So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Fiora.
Fiora is a champion with the common five skill sets of one passive and four actives. In this Fiora guide, let’s see what are her abilities in LoL Wild Rift, and when you can use which skill to be in the top form in the current rank season.
Passive – Duelist’s Dance
Reveals Vitals on nearby enemy champions. Striking Vital deals 2.5% (2.5% 0.045% bonus AD) of the target’s max health as true damage heals Fiora for 45, and grants her 30% Movement Speed (based on Grand Challenge’s rank), decaying over 1.75s. New Vitals are revealed after striking one or after 16.75s
The passive is an important part of Fiora’s gameplay, almost like the active skills. While playing, you may notice a marker in an angle from nearby enemy champions. These can be considered as sort of weak points or vitals. So, attacking or poking the enemy from that direction deals extra damage while healing and boosting the movement speed of Fiora.
Skill 1 – Lunge
Lunges and stabs a nearby enemy, dealing 85 physical damage (85 +100% bonus AD) in an area. Hitting an enemy refunds 60% of the cooldown. Lunge prioritizes Vitals and enemies it will kill. Applies on-hit effects to the primary target.
The skill is as simple as it has been described. You just have to reposition yourself and use the skills to hit the vitals reflected due to the passive skills. The skill is simple but one of the most important active skills of Fiora. The skill is used to poke or initiate fights. The priority of lunge hitting an enemy is it will target the vitals first, then an enemy who would die after the hit, then champions or minions. An important part of this skill is when it hits something, it will have a low cooldown period, but when it hits nothing the cooldown period is long.
Skill 2 – Riposte
Parries all incoming damage and debuffs for the next 0.75 seconds. Then stabs in the target direction, dealing 120 magic damage (120 + 100 AP) to the first enemy champion, slowing their Movement Speed and Attack Speed by 50% for 1.5 seconds. Riposte stuns instead of slows if it parries an immobilizing effect.
The skill is a defensive tool of Fiora and is considered to be the gamechanger during duel fighting. During this, she becomes invulnerable to any attacks (expect turrets) and does a little AoE damage reducing enemy movement speed. With this skill available, Fiora can jump into any fights with Lunge skill. The skill is a great advantage against CC champions like Lux, Jinx, Gragas, etc.
Skill 3 – Bladework
Empowers the next 2 attacks with 60% Attack Speed. The first attack applies a 30% slow for 1s, but cannot critically strike. The second attack always critically strikes for 170% physical damage.
The skill is a boost to the attack stats of Fiora. It increases the attack speed with two quick attacks, one slow one and the other a fast one doing critical damage. The skill can be combined with Lunge to do heavy damage.
Skill 4 – Grand Challenge
Reveals all 4 Vitals on an enemy champion for 8 seconds and grants Duelist’s Dance’s Movement Speed while near them. Striking all 4 Vitals in 8 seconds or if the target dies after at least one hit- heals Fiora and nearby allies for 80 (80 +60% bonus AD) each second. The heal persists for 2 to 5 seconds, scaling with the number Vitals hit.
The skill is a bursting tool of Fiora where all the vitals of the enemy champion is revealed. If you have mastered Fiora, then Grand Challenge is a great way of winning fights against higher level champions or champions with more gold earned.
Skill Up Methods for Fiora
Skill up the Ultimate whenever it is available. Regarding other skills, upgrade the 1st skill, then the 2nd skill, and lastly the 3rd skill. But first, unlock every skill, then follow the chronology.

League of Legends: Wild Rift Fiora Gameplay Tips and Tricks
Fiora can be used to be played in the Dragon Lane as Support. The reason behind this, being since the champion can be a Support with Magic Damage. According to her skills and gameplay, Fiora can be rated as difficult to use champion as she requires precision to bring maximum damage. Her application of skills is also specific and returns maximum output when used perfectly. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Fiora guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid and late game in the game.
The early game will start with Fiora laning the Baron lane. To start with, move directly to the enemy bush and hide so that when the enemy appears, you can start attacking the vitals with ease. This way you can have an advantage in the laning phase. Try to get kills in this phase, as Fiora can bully the opponents in the early game.
During, the entire game remember to start a fight with all your skills available. Fiora’s gameplay is entirely dependent on active skills and the basic attacks are not of much importance. The use of lunge becomes very handy during the early game, with lots of poking and winning laning phase.
If good momentum is received during the early game with Fiora getting kills, then try to have more 1v1 battle and pushing turrets simultaneously.
If Fiora has lost the laning phase, then try keeping low and focus on split pushing. Takedown enemies with low health or ambushing escaping enemies.
If Fiora has been fed nicely by the opponents, then go for 1v2 battles. But, the objective should also be to split push, and takedown turrets. Fiora is not for team battle as she is good at taking one enemy at a time. Fiora should single out the enemies and take them out when their skills are on cooldown.
The teleport option, if available, try to either take down enemies who are roaming alone or take down enemies. Additionally, you can perform these combos to gain an upper hand on the battlefield.
- Normal Combo : Skill 1 + Skill 2 + Basic + Skill 3 + Basic
- Advanced Combo : Skill 1 + Ultimate + Basic + Skill 3 + Basic + Skill 2 + Basic + Skill 1
Fiora can be countered by champions like Vayne, Malphite & Teemo, so beware of them.
Fiora is considered to be an A-tier champion with the ability to deal with top Baron lane champions like Gragas or Darius. She is the strongest duelist in the game who can be played as a fighter, carry, or tank. Her Skill 1 has a low cooldown allowing her to have an edge with mobility skills. Moreover, her ultimate can heal ally champions which is pretty helpful during the late game team fights.
The issue lies when Fiora gets into a team fight, she cannot stay in a team fight for long. She can just poke in, get the kill and get out. She is primarily good for 1v1 battles. To be pro in Fiora in Wild Rift, one needs to practice more and more with good knowledge of skills and their effects, so that the skill can be used with precision, and if stuck don’t hesitate to fall back to this guide for tips.
