Threats to Thresh with this build
|Twitch||It's basically a worse Kog'Maw for you.|
Are You Having trouble as an adc?
Are you feeding in solo queue every game?
Are you struggling to find that go-to champ?
Well look no further, for I have discovered the greatest secret in League of Legends. This champion will carry you out of bronze. Out of silver. Gold even, and will carry you to be the number one challenger player in the world. This guide will be too MLG for most of you, and will require a lot of hard work, dedication, and plenty of manly-man-ness.
This, is the ADC Thresh Guide.
Now I know what you're thinking.
How the **** will ADC thresh help me get to challenger one?
Well, here are my reasons.
One: Thresh is tankier than every other ADC in the game and he gives no ****s.
Most of your average ADC’s are far too squishy to lane by themselves, and require the constant attention and babysitting of a support. Well Thresh already is a support, so he can support himself! No more waiting for that Taric stun to set up a kill. You're ****ing thresh! Hook that ***** and give yourself the kill! Plus, you're not a little *****, and can actually have enough health to take more than two hits in a team fight. Thresh gives no ****s! He can just attack whenever he feels like it.
Reason Number Two: More CC
I’m sure most of you in bronze know about bad teammates. I am also aware that many of you have played with a bad blitzcrank before. You and your team are all waiting around for blitzcrank to pull someone, and when he finally does, he completely shanks it, and pulls the closest minion possible, and the whole team has to wait another 20 seconds for is Q to cooldown. BUT NOT WHEN YOUR THRESH!! If you're thresh and you see that happen, you can just say “GTF Outta here, useless *****, I'll pull them myself!” And you do, and your team loves you for it. Now if that blitzcrank was good, then the other team is in trouble, because two of them will be pulled every teamfight, and that is basically gg.
Now I feel you can have success with alot of different builds with thresh.
Infinity Edge Example Build:
Infinity Edge - Boots - Static Shiv - Phantom Dancer - Last Whisper.
With the Trinity Force Build, you always want to get T.F -> boots of speed ->Infinity Edge. The other items you buy depending on what the enemy is building. Get last whisper next if they have a lot of armor. If they don't, go for blade of the ruin king instead.
With Infinity edge, you always build Infinity Edge -> Boots of Speed -> Static Shiv.
I usually don't upgrade my boots until it is absolutely necessary. If I have a support such as Karma, or another champion that gives more speed, I might not upgrade my boots till late game. If you have extra gold you can upgrade earlier, but I recommend starting your next damage item instead.
Late Game Defense Items:
If you are getting targeted by Assassin champs like Rengar, Talon, Shaco, Get Guardian Angel. Every Teamfight make sure that GA is off cooldown, and you won't have to worry about getting completely ****ped on. If they have a lot of AP, go for Banshees Veil. If you're getting slowed or debuffed, get Mercurial Scepter.
Now this skill sequence allows you to do a lot of damage, and reduce the cooldown of your Q. Have your q ready is very important, and it is what allows you to get most of your kills. The flail will add Bonus attack damage, as well as helping you secure those kills.
Pros / Cons
+More CC for team
+Tankier than most ADC's
- Low Range
- Lower than average Damage
In the bot lane, Thresh can work well with nearly any support. Kill lanes with Blitzcrank or Leona are hilarious with the amount of CC you have. There is nothing better than Blitzcrank pulling someone then you flailing them under tower. They can MOVE LOL. Sustain champs like Sona or Nami help ease of the poke from other adc, and let you survive a lot longer.
The current Meta is tanky teammates, but with Thresh ADC, it allows you to pick squishier, higher damage top laners and Junglers.
Team Comp Example:
Jungle: Lee Sin
Mid : Katarina
Now garen is pretty tanky, but we had Lee Sin go straight AD, and he was WRECKING KIDS.
With Jannas tornado and my Hook, we could all engage and do massive damage without being attacked too much.
But my favorite bot lane partner is blitzcrank. You cannot stop the grabs LMFAO
