So I'm getting close to 6.3k and I was wondering if I should get Thresh.

He looks really fun and that lantern seems like a really powerful tool, but I haven't seen Thresh perform exceptionally well in any of the games I saw him in, plus his Q is damn easy to predict with that long windup time. He has pretty strong peeling though, with that ult and E, so I'm torn.

Is he a good support, and is he worth buying over Leona for example?
Can he do anything else well?
Should I just get Vi and use her to get elo before she gets nerfed?

Won't Thresh be free this week?

Also, a good Thresh wins games.

Thresh is an extremley powerful Jungler in my opinion.

i bought him after the pricedrop and had fun while playing him.

wait for the free week and test him, cause he can play all lanes.

PS. Leona is a better pick for support lane tho

I beg to differ on the leona thing. Never lost to a leona as thresh.

Lulu on the other hand..... Such a hard counter to thresh that it's unreasonable. There is just absolutely no way to fight a lulu in lane as thresh.

I haven't seen more than a handful of Threshes yet and the only good one thus far was on our team. How does he fare vs. Janna?

I've only played thresh since the day he came out, and I've done so in all lanes.

Thresh can lane against ANYONE except lulu. Nobody else can really escape, or do anything about your chain once it has been landed.

Lulu on the other hand.... Land a chain on the enemy ADC? Polymorph. Land a chain on lulu? Polymorph and kill you soon as the chain is over.

But if you chain anybody else and nicely time a lantern throw at your lane partner, thresh is an absolute horror to fight. Unless you're lulu.

Overall in normals and ranked I have about an 80% win rate with Thresh.
(100% win in ranked, but then only 1 game :I)
He is a high skill high reward champion.
He can save allies from otherwise certain death and control teamfights like no other.
He can peel, he can save, he can initiate.

Taric used to be my favorite support... but then Thresh came along.

if you can't skill shot, don't use him. Its like blitzcrank's hook but it has a channel time with an obvious telegraph when used.

Otherwise he can get pretty tanky and is fun as heck, but hard to use. If you are new to support pick someone else.
