How it works

  1. You go Full Crit items.
  2. You go in and play around Hail of Blades to burst enemies.
  3. You back away and wait for Hail of Blades. Repeat.

How to play

  1. This build shines with 100% crit. You will instakill squishes. Until that, it might be challenging to 100-0 anyone. Look for opportunities to go in and score kills. Also focus on farming minions if possible (to scale faster).
  2. Wait for your moment to go for a kill. You have big burst thanks to Full Crit and Hail of Blades, but you are squishy. And outside of Hail of Blades procs (especially early game) you don't have much damage.
  3. Snowball / Mark is very important cooldown for this build. Do not waste it or even wait to hit the enemy at point-blank range to ensure hit (so you follow them, if they Flash).
  4. Enemy team might not check your items right away, you could use that for your advantage to nuke unsuspected enemy.
  5. This build works best if enemy team has squishy champions. If you are against a lot off-tanks/bruisers, this might not be best build.
  6. If you are not doing well, or an enemy team is slightly ahead, you can adapt and buy tank items. Worst case scenario, you can sell everything late game and 'respec' into full tank.

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.
