Threats & Synergies
Jax is also one of the best top lane duellist and can avoid your damage with his E making it hard for you to do anything. You can't beat him late game, but you might get a few opportunities after level 6. Don't try before that
Impossible to kill, she just runs away and charms you and you die, fun
Black Shield completely counters your E and R. Her ult and Q can kite you which can lead to a death if she has backup
Olaf is a pain in the butt to duel because after level 6, he can easily remove your ultimate. Your E will basically only be useful for the damage reduction, and he can possibly out-sustain you if he's low.
Hard to duel as well because of his sustain and attack damage removal, try to poke him with some Q's before finding an opportunity to Smite + Jump R
It might seem difficult to lane against Darius, but the key is just to bait his Q while trying to go for a minion. Wait for 6 to duel him
A pain in the butt too, W and annoying poke.
He just doesn't want to die
A bit annoying but he can't really kill you so.....
He can bully you early, but he can't 1v1 at level 6 or once you get Bloodrazor
Lulu can give you a nice movement speed/attack speed buff which is everything that you want. Since you're often fighting, her tools are great to assist you
Zilean can give you a nice movement speed buff as well as a free revive, since you will often just run in. Even if you don't die, it will buy you some time to deal damage
Champion Build Guide
I am nanosako, and I used to be a top 40 player in season one. I played League since the beginning, eventually peaked challenger in season 4 and master in season 5. Since then, I only play for fun since I don't have time for competitive anymore. I only live for spicy things to play and Smite Warwick top is a really fun duellist ! I hope I can convince you with this guide.
Warwick is a really cheap and easy champion. Which makes him the perfect candidate for climbing or just playing fun games without thinking too much.
The goal of this guide is to introduce you to a new way of playing Warwick, it won't teach you the basic mechanics of the game and where to be, and what to do at a given point of the game.
I hope you enjoy the guide.
It gives you a bit of sustain when you are low on health but also damage on every auto attack. Gives a nice boost of health when you cash your ultimate when you're low.
Jaws of the Beast
Warwick Q is nice because it gives you more sustain that you can use on minions or enemy champions. If you hold it on the enemy, you will follow them when they're running.
Probably our best friend here. It has many utilities.
When enemies are low, your attack speed bonus is a nice boost to your damage. Let's not forget the movement speed bonus on all low health enemies on the map (out of combat). You can activate it before jumping on your enemy with your ultimate ability.
What an interesting ability. You can stick to your enemy with that but also tank their damage which will make you really annoying in duels. In can also fear everyone else around you, really good for attacking, or running away.
Press smite and R.
- Warwick is easy to play (no skillshots, only ult)
- Good CC with Primal Howl and Infinite Duress
- Infinite Duress isn't affected by Mercury's Treads
- Infinite Duress applies on-hit effects
- Sustain isn't bad
- Gameplay is kind of limited.
- Ignite can be annoying against Warwick.
- Farming and Wave clearing can be difficult
- Easy to counter
In some rare situations, you can smite before or after your ult, depending on enemy's cooldowns so you can also benefit from the damage reduction.
As Warwick, you can easily 1v1 with this build. Which makes you good for split pushing. Since you can snowball really hard, you will most likely draw the attention of at least 1 or 2 opponents on the lane. If you see that the situation will be bad for you, use your ultimate as an escape (sometimes just E will be enough).
