Introduction

This is a guide which will hopefully help you to dominate the top lane. I have played jungling warwick quite a lot, but when I tried him in a solo lane, I quit jungling with him at once. It is easy, powerful, annoying for the other team. This guide will make warwick do damage, but still he will be tanky.

Runes

I use ability power runes, because it helps your hungering strike/early game. The cooldown reduction is nice, since your ultimate is very powerful, and you want it to be ready as much as possible. Magic penetration over armor penetration since his ultimate and hungering strike is magic damage, and his main damage output. Mana regen is because his hungering strike drains a lot of mana. My explanation of cooldown reduction glyphs and mana regen seals, does also tell that blue buff is very good on warwick. You should ask your jungler to get it, whenever he doesn't need it.

Summoner Spells

I pretty much like ignite because of the ability power. Flash is a must, because you often will get low on hp after having used ultimate in a team fight. What I do then is to flash out, use hungering strike on two creeps and reenter.

The three possible alternatives are ghost, exhaust, and teleport. It is pretty obvious why.

Items

If you look at the items, you will see the passives from wits end, malady, and madreds bloodrazor. They are good with warwicks ultimate. If you don't feel tanky enough, when you have bought wits end or malady (the order doesn't matter), skip one of them in the build.

How to lane.

Laning Warwick is pretty easy. You should be very agrresive, since you can heal up with your hungering strike very easily. No matter who you face in top, you shuold be able to manage to dominate the person. Dont be afraid of losing more hp than your opponent in a fight, but be sure to get out of it in time. Then heal up, and attack again. You heal up faster than any other champion, so that shouldnt be a problem.

If you have a jungler, ganking after you turn level 6, should be rather easy. When you see he is coming use infinte duress afterwards the kill should be no problem.

Pros / Cons

The pros of laning warwick is, that he can dominate pretty much every lane, is hard to focus down in team fights, and if they try, you will win it. He is good both in solo fights, but his ultimate is also very good in teamfights, or just 2v2.

The cons are, however, that he has a little problem with the mana in early game. Another "bad" thing is that his damage output is pretty much a burst even though his hungering strike has about 2 seconds cooldown.
