So you want to recruit Pyke the Bloodripper in ruined king? I don't blame you, he's a ferocious champion capable of devastating destruction. At the start of the game, when you play as Illaoi, you seek out Pyke and test his mettle against the Great Kraken to see if he's worth it. Surprising to Illaoi, he is worth it and slips away not to be seen again for a while. In order for Pyke to join your team, you will need to earn his trust.

How to recruit Pyke in Ruined King
Pyke is the fifth of six champions who can join your team throughout history. And just like you recruited Yasuo and Miss Fortune, Pyke is unlocked by playing the story. Shortly after getting Miss Fortune, around seven hours into the game or around 45% completion, Pyke will join your crew. He will join you after fighting the Deeplurker aboard The Charming Lady. With more than one champion history intertwined and several personal reasons to team up, your team dynamic has become a bit more complicated.
How to play Pyke
Pyke is a powerful champion equipped with brutal attacks. One way to use Pyke's abilities is to capitalize on his stealth. Unlike any other champion, Pyke can go stealthy, which adds buffs to himself and can inflict debuffs on your opponents, like bleed and poison. Pyke's abilities make him a champion capable of quickly finishing off an enemy who's been beaten a little by his teammates.
Pyke works well with Yasuo as their high crit rates can complement each other, making each attack on the enemy harder. It can also be used with Illaoi to great effect. As Illaoi uses his taunt and shield, you can be sure not to get hit by your stealth. Experiment with Pyke's kit and team dynamics to find the groove that works best for you.
