This guide is still under construction.
I will finish this guide soon. ( i have to ad some more text)
(maybe i will do some changes)
Hi I just want to say something before i start my guide.
First I want to say I´m just a stupid guy from Germany so my English is not that good.
This is my first guide....so be nice to me.
The reason why i made this guide is that I haven´t seen anyone playing Thresh in top lane as an AD Offtank.
I don´t think that i play this champ in perfection but i want to inspire some people to try him in top lane.
If you have any questions simply write a comment.
Who is Tresh ?
Thresh is a twisted reaper whose hungry chains ensnare the souls of the living. A moment's hesitation at the sight of his ghostly visage and there is no escape. He leaves in his wake hollow corpses, their souls ripped loose and trapped in the sickly green light of his lantern. The Chain Warden takes sadistic joy in tormenting his victims, both before and after their deaths. His grim task is never complete, and he stalks the land for ever more resolute spirits to unravel.
Thresh carves careful, deliberate paths through Valoran. He handpicks his targets individually, devoting his full attention to each soul in turn. He isolates and toys with them, gradually eroding their sanity with his twisted, maddening humor. Once Thresh takes an interest in a soul, he does not relent until he possesses it. He then drags those he captures back to the Shadow Isles for an unimaginably dreadful fate. This is his only purpose.
Little is known about the Chain Warden's past, and many of the details live only in nursery rhymes and campfire tales. They tell of a sadistic jailer from centuries past who took great delight in torturing his wards. Patient and brutal, he used a variety of methods to break his victims' minds before their bodies succumbed to his grisly designs. Chains were the jailer's preferred instruments of terror. Their shrill scrape marked his dreadful approach and promised agony to those he visited. His dark reign went unchallenged until his prisoners escaped during a massive riot. They overwhelmed him, and without ceremony or remorse, hanged him from his own chains. Thus began the unlife of the horrible specter known as Thresh, or so the tales go.
Thresh now haunts the land, leaving an aftermath of horror and despair. However, there is a devious purpose behind his dark machinations, and the meager spirits of average men are insufficient. He seeks stronger souls. Only when he has broken the wills of Valoran's most resilient warriors will he finally have what he needs.
"There are few things as invigorating as taking a mind apart, piece by piece."
Why this Masteries ?
I use this 14/16/0 masteries on Thresh because the points in offense gives him lots of extra. I put 1 point in
and 1 point in
because you will do hybrid damage like Jax. The 16 points in defense make you more tanky and gives you the ability to farm over long term without going back to base.
If you don´t want to suck with Thresh it´s important to farm well and pick up the little green balls which summon because of .
With Thresh it´s realy easy to dominate your lane. If you play against a melee champion your range autohits can deal damage to the enemy all the time without getting hit. While farming phase only use your spells if you can pick up a kill or to escape from bad situations.
Pros / Cons
- hard 2 gank
- easy to farm
- gains armor/ap with his passive so he doesn´t need ap/armor items
- strong ult with huge cc
- strong early and awesome lategame
- spells almost only used for cc (only the passive of "Deathsentence" and "The Box" do dmg)
- skin sucks (in my opinions :P )
- requires good farm to win lane
Hard enemy and how to fight them
In this topic i will talk about some toplane champions which are hard to handle as Thresh
He is is one of the champions i recognized to be very strong against Thresh. His passive allows him to block your 1st hit ....this is very annoying while laning because you can't kill him slowly with your full charged autohits. Also he can jump on you, hit you and run back. You will have the possibility to hit him 1-2 time if he jumps on you...here his passive sucks again. Very hard is that he will throw his spears on you like every 20 seconds which is a real pain.
So I won´t lane against Pantheon with Thresh. If you have to lane against him i would play even more aggressive and don´t even let his passive build a shield. I would pick "teleport" as summoner spell because this strategy while force you to go back to base often....
I will add some other champions as soon as I spotted a really hard enemy for Thresh
I really like to play Thresh like i tried to explained in this guide.
If you think the same hit the votebutton. If you don´t like this build then try it and don´t forget it´s still under construction so there will maybe be some changes soon.
