How to play:
Pyke is an assassin support. He’s played a little differently from the traditional supports that you might be used to playing. Pyke’s strength is around his playmaking potential, roaming capabilities and sharing gold with the rest of his team. He’s one of the best roaming supports in the game as he has the ability to roam really easily and dodge around vision with his stealth from Ghostwater Dive, and he can also lock down enemies with his Bone Skewer and stun from Phantom Undertow combo.
(Passive) Gift of the Drowned Ones
Pyke stores a percentage of damage taken from champions. The amount of damage stored is increased if there are two or more visible enemy champions nearby.
When Pyke is not visible to enemies, he heals for the amount of damage stored. This can be triggered by walking into a bush (if there is no ward in there) or using Ghostwater Dive.
Also, Pyke cannot increase his max health, but instead converts bonus health to attack damage.
(Skill 1) Bone Skewer
Charging Bone Skewer slows Pyke for a few seconds, increasing the cast range over the next second. When you release Bone Skewer, Pyke throws his spear, dealing physical damage, slowing the target and pulling it in.
You can also just tap Bone Skewer which will cause Pyke to just thrust his spear instead and it deals the same amount of damage. If Bone Skewer is charged for too long, it will stop and it refunds a portion of its cooldown and half of its mana cost.
(Skill 2) Ghostwater Dive
Pyke becomes camouflaged for a few seconds and gains movement speed that decays over the duration. Camouflage hides Pyke from view while enemies remain outside his immediate area. Attacking or casting spells will immediately end the camouflage.
Ghostwater Dive is one of the reasons why Pyke is so good at roaming and engaging around the map, but you can also use this for quick disengage to heal back up from his passive.
When using Ghostwater Dive, be careful for control wards as they can reveal Pyke when he is camouflaged.
(Skill 3) Phantom Undertow
Pyke dashes, leaving behind a phantom. After a second the phantom returns to Pyke, dealing physical damage to enemy champions and stunning them for just over a second.
This will be your main engage tool after coming out of Ghostwater Dive or landing your Bone Skewer, but it can also be used as an escape tool as you can get over many walls on the map. You can use Flash after activating Phantom Undertow to increase the phantom pathing range.
(Ultimate) Death From Below
Pyke strikes in an X-Shaped area, executing enemy champions below a certain amount of health. Champions above the threshold take half of the amount as physical damage. When a champion dies in the X, Pyke can recast Death from Below within the next few seconds.
There is a little indicator on the champion health bars – when the outer line turns red, that means they are in execute range, but be careful because enemies can still dash or flash out as it is a skill shot.
Each execution grants gold to Pyke and the last assisting ally, and an enemy champion killed inside the X by an ally grants Pyke gold.
