“Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite
Tips: Your W blocks vital hits and her Q. Stand against wall if you want to fight her Ult. Bramble Vest is good. Dodge her W at all costs, the AS slow is too strong. Your E vs her W is mostly mind game, you can hold it and wait for her to use W first.”
“Fiora is an annoying but fun matchup. Be careful when using your E since if she ripostes it you will pretty much die to her as she stuns you with it as well as cripples you.. It is best for you to try and upkeep your E for the maximum duration as most Fioras will try to predict you to use your E's stun earlier than the end of the duration. If the vital is in a bad spot walk out of her vision so the vital reappears in a different spot. If she ults and you can't kill her quickly ward jump out since she deals true damage aswell as heals herself for quite a bit. Tabis are good in this matchup aswell, and Bramble vest is a really good buy against her too. Good thing to remember while she has ulted you is to hug a wall with one vital so she can't proc it, meaning she won't get her healing area.”
“My tips for this matchup:
#1 run PTA and start doran's blade.
#2 don't let her proc vitals for free early, if she does trade back auto attacks.
#3 You can predict her Q'ing to a vital and use your E where she is going to Q to making it very easy to land your E without her parrying it.
#4 If you're going for an E on her, try to be as close as possible so it's hard for her to parry, DO NOT go for max range E's as they're very easy for her to react to.
#5 Hug walls when she uses her ultimate on you making it impossible for her to proc the last vital of her ultimate.
#6 Buy some form of grevious wounds, I go executioners if I'm even or ahead, and bramble if I fall behind.”
“If you can bait out her Q early on, she becomes very easy to punish. Watch her items because she can kill you with a few AD components.”
“Fiora is not hard as you can reset her passive by simply walking away and coming back, if you don't you are just giving her free sustain & damage. You should only ever be engaging her when the passive is angled behind you or against a wall, where she can not simply (Q) you for free. One of the biggest things to know is, you should never-ever, start or try to finish her off with (Q) -> Ignite combo, as she can very easily parry them both at the same time, same thing goes for Electrocute. What you need to do, is keep auto attacking until she parries. Avoid it, then go all in. If she ults position the final vital against a wall. Protect it and duel her.
“You will beat her early, but once she gets 2 items, she will snowball. You need to put her in the dirt and finish the game ASAP.
“TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP. DON’T FIGHT LEVELS 1 AND 2 IF FIORA IS GOOD. FREEZE -> RUN HER DOWN WITH GHOST AS USUAL. STAND AGAINST A WALL WHEN SHE ULTS. DON’T MISS YOUR QS. SIDESTEP HER RIPOSTE. ULT HER DURING YOUR E AS SHE CANNOT STOP IT. BRAMBLE VEST IF STRUGGLING. CONQUEROR IS RECOMMENDED.
This matchup heavily depends on how good the Fiora is. A great Fiora is somewhat difficult to face but all you have to know is that level 1, she is MUCH stronger than you. Do NOT trade her beyond a Q or two level 1. Any Fiora worth their salt will use the opportunity to hit all of your vitals and poke you low enough to the point where you can no longer all in her later on. Level 3 is where the lane becomes easier though. The only point where she beats you is if she Ripostes your E. At that point you are simply done as her stun is long enough for her to get a bunch of vitals off. If you are struggling, pick up a Bramble Vest but it is not always necessary. When she uses her ultimate on you, try to make sure to stand against a wall so that she cannot proc her last vital. She has very terrible waveclear so freezes work very well against her. She outscales you eventually so try to close out the game quick. Conqueror is a must in this lane. Plated Steelcaps are also a great buy. Pair up with bramble vest and you should win all ins even if you are behind.”
“Do your best to work around her W because you automatically lose if she gets it right. Much like Jax, Fiora wants to counter your stun. While her stun is much longer than Jax's, it's only slow if you didn't CC her and it's much easier to evade. It also has a massive 24-second cooldown and she maxes it last. This gives you huge windows for kills so keep a mental clock when she uses it.
Reframe from diving her if you can't bait this ability out because you're dead if you mess up. This is a skill matchup in favor of Fiora only because of the devastation one mistake will do to you. She's another champ that's allowed to mess up more without paying the same price.”
“Fiora is a champion that on paper should hard counter Sion. She does percent health true damage. While she will definitely counter you pretty hard lategame, you should have the edge in the laning phase. One trick that works 90% of the time against Fiora is to fully charge your Q. Basically, if you let go of your Q too early, she will Riposte it and stun you instead but if you hold it down and don't flinch she will almost always use her Riposte a little too early and get hit by the full chargeup of your Q. Once she realizes what's happening you will have to adapt and kind of play mind games with her on how long you channel your Q. At level 6 you really need to watch out, don't push up too far or she'll ult you and run you down. Also, try not to use your ult against her unless her Riposte is on cooldown unless to setup a gank. For items, Bramble Vest and Ninja Tabi are Fiora's worst nightmare, they counter her incredibly hard. If they have a lot of auto attack focused champions you could also think about getting a Frozen Heart as it works well against Fiora and other heavy auto attack champions. Frozen heart is really one of the few soft counters to her percent health true damage.”
“Horrible lane, her W cancels your E and will stun you so bait it out by running alongside her and essentially play "Chicken". As soon as she R's you, R and run for the hills, when her ult is on you your main aim to just get out of there. Your W cancels her Q.”
