Summoner Spells Back to Top

Summoners can be complicated to choose for Azir, there are those who run ignite, others who run barrier? I'm here to help you out with this.

4.pngFlash: If you're not taking this you're trolling
3.pngExhaust: was nerfed recently, still strong against most melee range midlaners, even high burst champs like Syndra because a well timed exhaust will deplete most of the damage from a full spell rotation. Good summoner for all in, good summoner to defend yourself.
21.pngBarrier: Easy to use, stops high burst. Make sure you are popping this summoner when you are taking a full spell roatation. good for medium high ranged burst mages. Like lux, viktor, Brand, Syndra.

7.pngHeal: Optimal for a two person lane but superior to barrier in most case in the team fighting portion of the game. Avoid taking this summoner against mids who take ignite because halves your heal. The extra movement speed granted by heal lets you reposition in team fights as well as bait tower dives.

14.pngIgnite: tons of debate for ignite on Azir. The problem with ignite on Azirr is that it will normally only be useful in lane, once we get out of lane finding moments to use ignite will be far and few between. We are not a single target dps burst mage outside of lane, only in very specific matchups will this summoner be optimal.

1.pngCleanse: Cleanse is good for obvious reasons, it prevents cc, take this against heavy cc opponents.

Masteries Back to Top

Masteries are an interesting topic, I would go in depth but mostly what you take depends on your play style. Going into the resolve tree is also a viable option especially if you plan on playing a more passive azir.

Notable: Sorcey will do more damage than Fury.

Fresh Blood: I like it because I auto a tone outside of using my soldiers, I play an aggressive lane.

Battle Trance: any of the three can be argued for, battle trance is good for Azir because he likes extended team fights.

Death fire Touch: hits harder early and late into the game, thunderlord is better for mid game skirmishing. Both are viable and depends on playstyle.

Biscuits: delish for lane sustain, we need cs, we want to be in lane as long as possible.

Meditation: Because we take no mana regen items besides dorans rings or Dark seal, it's important to have that added regen incase were not getting blue buffs or water drags.

Picking abilities to level up is not always a straight forward process for 268.png there is a time and place for maxing W. I max W in some instances against melee AD and AP champs so that my soldiers can proc a greater number of hits when these champions come to jump on you. Hitting these champs with your Q can be tough because they are constantly kiting you157.png245.png I also max W for wave clear against champs such as 90.png who can clear a wave faster than you can look at your mini map and back to the minion wave.


(6.15) I've been playing a more traditional style Azir since his recent nerfs. I always max Q first now becasue of the damage reduction to his soldier autos.

Annie

Easy

Annie is a one trick pony, she is very predictable in her movements and the only outplay potential she has on you is a 4.png infernalguardian.png poke her down with azirQ.png while she's trying to last hit minions. Positioning is KEY!, know her range! for spells I take 1.png21.png into this matchup and I will most likely build 3165.png or 3115.png first. Max Q

this is flat out easy for Azir we can kite Jhins abilities relatively easy and we out range his autos with our azirQ.png I'm building 3165.png and taking 14.png

VS

Kassadin

Hard

Harass Kass as much as you can before he hits 6. Deny him as much farm as possible early before he hits his power spike. you can max W here first if you'd like. Im building 3115.png or 3116.png 3165.png first, no 3027.png because we want to beat his *** before he gets big. I take 14.png into this. 

VS

Katarina

Easy

you mess up Kat, just make sure you save your azirR.png for when she deathlotus.png this disrupts it. you can poke her relatively easy with your azirQ.png I take 3165.png first most likely and 14.png7.png3.png are all viable summoner spells.

LeBlanc

Lux

Malzahar

Easy

This is a farm lane. Max W here to clear minions faster, once you have 200cs at 20 min you'll have your 3027.png and then you can beat the crap out of him with your poke and clear. Not a hard matchup but you need to play smart. Im taking 14.png or 1.png or 21.png

About Me Back to Top

Hey my name is DRECKless, I started playing league season 4 and picked up on 268.png as soon as he came out. I have to say I am glad I did because he is now my main. I have taken Azir into roughly 6,000,000 ranked games, so I have a relatively good idea of how to play him. I also love Azir because he was my escape from ELO hell and he's an emperor pigeon king. I have just around a 60% win rate with him in ranked, so I'm relatively successful. I was able to make it as high as G1 in season 5. My goal is to be Diamond season 6. I have studied this champ and have seriously tried almost every play style on him and build path you can think of. What I've learned by doing this is that Azir is extremely versatile and has many play styles. he's tough to learn but once you do his payoff is extremely rewarding. This guide is still a work in progress and there is much work to be done. I will be adding videos, pictures, more information on items abilities, you name it. I wanted the public to see a rough draft so I can add to my guide where questions are being asked. If you have a question about Azir, I can probably answer it. Don't be afraid to criticize this article as well, I'm also here to learn. The Azir community is here to welcome you (:



Hmmmm, other interesting things...I used to wrestle for Virginia Tech at 197 until I broke my back a few times, now I write my Azir guide in my free time since retirement. This does not make me a NARP but I am a nerd. 

If you friend me I will absolutely talk Azir tactics with you...

more coming soon
