Threats & Synergies
This is more of who engages first, while Alistar might have the upper hand in engaging, you would need to predict when he is going to engage ( if Alistar W + Q, you can cancel all Alistar's CC. ) ( If Thresh engages, Alistar can Q + W Thresh into tower. )
Annie can't engage unless she has Flash or Ultimate. Try to punish her before Level 6. There is an indicator when she has stun, watch until Annie has 2 stacks before getting a stun ( Can use her E to gain a stack instantly. )
Easy matchup, you have better CC than Bard and can engage easily at Level 2
Try to block hooks for your ADC, you can hook easier with Blitzcrank pulling you towards his ADC. Try to poke as much in the first 3 Levels with your autos.
Very Squishy, once her shield is off cooldown you are able to go in easily. ( It is possible to cancel her Ultimate instantly if you time your Q or E properly. )
Impossible to hook with Malazhar's Passive and Minions. Try to proc Malazhar Passive with autos and try to Hook Malazhar or his ADC
Morgana's Shield has a very long cooldown, try to abuse it once you have baited out her Shield
Mostly worry about Braum's shield, everything else won't matter to you
Try your hardest to juke Nami's bubble, her utility is what you have to deal with
This is a very hard matchup for Thresh, Brands abilities are mostly used to prevent you from hooking his ADC
Don't worry too much about Lulu before she is 6, as a Thresh you would need to worry about her Polymorph
Karma has poke, stun, and shield that prevents you from Flaying or Hooking the ADC. Try to hook her at level 2 before she gets her 3rd ability
This champion has insane poke early on, however she is extremely squishy and can be dealt with at level 2
Help your ADC shove in the lane at Level 1, this can help you get you Level 2 earlier than the enemy Soraka, so your ADC can get an early first blood because she doesn't have her Heal.
Tahm Kench is known for his peeling, whenever you try to go in for the Hook, Kench will eat his ADC. While you cannot do anything during laning phase unless your Jungler comes, Kench cannot do anything as well.
Try to cheese the opponent ADC before Taric is Level 6. Taric is almost useless in laning phase however, his late game is the most useful phase in the game
There is no Difficulty in playing against another Thresh, it is a game of mechanics. (Whoever has better mechanics = Win ).
Most of the time, you are going to be hooking Zyra's Plants. Zyra can place her plants in any place, therefore making it hard you to hook the ADC or Zyra.
Tons of CC can catch out champions with ease
Has a lantern that can reposition Carries
Flay can cancel lots of abilities such as Corki W, Tristana W, Talon E, etc.
Ultimate and Passive from Flay can deal tons of Damage
Cons: Requires its user to be mechanical
Hook has a delay
You can try to Q+FlashBackwards+Lantern+Q to gain distance on your W
When trying to Lantern your ADC, place the lantern in front of them, not on top of them ( it is going to be harder for them to click on it )
Be sure you ward a lot after you have just bought your Sightstone, it is possible to ward the whole river.
Make sure you always buy Control Wards ( if you have enough space in your inventory ).
- In late game try to catch out enemies with your Hook and Lantern and try to peel your teammates late game so they can continue to deal a ton of damage.
