Tome or machete+wards. Depends on who I'm against. If I plan on counterjungling or rushing a spirit item, then I do machete. Spellvamp + AP + Smite CDR? Pretty nice.
Alternatively, if I'm playing against a pretty good team that I'll need to shut down early, tome is definitely great. Those champs would be Nasus, Hecarim, Veigar, Akali, Morde, Teemo, etc etc. Champs that become exponentially harder to gank as the game goes on. --- Now these points of data make a beautiful line, and we're out of beta we're releasing on time! So I'm glad I got burned, think of all the things we learned!
Fiddle sticks win rate is 53%. Fiddlesticks that built the AP spirit stone item have 55% winrate.
Out of the top 5 items for fiddle sticks, only one builds from tome and that's kage's lucky pick, which has 46% win rate on him.
Stop not going machette on fiddle plz. It's stupid. --- Happyscrub's league of legends rank is higher than 95% gamefaqs posters. This is why gamefaqs jealous of him. That's why they troll him. So sad, So bad, so mad.
