Tips

Playing As Fiora Fiora
  • Thanks to Duelist's Dance Duelist's Dance, Fiora excels at quick trades. Use the movement speed boost from striking a Vital Vital to escape unscathed or set up for the next one.
  • Grand Challenge Grand Challenge allows Fiora to take down even the most durable opponents and then recover if successful, so do not hesitate to attack the enemy's front line.
Playing Against Fiora Fiora
  • Duelist's Dance Duelist's Dance shows you where Fiora will try to attack from, so be ready to punish her when she tries.
  • Be careful when casting immobilizing disables on Fiora. If her Riposte Riposte is available, she can turn their power against you.

Tricks

Ability Usage
Rune Usage
Item Usage
  • Fiora's most common build path is to stack pure AD, lifesteal, and cooldown reduction.
    • Lifesteal items are stacked on Fiora because she can already shred through tanky enemies with her passive. They also give more bonus AD than armor penetration items, which actually helps her deal more true damage. By building loads of lifesteal, Fiora gains more survivability, because enemies will have a harder time damaging Fiora because she can just sustain everything back. It also makes her even more difficult to outduel, and she is already a dueling monster.
    • Cooldown reduction is also needed because Fiora is quite reliant on her abilities to do damage and reposition herself.
      • The Black Cleaver The Black Cleaver is a common item to buy on Fiora. It gives her 20% cooldown reduction, a decent amount of AD, HP, and has a passive that gives her even more movement speed, which helps her with kiting and sticking to enemies. Don't be fooled thinking that the armor shred is useless just because Fiora deals true damage. The majority of Fiora's damage is still physical, especially early in the game where she doesn't have a lot of bonus AD to make her true damage very relevant. Another perk is that The Black Cleaver is cheaper than Trinity Force.
  • Ravenous Hydra Ravenous Hydra is a core item for Fiora. It gives her lifesteal and a lot of bonus AD. But more importantly, it gives her waveclear, which is incredibly important since one of the main weakness of Fiora's kit is lacking natural waveclear. Due to this reason, this item is often rushed, with Tiamat Tiamat being one of Fiora's most common first buys.
  • Fiora's Lunge Lunge applies on-hit effects, meaning that items such as Tiamat Tiamat's Cleave, Blade of the Ruined King Blade of the Ruined King, Sheen Sheen's Spellblade all proc.
  • While almost never a good buy, Hextech Gunblade Hextech Gunblade heals off of Duelist's Dance Duelist's Dance's damage.
  • If building AD, any item that offers a mix of attack damage, lifesteal, and cooldown reduction is good for Fiora.
    • A prime example is Death's Dance Death's Dance. The passive will help Fiora survive the large bursts of damage that she will most likely attract when Riposte Riposte is on cooldown.
    • While Trinity Force Trinity Force is not commonly built, Fiora can make good use of all of its stats. Spellblade procs will almost always land with Lunge Lunge, the movement speed on hit helps her position to strike Vitals Vitals, and cooldown reduction is a welcome addition to her long cooldowns. The attack speed also helps her win fights when she might not otherwise be able to safely break Vitals Vitals.
  • If building tank Fiora, Titanic Hydra Titanic Hydra is a good alternative to Ravenous Hydra. However, keep in mind that Titanic Hydra Titanic Hydra does NOT grant Attack Damage based on health, and so Duelist's Dance Duelist's Dance will gain no benefit.
Countering
  • Remember that Fiora is one of the few champions who can be built into multiple item paths. Itemize accordingly in order to counter her.
    • Her most common build path, however, is to stack items with lifesteal and cooldown reduction, with some tankyness. (see above for the reasons why)
      • With that in mind, building Grievous Wounds items can help you heavily against Fiora. As an ADC, it is recommended to buy Mortal Reminder Mortal Reminder if you are facing Fiora late game. Morellonomicon Morellonomicon is also a core item on many mages, that offer Grievous Wounds if she is under 35% HP. There is also Thornmail for tanks (see below for more information).
  • Thornmail Thornmail is once again a decent item to buy against Fiora. Bramble Vest Bramble Vest cripples Fiora early because she is sustain reliant and auto reliant, so the Grievous Wounds passive actually allows you to have a chance against her. In the long run, however, Fiora is able to overcome this item, with massive amounts of lifesteal and armor shred. Thornmail will not help you against Fiora late game in a 1x1 situation, but it can help reducing her sustain during teamfights if she is forced to hit you.
  • Building some armor in the early game is actually useful against Fiora. She will not have enough true damage to shred you, as she is item reliant. In the long run, Fiora is able to shred through any enemy regardless of how tanky they are, but building tanky is still necessary for survivability purposes.
  • Bladework Bladework's second strike is always considered a critical strike. Buying a Randuin's Omen item Randuin's Omen can cripple Bladework Bladework's second strike, though it is usually an inefficient use of gold for this purpose.
  • Fiora Fiora is always considered as a powerful late game hypercarry. Shutting her down early can cripple her apart since she has a weak early game.
  • It is difficult to itemize properly against Fiora if she builds Attack Damage, because of Duelist's Dance Duelist's Dance's damage. Try to stop her from snowballing out of control, or position intelligently so she cannot attack your Vitals Vitals.
  • Avoid using your high damage abilities like Death Mark Death Mark or hard CC abilities like Counter Strike Counter Strike when Riposte Riposte is available. It blocks EVERYTHING; for example, if Fiora Fiora parries Chum the Waters Chum the Waters, the fish will drop to the ground and will not attach itself to her if she walks over it. Likewise, Death Mark Death Mark will not be applied, and even abilities like Blade's End Blade's End will consume the stacks, but deal no damage.
  • Riposte Riposte has a long cooldown, especially at early ranks - after she uses it, punish her while she can't parry.
  • There are actually some champions which have a chance of outdueling Fiora late game.
    • An example is Master Yi Master Yi which just like Fiora, deals massive amounts of sustained true damage, can itemize for lifesteal, and has nothing notable that can be blocked by Riposte. He is also immune to attack speed slows with his ult activated, so Riposte is arguably useless against him.
    • Jax Jax has a chance to outduel Fiora, but it requires wise use of Counter Strike Counter Strike. If she manages to block the stun with Riposte, Fiora will win. Remember that Counter Strike allows Jax to block vitals.
