LoLAide v1.3.1 - Fiora and Personal Notes

  • Updated to coincide with League of Legends v1.0.0.135
    • Fiora - Skill Info, Build Guide, Counters, Synergies
    • Balance changes
  • Personal Notes
    • "Notes" tab added to each Champion's listing
    • Write down information that pertains to specific champions
    • Easily store and access your experiences and findings


  • Strong melee damage dealer
  • Multiple gap closers
  • Can quickly stack movement speed
  • Riposte gives her strong trading potential in lane
  • Sustain is easily out-classed
  • No CC
  • No poking abilities

She has a unique mix of AD burst with Lunge and Blade Waltz and the ability to dish out sustained damage thanks to Burst of Speed.  Her abilities put her in the thick of the battle, so I recommend a tanky-DPS build.  This includes Frozen Mallet to alleviate her lack of CC.

She can be played as a jungler, but I feel she lacks two vital characteristics:  fast-clearing and CC.  While she is no slouch when it comes to slaying monsters, her lack of an AOE ability results in slower clearing than Udyr and Shyvana.  She can gank with a Red buff, but other junglers will provide more CC and be able to secure more kills.  She does have the ability to tower-dive at level 6 with impunity.  

Personally, I think she belongs in top lane.  Her Duelist passive and Riposte allow her to trade well with other melee champions.  Just be wary of facing top laners with superior healing, such as Warwick and Udyr.

Who counters her:  Udyr, Warwick, Lee Sin, Irelia

Who she counters:  On paper Riposte is a good way to deal with Gangplank's Parrrley (you'll block the physical damage but still be affected by Grog-soaked Blade) and Wukong's Crushing Blow.  I'm hesitant to say she counters anyone this close to her release, but these are possibilities I've considered.  I'm interested to see how Blade Waltz interacts with AOE spells such as Kennen's Slicing Maelstrom.

Who she plays well with:  Basically anyone with a form of CC.  A tank-initiator will allow her to dish out her damage without taking the brunt of the enemies burst.  Maokai, Amumu, Kennen, and Morgana are all good options.  Speed buffs from Sivir, Gangplank, Sona, Janna, and Nunu will help her stick to her targets easily.


These should be pretty intuitive.  Click "New Note" to begin writing a note.  Pressing the "Confirm" button or pressing Back on your device will save the note.  All of the notes you've written pertaining to a champion will appear in a list.  Clicking on a listed note will open up the note editor again.  Press-and-hold a note and you will have the option of deleting it.

Future Updates

The additions of Notes was the last major feature I wanted to add to LoLAide before revising the inner-workings of the application.  Along with this revision will come new additions that people have been requesting (ratios, passives) as well as other functions like multiple build guides for each champion.  However, these changes are likely to be large in scope, and require a significant amount of time to fully develop.  As such, the next major patch (v2) should not be expected anytime within the near future.  Hopefully the next version will be worth the wait.

That being said, I don't intend to drop all other work on LoLAide.  Rest assured that I will continue to update LoLAide to reflect changes that Riot makes to League of Legends, as well as shifts in the meta-game that influence strategies.

I'm also planning on writing a few posts for this blog that aren't directly related to LoLAide.  I have a few articles in the works pertaining to champion-specific strategies and team fighting.  Let me know if you have any other topics you'd be interested in reading about.


LoLAide reached its one-thousandth download earlier this week!  I'd like to thank everyone that's downloaded the app and been kind enough to provide feedback.  As always, all are welcome to contact me through email, comments, or in-game.
