Renekton good vs Yorick?

I hear this sometimes, what's the logic behind it? Problem is Yorick can start harassing me right from the get-go but I have to wait till lvl 3 to do real damage to him, especially if he's smart and starts cloth + pots. By that time he's usually taken my hp low enough that going in on him is too risky.

I know to dash into the bushes to de-aggro the ghouls but that doesn't stop the on-cast damage.

Don't know, I don't see how that'd be true, I think he's one of those champions that arent great vs yorick, but have the ability to survive his laning phase.

nope: yorick doesn't have a straight up hard counter at all, the closest thing i can think of is maybe Urgot or Riven

Eve is good against Yorick. 50% less damage from ghouls OP.

LOL.

Trundle, Cho'Gath and Renekton all hard counter him.

Trundle / Cho'Gath sustain off his ghouls and out push him / outpower.
Renekton can crush him levels 1-4 then dominate lane from there.

you can say the same thing about nunu but the fact is yorick can insta spam ghouls, the harass from a distance is much more then the sustain you gain from it.(Cho'gath) besides cho isn't a "hard counter" besides what sort of build would you use against yorick? /on-hit/as?.

Trundle is very comp specific so i can't knowingly include him despite the fact that he does do well against Yorick.

hard counter means the lane is 100% one sided

trundle and cho are both just who can farm better since trundle and cho heal so much from creeps dying, although early game you can zone out a cho if you play aggressively enough

renekton does decent against yorick with dash q dash but yorick can normally heal a good chunk of that back before renektons cds are up, after 6 though yoricks ulti>renektons from what I've played
