Just picked up Yorick. I've always known him to be an obnoxious tanky character, but with the S3 changes and what not, I feel like I'm just as obnoxious and easy to use as Garen when I play him.
Obviously Yorick doesnt' have the burst of garen (ie his ult) or a silence but he does some pretty solid sustained damage and has a very useful ult for team fighting.
Is Yorick just a "under the radar" champion or have I not played him enough to see why he's not a popular pick for the current meta?
No he's just not a super duper hard scaling god that other top lanes are.
He's sorta a boring, stalemate top that's meant to keep the other guy from farming and just make him miserable.
ya hes a spy
yorick is the only really strong lane bully in the game that isn't played just because of how boring he is. normally people will jump on whatever champion is strongest, except yorick
His strongest ability is nearly entirely reliant on your team's ADC to be strong.
But yeah, he's a wall with 20% damage reduction slapped onto him in team fights.
Everyone knows Yorick is a strong lane bully, but nobody plays him because he's so boring.
