Hey gang,

I put together a guide over at SoloMid. I've played a lot of games with Thresh, and I have had a ton of fun and success.

Give it a read and let me know what you think!

Hmm... first thoughts - why max Q if you aren't building any attack damage?

Because it makes your early poke at levels 3-9 actually sting.... and of course lower cooldown on the hook is nice.

I appreciate the views gang. Could I get some feedback either here or on SoloMid's comment section?

Thanks!

Shhhhh! I like being the only one in my circle of friends who plays Thresh!

Btw, 3-0 with Thresh top, 2-1 with Thresh adc.

Went into a 5's blind with 4 of my buddies, picked ADC Thresh for the lulz. Went like 16-4 or something like that, including grabbing a first blood that Graves tried to flash away from and I hooked him right back in. =P

Hmm... but the amount of damage which increases by ranking it up is only based on attack damage, not on any base value amounts.

Thresh has the lowest attack damage of any character so far, so it seems like going from 80% of his AD to 200% of his AD will have little difference in effect unless you buy an attack damage item.

If you want a presence in lane (damage-wise) I'd suggest either finding a way to get early ad (runes + itemization) or to start leveling your E instead so that when you do hook them, you hit them much harder.
