Welcome to my guide, I am Duckie I am a Pyke OTP and I am here to teach you how to play Pyke
I am a support main that has been playing League for around 8 years now and in those 8 years I only played on the EUNE server and my rank is at the moment gold 3 but last season I was platinum 3.
I have chosen Pyke because I have been playing him since the day he was released and since then I mostly only played Pyke and I have a lot of knowledge about this champion, his combos and his potential.
Pyke's cons is that he can one shot the squishy supports with only Duskblade early game but not the midlaners because most of the mythic items give them around 400HP which can make them look tanky for Pyke's potential. With Pyke you can snowball your lead sience you have the ablity to DOUBLE the ammount of gold you can get from one fight. Pyke can roam quite fast sience his W gives him 40% movement speed and mobies give 140 movement speed. You usually want to roam when your adc pushes the wave and you can't kill the enemy bot. At level 2 is your biggest power spike when you reach level 2 you should walk up and try hooking the enemy into you and landing the stun.The cons of pyke is that he is very squishy and he can easliy get oneshotted by most of the midlaners and carrying junglers like Master yi, Viego, Shaco. Another weakness of his is whenever his W or E are on cooldown he is easy to catch, so becareful when you use them.
The first page that you see everyone goes and it is good, but I prefer the second one because I always end up using all of my mana and 90% of the champions that are in meta right now have a way to CC you.

Summoner Spells (Loadout)
I recommend Flash with Ignite most of the games, BUT if they have a lot of burst you could also take Exhaust
The standard Skill Path for Pyke is to max Q into E into W, but if you want to go more for the roams you could also go Q into W into E.

The usual build for Pyke is the AD support item Duskblade Mobies Umbral Yomuu and I personally like Vigilant Wardstone because warding as a suppose is KEY for you to win a lot of games. If they have a lot of CC you could opt in for Mercury instead of Mobies. If the enemy team drafts a lot of AD you could also pick yourself Death's Dance/Dead Man's Plate and if they have a lot of AP you should opt in for a Maw of Malmortius
