Since the date of appearing in League of LegendsPyke has always been a popular support champion. The main reason is Pyke You can freely kill the network instead of the team because of the ability to “hack money” with your ultimate. However, in addition to support, mid lane Pyke is also an extremely strong general that can “crush” the challenge rank.
Here’s how to play Pyke at Challenging level:
Guide to play Pyke by DongHuaP and Davemon
First of all, when talking about Pyke, this champion has the ability to snowball the top lane in the middle, because when Pyke has a kills with his ultimate, Pyke will have 600 gold, if there are teammates, the number will be up to 900. Especially, whether Pyke is Riot Games Designed to be a support champion, Pyke still has the ability to control the map very powerful compared to assassins like Zed or Talon.
Davemon – one of the world-famous Pyke players shares how to use his ultimate as follows: Because Pyke’s ultimate has an X-shaped effect range, sometimes opponents can easily dodge. But try to imagine Pyke’s ultimate as 4 legs, the opponent only needs to touch 1 to reach the table to count.
The opponent doesn’t need to hit the center of the X, so there are some prey when you see Pyke using his ultimate will Speed Back, the trick here is that you will use the final move with the mouse pointer pointed behind your back. opponents a bit. This will cause Pyke’s ultimate to hit the target whether the target has Sped or not.
As for Pyke mid, this champion will definitely be a physical damage killer (STVL). And like many assassins of other STVL, Pyke is also short-handed and easily poked, blocked by long-sleeved champions. Pyke also has difficulty clearing soldiers, but at least you won’t lose too many soldiers on the way. The trick to making Pyke stronger from the start is the Raining Sword.
At level 1, Pyke just need to use Bone Stab (Q) to hit and take advantage of the entire basic attack of the Rain Sword is already a lot of profit. If you do not raise Q, you can use Ghost Water to stunning enemies and use the same strategy. This trick can beat most mid lane champions in the current meta, except for some specific champions like Akali or Diana, you can ban these champions for … safety.
As mentioned, Pyke is a very bad soldier, but you should not be too worried if you take advantage of this weakness of Pyke. When the opponent pushes the soldier close to the tower and has a Pyke blood structure, you can drag the opponent straight to the tower and stun. This combo, if not defeated, also causes the opponent to lose a lot of health or Speed.
Pyke heals up to 400 health in just 10 seconds
Next, about Pyke’s resilience and the passive of the Gift of the Dead. Many people choose to go out of sight of enemies and use all gray health into blood as soon as possible. But in order to recover the massive amount of health at this stage, Pyke will need 2 items: Doran Shield and the Second Wind + Relay. With the ability to recover his percentage of missing health, Pyke can wait for his health to increase again before using his internal healing. With this towering tip, sometimes Pyke can turn the tables around with only a few hundred health points.
Next is Pyke’s trick to roam without a counterattack. Usually when you leave the middle line, the opponent will ping continuously and report the position and direction you move. With Scum Diving (W), Pyke can fool enemies easily. Pyke, for example, intentionally moves downward on the enemy’s line of sight, immediately following Invisibility (Camouflage) with W and back to roam the top lane.
As a result, the top lane of the enemy team was extremely comfortable because they thought Pyke had come to the bottom, Pyke appeared suddenly and took a simple kill. This strategy will be even more effective if your jungler goes ganking.
But playing Pyke is as risky as many assassins, because if you give way too much Pyke will be ahead in level even if Pyke has more money than your opponents thanks to the kills. At the same time, Pyke is also very fragile, and this champion will be very weak, only increase the maximum health thanks to the level up. This is why you need to snowball early and support your teammates as much as possible.
In addition, the late game phase is also relatively “difficult” for Pyke because the opponent will now have the equipment to break the Pyke ultimate chain like Giap Angel, Hourglass. So at this point, you need to be patient and wait for the right opportunity to rush in.
At this time, Pyke is also very dependent on his scissors. Because Pyke needs to pull at the opponent’s main force and knock them out, if he misses, Pyke should retreat and wait for another one.
Finally, the equipment and the pearl table are suitable for mid Pyke:
