Threats to Aurelion Sol with this build
Aurelion has been devastating the midlane in soloqueue for months now, especially in Korea! He constantly sits at around 54-56% win rate and carries any game that he gets ahead in. Hopefully once you read this guide you will see success with everyones favourite blue space dragon!
Aurelion has a constant mana burn with his W toggle. Getting CORRUPTING POTION from level 1 helps combat this and allows you to aggressively cs while poking.
HEXTECH GLP is the perfect item for Aurelion, the slow plays perfectly into his kit for escaping/hunting down enemies and the unique passive scales well with his W toggle.
STOPWATCH allows you to roam bot and dive with your Q/R. Having stopwatch allows you to take a significant amount of tower aggro while your ADC hopefully secures the kill.
BOOTS OF SWIFTNESS is the best fit for Aurelion again based purely on his roaming capabilities/movement speed. Having these ensures swift escapes and strong lock downs on kills.
RYLAI'S is amazing on Aurelion as it turns you into a kiting ice dragon of death. This mixed with your Phase rune makes you untouchable.
LIANDRIES makes gives you a constant burn and works especially well when combined with Rylais. The base stats also help make you less squishy!
LUDENS ECHO helps give you great wave clear and sustain in lane. The passive stacks quickly on Aurelion.
These items are all meta in lane but you can always have fun while taking advantage of Aurelions crazy movement speed! A Spellbinder/Shurelya's reverie can sometimes go a long way if you get ahead early!
[*] Ridiculously high movement speed
[*] Consistent damage in teamfights
[*] Very rarely picked/rarely banned
[*] Roaming potential can snowball other lanes.
[*] Players are unaware of how to counter/pick against
[*] Great amount of unexpected CC
[*] CC negates W/makes him squishy.
[*] Hard learning curve as the champion is very unique.
[*] Can go oom easily if W not managed correctly.
I like to take ignite most lanes due to the healing reduction and for finishing off chase kills.
Flash is a must have for Aurelion purely for escape from ganks.
Ghost can be taken over ignite depending on playstyle. It helps with roams but sometimes it falls off due to Aurelion already having crazy movement speed!
Phase Rush is perfect for Aurelion due to his general high movement speed. This rune helps him escape and hunt down enemies - This is especially good with Rylais. Adept use of this rune can turn Aurelion into a roaming god.
Nullifying Orb helps take away some of that squishyness that Aurelion has. This will allow more aggressive dives/roams without the fear of getting instantly killed.
Celerity caters completely towards Aurelion due to him building/passively having movement speed. Its perfect for him.
Scorch gives you that extra bit of damage in lane when trying to trade/poke down your midlaner.
SECONDARY RUNES - PRECISION:
TRIUMPH - This is fantastic to have for diving/roaming botlane. This extra health can mean the difference between a fantastic trade or a terrible gank! Also the extra gold adds up throughout the game!
COUP-DE-GRACE - This is great for finishing off kills or engaging teamfights when enemies are low.
