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.
As the youngest child of the noble House Laurent, Fiora always considered herself destined for greatness. The Laurents had dominated the dueling culture of Demacia's aristocracy for centuries, and Fiora's father was regarded as one of the finest swordsmen the nation had ever seen. Inspired by his tales of glory, Fiora began training as soon as she could wield a blade and quickly showed greater talent than any of her siblings. As she grew older, her self-confidence and rigid discipline only widened the gulf of expertise between Fiora and her peers. Her fellow duelists perceived her confidence as arrogance, but none could defeat her in combat, and each victory only heightened her lofty self-esteem. Even so, Fiora never allowed herself to become complacent in her training, and she drove herself ever harder to become a worthy successor to her father's legacy.
Her devotion turned out to be misplaced. On the eve of an arranged duel, Fiora's father was caught slipping a slow paralysis poison into his opponent's drink. Following the incident, many of his past opponents came forward with their own accusations: envenomed weapons, bribery, blackmail, and more. In an instant, he had destroyed his family's honorable reputation. Fiora was outraged. Not only had her hero betrayed her ideals, but Demacia's dueling elite now doubted her own ability. She desperately wanted to wipe the stain from her family's history but, even more, she wanted the world to acknowledge her mastery. She found her solution in the one arena where she could fight the world's strongest warriors without being accused of dishonesty: the League of Legends.
'' Fiora's ego would be insufferable if it wasn't so . . . justified.''

I play Fiora as an AD carry at bot lane this means if you want a character that has high damage but semi-low survivability then she is for you.
21/9/0 with her is the best option this is how i feel with almost every ad carry. The reason i dont pick up Deadliness is because i feel that 9 damage at level 18 is not a good investment because one Doran's Blade more damage than that. Most feel that Vampirism is not worth getting either. I completely disagree because even though yes its only 3% when you add that 3% onto The Bloodthirster and Wriggle's Lantern you are at 43% instead of 40% which means if one of their tanks has a Thornmail you get to keep around 15% life steal instead of 10%.
I Pick Greater mark of desolation instead of Greater Mark of Attack Damage because armor pen is much more important than flat AD the reason I say this is because, yes, Ad stacks with you abilities but Armor penetration makes it so you deal almost true damage to your enemies with all your of your skills. Greater Seal of Armor can be replaced with greater seal of vitality but i prefer Greater Seal of Armor because it gives you better early game survivability against other bot lane carries. Greater Glyph of Attack Speed are probably the best offensive glyphs. If you want more defensive you can get Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist these will help make it so you can survive nukes from casters like Veigar, Annie ect. Last but not least Greater quintessence of desolation like i said before armor pen is better than flat AD.
I'm still in progress to find the perfect basic items for a match. But as of right now i have found a pretty good set up. I will say that I always get a Wriggle's Lantern as my first main item. Some people will find this to be stupid or pointless but in reality Wriggle's Lantern is probably one or if not thee best item in the game. The reason i say that is because it helps tremendously with farm which many people forget how important farm is. Also it provides damage, life-steal , armor and a free ward! Next item that is probably one of my favorites is the The Bloodthirster this item at max stacks is 100 damage and 25% life steal this combined with Wriggle's Lantern and your masteries gives you around 40% life-steal this is Fiora's survivability these 2 items are what makes her survive. Next most people wonder why i would get a Phantom Dancer because of Fiora's already high attack speed from Burst of Speed well mainly because once Burst of Speed runs out which is fairly quick and if you do not get the kill your waiting on another 8 seconds till your main damage source is ready. Having a Phantom Dancer makes this situation always in your favor. I like to get either Last Whisper or The Black Cleaver next so that Fiora can rip through enemies armor. If they have a tank team go with Last Whisper, if its mostly squishy's then go with The Black Cleaver. If the game is still going on then sell the Doran's Blade for a Frozen Mallet. This will give you more health and help you make it so your enemies do not escape.
I always run with Flash and Teleport but there are many different summoner spells that you can run with on Fiora for example you could get Ghost and Exhaust this combo will make it so your enemies have no chance of running from you. Also you can run Flash and Exhaust same concept as Ghost and Exhaust but Flash can be used both offensively and defensively. While Ghost is more offensive in my opinion.
I will try to update this guide as best as i can but i do not get on this website very much anymore since i figure out what kinds of builds work for me now. Ill be posting screenshots of my recent wins to show my average games with her and if anyone wants to share theirs with my build send me the sceenie and ill try to put it in here. Last but not least if you think i should add something or want to add your own touch to my build message me the info you want to put in it and ill give you full credit for your entry. Thumbs up and like the guide. =)
