League of Legends introduces Fiora
League of Legends has prepared a new champion: Fiora, the Grand Duelist.
The Fiora patch introduces the new champion, described as the “first true melee carry since the initial launch of League of Legends.” The champion offers a Lunge, Burst of Speed, Riposte, and Blade Waltz in her skill set. The patch also makes changes for several champions, including Lux, Olaf, and Ziggs, plus additional game tweaks including adjustments to colorblind mode and Co-Op vs. AI.

Fiora, The Grand Duelist
- Duelist (passive) – Fiora regenerates health over 6 seconds each time she deals damage. Striking champions will cause this effect to stack up to 4 times.
- 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.
- Riposte – Fiora’s Attack Damage is increased. When activated, Fiora parries the next basic attack and reflects magic damage back to the attacker. Works against champions, monsters, and large minions.
- Burst of Speed – Fiora temporarily gains additional Attack Speed. Each basic attack or Lunge she lands during this time increases her Movement Speed. Killing a champion refreshes the cooldown on Burst of Speed.
- Blade Waltz (ultimate) – Fiora dashes around the battlefield to deal physical damage to enemy champions. Successive strikes against the same target deal less damage.
