Since then, Azir’s pick rate skyrocketed globally, being the 10th most picked champion in the mid lane, and everyone wanted to emulate LoL GOAT’s moves in the mid lane.
However, with Azir’s new players testing the champion, his win rate plummeted to last place in the mid lane at 46.64%. After all, Azir is rated as a very difficult champion, but achieving it on Summoner’s Rift can be extremely rewarding.
If you want to improve your game with Azir and play a little more as Faker, here is a little guide on how to win with Azir.
In Summoner’s Rift, Azir’s passive, Shurima’s Legacyis often used to create a new Sun Disk from the remains of an enemy or friendly turret, giving it the same health and damage as a standard turret.
Use it to lure your enemies into a battle beneath Azir Tower, where you will deal additional damage if you manage to lure them. Because the tower deals additional damage, it can also be used as a defensive mechanism in case of a side lane gank. It’s also useful for split pushing, as it can join your attacks against minions.
Your W, Emerge Sends a damage-immune soldier to the targeted location, instantly attacking adjacent enemies. Due to its low mana cost and AOE damage, Arise can be used to clear waves.
You can use it to push enemies out of Azir’s range, and since it deals area-of-effect damage in a straight line, you can use it to attack groups. In addition to this, it can also be used to check the face of walls and provide vision.
Make sure opponents cannot see your soldiers, as this will give away your position. To avoid detection, maneuver out of range so the troops disappear early.
Azir can relocate his sand troops to damage and delay opponents with his Q, Conquering sands. Use it to attack distant opponents. It’s another awesome wave clearing tool that hits as many minions as possible. Try to hit the champions while they are gathered.
To deal reliable damage, use W closer to an opponent, auto-attack, then quickly use Q and auto-attack again.
E for Azir, quicksand, makes him run towards the chosen sand soldiers, protecting him and wounding all the enemies he passes through. His run is interrupted when he hits an opposing champion and gets a charge of Get Up.
This is your main tool for closing gaps, escaping and creating games. Use it on walls to have a better chance of chasing and escaping. However, this has a long cooldown, so only use it to escape ganks or close out a kill, especially during the laning phase.
Azir can also cast other abilities during his dash, opening up the possibility of multiple combos.
His R (Ultimate), Emperor’s Division, Throw a wall of troops at Azir, damaging and knocking down all opponents. The wall serves as terrain for five seconds. Your allies can pass through it, but enemies cannot.
This excellent peeling tool protects Azir against threats. It even partially covers your back, making landing easier. Recoil can push adversaries to overcome thinner barriers. It can be used aggressively to deal damage and have the ability to draw opponents to your team.
These are some of the best combinations you can use to execute some great Azir plays:
Chase and Escape Combo: WEQ

Push: WQ-Auto Attack
This is a powerful combination to trade with long-range champions. In particular, the Arcane Comet, Summon Aery and First Strike runes are optimal for this.
Complete Ultimate Combo: WEQRW Auto Attack
Start with E, Shifting Sands, followed by Q, Conquering Sands, to close the gap. Then follow up with R, Emperor’s Divide, to sweep the enemy back.
Place a W, stand up, soldier on the swept enemy and continue with your soldiers’ auto attacks. Apply this combo to multiple enemies, effectively sweeping them towards your team, and they better drag squishy carriers towards your team.
Random Shurima: WEQR
Timing is important for this movement. Position your soldier so that he is facing the enemy or behind him. During your run, spam Ultimate and Emperor’s Divide. While difficult to implement in-game, this strategy puts you in much less danger than your previous combo.

Add Mejai’s Soul Stealer, Nashor’s Tooth, Cosmic Drive, and Horizon Focus. for peak AP power and combine it with Shadowflame, Rabadon’s Deathcap and Void Staff.
A new build that some players are looking at during the most recent PBE is the Split push construction, where you can use items like Statikk Shiv, Nashor’s Tooth, Lich Bane, Hullbreaker, and a mythic item for mana. Lethal Tempo and Legend: Alacrity are the best runes for this build.
Azir has an interesting combination of ideal runes, as it is made up of 4 main runes: Conqueror, Electrocute, Summon Aery and Arcane Comet. Conqueror will help in long fights and exchanges, while Electrocute is for quick bursts of damage and short exchanges.
Meanwhile, Summon Aery is better for constant harassment in the laning phase and can take advantage of weaker lanes. Finally, Arcane Comet is the best option against very long range champions.
Other options you can consider are Lethal tempo, rain of swords and first blow—But check this out in PvP to see if you’re comfortable with them.
