Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Ive played with players who doesn't know how to play Warwick properly. They were buying the "recommended items". In good hands Warwick becomes a GREAT initiator/nuke/chase champ. His ultimate is doing massive damage late game as well as helps A LOT of your teammates and gives them time to nuke down biggest threat target without any problem.
In fleeing, he isn't a very good escape champ.(except if you can lower your opponent's hp to 50% and u have Blood Scent active). The Benefit from Blood Scent will be awesome. Sometimes players go really berserk trying to get that last hit land to kill you, being hit by the tower, you can simply Scent-kite them around the tower till death.
I picked my 2 free abilities as Smite and Ignite. Smite is good for jungling and Ignite is good for killing champs that tries to get away/escape with low health. (We all know that Ignite is ANNOYING so feel free to annoy your enemy's teram as long as u want! This might give you and your team an edge in the mid game)
Eternal Thirst - Each of Warwick's attacks will heal him for 5/10/15 health. Each successive attack against the same target will restore increasing amounts of health to Warwick.
Hungering Strike- Takes a bite out of enemy unit for damage and heals Warwick.
Strikes an enemy for the greater value between 75/125/175/225/275 (+1) and 8/11/14/17/20% of the target's maximum health (can only do flat damage to monsters), and heals Warwick for 100% of the damage dealt.
Hunters Call - Warwick lets out a howl, increasing all nearby friendly champions' attack speed for a short time.
Warwick lets out a howl that inspires all nearby allied champions. This increases Warwick's attack speed by 40/50/60/70/80% and all nearby friendly champions' attack speed by half of that for 10 seconds.
Blood Scent - Warwick passively senses weakened enemy champions around him. The scent of blood sends him into a fury causing him to move at incredible speeds.
Toggle: Warwick senses enemy champions under 50% life within 1500/2300/3100/3900/4700 distance of him; while he detects a low-health enemy, he gains 20/25/30/35/40% Movement Speed.
Infinite Duress - Warwick lunges at an enemy Champion, suppressing his target and dealing damage for a few seconds.
Warwick lunges at an enemy Champion, suppressing his target for 1.7 seconds. While they are suppressed, Warwick quickly strikes the target 5 times for 33% of his attack damage plus 40/60/80. Warwick gains an additional 30% lifesteal while performing Infinite Duress.
Early Game- I usually go kill the 2 golems then clear the camp (but do not kill the Lizard YET.) Then i go kill the wolves and get the Golem buff. After I get the golem buff I go kill the Lizard and clear the camp. Then after that I go to the enemy's camp to get the golem buff and kill the wolves. Then clear your camp that has neutral monster in it. That time you're probably in lvl 6 or 7.
Mid Game- You should roam around map, killing neutral creeps for buffs, cash, exp. Pushing big waves of creeps back. Killing dragon each time he spawns (6 min respawn timer?). This time you should start ganking champions. I usualy start gank the bot or top (whoever lane has the 1 vs 2) and I buy 3 wards and put wards in the map. My First ward is where the bush near the dragon is(the one bush). The second ward is the bush near Baron ( the one bush). My last ward is the enemy's jungle camp where the 4 creeps are (the bush there that is near the enemy's 2nd tower in mid)
Late Game- This is the team fights time. Make sure your team picks the most damaging champ from other team, so you can initiate the team fight by using ur ultimate/stunning him and letting your team finish him off in those 2-3 secs. After that, kill every enemy that u want. Don't forget to buff yourself and your teammate with Hunters Call. Also Try to Chase down running away cowards, and EAT THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, this is my build and i hope you guys like it and I hope you guys enjoy playing as Warwick.
Remember Warwick is the King Of The Jungle! So ALWAYS play him as a Jungler. But some people likes to play him as a NON-Jungler but thats Fine.
