Fiddle is truly a game changer if used correctly. Your ultimate is one of the best AOE's in the game and when used correctly it can score a lot of kills and assists.
Fiddle really shines when he gets his ultimate and when all the team fights begin.
When playing fiddle I highly suggest you take a side lane with someone who can push the lane up and deal heavy damage early game. When playing fiddle make sure to harass with dark wind and last hit minions, heal with drain when needed.
The important part of the laning phase is to make sure you dominate the brush as fiddle, in doing so you could really predict the outcome of the game. If you dominate the brush till level 6 you could easily get a kill, you could gank mid, top or just kill the enemies in your lane. When dominating the brush most people will think your still down in the lane , which you may but you really could be in another lane ganking.
I highly suggest you let strong mid carries like Ezreal,Annie, tristana etc take mid solo it will really benefit your team a lot more.
Try to last hit as much as you can even though you are going to have to auto attack them. Everytime they get in range of you drain then fear, draw them out of xp lane so you get the upperhand in leveling and farming.
Once you hit level 6 you need to gank the side lane that needs the most help. Run to any side lane or ask your team to put down a ward in the brush then teleport to it (this is only if you take teleport as your summoner spell obviously). Crowstorm>Fear>Dark wind>Drain (flash to your enemies if your not in range)
Continue to gank if people aren't staying with their team, as fiddle you need to buy wards and put them down in brushes where you are going to hide otherwise you may get ganked when trying to position yourself to land your ultimate. If they dominate the brush in team fights stay at the back of your team and when your tank initiates crowstorm in and target the carry don't target the ******* tank or this will cost you the team fight. DO NOT EVER CROWSTORM THE OTHER TEAM IF YOUR IN FRONT OF YOUR TEAM OR EVEN IN THE MIDDLE YOUR ULTIMATE CAN BE INTERRUPTED BY A STUN WHEN CHANNELING.
If you have been doing your job, the game should easily becoming to an end, one thing that you have to do is make sure you start to build magic resist/armor, a lot of fiddles or even anyone else keep stacking more damage instead of getting items that help you reduce their damage input which will cost you the game, even if it seems that your team is dominating. Make sure to buy a bunch of elixir of brilliance's and fortitude if you have all that extra cash.
-Will make you more tankier, bigger mana pool and a bit of AP.
-( If they are heavy in CC TAKE MERC TREADS!! )
-(MUST HAVE , CROWSTORM + zhonya passive = OP)
Optional- This isn't in the core build because its not a reliable item fiddle is someone who runs into their team putting him in danger, sure you'll have a few stacks but the other team will learn to target you first rendering you useless. Also fiddle's ap ration sucks anyways.
Items to take note of:
-Good item early game. Gives a bit of hp,ap but the MP is what is best about this item.
-- This is a must have for fiddle after you have your core items, magic resist + the passive, great item.
-- Gives you AP , MR, Build this if they have multiple champions that are building MR
-- Makes you tankier + slows with your spells, Build if you seem to be getting focused a bit but don't build it before your zhonya's
-- If your dying too much build one
-- This is a must if they stack MR.
-- DO NOT buy this item, ask your team to build it if he can, the spell vamp will help your drain rape even more.
Laning with a partner
Follow the skilling order that is shown and DOMINATE THE BRUSH, if you dominate the brush they won't be able to tell if your mia or if your hiding in the brush.
Do everything else exactly the same way as if you were mid solo gank the lanes that need the most help,last hit,etc.
Fiddle is a great is a great jungle character. Controlling the jungle will benefit you and your team a lot.- Make sure to always take it when it is up, mana regen + cooldowns = spam skills. Beg your team not to take it unless there is someone else that is fed and is doing well.
- When your team can't get it make sure you can, fiddle can easily solo dragon with drain + fear. 125 gold for you & 100 for your teammates.
Control the rest of the neutral creeps too, but make sure not to take it if there is someone on your team that isn't doing well and can use the extra gold. Just make sure the enemies aren't controlling your side of the jungle and make sure you don't take the lizard.
HP Quints can be replaced with movement quints
Dodge Seals can be replaced with health p/level
Great for fiddle , good for crowstorm then flashing into range, flashing through walls or flashing to get closer for a fear drain.
Great for chasing getting in range of those who run away from your ult or for those guys that blink our really lit.
Taking a tele means easy ganking , ask your team to put a ward in the brush, tele to it crowstorm GG.
Bad ChoicesDon't even get me started..
Your drain is enough
Bad choice for almost every champ except karth (Nuke with Q) Revive ult GG.
