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.
Twitch, or the one you hate....
Twitch is a fascinating champion to me . He's not a ninja, yet I feel he is the champion acting the most like it, with Evelynn. But Evelynn is garbage compared to him, so let's stay focused on the rat.
First of, why did I call him "The Hate Pest" ? Because is undoubtly when of the biggest cause of hate , both by his team and enemy . If he feeds ( And most Twitch will ) then he is one of the most useless champion in the game. But if he gets fed... Possibly one of the easiest Pentakill champion you will ever see.
Twitch is obviously not an easy champion to play. What most people don't understand about him is that the player playing Twitch must act exactly like Twitch, and that means being a rat. Twitch has to pick his fights, to know when retreating much more than any other champs.
If you are still interested, read on.
What's amazing about him
-Very frustrating to enemies
-Can bring everything to the ground given proper time
-One of the best, or the best ganker
-Different playstyle from other champions.
What's making most player quit playing this champion
-Depending on your ELO, he will be focused most of the time
-Very squishy ( I mean VERY VERY )
-Hard to OWN with
General Tactics (The Part everybody reads if nothing else)
Passive : Twitch's normal attacks poison his enemy, dealing DOT stackable up to 6 times
Q : Twitch cloaks and gains an attack speed bonus when decloaking on attack.
W : The more poisoned your enemy, the more he is slowed
R : Long range missiles replace your normal attacks, with doubled AS
WHAT THE NOOBS DO WITH TWITCH AND MAKE THEM FAIL PATHETICALLY
- Use E at beginning : E is by no means a fight tearer, it's a last hit, and amazing one at that , you dont even need to chase him, he's done
- Use R on towers : WHATAREYOUTHINKING ?
- Build AP Twitch : Twitch doesnt rely on AP, thats the most stupid you could do
- Build AS Twitch : Twitch already builds an amazing AS. If you dont pair up with damage, he's basicly throwing needles
Why does people often hate twitch as a team member ?
- Twitch is a ganker, and noob Twitch will often quit lane without telling or momentum to execute fail gank
- An intelligent Twitch won't come to rescue you if you messed up, at least at early game, specially if your going to die anyway
- Twitch is extremely easy to feed on early game.
LANING & GAME STRATEGIES
Early : Get a Doran's Shield and a Hp pot, then head for your lane. Despite what people think most of the time, Twitch is as good middling as a lane partner. Now , your only concern is surviving. Twitch isn't much of an early game killer but can grasp kills given the good opportunity. What you don't want to do early game is spam your skills. Your first skill should be Q , so if you are top/bot, you should cloak and inspect the brush at beginning.Against Melees, you want to attack them as much as possible to get your poison to annoy them as much as possible. As soonn as you have 750 G , recall and get an Avarice Blade. The avarice will speed up your gold making and upgrade your damage potential with crits you should already have at great rate with your runes and summoner's masteries. Next up is Mobility's boots, then another Avarice. At that point, you can gank.
Mid : If the enemy team is stupid, they wont consider you dangerous until you get a 3-4 kills without any death, even then, depending on their ELO, they might just ignore you as their kills might be higher than your team's. Now , start building your BF Sword for your upcoming Infinity Edge. When that is done, you will be quite dangerous on the field. If you are getting steady kills and assists, get an Occult's, else build Phantom Dancers.
Late : This is where you shine even more than Jax. Get a Black Cleaver if your facing tanks or a thornmail if DPSers are focusing you.
EDIT : This guide is officially out of play. Twitch has been nerfed to the ground and I do not enjoy playing him anymore. Thus, it should not be used.
