Introduction


Hi Mobafire! This is how I play Ahri. I am not a pro, but I love playing League of Legends and especially solo-mid casters such as Ahri. I built this guide for myself as a reminder, but I think it's time to show the world. Also, this is not a definitive guide on Ahri, but merely the way I play her. Please leave opinions and constructive criticism! This build is mainly used for Mid-lane Ahri, but with a few tweaks, can be used for bottom lane. Also, strong last-hit capabilities and skill-shots are a must!

DON'T JUST BLINDLY FOLLOW BUILDS. THE CHEAT SHEET AT THE TOP IS FOR A CURSORY GLANCE AT SOME ITEM SUGGESTIONS, NOT WHAT YOU SHOULD DO EVERY TIME. PLEASE DON'T ACT UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT THIS IS WHAT I ALWAYS DO. I BUILD DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.

Thanks jhoijhoi for the template: Click here for his amazing tutorial.

The per level runes are always good in my opinion because it will start being better than the champions with flat runes.

This is just a standard AP/Aggressive build that's suitable for nearly every caster. Just a few variations and why I prefer that way over another.


Summoner's Wrath over 4th Mental Force : Whenever Ignite is on cooldown, which should be quite often, you'll receive an extra 5 AD and AP, which is much better over the constant 1 AP of the 4th Mental Force

Improved Recall over Summoner's Insight : Just a personal preference. I don't think that the 15 seconds cooldown will help very much, especially since you already have a low cooldown triple-flash ( Spirit Rush) and you'll be going back for items quite often. Plus, if you're getting surrounded and you have that extra second quicker recall, you can escape quite well.

Summoner Spells

I play with Flash and Ignite for Flash's versatility in closing space, running away, and dodging champions in the jungle. I choose Ignite over other spells because of the true damage potential.


Flash: Absolutely necessary for any champion. Equivalent to an extra Spirit Rush, this skill will be able to help you escape from ganks better than any other skill. Being an AP mage and generally squishy, you want the added mobility.
space

Teleport: I like Teleport so I can quickly support for ganks and team fights. Also, after a visit to heal, you can quickly get back into your own lane. I recommend this if you are a newer player and can't get that last hit out with ignite, securing a kill. If you choose to get this, get Summoner's Insight and the 4th Mental Force .
space

Ignite: Ignite is my go-to spell for more aggressive play, just for that extra bit of damage. The true damage is really nice and it reduces the effect of healing by 50%. Also, the added 5 AD and AP is nice when Ignite is on cooldown.

I take Orb of Deception first so I can get some harass and good damage. At level 2, I get Charm so I have a way to get out if it gets bad in a skirmish. I get another level in Orb of Deception at level 3 so I can do even more splash damage for good harass and last hitting mass amounts of minions. Remember to level up your ultimate, Spirit Rush at levels 6, 11, and 16.

I like to max out my Orb of Deception first so when I get my Needlessly Large Rod or Sorcerer's Boots, I can 1-hit the ranged minions and do good damage to squishy laners. With the passive, you can lane for a lot longer than you'd expect, simply because of the damage output and the heavy healing from the 30% spell vamp. Maxing out Orb of Deception, then Fox-Fire, and finally Charm helps you get the most damage in the early laning phases. If you get ganked heavily in your lane, upgrade your Charm to level 2 or 3 as soon as possible so you can run away easier while your Spirit Rush is on cooldown
