Buff fiora but add some counterplay to her ult top-lane. There's nothing I can do to mitigate that damage 1v1. Its very irritating when you're at 3/4 health and she ults you down to 1/3 early game with you having no counterplay.

yes! Everything is possible. Show the people who say Fiora's design can either be UP or OP in LOL. Show them that balance can also be achieved.

So basically a Sivir shield that only works on basic attacks + what she does now.

Just a complete removal of one of the enemy's basic attacks and everything attached to it.

This opens up an insane ammount of possibilites. Ezrael's mystic shot is completely negated, along with the iceborn gauntlet effect. Darius's Crippling blow is entirely removed, no debuff, no damage.

This is going to make her a scary, scary duelist.


Yay. :3

Except for the part where you need to have ****awesome timing to pull it off for this small increase in reward that is still easily baited.

I think that's actually what we'll have to do with a melee-carry style with Fiora. I also think it adds a lot to the fantasy of a fencer-style fighter - being able to dash aside a lot of power with a quick deflect.

It would only apply to auto-attack modifiers. On-next-hits, steroids, on-hits, etc.

It would not apply to spells (even physical damage spells) like Pantheon's Spear Shot or Olaf's Undertow.
