A strong duelist in lane, Fiora is best picked against other AD-based champions. Your ob will be to control the lane and splitpush as best you can, so that the pressure is taken off your other lanes. 

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Lunge, for poke damage potential from the start. 
  • Level 2 - Take W - Riposte, so that when your opponent attempts a trade you can deflect and strike back. 
  • First Back - Start building towards Goredrinker, or pick up your defensive boots.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can use Lunge to hop over walls in times of difficulty.
  • Bladework resets your auto. Use Lunge, then auto, then Bladework, then auto again for a good combo. Activate Tiamat and then Bladework again to extend the combo.
  • If you leave an enemy's field of view, Vitals will be reset. 
  • You can use Riposte during Lunge to pass through forms of crowd control, such as Veigar's barrier. Use this to surprise your enemy.
  • When you use Grand Challenge. try to hit Vitals one after another - this will save a lot of time.
