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.
Hello and welcome to my AP Carry Fiddle guide. This is my first guide so please bear with me. This is currently a work in progress so I apologize for being incomplete and having spelling and grammatical mistakes. (not a very good writer if you cant tell haha)
The skill sequence I have made will usually work against every opponent. There are some champions/situations that I would recommend leveling your Terrify(Q) or your Dark Wind(E) first over your Drain(W).
Terrify: Level your Q first if your are being ganked repeatedly. Your level 5 Q will cause a 3 second fear which should give you enough time to make a quick escape. Level up your Drain(W) next.
Dark Wind: Level your E first if you are having trouble farming (If your zoned out). By leveling your E first you should be able to harass and get some farm from a distance. Level up your Drain(W) next.
You should not be building the item build that I have listed in every match. You should be building what you need to win.
Zhonya's Hourglass: This is Fiddle's bread and butter. This is one item that I would recommended you build every match. With this item you will survive long enough for you to finish your ult.
Rabadon's Deathcap: Good Item for almost every mage. It's good to get it ASAP but you should always prioritize surviving. If your being focused you should buy a item that gives you some survive ability (Zhonya's, Rylai's, Etc.)
Hextech Revolver: Good item to choose over the two Doran's Rings if your not really having mana issues.
Liandry's Torment: Great item with your Q. I will occasionally go this item first if am dominating. I Usually build it towards the end of my build.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter: Buy this item if your team needs CC, its better than nothing... I would recommend going for Zhonya's over this item if your team has sufficient CC.
Void Staff: Should always be somewhere in your build. I build it towards the end of my build unless the enemy team is stacking MR(Magic Resist). (I would build it as my second item if they were)
Abyssal Scepter: Very good item for fiddles considering that your going to be in the middle of the enemy team with your ult. It will make you hit harder and some defense against mages. Would build this item first if I cant out damage the enemy AP carry.
Athene's Unholy Grail: Build this if you need MR and you want to harass a lot (Would recommend leveling Dark Wind first and buying a Liandry's Torment ASAP)
Deathfire Grasp: Never have built this item on fiddle but I guess if was desperate enough to burst one target I might consider buying it.
Rod of Ages: Theres better things to build for fiddle.
Archangel's Staff: Theres better things to build for fiddle.
Lich Bane: No.
Hextech Gunblade: No. Buy a Will of the Ancients.
