Wild Rift Warwick buildRiot Games

With Wild Rift patch 3.4c now live, players are looking to learn more about new bruiser: Warwick. Here is everything you need to know about the champion, including his item builds, ability upgrades, and runes.

The new champion plays as a melee bruiser, viable in both the Baron lane and the jungle. He has ample sustain built into his kit, which allows him to dual rather effectively. This rings especially true after Warwick learns his ultimate, which sends Warwick flying into a target direction.

His other abilities center around keeping the jungler practically latched onto the enemy, slicing and dicing away at their HP.

Warwick released on November 4 at 00:01 UTC two days after the patch 3.4c update.

Warwick wants to build as a high-sustain bruiser. First build Divine Sunderer for its defensive and offensive capabilities. After, rushing Blade of the Ruined King is a great option for him, as the life steal alongside slow synergizes wonderfully with the champion’s play style.

Run in, hit the enemy, and chase them down with Warwick’s dashes and the additional slow provided by Blade of the Ruined King.

As for the other items, opt for the typical AD bruiser items. In essence, Death’s Dance, Black Cleaver, Sterak’s Gauge, or even Randuin’s.
