If you really want to counter Fiora, just remember she doesn't have an effective escape apart from her Q + E combo which she can use to juke onto you for a speed boost. Don't play too aggressively against her and ask for ganks. I would find that someone who can get in nice and easily like Rumble can be really effective.
You don't pick nasus to counter people in top lane. You pick him for a safe lane to farm. Nasus is the antithesis of top lane picks because he's a soak that carries.


Fiora's probably the weakest melee AD carry in the game at the moment because of her astronomical gear needs as well as not having an effective means to stick on people. Bizarre as it may seem, even with two soft targeted flashes and a mild MS steroid, she still has a hard time keeping pace with anyone who can reasonably kite, and she lacks any real escape mechanic, which is about half of what makes the good melee ADC's good.

Sadly true. I played an awesome game last night.. that I was owned, solo-top, by Jax. Can't parry his jump, his counter blocks most of her ult, and lunging is great!.. if you have targets ahead of you. Otherwise... think Katarina with no escape or range.

Jax Counter hard

Olaf can E to death her

Pant can Spear poke and avoid toe to toe battles

Yorick can just harras and farm with out any worry

Teemo can Blind her and dance

Riven has more Regen and a Shield, and She wins in toe to toe

Darius Can Q when shes close and stay back, if she counter with the gapcloser, he can just AA 2 times and Slow her to win the skirmish

Hard cc, ranged harass, ninja tabi, exhaust, caster.

Not that much of a player but I used to play Fiora a lot.

Yet she's the only melee ADC that realistically has to build it, and it's down around the bottom of the list of DPS items you buy to do DPS.

And this is despite half her kit being some form of stick one way or another, along with her ult.

She is Yi without the pentakill grabbing ult-reset, and Tryndamere without the 5 seconds of BS, lol. She has no escapes, and her only claim to fame is her omnislash ult, which is laughable if the enemy team can stick together.
Gank her in the laning phase, and focus her during team fights. Make sure to land one healing reduction on her before she inevitably ults to stay alive. Steer your team away and she'll pop up again on the person she ulted, which is your cue to kill her.

exhaust not only strips her of all her damage, but also kills her as it reduces her lifesteal, and makes it nearly impossible for her to escape without flash or ghost. Her only escape requires her an enemy to attack.
