Best Fiora Counters in League of Legends

Do you need help to lane against Fiora in League of Legends? Not to worry, here are the best champions to help you climb the LoL ladder.

Fiora is the ultimate duelist in League of Legends. She is one of the strongest 1v1 champions in the game, and you want to avoid getting into an isolated battle against her. Even if you have hard CC for her, she can parry it away, most likely stunning you in return. So, how do you counter Fiora? ESTNN brings you the three best champions into Fiora in League of Legends.

Best Fiora Counters in LoL


Quinn is a really strong pick into Fiora right now, and according to multiple LoL stat websites, arguably the best. Quinn has the range advantage on Fiora at all times during the laning phase, so it is difficult for them to get on top of you, which they must do to apply damage. Even with Fioras’ passive, once she dashes in, you should be able to get a good trade onto you. Stattik Shiv is a must-build item for this lane. The idea is you want to be able to shove Fiora under tower, Shiv will help you with this and it is a fairly cheap item to build. You should spike earlier than Fiora because of the item price difference, so be sure to look for a kill around this time.

Rek’Sai is one of the latest additions to the Top Lane in League of Legends. And was recently played in the LEC and should see more play later in the year. Rek’Sai is a great champion for melee champions, which Fiora is. The key to playing Rek’Sai top is to go for a tankier build, procking Grasp of the Undying as much as possible, and utilizing Rek’Sais’ W, which can be used very frequently. The key is to go underground, knock her up with your W, auto attack to prock Grasp, and walk away. Even if Fiora uses her riposte, you will have your W up before she has her W up, meaning once her parry is on cooldown, you have free reign to damage her.


Warwick is a very strong pick into Fiora, mainly due to his early game damage, which can catch players off guard. Warwick heals the more health he has missing, which is where most players get baited in because he gets bonus attack speed and more healing, dependent on his health. So look to trade with Fiora in the early levels. Most Warwick players will also take barrier in this match-up, simply because Top Laners are not likely to account for barrier as they go for a low HP trade. Once Warwick has the lead, Fiora is basically out of the game, and you should be able to kill her a couple more times.

Worst Champions To Pick Into Fiora In League of Legends

Tanks are the worst type of champion to pick into Fiora in League of Legends. Right now, Ornn has the worst performance stats against Fiora, mainly because most of his abilities can proc Fiora’s stun. Ornn needs to be up close to inflict any damage; this is where Fiora thrives, as she is able to proc her passive. It’s very difficult for Ornn to keep the lane fairly neutral unless he does not use any abilities, which only benefits the Fiora side of the matchup. If Ornn is pushed up the lane, Fiora will have no problems mowing him down.

Like Ornn, Fiora has a pretty easy time playing into Sion. Fiora has two ways of countering Sion’s biggest damage ability: his Q. Use parry or Q to avoid taking any damage from Sion, likely stunning him in the process. Armor pen is the way to go in these tank matchups, as most will likely build Sunfire first. If you are quick enough, you can even block his ultimate with your dash as he is trying to escape. Once his ultimate is down, he really has no kill pressure onto you even if there is Jungle intervention.

Vladimir right now has one of the lowest win-rates against Fiora in League of Legends. Most Fiora players will look to rush Executioners Calling in order to limit the amount of healing Vladimir will do. This is combo’d by the fact Vladimir has a relatively weak early game, which means Fiora will have the advantage, especially if she rushes for Grevious Wounds. Vlad also has rather long cooldowns in the early game, so look to abuse this problem by going for constant trades with him. Do your best to fight Vladimir when there are minions around, Vlads’ E can be blocked by minions, so he will not be as strong as he can be in an empty lane. Once Vladimir's pool is down, this is when you should be looking to kill him, as he will have a hard time escaping you once you have your ultimate and Ghost summoner spell up.
