A week after League of Legends Italia teased Yorick’s new champion model; Surrenderat20.net has finally revealed him and his new skill kit. Unlike his old one, his skills now focus on split-pushing through the help of his ghouls: the Mist Walkers and the Maiden of Mist.
To get a better idea of his rework, here is his new set of skills as released by Riot:
SHEPHERD OF SOULS
Yorick can summon up to four Mist Walkers to aid him at once. These Mist walkers will perish if they move too far from Yorick or the Maiden of the Mist. These ghouls appear when enemy minions or neutral monsters die near Yorick.
LAST RITES AND AWAKENING
Yorick’s next basic attack can deal bonus damage and restore some health. Last Rites will leave a grave if it kills an enemy or minion. If there are three or more graves nearby, and Last Rites is on cooldown, Yorick can instead cast Awakening to summon Mist Walkers from the graves.
Yorick creates a wall of corpses around a target area for a few seconds. Allies can walk through this wall freely.
Yorick throws a globule of Mist to the target and deals magic damage. It also slows the enemy and marks it. Yorick and his Mist Walkers will get a movement bonus when heading towards the marked target.
EULOGY OF THE ISLES
Yorick summons the Maiden of the Mist and two Mist Walkers to aid Yorick. The Maiden of Mist will attack and move on her own, and can raise Mist Walkers from nearby enemy deaths. When Yorick attacks the Maiden’s target, he will deal bonus damage based on the enemy’s maximum health.
RioT had admitted that Yorick is the least-played champ out of the 131 champions in the League. However, with this new update, RioT’s been looking forward to introducing the new Yorick to the public. The champion will also have a new backstory to get in line with the game’s lore.
Yorick’s champion update is set to be released during the 6.18 PBE Cycle. So get your gaming computer ready and keep your Garena and League of Legends updated.
