Introduction

Wardwick is a high skill cap champion for the elite of league of legends known to many as broken due to his hyper carry abilities along with the insane win rate. Wardwick possesses an innate hidden ability that removes the "Fog of War" aspect from the summoners rift map granting your team infinite vision. WARNING, this champion is a high risk high reward deal, only few can master the complexity of WARDwick but those that do shall reap the benefits of challenger tier.


Guide Top

Runes

For runes you must run gold income and cool down NO EXCEPTIONS. The gold income allows for the necessary gold to replace the nonexistant kills and assists that you will have throughout the match. The cool down is necessary to reduce trinket cooldown as well as your "Blood Scent", Wardwicks bread and butter as it allows maximum vision for your team.


Guide Top

Items

The key to this build consists of Wardwicks items which consist of wards, wards, and WARDS!! Wardwick wouldn't be wardwick without WARDS, so invest all your gold into wards followed by upgrading your vision into sightstones allowing you to scale into a late game visionary god.

Skill Sequence

Blood scent is wardwicks bread and butter as it gives wardwick VISION. Wardwick thrives off of creating vision throughout the map and what better ability than his own howling ward? The ability gains upmost priority and should be maxed first in the following level order: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18.

Spells

In choosing spells Clairvoyance is an absolute necessity. Clairvoyance adds to your vision kit allowing for maximum map coverage. For the second spell teleport and revive may be used to get back up and resume warding the entire map. My preferred spell is GHOST, with ghost not only are you a terrifying presence of wardage but now you inherent the title of the "Fast and Furious WARDWICK", what else is scarier than a hairy beast running towards you in lane surrounding you with wards leaving you with nowhere to hide?

Summary

To be successful with Wardwick one must follow the exact procedures necessary to assure victory. Disclaimer: If you have not attained a rank of challenger or higher it is advised you turn back, author of guide or riot games is not responsible for you being labeled as the feeder of the century.

1. Start by calling jungle and immediately locking in wardwick to establish confidence in your role while setting smite and flash as summoner spells. This is where the fun begins.

2. Right before the game begins set your summoners to clairvoyance and ghost/teleport and proceed to purchase as many stealth wards as possible.

3.Heres where the going gets rough, you will start off in a 1v9 situation as you will come to a realization that you have been matchmade with peasants that do not understand the true potential of wardwick. The match will begin with threats to report and afk but you shall continue on in the satisfaction of knowing you will be carrying these noobs to victory.

4. As the game begins you must run down mid lane as fast as possible utilizing either ghost or teleport making you an unstoppable force to not be reckoned with. As the enemy team begins to mock you they will soon realize that they have been surrounded by wards, they will soon realize that they can run but they can't hide.

5.Continue to push mid and feast on the enemies wards for gold along with your runes landing you in a gold mine for your first back.

6. Proceed to purchase as many stealth wards and sightstones as possible so that you can ward up the entire map.

7. Repeat Process

8.Victory

Ranked Play

This build is most effective in ranked play as ward coverage is highly emphasized in high elo play. If you ever watch diamond level streams or gameplay you will realize the map is full with wards granting vision to your entire team. The purpose of wardwick is to reveal the entire map and eliminate the fog of war completely, only then can your team proceed to victory.

Team Work

The key to success with wardwick in teamfights is to not get involved. The key to success as wardwick is to allow your team to engage in 4v5 teamfights allowing you to provide optimal ward coverage throughout the map. In teamfights you are literally unkillable as you are not present.
