Warwick has incredible sustain in the jungle, hardly losing any health during his clear, and he can mop it up pretty quickly. Even though his ganks are pretty weak pre-6, you should still be looking for an opportunity to gank. He falls off significantly in the lategame, but you should be looking to take down a squishy target before huge teamfights take place.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Jaws of the Beast, for faster jungle clear and a heal.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Blood Hunt, for more mobility around the jungle and for early gank potential.
  • First Back - Pick up Tiamat as early as possible.

Tips & Tricks

  • When you are below 25% health, the lifesteal of your passive is tripled. 
  • Jaws of the Beast inflicts the effects on impact. 
  • If you see an enemy tight to a wall, you can use Jaws of the Beast to lock onto them and hop over the wall.
  • If you hold down Q when using Jaws of the Beast, you'll follow the target even if they use a spell to dodge or move out of the way. 
  • Blood Hunt reveals the position of a weak enemy, even through the fog of war. 
  • The bonuses offered by Blood Hunt are tripled if the prey is below 20% health.
  • Primal Howl reduces damage dealt to Warwick on activation. Use it at the right time to tank enemy damage. 
  • If you use Primal Howl followed by Infinite Duress, you'll fear enemies around your target. This is good for taking control of a neutral objective such as Dragon.
  • Infinite Duress gains more range the more move speed Warwick has.
