Introduction

First off, my name is Kynes and I play support, mainly Pyke, on the OCE server. I've been playing since Pyke's release in 2018. I don't play Ranked often because of schoolwork, but I was Gold in Season 2021. I am currently sitting at 370K points on Pyke.

Why play Pyke?

Pyke is a very interesting and unique support that can provide so much for the team in ways other supports cannot. This man can straight-up print gold. He can steal kills without getting flamed. You'll love him if you like playing aggressively in lane.

Because he is such a special snowflake, there are multiple ways you can play him, depending on the matchup and team composition.

Pros

  • Very strong during early/mid game
  • Great engage potential and peel
  • Powerful sustain
  • Speedy roams
  • High mobility
  • Good cleanup
  • Manipulates vision well

Cons

  • Cannot gain additional health; super squishy
  • Weak late game
  • Weak against tankier champions

Runes

Pyke will normally take Hail of Blades against most matchups, but he can also bring Glacial Augment against certain matchups with high damage. Predator can also be fun as it helps with roams and landing CC.

Summoner Spells

Always Ignite and Flash. Ignite helps with securing executes with Pyke's Death From Below (R). The DoT and Grievous Wounds are very helpful for this. Flash is a must, as it opens up fresh, new combos with Pyke's Q, E, and even R.

    Skill Path

    Pyke will always upgrade his abilities in this order, no matter what matchup he is against.

    Item Builds

    Pyke has a lot of options to choose from, in regards to itemization. He is not too reliant on buying his Mythic items, which means that he can adapt very well to all sorts of different situations. You may sometimes find yourself going Maw of Malmortius first item or even Death's Dance.

    With his Glacial Augment build, even going Mikael's Blessing is an option if the situation requires it. If you have Prowler's Claw, you can take advantage of its Mythic passive ( +5 Lethality per Legendary item) to build items that give no Lethality at all. This helps as his abilities scale with Lethality.

    That's all folks! And remember, the pink chroma increases your win rate (proven)!
