Hello, welcome to my Fiora guide. This guide will be fairly empty, as I wanted to put it up as quickly as possible. I started playing Fiora the moment she came out, and all I can say is that she is amazing. Hope you enjoy my build.

***Please realize that this build is not complete, I just wanted to get it out there.****

The goal with the items I chose here was to have that carry like dps, without the carry like health and survivability. My first few games I attempted to follow the "Phreak" guide, which like always was horrible. So instead I said to myself "How would she be if played like a tanky dps?" Well, the result was amazing.

Why open with cloth five? Well surprisingly Phreak was right there -- opening cloth 5 is a great way of sustaining until you can get your Wriggle's latern
You do not "need" to get a BT, if your team needs the wards for baron then keep your wriggles. However if your support or tank have it under control, then the BT is a nice upgrade.

The rune choices are for a specific reason...

The Seals and Glyphs are to allow Fiora to be little tankier, which is what I was going for with this build.

But the main ones that may come into question are the Marks and Quints.
The two best marks for AD are attack speed, and armor pen. However with this build Fiora is at about 2.3 attack speed while her E is going, so Just thinking in terms of hopeful math--If people don't build armor, then that armor pen would increase your overall dps by 10-15%. While around 10% extra attack speed (Assuming you're at about 200% bonus attack speed) is only about 3% damage increase.

The math isn't that hard, if you are at 100% attack speed and you add 10%, then you are at 110% which is a 10% increase on what you had.
However if you are 300%, then 310% is only 3% more then that.

While the "Dps increase" per attack speed is still the same for the first 10% as it is for the last 10%, attack speed doesn't scale off itself. So if instead you got 20% increased damage from armor pen, then that would be a true 20% increase in your total output.

This is why Balancing Attack speed, damage, crit, and lifesteal is so important for AD carries.(in most cases)

How to use your skills

Fiora's skills are pretty straight forward, however here I will post a quick know how on what to do, and what to not do.

--Fiora's Q-- is a gap closing ability, as of such a rank should be grabbed early for harass, but left until later levels to max.

**What to use lunge for**
-Close gaps to harass or pursue
--Dodge Skill shots and or retreat.

***What to be careful of***
-Using both charges to pursue, without a clear path of retreat if you can't win the exchange.

--Fiora's W-- Grants passive damage, and upon activation will block the next physical single target attack.(Can anyone say Parley?) While extremely strong, it still falls second on the priority to level.

**What to use Riposte for**
-Blocking physical single target attacks. For anyone who has played Sivir, this should be a breeze.
--Extra damage in duels.

***What to be careful of***
-Be careful to use this ability at the right time, assuming you are not winning by a landslide. If you are going against a strong AD, this ability can be a life saver if used correctly.
--Don't use it before you just into a fight, this may lead to it simply expiring without ever blocking anything. Wait until you see damage coming your way.

--Fiora's E-- This is ability grants Fiora a staggering 120% attack speed at max rank, as well as up to 45% movement increase. This ability is by far Fiora's strongest, and should be ranked above all else except her Ultimate.

**What to use Burst of speed for**
-Generic DPS, use it to farm, use it to kill, use it to win.
--Not much else to say here.

***What to be careful of***
-Casting it too early. BoS has a fairly short cooldown, but it can still wear off leaving you with a much lower dps output.
--This ability has reduced cooldown from kills and assists, be sure to activate it again whenever you get a kill.(Sounds like everyone's favorite backdooring Yi)

--Fiora's R-- This is Fiora's ultimate, and as such should be used correctly. The ability itself makes Fiora become untargetable while she flys around hitting people.(Kinda like Yi's Alpha Strike)

**What to use Blade Waltz for**
-Use Blade Waltz as a finisher move, your goal in most cases should be to get the person to point where they will die when you use your ult.
--Towards the late game use this ability to break the focus off you. During the duration you become untargetable, and many times people will forget to start focusing you again after you're done flying around.

***What to be careful of***
-If you don't follow the advice above and use it to initiate on a unguaranteed kill, then you may end up dying from being pulled to far towards their turret or team when it ends.
--Be careful to not activate this while exhausted. This ability deals physical damage, and is therefore reduced by exhaust.
