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.
So this is my first build on mobafire, take it easy on me^^
We're going to go over your jungle route as well as early level ganking all the way to late game team fighting.
Masteries/Starting items and your jungle
Your using a pretty much standard caster page with the exception of taking Improved Ignite instead of 15% magic pen. Before you say any mean names, remember that you have a passive that lowers enemy resists.
After you masteries and runes are sorted your going to start with an amplifying tome and a health pot, then head on your way to your blue. Assuming you don't get ganked your going to take blue first, WITH NO LEASH. start off with ignite straight into a drain on the big blue golem, IMMEDIATELY AFTER your drain ends take the health pot and auto attack until your drain is ready again, drain him 3 times in total and hes dead, drain the other 2 little guys and your done with blue. Although i havnt tried without my runes or with different runs i start with 30 ap from runes and come between about 30-70 hp from death every time so you ahve to have the right runes and you have to be quick with your fingers. After blue its a smooth ride.
Do wolves, then witch camp, red and golems and your done your jungle at level 4.
depending on which side you started on your either ganking top or bottem. its pretty simple usually. hide in the bushes, q,e,w and an ignite usually does it. After you gank be sure to go back to base and get your soulstealer and a cople mana pots( you want to get stacks ASAP ). by now you should be level 4 and have your soulstealer ready for some stacks, your going to want to get level 6 as soon as you can, do this by grabbing wolf's, witch camp and golems, then head to gank whoever is over extended.
Moar Items and variations
Always be sure to grab a mana potion or two when you b back, and pick up blue buff whenever you can. Even after the latest nerf on fiddle, he still does crazy damage with little to no AP, so i tend to get rod of ages and rylai's scepter first( after soulstealer and boots ) and after those two items you'll want to pick up a deathcap and depending on how the other team is built i like to get either a warmogs or an hourglass, sometimes a void staff, it just depends on the match.
As far as boots goes either cooldown or magic pen work i tend to always get 20 stacks on my soulstealer and with blue and cooldown boots my ulti is up very often.
In mid to late levels try to recognize where the fight is going to happen. let someone other than yourself initiate and try to ulti right into the middle. Be sure to throw your fear on a high dps enemy champion and throw your e as fast as you can, then you want to put your drain on whatever you fear'd or another high threat enemy and dont forget to ignite aswell.
REMEMBER TO USE FLASH WITH YOUR ULTI!!!
Flash is great to have with your ulti, you can either ulti from far away and flash into enemies OR use it to chase while your ulti'ing and they are running. Be sure to utulize the built in "Flash" that your ulti has. and pick hidden spots to channel in, like bushes or behind walls, just somewhere that your channeling isnt going to be interrupted.
