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.
Welcome, to MrReaper135's guide to Warwick. Well more of just a place to share builds. Sometime in the future I plan on adding an in-depth guide but for now I will simply be sharing a few small details and increasing over time, aswell as adding other builds. Constructive criticism is accepted and so is any tips you may have or even build options (Credit will be given and your name will be on the build or the Chapter of which you majorly contributed to or suggested for. By the way this is my first released build/guide so please leave some feedback whether bad or good :)
Okay so lets get started with the builds.
'Top VS AD'This build is for Top lane when versing an AD (attack damage) opponent, usually a bruiser. The itemization focuses heavily on being tanky while still having a hard enough hit to be feared by your enemies. The 'Top VS AD' build doesn't mean use this if only your laning opponent is AD remember to use replacement items or other items you think may aid in countering damage of another kind.
'Top VS AD'This Build is also for top lane, when against an opponent or multiple opponents that deal magic damage, this build will shine through as a stronger backbone is your arsenal. 'Top VS AP' once again focuses on being tanky through health but also magic resist rather than the armor included in 'Top VS AD'. Just the same as last time, remember that most teams will try to pick team comps with varied damage types to make the role of tanking much more difficult so please remember to use replacement items and other items you believe will help to counter those team comps.
Other builds are a work in progress and please remember I will be testing these builds a lot and they may be subject to change if you don't like the changes than feel free to swap items around in your builds, after all these are just guidelines to help you on your way ;)
In most cases you will find starting at blue Golems with a leash will provide the best start for Jungling Warwick. Start at Blue > Proceed to wolves (depending on whether you decided to clear wolves before blue buff > two choices here are whether to invade or continue your clear, As Warwick isn't as fast or as strong in a duel as the more common junglers like Udyr, Shyvana and others like them, I would suggest simply continuing your clear > Take Double Golems out next > Lastly for red buff (Tip attack it once and draw it into the bush as to protect from smite steals) > Look at all three lanes and ask yourself, 'Are any lanes being pushed back?' and 'Do your allies have enough health and mana to fight?' and ask the lane if they saw any wards being placed. If the answers were Yes for the first two and no for the last, It is a great time to gank (although don't forget just because allies didn't see a ward being placed doesn't mean there isn't one sometimes that sneaky support gets away with it unnoticed). On a side note if your doing well and picked up first blood you could buy normal items but if the enemy is warding often it is a good idea to pick up an early Oracles elixir, Just try not to die after buying it.
Though it was short...for now. Thanks for reading and any feedback you may have left. Happy hunting and remember "It's not fun, Unless they run" :)
