Most League of Legends players say that support is the most boring role in the game. No one can blame them because it is the support's job to protect his allies, roam, and ward around the map. They do not deal massive damage like the carries of the team. However, Pyke is one of the champions that can carry games. If you want to main the bloodharbor ripper, follow this guide that teaches his runes, spells, and items in League of Legends.

Heal



The next summoner spell that Pyke should have is ignite because it gives a greater chance to assassinate champions that are caught by the bloodharbor ripper. These two summoner spells are the ones that you should use in all of your games!

Best Pyke Ability Order

Thankfully, Pyke's skill order is really easy to remember. First, you have to focus on leveling up Pyke's bone skewer because it will give more damage and have a lesser cooldown as the level up the ability rises. Next, you should focus on phantom undertow because of the same reason as bone skewer. Follow the skill order seen below to become the best Pyke support in the game.

Best Pyke Items

If you are a support main, it might be hard to itemize Pyke because of his uniqueness. Since he is more of an assassin, the best items for him are those that give huge physical damage. Managing League of Legends items for him will be harder because of this sole reason. Nevertheless, playing Pyke will become easier as long as you follow the recommended items below!

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.

Refillable Potion

Oracle Lens

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.

Second Item

Third Item

Fourth Item

Boots of Mobility

Umbral Glaive

Control Ward

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.
