Threats to Fiddlesticks with this build
|Fiddlesticks||Fiddlesticks is an interesting champion to talk about, especially with his kit. He is Surprisingly more Beginner-Friendly then Experienced or Mastered-Friendly, due to his Passive giving you a quick burst of speed after standing still. His real abilities allow his to fill more Utility wise then anything, with his Q to Fear people, His E to make bounces of silences, which is were he comes to some of the nice work in teamfights, if it does bounce to several champions, and his ultimate allows him to be more of a peeler then a champion of brute force, even with his Ultimate doing a whole bunch of damage.|
Intro: Fiddlesticks: The Evil Genius of Fiddletanx
Yeeeah.. Took me about 3 Days to finally work on Fiddlesticks. .3.
Full Story: Sadly enough for me, I don't think I can make the 2 Champions a Day promise, since although I see them as easy to build, actually talking about every single detail I know about them, and especially for teamfights was enough for me to make it 1 champion a day. Since I came back from not actually finishing the guide for Fiddlesticks, I want to be a Freebird. I am going to nerf my plans from 2 Champions a Day, to 1 champion every 1-3 Days. That Way, I can Still Study the Champions as much as I need to, and Play League without hustling and rushing myself to make the builds. I know that this sucks for you guys, but it's too stressful for me to make the promise. I'm really sorry. And I'm sorry I've let you all down. I'll still be making guides, but at least with some breathe of fresh air and cooling my mind down, so that way the champions will have a better look at thier kit. I Hope you Understand.
About the Build:
Toppletanx is where this more or less shines the most. You can get 300 Armor and good 200 MR with all 5 Defensive Items, and Fiddlesticks will do so much work. Frozen Heart is going to make sure that no Pokey Attack-Speed Lover will hurt you as much, and Spirit Visage will
Assist your drain a little bit better. He is Defenitly the most chilled laner out of the other three Fiddletanx build.
Example Build: Frozen Heart, Mercuary's Treads, Spirit Visage, Zhyonyah's Hourglass, Warmong's Armor, Ryial's Crystal Specter
People like playing Fiddlesticks in the Jungle, and he does some of the most simplest Jungles in the game, even though his clear time isn't that fast, but still fairly good. This does mean that Fiddletanx play a little bit more aggressive in the Jungle side, but either then that, you're still more utility based then anything I fell, but it all pays off for Fiddle, since he just Terrifies, Dark Wind + Drain Combo, and letting your Mid Laner do all the work for you for your free assist.
Example Build: Tracker's Knife - Runic Echos, Mercuary's Tread's, Frozen Heart, Zhonya's Hourglass, Spirit Visage, Guardian Angel
Middletanx is Pretty much just like Top, but more Passive farming and staying alive and less chilling out in the lane and farming up some minions, and he needs to step it up a notch to survive. Middle Sticks is Great because you can cancel out some of the more Mobile champions such as Leblanc and Zed with your fear and then Dark wind. His job as a Middle Laner is actually reasonably enough, and I guess one of main reasons why Fiddlesticks can go anywhere but ADC.
Example Build: Zhonya's, Boots of Lucidity, Abyssal Specter, Spirit Visage, Luden's Echo, Guardian Angel
Since He's his kit is more Utility-based then anything, I thought that this would be good idea to talk but him. Supportistyx just needs to play as passive as he can, while still warding and doing work. The problem about Supportistyx is that is frail, allowing him to be an easy target, but the later the game goes, the more Fiddlesticks can do so much work. His Kit will only be used against champions however, (Expect his W.) since he can Fear and Silence, to cripple his enemies.
Example Build: Sightstone, Boots of Lucidity, Frost Queen's Claim, Banner of the Command, Zhonya's, Guardian Angel
Fiddlesticks' OP Skins: Broken/Beyond Broken (8/10)
For the Riches: If you want to look rich with fiddlesticks, then unfortunately for you, you came to the wrong place, as he's yet to get an epic skin so far. You only have Risen Fiddlesticks and Dark Candy Fiddlesticks to make Fiddlesticks more OP
For the Standards: fortunately for you, The rest of his other skins are OP enough for you to use any of his other skins, as they are all OP by their standards.
Disaproval Skins: None.
LCS Approval: Diamond I/Challenger I (24/23/27)
For TL;DR: Fiddle is Cheesy to Win, but He's a complete nuisance to the enemy team. Your more of a Support when it comes to jungling, with your Es and Qs, but he can do SO much work.
For Full Information: There is a lot that that Fiddlesticks can do, such as Silencing or Fearing, which are both powerful enough to be Jungle Support-ish Ganker, but he has a clunky type of behaviour with his kit that makes him to be available to gank easier when he stand still under a brush, uses R, and just AoEs everyone. Not to Mention on how he can just Spam his Drain on Monsters with Ease, So That's always a nice thing for him to have. So even standing still for his abilities allows him to have a little reward for doing so. Again, The Only Issues that I have with Fiddle is that he is just Clunky, and He wouldn't do as much damage as he intends, which is why I like making him a Fiddletanx instead.
