Our Top Counter Tips For Warwick


Buy a Banshee's Veil. Aside from the resistances that you'll probably need for any other champions on the enemy team, it also forces him to walk up and break the spell shield before he can ult you successfully

Warwick can't gank effectively before level 6, you can use this time to snowball lanes as the jungler, or pressure your enemy laner

Quicksilver Sash removes the supression from Warwicks ultimate, you can use this to make yourself an invalid target

Buying/Taking anything with grevious wounds such as ignite or Mortal Reminder makes Warwicks life hard as it reduces his ability to regenerate health

Champions That Counter Warwick


Olaf

Shyvana

She's basically just WW but better. Minus the easily remedied CC that Warwick offers. She scales hard and can gank at level 3. Not hyper effectively, but better than Warwick. Also, she doesn't mind farming up like him, and has a larger teamfight presence with her ability to peel WW off of a carry with her own ult

Zac Counter Tips

Zac

Zac just makes Warwicks life bad. He has high base damages and can stop Warwicks ult with the two built in knockups he has. He's better at engaging teamfights and can snowball the lanes at level 3+.

Jax Tryndamere Counter Champion

Gragas

He can cancel WW's ult really easily, and get him killed with his high amount of CC. He can gank at 3, and can survive a 1v1 against WW for a long time when built as a tank. Gragas is a peeling machine, but his clear speed is a little worse with the recent nerfs. Definitely a pick to specifically counter a champion

Itemization


Quicksilver Sash

Quicksilver Sash

Abyssal Scepter Azir Counter Item

Mikael's Crucible

Banshee's Veil Cho’Gath Counter Item

Banshee's Veil

Itemization comes easily against Warwick. QSS, Mikaels, Banshees Veil along with the hard CC that every team should have should totally invalidate Warwick, since the only thing he really offers his team one form of hard CC and a little damage. It's also worth building a Morellonomicon and Mortal Reminder to counter any healing he seeks to do
