Summoner Spells Back to Top

These spells seem to be working best in lane. One could argue that Ghost is really effective on Warwick but I find it's just not worth replacing flash or exhaust with. Flash is just better in lane and more reliable. Exhaust is too good for keeping yourself or your teammates alive in those bot lane brawls.

Masteries Back to Top

A page balanced around the idea of Warwick possibly being harassed early by ranged attacks and it still sustains well if you go all in helping you tank damage longer for your marksman.  Using this mastery page and leveling your skills in the order I listed makes him harder to kill early. Overall if you're winning lane you can be more aggressive with this page and if you are losing you can play defensive under tower well. Might even stand a chance of baiting them into tower dives and sustaining them.

Moral of the story is learn your champion well and bait. Bait all day. If you're winning then bait. If you are losing lane call for jungler and bait. Just bait all over the place. Grasp of the undying + Q + E are great tools for baiting enemies into bad ideas.

Your goal is to be a damage sponge for your ADC and keep him alive while sustaining the initial burst of engages. 
I find that starting E and rushing points into it early makes it easier to survive in lane. Sitting at 45% damage reduction will hold you defensively for a while. It allows you to bait for your ADC and Jungler and possibly tower dive effectively early.

From there you level up your Q.  Then level W or E at the proper levels to benefit from the stats you will most likely need at that point in the game. Always take R warwickr.png when you can.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with these

Core Items

    These are the Core items
    Don't forget to switch to a red trinket and upgrade it when available after you pick up a sightstone.

Situational Items

    Instead of getting a Guardian Angel you can choose one of these more supportive items and help bring some utility.
    Other boots to consider

This is what your inventory should look like building core early. (if it goes well)
You should be completing these items from left to right and if you can complete an item early then it goes without saying do it. If you are behind and completing items late then just keep progressing as shown.

~Note~
These three items are your bread and butter in early game. While the build order may seem quite random it's actually really well thought out based on what Warwick seems to need most at that exact point and time in his building path. Once all 3 of these items are finally completed you can Build your 3065.png & 3742.png. While I do recommend 3065.png First it's pretty situational which one you might feel the need to build first. So is the items leading into  them. Hit tab often and think about what's best to counter and tank your opponents. If you are looking to survive a little longer pick up the 3026.png as your last item. Or you could build one of the mentioned situational items instead.

Tips for Warwick Support Back to Top

Try not to over commit yourself early. Only go in when you can use E. If you don't think you are going to land the fear then pull out before you get punished. It's very important that you absorb the burst of an engage with your damage reduction buff on. Not to mention the fear helps secure kills or escapes.

If your ADC has backed or died and no one is pushing in on your tower I suggest possibly roaming instead of backing yourself. Warwick is able to respond helping Jungler and Mid faster than most supports due to his W move speed buffs. Your champion is still a glorified party pooper. Gank people when you see the opportunity.

Don't however roam around leaving your ADC in lane alone for the lane phase. He is still your VIP. If you want to roam or respond to something make sure he knows you are leaving lane for a brief moment. This allows you to respond and he can play safer. But don't abandon him completely. You aren't a Jungler this game!

If you happen to be coming out of base after backing and your W allows you to respond to a Mid fight or Jungler encounter I suggest stopping by to say hello before returning to lane. Even just showing your face other places puts pressure on enemy players.

You will find your W gives you bonus move speed often thanks to other laners getting low outside of bot. Abuse this and go out and ward dragon or river quickly and come back into lane. Also If done correctly you can use the bonus move speed to bait and dodge enemy spells before engaging. The faster you move the harder you are to hit. 

I find Warwick works really well with 222.png 202.png110.png67.png.

222.png Has a pretty well rounded kit. She can play defensively or aggressive quite well. Her being able to lay traps under the feet of the one Warwick just feared or ulted combos well.

202.png Is just a monster. He can easily snare someone for you or snare them after Warwick ults/fears.  It's hard to run away when Jhin is ult/slowing you and Warwick is clawing into your back. 

110.pngA fantastic pick to keep other long ranged supports away from your Warwick. He has high burst and an ult that combos extremely well with Warwicks kit. His e helps Warwick out sustain his enemies. 

67.png If you get wall pinned by her E then expect to be Warwick ulted right after. If you get Warwick ulted then expect to get wall pinned. Either way you are probably dead. Her E is also good at pushing people off your Warwick if he needs to retreat.  She can keep up with Warwick when he is pursuing a target better than most thanks to her bonus move speed. You both love to chase down people.

I recommend you don't play Warwick support vs 63.png 143.png1.png14.png It's just a really bad time.
