Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
About me: Hi! I'm AbaddoNz and I'm addicted since season 2. I'm addicted to play agggressive supports. This is my first guide ( Leona guide is coming soon) and I'm not a English native speaker, so please let me know about every mistake you see ;-) Also, if you don't agree with my statements feel free to ask / argue whatever you want!
I have around 2.5k normals played and more then 600 rankeds, most of them as supports. I'm big fan of Krepo and Daydreamin and this whole guide is based on my experience and their streams and tips.
Pros and Cons
Greater Quintessence of Health
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Mark of Armor
Greater Seal of Armor
Imo best runeset.
Greater Quintessence of Health gives you early HP advantage. In previous patches Greater Quintessence of Gold was also viable pick, but not anymore. Due to changes in masteries tree HP is more usefull.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist and Greater Seal of Armor are core and don't even think about something else. In this build you should engage almost every fight. Other options are not that viable.
For Marks I pick Greater Mark of Armor it's more siutable for my gamestyle then Greater Mark of Attack Damage but if you prefer more poke and more damage from Flay passive go for it.
Greed Scavenger due to this 2 masteries we can start with doran shield without losing so much money
Culinary Master biscuits OP. More HP and some mana can help us a lot
Runic Affinity only one point and it gives 20% of longer buff duration. Imo worthwhile.
Intelligence must have. With 3 points we have 10% reduced cooldown of activated items... and with this build you got 2-3 of them.
Alchemist and Scout are also must have at any support.
Defence masteries tree like at almost every champion. All necessary to get Juggernaut
SkillsDeath Sentence at 1st lvl?
It's just better. If you try 1 level fights it's much better then any other thresh's skills. Also requisitive during invades.
Why max Flay first?
Simple. AOE slow, better poke due to Flay passive.
Thresh is just a beast at laning phase. Hard CC, great poke and Dark Passage ganks make him the best support atm.
How to lane as Thresh?
1. Very important is to get 2nd level before your enemies. If you fight versus squishy enemy support you might go full in and engage fight. With well aimed Death Sentence and if your ADC has quick reflex it should be simple kill.
2. Poke... poke... poke... Passive from Flay gives your single auto attack nice poke power. You should always help your ADC to get as more last hits as it's possible and good zoning is essential to provide that.
How to roll a Dr. Hook o.O
What you should do
- Engage fights by hook adc or apc
- Focus at champions with no escape mechanics
- Always check where is your ADC
- Save your team mates by Dark Passage
- Keep vision and timers for Drake and Baron
- Remember to use your active items (Common mistake)
- Use Ignite wisely
What you should not do
- Death Sentence tanky champions
- Sometimes engage when your team is behind is just stupid

You have your Flay on cooldown then, but it's great if you try to chase someone, escape or set up unexpected fights, much harder to doge.

Amazing hooks, amazing Dark Passage ganks.
And something funny ;)

Thresh is great champion. His abilities and mechanics provide excelent support scopes. You need to practise a lot to make "plays" but after you gain some experience Thresh is just so funny to play. It would be great if you're support in your team who make calls, verbal communication makes him even better.
