With the new changes to the jungle, Twitch (with a good leash) can now conquer buffs with ease. This here is a guide about how I play jungle twitch and get scores like these: [imgext=] [center][title]!!!WARNING!!![/title][/center] Realize that this build works well with my game style and how I play as a player. Each person is different in how they approach situations and how comfortable they are with the champion they are playing. If you do not get results the few first games, keep giving it a try and attempt to make it work. If it still doesn't, I suggest you find a different guide or champion to suit your game style. I will be uploading videos of my gameplay soon though for viewing. Green

I promise to keep things simple and to the point in this guide so that you can get your information and get out. But please understand this one chapter out of the rest, because it will make it easier on you in the end. Twitch is literally the best gank you can ask for. He is invisible to the opponent right up to killing them, what else could you ask for? His passive adds poison that stacks which in combination slows your target and secures the kill all within his abilities. [highlight]He was born to gank. [/highlight] With that being said, yes I do run twitch as a jungler but the only way you are going to maximize from this guide is if you go and gank. Do not waste time on Wraiths, Wolves, and Golems anymore. [highlight]Get your buffs and get ganking.[/highlight] Twitch can get underleveled very quickly and can't clear the jungle very well either, thats why you need to gank so you can keep your levels up and keep getting gold. After your first 2 or 3 ganks your opponents will begin to purchase pink wards. This does not stop you but rather helps you in the long run. With a pink ward, your ganks went from GOD TIER to SEMI-GOD TIER because, you can still gank them with red and still kill them. All they have done is wasted 125g on their lane while your teammates can spend their gold freely putting them ahead. [highlight]REMEMBER[/highlight]. As twitch you have the biggest hidden passive, everyone wants to kill you when they see you. Don't be surprised if they invade you at the beginning of the game just make sure you have some lane mates there to help with the level 1 fight, if you are smart your team can usually come out on top. Invasion, even if it turns out in a first blood for the other team, tends to hurt them in the long run. Don't waste time. If all your lanes are pushed, request respectfully to your team to pull back a bit for you to gank. If there is still nothing to do, go into your jungle and jungle or go harass their jungler. [highlight]Being invisible has its pro's, you can catch a relaxed jungler off guard and steal his buff and his life[/highlight] (Cheesy I know ;) ). Last but not least, You are squishy so be smart on who you pick fights with 1 on 1. You might get a lot of kills but theres a lot of champions out there who can destroy you. [highlight]Play smart and remember the name of the game is always ganking. [/highlight]

[imgext=] [highlight]For Runes I get:[/highlight] [.]Attack Speed Marks [.]Armor Seals [.]Attack Speed Glyphs [.]Health Quints [highlight]Reasons:[/highlight] Attack speed, in my opinion, is key on Twitch over damage. I build Twitch a lot like Teemo in the sense that I maximize the poison affect of his passive and the items I get to create insane damage. The quicker you deal the "on hit" affects and get 6 stacks with his passive, [highlight]the more damage you deal.[/highlight] Armor seals for increased Jungle durability. Health Quints for overall Durability.

[img=skills/twitch/p.png] - [highlight]Deadly Venom[/highlight] - Twitch's attacks infect the target with Deadly Venom, which deals damage each second, stacks up to 6 times, and lasts up to 6 seconds. (10 Damage per stack, per second) Twitches Passive is great, mixed with attack speed and items it makes for a great additional damage dealer. [img=skills/twitch/q.png] - [highlight]Ambush[/highlight] - After 1.25 seconds, Twitch becomes stealthed for 10/20/30/40/50 seconds. If Twitch attacks a unit while Stealthed, he gains 30/40/50/60/70% attack speed for up to 10 seconds, depending on how long he was stealthed before attacking. This is what makes Twitch an amazing ganker, as long as there is not a Pink Ward or Oracles you can appear right behind people (No need for a gap closer like most junglers). I max this ability 2nd. [img=skills/twitch/w.png] - [highlight]Debilitating Poison[/highlight] - Slows nearby enemy champions' move speed by 30%, plus 6% per Deadly Venom they have. Depending on how many stacks you have on your enemy, this ability will slow them. What more could you ask for? Slowing an enemy to make it easier for you to stay on them and kill them. I get this at level 4 and max it last (The ability only scales on CD, and you aren't using it that often so its fine to max last) [img=skills/twitch/e.png] - [highlight]EXPUNGE[/highlight] - Deals 30/60/90/120/150 (+1) magic damage to each nearby poisoned enemy, plus 20/30/40/50/60 additional damage per stack of Deadly Venom applied to I max this ability first. This is the smite of champions, right when an enemy thinks they escaped you. EXPUNGE. Use this ability always last, its your kill securing mechanism. [img=skills/twitch/r.png] - [highlight]Spray and Pray[/highlight] - Twitch's attacks become long range, passing through units, and he gains 15/25/35 Attack Damage. A very great AOE ability. This is perfect for team fights or ganking multiple people in a nearby vacinity, it will not only shread their health but add your passive stacks on all of them allowing you to slow them and EXPUNGE them.

[highlight]Keep in mind![/highlight] Its always good to build to your situation in game. I am showing you the damage items, if you are dieing fast be smart and get defensive items. Like [imgsmall=items/frozen-mallet.png] [imgsmall=items/banshees-veil.png] [imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png]. The more defensive items you add though, the less attack speed you'll have, the less damage. The main thing is play smart, understand each champion and what they can do to you. Bloodrazor and Witends should give you enough defense to survive. Plus the Runes and Masteries, you should be fine if, again, you are smart and are not greedy. I build Twitch almost exactly as you would Teemo. The more attack speed you have the more damage his passive deals out, the quicker you can slow opponents with "W", the quicker you can expunge enemies also. I have including two different types of builds for AP and AD damage. Both are based on attack speed. The AP Build gives you a bit more tankiness at the sacrifice of damage, while the AD build gives you more damage at the sacrifice of tankiness. [highlight]Starting Items:[/highlight] [.][imgsmall=items/cloth-armor.png] [.][imgsmall=items/health-potion5.png] Twitch is again super squishy, the cloth armor helps take the hits at early game stages. Potions are also key on Twitch due to his squish, always have potions on you and always use them when jungling (Until late game when you kill them so fast they can't damage you haha) [highlight]AP Early Game:[/highlight] [.][imgsmall=items/berserkers-greaves.png] [.][imgsmall=items/malady.png] [.][imgsmall=items/madreds-razors.png] Try and get berserkers pretty early, it will increase your attack speed and let you chase down players on ganks and get fed sooner. Malady will give you a good damage, attack speed and AP increase to make your hits harder. Turn your Cloth Armor into a Madreds also pretty soon if you find yourself needing to jungler more, it will make your life much much easier. [highlight]AD Early Game:[/highlight] [.][imgsmall=items/berserkers-greaves.png] [.][imgsmall=items/infinity-edge.png] [.][imgsmall=items/zeal.png] Same as AP. Try and get boots and a Zeal soon, so you can raise your crit percentage and your movement speed to chase people down. The Infinity Edge will give you the damage you need to kill people. Remember you are super squishy with these items only so take that into consideration. [highlight]AP Mid Game:[/highlight] [.][imgsmall=items/madreds-bloodrazor.png] [.][imgsmall=items/wits-end.png] These items will push your damage through the roof. This is around the time team fights start breaking out. Use your damage on the proper enemy carry. [highlight]AD Mid Game:[/highlight] [.][imgsmall=items/phantom-dancer.png] [.][imgsmall=items/giants-belt.png] [.][imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png] AD Mid game is where you should be finishing your phantom dancer. Now, if you are dieing around this time, its time you invested in defensive items. If you are going crit build, nothing helps more than a Warmogs and Atmas for more health and crit, as well as damage. If you decide to go crit though, make sure you have your Infitity Edge and Phantom Dancer. After those items the rest is up to you if you want to go glass cannon or be useful ;). [highlight]Late Game:[/highlight] If it gets to late game this means that either you fed, or are fed but your team fed. Twitch is pretty much the carry or a waste of space. If you get fed early, games tend to end before you get to late game. But if it happens to get this late. Look into purchasing more defense or a Frozen Mallet, pretty much depends on the situation. [title]OTHER KEY ITEMS[/title] [.][imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png] Vision Wards help you kill other Pinks that the enemy place, although don't worry about it to often because you need all the gold you can get and 125g could set you back if purchasing often. [.][imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png] Reward your lane mates for helping you get kills, ward their lanes for them with some extra cash. [highlight]Its always good to be the player buying wards especially in solo que ELO.[/highlight] [.][imgsmall=items/oracles-elixir.png] Sometimes the enemy team will dedicate itself to ruining you with Pinks. If you can't make ganks and its setting you behind sometimes its nice to get an Oracles and just play safe and clear out there wards. If you don't get a lot of kills, just making them waste money helps your team.

Ok Now here is the fun part. When it comes to jungling as Twitch, the only reason you "Jungle" him is to get access to the follow: [.]Buffs [.]Not letting your enemies know where you are I could care less about paths, wraiths, wolves, etc. Red Buff is pretty much all you need (Although Blue is great with Twitch's minor mana problem). [imgext=] I start off the game right at [highlight]Red Buff[/highlight] and I ask our mid lane and other team mates to watch and leash Red for me. Get [highlight]Expunge[/highlight] as your first ability and shoot red buff up to 6 stacks of your passive then smite it, then shoot it a couple more times (let the poison do some damage) then use Expunge to finish off Red buff. Only use Expunge once otherwise you will run out mana for your gank. Once Red Buff is dead you will level up, pick your "Q" Ambush and head out for the nearest Top or Bot lane (depends on your team side). [highlight]Be sure to be in communication with your team and let them know you are coming.[/highlight] Start your "Q" at the lane bush, you only have 10 seconds of being invisible so take that into consideration. Now look at this sweet setup here. No wards, Red Buff, Invisibility, Level 1 enemies, and a surprise advantage. 8 Times out of 10 you will get first blood if done correctly. The Red Buff and your allies summoner spells should keep your enemy from escaping. Pick the squishiest enemy, They die faster :D. From here on you are on your own. I don't have a set path after this because it changes every time. Its up to you to choose how you will go on after that first gank. Sometimes I get blue because after that first gank you are pretty low on health and mana, you might need to even b. [title]LATE GAME - POST JUNGLING and TEAM FIGHTS[/title] By the time teamfights roll around, your "Q" should be on low cooldown and you should be able to be invisible for 30-50 seconds. So even when grouped up, always be invisible so they can't initiate on you (because they will try). Always focus the proper carry in team fights. You know who that is and make sure your team knows too. [highlight]Also save your ultimate for team fights[/highlight], you can bring an entire team to 1/3 health easily with your ultimate and expunge if they are stacked up well enough. Mix that with your teams damage and you should always come out on top. Remember you are also invisible, [highlight]if you see the enemy pushing a lane try and backdoor[/highlight], you are Twitch after all. Mixed with the proper positioning in Team Fights and the right amount of backdooring, you should be able to secure yourself a win in Late Game if you didn't in Early Game stages. Just remember always be Ganking, always keep vision on important things (Dragon, Baron), always get your buffs, and always tear people up.

Twitch is a lot of fun to play, probably the most fun champion I have played. He is even more fun when you get a lot of kills with him and you begin to see the other team rage about it. Ill leave you with some last small advice, [highlight]You can die much faster than you can kill people[/highlight]. You need to always have the advantage in order off set that disadvantage. With that in mind, as Twitch always play smart and don't get greedy. [highlight]GREED KILLS YOU![/highlight] I hope you enjoyed my guide and I hope you do well on your games. Keep in mind there are plenty other Twitch guides out there, don't take what I say as Law but look into different styles of other players as well. Create a style of gameplay as jungle Twitch that makes you a better player and fits your style of play. Feel free to give me a Like if you enjoyed the guide and what I had to say. I am also always willing to accept new knowledge so if you have suggestions or comments about the guide please feel free to let me know in the comments or add me in game: [highlight]TheGreenOneLikes [/highlight] Thank you very much and happy jungling!
