In the final week of August, Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, is the top free champion to play in League of Legends.

To finish the month of August, the free champion rotation in League of Legends features a rather popular mid lane champion. That’s right Summoners, Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, is this week’s top character to play in the free champion rotation.

The mage champion specializes in charming enemy champions and dishing out decent damage once leveled and has her core items created. Ahri currently has a 49.71 percent win rate and for good reason, since she’s able to lock onto enemy champions and again, make her presence known throughout a match.

If you’ve never played as Ahri before, definitely give her a shot since once you master her kit, it’s easy to see why many Summoners have her in their collection. It doesn’t take long to understand how to land her E – Charm which sets everything else up in her kit.

It’s important to stack items up that emphasize Ability Power, Health, and Movement Speed. When it comes to Ahri, the idea is to stick and move and hopefully, catch enemies with E – Charm and then hit them with everything plus the kitchen sink.

More from Champion Rotation

When equipping runes, for the best results, go with Greater Mark of Attack Damage (9), Greater Glyph of Magic Resist (9), Greater Seal of Armor (9), Greater Quintessence of Ability Power (3).

If you’d like the best path towards what items to build, as per Champion.gg, go with: Luden’s Echo => Sorcerer’s Shoes => Morellonomicon => Zhonya’s Hourglass => Banshee’s Veil => Void Staff.

Overall, get ready for a fun champion to take care of the mid lane and hold her own when a team fight breaks out. Ahri excels thanks to her versatility as she can easily win her lane, do well when roaming, and be someone who might not have what it takes to carry a team but be able to bring solid utility especially during the latter parts of a match.
