Hello Armies! Welcome to another League of Legends Champion Spotlight. And today we will feature the first assassin support that Riot Games added to League of Legends. Pyke!
Pyke is a support champion that can be used for mid lane and top lane. The mid lane Pyke builds can be integrated for the top lane as well. Pyke is a fun and unique assassin. He can buy assassin gear, which allows him to kill people. He can even get a coveted pentakill, which is very unusual for a support.
His Q ability is a harpoon. You can tap the button to make Pyke sweep the harpoon in front of him, slowing enemies it hits, or you can hold the button down and then release it to throw the harpoon in a straight line. If it hits an enemy, Pyke pulls them towards him. This isn’t a revolutionary mechanic; both Thresh and Blitzcrank have long-range grabs that displace opponents.
Pyke’s E causes him to dash forward, leaving behind a phantom version of himself. After a short delay, the phantom travels to Pyke’s current location and, if it passes through any players, they take damage and are briefly stunned. He can combo this ability with his Q to hook an opponent out of position and then dash through them, blocking off their escape and hopefully stunning them.
Pyke’s W allows him to dive into “spectral waters,” because he is a pirate ghost. This gives him camouflage, making him harder to detect, and increases his movement speed. Pyke can use this ability to reposition himself, to chase down a fleeing opponent or to escape.
These basic abilities aren’t unusual, but Pyke’s passive and his ultimate are unique, especially for someone playing a support role. Pyke’s passive has an upside and a downside: He can quickly heal a portion of the damage that he has taken, provided he can escape the enemy’s view. This could be done by either backing away outside their line of sight or hiding in a bush.
The bad news is that Pyke cannot gain bonus health from masteries or items. Items that have bonus health will convert to bonus damage if you purchase them. This is not a very favorable ratio. This means that you can’t buy these items while you play Pyke. You won’t be able to make him a tanky disruptor like his hook-wielding peers Thresh or Blitzcrank.
The Best Pyke Counter Picks in League of Legends are Janna, Sion and Sona. While he is strong against Zoe, Xerath and Annie. While it might not look like it, Pyke is one of League of Legends’ most trusted support champions. Pyke is a melee champion so you need to be in close enough to do damage. Even if he makes a mistake and gets into trouble, there are multiple ways he can escape.
