Hi I'm Pants are Dragon, a CHALLENGER solo queue jungler player who's peaked at rank 50 on the ladder, also subbed for Complexity Gaming once in the NACL and I've been playing since the release of Nocturne, my first champion was Teemo and I grew in love with his champion select quote \"Captain Teemo on Duty\" and ultimately the game. I actually didn't make my name, it was given to me by Riot! My old name was jlzzdragon and then Riot changed my name to this and I feel like I was trolled to oblivion, but at the same time I grew with great power, and from that day I knew I would be one of the best! For those who want to view my other guides, check the description in this video as it lists links to other guides and is updated thoroughly: [center][vid=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63rjU3VuGck][/center] For those interested, here's my summoner profile: [center][imgext=http://i.gyazo.com/2d6ad76a3a86923b9912890e4756eaed.png][/center] Fiora the Grand Duelist is a champion that is considered an unpopular champion and not a meta pick right now but contains one of the highest win rates out there, so she has something special about her and I think that relies in her ability to do a lot of damage in team fights and to take down squishies. She has a fairly bad laning phase as she doesn't have any escapes and is vulnerable to ganks, also she is melee and thus can be zoned from creeps if she's being snowballed on (BUT if she can snowball back, she becomes a huge threat). In the jungle she is relatively more safe, though her flaw is that she doesn't bring any CC to ganks which can be rather hard, but she can make due with the jungle, though is a decent jungler in terms of gameplay and of course not the best.

Fiora has decent ganks and good clears until he gets a spirit item. Her clears are rather slow because she only has single target damage until Tiamat. Her ganks are fairly decent since she brings 2 gap closers to stick with her target and brings a lot of damage, she is only lacking CC unless she has red buff. If she can stick to her target she will do a lot of damage too. Usually when I jungle Fiora, I have the mentality of ganking 50% and farming 50% since her ganks are average and her farming is average so I make the best of both worlds. Only I will jungle if my smite is up or if I have stacks up from the jungle item or if I can't find a gank (by analyzing situations), once I get my Spirit item clears become easier and I have some sustain. And of course once I hit 6 I will absolutely look for something as I can burst someone down with the help of my regular combo + the ultimate. Always keep tabs on your blue buff/red buff and do them immediately or have some ward coverage so the enemy jungler doesn't steal it, he will steal your red buff (blue side) if you're ganking top and he notices you started there and it's 7:15 minutes. These are general rules I go by, but if you can get a kill and lose a buff it's worth it in my opinion so if you think you can get a kill go for it. Some Junglers out there will not keep tabs on their buff, and at 7:15 if you know he started blue on purple side and you see him ganking top, that's a free blue for you. Little notes like these will make you a better counter jungler and player. [center]GANK COMBO[/center] A successful gank combo requires you to get in range of your Q, once you are in range of your Q use your E so that when you go on her you get the movement speed buff, do not use it as an auto attack reset as you need the movement speed from the Q proc. Once the enemy is out of range of your auto attacks use your 2nd Q to gap close for another time or unless it's going to go on cooldown soon, use W when the enemy retaliates onto you. Once level 6, do the same combo I just said to do, but when to use your ultimate is basically when the enemy is out of melee range or he blows his escape or for the burst damage to finish him off. Remember to use all your burst before using your ultimate (the 2 Q's) so that you can use it when the Q comes back up after your done ulting. [center]When to do Dragon[/center] - Bot Lane is dead. Reason: When doing dragon, it would be a 4v2 if they try to contest it. - You see bot lane recall and your mid and bot lane help do dragon (your team has to have immediate reaction from you and your teammates). - Mid laner down. Reason: Mid is basically worth 1.5x of an ADC early game, because of the level advantage. So you have a clear advantage at dragon. - You feel confident on doing it. You feel that the enemy team won't contest, feeling more powerful, etc. - Vision warded or sweeping lens'd, can solo or ask for some help.

[b]How to Effectively do Jungle Creeps[/b] Level 1 : W + AA Level 2 : W + AA + E to AA reset Level 3 : Q + W + AA + E to AA reset + Q If no blue buff, probs stick to using E and never use W. [b]Blue Side Route[/b] 1. Red (smite) 2. Wraiths 3. Blue (smite) 4. Gank or Super Wraith 5. Wolves 6. Wraiths 7. Golems [b]When ganking:[/b] - Usual Combo: Q + E - AA til out of range of AA - Q - Ult Combo: Q + E - AA til out of range of AA - Q + R (use to burst) [b]Purple Side Route[/b] 1. Blue (smite) 2. Wolves 3. Red (smite) 4. Gank or Golems 5. Wraiths 6. Wolves 7. Super Wraith [center]Ganking Mid Lane[/center] Ganking mid, try coming around the cliff and getting behind them if your mid doesn't have any CC for you to catch up to, then you sort of coming in to probably not go for a kill but more of a chunk of there HP, if your mid has CC your going to do a ton of damage since Fiora has a ton on her kit when she sticks to someone. When coming to this lane it's all about how fast you can burst down the target before he can get to his tower, so only come to mid if you can get a kill or your mid has a lot of CC to lock him down + burst before he can come back to his tower. If your mid has CC come from the mid bushes and let your mid CC him first so you can catch up and land your CC after, then it should be an easy kill or a lot of summoners blown. [center]Ganking Bottom Lane[/center] The hardest lane to gank, this lane is probably the trickiest to pull off as everything is warded most of the time. I will be talking about this from blue side perspective. Ganking this lane is actually the hardest lane to gank, most of the time you won't be the initiator and you'll want your bot lane to initiate so you can run in and get in range of your leap. Whoever is the most vulnerable target you should be targetting so you can get the kill, now with double heal the most priority is the ADC. All you come to this lane for is if your bot lane has CC and not you, the only way you'll ever get kills in this lane is if your bot lane has CC since you have no way of pinning the enemy bot lane down and if you come to this lane thinking to get a kill with you initiating. Then you are just probably gonna get 2 Q's down, get kited and maybe an ult off, if that damage is enough to burst down the enemy then go for it. This lane is usually warded though and you'll need your bot lane to feed you information on where the wards are, and also if your bot lane relies on you to land the stun first, then hopefully you have a Leona or someone with some high CC to lock them down if they are trying to knock away you (Draven, Vayne, Alistar). [center]Invading[/center] Start with Q as it gives you 2 gap closers. [center]Dragon[/center] The dragon comes up every 6 minutes, knowing when to dragon is key, remember its every 6 minutes and you need to have some sort of advantage most of the time when doing it. [center]Baron Nashor[/center] The Baron comes up every 7 minutes. [center]Counter Jungling[/center] Fiora is a pretty bad counter jungler, sure she can gap close onto the enemy twice but she doesn't necessarily have the tools to lock him down so she can whale onto the enemy. She does have a parry to ignore 1 auto attack but the thing is even though she's a great duelist... She doesn't have the tools to get out of the enemy jungle and can be collapsed on if caught out in the enemy jungle. A good way to go in there jungle is when you have vision of the enemy jungler, having that gives you an idea of what to do in a jungle for example, say he's ganking bot lane at 7:15 when he should be getting his buffs is like saying free buffs for Fiora. [center]Counter Ganking:[/center] Find your enemy jungler, then set up in a place where he will come and you can come kill the enemy jungler or whoever is squishier with your allied laner, make sure to pick a target that you can burst and your ally knows it, or else the disperse damage could cause you to die. Fiora is a great counter ganker, because it allows her to get in the fight without having someone else to initiated since the enemy already initiated and is coming to you and has probably used there escapes allowing you to go ham onto the enemy and dish out tons of damage. [center]How to Spike Objectives[/center] Q + Q + Smite should do a lot of damage.

Mid game you should have your Brutalizer + Last Whisper by now and building up to a Black Cleaver. You should also sell your warding totem and get a sweeper lens to get some control over the map and on objectives like dragon and baron. This is where also the best team fights come alive, since everyone is around level 13 and multiple variables happen instead of late game where it's peel for carries and kill the crowd controlled guy. This is where Fiora comes alive and to be honest where I think she gets her high win rate from, TEAM FIGHTS! So anyways as Fiora you'll probably want to group up with your team and do team fights since she contributes to the Wombo Combo, as 1 good ultimate from her can be devastating. Remember, mid game you aren't the initiator but rather follow up and you will come in 2nd to the team fight, or if the team fight initiates on you. If you are somehow stronger than everyone in the game you can split push if you know how to, refer to team fights for what to do in a team fight. Farming should be real fast as you do have tiamat to take out camps swiftly. Remember though, you aren't the front line, if you get caught out of position and CC'd by anything you are most likely to die since you can't cast your R to get invulnerability and untargetable, in a sense Fiora is just like Fizz with the troll pole except longer. Try to find objectives to secure if you have an advantage and push with your advantage. Also you should be keeping track of objectives on timers like dragon and baron, 6 minutes for dragon and 7 minutes for baron.

By this time you should have the black cleaver completed and either getting a defensive item like Guardian Angel or Banshee's Veil or Randuins, or just building more damage if you feel you need to hyper carry as Fiora. Again Fiora contributes to the Wombo Combo and has the ability to 1 shot squishies with her combo if she can get on them, so the way I see Fiora is since she has a pretty good team fight can do like 2000+ damage to everyone in the team fight (not including Tiamat AoE). And so I feel if she gets onto the enemy carry with another person there just going to die since they can't do anything about you using your ultimate on them, though of course if you get exhausted before you ultimate... That can be troublesome, Fiora is a really good diver late game since if she gets in a 1v1 situation with the squishies she can take them out swiftly.

What is your role in a team fight? : Diver, Assassin The diver, is the one who can get to the enemy back line. The assassin, is the one who takes out enemy squishies swiftly. [center][b]What do you do with your skills?[/b][/center] [img=skills/fiora/q.png] - This skill is used to gap close and when to use the 2nd Q is to either gap close a 2nd time if they aren't in melee range or if you are about to use your ultimate to get the burst damage off. [img=skills/fiora/w.png] - This should always be used whenever your going in as you'll probably take an auto attack so you'll want to parry it. [img=skills/fiora/e.png] - This skill should always be used at the beginning of your lunge to keep up with the enemy, and to focus him down with auto attacks + your stickiness with the movement speed. [img=skills/fiora/r.png] - This skill should be used on a target to burst him down, or once you feel the need to go invulnerable and you want the enemy to switch focus on someone else so you don't get bursted down, or of course when the enemy groups up in 1 ball because say Orianna used her ultimate and you want to contribute to the wombo combo + your Tiamat proc will do tons of damage with her ultimate. If I somehow get caught out before the team fight starts I will use it so I can do as much damage as I can before dying. [center][b]What positioning should you have?[/b][/center] Being behind your front line (or initiator) and being ready to follow up on the initiation, your job is to basically follow up onto whoever got focused on and to burst him down, if your going in solely as a diver by yourself things could go wrong if you don't have the damage to one shot the squishies as they will have a lot of support. If you see someone trying to dive onto your carry (ex: Irelia, Jax) you MUST switch focus to them so your carry can keep doing damage and not die in the team fight. Try to take them down if they are going ham with your damage, if you are in danger of other amounts of AoE from the enemy team be careful, or you might want to use your ultimate even on the diver to avoid incoming damage. If you see someone diving onto the enemy carries, it's best that you dive with them as Fiora does make a super good dive buddy and is good for killing carries. If she jumps in alone though he can be CC'd and not get his target and explode. Once your HP is low, you should only attack someone when you can get in melee range and not die, if you see the enemies cooldowns are down thats another point to make. Remember you want to always be surviving throughout the whole fight and that's your goal, but you still want to have presence in a fight.
