Azir's Trends

Playing against Azir

Key Insights
P
's turret loses 100 Armor if Azir dies or moves too far away.
E
's dash can be extended with
Q
.
If Azir hits an enemy champion during
E
, the dash ends and he gains a charge of
W
.
W
's Sand Soldiers last 10 seconds but expire twice as quickly if they're under an enemy turret.
Strengths
Scales well and has a strong laning phase. Level 2 with
Q
lets him reposition Sand Soldiers to deal damage and zone the enemy.
Spikes at level 13 with both
Q
and
W
maxed. The lower cooldown and recharge timer, respectively, allow Azir to play aggressively from a safer distance.
W
's bonus attack speed is doubled for 5 seconds when 3 Sand Soldiers are out at once, giving him a huge temporary damage spike.
Synergizes well with
Luden's Tempest
,
Zhonya's Hourglass
,
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
,
Horizon Focus
, and
Rabadon's Deathcap
. Can opt for
Liandry's Anguish
,
Riftmaker
, or
Crown of the Shattered Queen
when needed.
Weaknesses
Once
Q
is used, Sand Soldiers cannot move for a while, which can be punished.
Weak at level 1 since he only has access to
W
until level 2.
E
has a longer cooldown of 22 seconds at rank 1. Once used, he can be punished.
Forcing Azir to use
R
defensively lowers his teamfighting potential since he won't have any playmaking capabilities.
