Summoner Spells Back to Top

3.png and 4.png are what I normally run. But 12.png can work good too. Going Super Agressive? 4.png14.png.
3.png and 6.png are good when using 3069_32.png.
6.png and 4.png if you want that sticking power or someone else has 3.png. Don't recommend it tho.
4.png and 14.png if you are vs 16_64.png or 37_64.png.

Hyper Agressive Fiddle:

3.png14.png Will make any laner cry... But it's hard to pull off. Not recommended and strongly advice against in Solo Q.

Update on the skill order! 5.4

Since the nerf on the W range, we need to find a way to CC more and Drain less. This is the new way to carry out games. Early Drakes give your team an huge advantage and can win you games. 1º Aspect of the Dragon gives you 6% AP and AD. Not might not seem like alot, but it can make the difference in a 2v2 on bot lane. 2º Aspect is what you wanna get. 10% Damage to Towers... If your ADC is 222_64.png or 18_64.png you can push down towers so fast... 

New Skill Order: 1 Point on E, 2 points on W for the early Drake, Max R-Q-W-E.

Just the normal set up. Won't change it probably. Some may say that maxing W is better but W is much more of a Mid Game tool. I start with E. The poke with it? Amazing. Try to hit with people that are next to minions so it bounces more, getting you more damage on them. If they are alone, use it on them. Make them fear you and watch them miss all the CS. Now, look at your health. Is it low? Get a point on W. Are you ok on health? Point on Q for a harder CC. 

The enemy jungler comes to gank you and he jumps (Lee Sin, Xin, Kha) to you or the ADC? Think:
Can you turn on him, kill him and or the laners?  Time to Smack him with a E-Q-W and kill him.
Will you or your ADC die if you fight? Q-E and run.

9_64.png's combo is what people really fear. The ult can come from any bush! And when he lands, the damage will melt anyone that still stands.

Pre-6: E to a minion if the champion isn't in range. Q for the fear and W for the damage. After this you can repeat the same thing to keep the the damage going. If they hugged tower, throw an E at them and watch them go insane! If you get the option of getting a kill or giving it to your ADC, just give him. Your role is not the super damage Fiddle. It's the disruptor. You'll make them panic.

After 6: This is when the fun begins. You'll ask your ADC to either kill or start roaming to other lanes. Everyone will fear you. They'll ward every bush near them. You can ult over walls! Make them run and cry. Roams after 6: Charge the ult from where they can't stop you (Aka check the bush for wards). The rest will be the same.  If they get out of range for your ult, you can 6.png or 4.png after then right after the Ult damage begins. DO NOT FLASH/GHOST IF THE ULT IS ABOUT TO END! It's a waste really.

Another way is to 3157_32.png when you ult, trust me xD

The ult can also be use has an escape: Walk into a bush then they are after you (and hope it's not warded), use the ult to go over the wall. But be carefull, the ult takes alot of time to start and you can be killed so don't waste it.


Fiddle Turnaround:

Reqs: Ultimate Ready, 3157_32.png.

Now this is a trick that I've been using for some time now and I have to say, it works about 90% of the times. This works because people are greedy or just want that one kill. Post 6, when you are low on hp, run to one of your teammates. Ping a brush and go there. Using 3023_32.png while doing this can be helpfull. When they lose line of sight on you, charge your ultimate and when you land, Q-E and 3157_32.png. Watch them run away or just instatly get dropped.

Situational Items

    Explained Below
Explanation:
Old:3302_32.png
New:3303_32.png

I used get 3302_32.png over 3303_32.png for one reason. You would be tankier. But... You'll sell it anyways so why not some extra gold.
But now I start3303_32.png. You get massive Mana Regen and some AP to start with. I do sell it, however, to when I'm about to get my 3157_32.png. This should be when you about to go into teamfights.



Absolute Core items:

3157_32.png, 2045_32.png, 3111_32.png


The builds above are pretty standart. I only build full tank if I really need too.
Now for the explanation on the item sets above:

3001_32.png: It's good. Very good with your passive. But only use it when you are fed or really ahead.

3023_32.png: Utility Item. Still good tho. Use it with the Ult to make people slower. Very situational tho.

3026_32.png: Only for extreme situacions when you're dying to much. Late game it can help, but there are better items.

3027_32.png: Very solid item! Good HP/Mana/AP

3056_32.png: I've fallen in love with this item ever since I 1º used it. Use this if you want to tower dive 24/7.

3075_32.png and 3110_32.png11_64.png is 31/0/2? 114_64.png is 23/1/5?  23_64.png is Trynda? Fed ADC? Get these and watch the magic happen: They'll auto attack you. Alot. Thornmail will make them take damage. 30% to be exact. But here's the kicker: They'll be taking damage but you'll be using Drain. They have no CC so it's basicly saying: Can you just kill yourself? Thank you!



3190_32.pngvs3065_32.png: 99% of the times I get Spirit Visage. It makes your Drain so much better! But if you are vs a team with alot of AP, it's good to have it. The aura is amazing!

3143_32.pngvs3110_32.png: I just like Frozen Heart better. 100 Armour, 400! Mana!! And that attack speed slow? Dear god it's perfect!

Why 3116_32.png? You ult, they are slowed. Great for keeping them in your ult. It's a 15% slow... It's nice. Good for when you wanna carry vs no escape team comps.

Why3111_32.png? Fiddle is weak to CC. Since he has no built in escape, these 3111_32.png will keep you safe and sound. Wait the other team doesn't have CC? Get 3117_32.png to chase people better or get these if these 3047_32.png have auto attack champions.

Why 3157_32.png? To good to pass on! 50 Armour, 120 AP! An active that works wonders with your ult? Just LOVE IT! Totally worth it.

Why 3151_32.png? Its very good! HP, Magic Pen, AP. This is to carry games. Not to take in you are behind.

Why 3800_32.png? It seems to be a weaker version of the 3027_32.png. Its SO GOOD FOR CHASING DON'T TARGETS WHILE HAVING YOUR ULT!



Build Path (example): 3303_32.png-2049_32.png-1001_32.png-3114_32.png-3165_32.png-3117_32.png-3191_32.png-3157_32.png-3211_32.png-3065_32.png-1031_32.png-3075_32.png-2045_32.png-3269_32.png(If you are defending your Nexus 3265_32.png)-2139_32.png.

The way you wanna build is: Rush Sightstone+Mana Regen. You are very mana hungry. Boots. Then 3157_32.png. Then MR/Armour (Depending on the overview of the game). Upgrade to 3111_32.png. Upgrade to 2045_32.png.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

He has CC that can stop your Drain. He can and will kill you if you are alone. But he wastes is jump on a gank/roam, killing him won't be a problem.

VS

Ahri

Easy

High Mobility champion. Her Charm can stop your Drain and Ult charge- Dodging the charm will be key to win!

VS

Akali

Easy

She can hide from you. After her shroud is gone, Fear and Drain her. If she's fed, get a 3190_32.png, to deny her damage. Get 2043_32.png if she's fed, and use it to reveal her.

VS

Alistar

Hard

He can Top, Mid (AP) or Support. He's a CC Beast. Knockup+Knock back. He's the number 1 Counter Initiator in League. Hard Matchup

VS

Amumu

Medium

Oh dear me he's scary late game. He has scary ganks post 6. Don't let him hit that Q.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Bird is not the word you wanna hear. If she's good, hard matchup. If she's bad, get fed off her. Dodge her Stun.

VS

Annie

Hard

Pre-6 you harrass her if she's low on mana. Post-6... The Bear burst will instakill you, if you don't have MR. This 3111_32.png,this 3102_32.png and 3190_32.png are your best friends.

5.4 update. Annie is a burst damage hyper carry support. Care for this matchup.

VS

Ashe

Easy

Kiting potencial, perm slow, Ult that stuns. Hard to follow Ashe but she has no escapes. If she get too confident, kill her.

VS

Azir

Medium

He's a lane bully. His ult is a giant cock block.... Shut him early or you'll have problems late game.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

Dodge the hooks and you'll be fine. He's a one trick pony. He can escape you tho.

VS

Brand

Medium

His burst is really hard but if you dodge the stun, you'll be fine. He can, however, destroy you if he's ahead, so don't 1 v 1 him.

VS

Braum

Easy

Mustache's slow is hard. He can ult to deny you the ult and he can tank it. If he hits you with an auto attack, back up a bit. 4 hits and you get a hard stun. But you are his counter! You can poke with E all day long and he won't be able to deny you!

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

She can and will escape from you. Only if you can silence+fear her can you win. She has a long range so she can kite you very well. Hard to kill. My advice? Ult behind her so she has to run into your team mates. Corner her with ult.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

The new Cassio is a late game hyper carry. SHUT HER DOWN EARLY! She's the "new Kogmaw" of late game.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Nom Nom has a silence like you, a CC like you and is 10x has tanky has you. You CAN'T 1 v 1 a Cho... If he's ahead, avoid him.

VS

Corki

Medium

He's hard to catch and can destroy your armour. Catch him with his escape down and he's yours.

VS

Darius

Medium

The Dunkmaster is a hard matchup. He deals True damage with his passive. If he grabs you, Fear him and run. He'll full combo you and kill you! But if he fails the grab, all in him.

VS

Diana

Medium

Diana is an AP Assassin. She has CC and can be hard to kill. Don't give her kills and you'll be ok. If she's fed, protect your ADC at all costs.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

MUNDO! Just ward your bushes and try and avoid being ganked by him. He will roam. He has nothing to stop you.

VS

Draven

Medium

League of Draven is right. He can stop you and he's one of the best AD's Vs 1 V 1. But in team figths, Draven falls off. If he fails his CC, he has no realiable escape. Kill him. 3075_32.png Is a good item if he's fed.

VS

Elise

Medium

Just don't... Spiderman is OP. Stun, dueling power, early game beast and can burst you down quick. Play it safe and wait for teamfights (where you shine). Elise is bad in teamfights!


She got nerfed recently but she is still very strong.

VS

Evelynn

Easy

She can't stop your Drain. Just Fear and Drain her away. Buy a pink ward or two just to be save tho.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

He can escape you but catch him while his Arcane Shift is down and he's yours!

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

If he's a TankSticks, he can duel you. If he's not, TIME TO DIE SQUISHYSTICKS!

VS

Fiora

Easy

Just follow the items above and you can destroy her. No CC = GG

VS

Fizz

Medium

The Fish can burst you down Post-6. But build MR if he's fed. If he isn't snowballing, he's no threat. 3157_32.png the ult.

VS

Galio

Medium

Nr 1 Counter to every AP. He gets AP by building MR. His ult is a giant Taunt.Only Ult after he ults. Try and get 3222_32.png.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

He can get out of your CC but he relies on Crits for his Q. His ult is global but it won't make a difference to you. Silence then Fear then Drain.

VS

Garen

Easy

DEMANCIAA! Mister Spin to win... His silence can be anoying but Fear him after he starts to spin and he can't to anything to you.

VS

Gnar

Hard

Jump Jump Jump... Hard CC with big Gnar. Play it safe! If Gnar gets fed, he can catch  most people without mobilty (That's you).

VS

Gragas

Hard

He can be hard to kill because his Ult is your counter. Barrel and off you go back where you came from... Just hard to deal with that... After his ult he can still Stun you. Be carefull.

VS

Graves

Hard

Burst ADC. He can escape you by denying you vision and dashing. Corner him and bait his Smokescreen.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

He can chace you. He can fear like you. He can jump like you. He can out duel you and he can snowball better. He is Fiddlesticks 2.0! He can only stop you every other time. If he's ahead, avoid him... If he's behind, you can kill him. Hecarim either snowballs or fall-off to early.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

The Donger is hard if he's support. He has a giant Burst and can poke you down with turrets + stuning you. A tip? Flank him. Come from behind ult in and full combo him. Ping your ADC to follow you. If he Ults one of his turrets at you do this: Let the turret do one attack then 3157_32.png. It will save you.

VS

Irelia

Hard

Tenacity over the top... Your CC can't get to her. She can stun you if she's lower health and she can dash to you. Try to stay at lower HP then her. When she's at 50% health (You need to be lower health), R+Q+E+W combo will kill her. If it doesn't, 3157_32.png.

VS

Janna

Hard

Miss Tornado... Her ult tho... Just hard to kill her. She can CC you so care for this match up.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

1 word. Run if you are on 1v1 that is. His shield can protect him. He can E+Q to stop you. And he can box you in when you ult... Just run! Low CD knock up and an ult that blocks yours from going anywhere... But if he fails that E+Q, he's yours.

VS

Jax

Medium

Jax... The duelist. A good Jax will destroy you. But what if he's not that good? When he charges his stun, Fear him. Don't try to duel him. You'll  lose. 3143_32.png 3110_32.png Your best friends in this case.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Escapes and CC. Hard to roam to his lane and he has sniping potencial. A good Jayce will get fed easy. Only roam when you are sure you can kill him.

VS

Jinx

Easy

No escapes. Love Jinx but she's easy to kill. Dodge the Choppers and the Zap and she's dead meat. 3075_32.png will counter her if she's fed.

VS

Kalista

Medium

She can and will kite you. But that's the funny thing. Kalista is only OP if she's fed or her support is around while she has ult. Other then that she was low movement speed. Catch her by surprise and she's yours for the taking.


5.1 Update: Hurricane Kalista is here. FOCUS her hard on teamfigths. She can kite everyone. Take advantage of her short range.

Tip: Don't get to many spears on you or when she pulls E, you'll get 1 hit.

VS

Karma

Medium

Sa alla sa I don't know the lyrics but she's anoying to say the least. She's a poke late... Early game damage is OP... She wins most trades. Play safe but don't let her push you to tower!

VS

Karthus

Easy

If he's jungling, Steal his 2º blue! Without his blue, he's nothing. When he's out of mana, kill him! DON'T FIGHT HIM IF HE HAS BLUE AND MANA! HIS E WITH KILL YOU! His clear time is over the top! If he gets on to you, remember: His Q does more damage if it only his one target. Use that. Make him waste his mana, then kill him. Save 3157_32.png for when he ults.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

Teleport on 15 secs cooldown! No Kassa no Run. Roam to his lane pre-6 to kill him. Nerfs hit him so hard he is far from viable.

VS

Katarina

Easy

You are her counter. She jumps you? Fear Drain. She jumps and ults? Fear Drain.

VS

Kayle

Medium

Post-6 roams will result in your death if you aren't tanky enough. She can slow you and ult herself, denying you the damage from the ult. But if you surprise her, she's dead.

VS

Kennen

Medium

AOE damage + Alot of Stuns. He has an escape too... Very hard to catch up too.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Change is good for you cause you can trade with him. If he isn't fed. He can't stop you from doing your thing. But he can kill you is he's ahead. He is an assasin. He kills squishys in seconds. 100-0. But you are a tank. He can't stop you from draining him forever. You can win if he's not fed. Q-W and not getting isolated are the keys.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Protect the Kog... You wanna do Destroy the Kog! Kill him non stop. Poke with all the E's you can. Deny him the late game. If late game comes, this goes from easy to very hard!

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

She can't burst you when you have a little bit of MR. But you can't "gank" her. Only if she wastes her escape or is low on mana. Pre-6 roams can work if she over extends.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Avoid fighting him if he's ahead! Pre-6 you can kill him if he misses his Q. Don't duel him post 6. Don't try... But if you get ahead, you get level 6 before he does, go to his buffs, wait for him to waste his energy and cooldowns, R over the wall, E, Q , W him to death!

VS

Leona

Hard

Leona will burn you with stuns and slows. Killing an enemy Leona is very hard. She can peel for any ADC. Her ult in team fights is... Devastating to say the least.

VS

Lissandra

Hard

CC Queen. She can kill you too. She can ult when you all in her to deny you the damage.

VS

Lucian

Medium

He will escape you. Every time. That's how Lucians work. Try to corner him. Even then, care for his burst.

Mana costs...

VS

Lulu

Hard

Avoid her! You cannot kill her! Her ult will keep her safe, she does tons of damage and she has alot of CC!

VS

Lux

Medium

Burst will kill you early on. She can stun you and slow you. Her ult has a long range so be carefull!

VS

Malphite

Easy

His ult is the only thing he has. After that? Nothing. Bait his ult and then use yours. He can, however, slow you alot when you ult, making it hard to follow up. His ult also denys yours. Try and kill him pre-6. He has nothing to stop you, other then his ult.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Easy pre-6. Medium post 6. His ult is a hard damage and his combo can 100-0 most squishys. 1.png is good vs him.

VS

Maokai

Medium

The key to victory? Steal his blues. All of them. Don't ult when he has his ult up. His ult will make it so you take damage while you use yours. He's hard in team fights but 1 v 1 you can kill him. Just avoid fighting him under his ult.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Oh Yi... He can and will backdoor so look at the map. Pre-6, ward one of his buffs and kill him early (With the help from your ADC).

VS

Medium

Her heals can save a team. Her silence... But after that, time for you to Fear and Drain her.

VS

Hard

He's a tanky AP caster. He can stop you with his stun, his ult is like your drain and he's naturally tanky (not you tho).

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

A good TF is hard to kill and can stun you every second. He can also roam and get kills, get fed and destroy towers in seconds with 3100_32.png proced.

VS

Vi

Medium

Q will stop you. She can destroy the armour you built. R will stop you. Try and avoid this! If you can't dodge that Q, it's one of the hardest matchups, possibly your number one counter.

VS

Viktor

Medium
3117_32.png is a must to dodge his E. It can stun you in place very fast! His Q can be hard to dodge. His ult in the problem. You need to "outrun" it. But after his little tricks are done? Time to Q-E-W.

VS

Vladimir

Easy
3102_32.png is a must here. His ult damage destroy you if you have MR. But you do! He has his troll pool but you can just follow him. W him away. He can't duel you.

VS

Volibear

Easy

Q is his CC. After that, you can duel him. But he's an early game beast. Just counter gank him. Volibears usally run into lane with Q on so they can gap-close the target. After you see him running, go in on him and ping your laner to follow you. You can kill him.

VS

Warwick

Easy

R to try and stop you. EQW and you'll be back up. Easy match up.

VS

Wukong

Medium

Pre-6: The monkey can do nothing. He can gank if he's the jungler and prob damage you but a quick Q-E-W will safe you. He can destroy your armour tho, so becarefull.


Post-6: His ult works like your but it knocks people up. Q-E-W again for If he has a 157_64.png on his team, they can 75-0 your team. Take care if you are here.

VS

Xerath

Medium

Only Drain when his stun is down. He has a long range poke. Very hard to dodge if he's good. 3117_32.png will help you dodge quicker. If you see him ulting, be quick! Q him! This will stop his ult. Doing this can save 1 or more people on your team from behind bursted down.

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard

He can trade 1v1 vs almost everyone in game due to his healing power and damage. He has a beast early game too. His ult can make yours useless in teamfights. Bait the ult!

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Mr Atshayo! can be hard to lane or fight against! His W can block your E. But what Yasuo's don't know is: It can't block your W. His Q, if dodged, is no threat. The problem is his ult. After he ults, he gains a MASSIVE 50% armour penetration to bonus armour for 15 seconds. This includes: Items, buffs, Runes and Masteries! If you see him flying (Aka ulting) you need to Q him! Quick. Deny him time from that passive. Consider putting 2 points on Q before level 6.

VS

Yorick

Easy

You his ghosts to bounce your E. He can be annoying with his ult but other then that, you can quickly kill his ghosts.

VS

Zac

Medium

Deny his early game. Go to his jungle and kill him. DO NOT TOWER DIVE! His passive will save him. Kill the blobs or Q him when he comes back up.


Late game beast. CC to stop you. Just try and not get to this stage.

VS

Zed

Easy

Mr Shadows... You are a tank. He can't fully burst you. At least if you build armour. If he ults you when you are low (Focusing the tank is never a good idea), 3157_32.png will save you.



Tips: If he ults you, there is a Fiddle trick that can turn the tables on old Zed. If he's 1v1 on, you can use a very cool trick (Requires fast timing): When he ults you, you ult too, using the ult over his shadow! E-Q him after you land and 3157_32.png right after! When you come out, W him. You can kill him, trust me. With perfect timing, you can pull it off.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Mr Poke will try to poke you down. His E can slow you alot and his W can stop you from ulting. But he has a high cooldown on it so just bait it.

VS

Zilean

Easy

Slows and Bombs over your allies heads is all you have to worry about. His ult can save the ADC in a teamfight so try and Q or E him when you see someone very low (ADC or APC)

VS

Zyra

Hard

Plants! Hate them! Roots? Hate em! Ult that make can you not do anything what so ever? Just don't play Vs Zyra. One of the counters. If you are on blind pick, just don't ult when you know her ult is up.

About me Back to Top

Hello, I'm Armoured and this is my TankSticks guide. I main Jungle and Support and I love to play tanks. Fiddle was one of the 1º champions I played and I've always loved it. I used to main Amumu but now I play what I feel like.


I make videos on Youtube: Armoured Game
And I love to have fun. 


This idea came to me one game. We did not have a tank (Support was Leona but he went for Zilean instead). So I decided I would be the tank. And after that, I've loved this idea on Fiddle. So I decided to share it with you guys.


Hope you enjoy.
