Twitch – The Rat Who Fell From Grace
Part 2 of the guide: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...d.php?t=200833
So ****, well I got bored and since the forums are really lacking guides on Twitch, with the only real more or less, yeah less up to date ones, is only that nerds - Rydog’s one.
Its a wall of Text, but hell , if you enjoy reading and your playing a Twitch, either you be a newbie Twitch or veteran Twitch, i'm sure you'll find some filling information in here regardless of who you are.
Lately I’ve seen a lot of newbies pilling up and creating ******ed threads with names like Twitch items please, runes, builds , ect. Not to mention that some lowlifes still read the old guides and blindly claim Malady to be the core item for a Twitch, yes yes you losers, I’m talking to you, the ones that go 1/10/3 and blame everyone around.
So well homies, your in luck – that ladie distress ends here and now and I’ll bump you up and let you know how real Twitches pimp their rides and drive trough the sidewalks while getting massive killsprees.
Introduction I guess:
Alright now, first off get that finger out of your nose, you might cause some brain damage and you still need that so listen up, I’m only going to repeat this ONCE:
Twitch IS NOT GODLY OR OP ANYMORE. Thus why the thread name, with the new champions like Xin and **** and others getting buffed constantly and reworked, Twitch is still the same old nerfed Twitch that got hit heavily back then more than half a year ago which removed his GOD status, but lets be honest – half a year ago there weren’t all that many decent players around, so Twitch dominated noobies a lot mainly.
But still, like I said, after that nerf, Twitch is still stagnant where he is while others get reworked and polished while Twitch is always pretty much overlooked and more than that, while still, he gets hit passively by nerfs nobody realises like - the Last Whisper nerf , the Penetration nerf, the critical rate removal ,ect, no love fo the smelly rat , huh, well hey I bet he doesn’t smell any worse than your grandma there riot!
If actually compared to any other champion, hes actually pretty UP nowadays and can’t 1v1 most targets mid game unless decently fed and equiped. Also with new champions coming out like Xin, Olaf, Udyr , Pantheon (in less regards now), Garen (Tank garen, good luck with that) and whatnot, he seems rather incompetent in general and is dealt easily with by the champions listed by the least of the list.
And nowadays UNLIKE the previous days where only skanky champions like Sivir, Ash and Mundo were running all over the place, nowadays chunky ****s like olaf , garen and pantheon took their places, which jokes are bad with.
You aren’t able to pop out behind people nowadays and land a double kill while their at full health, you aren’t able to pop out behind the enemy team and make a quadra/penta kill cause their all squishy and ret@rded anymore.
And you obviously will get your balls handed back over to you if your too cocky and charge in first, or if theres a Xin in there, if you charge in second also.
Okay, now that we’ve gone trough the part that explains why you don’t wanna play Twitch, lets head over to the part where I’ll tell you about WHY you would want to play Twitch.
The Twitch unlike his bold sisterhood Evelyne, is a stealth character that has range! So generally oracles are more or less irrelevant to you since you can keep your range and spray and pray out of trouble, altho wards always posses a problem. A Twitch is also a great mid lane champion and let alone that, he is quite strong against most Mids that go against you, with exceptions like experienced Katarinas, Kennens and Ezraels, rest should be a breeze if you know what your doing, so scoring a first blood is not a phantasy.
Also to boot, Twitch is one of THE BEST gankers in the game, with a massive slow, fast attack speed and a poison bomb that deals heavy early game damage for easy kills.
Thus being able to let him feed himself and dominate mid-late game to the enemies expensses. If you’ve had a great start game, you can pretty much call it a done game. (Ofcourse if your team isn’t feeding excessively or being idiots in team fights).
Passive: Twitch's attacks infect the target with Deadly Venom, which deals 2/4/6/8 damage each second, stacks up to 6 times, and lasts up to 8 seconds.
I have to say you completely underestimate Expunge during the early/mid game. An expunge can be worth anywhere from 2-7 auto attacks worth of damage during this time. Consider also that the expunge range is noticeably larger than your auto attack's and can't be flashed out of. Not only that, but it gives you twice as much AoE damaging power after you finish your Spray and Pray.
You should consider a more traditional build like:
