So Nautilus literally was just released 2 days ago and here we are, with the next champion. Fiora seems to be a fencer and she might just be a champ I buy on release day. A fencing character is just my style. She looks pretty awesome, animation and skill wise. This thread over on State of the League seems to have pulled the details from the PBE files, whatever those are.
Check out the animation below:
And here’s some other info they were able to figure out
Fiora Abilities: Taken from the PBE client, so no idea on damage numbers, etc.
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.
Blade Waltz sounds familiar =P
Tips & Items:
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.
