Hey everyone, welcome to the Fiddlesticks Community Guide. Hopefully this will help you guys that are trying him out after the rework. My league name is TFK but you can call me Frozen.If you vaguely remember my name, then that's probably because you saw my old guide on Fiddlesticks and I just wanna thank you all for using my guide or even just viewing it. And-so lets just pop out the bush and get right into it.

PROS CONS
Fast Clear Time Really Squishy
Amazing Engage Low Mobility
A LOT of CC and Utility Weak Early
Provides lots of vision Ultimate Reliant
These are the biggest pros and cons to Fiddlesticks

Fiddlesticks is a really fun champion to play, if you know what you're doing. His new kit is a tad bit difficult to get used to at first but after playing with it for a while you'll be able to make the most out of his new kit. When it comes to Fiddlesticks, he's suppose to be THE ambush jungle champ because of his new Q passive, Terrify which is automatically fears enemies if they can't see you. So if you land a successful ultimate on the enemy team and they don't have vision on you it could result on a five-man instant fear. Fiddlesticks is a straightforward champion to play, he provides a good amount of crowd control with his Terrify that fears, his Reap that slows and silences depending on where you hit your enemy, and his ultimate Crowstorm which does AOE damage around him for a few seconds

Fiddlesticks is by far one of the squishiest champs in league. And because of that a lot of junglers will take advantage of that and try to invade early since Fiddle is weak early game. Also even though your ult is a good engage if your channel were to interrupted then your engage falls through and you'll have to wait until your ult is back up again. Since his old passive got removed Fiddlesticks now has lower mobility. Which means landing a good engage is vital now or you'll be a sitting duck.

Dark Harvest is probably be the most common keystone you will use in the Domination Tree. This keystone is primarily used with Fiddlesticks because it helps with scaling. The more you gank or fight the enemy team the more likely you are to get DH stacks. You usually get your DH stacks from you Reap, sometimes from your Bountiful Harvest, and your ultimate Crowstorm during a team fight or a post-level 6 gank.
Cheap Shot is your go to rune since it gives you burst of true damage on his E Reap.
Eyeball Collection is just to help Fiddle scale more towards the mid and late game since the more takedowns you do the more ap it gives you. 1 AP per eyeball up to a total of 20 AP.
Ultimate Hunter is what makes this rune page work. This just lowers your ult cd at base 5% and then an additional 4% per Bounty Hunter stack. SO the more you use your ultimate the more you stacks you get and the sooner you'll be able to ult again.
Nimbus Cloak is a great secondary rune to have because of the bonus movement speed it gives Fiddlesticks after using a summoner spell like Smite or Flash.
Gathering Storm is pretty much the late game scaling rune. The longer the game goes on the more ap fiddle will gain.

A Harmless Scarecrow (Passive):
Fiddlesticks new passive is called A Harmless Scarecrow. Fiddlesticks now starts each game with an exclusive "Scarecrow Effigy", which replaces his trinket slot. Effigy's can be used as a ward.
Once you hit level 6, placing an effigy grants obscured vision of the revealed area as well as reveal and disable enemy wards near it for 6 seconds, it's like a built in Sweeping Lens.
When spotted by an enemy champion the effigy will look like it is using one of Fiddlesticks animations.
Terrify Q
Passive: All enemy units are afflicted with Dread when Fiddlesticks is out of combat for 2.5 seconds and is unseen by enemy champions. His next damaging ability against an enemy will fear them.
Active: Fiddlesticks shrieks at the target enemy, dealing magic damage and fearing them for 1-2 seconds depending on level. However, since enemies can only be feared by Terrify's passive once every few seconds. Terrify's active damage and minimum damage threshold are doubled if its target has recently been feared.
Bonus: feared enemies are slowed by 90%.
Bountiful Harvest W
Fiddlestickstethers himself to all nearby enemies and channels for up to 2 seconds. While channeling, tethered enemies are revealed, and he deals magic damage to them every 0.25 seconds, with the last tick dealing additional magic damage. Fiddlesticks heals himself for a percentage of the damage dealt. If all targets break their tethers by moving out of range, the ability ends immediately. If the ability is fully channeled or all targets are slain, 60% of the remaining cooldown is refunded.
Reap E
Fiddlesticks swings his scythe in a crescent-shaped area at the target location, dealing magic damage and slowing enemies for 1.25 seconds. The slow scales ranging from a 30% slow to a 50% slow.
Bonus: Enemies hit in the center of the area are also silenced for 1.25 seconds
Crowstorm R
After channeling for 1.5 seconds, Fiddlesticks blinks to a target location with a murder of crows, dealing AOE magic damage to nearby enemies every 0.25 seconds for 5 seconds

Since you're jungling with Fiddlesticks it's best that you start to max out your W Bountiful Harvest first. This sustains fiddle while he's farming as well as give Fiddle one of the fastest clear times as a jungle champ. Not only that but it also helps negate the damage you've taken by enemy champs since it heals you a lot.

Secondly you want to max your E Reap. This is extremely powerful when ganking. Not only is it a slow so you can use to continue to chase the enemy champion, you also have a chance to silence them it you hit them within the center of the attack. Also people tend to get called out by the range of it, so you can potentially poke and gather your DH stacks.

Finally comes his Q Terrify. The reason why we have his fear to be maxed last is because of his passive which gives us an automatic fear if the enemy doesn't see us.

The only time I would switch Terrify and Reap in maxing order is when you have to deal with a tank heavy team.

Pathing with Fiddlesticks can go however you want to be very honest. He is one of the few junglers in league that can start jungling without a leash. But just because he can solo camps level 1 doesn't mean that hes not susceptible to early game invades. He's still squishy early but that's why were here.

The image above shows two jungle paths for fiddle. The one in the RED is the advanced path and the one in the BLUE is the basic path.

In the video above we show you how to farm both Raptors and Red Buff first
then move to your Wolves
followed by Gromp and Blue Buff
and then finally Scuttle which could potentially lead to a gank either top or mid lane.

In the video above we show you the basics path to farm with Fiddle.
First you go your Raptors
Then Red Buff
And lastly your Krugs
and we go over to your blue side in which we
    first you take your
wolves
then you can take both your Blue Buff and your Gromp at the same time
finally to can go take [scuttle] for a potential gank mid lane.

Fiddlesticks truly shines post level 6, and that's when he can gank all lanes with his ultimate.
