Learn how to play Ashe, one of League’s simplest but most viable champs

All the details on when to volley, when to fire a crystal arrow and how hard to ignore hawkshot

When I first started playing League of Legends more seriously last year, one of the first champions I was told to try out was Ashe. She is, friends assured me, a great introduction to the AD carry role, a consistently strong character and also a champion whose abilities aren’t all that complicated or difficult to learn.

To this day, Ashe remains one of my favorite champs, but one of the great things about League of Legends is that even the easiest-to-learn characters still have a lot of hidden depth.

In the great video above, League of Legends video maker Phy spends 15 minutes walking us through how to play and win as Ashe. It’s a great guide that goes into the perfect amount of detail on why Ashe is powerful, what type of items you should build and how those items work.

Even for someone who’s been playing Ashe (albeit in a very mediocre manner) for over a year, I learned a lot from the video. Will I actually become a better player? Well, let’s not jump to conclusions. But you might!
