Passive: Collecting souls is iconic for him. Can't really nerf this too much without making it useless/Draven'd.
Q: Is a grab, a stun AND a gap closer. They can nerf the range, damage or CC duration for as much as they want but it will always do those 3 things and they can't remove one or the other because Thresh's kit relies on it.
W: The free blink is what makes Thresh iconic, I doubt they will ever remove that, nerf the leash range all you want it will still be a free blink, you can even remove the shield it will still be a free blink.
R: All it simply does is slow and damage, even if they nerfed the slow by HALF it will still be strong and it's an ultimate so it should be strong anyway.
E: unless they Draven the passive component it will still be free auto attack harass. Thresh relies heavily on E active too.
Sona and Janna have been nerfed to death, they're still top tier picks simply because of what their kits bring to the team.
