Fiddletricks

boo

Hello! Hi! I’m glad that I have internet connection yet again. This week was pure hell, honestly. But here I am with some Fiddletricks and facts that might just get you to a Gold rank in League of Legends. I played my promos and end up 8W 2L, Gold IV. I am a Goldenstick now! Do I wanna try for Platinum? Maybe. Anyways…

If you issue a dance command, Fiddlesticks will freeze in place while doing his jump move, at some point. Apart from impressing everyone for five seconds, this is as useful as laning along with a Vayne ADC.

Despite being “point and click”, your Fear spell can be dodged if the target gets out of range, just as your start your casting animation. Sound will still occur, but the target will be unaffected. [Please, fix this!]

Using the Fear spell on a Master Yi who uses his ultimate might be a bit tricky. Depending on how much fed and power- farmed he is, you either wish to fear him away from your team or position in a way where you can push him into a wall. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, using Fear on Master Yi when he uses his ultimate makes him run away really fast in a direction, opposite to your position. If Yi hits a wall, he will either try to go around it or will bump and be stuck at it. Most commonly, the second scenario occurs. YOU CAN USE THIS KNOWLEDGE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE IF THE BASTARD IS IN YOUR BASE, NEAR THE FOUNTAIN SPAWN POINT! JUST FEAR HIM INTO THE LASER TURRET THERE AND MELT HIS ASS!

Buy Knight’s Vow or Abyssal Mask to deal with fed opponents. These tank items will give you good survival chances, mainly against assassins. Always ban Talon!

The true range of your ultimate is also determined by the range of your Flash summoner spell and not a lot of people are aware of that.

When using sweeping lenses to clear wards, be aware that you won’t be revealed until you start hitting the target ward. Use this as an advantage to pull off some sneaky crow storms.

That’s all I have to say for now! That’s all you get for no money and no new Fiddlesticks shard to get me that sweet mastery level seven!

Now go feed the bot lane with no style whatsoever!

On the dating simulator game called “A support in League of Legends”, when picking the character Fiddlesticks, you already start with negative 100 points. For each good ultimate execution, add plus 1 points. Add half a point for a good crow bounce. Romantic paths are pretty much impossible and just getting to the zero point score is a chore big enough, but it will save you from being reported by your team and getting a two week unpaid trip to Hawaii.

But watch out for actions that will add additional negative points! Like using “E” on the minion wave, getting caught early by a crowd control effects or not building a “Redemption” for your team as fast as possible! If you can’t save your ADC from a Blitzcrank who pulls them under the enemy turret, they’ll run it down mid for sure! That’s pretty much an instant Game Over! If you leave the bot lane to roam, they will open a grand buffet all- you – can -eat before you manage to even get to the mid lane! Free food usually tastes awful, honestly!

I am still waiting for a Fiddlesticks champion shard…

Rune2

I was pretty skeptical about Aftershock, but it turned out to be pretty good. If anything, not a lot of people expect you to suddenly turn into the toughest nut to crack in the universe. You still do a pretty good damage and can poke down the enemy bot lane early, even without the magical squirrel. Stopwatch is a really good rune, which I feel is a must, as it could really give you the opportunity to turn around many sticky situations.

Rune1

This is the “Fun Build” Fiddlesticks. You do it when you play with friends or when on a huge lose streak. That way you can add more defeats to your match history and brag about it on the internet at some stupid internet forum. Spend ten minutes saving gold for Twin Shadows and then enjoy your two seconds of fun when you cast it and spray the enemy with icy lasers. Even when you lower the item’s cooldown with runes and add to its efficiency with the Glacial Augment, it still feels pretty useless, IN MOST SITUATIONS! Maybe it could have been good if the ghosts left a speed buff trail or something. I don’t know.

Rune3

This is the best Fiddlesticks rune page setup. You get cheaper items, free clock, free RG item, free ward, true damage and lower item CDR. You can chase people down and fear them, you can dive under enemy turrets with an early hourglass and not get a follow up by your team. It’s a rune page that provides you with lots of utility. Not having the Resolve tree does sucks, but I think that at the cost of some tank stats., being able to utilize items to catch people and scale faster pays off much better.

Ghost poro is good. You can use to to scout for early bot side crab enthusiasts and to prevent enemy ganks. Given how much time it takes for the warding items to be completed and how limited trinkets are, this is much better than the short living Zombie wards or the free 30 AP eyeball collection that… I mean, come on! 30 AP? And you need to stack it! No…

Come play with me on EUNE, “LR19 FlareEX”!!!

The Weekly Fields of Spookiness

When I started playing League of Legends, I remember that my first ever champion that I picked was Nautilus. I did fairly well with him in the game, despite not knowing how and what should I be actually doing overall. Then, in the next game I picked Fiddlesticks, as he looked like an interesting champion. I am also a sucker for crowd control abilities, ever since DOTA back in Warcraft III. However, I did not know that certain champions require ability power to work, so I end up thinking that Fiddlesticks is the worst champion ever…

Then came a time when lots of mobile assassins came out and they started being a problem on a mode that I really enjoyed – Dominion! I saw then from a Fiddlesticks player that you can ambush other players, regardless of how much they are ahead or good at the game and obliterate them with a perfectly timed ult. Truly, this scarecrow can be an ideal assassin, as long as you are on the right place at the right time.

Then, people started playing him support, mainly because Corki was really good ADC on bot lane, at the time. I was curious and tried him a few times, but another champion had my attention back then, that being Lulu. I just liked double killing the enemy bot lane constantly, since Lulu was pretty strong early on. That’s it really. My whole experience as a support main player revolves around the idea of just running around the map and murdering people. My warding system changed from one that could prevent me and my ADC from ganks to one where I would actively ward the enemy jungle and seek opportunities to go and murder people who casually walk through it carefree, thinking that they are in their safety bubble.

A fresh start is always a good thing. Perhaps I’ve been too harsh in the past on the game, but if anything, I would blame life itself that has been harsh on me. After spending almost 7 years on this game, I feel like I should do something with it. Like get a high mastery score or something. I’m not sure yet, but I’ll do my best! No more bad attitude, no more complains about Master Yi doing over 1000 true damage with few auto atatcks! I will still be upset about Renekton being the destroyer of fun in the top lane. I’m sad that Banner will be removed for a time being. I had a fun week where I sent promoted minion as a Fiddlesticks support to a Singed lane. The minion actually killed Singed as he was fighting my Maokai ally. I’ve never seen something like that before. I feel like that Singed has been gutted quite a lot and he struggles enough against lots of champions, especially those who have range or are of crocodile origin.

What you are going to hear from people who are to lane alongside with Fiddlesticks support is – Don’t use E in lane.No! Use E in lane! Having pressure on the enemy duo bot and them being low on HP could usually turn ganks from the enemy jungler into spicy triple kill for your ADC or… you. Either way, Fiddlesticks scales pretty good, not really as much with AP as with utility items and a bit of magic penetration. A free clock is good because you can dive any turret after the 8 minute mark. Future market is the best rune in the game. Who the hell needs sugary treats or minion acid flasks, when every item in the game will be as cheap as 100 to 250 gold less. I don’t know. Usually, on my first back, I get upgraded support item and a boot. I can’t afford the boot in this case without the rune.

Hell, I don’t know if I’ll be able to afford dinner tonight…

Thank for reading!

League of mastering – Taric

emerald taric best skin

Once again,I find myself on the support train.When I choosed Taric as my next support to master,I was filled with doubts and I was expecting to be pretty much dissapointed in the matches where I have to play him.After all the changes they did to his abilities,I became really sceptical towards him,to the point where I stopped playing him.I used to play a lot of Taric in Season 2,if not pretty much only him.He was that one champion that actually drove me to play and enjoy the supporting role.He was really strong back then,top tier,support pick,the target of jokes involving homosexuality and humor from “olden'” times.[Like that changed over the year/irony/]

It turned out that he is still fine.Still good enough.What you need is to just give him some time,so you can figure out how to apply his kit in various situation.

…so then you just walk towards people and they start to run away from you,just like in the good ol’ times!

Armor marks/AD marks,they are all fine and good.Pen. doesn’t seem all that attractive.Seals are whatever,even tho’ Armor is pretty much a no-brainer.MR glyphs are pretty much the best,if not the only good option for him.CDR glyphs seem like a waste.QUINTS CAN BE ANYTHING!Armor for better passive or “W”?HP for your “Q”?MS for catching up to people and stun them?Even GP/5 are good if you just want to play passive or if you are learning him/the support role as a whole.

Go deep in the defense tree.Try to get as much defensive stats as you can!The utility tree is as good as investing into MS,CDR on summoners and better pots.Investing into the right masteries is pretty important for a Taric,as they will reward both your champ’s stats and abilities as well.[No,shit!]THEY ARE IMPORTANT FOR LANE TOO!

…and then you become a walking buffer.Good job!Your team won’t notice or care!They will care only about your stun.Don’t start heal.Carries love to die lvl 1,when they try to win trades they can’t early or just get cuaght in the enemy “we got lvl 2 before you,now die”.One point in E is good enough.Maxing Q gives you lots of good sustain.Get hp to make it better.W makes you quite tanky and those around you.Get some armor and make it even better.Revive the old aegis!R is a free baron buff.Use W to make tanks useless.There.You can now play Taric…

…oh?Really?Ok…

That useless “sheen” passive?/it scales with armor!neat!/It’s good only for jungle Taric?That’s true…

You can win trades bot lane by using the passive to kill the enemy carry.Time your stun well!Chain your abilities well and AA to proc that passive.It also reduces their cooldowns.You can do lots of damage and disruption,as long as you make good chains.That’s the secret to a good Taric.

Avoid getting caught.MS helps a lot.Build tanky,get items with auras.RG is good for your E and lack of engage.Frozen Heart is a must.Locket is pretty much like old aegis combined with your passive.I tried curcible and it was pretty good too.I don’t think Zeke is that good.Stacking lots of armor and hp might be effective,but it’s costly!Don’t give up if lane goes back!Roam mid,punish overxtending enemy laners and junglers!

gemskull done!

THIS IS A GOOD STARTING SUPPORT FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO LEARN!THIS IS A GOOD SUPPORT FOR PRETTY MUCH ANY COMPOSITION!GET BARON,PRESS R,WIN ALL THE TEAMFIGHTS!

==========================///

Zzzzzzrthportal is something I would not build on Taric.I don’t think I wanna build it on anyone as a whole…ever again…yeah.

League of mastering – Soraka

raka the best

Today we master another support.Tomorrow – probably the rest of them!Such is the fate of a person who fills in for a position…

This lady here tho,playing her is not an easy task!Times have changed and the community of our “beloved” MOBA has so as well.Their love or complete ignoration for Soraka has turned into a burning hatred!Allies will hate you and call you useless,no matter how many of them you heal or how many enemies you’ve silenced!The enemy team will hunt you down for ruining their “ebin” plays and glorious teamfights!Can you take it?Can you take on the challenges of playing Soraka?

Marks are whatever.Magic pen/Armor/AD flat…They all go fine.I like armor.But I never use it.I do AD instead.But it’s fine.Get some HP/lvl or armor seals with the usual MR/CDR flat glyphs.Quints are whatever![Get some GP5 or Armor.AP/AD if you feel cocky!Don’t do MS quints!Why…?

Soraka is like a porcelain vase.If the enemy gets their hands on you,it’s most likely over…This is why COIN is a great core item on her.[The spellthief is not that good.Doesn’t change too much in lane phase and it’s harder to control fights or escape from bad situations,unlike with the coin!]What about the others?Like Janna,the porcelain vase with propellers or Nami,the vase that keeps dripping slippery goo all over?Even Zyra is a scary vase with a snake inside!Soraka is not like them.You have to play it carefully.That’s pretty much most of your game.The other being ulting in the right time and healing the right targets.Placing silence circle is easier than it seems!

Masteries are standart!You don’t need any points in offensive…Crucible is another amazing core item.New Arden is kinda fine,but not as amazing as I thought it would be.Still a really good item choice.CDR boots are the best.Mobility are overkill.Your passive,along with masteries and coin are good enough!Aim to use that ult more often!GET CDR MAN!Get Banshee or Hourglass and hope for the best!GA is not a good idea,I tried so and I regred it!Banner is a fun item to get and use.Pretty useful if ahead!Get locket for some extra protection!FROZEN HEART SUCKS ON SORAKA!

Lane phase is a struggle!Teamfights are a breeze!Heal people,make plays,try to survive as the enemy team hunts you down like a wild animal.I FREAKIN’ LOVE SORAKA!

Unicorn waifu done!
