Guide to Countering Azir as Viego

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.
