Hello everybody, first of all I am very happy that you came here :) that helped me a lot. I worked pretty hard and spent a lot of time in this guide so I appreciate it. I do not consider myself pro but i have played a lot of Thor. I'm sure this can help people. If you think something can be done better plz put it in the comment section. If this helped or if you like the guide a +1 would be amazing ;)
-very strong early game
-stun + wall

-very good ganks
-tanky if build correctly
-strong in team fights (passive)
-good minion clearing later on
-slow and knock up resistant with his 3
-so much utility!
-You are the son of Odin!
-squishy if not build correctly
-hard to hit ulti
Now, how do you play Thor? Agressive or passive? Well here is the answer
Thor is a melee god, and as you know minions do an incredible amount of damage. So don't attack a champion when there is a full minion wave. If there are only 1 or 2 minions left and they stay to attack on minions, go in! You have the advantage. Your passive will destroy them, open with Berserker Barrage and then do some auto attacks, then if you can kill him, use Mjolnir's Attunement to finish them off or get closer. When you are taking too much damage get away with your Mjolnir's Attunement. Always let your teammate know when you go in. Yell 2 times 'attack' with the voice command system or chat, but you need the help.
I like starting at a jungle camp, wich just gives exp and gold. This will give you a huge advantage in level if they don't do it. You need your lane partner to help in the camp though, so tell him. He can also use the level advantage. When you come in lane you are much stronger and they will feel it after the first wave.
Thor is a great ganker, if mid is loosing in push you can easily go gank mid, with your wall stun it's so easy. If you play it right you should get the kill. But always communicate, say he has to save his cooldowns for the gank or save mana. If you come in with your ultimate ( Anvil of Dawn) make sure your mid knows it, or it's a waste.
You can see in the build i go for rank 1 reinforced boots 5 Healing Potions 2 abilities and a Ward. If you are one of the better players please go for 2 Wards and 4 Healing Potions. Vision on the map can make the difference. Maybe ward the blue?
Please last hit. Nobody seems to do it but it gives you so much extra. If you focus on it you are ahead in no time, even if you're 4 kills behind in your lane.
This gives you the sustain on health and a good amount of armor, Thor is not really tanky on his own. Go for the rank 1 and only back if you can buy tier 3.
Allows you to be agressive and chase a lot more, your early ganks are solid now.
This may seem an odd pick but it has so much physical power and it also has 25% cooldown reduction. This helps Thor out a lot, now he can spam a lot more abilities and you can use your ulti more often
Stone of Gaia:
This item is one of the best item in magical protection, mages will be a lot weaker against you now. It also gives you the very high sustain! Take this if a mage is owning or they have more magical power gods.
Has this nice reduced physical power and attack speed for enemies. Also the physical damage and protection is very good. Take this if for instance, an anhur is destroying your team.
Breastplate of Valor:
This gives you the most physical protection you can get on 1 item. This has also 25% cooldown reduction. So if you want the 50% cooldown reduction, take this. You will be able to spam abilities like crazy. Take this if an physical power god is doing very good or if the enemy team majorly exists of physical damage.
Hide of Leviathan:
This gives you the most sustain if their team is doing good overall and is balanced well.
Deathbringer:This is a must in my opinion, if you want to go damage. But if you want to go more tanky take a good defense item. There are enough in the list that i will give.
This is a almost must item, because it's really good on Thor with the extra 2% per attack you do.
A must against physical damage. If the enemy team is doing bad overall but the only threat is an artemis, You take this and kill her. The physical protecion and damage is an awesome extra.
I do not recommend this item but if you are much ahead you can now kill them much faster! Don't buy this when you are behond please, i tried it and it was a terrible mistake because i wasn't ahead very much.
Gauntlet of Thebes:
This item is great if you want the extra health. This is a heavy health item, no physical or magical protection though.
This is an item that if they kill u much because they slow you and then kill you, you can now remove the slow. Get this early because it's cheap.
Bulwark of Hope:
This is a pretty cheap item and it gives a lot of magical protection. The passive is also great, you get a shield when you get under 25% hp. You get 50% less damage with the shield.
Great item against physical damage enemies and gives a great amount of health. Plus this gives you the nice 40 damage per second.
Theres not much to say about this but don't jungle with Thor. Only in the beginning with your lane partner, take a small neutral camp. This will give you a huge gold and exp advantage.
When you took Hand of the Gods you can take a blue buff or another buff easily, don't hesitate to do it.
Migame and endgame you can clear minions easy with your 1 or your 2. Also the blue buff or the attack buff is interesting to take.
Hercules: he stomps someone behind him then dashes with the poor guy in the turret, you place your wall in front of him so he can't run straight out of the turret and you have the kill assured. So let the enemy push.
These are the counters for Thor in my opinion (where i had a lot of trouble with) feel free to comment more counters, i'll gladly add them to the guide.
Everyone with a pull: for example, arachne pulls you ( Cocoon). You can only get away by using mjolner's attunement. You have to save your cooldowns just for that, so that's a bit hard to deal with. Here are the gods with big pulls:
Mighty Thor, as famous as he is bold, is God of the thundering sky. Yet his hammer, Mjolnir, is nearly as famous as he is, and Thor will not be parted from it.
Odin, the All-Father, bore many children, but none as well known nor as mighty as Thor, who had the strength to move mountains, and the power to call lightning from the sky. Despite these incredible gifts, Thor's enemies were cunning, bloodthirsty and numerous. The Frost Giants constantly threatened to invade Asgard, requiring every ounce of Thor's near limitless strength just to keep them at bay. Had the tide truly turned, Asgard might have been destroyed, but a simple prank played by the treacherous Loki ended with the creation of Mjolnir, the legendary hammer, and with it, Thor utterly crushed the Frost Giants.
Sif, Thor's wife, had hair like rays of sun through a cloudy sky, and Loki, being covetous, secretly sheared it off while she slept. Mad with fury, Thor demanded Loki to fix this. So, Loki went to the dwarves of Ivaldi who forged a golden crown that would grow equally golden hair, a spear that never missed its mark, and a ship that would never sink. Proud of his treasures, Loki returned to Thor and the other Gods, gave the crown to Sif, then bragged that no greater items could be forged.
The dwarf Brokk took offense to this and claimed that his brother could do better. Loki bet his head that he could not. So, Brokk and his brother forged three items, a ring that made a duplicate every nine days, a golden pig that could fly and swim, and the hammer, Mjolnir, with the power to shatter mountains. As each item was forged, Brokk was bitten fiercely by a fly, yet only on the third did he flinch, causing the short handle on the hammer. When they were done, the dwarves took their artifacts before the Gods and decried Loki's fly disguise. All Gods agreed that Brokk and his brother had forged greater items. Loki, ever cunning, declared his neck was not part of the bargain, denying them his head.
Mjolnir went to Thor to battle the Frost Giants. Proud and mighty, Thor beat back the evil horde and continues to defend Asgard to this day. With Mjolnir in hand, Thor is an unstoppable force that even other Gods would do well to avoid.
"Fine armor this... Why anyone thinks four dinner plates upon my chest would offer any protection me eludes me."
"Is it surprising that the day named after me is also a popular ladies night?"
"Jokes are for Valhalla, with a valkyrie and a flagon , THIS is battle!"
"You're in for a world of pain. I bring the thunder AND the lightning!"
"Come, Mjollnir will give you a kiss and take your teeth in the parting!"
"I see you fear the bellowing roar of thunder! For your sodden trousers give it away!"
"To shatter mountains!" (Casting Anvil of Dawn)
"It is not yet time!" (On death)
"Rend the earth!" (Casting Tectonic Rift)
