Threats & Synergies
Klepto Just Parry his 3rd Q and u won't be able to lose the fight if u stun him. If u struggle against it take Conqueror and buy Executioners
Grasp Farm Farm Farm Dont ever fight
Most Blitzcranks won't ever Q before you parry they try to run you down with his E and afterwards Q for chain CC. You can stun him with parry'ing his E CC
Grasp Fiora is Camille's hardest counter and u should mostly win against her. The longer the game goes the harder u should win, matchup highly depends on camille's skill lvl. Parry her E or lategame her 2. Q if she doesnt E you.
Fleet Try to bait out her W cause u can't Q while standing in it. If u parry her ult u should win hard. Mostly farm lane since none of you can kill each other.
Klepto or Conqueror Take long fights vs him and parry his Q
Conqueror One of the hardest matchups especially early game if he uses E right before ult you won't be able to parry it. Dash into him when he uses Q so he doesnt get his healing off and either parry his ult or his E. 3+ Items you outscale him and win hard.
Klepto Try to parry his E since its his highest burst if u fight in minions it will be hard for him to hit his Q. The longer the game goes the harder you outscale him since fiora is a tank killer
Conqueror Parry his passiv or W to win
Stop playing normal game and go into ranked you insecure person
Conqueror or Klepto You can either parry his W right before it runs out. The saver way is to parry his E since he can't prevent it even if he taunt's you before using E u have a small gap to parry it and hard win the fight.
Grasp Parry his passiv autoattack he most likely will aswell Q into it. He hard wins lane just try to outsustain with lifesteal.
Klepto or Conqueror Parry his Q in early game for short trades, run away from his E he will be slowed from parry anyway. Lategame u hard win with ult, try to parry his R
Fleet or Grasp Fight him when he has no jump or is in mega gnar since u can stun him with parry. If you engage right before his mega gnar expires he will most likely use his ult since he can't use it afterwards so be ready to parry that.
Conqueror or Grasp U will play vs tank Gragas very rarely matchup isnt that hard since you can parry his R
Conqueror If u parry his E you have to parry behind you to stun him since he dashes through you. Don't underrestimate his ignite all ins
Fleet Farm matchup since you can't kill him in his towers
Conqueror Parry her E so her ult is weaker you earlygame run away as soon as she ults, lategame u will deal enough damage to kill her fast enough before she bursts with ult
Conqueror or Klepto One of the easiest matchups since you can easily stun her with her E and slow her attackspeed she hasn't much more than this in her kit.
Conqueror Hold parry until he uses E-Q don't panic as soon as he uses his E. Point your parry right to his flag otherwise he won't get stunned since he dashes to flag.
Grasp A lot of Jax players want to fight lvl1 but Fiora wins it. Fiora hard wins lane even if it's a skill matchup vs good jax players you might struggle. You don't need to parry his stun if you can't the autoattack slow of parry will win it for you. As soon as he gets Shojin this matchup is one of the hardest if you aren't very far ahead don't fight him as soon as you see he bought it.
Fleet or Grasp Good Jayce players won't E into parry so just parry his meele Q since you can react easily to it.
Fleet Kayle is very weak and abuseable earlygame. When she hits 6 it will be very hard to kill her 1v1 since she is ranged form already. Try to help other lanes or wait for jungler
Fleet or Grasp U didnt bann kennen so you get punished with -3 lp for dodging
Conqueror Parry his second instance of Q or his 3rd autoattack of W.
Fleet Just watch Lissandra very closely her hands do a slight movement to the top when she uses ult. Parry it and she won't have any chance left.
Klepto Earlygame you can trade a lot with him just dash into your Vitals and autoattack+parry afterwards he will immediatly use his E and u will hard win the trade. After lvl6 it will be 2v1 lane since malphite ult is mostly a free kill so don't waste parry and just survive.
Conqueror or Klepto Maokai's Q,W and R are very easy to react to just parry one of the spells and stun him.
Conqueror or Grasp Matchup is mostly okay if you only do short trades in earlygame to ensure he doesn't get passive and runs you down. You have to be very carefull when you use ur ult since the heal field does not come with you into morde's R. If you fight him in his R sidestep his E and parry his Q since its his only damage ability.
Conqueror Dog Champ parry his Q when he ults and immediatly R
Conqueror from time to time you will play vs nautilus, but mostly he will be enemy support. You can Parry his Q R or if he autoattacks you it will also stun if parry'd correctly.
Fleet Don't parry her E spare it to parry her ult
Conqueror Parry his E the get the timing in your head since the picture over your attackbar shows it incorrectly
Conqueror Be very careful if he is low life since he is a lot stronger. You can kill him pre 6 since you can slow his attack speed and best case scenario even parry Q or E. After lvl6 the matchup gets a little harder but you outscale hard.
Conqueror or Klepto Ornn does a lot of damage but he will mostly autoattack for his W passive, parry it and he will be stunned afterwards you can run him down with ult
Conqueror or Grasp Parry his Q if you don't have the reaction time for his W. After lvl6 you have one offensive spell more than he does. Wait for Nerfs :D:D
Conqueror or Grasp Sometimes poppys are very baitable if you stand near a wall to parry her E. If you stand outside of her W and she runs towards you, you can Q+W to dash into it and stun her.
Conqueror Don't parry his Q since he will E right afterwards and you can stun him with his E and then he has no mobility spell anymore.
Fleet or Grasp Wait for her to E since it does a slight knockback it stuns her if you parry it and she can't dodge it since she still is in her animation
If you get ganked by rammus you can dash with Q + W into his Q and stun him with it
If you get ganked by Rek'Sai try to parry her knockup and you will be save
Grasp Renekton is hard lane bully but if you can parry his W or empowered Q you have a good chance to outplay him. You only have a very short window to all in him if you aren't fast enough and he gets his cooldowns back up he will outdamage you
Grasp Try to parry his empowered Q or his empowered E and don't fight him near minions if you stand in bush since he will jump through the whole lane all the time like the autist he is
Grasp or Conqueror Parry her 3rd Q or Ult shot. If you dash into a Vital you can aswell use parry since she will most likely immediatly stun into it. A lot of Riven players will try to fight lvl1 but Fiora wins it hard.
Fleet or Grasp Parry while he uses his Q and E
Fleet Most games vs Ryze we both just farm since he can run away with Phase Rush and you won't be able to catch up. Hold onto your TP until you can help out botlane or Mid
Klepto One of Fiora's easiest Matchups, he does a lot of damage earlygame but gets outscaled very fast
Conqueror or Klepto Try to parry his E if you can't just Farm up and poke him with Q. If he uses his W you can't use Q. Don't TP when he has Vision to you since even his W stops your TP.
Conqueror or Klepto Dash out of his Q since it's not worth using parry when he can use his Q too early or hold it very long and still has ult afterwards to CC you.
Fleet or Grasp Parry his E either right when it hits you or after it hit you since he will pull you immediatly and you can abuse it to stun him aswell
Conqueror Wait for him to use his Second E it's easy to react to
Conqueror or Klepto Didnt even play vs him since i picked up Fiora LUL
Conqueror Try to parry right when he comes out of ult since all of his burst is gone afterwards
Fleet Wait for Team and Farm up
Conqueror Parry his Q to get less damage and slow his attackspeed
Conqueror Use your Parry very early after he used his spin to slow his attackspeed
Conqueror Wait for him to Autoattack in bear stance parry it and it will stun him
Conqueror His dash is easy to react to, if he doesnt use it or you can sidestep is hold parry until he uses ult. If you ever get hit by his ult you can parry right before he pulls you won't die and stun with parry aswell.
Fleet Dash with Q+W into him when his bar is Red since he will immediatly Q you when you get in range. It will still heal him but a lot of his damage is gone and he will not have Q for a few seconds
Conqueror You can parry either his Q or his E but Q is easier to react to and E is kinda random. If he interrupts your Q with his E the matchups is by far harder so hold onto it until he uses E
Conqueror or Grasp Don't underrestimate his healing and attackspeed when he is low. Pick up executioners
Conqueror Parry when he engages with his E since it's his most important spell
If she uses her E you can stun her
If you get ganked wait for his 3rd Q autoattack to parry
Conqueror Don't fight near minions and parry his Tornado with Q+W since you can dash through his windwall with it. In Lowelo most yasuo's won't know that they can block parry with W.
Conqueror or Grasp Parry his Q since it's his highest burst. If you stand on the outside of his W cage while he summons it you can parry it to stun him.
Stun E or R of him when you get ganked.
If you parry while he ults and disappears from the screen you won't have the Ult mark of him on you
If you get hit by her bubble you can parry a moment before the stun procs on you and you won't get stunned but aswell stun her.
Champion Build Guide
My name is Lao Shin, I'm 21 Years old and I'm a hardstuck Toplane Main!
I've played League of Legends since season 1, and have mained toplane since season 2. Ever since season 3 I've been high Diamond and peaked Challenger multiple season's. League of Legends has always been my main game, the most fun part of the game is never learning out, there is always something new.
I switched from Riven to Fiora after playing her for a few years. Since then I never looked back and stayed at playing Fiora. Now I want to share my Opinions and help others out who want to learn her aswell.
If u have any questions or simply want to see me play, u can check out my Twitch channel. I'm trying my best to teach toplane/midlane to everyone who is interested!
Fiora is a very strong lane champ even tho she is one of the hardest scaling champs in the whole game. Basically Fiora is almost unbeatable 1v1 lategame if played correctly. But you can outplay most enemys even very early in the game.
Fiora is a bit hard to learn at first but thats the rewarding part about Champions like her. The more games you'll have on her the better results you'll see in your gameplay.
+Unique Champion Kit
+Outplay Potential when getting ganked
+High Carry Potential
-High Skill Cap
-Gets Countered Easily (bramble)
-Vulnerable to CC
Passive: Duelist's Dance
Fiora challenges nearby enemy Champions to dodge her. She calls out a direction from which she will try to strike. If she can complete her own challenge, she receives a small bonus and calls out a new direction.
R: Grand Challenge
|Flashhas a very high cooldown and you shouldn't waste it for nothing. You can use it to escape sticky situations or get a kill. Never waste it on someone who has multiple deaths already. If you are fed enough already only use it to shutdown the most important enemy or escape so you don't lose your shutdown and allow them a comback.|
|TeleportGetting Teleport advantage over the enemy Toplaner is one of the best early leads you can get. You can use it to get an advantage over the map with either Teleporting Mid when ur laner is getting ganked and the situation is a bit sticky or your botlane is getting ganked and you can grab a bunch of kills and potential drake. Lategame you always want to be on the opposite side of the map where the next objective is. If baron is up you'll be botlane and use Teleport when a fight breaks out or the enemy Toplaner is Teleporting to initiate a fight. If your Team already lost the fight before you can get there don't bother stay sidelane and get as much Gold as possible with Minions, Towers and the Enemy jungle.|
|If u play against a heavy AD teamcomp or a lot of autoattacker's like Yasuo Jax Jayce or Riven. You definitly want to pick up Plated Steelcaps|
|Mercury's Treads or how i like to call them: anti CC boots, are very important for Fiora. Crowd Controll and heal reduce are her most scarry enemy, if u get cc'd too much or need magic ressist pick them up.|
|It's still a decent second item option it offers all stats Fiora needs, now even ability haste. Sometimes when I need more HP I get Titanic Hydra|
|Fiora is a duellist champ, really strong in 1v1, 1v2's. Getting Death's Dance is still a very good option especially if you need armor. Personally I'm building it more and more as 3rd item recently since it offers great stats and the unique passive is amazing.|
|If u need some extra health and get bursted too hard or need more tenacity u might wanna buy Sterak's Gage. It's especially good vs champions like Darius Rengar Wukong Camille.|
|Guardian Angel is a great item overall, it gives u some armor a lot of AD and revives u if u die. It's perfect for teamfighting u wanna engage really deep in the enemy backline, and a lot of times u don't survive that, well with this item u do!|
|I only build this when I'm playing vs ranged matchups like Gnar Teemo or Kennen. But for those matchups It is a good item.|
Learn every Matchup and how to play it. You don't always need to win lane to win the game surviving and getting as much farm as possible is more important. Always keep an eye on the minimap and get vision for your team. When u have 75g left buy a Control Ward it won't hurt you.
The lanephase highly depends on the matchup. In some matchup's you can snowball out of controll and in some matchup's you just farm up and try to outscale the enemy, no matter if it's a hard or easy matchup u always want to have perfect CS, if u struggle with that try to improve it on custom games it's your main gold income. If u get ganked and you are lvl6 a lot of times u can kill them both but if you aren't sure about that don't risk it.
Midgame with Fiora you will beginn to split a lot and try to create as much pressure as possible for your team. Don't ever waste your Teleport for nothing you always want to be on the opposite side of the map to split and Teleport in when your team needs you.
Similar like in the Midgame you want to split and create pressure. If you have enough items and play it right you mostly can 1v2 or 1v1 dive the enemy team and secure at least one inhib. But don't overpressure it and die for nothing. You have to always keep an eye on the minimap so you don't get ganked by a few people and die/lose baron.
Dash + Parry
You can use Fiora's Q and W at the same time. This helps a lot vs certain champions as Veigar or Poppy since you can dash through their CC and stun them.
Fiora's Ult Grand Challenge Marks are Procable with Item's such as Hextech Rocketbelt Blade of the Ruined King Hextech Gunblade and Everfrost. Most likely never gonna use it but you can show off when playing with ur friends.
Flash + AA
Fiora's Passive and Ult Marks are also procable when being on the opposite side of it and flashing while autoattacking to its direction.
