Cost Analysis

Gold Value

Gold Efficiency

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


Strategy

Twin Shadows ghost

A ghost summoned by Twin Shadows.

  • The lowest base movement speed in the game is 325. At this speed, Twin Shadows item.png 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.
  • If the champion using 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, and the cooldown would not be reduced.
  • If Twin Shadows' active is used when the enemy team is aced, nothing would happen and it would go on full cooldown.

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.

  • "Release The Hounds!", "Get Spooked!" or "Ghostbusters!" are phrases commonly shouted when Twin Shadows is activated.
