Disrespect them hoes with Azir
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
+ Great Zone Control / Harass
+ Good soft CC
+ Decent engage/disengage
+ Very useful Ult
+ Beast mid/late game
+ Self created tower useful.
- Squish champion
- Vulnerable to ganks if disengage/ult used or mistimed
- Skillshot based, tricky at times
- Mana hungry stages 1-8 (unless you opted for Rod of A.)
To farm with him, try to last hit as best as you can and spawn your W to prevent the enemy for getting close to you. Feel free to take advantage of your soldier to farm. Lasts hit are more effective that way.
W FIRST Arise is everything, it's your bread and butter for the operation. No soldiers = no damage = no kills secured or even lane control.
You need that on low cooldown and you want them to do the most damage possible when they show up.
Q SECOND , is important because that's often going to be your mdoe of harass and damage when goin in deep or zoning. You need your Q to be able to come up as often as you need it to have total dominance all around you.
E THIRD Since this is your engage/disengage, it is only as useful as you need to resort to it, it's great because it gives a shield and stuns upon champion collision, but the chances of you spamming this skill are low, add to that it's already decently long cooldown. So max this third.
YOU DO NOT NEED CDR RUNES FOR AZIR.
WHY ? Because nashors+ ionion give you 40% which is the maximum. So you can now focus your runes on more effective stats. Such as AP for more power, easier cs early game
Standard defensive runes..can't go wrong with that. Magic pen to do some work in the field. You can swap with hybrid penetration since he is AP/AD when he auto attacks and uses soldiers. So either one is a good choice.
Try not to be in the for front, or you'll get crushed and be worthless. Let your tank engage or whoever feels like engaging on the enemy team, and most people don't notice when the azir soldier pops up smack in the middle of the team fight...while you're graciously on the side, sending out more soldiers and Q spearing the enemies... sorta like an adc takes his distance as well...your job is the same thing.
ULT when their entire team just gang bangs you, so that you can push em away from whoever they are ready to kill. It gives a movement boost so if they are chasing you and you happen to be able to pass through it...do that. Also use it to push enemies under your tower for that tower damage. Ult for creating distance...don't mess up your teams crucial skill shots and combo's by messing them up. Best to use this as a finisher move to do damage to all of them at once and possibly pick up a triple..double...quadra ? penta ? who knows
AZIR IS THE **** =) Tricky to play, but with practice he's awesome. I hope this guide helped you guys out. This should be a very solid guide for anyone new wanting to pick up Azir.
Have fun, and leave a nice comment or a thumbs up for the guide. Have a great day everyone =)
