Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

[Starting]

First off, always start with a Long SwordLong Sword as first item, you are going to need those damages to poke the enemy with you Q (first ability).

Then, try to keep enough golds to buy 2 items at your first back: SheenSheen and PhagePhage . These items will give you +100% AD damage on your next attack following an ability and give you move speed after striking or killing an enemy.


If things were not going too well and you died before having enough gold, buy boots for mobility.


[Core]

Always go for Trinity ForceTrinity Force first, incredible amount of AD when you hit an enemy, and go for Death's DanceDeath's Dance at second for some omnivamp.

As a third item, I used to go Guardian AngelGuardian Angel , but since it was nerfed hard, I places it as a fifth item, so now I naturally go Sterak's GageSterak's Gage for some HP and a shield bonus for when my HP goes low during fights.


Fourth item is Spirit VisageSpirit Visage , simply because it gives you more HP and HP regen (+100% HP regen and +30% health received from healing or omnivamp, very good on Fiora).

Now, Guardian AngelGuardian Angel . Since his nerf it gives you less AD and armor and its cooldown is much longer so I place it here now. If you die infortunately in a 1v2 or even 1v3, you can come back to life and escape quickly, or even completely tip the balance in your favor and go for a quick double kill, or even triple kill, depending on your CD's and enemies hp.

Finally, the boots. I recommend either Gluttonous GreavesGluttonous Greaves or Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant . Gluttonous for bonus life steal, and Teleport if your team is struggling with taking objectives, or tp to split push faster.

Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King which I often use it to replace my Spirit VisageSpirit Visage in my build, since it gives you more life steal and scaling damage

Best Runes for Fiora

Keystone

Domination
Brutal
Brutal
Resolve
Hunter Titan
Hunter Titan
Inspiration
Mastermind
Mastermind

Grasp of undying most of the times, for healing and a permanent gain of max HP.  BUT, if you are facing a ranged top, go for Fleet footwork, for more mobility and small heal when stacked.

Always go Brutal, for bonus AD and armor penetration.

Take Hunter titan for max health and tenacity, to survive longer.

And finally go for Mastermind, Fiora is. great split pusher and if you take mastermind, combined with BladeworkBladework the turrets will melt when you come for them.

Be careful when poking him, because if he lands his Decisive StrikeDecisive Strike , you will be silenced and you will not be able to escape his JudgmentJudgment and you will take damage. If he is trying to hit you with is Decisive StrikeDecisive Strike you can parry it with Riposte, and use Lunge when he is spinning.

if you are low on HP after a trade, just run away fast, he has a dumb ult ( Demacian JusticeDemacian Justice ) and he just has to come close to you and press it to one shot you when low, and he can even flash under your turret to land it, or walk to you.

You can parry his ult with Riposte, but be sure to have your CD up before going

Fiora

Tips

LungeLunge

Always poke your enemy with Lunge when he is going for some CS ans stay behind your minions, and he will not be able to chase you since you have bonus movement speed when striking a vital. Do this repetedly and you will have advantage and he will be forced to back early.


When hitting your LungeLunge on your enemy, he will try to land an ability on you, so instantly use your RiposteRiposte to avoid it, then continue the trade until he dies or you have LungeLunge back to escape.

If you kill your opponent very early, dont force push your lane to his turrets to make him lose some CS, you won't have time. Just last hit the minions and freeze/slow push, and poke him when he is trying to come for CS.


BladeworkBladework

If you kill the oponnent at level 4-5, you can push the wave to his turret and steal his fruit, take a plate and back for buying items.

When you come for hitting a turret, always use your BladeworkBladework on cooldown, your second attack will do a critial strike, and use it to reset your auto attack, so you hit it faster.

To reset your auto attack with your BladeworkBladework , just press it fast at the right moment when you see Fiora landing an auto attack, use it for hitting towers or trading ennemies.


RiposteRiposte

If you use your RiposteRiposte to parry a slow, you will not be slowed, but if you used it to parry a stun (ex: Lux), the enemy will be stunned for the same duration instead of you, keep that in mind, and use it conscientiously since it's cooldown is very long, escpecially when it hits nothing.


Grand ChallengeGrand Challenge

Her ultimate, this will create a large zone around your enemy revealing his 4 vitals.

While in this zone, your movement speed is increased, and hitting a vital will do a percentage of the target's max health and heal you for an amount.

If you manage to hit the 4 spots, or if the enemy dies and you managed to hit at least 1 spot, the zone will pop on the ground and you and your allied in range are getting healed for the next 2 seconds.


Try activating your ult when you are place to the side where he is going to escape, its easier to hit vitals behind him than in front of him when he is escaping, even if you have a bonus movement speed and LungeLunge to get faster.

Fiora

Fighting and pushing

When you are in a 1v2 situation, always go for the one doing the most damage, if its an ADC and his support in front of you, focus the ADC first (ex: Miss Fortune and Alistar).

When in a 1v3, just run away, you have easy escapes possibilities with fiora, you can dash through walld with [Lunge], flash and use your boots; or, depending if you are fed and if they are low on HP, you can get a triple kill, but these situations are rare.

Going 1v1 for you isabsolutely not a problem, you are Fiora, the grand duelist, and must destroy every 1v1, and if you go with all your spells up, its an easy fight that you can end with your full HP.


In mid-late game, you will prefer doing split pushing, since you have Mastermind rune and your [Bladework] ability, one or two of your minion waves are enough to hold the tower shots while you destroy a turret.

Fiora

About me and my guide

I started Wild Rift in october and peaked Gold I in december, then I stopped playing ranked and waited for the beginning of season 1 to climb seriously.

I'm a french player Fiora main that averages 56-57% winrate, and in 95% of my games, I get the first blood or the first turret, or both, and I always top everyone in terms of gold and damage in every of my games.

If I decided to make this guide for low elo players, it's because I never see anyone pick Fiora in this game, so I show you that Fiora is a very strong champ that can carry a hole team and 1v9 if played well. She has a strong split push and duel potential, and people usually underestimate her in game, and get destroyed.


You can find almost everything I know about Fiora in this guide, as Builds, common matchup based on what you will face most most of the time in top lane (baron lane), runes and tips and tricks.
