Hoping the Heimerdinger rework is a top priority now, would be great to finally have him usable again!

She actually doesn't seem anything like Master Yi

She has very good AD scalings, almost like an assassin. Her steroid isn't really that useful for autoattacking someone to death like Master Yi, either. It just seems like it's there to add onto her burst.

While Master Yi is more useful in taking down towers+objectives and dueling people 1v1, Fiora is mainly best at bursting someone to death before they even get a chance to react

She's similar to Zed, Kha'zix, and Talon, except they do the job better due to having CC and an escape

No offense, but I really hope the coming gameplay improvements on Master Yi will be more significant than those teeny buffs like MP cost reduction on Alpha Strike and increasing the duration of his ult at lower levels.

Not saying those buffs were bad though..

I feel like Riposte is one of her stronger skills, especially during early game. That said, I do have an idea on making it scale more into late-game while nerfing its early-game strength.

Simply make it reflect a portion of the enemy's total AD (plus a base damage) when an enemy lands an auto attack on her.

This would balance her much more in favor of dealing with AA-based champions and grant the skill actual scaling (since Fiora never builds AP and won't improve itself through its passive).

Maybe it would be a bit about her sustain being super ****ty considering she has to be engaged with something in order to get. GP can just eat oranges, Yi meditates, Fiora has to engage the enemy to get hp5.

Currently, not viable, but it's something that can be done.

Yep. It's more noise tan truth that Fiora's bad. If you're sub-plat, play Fiora and win all you'd like.

This is more about improving the character, not buffing it. There's different levels of depth to the work and design for those.

As far as design-driven total reworks, yes he is.

I've been trying to find a way to do it using lifesteal runes + masteries (9% lifesteal) and her burst of speed, but jungle Irelia is still much better than Fiora in that regard :/
