Summoner Spells Back to Top

                                     Introduction

I want to introduce one of my favourite champs Ahri, starting with summoner spells.
Ahri is a great champ with very good crowd control and high mobility. She is not that easy to master, because of her skill shots, but you will love her, when you learned, how to play her.

                                 Summoner Spells


14.png4.png - This is my usually played combo. The flash is a kind of self explaining, because Ahri is as many ap Champions not very tanky, so flash is good for escaping, but due to her long ranged skills, u can easily chase an enemy by flashing towards him, if he wants to escape, and pick up a kill( how is explaind at Skills). Another thing is, that flash works great with Ahri's Ultimate.
And it appears often to be that a champions just escapes with very little hp, therefore Ignite is a great choice to finish of wounded enemies, due to its true damage.

4.png7.png - A pretty defensive combo, if you have the feeling, that you getting damage very fast and didn't play Ahri much, you can go with heal to survive. But I really recommend to play Ignite in the middle.

Remember: R>Q>W>E


    1. Essence Theft-

This is a powerful passive to heal yourself. If you see your passive is up( you need to hit your spells 9 times before) use your Orb on a minion wave, to get massive heal. Or just heal on enemy champions in fight, through hitting them with your spells  Fox Fire -Charme-Spirit Rush.

    2. Orb of Deception -


This is your main damage skill. It is very important to get a touch to its range , because you have to hit it. As a skillshot it propably takes you time to learn it, but practice will help. As for every skillshot, I recommend to use Smart Cast. The interesting thing of this skill is, that on his way forward, it deals magic damage, and backwards it deals true damage, so if you have a situation, where you feel your ball just hits the enemy once, it goes forward and backward right away so you can hit twice, try to hit the enemy on the way back, and you can be astonished seeing the melting hp.Also important is, that the skill will deal damage to every "living" thing in its way, and it wont be lowered by hitting something. So try to  hit as many enemies as possible in team fights.


    3. Fox Fire -


This Skill is also for dealing damage. And it deals much damage, if it is used right.
By using it you are surrounded by 3 flames, which fly to enemies in range(champions, minions) preferring champions, and dealing damage.


    4. Charm-


This is one of the skills, which really makes playing Ahri so fun. Like the Orb it is a Skillshot. So hitting needs practice.This Skill shoots a heart in a lane hitting the first enemy on its way, and the enemy(champions or minion) will get taunted, that means he is running towards you unable to do a skill. It is also good to help teammates, which are running from enemies, hit them with your Charme, to let your teammate escape.
With this skill you can try your first combo, hit Charm-Orb-Fox Fire to deal massive damage. The most mid champions will have half hp after you hit this combo.

    5. Spirit Rush-



This is the ultimate of Ahri, granting her great mobility. It is like a flash for three times. By activating this skill you flash in the direction of your cursor, and you deal damage to enemies in your range by sending out 3 flames passively. Then you got 1 second CD for the next flash. However try to use it at least 10 seconds after your first flash, otherwise your ultimate will be gone, same for the 3rd on. In combination with Fox Fire you deal great damage with this Ultimate. You can use it to chase or escape, but it is really usefull to close the gap between you and the enemy to maybe hit your charme .
Sure the Flash works out well with it, because you can flash 4 times, nothing to be underestimated.

Through this there is the next combo versus one enemy. If he is near you just start off with the standard combo, and then make sure to ultimate after him. Main rule in this is, keep your skills on CD, so you must activate Fox-Fire and the Orb as often as possible, to deal the most damage.
If the enemy is further away just use your Ultimate for gap closing or dealing more damage and follow with your standard combo.

Laning phase:

It's important to notice, that Ahri is very good at roaming, because of her mobility. So you will want to push your lane and get some roaming going. But beware of ganks. You should always get at least one side warded. Try to focus on bot, beacuse of the drake control you gain, and the 2 guys you will want to get fed.

For Team fights:


Make sure to always know what happens in the team fights, never loose the overview.
Basically you will stay behind using your Q and E, then you will acivate your W then use your R to get in, and depending on how the trade is going ,ulti out, then you will again use your Q, and see what happens, if the fight runs for you ult back in, with W activated, and use your left skills to kill. If you have problems in the fight ult away and you will nearly never die.
But in every team fight, it depends on your judgement, what you will do.

    My standard build
    More Sustain
    POKE
    High burst
Start: 1056_32.png2003_32.png2003_32.png



I recommend to start with it, to have good poke and get a little mana back. It's also great for sustaining in early game.




CORE:1056_32.png1056_32.png3165_32.png3089_32.png3255_32.png




2 1056_32.png will help you to deal a little more damage, have more sustain, and fewer mana problems.
Get 3255_32.png or 3165_32.png next to get even more burst, and mana reg. Also the Boots are good for roaming.
With 3089_32.png completed, you can start to oneshot people.
After that Rabadon's is a must have for every AP.
Consider taking 3001_32.png 1st or 2nd, if you face high burst dmg.

I get homeguards liek everytime, because they are so good, to get to places, where you want to go , very fast.




MID/LATE:3001_32.png3157_32.png3135_32.png3151_32.png



Then I go for 3135_32.png . Now oneshoting is inevitable.

You can decide between Loudens Echo and 3157_32.png now, if you didn't pick up 3001_32.png.
Ludens Echo will increase your burst damage very hard, 3157_32.png will give you more safety. The passive can be teamfight deciding. If you see you get focused very hard, don't hesitate to use it. You bait the enemies to wait for you to be targetable again, at this time your ADC can have free damage on the enemies.





Optional:3116_32.png3174_32.png



For more sustain choose 3116_32.png, you will get much hp with it. And more importantly you slow your enemy, this is a really viable option for 3157_32.png.

Facing mana problems or high magi damage burst you can buy 3174_32.png. Complete this item as first then.
It is a great choice instead of 3157_32.png due to its extra damage. Use it when you aim to hit your ultimate or Fox - Fire.
If you're super fed and clearly the first one to build your last item, consider 3146_32.png , it will help you to kill likely everything.

VS

Ahri

Hard

Just too hard to deal with that fox!

VS

Akali

Medium

Try to get ahead before lvl 6 , afterwards she can dish out ridiculously amounts of damage. But if she jumps on you use your charm, and you should outtrade her

VS

Anivia

Easy

Should be quite easy. Most important is to dodge her Stun, with your mobility you cause much problems for Anivia

VS

Annie

Hard

Really hard matchup. After level 6 she can just oneshoot you with flash tibbers/stun.
Consider to get early MR like Abyssal Scepter

VS

Brand

Easy

Shouldnt be hard for you, just dodge his pillar. If you hit 1 charm he will drop very hard.
After level 6 you are very mobile, if you didnt fall behind you can pretty much all-in him.
If he uses his pillar dodge with your ult, and follow up with charm. Shouldnt be hard to outtrade him like this or even kill him.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Can be quite hard, as she just needs to hit one Q and dish out a lot of damage. So can you too by hitting Charm and Orb. So you will want to dodge her Q anyhow. After level 6 you have great mobility but be careful to not face her ultimate.

VS

Diana

Hard

Really hard to play against. You have to outfarm her early, with harassing. Maybe you manage to get a kill before lvl 6. Afterwards it's tough.
If u manage to get ahead early you should be able to snowball. But be aware of the fact, that a missed charm can cost your life...

VS

Fizz

Hard

It's a very hard matchup, he can dodge your skills with his 2 jumps(Q, E).
He does ridiculously amounts of damage.
You should try to harras him with your Orb early on, but stay out of his range, so he cant jump you. You shouldnt try to 1v1 him, because he can dodge nearly everything. Try to farm as much as possible and roam to help your team. If he uses his Playful/Trickster(E), it can be your time to strike, but you only can kill him if you hit your charm.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Not the easiest matchups but doable. Early on you should never take damage from his barrels, but you should try to get some poke down, because he is meele. If you manage to dodge his ultimate after level 6 with yours into a charm on  him, you will win this, but its not easy!

VS

Karthus

Easy

You should be happy to face him, because you are out of range for his Aoe- Ability.

Just harass him constantly, he won't have much chances to lane against you.


As he uses his Ultimate use your Charme to cancel it.

VS

Kassadin

Hard

You should have the upper hand early on, but at level 6 things could get messy, due to his shield he gets by his Q he will block much damage, and his burst is insanely high

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Not so hard anymore after her change to her Silence. Now you can instantly charm her as she jumps. Good reactions are required. For instance if she lands her Q on you, she might go for her dash, try to charm in her direction as she is approaching and u can hit her mid-air with your charm and trade more damage back than she does to you.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Its very annoying to deal with him. He can push waves faster than you. Essential is to avoid being near your minions while Malzahars dot is on it. Try to land some poke with your q, and stay out of his range, when he has his spells ready. Normally you cant just go allin on him, because he will just Ult you, thats why you have to take magic resist runes against him. As you get your 3128_32.png you can 1 shot him, if you hit your charm. The important thing here is, that you hit ur charm before you use a charge of your ultimate, so you can eventually escape if things go wrong. But with your E-DFG-Q-Ignite-W-R-R-W you should be able to burst him before he can react.

VS

Morgana

Easy

Another good match up for Ahri.

Care for her shiels if you want to use your Charme, you should easily outdamage her.

Renember to ult out of her ult range as she tries to stun you with it.

VS

Orianna

Medium

I think this is very even at least with a little upper hand for Ahri, both have skillshots, both can dodge.
Due to Ahri's high mobility you can dodge the ball, but care to not run into her Q,W,R combo, it will hurt as hell.

VS

Swain

Hard

Tough match up. Try to avoid his snare, if it hits you you will take much following damage.
Very tanky with his ult. Just try to keep your range and wait for opportunities.

VS

Syndra

Medium

This matchup is just about, who gets bursted first. For players who haven't that much expirience, it can be good to go for 3001_32.png. The magic resist will help you to deal with her burst, and don't die instantly. Also try to avoid her Balls, so that she can't stun you, with her E. If you hit your charm, you should be able to kill her, by using your Ultimate, but you have to get down your burst very fast, otherwise she can burst you with her ultimate
