It's been close to a week since I've been playing our newly nerfed Ahri.
Tested out her damage output and stuffs, and okay I'll be honest..

Ahri's nerf wasnt bad big, her damage output was weaker than before but still enough to take out enemies with patience. The loss of damage is barely noticeable once you combine Spirit Rush and Fox-Fire together.

But lately, I've been reading lots of Ahri threads and polls, and even on mobafire, some of us are considering of getting our Fox.

I'm just wondering, with all that new nerfs, is Ahri is a competitive pick in tournaments ?
I've received some new comments on Ahri such as

"Ahri is still good, just not as good as she was previously."

The nerf's objective was to encourage players to go all-out on her offense. My build for pre and post nerf Ahri didn't change at all. My build is still as followed.

Rabadon's Deathcap
Sorcerer's Shoes
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Will of the Ancients
Void Staff
Morello's Evil Tome/ Zhonya's Hourglass

Previously, I maxed out Fox-Fire --> Orb of Deception --> Spirit Rush --> Charm
By the time I knew about the nerf, I went back to maxing Orb of Deception --> Fox-Fire --> Spirit Rush --> Charm, just to get my skillshots right.

I have yet to try Lich Bane that extensively. For some reason, I have some bias towards LB and I can't foresee myself auto attacking with Ahri in between each spellcast.

But, back to the topic, those with tourney knowledge, is Ahri still a top pick ?
And good Ahri players, please share your builds.

Apparently, I've read somewhere that Morello decides that Ahri's been nerfed enough, she will not be nerfed or touched upon anymore. Can someone confirm this piece news ?

By the way, here's something for you guys to squeal for :3.

Froggen played her today at Dreamhack. I also played her myself today and I couldn't really tell the difference from before.

imo she is still a top pick!
she has that good poke, good burst and superb mobility.
Even her build didnt change for me...
im still rushing abyssal in most matchups

In lane against most aps after hitting a single Q (or a full W if you lvld that up) you can kill!
Ahri has huge lanepressure because she has the damage to annihilate people from very high health early in the game.
That paired up with her ability to poke (e+q) she is very scary in lane and has the potential to easily snowball (mobility is king for ganks!!!)

Just kill her with fire, god dammit. People spend half the time complaining about "forgotten mages" and the other half saying they wanna play Ahris.

I will dedicate my time raping every single Ahri I face. Sick of her to death, 90% of them are either crushed or carried by their jungler, 10% can actually manage their mid laning. It's like tryndamere on twisted treeline, a boring repetitive disease that gets played over and over.

Guess people didn't like being toned down. Q_Q

I would not recommend Lich Bane imo because of her insane burst. Most time when you're going for kills you're using her full skill set combo, and there's just no time for her to basic attack. If you have like AP Maokai you'll have loads of time to basic attack between spells and therefore Lich Bane is a good pick.

I can imagine :D Veigar nukes so hard, and she's at the right range for Event Horizon.

Question: Who does Ahri beat without being carried? Indulge me. Most skillshooters overeach her (lux, cassiopeia is just right, xerath, brand has DAT COMBO), she loses trades with Swain unless charm hits, and her ulti demands proximity which Swain loves, Veigar nukes her out, Ryze outpowers, Fizz probably rapes as well, Leblanc eats her alive,...

Maybe she beats AP Nidalee if she doesn't get hit by her spears..
