Most melee carries have some sort of ability that renders other abilities useless against them. (Ex. Trynd's undying rage, Yi's Highlander, Jax's Counter strike, etc...) Fiora has one ability and it's to be untargettable, it's also really inconsistent. I agree with you guys needing to work with reposte and make her a true duelist. I say, don't make her super squishy or keep her that way and come up with something amazing with reposte such as... a duelist, the longer you fight them the stronger they get, her passive is great, make it scale better into late game? Reposte, imagine in real life when a person parries a blow and strikes back.. the other person is vulnerable for a split second, should the next attack crit the target that hit fiora? make it a duration to where she enters a defensive stance and for every attack that hits fiora she gains a stack that works with her E? (That way there is a penalty if she activates her E early or too late) Just an idea...

Lower riposte's duration, increase its cooldown, and make it have a shorter cooldown than current if you successfully parry stuff.

Raises her skillcap, makes it possible for melee champions to bait ripostes out of her, (giving them something for successfully baiting them) and makes her better at killing ranged ADCs.

(I'm mostly joking)

This is more about improving the character, not buffing it. There's different levels of depth to the work and design for those.
"Improve" but not "buff". u wot m8?

2 little changes to Fiora would make her perfect. Make riposte an actual auto-attack, and give the second use of lunge a minor slow.

The first change allows her to get ahead of her opponent by getting a full auto-attack in on them. The second gives her just a little bit more sticking power, but also has some counter-play in that it's only on the second lunge.

I think all Fiora's lunge really needs is for both casts to send her behind the target she lunges to.

No. Fiora is bad.
The only remotely good thing she has is her ult, but the chance you're going to do ideal damage with it is very low, and against any competent team you will die for using it.

I don't know how you think she has a high skill floor, because she absolutely does not.

She is a top laner with no CC, one skill that is almost entirely useless in lane, and is outdamaged by any other top laner. As a jungler she doesn't get enough farm to do anything either.
