This is the best designed champion I have played to date. She is a seriously good champion, very enjoyable, and has a lot of options in any given situation. As a solo mid, I did not find any problems playing against any other champion, and if I felt there were going to be potential issues I focused more on roaming. As a solo top, I found her farm was outstanding, allowing me to get my core items very quickly.

If you guys don't mind, please help support the series by leaving your thoughts in this thread on the official League forums:

I'd place her in league with Lee Sin in terms of having a high skillcap. There are things I can improve on with her, such as better managing the return path of Orb of Deception and landing Charm more reliably at close range (I'm personally much worse with melee range skillshots than long-range ones). I could also improve on utilizing all three Spirit Rush jumps to the best positions at all times (most times I do well, but sometimes I have to use Flash when a better jump would have secured the kill). There are a bunch of little things I can improve on as well.

It goes without saying that you're going to have to land your skillshots, but smart casting and using your ult to position make this easier. So does practice. I suspect a lot of the people upset with Ahri right now simply need to take the time to get better with her shots.

I would feel very comfortable maining her in ranked games. I understand that a lot of high ELo players consider her very good; I agree with them. I'd love an excuse to continue playing her while I move onto other champions for Don't Feed.

I'll have the Ahri build guide done soonish. I think now is as good a time as ever to make sure that's a polished presentation rather than what the Nunu build guide wound up being.

DF Ahri was an exceptionally long project due to her mechanics. She was genuinely well designed. I also put a little more time into polishing the templates from Nunu.

I'm going to follow this up with Renekton most likely, as I really enjoyed him and have already played several matches with him. I had previously worked on Kassadin and I may get back to him soon as well.

Help people learn about this series by sharing your thoughts on the official LoL forum thread:


Don't Feed is a video series that covers champions in greater detail than the Champion Spotlight. This series is descriptive, not prescriptive, meaning that I aim to provide you with solid information without telling you which items, runes, or masteries are best (as these frequently change). With this information, you can better play against these champions, and you may be interested in learning to play them. Even after more than a thousand games, I am still learning new things about these champions by making these videos, and I'm sure the vast majority of LoL players can learn a lot from these.

My goal is to provide these videos for all champions in League of Legends.
