Hey just so you know Death Sentence does not have a passive at all, it is Flay that has the passive that does extra magic damage on auto attacks. Death Sentence is only the hook and it doesn't do anything else besides that

To be more accurate, Death Sentences passive got moved over to Flay a while ago. This guide was right at the time of writing, it just needs an update.

Love the guide, but I wouldn't bother with Atma's or Muramana. Thresh's skills are not spamable enough to make the Muramana viable. The Atma's is a pretty big waste in my opinion because a Runic Bulwark or some other team oriented item would be better late game when you have the health to make the Atma's worth it.

Hey anyone try getting some Hybrid Penetration Runes on him for this? If not that then what about Sorcerer Boots for Magic Pen.?

I also think the Shiv helps out a lot early on, it gives his first hit that extra 100 damage which really scares people off and has gotten me plenty of kills due to constant harassing and poking when the shiv AND passive are both charge.

And how does ap AND ad vamp do with him?

Just throwing some ideas out there.

Just tried this guide out on TT for my first game with Thresh, totally dominated and ended up with a whopping 16-1-8. I thinx it's so good I decided to create an acc on moba just to commend the creator. Thx for an excellent guide!

first time played with the guy, never good at last hitting minions either, and it was against beginner bots, but i followed this guide and really like it man, hella awesome

Start of with sayin nice guide. but just one quick lil thing passed my mind; Why no Blade Of The Ruined King? Thresh has the some of the LOWEST base AD and he aint quick at all.
Thresh need ATTACK SPEED inorder to deal dmg with q passave. BOTRK offers that aswell.
The Passive of BOTRK deals lota ekstra dmg not depending on your own attack dmg. It offers a slow.
Only downside; thresh could also use spell vamp bevause of high ap dmg. and 2. Thresh dosent deal too much dmg for life steal to RLY become effective.

Very nice guide.. Have just tried it out, though I rushed Trinity Force cause I'm opsessed with that item. But rushing trinity force, and afterwards going for wits end and warmog's works very well and will make Thresh deal huge amounts of damage! ;)
Very good guide, can recommended Trinity Force.

You'd be better off taking the points out of Perseverance and 1 point out of Resistance for Unyielding and Block, especially in top lane.

I'd add Lee Sin and Akali to the tough opponents list, you're very strong at last hitting but can't match them in wave clear without going oom and they can both dive you under turret. You'll need a jungle babysit to avoid losing your tower very early on.

I've done some trials with Muramana and would say not to bother, Trinity Force is a good buy though.
Defensive Boots, Bloodthirster, Phage and Hexdrinker and the game should be over.

Be playing with this build every time i play thresh and i love it
Looking forward to see the Finished build

Also just a general question to everyone playing/using/tinkering with this build do you find some abuse and hate towards having a tank Thresh?

Cheers Dr. Bomm
