So I've solo top'd against a Yorick a few times, and I've had a lot of trouble with his ghosts.

I'm not really sure what kind of damage his ghosts do (heard two of the ghosts don't scale off of AP, not sure), so could anyone please tell me which boots (merc treads or ninja tabi) would minimize his harass the most?

I mainly play yorick but i never really took a good look at ghoul's damage output... but you want to have a lot of potions and call for ganks, dont trade hit for hit with him. abuse him when hes low on mana and try to last hit as much as possible while staying out of his range

Ghouls do 33% of Yoricks damage, but attack at a flat .665 attack speed. They last for 5 seconds, becoming weaker healthwise over time. They also make Yorick himself deal 5% more autoattack damage and 5% less damage taken.

You should always run from the ghouls when they are cast on you as a ghoul will get in 3 attacks, which is equal to eating 1 autoattack from Yorick himself...per ghoul.

A smart Yorick will drop both his AoE slow AND his lifestealing on you at once. Since you are slowed, you will eat all 6 attacks from the ghouls which does hurt...when added to the nuke damage already. However, this does get mana-intensive.

Melee is difficult because he will drop all 3 ghouls, nuke you hard, get 15% DR and dmg bonus and they will beat you down.


A simple trick is to be really close to the woods. When he nukes you, step into the brush and the ghouls will go attack creeps and push the lane a bit.
This gives you a chance to sustain his relatively weak nukes, if you are able to negate the ghoul damage.

Playing a high sustain champ like Garen or Cho or Xin is also very helpful in this regard, as is making sure to take say boots and 3 pots, or regrowth and pot. Don't take a dorans blade for example, or something with low sustain.

They do basic attack damage equal to a percent of Yorick's, but his Omen of Famine deals magic damage when it arrives

His other two ghouls I'm pretty sure deal physical damage on arrival

I had to make a post. Q and E from yorick are based off of his ad ratios with ap on his W, BUT....all of the ghouls dmg output is magic! So only yoricks auto attacks are weakened by increased armor while increased mr decreases dmg received from his ghouls.

Ghouls have 35% of his AD which means he can have up to 205% of his AD attacking you at once. His ghoul's health are also 35% of his.
