why azir top?
the solution to this is to put him against the top lane against opponets that can not really defend themselves and free farm as much as you can while saving your e dash for a quick escape.
much how like thresh is under estimated in the top lane and they try and turret dive you early the same will happen here. azir is vulnerable pre lvl 3 so farming safe until is needed. after which the jng can come and gank top many times and your w e combo will keep you safe for the most part.
buying roa first items gives you some tankiness and mana sustain. nashors will make you lane pressure pretty intense aswell.
ganks are not so strong pre 6 but you can not only get behind their team and push them into the turret but peel enemies away from your bot lane if need be.
you play lane safe with your e always ready and do not expose yourself with out it unless you are sure .
items mainly vary with the lane if you really need to you could rush roa and warmogs even and it in lane for decades with no real worries. rylias if you want for extra peel. laindries . Morello. defencive items if you need like zhonias. even zzrot if you want extreme lane pressure.
azir can demolish his lane opponent and after shred towers and press lanes like no other. you can use your passive to fortify yourself top lane when they collapse on you or place it and tp bot side to have a fast double lane push before an objective fight in the river or mid.
you have a lot of control and mobility and much like jax or tryn you can jump to escape but you don't require wards and can even go over multiple walls or seal off access with your ult.
I feel as if with time this could become something quite powerful in the right hands. adding another welcomed addition to top lanes ap lineup and give you someone to fight the dreaded teemmo the destroyer.
