Who is FIORA?
Fiora is one of the best and most feared duelists in Valoran, renowned for her curt manner and cunning mind, wielding the famous blue steel rapier.
She was born to the prestigious Laurent household in the Demacia kingdom. Fiora strived for perfection in all things, brooking no insult to her honor or that of her family’s.
But from an early age, Fiora already defied all expectations placed upon her, where she forced her brother to give her lessons in using the rapier in secret.
As she grew up and several political issues of being a noble have started to taint her family’s name, Fiora took over her family’s household—just right before a scandal nearly destroyed them.
Although House Laurent’s reputation was sundered, the Grand Duelist bends all her efforts to restore her family’s honor and bring back the riches they once had
Now, Fiora plans to return her family to their rightful place in Demacia her way.
FIORA's Skills and abilities
Fiora is a potent champion and is one of the best for Top Lane gameplay. She has a relatively simple kit but possesses a high skill ceiling requiring a fair amount of thought to get the most out of her playstyle.
Fiora is all about positioning, striking enemy forces in “key” locations, and when successful, you’ll be able to clean up against multiple enemies at impressive speed.
Here’s a closer look at Fiora’s skills and abilities:
- Duelist’s Dance
Duelist’s Dance is Fiora’s innate or passive attack. It allows Fiora to identify the Vitals of any nearby enemy champions, marking an arch around them.
Vitals will take 0.5 seconds to identify enemy units and usually lingers for 15 seconds. After at least one Vital gets triggered or time out, Fiora will locate a new one on her target.
It also heals Fiora and grants her bonus movement speed that decays in 1.75 seconds.
Lunge lets Fiora dash for a short distance in a target direction, where she’ll then stab a nearby enemy unit. When you successfully hit an enemy, it will reduce this skill’s cooldown by 60%.
This skill inflicts physical damage while applying on-hit effects and prioritizing Vitals — and enemy champions.
This skill is where Fiora poises to strike her blade in a target direction while becoming immune to non-turret damage and gaining crowd control and debuff immunity. However, during this, Fiora will be immobile.
Fiora will stab her sword forward after the poise, dealing magic damage to enemies within a straight line.
The first enemy champion hit by this attack is slowed down and crippled for 1.5 seconds. If Fiora manages to dodge an immobilizing effect, Riposte will stun instead of applying a slow.
Bladework is an active attack that gives Fiora’s subsequent two basic attacks within 14 seconds a bonus of 175 attack range and a 50% attack speed boost.
However, Fiora’s first basic attack can’t critically strike, but it can slow targets by 30% for one second. Meanwhile, the second attack is always guaranteed to inflict a critical strike for enhanced damage.
This skill resets Fiora’s auto-attack timer.
- Grand Challenge
Passive: Grand Challenge gives Duelist’s Dance existing movement speed bonus another boost when Fiora is near a target enemy.
Active: When activated, Fiora will challenge a target enemy champion for 8 seconds, highlighting their four Vitals, creating an area around them. While in effect, Duelist’s Dance doesn’t identify new Vitals on her target.
If Fiora hits at least one Vital before her target dies or if Fiora hits all Vitals, she’ll create a Victory Zone. In this zone, all allied champions can get healed for 2 to 5 seconds depending on how many Vitals Fiora managed to hit.
tIPS AND TRICKS
Fiora is one of the ‘easiest’ champions in League of Legends to use. However, her playstyle needs more macro knowledge and execution, meaning you need to collaborate with your team to win.
Here are tips and tricks to help you play Fiora like a pro:
- Because of Fiora’s Duelist Dance, she excels at quick trades. Use this boost to strike a Vital and escape unscathed.
- Fiora’s Grand Challenge allows her to take down rugged enemy units with ease and recover if successful.
- When Fiora walks too far away from an enemy champion, Vitals will disappear, and they won’t appear if an enemy unit doesn’t see her.
- You can use Fiora’s Riposte mid-lunge, allowing her to block the effects of counter-stuns—immobilizing abilities like Jinx’s Flame Chompers.
- If you move far away enough, Fiora can force Vitals to appear in favorable positions for her and the opposite for enemy units.
- When you hide Fiora in the bushes, Vitals will start appearing if the enemy team has a vision of these bushes.
- For Riposte, immobilizing effects refer to any ability preventing Fiora from moving, and skills like Bard’s Tempered Fate can cause it to stun.
- You can let Fiora push turrets faster by using Bladework as it resets her auto-attack.
- Fiora’s Riposte can break Vitals if the attack hits them, including ones identified in the Grand Challenge.
- The Conqueror rune can help Fiora in lane trading and all-ins, while the Triumph rune can help in 1v1 situations.
- Use the Nimbus Cloak rune in winning lanes since it boosts Fiora’s Grand Challenge movement speed.
