whenever i play thresh i fail hardless now i understand why, in this guide and as i have seen the ability sequances, i always max first the lantern because of the shield it gives with the ardent i dont build relic shield on thresh because it doesnt fit to him i mean to me cause his ranged and he doesnt excute minions below 300hp and i have low basic damage, i'll try the hook boost first and see, ty my friend :D

Really good Thresh guide! Such an unseen character from what I know and his surprise ganks and large stuns are vital to winning teamfights. How do you think he stacks up with other supports though? Especially ones that can also grab and pull opponents such as Blitzcrank? I personally think he's got more efficient tools and is more capable than Blitz to do a lot of things that a support needs but would love your opinion.

In comparison to other supports, he has the most versatility, utility, and play-making potential. Blitzcrank relies on landing a Rocket Grab for his combo, but if he misses, he's basically useless for making picks until his Q is off CD. Nautilus is another hook support not seen as often, but his Depth Charge still gives him some use if he misses his hook. Thresh is the most capable support of hook champions. In terms of other supports, it's heavily depending on the meta. Back when Lulu and Karma were strong, he was decent but still ran into trouble. He's arguably one of the strongest supports right now, aside from other champs like Janna.

yes, my comment below are because i saw how blitz can grab put down and hit to kill, i guess thresh is not like that its more about trap and slow. and much more tankier than blitz. thresh ultimate used well can bring down a hole team. I guess it is more beneficial to team. not to mention lantern which is the ultimate life saver.

Blitzcrank is a pick machine who relies on his Rocket Grab/ Power Fist (and Static Field combo. And while Thresh's The Box is powerful, it'll only damage and heavily slow one target. If you use all your abilities and actives together team fights tend to be pretty much clean ups.

i do not understand all of the AD runes you stack there! i would go with AP or magic pen. and for purples i go with CD reductions or ap.

There isn't much of a need to get AP runes, your passive gives you AP which scales at the same rate as the armor you receive from it. Magic Pen. isn't necessary as your goal is not to be outputting damage. AD runes give you strong poking ability in the early levels, making your Flay empowered autos that much more painful. As for purples, you need early armor to offset the extremely low starting armor that Thresh has. CDR is important on him, but not so much so that you need to waste Quint spots on it. If you really want to take them, make sure to go the cost effective way and take Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction instead.

but fly does not benefit from AD, benefits from AP.

Hi Kilo,
This is a really good guide, you did really good explaining it, but the one thing I noticed is that most of the example builds don't have boots in them, is that because you sell them late game for another item?

Kilo Khaos (12) | July 22, 2017 7:55am
The example builds are to show potential options and itemization based on the enemies composition. Boots are something essential to Thresh, you need it for peeling, chasing, roaming, etc. I'll look into clarifying this in later updates.

Dark Passage is that two-way street, because you need involvement from both players for it to be used effectively. If that's something that genuinely bothers you, I recommend Tahm Kench. No lanterns to be clicked, just people to be Devoured.

hello kilo i would like to say that i am trying to be a thresh main because he is just so fun a suggestion that i have for you is that you make up a proper chart on how to deal with you possible match ups (i.e to deal with Xayah do this this and this and her threat lvl is 1-10 just a suggestion and thank you for this amazing guide

There already is a matchup section, right before the Table of Contents. You'll need to press 'Show All', because the list of matchups is rather long.

I would love to try this awesome build but the only thing i don't have is the 4 8 plus runes is there any other runes i can use? or is it have to be this exact rune page for tank thresh?

Kilo Khaos (12) | May 29, 2017 5:59pm
I'm not sure what you mean by "4 8 plus runes", comment back what you mean so I can explain further.

As for other options for runes, they're listed in the Runes section of the guide.

I meant the Four 8+ yellow rune that are 820 each.
