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.
Bla, bla ****ing bla!
Eternal Thirst - Each of Warwick's attacks will heal him for 6 / 12 / 18 health. Each successive attack against the same target will stack this amount of healing to Warwick up to a maximum of 3 stacks per strike. The stacks remain for 4 seconds.
This is a skill that allows Warwick to jungle from lvl 1 very efficiently.
Simple, you hit a target = you get health, even without lifeseal.
TIP: Get 3 hits before triggering Hunter's Call for maximum effectivness on Buff Creeps or Dragon.
Hungering Strike - Takes a bite out of enemy unit for damage and heals Warwick.
Strikes an enemy for the greater value between 75/125/175/225/275 (+1 per ability power) and 8/11/14/17/20% of the target's maximum health (can only do flat damage to monsters), and heals Warwick for 100% of the damage dealt.
Cooldown - 10/9/8/7/6 seconds
Cost - 60/70/80/90/100 Mana
Range - 400
Take note this is a 400 range skill. It's great for keeping yourself alive, while facing other team carry champ. You maybe have lower damage, lower or 0 lifesteal that time, but with this... he will be down before you are, and he will probably start to run away... worst thing you can do while facing warwick XD. You should use it right after ultimate and to finish off that last fiew points of health.
After maxing out that skill you can use it to get health back after a team fight in the jungle and get back to fight without beeing forced to go to base.
Also abuse this skill to get lasthits on enemy champions. You are not farming much creeps so getting kills is essencial.
Hunters Call - Warwick lets out a howl, increasing all nearby friendly champions' attack speed for a short time.
Warwick lets out a howl that inspires all nearby allied champions. This increases Warwick's attack speed by 40/50/60/70/80% and all nearby friendly champions' attack speed by half of that for 10 seconds.
Cooldown - 30/27/24/21/18 seconds
Cost - 35/35/35/35/35 Mana
Range - Self + 1200 AoE
A great AS boost skill that can help your team to bring towers in no time. As you are a proc monster this gives you great synergy later on.
This should be taken as 1st skill and lvled last due to AS itemisation focus early game.
Blood Scent - Warwick passively senses weakened enemy champions around him. The scent of blood sends him into a fury causing him to move at incredible speeds.
Warwick senses enemy champions under 50% life within 1500/2300/3100/3900/4700 distance of him; Upon sensing an enemy at low life he will gain 20/25/30/35/40% Movement Speed.
Cooldown - 4 seconds
Cost - Passive/Toggle
Range - 1500/2300/3100/3900/4700
Blood Scent is a best ingame skill for catching fleeing enemy champs, as well as running away from a loosing battle (if one of their champs have <50% hp).
This should ALWAYS be picked at lvl 4 and maxed out together with Hungering strike and ulti.
You should be able to get som1 to <50% with your Ulti+HS combo, witch enables Blood Scent and just run and kill. So you can call it a passive movement speed increase :P.
It also reveals any enemy player that you have scented on map even in bushes.
It will enable itself if you have a <50% stealter near you as well. But you will not be able to see them anyway.
Remember this is a toggle spell. If you want to get close to your prey unnoticed, toggle it off close the distance and toggle on when you are accualy going to attack. Watch out on this toggle tho, it has a 4s internal cooldown.
Infinite Duress - Warwick lunges at an enemy Champion, stunning them and dealing damage for a few seconds.
Warwick lunges at an enemy Champion, stunning them for 1.7 seconds. While they are stunned, Warwick quickly strikes the target 5 times for 33% of his attack damage plus 40/60/80. Warwick gains an additional 30% lifesteal while performing Infinite Duress.
Cooldown - 90/80/70 seconds
Cost - 100/125/150 Mana
Range - 700
Your ultimate is ultimate :)
This is your big range stun+damage spell. The damage is high becouse it has a flat amount of damage added and scales of bonus AD. It applies on hit effects on each "hit" through the duration. This is the main cause why Warwich should use procing itemisation like Madred's Bloodrazor.
Considering that you will get 5 hits from ult and at least 1 melee hit after the ulti:
That means you will get 6x4% from Bloodrazor, you will get 6x42mana=42damage from writs end, 5 stacks of Black cleaver debuff just in 1 ultimate atack. Sick!
with all that damage it will calculate in more or less this:
200Atack = 66 per atack
6x66 damage = 396
6x4% max health (example 2000 Health) = 6*80 = 480
6x42 mana = damage = 252
Total 1128 damage.
Target is debuffed with 3 stacks of black cleaver so bye bye armor, and he will be below 50% for sure if not, than 1 HS will do the job. Just execute than.
(i know there are magic resistances and armor **** bla bla bla, this was just an example).
Lvl up this skill on lvl 6/11/16 always when it's avaible.
Get golem neutral buff to lower down it's cd all the way. Gank whenever it's up. Catch players near tower with it to maximize the damage they recieve.
Think of clever usage of blink+ulti from the jungle.
