Gangplank is a fighting champion. He has a weak start to the game, but during the course of the game, his power increases considerably. Gangplank has a mechanic that can deal a lot of area damage to your opponents. Additionally, he has a global map presence thanks to his ultimate ability. Typically, this champion is used in the top lane.

Champion Description

“As unexpected as he is brutal, the self-styled King of Thieves known as Gangplank is feared across the seas. He once reigned in the port city of Bilgewater, and although his reign is over, there are those who believe it has only made him more dangerous. Gangplank would rather see Bilgewater bathed in blood once more than let someone else control it. And now, armed with pistol, saber and kegs of powder, he is determined to take back what he lost.”

Gankplank Abilities

(Passive) Judgment of Fire: Periodically, Gangplank's melee attack will set his enemy on fire.

(Q) Business: Fires at the target, looting gold for each unit kill.

(W) Remove Scurvy: Eat citrus fruit to heal crowd control effects and restore Health.

(E) Powder Keg: Gangplank places a Powder Keg at the target location. It will explode if attacked, dealing damage to enemies in the area and slowing their Movement Speed.

(R) Cannon Dam: Gangplank signals your ship to bomb an area, damaging and slowing enemies.

Gangplank Tips and Tricks

  • Create a chain with your powder kegs and destroy the first keg with (Q) Negotiarr to reach distant enemies.
  • Your Trinity Force gives you movement speed every time you kill a unit. A barrel is a unit, use it to evade or reach an enemy.
  • On your lane, place a barrel in a bush to surprise your enemies with a chain that starts from it.
  • Only you and your opponents can hit the barrels. You can quickly reduce the barrel's lifespan to 1HP by tapping it once it appears.
  • If you place 2 barrels of gunpowder, it is possible to detonate the first and place a third that will explode in strides to surprise your opponents.
  • More complicated to master, the Phantom Keg consists of placing 1 Powder Keg, blasting it with (Q)Negorrr at its maximum range, to place a second Powder Keg that will explode almost instantly.
