Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi everyone, this is my guide about Twitch...
Twitch is a poison badass rat who is sometimes mistaken to called food, but in my opinion he is the best AD carry if you know how to play him, so I'll try to teach you how to play him.
Deadly Venom -Twitch's attacks infect the target with Deadly Venom, which deals damage each second, stacks up to 6 times, and lasts up to 8 seconds.
This poison isn't for killing people like Teemo's poison, this is only to stack for your Venom Cask and Expunge
Ambush -After 1.25 seconds, Twitch becomes stealthed for 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 seconds. If Twitch attacks a unit while Stealthed, he gains 30 / 45 / 60 / 80 / 100% attack speed for up to 10 seconds, depending on how long he was stealthed before attacking.
This ability makes you invisible lucker like you are, you should use it for escaping from ganks,fights,but also to check bushes or Baron for your team and ofc the most important to go behind your enemy's and pwn them
Venom Cask -Slows nearby enemy champions' move speed by 30%, plus 6% per Deadly Venom they have. 2.5 / 3.25 / 4 / 4.75 / 5.25 second duration.
You use this for chasing an enemy, just remember to stack as many Deadly Venom as you can before using it
Expunge -Deals 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to each nearby poisoned enemy, plus 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 additional damage per stack of Deadly Venom applied to them.
Your bread and butter spell early game, good for last hitting enemy's and minion's, but same as Venom Cask , you have to stack Deadly Venom before using it to maximize your damage
Spray and Pray -Twitch gains 15 / 25 / 35 attack damage and his attacks become long range line missiles for 12 seconds, dealing 100% damage and poisoning all enemies hit. During this duration, a maximum of 5 / 6 / 7 missiles can be fired.
Twitch's ultimate doesn't give attack speed anymore, instead now it gives attack damage which is a lot better (my opinion). You use it when you pop out of stealth to maximaze your Deadly Venom stacks, just remember,when you are stealthed:first 1 autoattack your target and then use Spray and Pray to gain attack speed bonus from stealth
Greater Mark of Desolation - gives armor pen which is great for late game
Greater Seal of Evasion -no explanation, sometimes dodge saves you from AD's
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist - Magic Resistance is also one of the thungs you need early game
Greater Quintessence of Health - Very good early game, you're not as squishy as normal
You can also swap Greater Mark of Desolation for Greater Mark of Critical Chance
Let's do the explaining: You take Infinity Edge cause of the AD and crit strike so, with Phantom Dancer you should have around 90% crit chance which is a lot
Phantom Dancer - great item, stacks good with Infinity Edge
The Bloodthirster -Gives you AD and life steal, just remember too last hit as many minions,monster,champions to stack it's passive
The Black Cleaver -Gives you Attack damage and Attack speed, remarkable, with this and a Phantom Dancer and pop out of Ambush you will have 2.500 attack speed
Mercury's Treads -good late game boots, gives you magic resist which you need against casters
Banshee's Veil -very good defensive item, especially against casters, also provides health and mana :D
Most of the players maximaze Ambush first but that's W-R-O-N-G!!!!!!!!
Your Expunge is your only nuke spell and you have to maximaze it first so you could get more kills...
Nothing more to explain, after Expunge you max Ambush and take Spray and Pray whenever you can...
I've chossen Flash and Ignite cause you can then escape easier and also kill easier, but there are some other good choices too, like: Exhaust for heavy AD team or Cleanse for heavy caster team...
You should decide on your own, cause everyone has his own playstyle...
Pros: One of the best AD carry's in the game
Good runner with Ambush
Very good last hitter and kser xD
Cons: Very squishy
Needs someone to start a fight for him
The most focused target in a teamfights
Twitch isn't good jungler cause he has too low hp but after lvl 11 you should grab Blessing of the Lizzard Elder WHENEVER YOU CAN!!!!
When you go in a team fights with Twitch you have to be very carefull...
As I said before you will be first champ focused and that's why you should do this:
Before going in a team fight first grab Blessing of the Lizzard Elder (required) and after that go Ambush ed check the place where you think their team is...
After you see their whole team position yourself behind your team mates cause they will try to kill you as fast as they can.
Then,when a team fight starts pop out of Ambush and pwn them with Spray and Pray and Expunge
About farming, if you play solo lane you will have to get 95% minion kills, that's right 9/10 minons, but if you play duo lane you should get 6/10 minions... Just autoattack them once and when they are low hp use your Expunge (if you didnt understand let me explain it beter:autoattack 6 minons and when most of them are low hp use Expunge )
The Champions You Should Avoid (NEW)
This is my new chapter in which I will explain some champions that can easily pwn you in a matter of 3 seconds...
Olaf - Your worst nightmare,he is tanky DPS and has too much HP and damage output for you, it doesn't matter if you know that you already play vs him, even if you do take exhaust it's no use, his ulti is like cleanse...
Just one more important tip: (everything red is important) if you see Olaf on half health just run,because his passive; Berserker Rage , he is more dangerous half health than full, you can only get him untill lvl 6 when he is not so durable...
Shen - he just has too much hp for you, and if you try to run, he will taunt you with Shadow Dash so try to avoid him as much as you can...
Rammus - same story as Shen but only Rammus can kill you faster...
one tip: when in a teamfight vs Rammus you should stay stealthed until he uses his QUER combo, when he does, pop out of Ambush and from safe distance try to damage him as much as you can
Annie - ALERT!!!!! Annie can kill you in 2 secs (verified) if she has her Pyromania ready then you are ****, she will stun you with Summon: Tibbers , then will use Incinerate and will spam Disintegrate ... there's no tips for Annie, you just can't kill her 1 vs 1 unless you are feeded
Sion - too much damage + Cryptic Gaze = pwned
Jarvan IV - you can try to fight him but when you notice that you cant kill him you would try to escape with Ambush , which won't work!!!! here are 2 resons why... When you Ambush yourself he will throw Demacian Standard and ixtend his Dragon Strike into it and you will be visible again after you will be visible he will use Cataclysm on you and you will be pwned
Leona - too much stuns and CC's and also hp = dead
Karthus - Karthus is easily slain if you know how to position yourself against him and if you don't I'll explain it to you: When you know that you are going in a fight versus him, DON'T GO STEALTHED (cause you will maybe need it to escape), he will ofc turn on his Defile and try to spam Lay Waste on you, to avoid so, you will need to turn on your Spray and Pray and attack him from safe distance, when he comes closer, 1 time attack him and move to the right,then again attack him once and move to the right,after that attack him twice and move to the left and etc... if you kill him, run as fast as you can and go in Wolf's Camp and return your hp with The Bloodthirster
Malphite & Cho'Gath - Malphite and Cho'Gath are very similar,both have 2 CC's and much hp, avoid them, if Cho'Gath proper adjusts Rupture you are dead, cause he will then silence you so you cant use Ambush autoattack you twice and then finish you with Feast ... Malphite will first slow you with Seismic Shard then will use Unstoppable Force , Ground Slam and finish you off with normal attacks
Mordekaiser - like Olaf he is your worst nighmare...has too much hp survivability and magic damage output for you, just dont try to go 1 vs 1 him never, you will just FAIL hardly... he will nuke you with Siphon of Destruction , put his Creeping Death on him, throw Children of the Grave on you and finish you with Mace of Spades and to be harder, his passive: Iron Man grants him shield which when its maxed can protect him from your maximized Expunge with 6 stacks of Deadly Venom ...
CONCLUSION: AVOID Mordekaiser AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!!!!!!!
