Somthing about me.

Hi all,

This is my very first guide, i playing LoL about one year now and Fizz is my favourite champion.
I saw lot of people max his Urchin Strike or Playful / Trickster and then they sepeak Playful / Trickster is Fizz best ability whay not max it. Some of them even initiate with it, but I think thats just wrong way!

I like to show you my Fizz playstyle :)

FIzz's Skills

Fizz's passive is Nimble Fighter

This passive is realy great stuff for turret diving because you can walk through minons. And second great stuff is lower received damage on basic attack because you are mostly agains rangeds on mid lane.

Fizz`s Q is Urchin Strike

This Ability make fizz dash towards or through target. It can be used both like gap closer or for escaping and also it can be used in combination with your Playful / Trickster if tharget is to far. This ability is used mostly for gap closing!

Fizz`s W is Seastone Trident

With this ability Fizz passively gets auto attacks that 'rend' people - a DoT based on missing health. Active gives auto attacks bonus magic damage Perfect mage spell because it does not need AD or ArPen to help it scale. Perfect assassin spell because helps you burst down low health targets even more easily. I use it a lot in lane for cheap easy harass.

Fizz`s E is Playful / Trickster

This ability is probably my favourite in whole LoL, with it you can jump in the air making you untargetable for few seconds (Its useful, you can avoid [Karthus] ult (You can avoid all ults :)) with it or basicly jump over the walls). This ability is maxed second and its used after W Q combo ( Seastone Trident and Urchin Strike) to eather run from fight or to deal additional demage to enemy.

Fizz` Ulti is Chum the Waters

Fizz throw a skillshot shark that stick to target and slows them.A shark will then come eat the fish and knock up any nearby enemies dealing damage as well.This spell means certain death to anyone it hits in a teamfight. Also use it to follow up on your Urchin Strike, Seastone Trident and then folowed up with Playful / Tricksterto make perfect combo to CC/burst your opponent. Take your time and make sure to land it and dont use it to run away.

Summoner Spells

Flash is most popular spell in LoL, its great for goaing over walls,catching enemy, and ascapeing.

Ghost is great spell for Fizz but half of spell is weaisted bicouse of Fizz`s passive Nimble Fighter allready can go troght minions and champions (His passive ignores unit collision just like Ghost). So i rather prefer Flash.

Ignite is very great in combo with Seastone Trident. So i think its the best spell for Fizz.

Heal was an excellent choice for Fizz before riot nerffed it. He was used like this. You get it instead of Flash. Bicouse its better on 1v1 situations. And when you need to escape you use Playful / Trickster , but if u need dmg to kill you just use it to kill ofc :D. I played with Heal before but now Barrier come out and Heal is nerffed. To be honest i didnt try barier jet.

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration

Greater Seal of Mana Regeneration

Greater Glyph of Ability Power

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

So i think a lot of you think why ManaReg seals, whay dont get instead get more AP. Its becouse fizz waste lot of mana goaing W->Q combo ( Urchin Strike<- Seastone Trident), So you should go in base to get mana or buy mana pots and waste your gold, with MR runas you can just stay in lane forewer :). When you get duble Doran's Ring you dont need to worry about mana.

3. Get your E and go with W->Q + E combo ( First you go W->Q and then if you se you beating enemy you go E for additional damage, but if you se he is beatting you you go retreat with E )

Starting Items

Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion are the best starting items for Fizz becouse you need that sustain (thats only sustain Fizz have), and Boots of Speed will help you to easier avoid skillshots like Diana`s Q Crescent Strike or like Nidalee`s Q Javelin Toss / Takedown after that i always get my duble Doran's Ring for extra damage and ManaReg.
This starting item would only give AP, and a little sustain wtih Health Potion. You would only want to get these if you lack Ability Power Runes, or if you feel that you need as much AP as early as possible.
Doran's Ring is also one another great starting item, you would definitely want this if you're going again burst champions(e.g. LeBlanc), since the health will help survive their burst damage more, since you sacrificed early mobility for this, I would recommend buying the Boots of Speed as early as possible.

Fizz`s Ranked Counters


We all know the Rayze is far best counter for fizz but thats not true, good fizz player will alvays win rayze I have never lost as Fizz vs. Ryze. Until level 3, I let Ryze push and just passively farm. Once I reach level 3, I jump on him with Urchin Strike-> Seastone Trident + activate my Ignite and slow him with Playful / Trickster. Because he is pushed up, he is far away from turret. Usually, I get a kill off of this, setting up mid for the rest of laning. Fizz vs. Ryze is one of my favorite lanes. If you need it, pop ghost and get the kill. The lane is done once Fizz gets a kill, in my experience.
Starting Items: Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion or Doran's Ring


Morde will be a nightmare for you, when you get in for last hits he'll punish you with E/Q. The only chance you got winning this lane is early domination. Morde is weak on lvl 1-3, so are you, but you got a slow, he doesn't! Get your jungler to gank him before he hits lvl 4 and tell him that he should try giving the kill to you. When Morde comes back on lane play as agressive as possible. The biggest mistake you can do is trying to farm only, because he will outfarm you anyways. You have to harass him as much as possible in order to win your lane and you definitly depend on the help of your jungler and your blue buff. The best would be a blue buff on lvl 2 tbh, because then you can avoid his Q with your E and jump on his head, you'll win a trade against his E.
Starting Items: Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion


A lot of you people apparently don't know how to play Fizz if you think Akali counters him.
Fizz is an aggressive character, you don't play him passively. I see people saying Akali can negate Fizz's escape with his ' Playful / Trickster ' This is true, but why are you escaping in the first place? Fizz has crazy burst + sustained dps. He has two aoe abilities that negate her shroud completely (You just ' Playful / Trickster ' in the shroud, wait for her to hit you, shark her (it still sticks to her even if you can't see her), and wait patiently for the shark to appear, then when the shroud disappears you Urchin Strike-> Seastone Trident and destroy her.
Starting Items: Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion
