10.16: t Lunge Huge update here! Fiora S tier once more!!!! The buff on Fiora's Q ability Lunge is going to make her skyrocket into being one of the top champions! You heard it here first guys! Brush up on your Fiora gameplay!! I will be maining her for a while now :p

My Other


Fiora - The God Carry
Melee, DPS, Assassin, Jungler

Synergy: Great in any team.
Jungler ganking potential: Strong
Speciality: Never die
information: In 2014 I used to be a Fiora challenger main (briefly before her re-work) and after the changes that were made to her Grand Challenge she just didn't fit my play style anymore. But it has been some time now and I've grown to love her again. Mostly by playing her with my buddy Timmy (who mains Yuumi check out his guide Yuumi & book for more about how to play Yuumi. So in this guide you can expect a detailed in depth guide with everything you have to know about how to play Fiora.

My name is Freddy!

As you may have seen (and if you haven't, now you know!) I stream League of Legends on twitch with my buddy Timmy! I have recently come to love Fiora again, that being said I highly encourage you to play her with a duo partner that plays Yuumi because in the late game having a Yuumi on top of you will make you almost immortal!I was Diamond 2 in 2014 and am currently trying to get silver bronze to Diamond on EUW in top lane. I invite you all to come hang out as we struggle our way back into high elo! Timnfreddy

We stream daily from 19:00 - 23:30 +1GMT (Brussels Time)(Times may vary but this is what we generally aim for). We have a Discord Server where you're more than welcome to come hang out or ask any questions you might have.
What can you expect from our channel? A fun duostream where Timmy and me try to tackle league together while being as interactive with the chat as we can! We also do RP giveaways to celebrate our milestones so try your luck on those!

Why did I start streaming?I studied multimedia & 3D animation and I thought this would be a good place to apply my knowledge and techniques. I got my friend Timmy to join me and we're making a go at it together! So our goal is to be partnered with twitch the end of 2020. I also feel there is not enough positive content out there for league of legends. We may not be the best (yet!) but we try to add some warmth to the cold with the Fiora and Yuumi plays.

Why Fiora??

So the big question! Why Fiora? Let's find out!

So first off my personal reason for loving Fiora is that she's been an amazing champion since her release and quite hard to balance. Which means she's either in the meta and carrying.. or not in the meta and feeding. As I've said above I've been playing her for 6 + Years now and have seen all her good and bad times.

The Main reason for me picking Fiora is her ability to destroy tanks with her Duelist's Dance on top of a great amount of utility. She has life steal, true Damage, she is a split push god, ... The biggest way she can be countered is by grievous wounds ( Executioner's Calling for example)) and of course ganks. But by far my favorite ability is that she can snowball and solo carry. You can easily shift the tide of games by split pushing and forcing the enemy team to either
- send 3 people your way allowing the rest of your team to secure objectives
- or defend against your team, allowing you to take 3 towers + Inhibitor within 1 minute because of the sheer force of her E Bladework and her Q Lunge.

With all that said, it's about time to get into the meat of this guide! Remember for any and all questions you can message me here or on the stream over at Timnfreddy on twitch I love to talk about this champion.

⚔️ ] Early Game Domination
⚔️ Split Push God
⚔️ Snowball Potential
⚔️ Unstoppable with Yuumi
⚔️ Great Champion All Elo's
⚔️ Solo Carry Potential

🗡 Countered by Executioner's Calling
🗡 long CD on Riposte
🗡 Can be kited easily
🗡 Vitals are hard to hit
🗡 No Hard CC
🗡 Often Focused by Enemies

First off: Ravenous Hydra because of its ability to lifesteal heavily. Sometimes Blade of the Ruined King can be a better choise if you are going against a heavy tank comp or find yourself being kited too heavily.

is and always will be one of your biggest damage dealers due to its ability to combine movement speed together with your sheen proc and attack speed. Overall a must have

deaths dance Death's Dance is your bread and butter, at this point with Trinity Force and Ravenous Hydra your lifesteal will be exceptional, of course this leaves you vulnerable but that can be stopped with Death's Dance allowing you to heal back up in nearly any situation, even if the enemy team focuses you hard.

is a must towards mid & late game because you will become the target of fights and getting a second chance will allow you to take out another squishy or rejoin the teamfight in a crucial moment. is an alternative to this in case you want more health in stead of rebirth.

should be built somewhere along the way. You do have quite a bit of movement with your Lunge and Teleportbut you will become susceptible to kiting real quick, once you feel this is happening its usually too late to do something about it so grab your boots early, usually while building Ravenous Hydra & Trinity Force These can always be swapped out for ninja tabis vs a full ad team if need be.

is usually my final item due to its ability to grant movement speed, extra lifesteal and of course attack speed. It can however be swapped out for a Bloodthirster or Mercurial Scimitar if the enemy team is CC-heavy or you just need that extra damage boost.

Must have
Flash Get away / Engage:
Flash is a must have on nearly all champs, but it really does help a lot on Fiora. It will help you get that final vital to secure the kill, or help you get away if the enemy jungler decides you look too dangerous.
Teleport (Lane Presence) : Teleport can be debated and changed out for Ignite as you see fit. I personally balance between the 2. The benefit for Teleport is that when you split push you can help out your allies in case of teamfight or backdoor an inhibitor if you play your cards right.
Ignite (Lane Presence) : Ignite is your other option, you want to run this if you feel you want to snowball hard and early or if you're up against a champion with a lot of healing. (If you're up against one of these but you don't want to run ignite, invest in an Executioner's Calling early and just run teleport)
Soul Eater
💎 Fiora identifies the weak spots - or vitals - in the defenses of all enemy champions she comes close to. If she manages to attack her enemy's weak spot, Fiora deals 2.5% (+4.5% per 100 bonus attack damage) of the target's maximum Health as bonus true damage for that attack while gaining 40-115 (at levels 1-18) Health and 20 (+10 × Grand Challenge's rank)% movement speed which decays over 1.75 seconds. Fiora reveals a new weak spot whenever she attacks one, or if 15 seconds pass without it being attacked.
💎 Fiora's main ability is Lunge which is what you will want to spam in order to hit your vitals
💎 Q Fiora Ability: Lunge
Range: 400
Cooldown: 16 / 14 / 12 / 10 / 8 Cost: 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40
Fiora lunges in a target direction before striking a nearby enemy, dealing 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 (+0.95 / 1.0 / 1.05 / 1.1 / 1.15 per bonus attack damage) physical damage and applying on-hit effects. Lunge prioritizes enemy champions, and tries to hit enemy weak spots.

If Lunge hits an enemy, its cooldown is reduced by 60%.

💎 ACTIVE: This is Fiora's bread and butter. Her Q Lunge is your gap closer, and it becomes almost spammable if you have some Cooldown reduction. Its great to get over walls and escape and a great getaway when getting ganked.
💎 Fiora Fiora enters a defensive stance, parrying all damage, debuffs, and hard crowd control abilities for the next 0.75 seconds.

After she's done parrying, Fiora attacks in a target direction, dealing 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 / 270 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies in a line while slowing the movement and attack speed of the first enemy champion she strikes by 50% for 2 seconds. If Fiora parries at least one immobilizing effect, Riposte stuns the target instead..

💎 Riposte is what sets you apart from most other top laners. its a mechanic that is purely based on your instincts as a player and your reaction speed. If you are quick you can use Riposte and hard CC any enemy champion with their own ability. Its exceptionally great vs Cyclone from Wukong and Darius Noxian Guillotine

💎 Fiora gains 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90% bonus attack speed and 25 bonus range on her next two basic attacks. The first cannot crit but slows her target by 30% for 1 second, while the second is guaranteed to crit, dealing 160 / 170 / 180 / 190 / 200% damage..

💎 Bladework is a great spell for both pushing towers aswel as incredible damage if you can use the second proc of your Bladework on a vital you will watch pretty much any opponent die .
Grand Challenge

Passive: Duelist's Dance's bonus movement speed is increased to 20 / 25 / 30%.

Active:💎 Fiora targets an enemy champion, highlighting all four of their Vitals and granting Duelist's Dance's movement speed bonus for the next 8 seconds. If she's able to destroy all four weak spots, or if she destroys at least one before her target dies, Fiora creates a large zone under her enemy that heals Fiora and her allied champions for 80 / 110 / 140 (+0.6 per bonus attack damage) Health per second over the next 2 seconds, plus 1 second for every Vital Fiora strikes beyond the first.

💎 Grand Challenge is Fiora's Ultimate. Now this is an ability to watch out for! Your opponent will gain 4 vitals each of which you want to proc in order to make the heal happen. Now What I usually do is Proc 1 vital than use Grand Challenge to proc a second vital and continue from there. Usually you will not have to proc all vitals in order to kill your enemy.
| | Cooldown: 15 | Cost: 0 |
Now although this is not an active ability your rotation will always start by proccing the first vital on your enemy.
| Range: 400 | Cooldown: 16 / 14 / 12 / 10 / 8 | Cost: 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 |
what you want to do is proc the first vital with your Lunge then follow it up with a Bladework to slow and depending on your vital location either hit the vital with your second hit off Bladework or use Grand Challenge
| Range: 500 | Cooldown: 110 / 90 / 70 | Cost: 100 |
Grand Challenge is procced because your target has now taken a sufficient amount of damage off the 2 vitals you have hit and now its time to hit the left overs. Use Lunge to reach your difficult vitals and focus your auto attacks on the ones you can normally hit.
| Range: 750 | Cooldown: 24 / 22 / 20 / 18 / 16 | Cost: 50 |
I can't really tell you where to use Riposte as it will differ on every fight. of course you want to utilize its ability to cancel out enemies Crowd Control and reflect it back at them. Just be aware of the enemy you are playing against and their play style. Normally an enemy will use his Crowd control around the same time every time.

First things first there are 2 ways to play. Long Game or Snowball.

Slow Burn

first lets go over "Slow Burn" as it is the safest. Doran's Blade tank or no tank you will poke through them with vitals either way. What you want to watch out for is it is really easy in the early game to get caught up going for vitals and leaving yourself exposed. So unless you are super confident you can take on the enemy and a potential jungler I would play defensive warding up and playing lane phase perfectly. Fiora is a great farmer and with a few Long Sword you are going to be last hitting easily. Make sure to provide some wards a sneaky enemy jungle ward never hurts 😭. Either way farm up and only go for the kill if you have a backup jungler or you are 100% Confident. Then of course we got our snowball Fiora. In this case I take Ignite and focus on killing as much as farming. That sneaky deep ward is a must and the second your Laner plays defensive you go jungle/ mid hunting... until you can dive him haha.
This is crucial! IF your enemy builds anti-lifesteal you will want to go Sheen for more damage output to continue snowballing. If they do not I suggest Ravenous Hydra and watch at the sheer life steal this monster of a champion will bring to the table.
Either one of these will lead you into 2 ways to play late game.

Mid Game

Now for the mid game things get a little tricky and again its going to be up to you to make the decisions as to whether or not to make the following choices:
1. You are fed but your team has been feeding: Then you will want to split push you and 1v1 or 2v1 whoever they send your way and hope for your team to secure objectives until late.
2. You are fed and your team is fed: In this case I would suggest team fighting and securing objectives as a unit.
3. You Fed and Your team fed: Probably the worst case scenario you could have. In this case I would suggest farming safely and securing as much vision & jungle objectives as you possibly can.

Which brings us to the much anticipated late game. Now at this point you should be more then capable of destroying pretty much any enemy champion. Again we are faced with a few scenarios. Either way baron and dragon now are the biggest priority.
1. You are fed /team is not & baron & Teleport is up. You will want to split the lane furthest away from baron making sure your team knows to secure the baron play when they send 1 - 2 your way you will either kill and push or if you see enemy team making a play for baron you will Teleport in and join the teamfight.💎(unless nexus is exposed in which case you will just end)💎
2. You are fed & your team is fed: Ideal scenario of course, Now although you can still apply the safe strategy mentioned above I would personally camp a bush around an objective with my team and go in for a teamfight, either damaging the enemy team and picking a few off allowing us to go for baron or elder dragon or just ending the game all toghether.

Late Game

Prowling Projectile

So first off Prowling Projectile
It workes wonders with Lunge as it will not only slow the enemy but allow you to catch up but to speed run at them.
Lunge will allow Yuumi to get close enough every time to hit her Prowling Projectile allowing her and you to poke out at range.


Duelist's Dance
Then we have You and Me! Which will just give Fiora that much more damage to hit her Duelist's Dance vitals. You will be amazed at the amount of damage you can do with Yuumi in the mid and late game.


Death's Dance
So ofcourse the Zoomies work excellent with Fiora's lane sustain and her Duelist's Dance's lifesteal capability, BUT with Death's Dance burning you slowly her heal will be just too good. Ontop of that with Ravenous Hydra you got another amazing lifesteal making you unkillable

final chapter

Grand Challenge
That much needed crowd control that Fiora misses Yuumi supplies with Final Chapter allowing you easily reach all vitals on Grand Challenge
