Fiora, our Next Champion, Discoved after PBE Update

Posted on at 7:32 PM by Moobeat

As mentioned earlier, this week Riot is trying out a new plan for the PBE; instead of the usual tweaks or small champion changes the internal build of the next patch will be hitting the PBE for early testing. The PBE was updated today and State of the League's Tnomad stumbled across a treasure buried deep within the new patch; the files for the next champion!

 Carrying the name Fiora, our next champion appears to be a fencer and her kit seems to reflect that of an AD Assassin with the potential of jungling.
  • Passive - Duelist: Fiora regenerates health over 6 seconds each time she deals damage. Striking champions will cause this effect to stack up to 4 times.
  • Q - Lunge: Fiora dashes forward to strike her target, dealing physical damage. Fiora can perform the dash a second time within a couple seconds at no mana cost.
  • W - Ripost: (Passive) Fiora's Attack Damage is increased. (Active) Fiora parries the next basic attack from a champion or monster and reflects magic damage back to the attacker.
  • E - Burst of Speed: Fiora gains Attack Speed for a couple seconds. Each basic attack or Lunge she lands during this time increases her Movement Speed, stacking.
  • R - Blade Waltz: Fiora dashes around the battlefield striking random champions dealing physical damage. Successive strikes against the same target deal less damage.
While the numbers are not available, this kit seems to be a sort of mix between a gap-closing fool like Riven and an auto attack eccentric champion like Master Yi.
Playing as Fiora -
Fiora's passive grants health regeneration whenever she attacks. The bonus stacks against champions so don't be afraid to fight small skirmishes and trades.

Blade Waltz deals a lot of damage, but if you save it for when the enemy team tries to attack you it also save you from taking a lot of damage. (sic)
Playing Against Fiora -
Save disables for when Fiora activates Burst of Speed-it only lasts 3 seconds and Fiora needs to deal a lot of damage while it is up to be effective.

Fiora is really sticky when she has access to Lunge, but after she casts it twice it has a fairly long cooldown which can be exploited.
Rec Items:
(Classic) Dorans, GA, IE, Bloodthirster, Merc Treads, Ghostblade

(Dominion) Prospector's, IE, Black Cleaver, Merc Treads, Ghostblade, Bloodrazer

Now that the "good stuff" is out of the way, check out the rest of 2/16 patch notes:

  1. Omg this is pure Gold!

    Thanks! (Now I will have to save money instead of getting Ziggs :( )

  2. Hot dog! I know who I will be playing with soon enough!

  3. Looks like Livia from Guild Wars

  4. Just seems like every new Champion now has a dash/gap closer...

  5. In-game models;

  6. As a fencer I am obligated to buy her.

  7. Her two skins which will come out with her at release:

  8. They adding small Golem camp? And what does that speed increase refer too? (that from 180 to 300)?

    1. This is to stop bot lane on the blue side kitting the double golems between the carry and the support, esentially giving them a third of a level and a few cs for free. It also didn't affect the jungler since it respawned fast enough. Now, bot lane will have to at least take a little bit of damage, making it a trade off rather than an outright advantage.

    to say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
