No, Ahri has amazing mobility and good burst on her fox-fire, good poke on her Q, super strong cc on a thin single target skillshot, bad players just can't play her though, which is what she's meant to be... high skill cap.

Well, by that logic Pantheon has some of the best mobility in the game, cooldown aside. I honestly think outside of her ult shes way too easy to escape for an assassin type. Blitz with his speed up + shrine can almost outrun her E projectile speed trololol.

Mobility? What mobility? Her in-skill is her out. That's terrible mobility. You need to use her ultimate to fight and do damage. After that, you have no means of escape for over a minute. That is bad mobility, my friend.

If you reserve her ultimate just for running away, then you are no better than Nidalee the Useless, who throws a spear once every 10 hours and then pounces away back to her respawn point to heal.

What's with the nidalee hate . She doesn't get enough credit.

Assuming you land all her skills in the perfect scenario.... math is still against her

She definitely does not seem to be a strong 1v1 champion, that's for sure. Her burst isn't at the same level of Akali or LeBlanc, while her utility is really no better. Her passive isn't terribly exciting in a 1v1 fight as only gets the heal AFTER landing all her skills, and is way worse than Akali's overall. It's a pure laning skill. IMO they really messed up her ultimate. Something more interesting would have been nice, but I guess that's too much to ask since Riot apparently used all their creativity up on Fizz.

All in all, doesn't seem like she was designed with Dominion in mind.

Oh, forgot to mention that. Her passive is horrible for dom, may as well not even be there.

I think we can all agree that she leans slightly on the weaker side for a new champ. Her AP scaling is horrible.

Orb of Deception (+0.32 per ability power)
Fox-Fire (+0.38 per ability power)
Charm (+0.35 per ability power)
Spirit Rush (+0.3 per ability power)

saying ahri's ult makes her mobile is like saying malphite's ult makes him mobile

It's quite surprising, to be honest. The designer of Ahri is the same guy who created Kassadin and Ezreal (remember pre-nerfed Ezreal? Oh god...). You would think Ahri would have a shred of power level akin to these previous creations, but she's no where near them.
