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 during
E
, the dash ends and he gains 1 charge of
W
.
W
's Sand Soldiers last 10 seconds but expire twice as quickly if they're under an enemy turret.
R
can be used backwards after using
E
+
Q
to push enemies into his team (aka "Shurima Shuffle").
Power Spike
Scales well and has a strong laning phase. Level 2 with
Q
lets him reposition Sand Soldiers to deal damage and zone the enemy.
Big spike at level 13 with both
Q
and
W
maxed. The lower cooldown and recharge timer (respectively) allow Azir to play very aggressively from a safe 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.
Spikes well at one item (usually
Nashor's Tooth
or
Luden's Echo
) and spikes harder with each item.
Vulnerable
Azir has no escapes until level 3, leaving him vulnerable to ganks, flanks, and collapses.
Once
Q
is used in lane, Sand Soldiers cannot move for a while, allowing you move out of their AoE and punish him.
Forcing Azir to use
R
defensively lowers his teamfighting potential since he won't have any playmaking capabilities.
