Intro

Hello everyone!

I am Paralisys, a Masters support player on NA. Thresh has been my main champion since 2014.

I have linked his champion spotlight, which runs down his abilities in a great way!


Runes (Loadout)

These are the three main rune pages high-ranked players run for Thresh.



  • The first is the new standard rune set. Glacial Augment is an n active slow on immobilizations. Thresh has two ways of activating this rune, his hook (Q), and his flay (E). It is the most effective rune from it's slowing and damage-reduction fields.



  • The Guardian set is a great choice when you cannot reliably activate Glacial Augment. The changes in the past few seasons have made it much less reliable than it used to be. That being said, it is still a good choice for Thresh when glacial isn't optimal.



  • Aftershock is a great choice if you're being focus-fired in certain matchups or team compositions.
    
  • Glacial Augment Set
  • Guardian Set
  • Aftershock



Summoner Spells (Loadout)

These are Thresh's standard summoner spells. Ignite is taken more often than exhaust, but in those lanes where there's minimal kill pressure, vs. all-ins, exhaust is preferred.

  • Summoner Spells

Skill Path

-Death sentence (Q) is almost always maxed first. -Dark passage (W) is almost always maxed second. -Flay (E) is occasionally skilled into early on in matchups where basic attack trading is relevant.

Item Builds

Thresh has a couple viable builds. However, something to note is that Thresh doesn't NEED items to work well. He's actually one of the worst champions in the game with turning gold into power.

Build Explanations

  • -The standard build is currently my preferred built. Radiant Virtue gives Thresh combat power, and provides even more utility to the team. Thresh can choose his moments better than any other support in the game, Virtue helps turn the tide.
  • -The VS enchanter build is a little more forgiving as the stats/mobility bonuses with Shurelyas helps Thresh match the enchanter's abilites to provide buffs.

Both are great builds, and are very adaptable.

Also note, most of the time Thresh will be stuck on 2 items, very rarely does he get all 6 in a game.

  • Standard
  • VS Enchanters

Matchups

Below I have ranked Thresh's matchups from easiest to most difficult with a moderate tier in between.

Mages and enchanters are nightmares for Thresh outside of the first 3 levels of the game. If you haven't punished the lane before then, the matchups feel very bad. Thresh can cancel most gap closing spells with his Flay (E), so this allows him to navigate some matchups a little easier.
