This is Fiora
's passive. It heals Fiora
by a certain amount over a period of time after performing a basic attack. Remember though, this is not an instant heal, it is regeneration. Therefore do not expect to instantly get the healing amount after a basic attack. Every attack resets the passive and attacking an enemy Champion will stack the healing done by 4. This passive is what makes Fiora
a viable jungler and makes her fairly sustained through the game.
's first skill is a gap closer to ANY enemy. It can be casted twice, once for the first cast and twice for a couple of seconds after the first Lunge
. I usually use Lunge
as a gap closer and an utility escape. Therefore, I would take Lunge
at level 3 or 4 depending on your ability to gank at that time. If you dont the oppourtunity to gank, then take this skill at level 4 and then max it last since the dash is the only thing you're looking for early on.
Just like in the Champion Spotlight
, you can use the first Lunge
on a minion and the second on to the enemy champion if you want a bigger gap closed. You can also use Lunge
as an escape tool to an enemy minion. With that, you need to learn to utilise Lunge
at its best to really own with Fiora
's second skill is her "dueling" skill. It passively increases her attack damage and if activated, will PARRY
an opponent's next basic attack and damage the opponent by a certain amount. It will NOT reflect the damage applied the basic attack itself. Try to time it before a basic attack from a champion. Properly timing this skill could seriously mess some champions up like Nasus
's Siphoning Strike
's Power Fist
combo. Because this skill basically blocks an attack from a large minion such as the Blue Golem
and the Red Lizard
, it would be crazy not to take this first for jungling. Also, you cannot PARRY
any small minions so they wont activate your block which you'd need for the bigger minions instead. And that is just fantastic =) I max this out second because of its damage increase which is mostly useful early-mid game.
's energy steroid which makes just an absolute beast. Because of this skill, my build focuses on getting more damage orientated items than attack speed. After attacking an opponent when Burst of Speed
is activated, Fiora
gets a movement speed boost for a couple of seconds until the buff wears off. Lunge
also activates this movement speed boost so try to use the skills in sync. Since this is Fiora
's most useful skill in terms of attacking, I max it out first. I try to make sure I get close or can get close to the opponent before I activate Burst of Speed
since the movement speed buff wont come if you don't land an attack first. More about how to fully use her skills effectively later.
's ultimate is called Blade Waltz
. I like to call it Omnislash
or MEGA Alpha Strike
. I will ONLY hit champions which makes this skill soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than Master Yi
's Alpha Strike
or Juggernaut's Omnislash (from DotA). YES, I used to play DotA. Anyway, Blade Waltz
hits random enemy champions by a certain amount. It can hit the same enemy champion more than once as well but the damage from successive attacks will only deal 25%. However, if there is only one target champion, this skill could deal up to 200%
of the damage that was meant to be. So basically a level 3 Blade Waltz
could do a base damage of 1000 (that is without the added AD bonus) to a single lonely opponent. Your ultimate could also potentially save your *** if you used it right. A great example is in the Champion Spotlight
where Phreak uses Blade Waltz
to be basically invulnerable for a couple of seconds while attacking every hero in sight. In that scenario, Phreak also used it to heal up using lifesteal and Duelist
which gave him a better chance of survival during that encounter and even the kill. Just like Master Yi
's Alpha Strike
returns to the enemy she clicked on. So be careful because sometimes that might lead you into bad places...where you DIE
Ganking and Fighting
When ganking as Fiora
, I would usually lead with Lunge
then activate Burst of Speed
. If I know my opponent would attack me with a basic attack, I would activate Riposte
for the parry and the extra damage dealt to them.
I would continue using basic attacks to wear them down while using the second Lunge
to keep up with them if I need to. If you haven't killed them yet, you can always use Blade Waltz
to finish them off.
When in a team fight, I would suggest waiting until someone else initiates. DO NOT go and attack the enemy carry straight away if no one from both teams has initiated. Fighting with Fiora
is like fighting as Master Yi
or Xin Zhao
, you have to focus on the squishes before taking out that Alistar
with Unbreakable Will
herself is a very squishy character so you'll have to be careful when coming up to range against AP carries or ranged AD carries. Don't use Blade Waltz
until you've taken up some damage. Because the heal from Duelist
or your lifesteal will be useless if you use it with full health. Make sure your team knows who to focus during team fights or you will basically lose.
