Well, see the question above:P

I discovered that Fiddlesticks in mid is becoming completely useless, because he gets outranged/outdamaged against most champions with good burst, like LeBlanc. His jungle is, after the jungle nerf, pretty bad too because of the slow clear times. But is it possible to leave jungle/mid and let him transfer to top lane? I want to test that to implement it in my build but before I do that I want to know if any of you have some experience with him already at top, because I want to try it out but don't want to do that with little knowledge.

So, if any of you can tell me something about his experiences top, please comment!

It's a decent enough idea, but the problem is that so many tops have the pushing ability and CC to just flat shut down Fid out of the gate (*cough*Irelia*cough*).

Yeah but you have the Terrify for the Fear and the E Dark Wind to Silence them. Can't you shut down Irelia with that?

Use him as counter for vlad on top lane, otherwise go jungle.

I support Slappiz' opinion - use Fiddle to counter certain enemies. He should work really well against enemies who have no CC and not enough damage to get through the drain. Preferably they are also relatively weak pushers, so they can't simply push and counterjungle/gank other lanes while you desperately try to last hit under your tower.

Fiddle is viable as a toplaner as a counter pick. Possible Champions to counter:
- Olaf
- Vladimir
- Akali
- Fiora
- Tryndamere
- Kayle
- Yi
- Mordekaiser
- Nasus
- Nidalee
- Rumble
- Teemo
- Yorick

Take this with a grain of salt... I never tested that, and if the enemies have ignite, often their damage will be enough to kill you through drain when they reach certain levels (e.g. Olaf 9 will straight up kill you if he has ignite ready)

She'll just turn around and stun you after drain starts, then whack off whatever healing you got :x

It's a better choice against the tops that don't have CC to shut down your drain though.
