Aurelion Sol Build
Best Build Guide for Aurelion Sol
Item Build Description
Additional information on the items
Rod of Ages
- The classic one. With +250hp +60 ability power and +300 mana already providing decent stats, it also has a nice passive which converts damage taken into mana and mana spent into hp regen. The 2nd passive does also rais the items stats. +20hp, +10 mana and +6 ability power every 30sec up to +200 +100 and +60.
This item shines on scaling champions such as aurelion, it also does stack pretty fast.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter - Rylais maybe is the most important item on him. With +350hp and +70 ability power it provides nice stats but most importantly it does slow the enemy by 20% whenever an ability hits the enemy, this also includes Celestial Expansion . This synergizes pretty well and does help you a lot with hiting your stars.
Liandry's Torment - Same as with Rylais, this item does provide almost all the stats Aurelion needs. Your consistent damage output with Celestial Expansion also does synergize extremly well with Liandry's.
Last Item choices
Void Staff - Immensely buffing your damage and granting you percentage mr reduction which helps a lot against tanks.
[stasis enchant] - Standart enchantment. Creating you some space to survive burst and your team some time to catch up.
[aurelion sol:passive] does keep dealing damage while stasis.
Aurelion Sol Runes
Best Runes for Aurelion Sol
Gets triggered pretty easily and gives you insane trading potential. Compared to electrocute the better choice since you procc it as easy at ec but helps you even more in extended fights which is what you want.
Since your kit and item build lacks of lifesteal or sustain, vampirism does fill this hole. It's not much but helps you surviving the laning phase.
Other possible choices are gathering storm (which sucks pretty hard with the current scaling) or weaknes. I whould chose weakness over vampirism
since Starsurge and Voice Of Light do trigger it pretty easily on multi targets. Once you have Rylai's Crystal Scepter your stars also do trigger vamp.
Standart on most immobile champions. Scaling rune which provides great tenacity and some max health, does protect your movement speed.
Basic on most mages. Synergizes well with your aggressive playstyle and loweres your mana worrys.
ZourWR Rune Set
Great for extended fights. Get's stacked pretty easily in teamfights and fits overall more to them.
Buffs your insane scaling even more.
Can be taken if you don't go for Vampirism to get some sustain.
Most of the time you want to roam, pack hunter does benefit your playstyle if you are able to execute ganks.

Aurelion Sol Matchups & Counters
Detailed information on how to play matchups and counters
Without Beat Drop she has almost no counterplay against you. Only her ulti.
Corki does pretty badly against you since his laning phase is pretty terrible.
Bully him out of the lane so that he can't hit his 3 item powerspike that early.
Sounds more awfull as it is. Both of you get a huge powerspike with lv5.
A very skilled Ahri player will manage to a Spirit Rush + Charm combo and dodge your following ult. If you read her good enough to avoid this engage you should win the 1v1.
She will most likely keep standing out range and farm safely until someone ganks her or she will just afk farm to 2 iteam so that she can one-tap you with a flash combo.
But once you get ahead you can bully her pretty hard.
got nerfed she can't oneshot waves anymore, forcing her to spend some more time on the lane. If you manage to avoid her
poke you can poke her again and again with a
+ [aurelion:2] combo just to all in her afterwards.
Keep in mind: She still oneshots you with 2+ items.
It's not TF which is a problem, it's his team which kills you if he lands a yellow one.
During laning phase he lacks or damage or survivability to match you. But against TF ganks never are that far.
Don't let him take the upper hand. Early game just play around his cooldowns, should only be a threat if he gets kills.
Pretty unplayable. A hyper mobile melee assassin which likes early skirmishes, without any problem to enter your private space inside your stars. If you cast your
before he used
Playful / Trickster
you should be pretty dead. Once he hits lv5 he will just one-combo you with his ult.
Play around his Playful / Trickster and buy [stasis enchantment] so that you can survive early all ins.
Has high all-in potential against you. Also does keep up easily with your teamfight potential.
Pre 5 you should have the upper hand but once he finishes his 1st item you should keep your distance from him.
You can snowball out of the lane if you manage to bully him hard enough early game.
Once he hits lv5 his jungler should start playing around him, making laning phase for you very stressfull without vision.
Since you lack of mobility, hitting Unstoppable Force should not be much of a problem for him.
Once he stands inside of your circle you should have a huge problem.
Hiting Abyssal Mask should already win the lane for him.
Good Yasuo player will bully you out of the lane once they hit their powerspike.
Avoid fighting inside of waves and play around his nado. Once he gets 2+ items you should overall avoid him, only fight him if you think you can one-combo him.
Note: His windwall does not block your ult.
If you manage to avoid Shuriken Flip engages you should be able to harass her pretty well but once she hits Lv5 you should avoid long fights with her since she just onetaps you.
With lv5 he has the opportunity to force you into melee skirmishes. If you manage to avoid his ult you should be able to outplay him, bursting him down should only be viable if he fails an engage.
HOW TO PLAY YOUR CHAMPION
In the current Meta, Aurelion Sol managed to become one of the most solid picks in the middle lane. He does pretty well in teamfights, has outplay potential, map pressure and can zone people pretty well. The reason most of you don't play him is that he seems to be pretty difficult to play. With these following tipps it will be much easier to do so.
- Your skill order
W > Q > E , at Lv.1 you start with Celestial Expansion so that you can start with some high range waveclear/poke. Lv.2 you go for your Starsurge , giving you access to your basic trading combo. At Lv.3 you can chose, do you need the backport early or do you want to roam already? Go Comet Of Legend . If not, go Starsurge .
- Your basic-combo
Your basic trading combo is pretty easy. Stun your opponent with Starsurge and burst him with Celestial Expansion . Try to rotate clockwise around your enemy.
Note: Your stars do circle against the clock. So moving clockwise around your enemy does make your stars hit more often.
- Your first-to-buys
If you get forced to backport if you have time to do so (for example if you went Comet Of Legend Lv.3) you can buy an early Catalyst of Aeons what already can be a small powerspike.
By standing sidewise to the wave you can hit every minion with Celestial Expansion at once.
- Some kit related basics
~ Since every champion does have something in his kit to play around, in aurelions case these are his stars. They represent your "private zone". Your Starsurge always explodes at the border of your stars (or if you re-cast it ofc). Meaning that using Celestial Expansion will stretch this border so that starsurge explodes later.
~ Moving the same straight direction buffs your movementspeed. ~ While using Comet Of Legend you can move in a cone-shaped area. ~ You can flash while casting Voice Of Light to replace the hitbox. ~ Voice Of Light does knock the enemy back to the border of your Center Of The Universe . ~ You can cast Starsurge while already flying in Comet Of Legend active. ~ While Starsurge is still flying you also get bonus movement speed.
Comet Of Legend
Your wave is pushed out or if your mates clear your wave for you, look for a roam to sidelane with your Comet Of Legend + Starsurge combo.
Comeet of legends active does also ignore collision, meaning that you can fly around every wall or building, giving you opportunitys to escape from bad situations.
As already mentioned, moving straight buffs your movement speed so nobody will be able to keep up with you. ~ You can end the active early by re-casting the spell but you also can activate Celestial Expansion . This way you instantly have the spell casted while leaving the active state.
- Know your place
Aurelion does not keept up with other midlaner you it's about 1v1's or close combat skirmishes. But he shines pretty well in roaming and teamfighting. So better avoid early skirmishes if you can't be sure to 100%-ly win it. Don't wander off alone and keep staying with your team.
- Your extended burst-Combo
Once you've hit your powerspikes ( Voice Of Light > Rod of Ages > Liandry's Torment ) you can look for opportunitys to fight. Your basic burst-combo:
Q > Ult > W ( Starsurge > Voice Of Light > Celestial Expansion ) - Your ult does knock the enemy back to your outer circle (the one when Celestial Expansion is activated), meanwhile flies your Q to the outer circle to stun the enemy and your stars do the rest. This way you hit everything 100%-ly.
If you want to surprise everyone, combine your Q pre-cast with Comet Of Legend , making it easier to hit your ult.
- Use your map-pressure
As we already know, aurelion sol can fly almost over the whole map. Use this to interrupt fights or the enemy doing drake or baron. If you already own your core items you can also look for a kill or steal.
- Go for flashy plays
As already mentioned, Voice Of Light does knock the enemy to the border of the outer circle. But what if you use it on enemys already standing there? This case your ult does only slow them. But there is a "cheat". If you flash into your enemy while casting Voice Of Light you can still knock back them since you move the outer circle AWAY from your enemy. You also can insac enemys if you cast your ult behind you while flashing behind the enemy.
- He's a beast on the current Patch!
If you want to learn him someday, now is the time. He does pretty well on the current Patch (2.0.0) in both, soloq and competetive.
