You vastly out damage her early on. Build some Armor before core items, and don’t waste your W on her Riposte as it won’t slow her.
- Bait out her W by E, Q, W combo but hold onto W until Fiora’s W wears off or until you auto, taking off Riposte and then W, dealing full damage and stunning her at the same time.
- It is advised to take Doran’s shield first. Another path is to start cloth armor and rush Thornmail. Build Randuins if it still feels a little rough. If you are winning, build Ravenous and then your other tank items.
Play aggressive, but don’t overdo it. Keep an eye on Fiora’s damage output and Q her as much as you can. Once her health is low, you should have no problem landing a good Q>W>E>(A)>Q combo.
Tips For Playing Against Fiora
- Engage Fiora when her Lunge is on cooldown, which is her main mobility skill.
- CC her when she activates her Burst of Speed, as it will go on a long cooldown after 3 seconds if she does not get any kills.
- Fiora has high AD output. Items like Thormail will be extremely effective against her, so be tanky.
- Don’t clump together after she buys a Tiamat/Ravenous Hydra as she will do massive AOE damage.
