Best Overall Build


Intro

Hello! My name is Maxime. If you are here, you're interested in murder your ennemies and win as soon as possible with THE best champion to master as a support. To make this guide, I followed some of the best Pykes worldwide, from pro-players to top players. There is plenty of Pyke guides that you can watch on YouTube, or else, but here's mine with the most actual build(s).

Huge Hylissang game with Pyke facing a main Thresh

Runes

These are the best runes setup you can get for Pyke in S12. Hail of Blades: Best rune for Pyke, short early trades or just simple one-shot potential in mid / late-game. Cheap Shot: This rune is a must-have for Pyke since your E stun ennemies (can multiple stun with extended or well-placed E) Zombie Ward: Very underrated rune that you can abuse especially with Lethality Supports (even some other supports). Ultimate Hunter: Since Pyke is a VERY mobile champion, you can get those 5/5 stacks on your Ultimate Hunter before 10/12 minutes.

Biscuits Delivery: I don't need to explain this one, just take it, a must-have for mana champions. Time-Warp Tonic: Since Pyke can trade or kill very early, this with the 2 potions that you get level 1 can make your win your fights without dying. Use them in trades, let your W carry your HP while you don't fight. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Approach Velocity: Can be useful while you are playing with Ashe or a carry that can slow ennemies.

You can take 2 armor stacks depending on your match-up, instead of 2 adaptive force.

  • with Ashe / champions that slow
  • Safe Runes


Summoner Spells

Here is the recommanded, and the only summoner spells you should take with Pyke, both have an undeniable place in Pyke's kit.

  • Summs (Role 1)

Skill Path

You can even take E level 1 if you can pull a good multi-ennemies stun. Consider leveling your lvl 1 spell when you are sure about it.

Item Builds

Concerning boots, if you're against a good slower team, you can go for Swiftness Boots, if you're not, just go for Mobility Boots. Your first item should always be Umbral Glaive since you have the Zombie Ward rune, stack it as much as possible, as soon as possible. Depending on the game, you can go either Prowler's Claw or Draktharr, if you think your job is to get the right target than probably die, go for Prowler's Claw. If you're job is to execute them all, go for Draktharr to sneak between your R's. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- After those 3 core items, you will need some more lethality. A bunch of items are here for Pyke, you just need to adapt. Edge of Night: If a must-have if you are facing a good hard-cc ennemy (Lux, Thresh, Blitzcrank...) take it almost every game. Youmuu's Ghostblade: You don't really need others item ? Just go for Youmuu's, good lethality pull and active. Axiom Arc: The last lethality choice that you can get if you're ahead in the game, a really cool item passive. Chempunk Chainsword: Facing a lot of healing ennemies, Yuumi on a Yasuo ? Just take this and try to one shot him with your mates. Guardian Angel: Cool item that is made with Stopwatch, a really helpful item on Pyke since you can just all your spells to kill someone, stopwatch then wait for your cds being invincible, same for the Guardian Angel passive which makes ennemy wait for 4 seconds here.
