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.

Intro

Welcome to my guide for Fiora! In this guide I will discuss my build choices as well as my setup for all of her skills, masteries and runes.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros

    Great level scaling
    Early game harass with level 1 lunge
    Parry saves your life
    Great burst damage and mobility
    Safe ulti (Untargetable)
    Doesn't need Phantom dancers
    Doesn't need to get early damage thanks to Riposte's passive

Cons
    A semi-squishy champ for top lane
    CC would destroy her
    If you're not aggressive, you will get dominated
    No CC spells
    Lunge can't target allied minions, not much escape options

Runes

Since Fiora's early game harassment is top notch, she needs the defense to back it up. So stacking armor and magic resist is a must. Armor penetration is pretty basic as well as attack damage quints. Why not movement speed runes? Well, because when you use your Burst of speed and lunge combo, you receive a good movement speed bonus to boot. Fiora doesn't need much attack damage runes because of Riposte's passive. This skill sequence is focused on aggression.

Masteries

Again, this a pretty basic build for any melee AD carry. Taking all you can in damage, life steal, penetration and speed. Also putting some on the defense tree.

Items

No tanky items early game? There is no need for it in my opinion. With the life steal and her passive in play, your lane sustainability is solely dependent on your ability to harass effectively. Also, make sure to ward the river brush whenever possible as Fiora does not have any good escape skills. I chose the early Blood Thirster because the life steal helps with damage scaling as well as health sustainability. It also gives your Blade Waltz a more effective use with the on hit effects. On top of your sustainability, I build to a Black cleaver to assure on-hit effects as well as damage output. I build tanky afterwords with a frozen mallet, yet another on hit effect item. Infinity edge for that extra damage and a guardian angel for late game engagements.

Also, a substitute for Guardian angel would be a maldred's blood razor if the enemy team is too tanky.

Team Work

In team fights you do NOT want to initiate with Blade waltz. Your blade waltz is your safest form of damage. When you see someone low, use your ulti to assure the kill and weaken the enemy team. Make sure to stick onto vital targets with your Lunge and never forget your Burst of speed along with your Parry.

Summary

This build might not work for everyone, but it has worked for me. This build is for overall game aggression, no one can best Fiora in a 1v1. Remember, Blade waltz either when the enemy is low or you are low.
