Threats & Synergies
Pre 6 try to keep your distance and poke him with the same soldier you farm. Dont waste Q. If he tries to come for his combo either click your way around it or use W>E or W>E>Q away. After 6 dont fight him. just farm. Get oblivion orb
Push hard with soldiers. Try to stay away from your minions and on an angle that her Q wont hit you on the way back if she tries to farm. If she walks up to you try to dodge her charm with E only if necessary. Track her CDs. If she uses Q on minions Walk up to her and try to dodge her E. If she mishes you have some Free Poke. After 6 be carefull for her All ins. If you get hit by her e youre most likely dead so dont use sums. Try to be in range of your tower so in case she all ins you shuffle her to tower.
Pre 6 you have a free"ish" lane. Put Soldier infront of the minion she wants to cs and poke her with your HoB. If she is low enough around 350-400 hp you can E>Q into her face and ignite her. She is probably dead. After 6 begin playing safer. She can all in you preety easily, but you can still kill her. Play close to your tower but not under. Bait her first part of her ult. When she will try to use the second part push her under tower and follow her so she cant E out of it.
Farmfest. Pre 6 shove hard and try to help jungle or sidelanes. Dodge her Q and be carefull after 6 for her cheese max range wall. Run tele. dont waste mana trying to kill her as she has an Egg. Ask for ganks as she has only flash to escape, so if you get her to use it she is a free kill
If you are reading this and he is not then you will win. Wait for him to use his Q. If he uses that you can get into his face poke fast and then go away so he cant use a second solder on top of him. After 6 respect his shuffle.
As long as you avoid her Q you win lane. BE CAREFULL if she uses W you cant e away so play around her cooldowns. After 6 try to bait her ult by stuttering your clicks back and forth. If you hear closely enough you know when shes about to r and you can look away. Respect her damage as she can chase you into tower and kill you if you are greedy
One of the hardest matchups in my opinion. She can always get into your face and poke you so always keep one soldier and your E up . If she hits her Q, prepare for her E follow. Scenario 1. If it is pre-6 put soldier on top of you and try to deny her E damage by pressing E yourself. If it is after 6 try to do this. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/852648111 in teamfights get a feel of what she might do. If she goes for you push her away, If she goes for your team melt everyone else.
Push and Poke with W early levels. Try to get a kill Pre 6. After 6 it becomes a boring lane you can tkill and he will prob roam a lot so try to ping your teamates. In teamfights stay away from him as he can 1 shot you.
Pre-6 feels like an easy lane. Keep your distance and poke him while farming. Respect his all ins though as if he uses WQE on you you are left with 30% hp. One more of that and youre gone. After 6 you cant really match him. If he has a brain he will hold E for your Wall so try to bait it out. In taemfights he can one shot you so be careful
Very few games vs him. No info sorry
Respect her lvl 2 Cheese. Try to farm and poke from a distance. After 6 play under your tower and if she wants to fight you she will have to do it under the tower. Exhaust is a good option. Dont waste your R if she has a mark on you as she can q over it
Pre 6 you kill him, after 6 he kills you. Stay close to tower and if he ults you push him in and try to all in.
Stay away from her Passive. try to perma poke. If she ults you, ult her straight away. Exhaust is a good option
I like to run electrocute and go night harvester vs her if the enemy team comp isnt tanky enough. If she Qs you put a soldier in front of her and use E as she tries to W you. Sometimes if the enemy is really bursty i like going bone plating on secondary runes. IF you do this build you will need blue buff.
No games vs her. Sorry
Respect his Q range and hitbox. Its a tough lane but it gets better the later the game goes. Late game you are more usefull than he is so use it to your advantage. Ask for ganks or try to roam.
As long as you can press right click and move your mouse properly you are good. If not practice.
He is way easier than you might think. His spells have the shortest range of all so if he wants to Q you, just walk back and use soldiers to poke. If he is ap, react and flash his R and kill him. If not its ok to get hit by it and then try to all in his team.
Pre 6 keep his shield on cooldown and ask for ganks while keeping the wave on a neutral state. After 6 do the same but respecting his Ult cause its a killer. Exhaust might help
Same principle with ahri. Stay away from your minions so she cant use her root efficiently. If you get rooter immidietly place a soldier max range on her so if she tries to throw her spell you poke her too. if she uses her blooming press E away. If she uses her R throw her to your tower.
Very few games against her. try to poke a lot. and push a lot
Dodge. If the enemy seraphine is good you cant lane vs her. Disgusting wave clear that neutralize you. If her team is even going into mid-late game her ult wins every fight.
Try to poke but respect him at the same time. Stay away from his E-W thing as he can heal a lot of the hp you poke from him. After 6 dont play close to his tower as he can shuffle you in as well.
Borefest. Try to farm better than him and poke every now and then. Keep your distance
Ask for ganks. If he uses his spells start poking him. push the wave as much as you can but stay away from your minions. If he hits you then he loses cs to the tower.
Tough lane. They can always stay away from your soldiers if they have a brain so try to respect that. Yasuo Can wind wall your Ult and stop it completely so be carefull about it. Exhaust might be a good idea if you arent comfortable vs him. Push early levels as much as possible and put some deep wards.
Hard to deal with. get advantage early. Once he gets attack speed he becomes harder to deal with. Once he gets lifesteal too he becomes impossible to deal with
Push the wave early levels. If he uses W go agressive once his shadow disappears. Try to dodge is WQE poke. after 6 play under your tower, and try to time your ult with his ult. If you ult just at the right moment you hit him when he comes out of you.
Same principle with lux only a bit harder. If you get hit by sleep youre most likely dead.
Her attack speed buff can make you a machine gun.
Pogger Ult combo
Champion Build Guide
Im MrSuits, an Azir OTP and today im gonna share my experiences with all of you so i hope i can help you become a better Azir player. But remember. No matter how much you read here, the final result will be based on how you perform on the rift. So make sure you grind the hell out of Azir cause thats the only way you'll ever learn how to play him
IMPORTANT NOTICE. This is not a begginers guide so i will use some examples and after that you will have to figure out what i mean by that so keep that in mind.
- Huge damage potential
- Easy to get a hang of
- Can literally carry 1v9 if played correctly
- Even if behind can set up a winning teamfight with a good shuffle
- Can be really useless if you have no idea what to do
- Extremely hard to master
- Hard to know waht the best call in each situation is
- In lower elos you might get flamed if you pick him for the first time
Other runes are preferance of what you.. prefer
These are the only builds i like running now. Do them on the way shown with the change of liandrys or ludens depending the enemies. You can rush armguard or even zhonyas if you feel threatened.
If youre vs a mage on mid and seems really hard to lane its very good to run Verdant Barrier.
So there are a very few simple tricks you can do with Azir but its hard to understand when and how to use them.
During laning phase W>Q is your best friend for poking an enemy you can poke to get him to lethal.
Once you get him to lethal(about 300-370 hp, your next combo is W>E>Q>ignite if necessare, for first blood as shown in the video.
For teamfights you have to master W>E>Q. This can be used for either Escaping, Chasing a fleeing opponent, or doing the ultimate W>E>Q>R combo the the flashy Highlight play.
The ledendary W>E>Q>FLASH>R combo is for advanced users. Theres a video for it. Ill upload more in future.
Use your passive to either defend a raging herald, or if you know you will get dove, or when you know that a fight is about to happen nearby and try to lure the enemies there.
For all of these combos ill upload videos of highlights and not from practice tool as it is a better show vs living targets instead of static ones.
Of course he can be usefull in all shorts of other situations if you know how to utilize him well enough but overall you dont really want to pick Azir into an enemy composition that can all in you such as Kha'Zix Diana Rengar Malphite Hecarim and other stuff like that as if you fail your escape you will be dead.
You can achieve that with the following sequence:
Level 1, when the wave stacks place one of your Arise! soldiers as close as to the enemy casters as possible and begin pushing. If the enemy tries to push back, place one Arise! as close to him as you can so it guarantees you get at least 2 hits out of Hail of Blades proc.
Level 2, get prio by pushing the Melles with two Arise! soldiers. Once you get Level 2, put a point into Conquering Sands , walk up and Q the enemy and immediately start auto hitting him so you can proc at least two hits out of Hail of Blades . Continue to push the wave fast
Next wave, should be in mid. Try to poke the enemy with Arise! and proc Hail of Blades with out using Conquering Sands. If you get two procs he has to be lethal by now. Get level 3 by killing the 3 Melles and put a point into Shifting Sands. Now you can kill him. Place one Arise! soldier on the wave and position yourself so you are in a straight line against the opponent. When the enemy is in a straight line press, E Shifting Sands > Q Conquering Sands > Ignite and start auto attacking, If he Flash away Flash too if necessary and put a soldier on top of him to secure first blood
Heres a quick example. Lets just pretend that the Tryndamere isnt here and that this was the First blood ok guys?
i know TF trolled this one but i just wanted to show you how to all in em.
Place 2 Arise! soldiers between the casters and the melles. Take the casters out, and then use simple auto attacks, or 1 Arise! soldier if you need to keep your distance.
You will rarely want to use Conquering Sands to farm as it uses a lot of Mana.
If you can, try to roam inthese lanes as much as possible. Help jungle secure Crabs and help bot or top take a kill
Appart from that always buy a Stealth Ward or two whenever you base. Place one of them near drake or herald, depending which objective is the next to be contested, and keep one on you just in case. There is a trick that if you see an enemy trying to take your Stealth Ward , if you place your other Stealth Ward at the lane bush so you deny him some Gold . Its not much but it might give him a small kick of tilt lol
First option is to stay back and use your Arise! solders to do the dirty work and the other is to Emperor's Divide shuffle the enemy carries so they are either one shotted or low enough to be killed by your teamates.
The first option is the option you will have to learn well in order to be viable with Azir. It is so much better for you to be alive for the teamfight, instead of trying a shuffle that might fail or get you killed.
There is literally no explanation on how to fight. Every situation is diffrent. Diffrent comps diffrent skill lever diffrent lots of stuff. Your number one priority is to stay alive. This means using your teamates as Baits. This means flashing the engage of Amumu or Malphite. This means using your Emperor's Divide early so you save yourself from the 0/20 Yasuo that hit his powerspike and then start attacking everyone.
The other option is as we said to use your Emperor's Divide as an initiation tool if your team is lacking an engage Champion. In order to do that it is recomended that you have Flash up and Zhonya's Hourglass in case something goes wrong and you have to save your self. If you do that correctly and have one of the builds i mentioned, except the riftmaker one, the enemy carries should be dead by the time your Zhonya's Hourglass st***is goes off. If not good luck.
Remember. The priority is to stay alive so if there is a 20% chacne you will die if you do that then dont do it. Instead use your teamates as baits if the circumstances allow it.
Thank you. You can always come and say hi on my stream and see me how i play azir.
If theres something you dont like, let me know in the comments so i can work on that.
