Why tanky Warwick
I've seen and heard of people saying to go AP Warwick it's more effective and better but I saw this youtuber who went tanky warwick and dominated I remember him going 16 and 2 I'll give you guys a link so you can say I'm not joking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGv5Gp-RpDY I don't know if I have permission for links but I'll put it there for you guys to see. Back to why tanky Warwick, I went tanky Warwick because of that video and still am today I haven't played him in a while because I'm at the moment playing Kha'Zix jungle. So anyways I logged on to smurf playing tanky Warwick cause there were no champs that I was able to use so i went in bot game got a hole lot of kills obviously it took a long time because noobs but the interesting part was when I was pretty much having my full build I was able to solo baron with more than 50% health to spare! It was amazing that I did that I never did it when I used to play him.
Wit's end + blade of the ruin king?
Wit's end and blade of the ruin king are basically the same thing and it would sorta be stupid to get them both. BUT! putting the W, blade of the ruin king AND wit's end can get you to 2.11 attack damage if you level 18 with blade and wit's. If you combine all that you can just get the buffs so fast it'll be less than 5 seconds average without smite.
Alacrity and boots of swiftness?
I chose boots of swiftness and alacrity because if you read fully the Why tanky Warwick the link up there the video had the guy take alacrity on boots of swiftness he was almost able to go super fast when his E activated. Plus your W plus E combo you'll attack that guy so crazy if he doesn't have any towers or allies where he's going he'll die no matter what 100%.
No feral flare, no spirits?
Jesus you think that this build is 100% strange and messed up. I sold the hunters machete to become more tanky and have more space for health and you won't really need that later on if you keep on getting the buffs which will also encourage you to get them in late game people usually stop getting buffs since it'll stop being useful late game. also make sure you don't jungle with just the boots. Feral flare has attack speed why not get one? Blade and Wit's have more attack speed which is what you should be focusing on not damage even though Blade has damage it has life steal which will add to you passive
I usually take my Q first since it'll help with a lot of life steal then take W or E if your gonna gank early on you should take your E if your gonna stay jungle might as well take your W.
Pros / Cons
1. His E makes him great for chases
2. W makes faster clean up on buffs and jungles
3. Ult is great for ganks with your ally damaging him as well
1. His E gives away his position if he were to gank
2. The E will only work if there 50% below health so tanks can likely escape without dying
3. Barely any kiting abilities
Jungling I like to take blue buff and rush to enemys red if he starts red then i'll just go invade enemy blue if not i'll stay at the enemys red when the buff is low i'll smite steal or try to kill the jungler for first blood. Buff steal and control is really important, at 7:10 the second buff will come up so if your at the recall place at 6:00 rush as fast as you can to the buff and hide in that brush you'll probably get there in a minute or so if the jungle comes at the same time try to kill him if he goes to the bush he'll be caught by surprise, panic and stumble. This might be dumb but if he dies run away for the buff as if he was thinking you left the buff cause he still has a brief vision when he's dead so if the enemy junglier sees you taking the buff the enemy mid laner will try and kill you and you did take damage from fighting the enemy jungler.
