Its called catalyst peopel it builds into DA BEST ITEM EVA too, you really dont need the mana besides the lane phase and itemizing to laning is a bad policy.

manamune on a meleecarry is an absolute no-go, y would u want to spend 2k gold on an item that offers u 0 survivability which u desperatly need as a melee? lets assume u got like manamune and boots till ur first clash, inthat clash u'll run around with like 1,2k hp, no lifesteal,no bonus armor or mres (except from mercs maybe)

1,2k hp on a melee without cc-reduction skills, without spellblock, without ANY protection....at that time annie deals about 1,3-1,5k dmg burst...guess i don't really have to tell u that that wont work out too well ^^ it's pretty much the same as with yi and tryn, both maybe viable against nabs but too easily counterd elo 1,5k and above.

You miss the most important point here. That 2k along with some cdr translates into non stop lifesteal, speed and slow.
Yorick needs to spam his stuff in order to survive and to stay close to targets, running out of mana as Yorick is about as fatal as it is for a caster. Also once you start building tanky stuff, manamune will provide free damage from banshees and Glacial Shroud.

From the last couple games i played, all i can say is that Yorick feels extremely strong right now. He has Sustainability combined with a ranged harass, quite a lot of free damage and an ultimate that can be used in over 9000 different ways.

Why does everyone think you need to spam mana on yorick?

The recent changes make mana effectively unneeded. Build some actual defenses and offenses instead.

Exactly.. you didn't need mana items pre-patch, either.

Max W and E first, get dmg and lifesteal and Yorick is a beast.

No offense that sounds like a terrible build for Yorick.

I've found that Aegis of the Legion adds to Yorick's survivability like crazy.

You dont need Manamune or any pure mana items. As said above, get Catalyst, then build it into Banshee's Veil. That's all the mana you need.

the problem with yorik is not that he is a bad concept or done wrong, but its that most of the ad champs who have there abilities scale off from ad have that one ability that is at a 120% of ad or 165%. were as yorik only has his 100% of his ad or ad added... if his q had a more proper scale then he could be seen as good champion.
