Ahri may be labeled as an assassin but she may be better played as a more traditional mage. Her burst isn’t that high and she can be stopped if caught unable to rely on Spirit Rush. However she can disable an enemy with her Charm, which allows her to effectively kite melee and even ranged champions. Overall, she isn’t an easy mage to play but she has useful and fun abilities to add to a team.

  1. Hi Zero do you think ahri will be on sale any time soon?

    • Ahri was on sale last August, between the 9th and 12th. Since then 72 of the 116 champions have been on sale. Therefore, it would take 44 champions, around 14 sale or weeks, which is a bit over 3 months and a half to have all champions discounted before Ahri could be repeated.

      Of course, this is pure maths as sales could repeat champions due to events or other reasons. As a very rough estimate it may take a while for Ahri to go on sale. Depending on how much IP you gather you could get her much faster with IP instead of waiting for a sale. You can always pay full price but as she’s an expensive champion an alternative is always worth considering.

      For example, you could gather IP until a skin you are interested in goes on sale. That way you can get both and maybe you will only have to pay for the skin at a discount as you might have enough IP.
