How to make the best Ahri in League of Legends

Ahri provided League of Legends the player has a chance to deal incredible damage in a short amount of time. The Nine-Tails Fox is a champion that can be difficult to master, but once you get her kit, she has the potential to be deadly.

Like other champions in League, Ahri uses different items depending on her situation in the game. However, there are still core items that will maximize a player’s chances of success with mid lane.

This is one of the best builds for Ahri in season 12.

Electric shock: Ahri’s ultimate goal in the game is to single-shot enemy champions, especially hardcore champions – most likely gills. She can take down opponents with many skills in a short amount of time, and Electrocute helps you maximize her damage.

The taste of blood: While dealing tons of damage is Ahri’s number one goal, staying alive is also very useful. The Nine-Tails is particularly mobile, so being able to cool off a little while dealing damage will help you stay in combat longer, and after the cooldown expires, deal damage again.

Eyeball Collection: Although there are no great early levels, you should eliminate opponents as quickly as possible to become a deadly champion in the later stages of the game. Getting more magic power through snowballing is a great tool for Ahri.

Ultimate Hunter: Agility is another powerful stat to gather on Ahri. The shorter your cooldown, the quicker you can get back into action. Ultimate Hunter is the best pick on the last branch of the Dominion tree.


Cookie delivery: As mentioned, the first few levels can be difficult when playing Ahri, especially for aggressive champions. You should look for sustainability where you can, so as not to fall behind prematurely. Delivery of cookies can do wonders for survival.

Time Warp tonic: By the time you hit level six, you’ll be an easy target for the enemy junglers, since you’re still not mobile. Time Warp Tonic works well when combined with Biscuits, increasing your chances of getting through the early game without any problems.

Bonus: Twice + nine Adaptive Force and +15 to 140 health (based on level).

Damage Potion

Preserving Ahri early in the game is key to a successful later game transition. Sometimes you’ll find yourself harassed by enemy champions and need to use your abilities, especially Orb of Deception (Q), to clear waves and collect gold from minions. Corrupting Potion gives you both health to survive and energy to deal with creeps.

Essential items

Luden’s Tempest

When it comes to Ahri, there is no better item to build in season 12 than Luden’s Tempest. It has all the essentials of the Nine-Tails: skill strength, agility, ability to penetrate magic and energy. It also has a unique passive that will clear your path and is an extremely dangerous champion in early game skirmishes. This is a must-have item on Ahri.

Rabadon’s Deathcap

Almost every AP champion in League have this item in common. Rabadon’s deathcap not only gives you a huge amount of magic power (120) but also increases your overall magic power by 35 percent. Buying it mid-game is a game changer for Ahri players. It will give you value every time you buy another AP item. It was an irreplaceable item for the Foxes.

Zhonya’s Hourglass

This item is usually judged only by its excellent performance. While this will come in handy for Ahri, especially when fighting assassin champions, Zhonya’s Hourglass also boosts your key stats: magic power and skill haste. It’s a great defensive and offensive tool.

End-game items

Witch shoes

The Sorcerer’s Shoes are the perfect choice for Ahri due to their ability to penetrate magic resistance. This will not only give Ahri increased mobility, but also increase the amount of damage dealt against opponents with magic resistance.


Morellonomicon is the perfect item to ensure high damage, spell-based champions are dealing maximum damage. Item increases stats to 80 ability power and 250 health. This item will also show Ahri inflicting Grief Wounds on her enemies, with her ability slowly damaging them over a short period of time.

Gap staff

The final item for Ahri in this build is the Void Scepter. Once Ahri has built the previous items, she will deal massive amounts of damage with her abilities. Void Staff work to support this increase in output. This item has the unique ability to ignore 45 percent of the target’s magic resistance, a stat that makes Ahri’s ability lethal. Additionally, this item provides 65 extra magic power, which is the perfect way to perfect her build.
