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.
Hi, this is SuperBUGS.
Welcome to my guide.
Fiora is one of the most strongest AD champion i've ever played, in fact she is the strongest.
It hurts me to see that all the other Fiora players out there, simply build her wrong.
I play Fiora as a tanky/dps champion that will have what it takes to dive towers and to take on 2v1 situations.
Why play Fiora ?
Has 325 ms, wow that's pretty fast with you have your third skill.
Have over 225 Damage, by lvl 13
Kills squishy enemy champion in "a blink of an eye"
Has 95 dmg at lvl 1 ? WTFFF
Fiora is like an Ashe. BE CAREFUL WHEN FIGHTING.
Doesnt have many escaping tools. ( I ALWAYS PLAN TO DRAG AT LEASE 2 CARRIES TO HELL WITH ME BEFORE I DIE) :D
Early top gank and cripple her. SO BE CAREFUL.
Well heres a question that i always get asked by my friends... "BUGS. your runes look... funny."
My reply... "rofl STFU"
Anyways, DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE MY RUNES.
Fiora needs them to tower dive, to tank and to OWN 1v1 lane.
NOTE"I play flat dmg because my build is based on armor penetration. If you didn't realize."
This is Armor pen reduction based on percent, there fore i do not care about early 15 armor pens. But do whatever suits you.
Alright. The question here is HOW DOES A FIORA solo top ?
There are 5 golden rules you must remember.
1. Hold tab. ANALYSIS THE TEAM AT THE START OF THE GAME. WHOS JUNGLE etc. (many people dont do this, its just a reminder.)
2. Apply early pressure. You'll be amazed at the chucks of HP you take from your opponent with a few early strikes.
3. KEEP AN EYE BEHIDE YOU. As i mention, she is pretty much screwed over if you get ganked by their jungler. SO BE ALERT.
4. REMEMBER ALWAYS USE YOUR JUNGLER. DONT WAIT TO THE LAST MINUTE. "this is where most people fail to do so, BULLY YOUR JUNGLER IF YOU NEED HELP. its better then losing your lane."
5. Be smart. Dont charge in like a tard or thinking that your macho man. Seriously think about assaulting someone, check the map before you commit & and calculate your survival chances.
Here are some tips. Use them wisely.
1. Remember. your burst of speed does not apply bonus attack speed or movement speed until you actually hit something. To get max speed, hit burst of speed FIRST, then LUNGE onto something (creep or champion) do not turn on B.O.S and start running at them. COMBO YOUR SKILLS.
2. If your getting owned. Like me when lanning against champions like irelia and your jungler hasnt been gangkin, then TAKE HIS GREEN GOLEMS IF YOUR ON TOP SIDE OF THE MAP OR TAKE HIS WOLVES IF YOUR ON THE BOTTOM. This helps you a lot by waiting for the creep to push to your tower and is the only way to "keep up" in your lane.
3. I start of with a dorans, lol its funny but since you have the godly passive & life steal from dorans + high dmg + armor from runes, then WHY NOT ? If im getting gang so often then i will get a boots, IN THE END 3 DORANS IS ESSENTIAL. ALWAYS HAVE A WARD. REMEMBER FK, SPEND THAT LEFT OVER 75g IT COULD HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE.
4. DONT BE SCARED TO GO EARLY PRESSURE. YOU HAVE THE 2 MOST ELITE SKILLS. IGNITE AND EXHAUST.
USE THEM BOTH IF YOU HAVE TOO, THATS WHY THEIR THERE. IGNITE STOPS HEALING (YEAH FK IRELIA ROFLS) & EXHAUST GIVES YOU THE UPPER HAND. It also cuts 10 of their armor + another 6 + another 10% armor pen from your mastery tree. THIS IS WHY I DONT GET ARMOR PEN MARKS.
5. Your summoners play a BIG ROLE. You can combo it with your utli, speaking of utli AT lvl 6 you can try and dive towers. Thats if your owning.
6. Why do i play Armor pen style ? Well, YOUR FREAKING UTLI IS AD. AND IT APPLY ON HIT EFFECTS. LOL but the bad thing is that if you target only 1 champion then, it reduces your dmg output by 25%. YOU CAN MAKE UP FOR THIS WITH 40% ARMOR PEN FROM YOUR WHISPER + Black Cleaver.
7. BTW. I DONT KNOW IF ITS A BUG OR NOT BUT, IF GALIO UTLIS while your in your utli duration, you reappear at HIM last... The utli shouldve reappeared at the last person you targeted and i know that my target didnt die.
Its funny but happened like 6 times to me already, IS THIS RIOT's SECRET TO COUNTER OUR UTLI's ? =_____=
8. Lastly remember your goal is to kill your enemy's back line, meaning the squishes, have someone else initiate during the late game so you can get in there and DESTROY everything. Use your utli wisely, i only use mine when i realize that im being targeted or trying to finish of a 2v1. I choose these defensive runes because of the utli's short as range also, it'll help you gain that extra tankiness and distance which makes up for the down side of your utli.
ANYWAYS THANK YOU FOR READING.
I WOULD OF PUT PICTURES AND VIDEOS OF MY GAME PLAY BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW. =_____= sadly IF I CAN EDIT THIS THEN i'll update this guide with extra game play video's and pictures.
