What makes Fiddlesticks a bad mid laner?

I'm just curious as to why no one plays him as a mid champion. It seems to me that he's got quite a bit of harass, and that he can easily win most fight of trading blows. He's also relatively hard to gank.

Drain is only damage spell and has a high mana cost.

Poor AA.

He's slow.

His AoE silence does damage, so does his ult, but I guess you were excluding that.

Cuz people are too stupid to max Dark Wind before Drain in lane.

His auto-attack animation is sickening.... Really, it's just bad for last hitting.

Also, his ult is really utilized to its strongest extent when coming out of the bushes or from behind a wall, can't really do that very easily straight from lane.

That's coming from someone who hasn't actually tried it though so I can't say it's from experience, this is just why I don't personally want to try it.

not really a bad mid laner, but his kit definately makes him stronger as a ganking jungler....

this. 1000 times this. If you go mid you will get outfarmed. You have to constantly gank to get kills to keep up gold wise.

He can't farm.

if he gets early bluebuff (god... leesin giving him lvl 2-4 bluebuff is a *****) he can be a threat but really he gets shut down by so many mid laners who have a brain.


That being said... his mass CC and late game dmg (if at all fed) are ridiculously annoying. QSS for everyone!!

I miss the old days of 10 bounce darkwinds, it was so fun to max and watch the crow bounce back and forth really fast and take the champ's health down in such a satisfactory matter. Those were my favorite first bloods. he used to be my main, I mid laned him and I never lost, but once he got changed, it was drain or nothing, darkwind is merely a shell of its former glory.
