Lore

Here's Fiddlesticks' in client lore:
"Something has awoken in Runeterra. Something ancient. Something terrible. The ageless horror known as Fiddlesticks stalks the edges of mortal society, drawn to areas thick with paranoia where it feeds upon terrorized victims. Wielding a jagged scythe, the haggard, makeshift creature reaps fear itself, shattering the minds of those unlucky enough to survive in its wake. Beware the sounding of the crow, or the whispering of the shape that appears almost human… Fiddlesticks has returned."
Look for more on his Universe page closer to his release!

Updated Skins 

Each of Fiddlesticks' skins have also been updated!

Spectral Fiddlesticks

"A gruesome spectre, rumored to stand eternally watchful over a peculiar book of fables. Brave knights and cruel sorceresses alike have tried in vain to reach the tome, but none have ever returned. Perhaps that lost queendom of old isn't so fictional after all..."

Union Jack Fiddlesticks

"Pip pip. Cheerio."


Bandito Fiddlesticks



Pumpkinhead Fiddlesticks

"Carriage drivers are cautioned to stick to well-traveled highways, especially during the witching season. Strange things can happen on those old, moonlit roads, where no birds sing, and something enormous moves within the fog."

Fiddle Me Timbers

"Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee."

Surprise Party Fiddlesticks

"Everyone told you hiring a clown would be a good idea. "Clowns are great for parties," they said. But now everyone's missing, and the power is out, and something's laughing just down the hall..."

Surprise Party Fiddlesticks has a unique voiceover:


Non-English VO:

Dark Candy Fiddlesticks


"As lights go out across the Winterlands in preparation for Snowdown season, something ancient and terrible rises from the darkest corners of the Poro King's lands. Devoid of thought or purpose, it hunts for holiday revelers as if possessed, cutting down anything that crosses its path."

Risen Fiddlesticks

"Once upon a time in a faraway land, a jealous young emperor invoked profane summoning rites in exchange for power. Yet when the ancient horror Fiddlesticks stepped forth, it did not aid the boy--and in an instant, his empire was utterly destroyed. The fiend was trapped beneath the ruins... until now."


Praetorian Fiddlesticks


Praetorian Fiddlesticks' 6 chromas were also updated:

Champion Skins

Five new skins are now on the PBE!

Furyhorn Cosplay Veigar

1350 RP
"50% fury, 50% horn, 100% evil."

Here's Riot KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Furyhorn Cosplay Veigar:
"Beginning with our 2020 skins, Skins team will be taking a new approach with how we tackle PBE feedback. (We trialed this a bit towards the end of 2019 and found it to be much more efficient.) 
With the influx of players, it’s been difficult to keep up with all of the comments, bugs, and questions and giving a meaningful response to every one of them. Additionally, more feedback means more time to parse and compile it for the dev teams -- especially when we’re going to be making more skins than ever! 
What’s Changing? 
In order to get feedback in front of the devs sooner, we’re going to change how we interact with the PBE posts. We’ll no longer be answering as many questions and comments as possible in each thread, but instead, we’ll be reading all comments and compiling feedback much more quickly. 
That said, we’ll still be responding to comments here and there, we won’t be totally radio silent! 
Why? 
Getting feedback to the devs sooner means that we, as a team, have more time to discuss suggestions and potentially make changes to upcoming skins. 
Know that if the tables were turned, I would show you no mercy! 
Furyhorn Cosplay Veigar is hitting the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Furyhorn Cosplay Veigar is set to be 1350 RP
Furyhorn Cosplay Veigar will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"


Pengu Cosplay Tristana

1350 RP
"Weh!"

Here's Riot Orphyre with a bugs & feedback thread for Pengu Cosplay Tristana:
"Hey everyone!

Pajama Guardian Cosplay Urgot

"A Star Guardian superfan of almost impossible proportions, Urgot worked really hard on this outfit for the fan meet, so please be respectful."


Riot KateyKhaos noted that there would be no official feedback thread for this skin:
"Hello! Similar to the True Damage skins last year, Pajama Guardian Cosplay Urgot will be making a short, short stop on PBE As such, there won't be the normal PBE feedback post for this skin. 
For any bugs, please feel free to toss 'em in this thread, or on Reddit. 
Thanks!"

Worldbreaker Malzahar

1350 RP
"With the world revitalized, there came another wave of titans. Most fearsome of all was Malzahar, the once-great protector of animals. Vengeful over the horrors of the previous extinction, the holy shaman succumbed to anger, and there, in the depths of his rage, his magic turned dark, fueling a fury to end all life-- from the depths of the seas to the peaks of mountains."

Here's Riot Orphyre with a bugs & feedback thread for Worldbreaker Malzahar:
"Hey everyone! 
Worldbreaker Malzahar has returned from the void! He’ll be coming with: 
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation! 
Worldbreaker Malzahar is set to be 1350 RP and is available on PBE! Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have so far down below!

Worldbreaker Maokai

1350 RP
"An immense tree-like golem, Maokai grew from the very roots of the world, charred though they were by the last annihilation. Burdened to revive the world after every destructive cycle, he wanders for all eternity, reseeding the earth with his magical saplings, making way for the renewal of life-- only for it to be undone once more."

Here's Riot Orphyre with a bugs & feedback thread for Worldbreaker Maokai:
"Hey everyone! 
Worldbreaker Maokai has come to sew the seeds of your destruction! He’ll be coming with:

Worldbreaker Sion

1350 RP
"A once towering fortress toppled during the last annihilation, the thing called Sion was given consciousness by Malzahar, and raised up to become the purest titan of death and destruction. Now, imbued with ravenous hatred, he blasts the terrain with every step, hellbent on culling any instance of life."


Here's Riot Orphyre with a bugs & feedback thread for Worldbreaker Sion:

Worldbreaker Sion can smell your fear...He’ll be coming with:
