Girls at Arms!
Hey there, brave summoners!
Here I am again talking about a new Champion joining the mighty Fields of Justice: Fiora, The Grand Duelist!
It’s really nice to see Riot investing on non-mage female champions, right? They are so cool! Starting with Vayne, then we had Leona, Riven and Shyvana. They are all great heroes, let’s hope for the same with Fiora!
Talking about her mechanisms now, what first caught my attention was her passive. With the recent nerfs on pots, lifesteal and spellvamp itens, and supporters like Sona and Soraka (as mentioned by WatchMeSC on his awesome Quintessence Choice guide) sustain is becoming a really rare resource, and Fiora’s duelist has the potential to give her crazy lane sustain. On a solo lane against another melee champ, it’ll be really hard to harass this lady because of her stack gain.
I don’t have much to say about her 3 skills. Her Q is pretty much Renekton’s Slice and Dice; Ripost seems very nice, but I don’t think it will send an AP skill back to it’s caster, the “reflects magic damage” probably refers to magic damage added on auto-attacks, like Wit’s End. Her E gives Fiora great mobility, aside from Attack Speed, and combined with the passive AD gain from her W, this skill makes this duelist a really strong hero!
Finally, her Ultimate was another thing that made me pay attention to this chick. The ability to hit all opponents on the screen without been able to be targeted? TELL ME ABOUT NIGHTMARE! This single skill has the potential to turn the tides on a team fight!
What about you, summoner? What are your toughts on Fiora? I’d love to hear your opinions, feel free to comment below!
