Lore"Mercy is a human luxury…and responsibility." - Ahri
Unlike other foxes that roamed the woods of southern Ionia, Ahri had always felt a strange connection to the magical world around her; a connection that was somehow incomplete. Deep inside, she felt the skin she had been born into was an ill fit for her and dreamt of one day becoming human. Her goal seemed forever out of reach, until she happened upon the wake of a human battle. It was a grisly scene, the land obscured by the forms of wounded and dying soldiers. She felt drawn to one: a robed man encircled by a waning field of magic whose life was quickly slipping away. She approached him and something deep inside of her triggered, reaching out to the man in a way she couldn't understand. His life essence poured into her, carried on invisible strands of magic. The sensation was intoxicating and overwhelming. As her reverie faded, she was delighted to discover that she had changed. Her sleek white fur had receded and her body was long and lithe…the shape of the humans who lay scattered about her.
However, though she appeared human, she knew that in truth the transformation was incomplete. A cunning creature, she adapted herself to the customs of human society and used her profound gift of beauty to attract unsuspecting men. She could consume their life essences when they were under the spell of her seductive charms. Feeding on their desires brought her closer to her dream, but as she took more lives, a strange sense of regret began to well within her. She had reservations about actions which never troubled her as a fox. She realized that she could not overcome the pangs of her evolving morality. In search of a solution, Ahri found the Institute of War, home of the most gifted mages on Runeterra. They offered her a chance to attain her humanity without further harm through service in the League of Legends.

Skill OrderThe reason I go Q , W , then E is because your Q is your butter.
After we get E because that way you can get ganks from your jungler or you can land your Q to get that true damage back when it returns.
Then we get W
Reason so you can do your E to charm them. Then after landing your charm you start your W and then right after your Q which will deal A LOT of damage.
After getting 1 on each your main thing to level up is your Q and then your W . Without needing to explain your R when available.
Item BuildsReason why we start with a is because of the AP it gives, the Health and also because of the little Mana Regen it gives you which Ahri needs in the beginning. Unless you can get someone who can jungle without blue like or or you can start with and
For your first back:
I find that getting another + helps you lane really well so you can work up to your . If you do start with and then get 2 .
As stated in first back, you want to work towards that and some wards. That way you can farm up. This item will allow you to gank also when your lv 6 and so you can get a little extra health when needed.
because it helps you gank, gives you health, slows enemy! This is a must after you get your revolver. After upgrade your revolver to a . After that work towards a or depending if you need the cooldowns or the damage.
I always get this item because Ahri needs to dash in and get the most of her ulti, and then people tend to aim her. This allows you to go in without worrying about dying. It also good for those HIGH AD teams.
Is for those HIGH AP teams. This will allow you to counter people like or easily.
The rest is explanatory.
