Warwick Strengths & Weaknesses

Has great sustain in lane thanks to his Jaws of the BeastQ and the items he will pick up throughout the laning phase.

Good pick potential throughout the game with his Ultimate Infinite DuressR. Even if he can’t use it top, he can use it somewhere else.

Good split pusher and good at chasing down enemies in the mid and late parts of the game.


Is not the best champion when behind, however, he can build full tank and be the tank for his team. His Ultimate Infinite DuressR will also be helpful.

If the enemy zones him away from farm, it will be difficult for Warwick to pick up gold and XP. This is also a big problem if the enemy freezes as he has no ranged abilities to help him farm.

His Ultimate Infinite DuressR leaves him vulnerable. If the enemy locks him down with CC, his Ultimate Infinite DuressR will be stopped.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Warwick is Strong

You will want to look for regular burst trades with Warwick. Your Blood HuntW and Primal HowlE should allow you to win fights easily.

Once you get your Ultimate Infinite DuressR, you should be able to all-in enemies regularly. You may even be able to gank other lanes as and when possible.

Getting your core items should allow you to fight way more easily and sustain yourself in the lane. Your Jaws of the BeastQ will be really beneficial for you to ensure survival during the brunt of the fight.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Warwick is Average

Keep running around the map and look for picks with your Jungler. Your Blood HuntW and Primal HowlE should allow you to CC and kill enemies quickly.

During neutral objective fights, you should be able to help your teammates a lot by making sure that the enemy can't get into the river. This will let your Jungler have an easy time getting the objective in question.

You should be able to sustain yourself massively in this fight so make sure you use your Q and Ultimate Infinite DuressR regularly and properly. Avoid getting CC'd at all costs while doing so.

Late game
25+ min
Warwick is Weak

Use your Blood HuntW to snuff out enemies during this phase of the game but ensure that your team is there to follow you up should you look for an engage.

Always try to Ultimate Infinite DuressR the enemy Jungler during this phase of the game. It will allow your team to get a free Dragon off after managing to kill the Jungler.

Be extremely careful when looking for all-ins. Get a defensive item to ensure that you can sustain for a longer period in fights.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Warwick’s weak early on, but once he gets some levels under his belt, he can be a real pain for the enemy laner.

At level 6, Warwick can go for more aggressive plays and shut down the enemy laner. He can also use his Ultimate Infinite DuressR to help his allies in other lanes.

Once Warwick has a few points in Jaws of the BeastQ, his sustain in the lane will help him even in the toughest of matchups. He will also be able to trade more effectively in the lane

Mid game15 - 25 min

At level 11, Warwick will put an additional point in his Ultimate Infinite DuressR. The cooldown will be reduced and he will be able to get picks on enemies moving around the map or trying to fight him alone.

At level 9, Warwick will max out his first ability, which is usually his Jaws of the BeastQ. The extra sustain and damage it gives this ability will make him a huge threat to the enemy.

During the mid-game, Warwick can be a strong split pusher: using his insane 1v1 potential and movement speed to escape scary situations while he is overextended.

Late game25+ min

Warwick will put the third point in his Ultimate Infinite DuressR. It will be on a low cooldown and will be a great tool at picking off the enemy in the late parts of the game.

Warwick will be very tanky in the late game so he will be able to soak up a lot of enemy damage.

At level 14, he would’ve maxed 2 abilities at this stage of the game. This is a significant power spike for Warwick.
