For the masteries,I take a 15/14/1 build,because I need a bit of damage and a little defense.The one point in Summoner's Insight is only to increase flash, if you do not take flash, which I recommend,then you take one point in Initiator .The damage and defense masteries should be explained by itself.

Summoner Spells

The Summoner Spells


Very Good Summoner Spells:



Flash is good for get nearer to the enemy to set Infinite Duress or to escape from fights.

Teleport is nice because you often can help your friends with the ultimate and now you can get fast throw them.

Ignite is nice to win fights against other lifesteal champs.

Viable Summoner Spells:


Exhaust is nice to pick kills.

Ghost is good to connect with Blood Scent.

Clarity is good because you have not much mana but use much.

Cleanse is good when theres to much CC in the enemy team.

Non-Viable Summoner Spells



Clairvoyance is for your Support so do not take it.

Revive is only good for Dr. Mundo is think because he really never dies.

Heal is not good because you really have enough HP with that build and even some lifesteal.

Promote is at best use for Support.

Smite is only for jungle I think.

Surge is a jungle spell too I think.

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
The sequence is

R>Q>W>E

because you will need the lifesteal first with Hungering Strike,then,because its a more tanky build,you should get Hunters Call because of the attack speed and last take Blood Scent for movement speed and kill picks.

Items

The Items

Here is a list of items I buy and why:



These shoes I buy because it's good for a tank , the toughness is also handy for Warwick's ultimate.

Sunfire cape I buy because the magical damage is good for Warwick's passive.

Spirit Visage I buy because of Warwick's Lifesteal.

Frozen Mallet I buy because of the good passive,and there is damage and life because I did indeed play him on AD-Offtank.

I buy because it is good against AD Carrys.

I buy it because of the lifesteal and the nice damage.

Farming

The Farming


The farming is easy,activate Hunters Call and get money.

Team Work

Team Work


it's easy,start the teamfights with your Infinite Duress on the AD-Carry so he's down and the rest is tanking your team because you don't die so fast because of your lifesteal.

Summary

So you saw my third buil here,this was a more defensible way to play Warwick,I hope you will have good fights with The Blood Hunter.
I wanna thank jhoijhoi for her Karthus guide.
