Fiddlesticks Rune Choices - League of Legends
Fiddlesticks Rune Choices

Core Items

Hextech Rocketbelt

3200 Gold

Zhonya's Hourglass

2600 Gold


Hextech Rocketbelt affords Fiddlesticks a bit more mobility, especially when preparing to use your ultimate.

Zhonya's Hourglass is a must as a hard-engage tool, allowing you to dive in with your ultimate, then pop the stasis and survive long enough for the ult to be effective.

Starting Item & Boots

Refillable Potion

150 Gold

Jungle Item

350 Gold

Sorceror's Shoes

1100 Gold

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical Fiddlesticks skill priority is:

R > W > Q > E

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Fiddlesticks in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Flash - League of Legends
Smite - League of Legends


Fiddlesticks is all about passively farming to level 6, so you can unlock your ultimate and begin initiating ganks. Before then, avoid the enemy jungler, and tell your lanes to play safely. 

  • Level 1 - Take W - Bountiful Harvest, which is your primary camp-farming tool.
  • Level 2 - Take E - Reap, an ability that will help with farming.
  • Level 3 - Take another point in W - Bountiful Harvest. You should heal enough from camps that you can stay out longer. 
  • First Back - If you want to go for an early gank to help a lane get ahead, perhaps aim for a Stopwatch. Otherwise boots are a good idea.

Tips & Tricks

  • Thanks to Terrify's passive, if you can initiate a gank or fight without being seen beforehand, you'll trigger a fear on the enemy. You can't immediately fear an enemy again with the skill, but will do additional damage.
  • Bountiful Harvest drains an area, so you can hit multiple targets for increased damage and healing.
  • Bountiful Harvest is less effective against minions. Don't waste it on them.
  • Reap has a sizeable range, but you'll want the enemy at the very centre to benefit from the silence.
  • Crowstorm can be used through walls. Use this to initiate sneak ganks, for example over the wall from tri-bush into lane.
  • Learn to use the Scarecrow Effigy trinket replacement effectively, and take advantage of the move it imitates. It can even mimic a Flash.
  • Placing a Scarecrow Effigy also reveals and disables wards and traps from level 6 onwards. Use it to ensure vision for your team.
