Guide to Countering Azir as Vayne

Tips for Playing as Vayne against Azir

Tumble has many uses, but it cannot pass over walls.

Condemn can be used to both pin targets to walls to ensure a kill, or to escape a pursuer.

Don't go in first to a large teamfight. Wait for your teammates to initiate.

Advice to Win Against Azir

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

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.

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.
