How it works

  1. You play as burst oriented Mage.
  2. You build AP items.
  3. You rush Stormsurge.

How to play

  1. Playing AP Twitch build, your default rush is Stormsurge.
  2. Adapt to an enemy team. Are they full of tanks, and they rush tons of Magic Resist? You rush Void Staff as #2 or #3 item to counter MR stacking. Their team has champs with lots of healing? Rush Oblivion Orb as #2 item (upgrade to Morellonomicon as 4th or 5th item).
  3. Somebody is going after you each fight? Always getting ulted by enemy assassins? Rush Zhonya's Hourglass.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can use Q right before taking the portal (frost-gate). This way you get stealth during it, and you are gonna be invisible after exiting it.
Riot
  1. 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.
  2. Contaminate has a large range; apply as many stacks of Deadly Venom as possible before using it.
  3. You can catch up to an enemy out of attack range with Venom Cask.
