People crying she's op despite:

Worst gap-closer in game, 1 of the 8 champions without any cc, no durability, a passive that nasus laughs at behind her back, horrible cooldowns, no poke, no escape, and mediocre auto-attack reliant burst/sustained damage.

You can't change her kit without ruining what people like me, the real Fiora players, love about her. I love lunging into the enemy, parrying their attack, dashing onto them again when they try to run, and of course getting triple kills under the enemy tower when they thought they were safe. She is perfect, she is an all in, win or lose, no back down type of champ. The only thing that could and probably should be changed about her is her parrying should reflect on hits. We have been saying it should since her release day. Take no dmg but the stun still hits? No that stun should get a big return to sender stamped on it too. And lets face it would just be fun to throw someones own cc back at them.
I don't want her changed either. But I think if anyone can keep her identity, it is Guinsoo.

He's ****ing brilliant.
He's really not. Guinsoo is incredibly hit or miss and has a tendency to not address core problems with champion kits and a tendency to release things massively overtuned. Look back at what he did with Gangplank. Can you honestly say that was a good rework?

Fiora doesn't have an identity to preserve, unless you count "Brain dead, point and click burst that can't miss, with zero depth" as an identity. That's the problem. Regardless of whether she's bad or good, Fiora's kit has enormous problems and really shouldn't exist in the game.

That was a long time ago though. Riot handled reworks much differently back then than they do now.

Because there's nothing to rework about Soraka?

She's a dedicated healer. It doesn't get much simpler then that in terms of champion function. A rework wouldn't really do almost anything to her, since if she had MORE heals then she does, she'd be overbearing and even more situationally powerful, and if she had less heals then she does, she wouldn't be a dedicated healer anymore.

They have confirmed that a rework for Soraka is in the works. It has a long ways to go though.

Morello's hints lead to the idea of her no longer being a dedicated healer.

Probably because Fiora has no identity, as her "perceived duelist identity" is a lie.
