Introduction

Thanks to Sk1llbug for this awesome banner!



Hi!!

This is Janitsu, you might know me from my other guides, but this is the deal:

I made guide for Twitch, and now, it's your turn to vote it up, comment how I can improve this, how good it is, your scores are welcome aswell....

Twitch is very good as AD carry/Roamer. I don't usually play him as roamer, because of low early health. But it's okay to be a roamer. Twitch is good when you have premade team, with EXPERIENCED support. You should have Soraka, Janna, Alistar, Taric or Sona with you. But now lemme introduce you my awsum Twitch guide:

Pros / Cons

Pros:
High damage
Stealth
Slow
High Range ability and ult
Increased atkspd when stealth ends
Poison that has DoT and increases your abilities effect
SPACE Cons:
Low health
Low range without ult
Exhaust is your DOOOOOOOM
They buy Oracle's Elixir and they are like:

I use these masteries, because of HUGE defensive and offensive burst. You can go as 21/9/0 or 9/21/0 but I don't use 9/0/21 or 21/0/9, because Twitch is AA, so you don't need mana, and you aren't jungle, so you don't need longer buffs. But of course you can tell me at comments, if I'm mistaken.

Greater Quintessence of Lethality

As I have said before, YOU NEED DEFENSE!!

You aren't someone like Graves who has high burst and lots of health for an AD carry, you are playing as Twitch!! You are WEAK, easy to counter with Oracle's Elixir, stun, and all kind of CC's. Don't be like: "I'M IMPOSSIBLE TO KILL, I HAVE FULL STACKED SWORD OF OCCULT. You aren't invulnerable. never. So stay with your team and try to get maximum help from runes. Or be a F**king B**ch.

Summoner Spells

SUMMONER SPELLS

VIABLE:

MAYBE:

NOPE:



So why you don't pick any of NOPES? You aren't support :p, and no dominion guide or troll guide. You just don't want to take these.

Skill Sequence + Explaining Why?

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

So, you probably think, why not max Ambush first? Because it attack speed buff doesn't get that high buff, and you don't actually need more than 20 sec stealth. You can take 3 points to it early, but no more. It's just so annoying to see Twitch, without Venom Cask, because he just takes points to Expunge and Ambush.

Core Items

RIOT'S RECOMMENDED





MY RECOMMENDED






I trust this build. Boots of Speed early survivability, with potions you hold lane for long. The Black Cleaver is your first really dmg item, it is just OP, because lowers enemy armor and gives you attack damage and attack speed. Now I go Berserker's Greaves, because of faster movement speed, and attack speed. I see most of people go for Boots of Mobility, but what do you do with that? You run faster WHEN NOT IN BATTLE, and same movement speed in battle as you would get from Berserker's Greaves, but with Berserker's Greavesyou hit faster. This is why I buy Berserker's Greaves. Now you should buy Zeal Because of attack speed and movement speed and ofc, CRITICAL CHANCE!!!! Your Infinity Edge is now OP, you really hit MUCH crit hits, so people are scared. With Phantom Dancer you hit even more crits. The Bloodthirster and Quicksilver Sash are for survivability, BOTH!!


Guide Top

Items - Damage

IN MY BUILD:


SPACE Infinity Edge is your main and most important damage item. It will be just op, when you have Phantom Dancer and Infinity Edge with The Bloodthirster. You steal huge amounts of life with every hit, because of Infinity Edge's passive, critical hits deal 250% dmg.
SPACE The Bloodthirster is your source of survivability. You steal huge amounts of life with Infinity Edge and + 100 damage. Who wouldn't love this, it's JUST awesome. Nuff said.
SPACE Phantom Dancer is AD carry's power. Without this you: Run slower, hit slower and do less crits. So, if you don't buy this, Lee Sinwill kick your ***.
SPACE So, now you lower enemy's armor, hit faster and harder. This is your early damage item, so you should buy it. Really. nuff. said.

OPTIONAL:

SPACE This is MAYBE, because of it's critical chance and lifesteal. But it's just kinda useless and costs alot of money. but your decision.
SPACE This is good item, gives armor penetration, critical chance, attack damage and Cooldown reduction.


Guide Top

Items - Survivability

IN MY BUILD:

SPACE This is so epic item for you. You can slow enemy, you get health and attack damage. SO this is GONNA BUY THIS item.

OPTIONAL:

SPACE This is for that if they got some1 that just bursts you down. You don't need it and I prefer to not buy it.
SPACE This your MUST BUY item, if your enemies have Karthus, or they have 3 or more AP enemies.
SPACE This isgood if you have fast AD enemies. This is only for games where enemies have 3 or more AD champions.

Gameplay

You are Twitch so you should gank hard, and use your Ambush to go to enemies back. You need support with you, if you want to harass, and then make kill. Blitzcrank is also good lane combo with you. You just can own enemies when Blitzcrank pulls them to you. But you need to avoid high bursts, such as:


Sarah Fortune

Yeah, miss Fortune (Sarah Fortune) is so high burst at late game. Don't go 1 v 1 with her, she owns you with 90% chance.


Kassadin

Kassadin just uses Riftwalk to get near you, then Null Sphere, and then Force Pulse and then just Riftwalk away from you.


Ahri

Ahri rushes to you with Spirit Rush then taunts you with Charm and deals damage with Orb of Deception and Fox-Fire


Akali

Akali is so high burst, you need to be careful if there is Akali in enemy team.

There are many more, but I don't want to put all of those here :p
