Threats & Synergies
Okay, first of, he's annoying with his dash, second, he's painful as heck if you keep getting hit by his Q's. He has no mana so it's best you ask help from your jungler everytime he's overextending. Fake your charm by auto attack cancelling on him multiple times until he uses wind wall. Also remove his annoying passive shield because let's face it, you can't deal max damage with that up.
Zed is.. Peculiar. You can simply counter him if you grab Zhonya's quickly and land your charms. Predict his W when he goes back to it.
Leblanc is more of a game of whoever gets burst down first. Its ironic really. Ignite her at low level to know the real leblanc.
Ughhhh this champ is a pain in the eyes playing against her. Dash dash dash at level 1. Just switch lane with your top laner or if you're lucky, call for backup with your jungler.
Ezreal is slowly becoming mid again so its best you dodge his new W and predict his E's whenever he pleases.
Akali is meh, just don't get hit with her E and Q and you'll be gucci.
Interestingly, one of the most passive matchups unless enemy team ganks first. Dodge his Q whenever it comes back, also, don't let him outscale you.
With a free Zhonya's at any level, he's annoying. Please do make him use his E BEFORE using your charm.
Pretty easy to play against. Just dodge her oh so obvious skillshots and you'll be fine.
His passive shield is what keeps himanti CC, remove it by using Q or W and auto attack him so it doesn't go back up.
Oh, just be lucky and hope his E doesn't bounce to you :3
Tank you say? nope, he's the god of staying in lane for like, 10 minutes of no backing. I recommend you to roam botlane instead if you want kills, don't forget to guard midlane though!
Do I see him in mid? No. Do I have a chance to? Yes. Can I kill him using Ahri? Yes, just dodge skillshots, sidestep and land charms baby~
Ah yes, the donger, dodge his stun and destroy his turrets with auto attacks.
Interesting to fight against, be cautious of where his Q's are and predict his movements, also predict his slows. And if he dies low health, you're lucky if you have a commencing stopwatch.
Who even plays this guy? Predict his ultimate whenever you feel like he'll initiate and just burst him down.
The noxian general, his root will enable him to pull you towards him, and if he ults, he'll deal enough DPS to kill you. Best you stay away until you can kill him on your own, or with jungler who knows.
Stuns you say? Always stay a bit far from his W, if you DO get caged, sidestep his E and Q, if he's in an open area, charm and deal revenge.
Oh boy, its tentacles, its geometry, know where his Q's will expand and sidestep his E and W.
Master hider in midlane. Play passively, respect this lil' yordle and gank other lanes for him to be baited, well, most of the time.
Ah... free jumps for days.. He roams better, bursts better, and escapes better than you. Best you stay away from him, but bully him in laning phase so he can't scale up.
Anivia is easy to counter if you can sidestep her stun. Best you take boots second or first item.
She can make you "grounded" with her abilities. Poke her down hard until she can't deal the damage. Also, if she ults, turn back at the exact moment, it takes practice, but its life saving.
Lissandra's new rework is cool and icy but you gotta respect her for giving you slows everywhere.
Serously? Janna mid meta is killing other ranked games, best you just swap with top or keep roaming bot lane.
She'll be a semi support too so its best you don't fight her often.
Oh hey, just please, for the love of god, ban her if you get the chance.
Let's say she's annoying because of her Q's poking you down to size. Just predict her movements and be cautious if she's overextending, its never a good sign for you if she overextends.
Hello, dagger police? Predict her shunpo to her daggers if you want to have a free charm and damage burst.
I smell free charms if he's red form, he helps the team out so much as Darkin form, but in early game, he's pretty meh.
Double charms. YES. She's fun to have around as a jungler as she can charm enemies too, making it easier for you to land your charm too.
Free stuns? Sure! Whenever Jax goes helicopter (lol) and stuns your enemy laner, Bully them as much as possible with AA's and a few abilites!
Also a good support to have if he knocks them up in the air, landing your charm WAY easier.
Hehehe~ free stuns...
She heals, gives you shields, and makes a tsu-nami. get it? no? aww..
Champion Build Guide
I started in League when it was preseason 5. I experienced my first few games with Yi then moved up to zed and yasuo. It was fun at first until season 6-7. I got ahri in a chest opening and made her permanent for the sake of me trying out a few mages. She was ASTOUNDINGLY fun to play, her kit is so unique it gives me total focus when playing her. Then as the hours of playing her turned to days, weeks, months, I slowly became an Ahri main, eventually playing her more in ranked. Since my main champs back then, Yasuo and Zed were autobanned, I picked ahri and gave it a try. She still carries me up the ladder to this day and its completely fun. I played around all the runes that synergize with her kit, builds, laning phases, counters, Everything I can think of, and hey, its season 9, why not give a guide to those who need a rookie-friendly one?
