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.
Welcome to the all new ****** Build. For newcomers, this is a real ****** suggested build. for those who haven't known, ****** is an awesome player at League of Legends. He went 7/0/4 as Shen in a 7v4 once, and then did it again in a 8v3. He knows what he's talking about.
*RECORD: THIS IS DOCUMENTED BY SOMEONE WHO IS NOT ******, ****** RECOMMENDED THIS BUILD TO ME*
Rally is your best friend. Rally causes any DPS team to skyrocket in damage. It is hard to counter anything of this magnitude. Take this.
Heal is a clutch spell. This spell will regenerate almost all of Fiddle's health if used with Drain. NEVER underestimate Heal.
Doran's Shield is a great item, it gives you defense and is cheap too. Grab this.
Berserker's Greaves give WAY too much attck speed and causes your damage output to skyrocket when used with Rally.
Now for attack speed:
Grab Phantom Dancer and Stark's Fervor. These give too much attack speed and the crit chance and life steal is great on him. Make Fiddles almost OP.
Now for attack damage:
Grab Bloodthirster and Black Cleaver. Black Cleaver tops out your attack speed and lowers armor, which is a Fiddle's weakness. Bloodthirster gives you that needed damage and lifesteal. If you have to, jungle ASAP for one of them.
If you are reading this, you may be wondering "Why would I play Fiddles like this? Isn't he a mage?" While you are correct, I will show you the pros and cons for each.
Pros for ****** Fiddles:
Lifesteal and a drain
Easy to gank because of fear
Ult becomes more deadly with AD behind it
Silence and AD neutralizes mages like Ryze.
Hard to kill
Cons for ****** Fiddles:
Bad early game because of farming
Pros for Mage Fiddles:
Drain heals a lot
Passive helps, sort of
Cons for Mage Fiddles:
Terrible AP ratios
Fear doesn't help enough
Easy to kill
Items are expensive
As you can see, AP Fiddles is not nearly as good as ****** Fiddles.
How to play:
Fiddles is a deadly, but fragile champion early game. to play him early game, you MUST grab a Doran's Shield to survive. If people flame you, ignore them, they haven't tried ****** Fiddles.
Aim for minions, and harass with your birds. Ganking is optional but unnecessary IMO. Minion kills are more suited for you.
When Mid Game comes around, start getting REAL offensive. With boots and a Phantom Dancer, you can easily kill other AD champions like Xin Zhao and Tryndamere (in fact, this build is considered a hard counter to Tryndamere). Team fights aren't your strong point, aim for ganks and 1v1s. I have out-dueled people like Xin and Nocturne many times, don't underestimate it.
Late game, you should be fed by about 2 or 4 kills above everyone else, and your build should be done. Since Drain and lifesteal makes him almost invincible, you can even grab a Sword of the Occult if you feel like it. It's never too late.
****** Fiddles is a great character to play as and a real treat to play. Make sure to like this and have a good day!
