Thresh is a champion in League of Legends.[1]



Innate: Enemy Champion icon.png champions, large Minion icon.png minions and large Monster icon.png monsters that die near Thresh drop a Soul for 8 seconds. Epic monsters drop 2 Souls instead. Small minions and lesser monsters have a 33.33% chance to drop a Soul.

Thresh autonomously collects Souls near him or a placed Dark Passage Dark Passage.

Each collected Soul grants Thresh Ability power icon.png 0.75 ability power and Armor icon.png 0.75 bonus armor.

  • Souls grant a small area of Sight icon.png sight.
  • Souls are visible to allies and only become visible to enemies if their team has Sight icon.png sight of Thresh.
  • The probability for souls dropping from small minions and monster on Summoner's Rift icon.png Summoner's Rift starts at 33% but adjusts dynamically to match the expected quota of souls dropped (lowers if above, rises if below, remains if even). Souls collected are not considered when adjusting the probability.
  • The maximum amount of souls Thresh can collect is 999,999, granting him 749,999 bonus ability power and 749,999 bonus armor (99.99% damage reduction, reduced to 99.98% when hit by Last Whisper Last Whisper).
  • Nunu & Willump Nunu & Willump drop a soul each.

Death Sentence
TARGET RANGE: Range center.png 1100 / Range model.png 1040
EFFECT RADIUS: Global / 3000
WIDTH: Range model.png 140
SPEED: 1900
COST: 70 Mana
COOLDOWN: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12
Death Sentence.png

Active: Thresh throws out his scythe in the target direction, becoming unable to move or attack while it is in flight.

The scythe catches the first enemy it hits, dealing them magic damage, Stun icon.png stunning them for 1.5 seconds, and hooking the target for 1.5 seconds, during which the target is True Sight icon.png revealed and Thresh is unable to declare basic attacks. Hitting an enemy reduces the Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown of Death Sentence by 3 seconds and Slow icon.png slows Thresh by 20% for 1 second.

Magic Damage:
80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+ 50% AP)

While the target is Stun icon.png stunned, Thresh tugs at his scythe's chain twice over 0.8 seconds, Airborne icon.png pulling the target a short distance towards himself with each tug. After 0.5 seconds of hitting an enemy or instantly after hitting a Minion icon.png minion or Monster icon.png monster, Thresh can recast the ability to cast Deathly Leap while the target is hooked, doing so will cause him to stop tugging.

Deathly Leap.png

Recast: Thresh Dash.png dashes to the hooked enemy within range, becoming able to attack again upon arrival. Thresh can cast any of his abilities while in flight with the exception of The Box The Box.

  • Thresh will track the target if they change locations.
    • He will dash to the target's previous location if the target is too far away or moves beyond the maximum tracking distance.
  • Thresh will turn his facing direction towards the cast direction only after Death Sentence's cast is complete.
  • Death Sentence triggers on-cast effects (such as Sheen item.png Spellblade and stacking Force Pulse Force Pulse) once at the start of the cast, and once at the end of the cast. It may trigger on-cast effects a third time when casting Deathly Leap.
    • This is because a separate spell is cast to prevent Thresh from facing towards the target direction immediately, which is (incorrectly) flagged to trigger on-cast effects.*
  • Deathly Leap has a maximum cast range. If Thresh or his victim move too far away from one another, Death Sentence will show its cooldown prematurely, preventing Deathly Leap from being cast.
    • This behaves similarly to a tether range.
    • If Thresh is already outside the maximum range when the scythe lands and the hook is created, Death Sentence will not be on cooldown*, however actually casting Deathly Leap will cause it to fizzle unless Thresh has walked into range again.
  • While Grounded icon.png grounded or Root icon.png rooted Death Sentence cannot be recast.
  • Only Death Sentence's first chain tug puts the target Airborne icon.png airborne. Outside the first ~0.3 seconds, the target is only stunned.*
  • Death Sentence will not Stun icon.png stun enemies that are Unstoppable icon.png displacement immune or Cc-immune icon.png cc-immune but the target will still be hooked and Thresh is still granted the ability to recast for his dash.
  • Thresh will not tug at all if the Stun icon.png stun is not active on the target or if he used the recast.
  • Spell Shield.png Spell shield will block all of Death Sentence's effects, including the hook as well as prevent the cooldown reduction.
  • Death Sentence's Stun icon.png stun duration is affected by Tenacity icon.png tenacity but the hook will always persist for 1.5 seconds, unless the target uses a Remove Scurvy.png cleansing effect, in which case the hook is removed.
    • Death Sentence's Stun icon.png stun will persist even if Thresh dies before the duration ends. The tug will not occur as Thresh is not alive.

Dark Passage
EFFECT RADIUS: Range center.png 350 / 150
COST: 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 / 70 Mana
COOLDOWN: 22 / 20.5 / 19 / 17.5 / 16
Dark Passage.png

Active: Thresh throws his lantern to the target location which lands after 0.5 seconds, lasting for 6 seconds or until he moves too far away from it, granting Sight icon.png sight of its surroundings.

Thresh and the first allied champion to come near the lantern are granted a Hybrid resistances icon.png shield for 4 seconds. An ally can select the lantern while in proximity of it, Dash.png dashing to Thresh and gaining the shield.

Shield Strength:
60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+ 1 per Soul Soul collected)

An ally cannot select the lantern while Silence icon.png silenced, Grounded icon.png grounded or Stun icon.png immobilized.

  • The ally, while dashing, will track Thresh if he changes locations.
  • The lantern is considered a unit and can be targeted by an allied Teleport Teleport, Leap Strike Leap Strike, Shunpo Shunpo, and Safeguard Safeguard.
  • The lantern's duration and maximum leash range are each displayed as a circle on the ground.
  • Dark Passage is special cased to trigger Guardian Guardian.

Tips & Tricks
  • Since the ally needs to select the lantern, it would be best if it is thrown somewhere where other units cannot obstruct it. On the other side, enemies may create targetable units on top of the lantern to impede allies from grabbing it (i.e Warding Totem Warding Totem).

TARGET RANGE: Range center.png 400 / Range model.png 400
EFFECT RADIUS: Range center.png 270

1 per Soul Soul collected (+ 0% AD)
Maximum Bonus Magic Damage:
1 per Soul Soul collected (+ 100 / 125 / 150 / 175 / 200% AD)

Active: Thresh sweeps his chain around him and in a broad line in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies within the area, Airborne icon.png knocking them 200 units toward the chain's direction, and afterwards Slow icon.png slowing them for 1 second.

Magic Damage:
65 / 95 / 125 / 155 / 185 (+ 40% AP)
20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40%
   "This way!"

  • Applies Death Lotus.png area damage on the ability and deals Wit's End item.png proc damage on the enhanced basic attack.

    • 50 - 75% 50 - 75%
    • 75% - 100% 75% - 100%
    • 100% 100%
    • At 100%, Thresh's scythe will glow green and a sound effect will play.
  • Runaan's Hurricane's Runaan's Hurricane's Wind's Fury will apply Flay's passive to each enemy hit, with the secondary targets taking minimum damage (charge resets upon hitting the primary target).
  • The enhanced attack applies other on-hit effects and can Critical strike icon.png critically strike as normal (the bonus damage cannot) but does not affect structures or wards (hitting them does not consume the bonus damage or reset the charge).
  • Flay's passive enhanced attack can be Counter Strike.png dodged (the enhanced attack is not consumed and the charge is not reset) and Spirit's Refuge.png blocked (the enhanced attack is consumed and the charge is reset).
    • 𝐏𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐓𝐄𝐒𝐓 : Enhanced attack's interactions with Blind icon.png blinding effects (regarding both bonus damage and charge reset).

The Box
WIDTH: Range model.png 30
COST: 100 Mana
COOLDOWN: 140 / 120 / 100
Side length: Range model.png 470
The Box.png

Active: Thresh surrounds his location with a pentagon of spectral walls, each one lasting for up to 5 seconds. Walls break upon contact with an enemy champion, dealing them magic damage and Slow icon.png slowing them by 99% for 2 seconds.

Magic Damage:
250 / 400 / 550 (+ 100% AP)

Enemy champions breaking any wall beyond the first take no damage and are Slow icon.png slowed for only 1 second.

   "Nowhere to hide."

    • The Box always faces into the same direction (one of the walls is due North, and spreads West-East).
      • The cast indicator does not show this behavior.
  • The corners of The Box are placed 400 units around Thresh.
    • Each wall is 470.228 units long.
