The most underwhelming champion for too long, Yorick’s getting a hefty rework next patch!Our zombie user, gravedigger champ is becoming shepherf of souls with a huge difference in his kit. Currently meta isn’t about mobility but mostly raw power, especially in Solo Queue, so we think Yorick will be a major champion depending on the numbers of his kit. He will be mainly played in Top and Jungle but his kit might make him a decentish support as well(similar to Trundle) depending on the numbers.
Lets take a look at his new skill kit;
PASSIVE: SHEPHERD OF SOULS
Yorick can have up to four Mist Walkers in his service at once. Mist Walkers decay if they move too far from either Yorick or the Maiden of the Mist. A grave is occasionally created when enemy minions or neutral monsters die near Yorick, and all enemy champions that die near him leave a grave.
Q: LAST RITES AND AWAKENING
Yorick’s next basic attack deals bonus damage and restores some health. If Last Rites kills a target, it creates a grave. If there are at least three graves nearby and Last Rites is on cooldown, Yorick can instead cast Awakening to raise Mist Walkers from the graves.
W: DARK PROCESSION
Yorick summons a destructible wall of corpses that encircles a target area for a few seconds.
E: MOURNING MIST
Yorick hurls a globule of Mist that deals magic damage, applies a slow, and marks a target. Yorick and Mist Walkers get a movement bonus when heading toward marked targets.
R: EULOGY OF THE ISLES
Yorick summons the Maiden of the Mist (at higher ranks, she’ll bring some Mist Walkers with her). The Maiden moves and attacks on her own. When Yorick attacks the Maiden’s target, he’ll deal bonus magic damage based on the enemy’s maximum health.
Yorick and Maiden of the Mist can spawn four Mist Walkers each. The main theme of the champion will obviously be these Mist Walkers. Mist walkers will be spawning from the graves of minions and champions.
When you last hit with Q, it will create a grave and restore some health. If at least 3 graves are up and your Q is on cooldown, you will be able to use it to call the Mist Walkers from their graves.
His W skill is crazy powerful. Similar effect of Jarvan Ult (without DEMACIA!) but its breakable with damage. Still it will be very effective for both ganks and team fights.
E skill will slow the enemies, deal magic damage and give movement speed to Mist Walkers.
Eulogy of the Isles (his ult) will summon the Maiden of the Mist. The maiden is going to attack on her own and if you attack the same target with her you’re going to bonus magic damage based on enemy’s max health. You will also be able to split push two lanes at once using her and teleporting to another lane yourself.
