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.
Well then... (Intro)
Listen, before anyone gives me grief about not putting that final point in Utility, look at what I put it into. What would be more important to Fiddlesticks? Flashing 15% more often, or an extra 10AP or 15% Magic Pen? Seeing as how you flash with your ult, or ignite at the very end, to ensure the kill, why not take that extra 10 AP and put it in your pocket? And 15% Magic Pen is just deadly! Too deadly to pass up. Let's move on.
What do I do to win? Well, allow me.
The Crowd Control that everyone has cried "OP!" over for centuries. People will buy Eleisa's Miracle over this, and most don't even know what that is! People turn Boots of Swiftness into Merc's Treads, just for the Tenacity to avoid this spell. At level 5, this gives you 3 glorious seconds of draining the enemy down into a puddle of nothing. Which leads me on.
This is what makes Fiddlesticks truly unique from other champions. He has a leash-cast spell that takes away the opponent's health, and gives it to you, like an upload link, and it is a direct transition! The cast, I believe, is 450, and the leash is 650. Lots of fun, easy to use.
DARK WIND (Caw?)
Most people laugh at how useless this baby is. I do not. I give it the utmost respect. I bow in love and honor to it. I hug my crow when I go home at night! This is your harassment. You throw this on a melee minion, and this crow will search day and night and sometimes, pop off on a champion once or twice. It helps Fiddlesticks creep farm, it helps Fiddlesticks harass. If you want to see how hilariously unfair a crow is, go side-lane and, before minions spawn, throw it between two enemy champions and watch the health plummet. Most people say, "Bu-But Glitchead, why did you only put one point into it until level 18 if it's so good?" Well, because, you're going mid. You need good 1v1 capabilities, which includes harassment, but revolves around crowd control, nuking, and lifesteal sustainability. I still love my crows.
CROWSTORM (Lulululululu- Cawcawcawcawcaw!)
This is some bull. This is ragequit. This is Troll. This is SPARTA!!! This is everything overused and unfair. This is the DMV. This lets you pop into a lane like a flash and have hell circling about you and destroying everything that ever existed and will exist. Combined with flash, you can catch anyone. Combined with Terrify-Drain combo, you can kill anything. And let's not count out ignite. You don't want to use it on Mid Lane, unless you can bet on your partner's idiocy. Run out and gank side lanes, but don't run through mid bush unless pushing. Pop in with ult, fear drain. If you miss ult, flash it up and still kill them. You'll make sure everyone loves you.
Don't Laugh!! (Items)
Standard Doran's Ring is Standard!
Rod of Ages?! but I wanted to rush- STOP! Rod of Ages is necessary for any AP carry! Increasing AP by the minute? And HEALTH by the minute!? Survivability coming with extra damage! Wow, thanks RoA! But what if I die and have to start over- WAIT, THE TIMER DOESN'T START OVER WHEN I DIE? WOOOOW!!!
Zhonya's? Oh, just use that to pop your ult into the whole enemy team and go invulnerable! Don't worry, hell is still circling you, unfairly. Hmm..
WHAAAAAT?! SPIRIT VISAGE?! Oh, well, you see- NO MUST RUSH RABADON'S! NO MORE WAITING! MUST GET NOW! No no, you don't underst- MUST RUSH RAB'S AND WIN! OR BUY MEJAI'S! MUST DO NOW!!!!!!!!!! *slaps him down and knocks him out* LISTEN! Don't rush anything. It ends badly. I meant by buying Spirit Visage, it gives you Magic Resistance, Health, and Cooldown, with a nifty increased healing rate on your drain!!! I mean wow! If they don't have a magic damage team, buy some Armor. Don't rush Rabadon's, lest you be too squishy. After this one item of resistances, it is time.
RABADOOOONN'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We all know what it does. SuperAPness.
At this point, just sell your Doran's Ring. Right now. Don't care. Sell it. buy some resistance that builds into high resistances, like Banshee's Veil or Frozen Heart.
