Riposte
Cooldown: 10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 seconds
Bonus AD: 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 (+5 per lvl)
Magic Damage: 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+1.0 per ability power)

Burst of Speed
Cooldown: 15 / 14 / 13 / 12 / 11 seconds
Attack Speed: 60 / 75 / 90 / 105 / 120% (+15% per lvl)
Movement Speed: 7 / 9 / 11 / 13 / 15% (+2% per lvl)

Judging from the above stats, which should be maxed earlier?

depends on where you're going. but i'd say bos > riposte. the magic damage is minor when you aren't building ap (which you shouldnt be).

Honestly, when she was free, I was maxing reposte.
Cooldown drops faster for 1v1 situations, I get more AD so I can last hit easier.

Of course, I only get 1 point in lunge early because the damage is pitiful and it's only useful for mobility.

Riposte is just better for laning, and even jungling.

Blocking 1 attack and dealing damage is the important thing.
Any use of BoS if you cant even attack?

When she was free I played her with maxing Riposte first. Ranged AD carries were put at a disadvantage and farming was so much easier.

Riposte over Bos in most cases. The bonus AD give you a edge ofer the enemy and the activ basicly gives you one extra hit one them and them one less. Vs certain champs like Ryze or Vlad(basicly all caster type tops) I max Bos to stick to them and get dmg done. They don't AA you and a big chunck of their dmg comes in burst and you need to get hits done fast if you even want to dmg them. But still if the jungler borthers you more then your top lane you might chang that according to him.
Thanks lgnition for the Sig.

Always Riposte first. Last hitting is easier and your Lunge actually hurts for the first 2 levels.

Even if you're against Ryze or Vladimir, it can help you last hit under tower or harass.

Weird, when I played her I maxed Burst of Speed first. The whole point of the ability is to get a massive burst of DPS just by building a bit of AD and having AD runes/masteries. It's really hard to trade with Fiora when she hits you like 5 times incredibly fast, then speeds away when she goes on cooldown.

And seriously guys, last-hitting with Fiora is super easy. You shouldn't base the skill you max on the fact that it makes you screw up less with farming. I could be wrong about the skill priority, but last-hitting ease is definitely not a factor.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

Depends who you're fighting honestly. AP would prob max Burst of Speed while AD would max Riposte. Either way, maxing Riposte just brings it to 6 cool-down and allowing you to take like hardly any damage

Burst of Speed is semi-useless early game I feel.

The main point of early attack speed on Fiora is to get stacks on her passive in small duels so she eventually comes out on top.

Your main harass combo is Q > W > E > AA > AA which brings you to 4 stacks on duelist already, assuming they retaliate through your Riposte active. The second portion of Q can be used to target enemy minions to escape.

More AAs, although helpful, isn't necessary, and her burst from that combo should be higher than having a few extra AAs.
