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.
This is a Warick Guide for All Players who want kills and tonns of damage in last game.
If your aim is to play a champion who doesnt die you should choose another guide with more HP items and more Defensive Runes and Masteries because this guide is a total damage guide.
Later you will notice that Warwick is a jungler. My guide is for junglers too because till lvl 4, 5 or 6 its usefull to let a teammate go solo lane. If you dont have a solo lane guy you can choose my guide aswell cause its perfect to lane too - late i will explain the item changes if u want to lane with Warwick.
I think the most important thing in a League of Legends - Championguide is the ItemChapter, thats why its the longest part of my guide.
Jungling with Warwick is VERY easy because he never dies. His passive ability makes him stay against any jungling-enemys.
You start with a Clotharmor and 3 Helth pots, you will see - you dont need more. To get more lifesteal and stay longer in Gankes at lvl 4 or 5 you should buy "Wriggles Lantern" - it gets you lifesteal, armor, and attack damage - very usefull in early game.
AFter it you buy "Berserkers Graves" also known as attackspeed-botts - usefull in late game farming and VERY usefull with Warwicks passive ability. After this two items you should look against who you play.
Now you have some opinions:
1. You play against an AP team so you buy "Wit´s End" - Massive attack speed and magic resistance in one item.
2. You play against an AD team so you buy "Sword of the devine" - Massive attack speed and a nice active and passive ability in one item!
3. You play WITH much AP champions so you buy "Malady" - Massive attack speed and a GREAT support passive ability for you teammates. This item reduces the enemys magic resitance and you teammates can finish them.
In every situation your core items till here are:
With this items you have a great core and you will be able to solo nearly every enemy who isnt higher level than you. You only have to be carefull against "Tryndamere" or "Jax", the other chars wont be able to kill you 1 vs. 1.
Fter these core items you need some more HP so you buy "Spirit Visage". It gets you some HP and the passive which works great with Warwicks passive.. His heals will be better and with the lifesteal from "Wriggels Lantern" you will be nearly unkillable if you dont get stunned.
Now you have Nice attackspeed and enough HP but we want to get kills, so we have to buy damage items - "Black Cleaver"! Now you have epic damage, epic attack speed with warwicks W-Spell and epic Lifesteal from his passive ability and "Wriggels Lantern".
To end this perfect item build you should buy "Sunfire-Cape" to have some more HP and to stay longer against fighters.
At the end you have the following items selected:
(The third item can be the other once from top)
If u want more Damage at the end, you can change "Wriggles Lantern" with "The Bloodthirster" - you will get much more damage and lifesteal.
In any Case you skill the Q-Spell at any time. Its important for junglers and for laners that your Q spell is at 5 on LVL 9.
The second priority is the attackspeed-buff (W-Spell) but u should skill E at LVL 3 once to get some additional movement speed in ganks.
IMPORTANT!!!! YOU DONT NEED SMITE WITH WARWICK IN THE JUNGLE BUT ITS VERNY NEEDFULL!!!
because in my opinion Flash is a must have on nearly ANY champion. You use it to folow enemys through walls or to save yourself from a teamclash with low HP. Ignite is good for getting kills in early game.
As i said before SMITE is usefull but its possible without it
Creeping / Jungling
As i said before jungling with Warwick is very easy so if you follow my guide you can´t die.
You start at "BLUE BUFF" because you realy need mana from LVL 1 to LVL 3 in the jungle.
With this BUFF you go to the "WOLFES". There you get LVL 2 and skill the "Speedbuff spell".
You go on to the Ghosts on the other side of the jungle and kill them. Here its important to focus the BIG GOHST FIRST and kill it with Q SPELL AND SPEED BUFF. After this you kill the little creeps and go on to the "GOLEMS" over the BOTTOM LANE. After that you kill the "RED BUFF".
Now you can jungle as you want, you are strong enough to kill every jungle-creep. Now you should start ganking.
