Another important thing is life steal but I assume you knew that. You should be able to win if you farm more and build to counter.
I don't Towerdive Rumble, that shield's OP. He was tower diving me :P He simply just could take too much with that shield and my trades couldn't compete. Even though I tried to bait the shield out, he just saved it until I activated my E and there was nothing I could do.
I actually Run Armor yellows/MR Blues/Armor Pen Reds/Lifesteal Quints on Fiora.
Frozen Mallet seems entirely wasted on Fiora, as she has the gap closer and the stickyness from her E and she needs to be able to do damage. I just cannot compete with Rumble.
Since Fiora is my main Top, I've came to this conclusion over at least 30 different games trying Frozen Mallet, and I find every time another item does me better. Since I have over 100 games with her, I'm going to follow my intuition here.
As far as trading with Rumble, I did. I would let him get close enough, Auto-E-Auto-Q-Q-> Minion to get 4 stacks of my passive and get away before he could do anything but flame.
I was still losing these trades, which I found absurd the second time because I executed flawlessly what I wanted to and he still ended up having little damage done compared to my damage sustained, even after my passive healed me up.
I know its a tought match up, I was just hoping someone had some insight that I didn't have as I just don't know how to deal with Rumble up top. Its only 2 games so far, but I'd still rather face a Teemo than a Rumble right now.
