INTRODUCTION


Twitch, one of the most destructive weapons in 5v5 ganks. Twitch is known for his burst damage and sneaky killing, twitch has a range of abilities that range from invisibility, posion, slow and nukes. All that shape twitch into the carry he is today.

When playing twitch you must keep in mind his a very squishy hero, meaning he will die quite fast. But what keeps twitch so strong is his ability to kill any hero in seconds. So you must be smart and actually think when playing twitch.Now if you enjoy destroying groups of 5 within seconds and hunting the bastards who jungle then twitch is your man!
..........................................................................................

TWITCH'S ROLL


Now playing twitch your roll is to carry, you arn't a tank, your not a caster, your a dps carry! remember that.

Now when playing twitch you really want to farm quite hard early on, but also when givin the oppourtuninity pop out for a quick gank, try head out around 7-11, this gives twitch his ultimate, with exhaust, ult, nuke.. you will destroy.

The most important thing when playing twitch is position, this is so important when playing twitch because you can literally die in seconds if caught in the wrong spot, to many times have i been to close or attacked to fast in 5v5 ganks and just been dropped. You must keep your distance, let your tanks/intiaters get in first, then pop your ultimate and begin.(indepth - below)

..........................................................................................

PRO's/CON's


PROS
-Carry
-Insane burst damage
-Slow/Nuke
-Very long invisibility
-Considered one of the best team droppers

CONS
-Limited escape tools
-Squishy(weak hp)
-Countered by (wards/oracle potions)
-Item Dependant
-Very vulnerable early game.

..........................................................................................

ABILITY COMBINATIONS/ORDER


PASSIVE:

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 passive may be my favourite, this poision is not only extremely effective in dropping the enemys hp fast, but it can farm neutrals quick and easy and be combined with Expunge for heavy damage.


Ambush

After 1.25 seconds, Twitch becomes stealthed for 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 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.

Cooldown 11 seconds | Cost 60 mana | Range 20

This skill is the butter on bread, it makes twitch what he is! the assasin who will hunt you down if your not careful and mess you up. This not only gives you invisibilty for 1minute being able to scout etc... but gives you 100% AS for 10seconds long enough to kill any hero.


Debilitating Poison
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.

Cooldown 10 seconds | Cost 80 mana | Range 200

This is twitchs slow, its not as usefull early because of the lack of damage but end game can produce results.


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.

Cooldown 8 seconds | Cost 90 mana | Range 200

Twitchs nice early farming kills!! this stacked with 6 auto attacks(stacks) can cause a painfull amount of damage just after thinking they've escaped!(very usefull for kills early on)


Spray and Pray

Twitch gains 40 / 60 / 80% attack speed and his attacks become long range line missiles for 7 seconds, dealing 100% damage and poisoning all enemies hit.

Cooldown 105 / 90 / 75 seconds | Cost 150 mana | Range 1200

Twitchs ult, without this your pretty useless, this will drop there team.Use this when your 100% sure you can get +2 kills with it.

..........................................................................................

SPELLS


EXHAUST

Exhaust may be one of the best spells, it blinds the target causing them to miss and slows there movement speed, this for twitch is very usefull in the sense of kiting them and surviving, or just a quick gank of 1v1ing, saving a teamate! its needed.

FLASH

Flash to me is vital for twitch, when using twitch get use to being the first one focused, often when i pop ult and begin they change and focus me down, flash gives you the ability to escape, on the other hand it can be utilzed to gank.. an awsome combo is exhaust,ult,slow,hit hit etc when they run flash infront and its over from there.

OTHER SPELLS:

Twitch isn't limited to just these 2 spells, ive had success with spells such as ignite and ghost so these are both still viable, although the chosen ones have worked best for me.

BAD SPELLS FOR TWITCH:

Some spells you should really not use would include heal, smite, clarity.. all those spells might be abit helpful at start but later on there pretty useless.

..........................................................................................

MASTERY TREE


Ok so this spec is quite unusual compared to the average 21/9 but as i see twitch he dosn't need the swiftness, the dodge wont be enough to be worth it, so ive decided to get the normal 21 points into offensive for the +5% overall damage. Ive gorn 6 into defensive for the +3 Magic Resist/Armor for survival and chosen 3 preverence for the bonus 4% regen, i find it helps alot in staying in the lane(since twitch is quite weak early), i also find im always like 20 mana away from spamming my ult in quick ganks, this'll fix that problem.

..........................................................................................

RUNE BUILD




I find this is best rune for twitch, it just helps overall. i know think has mass AS when using ult but with the build we sacrfice speed for damage in items, to help restore somewhat of speed we need these runes.



Again in my eyes the most effective rune for twitch jus stacking more AS with seals.



This combined with quints will give us around 30 armor pen which will help alot!! most effective rune for twitch by far.



Again stacked with marks gives the best results amror pen! and speed!GG.

..........................................................................................

Item Purchasing/Order/ Early-Middle-Late



CORE BUILD - FINAL RESULT


EARLY BUILD - 15-20MIN MARK

Ok so basically we all know now that twitch is quite weak, i've tried many items to make him more survival but also deal damage, i've gorn with dorans blade.. my favourie early game provides good health, damange and lifesteal.

Pick up 3x of these, this will give you some good survival and dmg, it'll also put the enemy in a false sense of security thinking your going to drop in couple of hits!(known as doran stack)

You should also have picked up your Immo boots, i often thought beserkers where best for twitch with the AS and all but found the hard way that immo works well with invis heros such as twitch and eve, this allows you to travel across and assist in ganks, farm etc easily.. speed around 435 at this time.


MIDDLE GAME - 20-40MIN MARK

Now we have a nice AS easy to gank and farm with our dorans and zeal for survival and dps.! now we begin the mass dps crits.

We want to begin starting our infinity the main item, alot of damage crit and crit damage.. perfect for twitch(Start by buying your B.F sword we need to stack damage)

Now we want to start working on our bloodthirster, choose this item if your enemy isnt heavy on armor heros, if they are on the otherhand go clever for the mass armor reduction stacks.

LATE GAME - 40MIN+
Most games wont last this long but it happens so now we want to get our bloodthirster, more damage and nice lifesteal to keep alive.

If the team is heavy on armor, change blood for clever, you can easily get your +60 armor pen from the stacks. If the team isn't to heavy on armor get the bloodthirster then clever.

Now for final item id suggest phantom/madreds im real sure the game wouldn't go on for this long but if so get this.

Now just slowly replace your dorans with the higher items, remember dorans are just to keep you alive and healthy early on when twitch is most vulernable.
