Fiddlesticks is reborn, with a complete rework not only of his abilities but also of his appearance: he's creepier than ever. With a terrifying voice-over and incredibly disturbing walking animation, the Harbringer of Doom is returning to a Rift with a grim style.
Fiddlesticks' rework will soon hit live following the release of Patch 10.7 on April 1
"Something has awoken in Runeterra. Something ancient. Something terrible. The ageless horror known as Fiddlesticks stalks the edges of mortal society, drawn to areas thick with paranoia where it feeds upon terrorized victims. Wielding a jagged scythe, the haggard, makeshift creature reaps fear itself, shattering the minds of those unlucky enough to survive in its wake. Beware the sounding of the crow, or the whispering of the shape that appears almost human… Fiddlesticks has returned."
