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

Abilities[]

Edit

Damnation

Innate: Thresh's armor does not increase through growth (per level).

Damnation

Innate: Enemy Champion icon champions, large Minion icon minions and large Monster icon monsters that die near Thresh drop a Soul for 8 seconds. Epic monsters drop 2 Souls while lesser minions and monsters have a 33.3% chance to drop a Soul.

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

Soul: For each stack, Thresh gains Ability power icon 1 ability power and Armor icon 1 bonus armor.

Info
  • Souls grant a small area of Sight icon sight.
  • Souls are visible to allies and only become visible to enemies if their team has Sight icon sight of Thresh.
  • The probability for souls dropping from small minions and monster on Summoner's Rift icon 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.
  • Nunu & Willump Nunu & Willump drop a soul each.

Death Sentence

Death Sentence

Active: Thresh throws out his scythe in the target direction, becoming Lockout icon 2 unable to move or attack while it is in flight.

The scythe catches the first enemy hit to deal magic damage and Stun icon stun and True Sight icon reveal them for 1.5 seconds, as well as reduce Death Sentence's Cooldown icon current cooldown by 2 seconds. Thresh will also mark the target Shackled for 1.5 seconds, during which he is unable to declare basic attacks, and is Slow icon slowed by 20% for 1 second.

Magic Damage:
100 / 150 / 200 / 250 / 300 (+ 90% AP)

While the target is Stun icon stunned, Thresh tugs twice over 0.8 seconds, Airborne icon pulling the target a short distance with each tug. After 0.5 seconds of hitting an enemy or instantly after hitting a Minion icon minion or Monster icon monster, Thresh can recast the ability while the target is Shackled, which will cause him to stop tugging.

Deathly Leap

Recast - Deathly Leap: Thresh Dash dashes to the Shackled enemy, becoming able to attack again upon arrival. He can cast Dark Passage Dark Passage and Flay Flay during the dash.

Info
  • 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 2000 units.
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.
  • Thresh will not tug if the target is too close to him.
  • 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 Spellblade and triggering Force Pulse's Force Pulse's passive) 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.(bug)
  • 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(bug), however actually casting Deathly Leap will cause it to fizzle unless Thresh has walked into range again.
  • Death Sentence cannot be recast while Grounded icon grounded or Root icon rooted.
  • Death Sentence can be recast even while the target is Untargetable icon untargetable.
  • Only Death Sentence's first chain tug puts the target Airborne icon airborne. Outside the first ~0.3 seconds, the target is only stunned.(bug)
  • Death Sentence will not Stun icon stun enemies that are Unstoppable icon displacement immune or Cc-immune icon immune to crowd control 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 stun is not active on the target or if he used the recast.
  • Spell Shield 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 stun duration is affected by Tenacity icon tenacity but the hook will always persist for 1.5 seconds, unless the target uses a Remove Scurvy cleansing effect, in which case the hook is removed.
    • Death Sentence's Stun icon stun will persist even if Thresh dies before the duration ends. The tug will not occur as Thresh is not alive.

    Dark Passage

    Dark Passage

    Active: Thresh throws his lantern to the target location over 0.5 seconds, lasting for 6 seconds while he remains nearby and granting Sight icon sight of its surroundings. If Thresh moves too far away from the lantern, it returns back to him immediately.

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

    Shield Strength:
    50 / 70 / 90 / 110 / 130 (+ 2 per Soul Soul collected)

    An ally cannot select the lantern while Stun icon immobilized, Grounded icon grounded, or Silence icon silenced. The lantern will not expire from Thresh moving too far away if he is dashing with Deathly Leap Deathly Leap.

    Info
    • The dashing ally will track Thresh if he changes locations.
      • They will dash to Thresh's previous location if he is too far away or moves beyond 2200 units.
    • 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.
    • Thresh will gain Dark Passage's shield from moving out of leash range of the lantern.
    • Dark Passage is special cased to trigger Guardian Guardian.

    Tips & Tricks
    • Since the ally needs to select the lantern, enemies may create targetable units on top of the lantern to impede allies from grabbing it (i.e Warding Totem Warding Totem).

    Edit

    Flay

    Flay

    Passive: Thresh's basic attacks are empowered to deal bonus magic damage, with the Attack damage icon AD ratio increasing over 10 seconds without basic attacking enemies.

    Minimum Bonus Magic Damage:
    1.5 per Soul Soul collected (+ 0% AD)
    Maximum Bonus Magic Damage:
    1.5 per Soul Soul collected (+ 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 / 200% AD)
    Flay

    Active: Thresh sweeps his chain across the ground in a broad line and a radius around him, starting behind him and towards the target direction. Enemies hit are dealt magic damage and Airborne icon knocked 200 units in the target direction, and then are Slow icon slowed for 1 second.

    Magic Damage:
    75 / 120 / 165 / 210 / 255 (+ 70% AP)
    Slow:
    20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40%
    ▶️   "This way!"

    Info
    • Flay's effects start at the start of the cast time. Thresh can cast other spells once the cast time completes, but remains unable to attack and move and use mobility spells (such as Flash Flash) until the chain completed its way entirely.
    • Applies Death Lotus area damage on the ability and deals Wit's End item proc damage on the enhanced basic attack.
    • The knockback's Airborne icon airborne debuff is set to last longer than the forced movement, but gets removed as soon as the forced movement from Flay ends or is overridden by another.
    • Flay's passive's buff icon changes colors depending on charge level. 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 critically strike as normal (the bonus damage cannot).
    • Flay's passive enhanced attack can be Jax Counter Strike old dodged (the enhanced attack is not consumed and the charge is not reset) and Spirit's Refuge blocked (the enhanced attack is consumed and the charge is reset).
    • The empowered attack will not trigger against structures nor wards.
      • PENDING FOR TEST:: Enhanced attack's interactions with Blind icon blinding effects (regarding both bonus damage and charge reset).

    Edit

    The Box

    The Box

    Active: Thresh erects a pentagon of spectral walls around him that each last for 5 seconds. A wall will break upon enemy champion contact, dealing magic damage and Slow icon slowing them by 99% for 2 seconds.

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

    Enemies that break a wall cannot do so again for 1 second. Subsequent walls they break will deal no damage and Slow icon slow for only 1 second.

    ▶️   "Nowhere to hide."

    Info
    • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the start of the cast time.
    • The Box always uses quick cast, regardless of player settings.

        • 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.

    Sadistic and cunning, Thresh is an ambitious and restless spirit of the Shadow Isles. Once the custodian of countless arcane secrets, he was undone by a power greater than life or death, and now sustains himself by tormenting and breaking others with slow, excruciating inventiveness. His victims suffer far beyond their brief mortal coil as Thresh wreaks agony upon their souls, imprisoning them in his unholy lantern to torture for all eternity.
