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.
Welcome peeps to my Fiora jungle and laning guide. My target to achieve through this guide is for Fiora players to understand that
First off, why even jungle with Fiora? She is more of a carry that should stay on the lane and harass her opponents. Her passive gives her great sustainability and the ability to harass enemy champions getting both with low health pools, but later Fiora regenerates her health back due to the awesomeness of Duelist. Jungle Fiora is crazy because she works as a great a ganker. Once you have all 3 of your basic spells, you will be able to get first blood by encountering the enemy jungler or ganking lanes.
P.S. I am not responsible for any fails you have in games. In really depends on enemy champions so please read the tips below to counter them.
For Runes, as a jungler I take the basics:
9 Greater Seal of Armor As usual, this rune is no surprise for a fellow jungler. Reduce them minion damage!
9 Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist As a standard DPS carry, this rune gives me the magic resist i need to survive team fights as Fiora would usually be focused first in team fights.
Greater Mark of Attack Damage, Greater Mark of Desolation, Greater Quintessence of Desolation and Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage are all important runes, especially for a dps carry. Try to experiment them themselves and mix it up. Having both is not such a bad idea.
Jungle Fiora Masteries
For jungling with Fiora, I take every mastery in the offense page to buff my physical attack damage and minion reduction damage in defense. Bladed Armor allows me to take out monsters quicker.
Laning Fiora Masteries
Since you are laning, take Durability and Veteran's Scars for sustainability and the ability to survive ganks. As usual, take 21 points in offense buffing up your physical attack damage.
Tanky Fiora Masteries
Fiora can also be played as an off tank with the masteries 9/21/0 setup. Playing Fiora as an off tank is a good idea because she would be the main focus in team fights, so playing off tank makes you both a great source of damage and a great tank.
Fiora has a wide item range pick. It all depends on the enemy team composition. Wether the enemy team is tanky, heavy ap, heavy ad or balanced, all have different build guides. So let's go by each one.
Tanky Enemy Team Composition
Having Jarvan IV, Blitzcrank, Volibear, Mordekaiser and Alistar as the enemy team is, in my opinion, the worst nightmare ever. First off, you can't do damage at all in late game. Second, every single one off them probably would've bought Thornmail To counter this enemy team, here are the core items i use:
Madred's Bloodrazor This item is a one of the best items to counter tanks. It does bonus magic damage based on 4% of the target's max HP on every basic attack.
Last Whisper Armor penetration is a tank's worst enemy. Last Whisper gives you 40% armor penetration. That's 40% of the target's MAX armor.
The Black Cleaver This item is just awesome, since it reduces 15 armor on each attack, imagine the stacks with the runes and other armor penetration items. The Black Cleaver also gives a lot of bonus damage and attack speed.
Yomuu's Ghostblade This item is more of an early laning item because it only gives 25 armor penetration. In mid game, that armor penetration is pretty much nothing to armor tanks, but it's active is really usefull considering it gives 50% bonus attack speed.
Heavy AP teams usually consists of 2 mages or more. Since Fiora is a squishy champion, you need to rack on both magic resist and damage. Here are the core items i pick for this composition:
Wit's End This item gives a bunch of magic resist in team fights. Not to mention the bonus 42 magic damage it gives.
Guardian Angel When being nuked from out of nowhere, you might surprise your enemies with this item. It also gives some magic resist.
Mercury's Treads These are the must have boots to counter AP nukers and burst. It gives you Tenacity and magic resist for more durability.
Banshee's Veil This item gives you incredible amount of magic resist plus, it blocks 1 negative spell. Can easily counter burst champions such as LeBlanc
Maw of Malmortius This item gives you a bunch of magic resist, but the fun part is, it gives you a spell shield when you are left under 40% health due to magic damage. Truly a trolling item.
Quicksilver Sash Like Gangplank's orange or Cleanse, this item allows you to remove any debuff on you, especially Malzahar's Essence of the Void. ( troll malzahar)
