage which allows him to kite you, which is why you must have your ghost against him so as not to let him retreat without damaging him.
The Maiden is really really strong in 1v1 or even 1v2 situation so try to get hit by his skill shot under your turret so that The Maiden aggros onto you and actually dies under turret or try to kill her when Yorick's going for a recall.
Yorick is a losing matchup and you have to mechanically outplay him in order to beat him. For example you can wait for his spells and then flash in to get closer while he is helpless.
not normal says “There is little that can be done against a Yorick, except wait for mid game, have the whole team (yes, the whole team) come and smack him to pieces, preferably more than once and preferably before he hits lvl 16. He split pushes super hard and is very hard to kill, even without his R (the ghost thing that is super tanky and hurts like a motherfucker) he can be deceptively tanky because of the heals he gets on his Q. He is a weird champion, because if he builds trinity force, most of his damage comes not from his items, but simply because he levels up and that is enough for him to smack caster minions to pieces with one hit. Try to bully him in the early game to get a gold lead, but he pretty much outscales every other top-laner just by being in top-lane all the time.”
SleeplessX says “Sidestep his E, if you succeed you can fight him pre-6, otherwise forget it. Post-6 he's just kinda stronger than you as long as his maiden is up, play for the team while he split pushes but don't let him get inhib”
Lost Robot says “I haven't gone against Yorick very many times, but from what I can tell (and as an occasional Yorick player myself), he can stomp you pretty hard.
Note that his ult makes Yorick's next basic attack every 2 seconds do extra %max health damage to you. However, you can negate his ult by Devouring it and spitting it into your own tower.
That being said, he's quite the threat to you even without his ult.”
Dorom says “After the buffs this champion is very strong. Do not get caught by his wall at ALL COSTS! Always sit under a barrel and don't let yourself get hit by E. Play the lane safe and wait for your jungler.”
Ward The Sky says “He farms very well, his lane sustain and push is one of the best in the game currently, much like Urgot. He's manageable, but super annoying to say the least.
Respect his damage buffs and give him some room while farming, he can burst you down with his Q outta nowhere.”
raede says “I'm still hoping the Yorick buffs were an April Fools joke from Riot but until they stay "Haha we got you!!" we are living with a monster. R out of his cage and try to stick to him. When it comes to a 1 v 1 don't worry about his minions as they die as soon as he does.”
Zac Petista says “Sofre muita pressão na lane e não pode abandonar a torre. Não há como usar o W do yorick para reativar seu Q, o que torna a gaiola dele difícil de escapar. Além disso, é muito difícil matar a donzela, o que torna o Yorick inatingível 90% do tempo. Ao sair da lane para lutar em equipe, o que é o foco do zac, o yorick leva todas as torres do top facilmente.”
Alekra says “It is best to not trade against him. A trades outcome is very dependent on you dodging his E as he looses alot of dmg. You can break his cage faster with your Q AA reset but you will loose most long trades. He will not be able to kill you if you don't overextend.”
Erenando says “His Q deals more damage than yours pre midgame. Make sure to dodge his E's and don't get caged too much. He can destroy you just by pushing and junglers can react to his push with a possible dive. You need to rely on your jungler and bless for Rito games to make a 1v2 while they towerdive.”
GrGamingTeo says “Yorick is not hard to beat early. Once Yorick gets lv6 you need to be more carefull because if he traps you in his wall you are basically dead. So buy a Doran's Blade and bully him non-stop before he hits lv6. Don't even let him think of taking cs because if you let hi farm he will get 3 graves, he will bring 3 ghouls and he is going to shoot them on you and he is going to keep poking you out. Lv2 you grab E, lv3 you grab Q and zone him so he doeasn;t even get exp and once he tries to farm you show him who's boss.”
SpyDaFX says “you can dodge his wall or get out of it with ur E, you should be able to kill him before level 6, you can drop the aggro of his "creeps" by walking to bush, look for an all in before level 6. go Conqueror”
mobsterplatypus says “Every single one of yorick's summons cannot follow him to the realm of death, so carry ignite to killl him there quick. chances are he's running divine surrender, so MAYBE build thornmail.”
Doc Morning Wood says “It can be a fair fight.
But if you play against a Yorick who doesn't miss his E (while he has ghouls), your early game is done.
Plus, his attacks combined with his Maiden's attacks can melt you HP.”
MarkFromSingedMains says “Singed's Q does hardly any damage to Yorick's ghouls, and they hit hard. If you get caught in Yorick's wall you're going to be taking tons of damage. Additionally you can't proxy against Yorick because as soon as he hits level 6 he will cast his ult for the permanent push.”
Devilofthewest says “You win the early game pre lvl 6 very easily. Most yorick players goals are to be splitpushers. Use caution once they have sheen. Lastly get some form of grievous wounds and ask jungler to gank him, he has no escapes and is relatively easy to gank.”
ModelitoTime says “This matchup depends 100% on skill, one of my personal favorite matchups. Take dorans blade or shield either is fine. if he hits you with his E and you see his ghouls lunge toward you just activate your W and is burns them instantly almost. Both of you scale really well so this matchup is 100% even. make sure to land abilities on Yorick and not his Maiden because your W will focus his Maiden rather than Yorick. If you get stuck in his cage just deactivate your W and hit the cage with regular auto attacks. Take notice that late game Yorick can split push really hard, so make sure to save tp for late game to contest split push. But you have better teamfight potential than him so look for teamfight plays and if he is split pushing just tp to lane after teamfight.”
kingchas2 says “You have to dodge his E. As long as you do, you can auto all of his minions with range once you are 6 and it will be super easily to kill him. If you get hit by E you probably will die or burn your flash. It is honestly better to flash his E than get hit by it and have to flash his box. Dodge E -> you win.”
Dannala says “LANE: Poking is not entirely risk free, you can avoid both the W(wall) and E(ghoul throw) but if you get hit by either you are in for a lot of pain if you don't have Rappel up. He's got strong sustain as well and very high pushing power. Timing your poking is essential and if you go even or worse you won't be able to do much when he's around. LATE: He pushes harder and can 1v1 you so splitting against him is not a very valid option. Trying to make a 4v5 while he pushes is an option but it might leave you an inhibitor down if it goes wrong even if he teleports in thanks to his ultimate.”
Hyzerik says “Not a problem, use your Q AA reset on his gouls so he doesn't get poke from them and you just kill his Maiden ult really fast. You can go in once he uses his ghouls on you or if you dodge then then you are good. Make sure to not get trapped by his wall, otherwise just AA twice and your fine.”
OmegaDelta000 says “Yorick himself is manageable, but you can't really do much about his split-pushing. If he brings out the mist maiden, then ult him to force a 1v1. You can also use your ult to avoid having to deal with his W.”
Nonoo says “why? well, yorick is capable of hitting you with his monsters, he can catch you and not be able to move (which I consider the worst thing that can happen to you with teemo), he has an ultimate which if you don't kill will do you more damage, and you don't have an ability of area that can kill those monsters, you will have to use your r to do it and they will still be alive, I recommend you play passive and do not let it CATCH YOU”
Raideru says “Yorick is a pretty easy matchup in early game since you counter his q, minion attacks and u can jump out of his cage however later in the game he will become more annoying cause all he does is perma split push so be sure to put him as behind as possible in early game.”
LeSocair says “Dodge his slow and avoid getting caught. It's all up to you not making any mistakes, if you don't, it'll be natural.
The best way to dodge his prison is to feint your escape route, or simply just walk back into him, he'll always put it just in front of you.”
AmericanNut says “A pretty strong pick only because of his Maiden, early he's got dust to throw at you, but try to kite it, and beat him down early. Once his Maiden is up and it scales, you won't eat him alone. ”
EU_Toxicity says “You're stronger than Yorick pre-6 by quite a bit so abuse that by keeping the wave on your side of the lane and zone him from minions, threaten to kill if he walks up. If you already have a few stacks on him and he traps you in his W - flash out of it, W him and chase him down with ghost (it's faster than using auto>W). if Yorick is far away enough from his tower ghost should be enough to catch up to him even if he has flash up. After level 6 he's stronger than you, especially if you didn't put him behind. Yorick's Maiden and Ghouls are his main source of damage so take care of them first before engaging on Yorick.”
iZeal says “Probably one of the hardest melee matchups Darius can face.
Save your W when he cages you to kill it and get a reduced cooldown as well as kill the ghouls with aa w resets.
Getting hit by E while Ghouls are alive means losing a lot of health and potentially having to flash as the W becomes all but guaranteed. Darius has trouble killing ghouls and the Maiden, however you will outscale Yorick much later into the game as he will lack penetration to keep his damage relevant.
DBlade, Tabis!, Phage”
MrMuckDuck says “Yorick is simple to face as long as you do NOT push a lot in early. Eventually, if you're standing back enough, Yorick will want to start pushing you since he will get tired of standing around.
He's going to trap you inside his wall etc, but with your E - you're good to go!”
TristanofJugdral says “You can't really all in Yorick because he's very tanky and will probably wait for you to use E so he can trap you in his ring and throw his annoying zombies at you. First can determine the lane. ”
AWierdShoe says “The biggest risk in this match-up is to get 100 to 0’d (or close to it) if you ever taunt in for a trade and then get boxed in when you try to back out. So never use the taunt aggressively unless he’s already in kill range OR you’re getting a gank. If he ever uses his E to poke you and misses, that’s when you can walk up to him and trade with short grasp Q’s (and keeping taunt for disengage if needed). He’s an easy gank if your jungler comes.”
TrinityForceYasuo says “Avoid getting hit by his E after level 3, try to kite him so he wont use too many Q's on you, they hurt a lot. His W is pretty useless with 1 dash you get away from it and the small zombies you can kill them with one AA. Freeze against him get nado EQ him knock up up AA and back off repeat that until he is able to get all-in/ed. Level 1 poke with Q when he goes for the minions to make it bit easier for the next levels ”
Saarlichenbog says “Yorick and Nasus are essentially the same. In a Yorick vs Kalista lane, the setup for ganks from Yorick's E which has a pretty slow cast time and the lockdown of his W which you can jump... over is the only way he win with no agency of his own outside his ult maiden which has an absurd CD for the stats it provides.”
ItsPaulygon says “You win all stages of the game against Yorick. Just be careful of his split push capability. He split pushes better than you. So even if you win lane, he can take objectives faster. So try to push towers more than him or try to predict where he is going to push. Yorick is pretty much useless if he can't split push towers.”
wolfclaw3812 says “Do not allow Yorick to play the game. If Yorick lands his mist and traps you in his cage, you are effectively dead.
Nothing is going to save you short of flash, and that might not be enough either.
Frostyfps says “
Start Q and stack your passive, generally a pretty easy lane but can be hard if you don't get an advantage before he hits level 6. I recommend getting executioners early as it will help you a lot when all inning him post 6. Should be a breeze since he is so easy to kill as Irelia before 6 but make sure to ALWAYS avoid getting hit by his E, its pretty slow and its necessary to dodge it after 6 if you want to win.”
Mordekaiserrrrrrr says “Yorick is a tough champ to go against if he lands his combos, but if he has no little minions, then fighting him will be in your favor, and ulting him will make him extremely weak. ”
TangoVallhala says “Tilting Match up again, just a good counter to Aatrox, try saving your E for his cage, avoid his other skill shots , play safe, Yorick can tower dive you at 6 though with maiden, so if you can make him waste his cage and try going all in with your R because that is the best opportunity you will get.”
qasddsa says “Annoying to lane against. Do not get trapped in his W and do not get hit by his E. If you do, you'll most likely get chunked for a lot of health or die. Once he has ult, he'll be mostly splitting and grouping once in a while with his team. You need to match him or group up with your team and take objectives. In most situations, you CANNOT 1v1 him unless you are extremely fed, he is extremely underfed, you play it perfectly, or he plays it badly.”
ERNESTSAURUS says “CONQUEROR / SPELLBOOK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT =
Yorick, similar to Cho'Gath, has lately been out of the toplane meta since he struggles to fight against the BORK + Black Cleaver Bruisers. In laning phase he will usually shove the wave so he can get some Mist Walkers to poke you so farm safely under torret, try to dodge his E so the Mist Walkers don't attack you. Once you hit lvl 6 and Sheen he can outplay you since he gets a lot of healing due to Conqueror, his Mist Walker and Maiden of the Mist, usually he will just trap you with W and let his Mist do damage, lookt to trade R's and try to kill Maiden first since it has a long cooldown than Nasus R plus Nasus builds a lot of CDR early on, and look to disengage and once you have your R back you can all in him. Later on to the game he can somewhat solo hold you and kite you decently so look to teamfight where he struggles the most and try to win 5v4 situations. The later the game goes, the more valuable Nasus becomes over Yorick since he will only use W on someone and then try to burst you. Remember you can stack his Mist Walker and Maiden of the Mist with Q.”
Grayified says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash or Ghost+Flash. Longsword refillable potion start. You want extended trades vs yorick, look to start every trade with an auto attack so you can save your spin to extend the trade. Yorick's wall has a 20 second cooldown level 1. Trades that yorick wants to take against you is ones where he can trap you in his wall and hit his e with ghouls up. Trades you want are ones that you are able to stick onto yorick even after he casts his wall (if you are able to save your spin to get out of his wall that is perfect.) Yorick is very strong at level 6 with his maiden up, but if you are able to kill his maiden or kill yorick his ultimate has a VERY long cooldown (160 seconds level 1.) The more yorick E's you can avoid in this lane to prevent his ghouls from harassing you, the higher chance you have of winning against him. In the mid-late game Tryndamere outscales Yorick heavily in the 1v1 as long as you can manage to stick to yorick. Critting yorick's wall reduces your spin cooldown. ”
Pyroen says “He has %hp damage and his box is very difficult to escape due to Swain's very slow auto attacks. Good news though, your ult is a little stronger against him than other champs due to the fact that you are absorbing HP from his minions as well!”
STIERNACKENTYP says “This guy is broken since preseason. Thx god he isnt popular since he is really strong. U dont have much attackspeed early so if he hits his cage + his E, he can easily 3/4 hp u, always. Try to dodge them and farm hard.”
Chili Dog says “Runes: Conq, Triumph, Bloodline, Last Stand + Magical Footwear, Cosmic insight or Transcendence, Gathering storm (if playing for late game).
Sub runes: CDR, Damage, Armor
Yorick is an annoying matchup, especially once he gets sheen, let alone tri force. You beat him early but in order to stay ahead of Yorick, you MUST know basic minion management. That's how Yorick gets ahead even though you killed him 3 times already. He builds up a huge wave from his tower combined with his ghouls and maiden and you cant trade with him unless you want to get half healthed by minions alone. Yoricks will typically split push all game, which gives you two options: 1. Match his split push and most likely lose. Or 2. Get other lanes ahead with you lead so you can deal with Yorick as a team. You can choose. ”
Swaim says “yorick+4 ghouls+maiden= unbeatable you will get melted down in an instant with his q and maiden try to fight when he doesnt have maiden or ghouls and early game without items you cant really beat him so not the easiest matchup but you are more useful on team fights than him.BE CARFUL OF HIS TOWER MENTILING CAPABILITY ”
HIGH TEST TOP88 says “You win before lvl 6, bully him and dont let him stack his Q for free and get ghouls. When he gets lvl 6, you need to kill his maiden before going for the allin, she is very strong.
wallobear53 says “Always keep a track of how many graves are around you in the lane. He can easily activate them and get some of his Ghouls to help you which will deal a lot of damage to you and will force you to recall abruptly if you’re careless in this lane.
Yorick’s E needs to be side-stepped when possible as it will not only slow you, but will also allow Yorick’s Ghouls to all-in you immediately, dealing a lot of damage to you.
Do not fight him while his Ultimate is up. Combined with his graves and his E slow, he will practically one-shot you from out of nowhere and then just push your lane in with his superior waveclear and push potential.
Fiora Pogjet says “A big pain in the eye with his Q and E Poke especially with his little monsters. You can trade him early lvl 2 / 3 but then he will get stronger. With his ult at lvl 6 he can just slow fight you and poke you down and you won't win trades. You have to try to go for an all in. Startwith corrupting potion.”
Teemain says “Yorick is just a better Garen, but with Ghouls.
Do NOT overestimate your damage output because trust me. You will get DESTROYED.
Either rely on your jungler to finish him up, or try to utilize your Q to get last hits and do NOT let him Q you.
His Q hits you HARDER than you can hit him.
Jebait his R and his Q AND his E and then maybe you can win this matchup.”

Stiwy says “So, your W counters half of his kit because it wipes out his ghouls and destroys his weird wall in less than a second.
He can only really kill you when his ult is up and the maiden targets you but, once the maiden is killed the cooldown of the ult is reaaaaly long and you have a lot of time to kill Yorick.
Start D.Blade for more aggression.”
BloodyDream81 says “Match up très compliqué, tu possèdes un avantage dans les 4/5 premiers niveaux, et tu dois essayer d'en abusé pour le tuer au moins une fois, afin d'avoir une phase de lane un peu plus simple, car une fois niveau 6, Yorick n'est pas du tout prenable en 1 vs 1 avec Darius, il te faudra demander l'aide de ton jungle, et essayer de lui refuser l'accès à des ressources au début de la game pour retarder sa puissance, car c'est l'un de meilleur splitpusher du jeu, et si tu ne peux pas le tenir en 1 vs 1, cela posera beaucoup de problème à ton équipe.
Soit vigilante de son E, qui t'appose une marque te faisant prendre l'aggro de ses goules, et don Z qui est un arène qu'il te faut détruire en utilisant 2 coups afin pouvoir en sortir.
Astuce : Prendre des tabi ninja et un anti heal rend la lane un peu plus abordable, mais n'essaie pas de le 1 vs 1 si il à son ultime de disponible. Si il ne là pas tu peux foncer sur lui c'est gratuit.”
CourtesyD0Prata says “By far the most annoying melee matchup, you don't realy trade with him if he has Randuin's. Watch out for his Ult, it deals a lot of damage long-term / De longe o matchup melee mais irritante, você realmente não troca com ele de Randuin's. Cuidado com sua ult, ela causa muito dano a longo prazo.”
Sq_09 says “His Golems are kind of annoying since they block your W but else he's fine as long as you don't (for some godforsaken reason) end up inside of his kage. Else you can kite and poke him pretty safely. ”
Beatport Expo says “You CANNOT fight against him. His Undead Minions is a threat to you when fighting against him and since you cannot deal more than 1 target at a time, you have a big disadvantage. Avoid fighting when he has his minions up or ultimate”
VIP Titan says “Yorick is late op champion with strong 6. So make sure harass as much you can do in early. He has got base low health stats so its worth harass in early.
Care his E Q Q combo.
Your attack speed should be cool against his W
When he got his R up. Make sure burst him up with your E
Max E not Q ! ”
Subject3 says “if your fighting yorick either try and get a kill or two prior lvl 3 or cower behind your minion wave dodging each of his ghoul baits he throws at ya.
get the kill lvl 1 or go home basically, and if you do try and kill him at lvl 3 and over and get walled then get ghoul jumped ahem... well you learned the hard way.”
Discord Rengar Mains says “His W wall is bugged up the ass and the moment he gets his core build he will wreck your shit because of his ult. He is very rarely picked however, and you can screw him up considerably early game. Pushing against him is hard however, and his late game pressure is hard to match. Bruiser builds work wonders here, specially sustain and aggresive, but do note that the moment he gets his full build 1v1 him is an ill-advised proposition. Ignite+Flash is good if you want to pressure him early, else Flash+TP. Conqueror or grasp can both work, but he is favored in prolonged trades, so keep a note on that.”
CounterBlad3 says “Yorick is extremely hard for Darius to trade with after level 6, since if he hits you with his mark and cage you will lose at least half your hp without even being in range to hit him”
Itreallyhim says “He will be super strong in lane and push like hes giving birth, Do short trades and try your best not to feed him.
You can remove his Ghouls, Maiden and W from the map with your ult.”
Nicklstherealone says “HE WILL HAVE A LITTLE BETTER CHANCES BECAUSE OF HIS BETTER WAVECLEAR BEFORE LVL 6 AND HIS CAGE THAT CAN GIVE HIM SOME TIME WHILE YOURE ULTING. TIP: ULT AFTER HE USED HIS CAGE OR YOU KNOW HE ISNT ABLE TO USE IT. ”
Loki029 says “Difficult to counterplay, use your AA reset to get his Cage down, if you build hybrit and you all in him at 6 you will mostly win if there are not 4 ghouls and the maiden around, don t Forget ignite and w before his q”
AkenoSenpai says “A pretty easy match up as his ghouls are helping you more then they are helping him. every ghoul dies to 1 Q which not only allows you to easly stuck up your passive but also heal up. ”
lugzinho says “And yet another matchup made better by the GW buff.
Abuse his pre-6 state.
Save your E to get out of an eventual cage.
With Conqueror and his Maiden he is still really good on damage and healing but if he gets pulled it gets better for Kled.”
Thr3shPrinc3 says “This matchup is completely determined by how good the Yorick is. If he is good with his champion rather consider him as a "major" threat, but if he is bad or new to the champion you can play against him as if he was a "minor" threat. Depending on how good you THINK he is you will be starting either Cull (if he is good) or Doran's Blade (if he is new or bad). This matchup will basically be a coin toss for you and there aren't any other tips I can give in this matchup apart from : Don't try and kill his ghouls with flay! It counts as an aoe ability and your auto attacks to enough damage to kill him anyways. You can cancel out the ghouls jump. . . But they will just jump towards you again afterwards. Yorick will be wanting to split push the entire game and late game you won't be able to stop him on your own.”
ForgottenProject says “You win level 1 trades if he does NOT have grasp
Dodge his E
If he hits his E you will take a bad trade no matter what
After 6, if he misses his E and you have a decent amount of HP you can kill his maiden and then all in him
He will mop you all game if you get behind, no stress :)”
Blakespeare says “Troubling match up if they play passive in lane and poke with e. They his w is super effective at trapping you. Your w can clear the gouls when you get poked. Dont engage when he has r. disarm w when in the yorick w. BRING CULL OR DORANS SHIELD”
Pedrokis says “É uma matchup estupidamente fácil, só que, como na matchup contra Nasus, você não pode deixar ele sozinho farmando lá no top que no late ele fica gigantesco. / Quase todas as trocas são suas. só toma cuidado com a Donzela da Névoa (R), que dá um dano chato e você nem percebe. / É necessário que você use seu E pra desviar do combo dele: pegar 4 Andarilhos da Névoa, tacar a parede do W em você e jogar o E.”
VicGal96 says “His W wall is bugged up the ass and the moment he gets his core build he will wreck your shit because of his ult. He is very rarely picked however, and you can screw him up considerably early game. Pushing against him is hard however, and his late game pressure is hard to match.

ozmankaan says “*preferred built: grasp of the undead* Yorick is doable, u can kill his minions by ur purge u can out damage him also, just conc on CS n regular AA on him n whenever u get ur chance go in with ur whole combo, n dont try to fight him with his ult on.”
BeautifulWinter says “His creeps block your E and he can trap you. This is a hard lane however despite it being hard you can still win this one. If you personally don't like him it might be a worthy dodge. ”
IvaoManeirao says “Impossible matchup, since you're gigantic you'll always get stuck on his W and it's impossible for him to miss his E. Either ban or take your chances since thank god his pickrate is low.”
Big Belly Bop says “He many not seem like a threat but this bad boy has hard push, and his W can counter Senna the hardest. Since Senna has low attack speed it will take longer for her to break the prison. Be very cautious and ask the jungler to shut him down. His damage is insane and your Q doesn't 1 shot his ghouls. Flash + TP, Doran's Shield, Sustain rune page.”
ExfIamed says “Its basically a stronger garen, you beat him in trades until level 6 so your best bet is killing him before 6, dodge the wall and w the slow. You cannot kill him if his ults up, so try and kill it or ask for jungle assistance or just take smite top.”
9690 says “Yorick is deceptively strong against Morde. This is ultimately a skill match up, we have to avoid his E or he can harass us out of lane. If we avoid E/ghoul toss we can out trade him. We win post 6.”
Quezel says “Your ult removes all of Yoricks ghouls and you heavily out damage him when he doesn't have them. Yorick is forced to rush qss in order to get his ghouls back and then he won't have enough combat stats to beat you 1v1 with his ghouls. Outscales you after level 16 but until then hes fairly easy to handle at all stages of the game. Still can fight you pre 6 though if he hits an e>w combo with 4 ghouls so be careful of that.”
mightydylan101 says “God this champ is annoying. He isn't played that much be he is being seen more recently. Make sure that you stay back as he can win trades and win late game. He will try and split push so beware of that.”
AlienMV says “Pay attention to how many graves are on the floor. He needs at least 3 to summon ghouls. Once you seem his summon animation (or if he has it already spawned), be ready to dodge his E.
He will generally constantly push in, so be prepared to CS under tower.”
NasusIsMyBoy says “Yorick is basically a reworked nasus with no stacks and super saiyan ult.
aggressive or not stay at tower as if he does attack he has a little circle thing that traps you and will stop you from being able to reach him and attack him”
New Swain New Main says “You can steal more hp from his minions and charge your ult faster. However his Q and minions will be dangerous. Additionally, Swain has a hard time auto attacking his box to escape.”
OneMustFall says “Once again you have the advantage early but you still have to very careful once he gets 6 as his minions can rip you apart if he catches you in his circle. If he starts snowballing, it's over for you as you won't be able to kill him.”
Kalrex says “Your hitbox is so big he'll never miss his E and he'll be able to trap you quite frequently. Popular ban pick, but his pick rate is already really low so up to you if you want to use your ban on him. ”
Hamstertamer says “Easy pre-6, you can destroy his wall instantly with your AA reset, and farm stacks off his ghouls or clear them with E. The real problem is his ultimate, which you have no way to deal with. If you see the maiden, RUN.”
Atlascrower says “I never see Yorick, but he can push against you early. If you get Sheen/Trinity, you should be able to defend easy with your Barrels(Except his Ghouls, they have an AoE-Damage-reduction. His W can be deadly for you(No Gapcloser). Dont fight him, he is one of the 1vs1 Gods.”
AsomeSonic says “slowly favors him over time, you can e out of his cage so he can't take advantage of you, i'm not sure if you can use his cage against him like jarven, your better in teamfights, to stop his splitting just focus on killing minions, warmogs helps or some health regen item like spirits visage(he can do a bit of magic damage)”
EpicDan01 says “When Yorick has his Maiden he is very difficult for Mundo to solo kill. Early lane he will beat you as well. Try to poke his Maiden down to kill it, then when you are at full health with your own R you can take him down. This is the only circumstance in which you can kill him.”
sir monsieur says “It's not like it's easy for Yorick to kill you, you just don't have enough waveclear to resist his ghouls. Most probably you will lose your tower soon if your jungler will not babysit you.
Read matchup details below.”
Poppu says “His Pre-6 is weakish, but once he gets maiden, he scales really hard into late and is hard to kill/stop. Would not suggest dueling after 6. Maiden is cancer, nerf maiden rito, her succ is too strong.”
oliveiragle says “yorick is a dificult match up because he have so damage and a good scale like you, and with enemy jungler camp you they will stop your stack power and destroyer towers ending your game e kill”
DrNaara says “He has %hp damage and his box is very difficult to escape due to Swain's very slow auto attacks. Good news though, your ult is a little stronger against him than other champs due to the fact that you are absorbing HP from his minions as well!”
Jnewbringspain says “Yorick is easy if you save Leap Strike and can avoid his Mourning Mist. Counter Strike works well against Last Rites, and you can jump away if you find yourself inside his Dark Procession.”
PandaSenpai101 says “Due to the recent buffs, he's a bit harder, but overall the matchup is simple. Go in for Q poke and vitals. If you plan to all in, remember that most Yorick players Q after you go in. So time your parry! His cage is really easy to get out of. ”
12inchpvpness says “Yorick will auto you and be ready to reset it with Q, when he does this use your W to block it and stun. When he turns level 6 he is a THREAT, if you underestimate him and get locked in his cage you will die no contest. When maiden is out and about she is a priority target, ping your team on her and you need to take her out as well.”
PogLord says “ULTIMATE STEAL SCORE: 3/5
FF At 15.
Nah, btw he has these ghouls. If you see 3 on the ground, NEVER enter trades. The ghouls are immune to AOE damage, so your Q sucks, better hit them one by one.
If he slows you, you can E spellshield away.
Very-very though if Yorick knows how to play. However you can das through his W, so that's a plus.
If the player is not a decent or good yorick player, you should be FINE though, but don't go too cocky with trades.”
0mega best says “He is strong, but you can bait him, just dont get caught in his W and kill his minions as quick as possible, besides that, he is a ok matchup but dont 1v1 him without the help of your jungle.”
Lil Tidepod says “Yorick can be pretty tough. The damage he can do is pretty insane, not only on his Q but also with The Maiden and his mist walkers. If you can, dodge his ability that calls The Maiden and his mist walkers onto you. It will make him significantly weaker in a fight. They will chase you to the ends of Summoner's Rift in an attempt to kill you. The Maiden got a significant buff, now that it can stay in lane and push without Yorick. Be careful if he stops pushing, he might be trying to play a trick and use The Maiden to push while team fighting.”
ImpossibleLogic says “As long as you don't get poke'd down by his little devils and you wait until he uses his W till you E then you will have no problem just going all in on him and just killing him. When his ult is up try not to get poked by it, it wont stop you from killing him and him killing you if you decide to all in so just wait don't get poked and just all in him.”
LighterDay says “The wall Yorick creates makes it hard to get close to with your W and Q. Illaoi's W makes it easier to escape this wall if a minion or the enemy is close by, so keep W ready just in case.”
DrMoneybags says “He used to be a bit tough to deal with but then he got nerfed pretty hard for no real reason. Shouldn't be a hard lane for the most part, just dodge out of his E and W and kill him early. ”
OnionMilkshake says “as long as you dont get poke'd down by his little devils and you wait until he uses his W till you E then you will have no problem just going all in on him and just killing him.
when his ult is up try not to get poked by it it wont stop you from killing him and him killing you if you decide to all in so just wait don't get poked and just all in him
Zdenster says “Take Arcane Comet. 3 points into W. Rush Tiamat. Dodge his Es when his Ghouls are up. Don't get caught in his W if you don't have E. Matchup is easier once you have Tri-Force and lvl 6.”
TheNinjaRoid says “If Yorick is good, you'll lose lane quickly. He can't stop you from farming outside of straight up bullying you out of lane. You'll outscale him hard as long as you don't feed early.”
TheBoltLord says “Yorick i personally cant handle because of the fact he slows and traps you. Once your trapped you have to either flash out auto attack the wall while hes shreding your health with his creeps or use your E most likely on minnions TOWARDS him. With the creeps he spawns your W blocks them but it has such a high cooldown. You could attack the minnions but by the time your done your health is low. So either be good at dodging his abilitys or insta ban this man.”
Nio161 says “He builds tank what means you can only oneshot him with your ult, but moves very slow so it should be easy to hit your E and deny his farm. Just dont get caught while you ult, then he can walk away and you wasted it.”
The Lost Drawing says “Aunque no lo creas le haces 'counter' y no 1 sino 2.
>>> El 1°; en su 'W' puedes salir de ella con tu 'E' tirandosela a el o a un súbdito
>>> El 2°; en su 'E', si te llega a golpear con tu 'W' te quitas el daño de sus zombies aunque te siguen pegando, asi que solo retrocede”
ElleryTheViking says “I'm gonna be honest, I still haven't quite worked this matchup out yet. He seems pretty invincible. If you try run him down he traps you and you cant catch him. A sure way to win generally is to dodge the ability that throws his Minions at you and all in while his ult is down. Outside of that, you can always call for ganks.”
Samas says “Using your Q aggressively might lead you to him putting you in a cage and trading all he wants. Save your Q, walk up to him try to parry his Q with your E and chunk him, then get out or continue the fight depending on the situation. Keeping the wave in the middle of lane might be beneficial to you since you should have how to escape after your aggressive trades”
E61K says “Almost nobody but players who either main Yorick or main Darius know about this counter.His cage, ghouls, sustain and general tankiness due to the items he likes to build makes him very hard to deal with on your own as Darius post-6. You have to get ahead early to win this one. Pre-6 to be exact. Yorick can run you over even when both of you are even. Provided he hits his stuff. Post-6 when he has his ghouls and you get trapped in his cage and he hurls his ghouls at you, you either flash out or you die. Simple as that. The most important thing in this match-up is to not get trapped into his cage and then targeted by his ghouls. If you can avoid his cage and force a fight on him you, you can win. To add even more salt to injury Yorick deals a pretty decent amount of magic damage. So don't just stack armor against him. You need MR against him or else he will melt you. Luckily they are like 10 Yorick players in the world so the likelihood of you bumping into one is extremely low.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Split-pushing, 1v1, sustain damage. Weaknesses: Low Mobility, Weak early game if played incorrectly. His damage with his Mist Walkers can do a lot early game and can be a bit surprising but as long as you avoid his E, you should be fine. you can easily escape his ring that he might try to place around you and he has no real escapes so performing your ultimate on him should be easy. Do not mistake his weaker earlier game for him having a weak late game because he can split push just as good as you and duel you if he has enough ghouls by his side. Go for Q-pokes early on while dodging his E’s and Riposte either his E once he’s used his Ultimate or one of his Q’s so that it negates the damage and slows down his attack speed.”
Miracle Matter says “Ah, Yorick...Yorick is a strange matchup. He is rated highly (a 7) because if he ever lands a single E, then he can trap you in his wall and 100-0 you before you can break the wall and escape. You can Ulti to survive post-6, but you'll often die upon revival anyway.
That said, he's a large, immobile target, so if you dodge his E/W, you can simply slow him and stun him, pelting him with bombs repeatedly.
Highly recommend the Tanky Alternative build for this matchup. Just focus on dodging his skillshots and out-shoving him if possible. Don't leave your tower for long or you may lose it.”
Suthafru says “Yorick - surprisingly, yorick is a good matchup for jhin, while yoricks wall can mean death if you're caught in it, as long as you can avoid the wall, you can out poke him and prevent him from farming easily, securing an early game lead that will protect you from his post level 6 fighting capabilities ”
Saiyan02 says “Just don´t fight him when his Ghouls are out and you´ll be fine. you can E out of his Wall and R away his R so there´s not much problems with him. But you still gotta respect Yorick he´s strong”
drunken hunter says “Yorik is a strong enemy, he got autohit resets that heal him, he can make a circular wall of spirits to keep you in place and his ult deals -Ranged!- dmg per second.
Try the early kill, you wont have many chances to get him.”
kkiskk says “His main source of threat is his E and maiden of mist. He basically can burst anyone down after he get any sheen items and his maiden of mist proc. Always dodge his E so his mist walkers can't get to ridiculously jump on you. Get executioner's calling asap.”
TheNecromancerr says “You are much more stronger then him early. PLay super aggro, you can oneshot his Guls with your Q. Later on he is strong split pusher and don't fight him if his ult is up - NEVER.”
Proxxecube says “Since his harsh nerfs in the last patch, 8.23, he hasn't been showing up much. If he is in your game, walk around constantly to avoid his pocket-sand, and go in when you have tiamat, as it will be significantly easier to fight off the minions. He is relatively tanky, so just parry him at the beginning of the all in to lower his attack speed, and your damage and sustain will do the rest. As for the Maiden, let him push up to turret, then start fighting it. If he tries to defend it, he will get turret aggro. ”
Zahkar00 says “Take Grasp.
With Bravado you can deal with most of his stuff fairly easily. Just be careful what your priorities are at the time. If you dont focus the right thing at the right time you will be punished for it.”
E61K says “Yasuo is considered to be a counter to Yorick, which is true. It depends on how good either of both players are though. I would rate this matchup lower but considering the fact that Yorick is strong with the new runes I decided to rate this matchup 5. You can use his ghouls to dash and you can dash out of his circle thingy. Given that there is something nearby to dash to, that is. ”
Omega best says “Yorick is easy, just attack him and flip him in your minion wave and he is dead, only thing is not to be caught with his little monsters and avoid being trapped. Play safe, build armor and kill him before he gets ultimate and dont attack him while he has his ult or he will kill you, stop him from splitpushing and call for ganks, use ignite.”
L4stG4mer says “You should start with a lot of potions and possibly crystalline flask to sustain the first few levels.
Do not attack the Wrong Yorick, youre poison will focus the fake Yorick if you pick the wrong. Also place Shrooms Out of lane, otherwise his ghosts will tank them.
Kite his ghouls and use brushes to loose their aggro. If you harass him, do it a lot so he can't just sustain it back up.”
Mouadyam says “Yup, Yorick is extreme, his ghouls are annoying as they cant be killed with one q, you have to manually auto them, and his wall denies you from getting the long trades you want. try to kill him early as he will probs just have a corrupting pot, and if you roam dont take too long as he will be at your damn inhib by then. play it slow and smart and you'll evenetually prevail, dont rush and die to minions and ghouls like an idiot.”
Demon Lord AC0 says “I Gotta thank this gravedigger for putting me on gold. You can counter him, just DO NOT underestimate his damage while he's ulted. Windwall his E if it's going to hit. Also, don't leave him solo in lane, or he's going to push for your inhib.”
Rading says “No chance to kill him with your traps due to his little ghosts that activate your traps everytime. you can q out of his cage tho but thats all you can do. So just wait for his ghosts to die and built traps arround the bushes and wait for the right moment to engage.”
Skullsunderer says “Yorick is a special case. He needs to farm to get his ghouls and when/if he does don't spin to kill them, focus Yorick. His Maiden should however be dealt with first, stop her from damaging you or pushing. When he traps stop trying to kill him. Without is ghouls have his kit is useless. Fight him after he Qs to kill a minion so his damage is on cool down.”
joelblack says “Yorick is pretty difficult, no lie. You can get some poke on him, but if he catches you, he can ruin your day. Keeping your distance and saving your E when it's absolutely necessary will be the way to kill him. His wall thing is pretty easy to avoid, but if you get caught, only jump out if you need to. Being in his wall is a double-edged sword for him tho, because he has to literally run at you to do damage, letting you get a few W procs off, and if he's low enough and you saved your hop, you can chase him down and kill him. Just don't be stupid and you'll win.”
DuhBrandon says “If you fight Yorick and you know what your doing this will be a very easy game. as an Akali main I have never fed or lost lane to a Yorick. He has little to no resistance early game and most Yoricks will underestimate your damage and overestimate their own damage.
So if you fight a Yorick you should be able to crush him and be too powerful for him to catch up.
