Threats to Aurelion Sol with this build
|Shyvana||She has no dodging or escaping abilities except for her ult. Easy to stun and take down in a counter-gank unless she uses her ult but that will burn her ult in the process.|
Aurelion Sol is mid-range, tanky mage that excels at dealing AoE damage and provides effective AoE Crowd control with his Starsurge & Voice of Light. He's also an amazing ganker because he can build into extreme movement speeds and with his Comet of Legend he can fly across the map avoiding all obstacles. His passive can deal high damage and with his Celestial Expansion his passive can deal even higher damage. He can fit as an amazing jungler and I'll show you why.
This is my first guide ever and Aurelion Sol is a new champion (for now) and many people don't know much about him. Please follow this guide with caution and feel free to comment some feedback. I'm not an expert in LoL, I'm not gold or diamond. Just a simple unranked LoL player that finds this build really effective and wants to help out some beginners that want to play Aurelion Sol. I feel that this guide is mainly effective on low to medium Elo and unranked games. However with some tweaks this guide could be effective to a much further extent.
Pros & Cons
Passives deal hella damage
Easy to push enemies back
Passive helps farm
Movement Speeds build
E makes ganks super easy
Good AoE crowd control abilities
Extremely Vulnerable when enemies are in passive stars
Does not 1v1 well
Squishy at the start
How do I jungle?
Well you start off like almost every other jungler, take on Krugs or the Grump. I recommend taking Krugs and then Red buff because you need your health back. You need a leash because you're too squishy at the start. Don't use your smite on krugs, save it for red buff. If your health is significantly low and you don't want to risk it, take chickens first. Once you have 650 gold, recall and get your stalker's blade.
From there you're good to go, nothing else in particular you need to do as Sol. Just jungle as normal, max out your Strength of the Ages. Get Runic Echoes and you're good to go.
To take down monsters, just keep a short distance, use your Q and then W. This will stun the monsters and your W will deal the damage. Once they start moving disable your W and just AA and let the stars do the work.
Here's a video on how to kill monsters (Red Buff for example)-
Really simple. What I did is that I stunned it with my Q and dealt damage with my W while it was stunned. I also lured it out so that my W could go on for a longer time and so my stars are perfectly positioned to attack the Red Sentinel and it's minion. And last of all I used my smite and got the kill and the health.
How do I gank? (Part 1)
What I like about Aurelion Sol is that ganking is so effective and you can get to your destination in no time with your E. Make your way towards the lane you want to gank. Once you've reached a certain distance that your E can travel to, aim your E at the location of the enemy. Once you start flying use your Q and shoot it to where the enemy is heading. This will stun the enemy and you can use your W and chase him/her down to the death and let your W do the job.
Here's a video on ganking (Bot lane, enemy Renekton example)-
Now, what did I do wrong in this example?
Example Unreliablity Factors -
- Custom bot game
- No teammates
- Bot lane
- Turret down
- Past damaged dealt from previous monsters and enemies (Both me & Renekton)
- Level difference
- Build & Buffs
What Went Well -
- Enemy successfully killed
- Successful flying travel
- W dealt great damaged
- Ult used to push enemy back
- Successful turret dive
What Went Wrong -
- Missed Stun
- Enemy attacked from inside the stars
- Health decreased significantly
- Almost died
- Turret dive required for the kill
Of course this gank wasn't the most realistic nor the most perfect gank. However it was successful but with a couple consequences. I got the kill but I put myself in a very risky situation and almost got myself killed in the process.
How do I gank? (Part 2)
Now, let's investigate on what I did in this gank:
