Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi, Samoonah here, and this is my first guide. I've been playing Fiora a lot ever since I reached level 20 or so. And because I have played her so much, experimented with a lot of items, and got some advices from better players, I think i have a complete picture of how Fiora should be played. I'm not really good with writing things, but I'll try to help with everything as much as I can. So here goes nothing ^^'
+ She's french
+ She has a lot of burst damage
+ Not really mana hungry
+ Ultimate can hit more than 1 champion
- Can get killed if the ultimate isn't used properly
- Does not have a really good way to escape
- Get focused really hard when fed
Masteries usually depends on the play style of the player himself/herself. But this is how I like to play Fiora and is really working well with me.
Greater Mark of Lethality
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Greater Quintessence of Life Steal
because you're most likely going to face a tanky top champion with lots of health and armor
you need to stay alive if you are getting harassed a lot by an AD bruiser or getting ganked from their jungler.
once again, you need to stay alive if you are facing an AP top laner or get ganked by their AP jungler or their mid laner.
because you're Fiora
it helps with Fiora's passive
Skills Tips and Tricks
This will let you jump on opponents dealing some physical damage. Use this skill cleverly. NEVER USE THIS SKILL TWICE IN A ROW WITHOUT ANY AUTO ATTACK IN BETWEEN. What I mean is don't Q > Q. What you should do is Q > auto attack > Q auto attack. This will give you the maximum damage output for that skill.
You can also use it to try and escape from or chase enemies by lunging on the enemy minions or jungle monsters.
This is a very useful skill when playing against a melee champion and a ranged champion. It reflects the damage back to the enemy when he/she auto attacks you. Use it carefully when the enemy tries to harass you early on.
This skill gives you a lot of attack speed and when landing your basic attacks or lunges, it gives you movement speed. Use this when trying to chase someone or when running away by attacking enemy minions or jungle monsters. It also gives you a big advantage over your opponent. Dealing so much damage with so much attack speed will make you get a kill in a blink on an eye.
Blade Waltz is probably what makes Fiora so deadly and unique. It gives you the ability to dive under a turret and also the ability to hit more than 1 enemy champion in a team fight. When using Blade Waltz under a turret, the turret will not fire at you unless Blade Waltz is finished. It is best to use Blade Waltz when your team is in a team fight. DO NOT USE IT EARLY AND DO NOT ENGAGE WITH IT!
When using Blade Waltz in a team fight, Blade Waltz will end on the champion you used it on. Let's say there was a team fight and you used Blade Waltz on the enemy Lux, it will end on Lux. Which means Fiora will land next to Lux.
The most famous item among most of the AD Bruisers. It gives you life steal, attack damage, and health regeneration. Its passive damages nearby enemies. And its active gives you extra damage, actually 100% of you attack damage. So why not rush this item and get easy kills?
This item is useful for Fiora because it has armor penetration, health, cool down reduction, and damage. This item is what brings down tanks to their knees against Fiora.
DEFINITELY A MUST HAVE AFTER THE BUFF!! It gives you a shield that absorbs up t0 450 damage. It has a buffed damage from 70 to 80. It also has a buffed life steal from 12% to 15%. You'd only be crazy if you didn't take this item!
This item gives you a lot of damage and has a great passive that might benefit Fiora sometime.
I don't really take zephyr for Fiora but I sometimes consider it in some situations. Since it gives Fiora a huge amount of attack speed and movement speed that goes well with her Burst of Speed, attack damage, cool down reduction, and has a great passive with reduces the durations of crowd control against Fiora.
I have never recommended this item before, and I will definitely won't recommend it after the latest patch which gave this item a huge nerf.
Great item used against tanky champions. Does tons of damage due to its armor penetration. Combined with Black Cleaver, will make your tanky opponent become as squishy as Teemo
I recommend this item if you're facing an AP heavy team or an AP top. In this new patch, this item's damage got buffed which is better for Fiora. It also removes any crowd control effects on you.
Fiora is an AD beast, building items like Randuin's Omen will put her back in the game.
This is basically my only defensive item in the game since Fiora needs the extra damage to wipe off the enemy team. It is really good when you are focused in a team fight and didn't get the chance to show off your muscles.
Not recommend. Once again, Burst of Speed gives you a lot of attack speed, you don't need that extra attack speed because you're not an ADC marksmen.
These boots go great with Fiora because she needs that extra cool down reduction to completely demolish the enemy champions one after the other.
Your Role in Team Fights
When playing Fiora properly, I can almost guarantee you the penta kill. Your role in a team fight is to kill the enemy's ADC first, since the ADC is a ranged champion and does tons of damage in a short period of time. After killing the ADC, now you can focus on champions that are NOT TANKY. Killing the most damaging champions in your enemy team will take the weights off of your team's shoulders. If in a team fight you noticed that all or most of the enemy team is running low or almost low on health, DONT BE AFRAID TO USE YOUR ULTI NOW!. And one last thing, you're not a tank. That means never engage first.
Role in game
Your first objective is to take down your enemy's turret first. NEVER gank when your opponent's turret is still standing, this will create chaos for your team:
1- your opponent will have free farm
2- your opponent might take down your turret
3- theres a chance that your opponent might gank his team mates several times to try and feed them so they won't worry next time you gank.
WELL THEN HOW DO I HELP OUT MY TEAM?
First of all, kills don't win you the game, objectives do.
Secondly, try to take down the turret of your opponent, make a small push, then gank your fellow teammates.
Thirdly, WARD WARD WARD!!! This is the most simple thing to do in the game and yet most of the players forget/do want to do.
ITS NOT MY JOB TO WARD, IT'S THE SUPPORT'S JOB...
The support is able to place 3 wards only. Let's say a ward at baron, a ward at drake, and a ward at the bot river. Your team lacks vision at your jungle, top, mid, and their jungle. Which basically means you will get ganked and jumped on really easily = GAME OVER
don't be afraid to ask questions about points i wasn't clear about in this guide, or maybe something I didn't mention.
Fiora isn't a complicated champion, a few games against AI will let have a good idea of how she works. I hope this guide was beneficial to you. If this guide helped you, please like because I need the support to make other guides. Thank you for reading ^^
