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.
First of all I'd like to point out this is my first guide. Twitch is amazing on dominion with his invisibility and massive damage output. I play Twitch as an interupter/slayer. I find this to be much more fun than backdoor capture Twitch.
This could happen to you
I'd like to point out what this build can do. Also what Twicth in general can do.
I realize we lost, but thats not the point. 27/12/9 is a great KD and 2351 points is an extremely massive score for dominion. See if you can beat it.
Fairly straight forward.
Greater Mark of Desolation and Greater Quintessence of Desolation: Armor penetration helps Twitch deal more damage.
Greater Glyph of Attack Speed: Attack speed for more poison which means more Expunge damage.
Greater Seal of Attack Damage: Straight damage provides a much needed damage boost for early game.
It may seem weird going 30 0 0 but Twitch needs all the attack power he can get. I don't find many other masteries to be as useful on him.
To start I get
. This gives Twitch a little bit of movement and some damage.
Then I go straight into . This gives Twitch attack speed and damage which are vital to a good Twitch. The passive also adds great damage.
allow Twitch to gank or get to Capture Points quickly to interupt. A must have in my opinion.
Next I go for and . The extra damage, crit chance, and life steal help Twitch stay in the battle longer and finish it sooner.
is a good item with a lot of attack speed and some ability power (which boosts expunge). There are other items that could take its place such as or . It's all personal preference.
I get either last or second to last. It is a great item with attack speed, movement speed, and crit chance.
If you're looking for a little survivability adds quite a bit of health and attack damage as well. I would replace with it becuase the other items are more necessary.
First thing: MAX EXPUNGE. This ability is extremely porwerful in my opinion. Get six stacks of poison hit E and dead. Put a rank into this whenever you can (minus levels 6, 11, and 15 of course).
Ambush is great on dominion. It allows you to sneak up on emenies and then kill them in a couple seconds due to the attack speed boost. Normally I'll try and flank and enemy with one of my allies. That way, if they try and run from my ally I come out of no where and kill them. Ambush also allows for backdoors if you get the chance.
Spray and Pray. I love using this ability to interupt. Especially when there are two or more trying to cap. I will use ambush to get in a good position (one where I can hit all the ememies) and just unload. Make sure to use expunge to finish them off or if you're about to die.
Debilitating poison in my opinion is not a good ability. Yes, it slows them but normally you can kill them before they get away and if not, just disappear into the shadows to kill them later. If you like having a slow, you can throw in a rank at level 8.
is a great way to reduce the damage Twitch takes. He is very squishy so this helps him survive and finish off his target. I rarely use this for chasing or escaping.
adds an extra boost of damage as well as healing reduction. When combined with Deadly Venom if a champion tries to run away with low health they will probably die trying. This is a must on any Twitch.
is good for chasing but like I said that shouldn't be an issue. If you must chase I would still use .
can be good for escaping but because Twitch is so squishy I normally die before getting to use it.
Twitch in Dominion
I always go top with twitch to start. Hit the speed shrine and then hit Q. Get to the windmill and secure as many kills as possible. Note: Twitch cannot Kill Steal. He can only Kill Secure.
Remember deaths do not really matter in dominion. So don't worry if you die. Normally when I play Twitch I die at least 10 times. I might add that my kills are rarely below 15.
As Twitch you need to watch your mini map a lot. Watch where the enemies go and meet them there. Be sure to interupt as much as possible. Those are your Capture Points not theirs. Use Spray and Pray and get triple kills 1v3 And then take the base. I've done this multiple times and it is quite satisfying.
If you get the chance go for a backdoor. Normally though im just roaming around securing kills and interupting.
Remember: You will die. It's unavoidable. But what you do before you die is what counts. Interupting a capture can give your team time to get down and help you. If you don't kill any of the enemy you probably got them really low on health. Your team will thank you for that even if you died.
Twitch is amazing on Dominion. He does take some getting used to, though. Comments and suggestions are definatly welcome.
