Guide Top


Warwick is a very good jungler, he can be used in normals and ranked. He clears the jungle quick and get the ganks good. His passive and spells make him so sufficient for whatever he does. If you build him right like mine you are basically unstoppable. You take all the damage while killing everyone and this is why Warwick is so good. He is a tank that kills. Tanky DPS kiler sounds OP to me.

I take red armor pens as it gives the most armor pen out of all the runes, and armor pen is a good rune. I take yellow armor for defense. Then blue attack speed because it gives a equal amount while you have other runes. Then last I take attack damage purples/browns idk i dont wanna spell that rune name lol.

I do the basic 21-1-8 giving me the AD masteries with the plus 10 gold when smiting.

This build is pretty boss. :) I start and five . When I recall next I buy and boots. Next recall i buy bloodrazors but if you dont have enough i buy recurve bow first. After I finish my boots and buy berserker greaves. After I buy Shureylias for the cdr and philly stone PLUS the health and speed boost. Then a frozen heart for more CDR and armor. Next i get a black cleaver for more att speed and damage plus the unique passive. Last I buy a frozen heart for the slow, damage, and heatlh.

Summoner Spells

Flash is good for most junglers. It helps get the last hit and chase up with the enemy. It is also good for escaping, you can jump thru walls and save yourself.

Smite is used for most junglers. It helps them clear the jungle faster and not die. It gives you extra gold and is very good.

Ranked Play

In ranked you can play him as a solo top or jungler. This guide is for jungling. So do what I say! :D

Pros / Cons

Pros: He's a sufficient jungler and ganker. He is tanky and a good killer. You dont need lifesteal because of his passive. Great chaser.

Cons: If you get caught your probably most dead. If you know your dead might as well try to lifesteal your way back.

Creeping / Jungling

When jungling as Warwick i start blue, kill wolves, wraiths, golems, then red. I then recall and buy my items. After I start ganking. With your scent and ult no one can run from you.

Team Work

When playing Warwick, you just can't 1v3 people or get kited or anything. Warwick is supposed to start the fight most of the time. You ult, then your team comes in and **** just gets real. Make sure you go for the squishies and your team focuses the one you ulted.

Guide Top


Sometimes you have that dead teammate and minions are pushing the hell out of his lane. This is where hunters call comes in handy. Just W and Q a bunch of minions and u'll be rich.

Tuff Times

When your in stuff like you think you can't escape and you know your going to die. Fight back, why die and not try to kill a person when you can maybe live and kill the person. This is where is passive comes in handy. Just W and lifesteal them and you might kill them and live which is better than dying and not hurting them.

Guide Top

Baron and Dragon

Make sure your support always ward dragon or baron. You can easily solo dragon or baron as Warwick. I wouldnt recommend it because the other team might have it warded and kill you. All you need to do is hunters call and lifesteal it. Make sure to smite it at the end to get the kill for the extra gold and to make sure that they didnt get it.

Rich B*tch

When you rich and you have all your items, dont forget there's consumables. There's oracles, more health, damage, ap, agility. So don't forget that there are consumables at the end when your rich and full items.
