Threats to Thresh with this build
|Alistar||Alistar doesn't really scream threat to thresh. He can intercept your Hook/Flay with his knock up and help his partner with sustain by using his healing abilities. But as long as you play passive enough and time your combos right, you will have a decent laning phase against an Alistar.|
Hello, I am AceHunter (formerly known as Dead Demon Seal). I mainly play support as my preferred role. Playing support is fun, you get to engage first and you usually have the CC and protective abilities. It also feels good to get your ADC kills. :D
Thresh can be a tank or bruiser type of support, or maybe again both(?) Who knows. xD
My idea of a Thresh support is to Hook and Flay the enemy team to their death. But it can be a bit more complex than that. I guess this is where the saying "it is easier said than done" comes into play. As Thresh, you must time every ability/combo accordingly, not doing so means you just got yourself a one way ticket to death, unless of course you find a way to cheat death (which can be easily done as Thresh).
Thresh's best role is SUPPORT.
Thresh should not be built as a damage based champion. He does not have good enough damage ratio to be relevant in any fights!

---Thresh does have a decent amount of Mobility, but not enough for me to consider it a pro, but he also has enough for me to not consider it a con.
---Thresh has a hard time escaping situations. Once he is caught out, he has a 95% chance (in my opinion) of dying. His only ways of getting out of either hooking something and getting out, having teammates help, or the enemy team was not able to finish the job. Though, some might disagree; this is what I think of his escape routes.
