Skill Sequence

One of the best passives in game. This ability gives you the highest spell vamp passive in game, although not completely sustained. Upon reaching nine stacks, your next ability will heal you for a massive amount!

Your bread and butter spell. Similar to Sivir's boomerang, this ability can hit any target multiple times. I max this first, allowing you to deal massive damage to either a single target, or an entire team. It is also the easiest way to proc your passive, as well as the most beneficial way to heal. Upon reaching 9 stacks of your passive, simply throw this spell into a group of minions and watch your health rise!

Important note: This ability will give you upto three stacks of your passive, depending on how many enemies were hit. Whenever possible, try and hit as many targets as you can.

The second ability you max. This spell is great to use while standing in a group of enemies, while chasing, or while running away. Since it does not require you to select a target, it will hit the closest enemy(enemies) to you. If there is only one target, it will hit multiple times for less damage. This ability can be spammed to proc your passive.

Who knew mages could have a taunt? This skill shot ability will not only nuke a target, but will force them to walk towards you. Picked up at level three, you can use this ability to target out single enemies, or even taunt a champion into the range of a turret.

One of the coolest abilities in game. This is Ahri's main burst, escape, and chase ability. This ability needs to be used wisely, and is your best source for positioning. When used for escaping, spamming this spell combined with flash can get you over multiple walls, and out of harms way in the blink of an eye.

Note: This ability hits multiple champions. If a team fight occurs, try and hit as many of the squishy targets as you can without getting too far away from your team.

Cast sequence:

--> --> --> --> ( Used as a distance closer/bring enemy towards teammates)

Open with your to get to the enemies squishy carry. Be sure to position so your can hit multiple targets at the same time. Cast again as another distance closer or to re position out of range of attacks. Pop to deal some more damage then yourself to safety behind your tank, or to chase whoever is running from your burst damage. can be used to catch the runners, or to pull enemy players in as a team fight initiator. Be wary when starting the fight however, you are not a tank and do not need to take damage.
