Threats & Synergies
Kog'maw has a huge advantage on you in lane. If played perfectly from Kog he'll harass you during his W and never let you in while its down. Your best bet is to push with your W and E onto the creeps early to try and make him fight the creeps instead of you. At level 6 dodge his ults and wait until you get your BotRK to win.
Annoying champion to deal with but you outscale her so hard it's hilarious. Just survive laning phase by getting as much CS as possible without dying and you'll be alright! The second you get your BotRK you poop on her.
Lucian is disgustingly broken atm and should be permabanned. Try to get him banned or suffer the wrath.
He's a lane bully that also scales pretty well. When he gets his trinity force you won't win duels against him without dodging everything he has.
I'd say this matchup is probably twitch's worst pre-6 besides corki. She can outtrade you with her explosive shot auto attack and depending on your supports she'll likely bully you out or just kill you when she gets rocket jump. Like every other matchup don't try to force a fight without your BotRK.
EASY MATCHUP!! You outscale her, you poop on her in lane, she actually can't do anything. Don't over commit yourself into anything and you should just naturally win unless she's a better player than you! Then she was going to win regardless of what you did! But that's okay, you're still learning :D.
Runes are pretty simple. I think Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed is the most efficient/best for Twitch. Greater Seal of Armor is for survival throughout the game. Greater Glyph of Magic Resist is for surviving magic damage and Greater Glyph of Attack Speed gives you more damage output. Greater Mark of Attack Damage is necessary for all ADCs. I honestly just take what the best ADC in Korea is using. I also have Lemon help me.
|(Passive) Deadly Venom|
Cooldown: 16 seconds
You'll want to have this up every time you want to go for an ult in a team fight. You deal way more damage with your attack speed steroid activated while you're ulting. It also gives you a vision advantage by letting you surprise them from stealth.
When you open up from stealth activate your ulti, you'll usually want to be on their squishiest targets depending on how much damage you do compared to them. If they have all their CC available, you'll want to wait a few seconds in stealth near them until they spend their CC on something else.
A strategy I use a lot when I can do loads of damage is go into stealth and open up on their ADC and then Flash backwards when they use a CC. Their front-line will try to go on you and you'll already either have killed their ADC or got him really low.
(W) Venom Cask|
Cooldown: 13/12/11/10/9 seconds
Farming tip: The best way to push out a wave is to Venom Cask the whole wave and then auto attack each melee minion twice and the ranged ones once. Then Contaminate! Don't use rat-ta-tat-tat for waves ever!
Cooldown: 12/11/10/9/8 seconds
Cooldown: 120/110/100 seconds
If you're going for a duel you need to use it the second you pop out of stealth. It makes your Contaminate deal more damage and every auto attack deal more.
Try to be near max range, but not at full max range when fighting so that you can chase people down while still being able to hit them.
Start with Doran's Blade, Health Potion, Stealth Ward
If 1450g+: Bilgewater Cutlass + 3 Health Potions
If 800g+: 2 Long Swords + 3 Health Potions
If 1240g+: Vampiric Scepter, Doran's Blade, 2 Health Potions, 1 Mana Potion
If 440g+: Doran's Blade + 4 Health Potions
From there you'll want to finish your Blade of the Ruined King, buying Boots when you can. Finish Berserker's Greaves after finishing BotRK.
After Blade of the Ruined King, build Youmuu's Ghostblade. Build the Long Swords first.
After Youmuu's Ghostblade is where what to build becomes a good question.
-If the enemy doesn't have armor build a Phantom Dancer.
-If the enemy does have armor build Last Whisper.
If you went Phantom Dancer, build Infinity Edge after it, and then Last Whisper.
If you went Last Whisper, build Infinity Edge next.
You get insanely strong with the Blade of the Ruined King + Youmuu's Ghostblade combo. Make sure you abuse it by walking up into mid lane out of sight and stealth onto your opponent for free kills. You can do this at almost any point in the game unless you're extremely behind.
At level one you can put a point in your Ambush (Q) and sit mid behind the wall until the minions come. Stealth onto the enemy mid laner and watch them blow a summoner spell! This strategy was used by imp in OGN.
