League of Legends Fizz Build Guide

Here is a post about Fizz champion from League of Legends. You will find brief information with tips and tips on how to play Fizz. Read our Fizz build and cheat sheet. In our League of Legends builds you will see the most popular and universal variation of any build.

The Tidal Trickster Fizz is one of the most popular midders in League of Legends for now. His main role is an assassin and he can stand on any solo lane. Of course, his primal position is a mid lane, but you can often see Fizz on top or even in the jungle. Fizz is determined as a moderate difficulty champion and it is for a reason. You need to learn how to use your abilities in the right sequence to one-shot enemies and find an appropriate moment to use the ultimate to get the most advantage from the situation.

As for the passive skill. It is called Nimble Fighter and it allows Fizz to move through units and take a flat amount of reduced damage from all sources. That can be handy in many situations.

Fizz Rune Set

There is one dominant rune set for Fizz that is stronger than any other combination. It is domination with precision. You can see this rune set below. It gives Fizz a lot of damage thanks to lethality and mage penetration. In advance, you will gain permanent health regen if you manage to achieve takedowns. And precision runes will enhance the bonuses with mana regeneration and adaptive damage.

Fizz Runes Set

The other rune set is focused on precision runes and takes dominant runes as a supportive mean. But it is not very popular and effective as well. CFizz is an assassin after all.

Summoner Spells

Recommended Setup





Flash is a standard spell that almost every champion takes. It helps you to escape or vice verse gets closer to the target to kill it. As for the other spells. The best option for Fizz is to take Ignite that will ensure the kill (if you don’t want to rush in to hit the last health points you use Ignite and stay on the safe side while the enemy dies). But if you play in a party with someone on the other lane you can discuss your actions in advance to gank on 6th level. At that situation, Teleport will come handy. It will give Fizz more access to the map. He can engage or provoke enemy’s early back, spilt push and come just before the teamfight. Everything is possible with a teleport.
