Best Fizz Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends

Fizz is one of the oldest League of Legends champions. These are the best Fizz build, runes, spells, items League of Legends can offer him, and his greatest counters designed by Riot Games.

Best Fizz Build

When it comes to Fizz, he must use optimal runes, and ability order, for early game damage, to be able to snowball the game in his favor.

Best Fizz Runes

When it comes to assassins of any type, high damage is their friend. In Fizz’s case, Electrocute is the best possible Keystone option, as you can easily proc it with your abilities, and then make an escape.

Best Rune Path



Best Keystone


Best Slot 1 (Rune)

Sudden Impact


Best Slot 2 (Rune)

Eyeball Collection

Coup de Grace

Best Slot 3 (Rune)

Ravenous Hunter

Fizz’s abilities consist of two dashes, and not using the Sudden Impact rune is pure foolishness. On the other hand, Eyeball Collection is a damage stacking ability as well, and Ravenous Hunter gives far too much healing with his single-target abilities to be ignored.

In the secondary runes, the Precision Tree is picked due to Triumph, as it gives Fizz just enough health to make his escape after a kill, with every enemy champion chasing him afterward.

The Coup de Grace is the second-best rune for assassins in this Rune Tree, and always useful when roaming, to clean up after a skirmish.

Best Fizz Rune Shards

The first two Rune Shards Fizz must pick, regardless of the enemy team, are the Adaptive Force runes. As with everything this champion does, high damage is the key, and for an AP champion, they give too much damage to be ignored.

Best Rune Shards



+9 Adaptive Force

+8 Magic Resist

The final Rune Shard is a defensive one and is usually Magic Resist. Magic Resist keeps you healthier against poke, allowing you to have better early game trades.

Into a melee champion, though, the Armor rune is better, as they deal physical damage.

Best Fizz Spells

When it comes to Summoner Spells, there are only a few champions who don’t use Flash in League of Legends, and have that as an optimal choice, such as Shaco or Tryndamere. In the case of Fizz, Flash is a must-have, no matter how much escape potential he has, as Flash is, without a doubt, the best Summoner Spell in the game, overall.

Ignite, on the other hand, is the usual pick for champions that need to deal bonus damage to secure early game kills, which is the definition of Fizz.


Best Fizz Abilities Order

As an assassin, whose abilities mostly deal single-target damage, the first Ability to max on Fizz is his E - Playful Trickster, ability. It’s his main form of waveclear, and allows you to do so safely. You will be helped in this by his passive ability, as minion block slows enemies hit on the head with it, and allies too!


After that, comes the W - Seastone Trident, which is incredibly easy to proc onto enemies. His Urchin Strike is the last one to be leveled in his skill order, as its use lies in using it creatively, as an offensive or defensive dash, more than a damage dealer the first two are.

Of course, his ultimate, to be able to deal magic damage, a knock-up, and slow enemies hit, must be leveled at levels 6, 11, and 18.

Best Fizz Items

As is the case with his Runes, Fizz’s items are all geared towards high-burst damage, and allowing him to kill his enemies more easily, as opposed to helping him survive.

Best Starter Fizz Items

Fizz is best served by a Corrupting Potion as his first item. It allows him to sustain in lane longer, and upon his first back, the synergy with the Dark Seal you buy is not to be ignored.

First Item

Corrupting Potion

Best Mid Game Fizz Items

In the mid-game, if you’ve played the laning phase correctly, your core build should be ready. It consists of a non-negotiable Luden’s Tempest as a Mythic Item, for the burst damage, Boots of Lucidity, for the cooldown reduction, and Zhnoya’s Hourglass for survivability.

First Item

Second Item

Third Item

Luden’s Tempest

Ionian Boots of Lucidity

Zhnoya’s Hourglass

The only alternative is Sorceror’s Shoes. However, those are for games when you are certain they are won.


Best Final Late Game Fizz Items

Depending on the team you’re facing, Fizz can either be a late-game nightmare, or a Yordle nuisance. His late-game build, in both cases, is still focused on doing as much damage as possible.

First Item

Second Item

Third Item

Fourth Item

Fifth Item

Sixth Item

Luden’s Tempest

Ionian Boots of Lucidity

Zhnoya’s Hourglass

Lich Bane

Rabbadon’s Deathcap

Void Staff

The Lich bane is an item that synergizes well with Fizz’s dashes, allowing him to proc it upon using them and deal massive amounts of damage immediately, while Rabbadon’s Deathcap, though expensive, is the best damage-stacking item in the game. And Void Staff is officially involved in his build permanently these days.

Strongest Champions Against Fizz

When it comes to Fizz’s counters, those would be the champions that win early game trades, such as LeBlanc and Akshan, or turn his dashes into liabilities, the way Vex does.

Weakest Champions Against Fizz

Fizz excels against targets that have little to no escape potential, are squishy, and cannot itemize against him. Those would, of course, be mid-lane mages with low mobility, or League of Legends champions such as Yone, with weak early game power.


Win Rate %








Unfortunately for Fizz, the best champions to play Fizz mid into and deal a killing blow, are the ones whose pick rate is falling off heavily in the mid lane, and are either not being played at all, or relegated to the bot lane.
