Introduction

With this fiddlesticks build you will have people telling you that you are an OP character.
The trick to playing fiddlesticks is you must have the middle lane or a solo lane, you must level as fast as you can, when you hit level 5 or 6 go get the blue buff and go into a different lane and crowstorm.

It is best if you crowstorm in the grass and directly ontop of an enemy.
If you can't do that, crowstorm as close as you can and flash ontop of the enemy.
Be sure not to flash too early as it will cancel crowstorm.

As soon as you crowstorm ontop of an ememy you should fear them and use dark wind, then drain.

Skill Sequence

Drain is #1. Fiddlesticks should rarely ever have to recall with Clarity + Drain.

Crowstorm-->Drain-->Terrify-->Darkwind

At a high level fiddlesticks should easily be able to take on 2 enemy champions. Darkwind silences and does massive damage if there are only 2 enemies to take the bouncing hits.

You can Chain Drain enemies, and If you get max soulstealer stacks + blue buff, Drain will have a 3.6 second cooldown (and it lasts for 5 seconds!)


Guide Top

Runes

You want as much AP as you can.

Magic Pen for red runes is a must, and AP for blue runes is a must.
Some people choose to get other quints, such as movespeed. Those are up to you.

Remember, fiddlesticks AP ratios have been increased, and in order to take advantage of that our runes must mainly be AP.

Summoner Spells

Flash is a definite must for fiddle. It will enable you to land your crowstorms perfectly and also to get away.

If you are running from enemies and your flash is up, try and run towards a cliff or wall where you can flash to the other side.


Clarity Your second summoner spell is really up to you, whichever you prefer, but I suggest Clarity as you will be using a lot of mana.
If you find you aren't needing clarity very much, I suggest going with teleport/ghost or ignite/exhaust.

Items

You should always start with a Doran's Ring, as it gives AP, Regen, and Health. You may up selling this late in the game but it is worth the extra HP at low levels.

Fiddlesticks should always get Sorcercer's Shoes as soon as he can, and then build Soulstealer right away.

As long as you can keep soulstealer above 6 stacks it is worth it.

Abyssal Scepter is a must for any fiddlesticks, as it stacks with fiddles passive, and lowers enemy resistances by 30%.

*LEVIATHAN* - Leviathan for Fiddle -- WHAT??, With this fiddlesticks can get over 3000 HP at level 18. Try it out, if you aren't good at getting leviathan and soulstealer stacks, get soulstealer only and move on to Deathcap.

Deathcap will give you a massive AP boost,

Rylai's will give you massive AP and HP + the passive slow.

You can replace Rylai's with Hourglass if you prefer.

Masteries

Utility tree is definite must for Fiddlesticks. You will need the cooldown reduction and mana regeneration. As well as the magic penetration.

There are a couple points that can be placed differently, but fiddlesticks must always use the utility tree, otherwise you won't be able to continuously drain.

Pros / Cons

Cons - Very Squishy early game, but with massive AP you should still be able to out drain enemies.

Pros - With Soulstealer you should be able to get a massive amount of AP early on in the game.

-You will see Double, Triple, and even sometimes Quadra kills if you do your crowstorm rgiht.

-You will be able to solo Dragon at early levels,

-You will be able to solo baron at level 17 as long as you have a blue buff or elixir

Summary

Crowstorm + Fear + Drain is usually always a free kill.
Getting Soul Stealer is very useful for fiddle. Also try getting a leviathan, you will be amazed at how tanky fiddle will be.

Team Work

Crowstorm will always win team fights. You need to work with your team and tell them you are ready to crowstorm
