so, how will Omen of Death interact with Zil's ult, Guardian Angel and Anivia's passive?

So Yorick's ult is a reverse-Morde ult?

Still nice though. Day 1 purchase

Greeting Summoners!

We wanted to give a sneak-peak into Yorick’s gameplay in a quick mini-update.

Yorick is our first champion that utilizes the creation and use of summoned minions. All of Yorick’s spells have varying immediate effects, but each leaves behind a different minion of the appropriate type. For example, Omen of Pestilence creates an AOE explosion at the target location that does damage and slows, and leaves behind a Decaying Ghoul. This ghoul will then slow targets adjacent to it during its lifespan. All Ghouls have a constantly draining life bar that limits their lifespan to a short duration, and enemies attacking them will shorten it even more.

Yorick isn’t some frail, weak Necromancer that just commands minions though – he’s a burly fighter who can dish out punishment on his own. This was done primarily to make his play more consistent (as frail summoners typically have really binary PvP gameplay on if their minions are up or not). Yorick can get into a fight and go toe-to-toe with enemies while commanding an ever-changing army of undead Ghouls.

Omen of Death is his trademark ultimate that brings players back from the dead to exact Vengeance. Yorick can use this Omen on an ally, which creates a revenant of that champion. If that champion is killed while the revenant exists, then the target gains temporary undeath, coming back from the dead at full life which drains on its own rapidly. After the risen ally runs out of health again, they collapse once more.

We really hope you enjoy our new master of undeath in the upcoming patch!


i thought his ult was a lined nuke where bone hands came from the ground and snared anyone in the path... I dont know if I like this ult in the description. ill have to see it in action before I decide.

That ult is basically Morde's ult, except on an ally

Mordekaiser won't be too happy, he got his ult ripped-off there. (Can't forget Zilean though) Can't wait for more details though!
