Hi, I'm Velkus, an AD carry main who LOVES. THIS. RAT. I'm going to be honest with you right now, this build is centered entirely around Runaan's Hurricane, so I'm going to talk about that item a lot. The reason for this is math. Warning: the next paragraph is math that is not necessary to know how to play Twitch, so skip it if you'd like. Assume you have full build, and assume we're ignoring armor. With a regular adc build including Infinity Edge and Phantom dancer, you will have 55% (50% if you have statikk shiv) crit chance and your crit will do 250% damage. With 50% crit chance and 250% damage, this means that if you are auto attacking enough, your attacks will average out to doing 175% of your AD per auto attack. With a Runaan's build, your damage output depends on the number of things you are hitting. Runaan's gives you two secondary auto attacks that do 50% damage each. This means that if you're hitting 3 things, you're doing a garunteed 200% of your AD, so for a teamfight when twitch can hit multiple champions at once, the damage on this build is higher. If you are in a 1v1, the damage is lower than a regular IE/PD build. However if you are hitting ANYTHING else with the Runaan's passive you are getting lifesteal from that damage, and the lack of an infinity edge gives you room for a Bloodthirster and a Blade of the Ruined King. So lifesteal, very heal. To summarize: in teamfigts, Runaan's undoubtedly takes the cake for damage output, but it's definitely questionable in a 1v1 situation.

Twitch isn't the weakest early game champion, but he's definitely not the strongest. Most of the time you'll want to just farm up and get kills if they fall into your lap, don't go too far out of your way to get them.

Mid game is where this twitch build starts to shine. Once you get Runaan's, you should try to push lane and get tier 1 tower if you haven't already and group with your team. Force fights around dragons, towers, and buffs. You should have a lot of damage at this point.

Late game you are nearly unkillable. Stick with your team and try to fight in small paths in the jungle so you can surprise the enemy team from stealth and get off a good ult.

This is your zone, teamfights are where you are incredibly strong with Runaan's. Try to use your stealth before the fight so you can get in a good position without the enemy seeing you because once you are out of stealth, the only thing you can do to get out of a rough spot is flash. Look to ult when the enemy team is tightly grouped or in a single file line. Continue to do the things that every ad carry should do: kite, position well, auto attack, and don't die.

That's pretty much all I can tell you about playing zero crit Twitch. I really hope that you enjoy playing it, now GO REK SOME SCRUBS!
