May be updating build soon not a huge fan of the new Fiora going to try a few games eventually.

This is a way to get off free refreshes of auto attacks during fights. -This works with [img=skills/fiora/q.png] and [img=skills/fiora/e.png], immediately after an auto attack if you proc these abilities your auto attack will immediately follow the ability regardless of when your auto attack was last used. This is the same as Jax and his [img=skills/jax/w.png] or riven and her [img=skills/riven/q.png] and you would be surprised how much it can help in a trade to utilize this strategy.

*-*LEVEL 2 CHEESE*-* - This is a very important point of the game for you as Fiora, your level 2 Damage with Q and W is a bit ridiculous. Your main concern with the first and second wave of minions is to GET LEVEL 2 BEFORE THEM without overly pushing the lane, you can do this by counting the minions and make sure you can get level 2 one or two minions before them, you will out trade them and possibly force them to back, miss xp/cs, or get first blood. Doing this will drastically increase the chance of you being able to dominate the lane. **remember that a kill is not worth a death so take it easy here** -when going aggressive early game i recommend going all in but not playing stupid, watch the minions and don't fight in a giant wave (you will lose), it is risky and can take some getting used to going in level 2, there are a lot of things to consider. Some tips for winning early game are. 1. Keep track of minions in the lane and respect how much damage they do when a group of them are attacking you. 2.Time your parry, if you don't need to use it conserve the mana, if they keep turning their back on you and letting you attack them save the mana, read more about [img=skills/fiora/w.png] in its description. 3. Don't ladder minions early game, this is where you use enemy minions to reach or evade your target. The reason for this is to maximize damage during trades, you should be using Q first to reach your target and start proccing your E active so you can keep up with the enemy, the second should be used directly after an auto attack (level 2) to maximize damage, or conserve it to jump back to minions or catch a flashing enemy. 4.Keep track of their jungler, you need to keep vision top lane when you are playing Fiora because while you have your Q you have no conventional escape and you are a squishy vulnerable melee champ. Ask your lanes to report on the jungler in chat or watch very intently for him. For example, if he shows up bot lane go aggressive, if you played early game correctly you should be able to win trades and possibly kill or push them out of lane, this lets you proxy farm the lane and have time to go B with little minion loss and get items and damage up on your enemy. -CS is incredibly important, you need items to be successful. Getting easy wave clear and sustain with hydra is your main concern to scaling into mid game well, so get Tiamat ASAP.

Try your best to roam to mid lane, most mids are squishy enough to for you to Q E AA AA AA Q and and kill them with ease sometimes you wont even need your ult, getting towers and keeping dragon control with your lane pushing capabilities will win you the game. The reason jungle Fiora does not work very well is because you don't have enough gold flow to itemize yourself, this doesn't mean you have no ganking capabilities, you have one of the most aggressive champions in the game so take advantage of it. This is the reason Fiora mid is strong as well, she melts squishies easily and snowballs very hard, accompanied by strong roaming.

It is a game changing choice to splitpush with Fiora, while her kit and core items make it great for her to splitpush, she has no escape and she isn't Shen or Tryndamere so be careful. Many people misunderstand how splitpushing can help or even save games, when you are ahead, you don't need to splitpush, stick with your team and get objectives. If you are behind and decide to splitpush make sure to communicate with your team so you can safely splitpush and live, instead of just leaving them 4v5 or getting killed for instance make sure they can get an objective like a dragon or tower if they bring 3 people top to kill you dont just run up there with dragon down and no lanes pushed or you will put your team behind.

You will more than likely be focused as Fiora, this is unavoidable, if you are not being focused in teamfights just get pentakills for them not focusing you, try your best to keep E active during teamfights and get off as many AA's as possible.. -[b]The Reason This Build Works![/b] - The reason i build the unconventional PD and IE is largely because i like to make a larger impact in teamfights with my autoattacks, becoming a more powerful version of Yi. I like to [img=skills/fiora/q.png] into an unsuspecting target preferably the carry or mid, i then proc [img=skills/fiora/w.png] and [img=skills/fiora/e.png] to get off as much damage as possible. If their team isn't quick they will either [img=summoners/flash.png] or die, this is where your other [img=skills/fiora/q.png] will want to be saved because you will still have time to use it, if you dont have to use it again just use it again right after an auto attack to proc a quicker autoattack then as you begin to be focused by the tanks, chain CC'ed, or as your health gets low just use [img=skills/fiora/r.png], you will then come out of your ult to find a very damaged enemy team, most of your health back from [img=items/ravenous-hydra.png] proccing off your ult strikes, and all cooldowns basically refreshed and ready to shred the enemy again.

[img=items/mercurial-scimitar.png] Mecurial Scimitar- This can be good against champions who have a large stun or taunt that will ruin you in a teamfight (Malzahar/Rammus) , there are much better items to get so hold off on buying these until you see who they are going for in teamfights. [img=items/maw-of-malmortius.png] Maw of Malmortious- This can be a very useful item to get in lanes against tanky AP heavy champions, i typically dont buy this item even in AP lanes, lanes like elise, akali, singed, rumble etc. i dont tend to have any problem bullying them or sustaining so i dont need to stray off my build path. If you see yourself getting behind in an AP lane either by dying or getting camped you should look into this item for the shield and AD. [img=items/the-black-cleaver.png] Black Cleaver-This is an important section, Black cleaver is a very good item, it does well with Fiora and can be quite useful, however i feel people build it as a core item for early game strength and you don't always need it, with it giving % A Pen you can build it vs very tanky teams that will stack armour, but it will lower your damage to squishies, so be conscious of this item and only build it when you think its necessary (v.s a team who is stacking armor).

[img=items/phantom-dancer.png] Phantom Dancer- This and Infinity Edge are usually not liked on Fiora for some reason, many say that flat AD is how you maximize damage with Fiora, this is basically saying after Fiora ults she is useless which is not true. Getting attack speed gives you the ability to stay alive in teamfights by attacking enough to lifesteal and stay alive. ***One of the best parts of this item is the passive, getting rid of minion block when you are a melee champ gives you a huge advantage when you are fighting in a minion wave.*** [img=items/infinity-edge.png] Infinity Edge- Crit and AD cant hurt, i love the synergy of PD and IE with Fiora it gives her huge amounts of damage. [img=items/ravenous-hydra.png] Ravenous Hydra- Core, somewhat needed, does great with your ult, if you dont like this item replace it with BT, you will still do alot of damage. [img=items/last-whisper.png] Last Whisper- Core item on AD, its cheap and the its passive is amazing. [img=items/berserkers-greaves.png] Berserkers Greaves- great item, resistances are pretty useless on Fiora having cc reduction most likely wont matter if you get stunned. [img=items/the-bloodthirster.png][img=items/guardian-angel.png] BT & GA- very late game switching of these two items while GA is on cooldown can help a quite a bit in fights.

[img=summoners/ghost.png] Ghost- I personally hate this summoner spell on Fiora, flash is a much better summoner spell to use with her kit and diving/avoiding ganks is much easier with flash. (use flash with caution and remember a kill isnt worth a death) [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] BotRK- I do not like this item on Fiora most of the time, my opinion on Fiora is that her ult and AA rely on on hit effect such as crit and lifesteal, this item does not maximize damage with your ult, it is very expensive and doesn't have much flat AD, yes it has a great active and its stats are good, if you really want to build the item for the utility you can buy it, it wont be useless by any means but the space it takes and the gold it costs will delay your full build and give you less damage in team fights. [img=items/youmuus-ghostblade.png] Youmuu's Ghostblade- I do feel this item is good on alot of melee ADC's and the active will certainty help you stick to a champion and give you some more burst, i don't feel that is a great item to invest in with fiora as there are better items to put in its spot, you have plenty of gap closers with [img=skills/fiora/q.png] and [img=skills/fiora/r.png] and you have good mobility with [img=skills/fiora/e.png], you will want to combo [img=skills/fiora/q.png][img=skills/fiora/e.png] + AA.... [img=skills/fiora/q.png] + AA... to stick to champions. [img=items/statikk-shiv.png] -Statikk Shiv- Works on alot of AD champions but Phantom Dancer's passive and increased stats are worth the gold when you are playing Fiora. ANY TANK ITEM- You are not a tank, you deal damage then you die, that is more or less your job, you don't stay alive through tank items, you stay alive through timing, strategy, and lifesteal. Never get - [img=items/frozen-heart.png][img=items/frozen-mallet.png][img=items/trinity-force.png][img=items/thornmail.png][img=items/randuins-omen.png][img=items/frozen-fist.png][img=items/warmogs-armor.png]

Fiora needs gold to be really successful, Fiora is just like Poppy jungle, if you get a kill you can get big, but its hard to be successful or gank any lanes that are tanky or behind. For the record I do not recommend jungling Fiora but im just trying to get some tips for those of you who want to try it or NEED to play Fiora and top or mid are taken. -The smite being on a lower cooldown is helpful to your clear times but i would still call Fiora a weak jungler. -Thus far on S5 changes Fiora is still a meh jungler because of her lack of CC, clear times, and not being capable of having strong gold flow to obtain items. -However you're already playing Fiora so lets give some tips on how to jungle her :D.

[img=skills/fiora/q.png] -ganking with it maxed, it actually felt weaker having no AD to back it up [img=skills/fiora/w.png] -Maxing this, i had decent clear times with the bonus AD and one or two [img=skills/fiora/w.png]'s made the big monster go by (in Fiora jungle terms) relatively quick. -Also when ganking at level 6 having a good amount of base AD from this ability was fantastic. [img=skills/fiora/e.png] -Cleared slow early game but after picking up jungle items you can feel the farming potential, i recommend maxing this and stacking up devour if you decide to buy it. Masteries: [img=] - I never tried to jungle her with defensive masteries because i love all the offensive masteries for late game so i kept them. Runes: I was using the same as my top lane, i love lifesteal but AD Quints may have been more practical.

[img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---warrior.png][img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png](My Reccomendation - Good clear, damage, and regen, a decent buy) -It worked pretty well and i got built relatively quickly. -Damage wasn't as big as it is with tiamat when ganking or clearing, but made it a bit easier, both items work great, you can stack magic damage per auto attack with [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png][img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] or go for armor pen and flat damage with[img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---warrior.png], both work fine. [img=items/bilgewater-cutlass.png] (My Recommendation - hard to start with but makes a decent active for ganking after you have a jungle item built) -I typically don't like BotRK on fiora because of it price and being somewhat useless with her ult, it did give me decent ganks, but the price for finishing the blade, by the time i got it finished my early damage had kind of fallen off. I got some good out of the slow and i felt i could duel enemy junglers and do more in lane with, not mention blade and devour mesh really well together. [img=items/tiamat.png](My Recommendation - slow & difficult start (ask for a good leash), but started me on my preferred build quickly and made my level 6 ganks do massive damage especially bot lane and counter ganking, also a good buy) -started slow and is hard with longsword instead of machete, i got out of the rut and began to clear a bit faster, don't get pickaxe and try to rush tiamat for clear, get vampiric or you will be even slower. Helped with ganks and pushing lanes after a gank. Adds ALOT of map pressure when you have a roaming tiamat with [img=skills/fiora/e.png], good buy.

Start -[img=items/hunters-machete.png] Rush - [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png] or [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---warrior.png], [img=items/bilgewater-cutlass.png] this will give you cc on ganks and decent damage, [img=items/tiamat.png]. Final - [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png] or [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---warrior.png], [img=items/ravenous-hydra.png][img=items/infinity-edge.png][img=items/last-whisper.png][img=items/berserkers-greaves.png] Last item possiblites, if you want [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png] and [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] you will get a good amount of magic damage to prevent them from stacking armor, or if you want bigger hits go [img=items/phantom-dancer.png]

Like the assumed Fiora \"combo\" of Q + AA (as many as you can) Q + AA (as many as you can) then go into ult if diving is a good idea on the particular gank. This is the best way to go into other lanes, to chase someone, or to stick on your lane opponent. -You will be somewhat weak pre 6 but with red buff you are never useless and you have two gap closers and a speed boost which will always keep you on the target.
