I play as a Tank and I love tanking. I was here on mobafire looking for a new tank to play, and when I activated the "tank" filter I saw Warwick on the list.

Then I saw that there really are guides for a tank Warwick. How can it be viable? Warwick has no skills for protection or initiation and his only CC is his Ult.

Yeah, his passive gives him a great sustain in lane, but Warwick is a awesome offensive champ, and I think it would be a waste to buy Tank itens to someone who has his great attack potential.

-Almost no melee champions in this game work without building somewhat tanky because otherwise they die in one second.
-He doesn't scale well with either AP or AD, having only one AP scaling and one AD scaling.
-His Q does scale with enemy health, so he gets some damage regardless of what he builds.

Basically the only viable way to build him is tanky with on-hit. How else would you build him?

I agree with Luther and you say no initiation? Hum derpiderp you use his ult to last hit? Building him bruiser is the only way man

Please, understand the difference between Tank and bruiser/off-tank:

Tanks:
- usually play on duo lane.
- they must protect the carries
- they don't get kills
- they have CC
- they must attract the atention to themselves on team fights

Bruisers/Off-tanks:
- can play solo or duo lane
- able to stay on lane for a long time
- noticeable resistance
- good damage output
- they get kills

Warwick is one excelent Bruiser/ Off-tank (and no one can deny it) but some guys are wasting his potential by building an all-defensive warwick, destined to protect carries.
This is what pisses me off!

Well actually every decent player on a decent level builds WW tanky, if not full tank. Especially after the wits end nerf.

off-topic, does anyone of you ever build trinity force on him?

Don't agree with any of this, lol.

I just went like 7/1 with Nautilus and built 3 GP10 items. Oh and I jungled.

And guess what, I was still a tank!

IMO a great build for WW is Aurawick! FH, Aegis, Zekes, (Abyssal or any MR item, even Spirit Visage)!

P.S, a tank's job is not to distract attention, lol what kinda noobs focus a tank anyway? Your job is to CC and peel, and disable, so that the opponent CANNOT focus the carry.

Tanks don't play on duo-lane; who said that?

bot lane (duo) is often a support + ADC
The support doesn't have to be a tank. Soraka Sona Janna aren't tanks

Most "tanks" don't even exist anymore in this game. People build offtank items on pretty much every champ now.
The only "tanks" that I know of build auras.

Bruisers and offtanks peel off enemies from your carries too.

Most people build WW with CDR and tankiness.

Haha, Duff goes on and on about that Aurawick :P

Also a tanky WW who stalks the enemy AD-Carry and forces them to kite instead of auto attacking is really annoying..
problem?
