The guide was last updated on May 27th 2017, during the 7.10 patch. I assume the author must've forgotten to update the title to reflect this, however.

I have a question. Why you use Attack Speed quint instead of Attack Damage one?

Hi EraAegis,

Can you update the guide to 7.11 please. There are some outdated stuff and it's really confusing me.

Thank you

So, I just played my 1st Fiora game, I called top first but then a Garen autolocked(******* Garen mains, think they can take any lane that has already been called) so I had to go mid. I was doing pretty good against a veigar, but then jungle and botlane stayed in my lane from 10mins+ before a turret was destroyed. It was 4v1 in my lane, and I had a cs disadvantage, and there was a Morgana, and each time i'd try to pick off one of their squishies, Morg would root me for what seems like forever, then Brand would start his combo, and so on and so forth. Other than switching lanes, HOW do I deal with games like this?

Hey CwasCard,

Sometimes, there are simply games that you cannot win. However, if you see something undesirable in champion select, such as somebody taking your role, or if you're forced into a role you don't want to play, you can simply dodge the game, especially if it's a normal game. Going into a game you don't want to play will make people tilted, remember that this is just a game, you're supposed to have fun, don't take it too seriously.

Instead of focussing on one bad game experience, you can simply either take a break or play again, take what you learned from that game however little they are, and try to improve your skills, do understand that if even through a lot of games, you find yourself unable to improve, you should look to do a little bit of reflecting on yourself instead of focussing on the few games where you got "trolled".

And for what happened in that game for you, you should try to build a QSS earlier, build Mercury Treads so you don't get rooted/stunned for too long, and be more careful and aware of the enemies' positionings before you engage, you should find yourself in a favourable position such as you catching off an enemy while the others are all on the other side of the wall etc. Sometimes, you simple have to be more patient and wait for them to split up to maybe chase your teammate, going straight in 1v5 will very likely result in you being focussed down very quickly.

I really think that tiamat should be more significant. It helps you auto attack reset which is really important for trades and fights. Even with less attack damage, it can still give your more dps. What do you think ?

Hey Sylnister,

I am going to assume that you are talking about rushing Tiamat first as opposed to grabbing long swords and pickaxe, because I do recommend Ravenous Hydra as a first item most of the time, and that its passive and active help Fiora push waves easier. There are a couple of reasons why I don't believe you should rush Tiamat.

First, Tiamat is not really an auto attack reset, it is an ability that has a 10s CD. In an extended trade where if you had a pickaxe and long sword instead, it will mean that every lunge will deal about 17 more damage, every auto will deal 15 more damage, your second e would deal about 24 more damage, even your vital will deal more damage. Pickaxe + Long sword simply gives more raw power since your abilities scale really well with the extra AD.

Secondly, as for short trades, with pickaxe and long sword, assuming that you lunged for a vital, then AA->E->E, you will still be dealing 71 + 0.675% max health as damage, which is just about 20 damage short of if you had Tiamat and you used the active in very close range.

Thirdly, while Tiamat can be a tad bit more useful in short trades, you lose out on damage during an all-in. And as mentioned in the guide, if you rush it first item, you will lose the opportunity to freeze a wave when you can, so if you already had a lead, say you had a first blood, and the wave is pushing towards you, if you recall, buy a Tiamat and teleport back to lane, you will have no choice than to push, which means you won't be able to extend the lead as well.

However, if the lane is mostly going to be even, or you can't apply pressure in that matchup, like Malphite, you can rush Tiamat first and just try to shove the lane as fast as possible to farm up. Since you as Fiora are not really dependant on kills early, there is nothing wrong with just pushing in every wave as fast as possible and then do some warding and roam.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

so how come you dont use yomuu's anymore? also I was g5 last season now im stuck in silver just off the top of your head is there anything you think I should improve on to be a better Fiora player?

Hey RussianJug,

I don't recommend Youmuu's anymore for a couple of reasons:

Firstly, I think that with the nerf to its attack speed and attack damage, the only utility it provides that other items do not is the movement speed buff, which, although helps with initiating fights and chasing enemies, is pretty hard to utilize properly because it does not actually help with killing enemies. You would have to know how to pick fights for the item to help, which makes it no longer a recommended item.

Secondly, with the AD nerf to Black Cleaver, if you go BC and GB, it would mean that you miss out on quite a bit of offensive stat. Both Maw and BT give more AD and sustain(when Maw procs), and are both better suited to keeping you alive if you happen to enter a wrong fight.


Next, I believe that no doubt you worked hard on getting Gold last season, but do remember that the current season only started a couple of months, you still have a lot of time for you to improve and climb. Practising is the only way to get better as a player, you just have to dedicate a lot of time to it. Don't think about why you cannot get back to your previous rank, think about what you can do to improve so that you can climb back to your previous rank.

On the other hand, I do believe there is something you can do to try to improve.

Firstly, you can try to rewatch your gameplays to look out for any mistakes you can find, and then ACTIVELY remind yourself during your games not to make them again, until it becomes common sense for you. i.e overextending, chasing into fog of war.

Secondly, you can have your games recorded for somebody else to do a vod for you, I know a Discord server here that provides free vod reviews for players who submit their plays.

I hope that these will help you improve and good luck in your climb.

Thanks for the advice I truly appreciate it. I usually win lane even when the enemy top laner takes ignite but what screws me over is when the enemy jungler ganks so I definitely have to work on warding and not over extending. Thanks for the help :)

How does the Black cleaver change Affect fiora? Whats your opinion on Trinity fiora

Hello Usni,

I have already done the damage comparison between BC and TF about a week ago. You can read about it here.

Based on the damage chart, I do believe that BC is still the way to go, considering that BC got its damage reduced but still manages to outdamage TF.

Hey jhoijhoi,

Thank you very much for your comment! I wrote this guide with assistance from your "Making a Guide", so I guess I should thank you here too.

Hey there nice guide! I was wondering if I could a have a little more in-depth information on how to deal with pantheon because I find myself experiencing hell when against him. He constantly spams his q at me and when I try to proc vitals his passive just blocks them. When I hug turret he's still able to get q's off on me forcing me to recall and with jg help I still end up dying. Help pls!!

EraAegis (4) | February 7, 2017 10:55am
Hey Fitzky,

Actually I have the matchup here, I just haven't updated it yet:

The trick to this lane is to simply wait and play really passive. There are no situations where you can out poke or out trade a Pantheon before level 6 in a normal circumstance. At level 1 – 5, you should look to staying way out of his range as to not get poked by his Spear Shot. But you should still get close enough to be able to get the experience. If he overextends to zone you from even getting the experience from the minions that are about to die, you should however look for a quick trade as the minions are killed to get the experience and quickly get away.

Keeping your health at full is very important in this matchup, as it prevents Pantheon from triggering the passive on his Heartseeker Strike, and prevents him from tower diving you as you are trying to cs. Losing a few cs is fine for early game as surviving it should be the main goal of the matchup, and the lane will push towards you eventually, allowing you a few cs.

When you are cs-ing under tower, you should look to auto attack the melee creeps and lunging to get the ranged minions, that way, Pantheon will not be able to poke you as easily as you will be safe under the turret's range. If he oversteps and gets his passive shot off by the tower, you can, if you are confident, quickly turn it around and do a quick trade and even kill him, but that requires you to have full health and that you have to maximize your damage.

After level 6, things get a bit easier because you now have kill potential on him. But you still have to remember that you should not get close enough when you are not ready to trade to not get poked and withered down before an opportunity comes. There are a few key points to note here when fighting against a Pantheon. These apply only to after level 6:

First, you should always not try to hit a vital when Aegis Protection is up, because it will refresh the CD of the vital, but it will not deal any damage, therefore negating one of your passive's damage. You should always try to hit away the Aegis Protection first, with either a Lunge or an auto attack, and then move to hit the vital. The same goes with your Bladework, if you hit Pantheon while he has Aegis Protection up, it will not have any effect.

Secondly, if he engages on you first with his Aegis of Zeonia, that is you have not used any spells or started attacking him yet, it becomes very easy to turn around and fight him as he just wasted one of his passive and the tool that lets him wait for CD during a fight. If he stuns you to engage, you should always look to turn around and do your spell rotation.

Thirdly, same with pre-6, if his passive gets shot off by a turret or a cannon minion, you should always look to fight him as he is without one passive. But with your ult, you can quickly capitalize on this mistake and kill him, as having one less passive means you can get your ult vitals off one attack earlier, which is important for you to kill him before he does.

Assuming that you did lane decently, and that you did not give up too many advantages, you should see that you will catch up in cs in the mid game and be able to apply much more pressure than he can. But you should always alert your team when Pantheon is level 6 and is missing from the lane, as he can also snowball from other lanes if he cannot snowball from you, and you should look to punish his roam by trying to keep the wave constantly pushed and take the turret when you can.
