About Me Back to Top
Hello my name is Exos! I have been a Kha'Zix otp for the past 2 seasons now. I have reached Challenger on EUNE, Master on EUW with a 82% winrate and Grandmaster with a 70% winrate. Currently I'm pushing my way up to Challenger on EUW too! Twitch Has become my pick everytime I'm matched as my second role support. AP Twitch is a monster in the right hands and can carry games with his very effective kit in SoloQ..
I regularly stream my gameplay on Twitch and upload vods to my Youtube channel. Feel free to check me out. The words are clickable :)
Why AP Twitch Back to Top
Abilities






Twitch - The Plague Rat
Support
Origin: Zaun
Speciality: Assassinating, Slowing, Damage dealing.
Why should you play this magnificent champion? Twitch is a great and unique pick that surprises enemies in SoloQ. Twitch can assassinate enemies and come from invisibility to clean up low health targets or even open up his ultimate on a squishy enemy that has no idea whats going on. Twitch is a great roamer with his invisibility.
Pros & Cons Back to Top
PROS
+ Unique pick and surprises peole
+ Scales hard into the game
+ Has invisibility which is op in soloq
+ Insanely huge burst followed by unexpected true dmg dps
+ Can shred tanks with the passive damage
+ Tilts enemies when dieing to your passive


All in all, Twitch is a great champion on support for soloq. In soloq roaming is really strong, especially when you can use the invisibility to your advantage
CONS
- No hard CC in kit other than slow
- Really squishy
- Really hard to lane vs cc champs like leona
- If you dont get ahead and die too much its hard coming back
- Assassins oneshot you faster than you can do anything


Just like any other champion, Twitch has his weaknesses. However, his strenghts heavily outweigh his weaknesses. When mastered and know how to play around his weaknesses Twitch will scale very hard into the game and will get you a lot of elo and funny moments ;).
Runes Back to Top

DOMINATION
This domination page shows the most efficient rune page for assassin Twitch. The main keystone for Twitch is Hail of Blades. Hail of Blades allows you to stack your passive fast in combination with Venom Cask. Within 3 hits and the venom cask your passive should be max stacked allowing you to use your E fast. Getting the enemy on max passive stacks is essential to do the highest burst damage possible + dps.
For the second row you always want to take Sudden Impact over the others. Sudden Impact gives you an amount of lethality depending on your level when you exit your Ambush. This lethality and magic penetration increases your damage output by ignoring armor and magic resist. Therefore Sudden Impact is the best choice for Twitch
In the 3th row there are 2 possible choices. Either Zombie Ward or Eyeball Collection. I would advise running Zombie Ward in Diamond 4 and above elos because below diamond the amount of wards placed is low and it gets hard to stack your Zombie Ward fully. Eyeball Collection is a great alternative that stacks on kills & assists making it a great alternative to Zombie Ward. Both runes give AP when you stack them. Since more AP means more damage on passive and E.
In the last row you ALWAYS want to opt for Relentless Hunter. This rune is amazing for Twitch support. It allows you to roam from your lane faster to other lanes and return faster. It gives you more pressure around the map because you can move over the map faster than most other champions. Applying pressure as Twitch its important so this rune is your best bet

For the second tree I advise looking at the runes at the top of the guide. You should always take Presence of Mind in order to keep your mana high at all times. Presence of mind works on your passive which means that if you hit someone with either an auto attack or W you will regain a lot of mana because your passive damage keeps this rune active. Second take Legend: Alacrity because you want to get the fast and easy attack speed in in order to stack your passive faster in fights on targets.
Items Back to Top
Spellthief's Edge
Spellthief's Edge is the essential starting item for Twitch. This item grants you gold when attacking the enemy with AA's or E. It does not work on your passive. It's a great item to rack up gold fast and you will stack it faster than most other supports allowing you to itemspike faster.




Mythics

There are currently two good mythics for AP Twitch to choose from.

The first one is Riftmaker. Riftmaker is best bought vs tank/bruiser compositions that are hard to burst down, instead you want to deal as much damage as you can by using your passive and the item's passive. After 5 seconds of combat with champions it increases your damage by 10% which is dealt in true damage. This will make u shred champions with your passive dealing 110% true damage per tick and your E also dealing a huge amount + 10% extra true damage. On top of that, this item offers some sustainability by giving you omnivamp allowing you to heal from your passive and E burst which makes you more likely to survive when being damaged.

The second possible mythic for Twitch is the Night Harvester. This item is great versus squishy team comps. The bonus damage on first contact with enemies makes you extremely bursty. You can easily kill the midlaner and adc with a few auto attacks followed by your E and get out with Ambush. This item only shines vs comps with low amounts of resistance stat stackers like tanks.

It is important to note that u build these mythics AFTER Nashor's Tooth and Rabadon's Deathcap.












-Items-



Items explained

Time to explain the items other than the mythics.

On AP Twitch the build path is usually pretty much the same.
Starting off with Nashor's Tooth is important. This item offers a lot of flat AP combined with attack speed and a great on-hit damage passive. You build this item first no matter what. This item allows you to deal real damage and start assassinating unsuspecting enemies.

In between your first and your second item you want to opt either for Sorcerer's Shoes or Berserker's Greaves depending on your personal preference. Sorcerer's shoes help you burst with more magic pen whilst berserker's greaves allow you to do more autoattacks and apply ur passive faster.

The second item depends on the enemies. If the enemies are stacking magic resist you want to opt for Void Staff. Usually that is not the case yet so you are free to go for Rabadon's Deathcap. Rabadon's gives you a massive spike in your damage output and turns you into a nuker. Rabadon's is the biggest spike of damage you will get in the game. While u have your first 2 completed items you are at your strongest compared to your enemies. Abuse it by forcing fights and roaming as much as you can.

Thirdly you want to opt for one of the mythics described above.

As the fourth item you want to pick up Void Staff. If you picked up void staff as your second item you opt for Rabadon's Deathcap here. By this time most enemies already built magic resist and in order to keep damage high and counter this we opt for a [[void staff].

Last, Mejai's Soulstealer is a great item on Twitch. You usually pick up a Dark Seal on your first base and then start roaming. When you are roaming you will pick up a decent amount of dark seal stacks on succesful roams. Turning this item into a Mejai's Soulstealer is a great choice as in the fights u stay long ranged most of the times so you are safe from losing your stacks.


Summoner Spells Back to Top


SUMMONER SPELLS
-
FLASH: Flash is an essential summoner. It allows you to close gaps to kill the enemy or to escape from the enemy. There is no debate possible about this summoner spell.
IGNITE: This is your best bet as AP Twitch. It's great for finishing off enemies in the early game and always great to have when in need of more damage. The true ticking damage nicely synergizes with you passive making you extra deadly.
Abilities Back to Top
PASSIVE ABILITY
Deadly Venom
Twitch's basic attacks poison his target with Deadly Venom, each attack adding one stack and refreshing its duration on-hit.

Each Deadly Venom stack deals 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 (+3% ability power) true damage every second over 6 seconds (depending on level), stacking up to 6 times for a maximum of 6/12/18/24/30 (+18% of ability power) true damage with each tick (depending on level).
Q
Ambush
After 1 second, Twitch becomes camouflaged for 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 seconds. While stealthed, Twitch gains 10% movement speed, tripled when moving towards an enemy champion within 1000 range who cannot see him. If Twitch attacks a unit or casts a spell while stealthed, he breaks stealth and gains 40 / 45 / 50 / 55 / 60% attack speed for 5 seconds.

Ambush's cooldown is reset when an enemy champion affected by Deadly Venom dies
W
Venom Cask
Twitch hurls a cask of venom at the target location, infecting all enemies hit with a Deadly Venom stack and granting sight of the area.

The area then becomes contaminated for 3 seconds, applying a Deadly Venom stack each second and slowing all enemies within for 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50% (+6% per 100 ability power).
E
Contaminate
Twitch sends out a lethal toxin to each nearby enemy afflicted by Deadly Venom, dealing 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 physical damage.

Contaminate deals 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 (+0.35 of attack damage) additional physical damage and +33.3% AP damage for each stack of Deadly Venom on the target.

Contaminate can be cast regardless of having sight of targets or not
R
Spray and Pray
Twitch gains 25 / 40 / 55 bonus attack damage and 300 bonus attack range for 5 seconds, during which his basic attacks are replaced by bolts that travel slightly further than his attack range in a straight line, damaging every enemy in their path.

The bolts deal 100−60% physical damage (depending on enemy hit), applies on-hit effects and can critically strike against each individual target.
Laning Phase Back to Top
Twitch might be a bit difficult to lane with at first. In lane you want to gain as much gold from your support item as you can. Look to all in the adc/support if they are unsuspecting you being there while being assisted by your ally. You can also bait the enemy botlane to attack you adc while you are invisible. The moment they go for your adc you turn on the enemy adc together with yours and surprise them!

During laning phase u want to look for as many succesful roams to either mid, top or invades with your jungler.
.
Teamfighting & Lategame Back to Top

Teamfighting & Late game with Twitch
Teamfighting as Twitch is pretty straight forward. As Twitch you want to wait for someone in your team to iniate a fight and frontline the fight. When the enemy responds and is fighting you want to come out of invisibility to unleash hell on them prioritizing their damage dealers. If you cant reach their damage dealers you are also great at killing tanks with your passive DPS.


Also, as Twitch you want to look for potential picks on squishies. Look for a flank. When a teamfight is breaking out and you can find a flank angle on enemy ADC/Midlaner and burst them dead, you disable the enemy their dps and will win the fight.

It really depends on the situation and how things are looking. Depending on comps you decide to fight front to back or go for picks.

You need to keep your eyes on the map and be wary of potential flanks from the enemy. Ultimately, you need to be looking for good vision around important objectives such as baron and the elder drake in the late game. It is also possible to let the enemy start these objectives and you then fight them at the entrance of the pit forcing them to take damage from both sides inside a small area. Inside the pit you can easily damage them and keep them trapped with your Venom Cask.
In the late game you should be a huge damage dealer but keep in mind you are extremely squishy. Don't be afraid to fight teamfights but keep in mind your team has to engage or you need to find a pick. In fights look to get max passive stacks on the enemy main damage dealers before you use E. If you stay alive in lategame fights you will deal so much damage that you will win most of the fights.
