League of Legends has released an extensive gameplay preview and incredible champion theme for the upcoming Fiddlesticks rework!

Following yesterday’s release of a teaser trailer for the upcoming Fiddlesticks rework, League of Legends has today released a champion theme and gameplay preview to maintain the hype!

First of all, the champion theme for Fiddlesticks, the Ancient Fear, can be found here. It contains a two-and-a-half-minute slideshow of the development of the Fiddlesticks rework including early models for the champion, as well as a breakdown for the creation of his extensive cosmetic collection.

All of this is set to the backing track of Fiddlesticks’ new champion theme, a song that starts off gentle, but slowly grows more creepy and eery as it progresses with an incredible ending.

As for the gameplay preview (found here), we’ve received an in-depth look at the entire Fiddlesticks kit, including each ability being used in different scenarios. The preview also includes the models for every reworked Fiddlesticks skin, which you may be considering buying after a look at his trailer.

The release date for the Fiddlesticks rework is still unknown, but the champion is expected to hit the League of Legends Public Beta Environment in the next few weeks before a full release shortly after!

Here’s a breakdown of the Fiddlesticks reworked kit:

Passive – A Harmless Scarecrow

It was heavily implied that Fiddlesticks would be able to make copies of himself in the teaser trailer and that has been confirmed with the release of the gameplay preview.

By casting his Passive – A Harmless Scarecrow, Fiddlesticks creates exactly that, harmless scarecrows, two to be exact, which suggests that there will be charges available for this ability.

To enemies, this decoy looks exactly like Fiddlesticks so they can be easily fooled and try to engage on what they think is an enemy champion, only for it to be revealed as a fake upon receiving damage.

This ability will undoubtedly take a lot of getting used to if Fiddle is on the enemy team as he’ll no doubt look to fake out opponents at every opportunity to gain an advantage.

Q – Terrify

Nothing’s changed here! Terrify looks to be exactly the same as the old, pre-rework ability.

However, a cooldown has been added so you can’t perma-Terrify a single enemy.

W – Bountiful Harvest

Fiddlesticks’ W – Bountiful Harvest is Drain 2.0.

Instead of simply draining health from a single enemy, he drains health from multiple enemies in the vicinity. While it is unknown whether this means multiple enemy champions or just one (as well as minions/monsters), there’s no doubt this ability just received a large buff to its utility.

E – Reap

Reap is a new ability for Fiddlesticks. He swipes his cane in a cone in front of him, silencing and slowing any enemy at the edge. This will probably be Fiddle’s main damage tool.

R – Crowstorm

Finally, Crowstorm is unchanged, which is great because it is one of the most unique abilities in League of Legends!

Once again, Fiddlesticks channels the ability for a short time before blinking to a position and dealing damage to all enemies in the Area of Effect.
