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.
Hello and welcome to my first ever build. This build will focus on exploiting the squishy aspect of AP champs and can even be considered a tank dropper. It combines the pure attack speed of the Q(AMBUSH)and the pure damage dealt through armor pen with a added effect of E(Expunge). Remember that it may look extremely bad to a lot of top players so don't bump it if you haven't tried it, it works.
I go with
9 Greater Mark of Desolation
9 Greater Seal of Furor
9 Greater Glyph of Celerity
3 Greater Quintessence of Fortitude
Reasons for the Desolation is the whole build is based upon armor pen.
Furor is just to add more to the damage.
Celerity is to further add more damage by cooldown for your Expunge.
You may find a better way to increase damage and if you do I will revise this.
Masteries are going to be 21/0/9.
Refer to the masteries tab.
Revisions are allowed if you feel you have a better idea on how to do more damage.
I tend to go with a avarice blade then after that grab a brutalizer. Turn them both into a Youmuu's Ghostblade. Start to get your boots you may want to tailor your boots choice the the situation but as a gank heavy character you may want to either get Boots of Swiftness or Boots of mobility.
This is wear it gets interesting, now start to build the Sword of the Divine. After you finish that off get a last whisper. Once my Sword of Divine is finished immediately start working on getting your last whisper. After so you will finish it off with any sort of survivability items. Personally I would go for a Frozen Mallet or Guardian Angel 5th slot then get the other after-wards.
Pros / Cons
Pro's: Extremely powerful DPS, Great AoE damage, Better survivability as a DPS Carry. You will absolutely most of the time do TRUE DAMAGE to champions and the tanks will not and should not stand in your way.
Con's: No ability to get out of CC's and stuns, Twitch is a squishy so you will be entering the team fight midway into it or playing cleanup crew. Great Dps however you will be focused if not following what I have said. Also you need to be some-what fed in the early game to take full advantage of the build.
How to play using this build.
The combonation or button presses will be with all Items as followed: Q(ambush),1(Youmuu's Ghostblade),2(Sword of the Divine),R hit with your ult and max stack poison then E(Expunge).
For just Ghostblade/Sword of the divine just remove a button press and keep the "Flourish" going. Expunge should always be used last in every team fight due to its ******ed damage early on. If you get focused while ulted hit as many times as possible until you're about to die then expunge.
I can not stress enough however KILLSTEAL ALL YOUR KILLS even when you are doing more damage then Jesus himself keep doing it. This is not a friendly build but your teammates will thank you when you are hitting turrets with sick damage. THIS IS NOT FOR THE WEAK.
You really want to just play back and communicate ganks with your lane partner. I play with my buddy, he usually plays Xin Zhou and has that knockup. You want to lane with a disabler. Once you get a kill or two and you push them back on YOUR lane, recall, this makes them cautious due to twitch's stealth and they think you are still around them; Not only does it push them back on your lane but it also makes mid lane more passive for your team.
MID GAME aka ENDGAME
By this point you should already have your ghost blade and boots and well on your way to a sword of the divine. Keep ganking and messing stuff up and get more fed, by this point you should be bad-*** enough to get red buff and blue buff and rip-s$%^ more so then before. Once you get your sword you should have what I call "Flourish" going on in your button presses. I can not stress enough however KILLSTEAL ALL YOUR KILLS even when you are doing more damage then Jesus himself, keep doing it.
There should not be one however, if you do get to this point get survivability because things will start to get harder. As you own, people will be forced to armor up and try to counter your dps, even get thorn mails.
Where I got the build.
It is essentially my friends Xin Zhou build, I tried it on twitch for the lulz and was delighted when I went 7-0 and completely 3-4 shotted 3 people. I have had many a good game with this build and if people have ideas of increasing the power of this build it would be appreciated.
