Twitch The Plague Rat

The city-state of Zaun is a twisted realm of science, mercantilism, and magic run amok. While the young science of techmaturgy does much to advance civilization, its research and use in Zaun pushes the boundaries of morality on a daily basis. Zaun, choked with pollution from the countless factories and laboratories that spew waste into the environment, suffers greatly. As polluted as Zaun is above-ground, its subterranean levels are far worse. All of Zaun's runoff waste pooled together in its sewers, mixing into a toxic and mysterious concoction. A single plague rat rose from this alchemical nightmare - Twitch. Unlike his lesser evolved cousins, Twitch became as sentient as anyone else... provided they were as insane as he. A seeming byproduct of the evolutionary brew that spawned him was maniacal insanity, albeit in a functional form.

Twitch came to the League of Legends to represent himself ''as the only one of his kind'' on the Fields of Justice. Since then, he has found a generous benefactor in the city that gave him his evolutionary sentience - Zaun. Twitch is one of Zaun's premier champions in the League, and as such he fights for Zaun when political disputes between Valoran's city-states arise. Twitch has publically stated that his goal is to gain enough influence and materiel from his work in the League to try to recreate the process by which he gained his sentience. While many challenges lie ahead in his quest - one of the largest being his own insanity - were he to succeed, it would mean a bold and brazen step forward in the evolution of all of Runeterra. Zaun has pledged its support for Twitch in his quest, though it remains to be seen what Zaun's ulterior motives are in the matter.

''The existence of Twitch proves that anything is possible on Runeterra.''
-- Heimerdinger

Summoner Spells

Useful for helping get distance between you and your enemy in an instant. Whether its going on the other side of a wall or just getting distance so you can go invisible it is always helpful.

Flash can also be used to chase down champions if you need to gain a little distance between you to land a last hit.

You can use exhaust to slow a target that's running away giving me enough time to kill him. Or you can use it to stop the enemy from hitting you a little giving you enough health/time (because it also slows) to get away.

Runes

Greater Mark of DesolationGives ArP which helps against armored champions.

Gives increased critical strike chance.

Gives increased critical strike chance.

Gives increased critical strike damage. Yes I know most of you think that this is a "waste" of ip. I will probably get voted down just because of this. I believe that this is better than an ArP. Most of you are assuming that with twitch you are like any other champion and stand there attacking constantly, but you are wrong. Twitch is meant to snake up on enemies and then pop out and do 1-5 attacks of damage quickly. Therefore it is better to have increased critical damage if you have critical chance increased (like i do).

Obtaining Gold/Farming

In order to get gold fast for twitch you could either use Avarice Blades in order to get gold or you can farm minions with Madred's Razor. Since we are already going to get Madred's Bloodrazor it makes since and is easier I.M.O. to use Madred's Razor over Avarice Blades.
I recommend above all to just last hit minions.
