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.
Warwick counted himself amongst the most powerful and revered men in his home city-state of Zaun. Over the course of his infamous career as an alchemist, Warwick won many honors for his craft, not the least of which was a lucrative offer for service in the Noxian military during their campaigns against Ionia. Sequestered in his labs far from the front lines, Warwick and his apprentice Singed toiled relentlessly to manufacture all manner of appalling concoctions for the Noxian army. So potent was his art that even the greatest of Ionia's healers - under the leadership of the Starchild Soraka - struggled to combat the poisons and chemical weapons generated by his despicable mind. Warwick's reign of terror grew so horrific that his very name became a curse in the eyes of his Ionian foes, and they began referring to him only as "the Deathmaker".
But even one under the protection of the Noxian High Command is not wholly beyond the reach of retribution. For as Soraka strode across the myriad of death and destruction left in the wake of one of Warwick's chemical attacks, her heart finally gave way. She called down the wrath of the cosmos on Warwick, wishing that his form should mirror the cruelty in his heart - a curse that would come at the price of her aspiring divinity. Within his laboratory, a terrible thirst took hold over Warwick. As his apprentice looked on in horror, Warwick threw open the doors to his bastion and sprinted off towards parts unknown, a bloodcurdling howling marking his passage. He had become a werewolf; a wild, murderous beast. Today, the Blood Hunter fights for Noxus within the League of Legends... thankful of the curse that his now-mortal enemy bestowed upon him.
"The rage of the beast now complements his predatory spirit."
Marks and Quitesences on ArP
Greater Mark of Desolation
Greater Quintessence of Desolation
Lowering Armor of your potential gank target to 0 is something VERY nice, and you are not able to always go for Black Cleaver in games (they finish too fast or you cant farm enaugh for it) That is why i swapped some runes for ArP. It also lets you kill in jungle more efficiently on lower lvls.
With this runes composition a non-tank champ shoud have its armor reduced nearly or to 0 witch will have great benefit on damage your ultimate and melee hits deal.
Greater Glyph of Alacrity
Greater Seal of Alacrity
Glyphs and Seals on Attack Speed. This will get your Eternal Thirst work better and give you faster jungling and more survivability due to increased health regen.
Personatly I play with 21/0/9 masteries. 21Points in attack for some attack damage, lifesteal, attack speed, all these atributes are very great when jungling. 9Points in utility for some movement speed, lesser death time and cooldown reduction on Flash, also I take a mastery to increase neutral monster buff time, so you can jungle alot longer with the same blue buff or red buff, and the longer you jungle, the faster you make gold and levelup
Pros / Cons
+ One of the best junglers ingame
+ Great regeneration skills makes him quite tanky even without lifesteal.
+ Superb ganker. Apears from nowhere with a highly damaging long stun.
+ Best chaser ingame due to passive MS buff when the prey is under 50% life.
+ Extreme survival capabilities for a dps champ thx to huge lifesteal
+ % based damage (Bloodrazor + Hungering Strike) will get even tanks down very fast
- Golem buff dependant early/mid game.
- Costy itemisation
- Stun/blind vurneable
- Easy to countergank in jungle
- Leaves 1 champion for 2v1 lane
- Quite team dependant (ganks and map/miss awareness).
Make sure that you always have a team that says miss or ss when needed, and that they won't answer to enemies when they ask "Is warwick afk?" becouse they can't see you. Becouse if they answer that you're jungling, it will give away your cover and you won't be able to gank your enemies so good, also they might start tryin to catch you in jungle and gank.
