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.
this is a simple guide.
Fiddle sticks is really easy to play. I my self am not a good player but when i play fiddle sticks i get first place in most games.
Start of getting boosts that 20 magic penetration plus you passive and the runes allow you to do true DMG to most players.
also rod of ages is a great item and that just gives to a ton of health and ability power for the price.
and thorn mail only get if you are playing melee characters. (which is 95% of the time) all your life steal and armor they almost kill them self's.
game normally ends before i get the death cap.
I tried the other guides and using their builds and i didn't like it so i made this.
Strikes a target unit with fear, causing it to flee in terror for a duration.
Strikes a target enemy unit with fear, causing it to flee in terror for 1/1.5/2/2.5/3 second(s).
Cost 65/75/85/95/105 Mana
This spell ain't doing any dmg, but it's a good spell if you know what to use it to.
-Can be used on champ like Katarina Nunu etc. Witch ulties can be canceled with fear and stun.
-Can be used to so your team can catch up, then you will almost be 100% secure to get the kill.
-It can be used to get away, if a fast champ is chasing you, use Terrify on him, and they will be feared so u can run away.
Fiddlesticks saps the life force of an enemy, dealing damage to a target over time and healing himself.
Deals 60/90/120/150/180 (+0.5) magic damage each second to target unit and heals Fiddlesticks for ////% of the damage dealt.
Lasts up to 5 seconds.
Cost 80/90/100/110/120 Mana
This is going to be your main ability, u use Crowstorm, Terrify, Drain and then Dark Wind. Or if u understand this better then R,Q,W,E this is in teamfights, dont use your Ulti when your are 1vs1. 1vs1 u use Terrify, Drain] and then Dark Wind.
A wisp of wind strikes an enemy unit and then bounces to nearby enemy units, dealing damage and silencing the victims.
Strikes an enemy target and then bounces to a nearby enemy unit. Deals 65/90/115/140/165 (+0.45) magic damage and silences for 1.2 seconds for each strike.
Can bounce up to 5/5/5/5/5 times and may strike the same target multiple times.
Cost 50/70/90/110/130 Mana
A very good ability, it Silence and it can bounce, EVERY time they are 2 or 3 runnning away with no creeps around them u are gonna use Dark Wind, then it bounces between this players and they lose alot of HP. U can also use it to farm minions, it does great dmg and as i sayd Fiddle the Piddle is very item depended, so use it to that too.
his is your main initiation and best team fighting spell in your arsenal. Always enter into a team fight with this move if you can and try to aim for the squishy hero's hiding in the back. This spell in combination with flash is an excellent way to close the distance to any position on the map. After getting to the position you want quickly cast Dark Wind, Terrify the main damage source and then Drain someone with a goodly amount of health to fully utilize the 5 seconds of Drain. A lot of times people make the mistake of being greedy and cast Drain on low health champions for the quick kill. These champions will melt away and die inside your Crowstorm so using drain on them are a waste of time and will often get you killed. Drain someone with lots of health to make sure you still have lots of health after the initial scare and initial focus your bound to attract.
I strongly believe this is best build for quick fighting in dominion.
The reason i did not take the hour glass is because i'm terrible with landing my crow storm.
Also i find thorn mail works a lot better.
Hope you enjoy this guide. Try it out and rate please.
ps. English is not my first language
Fiddlesticks excels as a massive AOE nuke that wins teamfights and is one of the best disablers in the game. During a teamfight, you can instantly kill a champion of your choice by using Crowstorm, Dark Wind, Terrify, and Drain on the same target. But, LoL is a team game, so unless there's just one carry that has to go, use you abilities to benefit the entire team.
Use Crowstorm, and then Terrify the Carry or champion who is dealing the most damage. This will severely reduce the amount of damage your team is taking. Next, launch a Dark Wind at the tank or character who is giving the most CC. This will silence them and stop the other team from stunning/silencing your team. From there, turn around and start to Drain the Champ who has the biggest damage output(this is usually the Carry that you just hit with Terrify). Now, you have wiped out their damage, and blocked out their CC. Without these 2 factors, their team has no choice but to fall back. Now, if they have 2 champs with large DPS, hit the second champ with Exhaust. This will slow and further reduce their damage output as well as making them more prone to die from your Crowstorm or another teammate's attacks.
VERY IMPORTANT: Unless you are fighting 1v1 or are getting killed, DO NOT Exhaust and Terrify the same target. Dark Wind will hit at the bare minimum 2 champions and silence. Terrify affects another, and your Exhaust should take out another. 1v5 hold pretty good odds in your favor as opposed to wasting a perfectly good ability on a target that is no longer a viable player in the fight.
Overall, Fiddlesticks is most commonly considered a strong competitor in low ELO but quickly loses his effectiveness in higher level games where experienced players know how to counter him. I beg to differ. A variety of CC and a game changing ultimate makes Fiddlesticks viable in all ELOs. There is no nerf or defense against a well played Fiddle.
So, I hope you enjoyed my guide. Please leave any questions or comments below and remember to vote.
But please don't downvote because you don't agree with one piece of my build and if you do, please leave a comment below to explain why.
Mobafire isn't a competition about 'whose guide is better'. It's a database that allows people who are new to the champion to get an idea as to how to play and it's a way for people who have played for a while to exchange strategies and builds in an effort to learn from each other. Downvoting without commenting deprives me and other people that chance to learn. So once again, please comment.
