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.
Hello, if you are going to be lane Warwick, get a Doran's ring. With the Doran's ring you will be hitting good damage with your Q skill because the additional damage is using ability power. As well with your AP runes you will be healing better. Getting Boots Of Speed will make you faster and should be easier to dodge skill shots and such. As well for the Heart Of Gold, it will give you more HP so you can be more tanky and have the 5gold/10 seconds. When you are farming with your fair damage with Q you should be getting the Sorcerer's Shoes to make your Q even stronger
After you get the Sorcerer's Shoes and the Heart Of Gold, You will be making a Rabadon's Deathcap. If the game is going slow, you should just get a Blasting Wand, but if the game is making progress and getting you a lot of kills/assists you should get a Needlessly Large Rod. Afterwards with all that AP you should be getting kills very well and have yourself a Rabadon's Deathcap. After the Rabadon's Deathcap you should be making a Glacial Shroud. The Glacial Shrould would help you because it gives you MP and Def so you can use more MP for your Q and be more tanky, and also the % cool-down will help you use your Q more often in team fights. After the Glacial Shroud you should be making a Sunfire Cape. I prefer getting the Giant's Belt just because you can take in more hits when fighting. The reason to get the Sunfire Cape is because since you are going to be in the fights using Q and kiting around. The Sunfire Cape will be doing damage who ever is near you fighting.
You should be well fitted with the equipment you have so far. So now you must complete your Glacial Shroud. When you have the frozen heart it'll take care of all those DPS they have and make you even MORE tanky. Also you are going to be having more % cool-down with your Q having you attack with it more often. Now with your gear so far, You will be also finishing the Heart Of Gold you have. With the Radiun's Omen you will be very hard to avoid once you have your enemy with the ultimate you use on them. The slow from the Radiun's Omen will make you attack your enemy serveral times with your Q before they can escape. Also, you are still getting more tanky. Last of all, after getting all of your tank items you will be selling that Doran's Ring to be either getting a Void Staff or Zonya's Hourglass. If getting the Void Staff, you will be doing some extreme kick-*** damage from that % spell armor penatration. If you still think tank is the way to go, then get the Zonya's Hourglass because you get a free 2second invincibility, but will be doing a little less damage from than what you get from the Void Staff.
Playing in the Lane
When playing Warwick for my guide, you should be running in as a start off for fights, then kite people. Try running around the battle and pick people off with your Q and when you can't get any kills you should be able to atleast do damage to make them have about 1/2 of thier health so with your E skill you will be able to either chase after them, or run away from them.
