Pros / Cons

Runes


SPACE
greater mark of hybrid penetration

These runes are the most effective for Thresh, as with this build he does MIXED damage and would lose damage overall if you chose just greater mark of armor penetration or Greater Mark of Magic Penetration, both of which are acceptable replacements.

I take Greater Seal of Armor as 90% of the damage you will receive top lane is physical (minions, champions, towers etc.). I find that they are better than Greater Seal of Scaling Armor as Damnation more than makes up for the lack of armor late game.
SPACE

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist I find most appropriate as there is no need for early magic resist, unless you are facing an AP top lanes e.g. Rumble or Elise. Then Greater Glyph of Magic Resist is a better option.
SPACE
SPACE

All of Thresh's damage scales with AD, and nobody buys Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed, let alone have a rune page just for them.

Offense Tree
Tier 1 // - 5% CDR is much better than 5% AS, and this thresh is here to KILL, not tank so we take the point in Double-Edged Sword . Lastly I take a point into Butcher as farming is a very high priority, and as Thresh has a low-ish base damage it can never hurt to help.

Tier 2 // - More AD = More damage, nice and simple

Tier 3 // - I take all 3 points in Executioner as it increase our damage to half health champions, which is great for finishing off those pesky tanks who never seem to die. Martial Mastery is meh, but we need to put a point in here somewhere so might as well get +4 AD for it

Tier 4 // - I like to put one point into Dangerous Game as it might just save your life when you tower dive, also really helps in team fights too. As with the last tier these left over points need to go somewhere, so 3 points into Warlord is the best option in my opinion.

Tier 5 // - 6% armor and magic penetration is GOD LIKE, the best part is that on champions who don't do large amounts of mixed damage, half of this mastery is wasted, but not on Thresh.

Tier 6 // - Lastly the point into Havoc , 3% increased damage is AMAZING. any sort of % damage increase is extremely powerful especially on carries.
SPACE
Defence Tree
Tier 1 // - Enchanted Armor is much more effective on thresh, than other carries. Thats because of Damnation, meaning he only has 12 base armor! The rest of this tier is self explanatory and can be replaced with anything else on this tree.

Tier 2 // - Veteran Scars are the best choose here +36 health isn't great but better than others and need to progress upwards.

Tier 3 // - Same issue with the Greater Seal of Armor, we will most likely be facing AD opponents therefore the more armor the better.
