Summoner Sets

Ghost & Ignite
Ghost is more useful than Flash for GP. Ignite is essential.
Flash & Ignite
This set is good against champions where you would be advantaged by dodging/escaping their powerful skills e.g. Jarvan IV.

Skills

Grog Soaked Blade
GP’s passive skill. Maximum stack of 3 plus slowing.
Parrrley
Not affected by blind.
Being an on-hit skill, all of the following applies to this skill : Grog soaked blade, Spell blade (Sheen, Trinity force, Lich Bane,Iceborn Gauntlet), Cleave (Tiamet & Hydra), Statikk Shiv, Frozen Mallet
Remove Scurvy
You’ll completely free yourself from all of the following effects[피해를 주는 것들은 안풀림]
(ex. ignite, 티모 독 및 버섯의 독, 케이틀린 덫 피해, 등)

1.All
Stun, Silenc, Slow, blind, Fear, polymorph(lulu W), 공격속도감소, Suppression(Skarner ult), snare

2.Partially
Warwick ult, Malzahar ult : 범위에서 벗어나기 전에 피해는 계속 들어옴
Air-borne : you can do everything except moving
Charm (Ahri’s E) : 매혹은 풀리지만 피해량 증가는 계속 남아있음
Exhaust : 공격속도,이동속도 감소만 풀리고 피해량 감소는 남아있음.
Urgot ult : suppression removed but still changes positions
fizz ult : removes slow only
Vi ult : Half-way through her ult when you’re air-borne, you can do everything except moving) Make sure you time it to air-borne

However, you’ll NOT free yourself at all from
Zed ult, Vladi ult, Morde ult, Karthus ult
Raise Morale
when you use this, you’ll reveal yourself to any enemy within the range of this skill for about 4 sec.
Cannon Barrage
This skill is the reason why GP exists. In lane u can support other lanes and in teamfights, area slow + damage puts enemy team into deep pressure. After learning this skill at 6, check on other lanes frequently.

Check out the teammate's portraits which i marked with red box. If the health bar of one of them decreases sharply, move your screen to that lane and ult. Very, very important key while doing this is space bar. After using ult at other lanes press space bar to immediately turn the screen to your champ.

Champion Matchups

Aatrox
Difficulty
Favors You
Try not to fight him head-on at lvl 1 but do so at lvl 2. Watch-out for his passive then you’ll be okay. Even if you get hit by his air-borne, just use your orange and fight him. Remember your orange enables you to use all your skill + attack even during air-borne. When you get more items, you can deny him outright.
Akali
Difficulty
Favors You
First item should be hexdrinker. Try to deny her farm before she hits 6 and never fight her when she uses shrouds. After she hits 6, manage your HP well and do not give her any kills because she can snowball off that easily. Most important item here is pink ward.
Chogath
Difficulty
Favors You
It will be a hard match-up unless your jungler camps top. Don’t bother harassing him much in the early game. When you know your jungler’s coming, harass him with your auto attack and Q then kill him with your jungler. After Cho hits 6, just hug your tower and farm up.
Darius
Difficulty
Favors You
You actually have a few chance to kill him before 6. Before 6, his Q doesn’t hurt as much so you can out-trade him. But after he hits 6 he could kill you even if u have half of hp left. After you get the statik shiv try to Q him often. If laning phase is getting hard just take as much cs as possible. Darius’s Q deals more damage the further you are from his spinning range so try to stay close to him when trading.
Elise
Difficulty
Favors You
Watch out for her spider Q and keep farming. If laning phase is hard, take 3 oranges first. Elise will constantly harass you with neurotoxin but don’t use your orange so soon. Use it when you hit below half-hp or when she engages you with her spider form.
Fiora
Difficulty
Favors You
GP beginners find her difficult. It may seem so because her skill, Riposte, will reflect both your auto attack and Q damage. However, we can use this to our advantage i.e. make her “waste” Riposte, and beat her. First of all, don’t use Q as your harass. Shoot your Q to a creep that’s right next to Fiora and she’ll use Riposte thinking that was aimed at her. Then that’s when you can trade with her.
Fizz
Difficulty
Favors You
Either get Negatron Cloak or hexdrinker as first item then you’ll beat him.
Garen
Difficulty
Favors You
His E crits which makes him harder to trade with. You always have to keep in mind the damage of Garen’s ult when trading. Since Garen’s ult depends on your lost hp and deals magic damage, it’s better to get health than armour. When trading, fall back when garen charges with Q and use only your Q keep him at bay. Unless garen already used his E it’ll be hard to trade with him with auto attack so use as much Q as possible.
Hecarim
Difficulty
Favors You
Never fight him when he uses Spirit of dread. Unless Hecarim charges at you first with Devastating Charge, try not to trade him with auto attack and use Q as much as possible do reduce his HP. With your mouse, click on Hecarim and check if he has 2 stacks on Rampage. If he does, don’t trade with him until he has used them up. 2 stacks Rampage means the cooldown is only 2 sec so you can only lose by trading.

Finally, beware of his combo : E->Ult->auto attack + Q. You might actually beat him.
Irelia
Difficulty
Favors You
it is good to pull the lane toward you. Get Bilgewater cutlass as your first item. Try not to trade hits and farm up. Support bot lanes with ult.
Jarvaniv
Difficulty
Favors You
his passive will deal percentage based damage depending on your current HP and Dragon Strike will reduce your armour by percentages. AND his Demacian Standard increases his attack speed and armour which make him a difficult opponent for GP. Nonethess, not impossible with your lane sustainability of orange and Parrrley harass. Just watch out for his full combo and you’ll hold just fine.
Jax
Difficulty
Favors You
Against jax take W instead Q in lv1. Jax usually gets E for he’s lv1 so its better to use W to get the stun off of you. Jax is weaker than gangplank before 6 so try to harass him as much as possible before 6. After jax hits 6 watch out for he’s ult passive (third strike) and stay out of jax’s E range at all time and start trading when E is out.
Jayce
Difficulty
Favors You
starting item is Doran shield. Dodge his cannon E+Q blast and you’ll win.
Kayle
Difficulty
Favors You
Just keep farming and start trading with Q after getting Sheen. Lane phase against Kayle isn’t that hard so just farm up and stop him from roaming with adequate lane control.
Kennen
Difficulty
Favors You
Kennen trades with AA stack and passive from W and when u go up to him to trade he runs away with E, therefore it’s impossible to get near him. So only think you can do is to sustain as long as possible and get assists with your ult from other lanes. And try to push out the lane if you can to stop him from roaming.
Khazix
Difficulty
Favors You
Due to he’s buff on Q and R he’s hard to lane against. Past kha lived off of poking so it wasn’t hard to out trade him but after the Q buff that has changed. Be aggressive till kha hits 6 and after 6 just be defensive. Item wise try to rush sunfire cape.
Leesin
Difficulty
Favors You
You will win as long as you dodge his Q. If he slows you with E, use orange.
Lulu
Difficulty
Favors You
You can’t win, period. Just swap with bot lane if they let you. Impossible match-up.
Malphite
Difficulty
Favors You
If his Q hurts, take 3 lvls of orange and just farm. If malphite is going tanky, a solo kill by him isn’t too bad but if he is getting damage, u cannot afford to give him a kill. When he has teleport push out the lane and if he has ignite pull the lane towards you and make sure you ward your lane.
Masteryi
Difficulty
Favors You
Swap with bot lane which can screw him up pretty badly.
Nasus
Difficulty
Favors You
Nasus’s influence in the game highly depends on your team’s champion combinations. If Nasus starts with a Doran shield, forget about getting a solo kill but try to reduce his HP before your jungler’s first gank attempt. Unless you pull your lane towards your tower, Nasus will pretty much free-farm during the entire game.
Nidalee
Difficulty
Favors You
heavily depends on how good your opponent is. Even though you may lose a couple of cs, it’s better to pull the lane towards your tower. Laning phase is going to be a pain in the ass but try to protect your first tower as long as you can. If your cs isn’t too far from hers, you might even be at an advantage during a team fight.
Nunu
Difficulty
Favors You
Forget about getting a solo kill. Keep farming since you have a better chance during a teamfight.
Pantheon
Difficulty
Favors You
2 different types of Pantheon: those who masters Heartseeker Strike and others who masters Spear Shot. If he’s maxing Spear Shot, you can beat him easily with my main skill order. Against those who masters Heartseeker Strike, if he stuns you with Aegis of Zeonia, free yourself with your orange and attack him from his flank where you can dodge most of his damage output from subsequent Heartseeker Strike.
Poppy
Difficulty
Favors You
Poppy isn’t really that hard. Every time she tries to get a creep, harass her and push the lane. As your first item, get Spirit of the Elder Lizard since its Incinerating fixed damage over time ignores Poppy’s OP passive. Just harass her every time she tries to get a creep and you might even send her back to base. The goal is to deny her in laning phase so she’s less potent during a team fight.
Quinn
Difficulty
Favors You
Try to swap with bot lane if you can. If not, just concentrating on farming till you get Sheen.
Renekton
Difficulty
Favors You
when he approaches you with Slice and Dice and stuns you, use orange to free yourself and attempt to trade hits with him.
Rengar
Difficulty
Favors You
you should win this without much difficulty. Harass him as much as you can before he gets his full stack.
Riven
Difficulty
Favors You
She’s somewhat known as GP’s hard counter. You can’t undo the air-borne from Broken Wing’s 3rd strike and her shield can block your Q’s damage to a degree. Nevertheless, try to harass her with Q and trade damage when her Broken Wing is on cooldown. You might even win.
Rumble
Difficulty
Favors You
Get Spectre’s Cowl as your first item, and then get a Giant’s Belt. Buying Sheen comes next. You’re green to trade when Rumble’s heat gauge indicates white, not yellow. One thing to note is to use your orange after the 2nd slow from harpoon, not the first. When fighting him head-on after hitting lvl 6, try to move behind him while hitting to reduce damage from his flamespitter and the Equaliser.
Ryze
Difficulty
Favors You
Use bushes to make him harder to use Q on you during laning phase and concentrate on farming until you get Statikk Shiv. After that, start trading with him. Use orange to ignore Ryze’s rooting and keep farming.
Shen
Difficulty
Favors You
Ideally you would want your lane warded properly and to push his lane so that he has think twice before using his ult but we know that’s difficult. Use bushes and Q as much as you can to farm and do your best to get away from his Vorpal blade range. He’ll harass you with Vorpal Blade enough so that he can use Shadow Dash and kill you. If Shen’s using his ult within your reach, keep hitting him then follow up with your ult to wherever lane he went to. I recommend Blade of the Ruined King as your first item.
Shyvana
Difficulty
Favors You
The only time you can beat her is when you are both lvl 1. Otherwise, it’s almost impossible. Try to swap with bot lane if you can. Rush Trinity force.
Singed
Difficulty
Favors You
When Singed tries to farm, harass him with your auto attack + Q. A good first item to get is Bilgewater’s cutlass. Farm without much ado but harass him with your auto attack + Q. Never trade when Singed has his ult on, and concentrate on farming. In order to reduce his dominance during a team fight, you must either get Iceborn Gauntley or Frozen Mallet. Another lazy way is to swap with bot lane.
Sion
Difficulty
Favors You
Try to swap with bot lane if it’s AD Sion. A Difficult match-up. If it’s AP Sion, hug your tower and farm.
Teemo
Difficulty
Favors You
Very difficult to beat him in lane. Swap with bot lane if possible.
Udyr
Difficulty
Favors You
Either swap with bot lane or be aggressive only until about lvl 1~2 then play safe. Harass him with Q and concentrate on farming.
Vayne
Difficulty
Favors You
Either swap with bot lane or farm safely until you get a Sheen to poke her only with Q.
Vi
Difficulty
Favors You
Rushing Ninja Tabi is a good idea. Don’t trade with her until she’s used up her E on minions. Try to maintain your lane somewhere halfway so that she doesn’t roam freely.
Vladimir
Difficulty
Favors You
Try swapping with bot lane. If not, get Phage as your first item. Kill a minion with your Q to gain movement speed which will enable you to get up close to him and use auto attack + Q to trade.
Volibear
Difficulty
Favors You
Never trade when Volibear uses ult. Watch out for his full combo. Look toward the late game where you would do just fine.
Warwick
Difficulty
Favors You
Just rush Chalice of Harmony and concentrate on farming. Support other lane with your ult and sustain as long as you can with your orange. An important thing to note is when your HP’s low enough for him to engage with his ult, stay out of his ult range. If he does use ult on you, use orange and get out of his ult range, otherwise you’ll receive full damage despite being able to move.
Wukong
Difficulty
Favors You
He’s a strong champion in the early game and very good at team fighting in the late game. It’s okay to fight him head-on at lvl 1 but let’s not do that at lvl 2. Wukong’s lvl 2 is very strong so stay back and concentrate on getting your minions. Manage your HP so that he doesn’t one-combo you. If Wukong comes in with Nimbus Strike, don’t just back away but use auto-attack + Q before backing. Lastly, try not to be the first to go in and deal damage.
Xinzhao
Difficulty
Favors You
Let’s just hug tower and concentrate on farming. If he charges you with Audacious Charge and use Three Talon Strike, use Orange at his 3rd strike when you are air-borne. Remember, you can attack + use skill even during air-borne after using orange.
Yorick
Difficulty
Favors You
We know he deals magic damage based on his AD scale. Get Spectre’s Cowl first and then get Sheen. Just play safe while concentrating on farming. If he summons one of his Ghouls, get into a bush and shake it off. Use your ult as much as can for bot lane and help them carry the game since Yorick’s not much of a threat during a team fight if their damage dealers are poorly farmed.
Zac
Difficulty
Favors You
he is such an annoying champion. A solo kill may be difficult. His Stretching Strike’s range is same as GP’s Q so watch out for that. Maintain your lane at about halfway so he doesn’t go roaming freely.

Teamfights

Gangplank’s play style is like Hit and Run like a Mid AP champion.

Tip

Movement skill : moving shoot

Important

Like I said in skills section, space bar is very, very important key in playing GP. Always remember to press it after using ult in other lanes to put the screen back to yourself asap.

Conclusion

Thanks for watching my guide. i hope you will win with gangplank.
