FAQs About Fiddlesticks

My targets keep running out of my Ult. What can I do with my Fid build to stop them?

After you've taken such care to spring a trap and jump into the enemy team with your Ult, they all scatter in different directions. At best, you chase one down. It's the bane of every Fid's existence. The best way to overcome this is to slow your enemies with your abilities. Grab Rylai's Crystal Scepter in your Fiddlesticks build. It will keep enemies in range of all of your abilities for longer. Since two of Fid's abilities hit all targets in range, this is one of the best items to synergize with his kit.

Can Fiddlesticks be a good support?

Fiddlesticks can make a good support. He has some of the best vision control in the game with his Scarecrow Effigies. Adding a support vision trinket to your Fiddlesticks build means that he can provide 2-3x the vision control of a normal champion. Beyond that, his targeted fear ability is an excellent ability to protect his carry. If you play Fiddlesticks support, ward often, stay close to your best carry in teamfights, and ambush if you are able.

What are Fiddlesticks' greatest strengths and weaknesses?

Fiddlesticks' greatest strength is his ability to cause massive AoE damage and fear simultaneously. Both his Ult and his E are great abilities to ambush with. Fiddlesticks' greatest weakness is that his ambush abilities rely on him being unseen and able to hit his enemies. If the enemy team doesn't group-up close enough to him or has vision of him and he doesn't know it, he will be a lot less effective. Without his fear when he Ults, he's an easy target and may die quickly. Use a Scarecrow to ensure the enemy doesn't have vision of you before you ambush them.
