Champion Matchups

Introduction

WARNING!
THIS GUIDE IS MADE FOR FUN AND I'M NOT VERY SURE IT CAN WORK IN EVERY GAME!

Thresh is considered tank/support/AP and that's what I also though at first. He has some UBER burst with his Q + E + R and with a lot of souls and damage, your Q's passive deals literally tons of magic damage on each hit! So your goal in this guide is to build up so you can overpower strong opponents, just with your Q. You need damage, attack speed and 70-100% critical chance. Your objective in the game is to hook an enemy and pull yourelf on him and then kill him with your Q's passive. The soul harvesting helps a lot, sine it gives you a really good boost on AP and Armor.

Pros:
-Strong against any champion with low Max HP
-Active Role in the game
-High Damage
-Lots of CC
-Fun

Cons:
-Easy to counter (Fiora, Olaf, Pantheon, Teemo worst opponents)
-Not much help in Early/Mid Game
-Easy to be killed
-A lot of people will think you want to troll (ignore them)

So let's begin!

Masteries

The masteries don't really matter... Just focus on the damage side and add whatever you like. I think the tree I made is the best one.

Runes

So we come on runes... Thresh isn't made to be an ADC so he doesn't have any Attack Speed. You need to boost his Attack Speed with Marks. Seals and Glyphs for Attack Damage and Quintessences for a bit of Armor Penetration (in case you don't buy Black Cleaver or Last Whisper).

Summoner Spells



Explanation:
I pick Ghost instead of Flash because I think that Thresh needs it to chase to cast E and then Q. If you Flash and use Q, there is a huge chance of missing, however if you cast first E and then Q, the enemy is already disabled and becomes and easier target.

I pick Exhaust to destroy enemy ADC. Thresh isn't that strong against most carries, so he needs something to become more equal with them and that is Exhaust. Of course, it's also good in conjuction with your Ghost for chasing.

Skills

Passive: Damnation

Explanation:

GO SOLO TOP! GO SOLO MID! GO SOLO LANE! YOU NEED TO FARM TO WIN! FARM! FARM! FARM! When you have 100+ souls you will be fine but until then don't play Rambo Style in team fights. Your passive helps a lot in Early game and in Late Game it tanks you even if you don't have any tanky item. Try to harvest as many souls as possible! Be greedy, even dive for souls, YOU NEED THEM!

Q: Death Sentence

Explanation:

I think it's pretty obvious why I max Q first. That's the skill you will focus on the most. It deals 200% of your damage on each hit... That means, if you have 400 Damage you will deal 400 Physical Damage + 800 Magical Damage... If you have a lot of souls the damage gets even better. The only drawback is that there is a time delay to deal the full 200% damage, however you deal around +100% with every hit which is also really OP.

W: Dark Passage

Explanation:

Useless skill if you are ADC. Use it rarely to escape situations where you get a lot of DPS (ignite, poison) or as a ward at Early game.

E: Flay

Explanation:

Use it for a bit of damage, escapes, initiations and disabling.

R: The Box

Explanation:

Really good in teamfights. Use it when you are on your own and pull the enemies on it. It's gonna surprise them and for 1 second they won't know how to react, which is enought to DESTROY them.

Skill Order

Max Q and then E. Level up your Ulti and get 1 level for W at level 4.

Early Game

In early game, you have to focus on farming and harvesting souls. I prefer going Top, but middle lane is also good. Get Berserker's Greaves ASAP and then focus either on damage or attack speed. What I usually do is buy Berserker's Greaves, Vampiric Scepter and 4xDaggers for nice attack speed. Then I build 3 Zeals and buy: Statikk Shiv, Phantom Dancer and then Trinity Force. While laning, you will be (usually) against a meele tank/fighter and that means you can harass a lot. Try to kill the enemy and play as offensively as possible, but be careful for ganks. Don't participate in teamfights unless it's safe.

Mid Game

Keep on farming, but move from lane to lane and also stay on the jugnle for a bit. Try to gank mid or destroy your enemy at top. Buy Bloodthirster and Infinity Edge and you will deal tons of damage!

Late Game

Late game is the best part of the game for ADC Thresh. Your damage should be around 300, attack speed around 1.5-1.7 and your critical hit chance around 50-100%. Start participating in Teamfights and DESTROY the enemy Carry/Mage/Support. You will deal 1000 damage with each hit and around 1200-1400 cirtical every two or three hits. With your Q's stun/pull you can disable one of the enemies and dominate him. Keep on harvesting souls and when you reach 200-250 you will be fine.

Final Comments

The aim of this build is to have fun and try something different. I can't promise you that you will win if you try it, but it's surely a nice experience despite the results.

Have Fun and leave comments with questions or anything else you would like to know/add.
