Guide to Playing Yorick Mid

Below is a guide on how to play Yorick Mid. We'll talk about how to play him, the rune set up, the item build, how Yorick Mid works, the drawbacks of Yorick Mid and how to counter it.

Here's a pick that's unorthodox, but quite good against a number of champions and performs surprisingly well for destroying turrets and maintaining map control for his team. He's tough to kill and can't be left alone for very long. If you're not used to seeing him (as most mid-laners aren't), he also deals an insane amount of burst damage that can catch players by surprise.

Check out the details below!

Rune Setup




How It Works

Powerful Tower Destruction Ability
Yorick's ability to decimate towers is exceedingly high, especially once he hits level six. When you combine this with the Demolish rune you get a champion that can't be left alone for more than a few seconds at time unless you like losing turrets.

Insane Sustain

Yorick's built-in sustain combined with a blue buff donation mid-lane means forcing him out is essentially impossible. When you add this to his bulk this makes him an immovable force that can't be bullied. Eventually the enemy mid will have to go back to base and eventually that tower will rapidly fall.

Good Against Melee Assassins
Yorick's damage mostly relies on his auto-attack reset. This means that sneaky champions like Zed and Fizz won't be able to dodge the majority of his damage. This allows him to bully enemies into submission simply through dealing more damage and shrugging off any poke he receives.

Potential Pitfalls

Weak Gap Closer
Yorick's kit needs room to run in order to truly run down targets. Although he can do this to enemy junglers in the river, most ranged champions can safely avoid dying to Yorick in lane. They can get heavily bullied and sent home, but actually dying is somewhat unlikely.

Weak Poke Damage
Using Yorick in the mid lane takes away the main source of poke damage on your team. While most teams can still work without poke, they'll want to make up for it in other lanes in order to alleviate this weakness.

Countering Yorick Mid

Countering Yorick Mid generally entails a champion that can both run through his defenses and also provide stronger team presence late game such as Pantheon. Meanwhile, players will generally want to avoid champions that run low on mana quickly as Yorick will likely be packing Corrupting Potion for sustain.

Conclusions

Yorick Mid is a pick that can do incredibly well against a variety of champions and can cause some incredible chaos in a game simply by being an unignorable force. If you get ahead you'll also get a lot of "what the heck just hit me" when you smack them in the face with your empowered Q.

Suggested Tier: Tier 2
