Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is among the most mechanically sound role-playing games released in recent times, thanks to its amazing battle and customization systems that allow players to come up with a variety of viable builds.
The huge character variety also helps quite a bit, as the six playable Champions are all very unique, and good at playing specific roles in combat.
Here’s everything you need to know to use Pyke properly in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.
How to Use Pyke in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story
Pyke is a very unique Champion in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, and one that could be defined as a saboteur, as his ability set is clearly geared towards applying altered status to enemies while dealing tons of damage.
Pyke’s signature ability is Stealth, which makes it impossible for enemies to target him. This is extremely important for the character, as he has very low health and defense, and thus he is usually the first one to go down if enemies launch an offensive. Stealth also powers up the Ambush lane ability, Pyke’s strongest single-target ability.
As already mentioned, Pyke is great at weakening the enemy before finishing it off. He can apply Sunder and Magic Sunder with Mark Target, Riptide with Phantom Undertow and a few others once his abilities have been powered up. In addition, the Instant ability Serrated Slice can apply a random debuff on any enemy, so even the regular attack can weaken enemies considerably. As such, Pyke works great as a support character as well, aiding other offense-oriented characters like Miss Fortune and Yasuo greatly.
Below, you will find all the abilities Pyke learns in the game.
|Serrated Slice (Instant)||Deals low damage and applies a random debuff.|
