Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Rod Build : This is a good and beginner Friendly build for Aurelion Sol, Rod of AgesRod of Ages Provides all the stats you need alongside HP/Mana which Aurelion sol needs to scale decently well. You can replace Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment With Rylai's Crystal ScepterRylai's Crystal Scepter If you have troubles hitting Aurelion's Celestial ExpansionCelestial Expansion Consistently. But you have to practice on being Comfortable with it and your positioning/Movement around it.


Liandry's Rush : Overall an amazing build but risky. You won't have the benefits of having Mana from Rod of AgesRod of Ages but if you know how to manage it properly it shouldn't really much of a problem. This build lets you spike earlier compared to the Rod build.

You're Very immobile, You need this to reposition yourself. NEVER use this to chase someone but only to escape unless it's level 1-3
Ignite
Gives Aurelion a better kill pressure.
Exhaust
Good against Zed/Akali.
Barrier
Also good against assassins or burst heavy mages it's better than exhaust on some scenarios.

An easy Matchup for Aurelion considering the others are mostly Skill based/medium ones. His Trades and damages are so obvious to anticipate and the moment he tries to use Pick A CardPick A Card To stun you ready your StarsurgeStarsurge To punish him, since you have better range he will always take minion aggro when he attempts to do it. Just try to look for roams the moment you hit lvl 4 and shove the wave when before doing that.

Aurelion Sol

Playstyle.

What makes Aurelion Unique and fun to play is just basically his Center Of The UniverseCenter Of The Universe  and his Celestial ExpansionCelestial Expansion Aurelion Is a Control mage with great roaming capabilities. if you want to play a mage with an exotic kit then Aurelion is definitely the Champion for you. he mostly excels at roams and teamfighting in general providing good CC and AoE damage though his laning phase is quite weak compared to other champions he's hard to play but definitely easy to master since practicing and mastering your positioning to hit orbs is the key fundamental of generally playing aurelion.

Aurelion Sol

Mechanics/Combos.



Aurelion Sol seems like a narrow Champion if you write it in paper but he surprisingly has a decent amount of them. Starting off to combos.

Voice Of LightVoice Of Light + StarsurgeStarsurge > Celestial ExpansionCelestial Expansion

This is your standard combo. Knocking off enemies with Voice Of LightVoice Of Light will make them airborne for about a second giving a free stun from StarsurgeStarsurge

The image above Is the maximum range of Aurelion Sol knock back. Any opponent before that radius will be knocked back into that radius that is in the exact range of Celestial ExpansionCelestial Expansion it's a way for Aurelion sol to peel for himself against Champions that can engage into him.

Voice Of LightVoice Of Light + Flash + StarsurgeStarsurge > Celestial ExpansionCelestial Expansion

Funnily enough, Aurelion sol can also Kick Ult with flash like lee sin, pog. You ult behind you and flash ontop of them, this will redirect your Voice Of LightVoice Of Light into the place that you flash to. Although this is not really an important combo and the only scenario you can use this is against Zed with his Death MarkDeath Mark but nonetheless it looks cool if you manage to pull it off.


Aurelion Sol

Laning as aurelion

knowing how to lane on a champion that has a slightly weak laning phase is important. I'll note out the general rules that you have to do on aurelion to be a successful in laning.

Establishing a Slow push level 1 is important since this provides key points and timing to roam, being aggressive with your Celestial ExpansionCelestial Expansion to zone out and slowly shove the lane is a must. after setting up a wave you'll definitely want to ward the enemy jungle camp and hard shove the next wave for it to crash at the tower and reset. upon reaching lvl 4 and acquiring Comet Of LegendComet Of Legend should have you looking for roams. But it's ok if you can't and Just ward again instead. But whenever possible immediately use Comet Of LegendComet Of Legend to arrive quickly and possibly turning the tides of that skirmish Against surprise counter ganks by the enemy.

the combos are wrong for example you don't R->Q->W you do Q first then ult for a bigger stun and more impactful one.Not a bad guide but can do more harm then good long term

For the most part tryin to go for a bigger stun just gives them a bigger window to react, R+Q works fine if someone can instantly jump on you and there's no point for you to land a bigger stun.

This guide is made from an outer player perspective not an asol main because twisted faith hard counters him whit his stun and ult. Vs fizz its almost impossible to win 1v1 and ziggs... can't gank...

I agree that some matchups are odd. Here's a few > Annie R and Sol is dead. Annihilates him > Ahri pokes super hard. If she hits R+E u are also dead. > Ziggs super hard cuz his W disengage and Q poke

You have much better presence than him in ganks with Q and R. If you can manipulate the lane decently TF isn't much of a threat at all unless he's dopa or something lol

You can already gank twice before he can even gank at all, you can cheese out E on lvl 3 to immediately gank, his stun barely matters since W has a 1 second CD when maxed.
