Welcome to my Azir Guide!


Azir is the most fun Champion I played so far!

He has the potential to carry every game, if you know how to play him. There is no Champion with such a nice Kit and such a huge "addiction factor" :-D


In this guide I'll show you how to play Azir as most efficent and most useful you can play in my opinion!

I'm not saying, that this is the way you have to go! I'm just sharing my knowledge about Azir with you :)

If there are any questions you have, then feel free to comment.


If my guide helped you, feel free to rate and press the like button :)


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


Lets start with the speels for Azir.

You have a big selection of spells you can choose from to play Azir in midlane. Because you're allowed to play Azir in many different playstyles.


----------------

4.png + 21.png This is for the most save playstyle you can go for! (recommended)

----------------

4.png + 3.pngExhaust is a great spell to counter AD opponents and assassins(great for late game!)

----------------

4.png + 14.pngIgnite is great for a very aggressiv playstyle, especially in early game!

----------------


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


I recommand using Barrier, because you can counter Ignite. You're also able to avoid getting killed by combos from enemy midlaners, such as Fizz or LeBlanc.

A well used barrier can save your life!


Exhaust is great VS. AD midlaners such as Zed, Talon or Yasuo. You can easily counter their ultimates and combos against you. But not only vs AD enemies is this spell useful. Especially in late game you're allowed to reduce their movement speed and attack speed by 30%, their armor and magic restist by 10, and their damage dealt by 40% for 2.5 seconds. Which means they dont deal any damage, even if they are fed :-D


Next we got the ignite on Azir! I'd prefer playing with Ignite a few weeks ago, but especially in ranked games it's very risky. I would take this spell just if you have an easy matchup such as Ryze or Veigar.



There are also some not so popular spells on Azir. There are often just used by beginners or just for testing.

----------------

4.png + 12.pngGoodfor splitpushing and roaming!

----------------

4.png + 7.pngDont know why you should take this instead of 21.png !

----------------

4.png + 1.pngGood vs hard CC!

Masteries Back to Top

AzirGuide3Masteries.png


Why you go for this masteries?


In this section I'll tell you why I took this masteries and which masteries are also possible on Azir.


These masteries you see above are in my opinion, the best masteries you can use on Azir. The Thunderlord gives you a huge burst dmg till mid game. I switched from "Intelligence" to "Precison" because the magic pen. is very strong! And since we dont get that often to lategame its useless taking 45% more cooldown, especially in higher Elo.

The cookies are great to last longer and farm longer. But I'm going for Assassian because I think 2% more Damage on Azir is great to have a stronger early game and 10 mana from the cookies is nothing.

You could also skill "Bounty Hunter" in Ferocity instead of "Oppressor". This is good, if you think youre going to wreck the game and try to carry. I prefer using the Oppressor, because Rylai's fits perfect to this mastery point. You're also dealing 2,5% more Damage in early game. You'd need to kill 3 different enemys to get the same :/


"With this masteries you have 5,5% more damage with every single attack you do to an enemy. You could also go for Sorcery to deal 2% more which would mean you deal 7,5% more damage. But our main damage comes from our soldiers. And with Fury we can attack more often which means we deal more often more damage!"


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


How good is Deathfires Touch?


AzirGuide31812.png


These masteries are very very good on Azir. Lolking once made a comparison between Thunderlords and Deathfires Touch. You can read it here:"http://www.lolking.net/news/choosing-your-keystones-tld-dft"


These masteries are very good especially for late game, because Deathfires Touch is going to deal more damage then thunderlords. So why should i go for Thunderlords instead of Deathfire if its so much better?


Well Thunderlords is better for early and mid game, and Deathfire is for very late game. But DF (Deathfire) is also well in midgame. It just it depends on your opinion, which you prefer more.


But Deathfires Touch is a good and useful choice on Azir, but maybe not worth the Thunderlords.

AzirGuide3Abilities.png


 azirpassive.png Shurima's Legacy azirpassive.png


"Azir can summon the Disc of the Sun from the ruins of allied or enemy turrets"

You're literally able to summon a new turret, which functions like a normal turret but grants you any gold it earns from killing minions. The cooldown is 180 seconds and it starts after its being destroyed. The cooldown of this passive is not reduced by CDR.


As well if an enemy champion is destroying your turret, he grants 100 gold. So dont waste it. Place the turret if you're rushing the enmey base, so you can not get killed from behind.


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


azirQ.png Conquering Sands azirQ.png


"Azir orders all Sand Soldiers to dash toward the target location, dealing magic damage to all enemies they pass through and slowing them by 25% for 1 second"


This ability is used to move your Soldiers and attack your enemies. You max this first, because it will give you the most damage you can deal with Azir.

Magic Damage: 65 / 85 / 105 / 125 / 145 (+ 50% AP)

Remember not to spam this ability too much! Your mana will drop very fast, which makes you useless. You can reduce the CD with runes and items.


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


 azirW.png Arise! azirW.png


Passive

Bonus Attack Speed: 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60%


Active

"Azir summons an untargetable at the target location for 9 seconds, expiring twice as fast while within range of an enemy turret, and expire instantly if Azir moves too far away"


When Azir attacks an enemy in a soldier's range, the soldier attacks in his stead, dealing magic damage to all enemies in a line. Multiple soldiers can strike the same target, with each soldier beyond the first dealing 25% damage. You can only command soldiers when near them.

Youcan cast Arise! on top of an enemy turret to sacrifice a soldier and deal 60 - 230 (based on level) (+ 40% AP) magic damage...


We max this as second, because we want the attack from the passive.


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


azirE.png Shifting Sands azirE.png


"Azir dashes to one of his Sand Soldiers, dealing magic damage to enemies he passes through. Ifyou hit an enemy  champion, he stops and gains a shield for 4 seconds"


Magic Damage: 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+ 40% AP)

Shield: 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+ 15% bonus health)


We max this as third...

AzirGuide3BlueString.png


azirR.png Emperor's Divide azirR.png


"Azir calls forth a shield-wall of soldiers from behind him which charge in the target direction, knocking back enemies and dealing magic damage"


When the soldiers finish their charge, they stand as a wall, blocking enemy champion movement and dashes. You and your alliescan pass through the wall and gain 20% bonus movement speed. But remember these soldiers can not move or attack ...


Magic Damage:
150 / 225 / 300 (+ 60% AP)

Width: 4 / 5 / 6 soldiers

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Normal start! - Buy 2. Doran's Ring after first backport
    Build codex first after you bought 2. doran's ring

Core Items

    Upgrade to nashor's tooth
    Rylais > Rabadon > Void Staff
    Example Fullbuild

Situational Items

    Build this first, if you lose your lane and you fight vs an AP enemy
    Build this item, if you die a lot and can't handle anything :D
    Instead of Ludens Eco if you have a strong AD enemy team
    Instead of ludens eco if you want to be more tanky
    Strong first item, but I like double Dorons ring more! - More information below ;)

AzirGuide3Items.png


Item Buildpath:



 1056.png > 1056.png > 3108.png > 3101.png > 3115.png > 3020.png > 3116.png > 3089.png > 3135.png > 3285.png or 3151.png



1056.png Why double Doran's ring? 1056.png


First you get enough mana regeneration from the rings, also you just need to pay 800 Gold instead of 2550 Gold for Morellomonicon. You're also faster able to buy Nashor's Tooth and you have 1 more item slot in late game. This means you can buy Ludens Eco, which gives you 100AP and an unique passiv instead of 80AP from Morellomonicon!! You also get enough CDR from your runes and Nashor's Tooth.

AzirGuide3BlueString.png


3116.png Why Rylais before Rabadon's? 3116.png


The passiv of Rylai's is perfect for Azir and synergizes perfectly with Oppressor (mastery point). I also like to be more tanky in mid game and the +400 Health is perfect. With which part you start building Rylai's doesn't matter. I start building 1058.png or 1011.png. It just depends on how much gold I have.


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


91.png What Items do I need vs AD Enemys? 157.png


First you start with 1 Dorans Ring and 2 Healpotions 2003.png. After your first backport you buy another Doran's Ring 1056.png and start normally building Nashor's Tooth. You can now choose between Sorcerer's Shoes 3020.png and 3047.png. I'd choose Ninja Tabies if you're losing your lane really hard.


If you dominate your lane just buy sorcerer shoes. If you really cant do anything buy 3157.png before Nashor's Tooth and ask your jungler to gank your lane.

AzirGuide3BlueString.png


105.png What Items do I need vs AP Enemys? 7.png


I normally buy double Doran's Ring and start building Nashor's Tooth. But if I see that I'm losing my lane, I start building 3001.png as first item before Nashor's.


Abysaal Scepter is perfect in early and mid game vs AP Enemys. You get +50 Magic Resitance and also 70AP. You also deal more damage because of the unique Aura, which reduces the magic resitance of your enemy by 20!


You also could buy Mecury's Treads 3111.png instead of Sorcerer's Shoes 3020.png. But beware you lose your magic penetration, which means you deal less damage. Just buy them if you really need to!


AzirGuide3BlueString.png


3151.png Some Situational Items in depth! 3026.png


3026.pngGuardian Angel - This Item is my last way out to prevent destroying my K/D. But you can use this item also if you want much more magic resitance and armor resitance. You get +60 Magic Resist and +60 Armor which is enough to last longer in teamfights. But I dont recommand using this item to become more tanky. I mainly use this if the enemy team is focusing me. And thats the way you should use it too ;)


Line.png


3151.pngLiandry's Torment - This item is great vs a tanky enemy team with a lot of HP. First the +300 Health is great to make you more tanky too. Also if you combine this with Rylai's you get +700 Health!! Thats insane!


The passiv is perfect against your tank enemys. Your spells burn enemies for 3 seconds, dealing bonus magic damage equal to 2% of their current Health per second! Buy this item after Rylai's or Rabadon's Deathcap


Line.png


3157.pngZhonya's Hourglass - This item is great vs an AD enemy team. You get +45 Armor which lets you stay longer alive. Also the unique active is great if you're getting focused in teamfights and you want to force your enemys to attack your teammates instead of you. You could also buy this item instead of Ludens Eco 3285.png , if you like the active of Hourglass more then Ludens Eco.


Line.png


1311.png1310.pngEnchantments - I like to enchant my Shoes after I bought Rabadon's Deathcap. The "Red Enchantment / Furor" is great on Azir. If you're dealing damage to a champion with a single target attack or spell the enchantment grants you a 12% movement speed boost that decays over 2 seconds. This is perfect if you want to kill you enemys before they run into their base or behind the tower


The "Green Enchantment / Alacrity" increases our movement speed by 20 which means we run in

general faster. I like to take this enchantment if my team destroyed a lot of the enemy turrets or if I need to
defend my base.

Some Information about me :) Back to Top

__gravelord_azir___by_purpchan-d9iv3qr.p

This is my first guide ever. I made this guide to show you how to play Azir on my way and game style.

I felt in love with Azir, when I first started playing him, when he was free for one week.


He's the most fun champion I played in League of Legends yet and he has a huge potential to carry every game :D

I'm trying a lot of item builds and masteries builds and I want to share my results with you.


I also first started playing League of Legends when Season 2 was released. But I never really started playing LoL very active until july 2015 :) (I'm on EUW Servers)
