As a jungle champion, having Smite is mandatory for Fiddlesticks as it can help clear jungle camps and formidable monsters like Dragon and Baron quickly.
Fiddlesticks in Wild Rift should take Bountiful Harvest at level 1, as it is the ability that helps him to sustain and damage jungle camps quickly. This is also useful when ganking lanes, so prioritize leveling this ability first. Then, take Terrify as the second ability because its crowd control is essential, especially when ganking and clearing jungle camps. The third ability to take is the Reap, which is also essential when team fighting and ganking, leaving enemies vulnerable to attacks when this ability silences them. Last but certainly not least, Crowstorm. This ability is his trump card when team fighting; his ultimate can surprise enemies around dark areas of the map. Fiddlesticks should also prioritize leveling their ultimate up as much as possible.

Innate Passive | A Harmless Scarecrow
Fiddlesticks’ passive is a great way to catch enemies off guard. It is a very powerful ability that gives him a lot of utility and versatility, as it allows him to disguise himself as an effigy, which can be used for various purposes. Additionally, Fiddlesticks can use A Harmless Scarecrow for ganking, team fighting, warding, and objective control.
Q | Terrify
Terrify is also incredibly useful for ganking and team fighting, as it can disable enemies and make them vulnerable from being in fear. It is also a great way to initiate team fights, as Fiddlesticks can simply fear the enemy team, and then his team can follow up with damage, leading to a significant advantage.
W | Bountiful Harvest
Bountiful Harvest is Fiddlesticks’ bread and butter as a jungler, because it allows him to deal damage, heal himself, and sustain himself in the jungle while also being a great way to clear jungle camps quickly. It is an AoE damage field around Fiddlesticks, sucking the life force out of everyone in the circular range. Moreover, Fiddlesticks can combine Terrify and Bountiful Harvest for maximum damage when doing a gank.
E | Reap
Fiddlesticks uses his scythe to slash forward, damaging and silencing enemies that are hit. This ability enables Fiddlesticks to gank even easier, as he can silence any escape or stun ability an enemy might cast. It can ultimately lead to Fiddlesticks finishing off enemies swiftly.
R | Crowstorm
Fiddlesticks unleashes a murder of crows to deal devastating damage per second around Fiddlesticks. Pair Crowstorm with Terrify and Bountiful Harvest for maximum effectiveness, as enemies cannot react or escape after being terrified, exposing them to Fiddlesticks’ ultimate ability. This combo is very essential for Fiddlesticks, and this very combo is what makes Fiddlesticks strong in the jungle.
Fiddlesticks Early Game Guide
With Fiddlesticks, you can either focus on clearing your jungle camps first or try to invade with his Bountiful Harvest, as it can deal a lot of damage while sustaining himself from damage. Then, try to look for ganks with his Terrify and Reap as soon as possible. Also, you should gank more when you acquire his ultimate, as it is very effective to use when ganking.
