Depends, if you're going offtank, then I go Mekai Pendant>Boots>Tear of the Godess>Spirit Visage>Manamune, then generally situational items. Warmogs+Atmas usually help out a lot.

Yorick has a strong early game with his 2 ranged pokes. 1 is AD scaling and both summon ghouls which are AD-based. He has good health sustain, but needs mana.

Meki+2pots is an option, as is boots+3 depending on enemy.

Mid to endgame, he wants:
CDR to spam ghouls and slow/speedup.
AD since all scales off of it.
survival. no gapcloser nothing. He needs to be a tanky blob.
Mana - he never really outgrows his mana need.

He doenst really need:
AS, crit - ghouls dont use it so its suboptimal.

As such, most take a TEAR asap then upgrade to Manamune. This gives a midgame lull but his lanign is good enuf to handle it.

A chalice is tempting but he STILL runs OOM because his mana puddle is so shallow. He needs a bigger pool to be useful in combat.

Frozen Heart is typical for him for big armor, mo mana, big CDR.
I like ionic boots on him to max his CDR for more spam. Not very useful early on though without tear.
Negatron to Banshee is strong. more mana to feed manamune, health, MR.
Hexdrinker is good too if you have another health source.
Sp visage is good if yuou dont want ionic boots. Get CDR, MR, health.
Warmog gives you the huge health that boosts your effective health with your high resist items.
triforce is a great endgame item as he triggers the dmg proc very easily once CDR maxed. he needs the utility from movespeed,etc.

Against HEAVY AP/CC

Boots/3hp pots -> tear/ward/pots-> merc thread/ward/pots -> manumane/ward -> start working on triforce probally start the ap/mana item than grab phage -> GA -> last whisper/thirster -> more defense (depending on enemy)

Against HEAVY AD BURST/SUSTAIN
Boots/3hp pots -> dorans shield x2 -> merc thread/ward/pots -> manumane/ward -> start working on triforce probally start the ap/mana item than grab phage -> GA -> last whisper/thirster -> more defense (depending on enemy)
