How it works

  1. You play poke oriented Mage.
  2. You rush Luden's Companion.
  3. You build AP items, going full damage.

How to play

  1. Playing AP Thresh build, your default rush is Luden's Companion. In cases, when an enemy team is full of tanks and HP stackers, go Liandry's Torment.
  2. Adapt to an enemy team. Are they full of tanks, and they rush tons of Magic Resist? You rush Void Staff as #2 or #3 item to counter MR stacking. Their team has champs with lots of healing? Rush Oblivion Orb as #2 item (upgrade to Morellonomicon as 4th or 5th item).
  3. Somebody is going after you each fight? Always getting ulted by enemy assassins? Rush Zhonya's Hourglass.
  4. You primarily will be looking to hit Death Sentence (Q). Once you do that, you can (go in), use The Box (R), use Flay (E) and follow that up with auto attacks. Or just do it from the distance, use E, maybe R and a couple of auto attacks.
  5. You can use Flay (E) during Death Sentence (Q) flight. That's a very cool interaction that will let you do some plays and more damage.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Communication is key when making use of Thresh's lantern. Let your teammates know how you like to use it.
  2. Death Sentence and Flay can be combined in either cast order for powerful combinations.
  3. Thresh can collect souls without needing to kill units himself. Planning your map position to be near the most deaths will help to maximize soul collection.
