Warwick lore

Warwick is the shadow on the wall of the underbelly of Piltover... Zaun.

His body was transformed with a painful experiment by Singed. Part wolf, part machine. But completely full of alchemical rage.

Once the pain of transformation was too much for him, he was discarded by his creator and left to die.

This is where Warwick found his true potential as a killer of killers.

Warwick abilities

Warwick's abilities make him the epitome of the hunt. With a good chunk of healing with his passive and huge damage with his Q R, he is perfect for jungle.


Eternal Hunter: Warwick's basic attacks deal bonus magic damage. If Warwick is below 50% health, he heals the same amount. If Warwick is below 25% health, this healing triples.


Jaws of the Beast: Warwick lunges forward and bites his target, dealing damage based on their maximum health and healing for damage dealt.

Blood Hunt: Warwick senses enemies below 50% health, gaining Move Speed toward and attack speed against them. When they fall below 20% health, he frenzies and these bonuses triple.


Primal Howl: Warwick gains damage reduction for 2.5 seconds. In the end, or if re-activated, he howls, causing nearby enemies to flee for 1 second.


Infinite: Warwick leaps in a direction (scaling with his bonus Move Speed), suppressing the first champion he collides with for 1.5 seconds.

In his jungle role, having damage-focused runes is the best way for playing Warwick.

This is why Lethal Tempo is brilliant for increasing his attack speed as well as his damage output.

Triumph coming next just helps to assist with Warwick's snowballing and once again adds to his healing mechanic.

Following this up with Last Stand means that his takedowns become even more of a benefit to his kit.

Taking sorcery for his secondary runes with Water Walking and Celerity is also great for the ganking potential he already has with his ultimate ability.
