“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.
“Skill matchup - Fiora has a strong level 1 while your level 1 is relatively weak - she can run you down during this period if you play too far up or aggressively. I recommend letting her push level 1 because of this, so you can reach level 2 safely and have a better way of fighting her if she does decide to go for a Q. Her main way of dealing damage in lane is her Vital mark - one way to deal with this is to walk out of her vision/range to reset the mark and possibly get a better one - preferably one that's behind you and far away from her. Be VERY cautious of using your Q when her W is up - it is a skillshot but if you play carelessly and she blocks your Q with it and you're hit with the skillshot, then you'll be stunned. Mid-Late game, your ability to duel her depends on your ability to kite - it is ESSENTIAL that you kite when dueling her to deny her vital procs. She is one of the few champions able to run Kayle down in a 1v1 if you make mistakes. A nice trick is that you can hide Vitals in a wall to deny her procs, making it slightly easier to duel her especially when she has used her Ult on you.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Fiora is a challenging matchup. There's a lot of outplay potential on both sides and it can make this matchup fun. Try to avoid getting hit by her Q on the weak spot and also do not use EQ for the knockup on her because she can either dash away or W to damage and stun you. Before going all in for the kill, always try to bait out her parry! Rush Tabis first item.”
“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.”
“Recommand to rush an executioner calling to fiora. Bad side about this match up is it Slows down your Blade of the ruin king and Berserker Boots purchase. The worst part about this match up is Fiora is able to parry your e or Ultimate pretty easy. ”
“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. 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.”
“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.”
“Generally an easy matchup, you don't need to use your E to win fights so she can't get good W off. Also you can bait it quite easily by running at her and cancelling your auto in front of her. Early game you win trades, and especially hard once you start stacking up your Q and Conqueror. You make it hard for her to get constant vital procs because of all the movement speed you get (Phage, Time Warp Tonic, early boots, and E). She beats you once she has her ult, but without it you beat her. After 6, never use your E if her ultimate is up. You can out trade her by just using Q's and autos while dancing around denying her vitals. Once she uses Ult on you, you can just run away with E and wait for it to run out. You beat her quite hard early but she scales much better than you. Don't fight her once she has 2-3 of her core items. Your teamfight presence and mobility is far superior to hers.”
