Introduction

Now, most of you might be thinking, how does Ahri, an AP mid support? Well, if Zyra can do it, anyone can. Who needs ability power when you have TRUE damage. This is in no way a troll guide, it is completely legitimate and I have won a whole game with it. Bear with me.

Runes

Remember when I said all you need is the true damage? It's not that easy. Get Gold Quints for free money. Also, you need to scale, so take ability power per level Glyphs and Marks to keep up with the demands of the Fields of Justice. Also, acquire armor marks and Seals for laning against those pesky AD Carry's early game. Finally, make sure to grab Mana Regen Seals to spam Q all day long.

Masteries

For Masteries, 9, 4, 17 is the only way to go. Grab the general masteries for AP, plus extra health from Defence to make you tankier in lane. Mostly, take Utility for support and more free money.

Items

Ahri has a difficult early lane due to her low damage on her Q at the start. Once you secure first blood, then the real support Ahri starts to show itself. Get the mainstream starting items for mana regen and wards. You are going to need to spam your Q for all the true damage. The main item that you are building towards as support Ahri is Rylais. Not only does your Q hit like a ball-shaped truck, you have the slow which makes it easier to hit your charm.

Skill Sequence

The main point of support Ahri is to dish out the damage while being able to support your carry. This is why you should max your Q for optimal damage and get your E early for CC. Max your E first however, for longer charm time while balancing damage output. Your W is essentially useless for support Ahri, except for getting your passive easier which is why you take one point in it at level 7.

Spells

Pick up exhaust for extra CC and reducing damage output and take flash for an escape early and ultimate kite late game.

Summary

Ahri is the underdog of supports. She is a solid pick because people will think she is going mid and counter-pick her. When they do that, your AP Carry can counter them. Also, they will think that you are trolling and won't try as hard. She has a high damage output even with no gear, and ultimate kite with her ult and flash. Charm is also very good for CC in lane and ganks. Support Ahri may be the on;y champion that you can carry with as support. She is perfect for solo queue and is a good part of any strong team-comp.
