The Thresh Prince
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Thresh with this build
|Blitzcrank||Blitzcrank is tough to play against regardless of which champion you are, ultimately this lane will come down to who lands the pull first. Just remember to avoid his line of sight and hug minions and you should survive.|
|Vayne||Laning against Vayne is entirely reliant on your Adc's decision to go in. If your adc goes in after a successful Thresh chain combo it should be an easy kill. But should the two of you be separated its an easy kill for Vayne.|
Intro to Thresh
Thresh is one of the most popular supports in the meta right now, and for good reason. Thresh is a fantastic tanky, bruiser, support. His ability to initiate team fights is second to none and, if played right Thresh is great at dueling as well. However there is a level of skill required in order to play Thresh effectively, and hopefully this guide will make it easier for you.
Thresh is capable of filling almost any role his team needs, these include but are not limitied to:
-Tank; While not the greatest of all tanks (thanks passive), building armor and relying on his cc will make Thresh one of the hardest champions to kill period.
-Fighter; When built with full damage Thresh is a deadly force to be reckoned with, his kit allows him to hold his opponents down while he relentlessly beats them with his chains
-Complete support; Bringing heal and maxing your shield first, as well as buying your standard support items makes it fairly easy for Thresh to keep everyone alive, as long as he is there to help.
I like to use one primary combo when playing Thresh, the combo is based around disabling the enemy champion or team, and allowing your teammates to pick up the kills.
The combo is as follows:
Begin by landing your Death Sentenceon an enemy champion, then recast to travel instantaneously to the enemies location, next Flaythe target towards your allies, cast The Boxto slow there escape, and lastly toss Dark Passage towards your allies so that your primary damage dealer can quickly arrive and pick up the kill.
Thresh is a champion that you really have to practice with before you can become a master. I myself have not learned all that there is to learn, but I am excited to share these tips with you:
-Turn Smartcast off; Thresh is entirely reliant on his death sentence ability, removing Smartcast allows you to better predict your enemies movements and aim your chain.
-Know your limits; As with all champions there are limits to what you can do,
I hope this guides helps you! If you have any suggestions or questions please let me know! Good luck summoners.
