Why is Thresh a support champ?

His design seems more like an AP champ.

Spoiler is plot element, not your ignorance.

Because every one of his skills is support?

"So selfish them" would be their cry. And, who'd be brave to argue? Doin' what you people need is never on the menu!

Thresh can top, Thresh can jungle, Thresh can Mid, Thresh can adc. Oh yea he supports good too. Whats your point?

He has a hook, a shield, his lantern can save people, and then his ult. He can potentially go in other lanes, but he just works so well as a support.

AP Carry would not have the single best utility skill in the entire game. He has pretty high cool downs on his skills with meh ratios outside of The Box. In addition, his skill set requires you to be in the middle of a team fight to do the most damage, something that's not typical of an AP Carry. The thing that makes Thresh a ridiculous support outside of his utility is that he does very good damage for a support and gets incredibly tanky for a support due to his passive.

-Free barriers for everyone on the team
-Escape ganks with lantern
-Hook to set up a kill
-Attack to back enemies away or into your adc
-Ult to be disruptive in team fight.
-Choice to be a kill or passive lane
-Free ap and armor from passive making you become semi tanky


Am I missing something?

Also.

that a champ has stupid amounts of utility is a reason to play them support
but not a reason to ONLY play them support
