[imgext=] Hi and welcome to my [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] guide. This is my first guide so please don't be too hard to me :) I´m a gold player from EU West and i want to tell you something about [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] and how I play him. I know there are many other good guides but I hope I can still teach you something with my guide. Many people think [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] is a trollchamp cause Riot nerfed him realy hard. But why did they nerf him? In 2011 [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] was a permanent ban cause he was to strong. He had to many attackspeed only with[imgsmall=skills/twitch/q.png]. He just killed someone to fast. In my opinion [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] is still a realy strong champion. You just have to play him good but many people don´t understand this. Sometimes if you pick [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] they flame you. Just ignore them and play him and show them what a [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] can do! Most of the time the enemies underestimate you too. This is realy good for you. Why? Look at [highlight]"Twitch ranked" (Chapter 17).[/highlight] I play [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] pretty offensive. I don´t buy big defense Items. I just position myself defensively in teamfights. You think I need defensive items? Look at this: [imgext=] These are only a few games from many wins with him. As is said you just need a good position in teamfights.

[title]Pros:[/title] [highlight][.]Best ganker[/highlight] [highlight][.]Very much attackspeed[/highlight] [highlight][.]Stealth[/highlight] [highlight][.]Good pusher[/highlight] [highlight][.]Can jungle[/highlight] [highlight][.]Good roam[/highlight] [highlight][.]Very funny Champion[/highlight] [highlight][.]Good damage[/highlight] [highlight][.]Best ultimate ever [/highlight] [highlight][.]Very good for solo Q[/highlight] [title]Cons[/title] [highlight] [.]Squishy[/highlight] [highlight][.]Pretty slow jungle speed[/highlight] [highlight][.]Hard to play[/highlight] [highlight][.]Easy to counter with Oracle[/highlight] [highlight][.]Low range (Not with the Ultimate)[/highlight] [highlight][.]No escape[/highlight]

[imgext=] Why do I use those runes? [highlight]"Greater Mark of Strength"[/highlight] helps me to jungle faster. You can replace them with Armorpenetration. [highlight]"Greater Quintessence of Strength"[/highlight] helps me to jungle faster. You can replace them with Armorpenertation too. [highlight]"Greater Glyph of Alacrity"[/highlight] cause attackspeed is always good for Twitch. [highlight]More attackspeed = faster passive stack = faster E[/highlight] But you can replace them too with Armor or Magic resistance. [highlight]"Greater Seal of Resilience"[/highlight] cause you really need pretty much Armor for jungling with Twitch. [highlight]Note:[/highlight] Armor helps you to kill junglecreeps faster. Armorpenetration helps you to kill enemies faster.

[title][img=skills/twitch/p.png] Passive: Deadly Venom[/title] [number]Twitch's attacks infect the target with Deadly Venom, which deals damage each second, stacks up to 6 times, and lasts up to 8 seconds.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This is such a great passive. You can do so much burst if you hit 3 or more enemies with your ultimate and you use afterwards your E. Cause of this passive I use the "Greater Seal of Resilience". Attackspeed is realy great for this passive. [title][img=skills/twitch/q.png] Q: Ambush[/title] [number]After 1.25 seconds, Twitch becomes stealthed for 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 seconds. If Twitch attacks a unit while Stealthed, he gains 30 / 45 / 60 / 80 / 100% attack speed for up to 10 seconds, depending on how long he was stealthed before attacking. Cooldown 11seconds Cost 60mana Range 20[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] the best gankspell ever. If you gank, go behind your enemy and kill him with the attackspeed buff. Max this ability as second. [title][img=skills/twitch/w.png] W: Debilitating Poison[/title] [number]Slows nearby enemy champions' move speed by 30%, plus 6% per Deadly Venom they have. 2.5 / 3.25 / 4 / 4.75 / 5.25 second duration. Cooldown 10seconds Cost 80mana Range 200[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] For me it´s pretty useless cause I don´t use it when I gank. I don´t skill it cauase I everytime go behind the enemy to do more normal hit´s so I don´t need the slow. But you can skill it at level 2 or 3. It´s your choice. [title][img=skills/twitch/e.png] E: Expunge[/title] [number]Deals 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to each nearby poisoned enemy, plus 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 additional damage per stack of Deadly Venom applied to them. Cooldown 8seconds Cost 90mana Range 200[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Such a great spell for teamfights and ganks. It does very much dmg if you stack your passive high enough. Max this ability first. [title][img=skills/twitch/r.png] R: Spray and Pray[/title] [number]Twitch gains 15 / 25 / 35 attack damage and his attacks become long range line missiles for 12 seconds, dealing 100% damage and poisoning all enemies hit. During this duration, a maximum of 5 / 6 / 7 missiles can be fired. Cooldown 105 / 90 / 75seconds Cost 150mana Range 1200[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This is the best ultimate i´ve ever seen. You really need to join the teamfights in a good position to do as much dmg as you can with this ultimate to all enemies. Combine this ultimate with your E in teamfights.

I really prefer this skillorder: [imgext=] I don´t use [imgsmall=skills/twitch/w.png] cause I can gank without it. You just have to reposition yourself good. So I can max [imgsmall=skills/twitch/q.png] after [imgsmall=skills/twitch/e.png]. But you can skill like this: [imgext=] But I don´t recommend it to you cause you have no damage if you want to earlygank with level 2. But you can skill like this too: [imgext=] This skillorder is okay. You can earlygank with level 2 and with level 3 you can slow the enemies but [imgsmall=skills/twitch/q.png] only lasts 10 seconds so I think this is pretty stupid too cause you´ll need more time when you gank a lane.

[img=summoners/flash.png][img=summoners/smite.png] [title]Explanation:[/title] I prefer [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png] cause sometimes if you stack up [imgsmall=skills/twitch/p.png], the enemy flahes away from you and you can´t use your [imgsmall=skills/twitch/e.png] to kill him. So you have to use [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png] too to kill him. And it´s the best escape summoner spell. I thick I have nothing to say about [imgsmall=summoners/smite.png]. It´s a must have for a jungler. Other summoner spells instead of [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png]: [img=summoners/exhaust.png] Good slow and reduced attack damage. [img=summoners/ignite.png] Good damage, it can save you some kills. [img=summoners/ghost.png] Good summoner spell for ganks, escapes and a long chase. Not a good choice: [img=summoners/clairvoyance.png][img=summoners/clarity.png][img=summoners/cleanse.png][img=summoners/heal.png][img=summoners/promote.png][img=summoners/revive.png][img=summoners/surge.png][img=summoners/teleport.png]

[center][title]Explanation:[/title][/center] [center][img=items/wriggles-lantern.png][/center] [center]Standard item for a jungler[/center] [highlight][center]You can sell it later for [imgsmall=items/the-bloodthirster.png][/center][/highlight] [center] [img=items/berserkers-greaves.png][/center] [center]I prefer these boots cause you´ll need some attackspeed.[/center] [center]You can use [imgsmall=items/boots-of-mobility.png] or [imgsmall=items/mercurys-treads.png] too[/center] [center][highlight]Remember: more attackspeed = faster [imgsmall=skills/twitch/p.png] stack = faster [imgsmall=skills/twitch/e.png] = more damage[/highlight][/center] [center][img=items/infinity-edge.png][/center] [center]Crit and more damage. This is what we need after [imgsmall=items/zeal.png]. Some people dont like "Infinity Edge Twitch", but it´s pretty good for him. You should have enough attackspeed with [imgsmall=items/berserkers-greaves.png] and [imgsmall=items/zeal.png]. And with [imgsmall=items/infinity-edge.png] afterwards you do so much damage in teamfights with [imgsmall=skills/twitch/r.png].[/center] [center] [img=items/phantom-dancer.png][/center] [center]More attackspeed, crit and mobility. Good item for mid- and lategame.[/center] [center][img=items/last-whisper.png][/center] [center]Armorpenetration and damage. You´ll need this item cause most of the time 3/5 enemies(+) have more then 100 armor. Without this item you can´t do much damage on them.[/center] [center][img=items/guardian-angel.png][/center] [center]This is my favorite defensive item. Armor, magic resistance and a second life. With this build what i use you are very squishy but you do so much damage. Cause of that i prefer [imgsmall=items/guardian-angel.png]. A second life = more chance to win the game. [highlight]You can change it to [imgsmall=items/banshees-veil.png][/highlight][/center] [center]This is my build. I do tons of damage with it.[/center] [highlight][center]But you can change it to whatever you want.[/center][/highlight] [title][highlight][center]Situational items[/center][/highlight][/title] [center][img=items/tiamat.png][/center] [center] Let´s talk about [imgsmall=items/tiamat.png]. [imgsmall=items/tiamat.png] is a pretty good item for [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] because it works with [imgsmall=skills/twitch/r.png] together. If you know that the enemys often stand together in teamfights you should buy this item.[/center] [highlight][center][img=items/wits-end.png][/center][/highlight] [center]I see many [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] with this item because it´s great too. It gives you many attackspeed and magic resistance + extra magic resistance per hit for 5 seconds. You really should buy it when the enemy team has many magic damage.[/center] [highlight][center][img=items/frozen-mallet.png][img=items/warmogs-armor.png] + [img=items/atmas-impaler.png][/center][/highlight] [center]The [imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png] combination is pretty good for any time. It gives you many health + armor + damage + crit. I recommend the [imgsmall=items/frozen-mallet.png][imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png] because with [imgsmall=items/frozen-mallet.png] you have a big slow so no one can run away from you.[/center] [highlight][center][img=items/madreds-bloodrazor.png][/center][/highlight] [center][imgsmall=items/madreds-bloodrazor.png] is a cool item. If you know you can´t kill the enemys because they have to much life you should buy this item directly. At the beginning you can buy [imgsmall=items/madreds-bloodrazor.png] too instead of[imgsmall=items/wriggles-lantern.png] but only do this if you know the enemy team has champions who need much life.[/center]

[center][img=items/oracles-elixir.png][/center] [center]Every [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] should fear this item.[/center] [center]If someone bought an Oracel i was like[/center] [center][imgext=][/center] [center][title]What you shouldn´t do:[/title][/center] [center][highlight][.]Don´t stay in oracle range[/highlight][/center] [center][highlight][.]Don´t try to kill him solo(*)[/highlight][/center] [center][highlight][.]Don´t facecheck bushes[/highlight][/center] [center][title]What you should do:[/title][/center] [center][highlight][.]Tell your team to focus the oracle[/highlight][/center] [center][highlight][.]You should know where he is[/highlight][/center] [center][highlight][.](*)If you know you can solo him, kill him[/highlight][/center] [center]If you killed the Oracle you should feel like this[/center] [center][imgext=][/center]

I really hate it if somebody bought [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png]. Look at this map. Here I show you how to still gank even when the enemy has a [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png] in his lane. [imgext=] [highlight]There is another way to gank. Tell your teammates to attack the enemy. If they fight join the fight fast.[/highlight]

Try to gank as much as you can after you killed your blue-/redbuff. [highlight]Don´t gank if you failed a little bit at the blue-/redbuff and you lost many life.[/highlight] If you gank a lane with 200 hp the enemy can kill you easily and your teammates flame you. [imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png] should be no problem for you too. Only [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png] is a problem. But just look at [highlight]"Vision wards" (Chapter 10).[/highlight] You´ll lose many Minions cause you focus on ganks, but it´s okay. You should have many kills or assists. Try to counterjungle if you can´t gank. Look at [highlight]"Counter jungling" (Chapter 16)[/highlight] how to counter jungle. Never be greedy if you got some kills. If you are to greedy you can lose the match cause you died to much.

Some enemy towers should be destroyed now so it´s now harder for you to gank. Go and farm many minions if you cant gank. Or help other lanes to push. Try to kill with your teammates every dragon. At this time some enemys could have bought an [imgsmall=items/oracles-elixir.png] or [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png]. Follow the tips at [highlight]"Oracle" (Chapter 9)[/highlight] and [highlight]"Vision wards" (Chapter 10)[/highlight]. [highlight]If your Support don´t set the timer for the buffs, dragon and maybe baron you have to do it.[/highlight]

Keep an eye for baron, dragon, your buffs and enemy buffs. (Set the timer) Never split with your team. You need your team to tank cause you are to squishy. In teamfights wait a little bit before you attack. The enemies have to use their stuns on your teammates so they can´t stun you anymore. Stay in a good line to the enemies and shoot [imgsmall=skills/twitch/r.png] through the enemies. Try to use [imgsmall=skills/twitch/q.png] the whole time cause if someone camp in a bush he can´t see you (unless he has an [imgsmall=items/oracles-elixir.png]). And the longer you use [imgsmall=skills/twitch/q.png], the longer you can enjoy the attack speed buff. If you´re fed try to get some easy kills from greedy enemies. Play safe. If you don´t play safe you might get killed. If you get killed it can cost you the match.

In team fight´s try to position yourself good like this: [youtube][/youtube] You have to hit as many enemies as you can with your ultimate to do tons of damage to all.

I start with [highlight]bluebuff[/highlight], it´s the best for Twitch. Some people start with [highlight]redbuff[/highlight] but this is stupid. With red you can kill mid to 100% but you are oom (out of mana) after your first gank. After bluebuff [highlight]Wolves[/highlight] [highlight]Wraiths[/highlight] [highlight]Redbuff/Golems[/highlight] [highlight]Golems/Redbuff[/highlight] Try to gank very much with your bluebuff. My tactic in the earlygame is: bluebuff, gank mid, gank top, counterjungle or again a gank mid, redbuff, gank bot, gank mid and gank bot again if it´s possible. It should look like this after the bluebuff: [youtube][/youtube] In midgame I try to farm a little bit more. You lost many minions cause you roamed really hard. Here is a video of my jungleroute: [youtube][/youtube]

[title]How can i counter jungle?[/title] This is pretty easy. If you cant gank a lane and you´ve farmed all creeps in the jungle try to counter jungle. Run into the enemy jungle and do something like this: [highlight]Wraiths:[/highlight] Kill the blue wraith and 2 red wraiths [highlight]Wolves:[/highlight] Kill the red wolve and 1 blue wolve [highlight]Golems:[/highlight] Kill only the bigger golem [highlight]Bluebuff:[/highlight] If your enemy jungler started with blue it should respawn at 7:10~. Try to steal the buff very fast. [highlight]Redbuff:[/highlight] Here is it the same. If the enemy jungler started with red it should respawn at 7:10~. If he started blue and he didn´t gank a lane the red should respawn at 8:30-9:30. [title]How do I handle it being stolen?[/title] If your enemy is stupid he killed the complete creep camp so it should respawn fast. If he stole you a buff it´s okay. Stay cool and finish your jungle. With Twitch you don´t need the buffs to gank good.

Yes, [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] jungle is very good for SoloQ. He´s very good for lower elo cause many people think [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] isn´t strong so they don´t buy [imgsmall=items/oracles-elixir.png] and [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png]. This is very good for you. You can gank so easy in every lane. You know first they are like [imgext=] but after the match they are like [imgext=] cause you kicked them in the ass with [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] isn´t really good for higher elo cause the enemies buy many [imgsmall=items/oracles-elixir.png] and [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png]. Only good [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] can do something but you should learn enough in this guide about [imgsmall=items/oracles-elixir.png] [highlight](Chapter 9)[/highlight] and [imgsmall=items/vision-ward.png] [highlight](Chapter 10)[/highlight].

If your enemy is out of range use your ultimate to hit him a few times more. You have to stay in a straight line behind him [youtube][/youtube] You can port back when you are invisible [youtube][/youtube] You can teleport when you are invisible [youtube][/youtube] Note: The enemy can see the teleport but they cant see you. They could think you failed your teleport. [highlight]I try to add some more Tips and Tricks[/highlight]

This chapter is about the following [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] nerf´s and buff´s and about updates in this guide. 24.03.2012: I added 2 new chapter and some more details in early-, mid- and lategame. 28.03.2012: Edited runes and fixxed the skillorder.

I really hope you all enjoyed my first guide. I spent a lot of time in it to make it better. And now I really hope you kick some asses with your new offensive [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] knowledge cause [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] isn´t bad. He´s a very good champion. You just need to know how to play him well. I try to update this guide if [imgsmall=champ/twitch.png] get´s buffed or nerfed. Good bye and have fun Ps: If some sentences sound weird, I´m sorry. I´m german and my english is pretty bad. I´ll try to correct it all.

Comments coming soon!
