Thresh, the Chain Warden on PBE

ImageThe new champion of the League has been released on the PBE. According to CertainlyT's introduction, Thresh's ideal roles are support, jungler, and even top lane!

Here's a sneak peak of Thresh's abilities.

Passive: Keeper of Souls

Thresh collects the souls of dead enemies (whenever an enemy dies, he drops a soul). He gains bonus armor, magic resistance and ability power for each soul.
Thresh doesn't gain armor and magic resistance per level.

Q: Shackle

Passive: Deals magic damage with each hit. The damage raises with the amount of souls Thresh has collected.

Active: Grabs an enemy, then pulls them towards himself or leaps to them.

W: Lantern Toss

Throws out a lantern and all allies within this lantern gain a shield, lasting 6 seconds. If you reactivate the ability, he pulls all allies inside the lantern towards himself.

E: Sweep

Knocks nearby enemies in the direction of your choice. Cast forward to push, cast backwards to pull.

R: The Box
Thresh creates a °Box° with 5 spectral walls around him. Every enemy champion who walks through a wall will be damaged and slowed, but will break the wall. Once one wall is broken, remaining walls deal half damage and the slow duration is reduced.

At first look, Thresh looks really like a support. A grab, like Blitzcrank, a shield and pull for allies to save them from a dangerous fight for instance, a knock-back or a pull, depends on the situation, and an AOE slow. His skillset though looks also awesome for a jungler.
