LoL: Wild Rift Thresh guide: Best build, items, runes
Everything you need to know about Thresh in Wild Rift
Thresh is the Chain Warden, a warden once tasked with keeping secrets later engulfed by a greater power, which turned him into a merciless tormentor of souls. Thresh was once the keeper of Senna's soul, who miraculously escaped thanks to Lucians countless efforts to bring her back. That's just part of Thresh's interesting lore though.
Other than a character with a great story, he is also a truly wonderful support character, able to inflict crowd control and reposition his allies with the help of his Lantern. He is not exactly easy to play, but with enough practice, he's one of the few supports that can be viable no matter the meta and the matchup.
In this League of Legends: Wild Rift Thresh guide you'll find everything you need to know about the champion, from his skills and how to allocate them to his build, skill combo, and runes. This is what you will find in the Thresh guide below:

How to combo as Thresh in Wild RiftThresh has quite a lot of combos, but many of them are extremely difficult to pull off since they're not only dependant on you casting them, but also on the ally to whom you throw the Lantern. Therefore, Thresh is not the ideal beginner champion, but rather a more advanced support that requires quite a bit of practice beforehand.
Here are some of the basic combos you can pull as thresh:- Skill 1 -> Skill 3 (backwards)
This is the main combo you'll have as Thresh - it's pretty straightforward, and all you need to do is hook the opponent and pull them back towards you with Flay.- Flash -> Skill 3 (backwards) -> Skill 1
This is yet another similar combo, but it is a little bit more flashy. You need to use Flash to close the gap between you and the opponent, then use Flay towards you to impair the movement speed of the enemy, and then quickly follow up with Skill 1 before they get away.
Here are some advanced tips (consider yourself warned, they will require some practice):- Flash -> Skill 1 -> Skill 2 (towards your ally) -> Skill 1 (the second cast that lets you go to the enemy) -> Skill 3 (backwards) -> Skill 4 (Ultimate)
This rather big combo is in fact quite simple. You will start with the simple combo mentioned above (the one with Flash) but you'll also add your Skill 2 - the Lantern to reposition your ally and help them close the gap between themselves and the enemy.
This combo is great if you pull it off from a bush or over a wall with an unexpecting enemy.- Remember that you can hook enemies and monsters over the wall and jump to them
This is often overlooked, but it's extremely useful in some situations. For instance, you can hook a monster from above the wall and then quickly get to them. The same works with enemies.- Always remember to trade with auto attacks
Thresh has empowered Auto-attacks, and they work wonders in lane for trading.
