The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Introduction

Hello, Summoners! Thec├╝rsed here with my very first guide. I have decided to do a guide about Ahri, as she is one of my favorite champs to play. Please rate and comment. Any and all suggestions are welcomed. I believe constructive criticism is amazing. Please do not downvote simply because the items/masteries/runes are not YOUR preference. Thank you and enjoy!

Ahri's Abilities

Ability Explanation


This section was copied from http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Ahri_the_9_Tails_Fox and I take no credit for the information provided.
  • ESSENCE THEFT: (Passive): Ahri gains a charge of Essence Theft whenever one of her spells hits an enemy. This caps at 3 charges per spell cast. Upon reaching 9 charges, Ahri's next spell will have 35% bonus spell vamp.
  • ORB OF DECEPTION (Q): (Active): Ahri sends out an orb in a line in front of her and then pulls it back, dealing magic damage on the way out and true damage on the way back.
    Cooldown: 7 seconds
    Range: 880
    Leveling Up
    Cost: 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90 mana
    Magic Damage: 40 / 65 / 90 / 115 / 140 (+0.33 per ability power)
    True Damage: 40 / 65 / 90 / 115 / 140 (+0.33 per ability power)
  • FOX-FIRE (W): (Active): Ahri releases three fox-fires to surround her for up to 5 seconds. After a short delay after cast, they will target nearby enemies, prioritizing champions, to deal magic damage to them. Additional fox-fires that hit the same target will only deal 50% damage.
    Cost: 60 mana
    Range: 800
    Leveling Up
    Cooldown: 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 seconds
    Magic Damage Per Fox-Fire: 40 / 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 (+0.38 per ability power)
    Maximum Damage to the Same Target Per Cast: 80 / 140 / 200 / 260 / 320 (+0.76 per ability power)
  • CHARM (E): (Active): Ahri will blow a kiss that travels in a line in front of her. It will deal magic damage and charm the first enemy it encounters, forcing them to walk harmlessly towards her, while being slowed by 50% for the duration.
    Cooldown: 12 seconds
    Range: 975
    Leveling Up
    Cost: 50 / 65 / 80 / 95 / 110 mana

    Charm Duration: 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds
  • SPIRIT RUSH (R): (Active): Ahri dashes towards the cursor and fires essence bolts, dealing magic damage to up to 3 nearby enemies, prioritizing champions. In the next 10 seconds, Spirit Rush can be cast two additional times before going on cooldown. Each enemy can only be hit once per dash.
    Cost: 100 mana
    Range: 450

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

I know some people prefer to have scaling Ability/Magic Penetration runes, but I find these to help to own the lane early and to zone the other champ denying them creep kills due to their turret. Even though scaling runes end up being more by the time you hit 18, you will still end up with over 450 AP, plenty of spell vamp, and magic penetration from items and masteries.

When it comes to masteries, you start getting the usual AP masteries: Mental Force , Sorcery , Arcane Knowledge , Blast , and Archmage .

"Well why didn't you continue to the end and get Executioner ?" Simply because putting a point into the last of any tree is a waste. Just because they are the last does not mean they are the best. As a player, you want to maximize what's available and those last masteries aren't helping you accomplish that.

Heading over to the utility tree and getting Expanded Mind and MEDIATION to get that extra mana and mana regen to help alleviate some of Ahri's early and late game mana problems.

Finally, getting Transmutation rounds things off with some early game spell vamp combined with your passive. "But you just told us 6% spell vamp from Greater Quintessence of Spell Vamp wasn't worth it, but 3% spell vamp instead of the extra damage from the offense tree is?" The answer is yes. Getting those Greater Quintessence of Ability Power to get that extra AP early game is more worth it than the spell vamp. All in all, you start out with 55 AP as the game starts with 3% spell vamp and the ability to get 38% within a few casts.
