Hey guys, I'm DiedeVelde, an unranked LOL player who wants to help people. I joined League of Legends something like a month ago, and it was the best thing ever. Twitch is my very first champion that I bought, and that champion has given me some PENTA'S. Why you should really play him, is because he is sneaky, strong and easy to play.

There is a reason everybody takes Flash, and you should know it. Flash is great for escapes, engages or awesome kills. You can also use Flash very badly, but hopefully that doesn't happen.

This is the spell I normally pick for Twitch, but you can get any spell you want. Heal just heals you. And if you stand close to an allie, you allie heals too.

I don't really use this spell much, but it is great in team fights. It makes a barrier around you, which protects you for a little while, and then it runs out. As simple as that.

This is actually a better spell for supports, but it is great if you are a greedy player, who wants all the kills. Exhaust slows an enemy champion. NICE!

You can play Twitch with a lot of different runes, but these are my favorites.

Press the Attack
If you hit the same enemy 3 times in a row with basic attacks, you will do 50-120 bonus adaptive damage. This one is great for Twitch, because he can poke a lot better against an ADC or a support.

If you kill an enemy, it will restore 15% of your missing health and give a bonus 25 gold. This one is great if you get first kill or just an early kill. Always try to get ahead in gold when you play an ADC. This rune helps you a lot with that.

Legend: Alacrity
Gain 3% attack speed plus an additional 1.5% per legend point. 20 legend points per champion kill, 20 legend points for epic monter takedowns, 5 legend points for large monster kills and 1 legend point for a minion kill. This just means that you get permanent attack speed if you kill things, and that is exectly what Twitch needs.

Coup de Grace
Deal 10% more damage to champions with 40% health. Also gives 9 attack damage or 15 ability power for 6 seconds after a champion kill. You can use this rune really good. Poke the **** out of the enemy ADC, and he will die a lot quicker with this rune.

Sudden Impact
After exiting your Q ( Ambush), you will get 10 lethality or 8 magic penetration for 5 seconds. Every time you come back in your lane. Do it while using Ambush, so you will be able to do a lot more damage.

Eyeball Collection
After every champion kill, you will gain an additional 0,6 attack damage or 1 ability power. You can collect 20 eyes, 2 eyes per champion takedown and 1 for a ward takedown. This just explains itself quite good I think.

Doran's Blade
Doran's Blade gives you +8 attack damage, +80 health and 3% life steal. You can also get a Long Sword, but with the Doran's Blade you'll get extra health and life steal. It just depends on your play style.

Runaan's Hurricane
Runaan's Hurricane gives you 40% attack speed, 30% critical strike chance and 7% movement speed. Runaan's Hurricane passive is wind fury. You will be able to shoot two extra bolts of fire, which deal 40% of your attack damage. Get this as fast as possible to farm faster.

Infinity Edge
Infinity Edge gives 70 attack damage and 20% critical strike. Passive: Critical hits deal 250% damage instead of 200%. This is a huge thing to buy at the start of the game, because you will be super strong.

Berserker's Greaves
Berserker's Greaves gives you 35% attack speed. Passive: 45 movement speed. ALWAYS BUY BOOTS!

Phantom Dancer
Phantom Dancer gives you 45% attack speed, 30% critical strike chance and 5% movement speed. Passive: spectral waltz, within 500 units of an enemy champion you see, you gain 7% movement speed. Passive: Lament, your basic attack causes the enemy's attack to deal 12% less damage. This is just an OP items... Just buy it.

Lord Dominik's Regards
Lord Dominik's Regards gives you 50 extra attack damage. Passive: Giant Slayer, grants up to 20% extra damage to champions with greater health than you. Passive: Last Whisper, 35% armour penetration. This is one of my favorite items, because you will kill the biggest tank champions easily

The Bloodthirster
Bloodthirster gives 80 extra attack damage. Passive: A shield that absorbs 50-350 damage. (based on champion level) Passive: 20% life steal. You can always buy something else instead of Bloodthirster, but it gives you life steal, and that is very handy.

Passive: Deadly Venom
Twitch basic attacks infect enemy champions, dealing 1/2/3/4/5 true damage every second for 6 seconds. This stacks up 5 times. If the enemy champion is infected, you can use Contaminate. This kinda acts like a lesser Ignite.

Q: Ambush
After 1,5 seconds, Twitch becomes invisible for 10/11/12/13/14 seconds. Twitch also gains bonus movement speed while invisible. Every time you come back in lane, use Ambush. If you attack an enemy, you will get additional attack speed and you will be a lot quicker. Ambush and Sudden Impact are the best combo Twitch can have.

W: Venom Cask
Twitch throws a cask of venom that explodes. It leaves a cloud of venom behind for 3 seconds, that slows the enemy champion, and stacks up Deadly Venom. You can use Venom Cask really good with Contaminate. If an enemy champion comes to close, just throw your W in his/hers face, and use Contaminate. You can also use this to slow you enemy down, for a teammate to kill the enemy.

E: Contaminate
Contaminate deals 20/35/50/65/80 damage to an enemy infected by Deadly Venom. Also gains additional damage depending on the stacks of Deadly Venom. This is in the early game not super strong, but in mid and late game, this is how you steal every kill. ;D

R: Spray and Pray
Twitch gains 20/30/40 additional attack damage for 5 seconds. He shoots giant piercing bolts that can pass through several champions and minions. This is your power spike. Try to get as fast as possible level 6, use Ambush, and then Spray and Pray. You will kill your enemy very, very quickly.

Early Game

Twitch isn't that strong in the early game. If the jungler from the enemy comes bot very early, you'll probably die. Twitch doesn't really do much damage and is very squishy. So if you play against a mis fortune, it will be hard.

What I normally do, is just farm very safe. Keep looking at your minimap and try to locate where the enemy jungler is. You can also predict the enemy junglers path. If you play with a Morgana or something, let her Q, and shoot the **** out of her. Try to get the first kill, but do it safely. Don't towerdive with Twitch, because he doesn't have the health early game. Try to get your jungler bot and get the first kill. While you do all of that at the same time, FARM.

The best thing to do is farm. Try to get as much possible gold before you go back. Sometimes the enemy pokes you a lot and you have to go back. Don't worry, you can probably buy boots or something, and some extra potions. If the enemy jungler is dumb enough to gank top, farm the **** out of that lane. If you have 1300 gold (which is the best start), go back and get a B. F. Sword.
Back to Top

Mid Game

In mid game, when you have your Runaan's Hurricane and your Infinity Edge, GANK. At this point, Twitch is pretty strong. If you gank mid, you can get some kills and some extra money. You can sneak up to the enemy and kill them with whatever combo you use. If there is a teamfight, try to stay behind. You are still squishy, but very strong. Use your R ( Spray and Pray} to do a lot of damage, maybe throw in your W, and then use your E.

If your allie is like a 8/0/2 Shen, don't bother ganking, he will probably be good.

Also, try to get a lot of jungle view, if you have control over the jungle, you are playing smart. You can see every gank coming, and you can see if that beautiful blue buff is alive to get. And don't forget to get some dragons.

Late Game

In late game, there will be a lot of team fights. As I said in mid game. Stay behind your tanks or team mates. A strong Twitch will probably be focused, so thats why you stay behind. If you die, the whole team fight is lost. You don't care about the others, you are the best, you are the strongest, you are the leader!!! Kidding. But your team really depends on you and your smart little brain.

Try to get as much dragons and barons as possible, but that is obvious.

If you don't see the enemy team, be careful with split pushing. If you have your Runaan's Hurricane, you will be great a split pushing, but as I said, YOU ARE SQUISHY. If your whole team died, and your left alone. Don't bother 1v5'ing them, it won't help, you'll die, and the whole world crumbles into ash. ;D

So, you made it to the end of this awesome tutorial on Twitch. (the best champ alive)

I hope you liked this guide, and maybe it was even helpfull. This is my second guide, and I will be making more in the future. It was very fun to make, but it took me a long time. Don't ask!

So, again, I hope you enjoyed it, and hopefully I'll see someone use my build and runes somewhere in the near future.
