Summoner Spells Back to Top

Ghost + Ignite- I almost always take this spell combo as it allows you have very good dives and makes chasing a breeze. The ignite is also very essential damage to some of your kills.

Flash + Ignite- Personally I think Ghost > Flash on Midwick but if you prefer Flash, go ahead and take it instead.

Ghost + Barrier- Same as Ghost + Ignite just allows you more survivability in fights instead of extra kill potential.

Flash + Barrier- Same as Flash + Ignite just with survivability instead of extra kill potential.

I usually like to this ability sequence to maximize my early-mid game damage.


Q- You should always max Q first on AP Warwick so you can do damage to your enemies and to have the most lane sustain as possible.

W- I take my first point in W so I can give my jungler a little help via attack speed since you cant really give a good leash otherwise. You want to max this ability last as you do most of your damage early-mid game with your Q and R. Although by the time you are are maxing this ability you will be doing semi-alot of damage via basic attacks.

E- You want to max this ability second as it allows you to chase VERY well and also makes tower diving extremely easy.

R- Put a point in this every time you can. Dont be scared to use your ult as harass because of its short cooldown.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Dorians for the AP, HP, and mana regen. Take 2 mana pots instead of HP pots because your Q is enough sustain in itself.

Core Items

    This item is esential on Midwick because of its AP, MR and Mana Regen. If you are against an AD mid possibly take Morellonomicon instead.
    Very essential item of Midwick as it includes MR and goes well with his W by making his AA's do more damage. Make sure to get this item second or third item.
    You generally want to build 2 of these items as they allow you to survive very long in team fights with your huge sustain.
    Build boots as 2nd or 3rd item to increase your escape and chase ability. Which boots you take is all up to their comp and how well you are doing.
    I like to finish my build off with a Rabadons to increase my damage and increase my sustain in team fights by alot.

Situational Items

    These items can help you alot in fights but generally you do not need to get them and it would be a better choice to not in most cases.
Starting Items- I find it best to start 1056_32.png + 22004_32.png as it makes your Q do a surprising amount of damage early game and the mana regen is amazing. I take the mana potions because you have enough sustain already but you are very mana deficient.

Core- I think I explained why you get those well enough...

Situational3116_32.png can be a very good choice if some of their champions are very mobile as it will allow you to Q them and then AA a few time, rinse and repeat. This items combined with your E makes you almost impossible to get away from. 

3128_32.png can be a good item on Midwick if you want to take out an ADC or APC very quickly. As you Ult does magic damage it is increased by DFG also if you use the combo DFG-Q-R-Q you will probably kills any squishy instantly. You could also do DFG-R-Q and probably kill them also or atleast ge them very low.

3157_32.png can be a great early-mid game item if you are having trouble vs an AD mid. It can also allow you to 'pause' a fight till you have your Q up again.

3290_32.png I wouldnt recommend this item but it can be good in certain instances, eg you are having trouble chasing.

VS

Ahri

Easy

I have never had any problems with Ahri match up, all you have to do is dodge her Charm and she cannot kill you. She is very mobile though so try to coordinate a gank with your jungler to kill her during your ult.

VS

Brand

Medium

I have never been against a Brand as Midwick but just try to rush your Athenes and try to stay behind your minions so he cannot stun you.

VS

Fizz

Easy

Fizz is really slippery but he cannot kill you too easy once you have some MR as you can just Q a minion and you erase all evidence that he ever touched you.


If you know he is about to all in you try to dodge his ult then R onto him and follow with a Q taking this to >50% HP and you walking away almost full.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Annoying match up but not one that you cannot win. Try to dodge as many barrels as possible then use your Ult+ Q combo to take him half HP.


A quick tip to maximizing your Ult+ Q combo is to watch his W passive by clicking on him and before he can refresh it when it goes off of him, Ult + Q him to do more damage then you wouldve done otherwise.

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard

Hard match up as since you are a melee champion you need to get close to CS, and when you get close you have to deal with his OP Turrets. 


I recommend getting a gank as soon as you hit 6 to try to kill him.

Make sure to farm Wraiths whenever they are up in this match up so you wont be too far behind on gold.

VS

Karthus

Medium

Not a fun match up but it is certainly manageable. Dodge as many Q's as possible (its ok if some hit, you do have amazing sustain after all >.>) and try to farm pretty passively until he is low on mana then try to get a few Q's off on him to make him back. 

VS

Kassadin

Medium

I dont know how good Kassadin is against Midwick but I'd think that if you can hit 6 before him, all in him on the spot to hopefully get a kill. Sure the silence is annoying but once you get your Witt's End your AA's will be doing some good damage so the silence wont be too much of a bother.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Not a very hard matchup at all. Farm, Q her alot, then when you are both 6 you have 2 options:

1) Jump on her squishy being and then run away as she ults with your E passive to not take alot of damage.
or
2) Continue to poke her with Q until she tries to all in you then save your ult till she ults to negate almost all of the damage.

VS

Kayle

Hard

... Every melee mid's nightmare.

Try to farm as much as you can under turret as she'll surely push lane a lot. Just try to survive laning phase and you should be able to get help from your team to team her and kill her.

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

Pfffft MR is all you need to counter this one.


In all reality try to stay behind a minion or 2 at all times so she cannot hit her Chain on you and after she uses her W and/or Mimic'd W all in her so she cannot escape easily and you might acually kill her with just R and 2 Q's as she is very squishy.

VS

Lux

Easy

Not too hard of a match up. Build tier 2 boots asap to dodge her Q and E and try to poke her with Q as much as possible then all in her when you think you are strong enough (Try to bait out her Q before you all in her.)

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

His passive can block your Q so if you want to win any fights with him then you have to do it when you have no minions left and his passive is depletting.


Try to get as many ganks as possible, offer the jungler RP if you have to but seriously; Ganks are necessary to win this lane.

VS

Nidalee

Easy

Easy lane usually. Build early boots to dodge her spears and she has no way of damaging you especially with the MR that you build early-mid game.


All in at 6 or whenever you please really just make sure they have no jungler around when you do it.

VS

Veigar

Easy

Not a hard lane to win. Since you have such a strong Q you can heal up any damage his Q does to you. You just have to be careful to not get caught in his Stun or you will take alot of damage especially  if the jungler if there for followup.

Strategy for most match-ups. Back to Top

Poke with your Q and AA's until you hit 6 with ignite up, then if they are >50% HP ult them + Q after with ignite to follow and they should die depending on their items so far.

About me and my suggestions for Midwick. Back to Top

I am a Silver 5 player (I know I am not that good) but I am not really making this guide from Ranked Midwick experiences so I do not know if it would be the best thing you could play in ranked. I just know that playing Midwick is EXTREMELY fun in normals and you can end up carrying very easily if your team cooperates with you.


I would suggest to anyone that is going to try this in ranked games get used to Midwick in normals first to make sure you dont throw the game for your team.
