Tips

Playing As Ahri Ahri
Playing Against Ahri Ahri
  • Ahri's survivability is significantly reduced when her Ultimate, Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush, is down.
  • Stay behind minions to make Charm.png Charm difficult to land, this will reduce Ahri's damage potential significantly.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception is Ahri's main farming and harassing tool during the laning phase. The massive movement speed it grants can help Ahri Ahri avoid enemies' skillshots when trading skills.
    • An ideal early game harassment would be Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception + an autoattack (which will proc Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree). This can deal quite a large amount of damage, especially on those who don't have much Magic Resist.
    • Throw Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception backward when running to maximize the duration of the movement speed. This can help when running away or chasing an enemy.
    • Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception's's mana cost is quite high during early game, with a relatively low cooldown of 7 seconds, so it can be tempting to spam this ability which will burn out Ahri Ahri's's mana very quickly. Therefore, it is advised not to spam this ability recklessly.
    • Use the movement speed bonus to steer the Orb on its way back should the enemy attempt to sidestep it.
    • The movement speed is also useful in escaping ganks when her ultimate Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush is not available.
    • It is best to aim Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception at its maximum range to ensure both parts of the ability will hit the enemy.
  • Essence Theft.png Essence Theft will heal Ahri for its maximum potential when used with Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception on a minion wave. The passive helps Ahri stay in lane longer than other mid laners.
  • Fox-Fire.png Fox-Fire is Ahri Ahri's's single target nuke that is best used when at close range to an enemy champion.
    • At rank 1 and 2, Fox-Fire.png Fox-Fire's damage is negligible and has a long cooldown. However, beyond rank 3 it will start to put a hurt on those who dare to charge into Ahri Ahri.
    • Fox-Fire.png Fox-Fire will proc Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree immediately should the 3 spectral flames hit the target, thus making this ability a low-mana cost harassment.
    • Maxing out Fox-Fire.png Fox-Fire first before Orb of Deception.png Orb of Deception is not a bad idea when it comes to extreme melee matchups (e.g.: Yasuo Yasuo, Fizz Fizz, Akali Akali). The secure single-targeted damage (as the ability is auto-targeted) helps Ahri retaliate should they try to engage or juke.
    • Be wary that using Fox-Fire.png Fox-Fire at close range also puts Ahri Ahri into risk of being disabled or worse, bursted down, as she is a squishy champion.
    • Fox-Fire.png Fox-Fire can also be used to charge up Essence Theft.png Essence Theft due to its low mana cost or to quickly kill 3 low-health minions (the flame will split automatically if the damage is sufficient to kill the target)
  • Charm.png Charm is Ahri Ahri's's trademark and only form of disable. It will affect the first enemy hit.
    • Charm.png Charm has a long cooldown and a high mana cost early game. Take great care when using this ability to trade with your opponent as it will burn out Ahri's mana quickly.
    • Setting up a perfect Charm.png Charm for a gank will devastate your opponent,usually resulting in a kill or at the very least force them to use Flash.png Flash.
    • Charm.png Charm can lure the enemy into your turret's range, thus favoring you in a trade.
    • Although Charm.png Charm can no longer disrupt dashes, it can still stop Sweeping Blade.png Sweeping Blade.
    • During teamfights, try to Charm.png Charm the enemies' carries, which will likely result in their death. Alternatively, you can use Charm.png Charm to save your marksman(s) from diving assassins such as Zed Zed and Talon Talon.
  • Ahri Ahri's ultimate-Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush is what makes her slippery and versatile. Use Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush in teamfights to re-position yourself if enemies try to lock you down.
    • With 3 charges of Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush and Flash.png Flash,Ahri Ahri can cover massive distance to close or expand the gap with enemies.
    • Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush can dash through most walls. Use this trick to create shortcuts when chasing or escaping.
    • Focus on using Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush to juke any incoming skillshots rather than damage the enemies as the damage of 3 dashes is still somewhat low.
    • Use the 10-second span after your first use of Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush to wait for your abilities' cooldown then engage your enemies again.
    • In rare scenarios however, Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush's damage can be used to finish off low health champions if other skills are unavailable lest they Flash.png Flash away.
    • Use Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush right where you stand (hover the mouse over your champion) to deal the immediate damage from Spirit Rush.png Spirit Rush without putting yourself into an unfavorable position. Use this technique when your E-Q-W combo doesn't deal enough damage to kill your target.
Mastery Usage
  • Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree is generally the best Keystone for Ahri Ahri, as one spell combo in lane will proc the mastery, adding more damage to her mid-late game burst combo as well as giving her more assassination potential.
