Hey Guys! Thanks taking the time to read my guide! Fiora just recently came out so don't expect this guide to be extremely in-depth. I myself am still learning how to utilise her best

Fiora is very squishy and is best played in the Jungle. I will also be including a Lane Fiora build as well so stay tuned ^^

Ability Explanation

Ability Explanation

  • Duelist: This is what makes Fiora such a great jungler. It allows you to be constantly at a safe health so you can jungle easily and be ready to gank whenever the opportunity strikes.

  • Lunge (Q): Nice gap closer, since you have 2 Lunge's you can use one to initiate and one to catch up to the opponent if the Flash away. Lunge can also be used to juke enemies by dashing onto minions. Get one point of this at level 3 so you can gank and max it last as it serves no purpose other than the utility.

  • Riposte (W): Excellent ability. Riposte blocks not only the auto-attack but also the on-hit effects like Ashe's Frost Shot and the passive from Frozen Mallet. Activate this when you are sure the opponent will try to attack you to slow your advance. Also works very well if an opponent has an ability like Siphoning Strike or Tumble where their next basic attack will do much more damage.

    Riposte also gives bonus AD giving you more damage throughout the game. Get one point in Riposte at Level One and max it Second as it gives you more AD.

  • Burst of Speed (E): Fiora's damage depends upon this ability. Don't activate Burst of Speed too early as you will reduce your damage dramatically.

    Get one point in Burst of Speed at Level 2 and Max it first as it is your main form of damage on a low cooldown.

  • Blade Waltz (R): My favorite Ult of all time. Using Blade Waltz makes you un-targetable so use it midway through the fight so you can survive most of the damage and still deal a lot of damage yourself.

Guide Top



  • : This is an excellent choice for all AD Junglers. Not only does it give Lifesteal, Damage and Armour. It also has a really handy Unique Active which gives you a free ward every 3 minutes. These wards can be placed to keep track of important buffs and also Mega-Monsters which give global gold, like Dragon and Baron Nashor .
  • : Upgraded boots which also give bonus attack speed to add to your DPS.
  • : 60 Attack Damage and 15% Lifesteal. As Blade Waltz applies on hit effects you will regenerate health from the lifesteal. Also Blade Waltz has a 1.2 Attack Damage ratio so a fully stacked The Bloodthirster will give you 1240 damage altogether to a single target. Boom.
  • : Extra AD, Health regen and Mana regen. It's passive will make you an immense damage dealer in team fights. If you don't like this item swap it out for a The Black Cleaver or if they're team is extremely tanky a Madred's Bloodrazor
  • : Adds a whole ton to your DPS. Now Burst of Speed will get off about 6 or 7 hits. 7 x 300 = 2100 damage. Again, Boom.
  • : For that final jump of AD. Once you finish this you should be able to kill a squishy in about 2 seconds.


  • : You can swap Tiamat out for this if you think the enemy are very tanky.
  • : If you are one of those people who just don't like the Tiamat then you can get this item to shred some armour.
  • : Late game Wriggle's Lantern can be sold to buy this item. Gives decent Health damage and a slow to make full use of your Burst of Speed
