The question is pretty straightforward. Is Lich Bane still a viable item for Fizz. It's 99% of the times the first item I buy and I keep it until the end. It is a good item to start your build with and it still remains a good item on late game or should I sell it and buy something else?

  • Yes, absoloutely

  • Thanks for the reassurance, even though the reasons still have me worried

  • Yeah but doesn't it scales off late game? Maybe it's more worth it to buy DFG?

  • I dont see why you wouldnt get both. Deathcap, Boots, Lichbane, DFG, Zhonyas, Void Staff

I wouldn't say it's a good item... It's crucial.

Lichbane has basically everything that fizz needs: AP, Mana, Movementspeed and the Best Passive an Item could ever have for fizz: On-Hit Bonus Magic damage w that scales with AP and that gets applied instantly with your Q.

There is no Item for fizz that comes even close to this one. You should rush a Sheen almost all the time as a core Item on him. Sometimes even before boots of speed. The Active and Passive stats are just too good and they can help you snowball early.

  • That's the explanation I was looking for.

  • If I remember correctly, the sheen MIGHT get procced by Fizz's Q. I believe that the tooltip states that literally. Jul 22 '14 at 15:01
  • @ValentinGrégoire It does get applied intstantly if it's off-cooldown

  • So I don't have to auto attack the enemy after I Q+W him?

    @zETO no you don't have to. But you could use W 1.5 seconds after you hit him with Q in early levels to get an additional sheen proc (although it's very situational).
