Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
First of all i want to start mentioning that this is my first self made build after always using builds from MOBA. Feel free to comment.
Since the revamp on fiddlesticks it is pretty much not possible anymore to solo blue without help / smite and in my opinion having smite on fiddlesticks is wack, you need to mobility.
So i started wondering, Fiddlesticks, what is his call?
He can't nuke without his ultimate so he definitly ain't a nuker, he can't heal or buff friendly champions. But he is hellish good in controlling and silencing.
In my opinion Fiddlesticks is a 'Disabler', with this in mind i tried building him diffrent from all other build which mostly fail nowadays.
I use Teleport because you want to be mobily. Especially when you turn 6 and want to surprise your enemy with your Dark present of endless crows.
Flash finishes the job if you crowstorm-blink doesn't reach the enemy.
Other viable options are Ignite or Sprint.
To get to the point;
I use Fiddle with alot of defensive runes and masteries, why?
Ever seen a 400 hp fiddle walking into the bushes and NOT becoming the first blood?
Exactly, so with the HP runes and Def masteries you will be able to stay in lane very long.
Why don't you get mana regen runes in yellow?
This would be awesome, but you will get damaged way more and you'll have to go back faster, that something I want to prevent. Your mana regen problems will end after the first return.
Due to the massive HP and HP leech from Drain you will be able to stay in lane for a very long period. The only problem will be mana, so therefore Utility comes in.
Why won't I take Offensive for at least the 15% spell penetration?
Like mentioned before, your a disabler, your job is to annoy and assist for killing.
If you prefer 15% spell penetration so much, please use another guide.
Items 'N' Skill sequence
Always start with buying Dorans ring for the fill up in the mana regen.
Your HP will be around 700. Taking Dark wind will have lost of fun when 2 enemy champions stack in bushes and stick when running away from just your dark wind and your lanepartners attacks.
At level 3 you want all 3 abilities useable, pick fear/drain on situtation.
Is the enemy pushing u big time? take drain, are you dominating? Pick fear and try to best them.
When a kill has been made or when you have been in lane for enough time to have around 825gold.
Recall and buy another dorans ring with boots.
Why always get 2 dorans rings?
Normally you will take a second dorans items when you aren't doing so well.
Fiddlesticks never does well solo. Unless your enemy suffers from severe brain damage.
At this point you will be able to cast whenever you like, your mana will regen properly and not to forget, you won't miss your mana regen runes in yellow.
After these items, you want your cooldown lowered more so you can easilty keep spamming spells. Your next recall will be just when u have no other option. (if your low you can always drain jungle). Rod of ages will and ionian boots be of main interest.
After this you will just build counterwise on enemy team Hourglass mostly does the job.
For more Help in damage get Deathfire Grasp.
