Valritius' Twitch Guide
This is my Twitch Guide
Hello Summoners and welcome to my guide. My name is Valritius and this is my Twitch guide. I put a lot of time into this so I hope it will help you to the furthest extent! You will no doubt have loads of fun enjoying those stolen kills from your team by using expunge and coming up onto unsuspecting enemies and annihilating them with Spray and Pray.
I appreciate all feedback you guys can give me, good or bad! Ratings are nice as well, and without further ado, I present to you my Twitch guide.
- Easy to pick up kills with expunge
- Deals a ton of damage late game
- Snowballs very easily
- Can splitpush without fear of dying Ambush
- A great help in team fights
- Can gank unsuspecting enemies
If you survive into the late game, Twitch will be everything the enemy team fears, and for good reason. Countless times I have had enemies Flash away from my Ambush Venom Cask combo while right on top of them, needless to say right before they get out of range I always expunge because it has a decent radius. If they are low enough on HP with no Health Potions, they will definitely die to your Deadly Venom. This now allows your jungler to gank more easily due to them not having Flash. Do not try to force it if you can't get the kill, it will probably result in them just going back to base or chugging down those Health Potions, and you won't have any mana or possibly Ignite. I like Twitch because he is one of the greatest AD carries for teamfights. If you catch them all bunched up fighting with your team, all you have to do is watch your dead zones and activate that Youmuu's Ghostblade with Spray and Pray. You will easily get a high multi kill or a penta if done correctly. Twitch is also a good roamer if he gets bot lane's turret down. It is nearly impossible to guess you're about to be ganked by Twitch because of Ambush and by the time you know he's there, you're dead!
- Very squishy
- Main target of teamfights
- Little escape mechanics other than Ambush and Flash
- Possible to have a hard laning phase
- Susceptible to early ganks
- Can't take a lot of harass
- Hard to come back if you do bad early game
Twitch is a very squishy champion through out the whole game and will be targeted by the other team constantly in team fights. When laning, you have to know what the enemy support and carry are capable of, or else you will be cc'd and killed. He is susceptible to early ganks to because if the enemy jungler rushes an Oracle's Elixir, you won't be able to get away easily without poppin some summoners. Most likely that won't be the case unless you are dominating that lane and the enemy carry is fed up with you. You will have an easier time laning against a difficult opponent if you take the Lizard Buff (must be on purple team). In teamfight's you must think a little bit like you're playing Katarina, if you go in too early, you'll be stunned and killed. Go in too late, and your team is already dead. Make sure you are a safe distance from being focused in a teamfight and pop Spray and Pray after coming out of stealth. Use Ambush to get good positioning before you annihilate the enemy. Be sure to know if the enemy team also has an Oracle's Elixir buff on one of their team members. You won't have a good day if they know exactly where you are when you Ambush. Another thing is that I can't not express the importance of focusing the enemy team's highest damage dealer.
There is not much to talk about here that I havn't already mentioned in the notes. I take the crit bonus in Offense while getting a little bit of survivability in the Defense tree, picking up some additional health and minimal armor and magic resist. Feel free to tweak it according to the AD carry you're up against.
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Here I get the most attack damage I can possibly get while getting some defense runes. This will help you early game to get creep score if you have pushed their turret and your minions are busy killing the precious cs you could be getting. It is also good harass for early game if you're up against a Vayne and they don't do a lane swap until she's 5. I get the armor seals to not get completely demolished by the enemy AD carry and I pick up the Magic resist glyphs to reduce any damage done by the support etc, Janna, Taric, Leona.
Flash is a must. As it being the most broken spell in the game, it's suicidal not picking this one up. Especially since you're playing Twitch. Use it to get out of nasty situations.
I highly recommend Ignite for your other summoner spell considering it reduces incoming heals and deals damage based on your level. Wouldn't take Exhaust over it because your support might have it.
Deadly Venom is your passive. It's not as great as Darius' passive, but it stacks, making your expunge stronger with each stack.
Ambush is one of the greatest ganking abilities in the game. Use it to roam and gank other lanes when you have pushed the enemy turret. You can also use it to escape dire situations or get back to base safely. To do this, activate Ambush and immediately press 'b'. You will be stealthed while returning to the base so you won't get ganked.
Venom Cask is a good tool for escaping an incoming jungler that you have clear vision of, or getting those creeps that are just out of your range. When you combo, hit Ambush, go right on top of them, hit Venom Cask and go to town, finishing them off with expunge. Note that this is only for ganks, not team fights
Spray and Pray is your ult. Use it to get a kill that may be just out of your range. I like to save it for teamfights though, because you will just shred the enemies' HP away with the combo of your Venom Cask and expunge.
I like to max Ambush as quickly as possible for the cooldown and increased movement speed while stealthed. It helps escape ganks and helps you perform them as well. I pick up Spray and Pray and 6, 11, and 16, as you all should. After Ambush I immediately max out my expunge for the increased poking.
Overall, Twitch is a great champion to play that is underestimated as an AD carry. I also hope this guide is a great help to you all. I could not have made this guide without XxCreepAxX. He influenced me to play Twitch in the first place after getting a penta kill in a ranked game against me and my team. He helped me perfect this build and he deserves a lot if not all of the credit to this guide. Have a wonderful day my fellow Summoners.
