Pyke is going to look for chances to fight early on, his Bone Skewer
slows and can pull enemies in. Stand behind the minion wave so he cannot easily pull you in.
Usually getting an auto or two on the enemy Support is good, but doing that to Pyke has lackluster results as he can heal some of the damage back with his Passive. With that said, do auto him whenever you can to assert lane dominance.
Watch for Pyke when he uses his Ghostwater Dive
, he’s either looking to pressure or going to roam without you knowing. Take note of your champions feet to see if Pyke is still nearby. If the visual is gone- he’s out of the vicinity.
Stay behind minions! Pyke
cannot go through minions so just being behind them will keep you safe from it.
Warding lane bushes can stop Pyke from regenerating his health via his Passive. Try to keep it warded and if he steps out of vision- use that time to poke the enemy ADC.
can single-handedly win a teamfight. Save your Flash or your mobility spell just for that moment.
Being an engage/kill Support, Pyke spikes at level 2 when he has his Bone Skewer
and Phantom Undertow
. This gives him a lot of CC that he can use to secure an early kill. Level up at the same time to reduce his all in potential.
At level 6, Pyke gains access to Death from Below
. This ability will skyrocket his kill potential both in and out of lane since it executes anyone below 25% health. It does have a rather long cooldown, so look to fight and trade blows when it is on cooldown.
Once Pyke buys Boots of Mobility or Youmuu’s Ghostblade, he will be able to get around the map fast and will look to roam. Once Pyke leaves, ping missing and be prepared to follow him if you can. If not, look to abuse his ADC while he’s gone.
