- Twitch's Attack Speed is among the highest in the game; try purchasing items with on-hit effects such as Black Cleaver or Wit's End.
- Contaminate has a large range; apply as many stacks of Deadly Venom as possible before using it.
- You can catch up to an enemy out of attack range with Venom Cask.
- Twitch is fragile. Work with teammates to focus on him when you're able to catch him out of Camouflage.
- Spell Shields won't block the damage from Deadly Venom, but they will block the effects Twitch can trigger with it.
- If you suspect Twitch has left the lane, let your teammates know that Twitch is ''MIA.''
It's me! Hahahhah
Hello again everyone, what's up? It has been a while since I wrote on here for the last time, lots of stuff to do, but anyways, happily, we're back with one more guide!
So, Twitch has been one of the tricks I had up my sleeve on jungle for quite a while now. As the Season 7 is now over, though, I tried to gather up as much information as I could for you guys, so you'll be able to master the Twitch Jungle for the next season!
- Press the Attack
- Legend: Alacrity
- Coup de Grace
- Sudden Impact
- Relentless Hunter

The answer is simple, compared to another AD Carries and even Junglers, Twitch has an insane gank potential due to his 'Q' Ambush.
Further, you Twitch outscales countless other junglers in late game. It all comes down if you know what you're doing, you will utterly destroy the game and as we go through this guide, you will see how.

This is the build you should be going for on almost every game, the idea here is that you want to get a massive amount of attack speed on the early game, that is why you go for Bloodrazor[/quote] and Runnan's Hurricane.
is another 'must-go' item for Twitch, huge amount damage, basically doubles you crit, increases your Crit chance... So yeah, you certainly do not want to miss all these stats.
for Boots though, I like to go Berserker Boots for the lolz, but sometimes it is just not very effective. You can then choose either Ninja Tabi or Mercury Threads, so keep that in mind.
The rest of the build is entirely your choice, just try to understand what you need
However, I separated some items you can usually go for as Twitch
| - || - || - |
These are one of the items I'd go for depending on the current state of the game, so definitely try them out, here's a breakdown:
I'd go for Duskblade of Draktharr when there isn't too much tankies on the enemy team AND I am strong enough for that, otherwise, I'd choose something else.
Mortal Reminder is a trustworthy option if you're looking for penetration and, obviously, mitigating heal effects. I actually do like this item better than Lord Dominik's Regards.
Maw of Malmortimus on the other hand, is genuinely a good offensive-defensive item, not only it gives you more damage and cooldown reduction, but also gives you a whole lot of survivability!
Another offensive item for when you're winning, although I don't think it is really necessary for Twitch as you get so much attack speed from Legend: Alacrity
Obviously, the removal of Fervor was a huge deal for Twitch and Twtich players surely miss it, but Press The Attack's damage does not feel that bad in the early stages of the game. It does fall behind later, but in my opinion, still better than Lethal Tempo.
Subsequently, I'll quickly go over the other runes on the three. Not going to compare them, so this section won't be long
Triumph is a matter of fact one of the best runes and apparently it won't get nerfed anytime soon. Compared to the others on the same set, Triumph seems to be by far the best.
Alacrity is a must have, this it what makes your attack speed scales for an insane amount throughout the game.
Coup de Grace is what AD Carries use the most, plus the other ones are not very effective.
Sudden Impact will help you on early ganks as well as in late-game fights. Go for it!
Relentless Hunter helps you set up your ganks in mid-game as well as quickly go through the map in order to pick fights and do objectives along with your team.
6Standard Route and Tips
This is the route you should be doing every game:
Starting Red Buff allows you to kite the jungle monsters better and, therefore, do your clear faster, not to mention your gank potential.
On this pre-season though, you have to be really careful when playing Twtich Jungle as Riot, yet another time, changed the jungle experience, so make sure to ward your jungle and after the first gank, go back and try to clear as much jungle camps as you can.
Also, when you feel stronger than the other jungler, if your team has pressure around the map, do not hesitate to invade and put the enemy jungler behind
Ganking as Twitch
The most fun part and yet the most difficult. The level 2 Cheese mid or Level 3 Cheese top will almost always turn into a kill for your team, but the game isn't won by them, you gotta try to gank lanes with good a set up (a stun, slow or snare) and don't hesitate to sit in a lane for 30 seconds in order to put up a gank, most times you will have to use Ambush multiple times in a gank, so don't panic if the first time doesn't go through!
Moreover, at least in the early stages of the game, you should NOT try to gank strong assassins like
Zed, unless you know you will burst them before them burst you.
Notice that you never want to fall behind as Twitch Jungle, for the simple reason that if you fall behind most champions will abuse your weaknesses.
Pro-tip: Try to use your W toward the direction that you think the enemy will try to run to, so that you have guaranteed slow and stacks for your E
Mid and late game as Twitch
Usually if you're strong you want to pick fights right? Right! It is no different as Twitch, but you have the advantage of your Ambush to quickly sneak peak into your enemies and assassinate them.
Just try to intelligently play a bit more risky
Further, I want to give some special tanks to RAT IRL, the guy who I learned Twitch jungle from, he's a challenger Twitch jungle main, if you really want to learn/main Twitch make sure to check out his Twitch/Youtube
