Intro

To start, Twitch is said to be a noob champion but he really isn't because he takes skill to be able to stay alive in a fight, he dies really quickly. Early game harassment is nice, late game ownage, if used correctly


Guide Top

Runes

runes are typical for a dps, can trade out the seals for mana regen, these runes are just what i am going for and know is what i want, do i have them all? no, am i going to get them? yes.

Items

Starting with Doran's Bladedoran's blade allows you to have some extra hp, some damage, and some lifesteal, even at a bare minimum.

By the time i first go back i can purchase my Executioner's CallingExecutioner's Calling. This item gives you some lifesteal and some crits, it also allows you to do some extra damage that can actually get a kill, but most likely not.

Next i get either Boots of Mobility or Berserker Greaves. BOM (Boots of mobility) allow you to get to other lanes quicker and to gank, BG give you some more attack speed, this is better if you don't want to gank as much but it can still allow you to gank.

Infinity Edge gives you that "edge" (haha pun) for extra crit damage and some attack damage itself.

Frozen Mallet is good for Twitch because he has extreamly low hp, also it gives you a slow that can help you and help teammates. Sometimes if wanted to you can always get it first, i have before and it worked

Phantom Dancer gives you a little bit of everything Twitch wants out of a single item, move speed, atk speed, and crit chance. Getting this item first can be possible, do i recommend it? Eh, its your choice.

Black Cleaver gives you a little bit of Attack Speed and Damage. Not to mention its passive will help because you auto attack a lot so it'll help.

Getting these items in any order is fine, its up to you, or even taking some of them, i like all of the items, sure sometimes i don't get to some of them, but a lot of these items can lead you onto the path of a different build, these items are your core items.

Skill Sequence

I start with ambush so i can easily target the squishy in a lane for First Blood without having the tougher one see me. Next i get expunge so i can do a little bit extra damage. Twitch's W i don't really use because i normally use expunge before it so it doesn't work out, i know that if i had used it i would've gotten a few more kills, but whose complaining, not i.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
High damage
Able to Blow up an enemy
invis gives ability to pick off
ult goes through enemies that can have their life stolen from lifesteal.

Cons:
squishy
easily killed
squishy
low hp
squishy
long-er cooldowns
(did i mention he was squishy?)
not the best team player but can we sufficient in a team fight if used correctly enough


Guide Top

Team Work

team work....
team work....
team work....

Twitch doesn't use this word often. Twitch isn't the best team player but can do something in a team fight, hes better than having somebody just stand there like an idiot and watch as you guys get creamed in the fight, cause you know Twitch won't do that. (some will). For twitch if you could, get up behind your enemies and use your ultimate so you can hit them all, otherwise you can't do much in a team fight, Twitch is better 1v1 assassin.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

Twitch's invisible can be used to get away from many champions, so can your E ability, but not so much. Twitch can go up behind one person with minions in front of them, use his ultimate and the damage done to the minions actually does heal Twitch if you have lifesteal, that can really help you.

Summary

As squishy as he may be, as nerfed as his ult is and not as good now, Twitch is still an awesome carry and should be used, i encourage you to use him and have fun

Sincerly:
Zekaria

P.S. go ahead and add me on LoL (ZekariaVanwood) and in my last build i stated that other builds will be coming up, i lied about that,this came up before because my friend wanted it so i did it, but Toucan Sam will be coming, Fiddlesticks, Kitty Cat Kat will be also, maybe an Udyr and Xin also.
