Cost Analysis

Statistical Value

Statistical Efficiency

  • Twin Shadows is 100.6% gold efficient without its active.

Strategy

  • The lowest base movement speed in the game is 325. At this speed, Twin Shadows grants 19.5 movement speed.
  • Because the ghosts target the closest enemy champions even when you don't have sight of them, this item is an excellent scouting tool.
  • Champions who are stealthed at the moment 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.
  • The ghosts appear to have around 450 movement speed and look somewhat similar to jungle wraiths.
    • This would make the maximum range of the ghosts 2700.
  • Its active can make it a useful item on mages that lack CC.
  • A well timed spellshield 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.
  • In the Crystal Scar, the ghosts will gain bonus movement speed while moving over the Speed Shrines.
  • Ghosts may not pass over any blocked terrain, such as Jarvan's cataclysm, you may use this to your advantage to prevent the vision or slow effects for a time.

Trivia

  • The item was originally called Wraith Collar.
  • The icon for this item looks blue while in-game. However, it looks red and purple in summoners' match history.
  • Can be found in the shop by searching for "Spooky Ghosts".
  • "Release The Hounds!" or "Ghostbusters!" are phrases commonly shouted when Twin Shadows is activated.
