    Do You Think We're Gonna See Azir As Jungler?

    I haven't been able to play lol since he came out but I've been reading Mobafire Guides and info about him. so you people who've seen him in game, Do you think he can be a good jungler? I think he can do some nice Ganks with his combo but again I haven't seen him my self so I can't tell.

    I tried and tried to make him a simply does not work early game. You could possibly give him AD to help this but early game...he can't swat a fly in the jungle. His soldiers actually do more harm than help when jungling early. He has no abilities to help him jung early (cause his soldiers pass 0 on hit effects). I can see him at best a secondary/ sometimes jungle, once you power up some and your soldiers actually can do more damage for you.

    Note: Even items like Statikk Shiv or help from Braum (his hit them to slow/ freeze an enemy) do nothing if your are hitting with your soldiers to try and make these attacks work.

    I suggest that Azir should be used as a Midlaner or an Support, AP Tank only

    The reason for being midlane (which is his main role)because of his W range and can cut off Champs like Katarina and Akali from farming if combo'ed with 1st

    Support because of your, again, W your Enemies cannot go near you and your ADR or whatever
    plus your 1st can slow enemies down making it more easier for your lane partner to kill and your 3rd and ultimate can be very helpful for the team (especially for Yasuo)

    AP Tank because your W, Q, E, R combo will be your Set or Clash starter and as a clash starter you need to be tanky, plus your 3rd's shield is based on your health. pretty important, and you may be tanky, but late game, your W will hurt like a AD with only an IE and Bloodthirster(damage only not Unique) build if you do this item Build

    Doran's Ring, Ionia's Boots, ROA, Rylai's Crystal, Warmogs Armor, Thornmail
    Then replace Dorans Ring with Frozen Heart or Banshee's Veil or Spirit visage

    then you are good to go :D

    I doubt it. He really struggles to survive against the jungle minions which can chunk him relatively fast. To counter that, most squishy jungle champs kite, but Azir can't do that easily because of how static his soldiers are.

    Correct, I tried to jungle Azir during Co-op vs AI

    didn't work out..
    i was forced to use up all my healing pots before i could even get to battle the Red Lizard, my health is even 200 below after I killed the Blue Golem, and that was not a hard leash.

    but if he was a Burst Champ and had sustain skills, he whould be a good jungler

    At the very least i think he will be seen in top lane

    He really seems like he would be good at it, his soldiers can fight the jungle minions and he can use his ult to go behind someone and stop them from getting away.
