What Can You Look Forward To?
From what we know so far, several passive and targeting abilities are on offer from this rework. These not only help to scare the enemy but also attack people making him one of the best for those looking to divide and conquer the enemy team.
Below are some of the abilities that the new rework possesses:
A Harmless Scarecrow – The trinket that he once had has now been replaced with effigies. These are activated when enemy champions who approach them. This causes a random action such as an attack. When this has been activated, the effigy then destroys itself. The character can hold up to two effigies at once and the higher level that Fiddlesticks is the cooldown length decreases.
Terrify- When out of combat fiddlesticks abilities can damage the enemy leaving them terrified and running away from the enemy. When in active mode, he can terrify the target he can also inflict double damage for those that have already been terrified making him a lethal opponent to have in any team.
Bountiful Harvest– Fiddlesticks drains the soles of nearby enemies. This causes continuous damage and can be used on several enemies at once.
Reap– slows the enemies in a crescent shape in front of him. The enemies that are in the centre are silenced and receive the most damage.
Crowstorm – Channels and then blinking into the target location. This continuously damaged the nearby enemy for several seconds, making this ideal in the long term.
