"Your bidding, master!"
Fiddles is my favorite champ and i will make this simple but usefull guide for all those people who wants to be a scary op caster and dont fed
This guide is based on cooldown "i can beat any tank" fiddlesticks

if i could harass and lvl up to 30 then you could...i think...
sorry for my bad english

Why your fiddlesticks stack magic penetration?simple
more magic penetration or negative magic resist means more damage
if you only stack ability power they (soon or late) will get magic resist and you will do almost 0 damage
magic penetration its usefull to take out tanks like Garen,Cho Gath,Nasus,Mundo ect
and ad carriers/ap casters will think twice before do 1v1 against you since they have only 30+- magic resist at start and it doesnt grows much at late game

Percentage Magic Resistance Reduction
The targets Magic Resistance is reduced by a percentage.
If the target has 30 magic resist and then has its magic resistance reduced by 20% the target will take damage as if it had only 24 magic resist

Flat Magic Penetration
If the target has 30 magic resist and you have 10 magic penetration, the target will take damage as if it had only 20 magic resist.
30 - 10 = 20

Runes & Masteries

I think I will let you suffer for a while...
Fiddlesticks is so op if you stack cooldown
you can terrify and drain and its so annoying to other playes(they will hate you)
also you could spam your ult every +- 60 seconds

Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction

Greater Seal of Cooldown Reduction

This runes synergise with your passive
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Greater Quintessence of Magic Penetration

Are you afraid?
Masteries are 9/0/21
with Archaic Knowledge you get 15% more magic penetration
Crippledoes same because it slows enemies and debuff them(-10 magic resistance)
this masteries combined with Abyssal Mask Void Staff Haunting Guise Sorcerer's Shoesand runes you ll get 49%/51 magic penetration
Intelligence more and more cooldown is allways good for the old Fiddlesticks you could spam drain and terrify ,that means healing and nice damage per second

with Expanded Mind Meditation Perseverence you get mana regen plus Morello's Evil Tome you will get almost 50 mana per second
if you have mana problems try to get Blue buff
with Presence of the Master you could cast Exaust and Ghost almost everytime

Sumo-nerd spells

will save you because fiddles is really slow
also will give you enough range to cast terrify or chase when you ult
gives -10 magic resist to enemies,slows them and makes them do less damage

if you dont like ghost use this
its nice to scape or keep enemies on ult range

Fiddlesticks never uses Heal he drains
neither Clarity
Smite usefull if you will jungle,but i dont
Ignite usefull only at start or against Tryndamere
Teleport only if you really need to save a lane

Skills sequence

At start allways wait for lvl 2 to get Terrify
then harass your enemies with drain,free heal is allways nice
use your [{Dark Wind]] to do first or last hit

after you ult focus on the squishiest champion(like Ryze/Ashe for example)
Crowstorm then Dark Wind
Terrify then [[Drain]
easy as pie,if you die im sure you ll get at least 1 kill and some assist

-NEVER start with dark wind it just randomly bounce
-Drain as much as you can (remember with this guide you will get 0 cooldown)
-Crowstorm+darkwind+drain = 800 damage per second to a single target and 500+ to the rest of them

Items and gameplay

First get Doran's Ring , level up your Drain and go lane like a pro
you will need a good partner to do that like Xin Zhao Mordekaiser or Tryndamere but ALISTAR is the best for you,Amumu could help and Sona too,but its better if you lane with an ad tank or a nice ap caster/suport(they benefit of your passive skill)
Allways take care of stuners or caster who have silence
you jungle and kill the dragon at lvl 3 but i preffer to lane

Mid is allways challenging because Fiddlesticks is not long ranged but if you want to go ahead,you ll earn nice exp and some gold
harass some minions or champs(just terrify and drain them) then recall and get another Doran's Ring and Boots of Speed

make your Fiendish Codex as soon as possible then upgrade it to Morello's Evil Tome and your boots to Sorcerer's Shoes

if you're harassing make your Abyssal Mask otherwise do Haunting Guise

item tips
-why 2 rings?
+200 heal mana regen and 30 ap at start,its better than nothing
-why not Rod of Ages ?
1)its not cheap
2)gives only 1 ap per min,in 1 min you could kill 2 or 3 champs
3)healt and mana bonus is insignificant
-can i use Hextech Gunblade?
do at your own risk

i use this spots to use my Crowstorm
-NEVER EVER use your ult when enemies have you on sight
-also never ult if your team falls back
-dont use to do a 1v1 fight only if you need some gold and make someone mad
-if your team is brazilian/spanish ping before you ult
-never ult near Garen,Amumu or casters with stun/taunt/knockback
-KILL YOURSELF if you ult near a n00b Janna(really you will hate her if she ults)[/img]

make your last items Void Staff and Rabadon's Deathcap(this will boost your ap and magic penetration)sell your rings if you need to
then make a nice Rylai's Crystal Scepter
the area of effect of your crowstomr will slow them enough so they could not scape

wait for your team win
just remember to not ult alone
do 1 vs 1 only if you think that you could win
dont run in circles terrifying everyone and draining,focus on squishy champions

thanks for reading
if you have ideas to improve this guide just tell me
see you on battlefield

i use this custom skin is better than original one
