An Introduction

About Fiddlesticks



Fiddlesticks has 3 main roles in a team; Mid Ap Carry, Support and Jungler. This build focuses on playing as an Mid AP Carry.

Fiddlesticks is a strong choice for mid, being able to scale very fast. His full damage output requires his Terrify and Drain to be quite high level, but he can easily punish wanderers. His Drain scales ridiculously with AP, since it is in effect multiplying your base AP by 225%, since it lasts for five seconds. His early game sustainability will counter pokers like Fizz, and Teleport will ensure that he is not gone for long. He even has incredible solo drake (and sometimes baron) potential.

Unfortunately he is hard countered by CC. Both his damage output abilities require a constant channel, resulting in embarrassing silenced Ulti's, as well as awkward stunned Ulti's, resulting in you standing in the middle of nowhere looking like a knob. In those situations where you see a Kassadin in the enemy team, feel free to turn to another guide. Down votes from lost games are not nice.

Pros and Cons

Pros

+ Great sustainability.
+ Huge late game scaling.
+ Great team fighting.
+ Powerful brush gank.
The short range teleport and invisible casting when in brush of Crowstorm make incredible ganks, whilst using Drain allows you to soak most of the aoe damage. Your Terrify allows for good setup, as well as an escape route combined with Flash. Make sure you communicate to your team that you have to be able to life steal from the big minions.
Cons

- Very squishy.
- Hard countered by CC.
- Ultimate has channel.
- Short range for main damage.
Fiddlesticks' Crowstorm, although the channel is 1.5 secs, it feels much longer, and leaves you vulnerable during cast. Anyone with some form of CC can turret dive you, and you will be helpless. Your main damaging abilities ( Drain and Crowstorm) as well as Terrify have tiny range, meaning that a missed Terrify will result in your matchup waltzing their way from the battle, taking minimal damage.
