I'm planning to work on the matchup section at some point when I get more free time between streaming and work. When that happens I will add Sett to matchups.

Also, I don't exactly seem to like the inspiration runes, just because they're not my style, so do you think you could add another few runes choices, such as domination with sudden impact and other runes?
And also, maybe support runes for ornn, such as font of life.

If the Inspiration tree isn't your style, experiment with it. This is my guide which reflects my personal preferences for a champion, hence me including only the options I'd really use most of the time (there are exceptions every once in a while). Domination tree isn't really that beneficial for Ornn as you don't do much with the penetration you get from Sudden Impact and in general the other trees are just better for Ornn. You could potentially go Precicion with Legend: Tenacity and Triumph or Presence of Mind or Sorcery with Manaflow Band and Transcendence.

You can go for Font of Life if you feel like you won't get value out of Demolish in lane phase.

Wait, so You upgrade abyssal mask and forgefire cape when using ornn right?
That's usually how I do it, I upgrade either of them, depending on the enemy if they're AP or AD, but if the enemy is mainly AP/AD, and I only build Abbysal/Forgefire, then what second item do I upgrade?

Those 2 upgrades are probably the ones I go for most often. Frozen Fist is fine into AD fighters you can actually trade with a lot due to the Sheen proc, however Forgefire Cape is just a really good option since it gives you HP as well. If you want to go more supportive against AP then you have the option of going Circlet of the Iron Solari.

Could you please add a section for how to play Ornn during the various parts of the game, being Early, Mid, and Late game?

I'll work on that soon! Should be out in the next few days or potentially today!

Since aftershock is good against poke, is it good against irelia? Because she usually pokes a lot

PH45 (37) | April 29, 2020 6:37am
Aftershock is fine, but I'd say Grasp of the Undying is a good choice in that matchup too as you get more damage in your trades. However Irelia being really strong at the moment, she will most likely just all in you after she gets a few of her core components/items so I'd be careful with that.

Ornn passive here is outdated. Ornn gets his stuff for Free at Lvl. 13, and needs to reach Lvl before being able to upgrade one of his Allies's Items, going from there he can upgrade one more, per Level past 14.
The Allys will always get the Item upgraded which the bought first.

Isn't that exactly what the guide says? Only thing that it was missing was that the first bought item is upgraded, but other than that it was up-to-date.

"At level 13, any upgradable item Ornn owns or purchases for the rest of the game is upgraded for free (limited to two upgraded items). At each level from 14 and onward, Ornn can upgrade one of his ally's upgradable items (limited to 1 per teammate)"

Not to be a clever *** XD, but it might be usefull that u include how in any type os squirmish, Britle can be triggered to deal the dmg effect twice: hitting ultimate both times (first hit aplies britle, second hit deals 1rst britle dmg and knock up) and then by Q-W-E (if hit terrain, or the rock from Q) / Q-W-E-AA (first one doesnt need auto-attacks since britle dmg aplies when E lands by hitting terrain).
I know it makes sense and may be obvious, but as lvl 56 "summoner", it isnt until u think about it and try it out at the practice tool.

Hey,how you doing? I recently though if we could rework the matchup section together if we both have time, what do you think?
1
[-]
PH45 (37) | February 1, 2020 3:03am
That could be a good idea since some matchups might've seen some changes/new stuff has come out. I'm a bit busy with streaming/school at times but I'm sure I can make time for the matchup revamp.

Same here, currently quite busy with my driving license and university. Just DM me here or on LoL (SenseiWu1708, EUW Server) and we manage to plan when we both can do the matchup revamp.

When should i take Iceborn gauntlet instead of sunfire. I am interested because of the fact that i really like the sheen passive and i think that Iceborn is generally cool.

What makes sunfire so good is that it will constantly keep your grasp up and makes you a huge lane bully if you play your cards rights and you dont even need to fully upgrade it. Even against an ap laner, u can buy a bami cinder in lane(preferably after a trade so you get some base hp back), and just sit on that while u buy components to abyssal mask. unless you are really curbstomping your laner or their team is all ad dreamteam, the extra mana and armor isnt really worth it. if you want utility, righteous glory is better as you can still get the slow and be able to gap close.

Hello! Sorry for the late answer as I've been a bit busy lately with managing school and streaming :P

I think Iceborn Gauntlet is a good pickup if you are fighting in lane a lot since you'll be proccing Sheen a good bit in trades giving you extra damage. Also Iceborn Gauntlet helps you stick onto more slippery targets so considering it against champions with decent mobility in lane can be a good choice. Only con is you'll be more squishy due to the lack of HP you'd get from Sunfire Cape, but the damage output you get in return is really nice.
