Azir counter tips

General advice on how to play against Azir
These champs are strong against Azir at most phases of the game. They’re listed based on their win rate against Azir.
Laning Against Azir

Laning Against Azir

Avoid standing too close to Azir’s Soldiers Arise!W as he can auto attack you from afar. When he places a Soldier Arise!W, move to a safer position out of its range.

Go for a trade after Azir’s Soldier Arise!W has disappeared. It’s best to wait for the Soldiers Arise!W to disappear first before fighting him as his damage output will be decreased.

After level 6 keep a keen eye on the map and Azir’s mana bar. If you spot the enemy Jungler nearby, back away as Azir might try to Shurima Shuffle and set up his Jungler.

Strategy VS Azir

Strategy VS Azir

Azir will try and delay a team fight and poke you down with his Arise!W as much as possible before his team initiates. Don’t let him poke you down by starting the fight as soon as possible rather than delaying it.

CC is your best friend to counter his engage and the Shurima Shuffle. If he goes in, try and CC him as fast as possible to shut him down and prevent him from pushing your team towards his.

After his first back, Azir is going to be pushing constantly. Try and pick champions that have kill pressure and can match his wave clear so you do not lose your Tower early on.

Azir Power Spikes

Once Azir has picked up his Nashor's Tooth, he is going to push the wave really quickly. Try to keep the wave as even as possible by matching his damage on the minion wave. If he uses an ability, you’ll need to use one too.

The best time to fight Azir is when Soldiers Arise!W are down. This is because he will lack a lot of damage. Try to start fights whenever he has no Soldiers Arise!W available.

After Azir hits level 6, he will have a lot more protection and can disengage quite easily thanks to his Ultimate Emperor's DivideR. While his Ultimate Emperor's DivideR is down, try to abuse the cooldown and look for kills.
