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.
I have played twitch for many games and have fallen accustom to a certain build. This is what i am posting. It is my play style and i have seen other twitches do well in games with other items.
Runes: +100 max health at level 1 =D
armor pen is essentially + damage when you look at it
attack speed is needed obviously to get more stacks on an enemy
+ armor: little less squishy :D (this is one i play around with tho and is really preferance:
Start - Dorans shield and health pot - we all know twitch is a squish little deadly rat. The shield has nice life regen and defense. the pot is a precationary measure
First trip - Berserker Greaves and Vamp - + mov + ias no reason not to get the boots. could go dagger or vamp but i prefer vamp as i no longer need to use pots.
Second trip - Could be for mana or to get malady. if you want mana but dont have egnough thats ok, just 1-2 daggers and wait to get the 600 gold for malady.
Everything else - Get malady, then build infinity edge. afterwords i got for other items that i put in the list. really situational dependent. if Large group battles are occuring i go Tiamat for splash damage. you bassically want a plethora of + damage items.
My general end game set - malady, boots, infinity edge, Bloodthirster, frozenmallet, and a gaurdain angel.
Strategy - ill go on a brief rant about some things not to do first off then ill explain how i play.
DONT DO THIS -
1) Ambush afk - aka. be like many other twitches and sit in ambush then last hit people. this is completely unproductive and annoying to team members. Instead use ambush to scout (with no oracles on other team) or just use it for the attack speed increase to prebuff before a fight. Generally when the other team gets oracle and your shaco or eve your screwed. I personally dont care because once the battle startes im there and attacking everything in my path.
2) Expunge crazy - I have witnessed twitches clear minion waves with expunge. after this they missed a champ kill due to no mana. If your protecting a turret, go for the super expunge, otherwise keep it saved up for champs. the give you much more gold than stupid creeps.
3) 1v1 tanks - If the tank has full health and is any good you will die. you have 1.7k health ... they have 4k. you might smack them with crazy hits but ive seen twitches die 1v1 , using thier ult, coming out of ambush, with dibil and expunge. yes it is possible that you can die.
HERE IS MY STRATEGY:
Pregame- lane with a Tank or a CCer. end of story. the less damage you take or the more hits you get the better.
Early game - last hit creeps, save expunge for champs, ambush near enemy to make them retreat. at level 3 or 4 attempt kills but mainly dont die. with your lanemate target the squishy
mid game - help when needed and if teamfights start , sit behind a tank and get ready to pop from ambush, attack the squishy, use ult and then expunge. kills them before they know what hit them.
late game - dont get 1vx'd ... stay with your team and push, your damage will kill towers quickly.
post if you want me to explain more/ criticisms you have
