How it works

  1. You rush Hextech Rocketbelt #1, Liandry's Torment #2.
  2. You get Cosmic Insight rune to use Hextech Rocketbelt more often.
  3. You poke with Hextech Rocketbelt and First Strike to earn gold and burn enemies.
  4. After core items, you adapt. You can play as a tank or as a damage dealer.

How to play

  1. Use Hextech Rocketbelt active to poke your enemies all the time, earning gold with First Strike.
  2. Adapt to the enemy team. Build tanky or more damage. You can play as a utility tank, poke, or even you can go some AD items to still have plenty of damage. Depends on the team and how you want to play.
  3. For utility tank, remember that Liandry's Torment works good with Serpent's Fang (to counter shields) and Oblivion Orb (to counter healing).
  4. Cosmic Insight reduces cooldown of all active items, so Zhonya's Hourglass really works well with this build.
  5. Wait for the First Strike and proc it with your combo, to deal damage and earn gold.
  6. Be careful to not get poked, because you waste First Strike procs.
  7. Your main combo is First Strike + Hextech Rocketbelt + depending on situation - use Q+E, Q, or E, followed up by your R.
  8. Your alternate combo just for poke is First Strike + Hextech Rocketbelt + Q

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Pyke is very fragile so don't be afraid to temporarily run from a fight. You can regenerate a significant amount of health from Gift of the Drowned Ones when enemies can't see you.
  2. Hitting an enemy with the Hold version of Bone Skewer will always pull them the same distance. Use it in melee range to throw targets behind you.
  3. The Tap version of Bone Skewer is much faster and deals additional damage.
  4. A lot of your agressive spells are also your escapes. Make sure you always have a plan to get out of the fight.
