While the young science of techmaturgy does much to advance civilization, its research and use in Zaun pushes the boundaries of morality on a daily basis. Zaun, choked with pollution from the countless factories and laboratories that spew waste into the environment, suffers greatly. As polluted as Zaun is above-ground, its subterranean levels are far worse. All of Zaun's runoff waste pooled together in its sewers, mixing into a toxic and mysterious concoction. A single plague rat rose from this alchemical nightmare - Twitch. Unlike his lesser evolved cousins, Twitch became as sentient as anyone else... provided they were as insane as he. A seeming byproduct of the evolutionary brew that spawned him was maniacal insanity, albeit in a functional form. Twitch came to the League of Legends to represent himself ''as the only one of his kind'' on the Fields of Justice. Since then, he has found a generous benefactor in the city that gave him his evolutionary sentience - Zaun. Twitch is one of Zaun's premier champions in the League, and as such he fights for Zaun when political disputes between Valoran's city-states arise. Twitch has publically stated that his goal is to gain enough influence and materiel from his work in the League to try to recreate the process by which he gained his sentience. While many challenges lie ahead in his quest - one of the largest being his own insanity - were he to succeed, it would mean a bold and brazen step forward in the evolution of all of Runeterra. Zaun has pledged its support for Twitch in his quest, though it remains to be seen what Zaun's ulterior motives are in the matter.

Twitch - The Plague Rat

In this build I'm going to explain how to play with twitch properly.

When you want to play with Twitch there is some requirement:
  • Twitch
  • Some brains
  • The ability to last hit minnions in your lane when you don't go mid
  • The ability to gank someone and kill-steal if you need it, with your Expunge
  • The ability to have fun.
Back to Top

Pro's and Con's

Pros:
  • Best carry in the game.
  • Great minnion spammer
  • Great for scouting
  • Can escape with Ambush

Cons:
  • Squishy
  • Can be CC'ed easily
  • You will be focused first
  • Oracle's and wards are your enemies
Back to Top

Abilities

Expunge

Twitch's passive ability. This does damage over a period of 6 seconds. The DoT does more damage per stack. Stacks up to 6.

Twitch's "Q" key is his stealth. This ability stealths Twitch for an amount of time. The amount of time stealthed is increased per skill level. Stay stealthed as long as you can for max attack speed bonus.

Twitch's "W" key. This is a slow, and is great ability for catching enemies. This uses a decent amount of mana, but the % of the slow is increased per stack of . Stack up your poison before you use Debilitating Poison to maximize the slow duration and percentage!

Expunge Twitch's "E" key. This is his bread and butter early game. This starts doing great damage when in ranks 3+. This ability does Magic Damage for each stack of. This is a great finisher spell. When you pop out to gank, stack up as many stacks of poison before you hit Expunge to maximize your damage!

Twitch's "R" key. This is Twitch's ulti, and this is Twitch's bread and butter mid and late game. This will mow down enemies that stand in front of you! With the new changes in the patch, Spray no longer gives Attack Speed, and now gives Attack Damage per rank. Many see it as a nerf, but I see it as a slight buff. The 'nerf' that people see requires you to build more Attack Speed items, but it grants AD, so taking down your enemies will be even more simpler. In my build, the Attack Speed sections offer the best possible AS items for Twitch, so keep reading on!
