Introduction

Haya there Typhoon here!:)
I will choise my own build runes and masteries and personal things that I run on fiddlesticks/Junglesticks/Middlesticks/Supportsticks. I will show you many options but not bad options and will write for every build.I will explain what is good and bad and why i take that over that and will give good information and if you disagree I add that to and explain. I will add pictures to make it easier and videos for better understanding. Remember If you wan't know all things read the guide so you understand item build masteries runes and options. I will work best on jungle and middlelane because most people play jungle and less people play support.

This is so usefull video remember this is a outdated so not worth to follow this guide from the video but still watchable though.

Jungle #1 THE CLASSIC TREE!
These are pretty standard masteries for a AP like junglesticks This is the only choice to go as Offense tree you cannot take summoners insight with butcher either destruction because they won't help you and that's why got Havoc 3/3 for AP jungler. This gives you extremely high damage at late game and fiddlesticks is OP carrier as late game this allows him longer buff and lower cooldown by items like zhonya's hourglass. And the important is flash cooldown reduction and 10% Spells cooldown reduction which is pretty important.

Jungle #2 WHAT I USE 9/0/21!
Utility is a half jungling and supportish tree for Junglesticks.
You grants a extra ward by Explorer and a Biscuiteer with cooldown reduction for spells and flash by Summoner's Insight And you get 2 gold every 10 sec and of course 50 starting gold which allows you buy a Sight Ward instead Mana Potion. and longer buff time and 10% cooldown reduction and 3% movement speed.This my 9/0/21 build. I run this, This allows you best start and alot ganking.


Guide Top

Runes Junglesticks

JUNGLESTICKS RUNES Greater Mark of Magic Penetration Standard for any APC you can't say no to this runes

Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration I prefer these as this helps you when you not have blue buff and mana regeneration is pretty good for junglesticks/middlesticks this is if you run classicsticks and you can take to armor seal.

If running my build go Greater Seal of Ability Power without doubt this allows you cap your ability power that you lost from the offense tree.

Greater Glyph of Ability Power This is what I go, flat is what I prefer I used to have scaling AP before but I like the early damage and this make you faster clearing.

Other you could go is Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction this is good as hes ultimate is on high cooldown and this helps hes abilities a bit more. However I dont like these fiddle dont need 30-40% CD, CD is good for him but your choice and another fear is great for a kill asap.


Greater Quintessence of Ability Power There is no better than this, This is a must to any APC I mean 15 ability power you can't miss this.

Summoner Spells junglesticks

Must Have Junglesticks


Flash this is a must spell. This can help you gank in big fight or escape or change the game to your favor.
Smite You can jungle but the reason why we take it for secure buffs, steal , ensure dragon/baron and alot more.


Guide Top

Items junglesticks

STANDARD START [CLASSIC BUILD]
Sight ward sight ward
Classic start. Remember to use ward offensive and defensive(Offense then put on enemy red buff and get smiteleash blue buff and go counter jungle enemy if not then put ward on your red if defensive) and the 2nd ward is for ward top or wherever you think it's worth to put.

STANDARD NOOB START[CLASSIC BUILD]
sight ward
This if you can't solo blue,wolves and are new to fiddlesticks not high level or noob at game or don't have runes. Remember to use ward offensive or defensive(Offense then put on enemy red buff and get smiteleash blue buff and go counter jungle enemy if not then put ward on your red if defensive)

CORE ITEMS
Exellent item for jungle clearing and ganks.
120 AP , and best active for fiddlesticks usefull if you go in teamfights or ult in and enemys stay in your big crows and wait for gold staty done.

AFTER CORE
The burn is helpfull and magic penetration and this gives you everything like ap HP you need for fiddlesticks minus cooldown reduction.
Great item with mana ap health.

FINISH
Cheap great stat and cool aura.
150 AP a great item that increase your damage ALOT
I feeling you don't need that fast boots anymore because late game is exellent for fiddlesticks and you get MP.
You can enchant this on your new boots as this helps your flash.

I DEFINITELY DONT LIKE THIS ITEM...
Even if you got 100% Spell vamp that doesn't help you. 50 AP is not worth and passive for smite is useless for battle and jungle, this is just a waste of 2k money and a slot for Rabadon's Deathcap


STARTING ITEM 21/0/9 [IF RUNNING MY BUILD]

Hunters Machete is not worth it dosen't do damage to enemies when ganking and got no good upgrade Im not fan either of the upgrade.
STARTING ITEM 9/0/21 BEST START
this gives you mana regeneration and health.
put it whenever you wan't and whatever.
20 AP clearing jungle faster, Faster Ganking easier kills.
Sight Ward You can use the ward either defensively (ward your red), or offensively (ward enemy red). This will depend on the enemy jungler and how comfortable you are.
IF GOING SLOW
Kage's Lucky Pick
This is so rarely item to get on fiddlesticks after armguard came out people always got money for that but if you did not gank or succesfull get a kill you still can get this.
IF GOING WELL

This is what people always can get almost 100% if you can buy seeker's Armguard with boots of speed get it as this gives more AP and will build into zhonya's which is first core.
IF GANKING ALOT

Impossible to get this after recalled but this still a option if you can buy.This is almost if you got around 4-5 kills and lucky.
EARLY GAME PROBLEMS

Is your blue buff getting taked at level 1-7 alot or got mana problem a bit then you need only 1 Doran's Ring remember dont buy this as starting item only for early game problem. Not often I get this only if i got really mana problems but however this could be a waste too of money. but its really cheap:)
Core Items

Zhonya's Hourglass for AP and ACTIVE
Sorcerer's for MP and movement speed allows you gank better.
DISTORTION for more ganks with ultimate by flash
EXAMPLE TOWERDRIVE WITH ZHONYA's HOURGLASS
AFTER CORE ITEMS
150 AP works exellent with ult.
Take this if enemy team stack MR items.
Take this if they not stack MR items.
5th SITUATIONAL ITEM
Morell if your AP middle lane need the blue buff this allows you 20 Cooldown Reduction and mana regeneration and solves fiddlesticks problem.
Deathfire if they got a hard tank like olaf malphite etc.
if you got no problem pick up this item then.
6TH SITUATIONAL DEFENSE
got nice health and slow and AP.
Banshee is for HP MANA MR and block a ability
Quick for the lovely active and MR op vs team with APC or CC and debuffs

Abilities Junglesticks

There is one common route to fiddlesticks

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
1.Drain for best damage and clear faster. 2. Fear for shut down a enemy quick. 3. silence for damage.
COMMON ROTATION
> >>
this gives you you best damage and you should shut down enemy easy (Use flash only if needed).
LEVEL 2 GANK ROTATION
be sure that your bottom lane is ready for the gank
you shouldn't need Flash because your bottom team kill them quickly with you.
SURPRISE DAMAGE ROTATION

This time you start with fear you only use silence last so enemies can die thanks to bounce.
Crowstorm in big team fights zhonya's only if needed.


Guide Top

Junglesticks


THIS IS GANKING ROUTE!
Read the picture and look at it and read the introduction.
INTRODUCTION
there is a bug I did on purple side it says ''1'' Blue I mean Wolves.
1.You start with the wolves Drain the big one and auto attack the small ones after the big dead.
2.you head north to BLUE BUFF and use SMITE on it then it is 490 or under health. soon you level 2 put on point in Dark Wind.
3. soon head down to Wraiths and kill them.
4.You go to red buff you can use smite or no smite as you see in the picture.As you see i writed ''4&5 USE SMITE ON RED OR GOLEMS YOUR CHOISE'' That means if you wan't smite on red or golems.
5.Go to big golems and smite or no smite the small one.
6.Soon go to wraiths again to be level 4
7.You go top lane and gank as you got your fear look so the allies is ready for the kill and gank.
8.Recall and buy stuffs.
9.continue jungle
10.After level 6 go gank mid or bot with ultimate. if you are a lucky guy this make you penta.EXTRA VIDEO HOW TO JUNGLE :
SEASON 3

BY A AWESOME GUY CALLED ''STONEWALL008'' got alot jungling videos.




THIS IS COUNTERJUNGLE ROUTE
1. Ward enemy red
2. smiteless blue
3. wait until enemy started they red
4. go in and take kill + smite red
5. recall or do whatever you wan't
You can solo dragon really early around level 7-9 or after core buy wards and put them like these.And middle lane will put left and right side. and the bot will put ward near left side I guess and help.

How to not destroy your Surprise. If you want feel safe buy Sight ward and Oracle's Elixir.

SUPRISE WARD PLACE :


Guide Top

Early game Junglesticks

1.junglesticks is pretty weak make sure you get your blue buff safe and use smite on it you don't need a smiteless leash only if you invade enemy red which I often do with the ward.
2. Gank only at level 4 so after level 4 you go top and gank with Terrify Dark Wind Drain you should succesfull get a kill it's important for junglesticks.
3.Keep jungle keep take the buff after level 6 you can go gank middle it's the easiest or the top until middle game.

Early game is from level 1 to like level 5-7 around 9.


Guide Top

Middle game Junglesticks

Middle game is making Juglesticks stronger There is many way to junglesticks now it's important to have buffs, kill dragon help team really much and do gank asap to make your team happy and defend the place. you should get your zhonya's around this time so you can go in teamfights or push a lane.
3 OPTIONS YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE LATE GAME
1.You can either solo dragon or call your team because dragon is important remember the wards.
2.You can go gank and keep jungle.
3.You can help team to victory or destroy turret and help them and get kills.


Guide Top

Late game Junglesticks

here you extremely strong for your team and you be pain for enemy. you should not jungle much but try win much go in big fights do baron and much more. because you make big plays here.


Guide Top

Middlesticks


1.It's simple go to shop and buy Doran's Ring soon go middle lane and harras with E you don't want to get killed at early game so be carefull and use Dark Wind.
2. You level 2 you got Terrify pretty cool thing if you enemy trying to attack you much just Terrify -> Dark Wind and you did damage safely.
3.Level 3+ now you try max Drain now you can like do some damage but remember if enemy harras and run dont use Drain too much.
4.After recall you could buy Sorcerer's Shoes if you got any kill and may be level 6.
5. You are level 6 now you got your ultimate use it sure and dont waste it because if enemy run away or stun and slow or any CC your surprise will get destroyed. If enemy is near your turret you can succesfull take a kill with ult. You not got much AP yet but if enemy don't have boots then use it and get the kill.


yea that's the start so now you can continue alone.

Midsticks 21/0/9 FIDDLESTICKS IN MIDDLELANE.
This is normal Middle lane Masteries for fiddlesticks take this if you not the jungler or when playing middle lane.
There is no other optional you cannot go 21/9/0 it's impossible and really bad because you lose the good from utility as middle lane. you cannot take Havoc because you alredy got 2 in Butcher and 1 Summoner's Wrath so we just enjoy this mastery page and follow it.

Runes Middlesticks


Middle Lane RUNES Greater Mark of Magic Penetration Standard for any APC you can't say no to this runes

Greater Seal of Scaling Mana I prefer these as this helps you when you not have blue buff and mana regeneration is pretty good for junglesticks/middlesticks.

Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power I take these increase your damage = stays longer in lane.

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist is good you can take these if you wan't be more safe or can't dodge /stay alive.

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power There is no better than this, This is a must to any APC I mean 15 ability power you can't miss this.

Summoner Spells Middlesticks

This is what I go if play middelane.

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
The wrong with some people they take Drain at level 1 before you start use it they run away from drain and thats why we take Dark Wind level 1 for the harras and level 2 Terrify now perfect two CC and Drain level 3 and we can start make damage on enemy run back and harras him easly. the build is a bit mess but works for me.

Yeah alright I never play support but tried it not that really fun but if you love him then do it!

Runes Supportsticks

SUPPORT RUNES
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration This is a good but risky rune to take but I run this as I cant find a better only Greater Mark of Armor This is extremely good but I want too get some MP on fiddlesticks because he use abilites of course, Armor works pretty good as supportsticks got low Armor and this allows him stay longer in a lane.
Greater Seal of Armor I really like these this helps hes armor as supportsticks hes armor is low and these runes will help him get stronger if you did go Greater Mark of Armor Then I recommened you go Greater Seal of Gold.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist I can't find better one this will make you stronger I run magic resistance a good choise to supportsticks. Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist I dont like these at all your choise.
Greater Quintessence of Gold This is a must 100% to any support the gold will help him alot and your other supports.

Summoners Spells Supportsticks

You wan't max Terrify for the most important CC in game and soon Dark Wind for Silence and damage. And Drain last for do some damage. If you really fed and getting to much damage maxing Drain 2nd instead 3rd can help you stay longer in a lane if not just follow the abilities sequence.


Guide Top

Useless spells

DO NOT BRING AND NEVER USE LIKE THIS
Clarity useless you not supportish and never touch this in your whole life, Even if you was support there is more important.
Garrison take this and ruin the game.
Ghost may be helpfull you under level 12 and not have Flash
Revive and Heal Revive is useless either heal too because it for support.
Cleanse useless you got Flash with Smite/ Ignite/ Exhaust and even better item like Quicksilver slash.
Smite Unless you jungle.
Ignite Unless you middle lane.
Exhaust Unless you support.
