Not Updated For Current Season
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.
Pros / Cons
First we will work out pros and cons for Ahri.
Great for escaping (Spirit Rush Charm)
Usually no problems with mana early game
If not fed will still be useful thanks to Charm
Nukes hard late game
great for farming with Orb of Deception
Squishy, but our Rylai's , WOTA, And Essence Theft should take care of our health woes
Not incredibly strong early game
Requires practice with skillshots
Easily countered by Veigar (Yes, even early game)
Overall Ahri is a great champ.(tell me if i should add anything to this list)
I get AP runes for early and late game so that I can have extra AP for early and late game.
I get 3 MP/5 runes so that i can stay in lane longer, and Magic penetration marks so that i can get through magic resist easily. Really just cookie cutter AP runes.
For my masteries I get 21/0/9 so i can get as much damadge output as possible with mana and movement speed to help with staying in lane, this in combination with Essence Theft and WOTA will keep Ahri in lane for as long as possible.
First I buy
so i can easily last hit, harass, and stay in lane for a while. On my first time going back I usually pick up my
Blasting Wand and as many
Amplifying Tomes as i can so i can get extra AP as early as i can. The next time i go back i get my
WOTA, and I finish my
Sorc shoes. When i come back again I buy either
Blasting Wand or
Needlessly Large Rod. Lastly I get my
Deathcap. Over time I get
Void Staff, and lastly my
Morello's Evil Tome
Other easily Viable items would be
MERCURY'S TREADS This is reserved for if your enemy team is LOADED with cc, or if they have almost all AP.
LICH BANE This item works okay with ahri, and you can hit off an autoattack easily after hitting your skillshots, easily after using Fox fire, and easily after ulting.
ROD OF AGES this item is for when you are getting focused and running out of mana a lot. A tip to prevent from having to buy this item is to stay at as long a distance away as possible from enemies while still hitting them.
Tell me if you think there are any other good items and i will try them out.
There are a lot of combos that work for ahri but i find E->Q->R (until you are near the enemy and leave as meny left over as you can)->W->R as much as you can.
-when your passive, Essence Theft is active make sure to use Fox-fire as it is ahri's only single-target spell.
-Use Charm to lure enemy champs away from tower range so that your team can take them out.
-Protip, dodge if you see a veigar unless you are in ranked and are an ELO-maniac
