Threats to Ahri with this build
When playing Ahri you can easily turn a game around. Your team can be losing and extremely behind one minute to winning a single team fight and pushing to win the entire match. It's remarkable how this can change the match. Two ways you can do this are:
In order to make this happen you must simply get a pick or two with her combo. Pick someone squishy and wait untill they are caught off away from there team and nuke them then. Or
During a 5v5 lineup in lane or waiting for them in a bush, E one to your team and instantly turn the fight into a 4v5. These ways are obviously no secret, but just a reminder/tip that can help tremendously and have won me multiple games alone.
Ahri had some pretty big changes to her after the latest patch, her Q W and E were all changed. It's very important to note these changes
Q - Ahri's Q has been changed as to where when she hits anything with it she gains mass movement speed. With this update it is extremely easy to escape from people or ganks. You can quickly E someone for the stun, then Q and run away quickly.
W - Ahri's W is not as important of an update as her Q or E but it is still worth mentioning. When using her W it does more damage than it used to and it also has better targeting now. Especially for minions, if you kill a minion with your first of three spells the other two will focus another minion.
E - With Ahri's new E it deals a lot more damage than it used to but it no longer gives your Q a 20% damage buffer. This means your E/Q combo isn't as reliant but it is still definitely needed to burst out some damage.

I first started playing Ahri, pretty early on in my league career. She has been an exceptional mid, even though she has been nerfed a tad in the past. I picked her up very quickly, as she is not extremely difficult to play as long as you can land your skill shots and maneuver well. With her passive it gives some lane sustain, just don't abuse her Q too much or you may find yourself out of mana. I would strongly recommend her for many players that are looking for a strong mid champ, whether it is to carry yourself out of a league or for any other reason you may have. I have created this guide to hopefully help players that are either looking for a new mid champ see how wonderful she is, or to help other players that need an amazing build for her with interchangeable items. Thank you for viewing my guide!
As Ahri you have TONS of mobility. You might have a tough matchup mid and need some more gold, or want to help your team out so you can get ahead early game. If possible it's always beneficial to gank other lanes. You will be able to travel to the lanes and back quickly, as well as possibly pickup a few kills or assists putting your team ahead. Once you hit level 6 is when you want to start looking for lanes you can roam to and gank. Your ulti will allow you to use assassin potential, hitting hard and then use your E-Q-W combo for damage and from the assistance of your teammates you should be able to secure the kill fairly easy.
