Guide to Synergizing Malphite and Yorick

Tips for Playing as Malphite with Yorick

Armor naturally reduces the rate that attacks go through Granite Shield, so Brutal Strikes will strengthen the shield against physical damage.

Despite his abilities scaling on Armor, some games require Malphite to get Magic Resist. When those games occur, try getting Aegis of the Legion, Mercury's Treads, and Guardian Angel.

Advice to Understand How Yorick Will Play

You do not need to cast Awakening to regain the ability to cast Last Rites.

The Maiden will attempt to assist you in a fight, so choose your targets well.

You can send the Maiden down a lane alone, be careful though, as she represents a large portion of your combat power.
