Summoner Spells Back to Top

179.png

Flash + Heal

7.png4.png

Flash and Heal are the staples of ADCs as Flash is hands down the most versatile and flexible summoner in the game, allowing for offensive and defensive plays. Heal helps you and an ally live longer and as an ADC, the longer you live, the more dps you will be shelling out.

Barrier + Flash

Cleanse + Flash

21.png Or 1.png + 4.png

Barrier and Cleanse are solid alternatives to heal, ONLY if your support is taking Heal for you if they have 6363.png Windspeaker's Blessings (aka 40.png). The heal will be much stronger on them due to the healing bonuses from the items they build. To decide between barrier and cleanse, look at the enemy team to see how much crowd control they have.

Masteries


18/0/12


This mastery page is the standard page for ADCs bringing extra dps from 6162.png but also extra survivability in lane from the 12 points in resolve. 12 points in Cunning is no longer viable as it sets you very far behind against an ADC that is taking resolve.



6111.png - 5 points in Fury gives 4% attack speed, compared to the 2% increased ability damage of 6114.png. Twitch is more auto attack focused than ability, so take Fury.

6121.png - Fresh Blood gives your next auto attack 10+1 per level damage on a 6s cd, compared to 6122.png which gives 20 hp on a 30s cd. Doing the math, fresh blood if procd twice already is stronger than feast. Although feast is viable against hard lanes. 6123.png is mainly for support or low damage utility champions, both of which Twitch is not.

6131.png - Vampirism gives 2% life steal and spell vamp which is more consistent than the flat AD and AP 6134.png gives. Vampirism is more reliable as twitch does not benefit that much from the extra ap compared to other dual scaling champions.

6143.png - Battle Trance is the most safest and reliable mastery compared to 6141.png and 6142.png. Bounty hunter is a wildly ranging mastery where if you are ahead, you can deal out up to 5% increased damage for free which is great but if you are behind you receive nothing, and that is when you really need the increased damage. Double Edged Sword is not that good as it amplifies the damage you take in lane, where Twitch does not excel in.  Battle Trance is the safest and most reliable option giving you 3% increased damage without having to take extra damage.

6162.png- The two keystones that are viable for Twitch are 6161.png and 6162.png. Fervor scales with champions that can auto attack a lot and frequently early game which are champions that utilize 3153.png. Twitch can use fervor very well but sometimes it is not needed if the enemy team comp looks to dive and kill you right away, in this case warlords is stronger to give you a burst of lifesteal and movement speed to help survive against heavy dive.

6211.png - Recovery is like a mini doran's shield, giving you solid passive health regeneration. 6212.png is not viable as you won't be building enough armor and magic resist to make it worth it.

6223.png - Tough Skin gives you flat damage resistance against auto attacks which can save your life easily as in all ins it can save you approximately 20 hp. 6222.png is not very good as the resistances are very little and it will be very uncommon for it to proc. A Korean special is that they take6221.png on ADC's to have faster collapses and rotations to catch the enemy off guard, especially in skirmishes in the river.

6232.png - gives you 50 flat hp at level 1 which is HUGE. You start with around 500hp with out doran's blade and with Veteran's Scars you increase your hp by 10% already without buying any items. 6231.png is insignificant early game as your life steal is small but it scales up quite nicely, but the point of going 12 points in resolve is to boost your early game laning power so it's against the point if you take Runic Armor.

6243.png- Fearless is arguably the reason ADC's switched from 18/12/0 to 18/0/12. The 2 second increase of defenses on such a low cooldoown (9s) is extremely valuable. The summoner spell cd decrease from6241.png is not enough to justify it over Fearless as it doesn't help your laning. 6252.png is just awful.

Abilities


Passive - twitchpassive.png Deadly Venom

Twitch's auto attacks and apply a stack of poison dealing true damage over 6 seconds. The poison can be stacked 6 times to increase the true damage per second.

  • Pretty simple, your auto attacks leave a true damage DOT 

Q - twitchhideinshadows.png Ambush

Twitch becomes camouflaged after 1 second, gaining 10% movement speed while stealthed and also gaining bonus attack speed after he leaves stealth. Ambush's cooldown resets after an assist or kill. Auto attacking or using abilities will cancel ambush and reveal Twitch. 

  • Use this ability to flank and surprise enemies with the extra attack speed and stealth
  • Enemies can only see you if they are very close to you, use your stealth to your advantage
  • Ambush resets when you get a kill or assist so you can insta q to try to escape after getting a kill
  • Level this ability at level 4
  • Max this ability second


W - twitchvenomcask.png Venom Cask

Twitch throws a cask of poison at the enemy, creating a circle that slows enemies and creates twitchpassive.png Deadly Venom stacks over time. 

  • Use this ability to clear out minion waves and/or as self peel as the cask slows enemies
  • This ability can stack some free poison on the enemy to help boost your E damage
  • Level this ability at level 2
  • Max this ability last

E - twitchexpunge.png Contaminate

Twitch deals physical damage to nearby enemies that have twitchpassive.png Deadly Venom stacks. Contaminate does more damage for each additional stack of Deadly Venom.

  • Does massive damage early and mid game to champions with 6 stacks of deadly venom
  • Use contaminate after you get 6 stacks to boost the dps
  • Use your W before to get 6 stacks earlier
  • Your ult applies deadly venom to all enemies hit so you can possibly get a 5 man 6 stack E
  • Level this ability at level 1
  • Max this ability first


R - twitchfullautomatic.png Spray and Pray

Twitch increases his auto attack range and gains bonus attack damage, additionally Twitch's auto attacks pierce targets

  • A very strong steroid paired with your Q to give you range, attack speed and attack damage
  • You can use this ability effectively in 1v1s and 5v5s
  • You have an insane amount of range with your R so you may be able to hit carries from very far away
  • Level this ability at level 6 
  • Get points in this ability at levels 6, 11 and 16

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

179.png

Starter Items

1055.png2003.png

This is the standard start for Twitch and most ADCs. It gives you AD, HP and lifesteal; these are all very desirable stats for ADC's.
1054.png2003.png
Dshield is good against a ranged support and/or a lane dominant ADC such as 119.png. It grants you the same amount of HP as dblade but gives you alot more passive regeneration, making up for the lifesteal. So if you don't think you will be able to auto attack minions to lifesteal HP, dshield is your item.

First Back

Your prioritization of items is

3144.png - 1043.png3006.png - Can swap boots to 3111.png or 3047.png depending on enemy team comp

Situational Items

1083.png - 2031.png - 2055.png - If you have the left over gold to buy these items, buy them

Mid Game

By now you should have 3 completed items of 3153.png3006.png3085.png. From here your options start to branch out:


If enemy team tank(s) are ahead - build 3035.png

If enemy team has champs that heal - build 3123.png

If enemy team has heavy CC and/or pick potential - build 3140.png

If enemy team has strong AP kill potential - build 3155.png

If none of these apply - build 3031.png


If you have built one of these situational items, start building an 3031.png, if you already built one, look to build one of these situational items based on the enemy team comp or a 3026.png if the enemy tunnels very hard for you. 


Late Game


You are now only 1 item away from full build, your build could look something like this 3153.png3085.png3031.png3036.png3006.png. You have sufficient damage with this setup but you may need more survivability for your last item.


If the enemy team consistently dives on you and commits to you in team fights - build  3026.png

If there is vital CC that needs to be cleansed - build 3139.png

If 3026.png is down or if there is significant burst you need to survive - build 3812.png

If none of these apply or you believe you can outplay the enemy - build 3072.png

You can sell 3006.png in the late game for a zeal item like 3046.png to boost your dps



Your build should be different every game as it changes on enemy team comps. It will take some time to recognize these situations but good players will be able to adapt very quickly. Try not to run the same build each and every single game.

VS

Ashe

Easy

Ashe is a utility ADC that shines with coordination to use her ultenchantedcrystalarrow.png. With minimal coordination, building a 3140.png will make her near useless to you. You out damage her in 1v1s and teamfights, look to abuse this.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Against Caitlyn, 1054.png is a good starting item to counter her early poke. After her nerfs to her attack speed and whole kit, she has an awful mid to late game. Try to not die and stay even in lane and you will outscale her hard. Remember to dodge her caitlynyordletrap.png as they will do a lot if you don't

VS

Draven

Hard

Against Draven you MUST start 1054.png. You will lose a lot of trades and you can't fight him unless he drops all of his axes. You can look to assassinate him mid-late game if you are ahead though. If you don't die to him and let him snowball from his passive, you will outscale him.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Ezreal has a much worse laning phase than you due to his required purchase of 3070.png. He spends 750 gold on no combat stats but Ez does spike in the mid game. After his spike you will outscale but there should be no chance Ez gets ahead in the early against you.

VS

Jhin

Easy

Jhin is only strong if he and his support are on the same page and most of the time they are not. Play around how many bullets Jhin has left and you will win every trade abusing the fact that he has to reload. You also win 1v1s against him convincingly.

VS

Jinx

Easy

Jinx is looking to play safe in the laning phase and scale up like you but she has almost no tools to win trades early. Look to get 6 stacks of twitchpassive.png and chunk her out as all her damage is low dps. Look to ambush her in the sidewaves when she is in rocket form as she loses dps when clearing waves.

VS

Kalista

Medium

Depending on how good the Kalista is, she can make your laning phase a nightmare if played right. Look to play safe against her as she also has delayed damage but her kalistaexpungewrapper.png is stronger than your twitchexpunge.png if it reaches more than 6 autos. Kalista has low single target damage in the mid-late game so don't be afraid to 1v1.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

If Kog has a enchanter/peel support, he can be very oppresive to lane against. As you can't punish his immobility and weaker early game you CANNOT trade against him when he uses his kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png. You burst him harder in 1v1s but he shreds tanks in teamfights much better than you. Look to flank him and kill him early in teamfights or he will single handedly win them.

VS

Lucian

Easy

Lucian is a short range in your face lane bully. If you let Lucian get the jump on you he will win most of the trades, so you have to play aggressive to match him. Lucian does not scale as well as you so you have the fallback option to play for late game as well. 

VS

Sivir

Easy

Sivir's main laning power is actually in the form of her spell shield sivire.png. The only ability with significant cast time is your twitchvenomcask.png so it doesn't really affect your trades but make sure she does not predict your twitchexpunge.png as that can swing the trade around. She is very low range so look to abuse this as well.

VS

Tristana

Medium

Tristana is a late game hyper carry with a solid laning phase with mobility. This complete package makes her very strong and common pick. It will be very hard for you to kill her unless she outplays due to her safety. Look to kill and roam to other lanes against Trist.

VS

Varus

Easy

Varus also builds 3153.png like you do although he sacrifices damage for utility in the form of his ultimate varusr.png. He has the range advantage against you early in the game so  1054.png is a possible first buy. If you can make it to your first item without being significantly behind, you will automatically outscale Varus.

VS

Vayne

Medium

Vayne has similar 1v1 dueling power to you so only go for 1v1s if you are significantly ahead as she has more outplay potential. Vayne likes short tumble trades in the early game so try to be reactive with your twitchvenomcask.png and usually you can get solid damage off with your twitchexpunge.png.

VS

Xayah

Easy

Xayah is a low range ADC that scales well with crit, try to abuse this by letting your support landing cc and all ining her in the early levels. Be wary of her xayahr.png as it grants her intargetability and always play around where her feathers are or else her xayahe.png will chunk you.

Why Play Twitch? Back to Top

179.png


Why Play Twitch?


Twitch is one of the strongest solo queue picks right now due to his insane damage both in teamfights and 1v1s. He also has a Rengar ultimate in his twitchhideinshadows.png but on a much lower cooldown. He has a execute type of ability if his enemies survived his initial steroid boosted burst in his twitchexpunge.png. His ultimate makes him one of the longest ranged ADCs and lets him apply absurd amounts of AOE 

damage. All in all this makes Twitch a top tier pick to play against uncoordinated teams.
