Additional Azir Build Insights

League of Legends Azir players will likely find him to be a challenging champ to build out properly. You'll notice that his build is modified when he is playing against either diversified or highly focused team compositions, meaning you should not take the same Azir build every game of League of Legends

The most essential items to include in your champ's build include: Luden's Tempest, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Shadowflame. Players who included these pieces in their gear had a higher winrate than players who used other Azir builds. Likewise, if you are fighting a varied enemy team composition, you should strongly consider getting yourself the Sorcery, and Precision runes. In recent games, he won the greatest fraction of his rounds when equipped with these runes.

We set our Azir build suggestions by examining 28,798 recently ranked League of Legends matches with him in them. We only propose the highest winrate Azir builds that were built by ranked gamers enough times for us to suggest them. With so many games in our data, we are quite confident in our suggested builds.
