Ashe is a marksman who usually played in the dragon lane as an ADC (attack damage carry).
She mainly does physical damage and has some crowd control with her passive and ult.
Players need to build attack speed and sustain, with items like Blade of the Ruined King, Runaan’s Hurricane, and runes like Fleet Footwork.

Ashe went live on the Wild Rift servers as part of the original champion roster before Sept. 2020. She is a marksman who usually played in the dragon lane as an ADC (attack damage carry). Ashe mainly does physical damage (AD) and her passive causes basic attacks to slow enemies. She also has some crowd control abilities and is easy to play with. Players need to build attack speed and sustain, with items like Blade of the Ruined King, Runaan’s Hurricane, and runes like Fleet Footwork so players need to build around this. 

Wild Rift Ashe's skills, how are they different?

While most of Ashe’s skills are similar to her version in League PC, but in Wild Rift, her ultimate can be steered (like Yuumi Prowling Projectile, with a turning radius more similar to Sion’s Unstoppable Onslaught). Her second skill volley now fires 11 arrows instead of the standard nine. 

(Passive) Frost Shot

Ashe's attacks slow their target, causing her to deal increased damage to these targets. Ashe's critical strikes deal no bonus damage but apply an empowered slow to the target.

(1) Ranger's Focus

Ashe builds up Focus by attacking. At maximum Focus, Ashe can cast Ranger's Focus to consume all stacks of Focus, temporarily increasing her Attack Speed and transforming her basic attack into a powerful flurry attack for the duration.

(2) Volley

Ashe fires 11 arrows in a cone for increased damage. Also applies Frost Shot.

(3) Hawkshot

Ashe sends her Hawk Spirit on a scouting mission anywhere on the map.

(4) Ultimate - Enchanted Crystal Arrow

Ashe fires a missile of ice which she can steer in the air. If the arrow collides with an enemy Champion, it deals damage and stuns the Champion, stunning the enemy hit for longer the farther the arrow has traveled. In addition, surrounding enemy units take damage and are slowed. 

Her kit revolves around her auto-attacking the enemy, applying the Slow effect from her passive and Volley, and chipping away at their HP with Ranger's Focus. She can stun enemies with her ultimate, which can make for some great engages, all across the map. 

One very important skill players need to learn with Ashe is to kite enemies. Kiting means adjusting your positioning in between firing auto attacks and abilities. This makes sure the player is within a safe distance from the enemy. Ashe is a very squishy ADC, this means that she can easily be killed if she is focused on. Remember her ultimate can also be fired defensively. The stun it applies can be used to, for example, stun assassins chasing you

Since Ashe’s ultimate is global, she can provide a lot of utility across the map or snipe a low health enemy from far away. Hawkshot is a good tool to scout areas as it gives players vision. Use it to look for incoming ganks in the lane or check on objectives like dragon or Baron.  

Level up your second skill, Volley. This gives you a lot of poke in the lane to slowly reduce your enemy’s health. Make sure to track how much mana you use, at early levels Volley costs you a lot of mana to use. Max your first ability Ranger’s Focus to kite enemies and of course, put a point in your ultimate skill whenever possible. Take Heal and Flash as your Summoner Spells, these are standard on any ADC. The best runes for Ashe in Wild Rift are Fleet Footwork for your keystone, followed by the Brutal, Regeneration, and Manaflow Band for Minor Runes.

Runes, summoner spells, and items

Go for a full damage build with Blade of the Ruined King and complete your Gluttonous Greaves with a Quicksilver Enchant and to finish up your Core Item Build will be a Runaan's Hurricane. Players can also get a Bloodthirster for more sustain and round off with an Infinity Edge which will give her a lot of crit damage. For a defensive item, build Guardian Angel

Blade of the Ruined King enhances her slow with its passive and also gives Ashe 30% more attack speed and 30 attack damage. The boots will give her lifesteal and the Quicksilver enchant is also great for getting rid of crowd control effects. Runaan’s Hurricane increases her crit damage and attack speed. Infinity Edge is great for increasing her overall crit strike with its passive and Guardian Angel gives her 40 Armor and 45 Attack Damage and the passive resurrects you. You can get resurrected with 50% HP and 30% base mana. However, this item has a 3-minute cooldown so build it as a last item.
