Choose Champion Build:
Warwick is a really nice champ, his passive gives him something like lifesteal, his Hungering Strike can be used to esily get kills or to survivie hard fights, and his Blood Scent and Infinite Duress makes you a killing machine. There are two versions of build: build which I use, and build suggested for normal laning, especially solo topping.
+ Good lifesteal
+ Nice survivability
+ Easy and fun to play
+ Great ganks above level 6
+ Chasing enemies with Blood Scent
- Self-stun ultimate
- Mana hungry before buying mana regeneration item
- His ultimate can be stopped
This is my runes setup.
Greater Mark of Scaling Attack Damage: It gives you AD, so it means more damage
Greater Seal of Attack Speed: Gives you some attack speed, which is also important on Warwick, because you can steal life or kill faster
Greater Seal of Scaling Attack Damage: Just like in Mark of Might
Greater Glyph of Scaling Attack Damage: Like up
Greater Glyph of Attack Speed: Giving attack speed
Greater Quintessence of Life Steal: It gives you lifesteal, which makes you real Warwick.
This is suggested rune setup.
Greater Mark of Scaling Attack Damage: It gives you AD
Greater Seal of Scaling Attack Damage: It gives you AD too (it's surprising, isn't it?)
Greater Glyph of Scaling Attack Damage: It also gives you AD!
Greater Glyph of Attack Speed: That rune gives you attack speed, I explained why it is important before.
Greater Quintessence of Scaling Attack Damage: AD...
W: Hungering Strike: It gives you and nearby allies boost to attack speed. Really good when soling something, great when doing solo Dragon or solo Baron, great when pushing turrets, and really, really great in teamfights, because all your allies have buff. It also helps you when you're ganking someone, because you can kill him faster.
E: Blood Scent: Skill that didn't need to be maxed. Just one point at level 4. It makes you a killing machine. When enemy has low health, you see him, even, when he is hiding, and you have movement speed boost. When somebody with low health hears Warwick's cry, he can only pray...
R: Infinite Duress: Your ultimate attack. It makes you jump on your enemy, stun him and deal 5 hits. When using this attack, you gain 20% lifesteal, and your 5 attacks triggers on-hit attacks (like Madred's Bloodrazor), which makes this skill a really dangerous attack. Perfect for ganks, but you shouldn't initiate a normal fight with it. It should be used to kill fleeing enemies.
But in suggested build, after Boots and three potions, you should buy Doran's Blade, because of AD, Health and lifesteal, which grants you more survivability at the beggining. After it, you should buy Berserker's Greaves, it gives you attack speed, and it's the best boot for ww. Then, you should buy Wriggle's Lantern, because Armor, AD and Lifesteal, and it can be used as a ward. It's a really nice item. Then, you should buy Recurve Bow, later, you will build Madred's Bloodrazor from it. Then, you should buy Frozen Heart, because it grants you Armor, which, in conjuction with your great AD and lifesteal, makes you really strong in teamfights and in 1v1 fights! Then, you should build Madred's Bloodrazor, then Guardian Angel, armor, magic resistance and it's ability to revive you is really nice, because you will be focused ine teamfights. And finally, Trinity Force, because it gives you boost to AD, AP and AS, and it also gives you slow effect, that is triggered on your target when you use your ultimate, so it's a perfect ending item that.
Thanks to jhoijhoi for this great guide about creating a guide! Without it, this guide would look like only text, with no images, colored text, or something like that.
