This.Firora really shouldn't be able to do anything to you...in fact her Repel dodges Blade Waltz if i'm not mistaken. On top of hourglass, you should be able to mitigate 100% of her burst.
Doesn't mean your wrong though. If you have less than 100 armor your essentially going to get hit for true damage with the current prevailing builds. You further complicated your problem by building armor to mitigate ArPen... which is designed to mitigate your armor. That said, I agree completely though that ArPen is a little out of control. It's function should be mitigating some armor to do more damage... not all of it.
Build more HP items if you're getting outplayed in the future as you won't see any benefit from armor if enemy is building BC/LW.
