This build endeavours to balance Yorick so he is decent at combat and cluing, he should be capable solo and multiplayer.
He has a pretty standard build with Guard Dog, Leather Coat, Lucky!, Cherished Keepsake, Act of Desperation and Vicious Blow and a few weapon cards. This build only includes 4 weapon cards, you could add another set of weapon cards to change balance as preferred (e.g. add another set in place of Mysterious Raven to improve combat consistency at the cost of some cluing ability, Gravedigger's Shovel would work well, whilst still keeping some extra clue gathering).
To increase his ability to collect clues Scene of the Crime, "Look what I found!", Old Keyring and Mysterious Raven are included. Testless is good with his low , and Old Keyring is basically a +2 which he needs, and can be spammed until you succeed twice and recur it.
In order to not hinder his cluing abilities when upgrading, you'll want to stick with single handed weapons so you can continue to recur Old Keyring.
Emergency Cache and Act of Desperation will help pay for his weapons and events whilst also helping recur with Yorick's ability to play assets from his discard pile. In a pinch you can chuck an Old Keyring that's in play at a monster's face for +1 and +1 damage fight action and get a resource back, and still have your other weapon in play!
Cluing "Look what I found!" works well with Old Keyring. If you fail by 2 or less whilst investigating you can play "Look what I found!" to get two clues and you don't lose a key. If there are clues left you can do the test again with a nice bonus with Live and Learn. All these cards can be recurred with Resourceful and Yorick's abilities.
Walk to a new location with enemies, play Scene of the Crime, then discard Mysterious Raven and offload the horror onto your teddy bear and net 3 testless clues in one action. Kill an enemy and get your Mysterious Raven or Cherished Keepsake back.
If you wish to use Chainsaw with Yorick and make less of a cluer: Swap out Old Keyring with Evidence!, then replace .18 Derringer with Chainsaw when you get the experience points. Or if you want chainsaw and more combat consistency, swap out Old Keyring for Chainsaw directly.
The pistols are similar in a lot of ways, so choose whichever you prefer. The .18 Derringer (2) is cheaper to play, has fewer ammo but does not spend ammo on misses and gives a +1 combat on next action after a miss, and it's a survivor item so can recur with resourceful. The .45 Automatic (2) has 1 more ammo. It is more expensive, however, which means it will be more effective with Act of Desperation. Eucatastrophe is a used to further supplement Yoricks cluing, plus a safeguard for important checks where an would be a threat. Charisma gives you the opportunity for more damage soak, cluing and damage dealing by opening up opportunities for more effective ally use. Drawing Thin is great to use in conjunction with Eucatastrophe (plus all your other survivor resources) for more resources and card draw, for practically free when used on easy investigation tests.
Other upgrade options for consideration
