Ahri – A Review And A Guide

Posted: January 13, 2012 by xenocidebrm in Champions, Guides

Ahri is one of those champions you look at in lane and cringe at. She doesn’t do insane damage, she doesn’t beat every champion, and she certainly doesn’t have the best sustain. However, she is a good Jack-of-all-trades, except she’s more of a Queen than a Jack, being better than average at virtually everything. (more…)

Upon deeper inspection, I realized that many of the terms and phrases have implications beyond the prima facie.
