  • ThreshSquare.png Thresh's basic attacks do not utilize projectiles, meaning they will not be blocked by Wind Wall.png Wind Wall or intercepted by Unbreakable.png Unbreakable. His basic attack wind up is only reduced by 0.25% per 1% attack speed, rather than the standard 1% [2].

Thresh does not gain armor per level. Instead, Thresh collects the souls of dead enemies by approaching them or by placing Dark Passage.png Dark Passage's lantern nearby. Each soul permanently grants 0.75 armor and ability power. Champions and large minions and monsters always drop a soul. Small minions and monsters only sometimes drop a soul.

A soul will only drop if the enemy unit dies within 1900-range of Thresh. Souls are visible to allies, and only become visible to enemies if the enemy team has vision of Thresh. Souls disappear if not picked up after 8 seconds.

Ability Details
Damnation is a passive ability that grants Thresh bonus armor and ability power.

Additional Information:

  • The armor Thresh obtains from Damnation is considered to be base armor, not bonus armor. As such, it will not benefit from Enchanted Armor mastery s4.png Enchanted Armor or other bonus-armor scaling mechanics.
  • On Summoner's Rift, the drop rate for souls from small minions is 33%. However, the probability adjusts dynamically. If you are above or below your expected quota of soul drops from small minions, the probability lowers or rises by a small amount until you are back at your quota of drops. It is worth stressing that this only takes into account souls dropped, and not souls collected.
  • At 255 souls, Thresh gains a new buff, Damnation Soul Gluttony. Soul Gluttony states that he has gained 255 souls as well as how much ability power and armor that is worth. The Damnation buff disappears, and starts again at 1 from your next soul. This will occur each time Thresh obtains 255 souls, with Soul Gluttony updating each time (e.g. 255, 510, 765, and so on).
  • For some general benchmarks on the worth of a certain number of souls at level 18, consult the list below:
    • 64 souls (slightly over three and half per level) are needed to match GnarSquare.png Gnar's 64 armor, the lowest innate champion armor.
    • 104 souls (almost six per level) are needed to match MaokaiSquare.png Maokai's 94 armor, the highest innate champion armor.
    • 123 souls (almost seven per level) are needed to surpass TaricSquare.png Taric's passively Shatter.png Shatter-enhanced 108.1 armor, the highest possible persistent armor without the use of items, runes, or masteries.
    • 264 souls (almost fifteen per level) are needed to surpass RammusSquare.png Rammus's Defensive Ball Curl.png Defensive Ball Curl-enhanced 213.4 armor, the highest armor possible without the use of items, runes, or masteries.
    • 94 souls (over five per level) are needed to deal more unmitigated damage per basic attack than a VayneSquare.png Vayne using Final Hour.png Final Hour with 179 AD, the highest possible attack damage without the use of items, runes, or masteries.
    • 142 souls (almost eight per level) are needed to deal more damage with a Lich Bane item.png Lich Bane Spellblade proc than with Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force.
  • The number of souls caps at 999,999, at which point Thresh will have 749,999 bonus armor and ability power.
    • This amount of armor grants Thresh 99.99% damage reduction.
    • Even with the 35% armor penetration from Last Whisper item.png Last Whisper, this amount of armor grants 99.98% damage reduction.
  • Damnation features an easter egg: NunuSquare.png Nunu will drop 2 souls, his own and Consume.png Willump's.

Death Sentence
RANGE: 1100
COST: 80 mana
COOLDOWN: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12
Death Sentence

Active: After a 0.5 second wind-up, Thresh throws out his scythe in a line and forms a tether with the first enemy hit, dealing magic damage and Stun icon stunning it for 1.5 seconds. Upon hitting an enemy, Death Sentence's current cooldown is reduced by 3 seconds.

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

While the tether persists, Thresh cannot attack and he will periodically tug on the tether, each time pulling the target a short distance toward himself. After 0.5 seconds, or instantly if he hooks a minion or monster, Thresh can reactivate the ability to use Death Leap.png Death Leap.

Death Leap
Death Leap

Active: Thresh pulls himself to the bound enemy. This removes the stun but allows Thresh to attack again. Thresh loses the ability to activate Death Leap when the tether breaks.

Ability Details
Death Sentence is a linear, collision skill shot that can be reactivated, Death Leap, to dash onto the affected unit.

Additional Information:

  • Projectile Speed: 1900
  • Death Sentence is classified as a stun rather than a pull. Stuns prevent the target from moving, declaring attacks or casting abilities, but do not prevent summoner spells being cast (excluding Flash.png Flash and Teleport.png Teleport).
  • The duration of the stun is reduced by tenacity. However, the tether remains for the full duration and Thresh may still dash onto his target. If the stun is removed, however, such as with Quicksilver, Mikael's Crucible item.png Mikael's Crucible, Cleanse.png Cleanse or certain champion abilities, Thresh will be prevented from casting Death Leap.
  • The stun will be ignored by targets with crowd control immunity, such as Black Shield.png Black Shield. However, the tether is still formed and Thresh can still dash to his target.
  • Death Sentence is one of only two tethered abilities in the game that does not have a maximum leash range, the other being Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.
  • The tether is not broken if the target becomes untargetable, such as Playful.png Playful or Force of Will.png Force of Will.
  • Unlike the behaviour of most other skillshots in the game, Thresh will not face the direction he is throwing Death Sentence during the casting animation.

Dark Passage
RANGE: 950
COST: 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 / 70 mana
COOLDOWN: 22 / 20.5 / 19 / 17.5 / 16
Dark Passage

Active: Thresh throws his lantern to the target location where it remains for up to 6 seconds. For the next 6 seconds, the first ally to come near the lantern gains a shield that absorbs damage for up to 4 seconds.

  • Shield Amount: 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+ 40% AP)

If an ally right-clicks the lantern, they will pick it up and will be pulled to Thresh's location. If Thresh moves more than 1500-units away, the lantern will return to him. Allies can only receive the shield once per cast.

Ability Details
Dark Passage is a ground-target, persistent area of effect.

Additional Information:

  • The lantern creates a small area of impassible terrain while on the field. Enemies in the area when the lantern is summoned will be nudged to the nearest available space. This is not classified as crowd control (particularly, it will not interrupt channelled abilities).
  • The lantern's aura radius is ~150 units. This is also the range on the lantern's ability to pick up souls.
  • The lantern's pick-up radius is not much larger than the model-size of the lantern. However, it is possible to pick-up the lantern through small walls so long as you are within that radius.
  • The lantern provides vision in a small area for the entire duration.
  • Thresh cannot click on the lantern himself but he will be shielded if he walks near it.
  • The lantern cannot be targeted by Teleport.png Teleport, but it can be targeted by allied-targeted dashes.
  • When the lantern is thrown a golden circle is shown displaying the maximum leash range of it.
  • Thresh can break the leash range returning the lantern to him to instantly shield himself, if he has not been shielded by the ability already.
  • An ally being carried by Dark Passage will be taken to Thresh's current location, not Thresh's location when the ally grabbed the lantern.

RANGE: 400 (800 total)
COST: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 mana

Passive: Thresh's basic attacks deal bonus magic damage on each hit. This value is equal to the total number of Damnation.png Souls collected, plus a percentage of his attack damage based on the amount of time since his last attack.

  • Magic Damage: Damnation.png Souls + up to 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 / 200% AD

Active: Thresh sweeps his chain in a broad line towards a target direction. Enemies hit take magic damage, are Airborne icon knocked in the same direction as the chains, and are Slow icon slowed afterwards for 1 second.

  • Active Magic Damage: 65 / 95 / 125 / 155 / 185 (+ 40% AP)
  • Slow Amount: 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40%

Ability Details
Flay's passive is an non-physical on-hit effect.

Flay's active is a point blank, line area of effect. The direction of knockback is determined by the direction of the line.

Additional Information:

  • Despite its tooltip, the passive bonus damage is based on the amount of time since Thresh's last hit, not his last attack. As the bonus damage does not work against wards or structures, the bonus damage will not reset and will continue to accumulate even while attacking.
  • Runaan's Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane will apply the passive damage to each enemy hit. However, when Thresh strikes one of the enemies the time since his last attack is reset and the other two targets will take only the minimum damage.
  • When the passive is fully charged the icon of the buff becomes red, Thresh's scythe will glow green and there is a sound effect.

The Box
RANGE: 450
COST: 100 mana
COOLDOWN: 150 / 140 / 130
The Box

Active: After a 0.75 second delay, Thresh summons 5 spectral walls around him that last up to 5 seconds. Enemy champions that touch a wall take magic damage and are Slow icon slowed by 99% for 2 seconds, but break the wall. Once one wall is broken, the remaining walls deal no damage and apply half the slow duration. An enemy cannot be affected by multiple walls simultaneously.

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

Ability Details
The Box is a point black area of effect that creates five walls in a pentagon shape.

Additional Information:

  • Movement speed cannot be reduced below 110, and slows that would reduce it below 220 are modified. To put it another way: a reduction of 99% will not reduce you to 3 movement speed, but rather it will reduce you closer to 110 than a weaker slow would.

Map-Specific Differences
