Azir Counters

Learn 's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Azir guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Azir Mid in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Azir. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Disc of the Sun: Azir places a marker above the ruins of destroyed turrets (both allied and enemy). Once within 400 units of the ruins, Azir can click on the marker to conjure a Sun Disc, which functions like a standard turret but grants Azir any gold it earns. A Sun Disc's health decays over 1 minute and will lose its armor if Azir dies or moves too far away. Azir cannot conjure Sun Discs within the enemy base.

Azir orders all Sand Soldiers to rush toward the target location, dealing 70 / 90 / 110 / 130 / 150 (+30% of ability power) magic damage and slowing all enemies they pass through by 25% for 1 second. The slow stacks additively.

Passive: Azir periodically stocks a Sand Soldier, up to a maximum of 2. He also gains 15 / 25 / 35 / 45 / 55% bonus attack speed, doubled for 5 seconds if he summons a third concurrent soldier.

Active: Azir summons an untargetable Sand Soldier for 9 seconds. When Azir attacks an enemy in a soldier's range, the soldier attacks instead of Azir, dealing 50 / 52 / 54 / 56 / 58 / 60 / 62 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 / 130 / 140 / 150 (based on level) (+60% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies in a line. If multiple soldiers strike the same target, each soldier after the first deals 25% damage, and the soldiers can't attack structures or wards.

Azir can store up to 2 Sand Soldiers at a time (recharge time: 8 / 7.5 / 7 / 6.5 / 6 seconds), but there is no hard limit on the number of Sand Soldiers that can be active on the field at once. Sand Soldiers expire twice as fast while within range of an enemy turret, and will expire instantly if Azir moves too far away.

Azir gains an additional 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% attack speed for 5 seconds whenever he summons a soldier while he already has two on the field. Stabs deal 25 / 50 / 75 / 100% damage to secondary targets (at levels 1/6/11/16).
E

Azir dashes to one of his Sand Soldiers, dealing 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+40% of ability power) magic damage to enemies he passes through and shielding himself for 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+70% of ability power) (+ 15% bonus health) for 1.5 seconds. If Azir hits an enemy champion, he will stop and immediately gain a charge of Arise!
R

120 / 105 / 90 / 90 / 90
Azir calls forth a phalanx of 6 / 7 / 8 shield-wielding soldiers who press forward, knocking enemies back and dealing 175 / 325 / 475 (+60% of ability power) magic damage to them.

When the soldiers finish their charge, they stand as a wall for 5 seconds, blocking enemy champion movement. Allies can pass through the wall. These soldiers cannot be ordered to move or attack.
