[13.5] | The Weapon Of The Faithful Guide | Season 13

By Alvatorz
Hey everyone, i'm Tyspect, league player of 21, i'm also French so sorry if there is some error is the guide.

I've been playing league since season 6 but started it seriously since season 8.
Last season i've been grinding to Diamond 2 with champions like Jhin , Zeri or Aphelios

So without further ado, let's get into it !
Early Game
For the first level, just play passiv. It's really important for you to poke a little bit with your Calibrum , because it has a long renge, almost bigger than caitlyn, so use this to poke ennemy champions.

A little tips for your games, if you need to help the jungler at red or blue, use your Severum weapon to stack shield, then when you'll go to lane, you will be able to poke annemy laner without taking a lot of damages.

When you hit level 2, you NEED to go in, say it to your support, use your Q to poke, then your Q with Severum to maximize the damage while healing yourself at the same time. Trust me, level 1 Aphelios in a minnion but level 2, it's a monster.
Mid Game
You're still alive ? No one is inting or afk ? Nice ! Then we're now in mid game. This is your time to shine, now you do have 2 or 3 items , you can kill everyone, if you have your ultimate , don't hesitate to chose your weapon carefully. Infernum , Gravitum and Crescendum are the best if you're going to be in teamfight.

Don't forget to check my "combo" page bellow, if will help you to maximize your damage in any situations.
Late Game
Ohhh, you reached late game ?? Nothing can stop you now. You have all of your items, you're strong as hell, your tank are full items, you can do ravage on the ennemy team now with your AOE and big regen.

Don't hesitate to engage fights with your ult Gravitum or Infernum . Don't try to 1v1 people even if you have Crescendum , i mean, you can if you're sure that they are alone, but who knows what can happen ? :)
The best part of the guide in my opinion, the best combos between the weapons of Aphelios, there is actually 5 combos that i think they are the best. I will rank them from 1 to 5, the first one will be the best.

1. Crescendum x Severum

Those 2 weapons are the best in 1v2 or 1v3 situations. You have to Q with Crescendum just to put a turret that will attack ennemies and heal you, then you Q with Severum wich will heal you AND give you 6 chakrams, then you swap with Crescendum back, and u attack really quickly on the carry. You can also combine it with your ultimate, that will grant you MORE chakram, so more damages !

2. Crescendum x Calibrum

The power of long renge and short renge, cool isn't it ? As you can see in the video, you can put a turret in front of an ennemy and just shoot them with Calibrum to create chakrams, then if they try to come near you, they will be surprised by the damages you'll deal with Crescendum. Of course, use your ultimate to create even more chakrams if they are near you, or use ultimate with Calibrum to kill ennemies at a long renge, don't forget that every chakrams will be sent to the target if you hit someone with Calibrum's Q.

3. Severum x Gravitum

This one is good if you're trying to fight a close champion like Kai'Sa or Vayne, who needs to be near you. Just press Q with Severum, then auto with Gravitum, then press Q and finally auto with Severum or Gravitum if you need slow or heal.

4. Infernum x Gravitum

This combo is not the best, but it's usefull, poke with the flames or Infernum, then press Q to apply some Gravitum orbs, switch into Gravitum, then press Q, and boom, every units whou has been hitten by Infernum are stunned.

5. Crescendum x Gravitum

This one is bad, but it is reallyyyyy fun ! Put a lot of turrets in a bush, then wait your ennemies in it, the turrets will slow them and do a tons of damages. Just press Q with Gravitum to stun champions in the renge of the turret so he will take moooore damages. Tried it in early game, it is deffinitly strong and fun to almost one shot champions.
Aphelios is a really strong champion if you perfectly know how to master it. Never forget that you don't have any mobility, no dash, no invisiblityn, the only thing who's gonna help you is Severum's Q which is giving movement speed while used. Aphelios will need a tons of games to really know how to play him, but you'll see that at the end, you'll be proud of yourself and you'll have a new cool main in your pool !

Thanks for following this guide, it is my first guide so 'ill really apreciate if you let a commentary or just a like on it if you liked it, so now i can only say good luck with Aphelios and enjoy the champion ! Bye !
