Summoner Spells Back to Top

As 412_64.png what you want to do is basically -> get your carry fed. To do so, you get to choose between 3 sets of summoners spells. I´m going to explain each one of the three combinations in detail.


Always take 4.png as it is the basic summoner spell for almost every champion and it is priceless.

3.png + 4.png This is the standard support spells. Exhaust is good against carrys that depend more on auto attacks in the early game to do damage than spells. For example:  29_64.png 67_64.png 51_64.png 222_64.png 
14.png + 4.png You should take ignite when playing a kill lane, or the enemy adc has escapes and depends more on spells in the early game to do damage than auto attacks, but you must always be focused and don't forget that you won´t have the slow and damage reduction from exhaust. This spell is good to kill champions with escapes, who would run from your exhaust, such as 18_64.png ( tristana's jump ) 236_64.png ( lucian's dash ) 
7.png + 4.png This combination is usefull when you are against a kill lane, when your adc just wants to farm, and when your adc takes cleanse instead of heal. Having 7.png plus your adc 1.png you can get away and proceed to passive farming.

Here I start with threshE.png  if not invading. If the team wants to invade, I start with threshQ.png and get threshE.png level 2.

Choosing  threshE.png at level 1 will provide you a small burst, by auto-attacking the enemy adc, then using  threshE.png to pull them towards you and finnaly auto-attacking again. This happens because the threshE.png passive gets charged and when fully charged deals a lot of damage at level 1. 

You can take half  of their support/adc health and if you adc joins you, you can even get a level 1 kill.

If you fail to get a level 1 kill, do not worry! Try to get level 2 as fast as possible, get your threshQ.png and go for their adc. If you can´t reach the adc go for their support and try to land it.

You can also do this in other way. At level 2 you aproach your enemies and threshE.png them to you, then they get slowed and are easily hooked.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    If you feel like you won´t be needing the shiled from Face of the Mountain, feel free to take coin, as it is better to engage/disengage
    If you don´t need the disengage/engage from the talisman, get this to get shield from face of the mountain
    You can also start with ONE of the support items and go 4 pots if the enemy jungler has weak presence before level 6

Core Items

    VS regular team ( AD top, AD jungle, AP mid, Adc , Supp )
    Don´t forget to change trinkets when you get your sightstone. And don´t forget to upgrade it Also, buy vision wards, to clear baron/dragon
    VS full ad team
    VS Full AP team ( AP top AP mid )
    Mobi boots work aswell. Pretty good to make close saves and for safe warding

Situational Items

    Fell free to pick Mikael´s when your adc needs more protection.
    Pick zeke´s when your team is full ad so the aura has full effectiveness

VS

Alistar

Easy

Don´t hook him, if you do, don´t follow up.

Try to poke, but don´t fight for too long, his cc is huge and the ability to disrupt the fight is also very big

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

If he pulls you, just go all in on their carry.

If he pulls your adc, just lantern them.

VS

Braum

Medium

Dodge his Q and try to poke him whenever you can, he can absorb a lot of damage, but play safe and protect your carry, also try to hook when your jungler is there. 

VS

Gragas

Medium

Pretty even matchup. Both got good cc, try to protect your carry from his stun by standing infront of your adc.

When you see him charging his W, stay back and wait for it to go off

VS

Janna

Easy

Can go both ways. She counters your hard engage with her tornados and also has one of the best disengage skills in the game ( her ult ). Her shield provides good protection from poke, so just wait for gank or try to grab and insta kill her, since she is very squishy

VS

Karma

Hard

Hardest matchup in my opinion. She out-trades you, she pokes you, she provides protection from your hooks. Ask for help from your jungle and just play defensively

VS

Leona

Medium

Even matchup. But thresh has one advantage.

To make use of that advantage, you need to stay close to your adc. When leona is going to engage with her E, use your own E to keep her away, you can do this by pressing E as soon as you see the animation of her E.

VS

Lulu

Medium

This matchup can go either way. She can protect her carry hard, while doing tons of damage. She got one slow which won´t allow you to chase for hooks. Her ult is also very game changing, be aware of that.

Engage only when you know you have level advantage on her, or she doesn´t have mana etc.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Nice counter to thresh, but until level 6 you can just out-damage her. Try to dodge her binds ( pray to juke god ). Once you get lvl 6 becarefull with her ult and use your E to keep her away.

You can bait her blackshield by facing thresh towards both anemies and then hook her or hook the non shielded target.

VS

Nami

Medium

Medium matchup, she has sustain and can peel for her adc very easily. She can out-trade you and out-sustain you.

Play safe or go all in, because she is very squishy.

VS

Sona

Medium

She can poke you hard since her auto attack range is bigger than yours, and she can easily sustain your damage. Either go all in , since she is very squishy, or stay back and just go through laning phase safely

VS

Soraka

Easy

Easy kill if you go all in. If you don´t, she wil poke you with super powerfull bananas and will sustain all your damage. Also, her Q deals a lot of damage, plus her silence and snare can really disrupt your adc. Be carefull, but as I said, it´s easy if you go all in.

VS

Taric

Easy

He doesn´t have that much damage, you can just all in on their adc and it will be an easy kill

VS

Zilean

Medium

He is going to poke hard with bombs. You can kill him easy, once you hook and flay him, there is no escape left, unless flash, but then flash burned #wurf , try again when cds are up

VS

Zyra

Hard

One of the hardest champs to go against, she has more damage than you, she can block hook with well placed plants, she has good disengage/engage. Either go all in and kill her, since she is very squishy, or play super safe.

About Death Ranger Back to Top

Hello, I´m a Portuguese player. And currently I´m Diamond V maining thresh

I play LoL since late season 1
I started playing ranked games late season 2 where I got Bronze.
On season 3 I got silver on my qualification matches and reached gold in the middle of the summer only playing leona.
Later on, I got to Platinum mainly playing Renekton and Jayce. And after, I got to platinum 2 playing lulu and caitlyn.
Season 4 started and I played miserably on my qualifications and ended up gold 3. I got back to platinum only playing thresh and cait. Now I´m Diamond V mainly playing thresh. 
I preffer support but I can go in any lane. I just suck at jungle >.<
