Build, runes, synergies, counters, lore. Azir is a powerful emperor and mage champion in the popular game “League of Legends.” He wields the power of the sun to control the battlefield and defeat his enemies.

General Description

Azir is a control mage who specializes in dealing area of effect (AOE) damage. He has a unique playstyle, as his abilities allow him to create and control soldier units that deal damage to enemies. His Q, “Conquering Sands,” creates soldiers that deal damage to enemies in a cone, while his W, “Arise!” sends soldiers to attack a target.

Azir Build

Azir benefits from items that increase his ability power, such as Rabadon’s Deathcap or Morellonomicon. He can also opt for items that provide additional magic penetration, such as Void Staff or Deathfire Touch.

Azir Runes

In the rune tree, Azir can run Sorcery for more ability power or Domination for more burst damage. He can also choose Electrocute as his keystone for added burst damage.

Azir Synergies

Azir pairs well with champions that can provide additional crowd control, such as Alistar or Nautilus. He also works well with champions that can take advantage of his AOE damage, such as Jinx or Kog’Maw.


Azir struggles against champions who can interrupt his abilities and burst him down quickly. To counter him, it is important to dodge his soldier units and engage him when his ultimate, “Emperor’s Divide,” is on cooldown.


Azir was once the emperor of Shurima, a powerful empire that ruled the desert sands. However, he was betrayed and buried alive, only to be resurrected centuries later by the ascension of the sun. In the Rift, he uses his powers to reclaim his throne and bring glory to the fallen empire of Shurima.
