Hi there! I've been playing Ashe Support pretty recreationally, ever since I started playing League 12 years ago! Every once in a while, I play her in about Platinum elo and have an absolute blast. This guide is just a very general guideline of how to play Ashe Support, with runes and itemization. If you'd like to ask more questions, drop a comment or drop by my stream! I stream almost every weekday and would love to have you there, Thank you for reading!

Why Ashe Support?
- She has some very good one sided match-ups vs certain enchanters and adcs, and if you can pick later into the draft, and pick Ashe into Tiny or Minor threats, then you're gonna have a very easy lane.
- She isn't really playable into anyone that can engage or jump on you or assassins, so shes very situational.
- You definitely make your opponents get really angry at you with how obnoxious Volley spam is, and if you like messing with your opponents, then Support Ashe is your style.
TLDR; Don't rush your mythic. Buy ability haste items.

There are 3 main mythics to buy, Shurelya's Battlesong or Liandry's Anguish or Crown of the Shattered Queen. Become an Enchanted Crystal Arrow Bot. Buy the Amplifying Tome items last, since your only AP ratio is your Ultimate. (and Liandry's Anguish)

If you have Hail of Blades, buy Umbral Glaive first. For your mythic, if you're under no threat Liandry's Anguish for haste/damage or Shurelya's Battlesong for more Enchanted Crystal Arrow uptime. If you are under threat, Crown of the Shattered Queen will do wonders (if your enemies can't pop the safeguard off you easily).

If you have Arcane Comet, buy Imperial Mandate or Liandry's Anguish, since it's likely it's too dangerous to auto-attack people, so just spam your abilities.


Reasons to get Liandry's Anguish
- More ability haste for more ability spam.
- There's a lot more tanky champions or champions who like building a lot of health on the enemy team.
- There's stealth champions on the enemy team, since the DoT you put on a stealth champion will show where they generally are, instead of not being able to see them at all, such as Shaco Akali Twitch

Reasons to get Shurelya's Battlesong
- Cheap ability haste and more engage opportunities.
- Do not rush this item. Buy it second or third.

Reasons to get Crown of the Shattered Queen
- There's a lot of high mobility/stealthed threats on the enemy team.
- Surviving feels impossible.
- Do not rush this item. Buy it second or third.
- Likely, if the enemies are extremely dangerous to play against (usually assassins), then Ashe was a bad pick in the draft.

Boots/Shoes Choice
- Ionian Boots of Lucidity rush these. They're cheap, they give all the stats you want. If anyone manages to get on top of you, there is almost no other shoes/boots choice that would save you anyways, AND the other options cost more.


Umbral Glaive
- Very cheap, disabling vision is great, gives Ability Haste too, and you can stack more Lethality if enemy is all squishy.
- Consider taking this with Zombie Ward for that extra vision.
- Because of how much scouting potential you have with Hawkshot and being able to check Brush with Volley, might not be a bad choice to turn your Oracle Lens into Farsight Alteration
- Much better to snowball with, since you'll have more opportunities to walk around the map, disabling vision.

Imperial Mandate
- Overall a safe choice to buy first, nice damage spike (for your team), ability haste, and mana regen to keep spamming.

Serpent's Fang
- Pretty easy to apply the effects of this since Volley will be about a 2.5 second cooldown, and it covers a large area.
- Definitely a must get vs Sona Karma Ivern and anyone else that can provide shields constantly.

Chempunk Chainsword
- Finishes off from Executioner's Calling and it just gives a ton of ability haste

Black Cleaver
- If your team is all AD, shaving off some armor off the enemy is nice
- Gives a whooping 30 ability haste
- Gives a bit of extra movement speed to help reposition

Cosmic Drive
- Similar line of reasoning as Black Cleaver, but Cosmic Drive gives more movement speed overall.

Horizon Focus
- If your opponents are constantly hiding around walls/in bushes waiting to ambush you, then this will help tremendously, especially if they are constantly disabling your vision.
- It's expensive and gives a medium amount of ability haste, so it's a late-game item only.

Ravenous Hydra
- Only as your 6th item and only to wave clear minions.

Vigilant Wardstone
- This should be your last item or second last item.
- The ability haste for very cheap is what you're looking for here.
- if you purchase Watchful Wardstone and at some point in the game, you have enough vision scouting/denial with Umbral Glaive Hawkshot and Farsight Alteration that you could even look to sell Black Mist Scythe for another Legendary item, since it's likely you won't need any of the stats it provides anymore.
How to use your abilities
TLDR; Spam Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow as often as possible.

Passive - Frost Shot
- This is what makes you exceptionally annoying and hard for enchanters to deal with, because they lack damage, you just end up slowing them for your lane partner to kill them.

Q - Ranger's Focus
- If you put a single point into this at level 3, I hope you took Hail of Blades. This probably doesn't work as well with Arcane Comet.
- If you take Arcane Comet most likely don't level this until you need to.

W - Volley
- At level 9, this becomes exceptionally spammable, after you get a bit of ability haste.
- Against champions that stealth very often, you can fire your Volley into directions you think they might come from, such as Evelynn Twitch Shaco Akshan
- Always use this to check brush, as its a very low cooldown.

E - Hawkshot
- If you find someone, and that someone dies within a few seconds, you get an assist, which works nicely with stacking Ultimate Hunter
- In the early game, at level 2, look to fire this at one of the buffs, red or blue, so see which side the enemy jungler is on. Afterwards, next key points will be about 6:40 - 7:10 (red or blue buff will spawn next).
- This ends up making you pretty hard to get caught out because you're constantly spotting the threats, and allows you to walk forward if you have Umbral Glaive to clear out vision.

R - Enchanted Crystal Arrow
- Look to aim this down narrow corridors to ensure a higher chance of hitting
- If you're shooting at a lane, then you'll have to calculate the time it will take the travel to the location, and you can usually aim at the target's maximum auto-attack range to the next minion you think they'll be hitting.
- Once you get some ability haste and stacks on Ultimate Hunter, you can fire this almost every 40 seconds.
- If you keep track of Flash on enemies, aim for those who don't have it, or people who don't have a dash or Galeforce.
TLDR; Hail of Blades if you win the 2v2. Otherwise Arcane Comet.

Arcane Comet
- If walking up to auto-attack is too dangerous, then this is your go-to.

Hail of Blades
- If they can't trade back very easily, then you can get Ranger's Focus at level 2 and look to all-in.
- Allows for more runes in the Domination tree which are pretty good for Ashe.

Minor Runes


Manaflow Band
- Helps with spamming volley later in the game.
- Consider waiting on the cooldown of Manaflow Band to be up, before using Volley so you can stack it as fast as possible.

- Can't go wrong with this, more ability haste is just good

Absolute Focus
- More potent poke, would consider it more against a full squishy team, because then the value of the AD you get is higher.
- However, do know that if you complete Imperial Mandate or Liandry's Anguish first, the adaptive force this gives, will go to AP unless you have more than 40 AD. Black Mist Scythe gives 20, so you'll need at least another 2 long swords.

- Adds more to the potent poke.
- Nothing else to really take in this row.


Cheap Shot
- You can almost always proc this so it just adds more damage.

Zombie Ward
- Take this with Umbral Glaive and you're gonna be playing minesweeper.

Ultimate Hunter
- More Enchanted Crystal Arrow spam, likely to pair with Imperial Mandate


Approach Velocity
- Would take this with Hail of Blades for that all-in potential to run people down.

Biscuit Delivery
- Will allow you to Volley a few more times in the laning phase
- Take this or the rune below with Approach Velocity

Perfect Timing
- The main reason you're in the Inspiration section is for Approach Velocity
- Its unlikely you're turn this into Guardian Angel or Zhonya's Hourglass later, so just sell it once you use it.

Magical Footwear
- Take this if you have a winning lane. So it's more likely you can get to Ionian Boots of Lucidity sooner if you get some kills/assists in lane.

- If there's a rune not mentioned here, then I thought it just wasn't worth it. But if you'd like me to add it, drop a comment and I'll gladly add it in.
Early/Mid/Late game
TLDR; Spam abilities and don't die. Maybe XD at enemies a few times.

Early Game/Laning Phase

- If you have a good lane match-up (check for low threats), this is where you should look to capitalize on your advantages. Your poke hits hard, and its got a lot of range. And if they decide to over-step even a little bit, you actually have kill pressure since you can just keep auto-attacking and slowing them. This is the time to take Ignite and maybe even Cheap Shot, and its even possible to all-in with Hail of Blades at level 2.
- If you have a bad lane match-up (check for high threats), this is where you have to play REALLY defensively and try not to die. Take Arcane Comet, keep things warded, get as much exp as you can to get level 6, then level 9 as soon as possible so that you can become useful.

Mid Game

- If you come out ahead from laning phase, there are a few options that you have. If you rushed Umbral Glaive you can definitely start going on the hunt for wards for additional gold income, but be very careful and try to scout ahead with Hawkshot and Volley. At this point, it's unlikely you're level 9, so still proceed with caution when walking towards bushes.
- Once you get used to being able to analyze fights very quickly, and get a general idea of which direction the fight is going in, you can look for across-the-map Enchanted Crystal Arrow plays.
- Use a lot of pings like, the ON THE WAY ping or AREA IS WARDED ping, at the exact spot your arrow is going, then ping your arrow cooldown, to communicate that's where it's going. Whoever is supposed to follow up on the arrow, may be able to manipulate their opponent to walk into the spot you fired at.

Late Game

- I find late game is right when you hit level 9. Your Volley is spamable, and your scouting ability just gets better and better as you level up and put more points into Hawkshot. You become absolutely obnoxious with how often your Enchanted Crystal Arrow is up, and trying to run at Ashe is an absolute nightmare since Volley is up every 2 seconds.
- At this point, you have to play according to the items you've built. With Umbral Glaive, you'll end up trying to clear vision a lot more. With Liandry's Anguish you're trying to wittle down your opponents over an extended period of time.
13.23 Tier List
Grading Explanation below the lists! Check the RANK too!

- Ashe support is still ok and if you look at the "Threats" category, if both enemies are 1 and/or 2, then thats exactly what you want. Anything at 3/4/5, will be harder to play the game. Ashe's Tier placement is higher in her good match-ups, and even lower in her bad match-ups. Her synergies don't matter too much.

13.23 Emerald and Below

13.23 Diamond+

Tier List Grading Points

- Winrates
- Champion Difficulty (more relevant in Emerald and below)
- Counter-play (more relevant in Emerald and below)
- Flex pick for draft (more relevant in diamond+)
- Early game (more relevant in diamond+)
- Late game/scaling (more relevant in Emerald and below)
- Anything in the (_Letter_+) row, means it's better the higher in elo you go. Anything in (_Letter_-) row, means it's better the lower in elo you go.

Overall Points:

- Games last longer the lower in elo you go. Therefore, mage supports tend to do much better since you can buy your items, and you basically become another carry threat. This leads to enchanters/engage being weaker in lower level play since you would rely on your teammtes more often.

- Champions that are fundamentally easier to execute on will have higher win rates. Since it is more unlikely players are pilot-ing their champion runes/builds/kit efficiently, the easier the champion, the more likely to maximize their kits. This is especially apparent in Platinum and below.

- I would recommend playing any of the champs in S+, S, or A. However you can climb on almost anything, provided you always look to maximize your champion kit, mechanics, and impact on the game. Winning is the result of improving.
