Key Insights
  • Azir
    P
    's turret loses 100 Armor if Azir dies or moves too far away.
  • Azir
    E
    's dash can be extended with
    Azir
    Q
    .
  • If Azir hits an enemy champion during
    Azir
    E
    , the dash ends and he gains a charge of
    Azir
    W
    .
  • Azir
    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
    Azir
    Q
    lets him reposition Sand Soldiers to deal damage and zone the enemy.
  • Spikes at level 13 with both
    Azir
    Q
    and
    Azir
    W
    maxed. The lower cooldown and recharge timer, respectively, allow Azir to play aggressively from a safer distance.
  • Azir
    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.
  • Excels with items that enhance his magic damage, survivability, and control.
Weaknesses
  • Once
    Azir
    Q
    is used, Sand Soldiers cannot move for a while, which can be punished.
  • Weak at level 1 since he only has access to
    Azir
    W
    until level 2.
  • Azir
    E
    has a longer cooldown of 22 seconds at rank 1. Once used, he can be punished.
  • Forcing Azir to use
    Azir
    R
    defensively lowers his teamfighting potential since he won't have any playmaking capabilities.
