Open forum about Fiora

To start this off, I never put much value on meta. I always build according to what I consider makes the most sense for me. So blind recommendations of "build what the pros build" won't really help me out. With that said, I'm interested in getting back into Fiora. Used to be decent with her, more than a year ago, but after trying her out again recently, I realized that most of my core items with her are changed. The normal build path with her used to be {{item:3161}} > {{item:3812}} into full AD with kleptomancy/cosmic insight 1-10% cdr from the minor rune. I feel like this was the perfect synergy with her since her Qaa was effectively instantaneous if you were close enough, easily getting her 1000+ gold if your lane went well. 45% CDR and the shojin passive was incredible _sustained burst_ damage with her Q on less than a second CDR. Now I'm struggling replacing both Kleptomancy AND {{item:3161}} . New conqueror doesn't quite cut it for me since I play her basically like a full AD assassin, which means fights shouldn't last long enough for me to effectively take advantage of 5 stacks. Grasp of the undying may be a nice replacement since it functions pretty similarly in playstyle to Kleptomancy but from the few games I've played with it, it seems very underwhelming although I'm not sure if that's because of the rune or myself. I've also been looking at Fleet Footwork and Electrocute. Haven't actually tried it in a game yet since I've dismissed it as a useless meme, but has anyone tried Prototype: Omnistone on Fiora or any other champion? As for builds, I don't think there's any item that fits into Fiora's kit as well as Shojin(yes, even I will say the item was OP) but as far as a replacement 20% CDR item I was thinking {{item:3508}} would be best. I'd change the full build a bit based on Essence Reaver and probably go {{item:3508}} {{item:3812}} {{item:1001}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3074}} {{item:3026}} for my full build. That, or potentially trying out what a more tanky bruiser build would be like. {{item:3022}} {{item:3001}} {{item:3193}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3065}} {{item:1001}} along with conquerer On a sidenote, Gargoyle's template may have some interesting synergy with her kit since the 40% decreased damage doesn't affect her true damage. Anyways, just writing out my thoughts helped me decide what directions I can take her new build, but I'd also be very happy to read everyone else's whiteboard theories on how best to build her.
