Thresh top is OP!

By Riceyboll
I am just a small lad who really likes offmeta champs. I started playing Thresh top and saw how amazing the pick was.
Explaining the runes
Grasp is a good tank rune for Thresh because you can activate it easily and deal some good early damage with it. You can swap and try new things with the rune slot 2 and 3 but i wouldnt recommend changing demolish.

Fleet footwork is also great and now in my opinion it's better than grasp if you want just a little more damage and sustain. You can also use it if you want to go crit Thresh wich does deal alot of damage but you're really weak and in lategame can get oneshotted.
Why Thresh Top?
Thresh top is a great pick because you're tanky, deal surprising amounts of damage with E Passive.
Ranged toplane
Good armor with passive
Good CC
Easy for team to gank with W
E can know enemies back

Cooldowns are high
Learning curve
Squishy champ
Low mobility
Slow MS
Why it works
This build works becaues Thresh with AD scales the passive of Flay, which has a 200% AD Ratio as magic damage on an autoattack when its charged (You can see when its ready, because it goes red).

It takes 10 seconds to fully charge it but you can't auto attack because it resets it. (Turrets don't reset it)

Also Thresh's passive helps with going tank because one soul provides you with 1 Ability Power, 1 Armor and some magic damage.
Thresh Abilities
Damnation is Thresh's passive. Souls will drop from minions, monsters and champions when they die. There is a that a soul drops from small minions and a guaranteed drop from large minions, monsters, and champions.

Thresh's Q is the hook. when you hit your Q Thresh will pull the enemies towards you but if you recast you will swing to the enemys location.

Thresh's W is the lantern. You can use it to help allies escape dangerous situations, surprise attack or give them shield. And also remember to shield yourself and collect Souls from a safe distance.

Thresh E is flay and we discussed it's passive earlier. Flay gives Thresh some CC and its good on top because you can push people at or away from you. The flay starts at the backside you can try in practice grounds what i mean if you don't get it

Thresh's ultimate is The Box. You can use it to secure kills, stall for your team, or just as CC.
Early Game
In early game you want to focus on farming minions and poking the enemy laner. If you're againts a ranged toplane i would focus on farming and not taking too many hits because Thresh's autoattack doesn't have that much range compared to Teemo or Vayne.

If the enemy is really aggressive you should try to keep minions near your tower so you can hook + e the enemy into the turret range and possibly snatch an early lead.
Mid Game
Midgame is easy once you get Tiamat. Tiamat helps with your clearing and gives good damage againts the enemy. If you're losing i would recommend focusing on farming and trying to hook the enemies to tower range. (Don't really have uch to say its quite simple)
This is where Thresh gets to shine. You're really tanky and deal alot of damage with Titanic and Frostfire. But don't just rush to the enemy team that's how you die. Go with your team. use your great CC, get kills and win.
Final thoughts
Thresh top is my main and i would recommebd that you try it and don't flame someone if they are playing it because it truly is a vialable pick.
