League of Legends S12: Fizz Mid Build Guide

From runes to items, gameplay tips amd more, we've put together a guide to help you master playing Fizz in the midlane in League of Legends.

Be mindful that there are several ways to build and play a champion, and you'll need to be adaptable as the game and the enemy team progress.

That said, this guide is a good starting point to helping you get to grips with the champion and making an impact in your games.


Fizz Rune Choices - League of Legends
Fizz Rune Choices

Core Items

Luden's Tempest

3200 Gold

Zhonya's Hourglass

2600 Gold


Luden's Tempest is a must-have item on Fizz, for mobility, burst, and magic penetration. 

Zhonya's Hourglass is an essential survivability tool, and allows Fizz a moment's delay to enter or exit a fight as he pleases.

Other good items include Lich Bane for great synergy with Fizz's kit, and Rabadon's Deathcap for sheer damage potential.

Starting Item & Boots

Corrupting Potion

500 Gold

Ionian Boots of Lucidity

950 Gold

Skill Order

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

R > E > W > Q

Summoner Spells

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

Flash - League of Legends
Ignite - League of Legends


Fizz takes some time to get going in lane, but once he hits his powerspike he is a deadly assassin. A highly mobile champ thanks to Playful / Trickster, Fizz should be able to hold the lane pretty easily, giving your team time to grow. 

  • Level 1 - Take E - Playful / Trickster, allowing you to avoid early trades and clear minion waves pretty quickly.
  • Level 2 - W - Seastone Trident, for increased damage. Use it to last hit minions for a mana refund and cooldown reduction.
  • First Back - Aim for a Last Chapter, so that when you level up you benefit from the mana restore passive. This allows you to stay in lane longer.

Tips & Tricks

  • Seastone Trident's cooldown is reduced massively if you kill the target with it. Use this on minions to land a surprise an enemy champion with the reset.
  • Playful / Trickster can be used to hop over walls, and is an essential escape tool. You can even jump a wall with the first activation, and then return with the second - great for getting a chasing opponent to waste a Flash. 
  • The further Churn the Waters travels, the more damage it deals, the greater the slow, and the further the knockback. Use it from hidden positions to gain the upper hand. 
  • You can use Flash during Playful / Trickster's return phase to further the distance travelled.
