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.
This Warwick build is based on sapping the life from other champions. I like to start in the jungle with this build by getting the vampires scepter first while neutral farming. You should never have to go back to heal, because of your natural and item based life-gain, as well as your life sapping Hungering Strike. You should be able to non-stop farm until lvl 6. Having reached lvl 6 you should re-enter your lane. After pushing the lane a bit you should have malady all ready to build and be working on your greaves. (I like to get a little more agressive when i get malady but don't over-do it.)
These masteries help out your attack speed and mana regen, which you will need to use those ablilites more often and stay in battle and fighting longer. I rarly ever have to go back to help or get mana. Whatever you do, don't spam your abilities and use them to farm at the start and mid game. Your attack speed will be more than enough for the minons. Save those abiltys to gain hp, kill champions or destroy turrents, and if you need a quick push.
After you get your greaves work on Stark Feather(Sp?). I usually just buy the amulet of vigor then Stark after. Once you get it your attack speed should be around 1.9 cause of the intesive attack speed rune build you dont need any more attack speed iteams, and with Hunters Call it should bring your attack speed to 2.36 or more depending on your lvl.(if you really want 2.5 attack speed dont worry, by lvl. 18 your attack speed will be around 2.03, but with Hunters Call it gets to 2.5) but with 2.3 attack speed using Call as well as my ultimate, I get very agressive, hunting people now as it is a faster way to lvl.
I personally love to turrent dive, but usually do it when an opposing champ has around half hp and there is only one champion.(maybe 2 if there both low severally low.)
Late game it will not matter if there are 2 champions in your way, because the next item is the guardian's armor. Once you get this it makes the game so much easier. I really just use it for the revival effect, the armor is a bonus. You can now turrent dive with out a worry just run in attack, ultimate, kill, fight the other guy if there is one. If you kill him good, if you don't and you die, you get revived and flash away. Granted you can't do this all the time, so use it when you think you think you can kill both but a second life is pretty useful.
Now it is time for the Bloodlust Sword, it gives major attack boost and life steal. Your life steal is now quite large at this point, and if you have not already ended the game you will become very hard to kill. You can win ganks of, at most 3 champions all by your self, but this is of course with the guardian's armor.
Put in Black Cleaver for more damage.
Good luck and have fun!
