Champion Build Guide
Hello my friends,My name is Oudiematic3000 and I've been hardstuck Bronze for a while now but mostly because my teammates are bad and the enemy team is hacking. Though I peaked Silver IV in the S11 preseason. My favourite streamer's (Elite500's) chat has often described my climb as 'really sad' and 'Weirdchamp' and it's this type of positive reinforcement that keeps me going, especially on the hard days. I'm an ex-Twitch OTP with around 200k mastery (M7 achieved at 160k) and I believe he is the greatest champion in league of legends.
Hope that gets infected...
|Deadly Venom on AD Twitch does pretty much nothing. Occasionally it'll kill a minion that was left on 1 health after you auto'd it, and then you can clip it and post it to r/Twitchmains with the caption, 'Poison came in clutch!!! OP!!!!' for 3 karma. On AP Twitch though- It makes Liandry's Anguish complain about being power-crept on Twitter. At 6 stacks in the mid game this'll do around 100 true damage per second and it's at this point that you may start referring to Liandry's Anguish as Walmart Deadly Venom.|
Ambush is honestly hilarious. it makes you disappear faster than my LP and gives you a spicy boost of
attack speed when you reappear. Not to mention it resets on takedown. It also gives you a slight
movement speed buff and a bigger one if you're running away from an enemy. (Note: this part of the ability is irrelevant as mama didn't raise no ***** *** *****.)
Ambush is great for repositioning in fights as well as greeding for kills and dying with the extra MS.
Now there's a smell you can feel!
|Venom Cask is just plain stupid with AP twitch. This piss pool practically replaces both Ignite and Exhaust by slowing your enemies by so much that it might even be possible for your support to land a skillshot on them and applies up to 4 stacks of Deadly Venom which should melt their healthbar by approximately 2 billion true damage per second. Venom Cask is otherwise kinda meh on AD Twitch. The minor slow helps but mostly it helps you stack that sweet poison.|
You're looking a little green!
|Ah yes. Contaminate, the execute button. Contaminate does a burst of damage to all enemies affected by Deadly Venom with the damage increasing depending on how many stacks they're grooving with. As AD Twitch, unless you're really fed, a 6-stack Contaminate will kill any non-tank with a quarter health left. You want to wait for 6 stacks in order to kill someone. (Unless you're building AP in which case you can generally remind them how good League looks in black and white at however many stacks you feel like.) Getting 6 stacks on multiple people with Runaan's Hurricane in teamfights and getting a fat E is pretty much a free win.|
Sewer skewers for everybody!
|Spray and Pray is a one-button Viagra for your auto attacks. This ability combined with Runaan's Hurricane allows you to damage the entire enemy team at once and rake up those sweet stacks. Spray and Pray gives you piercing bolts, a range boost, a damage boost and an elo boost.|
AD Twitch - ratirlStare
This is my favourite way to take people to see colourless movies. AD Twitch excels at scaling into the late game to ubercarry everyone and your inting jungler's grandmother by dealing consistently tilting damage to the entire enemy team with autos from across the map before pressing E Contaminate and typing /mute all before the enemy team's pitiful ADC can complain about your champ requiring no skill. This is the build I feel is the most fun way to play AD Twitch (and I saw RatIRL play it once or twice maybe.)
AP Twitch - Rat in a Hat
If you want to spend your next 400 games trying to find a way to consistently know your Contaminate damage, AP Twitch is the build for you. I swear, once you get 2 items you simply press W on the nearest group of squishies, make sure its not November, wait till they've hit 4 stacks and press E to instantly nuke them. AP Twitch plays more like an assassin than an ADC. And in my opinion, building AP Twitch after queuing Bot is kind of trolling your team because you lack anything more than burst damage. For this reason I recommend playing AP Twitch support to make your ADC feel irrelevant by dealing 90% of the enemies' healthbars with little to no-effort and then perma roaming.
Moonstaff Twitch - Rat in the Report Feedback
I thought it would be insightful to get a view from the pro scene on Twitch for this guide. So I reached out to the man who defines the League of Legends meta on the daily: LS, aka Lil' Sassy, on Twitter, asking what he though about Twitch.
Predictably, he did not reply to my tweet. But I'm sure that he would have recommended building Moonstaff on Twitch support.
11.8 update: It's dead. This build is dead. And with it- our smiles, our love and our ally healing.
If you do plan on building this, I recommend taking the Grasp runes because if you're gonna L9 it this hard, you might as well play under the assumption that you picked an entirely different champion. Grasp of the Undying is actually fairly easy to proc on Twitch because your poison's tick damage keeps it permanently charged. so auto a minion at full health, wait for your hands to turn that beautiful shade of snot-extracting green, and auto the nearest enemy champion.
Here's a video detailing Twitch's 100-0 combo. It's fairly mechanically demanding so you'll have to get the hang of it.
Other than this there's only one other combo that exists on Twitch:
By far the most important aspect of playing Twitch. Skin choice says a lot about you and your values. Depending on your skin choice, this can be a nice detail to add onto your CV when applying for a job. A firm handshake and a Whistler Village Twitch preference is worth a lot more than an engineering degree.
As of April 2021, these are my rankings of Twitch's skins.
|Kingpin Twitch wins the splash art contest by far. But unfortunately, in game it looks like someone dipped my sweet rat in green paint, and his crossbow looks like it was built by Garen or something.|
|Whistler Village Twitch despite having default animations is one of my favourite. How can your opponents not respect the drip when you have a trenchcoat that smashing. This skin feels beefy and precise and the slicked-back, grey hair is badass.|
|Imagine grinding to honour level 5 for this garbage. The skin even comes with a jester's collar to remind you of how much of a clown you are for picking this over Grey Warwick and then choosing to run it too.|
|Nothing beats scurrying away in a pinstripe coat just to reappear and introduce the enemy team to your little friend. This skin looks great in game, even with default animations. It has a custom gattling sound for your autos which is a nice touch.|
|Let them stare. They don't define you. Great sound effects, the most alpha chad in-game design, a moral compass that will allow you to overthrow the tyrannical government. What more could you want?|
|This skin's pretty cute. Turns Rat into a trash panda which is something I'm still trying to decide if I'm ok with. But he looks like Sly Cooper so that's neat.|
|Regardless of the team, this skin actually pretty cool. Sleek design, futuristic assets, spectacles, Gamer headset: activated. The skin looks alright overall, but nothing special.|
|This skin is a real disappointment for being one of the few Twitch skins with custom animations. A quirky gas mask included for muffled voicelines that add 'character' to the skin apparently. The darker poison colour and the passive icon look like what could have been pitched as the base animations for Twitch during the character concept meeting, except whoever thought of this was probably fired and was punished by having their idea repurposed into a skin to make more money for the small indie company, Riot Games. Even then, the worst part of this skin is the auto attack sound. What is this weak ***, pew-pew, garbage excuse for a damage sound that is invading my eardrums? It almost makes the voicelines sound good. Don't buy this.|
|This is probably my favourite Twitch skin. Really cool design that drastically changes the character. Overall it feels like the most bang for your buck. Light blue animations are refreshing and feel sharper, works really nicely with AP Twitch. All the animations look good, and sound crisp and piercing. Even the auto attacks feel like they do more damage with this skin. Not to mention every chroma it has looks good too.|
|Purple Schmurple. This skin is for e-boys and TFT players. Pitched-up voicelines are intended to emasculate and humiliate you. Plus this skin has a heavy emphasis on cuteness which implies that Twitch in his base form is not cute. This notion is unacceptable for obvious reasons. The worst part is that it doesn't even look good in game. All it has is purple animations.|
|Holy **** it's beautiful. The animations, the model, the colours. Finally some variety in the custom animation Twitch skins. I can't lie and say I wasn't hoping we'd get a Crime City Nightmare skin but we'll take it, man. The only gripe I have with this skin is that it's not very thematically correct. Twitch is the king of ****. And this skin is neither kingly nor ****. Other than that- thank you rito I'm gonna go get my mom's credit card right now oh my god tha|
- You can use Ambush and then immediately recall in the delay before the stealth activate to recall while in stealth.
- The range of your E and R are the same, so you can use the ring that appears around you indicating your E range when you have a passive stack on something to know how much range your R will give you.
Thanks for reading, friend!
I had a lot of fun making this. I'm hoping it'll be useful in some way or the other, even if all it gave you was an overwhelming sense of disgust and a shameful giggle.
