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.
Support Warwick: Introduction
Support Warwick is an extremely underated champion, with good reason. In the wrong hands, support Warwick can be useless, without lane, mid or end game, and become a feeder. However, when used to his full potential, he becomes a lane-ganking, carry-slaying, completely invincible r**e machine. His natural tankiness, combined with his ability to destroy anything anything in his path (espescially Annie), makes him an awesomely powerful Support. He can buff his carry, has tons of sustain, and also had the rare ability to murder EVERYONE. In EVERY lane. ALL the time.
When playing Support Warwick, you're gonna want to be roaming soon after you hit six, as by this point, you should have already obliterated your lane, and should be hungrily(hehe) looking at the other lanes, and the jungle. However, as much as Support WW has hilarious movespeed potential, moving between lanes does take some time, and you don't want to fall behind on gold during this time. For this reason, Avarice Seals and Quints are perfect. You also want to be using your Q as much as possible, for maximum sustain AND harass, AT THE SAME TIME. NERF DAT GUY, RIOT. So obviously, you need a bit of mana regen to do the spammings. Hence the Replenishment seals. The Potency Glyphs give you EVEN MORE SUSTAIN AND HARASS, TRANSFORMING YOU INTO EVEN MORE OF A TEAM CRUSHING WOLF-MAN-MONSTER. Then for that extra bit of tankiness, Resilience Marks.
The Masteries aren't really that important. Mana-regen for EVEN MORE HILARIOUSLY BROKEN AND OP SUSTAIN, HARASS AND GENERAL BUTT-F**CKERY. The Gold for the same reason as the runes. And then the Defensive Tree just to ensure you can't be stopped.
Start Faerie Charm, 3 Sight Wards, and 2 Health Pots. The Faerie Charm gives you spam on your Q, the Wards mean you can see the Jungler coming, and, of course, destroy him. And the pots mean you can win those early man-fights by counter acting ignite with you pots. Then you smash him with your Q, obviously. Get some boots next, so you can roam better early. Next, a Philo Stone will give you more mana/health regen, meaning you cna save your Q for raping enemies really super hard, rather than mere sustain and mild rape. Wits End and Spirit Visage mean no-one can kill you, so no-one can keep you from analy pulverising those enemy carries. Beserker Greaves then gives you more roam/kill power, and Shurelyas gives you EVEN MORE SPEED, AS IF YOUR E AND W WEREN'T HILARIOUSLY MUCH ALREADY, aswell as more health. Finally, Randuins and Thornmail, so you can rpae an entire enemy team just by your mere presence.
When playing Support WW, max Q first, for killing/harassing/sustaining your enemies and yourself, respectively. Max W second, for more DPS on you and your carry, allowing you to sustai n yourself and your carry even more, and ultimately leading to the annihilation of the enemy bot lane. Obviously, take your ult whenever possible, so you can kill everyone in every lane. Finally, max your E to track down those potentially sneaky ******s who might escape on low health.
This is really a matter of preference. I like Heal Flash. Heal for extra carry protection, as they may not always understand the power of Support WW, and so may play like a ******. Flash for beastly over-the-wall-q-your-scumbag-hide-for-the-kill-plays. However, Ignite, Exhaust, Teleport and Ghost are all viable on Support WW.
Laning: Playing extremely aggressively, use your Q to harass the oppenents, finally finshing with auto attacks, followed by a Q-dive and a flash away from turret. Perhaps give your carry an assist. Perhaps. Repeat this procedure until fed. Once fed, roam from lane to lane, killing as you go. This will become easier after 6. Continue roaming until an opportunity to take a tower presents itslef. Take it. Keep killing and pushing until the game is won. GG
