Guide to Countering Azir as Lissandra

Tips for Playing as Lissandra against Azir

You can instantly use your ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (alt+R by default).

Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages. As a result, buying items that offer both ability power and defense, like Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil, can be a great choice to help her both survive and deal damage.

Casting Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you will actually go.

Advice to Win Against Azir

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.

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.
