Welcome to my guide. I created a guide for my favorite champion Ahri. I won 8 out of 10 matches in solo queue with Ahri. Now I'm platinum because of Ahri. I would like to thank Riot for creating her. When I played Ahri I think she's the best champion for me because she's really fun to play, she has a strong single target burst and mobile champion. She's my first main champion since I play League of Legends until now she's still my main champion.

Summoner Spells

Recommended Summoner Spells:

Flash - Most important summoner spell for Ahri. If you have an ult, it makes you 4 flashes.

Ignite - Very useful summoner spell. Helps your burst to kill.

Other viable Summoner Spells:

Teleport - Replacement forIgnite. If you want to gank in other lane fastly.

Barrier - Also replacement forIgnite. If your playing against strong burst champions such as Syndra, LeBlanc, Veigar, etc.

ghost - If you don't haveflash take ghost as a summoner spell.

Exhaust - Also replacement for ignite. If you are comfortable at this item, take this. But I don't take this spell as an AP mid laner.

Bad/Useless Summoner Spells:

Clairvoyance - Garbage

Clarity - Better buy MP potion or get a blue buff.

Cleanse - Buy aQSS instead.

Heal - You're notLux or Xerath.

Smite - You're not a jungler.
