Guide to Countering Azir as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Azir

Elise's Spider Form and Spider Form abilities do not cost mana and can be prioritized when you are trying to conserve mana.

When in Spider Form, Spiderlings will attack the target that Elise uses Venomous Bite on.

Spider Form is most effective at finishing off enemies with low health; Human Form's Neurotoxin does more damage to healthy foes.

Advice to Win Against Azir

Try to think of Sand Soldiers as fire. Don't stand in the fire.

Azir relies on his soldiers to deal damage and can only move them so often. Try to capitalize on windows of time when his soldiers are stationary.

Azir has immense damage over a prolonged amount of time but lacks the upfront burst of other mages. Try to burst him out before he can turn a confrontation around.
