Introduction

Greetings, I have tried many different builds and this ended up being one of the funnest, yet successful builds for Warwick. As you may have noticed this is not your typical DPS, Tank, or Jungle build. However, it does work very well with all of those aspects. Below is a screen shot showing how powerful this build actually is. Enjoy!

Jungling

Typically jungling performs two functions. One, it frees an extra lane giving your team a gold & experience advantage over your opponent. Two, it provides quick and easy gank opportunities. This will also provide an additional advantage to your team.

Below is a commonly used jungling path you can perform. As soon as you have rounded your way passed the Lizard(5), collecting both his and the Golem(4) buff you will want to gank the bottom lane. The trick here is to combine Flash, , and the Lizard(5) buff to ensure an easy kill.

Summoner Spells



Teleport is amazingly useful on Warwick due to his ability to gank, chase down enemies, and provide tanky support. With this ability you will be able to truly take advantage of your Ultimate and other abilities and provide necessary support to your team. This also works great for Jungling, you will no longer be stuck on the otherside of the map during key fights.




You will want to take Flash to help get those "Last Hits", chase down enemies, and of course escape from opposing ganks. Combined with your Ultimate you can easily catch an opponent for a quick gank.




Try combining these three abilities for an easy First Blood, or Gank. You will be amazed at how nasty this combo is! =)
