Summoner Spells Back to Top

Fiora Abilities.png


12.png is the standard summoner for top laners, Fiora is no exception. This summoner spell allows her to make cross map plays or to teleport back to lane to grab cs that you would likely miss.

 

4.png is the best summoner spell in the game and almost no champion goes without it. It provides gap close or to escape from bad situations.

New Runes Back to Top

Fiora New Runes.png


Standard

Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=64 - You can fight minions in lane then fioraq.png the enemy champion once it is ready to proc. You will get free permanent health and do some poke damage. This rune is really good in lane as it allows you to win almost any trades early.

Bone%20Plating.png?width=64 - Solid rune overall. It helps reduce the damage you take in trades.

Revitalize.png?width=64 - Fiora heals a lot and this just helps that out even more. There is really no other rune in this row that is very good.


Sorcery - 

 

Celerity.png?width=64 - This rune gives bonus movement speed and AD based on your current bonus movement speed. This synergy with your passive. Movement speed is very good to maneuver properly in fights to hit vitals.

Nimbus%20Cloak.png?width=64 - Nice rune once you have your ultimate. The movement speed is really nice to move around to hit the vitals. It also works with Celerity.png?width=32 to give even more ad.


Conqueror Page - Run this page vs tanks 

 13003d6fa9393a112.png?width=64- This runes allows Fiora to deal so much true damage. This rune is better against tanks than squishies because it cannot convert your already true damage from vital hits to more true damage. So basically 


Triumph.png?width=64- Pretty good rune to help get multi-kills in teamfights or even just help with diving.


Coup%20De%20Grace.png?width=64 - This rune helps finish off targets and gives bonus ad once you get a kill.

Fiora Abilities.png


                                                Passive - Duelist's Dance  fiorapassive.png

This is 114.png’s signature ability. Vitals are very important to hit for trades and skirmishes. She deals true damage, gets movement speed and heals whenever she hits a vital.

02b0f04655f394b967c69c599c521cdb.png

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Q -Lunge fioraq.png

This ability is your bread and butter. It is good for everything. Use it to hit vitals and/or re-position to hit others. You can also use it to dodge abilities or escape.

2afc3f4da9929ae5037381877888572d.png

 


                                                       W -Riposte fioraw.png

Many players hate 114.png because of this ability. It makes her immune to all damage(except turrets), crowd controls and debuffs like ignite. It slows and cripples the first championhit or stun them for 1.5 seconds if you parried a hard cc. In summary very strong basic ability.

bcd0ef55fab2fb4545654bbff00acd2a.png


 

                                                          E - Bladework fiorae.png

Use this ability to auto reset for more burst during trades. It slows and the second attack is a guaranteed modified crit. The slow is good to help more around your target to hit more vitals.

44455ffa4410425d615a4bddab2870f5.png 


 

                                                R - Grand Challenge fiorar.png



Your ultimate can be used to win many fights. It gives movement speed when you are near your target and reveals all 4 vitals. Once your target dies once you hit at least 1 vital or you hit all 4, you create a healing zone for your entire team.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard starting set
    Defensive starting item set. This set gives more sustain against poke matchups.
    This start makes you recover mana to spam more abilities against some tanky matchups.

Core Items

    These 2 items are your core early items. Build them first before finishing other items.
    These items are your core completed items. They give everything she needs. Ravenous gives huge ad and lifesteal while trinity force has sheen proc that works with your Q.
    Go either 1 based off what you need. Ninja tabi vs AD champions or mercury's treads for teams with annoying cc.
    Full build example

Situational Items

    This can be built for Magic resist instead of sterak’s gage if the enemy has a lot of burst magic damage. Hexdrinker can be built early to be built into this based off the matchup.
    Built this if the enemy has a lot of physical crit damage.
    This item is very situational. Try it if you want to have some fun or so.

Fiora Items.png


Start off the game with 1 of the starting item sets. On your first back try to have 1200 gold for 3077.png. This will give you wave clear and burst damage in trades with the active. Then build an3044.png afterwards. The reason is to get the movement speed and flat hp. The movement speed helps to maneuver around champions to hit their vitals. The hp is great for buying enough time to hit another vital to heal or proc your ult for even more healing. Afterwards, work on finishing up these items. Go 3074.png then 3078.png. You can build 3078.png first if on the third recall you can buy a 3057.png3074.png gives lifesteal and a huge amount of AD. Remember, the more ad you have the more true damage your vital does. 3078.pnghas 3057.pngin it which works with your fioraq.png because it is an on-hit ability. I

The rest of items are situational and you build them in any order based off what you need and can buy. Usually, you would build 3026.png next. It gives a second life which is really nice in team fights while being very cheap to buy. 3812.png gives further Lifesteal and high AD. With this, you can dive your laner and heal up quickly. You can build 3053.png  third and then 3065.png or 3143.png next based off what you need.

 

WHY NO BLACK CLEAVER? 

3071.png

3071.png has been nerfed. It gives less AD now the build path was changed a bit. When the old runes were removed 114.png got her base ad up as compensation for the 9 flat ad runes you would take before. This means that 3057.png 3078.pngdoes more damage because the on-hit from it scales off your base damage.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

This matchup can go either way. If you keep up pressure on him with fioraq.png and hitting vitals you should be fine. Use fioraw.png when he uses his aatroxq.png. Watch out for his passive, it can make him strong enough to win fights against you. Fight him when his passive is low.

VS

Akali

Hard

84.png can use her akalismokebomb.png to hide when you ult her. This makes it frustrating to fight her. You fioraq.png can hit her while she is in her akalismokebomb.png though. Pressure her early so she cannot get to sustain from her passive.

VS

Camille

Easy

164.png normally takes Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32 and proc it with her camillew.png. Just fioraq.png her whenever she uses it on you. Save your fioraw.png for when she camillee.png and comes at you. Watch out for baits to make you waste your fioraw.png.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

114.png is good at taking down tanks. Parry his rupture.png or walk out of it if you are silenced by his feralscream.png. When you are low careful of his feralscream.png - feast.png combo. You cant fioraw.png his feast.png once you are silenced.

VS

Darius

Hard

I have to put this matchup as hard because of how 122.png is built these days. He becomes really tanky and hard to kill while being able to kill you. In lane you beat him because you can just fioraq.png whenever he uses his dariuscleave.pngfioraw.png his dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png when you dive in on him. Try to get the timing right so you can do this successfully. Try to stomp him early before he gets tanky.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

36.png does little threat to you. Just bully him in lane and dive him with your jungler with your lead. If he becomes too hard to kill consider getting 3123.png or just roam to make plays elsewhere.

VS

Galio

Easy

3.png is pretty easy to beat. His abilities are very telegraphed so parry / dodge them. You can solo kill him easily compared to the other tanks. It is best to stick to fighting him than roaming because then he would be able to use his galior.png to join his team.

VS

Gangplank

Hard

41.png just spams gangplankqwrapper.png on you procing Kleptomancy.png?width=32 and poking you. He has no hard cc to parry and he can just gangplankw.png your fioraw.png’s slow and cripple. Try to not let him get free gangplankqwrapper.pngs off. Call for your jungler’s help to set up ganks/dives on him. He is quite easy to gank.

VS

Garen

Easy

Easy matchup for 114.png. You out damage him always. Parry his garenq.png and just bully him.

VS

Gnar

Medium

150.png can be annoying to lane against. His range and gnarq.png makes him poke you a lot. Avoid getting poked down. When he transforms engage on him. His wallop is very telegraphed allowing you to parry it easily. Once you get a few levels you can fight him and run him down for the kill.

VS

Illaoi

Medium

420.png can be hard to deal with as a champion but you have abilities that can deal with her. Your fioraq.png can dodge her tentacles and her illaoie.png. You can even parry her illaoie.png instead or tentacles. Just don’t get hit by her illaoie.png and you will be fine. Don’t fight her near where she ults unless you are way stronger than her.

VS

Irelia

Easy

You can beat 39.png easily. Just bully her in lane. Bait out her ireliae.png and fioraw.png it to stun her back. This will lead to solo kills and good trades. If you can dodge her ireliae.png thats pretty good too because she can't reset her ireliaq.png

VS

Jax

Medium

This is a skill matchup. His jaxcounterstrike.png last 2 seconds and can be recast 1 second earlier. Your fioraw.png last 0.75 seconds. It is up to you to predict when he will use his jaxcounterstrike.png. His jaxcounterstrike.png can dodge your fioraq.png also.

VS

Jayce

Hard

126.png does a lot of damage while being ranged. He can also melee stance to use up his other spells and win trades. Wait for openings and just fioraq.png him for trades. There are many things you can use your fioraw.png to block. It is based off what is most important to block at the moment. In order it would be his jaycethunderingblow.pngknockback - jaycetotheskies.png - empowered shockblast.

VS

Kayle

Easy

You can bully her easily in lane and win this matchup. Use your fioraw.png when engaging to slow her attack speed making it hell for her to trade back.

VS

Kennen

Medium

This matchup is annoying. It is hard for the 85.png to die to you. He can kite and run away when you engage on him . The only way to beat him is a well-timed fioraw.png when he stuns you. Consider getting mercs if they enemy team isn't full ad elsewhere.

VS

Kled

Easy

You hard counter 240.png. Most of his trade potential comes from his kledq.png and you can parry it and stun him. Your fioraw.png also slows attack speed making it difficult fro him to remount.

VS

Malphite

Hard

54.pngis the hardest tank matchup. He can slow attack speed and absorb a lot of damage. The best thing to do against tanks you cannot kill is to roam and look for plays elsewhere.

VS

Maokai

Medium

57.png can be builled in lane. His CC abilities and telegraphed so you can block them with fioraw.png. He can absorb a lot of damage and become hard to kill. Like all tanks that you can’t kill just roam and look for plays elsewhere.

VS

Mordekaiser

Easy

You can bully him in lane and beat him. Try to fight him when his passive is low. You can block his third mordekaisermaceofspades.png damage or his mordekaiserchildrenofthegrave.png if timed correctly. His mordekaisersyphonofdestruction.png steals hp so care when fighting him near a bunch of minions.

VS

Nasus

Hard

75.png is hard to kill because he can poke with nasuse.png and wave clear. Even when you engage on him he can just nasusw.png to slow you and your attack speed. Trade him early and try to burn out his mana. Try to get help from your jungler to deal with him. He is weak to ganks and can be killed early easily.

VS

Olaf

Easy

You outscale him really hard. His best phase is his laning phase which he just throws olafaxethrowcast.png to harass enemy laners and go in for kills. You can focus on dodging these then go in. He is vulnerable once he throws out an axe because he will have to go over to it to pick it up to reduce his olafaxethrowcast.png cd.

VS

Ornn

Easy

His abilities are pretty telegraphed so you can dodge/parry them easily. Bully him and try to kill him. Do not take free damage from his ornnw.png. It is best to use fioraq.png to dodge the last breath of it to avoid getting brittle. If he becomes hard to kill just roam and make plays elsewhere.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

He can bully you in all day in lane. This matchup is cancer. Ask for help from your team to deal with him. Ping your teammates to back off when he is missing when he has his pantheonrjump.png up. If you can get level 6 and not too far behind go block his pantheonw.png with fioraw.png then follow up on a kill on him.

VS

Poppy

Easy

78.png can be bullied quite hard in lane. Her poppyr.png is telegraphed as well so you can just block it and stun her. Her poppyw.png can block your fioraq.png. If she becomes too hard to kill just push the wave and look for plays elsewhere.

VS

Renekton

Easy

58.png can be hard because of his high burst damage. However, with the new runes he has become quite weak and you can bully him. You also outscale him hard. Try to predict his W and block it with 

fioraw.png to stun him. Avoid fighting him when his bar is full to reduce his trade potential back onto you.

VS

Rengar

Easy

He can cheese you early on with his high damage from his empowered abilities. Once you get your fioraw.png you can just block his rengarq.png damage and slow his attack speed and win the trades and kill him. Just be careful of his empowered abilities.

VS

Riven

Medium

This is a skill matchup. To win this matchup bait out her rivenfeint.png then go in for trades. Use your fioraw.png on her third riventricleave.png. You can sometimes use it on rivenmartyr.png if the situation is better for that. You have to predict her rivenmartyr.png though, she usually will use it after her rivenfeint.png. You can block her rivenfengshuiengine.png instead of those if the situation deems fit for that instead.

VS

Rumble

Easy

You can kill 68.png during the laning phase and dive him. Just don’t stand in his rumbleflamethrower.png and take free poke. fioraw.png his first rumblegrenade.png to block the slow to chase him down.

VS

Shen

Easy

The only thing you need to watch out for is his shene.png to be blocked by yourfioraw.png . His shenw.png is the other ability that you need to watch out for. Just save your autos when he uses it. Pressure him in lane and bully him hard.

VS

Singed

Medium

Once you get a lead on him you can solo kill him easily. If he has a lead then he becomes a problem. Stack up early with your team in your jungle to catch him out if he tries to proxy. Try to avoid fighting him when his insanitypotion.png is on. Try to predict his fling.png and stun him.

VS

Sion

Easy

14.png abilities are telegraphed and you can dodge/parry them easily. Poke and bully him in lane. His base stats are quite low. You can parry his sionq.png for a easy stun if he charges it long. If he becomes too hard to kill you can push and roam and look plays elsewhere.

VS

Teemo

Hard

This matchup is hard. You can’t deal with him on your own unless he positions badly pre - 6. That would require you to fioraw.png his blindingdart.png. Ask for help from your team to deal with him.

VS

Trundle

Easy

You can bully him and win easily. Just don’t fight him when he uses trundlepain.png. Try to bait it out first. You should block his first trundletrollsmash.png with fioraw.png to prevent him from reducing your attack damage.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

You can bully him early. Just don’t fight him when his rage bar is near full. That means he will crit more often and win trades. Use the movement speed from your vital hits to kite out his undyingrage.png or chase him down to finish him off.

VS

Urgot

Hard

6.pngUrgot is tanky and very hard to kill. You also need to move around him to hit his vitals which means you’re going to run into all his shotgun legs. Try to get help from your jungler to take him down. He is quite easy to gank once you get in front of him and block his urgote.png.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

This guy is weak early but if he gets a lead can be a serious problem. You need to take advantage of his weak early levels. Avoid going in for trades when his passive is almost full. You can fioraw.png his vladimire.png and his vladimirhemoplague.png to win all ins.

VS

Wukong

Medium

This monkey can be tricky to lane against. He can trade with his monkeykingnimbus.png - monkeykingdoubleattack.png combo then monkeykingdecoy.png to prevent you from trading back. You need to bully him early on with your fioraq.png. Get him low so he thinks twice about trading with you.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Early on you have the advantage. You can bully him in lane and kill him. You need to fioraw.png his third yasuoqw.png. They will not throw it out but rather yasuodashwrapper.pngyasuoqw.png in most cases. They can yasuowmovingwall.png it though which makes this matchup tilts towards 157.png if he is really good with the champion.

VS

Yorick

Easy

You can beat him easily. You out damage and outscale him. He only wins trade when he has his ghouls around him then he uses his yoricke.png. So only go for fights when he has no ghouls. His yorickr.png also summons ghouls so bait it out first then kill them and the maiden first.

Trading Back to Top

Fiora Trading.png


When trading with 114.png you want to hit the enemy vitals with your fioraq.png. You can just fioraq.png early on just for some trade damage. Once you’re level 2-3 you can go for longer trades. When you have E up you want to fioraq.png - Auto - fiorae.png - auto - auto. Your fiorae.png is an auto attack reset so use it after an auto attack to maximize burst damage. Throw your fioraw.png in the mix to block key abilities from your opponent. Remember it slows and reduces their attack speed. This can make you win trades easily.

Your fiorar.png can be used to win many fights. The best way to use it is to hit 1-2 vitals then activate it. That would be 5-6 vitals in total if you hit them all. Do not be scared of turning a fight with your fiorar.png. Remember that each vital hit gives you health. This can buy time to get off all 4 to activate the healing zone and turn a fight.

 

Once you have 3077.png it further increase your burst damage. Use it during your trade combo after auto attacking with your first fiorae.png.

Lane Phase - Mid Game - Late Game Back to Top

Fiora Phases.png


Lane phase

You want to trade with your fioraq.png and hit vitals. Go for longer trades based off your matchup. If you out damage them then you can go for longer ones. Get 3077.png first and 3044.png second. Once you have these 2 items look for all-ins on your opponent. Remember to ask for help from your jungler. If you can secure a kill early then you should be able to snowball the game through that 1 kill.


Mid Game

During Mid game you want to be focusing on splitting and duelling your opponent. 114.png is really good at 1v1 so this is her strength. She can take turrets quickly with 3078.png. Use the sheen procs to take turrets faster. You will need to group at times with your team. Once you get 3026.png you become a serious threat in team fights. You want to split on the opposite side of the objective. This means if your team is aiming for baron you should be bot lane. If your team is aiming for dragon you should be top lane.

 

Late Game

During the late game, there will be less team fighting. You want to focus on killing your opponent in the side lane. The death timers are longer at this point so 1 kill can mean baron for your team with the pressure you will be creating. You want to keep an eye on your minimap to know where the enemy team is. Once you know where they are you can go for the 1v1 with little risk. If you are strong enough you could win 1v2 if their jungler comes. But at this point, you are doing your job. Drawing pressure for your team to take objectives. Try not to die though. You lose pressure when you are dead for the next 50 seconds. Sometimes splitting may not be the best route and you will need to team fight.

Team Fighting Back to Top

Fiora Team Fight.png


In team fights, you want to take them in mainly 2 ways.

 

Diving the backline

If you can get to flank the enemy team and get onto their backline you can disrupt them and kill their squishy damage dealers. If you feel that killing their backline is the best route to winning the team fight then go for it. If you are too weak to kill their backline or feel like peeling your backline is the best route then help your team instead.

 

Peeling your backline

Now some people are wondering like how can 114.png peel she has like no cc. Well, peeling is not only about ccing champions. Just killing the targets that are a threat to your backline is peeling. You can take down tankier targets better than most because of your passive. Saving your backline is better if yours are stronger than theirs and you need yours to survive to win the team fight. Remember you can fiorar.png their frontline and kill them to create the healing zone for your team.

 

Sometimes you can just mix these 2 ways during a team fight to get the best result. For instance, you could start off fighting their backline then run back to your team and switch to attacking their frontline.

Tips and Tricks Back to Top

Fiora Tips.png


Remember that 114.png heals whenever you hit a vital so don’t be scared to turn some clutch fights.

 

Your fioraw.png can hit vitals so sometimes you can use it to hit a vital you can’t reach while slowing your target.

 

Sometimes using your fioraw.png to block big damage abilities is better than blocking a hard cc ability. For example, it may be best to parry 122.png’s ult instead of his dariusaxegrabcone.png. It is up to you to decide which action is more suitable in that instance.

 

You can fioraw.png while using fioraq.png. This can be used to slow a target just a little out of your fioraq.png range.

 

Your fioraq.png cd is refunded by 60% if it hits a target. This makes 114.png better at chasing than running away. Remember you can hit minions to refund its cd to help chase down someone or escape.

 

Your fioraw.png blocks the application of debuffs. This means you can block someone’s ignite when they are about to use it.

 

If your opposing laner vital is placed in a bad spot like behind them, you can walk back until they lose vision and the vital disappears. Once you come back to them a new vital will appear in a better position than before. Likewise, the enemy can do the same thing to change the vital.

 

Your fiorae.png is an auto attack reset. Remember to auto attacking then use it to instantly do another auto attack. Also, the first attack slows which can help you move around your target better.

 

Your fioraq.png is an on-hit ability. This means it procs things like sheen, ardent, lifesteal, 267.png's  namie.png, etc.

 

Your fioraw.png slows attack speed which is huge. Many times when a person gets hit by this they will cancel their auto attacks because they are trying to attack then move. But because their attack speed is slow they will interrupt their auto attack before it goes off.
