In this edition of the Champion Spotlight, we’ll show you how Thresh, the Chain Warden supports your team with a powerful collection of crowd control abilities, displacement effects and harassing attacks. As a tanky support, Thresh can initiate, disengage and generally disrupt team fights throughout the game. With good communication, Thresh’s ability to control a fight by displacing enemies and repositioning allies can open new avenues of attack and enable epic escapes. In this video, we’ll run through all of his abilities as well as sample runes and masteries, and share a few useful tips you can use to impale your opponents on the warden’s spectral chains.

He really seems to be a nice champ but I'm scared he will be easly countered. I mean, come on, he have 2 CC spells, a Pull/Grab one and the lantern : he relies maybe too much on mobility so going a full CC team with a lot of tenacity against him can just be violent.

He fits equally well on a full CC team himself. honestly, the biggest counter to him will be AD carries not letting him grab souls. Thresh players will need to guage the safety of grabbing them, or go on the offensive early to make the enemies less likely to try too poke him.

Edit: misread part of that, my bad. Ignore my first sentence.

tenacity doesnt affect pulls, knock ups, or knock backs. only the slow of his ult will be affected by tenacity.

Flay has also a slow and for what I can see the pull/push distance isn't that big, so the slow is an important part of the spell. As for the souls, I read somewhere that he can use his lantern to collect them, but I'm not sure that's still actual.

he can, but will you really wanna spend the mana and waste a 20ish second cooldown to grab them?
