If you're building Crit GP, the only source of damage you can actually use is your Q.

Because you're in melee with an IE and a PD and then you die.

you dont go in first, you arent the tank, but stay closer to the edge of team fights, and you're great for chasing people down too.

also, I go in melee like that in anything less than 4v4 teamfight (say 3v3), im coming out with 1 kill and and 2assists at least.

maybe you just dont get fed well enough.

Critplank is best plank.

Go phantom dancer, then build triforce with starting with zeal, then pick up and infinity edge.

Yayyy...

I tried this out in a couple games... It's absolutely terrible lol. You can't farm outside of parrrlay. You can't dmg outside of parrrlay (a bit more on ult, eh... w/e). You have almost no auto attack dmg. You can't tank. It's fun to heal for massive amounts, but it's nothing more than a niche/fun build. Parrrlay's with ad do waaay more dmg and you can melee/tank. There's no sustained dmg with ap.

Smart players will just switch focus to you when you get in range.

Dude, this is a really OLD post. Plz stop necroing ancient stuff to add your 2 cents. Everything has changed now.

The main change that killed this is that Parley now does PHYSICAL DAMAGE. Before it actually did magical of all things, making magic penetration affect parley, the lichbane addition, as well as his Ult.

GP also tended to hide in the back and hope for a big crit. This approach let him hide in the back and deal pretty solid reliable damage, boosted his Ult like crazy, and let him heal to full with 1 orange.

But yeah, nowdays it SUCKS heinously due to the new metagame, solo top, and GP was reworked to be a real tanky DPS instead of a hide-in-the-back guy.
