Hi everyone ! This is my second guide on mobafire about a character that i really appreciate. There might be some mistakes or even not fully detailled things but the basics are here, i just hope you like it and try it as well.

Who's Fiora ?

Fiora is a new champion in League of Legends. She is an melee AD with strong attack damages. Some of the players likes to play her pure AD and others prefer Offtank. It's sure that Fiora is REALLY squishy and suffers of a low base health all over the game. As she has no CC or even a good escape it's quite hard to control her early game and get feeded enough, that's why you should rely on jungling and farming, she's made for that.

Some people can compare Fiora to Master Yi or Tryndamere. It's true that she's a melee carry like them and you should never see her as an ***sassin like Talon. Fiora has no Burst damages, she can only count on her attack speed to deal a lot of damages per second while stealing life to survive. Her ganks and actions in teamfights are always quick, since you are squishy you'll get easy focused and killed...

Many of the offenses masteries are usefull on Fiora, and i use Butcher and Runic Affinity because i'm jungling. Don't waste your points on armor and magic resists, that's what the runes are for. I put only 2 points in Brute Force for having enough skill points in support tree.

Summoner Spells

Main spells :

  • : Sometimes i see people playing jungle without Smite. That IS a big mistake. Imagine the opponent team wants to steal your dragon or baron and you don't have smite to finish it before they attack, you're screwed. Also it allows you to finish jungle faster, think on it.
  • : I think Ghost is actually better than Flash, the cooldown is lower and it gives you a great movement speed for some seconds. It goes well on Fiora because she already has a great movement speed from Burst of Speed.

Other Spells
  • : If you think teleporting through walls is the best escape then take this but never use it while escaping someone near you on a lane it's a big waste.
  • : Many players see this skills for noobs but since Fiora is really squishy don't be shy to take it.
  • : Good when you need to defend someone's tower or farm, don't forget to use it on wards for safety.
  • : It's nice using this while chasing someone or when you get chased. The thing is that it actually really lowers the damages you take so it can help.
  • : For kill secure lovers, i prefer using Blade Waltz instead.

Now i'll explain with screenshots i took myself how works Fiora's abilities (click on the screens to see them bigger).

As simple as it says, this passive regenerate health over seconds as long as you strike an ennemy. The effect can stack 4 times if you attack a Champion. This passive goes pretty well with lifesteal items but you'll see more in the items section.

This ability is an amazing chasing ability. You can use it a second time with no mana cost and that's why it's good. Imagine you're using it a first time and the opponent flashes, you'll be able to use it a second time in order to catch up the target.

On the screens you can see a little trick with Lunge. If the target is too far, you can use the first try on a minion to be in range and then rush the opponent, isn't that amazing ? It's very fast so they won't have time to escape you.

Riposte allows you to return an ability or basic attack that would hit you. It is very usefull against carry's like Ashe or Caitlyn because they often harass in lane or teamfights.

Like you can see on the screens, i used Riposte right before Ashe shots an arrow on me and it reflected the damages on her. It's passive gives you great attack damage bonus to begin your jungle, don't waste it.

Burst of Speed gives you up to 120% attack speed for 3 seconds and can stack 3 movement speed booster while attacking. The cooldown for this skill is the highest of the 4 abilities but as i spam it almost always when i farm or fight i just don't see the cooldown passing.

As you can see on the two screens after one hit the movement speed grows. It can be usefull for escaping or chasing someone.

This is one of my favorite abilities so far. Blade Waltz is a great engage on teamfights and one of the best kill secure i've used. When you use Blade Waltz on an opponent, Fiora will start attacking all champions in sight randomly then get back on the target you targeted FIRST.

The other thing that makes Blade Waltz so good is that you can't be targeted or take any damages from anyone while doing it. Like you can see on the screens i finish Ashe under tower without getting attacked, then just go away. You may tell this actually looks like Master Yi's Alpha Strike but the damages aren't the same and Blade Waltz does attack damages.

Take Riposte first as you jungle you'll have 83 AD to start with. Burst of Speed will help you finish the jungle easier and faster and on level 3 Lunge will allow you to gank correctly on lanes.

Hybrid Fiora
Item Sequence

Boots of Swiftness

Wriggle's Lantern

The Bloodthirster

Spirit Visage

The Black Cleaver

I find this build perfect for Fiora. She has health regen, attack speed and movement speed and obviously needs cooldown reduction.
  • : Taking The Brutalizer early game allows you to buy this item for almost nothing. It gives cooldown reduction and bonus attack speed/movement speed on active, that's all Fiora needs.

  • : Okay i understand much of people takes berserker boots for bonus attack speed but with Youmuu's Ghostblade and [burst of speed those boots are actually worthless that's why i take movement speed boots for Fiora to be as fast as she can.

  • : Base jungle item, gives some armor, damages and even lifesteal. It also provides a ward helping mates on lane. You can sell it for something late game if you feel so.

  • : Best damage item on Fiora. Gives a lot of lifesteals and bonus attack damages for each kill. If you farm while having this item before going in a fight, you'll have monster damages to show.

  • : Cheap item to get early game, goes well with Fiora's passive and The Bloodthirster. Also gives some health and magic resist that Fiora misses so much.

  • : The final item to get, gives some damage and good attack speed that goes well on Fiora but i take it because of it's passive. You can also take Last Whisper for armor penetration if you feel like missing golds but The Black Cleaver worth much more.

Offtank Fiora
Item Sequence

Warmog's Armor

Atma's Impaler

Wit's End

The Bloodthirster

Last Whisper

Fiora is a very squishy character like all melee carrys, that's why many players choose to play her as an offtank. Like you see i don't take triniy force on her since it's totally useless and expensive.

  • : An amazing item for avoiding a full crown control team with Tenacity. Also gives some significant magic resist.

  • : Feeling squishy ? Not enough health ? This item is for you. Farming with Fiora is pretty easy with Burst of Speed so the bonus health will come fast and you'll reach 3000 health in no time.

  • : Since you have a lot of HP, why not convert it into attack damage ? This items gives you also some armor and critical but Fiora doesn't rely on criticals.

  • : Great attack speed bonus with magic resist and deals magic damages while you attack, pretty usefull if you build yourself tanky and need attack speed.

  • : An offtank has great defense with damage, that's why The Bloodthirster will always stay on Fiora's side

  • : This build is very expensive that's why i take Last Whisper instead of The Black Cleaver, it gives enough damage and great armor penetration for Fiora to be usefull late game.

Pure AD Fiora
Item Sequence

The Bloodthirster

Phantom Dancer

Frozen Mallet

Infinity Edge

Madred's Bloodrazor

This build can actually be better than the first one but... realize that it's twice the price of the first build.

  • : The basic attack speed boots that a lot of AD players take.

  • : Again and again, this item will never get off Fiora or i'll deal with it.

  • : A good item on Fiora that gives a lot of attack speed and even movement speed. Since you're playing a full AD Fiora you need also some criticals.

  • : Once you get this you're free to move and attack freely. But beware, having a lot of HP doesn't mean that you are invicible. With Phantom Dancer's movement speed, Frozen Mallet's passive that slows ennemy will allow you to chase targets easier.

  • : I'm not really sure about this item usefulness on Fiora but since it gives the most attack damages and doubles your critical hits, why not ?

  • : Armor, Damage, Attack Speed. This item is made for crushing down the tanks opponents over 3000 health.

Speed : 7/10
Difficulty : 5/10
Ganking : 5/10

Jungling with Fiora is quite easy. With Riposte you get 15 AD bonus from the beginning ! Then Burst of Speed comes with amazing attack speed bonus. If you take Vampiric Scepter along with Duelist, Fiora will finish jungle with no problems on health. But still, ganking is a problem for Fiora since she has no real crowd control like stuns or slows, but don't worry there is always something helpfull.


  • Buy a Vampiric Scepter and get Riposte.
  • Begin at blue, ask for pull and cover.
  • Get Burst of Speed and go on wolfes, kill the big one first.
  • Go on wraiths and use both Burst of Speed and Riposte while fighting the big one.
  • If you have more than half health, go on red or skip it if you feel weak.
  • Do golems, smite the big one if you didn't do red and get Lunge
  • Go back, buy boots and 2x Health Potion.
  • Do wolfs and wraiths again.
  • Gank bot or mid !


    Ganking with Fiora is not easy as it seems. First of all you always rely on Lunge to engage someone but be sure that they actually are near YOUR tower. Fiora doesn't have any crowd control so be sure to check your mates before ganking. Use Riposte and Burst of Speed after Lunge while chasing and attacking your targets. If the target comes under their tower with low health and you have ultimate.... USE IT, JUST DO IT AND GET FREE KILL AND ASSISTS !
