Thresh will turn to face wherever your cursor is when you smartcast it.

Just like how Draven is melee, because he uses axes.

Thresh is labeled as melee. His attack has no projectile. Hurricane and Tiamat treat him as a special case, but he's still considered melee.

His DPS is actually pretty bad, his main strength is his utility.

So he has a ranged attack that the game treats as ranged from items, but because he has no projectile he's melee? That doesn't make sense. Does the client describe him as melee or are you just calling him melee?

He is saying the client labels him as melee. The projectile thing is an important difference. Projectiles don't deal damage until it moves from the person to the target meaning there is a delay in the damage from animation to contact. Melee attacks damage happen practically instantly.

Thresh it seems operates as if he is melee even though the target is further away.
Much like when Kayle activates her abolity.

If he is melee... does he get 5 gold from pickpocket? Cause that would be sweet.
