I've been playing more and more ori lately. Quick question, should I max W or Q 1st? I know q's cooldown goes down to nothing, has a low mana cost, and is fairly easy to hit, but W has a gigantic aoe, scaling slow, great damage, great ratio, at the cost of having a longer cooldown and higher mana cost. I know TOYZ maxes Q, as do most ori's, but I tried it recently and I felt that I liked maxing W 1st. Any ori mains out there that want to set me straight?

I'll ask Khazem for you but he maxes Q in his guide. His Ori is prty good so he'd probably know.

You generally max Q first because ball positioning is very important and reducing the cooldown to reposition it often is very useful. It also allows you to constantly poke your opponent for a very low mana cost. Maxing W increases your poking strength and can be done when dominating your lane to just kill over and over.

I would suggest reading Khazem's guide: http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/orianna-mathematical-errors-which-im-about-to-correct-232223

It specifically answers this question for a bunch of matchups in the matchup section. I found that really useful. :)
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
