Summoner Spells Back to Top

3.png : Take this if you want to be a good support . It's very effective against assassins or just to reduce ennemy's adc damages in lane .

14.png: You can also take this if your mid laner has already taken exhaust . It can be good against ennemy ADC's heal.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

New Masteries are here ! I'm going 0/12/18 because Thresh is a tanky support over an utility support so playing with more points in Resolve is better in my opinion. Masteries are easier to make in this preseason , there are less choice with two choice only for every tier of masteries and 3 choices for keystone then . I think there is other possibilities than these but I like the Strength of the Ages on Thresh because Thresh is a champion that gain passively armor and with this mastery you will also gain passively maximum health so you will get tanky very early in the game . I think this mastery is generally very good for every tank in the game because carry champions snowball hard  , a tanky champ that get tanky early will can slow the snowball of the ennemy team's carry .

I recommend to max E because it allows you to harass with a lot of damages and have easier last hits with your relic shield. If you want to max Q you can , it's not that bad because it reduce the cd on it but if you do put a second point in your E at level 4.



Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Classic start for a tanky supp . There's no ward anymore and no mana pots anymore too . I don't think taking a pink to start is a good idea so yeah go with this start.
    Take this at your first back because from this moment ennemy jungler can gank at every moment and will be able to do drake alone maybe.

Core Items

    It's your core . With this you will be able to have some damages when you go in and also the mobility to roam . You will also be tanky enough for the first fights and you can protect your adc with Face of the mountain's shield.

Situational Items

    Armor . Take Randuin against melee champions and frozen heart against high attack speed champions. You can also take Dead Man's Plate if you think you gonna need movement speed.
    Magic Resist . Take spirit visage if ennemy team don't have a lot of cc . Take banshee if they have a lot .
    You can also take this . It allows you to catch someone in ennemy team easily . It's also good for a quick engage .
    Good Option against full AD team or an hyper carry AD fed.
    The new Zeke can really be good . Be carefull it does not give a lot of armor but with this you and your adc will do tons of damages . I recommend making this after you have enough tankyness

About my start , some of you may not agree with my 2 potions of mana so I will explain . I take 2 potions of mana because I like to play very aggressive and that's why I use my hook a lot even when it's very hard for me to hook someone just trying makes ennemy's bot lane playing less aggressive . They willn't stay in range of your hooks if they see you use it often . It's my way of zoning them without greeding . If they don't play safer I will finally hook one so this is still worth . But this playstyle cost a lot of mana that's why I take 2 potions of mana .



Wanted to add things about Righteous Glory , my thoughts on the item is that it's great but if you're the only tank of your team I recommend not taking this item because this item don't give you a lot of tankyness.


With the 5.14 Patch the Zeke has been reworked , I wanted to talk about it on Thresh. So in my opinion this is a really strong item on Thresh because it can boost the auto-attacks of Thresh himself in addition of the auto-attacks of his ally . Because of the passive of his E his auto-attacks deal a lot of damages and with the zeke it has 50% chance to crit. You don't have to rush it though , buy some tanky items first like a randuin , a frozen heart or a sunfire with your Face of the moutain and your sighstone and it should be okay.

Preseason : Not too much changes to supports . But still new masteries and you will have one more slot in your inventory while you can mix your support item with your sightstone . Also there is changes on the vision system , no more ward so you will depend on your sighstone early so just take it first back as mentionned . Not much to say this season there isn't really lot of changes for support so Thresh is still the same .

If you have any questions about the stuff ask in the comments and I will add explanations here.

VS

Alistar

Medium

Could be boring but you can flay his heabutt , you will need to have good reflexes or he will cc you so hard that his adc will rekt you hard.

VS

Annie

Hard

I think everybody know what is Annie support , she just has to Tibbers you with the stun to ruin all your plays . You hook her adc and engage ? No problem a Tibbers and your mid life and stunned for three days .Even if you hook her if you don't OS her she will ult and you will die.

VS

Bard

Easy

He's very squishy . Harass him a lot and if you hook him he's dead so enjoy this lane .

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

Pretty easy for Thresh . If Blitz grab your ADC just use your lantern  , if he comes to E your adc just flay him . It's also not a problem if you hook him , he is pretty squishy early game so if he's greeding kill him .

VS

Braum

Medium

He can take your hooks instead  of his ADC . Braum is melee so you can harass him when he comes last hit with his relic shield . Don't hesitate to flay and hook him if he become to greedy .

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

She has a very long range so that you can't harass her and she will punish you when you try to last hit creeps with your relic shield. With her E she can dodge your hook . You will have to be passive against her or you will get rekt .

VS

Corki

Medium

He will be hard to catch because of his valkyrie but since it has a high cost of mana and a long cd try to force him to use it without using your hook . Be carefull not be too greedy or you will be punished .

VS

Draven

Easy

He has a short range so you don't even have to try hooks in many case , just go in and flay him so you can hook him easily after . He's also pretyy easy to harass because of his short range but be carefull because he has a lot of damages even early game.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

This champ will test your skill at hooking . In this matchup you have to be Madlife. Nope just kidding , actually force him to use his E  when you can and punish him if he use it to go in . If you are really good at hooking you can try to Madlife him .

VS

Graves

Medium

Graves has a lot of burst but can't auto attack you if you're behind creeps so just stay behind creeps , dodge his Q and continue harassing him.

VS

Janna

Medium

You have to try things before level 6 on her because she's squishy and she will probably shield her ADC so focus her . Take care after level 6 because she can ruin your moves with her ult . Still I believe this match up is good for Thresh so don't worry too much .

VS

Jinx

Medium

Just care about her chompers and try to dodge her zaps and this lane will be okay . She doesn't have any dash so you should be able to hook her pretty easily.

VS

Kalista

Easy

Every Kalista I see always jump in the same direction so just hook where she's about to jump .

VS

Leona

Easy

You can totally control her when she go in just care for her ult .

VS

Lucian

Hard

Pretty hard as he always has his dash , try hooks but don't be too greedy.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

You can easily stop her ult with your cc . Also she doesn't have a dash so it's easy to hook her.

VS

Morgana

Hard

She can easily black shield your hook . Trying some hook plays won't work against her or maybe if you are good at mind game . I recommend trying to go flay them before trying a hook . If you can't I guess you will be passive all the lane . Continue to try hook it will maybe work .

VS

Nami

Medium

When ennemy support is Nami focus her in lane because if you focus the adc she will ruin all your engages .Punish her everytime she greed with your hook.

VS

Nautilus

Hard

This isn't the matchup you're looking for . Nautilus is the king of cc and has a great shield don't even try to go in on him or his ADC , You will just end up dying. You have te bo passive in lane , try some hooks to let your adc harass but never go in or you will regret it . Take care for Nauti's ult he will probably target your ADC with it so don't get hit by the bump and stay between your adc and Nautilus in order to stop him from hooking your ADC. It will probably not happen anything in this lane though so chill , collect your souls , use your relic shield to get gold for your ADC and wait for teamfights.

VS

Sivir

Medium

It's all about mind game . If her support is Morgana you're fucked because you won't be able to do anything .

VS

Soraka

Medium

This champion is unhealthy this preseason . Too much healing . I doubt you can do a thing against this thing early . Later in the game you will have to use at your best your cc's to prevent her from healing till your adc or your team have killed this unicorn.

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

This thing is hard to kill . Focus his ADC but don't forget him because if you let you guard down he will destroy you . Go on his ADC if you can kill him really fast or play passive and prevent Tahm Kench to approach your adc  when you think you can't destroy his adc fast .

VS

Taric

Easy

It will be hard to kill him but you can just ignore him and focus his ADC . Just keep him away of your ADC.

VS

Tristana

Medium

Can be very hard if she doesn't use her jump to greed .

VS

Varus

Easy

Take care to not take too much damages by his Q . Varus still has no escape so easy hooks for you . You can also go at him to flay him if he is out of position but don't greed too much .

VS

Vayne

Easy

She has no range , just flay her if she comes and then it's gg

Pros and cons Back to Top

Pros:

-Polyvalent : Thresh can engage , disengage , protect his team and is really good at catch up.
-Play-Maker : Thresh makes the moves , it's why he can carry so easily.
-Lot of cc : He control ennemy team even when they engage.
-You can play passive or very aggressive.
-Thresh is very tanky late game thanks to his passive.



Cons:
-Skill cap : Thresh is pretty hard to play , the hardest is to aim the hook.
-Thresh can't engage and protect his team at the same time so it's good to have another champion that can engage in your team.

Synergies Back to Top

In my opinion Thresh is good with all the ADC but I will try to explain why he is better with some of them.


51_64.png : Thresh is pretty good with Caitlyn because they can harass a lot . Also Caitlyn with her long range and her E is pretty safe when you engage ennemy's bot lane so she can be in free dps. You can also push an ennemy in a trap.

222_64.png: Thresh is also pretty god with jinx for the same reasons that with Caitlyn , Jinx is a very strong adc that can harass a lot . She has also a good range et Thresh can push ennemies in her chompers.

104_64.png : Thresh and Graves make a good duo too . In my opinion it's worse than with Jinx or Caitlyn but good too . Graves has a lot of harass and can easily aim his ult with the cc of Thresh.

67_64.png : Vayne is a very strong champion since she can attack withtout taking focus . According to the capacity of Thresh to protect his ADC Vayne can really be in free DPS . This duo is worse than the others because it depending on the capacity of Thresh to control completely ennemy's botlane.

Hard lanes Back to Top

15.png25.png : This is one of the worst match up for you , whatever your adc is you can't do a thing in this lane , just try to dodge Morgana's Q . Don't get harassed too much and don't push a lot , they can't do anything if you are under you tower until Morgana got her Zhonya.


222.png111.png : Every lane with Nautilus is a lane where you will do nothing but this is the worst. If Nautilus hooks you or your adc you will be locked for an eternity . If you see Nautilus approaching prepare you to flay , you have to be really reactive to flay him if he hooks you or your adc.

About me Back to Top

Hello guys , I'm Edwin , Edwonin in game , I'm French so excuse my bad English.


This is actually my first guide. I'm playing a lot Thresh because in my opinion he's really good and doesn't have really "counters" . 

About my ranking I'm actually Gold 5 but I used to be Bronze 5 in Season 3 since this moment I played very often support with Soraka first then Taric and I finally discovered Thresh which is a champion I really like because he is polyvalent and very Play-Maker. It's thanks to him that I'm gold today and I guess I will rise more and more thanks to him .

Thanks for reading this guide , hope it will help , if you have any suggestions tell me in the comments.
