Duelist’s Dance
(Effect Radius: 1200, Angle: 90° Movement Speed Bonus: 20/30/40/50%)
INNATE: 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.

In addition, Fiora gains Duelist’s Dance’s movement speed bonus ([0]%) while near the target.If Fiora hits all 4 Vitals in 8 seconds or if the target dies after she has hit at least one, Fiora and her allies in the area are healed for 80/110/140 (+0) each second for between 2 to 5 seconds, scaling with the amount of Vitals hit.Fiora once again gains Duelist’s Dance movement speed bonus while in Grand Challenge’s circle


Top Lane

  • Take advantage of her Duelist’s Dance (Passive) and try to hit your enemy champion’s vital spot as  much as possible as this will give her basic attacks bonus true damage and even heals her giving her an upper-hand in exchanging attacks.
  • Don’t try to force to hit vitals always though, as you might be in a disadvantageous position from trying your hardest to hit the vital.
  • Use your (W) Riposte when you’re predicting that the enemy champion would use crowd control as this will turn the engagement around. You’ll be able to block the CC and even stun the enemy.
  •  Remember that although you have a gap closer, you shouldn’t initiate a team head-on. It’s better to followup after someone who’s tanky and has AOE CC. This will allow you to freely move in the engagement and attack without worrying about being focused.

Core Items
Mercurys treads icon Ravenous hydra icon The black cleaver icon
Mercury’s Treads Ravenous Hydra The Black Cleaver

Mercury’s Treads – This boots upgrade allows Fiora to deal with some magic damage, as this gives her good magic resistance. More importantly, Mercury’s Treads helps her shake off crowd control faster, which is essential as she needs to auto attack her targets to deal massive damage.

Ravenous Hydra – Ravenous Hydra solves Fiora’s problem with farming and clearing the wave since she is weak in those areas. The extra attack damage and lifesteal also fits perfectly well with Fiora’s kit.

The Black Cleaver – The Black Cleaver helps Fiora hit vitals with the added movement speed when she attacks an enemy champion. The item also reduces the target’s armor, making him more vulnerable to Fiora.

Ravenous hydra icon  Maw of malmoritus icon Guardian angel icon
Ravenous Hydra Maw of Malmortius Guardian Angel

The Bloodthirster – The damage and the steroid lifesteal can regenerate Fiora’s health in a heartbeat. Her kit centers around dealing true damage and and attack speed. The item is very effective for Fiora especially if she already has her main damage items.

Maw of Malmortius – Maw of Malmortius gives Fiora more chance to live longer against bursty enemies. The item also grants magic resistance, attack damage, and cooldown reduction which fits well with Fiora.

Guardian Angel – Guardian Angel is the last item you want to get as Fiora. The added damage and extra life can change the tide of battle since this item path is cenetered around Fiora being an AD threat.

Situational Items

Situational Items
 Frozen mallet icon  Youmuus Ghostblade icon  Mercurial Schimitar icon
Frozen Mallet Youmuu’s Ghostblade Mercurial Scimitar

Frozen Mallet – Frozen Mallet increases Fiora’s kiting ability because her basic attacks slow enemies, making her hit vitals more easily. The added health also improves Fiora’s Survivability in fights.

Youmuu’s Ghostblade – Youmuu’s Ghostblade improves your lethality and out of combat movement speed. This item is good in Fiora if you want to have more damage and movement speed.

Mercurial Schimitar – Get this item if the enemy has a lot of crowd controls that hinders you from doing much in a teamfight.

Playing Against

  • Fiora has only one mobile spell, her (Q) Lunge. Try to punish her as much as possible if she uses it wrongly.
  • Watch out for her (W) Riposte as she can parry any damage. Attacking her during her defensive stun will also lead to a stun so it’s best to keep your distance when she activates her (W) Riposte.
  • Fiora has massive AD damage but you can use this to your advantage by purchasing Thornmail, allowing you to reflect her basic attacks back to her.

Hard Counter

  • Renekton – Renekton can effortlessly zone out Fiora with his Cull the Meek and even chase her with Slice and Dice.
  • Rammus – Rammus is an armor-heavy champion that fares well with champions who are rely on basic attacks. Rammus’ Defensive Ball Curl  acts like a Thornamail that reflects damage. Puncturing Taunt also reduces Fiora’s armor and forces her to attack him. Rammus also has the ability to escape easily when she uses Grand Challenge by activating Powerball and accelerating away from Fiora.
  • Jax – Jax is good at extended team fights, much to what Fiora excels at. Jax can just use Counter Strike to parry all her basic attacks and finally stun her after the duration of the skill. He can also use Leap Strike to get away from her if she uses Grand Challenge.
