Best Early Game Pyke Items
First, you should always start with a support item to generate gold even when you are not getting cs. Steel shoulderguards is the best support item for Pyke because it gives him durability and sustain in the early game.
Also, do not forget both the health potion and sweeping lens for sustain and ward clearing respectively.
Best Mid Game Pyke Items
Pyke is one of the champions that can roam and have a huge impact all around the map, so finishing mobility boots first is always the way to go. Next, you get to choose from one of the multitudes of mythic items available in the game, but the duskblade of draktharr is the best because of the burst damage that it provides.
Boots of Mobility
After finishing both of these items, you should decide what the next legendary item that you should add to your inventory is and buy cheaper items from it. However, most high elo Pyke players buy umbral glaive to clear wards easily.
Best Late Game Pyke Items
These items will give the most damage, ability haste, and roaming prowess to Pyke, enabling him to kill all visible enemy champions nearby. Pyke follows the usual assassin build, and it is not a flexible inventory, so remembering these items should be easy and manageable.
