I always start with Meki Pendant (+7m/5sec) which is pretty good, I can spam spells at the beginning without being oom.
After that I buy :
- Fiendish Codex
- Boots
- Mejaj
- Zhonya's Ring

My first spell depends on the enemy, but I often go with dark wind then drain, after that I max drain + fear. I always harrass heroes at start, and keep the pressure on them while last hitting.
Sometimes I get an other lever of dark before fear.

Summoner spells : flash and teleport
Runes : -CD, a little mana et health.

Ps : Crowstorm is awesome :]

I've been playing Fiddlesticks for a while now. He was my first random pick and I really liked his play style. So after I randomed some more times and didn't find a character that I liked as much as Fiddle, I went back to playing him full time.

I usually go boots first, cause Fiddle is so slow. I go for Dark Wind first, then Drain, then Fear. Though, I make sure to get at least one point in fear early on just so I can have a stun.

My favorite tactic is getting behind 2+ champs that are pushing while my teamates are in front and then pop Crow Storm, so they really have nowhere to go. That, when coupled with letting a Dark wind go, stunning one guy, and then draining another at the same time is a devastating tactic.

Right now, my runes are all cooldown and AP, but The AP gain doesn't seem to be worth it. I only have like 15 AP with about half my runes giving me AP. Cooldown is about 8% in runes and some more in masteries. Depending on how that match is going, I'll also get the 25% cooldown item.

I usually go with Flash and Rally for support.

I've been doing very well with fiddle goin:

Meki -> fiendish codex
Sorceror's boots (These come farmed at the same time a s codex
mejaj (If yopu aren't getting enough kills to make this worthwhile then you're using fiddle wrong.... or you're inna pro game)
Zhonya's ring
Archangel's staff - I think that's the name

The shots for my last two games to show how I'm doing (I got my first Quad kill in the second one ) This is a good guide tho, I checked it before trying fiddle the first time. You really do need to solo if you're going to remain effective. Either that or annihalate in your lane.

Fiddlesticks is the only hero I play and I LOVE playing him! He may be hardly used and he isn't close to OP but it feels damn good when you demolish an OP team of Blitz/Ryze/Janna/Taric/etc with that Bag O Twigs. This is what I do.

Runes and Masteries: I go spell penetration in all of the blue slots and the Quintessences. In the yellow slots I go full health runes. In red slots, I do a mix of ability power and health. For masteries I go 9 in offense and 21 in defense like the guide suggests. Fiddlesticks is very squishy and I HATE dying so stacking health and defensive talents is a great way to make sure you can survive.

Items: I always start out with boots of speed then upgrade to boots of swiftness as soon as possible. I then ALWAYS get the Mejai Soulstealer, followed by the Abyssal Scepter. Finally, I TRY to get Lich's Bane for improved chasing, but if I have the two previous items the game will usually end before I can get it.

Abilities: I always max out drain first because if used correctly, it can destroy enemy champions. In between along with crowstorm at level 6, I get two points into fear and 1 point into dark wind for a silence then continue to max out fear and so on and so forth.

Strategy: This guide tells you that Fiddlesticks should solo, and he really is a very good soloer and I have done it and have succeeded, HOWEVER, solo laning is no fun. I wants me some first blood. I lane bot with Sion, who I am in vent with. In most games, we hide in the grass in the beginning and as soon as someone gets close I start draining, he stuns, attacks, exhausts and unless they are a ridiculously OP hero who cannot die such as Taric, they almost always die. The early level ganks only get more fun once we hit level 2 and I get fear and he gets his enrage. We can just consistantly keep killing the champion we're laning against so much so that many times, they leave if they aren't a full premade. Laning with a hero that has great synergy with Fiddle is immensely fun and powerful. Then of course, if you've gotten a lot of early kills, you'll hit level 6 early and have enough for Mejai so Crowstorm and win the game. The amount of QQing after you score a "Quadrakill" will be very entertaining.

To sum up: Even though he is hardly played because he isn't a "LOL IMMA FACEROLL AND WIN" such as all the new champions besides Mundo and Ryze and Jax and all the other OP heroes, Fiddle is still a great champion who is best of all fun and unique and you won't hate yourself for needing to pick one of the previously listed characters. Just to prove I am not talking out of my ass, here is some evidence. Have fun, scarecrows.
