Thresh: The worth of a soul.

#1MetleonPosted 2/1/2013 7:30:00 AM
So Thresh's passive makes it so souls can drop from every enemy minion and champion, but how much gold is each soul worth?

Each soul gives 1 - .005n Armor and Ability Power, where n is the number of souls already collected, with a minimum of .5 of each (achieved after 100 souls have been collected). Thus, the equation for the amount of Armor and AP Thresh gets per soul is as follows:

Stat = { 1 - .005n; n <= 100
_____{ .5; n > 100


Now the amount of gold required to get 1 Armor and 1 AP can be calculated using items from the shop:

Amplifying Tome: +20 AP 435 gold; 21.75 gold/AP
Cloth Armor: +15 Armor 300 gold: 20 gold/Arm

Thus, the amount of effective gold Thresh gains per soul can be found by multiplying the above equation by 41.75 (21.75 + 20):

Gold = { 41.75 - .20875n; n <=100
_____{ 20.875; n > 100


Thus, each soul is worth a minimum of 20.875, which seems like quite a lot given that Thresh only has to run and pick them up. However, we should now look at how Thresh benefits from each soul he picks up.

In the games I've played as Thresh, I've found that I reach 100 souls around the 45 minute mark. Since Thresh doesn't naturally gain Armor and the fact that 100 souls puts him just barely at the highest base armor at lv. 18 (93 compared to Maokai and Poppy with 90), I'm going to ignore any effective gold he gains from the Armor. Thus, Thresh will gain 75 AP from the souls by the 45 minute mark.

75 AP * 21.75 gold/AP = 1631.25 gold
45 min = 2700 s
1631.25 gold / 2700 s = .6038 gold/s or about 6gp10

tl;dr: Pick up souls as Thresh and you'll essentially have another gp10 item. The only catch is that that gold must be spent of AP and nothing else.

At least Lulu's passive damage is going up at lv. 18. AD/Magic DPS Lulu might actually be used again.

I feel like there should be another section on damage since his Q gives him bonus damage based on the number of souls.
