Notes

Twin Shadows screenshot

A ghost summoned by Twin Shadows.

  • The ghosts have a movement speed of 667, and can go up to 4000 units away.
  • If no enemy champion is alive when the item is activated, the ghost will look around for 3 seconds and then despawn.
  • Champions who are stealthed at the moment Twin Shadows item Twin Shadows is activated will not be targeted or chased by the ghosts.
    • However, if a ghost has locked onto a champion that then proceeds to enter stealth before the ghost makes contact, the ghost will continue to chase until its duration ends or the champion leaves stealth.
  • If the champion using Twin Shadows item Twin Shadows dies when ghosts are active and they fail to reach an enemy champion, they would return to where the owner died and remain idle until they expire.
  • On Twisted Treeline, Twin Shadows item Twin Shadows and Frost Queen's Claim item Timeworn Frost Queen's Claim share the same active and cooldown, even though the Frost Queen's Claim item Frost Queen's Claim's active isn't named Spectral Pursuit.

Strategy

  • Because the ghosts target the closest enemy champions even when you don't have sight of them, this item is an excellent scouting tool.
  • Its active can make it a useful item on mages that lack crowd control.
  • A well timed Spell Shield spell shield can negate the effect of a ghost coming into contact with a champion.
  • It is possible for both ghosts to hit the same champion, but the effect and duration is only refreshed.
    • With this is mind, when chasing or being chased, you can try to soak up both ghosts to eliminate them as a threat.
  • Ghosts may not pass over any blocked terrain, such as Jarvan IVSquare Jarvan IV's Cataclysm Cataclysm, you may use this to your advantage to prevent the vision or slow effects for a time.

Trivia

  • The summoned ghosts look somewhat similar to the jungle wraiths.
  • The item was originally called Wraith Collar.
  • Can be found in the shop by searching for "Spooky Ghosts".
  • "Release The Hounds!", "Get Spooked!" or "Ghostbusters!" are phrases commonly shouted when Twin Shadows is activated.
  • In the Crystal Scar, the ghosts gained bonus movement speed while moving over the Speed Shrines.
