Azir is a champion in League of Legends.[1]



Shurima's Legacy

Innate: Whenever a Turret icon.png turret outside the enemy team's base is destroyed, a marker is placed above its ruins which can be targeted by Azir.

Shurima's Legacy.png

Innate - Disc of the Sun: Azir can select a marker to construct the Sun Disc above the ruins after a 0.5-second cast time. The Sun Disc will activate after being assembled over 5 seconds.

The Sun Disc functions the same as a standard inner turret, gains 15% AP Attack damage icon.png bonus attack damage, and grants its kill credit to Azir. The Sun Disc's Health icon.png health decays over 60 seconds and loses Armor icon.png 100 armor while Azir is not alive or is too far away.

Azir cannot construct a Sun Disc with the marker while he is unable to cast abilities.

See Pets for more details about the Sun Disc.

  • No additional notes.

Map-Specific Differences
Shuriman Ascendant profileicon.png Ascension differences
  • Azir can summon a Sun Disc in the center of the map provided the Ancient Ascended Ancient Ascended is dead. The Sun Disc will be destroyed if the Ancient Ascended respawns while active.


Conquering Sands

Conquering Sands.png

Active: Azir orders all Sand Soldiers to dash toward the target location, dealing magic damage to all enemies they pass through and Slow icon.png slowing them by 25% for 1 second.

Magic Damage:
70 / 90 / 110 / 130 / 150 (+ 30% AP)

Enemies hit by subsequent soldiers are instead Slow icon.png slowed by an additional 25% per soldier.

Conquering Sands will cast at max range if cast beyond that.




Passive: Azir periodically stocks a Sand Soldier, up to a maximum of 2. Azir also gains Attack speed icon.png bonus attack speed, doubled for 5 seconds if he summons a third concurrent soldier.

Bonus Attack Speed:
15 / 25 / 35 / 45 / 55%
Increased Attack Speed:
30 / 50 / 70 / 90 / 110%

Active: Azir summons an Untargetable icon.png untargetable Sand Soldier at the target location that lasts 10 seconds and grants Sight icon.png sight of its surroundings, expiring twice as fast while within range of an enemy Turret icon.png turret, and expiring instantly if Azir moves too far away.

When Azir selects an enemy in a soldier's attack range, the Sand Soldier attacks in his stead, dealing 50 − 150 (based on level) (+ 60% AP) magic damage in a line. Targets beyond the closest take 25 / 50 / 75 / 100% (based on level) damage. Subsequent Sand Soldiers beyond the first deal 25% damage.

Sand Soldiers cannot attack Turret icon.png structures, Ward icon.png wards, and Noxious Trap.png traps.

Arise! will cast at max range if cast beyond that. See Pets for more details about Sand Soldiers.

  • Nearsight icon.png Nearsighting effects will only allow Azir to perform attacks from soldiers within his own sight radius.
  • Azir must rank Arise! as his first ability, and will do so automatically if he reaches level 2 before ranking an ability.
  • Azir can only command his soldiers to attack if he is able to declare basic attack commands himself, meaning Stun icon.png crowd control effects that disable attacking, such as Disarm icon.png disarm, do not allow him to order his soldiers to attack in his stead.
  • Spell Shield.png Spell shield will block a single attack from the soldiers.
  • Damage to enemy champions from Sand Soldier stabs will draw minion aggro even if the enemy champion was not the primary target.(bug)
  • Attacking with the soldiers will trigger Hail of Blades Hail of Blades.
  • Sand Soldiers will attack the closest enemy to Azir when using attack move (or A + RMB / Shift + RMB) or Acquisition range.png auto-attack.

An exclamation mark (!) will appear above the Sand Soldier's head when within the range of an enemy Turret icon.png turret.

Map-Specific Differences
Howling Abyss icon.png Howling Abyss differences edit
  • Azir will start the game with one point already ranked in Arise!, allowing him to allocate the other two to his other abilities.
ProfileIcon0785 The Thinking Manatee.png Ultra Rapid Fire differences edit
  • Limited to 3 Sand Soldiers active.
  • Charge cooldown set to 4.8 / 4.4 / 4 / 3.6 / 3.2 seconds.


Shifting Sands

Shifting Sands.png

Active: Azir Hybrid resistances icon.png shields himself for 1.5 seconds and Dash.png dashes to the target Sand Soldier, dealing magic damage to enemies he passes through.

Shield Strength:
70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+ 60% AP)
Magic Damage:
60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+ 40% AP)

If Azir dashes into an enemy Champion icon.png champion, he stops and gains a charge of Arise! Arise!.

Azir is not locked out of casting any other spells during the dash.

  • Azir will track the Sand Soldier if they change locations, such as by Conquering Sands Conquering Sands.


Emperor's Divide

Emperor's Divide.png

Active: Azir calls forth a phalanx of soldiers from 175 units behind him, picking up enemies from up to 325 units behind him, charging forward 575 units in the target direction.

6 / 7 / 8 soldiers
Width (charge):
Range model.png 620 / 720 / 820
Width (impassable wall):
Pathing radius.png 750 / 850 / 950

Enemies impacted by the charge are dealt magic damage and Airborne icon.png knocked away over 1 second to a line 650 units in front of Azir.

Magic Damage:
175 / 325 / 475 (+ 60% AP)

When the soldiers finish their charge, they stand as a wall for 5 seconds, acting as impassible terrain against enemies and granting Sight icon.png sight of their surroundings. Azir and his allies can move through these soldiers.

  • The soldier units are spawned only 175 units behind Azir, but do not control the Airborne icon.png knock back directly. Each comes with a missile that travels the same path and conveys the damage and knockback effect.
    • The furthest area (from 325 to 175 units behind Azir) is covered by a separate set of missiles with the same effects.
    • All of the soldiers and their missiles will end the charge prematurely when one encounters Wind Wall Wind Wall / Unbreakable Unbreakable / Blade Whirl Blade Whirl or upon colliding with terrain that they cannot charge through.
  • The charge starts at 0.25 seconds into the cast time.
    • If Azir dies before this point, the soldiers will still form the wall but the missiles will not spawn, therefore not dealing damage or knocking back.(bug)
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the start of the cast time.
  • When the dash of the soldiers comes to a halt, all not-yet-affected enemies on top of the soldiers' landing locations (125 radius) are also knocked back.
  • Emperor's Divide will not be canceled if Azir dies during the cast time.
  • While the soldiers are charging forward, the wall is not impassable terrain.
    • This means enemies that are immune to Airborne icon.png airborne effects can pass through the wall while its moving.
  • The wall will count as terrain for the purposes of 'into terrain' effects (e.g. Condemn Condemn, Dredge Line Dredge Line, Heroic Charge Heroic Charge). This will only affect enemies, allies will pass through the wall in all circumstances, even if knocked into it by an enemy.


Control type Attacks whenever Azir inputs an attack command on a target near them.
Target type Minion icon.png Minion (Untargetable icon.png untargetable)
On-hit effects Sand Soldiers' attacks are not mitigated by Spirit's Refuge.png block or Counter Strike.png dodge, nor while Azir is Blind icon.png blinded.
Spell effects Sand Soldiers' attacks apply spell effects as Death Lotus.png area damage.

Spell Shield.png Spell shield will block an attack.


Spear Attack

Sand Soldiers will strike their spear in a line in the target's direction, dealing damage to all enemies within the area. Their attack passes through by 50 units. There is a brief delay between the command and the attack occurring.


Sand Soldiers expire twice as fast while within range of a nearby enemy Turret icon.png turret, and expires instantly when Azir is too far away.


Whenever Azir declares an attack on a target within 375 units of one of his Sand Soldiers, he instead commands all Sand Soldiers in range to attack.

Control type Turret icon.png Turret (static)
Target type Structure
On-hit effects The Sun Disc's attacks cannot be mitigated by Spirit's Refuge.png block and Counter Strike.png dodge.
Spell effects The Sun Disc's basic attacks apply spell effects as Basic Attack.png basic damage.


Will of the Emperor

The Sun Discs's stats do not have a cap based on game time and are not dependent on the structure's spawn location.

Penetrating Bullets

The Sun Disc gains Armor penetration icon.png 30% armor penetration.

Dodge Piercing

The Sun Disc's attacks cannot be evaded except by effects with Bullet strikethrough.png homing projectile destruction.

Warming Up

Each time the Sun Disc attacks a champion, it increases its damage by 40%, up to 120%. This effect resets 3 seconds after the last shot hits a champion, but it doesn't reset when switching targets.

Warden's Eye

The Sun Disc gains True Sight icon.png true sight; it can see Guerrilla Warfare.png stealthed units within a 1000 radius of it.


If Azir is not within approximately 2000 units, the Sun Disc's Armor icon.png armor is reduced by 100.


  • The Sun Disc can be targeted by Demolish Demolish.

Azir OriginalSkin.jpg
RP 975
Azir was a mortal emperor of Shurima in a far distant age, a proud man who stood at the cusp of immortality. His hubris saw him betrayed and murdered at the moment of his greatest triumph, but now, millennia later, he has been reborn as an Ascended being of immense power. With his buried city risen from the sand, Azir seeks to restore Shurima to its former glory.
