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.
Twitch can be a *****, and I'm here to show you why. Twitch is one of the most underplayed carries simply because people tend to use him incorrectly. You must play twitch more like an assassin, you'll be squishy but dish out enough damage to carry nearly any team.
These runes may be a little different than what you are used to running on carries, but why?
As I said twitch isn't like normal carries. He does extremely well with attack speed and life steal. You will be sacrificing some of your defenses, but if it came down to where you actually needed them you're likely already dead. Run these runes and you will notice a big difference in your Twitch play.
Here is the bread and butter! Is that mean ole cat chasing you around? Well it's time to do something about it! You're going to crit him to holy death and gain life wile you do it! What's not to love about that? Well that's it, NOTHING! You COULD choose to change some stuff up depending on your situation, but 90% of the time these items will get you exactly where you need to be. Twitch thrives off of attack speed, critical strikes, and life steal. Here you have all of the above without any of the other stupid items that people tend to try to run. Trust me, build this, get your last hits in, don't over extend, and you WILL dominate your opponent.
If you're unsure how to last hit minions... then good luck to you, you're gonna have tons of fun in Elo Hell. Seriously though, nothing very hard about farming with Twitch, especially after you get a few items under your belt. You'll have nice attack speed and the long sword will help your damage to last hit early game, just stick with it if you find it too difficult, practice makes perfect.
So you're unsure how to use Twitch's abilities? Well I'm here to show you how.
His Q, oh his lovely Q you can use it to engage upon enemies like an assassin, you can use it to evade your enemies, you can even use it to get that quick attack speed and take towers ultra fast! It basically allows you to go invisible for a short period of time while gaining movement speed and attack speed, use wisely, this is his only getaway.
The W, the almighty w! You're gonna level this up later because it's not as important as the others, I'm not saying it ISN'T important, it's just not as useful. Twitch will throw some poison marking his passive on the enemy and slowing them. Useful for catching enemies or getting away.
HAIL THE E, the E is your weapon of choice. It's simple, get as many stacks as you can then pop it! The more stacks the more damage it does, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. You can not forget to use this.
Almighty R - His ult makes his basic attacks gain range and goes through targets (for reduced damage). You simply stand in the back and POP there goes a Penta! Helpful if the enemy is getting away too! It even goes through towers! It's awesome! Just please don't farm with it.
